MAW Minneapolis, MN 2/16/18

Promotion: Midwest All-Star Wrestling
Time/Date: 8 p.m. Friday February 16, 2018
City, State: Minneapolis, MN
Venue: Parkway Theater

I believe this was the first time that pro wrestling was seen at this 80 year old theater in south Minneapolis. It has not been used as a regular theater in many years. I've been here to watch some Doctor Who episodes and most recently to watch a screening of 1980's Flash Gordon, which is when I found out about this event. It's been cold in the Parkway each time I've been there and this night was no different. I guess the heater has not worked in a while. This event was the last one in the Parkway until the new owners do a remodel. this was my first time at an MAW event as most of their events have been on Sundays.

The first two matches were pre-show 'young lions' matches. They involved 4 of the recent graduates from The Academy of Professional Wrestling.
Rylie Jackson VS Kyle Pro ended in a 10 minute time limit draw.

Brandon Gore pinned JDX.

Tomahawk Kid pinned Officer Rob Justice.

The Maulers (Joseph "Stonehenge" Wayne & Damien Graves) defeated El Tigre & El Angel Dorado.

"Downtown" Petey Brown defeated "Mr Entertainment" Ty Cooper. After the match they were both attacked by JDX and Rylie Jackson. Brown and Cooper got their revenge after intermission.

Aiden Wake pinned Leonard Literacy after some outside help from Sneaky Pete.

Orin Veidt pinned Air Wolf. Veidt had some help from the Maulers. This was the first of 3 events I would shoot at on this weekend.There was one wrestler who was also at all three of those events and that was Air Wolf.

In the main event Garrison Creed defeated Duke Cornell
