The Grand Stand at the Pike County Fair on August 1st, 2012 was
buzzing with well over 200 fans who witnessed history in the making,
the debut of World’s Best Wrestling Inaugural Brawl!
The event kicked off with WBW Field Manager “Loony” Mike Horton
introducing the current Revolutionary Championship Wrestling
Heavyweight Champion bearing Old Glory “The Natural” Chad Cruise!
Chants of USA, USA could be heard as everyone rose to their feet while
a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem delivered by the lovely
and talented Ms. Ashley Toller.
It was announced that the first match would be a special challenge
“Flag Match” and as a stipulation, the RCW Heavyweight Championship
would be on the line as well. The way to win this contest was to
capture your opponent’s flag. Just as Cruise’s opponent was being
announced, the President of WBW, Dude Rock interrupted Loony to inform
the crowd that Cruise’s opponent would be none other than the
anti-American militant, Tyson Rogers and Rock stated he was confident
that the RCW Championship would change hands and return to Tehran,
Iran with Rogers.
A confident and cocky Tyson Rogers came to the ring proudly waving the
Iranian Nation Flag to a chorus of boos that may have been heard all
of the way back to the Middle East! But the boos turned to a loud
ovation as Senior Official Steve Helphenstine called for the bell as
Chad Cruise successfully captured the Iranian flag, threw it on the
ground, and proudly waved Old Glory in the ring. An outraged Tyson
Rogers bitterly complained to President Rock who awarded Rogers a spot
in the WBW Championship Tournament.
The second match pitted the ever popular man from the dark side of the
moon, Eclipso Powers against the flamboyant one, Captivating Corey
Mason. Eclipso stunned Mason with a barrage of aerial assaults but the
Captivating one’s craftiness prevailed as Corey Mason score a win with
The third match saw the area’s debut of two highly touted grapplers by
the names of Lil C and Tom “The Brutal” Bellman. Lil C quickly got off
on the wrong foot with the crowd and displayed a nasty attitude
towards the fans and showed that he could back up that temperament in
the ring. Brutal Bellman was quite a sight donning an orange streaked
beard and orange body hair and quickly won the fans over. The match
was back and forth until Referee Adam Fuson called for the bell after
The Brutal one applied the Mandible Claw on Lil C for the victory.
The next contest was a first round match in the WBW Championship
tournament an the new Title Belt was brought to the ring by the lovely
Ms. Amanda Napier. This match saw The Re-enforcer Devlin Anderson in a
hard hitting brawl verses someone who he helped to train, the rising
star Jason Legend. The fans were treated to one of the best matches
that you will ever see as these two combatants fought with everything
they had. In the end it was Devlin Anderson who prevailed and in a
show of mutual respect Anderson hoisted Legend’s hand to honor
Legend’s effort and the crowd showed their approval with a huge
applause for both competitors.
The fifth match has been previously announced to be special Handicap
match with the Lords of the Dance taking on The President of WBW,
Dude Rock. Rock also announced that if the LOTD was not victorious
that he would invoke a special performance clause in their contract
with WBW and release them from the company.
The LOTD came to the ring donning the traditional Lucha Libre masks,
dancing, and having a good time with the fans while Rock was escorted
to the ring by his wife Sharon Rock. Dude Rock took the microphone and
announced that as promised on the World’s Best Wrestling Facebook page
he has a little surprise for everyone and a “little” surprise it was
as Rock brought out WrestleOhio’s V.L. Stricklett aka “The Mastermind”
and his wife and WrestleOhio co-manager Sarah. But the surprise was
that The Mastermind wasn’t there just to manage but to participate in
the match as well.
Loony reminded him that this was a Handicap match and therefore The
Mastermind was ineligible to be in the match as it would not be a
handicap match but Stricklett showed the crowd just why he is called
The Mastermind by announcing that the LOTD would be the handicapped
ones, giving the mic to Sarah who introduced the third member of Team
Rock to the ring… the returning local legend TANK RUNYON! The match
saw a very dominant and strong Tank Runyon who had ringside fans
extremely visibly enraged. The LOTD took a tremendous beating but
using the advantage of the masks was able to pull out a very
surprising upset victory that had Loony and the fans gloating at a
very upset Team Rock.
The sixth match another 1st round WBW Championship Tournament match
as The Dark Child Matt Taylor battled the ever popular Flash Fury in a
wild melee that saw the action spill over into the crowd as Taylor and
Fury battled all over the Grandstand and into the bleachers! This was
no doubt a 5-star match that ended in a double count-out.
The main event saw Relentless Ron Mathis challenge TNA Impact Star
Robbie E to a dance-off first before their match. Both men took each
other to their limits and the crowd was firmly behind Robbie E who
wrestled to victory in a very exciting match that was the perfect end
to a truly historic Debut of World’s Best Wrestling!
WBW would like to thank the great people of Pike County, the Pike
