DEFIANCE/BRAZEN PRESENTS: May Day! May Day! We’re Going Down!

Aztec Theater

San Antonio, TX

Attendance: 1,096

 

Before the show, the fans were treated to meet-and-greets with some of the rising stars of the BRAZEN Brand in addition to the new BRAZEN Champion, one-half of the WrestleFriends “Manpower” Jack Mace, as well as lines going out to the door to meet the hometown (well, home state) heroes, The Stevens Dynasty! Though there was still plenty of bad blood past between The WrestleFriends and The Stevens Dynasty, Mace and the Dynasty were ordered to keep things civil otherwise risk losing their respective title opportunities. Meet and greets with the likes of Flex Kruger, Minute, Levi Cole, Thugs 4 Hire and others rounded out the pre-match hours before bell time.

 

Match One: Minute versus David Hightower

--A true David v. Goliath match to start the show against the home state hero, Minute, from El Paso.

--That said, the 275-pound Hightower owned him during the opening moments including a Powerslam and Spinebuster for near falls!

--The end came when Hightower hit the corner and Minute landed the Estrella Fugaz (Rope Run Corner Dropkick) that popped the crowd followed by a Phoenix Splash called The Minute Detail! MINUTE WITH THE UPSET!

WINNER: Minute via pinfall @ 6:52 with Minute Detail

 

Match Two: The Gulf Coast Connection (Aaron King, Theodore Cain and Crescent City Kid) vs. The Safety Patrol (Sgt. Safety, Jeff Belltron and Dick Flanagan)

--Before the match, The Safety Patrol ordered the fans to quiet down. Instead, the crowd jeered him even louder. The GCC came out and partied louder. That inspired a big brawl!

--After GCC ran through the Patrol during the opening, Flanagan cracked Crescent City Kid with a Stop sign, allowing them to take control. After a couple of minutes on offense, CCK landed a double Jumping DDT on Belltron and Flanagan.

--Big Theodore Cain ran through them all, including a Pinball (repeated Irish Whips on Safety) and then landed Bottom’s Up for the win!

WINNER: The Gulf Coast Connection via pinfall @ 7:16 with Bottom’s Up (Cain over Sgt. Safety)

 

Match Three: Bobby Horrigan vs. Mascara De Muerte IV

--Another David vs. Goliath battle, but this one…

--MDMIV went on the attack against the Irish Bomber with Dropkicks and a Somersault Plancha to the outside, but Horrigan overwhelmed him with a big Crossbody in only fifty-seven seconds!

--The four-hundred pound broad Irishman with the victory!

WINNER: Bobby Horrigan via pinfall @ :57 with Flying Crossbody on MDMIV.

 

After the match, Horrigan called out for a title opportunity. He didn’t care about Victor Vacio being #1 Contender or that Kruger or Hoffman were getting title shots. He wanted one too!

 

Match Four: Thugs 4 Hire (Hurtlocker Holt and Emilio “The Pigeon” Byrd) and Louisiana Bulldogs (Denver and Oliver Brandt) vs. The Dunson Clan (Todd and Richie Dunson) and To The Maxx (“Exclusive” Eric Wilson and “Lovely” Lance Mingle)

--Denver and Oliver took the Dunsons to school with suplexes while Thugs 4 Hire beat down Mingle and Wilson until Byrd got worked over by the duo. Mingle softened him up for his signature Cloverleaf, but Byrd landed THE WIND UP and KTFOed him!

Match Seven: BRAZEN Championship - “Manpower” Jack Mace © vs. Flex Kruger vs. Reinhardt Hoffman

--The former two champions worked over the current champion and dumped him out on the floor on the steel steps! That gave Kruger and Hoffman the chance to get their belt back.

-Mace ran wild on Hoffman with a Pop-up Headbutt and then nearly beat Kruger off the Wild Out (Canadian Backbreaker Drop) for a nearfall!

--Kruger came back and landed The Flex-Plex on Mace, but Hoffman broke up the cover! He then locked in the STF on Kruger! He was locked in tight but before he could tap, moments later Mace came back and crushed BOTH men with the Super Piccadilly Press (Diving Splash) for the BIG BIG WIN!

WINNER: “Manpower” Jack Mace via pinfall @ 15:52 with the Super Piccadilly Press (Mace over Hoffman)

 

Main Event: DEFIANCE World Trios Championships: No Justice No Peace (Theo Baylor, Roosevelt Owens and The Neighborhoodlum) © vs. The Stevens Dynasty (Scott, Bo and George Stevens)

--The normally hated Stevens Dynasty were given the hero’s welcome over NJNP, who were reviled by the crowd. Led by Lucius Owens, NJNP looked to retain their Trios Titles again.

--Big Rosey came back and landed a big boot on Stevens followed by a Samoan Drop that nearly had the fans rioting, had it not been for George pulling the ref out of the ring!

--Eventually the Stevens ganged up on Big Rosey! Bo-dog by Bo! FIST by Scott Stevens! That was followed by the biggest Texan Slam on record by George!

-ONE! TWO! THREE!!!!!!!

WINNER: and NEW DEFIANCE World Trios Champions, The Stevens Dynasty @ 21:04 via pinfall (George on Roosevelt Owens)
