7/28/13. Les Foufounes Électriques. Montreal, QC. This was a Free outdoor show that was switched to inside as the sky opened up. This was my second Battlewar show and they didn’t disappoint. Usual very loud fans there and everybody had a great time…the way it should be! Here are the results:
- “Speedball” Mike Bailey def. Ryan Rogan. Bailey is probably one of the best Indy wrestlers in Canada. He gives it his all in every match and he just keeps getting better and better. Rogan was actually better this time seeing him as opposed to the first time. Great hard hitting, high flying match but what else would you expect from Speedball? Great opening contest.
- Tabarnak de Team & “Dirty” Buxx Belmar beat Radioactive Wave & “Superstar” Shayne Hawke. The competitors in this match are as good as it gets. TdT members Mathieu St. Jacques & Thomas Dubois should have tag team gold everywhere they compete. They had a great partner in Buxx. He was surprisingly tame on this show but still as entertaining as ever. On the other side of the ring was Travis Toxic and “Surfer” Mitch Thompson known collectively as Radioactive Wave. I dare you to find anybody more exciting than these two! “Superstar” Shayne Hawke is one of the hardest working wrestlers in Ontario! He’s damn good. Anyway, really good match and I’d like to see these six face each other again. That’s all I’m going to say about it.
- Giant Tiger beat Leon Saver. Still upset about somebody stealing his BBQ grill, Giant Tiger pulled no punches in this highly entertaining match. Tiger pulled out a 6-1-9 that would make Rey Mysterio want to leave Monday Night television! Oh wait! See! Speaking of Monday Night…ever wonder where CM Punk got the “Best In The World” saying from? Right here…Giant Tiger. Saver got his shorts ripped off him and spent most of his time in the ring wearing a thong. Tiger almost got that off of him too! Nice try Leon but it’s gonna take more than being naked to beat Giant Tiger! He promised to get to the bottom of the theft on the next show!!
- Green Phantom beat Urban Miles. This match proved one thing to me…Urban Miles is great at screaming like a little girl! I think this contest would’ve been over quicker if it wasn’t for the interference from Miles’ manager Mike Paterson. The last event from Battlewar that I was at featured a match with Paterson constantly getting involved until Green Phantom chased him away. I guess Paterson is trying to find some guys to get rid of him. Good luck with that! No surprise here as Big Green gets the win.
- Twiggy def. Union Jack. Twiggy might be the most most popular guy in Battlewar! Either that or everybody in the seats just really likes Bon Jovi! His opponent was straight from England…Union Jack! This was a really good match too! I think Jack is getting used to the Canadian style of wrestling…good for him. Not good enough for the “W”.
- Franky The Mobster def. Shane Matthews by DQ. I think he did anyway. This match came about after the last event. Scott “Jagged” Parker was accidentally hit by Frankie and Shane took offense to it. Amusing since at the start of this, Franky had his arm around Parker! Franky is a very large, scary man. It’s a good thing he’s friendly! Not too friendly with Matthews from 3.0 however. Very hard hitting contest until Matthews got a little upset and hit Franky over the head with a beer bottle! The locker room basically emptied after that happened. Twiggy was ready to kill him and even Parker was wondering why he did it! They wrapped a towel around Frankie’s head but I didn’t see any blood. It was then announced by ring announcer Biff Wellington that the show was over! Lots of confusion and even boos. I feel sorry for Shane Matthews now when Franky gets a hold of him!
So another Battlewar event is in the books and I couldn’t be happier with them. Massive amounts of respect for the entire roster! Well done guys!
Time to plug some upcoming shows. The next event is Battlewar 11 which is taking place on August 7, 2013. Go to it! Also, during the intermission I purchased a couple chances to win tickets to Heavy MTL on August 10-11. There is going to be wrestling this year (Heavy Mania) along with a who’s who in metal music. No, I didn’t win. Go to this too!!
