So here it is! the unbiased, unrated, uncensored review of APWA’s Fight Night! for those of you that were there, i was one half of the colour commentary team, see, even while injured they cant keep me away! just shows how damn good i am, and while at the moment i might be slightly intoxicated i will give my best effort to give the best play by play that i remember, although keep in mind that i had to deal with that Corporate villain Ananzi Kobus talking while watching, so i might have missed a few things. although tonight’s event was dubbed “Fight Night” i think a more appropriate name for it would be “Ignite Night” because the show was on fire, we saw the debut of 5 new wrestlers as well as a crack in a friendship and a championship change hands! so lets start with the review shall we:
The first match was the debut of two of APWA’s rookies, it was The Ultimate Nathan Versus Dutch. the match started off with Ultimate Nathan talking about how he disliked the “Old” way of things and how he is here to to bring forth the “New” generation, a sentiment i personally agree with, only to be interrupted by Dutch, the hard hitting, high-flying Afrikaner, the match had it’s back and forth moments where The Ultimate Nathan got Dutch in a very impressive seated half nelson submission a few times. the match came to an end when Dutch hit a Roll-Flip into a splash move which yours truly had dubbed “The Flying Dutchman” it was not a bad match and gets a 2/5 in my books
The next match saw another 2 debuts but this time from the female wrestlers, it was Inyanga vs Jasmine, Although Jasmine had the weight and height advantage, Inyanga used her speed and savvy to slow down Jasmine and both these Diva’s gave a great performance of pure aggression, the match ended with Jasmine getting the win but this was due to the final debut of the night, Alexis, who had come out to steal the spotlight from the two divas in the ring, in the end Alexis challenged Jasmine to a fight next month to truly see who is the top Diva of the APWA. This match was a brawl and i think got a 2/5 on par with the first match.
Following all the debutantes came Jonathan Van Rensburg Blizzard vs The Dragon Boy in a wild fight. these two went at it like crazy and with Dragon Boy having the entire crowds support ended up getting the victory via DQ, after Blizzard hit him over the head with his beer can, although this match was pretty even Blizzard managed to bust Dragon Boy wide open and possibly broke his nose, Dragon Boy very easily could have lost the match if Blizzard hadn’t let his emotions get the best of him. this match was great to watch and garnered a 3.5/5 in my books. After the match however Ananzi took it upon himself to get involved and make a no DQ match between Blizzard and Dragon Boy at next months APWA event, i know my money is on Blizzard.
After we returned back from the break, something very unprecedented happened, My Favourite Tag Team at the moment and the WWP tag team champions ended up having a one on one match against each other, Scared Ice, also known as the team of Johnny Sabin and Vic Scar ended up fighting for the #1 contenders spot for Ananzi’s WWP All Africa Championship, this match was heartbreaking as it pitted a family against each other, but these two men knew each other so well it was just reversal after reversal, eventually after a bizarre twist the referee was knocked out and my egotistical co-commentator put on a ref’s jersey and took it upon himself to ref the match, although Ananzi seemed to call the match fair for majority of the match the whole thing took a turn when Sabin hit a bad habit on Vic, Ananzi’s Signature finishing move, the match would have been over but Ananzi refused to make the 3 count on Moral, not long after that Vic also hit a bad habit on Sabin, and Ananzi once again refused to make the three count, just like typical Ananzi, he couldn’t have a show without stealing the spotlight. the end came when Vic Scar stole the win to become #1 contender for Ananzi’s WWP championship next month in October. this match was easily a 4/5 and had all the drama and action a fan could want in a match.
My Co-commentator wouldn’t stop there with stealing the spotlight and decided to make the recently wrestled out Scared Ice Tag Team go two on two with the APWA tag team champions, the Dementors of Chaos consisting of Dirty Jackson, Janneman Lubbe and Two-Face, Marcel Jonker , The match was mostly dominated by D.O.C pulling out a plethora of tag team moves and very little co-operation between SIN, if this commentator has to say anything i must say that D.O.C are possibly the most well oiled Tag Team in the APWA at the moment and who would have thought that two psychopaths would work so well together, but really those two need to see a shrink or something. Anyway, the match came to and end with Sabin walking out on his partner in mid-match and leaving D.O.C to pick up the scraps and get the win over Vic Scar. this was great match and would have been even better if Sabin hadn’t turned his back on the newly appointed #1 contender Vic Scar. it gets a decent 3.5/5 in my books.
The Final match of the night was for the APWA world heavyweight championship and was a triple threat between Kyle Ripley, Renegade, and the Champ, Donovan LoudMouth Blignaut, this was a complete Slobber Knocker with atleast 20 pins, 4 Superman punches from Kyle Ripley, 2 Samoan Drops from Loudmouth and Renegade and dumping both opponents back first onto the wooden stage. this match was hard to keep track of as it was all over the place and with Loudmouth the biggest of all three men it looked like he was going to be the victor from the word go, but with Renegades underhanded tricks and Kyle’s grit and determination the match came down to who ever wanted it the most. Which in this instance happened to be Kyle Ripley, after a devastating top rope Superman Punch to Loudmouth, Kyle “KO” Ripley got the win and became the new APWA heavyweight Champion. A well deserved win, but who knows what the future holds, keep your friends close, but your enemies closer Mr. Ripley.
The Main Event gets a solid 4/5 from me because it had myself and my bias co-commentator Ananzi on the edge’s of our seats the entire match.
All and All the entire event gets a 3/5 and i cannot wait until next month when Blizzard and Dragon Boy go at it with a no DQ match and Vic Scar gets his #1 contenders match against Ananzi, but only time will tell if Johnny “The Iceman” Sabin will be in Vic’s corner and what is instore for Kyle Ripley at the next big event, come by next time when yours truly will very possibly be in action again and trying to kick ass and take names all while trying to avoid the Dementors of Chaos. This Has been Christopher James Edwards III signing out, and may All you wrestling fans out there have a pleasant month but just remember, no matter what anyone tells you, no matter how crazy your dreams are and no matter how impossible they might seem to achieve, just remember, you’ll never be as good as me! think about it!
