MIW Moundsview, MN 3/13/2009

This last Friday night Minnesota Independent Wrestling debuted at a new venue as they took their ring to Roberts bar in Moundsview, MN for "Feel the Pain '09". I liked this new venue but the bar made some what of an odd request. Roberts management asked that music be played during the matches. This seemed to through off some of the wrestlers as the music played was really not to their liking. I've been to other promotions that have done commentating over the wrestling and that was pretty weird. But I've also been to sporting events that play music during game play but they usually played up beat music to go with the action. The music played during the matches on this card was more like dance music. The Matches started at a little after 8:30 and ended at just after midnight.

Like last week in Chanhassen this card saw the return of a few old MIW wrestlers. The difference this week is that the returning wrestlers had not been in the ring for over 6 years. Besides the two returning wrestlers there were also three wrestlers making their MIW debut.
The opening contest was between two MIW rookies. In this match Cpl. Julio Julio defeated "The Law" Mark Barker.
"Playboy" Pete Huge with Allison Wonderland defeated the debuting Ugly. This was my first time seeing Ugly and to tell you the truth, he really didn't look that ugly.
Daryl Hall defeated Blazing Benjamin with a roll up. This was Benjamin's first time in MIW.
Danny Duggan with Allison Wonderland defeated Mickey McCoy with some help from Huge. As Duggan and Huge beat on McCoy after the match Brody Hoofer came out to make the save. Following the MIW formula this set up a tag team match for later in the night.
Cpl Julio Julio defeated Mikey Stanley and Trevor Gibson in a three way dance. Gibson was the third wrestler to make their MIW debut on this night.
K-Train defeated Rick Mathews with a stunner. This match was K-Trains return to the squared circle after more then 6 years. He looked pretty good in the ring for having that much time off and he also had a lot of fans at ring side who still had their K-Train t-shirts.
MIW heavy weight champion Mitch Paradise defeated "The new face of country music" Jeremy Biggs with the Masked Producer to retain the belt.
Dysfunction pinned AJ Shanchez after a super kick. Dysfunction was on the mic earlier in the night talking about how he was just in a king of the death match tournament but on this night he would not be doing any hard core for the stupid fans in Minnesota.
Brody Hoofer & Mickey McCoy defeated "Playboy" Pete Huge & Danny Duggan with Allison Wonderland. McCoy put Huge through a table out side the ring but the match ended in the ring when Hoofer pinned Duggan.
The main event for the night was the Roberts Rumble which was a Royal Rumble rules match. All the wrestlers from the earlier matches were in the rumble as well as two who were only in the rumble. The first of the two being Johnny Gadaski who was formerly known as Johnny Goldengate. The second fresh wrestler in the Rumble was also the second returning wrestler, Dr. Darin Davis, the wrestling proctologist. Davis came to the Roberts mostly to see old friends but he ended up being put into the Roberts Rumble. Check out his blog for for his view on the night.
K-Train won the Roberts Rumble when he clothes lined Pete Huge over the top rope.
