Minneapolis Convention Center

Saturday night March 23, 2013
IMG_1867On the morning of this event Extreme Pro Wrestling Radio did a pod cast with a live audience. In the studio were guest Jerry Lynn and Tommy Dreamer. Lynn and Dreamer answered questions from EPWR host Big D and Isaac and then from the fans. You can listen to the pod cast by clicking here.
IMG_2030Luke Hawx, Scot Summers and Perry Saturn defeated Aaron Corbin, John Johnson & Arya Daivari in a 6 man tag match. Saturn pinned Daivari to get the win. This was Summers and hawx first time in MN.
IMG_2171Black Stallion with manager Mago beat Rhino by count out. Mago was interfering in the match so Rhino chased him outside the ring and forgot about the 10 count. After the match Rhino speared Mago.
IMG_2387Blue Meanie & Al Snow defeated Renny D & Craven Knyte. Snow hit Knyte with Head to get the pin. Referees really need to ban Head from ring side.
IMG_2496Sabu defeated Arik Cannon in an Anarky Rules match.Sabu cut Cannon open with some international object. It was 20 years ago and just a mile away from this venue when I first saw Sabu live. He wrestled the Lightning Kid (soon to be know as the 1-2-3 Kid in the WWF).
IMG_2793Darin Corbin defeated Tommy Dreamer in a hard core match. Yep, you read that right.
IMG_2960HOW champion Benjamin Sailer defeated Adam Pearce to retain the title. Pearce pulled a chain out of his boot and tried to use it on Sailer but Sailer go a hold of it and used it to win the match. The crowd was unhappy with Sailer for cheating to win.
IMG_3127The main event was Jerry Lynn’s last match. It was a four way match against X-Pac, JB Trask and Horace the Psychopath. These 4 guys, all over the age of 40, went all out in this match. They did dives out of the ring, broke tables and dented garbage cans. Lynn got the win after he gave Horace a cradle pile driver.

IMG_3370After the match all the wrestlers and HOW crew got in the ring to congratulate Lynn on his great 25 year career. JB Trask presented Lynn with a Heavy On Wrestling Hall of Fame award. This event will be available on DVD from RF Video. I've been doing this blog for over 7 years now and I thought this would be a good time to end it. So with this being Jerry Lynn's last match it will also be my last blog on here.
