Coach Mammone made a beeline to the ring to start the show off, cutting off the ring announcer and keeping it straight to the point. After being taken out, he’s back and he wants revenge against Kyler Khan and the Influence.
Looking to the locker room, Mammone and the VPW Faithful were surprised as Kyler Khan came to the ring from the fans and attacked the VPW Champion from behind. Making the save was Eric James? Apparently so!
The New York State champion then mentioned that the rest of the Influence wasn’t there tonight, and that Kyler Khan was here to do the dirty work. James called Khan the Influence’s bitch.
Kyler Khan then told Eric James that tonight he would be facing Ryan Galeone. Khan then said there was more, that per VPW Commissioner Kevin Fulton, it would be a triple threat match. With no disqualification. And that the Influence called in a favor, bringing out Johnny Clash.
Eric James and Coach Mammone then ended it with a handshake, as James said, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

WINNER: JOHNNY “PRETTY BOY” COLLINS
Last month, Percival the Third brutally assaulted his tag team partner Aaron Rourke. The Voice of Victory Pro Wrestling John E Radioo brought him out to ask him why.
He first declared that he will no longer be referred to by that name, and that moving forward he would be known as Percy Ryan. From there, he went on to explain why he did what he did to Rourke by starting that he hated every single person in VPW.
Percy Ryan said that he thought if he was like everyone else, that he would rise to the top. But he was done with that, now he was the one reason why people came to VPW. He then called out Aaron Rourke saying that Rourke’s lucky he didn’t go to the hospital to rip his damn leg off.
Percy Ryan then called out and asked anyone to come out from the back. Phillip Cardigan answered the call, introducing himself to the fans, walking to the ring with a tumbler and letting the fans know he had a 401k, insurance, and great medical.
PERCY RYAN vs PHILLIP CARDIGAN
- Cardigan started off strong against Ryan, celebrating with the fans with a dance in the ring as Ryan was on the outside.
- Once with the advantage, Percy Ryan focused on Phillip Cardigan’s leg, grounding him.
- Cardigan grabbed his tumbler and “caffeinated up” to regain control
- Looking to finish off Percy Ryan, Phillip Cardigan rolled out of the corner for what looked like an Honor Roll DDT, but Ryan had Cardigan’s tumbler in his hand and used it as a weapon.
WINNER BY DISQUALIFICATION: PHILLIP CARDIGAN
After the match, Percy Ryan focused on Cardigan’s leg again, grapevining it
VPW NEW YORK STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
CHAMPION ERIC JAMES vs THE ADRENALINE RUSH RYAN GALEONE vs JOHNNY CLASH
- The triple threat started off with Kyler Khan dragging Eric James outside the ring and beating him around the ring as Johnny Clash took on Ryan Galeone inside the ring. Khan’s assault continued, leading James to the locker room area leaving Galeone and Clash in the ring.
- The two heavyweights went back and forth, with Clash showing power and ruthlessness and Galeone showing uncanny agility for a man his size.
- The action went back and forth until Clash went for a shortcut and threw a couple of steel chairs in the ring. As he was about to use them, Eric James returned to the ring
- Clash attempted to use the chair, but James dropkicked the chair into Clash which was the knockout blow.
WINNER AND STILL NEW YORK STATE CHAMPION: ERIC JAMES
VPW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
CHAMPIONS THE ABSOLUTE BRAND (Alvin Alvarez & the Giant Andre) w/ Silk E Smooth
vs THE EVEN STEVENS (Steve Somerset/Steven Azure) w/ Johnny Collins
- The champions did not get a proper introduction before the match. They stormed the ring, still hot from how last month’s show ended with them being attacked by Johnny Collins and Steve Somerset, so they started outside the ring with an attack on the challengers.
- Silk E Smooth was thrown out for attacking Steve Somerset outside the ring. This was a good acting job by Somerset, who was never really attacked by Smooth, who protested before heading to the back.
- The Even Stevens sharpened up the talons and worked to dissect Alvin Alvarez using double team moves and lots of trash talking to keep his focus down.
- Keeping Andre out of the ring was a sound strategy, but with Azure and Alvarez down in the ring, Collins ran to the corner to try and knock Andre off the apron. Turnabout being fair play, the referee saw this and threw him out of ringside.
- Andre’s 6’7″ 300 pound frame gave the champions the advantage again and Alvarez a breather, but the challengers fought on. However, after a double choke slam from Andre, followed with a running splash into the corner from Alvarez and a big boot from the big man, the champions retained.
WINNERS AND STILL VPW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: THE ABSOLUTE BRAND
KARLO VICE vs MIKE ANTHONY vs BRYCE DONOVAN
- Before the match started, Karlo Vice tried to create an alliance with Mike Anthony. When he was rejected, he tried to make one with Bryce Donovan. He accepted, and Vice went for a front kick, but Donovan saw it coming.
- Donovan and Anthony took turns teeing off against Vice before dumping him outside the ring, giving them the focus in the ring.
- Karlo Vice re-entered for battle and took a beating for hit, but escaped the clutches of Anthony, and just in time, too. Donovan charged with a spear that took Anthony out.
- The sheer power of Bryce Donovan kept him in the match but the resilience of his opponents kept them going. But after being knocked out the ring, Anthony was able to connect with a ripcord clothesline and cover Karlo Vice for the win.
WINNER: MIKE ANTHONY
THE MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING
CHAMPION COACH MAMMONE vs THE INFLUENCE’S KYLER KHAN
- During the introductions, Khan attacked Coach. Mammone, on his way to the ring, was ready for his challenger as they battled outside the ring to the concession tables. They continued to battle until the referee was somehow able to guide them back to the ring to start the match.
- Coach was able to start the match strong and in control until he went over the top rope. While trying to skin the cat, Khan took advantage and choked him out.
- The two battled outside the ring, with Khan working on the champion and wearing him down before throwing him back inside, working on the arm the Influence broke in January.
- Khan pulled out Coach’s whistle and ran the ropes, stomping Mammone’s arm. Coach kicked him and took control again, fighting back with one arm.
- Trying to regain momentum, Kyler Khan took his belt off to use it as a weapon but didn’t get to use it.
- Mammone connected with a Stinger splash in the corner, then worked on Khan some more. He went to the well one too many times though, with a second splash in the corner thwarted with Khan pulling the referee in the way.
- Coach kept fighting though, noting the belt on the mat, and looked to use it. Khan gave him a low blow and then grabbed the belt before whipping him like a government mule. He then used the belt as a restraint, tying Mammone up and binding him to the ropes.
- Khan introduced a steel chair but Mammone fought back, despite being tied to the ring. Khan released the bind from the rope and set Mammone in the middle of the ring but Coach broke free. Khan tried to choke Mammone out but the champion fought back.
- Mammone returned the favor and used the belt Khan brought into the ring as a weapon, whipping the challenger. Teasing the chair again, the champion hesitated. Khan lured him in, but instead of hitting Coach, he punched the chair. Mammone connected with a reverse DDT and covered Khan, with the second official storming the ring for the three count.
WINNER AND STILL VPW CHAMPION: COACH MAMMONE
