BCW New Brighton, MN 8/3/2012

Born Champions Wrestling debuted at their new venue this past Friday night, The Mirage Bar & Grill. This venue used to be a VFW and the former home of the Western Wrestling Association. I was really hoping that Sonny Bright or Terrible Terri would show up for this event. Sadly that didn’t happen. Not even the Master showed up.
IMG_2492BCW tag team champions In Shape & Insane defeated Midwest Ground & Air to retain the belts. Rob James got the pin on Nate Bash as Horace kept Benjamin Sailer out of the ring. If heard that one of these four wrestlers will be done with pro wrestling soon.
IMG_2558Zero Kincaid made his return to the ring when he defeated Cougar. I’m not sure where Kincaid has been but maybe he spent some time traveling in a TARDIS as the music he came out to was a metal version of the Doctor Who theme. There were some Whovians in the crowd as they came up with some great chants for this match. Such as when Kincaid got a two count from the referee they would chant “That was Pertwee”. Jon Pertwee was the third Doctor. It would have been really cool if Kincaid would have been matched against the WWA’s Master for this match.
IMG_3282Zero Kincade is not the only whovian pro wrestler. There is another pro wrestler from the Twin cities area who actually has this tattoo on his arm. Any guess’s as to who it is? And if you haven’t yet guessed that I’m a whovian as well then I’ll let you know that I am watching The Science of Doctor Who as I write this.
IMG_2653Arik Cannon defeated Kamikaze Klecker when Klecker was no longer able to compete. When the match moved out of the ring Cannon hit Klecker with a forearm that knocked Klecker to the concrete floor. Klecker hit his head on the floor and blood came pouring out from the back of his head. This was one of the worst blood flows I’ve seen since Horace squirted blood from his forehead at F1rst Wrestling. (What ever happened to F1rst Wrestling? Wonder if we will ever see pro wrestling at First Ave ever again.) Klecker was taken to the hospital after he was able to get to his feet.
IMG_2745Udo retained the BCW Twin Cities championship in a match against The Prophet, Ryan Cruz and Craven Knyte. The end came when Cruz and Knyte hit their finishers on The Prophet and Udo. Cruz then went after Knyte as Udo fell of The Prophet for the pin.
IMG_2993BCW heavy weight champion Darin Corbin continued his streak of beating MN indy vets. This time he faced his biggest challenge in Mitch Paradise. To get the win Corbin once again needed the help of Entourage members Adam Diesel  and Craven Knyte.
IMG_3103Darin Corbin was feeling cocky after his win over Paradise that he challenged anyone in the back to a match. Arik Cannon came out to accept the challenge. Corbin pinned Cannon after a ginger snap.
IMG_3534The main event for this event was a ‘fans bring the weapons’ match between Venom and Bret O’Brian with Judd Jennrich as the special referee. Some of the weapons the fans brought were whips, canes, bag of flour, Best of Arik Cannon vol 1 VHS tape, computer keyboard, Baby Mama DVD, and a lifeguard tube. Whoa nellie, this was a messy match! With the bag of flour and spilt beverages at ring side the bottom of my shoes were covered with with while goo. Venom got the 3 count after slamming O’Brian on to a bunch of thumb tacks.
