This was billed as the first live wrestling show in the history of the Comedy Store.
The members of the podcast, The Store Horsemen (Tony Hinchcliffe, Johnny Skourtis, Mat Edgar, Josh Martin, and producer Chris Burns) served as commentators for the show and were involved in some angles throughout. Josh Barnett joined the commentary team about half-way through the show after taking part in one of the bits.
Nzo over Brian Pillman Jr. Was a wrestling, turned into a boxing match half-way through, including show hosts as corner men. Finished as a wrestling match with Nzo getting the pin. Nzo actually looked real good in the match. The crowd was really with him. Pillman Jr is really great also, he is not long on the indy scene.
David Arquette was out next to face a mystery opponent. He said it was fitting that it was Rodney Dangerfield’s birthday because Arquette gets no respect from the wrestling fans. He went on to make fun of himself, saying he is ‘The Michael Jordan of baseball of wrestling,’ and that he was out ‘to clear my name, unfortunately my name is David Arquette.’
The announcers revealed his opponent was…The Shockmaster. Of course, the Shockmaster fell down a couple of times on his way to the ring and actually split his helmet in half.
Davd Arquette over Bull James (dressed as the Shockmaster). There was glitter everywhere in the ring from the Shockmaster helmet.
The 1 % (Royce Isaacs & Jorel Nelson) over Eric Watts and Peter Avalon. Great work by both teams. Nelson pinned Avalon.
This is where Barnett came out and chopped one of the hosts in one of the comedy bits.
Priscilla Kelly over Joey Ryan after sticking a blow pop up his bum.
Tony Hinchliffe cut a heal promo on being a famous comedian and running down Roddy Piper (who used to be a regular at the Comedy Store). Teal Piper came out and choked Hincliffe out. Hinchcliffe later came back to commentary in a neck brace, paying homage to Andy Kaufman.
Luchasaurus over Jervis Cottonbelly. Not much of a match, something just didn’t click.
The Lucha Brothers (Penta El Zero M & Rey Fenix) over Matt Sydal and Darby Allin. They hit a package piledriver on Sydal for the pin. There was a mix of wrestling and non-wrestling fans in the audience. The non-wrestling fans were really into the work of these four.
There were some technical glitches throughout the show, but the comedians were more than talented enough to cover for them.
Was strange (maybe not for Hollywood) seeing Fenix and Pentagon running down Sunset to their car after the show to make a mad dash down to Tijuana for the Crash.
