MAY 2017, WEEK 1…

Show Rating: (83) – I had production value issues! Out of the blue.

Pre-Show Match: The Ring Generals defeated Two Local Enhancement Talents with a 'Waldorf Salad Toss' (Pop-Up Powerbomb) (61)

Announce Team:



Peter Michaels, Tom Townsend and 'RDJ' Ricky Dale Johnson


The show kicked off with the 'General Manager' of NOTBPW: Alex DeColt heading to the ring...


The power-hungry DeColt brother said that there's been a lot of speculation regarding the Main Event of Mid Summer Madness!!

Alex DeColt: “It's all about my brothers... Ricky won the Super Slam Battle Royale... Jack is the current Canadian Champion... Steve BEAT Jack, albeit by disqualification... AT Super Slam... I just don't know what to do about this...”

The crowd began chanting: 'TRI-PLE-THREAT' over and over again, but Alex had other ideas...

Alex DeColt: “Nooo... Yu see, I think a Triple Threat is a good idea... but I wanna go one better... So, at Mid Summer Madness I will choose a FOURTH man to enter that match... That man will represent ME... and the vision that I have for NOTBPW...”

We'll hear more from Alex's brothers later tonight, as the three of them will compete in the Main Event... in a tag team match!!




World's Most Wanted (Thrill Seeker & Jacob Jett) [vs] The Mavericks (John Maverick & Julian Watson)

Both of these tag teams did an excellent job in this match. The NOTBPW Tag Team Champions: World's Most Wanted were watched from backstage by their Glory opponents Edd and Duane Stone, and what the Stones saw was a polished performance from both Thrill Seeker and Jacob Jett. They were beaten up by John Maverick and Julian Watson for most of this match, but exploded into life at the end when Jett was tagged in for the 'hot tag'. Jett ended it by flying off the top rope to hit his 'Emergency Landing' finisher on Watson!

Winners: World's Most Wanted (Thrill Seeker & Jacob Jett)
Rating: 81
Finish: 'Emergency Landing' (450 Splash)


Backstage, despite their victory, Edd and Duane Stone were NOT impressed with World's Most Wanted...


Edd told Duane that he saw a number of weaknesses in Thrill Seeker and Jacob Jett tonight...

Edd Stone: “At Glory... We will TAKE the NOTBPW Tag Team Titles from those two fricking spot monkeys... We'll pick them up, throw them around, and crush them... And then this GLORIOUS family... Will be back on the top of the mountain!!”

Duane nodded along, but didn't really have much input... At Glory, World's Most Wanted defend against The Stones!!


We saw a video re-cap next of scenes from last week, when Alex DeColt FIRED five NOTBPW employees...

He first told Johnny Bloodstone and Jared Johnson they were done with the company...

Then later on in the show, after Dan DaLay complained about supposed 'nepotism', he was told he could leave too!!

Then so was DaLay's tag team partner Derek Frost... and DaLay's son Robin, who is in developmental, rounded off the five!!
Peter Michaels: “When will the firings end guys...?! The power has gone completely to Alex DeColt's head!!”
RDJ: “Be careful there Maggles... Don't question the boss's motives at this stage... He's clearly a very, very, smart man...”
Tom Townsend: “Oh you're just worried about losing your job RDJ... Alex DeColt is a power-hungry... Egotistical... DIC...”
Peter Michaels: “DICTATOR... That's the word you're looking for there Tom... He's a Dictator... But guys, next week, we're going to get an update on Dan DaLay, Derek Frost and Dan's son Robin...”


w/
'The Anvil' Mark Griffin [vs] 'The Assassin of the Squared Circle' Ernest Youngman w/ The Ring Generals

Mark Griffin made a good showing of himself tonight, but he was in the ring against the ultra-talented Ernest Youngman. The 24 year old has a long way to go before he's considered a top name in NOTBPW. But with The Ring Generals and his 'mentor' Sean Deeley helping him out like this, he could remain undefeated for a long, long time. He won it tonight by whipping Griffin into the ropes, and then blasting him with 'The Hit'!

Winner: 'The Assassin of the Squared Circle' Ernest Youngman w/ The Ring Generals
Rating: 71
Finish: 'The Hit' (Pounce)




Backstage, Donte Dunn and Erik Strong were strolling down a corridor, before they opened a closed door and walked in...


Dunn and Strong were talking about their successes in NOTBPW, and in Canada in general... But they were stopped in their tracks...

The camera panned to reveal the duo known as 'Mayhem': Aldous Blackfriar and Mutant...


Blackfriar was sat with his legs crossed in the middle of a dimly lit room... His eyes were closed, and he was meditating...

Mutant stood over his 'leader' like a bodyguard, and was furious to see Dunn and Strong walk in... His anger grew when they laughed at Aldous...

And when Aldous opened his eyes, and was disrupted from his meditation, he told Mutant to unleash that anger!!

The big man flew across the room, and slammed Donte Dunn backwards through the door!!

Erik Strong and Mutant entered into a fist fight, but there was only going to be one winner there...

Mutant ended up lifting Strong up onto his shoulder, and dropping him down onto a chair!!

Dunn was then hit with a lariat as he came back into the room, and landed hard on his back!!

Aldous nodded in satisfaction with Mutant's work, and then closed his eyes again to go back to his meditation...


Next up, we took a look at a profile for current NOTBPW Television Champion: 'Mainstream' James Hernandez...


Hernandez has had a brilliant start to his NOTBPW career, capturing the TV Title twice in his first nine months...

His crowning performance was a 1 on 1 match against Tim Westybrook at Clash Classic earlier this year...

On that night, he defeated Tim Westybrook, with a little help from 'Mighty' Danny Cavanagh...

Their only previous encounter up to that point was as one-sided as they come, with Westybrook destroying Hernandez...

Nobody gave him a chance in the re-match, but it's arguable that Hernandez would have won without any help from Cavanagh!!

Later tonight, Hernandez will find out his opponent for the May pay-per-view extravaganza: Glory...



w/ w/
The Natural w/ Owen Love [vs] 'The Stud' Christian Price w/ Cameron Vessey

Back to the in-ring action, and one half of the Can-Am Blondes tag team: The Natural, was taking on one of their fierce rivals: Christian Price. These two teams have been at each other's throats for months, and it was no different here tonight. Owen Love was minding his own business on the outside of the ring when Cameron Vessey tried to jump him. The veteran Love managed to counter the sneak attack though, and he sent Vessey flying into the ring post. The attack may not have worked, but it ultimately had the desired affect. In the ring, The Natural was distracted, and he walked on to a 'Stud Stopper' and was pinned!

Winner: 'The Stud' Christian Price w/ Cameron Vessey
Rating: 76
Finish: 'Stud Stopper' (Stunner)


Owen Love slid into the ring to try to grab Christian Price, but he rolled out of it quickly...

Price and Cameron Vessey learned recently that they would be teaming with Jack DeColt at Glory!!

Their opponents will be their rivals: The CanAm Blondes, and their partner... Steve DeColt!!

This match will be a star-studded Main Event... With both teams looking to get one over on their rivals heading into Mid Summer Madness!!


We took another look at a promo package for new NOTBPW signing: Wade Orson next...


Orson comes to NOTBPW from 21CW, a sports entertainment company across the pond in Britain...

Many have tipped Orson for future stardom... Due in part to his muscular 6'5, 270lb physique and his endless natural charisma...

Orson has the presence of a champion-in-the-making... and the size and on-camera skills to match...

Time will tell if he's a success in another country, but he should fit in well with this talented roster...




'All Business' Harrison Hash [vs] 'The Hillbilly Heartthrob' Solomon Gold

This match marked the NOTBPW debut of recent House of Stone Graduate Solomon Gold. It was a huge moment for the 20 year old from Tennessee, but one that Harrison Hash cared little about. He was just solely focused on defeating the young upstart, and he did it in spectacular fashion. For the finish, he hooked Gold up for his 'Century Suplex' (delayed vertical). As he dropped Gold down, he made Gold land on his feet with his back to Hash, allowing Hash to lock in his 'Montreal Deep Sleeper', which made poor Gold pass out!

Winner: 'All Business' Harrison Hash
Rating: 48
Finish: 'Montreal Deep Sleeper'




Our next match saw NOTBPW Television Champion James Hernandez walk out to the commentary desk...


Hernandez spoke of his willingness to take on whichever man wins the next match at Glory... He'd meet them all if he had to...

He said he didn't have a preference as such, but he does believe that Sonny Wildside has a bright future here...



'The Ace' Aaron Andrews [vs] 'The Man Without Fear' Sonny Wildside [vs] 'Shooter' Sean Deeley

To his credit, Sean Deeley didn't bring out the rest of his 'Shooters' for this match, opting to go it alone to prove he's worthy of a Television Title shot. However, as the match wore on, it looked increasingly unlikely that 'The Shooter' himself could win! Triple Threat Matches are historically No Disqualification Matches, but things broke down in a hurry after around the 12 minute mark. Aaron Andrews had thrown Sonny Wildside out of the ring, and he lined the hurt Deeley up for his Flying Body Press. But Ernest Youngman, Dean Waldorf and Marv Statler hit the ring and began attacking him. Wildside got back in, but he too was taken out by the three athletes at Deeley's disposal. The referee could have allowed it, but he instead called for the bell, and threw the match out!

Winner: DRAW
Rating: 81
Finish: 'Multiple Disqualifications'


After the referee's decision, Sean Deeley and co. were furious... and Aaron Andrews and Sonny Wildside took the brunt of their anger!!


The four on two attack didn't last long though, because James Hernandez slid under the bottom rope and started taking people out!!

Marv Statler went over the top rope, and Dean Waldorf took a Super Kick for his troubles...

Sean Deeley and Ernest Youngman decided to retreat... Satisfied that their attack had done the damage...


The announce team spoke about an interesting Tweet they saw earlier in the day... from 'The Iron Fist' Dan DaLay...

Peter Michaels: “Guys, the 'Iron Fist' looks like he typed out that Tweet WITH his fists!!”
Tom Townsend: “Yeah you can sense the anger coming from DaLay's comments there... He is FURIOUS about being fired... after 23 years in the business... His friend Derek Frost was also fired... and so was his son; developmental talent Robin DaLay...!!”
RDJ: “That man did NOT, deserve to be... Well... Look... Alex DeColt can do whatever he likes as far as I'm concerned... I for one, am VERY happy working here... and I don't want that to change...!!”
The three announcers tried to remain impartial, but they also had to be careful not to get fired themselves...

Alex DeColt was on the war-path last week, and he could very well follow that up tonight by taking out one, or all, of the announcers...

But the real story about this segment, was what does Dan DaLay know about Alex DeColt...?! And will we ever find out...!?


More on that next week... Tonight in the ring, the crowd got a shock when 'The Monster' Gargantuan arrived!!


Gargantuan paced around in the ring for a few moments, as the announce team questioned why he was out there...

He doesn't have a scheduled match... They knew that... He was just pacing... Until he demanded a microphone!!

Gargantuan: “. . . . . . MIGHTY!!! . . . . . . . . . . . CAVANAGH!!!”

He threw the microphone down... and carried on pacing around the ring!! Until 'Mighty' Danny Cavanagh answered the challenge!!


Cavanagh didn't show any fear as he stood face to face with Gargantuan... But even at 6'6”, and 290lbs, he was dwarfed by 'The Monster'...

Gargantuan goes 7'1”, and 350lbs... So he dwarfs most people... Cavanagh stooped to pick up the microphone...

Danny Cavanagh: “They call you: Gargantuan... You are undefeated in well over a year... But I gotta ask you... Are you sure...?! Are you SURE... You want this...?! Are you sure you're ready for it all to end...?!”

A rare smile crept across the usually emotionless Gargantuan's face... and he nodded, and mouthed the word: 'GLORY'...!!

It looks like 'Mighty' Danny Cavanagh and 'The Monster' Gargantuan will be going 1 on 1 next Saturday night!!

Gargantuan walked away, showing how much respect he had for


An interesting Main Event was on deck next... Featuring three DeColt brothers... and 'The Iron Man' Tim Westybrook...



Steve & Ricky DeColt [vs] Jack DeColt & Tim Westybrook

An incredible Main Event here, with all four men getting plenty of offence in. Tim Westybrook proved his worth in the Main Event scene alongside the three DeColt brothers with a flawless performance. He hit some awesome power moves on Ricky DeColt in particular! But it was the final few minutes where this match was won and lost for these two makeshift teams. Ricky DeColt badly needed a tag, and he managed to somehow kick Tim Westybrook in the gut on the apron, and then knock Jack DeColt down with a lariat. Both DeColt brothers crawled towards their respective corners, but as Jack arrived at his, Westybrook hopped down and stepped backwards! He clearly feigned a rib injury from the kick from Ricky DeColt, and told Jack he couldn't get in the ring. Jack was furious, but his anger turned to fear when he heard that Steve DeColt had been tagged in! 'The Outsider' beat Jack up for a couple of minutes, but then Ricky DeColt tagged HIMSELF in!! It was Steve's turn to be furious now, but watched on as Ricky hit his 'DeColt .45' to pick up the win!

Winners: Steve & Ricky DeColt
Rating: 91
Finish: 'DeColt .45' Super Kick


After the match, Steve and Ricky DeColt stared daggers at each other as their hands were raised by the referee...


They should have been happy that they won, and that was Ricky's argument... But Steve thought him tagging himself in was unnecessary...

As the argument got heated, Tim Westybrook slowly rose up from behind the larger DeColt brother: Steve...


Westybrook shoved Steve into his brother, and they collided heads!!

'The Iron Man' slid out the back door under the ropes as Steve and Ricky had to be separated by the referee...

At Glory next Saturday, Steve DeColt will team with the CanAm Blondes to take on Jack DeCoolt, Cameron Vessey and Christian Price...

'The Young Gun' Ricky DeColt will go 1 on 1 with Tim Westybrook!!


World's Most Wanted [def.] The Mavericks
Ernest Youngman [def.] Mark Griffin
Christian Price [def.] The Natural
Harrison Hash [def.] Solomon Gold
Aaron Andrews [vs] Sonny Wildside [vs] Sean Deeley ended in a draw
Steve and Ricky DeColt [def.] Jack DeColt and Tim Westybrook
