We’re done with Kings of Colosseum and while the Middleweight Title did change hands, the show did not exactly feel like a big deal. This week’s show could be though as Salina de la Renta is in charge and the Tag Team Titles are on the line. You can’t really tell in recent months though as the relaunch hasn’t gone so well. Let’s get to it.
Opening sequence, featuring a lot of de la Renta.
Salina is at the commentary booth and orders Bocchini to put on a mask because he is too early for television. She runs down the card and we’re ready to go.
Low Ki vs. Budd Heavy
A running forearm knocks Heavy cold in 7 seconds.
Result: Low Ki b. Budd Heavy via referee stoppage (0:07)
Post match Low Ki says Tom Lawlor got away with one and he isn’t done.
We look at Lio Rush winning the Middleweight Title.
Rush says his catchphrases to celebrate.
Konnan isn’t here to do commentary but Salina knows what happened.
We go to a clip from San Diego, with Salina in a dark room and holding a candle. Apparently Mil Muertes may have killed Konnan, whose name Salina won’t use.
Filthy Island is coming on February 17.
We look at Mads Krugger vs. Alex Hammerstone going to a double countout last week.
Krugger says he saw fear in Hammerstone’s eyes last week. If Hammerstone is man enough, bring the Openweight Title to Contra’s lair.
Mil Muertes vs. Brian Pillman Jr.
Salina is here with Muertes and Pillman bails straight to the floor. Back in and Pillman rolls around to grab a headlock, only to be scared out to the floor again. A clothesline lets Muertes hammer away and a belly to back suplex drops Pillman again. The chinlock goes on before Muertes hits some clotheslines in the corner. A Downward Spiral finishes Pillman at 3:28.
Result: Mil Muertes b. Brian Pillman Jr. – Downward Spiral (3:28)
Richard Holliday doesn’t like the lack of respect he is receiving as Caribbean Champion. Anytime Savio Vega wants one more shot, come and get it so we can settle this.
Tom Lawlor insists that he will call the Tag Team Title match down the line. He doesn’t know why ACH is getting a World Title shot before him after he beat ACH in the Opera Cup tournament.
Injustice isn’t happy with what Contra did to them last week.
We get some news that Promociones Dorado has been sold but Salina storms off.
Alex Hammerstone is playing the long game to become the new World Champion so he’s ready for another match with Mads Krugger. Sure he’ll come to the Contra lair.
Here’s the Top 10.
10. Laredo Kid
8. Myron Reed
7. Mads Krugger
6. Richard Holliday
5. Lio Rush
4. LA Park
3. Low Ki
2. Tom Lawlor
1. Alex Hammerstone
Tag Team Titles: Von Erichs vs. Los Parks
The Von Erichs are defending and Tom Lawlor is guest referee. Salina is here with the Parks and has a new bodyguard with her. The Parks jump them to start and we’re off in a hurry with the champs in trouble. The stomping ensues in the corner, including Park hitting a belt shot to Ross’ back. Now a medal stool is brought in for some more shots to put the champs down. The Von Erichs manage a double dropkick to the floor to set up a double dive for their first burst of offense.
Back in and Marshall chops away at Park in the corner, setting up an exchange of running clotheslines in the corner. Ross comes back in and superkicks Hijo into a Falcon Arrow for a very slow two. Some superkicks drop Ross and a Code Red gets two as we are suddenly having tags after seven minutes of anarchy. A clothesline gives Park two and Marshall is knocked to the floor for the huge suicide dive.
Everything breaks down again and Lawlor goes down, clutching his knee. As a result, the champs get a rather delayed two, and then Lawlor’s arm seizes up as well. The Parks’ stereo rollups get very fast two counts but Lawlor is low bridged to the floor. Back in and the Claw Slam hits Hijo for no count. Instead Salina comes in to mace Marshall and it’s a pair spear to drop him again. Cue LA Park Jr. to deck Ross and Park adds another spear for the pin and titles at 10:36.
Result: Los Parks b. Von Erichs – Spear to Marshall (10:36)
Of note: the Promociones Dorado logo appears at the end, with a statement saying “a subsidiary of Azteca Underground Inc.”.
