'Jeopardy'... the pay-per-view formerly known as 'Jeopardy In June', was moved back to July in 2017 for NOTBPW's new look like up of events for the year... and tonight we have a packed show ahead of us... 'The Monster' Gargantuan will defend his NOTBPW Canadian Title, and his undefeated streak, in a Triple Threat Match against two legendary DeColt competitors: Steve DeColt and Jack DeColt!! If anyone can take 'The Monster' down, it's the two brothers... But are they on the same page...?! They don't exactly have a great recent history as friends... We will also see the 'Best in the World' Sean McFly wrestle his final match in NOTBPW... But before we get to those two huge Main Events, we had a packed under card... Including the opening six-man tag team match!!
Winners: Sonny Wildside, The Natural & Solomon Gold
These six talented competitors had a back and forth battle here, with lots of near falls for both teams. The Ring Generals (Dean Waldorf and Marv Statler) used quick tags to keep a man fresh, while using Ernest Youngman as the powerhouse to keep their selected opponent in their corner. Their selected opponent was the least experienced of the three: Solomon Gold. The new tag team partner of The Natural was in trouble for a while, Youngman, Waldorf and Statler almost pulling some of his limbs from their sockets! He was finally able to tag in the veteran The Natural though, and then Sonny Wildside was also brought in by his teammate! Wildside was on fire tonight, and he kicked lumps out of all three of his opponents. In the end, The Natural sent Statler and Waldorf over the top rope. Youngman threw Natural into the ring post. And then it was Wildside's turn to dominate. He super kicked Youngman under the chin and stunned him, before heading to the top rope to hit his brilliant 'Fear Factor' finisher!
Finish: 'Fear Factor' (Moonsault Stomp)
Winner: 'The Ace' Aaron Andrews
Aaron Andrews has had mixed success levels in his short NOTBPW career; particularly in the 'big' matches, he's struggled to string victories together. Tonight he was up against a vicious fighter in 'Shooter' Sean Deeley, who has made life very difficult for all of his opponents in 2017. It could be argued that he has also
struggled to pick up wins in big matches. This one was as even as it could be in terms of nearfalls, but Deeley had the lions share of the offence for most of the match. Andrews withstood a barrage of abuse, and was eventually able to hit his 'Flying Body Press' from the top rope to pick up the win!
Finish: 'Flying Body Press'
Our next match was the 'Open Challenge Match'... The challenge was set by 'The Iron Man' Tim Westybrook, who headed to the ring first, waiting for his mystery opponent to be revealed... Rumours have been swirling all week about who might accept the challenge... The front runners were 'Poison' the man formerly known as Joey Poison, who will make his long-awaited return to action after a serious injury very soon... The two recently advertised Mexican Megastars, who will also debut with NOTBPW soon... And Wade Orson... The young Brit had a great victory over Lord James King on Championship Wrestling this week...
But nobody could have predicted the man that DID come out!!! Former two-time NOTBPW Tag Team Champion, and a former Ed Henson Memorial Tag Team Cup Winner... Everyone thought he'd taken some time off when his tag team partner got hurt, but THRILL SEEKER only took one month off TV following Jacob Jett's career threatening injury!! Tonight, he was ready to make a huge impact!!
Winner: 'The Iron Man' Tim Westybrook
Thrill Seeker was very impressive tonight, despite being up against a man that outweighs him by 80lbs! Tim Westybrook's reach advantage was also key in the opening stages, as numerous lock-ups ended with the big man in control, and fist fights also weren't productive for Thrill Seeker. His only choice was to stick and move, and he began delivering low kicks to Westybrook's hamstrings. Westybrook didn't know what to do to handle the stinging strikes. He could barely stand up after Seeker got to double figures, but he was still able to deliver a brutal lariat! Seeker did a backflip and landed on his front, but both men fell to the floor. From then on, it was a close match. Both men hit offence, and were able to create chances to win the match, but Seeker had the wind knocked out of him by another lariat, and then unfortunately walked onto a 'TNT Whirlwind' and was pinned. Tim Westybrook knew he'd been in a fight though!
Finish: 'TNT Whirlwind' (Deep Six)
In the absence of Dan DaLay... his tag team partner Derek Frost and his son Robin DaLay headed to the ring together... The veteran Frost grabbed a microphone, and told the fans that with DaLay's injury, the tag team Bad Reputation were OUT of the Tag Team Title Match against Cameron Vessey and Christian Price... But... Frost HAD lined up a replacement team... It'll be Robin DaLay, teaming up with an old friend from Developmental, known simply as 'Logan'...!!
Not much is known about the 'Identity' of the 'Intrepid' youngster, who strolled to the ring with a big grin on his face... He climbed in and shook Derek Frost's hand... before embracing Robin DaLay as if they were brothers!! The two youngsters (DaLay is only 20 and Logan is 24) then got ready for the biggest match of BOTH of their careers... The NOTBPW Tag Team Titles are one of the most prestigious tag team championships in the world currently... Standing in their way tonight, were the former Champions: Cameron Vessey and Christian Price...
Winners: and NEW NOTBPW Tag Team Champions: Cameron Vessey & Christian Price
Robin DaLay and his tag team partner Logan were a threat tonight. The two youngsters gave a good showing of themselves against the very experienced Cameron Vessey and Christian Price. DaLay lived up to his surname tonight, using his power and explosiveness to keep Vessey and Price at bay. Cameron Vessey knows a thing or two about being a second generation star though, and he used dastardly, underhanded tactics to gain an unfair advantage over DaLay! From then on, Vessey and Price dominated the match, and kept DaLay in their corner. Logan was desperate to get in the ring, and he eventually got his chance. He exploded into life and changed the momentum of the match! It didn't take long for him to run out of steam though, and Vessey and Price took control again, 2 on 1! Robin DaLay was absolutely no help, and neither was the 'cheerleader' Derek Frost, as he was jumped out of nowhere!!! Mutant and Aldous Blackfriar arrived on the scene, and Frost was taken out!!! Logan then walked onto a 'Stud Stopper' Stunner from Christian Price and was pinned!
Finish: 'Stud Stopper' Stunner
Robin DaLay, Logan and Derek Frost were easy pickings for Aldous Blackfriar and his 'muscle' Mutant... Cameron Vessey and Christian Price celebrated on the ramp, with Vessey sat down, his leg troubling him somewhat... Blackfriar and Mutant had already double teamed and taken out Frost, and then turned their attention to Robin DaLay... They slammed the youngster into the ring steps, before climbing slowly into the ring and circling the newcomer Logan... Aldous locked Logan in his 'Gloomweaver Clutch' (head squeeze) and squeezed the energy out of Logan... They left him lifeless in the ring, before walking off and stepping over Derek Frost's lifeless body too!!
Winner: 'Mainstream' James Hernandez
Undefeated. James Hernandez is undefeated in all matches since March of this year, except for the Super Slam Battle Royale! Four months, he's not lost a match, and he's looked very impressive in every outing. Tonight, the 'Mainstream' NOTBPW Television Champion was up against a much larger opponent in 'Mighty' Danny Cavanagh. Cav is a fan favourite too, but tonight the fans got on his back for the way he treated their beloved Champion. He didn't care, he was out to become Champion himself. Hernandez was on the back foot for most of the match, with the crowd getting restless in expectation of seeing a comeback, but the longer the match went, the more likely that comeback just wouldn't happen. In the end though, Cavanagh got a little too cocky, and allowed Hernandez to hit multiple super kicks to keep Cav at bay! Cavanagh was stunned, and it didn't take long for Hernandez's long-awaited comeback to be fully effective, when he hit his 'Apparition #14' Spear!
Finish: 'Apparition #14' Spear
Winner: 'The Best in the World' Sean McFly
Sean McFly headed out to the ring second here, in his final match in NOTBPW. He was wearing dark coloured jeans, with kneepads on the outside, and a tight black t-shirt with 'Best in the World' emblazoned across the front in white text! Edd Stone was in his wrestling gear, but this 'Montreal Street Fight' was never going to be a wrestling match! The bell rang, and McFly flew at Stone, taking him down with a double-leg, and then hitting him with multiple right hands! Edd Stone suffered a cut lip very early on in the match, following a forearm smash from McFly, and it was a brutal fight from then on. Stone attempted a few low blows, but McFly kept countering it, and attempted arm bar submission holds! But Stone was relentless in his efforts, and eventually found some success with a big low kick that the referee was furious about! He could do nothing though, because there were no rules, and as McFly writhed around on the floor, Stone went for the hardware! Tables, chairs, a baseball bat, and kendo sticks were all brought into play by the young Stone Brother, and he attempted to use them ALL on McFly!
Considering the fact that Sean McFly is Edd Stone's Brother-in-law, 'The Animal' treated him with a lot of disdain. Related or not, Edd had one thing in his mind tonight, making McFly bleed, and making him pay for what Edd sees as crimes against wrestling. As the 'Best in the World' McFly is able to adapt to most situations though. He countered a chair shot with a hard kick to Edd's left knee and set about trying to find weapons that he could wield himself. He finally found what he was looking for: A piece of 2x4 wrapped in barbed wire! But he wasn't finished there. He reached under the ring, and grabbed a cigarette lighter!! The bit of 2x4 must have been doused in petrol, because it went up in flash!! McFly nearly burnt his arm off, but he slowly climbed onto the apron, ready to climb in and confront Stone. But the crafty 'Animal' had grabbed a counter weapon: A fire extinguisher! He fired it at McFly, and blinded him, while putting the flaming 2x4 out! Stone attempted a spear through the ropes, but McFly JUST saw him coming, and managed to deliver a knee to the side of Stone's head! McFly grabbed his attacker in a front facelock. He then dropped backwards off the apron, and DDT'd Stone through a table!! The veteran landed hard himself, but he was able to roll an arm over onto Stone's chest, and the referee counted to three!!
Finish: DDT through a Table
Sean McFly's final match in NOTBPW, ended with a victory... An amazing performance from both men, but in the end a little bit of luck, and a little bit of 'right place, right time' handed McFly the win... He won't be on Championship Wrestling this week, but 'The Animal' Edd Stone will be, and there's no doubt he's going to be angry about how this went down... The question now is, who will he target next...?! Having forced both Duane Stone and Sean McFly out of the company, his mission is seemingly complete... But there has to be someone else in his sights...
Main Event time... A Triple Threat Match for the NOTBPW Canadian Championship... The undefeated Champion Gargantuan will defend against two DeColt brothers: Steve and Jack DeColt... In recent weeks, the two brothers have been in agreement that the best way to stop 'The Monster' is to team up, and take him out together... Just like the old days... 'The Outsider' and 'The Wild Man'... But how can they co-exist...?! It's been over fifteen years since they won the CGC Tag Team Titles together... Can they re-capture their chemistry for one night, and keep Gargantuan down for long enough to fight to the finish and have one of them become Canadian Champion?!
Winner: and STILL NOTBPW Canadian Champion: 'The Monster' Gargantuan
Everyone who enters the ring with 'The Monster' Gargantuan has a great plan, until they enter the ring with 'The Monster' Gargantuan. The DeColt brothers wanted to team up and take him out, but after a punch to Jack DeColt's nose, followed by a huge lariat to Steve DeColt, put the kibosh on any plan they had. For the next few minutes they didn't get a chance to work together. Gargantuan just went between one opponent and then the other, beating and clubbing them both to the ground. Eventually though, Steve DeColt rose up and began fighting back! He punched Gargantuan in the side of the head, he kicked 'The Monster' in his hamstring, and he chopped the undefeated Canadian Champion across the chest! Steve DeColt was in charge, but when he looked to Jack DeColt to get up and help him, 'The Wild Man' was down in the corner, clutching his mid-section after being drilled with a knee from Gargantuan. Steve needed some help, but he didn't get any.
With Steve DeColt laying into Gargantuan in the opposite corner, Jack DeColt looked hurt, but he somehow found the strength to leap up at the opportune moment and blast his brother in the back of the head! Jack then continued to 'play possum' on the outside of the ring, while Gargantuan regained his composure and entered into a fight with Steve DeColt. It looked like an even fight, but the crafty Jack DeColt was ready to pounce when he saw his opportunity again! He flew into the ring and chopped Gargantuan down at the knees, before delivering his patented 'End Of Days' finisher to Steve DeColt! Jack hadn't done nearly enough damage to Gargantuan though, and the big man lifted the former Canadian Champion up by his throat. Jack kicked and scratched, and managed to escape Gargantuan's grasp. However it wasn't long before Jack was back in 'The Monster's' death grip! Gargantuan hit a Chokeslam on Jack, ONTO Steve DeColt, and then threw Steve out of the ring. He waited for Jack to get to his feet, and then he popped him up in the air and delivered the unstoppable, unbeatable, 'Ultimate Backbreaker'!
Finish: 'Ultimate Backbreaker' (Military Press Drop onto Knee)
Outside the ring, Steve DeColt watched on as Gargantuan had his hand raised in victory... 'The Monster' remains undefeated since arriving in NOTBPW... and has once again been the thorn in the side of the DeColt Brothers... At Mid Summer Madness, Gargantuan defeated Steve DeColt, Ricky DeColt and Jack DeColt... Pinning Ricky... Tonight, with Ricky out, he defeated Steve and Jack... Pinning Jack... Steve DeColt may well feel aggrieved having not been pinned by Gargantuan himself... But tonight was just about being disappointed that he wasn't in the right place at the right time...

[OOC Thoughts on the Show, and the State of NOTBPW]
Well... What can I say about Jeopardy...?? It's been an interesting couple of months in charge of North of the Border Pro Wrestling. The roster is beefing up now, with three new signings ready to debut in the coming weeks, and some of the guys in 'Time Decline' are now gone... But injuries have ravaged my tag team division, so I thought I'd post this on the 'State of the Company'...
Tag Team Division: Following my idea to give the Titles to Edd Stone and Duane Stone, only to have them drop the Titles the following week due to splitting up, I then lost two members of two of my TOP Tag Teams: Jacob Jett of World's Most Wanted and Owen Love of the CanAm Blondes are both OUT for a long time... Still over six months... And then heading into this match for the vacant Titles, I lost Dan DaLay to a short term injury... So that's why his son Robin DaLay, and Robin's 'friend' Logan, stepped in... For now, Cameron Vessey and Christian Price will carry the division, beginning with a feud with my newest signings... You'll find out the identity of them soon, but it's safe to say I scoured the world for a team with 100 experience to help the division out...
The DeColts: It'll obviously be hard to not have the DeColt Brothers in the frame for the Canadian Title, but I have one more match in mind for Gargantuan... A 1 on 1 match for the Title with a very special stipulation... Against Steve DeColt... IF I decide to not let Steve win, I'm going to find it hard to keep him and his brothers away from the Title... I'm going to have to be creative with who they each feud with next... Ricky DeColt is still out 'injured' for now, but he's back soon...
Injury List: Ricky DeColt, Jacob Jett and Owen Love we know about... Trent Shaffer is also close to a return after being taken out by Gargantuan... And then there's Poison... He's back this week, and it's an interesting story behind his return... He debuted with us a little over a year ago, but picked up a major concussion in one of his first matches (he was undefeated at the time). He's missed over a year of action, and now the 40 year old is back... But will I be able to re-capture what he had when he debuted?! The way the roster has moved on in his absence means his popularity is only higher than a small handful of guys... One or two of the guys below him will have probably leapfrogged him soon too...
Best of the Rest: In terms of Title contenders that AREN'T Gargantuan or DeColts, there are a few names I'd like to see at the top of the company soon... Aaron Andrews and James Hernandez are two names that stand out to me... Both 31, and with the best years of their careers very much ahead of them, but both have also achieved a lot in their careers so far... I can't decide which one of them to push harder though!! Sean Deeley, Danny Cavanagh, Tim Westybrook and Thrill Seeker are propping up the Main Event in the Upper Mid Card for now... but all four are incredibly talented...
The Stones: Thanks to 'Time Decline', and retirements, I'm left with just ONE Stone Brother on my roster... 'The Animal' Edd Stone... Dan Stone Jr. and Jeremy Stone are retired... They can both still wrestle... But very sparingly... Duane Stone has left the company, and works for USPW as a Lower Mid Carder... Stone Brother-in-law Sean McFly followed Duane to USPW, but McFly will be one of their TOP draws... This leaves Edd... I had him lose to McFly at Jeopardy as a nod to how important Sean has been to NOTBPW... But who he feuds with next COULD play a major role in who I decide to push to the Main Event scene... It could even be Edd himself...
