NWA Wildside returned
to the NCW Arena last for a taping that
two very solid hours of television.
Nothing that was off the charts
fantastic, but little to complain about
either. Hope to see more of Briscoe
Brothers vs. T-N-T, which was the best
match of the night. Probably the
biggest news was former World TV Champion,
Cru Jones; coming out on the short
end of a loser leaves town match. An
energetic crowd of 90 was in the house,
which was up from last time.
1) Derrik Driver & Jeremy V beat
Future Shock (Jay Freeze & Brandon
6:18. Driver hit a huracanrana on Freeze
almost right off the bat. Tag to V,
who got some offense on Future Shock.
Freeze turned the tide with a neat
hotshot maneuver on V. Future Shock
did a double team that finished with
Mr. Wrestling II kneelift by Freeze.
Future Shock kept the heat on V,
doubling behind ref Speedy Nelson's
back. Freeze got two with a vertical
suplex. V hit a dropkick that got the
crowd behind him. Nice tease of the
tag as V's desperate reach toward his
partner fell short when Freeze grabbed
a leg at the last instant. Future Shock
did a Rolling Thunder legdrop
(P)/slingshot senton (Freeze) combo.
Driver got the hot tag, but ended up
the receiving end of the Aftershock.
V foiled another double team attempt
Future Shock, setting Driver up for
a frogsplash pin on Freeze. A fine way
open the show. By a strange coincidence,
Freeze had posted his
dissatisfaction with Future Shock's
position in Wildside on their website
day before. Freeze has a valid point
in that Future Shock has shown a lot
improvement, without getting a shot
at moving up on the tag team ladder.
2) Rainman (with Jeff G. Bailey) beat
Rick Michaels by DQ in 3:35. This was
hot. Real good pop for "The Original
Chosen One" who had some new gear
OC1 emblazoned on the trunks. Michaels
got some quick offense with a high
knee and suplex. Michaels pursued Rainman
to the floor to brawl. Back on the
inside, Rainman hit a leg lariat. Michaels
fired back with three left hands.
Michaels took a boot to the face charging
into the corner. Bailey choked
Michaels from the floor. Rainman hit
a killer version of his Spinesplitta
(Sky High powerbomb). They wound up
on the floor just slugging each other
the face like it was 1980's Memphis.
Michaels shoved ref Andrew Thomas, who
called for the DQ. Fans yelled bullshit.
Michaels and Rainman told each other
to get fucked. Should make for some
3) Jimmy Rave beat "Mr. Delicious"
Jacey North to retain the NWA World
Heavyweight Title in 6:02. Overall,
this was a good match because it played
to the mat wrestling strengths of Mr.
Delicious, rather than his athletic
ability. It had been a while since Rave
got the strong pop for his entrance
that he did here. They went back and
forth with chain wrestling to start
things off. Mr. D dropped Rave with
a forearm to the back and followed with
a dropkick to the face for a near fall.
Delicious did a Bubba Bomb. Mr. D
used a version of Jinsei Shinzaki's
(Hakushi) Nirvana Strangle. Delicious
followed with a fireman's carry into
a gutbuster. Delicious did a move that
Gordon Solie used to call a side salto
for another near fall. Rave came back
with quick pinning combinations. Rave
blistered Delicious with chops and hit
some jarring clotheslines. Rave hit
a sitout gourdbuster for a two count.
Delicious planted Rave on the top and
did the Iconclasm. Mr. D missed on a
top rope splash. Rave got two with a
bridging German suplex. Rave hit a
spinning jackknife powerbomb for the
three count...and Mr. Delicious is still
the NWA Virginia Heavyweight Champion.
4) Caprice Coleman & Sweet Dreams
& Onyx & Kevin Hardner beat
Cru Jones (with
Destiny) & Malakai & Tony Mamaluke
& Lazarus (with Lisa) in 7:30. Stip
that the loser of the fall had to leave
Wildside. Lisa came out with a better
look and some serious attitude this
time. She got one woman so hot at her
that she carried it out into the parking
lot as Lisa was trying to leave.
Lazarus looked like a real natural as
a heel. Same look as his Dustin
character though, which was a surprise.
Coleman's new royal blue and silver
gear really works. He rudely interrupted
the football drill Jones was doing
with Mamaluke and Lazarus. Coleman and
Jones started it out. Fans chanted
"One Bad Homo" at Jones. Coleman
had his way with Jones, who bailed out
taking a dropkick. Mamaluke and Onyx
were next, with Mamaluke taking some
huge bumps. Onyx dropped Mamaluke on
his face out of a gorilla press. Onyx
gorilla pressed him again for a toss
over the top rope straight to the floor.
Brutal. Dreams briefly worked on Molokai,
and it was Harden vs. Lazarus.
Harden hit a belly to belly suplex and
a clothesline that had Lazarus begging
for mercy. Coleman took over on Lazarus,
hitting a sitout powerbomb. Lisa got
on the apron to distract, allowing Lazarus
to kick Coleman low. The heels
took turns beating on Coleman. Malakai
showed some good power moves. Malakai
attacked the babyface corner causing
the match to break down to an eight-way
brawl. In the turmoil, Coleman hit the
Thermal Shock on Jones for the win.
The postmatch saw Mamaluke lock Dreams
in a submission and hit his high angle
back suplex on Coleman. More of Mamaluke
vs. Coleman would be sweet.
5) Briscoe Brothers (Mark & Jay)
beat T-N-T (Todd Sexton & Tony Stradlin)
7:07. Great stuff while it lasted. They
cut it short on time due to a
miscommunication, so it sure left the
fans wanting more. The set a furious
pace in the opening minute, with Briscoes
getting the best of Stradlin. The
Arena was chop city on this night, as
Jay and Stradlin exchanged some stiff
ones. Stradlin appeared to get off balance
at one point for an accidental
potato shot on Mark. All four got into
it, as Mark knocked Sexton off the
apron with a kick and landed a springboard
plancha. Mark pulled Stradlin's
leg from the outside to set up Jay for
a legdrop two count. When Jay went for
a drop down, Stradlin followed suit
and punched him. Tag to Sexton, who
jawbreaker and got two with a dropkick
on Jay. Mark hit a springboard
dropkick for a near fall, the got another
with a high flying Flair knee. The
momentum shifted to T-N-T when Stradlin
shoved Jay right into a superkick
from Sexton. T-N-T got heat on Jay.
Tony hit a back elbow. Jay did a dragon
screw legwhip, but Sexton cut off the
tag. Jay got a sunset flip, but Sexton
made a tag. Jay hit a dropkick to the
shins. Stradlin cut off the ring again.
Stradlin hit a lightning fast powerslam
for a near fall. Stradlin whipped Jay
hard into the buckles. Jay countered
a superkick with a fireman's carry into
a sitout facebuster. Jay made the tag
and Mark came flying off the top with
kick to Stradlin's knee. Mark planted
Stradlin with a brainbuster. Mark hit
an enzuigiri and went for a leglock
submission that was broken up by Sexton.
Stradlin used a low blow on Jay. T-N-T
destroyed Jay with an incredible
double team with Sexton locking on the
tarantula on one side of the ring,
while Stradlin came from the opposite
apron with a Van Terminator dropkick.
Just as T-N-T was setting up for another
double team, Lost Boyz appeared on
the entrance ramp. Mark took advantage
of the distraction to surprise Sexton
with a roll up.
6) Tank vs. Malakai went to a double
DQ in 4:43. Least interesting match
the night. Malakai is reminiscent of
Power Plant trainees, he's got the size
and the look, but his ringwork lags
behind. Malakai controlled the first
minutes. He needs to lay those punches
in with authority. Tank came back with
a Russian legsweep. Malakai didn't get
off his feet much for Tank's
suplexes. Tank hammered Malakai HARD
on a senton splash. Tank dumped him
and went for a chair. Tank nailed Malakai
with chairshots to the back.
Malakai came back with a chairshot of
his own and tossed Tank into the rail.
Ref signaled for the DQ as they continued
to battled on the outside. Tank
suplexed Molokai on the floor and wailed
on him with chairshots as they
headed up the ramp.
7) The Rage (Scott Cage & Mike
Pittman) beat G-Rated (Kid Xtasy &
in 8:23. Fast-paced match filled with
spots galore. Not the greatest
psychology but lots of fun. It was Xtasy
and Cage with the chain wrestling
that has become a staple in Wildside
lately. It ended in an exchange of
pinning combinations. Pittman and Kool's
each used their quickness to cause
the other to miss moves. Pittman scored
with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Cage
used his partner's uranage buttbuster
on Kool. G-Rated came back with a
double hiptoss on Cage. Pittman got
near falls on Kool with a moonsault
Northern lights suplex. Xtasy made a

clothesline off the top. G-Rated put
the heat on Pittman. Xtasy used the
Unprettier. G-Rated did their drop toehold/facebuster
to the knee combo.

450 splash to make the hot tag. Cage
cleaned house on Xtasy. Kool pulled
Pittman out to break up Rage's finisher.
They did a series of dives. Xtasy did
a plancha. Cage followed with twisting
springboard plancha. Kool hit a corkscrew.
Pittman did a springboard tope
that was pretty awesome. Back inside
the ring, Cage did a rocker dropper
Kool for a near fall. Xtasy hit the
Chalupa Crunch on Cage for another near
fall. Pittman did the sitout uranage
buttbuster on Xtasy. Kool made the save
and hit and up and over inverted X factor
on Pittman. Xtasy went to the top
and took one of those insane crash and
burn bumps to the floor that he is
noted for. Rage won it with their nagasateru
neckbreaker finisher, with
Pittman coming off the ropes for the
neckbreaker. The newly formed team of
"Outlaw" John Dalton and Big
Henry Hoss attacked Rage and destroyed
Hoss hit a slice 'n dice elbow drop
on Pittman. Rage had to be helped to
back by security.
8) David Young beat Dagon Briggs (with
Seven) in 5:08. Match was Ok. Really
just there to get Young a clean win
and get on to the postmatch angle. Briggs
was in from IPW with Seven, who is Fluff
Dupp in TNA. Briggs said he came to
Wildside for some competition. Young
went right to work with swinging
wheelbarrow facebuster, a pair of clotheslines

on the apron to distract Young, giving
Briggs a chance to land a double ax
blow to the back. Briggs got near falls
with a rolling neckbreaker and a leg
lariat. Seven choked Young while the
fans chanted "she's a whore tramp."
Young fired back with hard slaps before
taking a big flying bump into the
buckles. Briggs worked over Young's
hamstrings, even throwing in a quick
spinning toehold. Young hit an enzuigiri,
followed by a Shining Enzuigiri.
They countered back and forth, leading
to the inevitable spinebuster finish.
Iceberg hit the ring pasting Young
with chairshots to the back and head.
Iceberg squashed Young with TWO Ground
Zero splashes. Young had to be helped
to the back. It looked like Bailey's
health might be in jeopardy with the
he was having difficulty controlling
Iceberg. Bailey pulled out the veggie
peeler, He appeared to put Iceberg in
a bizarre trance that soothed the
9) Jeremy Lopez beat Slim J to retain
the NWA Wildside Junior Title in 8:43.
J made a good showing in his first shot
at a title. Crowd was pulling for J,
as Lopez has got to be the heel in this
building. J went hold for hold with
Lopez, who got frustrated and took a
powder. J faked a dive and pulled on
crotch. "What the hell is that?"
said Lopez as they went nose to nose.

more frustration by switching hands

Applause for J as he was lead away in
handcuffs. Face turn in the offing?
10) Adam Jacobs beat John Phoenix (with
Jeff G. Bailey) by DQ to retain the
NWA Wildside Heavyweight Title in 10:50.
The main event was meeting of the
former partners in Suicidal Tendencies.
They worked a really good match here.
It's just that at this stage, Jacobs
doesn't have babyface charisma close
the level he had as a heel. Phoenix's
flying moves looked great. Jacobs
charged the ring to launch a heated
exchange. Jacobs hit a huracanrana and

neck. Phoenix hit a moonsault for a
two count. At eight minutes in, Phoenix
dropped his head and took a
superkick. Both men down. Jacobs made
the comeback. He got Phoenix in the
tree of woe for his trademark baseball
slide/dropkick. That was good for a
near fall. Phoenix caused a Jacobs crotch
job on the top. With his height and
flexibility, Phoenix was able to land
kicks to the face of Jacobs while
standing. Phoenix tried to climb, so
Jacobs shoved him off, with Phoenix
