NWA Wildside results
January 1, 2005
Cornelia, Ga. at NWA Wildside Arena
By Larry Goodman, PWTorch.com correspondent


There's nothing like a hot show in front of an SRO crowd to boost the morale of a wrestling company. NWA Wildside's Christmas Chaos was just that.

Chaos '04/05 drew the largest house Wildside has seen since the Chaos show two years ago. The building was packed in at over 200, such that they had to turn a few people away.

It will rank as one of the best top to bottom major shows Wildside has produced.

New Jack interrupted Dan Wilson's (sporting psychedelic red highlights in his Rip Van Winkle beard) opening to the show. Jack made a complete babyface entrance and the crowd response was likewise. Jack burped into the mic. Said he started drinking 25 hours ago and just couldn't stop. Jack mentioned how the charges being dropped in Jacksonville made him feel like OJ. "I can stab people and get away with it." Jack alluded to his Wildside appearance last January where he said 2004 was going to be it for him. Jack said the retirement party with "midgets running around buck naked" was all set. But Bill Behrens had advised Jack that he was just fed up with the business and needed to take some time off. Not to find himself. "If I want to find myself I just look in the mirror." Jack said his road trips and his time in the slammer brought him to the conclusion that it wasn't time yet. Jack promised that he would be showing up on a wrestling television show in the near future. Jack showed that his clawed knucks were down to two blades because "I left one in that motherf*cker in Jacksonville." Jack promised that when he did a match, the blood would be running out of the ring. "I'm gonna stick the sh*t outta somebody again. Welcome to 2005."

(1) Alabama Attitude (Adam Roberts & T. C. Carnage) & Urban Assault Squad (Shadow Jackson & Nemesis & Jacey North) & Matt Sells defeated Skeeter Frost & Sweet Dreams & Jay Fury & Nick Halen & Weapons of Mass Destruction (Biohazard & Rampage) in 12 man elimination match (10:10). This incredible heat for the match overcame a multitude of sins to make it an effective opener. The workers had to be geeked up by the crowd. The sight of North decked out in a Ron Artest jersey was hilarious. It looked like it was going to be 6 on 5, until "Friday night superstar" Matt Sells came out and decided that the heels needed his help. Halen immediately pinned Sells with a reverse DDT. North eliminated Halen with a Triple H facebuster into a DDT. The spot where Fury was supposed to pin North got botched when Nemesis entered too soon. Fury improvised with a standing moonsault to eliminate North. WMD did the Hart Attack on Nemesis. Nemesis pinned Rampage with the help of Jackson. Frost and Carnage lit each other up with chops. Frost was way over with the crowd. Carnage's chest was split open like Flair's used to be after his matches with Ronnie Garvin. Roberts shoved Frost off the top to thwart a springboard move. Unfortunately, Frost broke his collarbone on the landing and lay there until Roberts pinned him. Dreams did a torture rack into a tombstone piledriver to pin Nemesis. Roberts hit his fireman's carry flapjack to pin Dreams. Biohazard pinned Jackson with a fisherman suplex. It was down to Alabama Attitude vs. Fury and Biohazard. Attitude got heat on Fury, who eventually hot-tagged Biohazard. The crowd groaned and booed when Biohazard was eliminated with the Attitude Adjustment. Fury got in a hot 1 on 2 sequence, pinning Roberts with a facebuster variation. But Carnage caught Fury with a chokebomb for the win.

(2) Caprice Coleman beat Jeff Lewis (with Al Getz) in 9:17. Good match. Coleman was feeling it. The pop for Coleman's entrance was surprisingly weak. Lewis did the whiny complainer deal which drew the classic Wildside "wimp" chant from the crowd. Lewis lost his cool after Coleman dropped him on his face. Lewis took his lumps and bailed out. Coleman did a Silver King style baseball slide that was very cool. They fought on the outside. Coleman tossed a drink in Lewis' face. Coleman reentered with a springboard missile dropkick for a near fall. Lewis turned the tide with a lariat. Instead of the standard sunset flip-clothesline cutoff spot, both men ducked clotheslines and Lewis hit a back suplex. Coleman made the comeback, but Lewis blocked the Thermal Shock. Coleman hit a beautiful twisting springboard lariat. Coleman tried for the Thermal Shock again, but Lewis countered with a neckbreaker for a near fall. Lewis went for his Final Curtain finisher, and Coleman countered with the Comatoser to score the pin.

(3) Zero X beat Mike Posey in 4:33. X smacked Posey in the face. They were off and running with Posey in command. Some of his stuff looked good. Some didn't. Salvatore Rinauro showed up at ringside. Rinauro locked hands with X in an attempt to block a sunset flip, but Destiny ran in and grabbed Rinauro. X hit a waterwheel slam, but Posey got a foot on the ropes. Destiny lead the cheers for Posey's comeback. Posey hit a JYD style powerslam. Rinauro shoved Posey off the top rope and X covered for the 1..2..3. Postmatch saw X and Rinauro humiliate Destiny by forcing her to assume the center snap position. "The All Star" Cru Jones came to the rescue of his former cheerleader/valet. Destiny gave Rinauro a low blow and Jones laid him out with a DDT.

(4) Todd Sexton beat Jeremy V via submission to win the World TV Title in 11:50. Sexton got somewhat of a cool heel response from the crowd. No traditional heel heat at all. Al Getz came out to observe. V wrestled. V connected with blistering chop and Sexton took a powder. They fought back to the dressing room. Sexton superkicked V at ringside and followed with a swinging neckbreaker on the floor. Sexton set out to destroy V's neck. Sexton applied the Mutalock but V made the ropes. Sexton hit a jumping piledriver for a long two count. V made the comeback. He hit the VKO and went up for the 450 splash. No water in the pool. Sexton locked in the Sexton Stretch. A good portion of the crowd was calling for the tap. V wouldn't give. From there, each guy tried to beat the other guy with their own move. Sexton tried for the VDT. V blocked it, so Sexton went to back to his own playbook with the Gamebreaker for a near fall. V crotched Sexton on the top and returned the favor with a top rope Gamebreaker for a near fall. Sexton hit the VKO. He went for the VDT again, but V countered with the sharpshooter. Getz distracted the ref, who didn't see Sexton tapping. Sexton hit a swinging neckbreaker on the title belt. Sexton applied the Stretch and V tapped.

Rinauro entered with Jimmy Rave for the 3 way. Rinauro sang the worst rendition of "The 12 Days of Christmas" in history. When he got up to "5 running knees, 4 Rave Clashes, 3 Guys That Totally Rule, 2 Junior Titles and a plane ticket to Italy," the crowd drowned him out with a "shut the hell up" chant.

(5) Jason Cross (with Jeff G. Bailey) beat A.J. Styles and Jimmy Rave (with Rinauro) in a three way (16:25). The pop for Styles' entrance left no doubt about what drew the crowd. This is the house that Styles built. Cross was the tweener. Rave was pure heel. The opening minutes saw Styles get some great 1 against 2 bursts of offense. Rave and Cross would eventually get control and end up fighting amongst themselves. Styles caught Rave with a forearm as he came through the ropes and gave him vicious whip into the rail. Cross did a CORKSCREW DIVE OVER THE FREAKIN' RINGPOST. Day one and I've already seen the most psychotic dive of 2005. Back inside, Rave threw a chop that exploded on Cross' chest. Styles DDTed both of their asses for two counts. The thing about Styles in this match was how he got over with flawless execution of fairly basic moves. Rave broke up a Styles Clash attempt on Cross. Rave hit a shoulder mounted Cross with a tornado DDT and did the Disco 2000 on Styles for a near fall. Cross took over. He hit the reverse enzuigiri on Styles and the Triple Cross on Rave. Styles foiled the Cross brainbuster. Cross hit the BEST DAMN BRAINBUSTER IN NORTH AMERICA on Rave but Styles was there to break up the pin. Styles hit an awesome spiral backbreaker. Cross tried for the Clash, but Styles countered with a huracanrana. Rinauro came flying in to break up a Styles Clash on Rave. Styles clotheslined him and tossed him over the top onto Bailey. Rave rolled through on a sunset flip and hit the knee for a great false finish. Styles was set to give Rave the Clash when Cross nailed Styles with a flatliner and pinned him. Excellent match within the limitations of the three way format. It just didn't have the drama of a Styles/Cross showdown.

Intermission.

Bailey opened the second half by running down the Cornelians. Bailey called for a warm body to answer Mikal Adryan's open challenge. They were not happy to see Murder One come down the ramp.

(6) Mikal Adryan (with Jeff G. Bailey) beat Murder One in 8:26. Surprisingly good match in a very difficult position on the show. M1 opened with an exploder suplex. Brutality ensued at ringside. The crowd was solidly behind M1. A fan called for M1 to use The Pounce. M1 used a devastating backdrop on the ramp instead. Adryan gave M1 a vicious shot into the announcer's booth. M1 used a springboard dropkick through the ropes called the John Woo. M1 took a back breaking shot into the rail. Adryan suplexed M1 on the floor. Bailey taunted M1. "You should have stayed gone." Adryan wore M1 down with repeated covers. M1 hit the Blazin' Lariat. He had Adryan up for the Zoolander when Rainman and Azrael ran in to distract. Adryan's Mafia kick didn't fully connect but it went for a near fall. Adryan gave M1 Assisted Suicide for the pin.

(7) Fast Eddie beat Slim J to retain the NWA Wildside Junior Title in 12:56. This was a great match. Eddie is turning into a Junior division version of Samoa Joe, as his title reign has surpassed the one year mark. Besides, you've got to love those tights with the dice and playing card design. Strong pop for J. Referee Justin Roberts sent Rinauro to the back. Eddie got in a quick double stomp and applauded himself. Eddie pie faced J. Eddie paid dearly for it. J was all over Eddie's arm. J did the double stomp elbow drop. Eddie blocked the 360 ace crusher and hit a wheelbarrow suplex for a near fall. Eddie hung J in a variation of the Widow's Peak. J got a ropes break. J used to ropes to pull himself up and propel into a splash. Back and forth with big moves. Eddie did a spinning suplex. J did the top rope reverse DDT. Both down. J hit a double arm tornado DDT. J did a picture perfect moonsault block off the top turnbuckle. Eddie used Canadian backbreaker style rack drop. J hit the 360 Ace crusher and Eddie barely kicked out in time. J planted Eddie on the top rope for the Anger Management. X ran out to interfere. Eddie nailed J with the Russian Legsweep from Hell and that was that. I think a lot of people expected J to go over.

(8) Three Guys That Totally Rule (Salvatore Rinauro & Seth Delay & Zero X) beat Iron Saints (Vito & Sal & Junior Thomaselli) in 10:39. No rest for the wicked, as Rinauro made his fourth appearance of the night. This was X's debut match as a member of Three Guys. There's five of them now. It was six way action during the opening minutes with each member of Saints getting a chance to shine at center stage. Junior (Brandon) hit a brainbuster and floated over for a near fall. Saints went for the rocking horse/top rope double stomp devastation but Guys had it scouted. Rinauro and X did a Doomsday Device. Guys got heat on Sal, who hung two of them out to dry on a tandem dropkick and then leveled them with a dual lariat. Vito took over. X made a blind tag and missile dropkicked Vito. It was heat on Vito, until Delay's moonsault landed on Junior's waiting knee. Junior spinebustered X. Vito and Sal hit the rocking horse/double stomp on X. But Junior stunned his brothers by making the save. Rinauro pinned Sal with an inverted suplex. Good although not at the level of their match at Fright Night.

(9) Onyx beat Ray Gordy (with Al Getz) to retain the NWA Wildside Heavyweight Title in 9:08. Gordy's arrogance reached new heights with this ring entrance. The power of Onyx ruled until the 3 minute mark. That's went Getz got in the act with a low blow. Gordy worked the back. Gordy was really unloading on the kicks to the spine. Gordy went for a guillotine choke out. Onyx backdropped Gordy to break it but missed with a swinging neckbreaker. Onyx used a Last Rites to start a comeback. It was one of a number of times on this show where a new and unexpected move appeared. Gordy blocked the Blackout and hit a fisherman suplex. Speedy Nelson counted three. Gordy thought he had won the match, but it was Onyx that had gotten a shoulder up. > Weird crowd response to Onyx here. Not much pop for his entrance, way into to him during the body of the match and then, almost no pop when he was announced as the winner.

(10) Tank & Iceberg beat Pomp & Circumstance (Ace Rockwell & Shaun Tempers with Al Getz) and The NWA Elite (Azrael & Rainman with Jeff G. Bailey) to win the NWA Wildside Tag Team Titles in a three way elimination match (18:45). This was insane violence that was totally beyond ref Andrew Thomas' control. At least he didn't puke this time. It really sucked to be Rockwell. He got the holy hell beat out him. Tank suplexed Iceberg onto Tempers. They compressed Rockwell with a half ton sandwich spot. Tank tried to cave Rockwell's face in. Iceberg turned his attention to Azrael with a flying headbutt to the nutsack. Rainman took punishment from P & C. It turned into the unofficial hardcore match for the evening. Iceberg, Tank and Rainman all ended up busted wide open when a set of sick spiked-with-nails knucks came into play. Iceberg did a double vertical suplex on P & C. Bailey jumped on Iceberg's back. Iceberg splashed Rainman with Bailey riding on his back. Azrael put a claw hold on Iceberg while wearing the knucks, so that the nails were imbedding into Berg's forehead. Rockwell spinebustered Rainman but couldn't convert on the Flagrant Foul. P & C were eliminated at 13:57 when Rockwell tapped out to Rainman's Hillside Strangla. Getz Enterprises ended up 0 for 3 on the evening. Tank brought a ladder in. It also sucked to be Rainman. Tank whipped Rainman into the ladder. Iceberg carved on him with his veggie peeler. Tank took a cannonball bump into the ladder. Azrael put the ladder on top of Tank and did a masochistic kneedrop onto the ladder. Tank wasted Rainman with the chokebreaker. Bailey tried to use the powder but it ended up in Azrael's face. Tank and Iceberg pinned Azrael with the slice n dice legdrop.

Postmatch, The Elite blamed Azrael for screwing up. The lights went out.

Lights on and Gabriel was in the ring with a chair. He took out Adryan. Crowd chanted "Lost Boys." Azrael turned on Rainman. Lost Boys gave Rainman the Time Warp for old times sake. They superkicked Bailey. The slimeball attorney was on his hand and knee. Lost Boys connected with a double baseball slide on Bailey for a great show closing pop. The Lost Boys music played as the former partners reunited.

NOTES: The status of Bill Behrens in regards to TNA and WWE will be determined within in the next week. A development deal between Behrens and WWE is still in the works but no details have been finalizedHardcore Hell '05 will be a two night show on 3/25 and 3/26 with appearances by Jay Lethal and Angeldust already announcedMatt Sydal, Delirious, and Daizee Haze return to Wildside on 2/5Jenny Taylor is coming in for the taping on 1/15The next big Friday Night Franchise show is Black Friday on 2/25.

QUICK TIPS FOR SENDING RESULTS

If you attend an arena event in future, either house shows or TV tapings, we encourage you to send us a report for publication. You can direct your reports to "matchresults" (@pwtorch.com).

We accept reports in any format, but if it's not much trouble, please format your report like you see above, with the matches numbered like this (1), (2), (3), with the opening line of each match paragraph stating who over whom (don't just say Wrestler A vs. Wrestler beat with the result listed later; instead, state up front who won so those readers who don't have time to read the entire report (i. e. their boss walks past their cubicle all the time looking over their shoulder) can at least quickly assess the results.

Also, please list tag teams using the "&" symbol as opposed to stating "and. " Reserve use of "and" when listing results in a three-way or four-way match where there are no teams (i. e. "Wrestler A over Wrestler B and Wrestler C in a three-way match") so it is easy to differentiate a handicap match from a three-way match.

If you know HTML coding for bolding, you can also bold out the first line of each match description. If you don't know HTML symbols, then we can add those ourselves.

Special thanks to everyone who helps us with reports on live events!
