NWA Rampage Pro Wrestling results for 8/21


Ben Masters comes out to inform everyone that in two weeks, NWA Rampage Pro
Wrestling will be celebrating their 3-Year Anniversary. He then goes on to review the
competitors scheduled to compete on today’s card.

1 -- “Hit for Hire” Bobby Moore (with Charlie Cash) vs. Caleb Konley (w/ Cedric
Alexander)
Referee: Stan Robinson

Moore served as somewhat of a comic relief, as he frequently was getting frustrated
at his failed attempts to take advantage of the match and often insulted the ref and his
opponent. After about 4 minutes, Cash gets involved by preventing Konley from
successfully jumping from the top rope, allowing Moore to capitalize. Cash was
noticeably annoyed when Moore was on the short end of the match and even when he
was showing off while having the upper hand. Konley takes over the match around 7
minutes in and lands some very impressive strikes to Moore before being slammed
face-first into the turnbuckle. In the end, Konley wins with an Inverted Knee
Facebuster.

Result: Caleb Konley wins via pinfall at 10:06.

2 -- “The Winner” Anthony Andrews & Sal Rinauro & Jeremy Vain (with Doug Somers)
vs “Marvelous” Michael Stevens & Drew Adler & Officer Chris Jacobs
Referee: Dustin Robinson

Sal and Adler start off with some impressive technical wrestling. Andrews tags in but
promptly tags out when Jacobs is tagged in against him. When Marv enters the fray
he continuously appeals to the crowd to get them more vocally involved in the match.
Somers managed to trip Marv without being noticed by the ref and the team lead to
the ring by Andrews gained the advantage, tagging out to each other to keep Marv
worn down. Marv fights back, and hot tags Adler in around the 8 minute mark.
Everyone gets involved, with Jacobs and Andrews tagging in as the legal men.
Andrews is knocked out of the ring during the fray and goes to hiding under the ring.
When Marv and Adler dive to the outside to take down Rinauro and Vain, Andres
sneaks in behind the now alone Jacobs to land a Rolling Cutter for the win.

Result: Anthony Andrews, Sal Rinauro, Jeremy Vain win via pinfall (Andrews pins
Jacobs) at 10:26.

3 -- Rob Adonis (with Charlie Cash) vs. Frankie Valentine
Referee: Stan Robinson

Cash seemed much less frustrated with Adonis through the match, even when he
was losing or showing off. Adonis holds the advantage for much of the match with the
impressive strength and overwhelming size that he boasts. Just as Valentine was
making a real come back, Jeremy Vain and Doug Somers come to the ring and attack
him, prompting a disqualification.

Result: Frankie Valentine wins via Disqualification (Interference) at 5:26.

Doc Gayton comes out with a chair to make the save. He then gets a mic and cuts a
promo stating that the No Time Limit Match that Vain still owes Valentine for the
Television Title will be held at RPW’s 3rd Anniversary show.

4 -- Corey Hollis vs J-Rod
Referee: Dustin Robinson

These two put on an amazing match. It started almost exclusively technical until Hollis
was kicked from the ring around the 3 minute mark. Upon returning to the ring, the
match seemed to get more violent as Hollis continues to get angrier at J-Rod, and the
two start using more and more blows to replace some of the technical wrestling they
started with, as well as even getting in some trash talking. When Hollis took
advantage, the crowd would always start making some noise for J-Rod. Every time J-
Rod would kick out of a pin or escape a submission, Hollis would get even more
frustrated. After a brief come back from J-Rod, he show boats for a few seconds and
is rolled up by Hollis, tights in hand, for the finish.

Result: Corey Hollis wins via pinfall at 9:02.

5 -- NWA RPW Tag Team Championship Match
Hot Like Lava (Shaun Banks & Cru Jones) (C) vs 7Oh!4 (Caleb Konley & Cedric
Alexander)
Referee: Stan Robinson

Banks briefly mentions the new Hot Like Lava shirts being sold. Banks and Jones do
a lot of trash talking in this match. Alexander gets the crowd excited with some
excellent technical wrestling before moving on to strategically tagging back and forth
to stay fresh against a worn down Shaun Banks. Cru Jones tags in and both teams
seem to stay on even ground for the rest of the match. At one point Cru and Banks
illegally switch behind Referee Stan Robinson, which is nothing new to their trick list.
Hot Like Lava keep advantage for a while until Alexander lands a surprise Bulldog
and hot tags Konley around 7 minutes in. 7Oh!4 seem to have the match won when
they catch Banks alone and land a double team move combining a kick to the back of
his head with an Inverted Russian Leg Sweep, but Banks kicks out and escapes the
ring. Banks then gets himself Disqualified by deliberately using the Tag Title belt as a
weapon.

Result: 7Oh!4 wins via Disqualification (illegal object use) at 8:48.

Hot Like Lava continue the assault after the match until the Usual Suspects make the
save. Doc comes out and announces that Hot Like Lava will be defending the Tag
Titles later on against the Usual Suspects and that he is confident that there will be
new Tag Team Champions.

During the brief break we are shown some interviews that Ben Masters did during
NWA Legends Fanfest, including the likes of Mr. Wrestling #2, Austin Idol, and Greg
Valentine.

6 -- Jimmy Rave Approved (“Do Or Die” Chip Day & Mike Posey)(with Jimmy Rave) vs
Kyle Matthews (originally advertised to team up with Ace Rockwell)
Referee: Stan Robinson

Rave tells Matthews that since he took care of Ace Rockwell in NWA Chattanooga the
night before, he could just simply quit and leave. After the crowd gets behind
Matthews, he agrees to wrestle the match alone. Matthews does a good job of
annoying the Approved group in the early portion of the match and even goes out of
the ring to hit Jimmy Rave. Rave gets a little pay back by attacking Matthews but is
dismissed from ringside by referee Stan. Matthews succumbs to the numbers game
for a while with the Approved team using a lot of their double team tactics on him.
Matthews eventually makes a come back and pushes Chip Day from the ring, who
pulls out the referee shortly after to interrupt a pin attempt. With the referee focused on
Chip Day, Sal Rinauro comes out and delivers a Low Blow to Matthews and leaves.
Posey picks up the win.

Result: Jimmy Rave Approved wins via pinfall (Posey pins Matthews) at 13:08.

Rave, Sal, and Corey all come out and they all continue to attack Kyle Matthews until
Doc Gayton comes out. He tells them that Sal is suspended and that the next person
who attacks Matthews will suffer the same punishment. He then goes on to say that if
Sal is seen in the RPW Arena or even at Johnny G’s Fun Center during his
suspension that he will be fired.

7 -- NWA RPW Tag Team Championship Match
Hot Like Lava (Shaun Banks & Cru Jones)(C) vs. The Usual Suspects (Murder One &
AJ Steele)
Referee: Dustin Robinson

AJ and Cru start the match off by trying to overpower each other with their strength.
Murder is eventually brought in and spits in the face of Banks, causing him to enter
the ring illegally but is stopped by the ref. Surprisingly, the Suspects didn’t utilize this
distraction to perform anything illegal like their opponents would have. Once Banks
does tag in, Hot Like Lava manages to take advantage with their usual double team
tactics. AJ Steele is noticeably vocal from the apron, breaking his vow of silence,
when Hot Like Lava would use illegal tactics behind the referee. The more Hot Like
Lava pinned and took down Murder One, the more he would kick out which lead to
them getting increasingly frustrated with him. Murder comes out of nowhere with a
Cutter, which he usually uses as his finisher, and hot tags AJ Steele in around the 10
minute mark. Banks and Jones attempt to get themselves disqualified by using the
belts as they did with 7Oh!4 earlier. Cru holds Steele as Banks attempts to hit him,
but AJ ducks out and Cru takes the blow. Murder One gets in the ring and they land a
Double Choke Slam on Shaun Banks for the victory.

Result: The Usual Suspects win via pinfall (AJ Steele pins Shaun Banks) at 10:51 to
regain the NWA Rampage Pro Wrestling Tag Team Championships.
