Greg DeMarco, The Voice of Rising Phoenix Wrestling
A capacity crowd turned out for Rising Phoenix Wrestling on September 15 at the 52nd Street Armory in Phoenix.Â A new venue, new lights, and more new talent all combined to bring Arizona wrestling fans a night they won’t soon forget.
The main event tag team grudge match between TNT (Brandon Nitro & Johnny Nitro) and NWA Arizona Heavyweight champion “XXX” Lawrence Tyler & “Miracle” Mike James became even more heated when two additional stipulations were added to the match.Â First, it was announced that it would be one of two first round matches in the NWA Arizona Tag Team Championship Tournament taking place that night.Â Second, “XXX” Lawrence Tyler accepted Brandon Nitro’s challenge that if Nitro could pin the champ, he would receive another shot at Tyler’s title.Â Tyler spent most of the match outside of the ring, only interjecting himself when he was in the least danger of being pinned by Nitro.Â However, it was Johnny Dynamite who scored the pinfall over LT in the end, inadvertinently eliminating Nitro’s shot at the gold.Â The match also lead to three developments, each having a tremendous impact in their own way.Â RPW Commissioner acknowledged that while Lawrence Tyler did not have to defend his title against Brandon Nitro, his next challenge would come from the man who did pin him, Johnny Dynamite.Â As a result of their win, Nitro & Dynamite have advanced to the second round of the NWA Arizona Tag Team Title Tournament.Â Finally, frustrated by his team’s loss, “XXX” attacked Mike James after the match, ending the partnership and friendship shared by James and the man who trained him.
In the other first round match of the NWA Tag Team Title Tournament held this evening, Dean Radford and Black Metal defeated the team of “Tough” Tony Durango and Bonzai to advance to the second round.
In a small measure of revenge stemming from their first match (which resulted in a 20 minute time limit draw), Mikey Nicholls cost The Hawaiian Lion the chance to pick up a victory in a Triple Threat Match that also included TJ Perkins.Â Nicholls made Perkins tap out to Lion’s own ankle lock after tying up Lion’s leg around the ringpost, eliminating the Arizona favorite from the match.
