CZW: Night of Infamy 9

Philadelphia, PA – 11.13.2010

CZW Tag Team Championship Tournament Semi-Finals
Amasis & Ophidian vs. Ryan Slater & Joe Gacy

The Osirian Portal defeated The Best Around in the quarter-final round of this tournament. The Runaways attack the Osirian Portal on the floor before the bell. Gacy brings Ophidian back into the ring while Slater sets up a pile of chairs on the floor. Gacy powerslams Ophidian and throws him to the floor. Slater powerbombs Amasis off the apron into six set-up folding chairs on the floor. Amasis surprisingly kicks out at two back in the ring. Slater throws Ophidian into the guardrail. Amasis gets beaten down back in the ring while Ophidian recoups. Slater knocks Ophidian off the apron to extend his and Gacy’s beatdown. Ophidian runs in to attack Slater, but gets thrown out almost instantly. Amasis finally escapes The Runaways grasp by diving onto Slater on the floor. Ophidian tags in and gives Gacy a pair of kicks to the head. Ophidian nails Gacy with a sick kick. Ophidian hits an enzuigiri from the apron and follows up with a slingshot quebrada for two. Amasis and Slater battle in the crowd while Ophidian faceplants Gacy into the mat. Ophidian rolls out with a hurricanrana to Gacy on the floor. Ophidian sends Gacy into the crowd. Amasis dives onto Slater in the crowd, but Ophidian crashes and burns when trying to dive onto Gacy. He redeems himself with a splash from the guardrail onto Gacy. Amasis lays into Slater with chair shots. In the ring, The Portal sets up for the Osirian Sacrament. Slater cuts Amasis off, and slams Ophidian onto a table (which doesn’t break). Slater hits a fisherman’s buster on Amasis. Gacy follows up with a frogsplash, but Ophidian breaks the pin. Gacy and Slater hit a powerbomb/blockbuster combo on Ophidian, and Amasis breaks that pin up. Ophidian hypnotizes both Gacy and Slater and the entrance way. Amasis brings in a cardboard box and dances with Ophidian while Gacy and Slater are stunned. Many of the wrestlers come out in a trance to join the dance ringside. Slater and Gacy dance too! This is one of the most bizarre things I’ve ever seen in wrestling. Amasis and Ophidian break the hypnosis and hit Gacy with the Osirian Sacrament for the pin at 15:22. What a weird transition in this match. We had an all out war to start, leading to a finish that couldn’t help but leave you smiling. The dichotomy from the first 12 minutes and last 3 minutes was awesome, and made this an altogether entertaining package that got the Portal over big time. ***
