Hello once again CPW Galaxy, Frankie Summers reporting with a rundown of the NextGen show Ready or Not, brought to you by Hakimpur Cash and Carry and hosted at the Henley Green Community centre.
was another great show that carried on the events going on for a
while now. We opened the show with myself coming out to address the
audience and to perform Sweet Caroline as is tradition on all of our
shows. I had some help with me this time as Niall Fairchild came out
to assist with the performance, and he announced he will be returning
to CPW and will be back for his first match at New Blood. He’s issued
an open challenge to whoever wants to wrestle him. Personally I will
be turning down that challenge as I’m sure management have someone
else for me to face, or someone who would request to face me, and as
I’m in the public eye a lot, that could be one of many people.
of note, some of these will not be as detailed as I wasn’t in a
position to take down notes. If you want to see the matches if you
missed them, or want to see them again, join the CPW Patreon page and
you can watch the footage On Demand. Also due to asking someone else
to keep watch while I was away to give me a brief idea of what
happened, all of my match notes seem to be out of order, so apologies
if I get some of the matches mixed up here.
introduced Dominic Dewinter came out to address the crowd and made a
few announcements regarding upcoming shows and events and a rundown
of what would be happening later in the show. Then handed the show
over to myself to make the introduction for the first match.
decided to take a more simplified form for the blog from now on as
people were complaining about information being incorrect, so I’ll
just give a breakdown of circumstances surrounding the match and who
won from now on. This will reduce the chances of misinformation. My
main issue is that I have to write down my own play by play and watch
at the same time, so sometimes I’ll miss things because I can’t write
legibly and watch at the same time. It’s tricky even with people
helping. So I hope you enjoy this new format.
opened up Ready or Not with a non title match between Stevie W and
CPW Godiva Champion Imperial Dragon. We’ve not seen Stevie in a while
and it’s fair to say the CPW Galaxy has missed him. He and the Dragon
are no strangers to eachother, they have wrestled before and Stevie
came out on top. However, this was before Dragon showed this savage
mean streak that won him the Godiva Championship in the first place
tried to get the early psychological advantage by insulting and
taunting Stevie, even gnawing away at him in the corner, the
intimidation didn’t work and Stevie fought back locking in a
headlock. Dragon tried to counter and hip toss Stevie over after a
whip off, but Stevie caught Dragon in a hip toss. Dragon hit one of
those savage corner chops that we know him for, and everyone in CPW
fears. After getting some advantage, Stevie fought back but cut him
off with a slam, then later a backbreaker. No matter what high impact
move Dragon came up with Stevie kept fighting back, and when he
seemed to be nearing the win, Dragon picked up that damned Kendo
stick and whacked Stevie with in and got himself disqualified.
I don’t know why Dragon would do this as his title wasn’t on the line
and he had nothing to gain from it. I guess he’d sooner leave on his
own terms with a DQ than face defeat. The thing is, while he has that
stick and his bag of tricks, he will have that title for a long time.
He assaulted Stevie after the match, hitting him with a Tombstone
Piledriver and multiple times with the stick. In the end, Dale and I
tried to help Stevie up. We got him to his feet, but he angrily shook
us off and hobbled out of the ring. I don’t think it’s over between
these two, I really don’t, but where Dragon is involved it can only
get uglier. I interviewed Dragon backstage afterwards where I decried
his actions as deplorable and he made his intentions very clear. The
full interview is on the CPW Facebook page
was the first of 2 Debuts in CPW. ‘Sugar’ Jimmy Vice against Anthony
seems to have some respect from the fans after his matinee
performance against Will Starr back at the Free Show, even if he is
still a bad guy, and he likes to show this off with uzi like
repetition. Appropriately enough that is. ‘Sugar’ Jimmy Vice however
is brand new to CPW, he reminds me a lot of someone else on the
wrestling scene, albeit a more family friendly and more amicable
version. I was surprised he didn’t have a certain song as his
entrance music, but I found out that’s because someone else uses
gave the crowd lollies as he went around the audience. If it was an
attempt to sweeten them towards him I don’t think he really needed
it. The crowd seemed to take a shine to him pretty much instantly.
Mafia attacked Vice on the outside which got him an early but cheap
in the ring Jimmy fought back and hit a big body slam, before pulling
Mafia up and attempting to finish it quick with the Sugar Bomb. Mafia
slipped out and feigned a big move, but just slammed Jimmy instead.
Then he took him down and got a 2 count. Mafia took advantage with
his smashmouth offence. Feigning another move and slapping again,
before hitting the kick between the shoulder blades. Another 2 count.
Jimmy got the advantage after a withstanding a whip exchange and
dropkick. He dodged one kick and countered with a Famouser. It didn’t
last long as Mafia rolled out, then got to the top and leaped with a
Missile Dropkick. Mafia took control once again but Jimmy kept
came to a head when on the second attempt, Jimmy hit the Sugar Bomb,
then the Slice n Dice
is his finisher, but Mafia kicked out. He went for another one, but
Mafia slipped out and hit the backstabber, followed by his roll
through dropkick before getting the pin for 3. Mafia wins.
was a very exciting match and a great debut for Jimmy Vice. I hope we
see him back again some time as the fans took a real shine to him,
his moves were impressive and crisp in the ring, and he was a great
match up for Mafia. I got an interview with him back stage, and
despite the sugar he is an advocate for good mouth hygiene as well,
that’s on the CPW Facebook page, please give it a watch under the
was another match that was highly anticipated was the women’s match
as Nadia Sapphire took on the returning Shauna Shay. Nadia had been
gone from CPW for a while, and is still down in history as the first
ever CPW Women’s champion. A belt with great prestige and by some
fantastic women over the years, with the likes of Lana Austin, Lizzy
Styles, Athena Furie, Natalie Wild and numerous others, now currently
held by Victoria Adams. Shauna, in her last appearance fought
Victoria for that belt in an unsuccessful attempt, but she fought
valiantly and in her last interview with me, she said she would be
back. Now here she is with her chance to win the new Women’s Lineal
championship and the Queen of the Galaxy Tournament.
instance here as Nadia was coming out she was carrying her faithful
mirror, checking herself out in it and enjoying how she looks, a
little self-absorbed but you have to praise someone to have that much
confidence in themselves. Of course that mirror is her treasure and
it was passed to me.
was tasked with protecting it before handing it to Eightball and
Skinner at the sound booth. Of course I took the time to check my
reflection, make sure that I still looked presentable, which annoyed
Nadia immensely. I must say though Nadia, it is a very good mirror
and I can see why you use it. The weight is fine, you keep it clean
and it has magnifiers on the back. Even I looked presentable in it,
making me feel like Prince John in Disney’s Robin Hood.
was an even match but Shauna seemed to have the advantage for a good
part of the match, showing that in her time away she has been
training hard and getting tougher, faster and even better in terms of
her technical skills. She showed that she is a great all rounder once
again with takedowns and quick wear down moves that took Nadia by
surprise. Of course Nadia fought back with her roughneck tactics,
using her power advantage to overwhelm Shauna throughout.
big, shocking moment and turning point came during this moment where
both women were down. None other than Lucia Lee came down to the ring
and jumped onto the ring apron with unknown intentions. She was still
angry at having lost to Nadia at Superstars the week before, and it
was enough of a distraction for Shauna to take Nadia down and get the
3 count. Lucia jumped in the ring and hugged Shauna and celebrated
with her as the disgruntled Nadia slinked off. Not before grabbing
her mirror and yelling at Eightball and Skinner again.
then called for the microphone which I gave to her and she gave the
big announcement that the person who was given the place on the main
roster was her and she was staking her claim to become the first CPW
Lineal Women’s champion and Queen of the CPW Galaxy. She will face
Luna Rox her main roster debut in the Last of the Quarter Final
rounds. Then we will have the final four and the set up to find out
who the Queen of The Galaxy is in CPW.
was our first half main event and it was a special attraction match
as CPW Unified Champion Will Starr took on the returning Jay J
Roberts of the House of Beards tag team. Jay J is the bigger of the
two beards and he came here to represent his home nation of Wales and
to prove the tagging isn’t everything he’s about. He’s also an
accomplished Singles Wrestler and wanted to prove it in a non-title
match against Will Starr. Will is never one to turn down a challenge.
He has wrestled all over the Midlands and has taken on opponents way
bigger than him numerous times, not just Beast and Mr Richards. He
will always have an answer for what most will throw at him.
J came out and almost immediately the crowd got on his case,
insulting his heritage with a chant of Sheep. Of course Jay J had an
answer for them but it did get under his skin a little bit.
Especially when the crowd you’re performing in front of used to
the end Will got the 3 count and the win over the big Welshman, but
only just as he kicked out seemingly on the 3, but was it a 2.99
count or a 3? I was in the back interviewing Will about the match
after it happened and Jay J stormed into the interview and got into
Will’s face, saying that the officiating of the match was poor and
a disgrace and that he should be granted another chance. Also, Will
should put both halves of the Unified championship on the line, if he
was man enough. Will accepted after not much convincing, but I feel
that to negate the issue and to prevent any further issues like this,
perhaps some kind of extra enforcement may be needed. Be it a guest
ref, a ref on the outside or even a nominated party from each side.
However that last one may be open to abuse.
we got the second half where I conducted some interviews, all of
which are available on the CPW Facebook Page. Shauna, Lucia Lee,
Jimmy Vice, Fifi, Steve and Morris all got in the ring for photos at
opened up the second half with James Cross taking on Fifi. This came
about about James got bloodied at the hands of Fifi at Elimination.
Also that he was revived with mouth to mouth CPR that he did not
appreciate. So this was war regardless.
immediately opened the match up by kissing James, which made him bail
in disgust. Fifi chased but got cut off, James attacked outside and
took advantage before rolling Fifi in for a 2 count. He hit a German
suplex and got another 2. Fifi fought back with the gut kick, but got
cut off with a clothesline that floored Fifi. I know this too well,
James hits like a truck when he gets you with that clothesline. It
can take almost anyone out. It got him another 2 count, he carried on
with a splash in the corner, and a fisherman’s release and still just
getting a 2. Fifi fought back and came back with a barrage of hits of
his own, which culminated in the stinkface in the corner. Followed by
a Fifi Factor attempt that James bailed on. He managed to get a mule
kick in while the ref had his attention diverted. Fifi was put in the
Crossface, but managed to get to the ropes to break it. While James
could smell victory, he went for Fifi once more, but a surprise roll
up got Fifi a hard fought win.
performance here by the winner of the Elimination rumble, showing his
resourcefulness once again. James Cross goes home embittered and
annoyed, but will have his sights set on something else soon I’m
was another CPW debut as Wild one Casey Wild took on the Iron Serb.
Little was known about Wild coming in, but we knew he was from Wales
and was looking to scope out some new competition in a new area. He
got just that here, as the Balkan Nightmare, the Iron Serb was more
than willing to take his challenge. Casey came out in bright glowing
neons that really seemed to light the crowd up. It was very enjoyable
even from where I was standing.
seemed more agitated than normal this time, he decided to get in my
face as is tradition now. I just let him get on with it these days. I
know his quarrel is with his opponent. I don’t know if this was the
clever thing to do as to open up, Wild, the far smaller of the two
men decided to open up with a brawl, which Serb got advantage of, and
after missing one charge, hit another and took out Wild quickly,
before yelling at the crowd. He took the lead, stomping and hammering
on Wild, before following it up with an avalanche in the corner that
got him a 2. At this point he took control with more strikes, slams
and ground work, including a devastating suplex. Wild tried to fight
back but got caught with a bearhug. The hand count reached 2, and
Wild fired back with a series of running aerial kicks, taking Serb
down, hitting a Cannonball and getting a 2. Sensing victory, Wild
went to the top, and Serb caught and crotched him. He attempted a
Superplex, but Wild used his head literally and headbutted Serb
taking him off the buckle, and in a burst of desperation hit the
cross body block from the top for 3.
fans raised the roof for the victorious Casey as he joined the fans
for a dance to his entrance theme. Serb sat in the ring, seething
with rage and frustration for being beaten by a debutee. I asked him
politely to leave but he wouldn’t, but the crowd pretty much booed
him out of the building with their usual choice chants that the give
the Serb. I decided to stay well out of his way, even if we did have
a show to do.
was a match I didn’t see much of as I was doing interviews in the
back. A tag team match as Morris and George teamed up against Bashby
and the returning Drake Wynter. Bashby said that his partner was
supposed to be Shaun Ruben, but he decided that there needed to be a
change, with someone bigger and stronger and more dangerous, and
that’s why Drake was there. Morris and George came out to take them
on, and I had to go to the back and as a result missed this one.
what I’ve heard it was close and back and forth and a great show the
ability of all 4 of these young men. It ended with Drake getting the
pin over Morris showing that Bashby’s new heavy was a wise choice. It
got him what he wanted for now. But what about the future? Bashby has
made a ton of enemies in CPW, and even with a show of respect to
myself after Superstars, Bashby is back to show that he’s back in
business and he’s packing heat this time. Only time will tell what
use he will put him to. It harkens back to the old days of him
ordering around someone bigger than him to do his dirty work. I think
the entire New Blood division needs to be on guard for this
we had the main event as the Deep South, the team of Big Eli and Alex
Conners took on the team of The Fallen. New Blood champion Leyton
Simms and Tommbie.
we got to the main event of the evening between The Fallen, the team
of New Blood Champion Leyton Simms and Nextgen
Wrestling Champion Tommbie as they take on the team of the Deep
South, Alex and Eli Conners.
Fallen were the most successful tag team in CPW history until the MMS
came along and were also one of the most Dangerous and still are.
When you have Tommbie who is a mix of power, intensity, speed and
endurance, and the dogged determination and grit of Leyton Simms,
that’s a dangerous combination. However they’ve got the Deep
South to deal with.
brothers the Conners have been a team for a long time, even in their
native Kentucky, many years ago they got their start watching old
territory wrestling on their huge 14” monochrome TV and wrestling
at county fairs. They were eventually banned from them for destroying
one too many chilli stands. Moving to modern day, they have honed
their skills and have a tag team continuity that you just don’t see
anymore. So many tag team tandem moves, mainly ending with Alex’s
knee going into his opponents head.
Deep South entered first much to the disgust of the crowd and and
requested that the crowd please rise for the US National Anthem. They
stood proud as always and surprisingly The Fallen came out and
interrupted proceedings. The Deep South scattered and Tommbie pressed
Simms above his head and launched him at both Conners Bros, taking
them both out. Alex got back into the ring where Tommbie was waiting
for him taking him down with an arm wrench, into the arm lock, but
Alex escaped to the corner to tag out to Eli. Tommbie tagged in
Leyton and they went at it, locking up. On a couple of exchanges,
Leyton got the better of it and tagged Tommbie who got to work on Eli
with strikes, a neckbreaker and tagging in Leyton to do his leaping
elbow drop over the ropes. Leyton tagged out again and Tommbie did
Old School, walking the ropes before hitting a double axe from the
top. Simms tagged in again, then powerbombed onto Eli before working
on him more with uppercuts. Eli caught Leyton just enough to tag in
Alex who was well rested at this point charged in and took out Simms
with the knee. Then the double teams begin. With the Inverted atomic
drop into the knee strike. Eli was legal here and mocked Leyton at
this point, before planting his head into the buckle. Alex tagged
back in who hit the pumphandle backbreaker, then tagged Eli in again.
Another double team, slingshotting Leyton into the knee of Alex.
Sensing the end, he stomped Leyton a bit more and called for the big
countered with a double axe handle and tried to break free to tag.
Alex pulled Tommbie off the apron and attacked him on the outside.
Eli maintained control, stomping on Simms, and Alex joined him again.
Taking it in turned, first with a running cross body from Eli, and a
senton splash from Alex. Despite all this, Simms kept fighting. Alex
caught a kick and held Leyton up in a stall suplex and planted him on
the knee again. Alex picked Leyton up again and both hit the ropes
and charged at eachother, hitting a cross body at the same time,
winding eachother. This gave enough time and space for Leyton to make
the tag to Tommbie who came in blazing. Taking down Alex before
picking him up and hitting the Snake Eyes in the corner. Leyton went
to the top as Tommbie set Alex up as Leyton hit the Team 3D diving
headbutt, hitting him right below the belt. Leyton fought Eli to the
outside as Tommbie was left alone with his arch rival, Alex Conners
in the centre of the ring.
went for the Occult Assault on Alex who slipped out of it and said
no. In anger and wanting to drive something’s head into the canvas,
Tommbie set his sights on something. In the corner. Her Ladyship, the
chicken! So in front of Alex, Tommbie hoisted up the chicken in an
amazing feat of strength and drove her head first into the mat and
knocking her clean out. Alex was distraught by this. He fell to his
knees and begged Dale to help. Dale then tried to administer CPR to
this, it came to a head with Leyton Simms being handcuffed to the top
rope in the corner. Tommbie was left at the mercy of the Deep South
who disposed of him with a Double Go to Sleep, and got the win while
Leyton was yelling for help the whole time. After the match ended, 3
of us including myself tried to break the cuffs off him but they were
stuck fast. Then the Iron Serb came out and gave Leyton a massive
beating with the flag pole for a good few minutes. Myself and Dale
were screaming at Serb to stop, but it wasn’t working. He was a man
possessed and wanted to put the man who humiliated him multiple times
on the shelf. He left after a while and eventually we broke the cuffs
off and Leyton was free, but at what cost? I held the flowers under
Leyton’s nose to try and revive him. Thankfully it worked and we
managed to help him to his feet, but seething with rage Leyton went
straight for management and said he would put that New Blood title on
the line against Serb, and it would be at Adrenaline.
full announcement is on the CPW Facebook page. The match has been
set. It’s going to be a Belgrade Brawl match, which is our code for
a street fight. It’s going to be brutal and bloody and no amount of
therapy or flowers have been able to stop the monster that lives
inside Leyton’s conscience. Maybe this will be the way to get rid
of it once and for all. Weapons and brutality, as 2 men who hate each
other try to destroy each other.
isn’t just about the title, it’s about revenge and I wait eagerly
for what will happen in this match. It won’t be pretty, and when we
advise you to stay in your seats for this one, we will mean it. I say
this about every match on the show as the theme here is hardcore
matches. There will be chairs, tables, kendo sticks and probably some
other weapons that will shock us all. They may be blood, but most of
all, there will be chaos and brutality as these men and women beat
eachother senseless. Titles will be on the line, as will honour and
Once again another CPW show ends in Chaos and destruction, but there is far more to come when we see you at Adrenaline!
