After the rise against graphic shows up on screen The show opens with the Session Moth Martina dancing in the ring. Martina then hits the microphone and says she just came here to have some fun. Then out comes Anti-Fun Police member Chief Deputy Dunne who's clearly here to not have some fun! The crowd begin to chant "he has no fun on his dick as Damian has no fun on his tights which is over his dick. Damian then announces he is here to arrest Martina. 'Session Moth' seems to want to be crushed by Damian who claims Martina has some concealed weapons up there. Martina pulls out a cucumber from her trousers and a toy gun. Damian by now has had enough of all this fun and attacks Martina and a bell rings for are first contest of the evening.
Intergender Match: Session Moth Martina Vs Anti-Fun Police member Chief Deputy Dunne
This was your typical comedy match which was a lot of fun (sorry Damian but it was). Early on Martina used her gun on Dunne and also Martina inserted her cucumber into Dunne's anus as well. After some more eye raising laughs including Dunne over selling of being shot in the penis and head. Martina refused to pin a dead Dunne and the match was called declaring Martina winner via homicide.
Winner: Session Moth Martina
Afterwards Trent Seven and Joel tended to the dead Dunne while Martina apologised. Joel told her off saying if you shoot someone in the head they genuinely tend to die!
Triple Threat Match: David Starr Vs Dan Moloney Vs Clint Margera
As you well know Triple threats matches can genuinely be a pain in the ass for workers to make interesting but here these did their damn hardest to make this entertaining. Early on as always the crowd gave Dan Moloney lots of shit, chanting for his "shitty little gloves", "shitty little boots", "shitty little beard" and also chanted that he had "shit stains on his pants". David Starr and Clint run with it checking his pants for these shit stains which Dan played up too obviously.
After the silliness was out of the way all three men worked well with one another until the lights went out. Then suddenly the Undetaker's music played and out came Martina with a can of Guinness and the Fundertaker (Damiqn Dunne). Fundertaker was sporting some fancy black top, guy liner and purple pants. Clint and Dan went after Fundertaker but he just chokeslammed both of them. Starr attacked Fundertaker but he came back with old school. Fundertaker cut his throat and drilled Starr with a tombstone and got a two count as Starr just kicked out. Martina came into the ring and gave Fundertaker some Guinness and he then gave Starr a last ride and got the three. I don't know how Fundertaker could win this triple threat that he wasn't involved in but who really cares when that segment was so much fun!
Afterwards Martina kissed Dunne and he came out of his trance and gave Martina an enzugiri to leave her laying.
Singles Match: Kay Lee Ray Vs Candice LaRae
It was time to get down to some serious wrestling. Well that was what I thought anyway. Early on these two worked over each other arms with a pair of arm bars but then Kay Lee Ray decided she had enough of all this serious wrestling and went to the bar. She grabbed a beer and returned to the ring. She took a swig for the working (Wo)Man and then got a reluctant Candice to take a swig. Then Kay Lee wanted to celebrate but Candice rolled her up. This lead to a bunch of false finishes as Kay Lee Ray tried to hold onto her beer without spilling it which she was able to pull off amazingly. Then Kay Lee Ray accidentally hit shay with her beer can and shay went down.
Kay Lee Ray channelled her inner Eddie Guerrero and gave Candice the beer can and went down clutching her face. Meanwhile Candice handed the beer to a fan at ringside and then went down clutching her face. Shay got annoyed with the punter and threatened to kick him out as Kay Lee Ray went and told him off as well. Back in the ring Candice dived out onto Kay Lee Ray to resume the action. Kay Lee Ray came close to victory with a Koji clutch and Candice came close to victory with a DDT.
Then it was back to the false finishes after that both of them passed out. Kay Lee Ray got a nearfall with a Gory Guerrero Special after both ladies had exchanged elbow strikes in the middle of the ring. Candice battled back with a reverse rana and then nailed Kay Lee Ray with a ballsplex for the three count.
So Far this has been my favourite match on the card. Both ladies are two of my favourites on the indies and both worked really well with one another. This match is well worth anyone spending 15 minutes of their life checking out.
Winner: Candice LaRae
Tag Team Match: Black Coffee (Joe Coffey and Omari) Vs The Hunter Brothers (Jim&Lee Hunter)
Jim and Lee got a welcome back chant early on as Jim was sidelined for the last few months with a knee injury. Early on all four men exchanged holds on the Mat to show off there wrestling skills. Then they stepped it up a gear as Joe Coffey came in and showed off his power with a pair of shoulder blocks to the brothers then he applied a pair of Boston Crabs to the brothers. Then Jim and Lee came back and got a two count on Joe with a big double back drop. Joe then gave both brothers a double underhook big swing and then did the Cesaro big swing to both brothers. Jim was so dazed by this he rolled up the referee joel and Joe counted three for him. Jim celebrated but Joe rolled him up for a near fall.
Joe then ate a pair of superkicks from the brothers but eventually made the hot tag to Omari. Omari came into the ring like a house of fire nailing both Jim and Lee with his jumping roundhouse kick. Omari tagged out and Joe came in with a big back breaker to Lee for a two count. Omari came back in who did a perfectly fine looking back elbow smash to Jim for a two count. Jim nailed Omari with a chin breaker and tagged Lee. Omari tagged in Joe who unleashed some upper forearm smashes to Lee's jaw. Jim and Lee then over powered Joe together and nailed Joe with a double superkick. Joe then came back with chops to both the brothers at the same time then he did a big crossbody off the top and got a near fall. Omari came in and nailed Jim with a gut wrench but Lee blind tagged himself in and attacked Omari from behind and then did the RKO driving Omari back first into Jim's knees at the same time.
Jim dived out onto Joe as Lee covered Omari for a near fall. Omari battled back and tagged in his hurt partner and Joe came in and nailed Lee with a spinning forearm smash. Then Omari got lost as he went to assist Joe with a German but veteran Joe just took over and German suplexed Lee for a nearfall. Then Omari suplexed Jim and Joe went to give Jim a rolling elbow smash but Jim ducked and Joe nailed poor old Omari. The hunter brothers recovered and nailed Joe with another double Superkick not once but twice. Then jim and Lee went up top and came crashing down on top of Joe with a quadruple foot stomp to pick up the victory.
This was Omari big chance to step up onto the main show after being in the dark match portion of the previous shows in fight club:pro and you know what yet again he really impressed me here. He did his job well and put in a good shift and didn't need others to carry him to a good performance as he more than held his own in there with more established and polished workers from the BritWres scene. Yeah he got lost once but I ain't going to hold that against him. Overall this match was very solid both teams worked a treat together and I wouldn't mind seeing a rematch between these two down the line sometime.
Winners: The Hunter Brothers (Jim&Lee Hunter)
Afterwards Jim mentioned how he was wearing a stone cold knee brace so that called for a celebration of a beer in the ring.
Irish World of Sport Rules Match: Mikey Whiplash Vs Jimmy Havoc
It was announced by ring announcer Matt Taylor during the ring introductions this was now a Irish world of sport rules Match after Jimmy havoc bribed him with fiver. Which now meant that it was 5 x 3 minute rounds with two falls or a knockout to win the match with a twist as in between rounds wrestlers had to take a shot of Jack Daniels.
Round 1: Early both men grapple for advantage of an arm bar. Whiplash gets a grapevind on Jimmy while havoc comes back with a head scissors. Both jockey for position in a headlock and that is the end of round 1.
There is no shot glasses here as Jimmy and Mikey drink directly from a bottle of JD. Jimmy tried to get Shay to drink some JD but he seems repulsed by the smell of it but drinks it anyway then Matt gets in on it by taking a shot.
Round 2: Jimmy gets Mikey down with an arm bar again both men jockey for position and Mikey takes control of Jimmy's arm. Jimmy counters with a snapmare but Whiplash holds onto the arm. Again a counter by Jimmy into a crucifix pin for a two count. Both men go back and fourth with pinning attempts but either man only gets a two.
Jimmy asks Mikey to drink but Mikey slaps Jimmy hard. Then Matt Taylor announces this match is now no DQ.
Round 3: Jimmy takes a swig and then low blows Mikey and gives him a small package to get the three. 1st pinfall victory goes to Jimmy Havoc.
During the break Jimmy grabs a beer and takes a swig as Mikey screams at the audience. Mikey takes a swig of some JD and then Jimmy does. Again the crowd want Shay to take a shot and he does take a big swig to the pleasure of the crowd.
Round 4: Jimmy gives a charging Mikey a drop toe hold into a chair for a two count. Jimmy then props the chair into the top and second ropes and drives Mikey head first into the chair for a near fall. Jimmy grabs the chair and drives it into Mikey's gut over and over again. Jimmy then sets up two chairs opposite one another giving Mikey enough time to recover and hit Jimmy with a DDT. Mikey removes the chairs to the outside but Jimmy dives out onto him. Jimmy rolls Mikey into the ring along with a chair and goes to nail Mikey with it but Mikey ducks and gives Jimmy a uppercut then Death Valley driver but it's the end of round 4 before Mikey can cover Jimmy.
The crowd chant "shot" but Mikey doesn't seem ready for another shot. Jimmy recovers and swigs a punters beer while Mikey takes a sip of JD. Jimmy takes a swig of JD not once but twice. Jimmy seems pissed and spits out a little of JD into a punters hat. The crowd chant for the punter to put his hat on and does then the crowd chant you sick fuck as Jimmy calls him a fucking idiot. Jimmy grabs a microphone and calls Mikey a cunt.
Round 5: the two trade punches in the middle of the ring while they call one another cunts. Mikey nails Jimmy with a lariat for a near fall. Mikey says Jimmy is a mark cunt who can only beat him with a chair. Jimmy low blows Mikey and nails him with a chair shot to the head to pick up the win. 2nd pinfall victory goes to Jimmy Havoc.
Well that was currently different. it kind of reminded me of that drunken deathmatch involving Dean Ambrose/Jon Moxley many years ago. I enjoyed it a lot as it continued to tell the ongoing story of Jimmy havoc not being able to win a match without the aide of chairs etc.
Winner: Jimmy Havoc
Afterwards Mikey Whiplash threw up at ringside to the disgust of some girl who didn't seem to get out of the way quick enough.
Intergender Match: Nixon Newell Vs Chris Brookes
Nixon dances and sings her way out to the ring. When she gets into the ring Brooke's gets out but Nixon goes up top and dives out onto Brookes with a plancha. The two brawl around ringside were Brookes throws a chair into Nixon's head. Newell then gets back into the ring and dives out onto Brookes twice during the third dive Brookes stops Nixon by throwing a trash can into her head. Back on the outside both Nixon and Brook's beat each other up with the trash can. Nixon tosses Brookes back in but as she goes to get in the ring, Brookes cuts her off with a kick to the gut and puts the trash can over the top of Nixon's head. Brookes then kicks the can
Brookes drops an elbow onto Nixon's back after trying to wet willy her. The crowd chant "stand up if you hate Chris Brookes" so Brooke's sits down then the crowd chant "sit down if you hate Chris Brookes" so he stands up. Brooke's then goes for the wet willy again but Nixon counters it and gives Brookes the wet willy. Tilt a whirl DDT by Nixon sends Brookes to the outside and Nixon goes to dive out onto Brooke's but he moves and she hits the wall head first.
Nixon battles back with a superkick and hits Brookes with a Shinning Wizard. The two brawl through the crowd and then Nixon climbs up onto the top entrance door to the Fixxion and dives off onto Brookes with a crossbody. Nixon tosses Brookes into the ring and nails him with several running uppercuts. She then sends Brooke's into a chair propped up in the corner between the top and middle ropes. Nixon then puts Brookes' head through the back of the chair and nails him with a running knee smash for a near fall. A punter hands Nixon a chair as she goes to give Brookes a Piledriver through the chairs. Brookes counters it and body slams Nixon through the chair instead for a nearfall.
Brookes goes to the back and returns with a staple gun and staples Nixon's shirt to her head. She pulls the shirt away and cracks Brookes with a skull crushing headbutt. Nixon then fires three staples into Brooke's arms and then staples some card to the side of his face. Nixon covers Brookes but he just kicks out. Nixon goes to the outside and brings some thumbtacks into the ring and pours out onto the canvas. Nixon and Chris battle back and fourth on the top rope then Chris bites Nixon on the head and suplexes her off the top onto the thumbtacks below for a nearfall.
Both Nixon and Brookes trade slaps in the middle of the ring and then Nixon powerbombs Brookes onto the thumbtacks for another near fall. Nixon then counters Brookes Alabama Slam into a Canadian Destroyer into the tacks for another near fall. Nixon has a look of pure shock on her face. She then goes for a Shinning Wizard again but Brookes moves and superkicks Newell. Brookes follows it up with a twisting neckbreaker for a two count. Then he drives Nixon into the tacks with a Michinoku driver for another near fall. Nixon flips Brooke's the bird and he gives her a Canadian Destroyer onto the tacks for the one, two and three.
Now that was how you finish a near two year feud. It was the kind of match every wrestler dreams he or she could have as it was a bona fide show stealer. Both Nixon and Chris should be proud of the art they crated inside that ring. Yes I've been critical of people using finishers as set ups for other moves in the past but in a big feud ending match like this you can understand why they did so many big spots and bumps.
This is by far my favourite BritWres match this year so far and I would be surprised if anything else was able to top this epic encounter this year. I would give this match a full 5 stars for the emotion it made me feel and for the amount of silly noises I made during it. Yes I was marking out and for good reason. This match was incredible and the story it told was also incredible.
Winner: Chris Brooke's
Afterwards the crowd gives both Brookes and Nixon a standing ovation which is richly deserved. Brookes talks about there history as rivals from wrestling in front of 7 people to wrestling here today. Brookes put over Newell with tears in his eyes and says she had gone all over the world from Japan, Germany representing Fight Club: PRO. He then thanks her and wishes her the best and adds how proud everyone is of her. The two long time rivals then hug and Brookes leaves handing the ring over to Nixon who is also crying now. The crowd can't thank Nixon enough as she goes off singing and dancing to B*Witched and this reviewer has a tear in his eye.
Main Event: British Strong Style (Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate and Trent Seven) Vs Travis Banks, Wolfgang and Will Ospreay
Once Pete, Trent and Tyler are in the ring they all do crotch chops for some reason I can't think who made them famous. Also then during their ring introductions British Strong Style get on the ring apron and spit some water into the air. Again i can't remember who made that famous. Maybe you could send your answers on a post card to titan towers and tell me?
Pete teases starting out with Travis who gets right up into his face but Pete bails and tags in Trent. Trent and Travis start out trading chops with one another. Both men miss wheel kicks but Trent chops Travis low. Very low infact. Travis tags in Wolfgang while Trent tags in Pete. Wolfgang and Pete trade chops and then Wolfgang goes for a military press but Pete counters it and begins to bite on Wolfgang's fingers. Wolfie comes back with a falcon arrow and Pete bails out and tags in Tyler while Wolfgang tags Ospreay.
Will says "Well look a this! We've got New Japan vs WWE!" Both men work a headlock then Tyler shoulder blocks Will, but Will pops right back up. Ospreay and Bate go back and forth countering moves while running off the ropes then both men end up doing somersaults off the ropes and posing as the crowd comes unglued. Pete comes in and Travis cuts him off and it all breaks down into a massive walking brawl between everyone.
All six men trade chops on the outside then Pete and Trent corner Travis and give him kick in. Pete then choked out Travis with a t-shirt. The Kiwi Buzzsaw battled back with some kicks and chops. Meanwhile Wolfgang and Trent best one another up over the other side of the building. Will and Tyler are also battling off to the side of the building. British Strong Style then grab chairs and throw them at Travis, Wolfgang and Will but they shake it off and keep coming after them.
Back in the ring Pete goes for a Mexican surfboard but Ospreay stops him applying it and gets hold of Pete's chin and chinlocks him. Meanwhile Travis still has his leg tangled up with Pete's but in comes Tyler who applies a crossface to the trapped Travis Banks. Trent looks to get involved but can't find a spot so just poses. Wolfgang comes and breaks the hold by powerbombing Trent onto Travis, Will, Tyler and Pete. Tyler gives Travis an aeroplane spin then Pete flies off the top, driving a knee into Travis who is still up on Tyler's shoulders. Tyler then dumps Travis onto Trent knees. Pete works over Travis then bites his ear but Travis comes back with a forearm smash.
Trent is tagged in and he mounts Travis and beats him down. Tyler is in now and he works over Travis with a Suplex and a dead lift German suplex. Pete is back in as he stretches Travis and pulls his fingers apart. Pete does an Indian Death Lock to Travis but Will breaks it up. Tyler is tagged in and he backs up Travis into British Strong Style's corner. There is a number of quick tags between the three who continue to work over Travis eventually he battles back, downing Pete with a tridal kick. Wolfgang is tagged and he clears house. Wolfgang then does a Swanton Bomb onto Pete, but Tyler breaks it up.
Tyler comes in and he tries to suplex Wolfgang but he's too heavy and counters with one of his own but Trent stops Tyler from taking the bump and they end up giving Wolfie a double suplex. Will is in and he does a slice bread number two to Tyler and standing shooting star for a near fall. Pete goes for Bitter End but Ospreay counters it into a small package for a two count. Xplex sit down powerbomb by Pete onto Ospreay gets him a two count. Travis is in and he nails Pete over and over again with forearm smashes. Pete comes back and applies a Boston Crab to both Wolfgang and Travis banks at the same time.
Now British strong style have Travis all to themselves and they all take turns beating on him but Travis fires back up and beats down the BSS unit by himself with elbow and forearm smashes. He then does a Coast-to-Coast or Van Terminator to Pete. Ospreay and Wolfgang are back now and Ospreay does a 450 to Tyler and Wolfgang follows it up with a moonsault for a near fall. Then all six men nail one another with a version of a kick. Ospreay goes for a Os Cutter however Trent holds onto Osprey and gives him the Seven Stars Rainmaker but Ospreay no sells it. Tyler and Pete then try to double team Ospreay but he ends up giving them a reverse rana. The Fixxion comes unglued with chants of "we love you Fight Club, we do! Oh fight club we love you!"
All six men battle it out with one another and Tyler gives Will a powerbomb onto Pete and Travis. Now all six men are exhausted and trading forearms on their knees. All six get up and BSS bite Travis, Will and Wolfgang's fingers. Trent then drills Wolfgang with a Pedigree while Tyler does the same to Travis but Ospreay counters the one Pete was trying to do to him into a hurricanrana for a near fall. Trent and Tyler miss their short punches to Ospreay and hit one another. Then Ospreay hits the ropes and does a somersault spin kick into Trent and Pete Dunne. Tyler recovers and goes for a dead lift German but Will lands on his feet and somersaults out over the top rope out onto Trent and Pete on the outside.
Ospreay does his pip pip cheerio elbow smash onto Tyler then goes to dive out onto Trent but Trent catches him in a tombstone position. Tyler then dives out of the ring and he assists Trent with the Indy Taker, drilling Will headfirst into the concrete floor. Holy shit this match is insane! Travis dives out onto BSS over and over again. Wolfgang then does a cannonball dive out on top of everyone. Back in the ring Wolfgang covers Pete for a near fall. Trent goes and gives Wolfgang a short piledriver off the top rope. Will then does his spiral tap Onto Trent. Tyler grabs Will and gives him the Tyler driver 97. Banks gives Tyler a super kick then goes for a tridal kick but as he turns in mid air Pete Dunne is there to meet him with a elbow smash and Pete KO's Travis. Pete covers Travis for the one, two and three and it brings an end to the most insane six man since Will Ospreay teamed with Ryan Smile and Shane Strickland to face Marty Scurll, Pete Dunne and Travis Banks in Rev Pro earlier this year.
Winner: British Strong Style (Pete Dunne, Trent Seven and Tyler Bate)
Much like the Rev Pro six and PWG six man last year this was pure insanity. Someone please show Dave this match he will love it! Anyway it wasn't my match of night as that honour went to Brookes vs Newell as that paid off a near two year storyline between the two. But this match was Insanity! A spot fest of the highest order and perfect way to follow Newell vs Brooke's and perfect way to end the show.
Overall this show was another bonafide great show by Fight Club: PRO. How does this promotion keep topping its shows each and every month? It's beyond me.
