Mister Tibbs has been up against the odds before. He inserted himself into a one-on-one championship match between VSK and Josef Von Schmidt and walked away with his first Victory Pro Wrestling championship. He’s faced Eric James in the finals of the first ever King of New York in 2011 after injuring his ankle in the first round earlier in the evening.
At Before the Storm, while his opponent was Johnny Collins, Tibbs also had to deal with the Even Stevens and their outside interference during the match.
And with referee Steven Dumeng knocked out during the match, all three swarmed to keep Tibbs down. Despite the odds against him, Tibbs continued to challenge and fight back. As the original official remained out of commission, junior official John Ryan rushed to the ring to continue the contest.
But with the Even Stevens continuing their attacks, Ryan had to throw the match out and disqualify Collins. Tibbs wins, but Collins retained as a result of a disqualification.
VPW Commissioner Kevin Fulton, watching the match like a hawk, had enough. He grabbed the microphone and announced that at next month’s Blood Sweat and 16 Year anniversary show, Mister Tibbs would get a rematch for the Victory Pro Wrestling championship against Johnny Collins, and to ensure there would be a winner by pinfall or submission, he decreed the match to be a no disqualification match.
Mister Tibbs was able to grab the VPW Championship as Collins and his cohorts protested. They quickly were able to retreat, but Pretty Likeable were put on notice.
What will happen when Victory Pro Wrestling returns to the Sports Arena in St James in February for VPW 150: Blood, Sweat, and 16 Years?
