In the main event Rocky
Reynolds faced former NWA World Heavyweight champion Ron
"The Truth" Killings. It went to a no contest
because of outside interference when several rule breakers
charged the ring from the locker room and attacked Rocky.
They invited Killings to jump Rocky. Killings got the group
away and got ready to give Rocky the beating of his life.
Out of the blue, he started a ass-whipping on all the
attackers. At that point Rocky and Killings became
allies in the ring and stood off the attack to the delight of
the fans in attendance.
CITY PARK PAVILION
Tri-State introduced a new rookie referee by the name of Roger

CITY PARK PAVILION
The evening got off to a great
start with six man action as the team of Johnny Hard and Team
Hot Stuff took on DJ Skittles, Kano, and Twisted Youth. Skittles
and Kid Inferno started the match out and went back and forth
with some nice moves including a lionsault by Inferno. Skittles
took control for his team by hitting a beautiful elbow followed
by his version of the people's elbow (Taste of the Rainbow).
Youth was tagged in and after a couple strong-style forearms
Inferno caught Youth with a yakuza kick. As Youth got to his
feet Inferno jumped on his back and went for what looked like
the Code Red, but instead came back up and over Youth's head
landing him in a face buster. After another exchange between the
two, Inferno tagged out to Pyro, who came in and started going
to work on Youth. At one point, Youth got the boot up, sending
Pyro down, and he made the tag to Kano. Kano and Pyro put on an
excellent display of chain wrestling, and Kano showed off his
high flying skills with a swanton bomb. When Youth and Inferno
got tagged back in, Youth hit a 2K Bomb, or as he calls it, the
"Requiem for a Dream", but only got a two count.
Towards the end of the match, Inferno went for a hurracanranna,
but Youth blocked it, and Kano came in dropkicked Inferno's head
while he was hanging upside down. Inferno shot back up and Youth
& Kano hit a powerbomb/neckbreaker. All hell broke lose at
this point, and while Kano was fighting with Pyro on the outside
and DJ Skittles was tangling with Inferno, Johnny Hard came into
the ring and spiked Youth with a jumping DDT to get the pinfall.
After the match as Hard put the boots to Youth, Skittles ran in
and hit an ace crusher (Stunner) on Hard.
The second match of the night would be a three way dance. It
would be Chris Draven vs Double Dragon vs Jake Layton. I arrived
at the end of this match and really just caught the finish of
Draven hitting his Super Kick on both men and picking up the
Up next was Star making his
way to the ring with an all new look. Star informed the rowdy
Parkersburg fans that he will no longer be Star, now he will be
called Vinny Viagra. His opponent would be Erik Darkstorm. These
two of wrestled each other several times and know each other
very well and that is what made this match so great. These two
men rocked each other going back and fourth. Armdrags, and
head scissors every where! All it took was one mistake though as
Darkstorm went up top but wasted just a second to much as Vinny
was able to get out of Darkstorm's amazing 450 splash. Vinny capitalized
by hitting the suplex ace crusher combo topick up the win.
The fourth match up was a tag team match that featured the
return of Justin Kace managing the team of Trik Nasty and Max
Power. Those two men would go up against the duo of Romeo Godwin
and Shawn Parks. The crowd was red-hot and really in to this
match! Nasty and Power cheated their way through the entire
match and hand the upper hand virtually the entire match.
Although Godwin and Parks both showed amazing strength
throughout the match. Senior Official Tony Wolfe was acting bizarre
through out this entire match though. We found out why in the
end, as Godwin and Parks had the match but Wolfe would not count
to three! Then from behind Nasty and Power roll them up and win
after the fastest three count in Tri-State history! Tony Wolfe
screwed Parks and Godwin! They didn't like that any what so ever
and attacked Wolfe with steel chairs! Finally after about five
minutes Wolfe got to his feet and said he was done with
Tri-State and something to the effect he was taking over!?!?
The main event would be Chance Profit going up against David
Flair. Before the match Flair had something to say. Flair took
the time to run down all the Parkersburg fans and early on
getting a "Flair Sucks" chant going. Flair showed
early on that he could wrestle by getting the upper hand on
Profit. Flair was able to keep Profit grounded for the most part
of the match with several submissions. Profit with stood all
odds and was able to fight back. In the end though Profit made
the mistake of going up to the top rope at which time Flair hit
the ropes and caught Profit with a inverted flipping Splash
Mountain bomb to pick up the win in a very well done match.
Flair then talked about how he beat Tri-States best guy. Richard
Arpin then got on the mic and told him he didn't think he could
beat Rocky Reynolds! The challenge was then set for an upcoming
We then saw a battle royal that ended on a very low note. Jake
Layton was able to win, but the Kid Inferno took a very hard
fall in the battle royal landing on the back of his head on the
concrete. He was delivering a dangerous huracanrana to Twisted
Youth but landed very awkwardly. An ambulance was sent and
Inferno was taken away. One day later though Inferno is home
suffering from a concussion and a few staples in the back of his
head but lucky that is all that came out of it. Inferno was
definitely being watched out for on that night.

It was back to the City Park
once again with a packed crowed of rowdy fans. The ring announcer
for the night would be Johnny Hard. The referee would be Shane
The opening contest would be a
tag team match. Out first was the most established duo in NWA
Tri-State, Team Hottstuff, Kid Inferno & Pyro. Inferno
proceeded to get the crowed all fired up. Their opponents were
what I thought was an interesting combination of Twisted Youth and
Chris Draven. Draven is all about Tradition, and being Old School,
while I would consider Twisted Youth a worker of the new era.
Needless to say these two men coexisted surprisingly well. Youth
got the upperhand on Inferno early on after Inferno's "Code
Red" was reversed in to a version of a sitout powerbombed
that folded Inferno like a paper towel. Youth stayed on Inferno
and dominated him with a hiptoss neckbreaker followed by a cross
face halo, (sort of a straight jacket Corino driver). The match
went back and forth from that point on. Draven showcased his old
school style with moves like a running elbow drop, and of course
the flying lariat. Pyro was dominated through out the match with a
couple double team moves from the team of Youth & Draven. Pyro
did hit a cool split legged moonsault on Youth at one point.
Inferno took it to Youth later on in the match with a huracanrana
that sent Youth to the outside. Inferno followed it up with a Asai
Moonsault, but overshot Youth and landed very hard on the ground.
The move had Inferno all bloody and pretty much out of it the rest
of the match. In the end Inferno was mouthing Youth off and Youth
had heard enough gave him a palm strike, followed by Chris
Draven's finisher the super kick to pick up the win.
The second match of the night
was the debut of a new star that went by the name of Gator
McCalkster I believe. I apologize in advance in the last name is
wrong. Anyway, Gator was accompanied to the ring by former NWA
Tri-State Jr. Heavyweight Champion, Star. Star cut a great promo,
running down the Parkersburg fans, but more importantly putting
over Gator in the ring. From what I heard Gator worked for WCW at
some point but who knows. His opponent was "Spotlight"
Chris Sanders. Sander brought his NWA Southern Junior Heavyweight
out with him but it was not on the line. I really enjoyed Gator,
although he was the heel he was funny as hell. The much larger
Gator took it to Spotlight virtually the entire match. Spotlight
had spurts of offense but nothing major. He hit a pretty good
plauncha to the outside on Star and Gator at one point in the
match. In the end though after Star had already interfered several
times earlier he ran in the ring and got Gator DQ'd.
Third match was DJ Skittles
& Double Dragon vs Da Dawg & Wrecking Ball. A pretty good
match that ended with a reverse rana off the top rope by Dragon to
Then Skittles pinned his own
partner to become the new Television Champion. 24/7 rules.
Match 5 was Romeo Godwin vs Max
Power. They both played to the fans, in opposite ways of course.
It was fine for a little while, but I think they could of cut that
a little short. The match it's self was good when they were
actually wrestling and I would of liked to of seen more of that.
Power picked up the win with a fireman's carry in to a ace
Trik Nasty battled Shawn Parks
to declare a new NWA Tri-State Heavyweight Champion. However, this
match went to a no contest after Max Power ran in. Then a huge
brawl took place.
The Main Event was Chance Profit
vs Ricky Murdock for the NWA National Title. This was a great
contest that went back in fourth but ended when Murdock hit Profit
in the head with a cow bell for the win.
