April 28th, 2002: PWF Northeast "Turbulence"
The PWF Northeast made a return to Plainfield, CT and the PWF NE Studios at the Loomis Arena with their event entitled “Turbulence”. The first announcement of the night was pertaining to the June 15th event for PWF Northeast. All three territories of PWF would be coming together in Rhode Island for “Convergence”. Wrestlers from PWF in PA, PWF Mid-south and PWF Northeast will be featured.
In the opening contest, “Big League” Brian Black took on Johnny Curtis. Curtis, once again impresses as one of the hottest athletes in the PWF Northeast. Brian Black grabbed Curtis for his full nelson slam finisher, but Curtis slipped out and rolled him up with a quick victory roll for the win. After the match “Big League” beat down Curtis and then got on the mic saying that Striker (who beat him in PWF Northeast last month) would be the next one to go down.
TJ Wyld came out for a Wyld-side interview segment. He brought out Emerald Fusion and talked to them about being cheated out of the titles last month at “Defiance”. Kid Krazy of the HCI and Zachary of the HCI Marketing Department interrupted and placed a challenge to Emerald Fusion. If they could beat Kid Krazy in two singles matches at “Turbulence”, they would get another tag title rematch at “Convergence”. If they lost EITHER match, they would not get another tag title shot while Krazy and Armadillo are champions. Emerald Fusion accepted and the matches were set for later in the night.
In a handicap match, Duff faced “Heartbreaker” Ruy Batello and Psycho Mike, accompanied by “The Mouthpiece of the East” Sean Gorman. Duff was unstoppable beating both his opponents down. In the end, he was overmatched, and was hit by Psycho Mike’s sit-out DVD “Straight Jacket”. After the match, Batello hit Duff with his modified pedigree, “Ru-ination”, and slapped Psycho Mike for taking the pinfall. Much to the delight of the crowd, Psycho Mike hit Batello with a “Straight Jacket” of his own.
In a match of two debuting PWF Northeast wrestlers, IPW-Hardcore TV Champion Dr. Heresy faced “Kick Ass” Kyle Storm in a non-title match. Storm is under a temporary contract with PWF Northeast, suspending litigation from the incident between him and one of the PWF Northeast producers at “Defiance”. That producer, Matt “Mad Dog” West, is finishing up a month suspension from the same incident. Both Storm and Heresy showed why they belong in PWF Northeast. Heresy attempted to hit his “Couch Trip” on Storm off the second rope, but Storm blocked and knocked Heresy to the canvas. Storm then climbed to the top and hit an elbow with amazing altitude to win the bout. After the match Storm hit a frog splash as a direct insult on Draven, West’s partner in the Damned. Draven came out and told Kyle there was a way to get Mad Dog in the ring finally. He could cease all litigation on Mad Dog. Storm agreed. Draven then added that the match would have to be a tag match between The Damned and Storm and a partner of his choosing at “Convergence”. While all of this was going on, Heresy, angered, hit ref Pepe Sanchez with a Couch Trip and left the ring. To seal the challenge, Draven hit his own frog splash on Sanchez and added “if you are going to steal my moves, at least do them well.”
In a tag team match to determine who would get a shot at PWF Mid-south Junior Heavyweight Champion Loco at “Convergence”, Tim Kilgore teamed with “Dancing Devil” Damian Houston to face “Broadway” Kenn Phoenix and Chi Chi Cruz. Both Houston and Phoenix Championship Wrestling’s Cruz were making their PWF Northeast debuts. The man to score the pinfall would find himself with the title shot next month. Kilgore took the brunt of the match, getting beat down by Phoenix and Cruz. When he was finally able to tag Houston, Damian came in and cleaned house. Somehow, “Broadway” was able to cut off Houston and throw him to the outside. Chi Chi charged at Kilgore, only to be back dropped over the top rope onto Damian Houston. From there, Kilgore hit a quick twisting sunset flip out of the corner on Phoenix to win the match and a title shot at PWF Mid-south’s Loco at Convergence.
TJ Wyld returned for his second Wyld-side of the night. He called out ref “Pee Wee Sherman”. Sherman complained that he had been made the PWF Northeast scapegoat. He had been made the reason why a few fan favorites had been robbed of title wins. He had been bullied by the larger wrestlers and even given a stupid name. His real name is Paul Hudson. At that point in the interview, “Enforcer” Larry Huntley came out and began bullying the much smaller Hudson. Hudson finally fought back. Huntley crushed Hudson, and then punched Wyld for trying to stop him. The next few minutes were nothing more than Huntley beating on Hudson, and taking occasional shots on TJ Wyld. Huntley picked up Wyld and hit his dropping torture-rack on Wyld and picked up Hudon. Hudson summed up all he had left and hit Huntley south of the border. He then scaled to the top rope and dove onto Huntley. Huntley stumbled over the fallen TJ Wyld and Hudson hooked a leg in a mock pin. Wyld, caught up in the moment, counted the pinfall and awarded the unofficial match to Referee Paul Hudson.
In a grudge match, “Revolution” Chris Venom faced former best friend and tag partner Triplelicious, who turned on Venom at “Defiance”. Both tore into each other like rabid dogs. Triplelicious worked over Venom, who finally fought back and executed his “BTf’nR” modified T-Bone suplex finisher. Triplelicious managed to kick out just before three. Triplelicious nailed Venom with his H-Cubed “Diamond cutter” move, but Venom got his foot on the ropes. Venom then countered a move into a tribute to Low-Ki’s “Ki-Krusher”. Again, Triplelicious kicked out. It finally took Venom’s new finisher, the Burning Hammer (inverted DVD) to win the match.
One half of the PWF Northeast Tag Champions The HCI Bash Brothers’ Kid Krazy came out, with manager Dr. Everette Payne and Zachary of the Marketing Department. He prepared to face “The Full Effect” Mike Paiva of Emerald Fusion. In the match there was a great amount of high flying by Paiva, and technical skill displayed by Krazy. Paiva reversed a powerbomb attempt into a roll up for a win. As Blade climbed into the ring, “Extreme” Adam Hastey, a former fan favorite now apparently in league with the Hard-core Institute, came out and began brawling with Paiva and Blade. He knocked Paiva out of the ring and then tripped up Blade. The ref sent he and Payne back to the locker room, neglecting Zachary. Krazy began to wrestle Blade, who came back and set Krazy up for his moonsault. Zachary pulled Krazy out of the way, and Krazy finished off Blade with a pile driver. This now means the Emerald Fusion will not get another shot at the PWF Northeast tag team titles while the Bash Brothers are the champions.
In the main event, a non-title match, PWF Northeast Champion “Bad Boy” Billy Black, accompanied by Criminal Intent partner “Enforcer” Larry Huntley, faces #1 contender “Trendsetter” Adam Booker with Miss Kristy. To open the match, Black decided to make some crude remarks at Miss Kristy, who replied with a slap and a bulldog leading to Booker taking it to the PWF Northeast Champ. Black used his dirty tactics to turn the tide and put a beating on Booker. Booker reversed a whip and accidentally splashed the referee. At that point, Huntley tried to interject and knocked Booker down. “Bad Boy” directed traffic and attempted to set up a spiked pile driver. Booker instead double legged the champ and slingshot him into Huntley, who was scaling the ropes. Adam then hit his split legged moonsault, pinning the champ for a good minute before the ref crawled over and made the count. Black kicked out at two. Huntley tried to get in the ring again, but Chris Venom ran out and pulled him out of the ring and brawled with him to the back. This left Booker alone to hit the champion with the “Trendsetter Combo” (Power bomb into a Styles Clash) for the non-title win.
