JAPW: Holy Ouch 2

Rahway, NJ – 5.9.2009

Hallowicked & Frightmare vs. Amasis & Ophidian

Hallowicked and Amasis go through a Lucha influenced feeling out process. Hallowicked gets a big boot and tags in Frightmare. Amasis slides to the floor and Ophidian hops in to attack both Incoherence members. Ophidian and Frightmare go through their own polished Lucha sequence. Ophidian takes down Frightmare with a rope assisted headscissors. The Portal double team Frightmare in the corner. The Portal give Hallowickeda double hip toss and double knee strikes. Frightmare gives Amasis a kneecolepsy to the back. Incoherence isolate Amasis from Ophidian, using some double team tactics to take the lead. Ophidian tags in and takes down Hallowicked and Frightmare. Ophidian ducks a yakuza kick from Hallowicked, and Ophidian dives onto Frightmare on the floor. Amasis hits a flying forearm on Hallowicked, and Ophidian follows up with a moonsault for two. Hallowicked places Ophidian on his shoulders. Frightmare hops over him and hits a hurricanrana, sending Amasis to the floor. Hallowicked nails Ophidian with Go Too Sleepy Hollow for two. Ophidian gives Hallowicked a spinwheel kick, and Frightmare takes him over with a hurricanrana. Frightmare hits the kneecolepsy and Amasis breaks the pin. Amasis knees Hallowicked, and that makes him DDT Frightmare (Amasis set it up that way). The Portal hit Frightmare with the Osirian Sacrament for the pin at 10:49. This was a fun CHIKARA style tag team match. Both teams compliment each other well and were very smooth overall. It was weird seeing Incoherence work heel, but hey it worked out just fine. ***

JAPW New Jersey State Championship
Eddie Kingston (Champion) vs. Archadia

Bandido Jr. and his father (one of the JAPW founders) are ringside for this match, as he and Kingston have been having a beef lately. Archadia immediately bails to the floor. Archadia comes back in after a few minutes, and Kingston goes to the floor and mocks Bandido Jr. Some fans make some comments to Kingston that I don’t hear or care about. We finally get some wrestling, and Archadia dropkicks Kingston. Kingston throws Archadia into the guardrail and then back in the ring. Kingston takes Archadia over with a leg-capture suplex for two. Kingston chops Archadia and misses a mafia kick. Archadia springboards in with a dropkick to the back of Kingston’s neck for two. Kingston gives Archadia a urinage supelx for two. Archadia hits a step-up legdrop for two. Kingston gives Archadia a back suplex and calls out Bandido Jr. on the floor. He gets on the apron and Archadia rolls up Kingston for the pin and the title at 9:20. The story was alright, but this was such a boring match. They basically did nothing for 9 minutes which felt much longer. I like the feud with Bandido Jr. and Kingston, but this was pretty superfluous. *
