Results

The Jerry Fitzwater Show
Fitzwater came out after the fans were welcomed in. As usual, he was accompanied to the ring by his caveman sidekick Grop. Fitzwater’s first announcement was that about an hour before bell time he received a text message from VPW Champion Mack Daddy Flexx that stated he was not coming and he had no interest in performing in front of the VPW fans. The last time Flexx was in Centereach , he told the fans to go to hell and this time he refused to show up. Flexx had been scheduled to compete against VSK in a Bragging Rights Champion Showdown. This would have been the first time that both singles champions competed against each other in a match. Flexx robbed the fans of that opportunity. Fitzwater then announced that his guest would be a true champion, VPW New York State Champion VSK. VSK spoke about Flexx letting everyone down and that he would never let the fans down. VSK then announced that he added himself as a last minute entry into the Gold Rush Rumble in an effort to become a double champion. At this point, VSK was interrupted by “Slick Sleezy” Sam Shaw. This was the first time that the fans saw Shaw and they immediately hated him. Shaw introduced himself and said that while he was in the Gold Rush Rumble later on, he couldn’t wait and wanted a title match now against VSK.

New York State Championship
VSK (c) d. “Slick Sleezy” Sam Shaw
Shaw was impressive, but it was not his night. VSK continued his winning streak of title defenses. Both men would however be in the rumble later on.

2010 Gold Rush Rumble
This match featured 22 of VPW’s best. Earlier in the night, all 22 drew random numbers to determine their order of entrance. Participants would then enter at two minute intervals. The match ends when it is down to the final four wrestlers. All four would then go on later in the night in a four way elimination match with the winner earning a title match of his choice at the next Centereach show.
Participants, in order of entrance: Mike Magnum, Jason Static, Jay Delta, Flames, Johnny “Muscles” Marinara, Dani DT, Minyon, “Ultra Sexy” Joe So Delicious, Razzle Dazzle, “Cuban Crippler” Ricky Reyes, VSK, K-Fresh, Ben Dejo, Marty Con, E.J. Risk, K-Funk, “German Hammer” Josef Von Schmidt, “Slick Sleezy” Sam Shaw, Mikey Old School, Zombie, Grop, “Smooth Operator” Mike Gallagher, Xander Page

This was easily one of the most exciting matches in VPW history and must be seen to truly appreciate it. The final four were Joe So Delicious, Ricky Reyes, K-Funk and Josef Von Schmidt. The following matches were made after the rumble ended with those individuals that did not qualify for the final match.

VPW Tag Team Championship
“The Resurrection of Tag Team Wrestling” Eclipse (Xander Page & Jay Delta) (c) d. Flames & Mike Magnum w/ Mikey Old School
With Nick Saint nowhere to be found, the newest member of Old School Unlimited, Mike Magnum, teamed up with one half of Crossfire to battle the three-time VPW Tag Team Champions. Unfortunately for Mikey Old School, his team couldn’t dethrone the champions.

Minyon, “Smooth Operator” Mike Gallagher & Zombie w/ Black Rose d. Los Ben Dejos (Marty Con & Ben Dejo) & E.J. Risk
The Zombie chased Los Ben Dejos all over the venue and eventually his team to victory.

Jason Static d. K-Fresh
Having been eliminated earlier in the night by a double team maneuver from both Funky Fresh Boyz, Static got his revenge in this singles match.

2010 Gold Rush Rumble Final Four
“Cuban Crippler” Ricky Reyes d. K-Funk, “German Hammer” Josef Von Schmidt & “Ultra Sexy” Joe So Delicious
Delicious was ganged up on and eliminated first. Then Von Schmidt was next. This left K-Funk and Ricky Reyes to battle it out. As close as Funk got, Reyes was unstoppable. Immediately following the match, Jerry Fitzwater hit the ring to ask Reyes which championship he was going after. Reyes said that he wanted the best VPW had to offer and that was VSK. VSK then came out to confront his challenger. Things started to get physical, but Reyes left the ring, saving his fight for when the gold was at stake.
