WrestleCade 2017 SuperShow Results & Pictures
Once again as a part of WrestleCade Weekend in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Saturday night featured the WrestleCade SuperShow. Below are the results and pics from the show which streamed live on FITE TV, I will follow up with a report on the Fanfest portion of the event as well as some of the other events that took place as part of the weekend's festivities.
Opening Match- 4 Way Corners Tag Match
The Extreme Horsemen (CW Anderson/Damian Wayne defeated The Boys (aka The Tate Twins)/The Spirit Squad (Mikey/Kenny)/The Heatseekers
Great match to open the show
"Bad Ass" Billy Gunn defeated Carlito
Triple Threat Match
Zane Dawson defeated Luke Hawx/Tommy Dreamer
Good showing here from all three guys. Dawson is the AML Champion. Hawx has been a featured competitor in the last several WrestleCade events. Post-match Dreamer put over Dusty Rhodes and the fact that there may be a "Starrcade going on up the road from here but the REAL wrestling fans are here at WrestleCade" which got a big pop as you would expect.
Fun match with Gunn playing face but Carlito has his share of support as well
Jerry "the King" Lawler defeated George South
South spent what felt like FOREVER cutting a heel promo trying to get heat before the match name dropping Andy Kaufman and Ric Flair among others, King was over with the fans and went over with the first of two finishes that would directly physically involve the referee
The Veterans of War (Wilcox/Mayweather) defeated America's Top Team (Bobby Lashley/King Mo)
Wilcox/Mayweather are formally known as Jax Dane/Crimson. Very awkward match in spots...Lashley carried most of the match for the inexperienced King Mo, seemed like early on they couldn't decide which team was the heel team, decent match overall
Six Man Lucha Tag Match
Kaleb Konley/Super Crazy/Juventud Guerrera defeated PJ Black/Jason Kincaid/Willie Mack
this was the match of the night other than the referee completely blowing the three count on the finish which made an exciting ending fall completely flat, Willie Mack does amazing things for a man his size...Juvi and Super Crazy looked good and Konley deserves to be in Lucha Underground or NXT!
#1 Contender's Match for the WOW Championship
Jungle Girl beat Amber O'Neil w/Lana Star by DQ
Run in and other shenanigans couldn't save this one
Dan 'the Beast' Severn w/Jim Cornette defeated Josh "the Goods" Woods
The match was said to be Cornette's last match ever as a manager. The match was very technical and wrestled in a amateur style. A few of the fans were chanting "boring" and heckling both Severn and Woods. Cornette was visibly annoyed by this but managed not to lose it on the mic. Afterwards, Cornette and Severn put over Woods as "the future" and Cornette said that the Carolinas hold a special place for him as he wouldn't have had the career he had if not for his time here for Jim Crockett Promotions.
Top Rope Belts Battle Royal featuring tons of local talent as well as Mr. Hughes, D'Lo Brown, Hornswoggle, Kevin Thorn, Matt Striker, Bobby Fulton, The Hurricane, Crazzy Steve, Stan Lee, among many others was won by the Hurricane!
Typical battle royal stuff with some fun things thrown like a chokeslam from Hornswoggle on Hurricane at one point.
Ryback defeated Joey Mercury
Pretty decent match....a lot of Larry Zbyszko-esque stalling from Mercury early on but the match finally got going and had some impressive shows of strength from Mercury before going down to the 'shell shock' from Ryback.
No DQ Match
Ivelisse defeated Taya Valkyrie
Impressive match from the two stars of Lucha Underground that involved chairs, chains, ladders, and tables. At one point they fought out into the crowd on top of one of the banquet tables the fans were seated at, far superior to the previous women's match on the card.
TNA Impact Global Championship
Eli Drake defeated Johnny Impact/Jack Swagger w/Catalina Swagger
I didn't stay for this one but was told it was good match. Long promo pre-match from Drake. A lot of people are high on this guys but I just don't see it.....to me he sounds like somebody doing a bad Steve Austin impression but that's just me. He seems to be picking up steam with many fans so that's whats important.
