Midwest Wrestling Entertainment held their annual fund raiser event for a church youth group this past Saturday night. This year the event was held at the Elim Lutheran church in Robbinsdale, MN.
In the opening match Cpl. Julio Julio defeated Rob Ivy.
Arya Daivari & Renny D came out to cut a promo on the Junk Squad, Chris Jordan & Pete Huge. This promo set up the main event for the night as The Junk Squad were set to defend their tag team titles against The Young Guys. I’m not sure if that was the name that Daivari & D gave themselves but it sounds good.
Chris Dorrian pinned Benjamin Sailer in the the second match of the night.
Horace the Psychopath defeated Shimdog. This was Shimdogs last match as his doctor told him that he should never wrestle again because his spine is in horrible shape. Thankfully that means that this is the last time that Shimdogs tights will be seen in a wrestling ring. Here is a photo of Shimdog from June 2003. This was one of the first times that I photographed a Shimdog match. It took place at the old MPW arena. At the time Shimdog was the MPW cruiser weight champion. He defeated Kaos (Cody O’Neill) to retain the title.
The Black Stallion pinned El Bano.
The Junk Squad defeated The Young Guys when Chris Jordan pinned Renny D after some kind of swinging neck breaker type thing.
