Firestorm Pro Wrestling celebrated its second anniversary on Dec. 30 with “Destroy Erase Improve 2009” in the Phantasy Nite Club (upstairs from the usual Phantasy Theater venue) in Lakewood, Ohio. Firestorm co-owner JC came out with the ladies of the promotion and Santa Claus to fire up the crowd with some giveaways to kick off the show. This festive atmosphere was ruined by Phil Kinney, who formerly wrestled here as Starless and has returned on the last two shows to attack the men he considers to be JC’s favorites: Patrick Hayes and Rufio Rapier. Kinney got in JC’s face until Rapier’s partner, “Bloody” Morty Rackem, came out of one of the nightclub’s TWO pirate ships to attack him. Kinney battled Rackem in an unofficial match and tried to break his neck by wrapping a chair around it and stomping him from the top rope. However, Santa Claus came back to the ring and clobbered Kinney with a chair! Santa revealed himself to be “Kegstand” Patrick Hayes, who then enjoyed his beer celebration with the fans.

- Matthew Justice won a four-way scramble match over Nicky Valentino, Jason Gory, and “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross with a “Springboard Clothesline” on Valentino 2. M-Dogg, who has just returned from the Wrestling Australia tour looked more pumped than ever. Look for tremendous things from him in the upcoming future.

- Club DB (Justin & CJ, with Brosa and their female companions) retained the Firestorm Pro Tag Team title with a win over Aeroform (Louis Lyndon & Flip Kendrick)

- Lou Marconi came to the ring to complain that Colt Cabana couldn’t wrestle due to a torn hamstring.

“What is wrong with these young wrestlers today?” he asked, since the same thing happened to him with Matt Cross twice earlier in the year. He challenged anyone to come to the ring to fight him. Shiima Xion came out called Marconi a “never was” who hasn’t won a significant title in 10 years. The battle was on and Shiima beat Lou Marconi by DQ when Marconi refused to release the “Crossface” after Xion reached the ropes. Marconi spat in the face of referee Mick Lovin and Firestorm champion Ray Rowe finally had to come to the ring to calm down Marconi.

- Firestorm co-owner Waylon (from the band MushroomHead) & The Aftermath defeated Big League John McChesney & J-Rocc. Waylon had been training with Rowe and showed surprising still in this match. He ended up pinning J-Rocc after a stunner. McChesney & J-Rocc were more concerned with ending Waylon’s music career (by attacking his throat) than with scoring a pin fall.

- “Cleveland Street Fight” Ray Rowe defeated Necro Butcher to retain the Firestorm championship. Necro battled the champ all over the club, behind the bar, onto the other pirate ship, and at one point, Rowe suplexed Necro on the floor! Rowe hit the “Oklahoma Stampede” in a tribute to Steve “Dr. Death” Williams, who had passed away earlier in the day. Rowe finally won the match by powerbombing Necro off the top rope through a table. Rowe wasn’t able to celebrate because McChesney came to the ring and grabbed his fiancée, Samantha Anne. McChesney planted a kiss on her, so she smacked him in the face.

Enraged, McChesney drilled Samantha with a Piledriver! An ambulance was summoned, and four doctors and an EMT came out of the crowd to offer their help to the fallen Samantha. Rowe will have to wait to get McChesney in the ring, because it’s Big Bill Collier’s turn to get a title shot on Feb. 5 at “Dead Man Walking”. Also, Aftermath will battle J-Rocc in an “I Quit” match.
