SWWS Results from San Jose, CA - January 17th Jan 18, 2022 12:23:45 GMT
Post by Admin on Jan 18, 2022 12:23:45 GMT
Last night, we were at the Napredak Hall in San Jose! It was standing room only for our second show out in the beautiful area. Last time we were here, the Iron Hearts nearly captured the SWWS World Tag Team Championship from the Vilaro Legion. This time, they will be battling it out in a six man tag team conest! Donny Mason, Tammy Huynh, Lexi Gold, and Jimmy Johnson were available for the Meet and Greet. Merch was flying off the shelves, we nearly sold out of every single shirt we brought!
Onto the Show!!
Derek Trigg vs. Stormrider Dolfjin w/Amstel
This was a fun opening match. Trigg got on the microphone before the contest, and this is what he had to say.
"Of course we wouldn't be in San Jose without a couple of you idiots wearing the garbage of the San Jose Sharks.. I mean, come on. Look at this fat ass here. Just remember, when I'm done in this shithole, I'm heading back up to Los Angeles where a REAL team, the Kings lay waste to you guys every single year."
Dolfjin dominated the match early on, getting support of the audience at the expense of Trigg. Despite the match being in Dolfjin's favor, it was Trigg who managed to stop him in his tracks with a countered monkey flip into a stun gun. This was followed by Trigg's signature Pump Handle Faceplant for the victory in 5:02.
Following the contest, Trigg continued to trash the city, demanding some REAL competition to come out and face him. This brought out Mitchell Ryan of the Inevitable!!
Derek Trigg vs. Mitchell Ryan
I can't call this one a legit match as Trigg spent more time avoiding Ryan, but the Canadian powerhouse managed to catch him with a ring shattering spinebuster, followed by the 3% for the win in 1:14.
We'd like to think Trigg learned his lesson in San Jose, but he'll probably do this crap again.
Tag Team Contest
Tammy Huynh & Nila Rich vs. The Vegas Strip (Rachel Vegas & Ruby Garner)
Two newly formed teams at the House of Paine Academy were ready to show what they can do in San Jose last night. As always, Tammy Huynh was the star of the show, getting the crowd behind her with some hilarious antics in the ring. Vegas and Garner worked extremely well together, keeping newcomer Nila Rich at bay. Huynh got the hot tag, and managed to break through a few double team moves from Vegas and Garner. Once Rich was back in the ring, she delivered a snapping Hurricanrana on Garner, followed by the Shining Wizard from Huynh for the pinfall in 6:29.
We had a special on-screen promo from MYOJIN, apologizing for not being able to be there in San Jose. He had this to say.
"You guys know that there's nowhere else we'd rather be tonight. Mark your calendars though, March 21st.. We'll be back in San Jose, and you know I'll be there. Until then, The Shining Star says that they will be taking care of business on Blitzkrieg, especially when we beat Matthew Knox together. We got this."
Johnny Sykes vs. Gavin Paine
An interesting note from this contest was the appearance of Jun Nishioka in the corner of Johnny Sykes. Sykes was rocking his new tactical gear, but it didn't help early on when he was struggling to keep up with the high-octane offense of Paine. Sykes was able to recover just enough to bring Payne down with a hard powerbomb out of the ten punch salute. Paine managed to kick out of Sykes' Blue Thunder Neckbreaker, but ultimately fell short when Sykes delivered the M27 for the victory in 9:16.
It was unexplained as to what the affiliation between Nishioka and Sykes would be, but if it brings more victories, it might just bee what the doctor ordered for the Marine.
Chuck Funger w/Ted Hot vs. Noach Van Norden
Who doesn't love The Hot Fungers? They had the audience eating up everything that they brought during the entrance. Van Norden took advantage with a series of vicious kicks to the leg of Funger to bring him down to the mat. The Dutchman even caught Funger with hard hitting forearm strikes to the back of the head while Hot was willing on his best friend from outside the ring. Funger must have listened, because after that, it was all Chuck Funger. The crowd fired up with Funger hitting the Big Boot on a running Van Norden, followed by the Palm Springs to score the victory in 10:48!
Carli Dempsey vs. Lexi Gold
Not much is known about Dempsey outside of her efforts in the pacific northwest. She was in there with Lexi Gold, who has been riding high on momentum with her most recent victory on Paradigm. Dempsey targeted the leg of Gold early on, hitting her with a knee breaker followed by a half crab. Gold had the crowd behind her while she was trying to make the combeack, but Dempsey was able to stop her for the most part. Eventually, it was Gold who caught her with a shotgun dropkick into the corner, and followed up with the Golden Flare on Dempsey for the submission victory in 8:46
After the contest, Dempsey admitted her defeat to Gold. The two shook hands in the middle of the ring, allowing Gold to celebrate with the audience following her victory.
In another video, we have SWWS World Champion Ava. She thanks the city of San Jose for their continued support. Here's what Ava had to say.
"This a big month coming up for SWWS. We're walking into Blind Date, and to be honest with you... I have an idea. See, my entire plans for Valentine's Day is to go out to the ring and put on a show for everyone in Chicago, but... What if two of you in the audience were my dates? That's right, we're having a raffle tonight. The winner of the raffle gets an all-expenses paid trip to Chicago for an amazing night with, hopefully, still your SWWS World Champion. I can't wait to see you guys!"
Six Man Tag Team Contest
Andre Boone, Isaiah Andrews, and Pio Costa vs. The Michigan Invasion (Kolm Moross, Abteen Sky, and Ford Lyndon) w/Lord Cadieux
The crowd was hot all night, but something about Boone, Andrews, and Costa really had them going. They had a special Pre-Match introduction done by the voice of the San Jose Sharks, Mr. Danny Miller. Once the bell rang though, it was a highlight to see all six of these amazing prospects inside of the ring. Abteen Guy and Kolm Moross definitely brought their best high flying arsenal out, battling with Boone and Costa. Andrews and Lyndon had a great power showing, especially seeing Lyndon deliver a stalling side suplex to Zeke. Once the hot tag came to Boone, it was completely in favor of the Gateway veterans. Costa stunned the audience with a stunning shooting star press to the outside onto Moross and Lyndon. Cadieux tried to get involved, throwing his shoe at Boone, only to get knocked off the apron. This led to Boone and Andrews delivering Dipsy Doo, Dunkaroo to score the victory in 13:18 to lead us into intermission.
During intermission, the trio of Boone, Andrews, and Costa took selfies and signed autographs for the fans. Even Danny Miller got involved, signing autographs as well for the fans. Also, our merch table took a beating during intermission! We need more Matthew Knox shirts, he only provided 15 to us! Runa Olsen's X-Ray t-shirt also sold incredibly well during this.
Back from Intermission!!
Singles Match - Pavel's Eliminator Match
Ramesses w/Kimberly Chase, Mitchell Ryan, and Alandra vs. Jimmy Johnson
Coming right out of the gate, this match was wild! Ramesses wrestled as the de-facto heel during the early stages of the contest, showing off his athleticism while gaining an upperhand on Johnson. Johnson used some very unique offense in his technical game to even the odds. The two wound up coming to blows in the middle of the ring, leading to Johnson stunning Ramesses with a springboard moonsault that nobody expected him to do. It was time to end the match, Johnson looked for the KangaROO, but Ramesses caught him with a sudden Downward Dog! Seeing the opportunity, Ramesses collected himself and delivered the beautiful Platinum Press for the victory in 16:18.
As a result of his victory, Ramesses has moved onto the next round of Pavel's Eliminator.
Daniel Horror has a video for the fans in attendance. He had some ominous words for the fans.
"The story will never end. The world according to the Daredevil has only begun to surface in SWWS. Soon, what beckons all of you is the dark reality that Daniel Horror is coming to finish the job that so many others have already started. With a clean slate ahead of society, we will mold the world in my image."
Kind of creepy.
Six Man Tag Team Contest
The Iron Hearts (Andrej Jankovic, Guthrie Graupe, and Nikos Mantzios) vs. SWWS World Tag Team Champions The Vilaro Legion w/Marisol Vilaro and Adrian Drake w/Autumn Dusk
Right from the start, Vilaro told her men to stay out of the match until Drake managed to get an advantage. This took longer than one would expect as Drake struggled early on with the double teams from Graupe and Mantzios. The crowd nearly erupted when Jankovic got into the ring, leading to Drake eating a series of belly to belly suplexes. He stormed the Vilaro gates by throwing BOTH Lorenzo and Miguel into the ring, leading to a pier six brawl between the men inside of the ring. Amazingly enough, Drake managed to get the advantage on Graupe once the smoke cleared, allowing the Legion to make frequent tags to stop Graupe from tagging in his partners. After reversing a double STO into a double DDT of his own, Graupe tagged in Mantzios! After that, it was pretty much academic as the Iron Hearts steamrolled over Adrian Drake, leading to the Cyprus Kiss from Mantzios, followed by the Deadlift German Suplex from Jankovic for the victory in 19:21.
Following the match, Graupe and Mantzios signaled for the Vilaro Legion's Tag Team Championship. Marisol was not happy to see this, blaming Drake for losing the contest.
Singles Match - Non-Title Match
SWWS Evolve Champion Donny Mason vs. "The Royal" Dell Jacobs
We didn't know what to expect from Jacobs in this contest, especially facing off against Gateway's Evolve Champion. Mason had the power advantage, but it was the surprisingly well placed strikes from Jacobs that allowed him to gain a short advantage. The two matched each other with suplexes and strikes for the majority of the contest, eventually allowing Jacobs to deliver a unique Half Nelson Neckbreaker to Mason for a near fall. Mason managed to fire back by catching a diving Jacobs with a huge Fallaway Slam, followed by the Dambuster Boot for the victory in 10:28.
We're with Dr. Runa Olsen on video. She had some interesting words.
"I'm excited to know that we're coming back to San Jose in March, but I do have some unfinished business to tend to on Paradigm. While I can't be there with you tonight, I'm definitely there in spirit. Just know, once March 21st rolls around, you will hear those words. 'The Doctor Is In'. See you soon."
Singles Match - Pavel's Eliminator Match
Spence Sanders vs. Raul Ramirez
In our second Pavel's Eliminator Match, we have two men who are vying for the opportunity to face the SWWS World Heavyweight Champion in the near future. Ramirez looked strong at the start of the contest, using his speed to his advantage with a series of dropkicks and a spinning heel kick to force Sanders to regroup at ringside. A missed dive from Ramirez allowed Sanders to regain his momentum by slowing down the speedster with a vicious toss into the ring steps. After that, Sanders led the charge, nailing Ramirez with One Small Boot For Man for a near fall. Ramirez fought back, bringing in more unique offense, even countering a powerbomb with the Samurai DDT for a near fall of his own. In the end, it was a cheapshot from Sanders, followed by the Starkiller that led to the submission victory for Sanders in 15:28.
Tag Team Contest
The Sydney Experience (Kathrine Jardine and Maria Brienne) vs. The Inevitable (Kimberly Chase and Alandra) w/Ramesses and Mitchell Ryan
Want to know how over Kimberly Chase is? Watch her dropkick! Very early on in this contest, we got to see that very move. Her elevated dropkick sent the audience in San Jose into a frenzy, leading to thunderous chants of 'Kimberly, Kimberly'. She ignored it and continued working with Alandra to battle with Jardine and Brienne. Unfortunately, momentum switched back to the Experience as they targeted Alandra during most of the contest. Alandra used the crowd to get fired up enough to escape Brienne's bearhug, leading to the hot tag to Chase. Kimberly was like a house on fire, taking down Jardine several times with clotheslines and a body slam. Once Brienne was back in the ring, she was met with a Thesz Press by Alandra, followed by a hard neckbreaker to Brienne to allow Alandra to take her down. The finish came with Jardine attacking Chase, who reversed a powerbomb into a giant swing. Alandra used the spinning Jardine as a game of hop scotch, delivering a standing moonsault to Jardine which allowed Kimberly to roll onto her with the jacnkife for the pinfall in 16:24.
After the match, The Inevitable hammed it up with the audience. Alandra did a dive into the crowd, wanting Kimberly to do the same. Kimberly teased it several times, but walked off with Ramesses and Mitchell Ryan. She didn't seem as enthusiastic as Alandra was about embracing the audience.
Our lovely Ring Announcer reminded fans that after the show, they can purchase tickets for the next event coming to San Jose on March 21st. Yes, we say it a lot, but buy those tickets fast because this venue isn't exactly the biggest. Tickets sell out very quickly.
Onto our Main Event for the evening!!!
Eight Person Tag Team Contest
BLOOD (Endo and Aoki) and the BLOOD Diamonds (Juri Maou and Setsuka Fujii) vs. The COBRA Battalion (Jacob Fitch and Oliver Bradley) and SWWS Paradigm Tag Team Champions The Crimson Bouquet (Crazy Violet and Lillie Saint)
Right from the start, a brawl between the BLOOD Diamonds and the Crimson Bouquet brought the audience to their feet. No love was lost between these two teams, dating back to Standoff in November. The tandem offense from Saint and Violet worked on Maou, but Fujii managed to break it up with a double dropkick to both Champions. This brought BLOOD's Endo into the contest, who brawled it out with Fitch. The two traded heavy strikes, allowing the Battalion to get a bit of an advantage with their superb double team moves. Eventually, BLOOD was able to slow down Oliver Bradley and regain the upper hand. The hot tag to Crazy Violet brought a war with Fujii in the middle of the ring, allowing Saint and Maou to battle it out as well. All seemed well for the Bouquet as they signaled for the Forget Me Not, but Aoki delivered a hellacious superkick to Saint! Fujii took advantage of the distracted Violet by hitting her with a Chokeslam onto the ring apron! Fitch got into the ring, but took the Alarm Clock from Aoki and Endo, leading to Of Little Death from BLOOD for the victory in 24:33!!
Following the contest, BLOOD exited the ring as Aoki checked on Crazy Violet to see if she was okay. In the meantime, Juri Maou and Setsuka Fujii celebrated their win by attacking Lillie Saint in the middle of the ring. They teased doing the double Bicycle Knees that BLOOD is known for, but out came Kimberly Chase and Alandra who cleared the ring of the BLOOD Diamonds. A war of words ensued between the two sides. We will have exclusive footage of this wild battle on Wednesday Night's Blitzkrieg!!
