EPW set a new attendance record Saturday night with a crowd of around 140 in the building, and they were treated to a great show!
The opening match was a battle royal to crown the first ever EPW Internet Champion. Participants were "Monkey Boy" Danny Morris, Chazz, Tysin Starr, Barney, "Big Daddy" Nino, & David Andrews. Winner and new Internet Champion is Tysin Starr.
In an inter-gender match between two wrestlers making their EPW debut, Diabla defeated Drew Dice.
In a fan's lumberjack strap match, Robert Rose defeated Jay Webster. Rose was thrown out of the ring several times and the lumberjacks did not touch him. Jay Webster, however, was out of the ring numerous times and the 12 fans who were selected to be lumberjacks really worked him over. He'll be feeling that for a few days. One of them was using a strap that was 8 feet long, lol....
Mason defeated EPW newcomer Drew Haskins.
Buzz Harley cheated his way to victory over his former partner, Blade, by using brass knucks.
"Boogie Woogie Boy" Gary Valiant (W/Ms. Boogie) & Bitty Little defeated PHAT Foundation in a wild match. Great match!
EPW Tag Team Champions Pain, Inc. (Izzy Rotten & Brett Michaels) w. Nathan Lee cheated their way to victory over Sons of the South ("The Future" Chris Styles & Josh Matthews) to retain the belts.
EPW Champion Cassanova Kid defeated Tojo Yamamoto, Jr. w/Diabla. Very good match.
Main event was a falls count anywhere match between Pure Destruction (Cody & Brody Hawk) & Kross. The match started out as a two on one handicap match, PD vs. Kross, since Kross' partner, JR Mauler, was not there. PD absolutely demolished Kross, until Bonecrusher finally came to the ring to be Kross' partner. The match ended with controversy. Cody & Bonecrusher were fighting in the ring. Brody & Kross were fighting outside the ring. Referee KC was outside the ring and made the 3-count when Kross pinned Brody. In the mean time, referee Chris P. Fries had come to the ring, and made the 3-count when Cody pinned Bonecrusher. So we had a double pin situation. One referee declared Kross & Bonecrusher the winners. The other referee declared PD the winners.
Like I said, this was one great show! The 140 fans who jammed the building got their money's worth plus a lot more.
EPW will return to action this Saturday night in Booneville at the EPW Arena on Hwy. 145. Bell time is 7:00 p.m. Always expect the unexpected at EPW!

----Good to see this group drawing better than average. Gary Valiant is probably bringing in some of the crowd - especially if they are advertising. Some other names such as PD, Rotten, Bitty and "Sons of the South" are not going to hurt either...Internet champion?? Are they going to put the matches online so people can see them??
