DOA returned to the Wattles Boys and Girls Club for a huge charity Event that raised over $1.100 in cash and supplies for the local children of the Boys and Girls Club.
In the opening bout, less then one month away from holding the DOA Tag Team Championship for an entire year The Cunninghams were defeated in a surprising upset by Surgical Steel and Sex Appeal's Dr. Kliever and Kate Carney. The finish saw Kate feign an injury to her ankle causing enough of a distraction to surprise Karl with a spin kick and quick roll up for the 3 count.
Match 2 saw Mike Santiago the man on a mission to destroy King Khash take out his frustrations on the debuting brash and arrogant Damon James. Santiago knocked the debuting James out cold with his Hell Knee No flying knee strike.
After the bout Santiago was jumped by Khash's fellow SHAFT members Kassius Koonz and Mannie Rios as they layed Mike out and told him the Khash accepts Mikes challenge for a last man standing match!
Match 3 was the triple threat elimination match for the DOA Pure Championship between Johnny Paradise, Eric Right and Champion HBQ Quiz. The show stealer HBQ was finally stopped and lost the strap he's held since last fall when behind the referee's back Paradise tossed the Pure belt to Quiz and then took the dive causing the referee to disqualify Quiz and according to Pure Championship rules since HBQ was DQ'd in a Pure title match he will not be able to receive a rematch for a minimum of 6 months. While the referee was forcing Quiz out of the ring a tug of war started over the belt between Right and Paradise resulting in right being knocked out. Paradise went for the pin but the distracted ref was late to count and right got his foot on the ropes. As Paradise argued with the referee over the late count The Gentleman Brawler made it to his corner for a drink of Grandma Rights Tonic and a rejuvenated Eric Right was able to slap on his sleeper causing Paradise to go unconscious giving Right his first reign with the Pure Championship
Match 4 went from a tag team street fight to a handicap match as The Purple Wizards Jumped Skag Rollins the night before the show causing a minor concussion and major trauma to his leg. This left Drexl to fight both Radford and Diamond on his own. Early in the bout Radford launched Drexl into the chairs dislocating his already injured shoulder to the horror of the DOA fans. The end came when with only 1 arm The Human Horror show threw a Super "Nut" kick party and stripping diamond to his daisy duke shorts and making Radford tap out to his Koji Clutch
Match 5 Saw to former partners and friends collide as the newly saved Draven Vargas went to war with Pat Large in the Good Book on a Pole Match. Before the bout Draven irritated that his words were going above the DOA fans heads he introduced his Youth Pastor of his church Gordon Shandling or as he said the kids call him Youth Pastor G! In an amazing clash of hard hitting high flying action Pat was the first to get the book and nail Vargas with it but realize the book was not loaded and actually empty. As he tossed the book to the side Youth Pastor G pulled a large stone out of his pocket and placed it in the Good Book giving Draven the opportunity to knock out his former partner for the win.
After the bout Vargas and Shandling attempted to hit MJ with the book but were stopped by CJ Edwards who made the save and challenged Gordon to a match
Match 6 was impromptu as CJ Edwards took to the skies and defeated the follower of Vargas Youth Pastor G in great one on one contest that saw Draven attempt to interfere to no luck.
The Main Event was a 6 man war as DOA Grand Champion Ethan HD teamed with fellow SHAFT members Kassius Koonz and Mannie Rios against Chris Riddick, Wade Hess, and the DOA wrestling debut of Dominik Hess (the ref formally known as DIck Champagne)
It was all out mayhem throughout the match as referee Bronco Lubitch barely kept control of the Action. The end came as Chris Riddick pinned Champion Ethan HD out of nowhere for the 3 count. After the bout things went from bad to worse as The Instig8tor long time Hess friend turned against Riddick nailing him in his already damaged sternum with a 2x4. Mike Santiago stormed the ring wanting revenge for the early beatdown from Rios and Koonz and as referee's tried to hold him back Santiago forearmed referee Clint Griffon right in the jaw.
Due to new rules in place the DOA Board of Directors is forced to suspend Santiago for the month of September. He will be back in October and we hope to finally bring you the match that has been several months in the making Mike Santiago vs King Khash in a last man standing match.
