The Great Eye

I came to cut you up
Jan 29, 2004
(FADEIN: Reggie Schrader at a desk on a balcony at the TD Bank North Garden, fans can be seen exiting the arena behind him.)

SCHRADER: What a night of action that has just concluded here tonight. The Circuit opened up the Prodigy Classic champion with 8 matches that will be sure to have folks talking for a long time.

The show opened with Joey Melton fighting Shawn Hart, and while Melton did look a little bit older, he didn’t wasn’t pretending to be dead on this night. Melton was putting on a clinic in the ring brutally smothering Hart’s offense and working the knee until he secured the figure four. Hart fought to the ropes but Melton kept up the onslaught, and Hart unable to really get on track this night, fell victim to a second figure four in the middle of the ring, and either blacked out or lost track of where his shoulders were as the ref counted him out.

WINNER: Joey Melton at 11:38 (Figure Four -> Pin)

This led to the other half of bracket 4, as Anarky squared off with the previously unknown El Pablo Windham. Windham stalled constantly and spent his time trying to annoy and frustrate the EPW World Champion, but it was all for not once Anarky got his hands on Windham, a brutal beating was doled out, that finally ended with a Chaos Breaker and a pin.

WINNER: Anarky at 9:03 (Chaos Breaker -> Pin)

Then Bracket three opened up with a battle of two long time rivals as Impulse fought High Flyer in a match many were expecting to be a barn burner, but sometimes things don’t go as planned, Impulse got a hold on High Flyer’s arm and bent, twisted and pulled on it like a lion ripping at prey. He was relentless in his attack on the limb and Flyer never really found a way to escape him. Flyer’s offense was thwarted and Impulse kept up the pressure till he finally got High Flyer set up and nailed with a Sudden Impact that got the fall and advanced him in the tournament.

WINNER: Impulse at 7:12 (Sudden Impact -> Pin)

It was around this time that we were told that backstage Michael Manson was to be interviewed, over the video screens came a video of a man who appeared to be Manson having trouble climbing steps, smoking, and it looked like he’d let himself go, that and the rumors about Manson having a bad heart had fans wondering what he’d look like come time for the interview, but when it was to begin, Manson was found face down in the locker room, the apparent victim of an attack by Mr. Myers and Stalker.

We then got to the contest between Lane Cash and Shane Stevens as the two men started off in an all out brawl, but Cash decided he’d had enough of that and bailed out of the ring. They once again re-engaged and Cash this time got the upper hand and got a couple near falls, before Shane rallied again and a backdrop sent Cash spilling to the floor.

Cash again stalled for time before re-entering the ring and was then beaten without mercy by Shane who hit just about every big move he could think of but only got 2 counts on Cash, who seemed out on his feet before a cheap shot low blow turned the tide back his way. The two men ended up spilling to the outside where the fight got even more brutal, if it was made of metal, both men found their way into being hit with or landing on it. The ref was giving plenty of leeway as PWC’s front office has made it clear that awarding byes in this tournament is the last thing they want.

Finally the two men ended up brawling on the staging area and Cash threw Shane off the stage and sent him crashing through a bunch of tables set up near it. Cash then ran to the ring and demanded the ref count out Shane. The ref had his hands tied and counted the man out, giving Cash the victory.

WINNER: Lane Cash at 14:20 (Threw opponent off stage -> Countout)

With Bracket three settled, Mr. Myers made his way to the ring, the crowd buzzing wondering if Manson would even show up in his beaten state. Then the lights flickered and the words “Is this the same Michael Manson?” echoed over the PA. The video screens then revealed to us Triple 6, talking about he’d idolized Manson and that sometimes he’d even pretend to be him. Then “Sweet Dreams” hit and Michael Manson, looking a bit leaner, hair cut shorter, stormed to the ring.

This match was anything but a technical masterpiece, these two men just hit each other, often and hard. What was a complete war of attrition was finally ended when Manson hit the Sweet Dreams and scored a hard fought victory.

WINNER: Michael Manson at 10:28 (Sweet Dreams -> Pin)

The other half of the bracket featured a hard fought battle between Alex Austin and Larry Tact, early on Austin was left unable to complete a submission as Tact kept skillfully positioning himself such that the ropes were always near-by. Austin grew frustrated and the match turned into a slugfest, which benefitted Tact who gained the upper hand and started landing some power moves, but a spinebuster proved to be counterproductive as Austin grabbed one of Tact’s legs and got a heel hook, trapping Tact in the middle of the ring with the hold.

Tact fought tooth and nail to make the ropes, but was clearly hobbled for the rest of the match. The two men continued to trade shots before Tact hit a German suplex with a bridge, the ref went down and made the count, it appeared Austin got the shoulder up right before the three count, but the ref counted three anyhow, baffling the crowd. Then the shocking announcement was made that Austin had won the match, Tact had in effect pinned himself as his bad knee gave out on the German, and his shoulders were down the whole time, allowing Austin to steal the victory.

WINNER: Alex Austin in 16:51 (Escaped bridge on German suplex -> Pin)

That left us with the final bracket of the night and Cameron Cruise and Jonathan Marx hit the ring and had a battle of who could top who with big moves and painful submissions. Marx finally got on a roll landing a series of moves and scoring near fall after near fall as Cruise hung on and kept fighting. Cruise then hit a Reality Check to turn the tide of battle and now both men were down.

Cruise rallied for his own flurry of offense and landed a powerslam, spinebuster, and DDT but none of these moves would keep Marx down either. Cruise finally managed to hit a second Reality Check but not even this could keep Marx down, only after a third Reality Check was Cruise able to advance.

WINNER: Cameron Cruise at 13:56 (Reality Check -> Pin)

That led us to the final battle of the night as young upstart Adrian Willard entered battle with the all-time great Hornet in a brutal battle to determine who would be the final man to advance. Willard’s game plan was simple in that he did all he could to keep Hornet trapped on the mat with a mix of arm and headlocks, trying to grind down the older opponent and hoping to sap his stamina. Hornet would rally and catch Willard with a flurry of offense every now and then, scoring near falls with some of his moves, but Willard would finally cut him off and back to the mat they would go again, Willard refusing to abandon his game plan, confident he’d finally break Hornet.

The match pushed past the twenty minute mark, making it the first of the tournament to do so, with Willard still grinding away on a chinlock. Hornet rallied to his feet again and once again connected with a flurry of offense, and this time hit a Hornet Splash in the corner and then caught a staggering Willard with an inside cradle that got the three count. Willard protested that his shoulder was up to no avail, as Hornet’s quick strike offense overcame Willard’s slow grind plan of attack.

WINNER: Hornet at 22:19 (Hornet Splash -> Pin)

And with that folks the field of 16 is now down to 8, we head to Chicago and the United Center for round two of the Prodigy Classic Tournament, who will leave the Windy City with a birth into the final four? That question will be answered in two weeks on The Circuit!
