GSW Jingle Brawl, Moosic PA - Brute VanSlyke made his return to GSW after a few months absent on Saturday night December 12 at the Moosic Youth Center in Moosic PA. VanSlyke received a loud ovation from the crowd as he made his way to the ring for his match up against Bo Nekoda. The contest started off with some friendly back and forth of chain wrestling and a battle of attempted knock down. Bo was able to eventually stagger VanSlyke enough to catch him off guard and knock the big man down. This seemed to have only angered Brute as he began to become more and more angry and aggressive in the contest. Nekoda was able to mount a comeback after a lengthy beat down from Brute and once again was able to knock the big man off his feet but was not able to keep him down long enough for a three count. VanSlyke almost had the match won when he hit Bo with a power bomb/butterfly suplex combo but failing to do so made Brute angrier and attempted to hit his big lariat on Nekoda who managed to avoid contact and began trading hard blows with the big Brute. VanSlyke found an opening and locked in the Asiatic Spike submission on Nekoda who tried fighting out of the hold but was unable. Bo managed to reach the ropes which Brute mistook his reaching as tapping and when the ref informed him the match was not over he charged Bo who side stepped Brute causing him to spring into the roped and back into a back cracker giving Bo the win.
TAG TEAM ATTRACTION:
Brute VanSlyke & Kevin "The Man" Graham VS. "Hurricane" Helms & "Chainsaw" Joe Gacy
The former and ONLY three-time 2CW Tag Team Champions, Brute & Graham are looking for a challenge. They don’t feel like they are getting enough of a challenge in 2CW anymore. They even sent into single’s competition to see if they could get that challenge they want. Brute went to Japan and broke necks for three months. Rumor has it he’s banned indefinitely for brutalizing and breaking too many wrestlers. Kevin Graham went and became the 2CW champion. They are champions, they are the best tag team in 2CW, if you ask them. Well tonight they found themselves a challenge. A very unique tag team has joined forces to challenge the former champions. “Hurricane” Helms and “Chainsaw” Joe Gacy will team up for the first time in a 2CW ring to battle Brute and Graham. This unique pairing will be a challenge, but can they earn the victory over the former champions? Or will Brute and Graham just add another team to the list of defeated foes?
Tag Team Attraction:
Brute VanSlyke & Kevin "The Man" Graham VS. Isys Ephex & Ted Goodz (All Winners Club) VS. "Studly" Steve McKenzie & Guero Loco (Electric Dream Machine)
This is the sleeper match of the night. One could argue that the talent in this match is underrated to the national wrestling fan. But we have two former 2CW champions in this match (Kevin Graham and Isys Ephex) and one team is the ONLY 3-time (and only team to ever repeat as champions) 2CW Tag Team Champions (Brute VanSlyke and Kevin Graham). We have three 2CW Originals in Isys Ephex, Steve McKenzie and Guero Loco (Formerly Loca Vida). These six-men will be looking to show the fans how important 2CW has been to their careers. They will be at the top of their game, and getting the win is the most important thing.
