Fusion #25
Date: October 5, 2018
Location: War Memorial Auditorium, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Commentators: Rich Bocchini, Tony Schiavone

Fury Road has come and gone but it’s going to be a few weeks before we get there. Why a show that has been around about six months can figure out the scheduling better than Ring of Honor is beyond me, but who am I to complain? The main event here is LA Park vs. Pentagon in a Mexican Massacre match. Let’s get to it.

We open with Low Ki narrating a video about being Fenix last week, which shows how he and Salina de la Renta will triumph over Konnan. Tonight LA Park will take care of Konnan.

Opening sequence.

Earlier today, Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Aria Blake came to see Salina to ask for help with Joey Janela. Low Ki seems intrigued.

Ricky Martinez vs. Jake St. Patrick

Martinez pauses for a conference with Salina before taking him down for some headscissors faceplants on the mat. St. Patrick gets thrown into the corner for some chops and a hard running lariat. A top rope Codebreaker finishes St. Patrick at 2:12. Total squash.

Result: Ricky Martinez b. Jake St. Patrick – Top rope Codebreaker (2:12)

Tom Lawlor is training in Las Vegas and promises to beat Shane Strickland to prove that he’s the best in the world.

Simon Gotch vs. ???

This is another Prize Fight Challenge for $2000 and the challenger is….Gangrel of all people.  Gangrel goes straight at him to start and hammers away in the corner, followed by the running elbow. Gotch sleepers him so Gangrel uses the fangs to escape….and that’s a DQ at 1:03.

Result: Simon Gotch b. Gangrel via DQ when Gangrel bit him (1:08)

ACH doesn’t know why Davey Boy Smith Jr. is getting booked after what the Hart Foundation did to Kevin Sullivan. He’s ready to bite like a bulldog.

We look back at Jimmy Havoc vs. Sami Callihan from last week. Spin the Wheel Make the Deal airs on October 26’s Halloween special.

Callihan loves the idea of spinning the wheel and lists off some options, including Coal Miner’s Glove.

We get the first Fightland (November 8 show in Chicago) Control Center with Shane Strickland getting his World Title rematch against Low Ki.

Davey Boy Smith Jr. vs. ACH

ACH dropkicks him at the bell and starts in with the flipping. That just annoys Bulldog so he puts ACH on top for a forearm to the jaw. A superplex is countered into a rollup for two on Smith and a deadlift German suplex is good for the same. ACH takes way too much time going up and tries jumping from the other ring’s top rope for a frog splash, allowing Smith to get away pretty easily. The running powerslam finishes ACH at 2:29.

Result: Davey Boy Smith Jr. b. ACH – Running powerslam (2:29)

Konnan is ready for the big main event when Salina (in a different outfit) interrupts. She thanks him for making Pentagon a sacrifice for LA Park. They switch to Spanish and don’t seem to like each other.

Rush, a big name luchador, is coming.

Tale of the tape for Park vs. Pentagon.

LA Park vs. Pentagon

Mexican Massacre, which seems to mean street fight. Salina, in a third outfit, and Konnan are here as well. They go nose to nose to start until Parka pelts a trashcan at him to take over early on. It’s already time to go for Pentagon’s mask, which is torn in half in quite the sign of disrespect. Of course it’s table time with Park going near the production area to clear one off and bring it to the ring.

A dustpan to the back keeps Pentagon in trouble and Salina is very pleased. Park hits him in the shoulder with a studded belt and it’s time for some good old fashioned choking. A hurricanrana sends Park to the floor and there’s the big flip dive. One heck of a chair shot to the head has Park’s mask messed up as well and they head back inside. Pentagon hits a top rope double stomp for two and throws some Spanish insults at Salina.

Park clotheslines him down for two of his own but Pentagon kicks him in the knee in the corner to set up the Alberto double stomp. A snap powerslam near a trashcan sets up a backsplash for two on Pentagon, followed by the suicide dive on the floor. Back in and Park hits something like a Lethal Combination for two more but Pentagon is right back with the Sling Blades. Park trashcans him down for another near fall and it’s time for another table. That takes too long though, allowing Pentagon to hit a Backstabber.

Some trashcan shots to the head have Park in trouble but he’s fine enough to come off the top with a spear through the table for a rather close two. Pentagon kicks him low for two more and takes his frustrations out on the referee with a trashcan to the back. Park kicks him low and grabs a cover, with the referee counting a fast pin at 15:56.

Result: LA Park b. Pentagon – Low blow (15:56)

Post match Park rants in Spanish, which Salina translates to a challenge for the Tag Team Titles. Pentagon seems to accept to end the show.
