9-22-12 TV Taping REPORT
With only one more show to go before Fright Night 2012, the frightening revelation coming out of the September 22 taping was an alarming lack of momentum at Anarchy Wrestling.
The combination of a thin roster and a small (85), flat crowd made for a mostly lackluster night at the Anarchy Arena.
It didn’t help matters any that the creative team had to re-book the show due to unplanned absences of Se7en, the returning Bryan Casanova and Jeff G. Bailey.
Attendance has been moving in the wrong direction since Hostile Environment in July. They drew almost the identical number for the September 8 taping, but that lousy house could have been viewed as a one off due to stiff competition from a number of events in the area.
There was but one match set for Fright Night — Slim J & Azrael defending the tag titles against Urban Assault Squad in a match of their choosing.
Several other matches have been teased. Foremost among them is Brodie Chase challenging Shaun Tempers for the Anarchy Heavyweight Title. The elder statesman of Anarchy is a sentimental favorite but an unlikely choice to become champion. It’s pretty clear that Chase is a placeholder and sooner or later, the real challenge will come from Azrael.
Some sort of NWA Elite vs. Team Anarchy match seems likely. In March, Jerry Palmer’s shocking heel turn at Hardcore Hell sparked a run of magical shows with better attendance. The bitter former owner wanted his company back. The battle lines were drawn, and virtually anyone that mattered had to pick a side. But the feud isn’t clicking like it was. Team Anarchy has been beaten down so badly that the fans may be starting to lose faith in them, and they’re getting beaten down by a weaker Elite that has lost the twin towers of Lane Vasser (quit) and Bryan Casanova (relocated) along with recent addition Jagged Edge (injury).
And there’s the question of pure starpower that even geat booking is not capable of manufacturing. Since the early days of days of NWA Wildside and R Truth and AJ Styles, Cornelia wrestling has traditionally been a place where fans could count on seeing future national stars cut their teeth. Gunner has moved on to TNA. They still have Mikael Judas, but there’s no one else of that caliber on the roster.
You will note that this the promotion is no longer billing itself as NWA Anarchy. Wrestling in Cornelia has been promoted under the NWA banner since 1999. As of this writing, the company through owner Franklin Dove, is still technically a member of the National Wrestling Alliance. However, all references to the NWA have been quietly dropped from the advertising and the Anarchy titles.
Miss Rachael opened the show. She was the bearer of the bad news that neither hated general manager Jerry Palmer or his partner in crime, Jeff G. Bailey were in attendance. Rachael said Palmer was still recovering from Granny’s malicious attack and would not return until Anarchy’s horrible standard of personal safety was rectified. Rachael said Anarchy should have had her arrested so she could rot in jail forever. This was the first time Rachael has handled a talk segment on her own at Anarchy, and she carried it off well.
Rachael introduced Tempers as the one person that in her estimation cared as much about the fans as Palmer. Tempers said the fans thought they saw number one contender Brodie Chase pin his shoulders to the mat last time, but that wasn’t the truth. Tempers said before Chase got in the ring, he was the victim of an extended double team (by Gunner and Mikael Judas) that went well beyond the five count (true). Then, they stayed in the ring and forced Senior Official Brent Wiley to count the pin (also true), and due to the injustice, the match should be stricken from the record books.
Tempers said he was worried that Chase’s inflated ego was now swollen to enormous proportions. Tempers said wrestling him would be the biggest mistake of Chase’s life, and he may as well make it his retirement match, because he was going to break Chase’s neck.
Tempers called out his “brotege” Bo Newsom, and said that going forward, all TV title matches would have a 10 minute time limit, although he had it on good authority that Bo could go much longer than 10 minutes.
(1) Bo Newsom defeated Joey Rhymer to retain the Anarchy TV Title in 7:35.</B> After some back and forth, Rhymer stunned Newsom with a springboard back elbow (hey, that’s Adrian Hawkins move) and went on offense. Newsom cut Rhymer off with a backbreaker and worked the body part. Crickets were chirping save some half-hearted pleas for a Rhymer comeback. Newsom got distracted by the presence of Billy Buck out observing from ringside. Rhymer caught Newsom off guard and rolled him up for a very near fall. Bo immediately drilled Rhymer with a spinebuster for a clean win.
Afterward, Buck hit the ring and hoisted the TV title over his head while Newsom fretted at ringside.
Anarchy Young Lion’s Champion Adrian Hawkins was set to take on former champion Anthony Henry, but Jacob Ashworth attacked Henry as he was on his way to the ring.
Anarchy’s “Talent Coordinator”, John Johnson, said maybe there was no competition for Hawkins because everyone was afraid to face him in submissions only.
“Reverend” Dan Wilson said it wasn’t the wisest of ideas to make open challenges in Devil’s Rejects territory, because we know how to deal with a poser like Hawkins. Out came Stryknyn.
(2) Stryknyn defeated Anarchy Young Lion’s Champion Adrian Hawkins via DQ in 4:15.</B> Hawkins ducked a flying knee causing Stryk to ram it into the turnbuckle. Hawkins was all over the knee, until Stryk hit a uranage and slapped on the Anaconda Vise. CB Suave and Tommy Penerelli attacked Stryk for the DQ.
Najasism and Vandal made the save and were joined by Henry with his shoulder taped up. Ashworth joined Penerelli and Suave.
Rev said Anarchy means unity and if you’ve got anything swinging down there, let’s make it an 8 man tag.
(3) Stryknyn & Anthony Henry & Vandal & Najasism (with The Rev) defeated Adrian Hawkins & Jacob Ashworth & CB Suave & Tommy Penterelli in 11:45.</B> Lots of good action in this match with Penerelli taking the brunt of the punishment. At one point, Naja hit a springboard stunner on Penerelli and and cleared the heel corner with a rolling thunder double dropkick. Henry got the cloverleaf on Penerelli, but Hawkins interfered. The heels trapped Henry in their corner and worked on his bad shoulder. Stryk took the hot tag and got Hawkins in the Anaconda Vise again, but Hawkins hooked the ropes with his feet. Hawkins applied the sharpshooter on Styrk, but Henry broke that up. A frenetic sequence of dives and big moves concluded with Stryknyun fighting off the sharpshooter and spearing Hawkins for the pin.
Johnson came to ringside blithering about how Stryknyn didn’t make Hawkins tap.
(4) Kameron Kade defeated Bobby Moore via count out in 8:20.</B> Kade had things going his way when Moore swept him off the turnbuckles, dropping him on the back of his head. Moore said the fans didn’t care about Kade. Moore was correct. Kade rallied and shouted “c’mon!” in an attempt to fire up the crowd. If the babyface’s actions don’t get the crowd going, shouting at them rarely does. Moore couldn’t get the job done with legitimate methods, so he started to load up the elbow pad. Seth Delay ran down and absconded with the foreign object. It turned into a track meet with Moore getting blown up as he chased Delay around the ring trying to get it back.
Delay enticed Kade into joining him for a “sexy party” swivel hips dance.
Shadow Jackson was greeted with a you suck chant. Jackson said the fans had once again mistaken a lollipop for the greatest star to ever step through the curtain at Anarchy. His t-shirt read “I never cease to amaze myself”. Jackson said Urban Assault Squad were role models for today’s youth, as opposed to the Anarchy tag champions, Slim J and Azrael, who were slimy individuals. Jackson said it was time for the tag titles to come home to the fan favorites. Jackson said his partner, Nemesis, was off having a good time with Palmer at the strip club, and the Rev had Azrael put up in his cave, so he was challenging Slim J to a match, and the winner could make any match they wanted at Fright Night. Jackson let it be known that if won, it would be a hangman’s match. Jackson’s work as a heel continues to be one of the bright spots.
(5) Slim J defeated Shadow Jackson in 7 minutes, earning the right to the gimmick match of his choosing at Fright Night.</B> They fought outside the ring for several minutes. J was taking it to Jackson. Once inside, a major hotshot turned the tide in Jackson’s favor. The lack of heat was appalling. Slim made a spirited aerial comeback and tried for a northern light suplex, but Jackson cut him with the 1031. Jackson has finished many opponents with that move and there was silence when Slim kicked out. Weird. J connected with a roundhouse kick and hit the northern lights for two. Jackson was quivering. J applied an inverted STF, but Jackson managed to get to the ropes. Jackson shoved referee Dee Byers into the ropes to crotch J on the turnbuckle and brought him crashing to the mat with a stunner. J kicked out again. They battled on the ropes. Slim knocked Jackson off and hit his flying reverse DDT for the win. Good match and at least the crowd reacted to the finish.
(6) Seth Delay defeated Brandon Parker in 7:25.</B> Nothing wrong with match except it was devoid of heat. Parker dominated but it’s not like anybody thought Delay was losing, which left the people waiting for the inevitable. Parker tossed Seth by the do rag he was had around his neck. Serves him right. Why would a wrestler wear something his opponent could choke him with? Silly me. It’s fake so what does it matter? Delay blocked Parker’s backpack stunner and got the pin with a leg trap sunset flip.
Afterward, Parker shoved Delay down in frustration. Delay retaliated by putting his lights out with the brass knucks. Moore sneaked in behind Delay and cleaned his clock with the loaded elbow pad.
(7) Bo Newsom retained the Anarchy TV Title vs. Billy Buck via a 10 minute draw.</B> Bo worked on Buck’s knee for most of the match. When Bo got a single leg crab, the crowd got behind Buck, urging him to make the ropes. Buck’s leg was in bad shape, but he managed to make a comeback. Superkick coming…Bo bailed…and the time limit expired. Buck’s selling of the leg was first rate. You know it’s a bad night at the Arena when a Billy Buck match gets a mediocre response.
Postmatch, Buck superkicked Newsom and took a long look at the title before dropping it on Bo’s sorry carcass.
(8) Mikael Judas & Brodie Chase defeated Shaun Tempers & Jacoby Boykins (with Miss Rachael) in 14:33.</B> The crowd came to life when Judas teased a double choke slam. The Elite fought it off, but Judas mowed them down with a double clothesline. Somewhere along the way, Boykins potatoed Judas and gave him a mild black eye. Chase softened up Boykins’ arm and applied a cross armbreaker. Boykins got a ropes break and tagged out. Tempers declined to lock up with Chase. Boykins caught Chase with a sucker punch, and Tempers gladly wanted in. Chase quickly got the upper hand on the champion, but Boykins made a blind tag and cut him off. The Elite gave Chase an extended beating. Tempers was talking trash. Chase leveled Boykins with a desperation clothesline and tagged Judas, who promptly chokeslammed Tempers. Judas tagged Chase back in. One wonders why. Chase hit a swinging neckbreaker on Boykins. Judas grabbed Boykins and rammed him into the announcer’s booth. Meanwhile, Tempers blindsided Chase and went for the hangman’s neckbreaker, but Chase reversed it into a backslide for the three count.
Boykins ran Judas into the post to take him out, and Newsom hit the ring to help the Elite decimate Chase. Buck got beaten down trying to make the save. Slim hit the ring and he was beaten down as well. Jackson came out. He put J in the tree of woe and wrapped a noose around his neck. Before Jackson could do irreparable damage, Judas returned to the ring brandishing a steel chair, and the Elite took a powder. Judas was the only babyface left standing.
NOTES: Fright Night 2012 takes place on October 27…The final TV taping prior to Fright Night will be on October 13…Three weeks of television will be produced from this taping. The Steven Walters/John Skyler match from the previous taping has not been used and will be added in to fill out three weeks…Se7en missed due to a medical situation involving his girlfriend. Casanova, who now lives in Ohio, was riding in with Se7en and got stranded in Nashville. Anarchy had booked a special surprised singles match between Casanova and Judas…Bailey missed due to illness.
