Of course, Yabo quickly became the crowd favorite to win the match, and his eclectic wrestling style mixing with comedy proved to be hard for the other 3 to anticipate or defend against. Newcomer Colin Smith also had an impressive SSW debut during this match, showing that he would be a force to be reckoned with as he pursued the “interim” championship. But, in the closing moments of the match, Jason Parks would pull out an under-handed victory, pinning Colin Smith while using the ropes for leverage, outside the view of the referee. Thus, the new “Interim” SSW Lightning Division Champion would be crowned in that of Jason “JP” Parks.
Up next would be the first of two matches in Bracket 4 of the 2014 “Lords of the Ring” tournament. Making his SSW debut, “Shogun” Chris Logan would take on “The High Priest” William Jacobs. Although Jacobs would make a valiant effort to pull out the victory in this match, Logan proved to be an over-whelming force, and thus, he would be victorious and advance in the tournament.
The second “Lords of the Ring” tournament match would then take place, with Matt Dewar taking on Anthony Antonelli. This was another great tournament match, between two pure athletes in a highly technical and impressive match. But, in the end, Anthony Antonelli would use his experience the best Dewar and advance to the Semi-Final round of the “Lords” tournament.
Up next would be the “War to Settle the Score”, where Ruff Crossing & Scott Spade (”Noise, Booze, & Tattoos”) would take on Ryan Kross & Jeff Luxon (”The East-West Express”), with the winning team earning a title shot against Dave Rydell & Calvin Beckham in October. In this final confrontation between these two teams, “The Express” would be victorious, and “NBT” looking to be on the rocks. After the match, Scott Spade appeared to blame Ruff Crossing for their loss, and he left the ring refusing the shake hands with his apparently “former” tag team partner. Ruff looked dejected at what had happened, as he too left the ring.
It would then be time for the Main Event, the “Best in the Midwest” 4-on-4 Elimination match, where Devin Diamond would lead his team of Justice Jones, Dave Rydell, and Calvin Beckham, against the team of Vic Capri, Marshe Rockett, Pauly Thomaselli, and Remy Rainz, with ownership of SSW and the SSW title on the line. In a shocking twist, shortly into the match, Devin Diamond would eliminate Pauly Thomaselli, setting Team Capri at a dis-advantage. Marshe Rockett would later fall prey to Justice Jones, and also be eliminated. But, Vic can Remy would hold the line for SSW, eventually eliminating Beckham, Rydell, and Devin from the match. The match would conclude after a flurry from Vic and Remy, leading to Remy pinning Justice Jones to win the match, and thus the SSW Championship returning to Vic Capri!
Unfortunately, Vic’s title reign would end up being the shortest in SSW history, as his former partner, Pauly Thomaselli, would come to the ring immediately after the match and demand his title match that he had been waiting nine months to get. RJ Daniels pleaded with Pauly to wait until the next event, but, Vic agreed to the match and handed the belt to RJ. So, the match was on, and a well rested Pauly Thomaselli was able to quickly defeat the exhausted Vic Capri to become the new SSW Champion, much to the shock and disgust of the fans who moments earlier celebrated Vic’s title win.
