Vendetta’s Adrenaline Unleashed Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Billy Blade defeated Willie Mack (CMLL, Lucha Va Voom, NWA/Hollywood) to retain the title after a twisting neckbreaker off the top rope. Mack is one of my faves out there- so lightning quick for a big man. Billy’s been a great star up and down the West Coast too.


2. Traditional Championship Wrestling Junior Heavyweight Champion Kincaid defeated Brian Kendrick to retain after a belt shot in a superb match.

3. Pro Wrestling Revolution Women’s Champion “Cheerleader” Melissa Anderson defeated Shelly Martinez to retain after her Air Raid Crash in an excellent match and Shelly’s really come a long way. I have a shot of her debut match yrs ago vs both Melissa and Sara Del Ray when her then group, Epic, came up to APW from Los Angeles.

CAC title def: Melissa makes like “Strongman” in fcarrying Shelly Martinez-possibly best match on the entire, 4 hour+ card




*Mick Foley came out to give a glowing tribute to the late William Alvin Moody a.k.a. Paul Bearer/Percival Pringle III.


4. “Double D” Dave Dutra(now part of APW’s lead manager and booker Markus Mak’s Pink Mink Ink heel group) defeated Will Rood to win the All Pro Wrestling World Wide Internet Championship.


5. APW and Sacramento star J.R. Kratos defeated Gangrel.

Shelly Martinez turned on Gangrel, nailing him with a low blow, leading to the pinfall. She was quite the screamer at ringside and had some of his “wine blood” all over her face. Think she and her once BFF Fifi the Maid are on the outs now since Wendy actually is “with” Flair


6. Vendetta Vixens Five on Five Elimination Tag Team Match: Allie Parker/Bambi Hall/Tab Jackson/Andrea the Giant/Santana Garrett vs. La Rosa Negra/Raven Lake/Melissa Coates/Sexy Samantha/Kat Von Heez.

Santana Garrett defeated Kat Von Heez by pinfall to win the match.


7. New All Pro Wrestling Universal Heavyweight Champion Adam Thornstowe defeated El Chupucabra to retain the title by pinfall after a Moonsault.

9. Gold Rush Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Champion (and APW star) “Golden Boy” Dylan Drake defeated “The Psycho Shooter” Drake Younger to retain by submission with The Sharpshooter/Scorpion Deathlock. Younger is from Indianapolis and is a major deal in Japan.


10. Open Invitational Tag Team Gauntlet match for the All Pro Wrestling/Vendetta Pro Wrestling Unified Tag Team Championship:
