On Tuesday August 21st American Combat Wrestling hosted an evening of wrestling and music at Bourbon Street Night Club, 4331 US 19N in New Port Richey.
The evening was opened by the New Movement who are in possession of the ACW Heavyweight (David Mercury) and the ACW Tag Team (â€œRaging Bullâ€ Eddie Taurus & â€œthe Rising Starâ€ Austin Amadeus) championships that George Martel couldnâ€™t help but gloat about in front of the fans that clearly hate the Movement. Each champion took some time to rub their victory in the faces of their non-supporters. Mercury claimed they were going to purify the locker room and create order for all to follow. He was so confident in his abilities he laid an open challenge which was answered by the Wewahitchka resident of ACW, Moonshine McCoy.
(1) New ACW Heavyweight champion â€œthe G.O.A.Tâ€ David Mercury of the New Movement (w/George Martel) defeated Moonshine McCoy.
To everyoneâ€™s surprise McCoy used some chain wrestling to work over Mercuryâ€˜s left arm for several minutes. The Movement could only watch on in shock as McCoy went move for move with Mercury who was backdropped to the floor. McCoy followed out with a forward roll into the champion. But when the action came back to the ring McCoy pushed Mercury in first and he got pounced in with right hand punches to the jaw. That opening was all the Movement needed to get involved as Mercury kept the referee busy. McCoy got out of a chinlock with a jawbreaker but when he went to the ropes Mercury sent him right back to the mat into another chinlock. McCoy reversed a corner whip and hit a clothesline followed by a backdrop and ten punches in a corner. But Mercury was able to double leg McCoy to the mat and get the pin, with what looked like both of his feet on the ropes for leverage.
(2) â€œVastly Underratedâ€ Logan Fernandez won the ACW Cruiserweight championship from Jaison Moore.
Early on Fernandez kept walking into Mooreâ€™s fast paced offense but stopped it when he held the ropes to avoid a dropkick. Fernandez missed a cross bodyblock and went to the floor to reformulate a strategy but Moore pulled him back into the ring. Fernandez got control again with what looked like a sneaky move but the referee allowed the match to continue. Moore fought out of a chinlock but ran right into a Fernandez forearm. Fernandez kept attacking Mooreâ€™s upper body with forearms and chest chops and a knee drop for two. Fernandez went up but missed an elbow drop and it allowed Moore to get a second wind with several clotheslines and a Samoan drop. Fernandez missed a corner splash and it allowed Moore to hit an STO into the turnbuckles but Fernandez kicked out of a sitout power bomb. Moore went to end the match but got hit with a superkick for two. George Martel came out of the locker room and argued with referee Billy Dalton. As this went on, Eddie Taurus and Austin Amadeus attacked Moore. This allowed Fernandez to get the win and the championship. After the match Martel told everyone Fernandez was the newest member of the New Movement.
(3) â€œThe 8th Deadly Sinâ€ Sideshow defeated Nick â€œIâ€™m Not Gayâ€ Fame.
Fame was a bit over matched in power and took some time to hide behind the referee. Fame backed Sideshow to a corner but Sideshow made the referee fall for the shoe is untied gag so he had a clear shot at Fame and a chest chop. After some more chops Sideshow hit the G-14 (Go F**k Yourself spear) which sent Fame to the floor. Sideshow went out after him and when they got back on the apron Fame hit a knee to the gut and a spinning neckbreaker. Fame followed with a Rude Awakening for two. But Sideshow fought back with a spring board splash for two only to be hit by a Fame leg lariat and another neckbreaker. Sideshow fought to his feet but ran into an elbow. Sideshow fought to his feet from a reverse chinlock but Fame was quicker and decked Sideshow in the face again. Fame sensed something was wrong and countered out of the Backiotimy into a pin for two, but he didnâ€™t counter out of a Catatonic Backbreaker or a running powerslam. Sideshow got to his feet and went crazy on Fame with a series of moves which led to the Backiotimy for two as Fame got his leg on the ropes. Sideshow called for Double Penetration but Fame countered into a sunset flip for two and hit an ear ringing enziguri. Fame put Sideshow on the top but Sideshow fought back even as Fame hit a superplex. Fame went to end the match but Sideshow countered out of what looked like Sliced Bread #2 into Double Penetration to gain the win.
(4) New ACW Kombat champion Ray Beez defeated â€œSouth Florida Phenomâ€ Scott Commodity.
This clearly was not Commodityâ€™s style of match and he told the fans before the bout he wasnâ€™t even scheduled to be in NPR. He claimed the ACW needed him to hold a quality match not hardcore. Early on the match was anything but hardcore as Commodity tried to wrestle. But Beez got in several hard hitting shots to Commodityâ€™s upper body including a clothesline that took both men to the floor. Beez grabbed a jug of water and smashed into Commodityâ€™s head. The action went to the entry way where Commodity backdropped Beez onto the stage. Commodity also used a trash can as he dragged Beez back to the ringside area. Commodity hit an in ring knee drop for two but Beez fought up and wedged a chair into the corner, but he ended up going head first into it thanks to Commodity and a corner whip. Commodity grabbed the chair and dropkicked it into Beezâ€™s face but Beez fought back again with punches. But Commodity got punches of his own and suplexed Beez onto the open folding chair for two. Frustration began to show on Commodityâ€™s face as Beez kept kicking out of pin attempts. Commodity missed a corner splash and got hit with a German suplex and went up top. But his Dumpster Dive was met with a Commodity dropkick for two. Commodity hit several forearm shots to the back but got hit with a Saito suplex for two. Beez got another energy rush hitting knee lifts to Commodityâ€™s ribs and a series of moves which led to a running clothesline. Beez knocked Commodity to the mat so he could go under the ring for a trash can. Beez hit Commodity with a top rope boot to the back of the head and grabbed the trash can, but the can met the refereeâ€™s head instead of Commodityâ€™s. With the referee down there was no one to count after Beez hit a discus clothesline. Commodity got to hit feet and hit several punches but when he went to the top Beez hit the ropes, causing Commodity to fall head first into the trash can. Beez hit a move that incapacitated Commodity long enough that the referee could be revived and count the pin.
Before the main event George Martel and friends made their way to the ring to discuss some New Movement business with Delta Iota Kappa who also came to the ring. While Martel praised the former champions on their long title reign but it also seemed like he was scared of them as he offered them a place in the New Movement. Things were discussed among the DIK members and Strong took the mic from Martel and told him when he taps the mic everyone shuts the f**k up and DIK attacked Martel.
(5) Former champions Delta Iota Kappa (â€œCandizzle Dreamâ€ Joshua Masters & Sedrick Strong w/Fetish) defetaed NEW ACW Tag Team champions â€œRaging Bullâ€ Eddie Taurus and â€œthe Rising Starâ€ Austin Amadeus of the New Movement (w/George Martel) via countout.
The bell rang and the fighting began in and out of the ring as Masters fought with Amadeus while Strong and Taurus fought to the entry way. The action came back to the ring where Masters was isolated from Strong by the Movement. To the shock of many the fans sided with DIK during the match. Masters took a beating and then some from all the Movement members as Strong and Fetish could only watch on. Masters avoided a Taurus corner move but couldnâ€™t tag out as Taurus grabbed his ankle as Amadeus tagged in. But it went bad when Taurus came back in and got hit with an Acecrusher which allowed Strong to come in hot and energized. Strong hit Amadeus with a spear but Taurus made the save and hit Strong with a sitout slam. But Masters recovered and hit Taurus with a Riki Lariat. Master and Strong grabbed up Amadeus for a double team move but they got too close to the ropes and it allowed Taurus to grab a hold of Amadeusâ€™ ankle. Martel grabbed both men and the tile belts as they headed to the locker room, letting referee Billy Dalton count them out. After the match Strong told the New Movement they just begun a sh*tstorm of trouble.
