RESULTS FROM THE UNION’S TORONTO DEBUT: BORN AGAIN
The UNION of INDEPENDENT PROFESSIONAL WRESTLERS presented the second of its new monthly events in Toronto, Ontario, Canada this past Saturday night with an event entitled STATE OF SHOCK. Here are the results…
RIP IMPACT pinned HENTAI
THE OLSEN TWINS pinned THE WILD STALLIONS
BRODIE LEE pinned ETHAN PAGE
BRODIE LEE pinned REGGIE MARLEY
THE ALL-KNIGHTERS pinned THE FLATLINERS
THE MASKED HIDEOUS BLOB pinned EDDIE OSBOURNE
JOHN McCHESNEY pinned SEBASTIAN DARK
STERLING JAMES KEENAN pinned RICKY REYES
In major news from “STATE OF SHOCK”, the mystery of the new faction in the Union was revealed at the very beginning of the show as JESSY JONES announced the formation of his new management company: The JONES OMNISPORT CORPORATION. Later, Jones introduced the J.O.C.’s first client, “Big Rig” BRODIE LEE. The 6’7″ Lee made quick work of youngster ETHAN PAGE before Jones demanded more competition for his new man. Lee then took out veteran worker REGGIE MARLEY to complete the double-header.
After the show, Jessy Jones promised that he would not only be adding more clients to the J.O.C. roster in the Union but that Jones Omnisport would be looking to add clients in other sports.
“Fabulous” JOHN McCHESNEY earned his place in November’s title tournament the hard way by hitting a vicious Death Valley Driver on SEBASTIAN DARK off the ring apron and through a table to gain the pinfall in a no-disqualification grudge match. So the last-ever champion of the original Union moves on for a chance to become the next Union champion. In the meantime, the first-ever champion must, once again, climb the ladder of contenders from the bottom rung if he hopes to regain the championship gold.
EDDIE OSBOURNE, who went on a rampage to complain about poor refereeing costing him a second Union match, was granted a spot in the tournament, if only to shut him up. “They call this promotion ‘The Union’? Well, I filed a Union grievance”, Osbourne said afterwards. But how will Osbourne fare in the ring amongst a field of wrestlers who had to fight their way into the tournament and a staff of referees he’s been publicly calling “incompetent”?
Former Ring of Honor Tag Team champion RICKY REYES fell just short in his Union debut again STERLING JAMES KEENAN but has vowed to return to the Union to avenge this loss and hopefully challenge for the about to be crowned World Heavyweight title.
