Match 1: Mario Bokara vs Matt Macintosh

Simply put in a word; “WOW”. When you come into a new city with new faces in the crowd you have to start the night off with a bang! Matt Macintosh and Mario Bokara did just that. Macintosh, who came to the ring alone (Minus his newly formed “Apple Core”) wanted to show the audience and company that he can get this job done on his own! After starting off with some very innovative offense, Macintosh, who if you recall is the very first WrestlePro Champion, seemed to have the crowd & critics silenced as he was going for a big upset win! But after going to the well one too many times trying to pull off his famous “Apple Slicer”, Mario Bokara turned the tables and it was time for a Croation-Suplex extravaganza, including one that Mario caught Macintosh from the second turnbuckle and dropped him flush on the blades of his shoulders and neck! After a valiant effort by “The Bad Apple”, Mario quickly turned the “ON SWITCH” on and if you know anything about Bokara and his abilities; once this turns on, it does NOT turn off. Mario was able to lock in the Croation-Lock arm bar submission for the tap out victory! A great way to start off our night in Cresskill!

Your Winner by Submission: Mario Bokara

Match 2: Triple Threat Tag Team Match – Donovan/Blake (The Wrestlepreneurs) vs The Taboo Crew (Craig Steele and Jenkins) vs Apple Core (Feinstein/Lamorte)

When you look at this match on paper the one thing that stood out was “experience”. Between Craig Steele, Blake, and Donovan there’s over 2 decades of experience combined. But along with experience comes youth and the up and comers such as Micah Jenkins, Maxwell Feinstein, and Valerio Lamorte! It was a solid mix of everything! Feinstein has been known for trying to convince wrestling fans everywhere that he may be the next best thing in pro wrestling but as far as the dance moves were concerned, Jenkins stole that show. Jenkins also stole the show on a wrestling front as this kid has proven that he is ridiculously talented and has a very bright future. The “Apple Core” were trying to gel as a team but their inexperience as a team definitely showed at some points of this contest. A valiant effort and smooth tag team connection from Blake and Donovan proved to the crowd and the company that they’re a tag team who shouldn’t be taken lightly going forward as the WrestlePro tag team division continues to get deeper. But in the end there had to be a winner and after a springboard front flip “Taboo Driver”, applied by Jenkins and Steele, they were able to show everyone that they’ve gelled best here at WrestlePro and this contest for sure!

Your Winner by pinfall: The Taboo Crew… Who’s Bad!?

Match 3: 8-Woman Tag Team Match (C-Bunni, Katarina Leigh, Deonna Purrazzo, Gemma Cross vs Antoinette Marie, Helen Vale, Jen Mavra, Beetrice)

Some people have the idea that when they see “Women’s Wrestling” on the card, they are in for a few athletic moves and couple nice smiles with flashy ring attire. This was a little bit of that for sure, however the generals of the ring with experience (Leigh, Parrazzo, Mavra) definitely showed us that hard hitting isn’t just for the men! This match started off clean but very quickly turned into 8 women doing battle in the middle of the ring and all hell broke loose. We saw Beetrice “The Barbie Killer” come to the ring with a severed Barbie head and in that moment we (The commentators and crowd) knew we were in for some vicious hard hitting out of the rookie, and we got just that! C-Bunni to the dislike of the Cresskill crowd took a massive beating by the likes of all 4 women on the other side of the ring. But in the end, Katarina Leigh and Parrazzo were able to rally the troops and score the victory!

Your Winner by Pinfall: Team Katarina Leigh!

Match 4: WrestlePro Championship Match! Bobby Wayward © vs Anthony Bowens

In one of the most highly anticipated matchups of the evening, Anthony Bowens was seeking not only a chance to reclaim the title but revenge against long time hated rival, Bobby Wayward who had a very confident demeanor heading into this one! This time around however, the rules were thrown out the window as this was scheduled to be a “no disqualification” match. Right away; you would figure this would benefit the champion (Being that in September we saw the debut of an alliance formed between Wayward and undefeated and unstable lunatic; Chris Avery Queling) but quickly we realized that this would only help Bowens in the beginning because his rage was let out in the form of many punches, elbows, and kicks to Wayward’s entire body. Very quickly we saw the emergence of Chris Avery Queling from the back to help his new found (and only) friend in the WrestlePro locker room Bobby Wayward. The match went back and forth and even in a practical 2 on 1 effort, Bowens was able to outlast many attempts for some unfair play and make this a match! Wayward introduced a steel chair into the ring and both men equally gave each other all they had. This, too many, was uncharacteristic of one Anthony Bowens to use a foreign object to try and score the victory but it was quite clear that he was going to pull out all the stops in order to recapture the WrestlePro championship. Unfortunately for Bowens it took just one last momentary distraction by Queling for Wayward to level Bowens with the title belt and knocked Bowens out cold for the 1-2-3.

Your Winner AND STILL WrestlePro Champion: Bobby Wayward

** After the match had concluded, the assault continued. Queling and Wayward stomped away at a lifeless Bowens until a familiar loud Italian theme song hit the speakers and our General Manager, Santino! He bolted to the ring in relief of Bowens! Just before Wayward could attempt to throw one punch to Santino, He was quickly countered and wound up on the receiving end of THE COBRA! It struck and struck fast at Santino was able to help revive Bowens and raise his hand, and letting the crowd of Cresskill, New Jersey know, that this rivalry, is far from over!

Match 5: Chris Avery Queling vs The Beach Bums!

Chris Avery Queling has made a name for himself rather quickly in the first year of this promotion by destroying everything and anything that has come in his path. This rage comes from many years of built up frustration of failed “gimmicks” and characters in which it finally caused this man to snap. Unfortunately for every opponent he has stepped in the ring with (Sadly, myself as well), he has taken every ounce of rage out on them. He has been stepping into the ring in one on one competition but on this night, in order for the company to try and slow down this monster, we witnessed the debut of 3 new individuals who labeled themselves as “The Beach Bums”. They consisted of Freddie IV, Brody, and TJ and they quickly were introduced to the monster known as Chris Avery Queling. For a brief moment we thought the numbers game was finally going to put the big man down and keep him down however we were quickly corrected as “CAQ” destroyed all 3 members as they attempted a massive triple-team move that went quickly south. Sorry, Dudes.

Your Winner and STILL Undefeated: Chris Avery Queling

Match 6: The Bromans (Robbie E, DJ Z, Jesse Godderz) vs The Aesthetic Males (Gibbs, Beefcake, Del)

When this match was first announced, we knew it would be special. We couldn’t necessarily define “special” at the time but it was indeed just that. Maybe “Unique” is a better choice of words. In a match that started with a pushup contest between Beefcake Charlie and Jesse Godderz, The Beefy one was able to outsmart Godderz who attempted to drop an elbow on a “push-upping Beefcake” in which to my surprise, I don’t think I’ve ever used “Outsmart” and “Beefcake Charlie” in the same sentence. The Bromans got quickly heated and left the ring when Robbie E called for a microphone to attempt to challenge the Males in a different way. Robbie challenged The Aesthetic males to the very first ever, footrace around the entire arena. Rules were simple; run around the entire recreation center and slide into the ring to act as a “finish line” of sorts. David Adams counted to 3, and there took off the Bromans in a sprint around the arena as The Aesthetic Males quickly realized that the finish line was the ring in which they were standing (and recovering from a quick cheap shot by the Bromans) about 6 feet from it, so for the second time in this match, The Aesthetic Males outsmarted the Bromans by quickly and simply sliding back into the ring declaring themselves the winners! The Bromans filled with even more frustration now, slid back into the ring to try an attempt to beat the males in an actual WRESTLING match but for the trifecta were outsmarted and defeated via 3 way school boy roll up!

Your Winners (Practically 3 times over): THE AESTHETIC MALES.. The Bromans were then recipients of “The Clap”

Match 7: 6 Way Scramble (Habib, Sonjay Dutt, Chris Payne, Kip Stevens, Nikos Rikos, Giant Leather)

On paper, yes, you’re reading this correctly as we have 6 of the most polar opposite styles of wrestlers in this thing so right away you couldn’t pick out a winner! There was A LOT of action in this one as always these 6-way matches seem to carry with its label. Chris Payne showed a new side of aggression as he was all business in each and every punch thrown. We saw Giant Leather attempt to just bully the 5 others but the numbers game quickly removed that as a factor. The obvious scene is that we would see Habib either launch himself or be launched onto 3-4 competitors and we saw just that. How this guy continues to survive these crazy matches are beyond me! Sonjay proved to the crowd rather quickly that he had the most experience in the match and it showed based on his strategic spots chosen to try and score himself the victory. However, in a roundabout “underdog” of this match, Nikos Rikos proved the entire way that he could hang with the best of them (Last month in late September he went toe to toe with Dan Maff and showed that he belonged in the spotlight that he’s in). Nikkos was able to outlast all 5 and score a shocking victory to the surprise of many but not myself knowing that Nikkos is on the rise!

Your Winner by Pinfall: (With Tears in his eyes): Nikos Rikos

MAIN EVENT: WrestlePro Tag Team Championship Match: The Heavenly Bodies © vs Ryback & Pat Buck

WrestlePro was rolling along and picking up steam match by match and it all lead up to this. We knew was time it was. It was, FEEDING TIME. The Bodies came out with their manager Shining Edward Jackson with complete confidence! They had the momentum going into this match and knew that this would be the first time Ryback had seen any in-ring action since leaving the WWE and not only that, but also Ryback’s first time tagging with long time best friend, and owner of WrestlePro Pat Buck. As big of a force that Ryback is; the odds definitely had the Bodies as the favorite of this match based solely off of experience as a team together! The match, as expected started off hard hitting with the most intensity I’ve ever seen out of the Bodies. Justin and Dustin knew that in order to retain tonight, they needed to bring out every ounce of energy they had. Surprisingly enough, The Bodies at one point were in firm control of the match and had both Ryback and Pat Buck down on the mat and applied a lot of damage where needed! A few near falls here and there had the Cresskill crowd thinking that the champs weren’t playing any games and would pick up the victory. Towards the end of this match, we saw Ryback and Buck finally start to gel as a cohesive unit and had the champs reeling. With a massive hanging vertical suplex (which by the crowd count lasted close to 20 seconds), Shining Edward Jackson finally offered his services by pulling out senior official Kevin Keenan just before counting to 3 which would have crowned new champions. Pat Buck quickly realized what had transpired and chased Edward Jackson to the back however; leaving Ryback vulnerable for the Bodies to hit the “Pearly Gates” on the 281 pounder! Just when we again thought we had seen the tag champs retain, Buck saved Ryback from the 3 count and then took himself out of the ring with a massive clothesline to Dustin leaving Justin in the ring one on one with Ryback. Justin, showing his arrogance started to chant “Feed Me More!” winding up a clothesline but was quickly met with a “meat hook” clothesline of Ryback’s own into the ever so familiar and devastating “Shell Shock!” for the 1…2…3! WE HAVE NEW WRESTLEPRO TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!

Your Winners by Pinfall AND NEW WrestlePro Tag Team Champions: Ryback and Pat Buck
