1. Who taught you how to wrestle pro style? I am a product of the MPW camp. Thanks Shifty and Sheriff!(Sailer Vs Shifty 7/6/2003 MPW)

You need to do three things: give someone an immunity belt, vote someone off and pick someone else to make an allince with only to stab them in the back when the time is right. Who are the three people you pick?I would form an alliance with George W by giving him immunity.

F1rst Wrestling's up coming card

I don't usually use this blog to promote up coming cards but I decided to with this F1rst Wrestling show because promoter Arik Cannon made 3 different posters where all but 2 (The Iron Sheik and Arik Cannon) of the photos were taken by me. Also, I had nothing else to post this week. Seeing as how Cannon took the time to make 3 posters maybe you could leave a comment letting him know which one you like the best.
The main event for this card is an 'Anarchy Rules' match between Mr. 6% Body fat Rob James and Horace the Psychopath. These two have been tag team partners but recently split up. Horace started his split from James when he teamed up with fan favorite O.D.B. on the 08/08/08 card. Then on last months card James tried to get Horace to not wrestle Sandman.
In a special challenge match "Playboy" Pete Huge will take on two roller derby all stars. At the last F1rst Wrestling show at First Ave Tiki Torture & Jaw Breaker got into the ring to promote an upcoming roller derby match. Huge came out and told the roller girls to leave his ring. Jaw Breaker had a hand in Huge & Chris Jordan loosing their match to Midwest Ground & Air so Huge challenged both girls to a match.
Before the first bell there will be an autograph/photo session with WWE Hall of Famer Iron Sheik. If you've seen any of this guys shoot interviews then you will not want to miss this chance to meet him in person. This special attraction is being presented by Heavy On Wrestling.

AWF Elk River, MN 2/7/2009

The American Wrestling Federation held February Free For All III this past Saturday night at the Elk River high school. This event was a fund raiser for the Elk River football team.
In the opening contest "Live Wire" Johnny Parks defeated Angel Armoni.
Thoruf Marius defeated Chris Jordan. Marius got the pin on Jordan with a little help from his manager Sheik Adnan El Kassie.
Cory O'Neill & Joey Envy defeated Aaron Corbin & Brody Hoofer. I think that Hoofer was too distracted by the shampoo bottle mascot that was in the crowd for one of the sponsers. Acording to the poster for this card this was too be the O'Neill Twins last tag team match but Cory's brother Cody was once unable to make it as was the case back in December.
In the battle between to local wrestlers who recently appeared on WWE Lenny Lane defeated Sammy Savard. Lane appeared on ECW back in September loosing to Jack Swagger while Savard lost to the Boogieman on ECW a few weeks ago. At least Savard didn't have to eat worms after his loss on this night. The end came when ref Rob Page disqualified Savard when he thought that Savard used a chair on Lane. I've probably wrote this before but I hate that finish. Why is that finish the only time the ref calls something that he doesn't see?
Mitch Paradise defeated Scotty Too Hotty in the simi main event. There was a really funny spot in this match when ref Jay Soltice tried to kick Paradise's hand off the rope. Paradise pulled his arm away so Soltice's kick missed and he fell on his ass. Paradise got the win which dissappointed the crowd of over 700 who really wanted to see STH do the Worm. Paradise kept attacking STH after the match. STH got the upper hand then made the crowd happy when he did the worm. STH then got some kids from the crowd into the ring for a worm contest.
In the main event Tony DeNucci defeated Chris Black in a hard core match. I've recently watched DeNucci's AWA debut match on ESPN Classic. That match took place around 1990.(Edited to correct the year of DeNucci's debut)
