Very long version of the show:
(1) In a 2nd round match, Davey Richards defeated Egotistico Fantastico.
Richards wanted to end it fast but his attack was matched by the speed of Ego who ran Richards all over the ring and then on the floor where the fight went into the fans. The referee gave the men some leeway and held counting them out. Ego went for a suicide dive as Richards was prone in a chair but this time it failed. Richards had to drag Ego and his cape back into the ring. Richards went on the attack working on Ego’s left leg. Briefly he began talking to the fans instead of beating on Ego. Richards kept on the knee even as the fans cheered on Ego. Ego fought back with punches and kicks to the ribs. He followed with a takeover slam for two. Richards ducked a move and decked Ego with an enziguri and waited for Ego to get to his feet before striking with a kick but his next kick met air as Ego was out of the corner. Ego hit a dropkick to the head and locked in Taco Pizza and let it go for a DVD for two. Richards got a dropkick to the knee and a kick to the chest before locking in the Cloverleaf but Ego got to the ropes. Richards taunted the fans who cheered for Ego before he went up top and went nowhere as Ego met him. They came off when Ego hit a huricurana for two. Ego went for the Queso Killer but Richards countered out and this time the Cloverleaf got him a submission win.
(2) In a 2nd round match, TJ Perkins defeated Shane Hollister.
Early on there was a feeling out process of sorts and neither man gained full control. Perkins briefly locked in a Human Torture Rack but let it go for an armbar. Hollister hit a double knee to the chest but Perkins fired back with a neckbreaker for two. Both men fought for control with waistlocks but Hollister got in a kick and slingshot elbow for two. Hollister locked in a double underhook bodylock but Perkins got out catching Hollister in a leg submission but Hollister made it to the ropes only to be hit with chest chops. Both men used the ropes as leverage to keep the other off guard and ended up on the floor as Hollister landed on Perkins. Back in the ring Hollister went up and he got caught by Perkins with both feet to the face. Perkins missed a spinning kick but Hollister hit his but he got caught in a Cloverleaf but somehow Hollister got to the ropes for the break. Perkins looked pissed off as he hit a brainbuster but he got rolled up for two and decked with a Hollister kick to the chest for two. Perkins was slow to get to his feet and his goldbricking nearly worked in a inside cradle for two. The two men fired shots at each other as Hollister hit the Voorhees Complex but somehow Perkins kicked out and won via Scorpion Deathlock submission.
(3) In a 2nd round match, Johnny Gargano defeated Louis Lyndon.
Gargano jumped Lyndon as he was removing his ceremonial afro wig and kept the punches going until Lyndon fired in some shots. Lyndon got a head scissor which made Gargano bail to the floor only to come back in to be hit with a double chop. Lyndon got spit in his face and then kicks to his head from Gargano. But instead of going after Lyndon, Gargano took some time to use Lyndon’s headband as his own. Gargano added the wig before attacking Lyndon with a rear chinlock. The fans were behind Lyndon as he fought to his feet hitting forearms but his armdrag attempt failed as Gargano slipped off. Lyndon hit a splash but his next corner move was stopped by an STO into the buckles. Gargano ended up on the apron and Lyndon went to attack but he got hit with a spear. Lyndon dropped Gargano to the floor and followed out with a moonsault. Both men got in the ring where Lyndon went to end it with a palm strike but got countered by Gargano who hit a Fisherman buster for two. Lyndon hit several handstrikes but Gargano hit a superkick and avoided another palm strike to roll up Lyndon with the tights.
(4) In a 2nd round match, Silas Young defeated Jon Moxley.
Moxley didn’t wait for the introductions as he jumped Young and both men ended up on the floor using the ring apron, guard rails and anything else they could grab as weapons. Finally the two men came back to the ring Young got Moxley on the mat with a side headlock trying to slow things down. Moxley countered out into a head scissor but Young countered out into a Boston Crab. Moxley spun his legs and powered out but Young hit a slingshot neckbreaker from the ring apron. Moxley fired back with forearms and chops in the ring and on the floor. Back in the ring Moxley went to work on the arm going for the Chicken Wing submission but Young got out with a suplex. Moxley went for the Chicken Wing again but got caught in the Boston Crab only to see Young countered out. Moxley and Young traded punches but Moxley grabbed Young by the hair and threw him to the ring apron. Back in the ring Moxley went to work on the neck with a submission vise hold. Young fought out but got caught in a figure four head scissor submission. Young freed himself only to be hit with a dropkick and an arrogant pin attempt from Moxley who went back to the neck. Young escaped with a kick to the head but missed a corner move. Moxley went for a clothesline but got caught by Young in a modified surfboard with forearm shots to the face. Moxley nearly tapped but got out and delivered forearms and went up top but Young moved and got a pin for two. Moxley went back up and this time hit a missile dropkick and a DDT for two. Moxley locked in a rear naked choke hold but somehow Young got out with shots to the knee but the choke was locked back in by Moxley. Young rolled to his stomach so Moxley switched to a traditional sleeper but Young got to his feet and fought out only to be caught in it again but this time Young got to the ropes and after a break he hit an enziguri followed by the Chicken Wing but Moxley fought out. Both men traded moves but it was Young who came out on top with a Finlay Roll into an Arabian Press.
(5) Dark City Fight Club (Jon Davis & Kory Chavis) defeated the James Boys (Bo & Luke).
Sorry to say but this was an ass kicking from bell to bell as the DCFC was in total control. Davis and Chavis humiliated the James Boys ending the misery with Project Mayhem. After the match Chavis took the mic to say January 16th the DCFC will Evolve in Rahway, NJ. (see www.evolvewrestling.com for more info)
(6) In a semi-finals match, Davey Richards defeated TJ Perkins.
This quite possibly was Perkins’ highest profile match since joining FIP and he showed a serious face during the introductions. Both men kept the action mat based in the opening minutes and surprisingly Perkins was able to go hold for hold with the FIP World champion. Perkins focused on the left arm and shoulder of Richards who tried to counter with headlocks and waistlock takeovers. Richards grabbed the leg and went for a submission but Perkins got to the ropes causing a break. Perkins got on the offensive again with a front facelock into armdrags. Perkins kept control with an armbar as Richards tried to escape but got tagged with a dropkick and again back to the mat with the armbar. Richards got out with a kick and then tried to bully the referee who was close to calling for the DQ but cooler heads prevailed. Instead Richards laid into Perkins with kicks to the chest sending Perkins to the ring apron to recover. Richards gave him too much time as Perkins hit a cross bodyblock from the top for two and traded kicks and forearms with Richards. Both men nearly knocked the other out with the kicks to the head and barely beat the standing ten count. Both men fired in the head shots but Richards grabbed the left leg for a Dragon Screw only to be hit with a superkick for two. Perkins was hit with a German suplex but fought out into a cross armbreaker after a kimura. Richards got into the Cloverleaf but Perkins countered into a small package for two into a Figure Four Deathlock but Richards got to the ropes. Richards fought off a facelock into the corner only to be tagged with a kick but Perkins shoulder block met the ring post and Perkins tapped out to a kimura lock.
(7) In a semi-finals match, Silas Young defeated Johnny Gargano.
Gargano waited until Young got to ringside before diving over with a plancha. Gargano dragged Young into the ring where the attack continued with forearms to the face. Young fought back ducking a move and hitting Gargano with a powerslam. Gargano blocked a ring apron spear and dropped Gargano with a DDT for two. Young grabbed Gargano on the apron where they fought for position and they came back in the ring with Gargano hitting a superkick for two. Gargano got his breath but hit full nelson was turned into a victory roll for two by Young. Gargano hit a running forearm to the corner but Young hit a backbreaker for two. Young went for the Finlay Roll but Gargano countered onto the ropes and he hit a spinning neckbreaker like move. Both men went for a small package and actually rolled around the ring. Gargano went for a rollup but this time the tights didn’t help him. Young locked in a full nelson with a body scissor and despite his best effort Gargano tapped out.
(8) Drake Younger won the Dragons Gate USA Fray! Match. Also in the match was: Chris Jones, Brad Attitude, Flip Kendrick, Arik Cannon, Dave Cole, Scotty Vortekz & Marion Fontaine.
I didn’t try to keep up with this amazing & crazy match which must be seen on a Dragons Gate USA event (this one will be on the Peterson Cup DVD as well). It began with two wrestlers and another entered every two minutes and eliminations happened the normal way except for countouts. The order of entry was as follows: Arik Cannon, Brad Attitude, Dave Cole, Marion Fontaine, Flip Kendrick, Drake Younger, Chris Jones and Scotty Vortekz. The order of elimination was as follows: Cannon by Kendrick’s Spiral Tap 540, Cole by Younger’s half nelson suplex, Fontaine by Attitude’s Adjustment, Kendrick also by the Attitude Adjustment, Jones via a Vortekz/Younger double team top rope move, Attitude by Younger and Vortekz was beat by Younger and Cop Killer like move.
(9) In a Texas Bullrope Match, Wrestling Legend "Outlaw" Ron Bass defeated "Superstar" Sean Davis (w/Phil Davis & Amy Vitale)
All of this stemmed from the October 3rd FIP event where Brad Attitude defeated Heartbreak Enterprises member Rhett Titus for the FIP Florida Heritage championship with some help from Ron Bass. After the match Davis called Bass out to face him tonight, not knowing it would turn into a bullrope match. Davis refused to let the referee tie the rope around his wrist. So Bass grabbed the cowbell and hit Davis with it which allowed the referee to tie it on. Davis slid to the floor and Bass dragged him into the ringpost and then Davis came back in the ring bleeding from the post shot. Bass tagged Davis in the gut with the cowbell and then rubbed the rope into the eyes. Bass dragged Davis to the middle of the ring where he continued to use the bell as a weapon. With no DQ Bass used the rope to choke Davis. Vitale got on the ropes and with referee busy it allowed Phil Davis to toss baby powder into Bass’ eyes. This allowed Davis time to recover and use the rope to choke down Bass. Bass fought to his feet and he smashed Davis in the head with the bell which made the cut on the forehead even deeper. Things got ugly when Bass went to hit Davis but the referee was pulled in the middle and he was hit with the bell cutting him open. This gave Phil Davis a chance to once again get involved using the cowbell on Bass. But Bass ducked the shot and Phil Davis was leveled by the bell cutting him open. Bass smashed both men with the bell sending blood all over the place. Bass got in one final shot with the bell which knocked Davis out long enough to get the pin. After the match Vitale bravely confronted Bass in the ring but she ended up over his knee getting spanked like a seven year old.
(10) In the finals, Davey Richards defeated Silas Young
Richards got the referee to check something on Young’s kneepad and Richards used this to attack. But it backfired as the fight went to the floor as the other 14 competitors came to offer support. Finally the match came back to the ring where Young hit Richards with several right hand punches. Richards fought back with a knee to the gut but his DR Driver was countered into a pin attempt by Young. Richards hit a running knee to the gut before taking the match to the mat with body scissors. Young fought out of the hold but Richards kept control as he taunted the fans. Richards hit a slam and a top rope headbutt for two after a cocky pin attempt. Richards followed with a back suplex but Young fired back with bodyshots only to be taken down by Richards who got in the referee’s face over a slow count. Young caught Richards with a backdrop and absorbed some kicks from Richards and he decked Richards with a kick to the face but couldn’t make a pin. Young hit two clotheslines and a cross bodyblock for two. Young followed with an enziguri into a Fisherman Buster also for two before locking into the full nelson body scissor but Richards got to the ropes. Both men went up top and fought for control and Richards ended up hitting an in-ring missile dropkick followed by several stiff kicks to Young’s body. Richards followed with a handspring move for two and waited for Young to get to his feet. The DR Driver was blocked again even as Richards delivered knees to the face. Young countered out into a backbreaker for two. Young went up for a move but missed but not the superkick or the Finlay Roll into the Arabian Press but somehow Richards kicked out!!! Richards cut Young off as he went up and they came off release German suplex. Richards hit the DR Driver but somehow Young kicked out of the pin! Richards called for a top rope move and came off in a Shooting Star Press and he won the trophy after locking in the Cloverleaf in the middle of the ring. After the match Richards said he was the most dominate wrestler going today, however he wouldn’t be dominate without the level of competition he faced this weekend. Richards said all of the Peterson competitors were the future of wrestling and they would Evolve soon.
