Steel Domain Wrestling
Hopkins, Minnesota at the Hopkins Pavilion
Report by Dot Net's Jason Biagi
Adam Pearce came out for an interview (and destroyed my sign in quick order.) Pearce insulted Mick March and Ken Resnick. Pearce said he was going to fix what happened the last time he and Colt Cabana fought in Hopkins (Cabana beat Pearce in controversial fashion in Stage 3 of the famed Seven Levels Of Hate series by forcing Pearce to say "I quit").
1. Darin Corbin beat Benjamin Sailer. Corbin held the ropes for the pin.
2. Stacey O'Brien pinned Miss Natural. Both women worked really hard. Miss Natural hit a vicious German duplex into the corner but Stacey rallied with a lungblower for the win. Great match.
3. AJ LaRock beat Josh Calisto and a masked wrestler in a handicap match. Calisto had a masked man with him and LaRock wanted to fight them both. The pair got in very little offense as LaRock sideslammed the masked man, spinebusted Calisto, and submitted them both with a Camel Clutch.
4. Dan Jesser beat Mr Inkredible. Jesser is a veteran who's been around a long time and it showed. Nothing special here. Jesser got the pin with a handful of tights.
5. Ricky Love beat "Sheik" Ariya Daivari (w/The Golden Idol). Grudge match between these two and they work well together. Daivari missed the Magic Carpet Ride and Love almost pinned him. Daivari tried to hit Love with a flagpole but hit Idol instead. Love hit a fireman's carry driver to win.
6. SDW Northern States Champion" Hot Shot "Danny Duggan beat Ryan Slade. Even match until AJ LaRock attacked Duggan when referee Jay Soltis went down. Slade tried to finish off Duggan but the champion hit a uranage out of nowhere to retain.
Intermission followed to set up the cage.
Mick Karch interviewed legendary trainer Eddie Sharkey (who helped train The Road Warriors and Jesse Ventura among others) and presented him with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
7. Adam Pearce beat Colt Cabana in a cage match. Victory could be gained by pinball or escape. Both men fought to run the other into the cage until Pearce hit a low blow then rammed Cabana into the cage twice. Pearce put Colt in a figure-four leglock but Colt escaped. Pearce tried again but Colt kicked him off and into the cage. Colt moonsaulted onto Pearce then hit a bionic elbow for two. Colt hit a low blow on Pearce then locked on a figure-four of his own. Later, Colt put Pearce in the Billy Goat's Curse and hit a buttsplash. The ref got knocked out by Pearce as Colt left the cage thinking he'd won. Pearce followed him and piledrove Colt on the floor. Pearce threw Colt back inside the ring and hit a second piledriver just as the ref came around. Pearce then left the cage to win the match. Great cage match.
