Premiere Wrestling Xperience Results from Charlotte on April 17


Premiere Wrestling Xperience returned to Club Escapade in the Queen City of Charlotte on April 17 for the aptly titled 'What Lies Beneath'. This event saw partnerships broken, lines crossed, an X16 finals rematch, and a valiant challenge from a bonafide future World Champion. Let's take a look at the full recap from What Lies Beneath.

The Ugly Ducklings (Rob Killjoy & Colby Corino) w/ Lance Lude defeated The Independent Variable (Tracer X & Jett Black)

It is commonplace for every PWX show to start with a BANG! But this show started with a QUACK! Hundreds of thunderous quacks! The trio of Rob Killjoy, Lance Lude, and Colby Corino are making a splash in PWX and at April's event the "Quack Attack" was in full effect. A hobbled Lance Lude led Killjoy and Corino to the ring for tag team action in the PWX Juniors Division and the quacks were deafening as the crowd showered the three of them with rubber duckies. Standing across from The Ugly Ducklings were two phenomenal athletes in their own right, Tracer X and Jett Black and once again these four men showed that the Juniors Division will play a big part in the future of Premiere Wrestling Xperience as it is absolutely loaded with talent. The Independent Variable started out strong and made it difficult for Killjoy and Corino to keep their heads above water. X and Black went for a double dive to the outside but were met with a pair of thunderous kicks to the head which turned the tide of the match and allowed The Ducklings to get rolling. Corino nearly murdered Tracer X with the 'Quackalacky Cannonball' in the corner and The Ugly Ducklings followed up with 'The Flying V' (Angle slam variation and top rope double stomp) to pick up the win.

Ian Payne defeated 'Man Scout' Jake Manning via DQ

Young up and comer Ian Payne returned to PWX next for his first singles match but the young man caught The Man Scout on the wrong night to try and make an impression. Payne immediately picked up the scout manual and mocked Manning receiving a kick to the groin for his troubles as the referee immediately called for the disqualification but Jake was far from finished on this night. Manning hit Payne with a piledriver and security swarmed the ring and were quickly dispelled by The Man Scout who hit them all with piledrivers, finishing off the last two with his flatliner/DDT combo. The Man Scout then addressed the capacity crowd in Charlotte saying "The Jokes are over" Manning referenced War Games last month and going down a dark path, he talked about PWX management forcing him to walk away, the lack of honor in the current PWX World Champion John Skyler and Manning called out The Southern Savior. Jake then waited but the champion chose to stay backstage and Manning left saying "If words aren't working maybe actions will".

"The Modern Day Viking" Gunner defeated "The FN Machine" Brian Cage to retain the PWX Innovative Television Title

Lucha Underground Star Brian Cage made his long awaited Premiere Wrestling Xperience debut next in a 'battle of beasts' facing ITV Champion Gunner. Cage was very impressive in his PWX debut showing why he is known as one of the best big men on the independent scene today and he nearly became PWX ITV Champion on several occasions in his debut. Cage used his speed and agility advantage to throw the champion off balance but he also learned that in a battle of power "The Modern Day Viking" hits really hard as well. Cage impressed with some aerial offense as well as innovative power moves and in the end the ITV Champion perhaps felt the title slipping away and saw an opening to get a rollup and use the ropes for leverage pinning Cage to retain the title and gaining some much needed momentum following The Xperience's War Games loss last month at Rise of a Champion XI. Cage was certainly a tough challenge for the reigning ITV Champion, yet Gunner again was able to retain and you now have to wonder is Cage due a rematch? And if not who, if anyone can end the reign of Gunner?

The Revolt (Caleb Konley & Zane Riley) defeated An Officer and a Gentleman (Officer Dan Barry & "The Kentucky Gentleman" Chuck Taylor)

Everyone's favorite Kentucky Gentleman returned to PWX and brought along Officer Dan Barry for his debut, but the team was met with The Revolt were not only coming off a huge win at ROCXI in War Games, the two man team of Konley and Riley has been on quite the roll themselves lately. As you would expect these four had a lot of fun in this match which saw Taylor hit his "amazing" aerial offense (if you've never seen it you owe it to yourself to look it up) it also saw Zane Riley up the ante with a DOUBLE oil check on both Barry and Taylor. This one was not all fun and games though as Dan Barry showed off his wrestling skill and Konley who is obviously one of the better talents in the independents right now showed his versatility participating in some of the hijinks throughout the match as well. An Officer and a Gentleman always have a good time but they also proved to be a tough challenge for one of the better teams in Premiere Wrestling Xperience and nearly pulled off what would've been considered an upset but in the end Zane & Caleb picked up another tag team victory and further strengthened their case for a shot at the PWX Tag Team Championships.

Trevor Lee defeated "Bad Boy" Joey Janela

Back in 2012 Joey Janela made the trip from New Jersey alongside former PWX World Champion Rhett Titus and others from the northeast who made frequent appearances in Premiere Wrestling Xperience and at that time Janela was the young kid in the zebra tights, somewhat of a lackey to the other guys. Fast forward four years and Janela made his return to PWX and over the last four years he's become a bad, bad boy! Just ask him he'll gladly tell you, Janela has competed against some of the best the indies have to offer and appeared on shows with many legends and future stars while transitioning from "Zebra Kid" to The Bad Boy. Janela was originally scheduled to face Lance Lude of The Ugly Ducklings 1 on 1 but unfortunately Lude was injured the previous night, still the PWX faithful were treated to an excellent match as current TNA X Division Champion Trevor Lee made his return to square off with Janela. Lee had a great time as the last minute replacement to Lude entering the ring to Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off" and even dancing with PWX Official D.A. Brewer but once the bell rang it was all business and Trevor Lee can go with the best of them. Janela taunted and prodded at Trevor but it was Lee with some technical wrestling early frustrating The Bad Boy. Lee ramped his offense up going for the punt on the apron but Janela was one step ahead and avoided it to take control of the match, inside the ring Joey grounded Lee and tried to force the match to go at his pace but any opportunity Lee had to speed up the match he took it delivering vicious double stomp at one point that nearly put The Bad Boy away. Janela hit a couple of well­placed superkicks and went to the top but missed allowing Lee to again take control this time hitting the punt on the apron and Trevor finished off The Bad Boy with the package driver spoiling Janela’s return to PWX.

"The Southern Savior" John Skyler defeated Mason Maddox w/ THE Tommy Thomas to retain the PWX World Championship

Looking back to March at PWX's biggest show of the year, the 11th anniversary show Rise of a Champion Xi that show kicked off with a 6 man ladder match that was pure insanity! A contract that entitled the winner to a shot at ANY PWX Championship they chose hung from the ceiling of Brayboy Gym at JCSU and after a brutal matchup it was former ITV Champion Mason Maddox who took position of that contract but the question was "What do you do with such an opportunity?" Maddox took only about 3 weeks to make his decision and it was a big one! The Tommy Thomas announced on the PWX Facebook page that Maddox would challenge PWX World Champion "The Southern Savior" John Skyler and challenge him he did. One of the biggest fan favorites in the promotion, the PWX crowd came unglued as the challenger entered the ring. It ended up being a long night for Maddox, but a definite career defining one even in a losing effort, Effort being the key word there, The PWX World Champion controlled a majority of this match punishing the young challenger and verbally berating him encouraging him constantly to quit and give it up but there was ZERO quit in Mason Maddox as this was his moment and he was going to make the most of it. Skyler was relentless in his attack on the former ITV Champion rarely giving him a chance to catch his breath but Maddox continued to battle and came back with some offense of his own even getting a couple of near falls which frustrated the Champion who grabbed his PWX title but was interrupted by Thomas at ringside. Tommy asked Skyler to let him hit Maddox and take way his chance at the belt but when Skyler obliged Thomas' offer the 2015 manager of the year turned around and leveled The Southern Savior with the belt as Maddox crawled into position for the pin, 1,2,...Skyler barely kicked out! One last effort on the part of Maddox and Thomas and it wasn't quite enough as Thomas received a superkick from Skyler and The Champion turned and hit a Pedigree on Maddox to get the win and retain his PWX World Championship for the 336th consecutive day. The PWX World Champion took the microphone after the match and paid respect to his challenger though if you are familiar with The Southern Savior it didn't last long as he attacked Maddox and began kicking away until George South came in and got in the champion's face. Skyler backed off but then attacked the pro wrestling veteran which brought out 'Man Scout' Jake Manning with a kendo stick and the champion took off out of the venue. Manning stood in the middle of the ring primed for a fight and PWX Owner/CEO Brian Kanabroski and Executive Producer Patrick Price came to the ring, Price asked Manning to calm down and come to the back with them and they could talk about the possibility of a match with Skyler sometime in the future but also warned that if he didn't calm down they really didn't want to have to take action against The Man Scout. In the end it was Manning who took action and it was a BIG ONE! Jake clotheslined Price off the ring apron and grabbed Kanabroski hitting a rope assisted piledriver that folded the boss up like an accordion!!!

UPDATE: The Actions of 'Man Scout' Jake Manning following the PWX World Title Match at 'What Lies Beneath' have been met with an indefinite suspension by PWX Management.

Anthony Henry w/ Amber Young defeated "The Product" David Starr

The Lethal Lovers Anthony Henry and Amber Young have been on as big of a roll as anyone in wrestling lately, taking on all comers and putting up very impressive performances against some of the biggest names in the sport. The Lethal Lovers hit a speed bump last month at ROCXI in the form of CZW Star Drew Gulak who got a hard fought (and rare) win over Henry, the devious duo looked to get back on track in Charlotte but again a big test waited for them in "The Product" David Starr. Starr returned to PWX for only the second time since a very impressive run this past September in the X 16 Tournament where he not only put on great matches but built a big fan base amongst the PWX faithful. This was another in long line of excellent matches from Anthony Henry and The Product was a more than formidable opponent who may have ran Henry's losing streak to two if not for the late match shenanigans of the deviously wicked (yet highly capable) Amber Young. This was a true back and forth affair that had it all, the two started with some chain wrestling ending in a stalemate, transitioned into a battle of speed and strength. Starr went for a German suplex that Henry had well scouted, then Henry took the top rope and this time Starr avoided his opponent that's when the other half of the Lethal Lovers Amber sensed it was time to get involved and get involved SHE DID! Young immediately caught the eye of "The King of Taunts" David Starr who stopped Amber from slapping him and brought her into the ring and onto her knees as the crowd chanted Starr’s trademark phrase "Look at It" so Starr obliged the crowd giving Amber the opportunity to get up close and personal with The Product's Product in an unforgettable moment. This drew the attention of Anthony Henry who got between his woman and his opponent but as Starr threw superkick Henry ducked and Amber took the kick crumpling immediately which gave Henry the opportunity to unveil a devastating verte­breaker variation to get back on the winning track.

Cedric Alexander defeated Ethan Case

It has been seven months since the inaugural X16 Tournament where many lasting impressions were made but no one made more of an impression that the two finalists Ethan Case and Cedric Alexander, Case came out victorious against the self­proclaimed 'Best in the World’ on that night in Winston Salem, Alexander has been racking up wins since X16 and was looking to avenge his X16 loss at 'What Lies Beneath'. Prior to the match starting both men got into a battle during the introductions forcing Brett Wolverton to reintroduce them with different accolades several times which ended when Case asked to be announced as "The man who beat Cedric Alexander to win The X16 Tournament" a moment that amused Case but seemed to infuriate Alexander, probably not the best move on Ethan Case's part. Alexander took control early but Case showed his victory back in September was not a fluke taking everything the ROH superstar had and dishing some out of his own, Case went for the "Case Cutter" but Alexander had it well scouted avoiding the devastating finisher and landing some vicious strikes of his own. The pace continued to quicken and Alexander's athleticism was really on display in this one, along with his mean streak but Case continued to absorb the offensive attack and hit a dive as the two brawled around the ringside area. Back in the ring Alexander side stepped the lifting uppercut but Case connected with the "Case Cutter" and nearly picked up his second straight victory over the former PWX Champion. Alexander fired back hitting the C.O.D. and in the end Case went for a springboard cutter out of the corner and Cedric caught him hitting the Lumbar Check to pick up the win and avenge his X16 finals loss. Following the match Cedric spoke to the crowd very honestly saying he and Case were friends and that Ethan was one of the most talented guys in the locker room in a cool show of respect. Cedric himself has been on a major tear again recently in PWX showing why he is not only one of the best Indy Wrestlers in the world but a standard bearer for Premiere Wrestling Xperience for many years.

The Bravado Brothers (Harlem & Lancelot) defeated Country Jacked (Adam Page & Corey Hollis) to win the PWX Tag Team Championships

The rivalry between Country Jacked and The Bravado Brothers has been as heated as any rivalry in recent memory. Adam Page and Corey Hollis defeated Harlem and Lancelot Bravado at X16 back in September in a ultraviolent Street Fight that was pure chaos at The Benton Convention Center, the two teams continued to take any opportunity they could find to mix it up including last month inside the double cage at War Games but for the last 7 months The Bravados have been solely focused on getting a shot to regain the PWX Tag Team Championships. What Lies Beneath presented them that chance and it was to be their last chance at winning the gold and it seems Country Jacked entered the match with a game plan but it turns out so did their challengers. After battling for ten minutes or so Corey Hollis brought a chair into the ring, the tag champions were disqualified and they began to leave the venue with their titles intact and satisfied with the fact they would never have to deal with the brothers from Draper, North Carolina ever again. The "victory" celebration was short lived however as Harlem and Lancelot produced a contract drawn up following War Games that stated 'Should Country Jacked be disqualified the match would be restarted with any stipulation the challengers chose'. The Bravados announced the match would now be restarted with no disqualification and if any member of The Xperience interfered Country Jacked would lose the championships! Hollis and Page threw down their belts and rushed the ring but were met by a diving Harlem Bravado, and things got out of control very quickly (much like they did back in September) with Lancelot and Adam Page brawling in the ring and Harlem and Corey Hollis battling on the outside. A pile of chairs were thrown into the ring and a table was set up on the outside, Harlem Bravado climbed up on the partition but then upped the ante moving back to the bar and flew through the air driving Corey Hollis through the table!!! Inside the ring, Harlem joined his brother who was tying up Adam Page with his own bull rope and things got much worse from there for Page. The Bravados hit a 'Concerto' and proceeded to brutalize him with alternating chair shots, finally they buried Page under a mountain of chairs and delivered one last blow leaving Adam Page motionless and Harlem covered him as The Bravado Brothers made grandma proud once again in becoming two time PWX Tag Team Champions. The PWX faithful chanted "You deserve it" as Corey Hollis pulled himself from the wreckage of the table and joined his partner in the ring helping him to his feet then sending him right back to the mat after a kick to the groin!!!! Hollis screamed at the fans that he hated all of them and backed up his words with a gesture for each and every person in attendance before turning and leaving his former partner lying in the middle of the ring. A completely shocking turn of events to close out 'What Lies Beneath' as we have apparently seen the end of Country Jacked!! What does this mean for the future of The Xperience in PWX? What's next for Corey Hollis? Will Adam Page be back for retribution? This was an aptly named event as there was a whole lot lying beneath in PWX and the rest of the year should be very interesting as we see the fallout from What Lies Beneath.

The following was posted on The NWA Fan Site with the title "Throwback Championship Wrestling leaves the NWA".

I have gone into business with former NWA member Billy Wood of the UK, and we have acquired a series of exciting wrestling libraries from Japan, Europe & the states. We are all set to launch as an online subscription & Roku channel in June/July and will be showcasing all the old libraries plus looking at the right partners to be weekly/special event shows on the network too, their are earn out deals for each participant based on views so it’s another potential revenue stream. – Chris Lash

TCW promoter Chris Lash says Bruce Tharpe kicked him out of the NWA because he believes Lash's plan to launch the online subscription  service and Roku Channel puts him in direct competition with NWAClassics.com.

Lash will make a guest appearance on the May 3 Tipping Point podcast.

Carolina News, Notes & Analysis

From Jeff Richards:

The QUEENS and HER COURT -- Queens of Combat is returning to that lucky little town of Gibsonville, NC on Saturday May 21st for what you could call doubleheader action. There are two shows planned for that day with a 2 PM matinee and a 7 PM event. A special meet and greet VIP experience will be sandwiched in between the two cards. This is in response to a great turnout in Gibsonville on Friday March 18th that saw many new faces and bods in the area. The two show format was recently run in Gibsonville by CHIKARA, so Queens is hoping to duplicate that magic @ the Sportatorium.

Already announced as appearing are QOC Champion Taeler Hendrix. Tessa Blanchard (now booking out of Orlando, FL), Jessika Havok and Candice LeRae. Crowd favorite LuFisto and newcomer Nicole Savoy also are scheduled. Here is where it gets interesting: VIPS sit on the front row, enjoy a meal, and pose for an in-ring photo with LeRae. That ticket runs $81.79 after handling. and you will not be handled by the Queens of Court, I assure you. More economical are the other tickets in general admission which are $21.49 for each session. So, spend $42.98, and you are entitled to many matches and a whole day filled with fantasies.
