WAR Supershow results from Atlanta, Georgia 16 april 2013
C&C defeat Alabama attitude
via Overtime and signal for the Wolves that come out applauding the Wrestling Factory. Davey tells them that they may have been on a roll lately, but they have never been hunted. Eddie says that the hunt is now on and at Border Wars, the World will know that the factory has been blown up.
Coleman replies saying that the Wolves are in for one hell of a battle. And if they survive the steel cage WAR in England, they go in Overtime where....Alexander completes him no one feels better than the C&C Wrestling Factory. All four are in the middle of the ring and Davey says good luck and shakes Coleman's hand, so does Alexander with Eddie. This prompts Corino out and he moans again about how stupid all this respect shit is. You want titles, stab them in the back, shoot them in the head, get the damn W no matter what. That's what he thought his boys and he knows that the Wolves are afraid of them. If they were not they would put those damn titles on the line. Davey just laughs and says that more sheep is more food. So bring it on Corino. Eddie looks at Davey and tells Corino that he and Davey are the best tag ever and that they will take on any member of SCUM any given day and the Wolves would still come on top. Corino signals for SCUM and Rhett and Compton come out attacking the Wolves. As they are rejected, C&C clears the ring with another Overtime and the segment ends with an intense staredown between the 4 men left standing in the ring
ACH vs Mike Sydal
Mike Sydal and ACH flew all over the ring, the barricades, between the fans. Hurricanranas, corcscrew neck breackers, diving sentons, jumping DDT's, jumping elbow drops, Fujiwara armbars, chicken wings, snap suplexes, hang over legdrops, diving stomps and all the arsenal. In the end ACH caught Mike with a tiger suplex and followed with his bearhud DDT for a great win
. The two men were applauded by the crowd and chants of This was awesome filled the arena, until.....the Hooligans attacked. Full nelson locked by Romero, and spear by Koslov put Sydal down. Then Ach tried a springboard neckbreaker, only to be met with a big kick by Koslov. Doomsday knee drop and Ach is left bloodied as TD tries to make the save. Only to suffer a double lariat, a brainbuster and a snap suplex on the concrete as the Atlanta crowd was booing the hooligans out of the building.
Jimmy Jacobs and Karl Anderson (SCUM) vs BJ Whitmer and Mark Briscoe (ROH)
All out brawl. Clotheslines, legsweeps into the barricade, and SCUM worked BJ's neck. Neck wrenches, side head locks, neckbreakers, drivers, even the Sliced bread #3
. Bj was resilient and fought back with knee strikes, suplexes and finally got the separation after hitting two snap suplexes in a row on both Jacobs and Anderson. Mark got the hot tag and was on fire. He beat the crap out of Jacobs with jabs and short-arm clotheslines. He pulled a nice Pepsi Twist and a protobomb, but missed again the Froggy Bow. Anderson came in. Snap suplex and crossface in the middle of the ring. BJ was cut by a Spear from Jacobs and Mark passed out refusing to tap. Karl Anderson gets one more over the Briscoes. (Scum – Roh 7-3)
Adam Cole vs Mike Mondo.
Mondo returned after the foot injury suffered at Death before dishonor 10 with hunger and took on one of ROH's best. The match was a clinical affair with Mondo using his strength and working with backbreakers, side slams, leg sweeps and leg drops to slow down Cole. But Cole exploded and had an answer for everything. He pulled out a Brainbuster, he used dragon sleepers and neck wrenches working the neck that bugged Mondo in the past. He even pulled out some knee drops to the back of the head. But Mondo refused to tap or quit. He got a big near-fall with a reverse STO and set up for the double arm DDT. Cole tackled him to the corner, hit some shoulder tackles, then came of the ropes with a neckbreacker. Florida Key and another W for Cole
who hold a promo and said is about damn time someone nottces that he wins his matches clean and simple. He wants a world title shot. That made Strong come out and Strong laughed reminding Cole that he lost the SOFT, the TV title and the rematch. "In my book Adam Cole you are not even worthy of being an ROH star. And you dare asking for title shots? Work, and maybe, just maybe you will get them. Stop bitching and wanting other's people places"
Adam slapped Strong and hit him with a fast Florida Key leaving the crowd stunned for a moment. Adam left the arena with a mixed reaction.
As Cole was leaving the ring, QT Marshall came out with RD Evans as they were laughing at an enraged Rodderick Strong. RD slapped him and mumbled about Roddy stealing youngsters space and being just a wash-up, a has-been, a bridesmaid. Roddy answered with a sick kick.
That drew out to a big pop Nigel who made the match official: Rodderick Strong vs Qt Marshall.
Roderick Strong vs Qt Marshall
I won't lie. The crowd was somehow dead as they didn't like Qt and Roddy played the injury from the earlier Florida Key from Adam Cole. The match was ok, and they gave Qt plenty of time. He worked the neck with head locks and some neckbreakers -who actually were good-, but the pace was really slow. Qt did a sloppy vertical suplex -compared to Elgin's or Steen's ones- that got him a near fall. He went for a backbreaker adding insult to Roddy's injury, but Roddy remained alive. As we just went past the 15 minutes mark, Roddy hit a great dropkick and started beating the hell out of QT with elbow smashes, fast lariats and big kicks to the face. He topped that with a belly to belly suplex that planted QT in the mat. He picked Qt up for the Gibson Driver, but got struck in the back by RD Evans. God's gift by QT, but Roddy kicked out.
Qt went top rope for a kind of diving legdrop. Roddy rolled out of the way and waited him to get up. Double knee gutbuster and the pin as Roddy got a nice pop from the crowd. And an even bigger one when he hit another sick kick to RD.
Co main-event Tv Title match
Matt Taven (c) vs Homicide
Fot this one Nigel pulled a great one of his sleeve. Contract vs Title. He came to the ring and announced Taven's opponent is none other than ......Homicide. Cide got a huge pop from the fans and Taven came out with Martini. He said that a sexy man like him would never fight a sleezy, bad smelling pero as Homicide. Nigel got his shoulders up and just said "Ok! Then i will strip you. And you have to win this match as it is with no time limit and a falls count anywhere one. And the truth is Martini is banned from the ringside."
Big pop for the announcements.
In the violent environment 'Cide felt like home. He drove Taven in the steel steps slammed him on the entrance ramp. And even hit a DDT on the concrete. Taven tried to escape, but there was no point. Homicide was all over him so Taven started actually to wrestle. He flew of the barricade with a kick to Homicide's head, hit a facebuster on the concrete and got the first near fall.
People were really into this and especially into Cide. The match was an all out brawl and both got equal amount of spots. The story told was that this is Cide's home and the no dq environment favours him. He tried many times to end the match with big moves as air raid sirens and powerbombs that got long near-falls, even seeming to win the match twice, once after a Brooklyn Lariat and the second one after Samoan driver in the middle of the ring on a chair.
Taven was in the match and countered with dragon whips, facebusters, neck drops, and his ever spectacular spin kicks. As Cide was in a big advantage readying for another lariat, Taven dodged and low-blowed hard Cide. But it was allowed as this was a falls count anywhere. He then blocked the foot, hooked the neck and hit the spin DDT for a near fall. And just to add insult to injury he drove Cide into a chair with the Gringo Killa for a big win. A down Cide was cheered by the fans that thanked him for being here from day one as Taven raised his title and smashed it in Cide's head knocking him out in the middle of the ring much to the clear displeasure of the fans.
Main Event: World Tag Team Titles The American Wolves (c) – vs Scum (Titus and Compton)
Kevin Kelly mentioned that the Scum tag is not a easy prey for the Wolves as, at this moment, they hold the tag titles in 3 territories and that is something not easy to achieve. Caleb Seltzer mentionned that they are the current New England Wrestling Tag Team Champions and they have been on a roll lately. But as Nigel (who joined the commentary ) said "This is ROH, and this is the land of the Wolves".
The NECW Tag Champions even brought their belts with them and mocked Wolves entrance as they were heading to the ring. When Davey and Eddie came out there was an a huge pop and the American Wolves came to the ring slappng hands with fans and celebrating. Well, it lasted a few minutes though, as Titus dropkicked Davey in the head, while Eddie ate a huge boot from Compton. Eddie rolled to the corner and Davey started the match for the Wolves with Compton.
They worked over Davey's ribs a lot with abdominal stretches, body sccisors, double knee drops and rib breakers. Frequent short tags and a great tag move when Compton held Davey in an electric chair position and Titus came of the ropes with a dropkick to the head, move that actually drew applause.
But Davey is not easy to put down and he kicked out just after two. It was then the mistake came. Titus went for a big boot coming of the ropes, but Davey caught the foot and dragon sweeped him hard. He started to put the boots on Titus's legs stomping them, whipping them and stomping again. He dragged him to the Wolves corner and locked in an Ankle Lock as Eddie locked a triangle choke.
They held this exactly for the count of 4 and Davey tagged out. Eddie smacked Titus's head into Davey's and hit a snap suplex. 2 count. He went to the ropes and nailed a lariat and a roundhouse.
He raised Titus up for a Brainbuster, but just before nailing it Corino disctracted the ref. Titus went down, but kicked out at two taking full advantage of the distraction. Eddie went for a powerbomb, but Titus countered with a hurricanrana, and tagged a fresh Compton in. Clotheslines, shoulder tackles, inverted atomic drop and the first near-fall for SCUM.
He signalled Titus to come to the ring. They hit a double elbow drop, a double legsweep and Compton covered. Two, but Eddie was groggy. Huge spinebuster by Compton and a swinging neckbreaker. Kevin Kelly went nuts screaming ....."They beat the Wolves", but Davey broke the pin with an axe handle smash.
Hot tag and Davey hit a running forearm to Titus, sending him of the apron, only to turn into an STO by Compton. He went for the Snapmare Driver, but Davey reversed the position. 1,2,3 German suplexes. Dragon Suplex, and the running soccer kick. 1,2.....2.99 (If they weren't such jerks, they would actually be great wrestlers -Nigel McGuiness-).
Compton kicks out to Davey's shock.
He calls for Eddie on the top rope. Diving stomp by Eddie, followed by another one for Davey. Powerbomb (Davey) into a double knee backbreaker and Compton is out, but Titus interferes and allows Corino to slip Compton something. Right in Eddie's stomach, and another punch to Davey's face, busting him while he covered.
Near fall and Compton gets in control. Scum work over Davey's cut with foot stomps, knee drops and elbows. Finally, Rhett gets him up for Retribution and nails it, but Eddie somehow breaks the pin with a missile dropkick. Davey tags out and Eddie destroys Titus with chops. He bends him and nails and enzugiri crashing him down. Achilles lock, nowhere to go, but Compton interferes again and the ref doesn't see Titus tapping . He returns and Titus pulls a small package. 2 count and tag to Compton. Tag to Davey. German, Belly to Belly and Ankle Lock locked in....Compton screams, but gets to the ropes. Davey drags him back and calls Eddie. Toombstone piledriver into a Superkick. One...Two...Three. The Wolves retain.
But Scum surround the ring and Anderson, Hardy and Jacobs put the boots on the tired Wolves. They land a few punches but a dropkick from behind takes down Eddie. Immediately Ace Crusher. Davey is dropped on his head by Compton with a Snapmare Driver as Jay Lethal and Jay Briscoe storm to the ring. Titus falls like a rock from a Superkick, but Lethal eats a big chair shot to the head from Jacobs and a Twist of Fate on the apron.
Jay Briscoe fights with Anderson and kills him with jabs but a chair shot to the back makes him scream.
While Lethal is driven with another Twist of Fate through a chair Jay is killed with a Snapmare Driver, a Retribution and an Ace Crusher.
The show ends with SCUM reigning supreme once more and Davey bloodied looking at a knocked out Eddie. (7-4)
