A double steel cage main event. One a blood feud finally boiling over, the other a clash between old school and new school.
Tonight featured drama, chaos, and changes that closed 2019 for Victory Pro Wrestling on a high note for the standing room only VFW hall in Centereach.
Kyler KHAN vs Stockade
- The match started with Khan playing mind games, running from Stockade
- Once the action started, it was all Stockade. The battle spilled outside the ring, to the back, and around the ring where Stockade used a fan’s shoe to beat Khan.
- Once the action returned to the ring, Khan took over.
- With Stockade regaining momentum, Khan took a turnbuckle pad off. With the referee fixing the pad, he grabbed a steel chair from under the ring and pretended he was hit so Stockade would get disqualified. Stockade saw through the plan so he dropped down to.
- While Khan protested he was hit (when he wasn’t), Stockade was able to set him up for his double arm DDT for the win.
Lance Anderson vs Steve Michaels
- Once the bell rang, Anderson seemed to be too casual, while Michaels was ready for business. Anderson ducked a clothesline while saying hi to fans, then he ducked a second one to check his boots. The third connected, and from there it was all Michaels.
- Anderson did try to come back, but his attempts only made Michaels angrier.
- The match mercifully ended when Michaels locked Anderson in the Chicago Bearhug for the win.
WINNER BY SUBMISSION: STEVE MICHAELS
Johnny Collins came to the ring flanked by The Even Stevens. Collins announced that he was not medically cleared to perform. He even presented a note from Dr. Steve.
::Karlo Vice:: vs Jack Tomlinson
- The rockstar debuted against Jack Tomlinson, who started things off with a flurry.
- Vice was able to slow things down and take control, but Tomlinson was too fast for the newcomer.
WINNER: JACK TOMLINSON
TAG TEAM ACTION
Zo Agau & The Plague (Mike Anthony/Jesse Hurst)
vs Percival the Third/Dezmond Cole/Francis Kip Stevens
- The action started before the bell rang as Agau and The Plague attacked their opponents before they got in the ring.
- Stevens lead the charge to take control, but his team fell to the grasps of the Plague and Agau.
- A miscalculation gave Cole, Percival, and Stevens a chance to come back and pick up the win.

The Absolute Brand (Alvin Alvarez/The Giant Andre) with Silk E Smooth
vs SPITE (Johnny Clash/Liam Davis)
- SPITE, the current CAP tag team champions, came out to try and overcome the Absolute Brand and put themselves into contention for the VPW Tag Team Championships.
- This was the toughest challenge to date for Alvarez and Andre, as they were able to outlast and fight back throughout the match where other times would have fallen.
- The sheer power of Andre and Alvarez’s ring experience was too much for SPITE in this contest.
WINNERS: THE ABSOLUTE BRAND
After the match, Alvarez called out the Cat and Cop Connection, wishing them luck and claiming that in January’s King of New York show, the Absolute Brand would be victorious.
VPW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
The Influence (Eric James/Jay Delta) w/ Puppet Jay Delta
vs Champions The Cat and Cop Connection
- The New York State championship and the King of New York would be represented in this match as Eric James and Jay Delta would team up against the VPW Tag Team Champions as they looked to add more championship glory to The Influence.
- The experience of the Influence worked well for them as the wily veterans controlled the match.
- A miscue by Eric James, superkicking Jay Delta instead of Fighter Cat, cost them the win.
WINNERS AND STILL VPW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: THE CAT AND COP CONNECTION
After the match… Delta and James started to argue about how the match ended, with Delta blaming James. James said it was a mistake.
Kyler KHAN came to the ring to try to difuse the situation, when Delta noticed that Khan was wearing a “Kill the Puppet” shirt. VPW Commissioner Kevin Fulton shortly followed, with James giving his partners the finger as he left for the locker room. Fulton asked Khan about the shirt, who claimed it was a nice shirt and didn’t understand the problem.
VPW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP
Champion Ariela Nyx vs Nakoma Tala
- Since winning the VPW Women’s championship, Ariela has successfully defended the championship against all comers, friend or foe.
- Nakoma showed to be one of the tougher challenges to date, but still fell to Ariela’s neckbreaker.
WINNER AND STILL VPW WOMEN’S CHAMPION: ARIELA NYX
After the match… Karen BamBam came to the ring to rain on Ariela’s parade, congratulating Ariela on her win. She then focused on telling the champion to enjoy her Thanksgiving, then her Christmas, and her New Year’s, because at January 11th’s King of New York Karen BamBam would be the next VPW Women’s Champion.
STEEL CAGE DOUBLE MAIN EVENT
The Even Stevens (Steve Somerset/Stephen Azure) vs Bryce Donovan and Bobby Orlando
- It started with a flurry of action from Orlando and Donovan, with the Even Stevens trying to take control.
- After being dominated, the Stevens found a way top take control – by tying Bobby Orlando to the cage and taking him out of the equation. This gave them a two on one advantage against Donovan.
- A mistake by Somerset knocked Azure down, which allowed Donovan the time to free his partner.
- Back and forth action continued, but a double choke slam from Bryce Donovan gave his team the win.
WINNERS: BOBBY ORLANDO & BRYCE DONOVAN
STEEL CAGE MAIN EVENT
Champion Mister Tibbs (w/ Jay Delta, Puppet Jay Delta, Kyler KHAN, Eric James, and Kevin Fulton) vs Coach Mammone
- Before the match started, it was announced that by order of the ownership of Victory Pro Wrestling, Inc., that Jay Delta, Puppet Jay Delta, Kyler KHAN, and Eric James would be banned from ringside during the match.
- It was also announced that it was one fall to a finish, meaning there would be no disqualifications.
- Once the bell rang, it was action at 100mph. Mammone and Tibbs went back and forth to start things off and it didn’t look like it would ever slow down.
- Mammone was able to mount an offense and looked to win with a stunner, but Tibbs kicked out. As the challenger looked to rally, he went to the top and Tibbs took over, pushing the referee into the ropes.
- Tibbs then went after the arm of Mammone, injured at Monster Mash. The champion was ruthless in his assault, with a razor sharp focus.
- Mammone used the cage to try to regain control, eventually busting the champion open. But the experienced Tibbs kept coming back.
- Frustrated after another two count, Tibbs knocked out the referee. This gave him the opportunity to steal the key and give it to VPW Commissioner Kevin Fulton, who opened the cage and gave Tibbs a steel chair.
- Tibbs used the chair to wear down Mammone’s arm some more, but when Mammone came back, Fulton entered the ring himself. The commissioner used the chair himself, but knocked himself. Mammone connected with a stunner to knock him out.
- Tibbs tried to take advantage but he also met the Coach’s stunner, then a reverse DDT and splash.
WINNER AND NEW VICTORY PRO WRESTLING CHAMPION: COACH MAMMONE
Victory Pro Wrestling closed the year with Coach Mammone celebrating with a raucous audience, cheering long after the match ended.
