Gibki defends VPW’s honor against Clash and James as VPW celebrates 13 years

Last week Victory Pro Wrestling announced a major addition to Blood Sweat and 13 Years anniversary show: Victory Pro Wrestling champion Mister Tibbs would answer the challenge of CAP champion Johnny Clash.

To start the show, however, VPW Commissioner Kevin Fulton announced that Mister Tibbs would not be performing. He brought out Tibbs to the ring so he could explain himself.

The champion acknowledged the lackluster reaction from the fans, and because of them he is not wrestling. That when he attacked Coach Mammone, a VPW talent for just one year, the fans booed him. Tibbs, a 10-year VPW original, was booed out of the venue. He also announced that in February, he separated his shoulder. But because the fans have turned on him, instead of working through the pain he would have wrestled.

CAP Champion Johnny Clash had something to say about this, as he came to the ring to question Mister Tibbs’ motivation as a champion. If he were sick, injured, or even dying, he would find a way to wrestle.

VPW New York State Champion Steve Gibki came out next, upset that Clash would have something against VPW or the fans. Gibki went face to face to Clash. With Mister Tibbs looking by, Gibki said that he has no problem defending the pride of the fans as he is the most dominant champion in VPW.

Eric James, the number one contender to the VPW New York State Championship, came out to the ring and welcomed Johnny Clash to VPW. He then stated that Clash is welcome to join the VPW roster, but when it comes to the New York State championship, or the VPW championship, or anything else related to VPW, Clash needs to step to the back of the line.

Gibki then told James and Clash to both get ready as he’d fight them both later in the night.

The Commish agreed. Fulton announced that it would be Clash and James in the main event in a triple threat match against Steve Gibki for the VPW New York State Championship.

With James protesting, Fulton then announced that VPW champion Mister Tibbs would be the special guest referee.

KING OF NEW YORK JAY DELTA (w/ PUPPET JAY DELTA)
vs RYAN GALEONE

  • On paper, Galeone is all about power. In reality, the 6’7″ showed he was more than just muscles, flying around the ring like a cruiserweight.
  • The wily veteran Delta had a hard time trying to decipher Galeone, but once he found his spot, he took advantage of it, using the ring post to wear down Galeone’s arm and take away his strength
  • Galeone showed that, even with one arm, his power game was strong, hoisting Delta up for a press slam using just his strong arm.
  • With Delta looking to use his scepter to end the match, Galeone took to the top rope and connected with a springboard clothesline to seal the deal

WINNER: RYAN GALEONE

WOMEN’S DIVISION MATCH
KAREN BAMBAM vs JAYEL COTTO

  • Karen brought her power game, along with her size advantage, to dominate Jayel
  • Jayel suffered a beatdown filled with submissions and clubbing blows, with Karen working on her back.
  • Jayel, a two time Tae Kwon Do world champion, showed Karen that size does not matter as she was able to chop her down with a combination of speed and kicks

WINNER: JAYEL COTTO

ABSOLUTE ALVIN ALVAREZ vs RAZZLE DAZZLE

  • Razzle Dazzle stepped up his game against Alvarez, throwing off the Absolute one early in the match.
  • Alvarez used the ring apron to gain control, and from there dominated Razzle.
  • Once Razzle started to mount a comeback, Alvarez snapped. He dropped Razzle with a uranage, then speared him through a wooden door

WINNER VIA DISQUALIFICATION: RAZZLE DAZZLE

After the match, Commissioner Fulton announced that since Alvarez put DA Black Sheep through a door at Before the Storm, and Razzle Dazzle at Blood Sweat and 13 Years, that next month when Stockade returns to VPW, it would be Stockade and Alvarez in a Doorway to Hell match.

THE GIANT ANDRE (w/ KYLER KHAN)
vs PERCIVAL THE THIRD

  • Percival the Third made his debut against the 7″ giant monster, driven and motivated by his tag team partner Kyler Khan.
  • Percival’s attack plan of running and quick attacks from the second rope may not have been the best strategy.
  • Every point of offense was squashed by Andre, who dominated the contest.

WINNER: THE GIANT ANDRE

After the match, Kyler Khan claimed that VPW did not have the decency to give him a challenge, and that nobody in the locker room had the capability to step up to the Giant Andre.

Ryan Galeone came down to the ring and went face to face with Andre in the ring. Khan tried to defuse the situation, but received a right hand from Galeone. Galeone then clotheslined Andre to the outside of the ring.

TAG TEAM ACTION
TRIPLE L “LADIES LOVE LIAM” & JAY STAR
vs NOTORIOUS & LAWRENCE SPIRAL (w/ ERIS RAYNE)

  • Spiral and Notorious took control early on, dominating their opponents with speed and high flying action.
  • Triple L slowed it down for his team, taking control of Notorious, before many quick tags between himself and Jay Star.
  • VPW official John Q certainly had his hands full, and Star and Triple L took advantage of this every chance they got.
  • After a hot tag and knocking Star outside the ring, Spiral connected with a springboard moonsault, leaving the supine Liam vulnerable to a cover by Notorious

WINNERS: LAWRENCE SPIRAL & NOTORIOUS

TAG TEAM ACTION
THE EVEN STEVENS (Steve Somerset/Steven Azure)
vs FIGHTER COP (Fighter Cat/Grammar Cop)

Before the match started, VPW Commissioner Kevin Fulton came down the aisle to recognize the Even Stevens and express how impressed he was with them. He also recognized that Fighter Cop had earned their right to the Number One Contendership for the VPW Tag Team Championships.

But Fulton was so impressed he decided to give the Even Stevens a chance at the VPW Tag Team Championships by putting the Number One Contendership on the line, with the winners facing the VPW Tag Team Champions The Fast and the Furriest (Johnny Collins/Bryce Donovan) at April’s “Glory Days” VPW show.

  • Fighter Cop started off strong, with a faux dive from Grammar Cop to the outside, followed by a real dive from Fighter Cat, surprising the Stevens outside the ring.
  • A distraction by Azure gave the Even Stevens the advantage as he attacked Grammar Cop on the outside, taking his mask.
  • The brothers by first name showed their tag team savvy as the match continued, cutting the ring in half and keeping Fighter Cat away from his partner.
  • The Even Stevens went to go with the Even Flow finisher, but Grammar Cop took out Somerset and took over with a rolling double DDT to knock Azure out

VPW NEW YORK STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
TRIPLE THREAT MATCH
CAP CHAMPION JOHNNY CLASH
vs THE THROWBACK ERIC JAMES
vs NEW YORK STATE CHAMPION STEVE GIBKI

Special Guest Referee: VPW Champion Mister Tibbs

  • Johnny Clash, CAP champion since December 2017, showed that he could keep up with two of Victory Pro Wrestling’s top stars in Gibki and James, who left Clash behind and initially focused on each other.
  • Gibki and James started against each other with Clash outside, but that did not last long. Clash quickly asserted himself and attempted to end the night early and claim the New York State championship
  • Gibki’s strength and power helped him dominate, but the numbers game kept him in check.
  • Clash, taking advantage of Triple Threat rules, brought his CAP championship into play, using it to knock Gibki out. He got a little cocky, showing the belt to Tibbs and telling him that’s what a real championship looked like. This lead to Tibbs hitting him with a stunner. Clash kicked out, James picked him up and looked to finish him, but Clash reversed the move. This left him alone with Gibki, who connected with his Feel Good Drag finisher

WINNER AND STILL NEW YORK STATE CHAMPION: STEVE GIBKI

After the match, Clash protested against Tibbs. In return, he received another stunner for his troubles. Gibki then connected with a rock bottom slam. Tibbs almost surprised Gibki with a stunner of his own, but Gibki caught him in the set-up. Tibbs left the ring unscathed with Gibki standing tall at the end of the night.

What is going to happen when Victory Pro Wrestling returns to Centereach for Glory Days on April 13?
