To start the show, Coach Mammone’s music played – but out came the Influence instead. Commissioner Kevin Fulton said that Mammone was out for the night, and that at March 7’s Blood Sweat and 14 Years anniversary show, it would be Kyler Khan against Coach Mammone for the VPW Championship – and if Coach Mammone is not cleared to wrestle, then he will forfeit the championship.
He then said that tonight, it would be the Influence that would walk away with the King of New York trophy. New York State Champion Eric James intervened, stating that last month he didn’t want the help, and this month against Stockade he wanted to do it on his own. The Influence joked about it, winking in jest, but James made it clear he was serious and he wanted to do this on his own.
KING OF NEW YORK SEMI-FINALS
NEW YORK STATE CHAMPION ERIC JAMES vs STOCKADE
- In the tournament, the championship would not be on the line. The match started off with both combatants giving it their all.
- During the match, Stockade tried to pull the mat from ringside up. At one point, James put it back down to the delight of the fans. Later in the match, the mat was pulled back again – this time Stockade to give Eric James a piledriver, but he reversed it. He then gave Stockade a back drop onto the unprotected floor.
- The champion was on offense, and on his way to advancing hitting not one, not two, but three top rope elbow drops but Stockade kept coming back.
- Stockade was able to hit a spear and secure the win.
WINNER AND ADVANCING TO THE FINALS : STOCKADE
KING OF NEW YORK SEMI-FINALS
JAY DELTA (w/ Puppet Jay Delta) vs “LAID BACK” LANCE ANDERSON
- Before the match, Anderson wanted to share a drink with Delta. Delta shoved the drink from his hand, but Anderson held on and turned it around, hitting Delta in the head to start the match.
- Delta took control, ending the hijinks of Anderson, assaulting him in the corner.
- Looking to finish Anderson, Delta attacked him, but Anderson dropped down, leaving Delta to spill outside the ring, busting his head on the railing.
- Anderson pinned Puppet Jay Delta for a two count, but then the real Jay Delta came back into the ring with a discus elbow and DDT to end the match.
WINNER AND ADVANCING TO THE FINALS : JAY DELTA
ANASTASIA MORNINGSTAR/NEVAEH CHANTELLE vs ERIS SPIRAL/ENVY
- Last month, Anastasia and Nevaeh had some issues during their match. Teaming up again, they looked to put those differences aside.
- Eris Spiral returned to VPW for the first time since getting married.
- Envy was a spitfire, giving her all during the match and showing the fans she was not playing games. Spiral was excited to be back and showed she was ready to compete. On the other side, Anastasia and Nevaeh played the one-up game, tagging themselves in and trash talking each other instead of focusing on their match.
- While not exactly the greatest game plan, their one-upsmanship helped them somehow pick up the win.
WINNERS: NEVEAH CHANTELLE/ANASTASIA MORNINGSTAR
After the match, Nevaeh and Anastasia kept the trash talking going with each of them taking credit for the win.
MISTER TIBBS vs BRYCE DONOVAN vs GRAMMAR COP
- This triple threat match started with Mister Tibbs stalling by slipping in and out of the ring before finally getting thrown into the ring by Fighter Cat. They then threw out Tibbs and went after each other.
- The two went back and forth until Fulton got involved, letting Tibbs come back and get involved. The dominant Tibbs controlled both Donovan and Cop with kicks.
- Grammar Cop came back into the ring on fire, lighting up both Tibbs and Donovan, focusing on the former VPW Champion, who was able to stay alive.
- After taking out Donovan, Mister Tibbs turned to focus on Grammar Cop, who connected with a rolling DDT to steal the win.
WINNER: GRAMMAR COP
After the match, Fighter Cat came into the ring and made an announcement that stunned the VPW Faithful in attendance.
“There’s a reason why, I am not competing tonight. A year ago I was diagnosed with scoliosis and as long as it wasn’t bothering me, I was able to compete. It’s bothering me now,” he said.
“After talking with the doctor, I’ve decided that I am retiring from in-ring competition. I just wanted to say, thank you all.”
The fans applauded Fighter Cat before he continued. “I started here in VPW, I trained over the past 6 years, the trainers that gave me a chance…”
The locker room came out to the stage area, with the Absolute Brand and others coming to the ring to give him a hug and thank him.
Once he regained his composure, he continued. “There are some people who aren’t here today who helped me along the way, I appreciate them for what they’ve done. Every trainer that I’ve had, every person I’ve competed against, every person I’ve competed with, all I can say is thank you.”
Grammar Cop then said a few words of his own. “Fighter Cat, you were with me the first day I walked into training, and you’ve been with me ever since. We trained together, we competed against each other, we tagged together, we’ve won championships together, we’ve traveled together. Man, you’ve been my best ally in this business, I love you so much.”
He then acknowledged Fighter Cat’s work both in the ring and behind the scenes before Fighter Cat’s original theme played.
SIX MAN TAG TEAM ACTION
KARLO VICE/PERCIVAL THE THIRD/”DIMEPIECE” AARON ROURKE vs MIKE ANTHONY/DEZMOND COLE/LAWRENCE SPIRAL
- At first glance, you’d think the biggest ego would belong to Karlo Vice, but Aaron Rourke looked to overshadow his partner. During the match, there would be another shift.
- Anthony took the beating early on, but was able to fight back and keep the hope alive for his team.
- Cole tagged in and showed his dominance until things got out of control with everyone getting a chance to hit the spotlight.
- The beginning of the end came when Rourke did a beautiful flip into the corner to connect an elbow, but instead of Dezmond Cole, it was Percival the Third who he hit. This gave Cole the edge to pick up the win.
WINNERS: MIKE ANTHONY/LAWRENCE SPIRAL/DEZMOND COLE
After the match, Percival gave his partner a hug, understanding Rourke just made a mistake. Then, he gave Rourke a low blow before almost leaving the ring.
He returned, then attacked Rourke again. With his now former partner on the ground, Percival grabbed a couple of steel chairs from under the ring and used them to injure Rourke, who needed medical attention to head to the back.
KYLER KHAN vs BOBBY ORLANDO
- “Look up!” The match started with Bobby Orlando looking up, then asking Kyler Khan to do the same, before smacking him. Khan decided to return the favor, telling Orlando to look up. Instead, Orlando slapped him. Frustrated, Khan complained about it. He wanted a slap in return, so as he wound up and swung, Orlando ducked and slapped him again.
- After the hijinks, Khan was able to gain control, dominating with various submission moves wearing Orlando down.
- Orlando came back, but made the mistake of heading up to the top rope, allowing Khan to distract Orlando with Bobby Jr. This gave him a chance to roll up Orlando near the ropes and then use them to cheat for the win.
WINNER: KYLAR KHAN
VPW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
PRETTY LIKEABLE (Johnny “Pretty Boy”Collins/Steve Somerset) vs THE ABSOLUTE BRAND (Alvin Alvarez/Giant Andre w/ Silk E Smooth)
- Before the match started, Collins and Somerset attacked the champions to get an advantage.
- There were lots of tags from Collins and Somerset, keeping Alvarez down and trying to keep Andre out. Despite a couple of legitimate tags, referee James Balash did not see them, so Andre stayed out as Collins and Somerset continued to dominate.
- Once Andre was in, it was time for the champions to take control, but the challengers persisted. At one point, Collins tried to introduce the tag team championship belt but Silk E Smooth intervened, giving Andre and Alvarez the advantage and the eventual win.
WINNER AND STILL VPW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: THE ABSOLUTE BRAND
After the match, the challengers attacked Alvarez and Andre with low blows, then focused on Smooth before kicking him as well.
EVIE DE LA ROSA vs “FACEBREAKER” MEGAN MASON
- Evie de la Rosa made her VPW debut in incredible fashion, controlling the Facebreaker during the early parts of the match.
- Mason capitalized on a mistake from her opponent and eventually connected with her finish.
WINNER: MEGAN MASON
After the match, Mason said, “I seem to keep beating every girl that steps in this ring with me. But there’s one girl who has eluded me, one girl who has exactly what I want… Karen BamBam.”
She then challenged Karen BamBam for the title.
KING OF NEW YORK FINALS
During intermission, ring announcer John E Radioo announced that Jay Delta was not cleared to perform and that in his place would be Lance Anderson, Delta’s opponent.
STOCKADE vs LANCE ANDERSON
As Anderson was approaching the ring, members of the Influence attacked him. Commissioner Fulton then announced that since a member of the Influence won, a member of Influence would replace Delta and that would be Mister Tibbs.
With the announcement, Kyler Khan attacked Stockade from behind. Eric James was at ringside protesting the attack, and Mister Tibbs grabbed his New York State championship belt.
- The bell rang, and as Tibbs stood in the ring with the belt in hand, Eric James jumped on the apron and took his belt back.
- Stockade was able to regain his composure before connecting with a spear to pick up the win.
WINNER AND 2020 KING OF NEW YORK: STOCKADE
After the match, Stockade then speared Kyler Khan, Commissioner Fulton, and Mister Tibbs again before celebrating his victory with the fans.
