NLW St. Paul, MN 12/15/2007

I attended my last wrestling card for 2007 when I went to the Eagles Club in St. Paul, MN this last Saturday night for Northern Lights Wrestling.
Darrel Hall defeated Ace of Harts in the opening match.
Jonny Goldengate beat Derrick Devlin.
Red Lightning & Johnny Riddlin beat Criminal Minds.
Tommy 'Spiderbaby' Saturday retained his NLW Midwest title against 'the upgrade' Jake Taylor.
Paul Van Dyke beat Ian Xavier in a 'salute the flag match'. The loser of the match had to salute the flag of the winners country. Van Dyke is an Iraq war vet and Xavier is a Canadian.
Van Dyke made his debut on 10/02/2005 in Faribualt, MN for Neo Pro wrestling. He was training to be a wrestler and wanted to have his first match before he was sent off to Iraq. In his first match he beat Aaron Corbin.

FLWA Bloomington, MN 12/8/2007

The French Lakes Wrestling Association returned to action at the VFW in Bloomington, MN for a Saturday afternoon event.
Dominick Ether put 'Playboy' Pete Huge to sleep for the win. Ether also goes by the name John Johnson.
Cooter Hayseed beat Sammy Savard by DQ.
Chadwick Wentworth III beat The last of the Carnys JB Trask with a little help from his manager Mago. Once again we have a name change as Wentworth usually goes by The Black Stallion.
Kenny 'the Sod buster' Jay & his granddaughter Korina Kay beat Dan Jesser & Allison Wonderland. The ref for this match may have been a little biased as he is the son of Jay and I believe the father of Kay.
Shimdog (here's a guy who could use a name change. what the hell is a 'Shimdog'?) beat Arya Daivari in a capture the flag match to win the FLWA VFW title. This was a 'anything goes' match that went all over the VFW bingo hall.
Brody Hoofer defeated Mitch Paradise to win the vacated FLWA heavy weight title. Once again manager Mago got involved but this time he hit the wrong wrestler.
