Best Of The Best Results April 22nd 2017
“Kingpin” Johnny Flynn (W/ Draven Vargas) vs. Patrick Large (W/ MJ)
With Patrick and MJ’s old Hi-V buddy Draven Vargas at ringside the tension in this match was high from the moment the bell rang. It didn’t take long for Vargas to use his presence as a distraction giving Flynn a major advantage and allowing him to take control. However, Pat’s drive and determination was too much for Flynn to keep down. Pat was able to catch Flynn with the Tight Fit for the victory.
DOA Tag-Team Championship Match
Beauty And The Bod (Kellen Raeth & Damon James) W/ Johnny Paradise & Al Tubbs
vs. The Hess Dynasty (Wade and Dominik Hess)
Kellen and Damon decided they didn’t want to come to the ring alone to start this match. Their Co-Best partners Johnny Paradise and Al Tubbs Esq. accompanied them to the ring to give “moral support” in their quest for the tag-team gold. Dom and Wade didn’t back down from the 4-on-2 challenge though, they came to the ring strong and prideful ready to kick the ass of anyone that got in their way. This match was hard hitting and full of action and even featured a tremendous dive from Dom onto the members of Co-Best taking most of them out. Unfortunately, the numbers game caught up to the Hess Dynasty though and Beauty And The Bod were able to score the victory to become the new DOA Tag-Team Champions.
Fatal 4-Way No. 1 Contenders Match for the DOA Pure Wrestling Championship
Johnny Paradise vs. Draven Vargas vs. Kenny K vs. Udo
This was probably the most exiting match of the night featuring some of the most fast paced action and insane moves. These four left everything on the table for a chance to prove they were the one worthy of being next in line to challenge for the Pure Championship. Newcomer Kenny K didn’t disappoint in his debut, hitting some high impact moves that certainly would have given him a victory in a 1-on-1 match. However, Johnny Paradise would be the one to get his hand raised in the end, securing him a spot against the winner of the tournament finale later in the evening.
Sonico vs. Nicolas Radford (W/ Rusty Diamond)
This match began with Nick and Rusty walking to the ring with a cake in their hands. They quickly grabbed the microphone to let everyone know that it was Sonico’s birthday this week and that they wanted to wish him a very happy birthday. That however wasn’t enough, they wanted to play him their very own special version of “Happy Birthday” that they had recorded themselves. After enduring about 2 minutes of the worst noise to ever come out of a speaker, Sonico had enough and delivered a dropkick to Nick’s face. Feeling Rusty was being left out, Sonico quickly performed a suicide dive to The Purple Wizards sending the cake straight into Rusty’s face. Sonico’s fire was short lived though as Nick and Rusty got the best of him. Nick feigned an injury and distracted the referee allowing Rusty to interfere and give Nick the victory.
Kate Carney vs. Karleena Gore
Newcomer Karleena Gore had her hands full in her first singles match in DOA against one of the best female wrestlers in the Pacific Northwest, Kate Carney. Kate was set on making an example out of Gore and proving to everyone why she dominates the female division, even going as far as sending her tag partner Dr. Kliever to the back. Drexl would then return to the back as well, keeping things even on both sides. Karleena started out with some impressive wrestling against Kate, but Kate’s experience would start to quickly show as she took control. However, Karleena would hit an incredible jumping enzuigiri taking Kate off her feet. Kate would never fully get back on top which would prompt Kliever to come out to give her some support. Kate wasn’t too happy at Kliever being out there and proceeded to give him an earful which in turn led to Karleena rolling Kate up from behind to get the victory. In a fit of rage Kate would then proclaim she was leaving DOA for a while.
Eric Right vs. CJ Edwards
Eric Wright came out to the ring first with a towel over his head. After CJ was in the ring, Eric refused to take the towel off, even with the referee demanding him too. The ref then told Eric if he didn’t take the towel off by the count of 10 he would forfeit the match to CJ. Eric threw the towel off at 6 to reveal a shaved head and a shaved mustache, which garnered huge laughs from the fans. The match then went back and forth between CJ and Eric, with one being on the offense, then the other. Eventually Eric would resort to using a fireball on CJ ending the match in a disqualification. Eric would then take his aggression out on an injured CJ, stomping on him and pushing referees and security. Eventually, Eric was escorted out by security and CJ was taken to get medical attention.
“Rockgod” Ricky Gibson vs. The Devil Drexl
This match started off with Drexl having the upper hand and and fingers full of nipples as he not only nippleplexed Gibson around the ring but also held Ricky for the fans to "TittyTwist". It seemed the dark, demented style of Drexl and Chaos Theory partner Karleena at ringside were too much for the RockGod to handle but Gibson was able to swing the momentum in his favor after Drexl was distracted by Janice The RockGods's Guitar. As Drexl had "Relations" with Rickys number 1 girl in the center of the ring Gibson lost his cool and began savagely beating the Devil in the corner. Things seemed to be working out for Gibson until Quiz appeared at the entrance. This caught Ricky’s attention and as he was distracted Drexl was able to roll him up for the victory.
Social Elite of Xcelence (Todd Royce & Mansom Manny) vs. The Voros Twins
Royce and Manny came to the ring first along with the Instig8tor. After posing to the crowd Royce and Manny got out of the ring and hid off to the side of the entrance. As the Voros were making their entrance the Social Elite jumped them from behind and rammed Chris’s injured shoulder full force into the ring post. After a quick check from the referee, it was quickly ruled that Chris couldn’t compete. However, Patrick wasn’t going to give up that easy, he quickly volunteered to take on the Elite 2-on-1. Unfortunately the duo was too much for Patrick to handle. After a heroic fighting effort, Patrick was ultimately defeated by the Social Elite.
Pure Wrestling Championship Finals
Dr. Kliever vs. Julian Whyt
Possibly the most anticipated match of the evening was the tournament finale for the Pure Wrestling Championship. Julian Whyt took the fight to Pacific Northwest veteran Dr. Kliever in this high stakes match. The back and forth momentum saw both competitors emptying their arsenal hitting each other with just about everything they could to keep the other one down. In the end, Whyt's high flying hard hitting style would emerge victorious by pinning Dr. Kliever to become the new DOA Pure Wrestling Champion.
Pulp Fiction (Quiz & Mike Santiago) vs. The Repaired (Dr. Luther & “Ravenous” Randy Myers)
The Main event saw the return of former DOA Tag-Team Champions, Pulp Fiction. Almost like riding a bike, Quiz and Santiago were working together as if they had never stopped. Sure enough, with the resurgence of the team came the resurgence of the shenanigans. Pulp Fiction was able to take control of Luther and Myers for a good portion of the match. Myers however, after being on the brunt of a beating for the majority of the match, was able to tag in a fresh Luther who took it to both members of Pulp Fiction almost effortlessly. The end resulted in Myers kicking out of a perfectly delivered roaring elbow delivered by Santiago. In Santiago’s disbelief Myers was able to successfully take advantage and score a pin fall on Santiago obtaining the victory for him and Luther.
