AML Wrestling: Bulletproof Results From June 28, 2015
On Sunday, June 28, 2015, AML Wrestling brought their monthly TV taping to the AML Arena in Winston Salem, NC. The event known as BULLETPROOF, was an exciting night of action in the squared circle. Here are the results.
Prior to the matches, the entire AML locker room circled the ring as ring announcer Tim Blaze led a traditional “Ten Bell Salute” honoring the late Dusty Rhodes and Buddy Landell, both of whom passed away this month.
In a HOT opener , Lance Anoai (the son of Samu of the Headshrinkers and the grandson of Afa the Wild Samoan) pinned LI Green at 9:59 after his patented Wild Samoan splash. This was the AML debut for both men, a wild, athletic affair that had the capacity crowd on its feet for most of the match.
AML Chairman Tracy Myers and General Manager Brian Hawks then presented Caprice Coleman with the newly-created AML Championship belt. Coleman responded to the criticism of the controversial end to the Fatal Four Way that won him the championship in May; among other thinly-veiled jabs at challenger King Shane Williams’ complaints after the match, Coleman openly wonderied if Williams was a “king” from “Neverland.”
2. In tag team action, King Culture (Scotty Matthews and Raphael King) beat the Geordie Bulldogs (Sean and Mark Denny) when Matthews hit Sean Denny with his Nap Sack Cutter and pinned him at 11:56, The Bulldogs did acquit themselves well in their AML debut, employing excellent double team work on Matthews especially, but the newly-minted King Culture duo was too much for them.
3. Amanda Rodriguez defeated Devyn Nicole in her first AML match by DQ at 6:54 in women’s action. Referee Jeff Bunton had to step in and take brass knuckles away from Rodriguez, who was unsuccessful in hiding them from the official. While Bunton’s back was turned getting rid of the foreign object, Rodriguez simulated being hit by the steel chair she was holding, and then tossed it to her opponent Nicole. She writhed on the floor Eddie Guerrero-style until Bunton turned around, and the hapless official disqualified Nicole.
4. El Blanco Gordito beat Timmy Lou Retton (with Roni Nicole) after a Gordito Bomb at 10:23 in the AML debut for both men. It was a highly entertaining match, and this match showcased both men’s talents for what portends to be a bright future.
5. “The Mid Atlantic Badass” Damien Wayne and “Dark Child” Chance Prophet battled to a bloody 15 minute time-limit draw in what was clearly the most violent match of the night. Both men took the fight to one another in and out of the ring, but the match ended with no victor. AML Chairman Tracy Myers authorized a five-minute extension on the match, but Chance Prophet demurred, saying he’d live to fight the Mid Atlantic badass another day.
6. The Washington Bullets (Jon and Trey Williams) upset the Heatseekers (Elliot Russell and Sigmon) at 17:35 after the brother team hit Sigmon with their “Marion Berry” combination finisher (a backstabber into an ace crusher). Another seesaw battle in the teams’ second meeting, this represents the Heatseekers’
7. Sonjay Dutt beat Cedric Alexander by disqualification at 12:20. While Dutt was straddling the middle rope, Alexander apparently lost his mind and blatantly kicked the rope up, effecting a low blow in full view of referee Jeff Bunton. After Bunton disqualified him, Alexander attacked the referee, knocking him out cold. This ruined what was shaping up to be a match of the year candidate; it will be interesting to see what Cedric Alexander’s attitude change means for his pursuit of the championship held by his former tag partner Caprice Coleman.
8. In Triple Threat Elimination action, Caprice Coleman pinned King Shane Williams w/ Queen Taylor (who had previously eliminated “The Ring Wrecker” Vordell Walker after his own piledriver) at 13:31 after a crucifix piledriver (!) to retain the AML Wrestling Championship. Vordell Walker turned the tide after he was eliminated, when he struck Queen Taylor outside the ring. When the Queen hit the mat, a distracted Shane Williams took his eye off of Coleman, who was able to eliminate Williams himself shortly thereafter. A defiant Vordell Walker then stormed out of the ring while the King attended to the needs of his queen.
