Sumie Sakai vs. Casanova

Casanova gets pelted with shower sponges. Well, the fans chanted that he was smelly last night, so that makes sense. Casanova hips swivels in Sakai’s direction. That leads to a series of armdrags. Casanova has a problem kipping up, but once he does he puts Sakai in a headlock. She trips Casanova on the middle rope and delivers a 619. She pulls Casanova’s hair while putting him in a Camel Clutch. Casanova picks her up and drops her rib first across his knee. Casanova gives her a gut buster for two.

Sakai takes him down with a headscissors and a pair of dropkicks. He knees her in the mid-section and delivers another gut buster for two. Casanova and Sakai fight on the ropes. Sakai shoves him to the mat and hits a top rope dropkick for two. Sakai waistlocks Casanova and accidentally pulls a sock from his tights. She shoves the sock into Casanova’s mouth and small packages him for the win at 6:20. Casanova’s shtick really is a one trick pony, and seeing him once is more than enough. Not that Sakai is anything special, but both of them need the right opponents to truly work well. 1/2*

Darin Corbin (NSE} & Ryan Cruz {NSE} vs. Crossbones & Rorschach

Cruz drops him with the Boom Shaka-Laka for two. Crossbones spins Cruz out with a slam onto his knee. Corbin knees Crossbones in the face. He and Cruz hit the Cruz Control for the pin at 9:39. This was a fun tag match, and the first thing with value on the show. The action was good throughout. I didn’t realize that Crossbones had always been beloved, but he got a lot of cheers from this crowd. The fans were genuinely mad that he got pinned but because it was the North Stars they were alright. **1/2

After the match, Leonard F. Chikarason informs the North Stars that because of their victory they have earned a spot in the Tag World Grand Prix.

Sabian {BO} vs. Arik Cannon

Even after turning on the Kings of Wrestling, Cannon is still acting like and being treated by the crowd like a heel. Cannon shoulder blocks Sabian and mocks the fans. Sabian trips Cannon and crosses his legs. Cannon pops up and gets sent to the floor with a quebradora. Sabian tope’s onto him and brings him back in the ring for two.

Sabian knocks Cannon to the mat and hits a double stomp for the pin at 11:57. I’m pretty annoyed that Cannon didn’t win the Glimmering Warlock/brainbuster combo. If he wasn’t going to finish Sabian with that combo, he just should not have used those moves at all. Besides that, this was really good. The action was exciting, made sense and the crowd absolutely loved to boo Cannon and mock him for his resemblance to the Kool-Aid Man. ***

ICW/ICWA Tex-Arkana Television Championship
Larry Sweeney (Champion) vs. Mister ZERO {MW}

Some absurd rules make this a street fight with a 169 count on the floor instead of 20. Sweeney brags and swivels his hips after a simple hip toss. He brags after an atomic drop too. Sweeney goes to the floor and yells at the crowd after hearing the crowd’s pro ZERO chants. Sweeney does some squats after slamming ZERO.

ZERO brings him out of the corner with a bulldog for two. Sweeney grabs the brass knucks. While Bryce disposes of them again, Sweeney nails ZERO with the title belt for the pin at 11:55. Sweeney is so incredibly entertaining that it hurts to think that we won’t get matches like these ever again. As he did at the last college event, Sweeney forced the crowd to care and had them in the palm of his hand. This was so much fun to watch. **1/2
