Main Event Championship Wrestling TV taping report
August 28, 2010
Monroe City, Ind.
David Miller, PWTorch.com reader


MECW held a TV taping in front of a very enthusiastic crowd at the Blue Jeans Center in Monroe City, Ind. last night. The show will premiere on Evansville's My44 on Saturday, Sep. 4 at 12:00 p.m. EST. Here's a rundown of last night's card:

(1) Shank "The Freak" Barzini destroyed Angel in a brutal beat down that lasted less than one minute.

(2) Tracy Smothers (w/the Smothers family) beat J.P. Lightning. Tons of heat on Smothers, largely due to the frequent interference of his "kids." Near the end of the match, Smothers's daughter was holding onto Lightning's leg when she was attacked by lady wrestler Scarlett Rose, who had apparently seen enough while sitting in the crowd. The outside interference proved to be too much for Lightning in the end, as he was eventually pinned by Smothers. Hot crowd reaction for only the second match on the show.

(3) Steve O beat Matt Boyce. Boyce was accompanied by the flamboyant Christopher "Honey" Love, who was loudly booed by the male crowd for his effeminate ways and crass remarks toward the women in attendance. Boyce tried to use a chain, but dropped it. After getting pinned by Steve O, he pointed to the chain lying on the mat and cried foul, but the referee would have none of it.

(4) Chris Thomas beat Just John. More or less filler, but it did serve it's purpose of furthering the tensions between Thomas and referee Billy Blaze, who was pushed by Thomas throughout the match.

(5) Former WWE Spirit Squad member Kenny Dykstra (Ken Doane) pinned Shane Williams. Dykstra brought his "mother" to ringside with him, much to the crowd's dismay. Often throughout the match, Dykstra would retreat to the corner to be comforted by "Mama Dykstra," leading to funny chants of "You're adopted!" Good for what it was.

(6) "The Natural" Chase Stevens beat "The Headliner" Chris Michaels in the main event. Michaels brought the Smothers family to ringside with him. He claimed that Tracy was his uncle, so his family had a right to be out there. Stevens came out to a warm hometown reception. Once again, a hot crowd thanks to the athleticism and excitement of the match itself, plus the ongoing shenanigans of the Smothers family on the outside. Tracy Smothers finally interfered, giving Chase the victory.

During the ensuing beat down, referee Billy Blaze took matters into his own hands as he began fighting off the heels alongside Stevens. The heels evacuated the ring, then took the mic and hurled insults at Stevens and Blaze. Stevens took the mic and filled the crowd in on the fact that he and Billy Blaze were a tag team years ago and have remained close friends, even though Blaze had to retire due to health issues. All the wrestlers vowed that the war wasn't over yet, as the show came to an end.

Good showing from MECW. They continue to impress with a mixture of solid local talent, independent superstars, and legends.
