ANARCHY YOUNG LIONS CHAMPION: STRYKNYN
NOVEMBER 10 REPORT by LARRY GOODMAN
Anarchy Wrestling returned to action in Cornelia, GA for the first time since an eventful Fright Night 2012 — four title change hands, three babyface champions were crowned, and most importantly, babyface superman Mikael Judas survived a gauntlet of Elite villains, thus earning the right to get hated GM and former Anarchy owner, Jerry Palmer inside a steel cage at the next show.
Clearly, if Judas went on to do horrible, unspeakable things to Palmer in the cage, the Anarchy/Elite war would be history. Stories this juicy only come around once. The momentum appeared to be dissipating prior to Fright Night. Things change. This angle has legs to go the distance.
The question wasn’t IF Judas would get screwed but how. What took place last night was the screw job royale, the screw job to end all screw jobs, one of the hottest segments in the storied 14 year history of this building.
The people got crazy (attendance was 110). I thought about the time New South (“Hot Chocolate” Kory Williams & Ashley Hudson) came down from Nashville. Williams was accused of spitting on a white girl and the police were called. Things change in a way. There are only two white guys in among the Elite (Shaun Tempers and Bo Newsom). It’s like an NBA team. There’s nothing overtly racist about the angle. However, it evokes certain tendencies in certain people.
Kudos to Mikael Judas and Anarchy’s creative (primarily a Bill Behrens/Todd Sexton production). The entire roster had a hand in it, though. This is far from the strongest assembly of talent to grace Cornelia. Anarchy is in bad need of a new babyface star. Like what promotion isn’t?
You had to be there to appreciate it. Anarchy’s Stone Age technical capabilities are such that the video version can’t do justice to the live experience.
(1) Aaron Epic defeated “The Last Rock Star” Eddie Graves in 4:30. Although he’s not doing a blatantly gay gimmick, Graves was slightly reminiscent of OVW’s Paredyse. They got a better reaction than most unknowns do in Cornelia. Graves was doing wacky comedy and playing to the crowd. Eddie chants. Epic threw big, loud chops. Graves used a shake, rattle and roll swinging neck for two, then missed a big boot and Epic KOed him with a right hand. A nice way to open the show.
(2) Anarchy Wrestling Tag Champions The Urban Assault Squad (Shadow Jackson & Nemesis) defeated Worst Case Scenario (Eli Evans & Ethan Case) in a non-title match at 9:25. WCS got the early advantage. Case paused to celebrate and paid dearly for it. Nemesis beat the holy hell out of him. Evans was cleaning up on him, so Nemesis distracted referee Ken Wallace, allowing Jackson to give Evans a nut shot and a stunner. Nemesis swooped in with a senton for the 1-2-3.
The fans viewed their first WrestleVision vignette in many moons. Attorney Jeff G. Bailey and administrative assistant Miss Rachael approached Palmer. Bailey told Jerry he was looking swole, and said it was a big night for the Elite because Palmer was fighting for all of them. Bailey wanted to know if there was anything they could do. Palmer reassured Bailey that he would end it once and for all. As they walked away, Rachael was unconvinced. No worries. As usual, Bailey said he had a plan. Good stuff. Rachael’s face is made for close up shots.
All of the new Anarchy champions came to the ring — Heavyweight Champion Brodie Chase, TV Champion Billy Buck and Young Lion’s Champion Stryknyn. Chase’s victory speech was disrupted by the arrival of Bailey, Rachael and former champions Shaun Tempers and Bo Newsom. Bailey said Chase mouth raped Rachael at Fright Night, causing her to be pumped full of antibiotics for the last two weeks. Furthermore, incompetent refereeing cost Tempers the title, because he was clearly in the ropes when Chase pinned him. Bailey claimed Newsom was still the TV champ, because the 10 minute time limit expired and owner Franklin Dove overstepped his bounds by adding five more minutes. Bailey called out referee Dee Byers and ordered him to take the belt from Buck and bring it to Bo. Dove came out and said not so fast. His attorneys in Charlotte (surely Bob Trobich isn’t one of them) had come to a different decision — the TV title would be vacated and decided by a best of five series starting right now. Works for me. It strikes me that keeping this feud going was the right way to go, plus it’s been a while since there’s been a series to decide a title in Cornelia.
(3) Bo Newsom (with Shaun Tempers) defeated Billy Buck in 5:20 to go up 1-0 in the best of five series for the Anarchy TV Title. Bo appeared to have all of Buck’s signature moves scouted. Bo escaped from the Samoan drop and nailed Buck with a enzuigiri to the back of the skull. Buck responded the rally chants with a leg lariat, but Bo hung him out to dry. Buck finally struck pay dirt with the Samoan drop and set up for his superkick finisher, but Tempers grabbed his leg, and Bo rolled him up. They’re off to a good start. The match planted the idea that Buck will need new weapons in his arsenal to win.
Boykins, Tempers and Newsom commenced a beatdown on Buck. Chase and Stryk ran out to make the save. Chase said that was a crock and challenged the Elite to a 3 on 3 match. Leading to…
(4) Brodie Chase & Billy Buck & Stryknyn defeated Shaun Tempers & Jacoby Boykins & Bo Newsom (with Miss Rachael) in 13:55. The babyface champs had their way with the heels, with Chase doing most of the heavy lifting. Stryknyn always wears more than one belt, so when the ref takes one away, he can choke his opponent with another one. Stryk took the heat. He managed to lock Tempers in the Tourniquet but the hold was quickly broken up by the Elite. Chase took the hot tag and hit a dropkick to the belly of Boykins. It broke down with the other four battling on the outside. Chase hit the double underhook implant DDT on Boykins for the pin. Passable as best for a TV main event – a lot of clunky action, and the match didn’t have the heat you would hope for with all the champions going at it against the Elite.
Bailey led Se7en to the ring. Se7en leveled Chase with a bicycle kick. It never made contact. but the point was that the faces were getting their asses kicked. Judas hit the ring, laid Se7en out with a big boot, and goozled Bailey. Se7en tried to intervene. Judas was about to chokeslam him, but Se7en managed to kick Judas in the knee. Judas momentarily crumbled. Judas tried for the chokeslam again but the knee gave way. The Elite stood back and admired their work before departing. Judas was down clutching at his knee. All of the champs were laid out. Judas insisted on leaving under his own power, but his knee kept giving out, and in the end, he had no choice except to let Chase to help him limp up the ramp. I can’t say enough about how great Judas was in selling the injury. It was as believable and dramatic as any performance he’s ever given — the dominant and seemingly invincible leader for the forces of good was vulnerable after all.
End of hour number one of television.
(5) Andrew Pendleton III & Brandon Parker defeated Najasism & Joey Rhymer in 8:40. Little Joey took a brutal shellacking. At one point, Rhymer made it to the corner, but AP3 had knocked Naja off the apron. When Naja finally got the tag, he launched an impressive and highly energized aerial attack that got the crowd behind him. Naja set Rhymer up to apply the finishing touch, but Parker evaded his flying bodypress and pinned him with an elevated DDT. This was a strong win for AP3 and Parker, who are solidly wedged in midcard purgatory.
(6) Anthony Henry defeated Bobby Moore in 12:00. Moore was a bumping machine in the opening minutes. When Henry tried to go up top, Moore stunned him with a right hand and followed with a sideslam on the top turnbuckle. Moore worked on Henry’s back. This was the only sustained working of a body part all night long. Moore fought off Henry’s vaunted submission hold (the Texas Cloverleaf) and used a uranage backbreaker for a near fall. Henry again made the mistake going to the top. Moore hit a superplex but it wasn’t enough. Henry came back with a short flatliner for a near fall. Moore countered a second cloverleaf attempt. Moore hit the running kick that has won him many matches, but Henry kicked out. In utter frustration, Moore loaded up his elbow pad. Henry ducked and maneuvered Moore into a pinning combination for the three count. This was the best match on a night when the wrestling wasn’t that strong. It had psychology and just enough false finishes.
Postmatch, Moore used the loaded elbow to lay out Henry. Henry could be a player as a babyface. He’s got plenty of technique, but can he connect with fans on a deeper level?
Adrian Hawkins, Tommy Penerelli & CB Suave came to the ring. Fans chanted “you tap” at Hawkins, referencing his loss to Stryknyn at Fright Night. Hawkins accused special ref Todd Sexton of screwing him out of the Young Lion’s Championship, just like Bret Hart got screwed in Canada. Hawkins promised there would be nothing but heartbreak in store for Sexton if he got in the ring with him.
(7) Tommy Penerelli & CB Suave (with Adrian Hawkins) defeated Kameron Kade & Kaiden Knight at 11:20. Evidently Knight fancies himself as a MMA fighter. He’s surely not in MMA shape. They went way too freaking long. Five minutes with minimal jobber offense would have been overall more constructive. Knight had Penerelli pinned with a powerslam, but the ref got preoccupied by Hawkins. Penterelli & Suave smoked Knight with a Total Elimination maneuver, and Penerelli scored the pin.
Behrens said Sexton had an idea — a match with Hawkins in two weeks and if “Pizzarelli and Rico” stayed out of it, Todd would make him tap. The crowd response was favorable.
(8) Jerry Palmer (with Jeff G. Bailey and a cast of thousands) defeated Mikael Judas in a steel cage match at 5:45. Bailey was looking relaxed and confident in the extreme. Judas’ music played but no Judas. Palmer told the ref to ring the bell. The music played again, and Judas started to limp down the ramp. Tempers, Boykins and Se7en attacked Judas from behind. Judas regained his superman powers and fought them all off. As Judas entered the cage, an unknown black monster (the debuting Geter) appeared out of nowhere, clubbed Judas in the back, and flattened him with a massive belly to belly suplex. Palmer took a seat in the corner and watched the pandemonium unfold. The crowd was going crazy. Foul language was flowing freely. A couple of fools looked like they wanted to jump the rail. Babyfaces kept running down the ramp and being destroyed by the Elite guard. Their bodies were deposited in front the announcer’s booth. Nemesis kept yelling “they still moving” and beating the crap out of them. Palmer held Judas’ legs while Geter gave Judas three leaping splashes. Palmer wrapped a chair around Judas’ knee and walloped it with his axhandle. It splintered on the second shot. Judas passed out in a single leg crab. Byers called for the bell, but that wasn’t enough for Palmer. He covered Judas with his ax handle and forced Byers to make a three count.
If these weren’t true believers, they sure acted like it. Behrens was out there and he was getting an earful. Ring announcer Bret Wolverton said the show was over so it was time to exit the building, but the fans were too worked up and they wouldn’t budge without some reassurance that their heroes weren’t dead yet.
NOTES: Dove recognized all the veterans in the house for their sacrifices with a special shout out to timekeeper (and father of the new TV champion) Poppa Buck…Brad Armstrong was honored with a 10 bell salute. Behrens paid tribute to Armstrong. He said Armstrong had the most perfect dropkick the wrestling business had ever seen, and was the best wrestler from family of wrestlers that could all go. Behrens expressed his regret that Brad never wrestled in Cornelia…Knight was a last minute sub for JC Walker, who was too ill to wrestle…Anarchy returns to action on November 24…Chuck Porterfield joined Wolverton on television commentary subbing for Tim E. D…Jagged Edge is serving as the bodyguard for Elite management while he recovers from a torn bicep…Azrael and Slim J had the night off selling the injuries from the barbaric barbed wire match with Urban Assault Squad at Fright Night.

Welcome to Rampage Pro Wrestling from Johnny G’s in Warner Robins, GA, where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the wrestlers are above average.
The Bears don’t play until Monday night, so here I am.
Just 75 fans attendance today, which says a lot more about the state of pro wrestling popularity in general than it does about the RPW product in particular.
RPW has the most talented and varied roster of any other promotion in Georgia. Since taking over for Jimmy Rave, the twisted mind of Murder One has livened up the booking. Ben Masters has added some fine old school touches to the way the product is being promoted. Sadly, pro wrestling isn’t the top priority for enough folks at 3pm on Sunday afternoon for those factors to improve attendance.
It was an enjoyable show. I wouldn’t say one of RPW’s best. The October 6 go home taping for Doctoberfest set a high bar. Both main events (a wild street fight involving Hot Like Lava and Usual Suspects and the first time meeting between RPW TV Champion Kyle Matthew and Kory Chavis) delivered the good. The Florida contingent (Chavis, Mike Cruz, Francisco Ciatso and Simon Sez) spiced things up.
Doctor Johnny Gayton, the owner of RPW, returned for the first time since getting his ass kicked at Doctoberfest, when his partner, AJ Steele, turned on him in the cage and reunited with Murder One, forming a faction now known as the Blacklist. Gayton promised that with the backing of The Rampage Nation he would wage war with Blacklist.
(1) BFFs (“Adorable” Anthony Andrews & “Marvelous” Michael Stevens) defeated “Officer” Chris Jacobs & “Encore” Zac Edwards in 6:43. Andrews said his partner’s pythons were more like garden snakes. The highlight of the shine was a slingshot legdrop by Jacobs. Edwards took the heat. He used a satellite Stroke to set up the hot tag. Jacobs saw Andrews coming with the BFFs trusty canister of protein powder. Adler cut him off with a baseball slide. and went on a wild good chase. Back inside the ring, Stevens capitalized on RPW’s lucha style tag rules and did something heinous to Edwards. An average opener.
The aptly named Brad Storm, his hype dial stuck all the way to the right, announced Winter Wars on December 16 – bring a toy and get in for five bucks.
(2) Brad Armstrong Light Heavyweight Tournament Qualifier: Mike Cruz defeated “The Real Deal” Mike Kross in 8:07. Like Jacobs, Kross was introduced with Warner Robins as his hometown. Not sure what he’s been up to, but Kross’ name recently started popping up on Georgia shows after several years away from the scene. The hardcore fans had not forgotten him. Cruz was in from Florida. He’s got a slim, muscular build and athletic talent to burn. Cruz was the smoother of the two. His crisp combos of offense were impressive. He slapped Kross in the face but otherwise wrestled a fairly clean style. Cruz blistered Kross with two stiff chops. Kross fired back with three. Cruz took a terrific sky high bump on a backdrop. Cruz got a single leg crab and Kross made the ropes. Cruz missed huge with a swanton bomb, and Kross answered with a slingblade lariat for a near fall. Kross hit a ropes-mounted double stomp, and Cruz kicked out in the knick of time. The finish saw Kross slip off the ropes legit. Kross reloaded and Cruz reversed into the single leg crab for the tap out win. More Cruz is a good thing for RPW.
Storn announced that TV Champion Kyle Matthews, Steven Stiles and Officer Jacobs would be doing autographs after the show. The crowd response was worse that who cares. Fans were cracking jokes about it.
(3) Rob Adonis (with Miss Allie) defeated Sylar Cross in 8:11. Cross is suddenly from Warner Robins as well. This match made a clean sweep — 3 consecutive losses for the hometown wrestlers. Allie is showing more spunk at ringside. Cross (announced at 404 pounds) won the Bull of the Woods contest, but his leaping splash missed the mark. Adonis wore the even bigger man down, focusing his attack on the low back. Cross sold the back bigtime here. Adonis halfway hit a spinebuster for a near fall. That set up The Return of the Claw Hold. Cross blocked it and hit a massive crossbody, but Adonis kicked out at one. Adonis connected with an enzuigiri for a very close near fall. Cross could no longer defend himself, and Adonis sapped the life out of him with the Claw for the 1-2-3. If the objective was to strengthen Adonis as a heel, Cross did his job well.
(4) Usual Suspects (Murder One & AJ Steele) defeated Hot Like Lava (Cru Jones & Shaun Banks) in a No Holds Barred Rampage Street Fight at 11:40. This match had literally wall to wall action. Murder and Banks beat each other up pretty good, but that was tame compared the psychotic tour of arena by Jones and Steele that included a few things never before seen at RPW. They did nasty things to each other with the garage door. One of the gimmick table areas was nothing but a pile of rubble when it was over. Cru took wicked bumps on a table that was type that doesn’t break. I’m sure he’s feeling it today. The battle spilled into the concession stand, forcing the RPW personnel to evacuate the area. A security guy tried to intervene, and got tossed through a row of chairs for his troubles. Steele finally distanced himself from Jones long enough to hit the Steel City Bomb (black hole slam) on Banks. Jones made the save by smashing a water bottle on Steele’s head. Kory Chavis tried to interfere. Lava cut Chavis off but that gave Steele time to hit a second Steel City Bomb to end it.
Postmatch, Chavis joined Usual Suspects for a beatdown on Lava. Micah Taylor tried to make the save. Vordell Walker joined in with the other members of Blacklist. Matthews, Jacobs and the Doc hit the ring to tip the odds in favor of the babyfaces. Blacklist retreated. Storm tried to get the fans to chant “RPW”. It petered out pretty fast.
Brad Storm did an in-ring opening for the second hour of TV, then did a second take at ringside.
(5) Shane Marx & Jake Slater defeated Drew Adler & Steve Stiles in 7:15. Adler and Stiles are video game buddies. Adler is one of the most improved wrestlers in the state. Stiles was the babyface in peril. Marx and Slater had never teamed before. Stiles was the babyface in peril. A cool spot saw Marx and Adler turn Stiles’ double clothesline attempt into a double backbreaker. Adler got the hot tag and took Slater out with a bicycle kick. Marx tried for the Natural Selection, but Adler reversed it with a sunset flip. Marx looked like a broken man after the loss.
At ringside, Storm introduced Josh Wheeler one of the best play-by-play announcers ever. Wheeler said he was actually a color commentator. Micah Taylor came out to be interviewed by Wheeler. Micah said he knew tonight’s opponent (Francisco Ciatso) from Deep South. Doc Gayton showed up. Doc said he had shared good times and bad times with Micah, but always respected his ability and integrity. Doc offered Micah the position as the general of Rampage Nation. Micah said that he was formerly a Marine and accepted. Doc said with Micah as his general, Blackist was in trouble.
(6) Vordell Walker defeated “Emerald Emperor” Simon Sez via submission in 6:50. The dynamic of this match was all wrong. The cheers were for Walker, who is being pushed as a member of Blacklist. There’s nothing the least bit babyface about Sez. He’s slimy and he’s not half the wrestler Walker is. Even after spitting on the guy, the crowd was still behind Walker. Sez used his wits to throw Walker off his game. In the end, Walker missed a moonsault to give Sez a last gasp of hope before making him tap to a keylock.
(7) Micah Taylor defeated Francisco Ciatso in 10:09. Ciatso stole the show in this match. The fans chanted “stupid” at him and it made him crazy. A clubbing blow sent Micah flying through the ropes with the greatest of ease. Micah set Ciatso up so the old lady Ciatso had been torturing could slap him in the face, but she wouldn’t do it. Ciatso told an alleged cougar in the front row that her face looked like a melted candle. Ciatso proclaimed that he was wrestling genius, but looked like a dimwit when he missed a splash off the middle rope. Micah gave Ciatso the 10 corner clotheslines and finished him with a german suplex. Ciatso’s facial expressions and interaction with the crowd made this better live than it could ever be on TV.
(8) RPW TV Champion Kyle Matthews and Kory Chavis wrestled to a 15 minute draw. I was shocked to learn that had never been in the same ring prior to this match, but Chavis moved to Florida before Matthews’ career really got going. Chavis used his major size advantage to punish Matthews. Matthews hit his tope suicida, and tried for a flying bodypress, but Chavis reversed it into a powerbomb. Chavis took a bite of Matthews’ back. When Chavis crashed and burned on a springboard moonsault, it was comeback time. Matthews used a tornado DDT and superkick for near falls. Matthews tried for the Hidaka lock, but Chavis countered with backpack stunner for a close near fall. elbow. Matthews missed a top rope splash, and Chavis hit the Spinesplitta, but Matthews kicked out. Matthews had Chavis in the Hidaka lock when the time limit expired. I liked this match, and chances are the rematch will be even better.
Matthews offered handshake. Murder One came to ringside to see how Chavis was going to handle the moment. Chavis blew Matthews off and rolled out of the ring to join M1. Murder told Matthews that they let him live. Look out RPW. If Blackout reunites, there will be hell to pay.
NWA Atlanta was in Locust Grove, GA on November 10th. Results: Fry Daddy defeated Psycho. King David defeated Sheik Akbar by DQ. Mike Cannon defeated Kody Jack. Beauty & the Beast (Rick Michaels & Bobby Hayes) & Bill the Butcher defeated Jason the Terrible & The Georgia Wrecking Crew (Andy & Axil Anderson). AJ Steele defeated Billy Jack. Cru Jones vs. Rey Del Sol ended in a no contest.
Deep Southern Championship Wrestling was created in March of of 2010 and started running shows once a month in Ellijay, Ga. We started out in a place known as Gilmer Golf and games.

We had to move to gyms and civic centers to support our fan base, drawing close to 600 on some of our big shows.
