think it’s fair to say that if you look back on even just the past
3 months, the landscape of CPW was far different from what we have
now. I told you all before that it all seemed a little too peaceful.
We had slain the Beast. We had seen the most extreme match up in
recent CPW History with the highest stakes imaginable. We saw Mr
Richards pass the torch to the hero of the CPW Galaxy, Will Starr.
Dominic Dewinter whispered something into the ear of Will not long
after the match, and people wondered what he said. It could have been
a threat, it could have been something personal. But now it seems to
all be coming to a head.
After the Genesis 6 made themselves known at New Blood, they have done nothing but wreak havoc on the CPW roster. I realised that I never gave them a proper role call last time, but now with their manager Dominic Dewinter on their side, I do seem to be giving them what they as a group want by giving them this attention, but the truth must be told and it must be brought up first. Before the usual rundown.
is the man I consider the real leader. Kevin Isaac. The technician. A
man who started coming to training one day who took a long time out
of wrestling, but came back to chase his dream of becoming a
champion. He has come back and after an unsuccessful run being the
sportsmanly and talented mat technician he is, the straw that broke
the camel’s back was when he was thrown out of Elimination in the
fastest time of anyone in the match, which caused a small section of
the fans to start laughing at him. This changed something in Kevin,
and it turned him bad, when drawn in by the bag of 30 silver coins.
So driven by greed, he set his sights on Will Starr and his CPW
Championships. Would he walk away with one and accomplish part of his
on the list we have Kieran Young. The seasoned veteran. A former CPW
Champion who was a fan favourite for a long time, and has made on/off
appearances in CPW over the past year, but never on a consistent
basis. Why he’s joined the G6 I cannot figure out, and he’s been
quiet about it, but I’m sure he will inform us when the moment is
right. He’s hoping to regain some former glory he once had and is
using the number strategy to make it happen. The man is a good enough
wrestler to do very well alone, so why has he chosen this route?
the speedy trickster of the group, is another turncoat who was the
plucky underdog of CPW, showing regardless of his small frame and
young age, he is tough and can rumble with the best of them, as was
proven with multiple wins over Bashby, including his debut where he
won the Nextgen Academy title, along with a short run as Nextgen
Champion after a trilogy of matches with Alex Conners. Despite this,
George felt bitter as he still wasn’t the young wrestler in the
hearts of the CPW Galaxy. Despite all of his achievements and his
great match record, in singles and in tag wrestling, he feels angry
that the fans still chant for Morris, as they wanted Morris to come
out and save Will from the G6. This lead to the match with Morris at
this show, in a special attraction Bullrope match. No pins or
submissions, no countouts or DQ. The only way to win is to tap all 4
corner pads in succession. Would the leader of the NBO Warriors
overcome the odds, or would the G6 make their mark?
Cross is the heavy of the team, but is also a classic victim of
little man syndrome. He was given a dream chance when he first came
in and wrestled Will Starr in the main event of the Superstars 1 show
back in November. He did quite well against him until Will turned the
tables on him in spectacular fashion. Since then he has been on a one
man redemption crusade. Early attempts were unsuccessful, racking up
multiple losses in a row, until Superstars 2 where he beat Dr Gage by
Submission and gained a title shot at the New Blood championship.
Since then it’s been kind of quiet for him, but joining up with a
group of disgruntled newcomers seemed like a fast way to success, but
let’s just see what he makes of it.
we have the former ring hand employed as the assailant of the group.
Dingo. The Australian Nightmare. He trained in the Outback and has
experience from dealing with deadly creatures as well as foes in the
ring. He took some time out, but has come to CPW to make it his base
of operation. Little is known about him, but so far he has made in
impact with that devastating spear that he levelled Will Starr with
and will continue to do so as time goes by. He seems to have
potential, watch out for this guy.
we have Ryan Lance is the man I’m referring to as the Shooter from
now on as he has long legs that give powerful kicks, as well as short
sharp offense in tight weardown hold and quick technical moves. With
sniper like precision, you can be taken down by him at a seconds
notice. He’s also the shooter because he likes to run his mouth. He’s
only had one match which was a great effort against Leyton Simms
which nearly won him the New Blood championship on his first time
out, but as I’ve commented before, his attitude is what holds him
back. He’s cocky, arrogant and smug, but doesn’t care what you
special mention goes to We all know who Dominic Dewinter is. The
turncoat COO of CPW. Formerly a man of the CPW Galaxy, the man who
gave the people what they wanted. I would say that he is the leader
of their group, but he is more their guide, the overseer. While not
directly involved with the action in terms of in ring competing, he’s
not above throwing in a cheap shot now. We’ve seen him take this
route before and we got him off it in the past. But can we do it
again with this level of firepower?
now after that little explanation it’s time to get onto the show.

was the master of ceremonies for this event, coming off feeling
victorious after my title win over Imperial Dragon, where I got a
round of applause from the CPW Galaxy as I came out with my belt for
all to see. We opened up with the usual run down of sponsor, match
card, vocal warm up and Sweet Caroline. 8 matches were signed for
this show, this is CPW Survive.
opened up with an open challenge match for the Golden Ticket
Briefcase. Sir Isaac Quentin III came out and laid down the briefcase
and said that there was no one in the back that had the guts to face
him. So he called whoever was brave enough to come out. Seemingly no
one wanted to, and I wasn’t going to do it, I had a show to
announce. Then to the surprise of everyone,coming
out through the crowd was his opponent. None other than the king of
Superkicks himself, Bashby.
told Bashby that he didn’t need his help this time, as he had it
all under control. This was before Bashby snatched the microphone
from Isaac and told him that he didn’t want to help him. He wanted
that briefcase, and was willing to go through Isaac to get it. This
was an unexpected turn of events as Bashby has been known as a bad
guy for ages. The wrestler who got under everyone’s feet, who it
was satisfying to see get his comeuppance. But he seems to have
turned a new leaf fighting against Isaac to get that briefcase off
match was an unexpected surprise for the fans and they really got
behind Bashby, and why not? He has been a hard working mainstay in
CPW for a while now. Former 2 time Academy champion. Has wrestled
with people at all levels of experience up and down the roster in
singles and tag. He’s even wrestled me. This match was hard hitting
and brutal as both of these guys favour fast strikes. Both run all
round styles but Bashby was giving up a lot of size and had to make
up for it with speed.
kept cutting Bashby off with his power and trickiness and walloped
Bashby all over the ring, but he never gave up. Bashby went for the
superkick and Isaac ducked under it. After a quick exchange Isaac got
the better of the situation and pulled up Bashby and smashed him with
the Lungblower to get the 3 count.
won once again and keeps up this streak. He then pulled Bashby up and
hit him with the move again, while yelling at me and Dale. He
snatched the briefcase and stormed to the back in triumph. Dale and I
assisted Bashby in getting out of the ring. He slipped from our grip
and ended up flopping to the floor. Considering his small size he’s
tricky to hold up. We managed to get him to the back and they made
sure Isaac was away from him while the EMTs checked him over.
rampage knows no bounds, and it seems to be that he is picking off
threats as they come along. Let’s see where that takes it in
we had an anticipated match between 2 CPW stars we don’t see that
often anymore. The last Triple Threat champion, the Roadman Anthony
Mafia taking on Pimpin’ Morgan Black. We’ve seen Mafia lately in
very high profile matches including a fantastic match with Will Starr
for the CPW Championship. Morgan hasn’t been a regular on CPW shows
since the beginning of last year but it’s always great seeing him
back. Last time we saw him he was tagging up with Jake Casanova as
team Casalicious. On paper this was a fantastic match as both men are
it opened up with Anthony calling out Morgan, trying to get the fans
to agree with him that Morgan is a wasteman. This didn’t work as
the CPW Galaxy agreed with Morgan that it’s in fact Mafia who is
the wasteman. This wasn’t taken well.
match was very back and forth with a perfect balance of athletic and
power based moves from Mafia and a mix of technical, power and
surprising agility from Morgan. Mafia won the match after an
impressive aerial display which left Morgan dazed. I went up to him
to ask if he needed the EMT, but he stayed strong and said no and
left to an impressive ovation by the crowd.
we had the match I was looking forward to with high anticipation and
some slight concern considering how it came about. The ‘Natural’
Niall Fairchild taking on former CPW Godiva Champion, the Imperial
Dragon. A big match between two big and dangerous men. Dragon
focusing on strikes and intensity, while Niall focuses on power and
technical skill. I’m glad I wasn’t inbetween these two.
must point out the crowd reaction to Dragon when he came out. This
just annoyed him more and probably put him in a mind set to hurt
Niall and in turn myself more. The variety of chants made me struggle
to stay neutral, such as “Frankie took your title” and “Where’s
your title gone?” really made my day.
tried to make it about me as he throttled me in the corner, insulting
me over his loss at New Blood. I didn’t fight back as I didn’t
want Niall to get disqualified, but I shoved him back when he did it
the second time, right into a forearm by Niall. I hopped out and the
match ensued. Dragon, enraged was all over Niall. Heavy strikes and
controlled pushing to corners with a mix of power moves to take out
body parts to weaken Niall’s best asset. His amazing strength.
These two went hold for hold and counter for counter with each other
the whole match. Dragon used his kicks and chops. The roll over
senton from the apron, the armbreaker, and a moonsault. All of his
all round assault was thrown in here to punish the Natural as much as
possible. Niall kept in with it however despite the arm injury, and
tried to put Dragon away with the Rainmaker clothesline, but Dragon
countered twice and hit him that that devastating Black Mass kick.
was in trouble so off instinct I jumped on the apron and got the
attention of Dragon to buy Niall some time. I owed Niall one for
saving me from Isaac Quentin III in Elimination from possibly having
my arm broken and wanted to show Dragon that I’m not going to be
pushed around because he couldn’t take a loss. Dragon went for me
but I dropped off the apron before he spat on me which irritated me,
and as he was yelling at me, Niall got to his feet and pushed Dragon
to the corner. Dragon hopped over Niall and attempted a victory roll
but Niall kept his balance and kneeled down and pinned Dragon for 3.
We jumped into the ring to celebrate, but much to the displeasure of
Dragon. We faced off and yelled at each other as I defiantly held the
belt up at him. Eventually Dragon left with the crowd mocking him.
Niall and I celebrated once more in the ring. It’s good to have
people who have your back in this game.
The first half ended with what was the dream match of the show as CPW Women’s champion Chantal Jordan took on former 4 time CPW Women’s champion, and current defiant wrestling champion Lizzy Styles. The past and the future butting heads in the present day. This match came about as CPW management had been wanting to bring back Lizzy for a long time as the fans had been asking for her for a while. Not being one to disappoint, she found a gap in her busy schedule to make the long trip down to join us one more time. Chantal has been showing why she is known as the baddest girl on the planet by taking on all comers and using her brutal aggression to chop and kick down anyone who opposes her. This match didn’t last long but it was as impactful and as hard hitting as you would come to expect. It was a mix of technical, striking and power in the space of a few minutes that just flew by. In a big surprise, the plucky young up and comer Chantal managed to snatch the victory out of the clutches of Lizzy. It just goes to show how far Chantal has come in this time. Lizzy still continues to have great success elsewhere but it just wasn’t her night to make her number of championship reigns that hand filling five. Next we had the fan access where Lizzy stayed in the ring and was joined by Lucia Lee and a few of the other CPW stars.
the break we opened up with my most anticipated match of the night.
The Bull Rope match between Morris of the NBO Warriors and the
arrogant upstart of the G6, George. This came about because of the
reason George joined the G6 in the first place. Jealousy. George said
that despite everything he has done in CPW, the crowd always chanted
for Morris and wanted Morris more. I think I have a reason for why
this is, George. Your skill has carried you to right near the top of
CPW in your rookie year. You’ve breezed through most of your
opponents, winning championships and taking out massive competition
along the way. You’ve only been beaten a couple of times in your CPW
tenure, but with Morris it’s a different story, as his had that
infamous losing streak that got shattered after pinning Shaun Ruben
at History 5. You’ve both seen the top, but had way different
journeys to get there. Also, I don’t appreciate you stealing my
championship like that man, poor show.
bull rope match has no rules apart from you need to tap all 4 top
turnbuckle pads in succession and without interruption. This is one
that for the spectacle I highly recommend you just watch on demand.
It was a great display between two of the best that the academy has
ever produced. Power vs Speed and of course both being creative with
the offence with the rope. Morris seemed to have the match well in
hand after planting George and going for the corners, but of course,
Dingo and Lance had to interfere. While Lance distracted Morris,
Dingo set up for the spear and levelled Morris with it, all legal as
the match was a No DQ. They dragged the prone George around the ring
to tap all 4 pads and win the match in a flagrant display of foul
play. I can’t say it was cheating because it’s not cheating when
there’s no rules. This was a display of power once more by this
devilish group. This numbers game needs to be negated somehow.
was the long awaited non-title Nextgen match between Nextgen
champion, the Taker of Souls, Tommbie against Russell Hardwood.
Russell has been making an exclamation as loud as that surf shirt
that he wears. He and Chantal Jordan beat the Deep South at New
Blood. Russell does seem as loved as Fifi, and his entrance is just
as long it seems. He’s also mastered the art of the long and
elaborate entrance. However this one had a twist. He came out
applying baby oil to his skin before getting in the ring. I assume to
deflect strikes, but he ended up putting so much on his hands that
he had to wipe it off somewhere, so he chose my beard. To really add
to this he gave me a kiss as well. How European. Tommbie came out
with a renewed sense of vigour after his conquest over the Deep South
in his last challenge, but now he has a completely different kind of
challenge in Russell. Wily and unpredictable with a new set of moves
as evidenced by the tag team match.
match was a lot more evenly matched than you may think. I know that
Russell even in his past gimmick has come up short against some stiff
competition, but he has also overcome some stiff competition too,
even beating international star Robbie E for the CPW Championship in
the past. It was a high class mix of technical skill, strikes and
power from both men. However the baby oil seemed to play a part as on
multiple occasions, Tommbie tried to pull off a heavy power move but
couldn’t get the grip to get Russell into the move, even an attempted
Occult Assault. It’s a questionable tactic but one that absolutely
worked as Russell Hardwood picked up a shock win, increasing his
momentum as we head towards History. What may be in store now? We
will have to see. Tommbie was upset and frustrated regarding this
circumstance, as he doesn’t like to be made a fool of, but the Taker
of Souls is still champion and has a date with destiny set for June
as he takes on Fifi, in whatever guise he arrives in.
was the 6 man tag team match as the team of the Deep South, Alex and
Eli Conners and cousin Harley Harris took on the team of Leyton
Simms, Dr Gage and the Golden Girl of CPW, Lucia Lee. Lucia has been
continuing to impress since her arrival on the main roster and Simms
and Gage have lost no momentum since this war with the Iron Serb. The
Deep South have been licking their wounds after being beaten a few
times in a row, but their thoughts don’t seem to have been with their
matches as much, they seem to have been on Her Ladyship who was
hospitalised and put in a coma by Tommbie. This on paper, was going
to be a great match either way.
evenly contested match with a combo of a power, technical and
scrapping. We saw a combo of everything here. It’s another one you
should watch on demand. We saw the tag team continuity of the Conners
Brothers which is amazing to behold no matter how many times you
watch it, love them or hate them. We saw more of what Harley can do
and how her experience and of course being part of the Conners Clan
has made her wily and unpredictable. We of course saw Leyton Simms
take a licking and keep on ticking as he always does. We saw the
power and strength of Dr Gage clash with that of Big Eli in a clash
I’ve been wanting to see. The real story here however was Lucia Lee.
She got the tag from Leyton that forced the Conners Brothers to clear
the ring and go one on one with Harley. Lucia dealt with her with
class and efficiency pulling out her staples that are fantastic to
watch every time. The best one was seemingly her new super team
finisher. The Super Starr Elbow off the top of Dr Gage’s shoulders.
Leaping about 7ft or more with the point of her elbow landing right
in the cruel heart of Harley Harris, which lead to Lucia and Team
Madness picking up the win. Teamwork can come from the oddest places
as we have seen here. Lucia continues to make waves in CPW, and her
success will surely be rewarded in future. Gage and Simms have gained
momentum back after Simms lost the belt to Iron Serb, but I know for
a fact that it will come to a head sooner than you may think.
we got onto the big one, as the leader of the G6 Kevin Isaac took on
Will Starr for the CPW Championship. Not the unified title, just the
Heavyweight belt. Which confuses me. I know that it may have been a
ranking issue but if you have a chance to go for all the gold you
can, you take it, even if you’re unsure of what you can do. Of course
I have a feeling I know why this was. More on that later.
was a show of technical skill through and through, because even if
you don’t like the guy, Kevin is a very accomplished wrestler with a
lot of in ring ability, training wherever he can, whenever he can.
Will, of course is pretty much Mr Wrestling and can grap with the
best of them. This was another one that you have to watch to fully
appreciate. The skill of both of these men is impeccable and it
really could have gone either way, but with the crowd behind Will,
they managed to keep him in it as he managed to pick up a hard fought
win over Kevin. However this wasn’t the end of it. Will was sat in
the corner after I announced him as the winner and gave him his
belts. Dominic Dewinter then came out with the G6. Will, who I was
next to told me to take his belts away so they couldn’t be in range
of the G6. We had a feeling we knew what the COO had planned. In a
follow on and a mad display of stroke from our power drunk boss, he
overruled my announcement and Dale’s decision. The match was to
restart and it was to be 4 on 1 with no holds barred. The beatdown
ensued but in true fight or flight response, Will swung wildly and
took out the G6 one by one and kept doing so until he was blindsided
by one, then the others got to work on his already beaten up form.
George and Lance held the prone Will up as Dingo speared him nearly
out of his boots. They dragged him to the centre and Kevin got the
pin, making him the new CPW Heavyweight Champion.
what world do we live in where actions like this are allowed to
stand? Just because the boss doesn’t like the fact his guy won he
throws a tantrum and puts the man he’s standing against under
impossible odds? I don’t buy that at all. The whole move is bull. I
know I’m speaking out against the man who is running things here, but
I have to in this case. If people don’t stand up against this regime
that Dewinter has with the G6, then they will take CPW out from under
our feet just like Marcel tried to last year. We have to unify
against this group of two-bit punks if we want to stand any chance
against them. I know I’ve got a massive target on me in having the
Godiva Championship, and it puts me in danger, but what you have to
understand is, good or bad, if you don’t stand with the G6, you’re in
danger as well, especially with the boss on their side. We must
prepare for war.
For now, this is Frankie Summers signing off, we shall see you at Destination History.
