This is the one & only Socaluncensored.com’s Mike Draven here to recap the Lupus LA Fundraiser Event which took place on Saturday March 7th 2015 from the Knights of Columbus Hall in Canoga Park, Ca.
The show kicked off with Bill Chew or better known as “OMB-Old Man Bill” as he welcomed everyone to this special event to raise money for Lupus LA. He would introduce your ring announcer “The Velvet Voice of So Cal” Michael O’Garro Jr as we kicked off with a Battle Royal.
Over the Top Battle Royal:
Former GWAR member Techno Destructo outlasted everyone last eliminating C-Love to win the Battle Royal & was presented with a LUPUS LA Battle Royal plaque. After the match, both The Human Tornado (along with Cap Comic Con) & C-Love argued to OMB about how Techno won the match using his “Clamp Appendage” to eliminate them from the match where OMB said it wasn’t illegal to use & thus is your winner. But OMB would ease both C-Love & Human Tornado by putting them in a match against Techno Destructo & another man of his choosing in a Fatal 4 way later in the evening.
Fatal 4 Way Elimination Match:
Jacob “The Riot” Diez (w/Lizzy Sunshine) def Eli Everfly, “Charming” Biagio Crenzenso & Tyler Smith via “Ay Diez Mejo” on Everfly to become the victor in this hard hitting match.
If you’ve seen them face each other in promotions like Santino Bros & Freakshow Wrestling, our next contest we see two bitter rivals square off in a battle of the ages.
Chaz Hererra def Darwin Finch with a small package pin for the victory. Both nerds..I mean “Intellectual Grapplers” would shake hands in sportsmanship in a good, technical match up.
Fatal 4 Way Match (One Fall Victory):
The Human Tornado (w/Cap Comic Con) def GWAR’s Techno Destructo, C-Love & D’Marko Wilson via Reverse Suplex.
Sgt Major Alexander Paul would make his way to ringside & issues an open challenge to anyone in the back to get in the ring with him & it was answered by Knokx Pro’s Hillbilly Hero.
Sgt Major Alexander Paul def Hillbilly Hero with a Chokeslam for the win.
No Disqualification Match:
Luis Tapia & Rudy def Oso Loco & Freddy Hellmuth as Rudy hits a “Diet” Pepsi Plunge off the top rope w/Oso Loco landing on Hellmuth for the win.
Tag Team Chairs Match:
“The Human Horror Film” Supreme & “The Pumpkin Queen” Sage Sin Supreme def The Hellkid & Johnny “The Kid” Kai with Sage hitting a flipping Powerbomb on Kai followed by a Supreme splash for the win for the Supreme Family.
Semi Main Event 8 Man Tag Team Match:
“The Urban Juggernault” Sean Black, “The Protagonist” David Rage, Ryan Ramos & The American Balloon def “Blackhart” Fern Owens, “Mr. Pop Culture” Adan Reyes & Team Hi Def (“Golden Heart” Drake Fortune & “High Flying Sensation” Steven Andrews) as The American Balloon delivered a Moonsault from the top rope onto Fern Owens for the win.
Mercurio Jr def “The Manster” Warhog (w/Cap Comic Con & The Human Tornado) after multiple counters Mercurio was able to catch Warhog with with a reversal pinfall victory. After the match, Cap Comic Con would again try to convince Mercurio to join The Revelation but again he would deny. Ultimately having Mercurio & Human Tornado brawling in the ring as referee’s & security try to break up both men. OMB would announce at his next event that both Mercurio Jr would meet The Human Tornado in a 1 on 1 match as we end the evening’s event.
If you’re a wrestling fan & you’ve gone to shows from different promotions all across So Cal, you’ve may have seen or heard about Bill Chew or better known as “OMB-Old Man Bill”. OMB has been a super fan of the wrestling scene for some time & he’s not only done refereeing in the past but has help promotions along the way. He wanted to sponsor a fundraiser for Lupus LA since its a foundation he knows about & this show made $700 for Lupus LA charity.
If you’re not familiar of what LUPUS is: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus) can affect any organ in the body and may cause a wide range of symptoms. Some of the most common lupus symptoms are:
Extreme fatigue that doesn’t go away with rest
Joint pain, stiffness, and swelling in two or more joints
Fever over 100°F
Skin sores and rashes (which may occur in a butterfly-shaped pattern across the cheeks and nose)
Nose or mouth sores (usually painless)
Skin rashes after sun exposure
Unfortunately, some wrestlers who were advertised were unable to make the event due to transportation &/or injuries but after the success of this event, OMB is looking to continue to showcase So Cal talent with a possible bi-monthly event with the next event might be taking place in April. Once I hear from OMB, I’ll pass the info along on our Socaluncensored event calendar.
As to my Matches of the Night, I give the nod to:
Rage/Black/Ramos/Balloon vs Team HD/Owens/Reyes
Mercurio Jr vs Warhog
Chaz Hererra vs Darwin Finch
Hellkid/Kai vs Supreme/Sage Sin Supreme
As always I continue to say Thank You to you the fans of Southern California for your devotion to supporting Independent Professional Wrestling in So Cal.
