12/29 GEORGIA PREMIER WRESTLING WARGAMES REPORT

Georgia Premier Wrestling War Games Report from Canton - December 29, 2018

Georgia Premier Wrestling finished out 2018 with the company’s first ever War Games match.

In so doing, GPW pulled off one of the hottest and most surprising angles of the year.

As War Games go, the match itself was nothing special. But GPW hit pay dirt with the angle. Fans were in a state of shock after seeing GPW co-owner Darrell Morris turn against his own company. Shock turned to outrage. Morris was holed in the building for 90 minutes after the show as fans waited to confront him.

Morris and the evil Logan Chase had been at each other’s throats for months. This was the night Team Chase was going to get their comeuppance. Instead, Morris handed Team Chase the match and the night ended with co-owner “Big Wood” Greg Hullender laid out in the ring at the hands of Morris’ handpicked mystery guy.

It will be interesting to see where this angle goes moving into the new year. Who is going to run the company? What could motivate Morris, who has been a model of honor and propriety, to do such a thing?

Attendance at the Old Buffington School Gym was 275. GPW has been in the 200 range since returning to the gym so the War Games gave them a boost.

GPW isn’t going to set the world on fire with their shows. Morris and Hullender have no illusions on that score. They consistently put on solid shows that satisfy their fanbase. GPW has developed and maintained a loyal core following. The babyfaces are all over. The heels are uniformly hated. Wrestlers with strong technical fundamentals and/or superb athleticism really stand out because GPW doesn’t all that many of them. Everyone has to start somewhere, and for many young wrestlers that somewhere is GPW.

Morris and Chase opened the show with a round of verbal jousting regarding the War Games.and their respective mystery team members. Morris vowed to knock Chase’s head off if he stuck his nose in the match. Chase cast doubt on Morris’ ability to find someone to replace the injured Ray Ray and promised his side would have The Ultimate Surprise.

(1) Georgia Heat (Cody Roberts & Mr. Showtime) defeated Relenza (King Guruda & Takura) to retain the GPW tag titles in 7:35. GA Heat over big with the GPW faithful. Relenza were billed from the Land or the Rising Sun. The Aztec Empire would be closer to the truth. Takura faked an ankle injury to lure Showtime into letting down his guard. A “USA” chant ensued as Relenza got heat in Showtime. Takura received a self-inflicted hotshot when his head slipped outside the top rope. It was strange. Hot tag and right to the finish – a Michinoku Driver by Roberts followed by Showtime’s frogsplash for the pin on Garuda. This was a totally ordinary match. The work wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t crisp either.

(2) Shalandra Royal defeated Black Widow in 5:13. This was a bad match, although not a bad outing for Royal given it was only the second match of her career. Royal has appealing energy, works hard and is clearly getting good training at One Fall. She needs to do something about her hair. Widow needs to do something about her presentation, which screams low level indy. Royal threw a dropkick that never got higher than Widow’s thigh. Royal evaded Widow’s mad charge into the corner and pinned her with a schoolboy.

Postmatch - Thunder Blonde came out of the crowd and laid Royal out with a Samoan drop. Blonde cut a good promo. She needs to do something about those shorts or at least stop pulling at them. The gist of Blonde’s promo was this -- Royal was getting opportunities on a silver platter that bigger, stronger people like her were trying to earn.

Intermission

(3) “Boogie Woogie Boy” Gary Valiant & GPW Cruiserweight Champion Torque defeated Michael Stevens & “Kevin Dunn in 9:59. Valiant was billed as Jimmy’s son. He worked the crowd like crazy until he won them over. Valiant literally swept ring announcer Miss Brittany off her feet with a kiss. Valiant’s antics included sticking his finger up Dunn’s butt…twice. Hey, it popped the crowd in Canton. A 15 second exchange between Stevens and Torque provided the first glimmer of good wrestling so far tonight. Valiant took the heat. He bumped big and sold a knee injury like the pain was unbearable. “Boogie” chant leading into the hot tag. The finish saw Valiant rescue Torque from a double suplex and give Dunn a stunner. Torque then pinned Dunn with a 450. The comedy worked. The fans were entertained. Valiant’s brand of babyface selling was the norm 30 years ago. It looks overdone in 2018 but was nevertheless effective in this case.

Postmatch – Valiant pulled down his tights to show off his “oh mercy” underwear and sneaked a kiss on Torque while selling the knee the entire time.
