EPW results from Saturday night in Booneville, MS



Good crowd was on hand at EPW Saturday night, and they were treated to a VERY good show.

At the beginning of the show Hollywood Jimmy Blaylock, along with the members of the Hollywood Clique, came to the ring to run their mouths. They were joined by Derrick King, who ran his mouth for a while. Antoin Smooth came out of the back and told them that Derrick King and the rest of the Hollywood Clique would get what is coming to them sooner or later.

Chazz Stone over Chris Fontaine by DQ due to interference by Justin Rhodes. Rhodes & Fontaine then beat Chazz down.

Tommy Wayne over Chase Knight by DQ due to interference by the Hollywood Clique. They started to beat Tommy down - Bonecrusher & Cassanova Kid in to make the save.

EPW Champion Buzz Harley defeated Kross to retain.

Antwon Smooth and Big Daddy Neno came to the ring carrying Kross, who was tied to a chair. They then let the fans throw pies in his face, until they ran out of pies. Then they went to the concession stand and got all the mustard they could find and some more fans got to pour mustard on him. Hilarious!

Fans bring the weapons - falls count anywhere - Bonecrusher/Cassanova Kid/Tommy Wayne vs. Derrick King/Soultaker/Johnny Thunder w/Hollywood Jimmy. This was not a match at all. It was a brawl, with Hollywood constantly interfering. In the end, however, Cassanova Kid pinned Derrick King for the win for his team. Hollywood, Soultaker, & Johnny Thunder were angry at King for losing. Derrick demanded a "do over." So....

An impromptu singles match, Derrick King vs. Cassanova Kid, which Cassanova won in 2 minutes and 5 seconds. Clique members were even more angry at Derrick. Derrick demanded yet another match with Cassanova, assuring the Clique members by saying,
"I got this." So....

A second impromptu match, Derrick King vs. Cassanova Kid, which Cassanova won in under two minutes. Clique members angry at Derrick. They go to the back, leaving Derrick in the ring alone.

End of show.

Remember, you never know what will happen at EPW, or who might show up, so do not miss this Saturday's EPW show. What will the Hollywood Clique do next? Will this be the week that Smooth & Neno give Hollywood and the Hollywood Clique members "what is coming to them?" Will Derrick King dare show up at EPW again after being beaten 3 times? These and other questions will be answered at EPW this Saturday night at the EPW Arena on Highway 145 in Booneville, MS. Bell time is 8:00 p.m. Don't miss it!

Brie and Nikki Bella run West Point obstacle course


WWE recently sent the Bella Twins, Brie and Nikki, to West Point, in an effort to show WWE's support for the troops - and made them run the obstacle course.

Brie and Nikki Bella visited with cadets at the West Point military academy in New York on Tuesday as part of WWE's annual “Tribute to the Troops” program. The twins had to run through the actual obstacle course that West Point cadets must complete in order to graduate.

By the way - Brie finished first.

You can see a photo of the Bella Twins at West Point here:

Matt Hardy released from jail


ThePilot.com is reporting that former WWE and TNA star Matt Hardy was released from jail on Monday morning after District Court Judge Robert Wilkins reduced his bond from $1 million to $100,000 "on condition he be released only to treatment for substance abuse." District Attorney Maureen Krueger noted this decision was done "over the state's objection."

Hardy will face a series of court dates over a variety of charges. Dates include 11/30 for a driving while impaired charge, 12/1 for felony possession with intent to manufacture/sell/or deliver a schedule 3 controlled substance (other charges including a felony possession of a schedule 1 controlled substance, felony maintaining a vehicle/dwelling for controlled substances and a misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia), 12/6 for reckless driving and 12/21 for driving while impaired/exceeding a safe speed.

Ken Anderson defends Jeff Hardy's return to TNA



The Sun in the UK is featuring an interview with TNA star Ken Anderson who defends Jeff Hardy and his recent return to the company after legal problems.

"A guy like Jeff Hardy, regardless of what you think about him personally, is a tremendous entertainer. He loves this business and gives his all to this business. Everybody makes mistakes, everybody does stupid stuff. I'm not trying to make excuses for anybody, but when you've had the career that he's had and done the things that he's done, you're bound to make mistakes. When you do make mistakes people are going to look at it with a magnifying glass and amplify it and make it bigger than it actually is. I think he's done a great job of overcoming that and recognising 'I did this. This is my problem. How do I fix it so that I don't do it again? How do I move forward?' He's done all those things. I have no judgments about Jeff Hardy other than the fact that he is a great performer and a hell of a guy."

TNA Knockout Says Her Contract Has Expired


Jackie Moore stated Monday on Twitter that her contract with TNA Wrestling has expired and she expects to be removed from their roster page shortly.

Moore wrote, "I guess they will remove me from the roster page soon....contract is up."

She forewarned her departure from the organization a day prior to Madusa, writing, "I'm getting no love from a certain company....Lol. I guess I'm a little too rough in the ring."

Moore returned to TNA Wrestling last June alongside ODB under the guise of outsiders, with the duo promising to clean up the Knockouts division. In August, Moore and ODB abandoned their villainous antics in order to gain contracts with the promotion. After several weeks of working as babyfaces, they were signed to contracts by the new head of the Knockouts division, Karen Jarrett. Moore, however, was not used again. Via Twitter, she expressed her disappointment with being excluded from the 10-Knockouts Gauntlet Match on November 14.

Three great MLW matches now available




Match 556, Test of Strength Match, Christie Ricci vs. Barbi Hayden:
Christie Ricci wanted a shot at the Test of Strength title held by Barbi Hayden.... They gave it their all, from the upstairs dressing room to outside and in the ring. Nothing was resolved, but one thing is for sure, these two will meet again for the title very soon!




Match 559, Robbie Rage vs. Angel Orsini:
Two veterans met in the M L W ring.... Angel Orsini was trained by the great late Liz Chase, Robbie Rage was trained by the Icon Gypsy Joe. Both of these ladies know how to wrestle, but in a wrestling match as we all know only one person can win, and in this match the winner was in charge most of the match. Angel Orsini seems to never age a minute in her life!




Match 562, MsChif vs. Leva Bates:
MsChif, the unique lady, took on Leva Bates, the unique lady.... Both of these ladies have their own personality, and both are good wrestlers. MsChif is world reknown, Leva is wanting to be that also. If you have never seen MsChif, you need to! What a talented lady! Leva is a star in the making for sure! Great Match - watch out for the Ghostbuster!


These and other great ladies matches are available at www.mlwonline.com! Check 'em out! You will be glad you did!
