New champs in Throwback, Cat and Cop. But Champ Mammone? Not so fast, says Commish

Coach Mammone celebrates

It all started with a foot on the ropes, if you ask VPW Champion Mister Tibbs. A foot on the ropes in his champion vs champion match at the King of New York. Where senior official John Q counted Tibbs down for a three count, despite his foot being on the ropes.

But if you ask Coach Mammone, it started when he came to help Steve Gibki and Tibbs at Before the Storm when King of New York Jay Delta and Eric James attacked Gibki from behind. It was at that night Tibbs dropped Mammone with a stunner.

At Glory Days, Coach Mammone and Mister Tibbs hashed it out on the Coach’s Corner, but before a fight broke out, Tibbs said that he was paid to fight in the main event, and that’s where he would take out Coach Mammone and show why Tibbs is the Man of the Decade, and not the Flavor of the Month.

THE GIANT ANDRE vs RYAN GALEONE

  • This battle between two giants started off with a lot of back and forth action as both men were jockeying for position.
  • Andre’s ring experience helped him take control before Galeone started to show signs of flight.
  • Andre dominated Galeone with power moves and attacks, but Galeone came back in the end.

WINNER: RYAN GALEONE

KING OF NEW YORK JAY DELTA (w/ Puppet Jay Delta) vs PERCIVAL THE THIRD

Before the match, Delta demanded respect, and he would get this respect with Percival the Third kissing his feet.

  • The young Percival was outmatched by VPW’s King, who controlled the match from bell to bell.
  • Percival did show signs of life, but Delta’s ring savvy proved to be too much.

WINNER: KING OF NEW YORK JAY DELTA

TRIPLE THREAT ELIMINATION MATCH
JAY STAR/TRIPLE L “LADIES LOVE LIAM”
vs THE EVEN STEVENS
vs TOTAL KONTROL (LAWRENCE SPIRAL / DEZMOND COLE)

Before the match started, VPW Commissioner Kevin Fulton came out and announced that he felt it was not fair for the Even Stevens to have to win the match twice, so he made the match a one fall to a finish contest.

  • Spiral showed he just has no fear, flying through the air when needed. Cole showed he can also take to the air, as both Total Kontrol took to flight to bring the match momentum in their favor.
  • The Even Stevens were able to take control back with their “brotherly” experience.
  • Star and Liam were able to scrap with the rest of them as well, and showed an allegiance with the Even Stevens during the match.
  • Even after taking a Steven Flow, Spiral and Cole were able to fight back and pick up the victory.

WINNERS: TOTAL KONTROL

THE ULTRA VIOLETTE vs ERIS RAYNE

The former HOG women’s champion made her debut against the Princess of Steampunk in this women’s match.

  • The Ultra Violette didn’t come to play and smile with the fans, she came for a fight, and she brought it to Eris.
  • Eris was able to return the favor but The Ultra Violette looked to control the match and pick up the win.
  • Looking for a high impact assault, The Ultra Violette took to the top turnbuckle. This would be her downfall as she miscalculated a dropkick, leaving her prone to a camel clutch.

WINNER BY SUBMISSION: ERIS RAYNE

After the match, Eris announced that next month, VPW would be presenting the Queen of New York, this year the tournament would be held in an over the top rope battle royal, and that she would be the first competitor. Eris also went on to say that she would not only be the first competitor, but that she would be the new Queen of New York!

“LAID BACK” LANCE ANDERSON vs THE VESTLER JACK TOMLINSON

At Blood Sweat and 13 Years, Razzle Dazzle was thrown through a table, at the hands of Alvin Alvarez. Since then, things have been… different. This continued as he made his “debut” as Lance Anderson, a laid back, casual wrestler.

  • Jack Tomlinson returned to VPW to challenge Anderson, starting with a viral impact designed to generate some serious traffic.
  • Anderson casually returned the volley, controlling the match and just enjoying his time.
  • After Anderson avoided his first stomp, Tomlinson finished the match to seal the deal.

WINNER: JACK TOMLINSON

After the match, Anderson was pretty chill, hanging out with Tomlinson and walking back like things were just cool.

DOORWAY TO HELL MATCH
“ABSOLUTE” ALVIN ALVAREZ vs STOCKADE

To win this match, you must put your opponent through not one but two doors.

Stockade came back after a two month suspension for attacking Commissioner Fulton. His return included a series of toys from under the ring, including a ladder, some chairs, a couple of crutches, and of course the doors.

  • Alvarez started off with a hand shake, a bygones be bygones gesture, which Stockade saw right through as he started his assault.
  • Using the crutches, Stockade took early control, leaving Alvarez to leave the building – only to return as DA Black Sheep stalked him back to the ring.
  • The Deathmatch Asgardian took to the top rope, after setting up a table bridge from the ring to the guardrail, which was his downfall as Alvarez knocked him down through the table for the first fall.
  • With a fire in his eyes, Alvarez brought the chairs into play, using them to wear down Stockade for the second door.
  • Sensing the match was close to ending, Stockade came back and fought his way back to set up a door in the middle of the ring, and then sending Alvarez through it.
  • After registering the tying fall, Stockade used the broken wood and smashed it over Alvarez’s head, until every piece was shattered into nothing.
  • Stockade almost cost himself the win after being driven into a pyramid of chairs that he set up, but a cocky Alvarez distracted himself after almost launching himself into the third door. This gave Stockade the opening to spear Alvarez through and pick up the win.

WINNER: STOCKADE

Eric James hijacked the intermission and started singing 90s songs until closing out with a song about his opponent, Steve Gibki,

UNDISPUTED NEW YORK STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
CHAMPION STEVE GIBKI vs
THE THROWBACK ERIC JAMES

  • The “Do’er” took control with his size and strength advantage, but when it went outside the ring, James’ experience on the outside gave him control.
  • While James dominated the technical game, Gibki’s power game kept taking the Throwback off track.
  • After a Feel Good Drag, James rolled out of the ring to escape defeat. With the official checking on him, King Delta came to the ring and attacked Gibki.
  • James was able to roll back in and steal the win.

WINNER AND NEW UNDISPUTED NEW YORK STATE CHAMPION: ERIC JAMES

VPW WOMENS’ CHAMPIONSHIP
CHAMPION ARIELA NYX vs ASHLEY AMERICA

The renaissance of the Women’s division continued by bringing in Ashley America back to VPW to challenge Ariela Nyx in her first title defense.

  • Ashley searched long and hard for a victory tonight.
  • Ariela showed she was up to the task of the Bald Eagle, PA, native.
  • In the end, the champion ended the quest for Ashley to secure the win.

WINNER: ARIELA NYX

VPW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
CHAMPIONS THE FAST AND FURRIEST (BRYCE DONOVAN/JOHNNY COLLINS)
vs THE CAT AND COP CONNECTION (FIGHTER CAT/GRAMMAR COP)

  • Both teams started off with a mutual respect, giving each other hand shakes.
  • The back and forth action between the teams escalated.
  • Bryce Donovan is a beast – he took a beating but was able to dish back twice as hard to keep the champions alive.
  • The longer the match got, the harder the challengers clawed to stay alive.
  • A quick tag by Collins surprised Donovan, and ultimately lead to the downfall of the champions.

WINNERS AND NEW VPW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: THE CAT AND COP CONNECTION

After the match, Donovan and Collins were trying to talk it out, until Donovan’s frustration started to get the better of him. With Collins trying to bring him back to talk some more, Donovan finally shoved his partner before heading to the back.

VICTORY PRO WRESTLING CHAMPIONSHIP
CHAMPION MISTER TIBBS vs COACH MAMMONE

Before Coach Mammone even made it to the ring, he was attacked from behind. VPW Champion Mister Tibbs used the championship to surprise the challenger.

The two fought outside the ring, with Mammone stunned by the surprise onslaught. Tibbs threw Mammone into the ring, then connected with a stunner before demanding official John Q to start the match. He hesitated, saying that he had to check on the challenger.

The champion then grabbed the official and demanded the match be started and that he count to three. With reservation, he did just that. With the bell run, Tibbs went for the cover and at two and a half, Mammone kicked out.

Furious, Tibbs admonished the official yet again, this time shoving him into the corner and asking why he didn’t count faster. After being shoved a third time, John Q returned the favor and shoved Tibbs back into the waiting Mammone who in turn used a stunner of his own to capture a quick three count for the win.

WINNER AND NEW….

Coach Mammone celebrated as he was announced as the new VPW Champion, but then came VPW Commissioner Kevin Fulton, with the official John Q in a headlock and asked him:

  • Did you not fast count Kevin Tibbs? Q said he did.
  • Did you not physically interfere in this match up? Q said he did.
  • A physical interference during from an outside party during a match up is normally ruled a disqualification, yes or no? Q said yes.

At that point, the Commish suspended the official for a month and declared, via disqualification, that Mister Tibbs had won the match.

WINNER BY DISQUALIFICATION AND STILL VPW CHAMPION: MISTER TIBBS

Fulton then demanded that Mammone return the championship to it’s rightful owner.

As Mammone protested, the newly crowned New York State Champion Eric James and the King of New York Jay Delta assaulted Coach from behind.

The pack of wolves continued their onslaught and looked to be ready to put him away for good with a vicious triple bomb but Steve Gibki rushed from the back and ran everyone from the ring.

Mammone then challenged Tibbs for a tag match next month. Tibbs accepted, but who will he be teaming with?

We’ll find out at the Queen of New York May 11 when VPW returns to Centereach.
