The second half of 2013 is when the action really heated up. We had the continuation of
the blood feud between Kurai Himee versus her rival Savannah Riley, Josh “Scoot”
Robinson trying to make a name for himself in SPW. The name change of Christopher
Gray to Marcus Lewis, the emergence of T’Lo the Insano, Jeckles becoming a major
upper card player, Jeff Cobb and Flyin’ Ryan becoming the future stars of SPW and the
return of Sal Thomaseli.
July’s show featured the SPW Tag Team Titles being defending by champions Virgil
Flynn & D-Torch (aKa Salt & Pimpin’) taking on the challenge of Bobby Hart & Cjay
Kurz (aKa The Legacy of Brutality). The match went to a no contest due to interference
from the former champions Rik Luxury & Corvus (aKa The Beautiful People). The first
ever “EL Flaco Loco Invitational” was held with the winner earning a future SPW
Heavyweight title shot. Jeff Cobb held off Joe DeSoul, Marcus Lewis & JR Kratos for
the win. Sir Samurai defeated Jeckles to retain the SPW Heavyweight title in the main
event of the evening.
August’s card featured Marcus Lewis battling Joe DeSoul for the number one
contender’s spot to challenge for the S.P.W. Heavyweight title. DeSoul won the match in
a five minute overtime round. The Extreme title was defended by champion Drake
Younger who defeated his opponent Jeckles by pin fall to retain the belt. The SPW Tag
Team Titles were defended in a four team elimination match. Virgil Flynn fought by
himself due to D-Torch’s injury. Kurz & Hart managed to eliminate Flynn to win the
tag team titles. In the main event Sir Samurai defended his title against Jeff Cobb but
the match was interrupted by Sal Thomaseli who challenged Samurai to a title match.
September’s highlights featured a SPW Heavyweight number one contender’s match
between Jeff Cobb and Mustafa Saed. Cobb manages to out stiff the veteran and win
the match by disqualification earning a title shot. A seven person challenge was held
for bout with the Extreme Champion. Jeckles, Kurai Himee, Corvus, Savannah Riley,
Marcus Lewis, Virgil Flynn and Flyin’ Ryan were the participates and it was held under
“extreme rules”. Flynn wins the contest and will contend for the Extreme title on the
October card. Drake Younger defended the Extreme title against Joe DeSoul. The two
fought all over the arena and in the parking lot. But Younger used his veteran skills to
defeat DeSoul by pin fall to retain the belt. Sir Samural defended his title in the main
against Sal Thomaseli. Sal tricked Samurai and used some heel tricks to defeat the
champion and won the match by pin fall along with the belt.
October’s Halloween themed show kicked off with their annual wrestler costumed
battle royale. Flyin Ryan dressed as the Sandman won the contest along with a shot at
the SPW Heavyweight title in November. A number one contender’s match for the
Extreme title was held in a four way dance. Marcus Lewis won the contest by fending of
Joe DeSoul, Scoot Robinson and Dusty Grimes for the victory. The SPW Tag Team Titles
were defended. Champions Cjay Kurz & Bobby Hart defeated Drake Frost & Dexter St.
Jock to retain the belts. Drake Younger defended his Extreme title in a Best Two-out-of
three-falls match against Virgil Flynn. The first two falls ended in a double pin but
Younger won the third fall by pin fall to retain the title. In the main event, Sal Thomaseli
defended his SPW Heavyweight against Jeff Cobb. Due to interference on the
Champion’s behalf, Cobb won the match by disqualification.
November’s card opened up with a tribute to the late Roland Alexander of APW. The
wrestlers came out of the locker room to honor him with a ten bell salute. El Flaco
Loco returns to SPW and cuts a promo about his career and wanting to end the year
with one last match. Brian Tannen came out for his last match in SPW before heading
out to the WWE training facility. His final opponent was Cjay Kurz. The two had a stiff
and hard hitting match before Tannen surprised his opponent winning by pin fall. The
main event was changed to a three way dance for the SPW Heavyweight title. Champion
Sal Thomaseli fought off both Flyin’ Ryan and Jeff Cobb before winning the match by
pin fall retaining the belt.
December show was the last one of the year. The team of Corvus & Luxury broke up
after losing their match with Brown & Simon. A five way match was held with Josh
“Scoot” Robinson being the focal point as he was battered and bruised by the veterans
Mustafa Saed, T’Lo, Sir Samurai and JD Bishop. Bishop won the match via pin fall and
Scoot learned a painful lesson. El Flaco Loco came out to cut a promo about not being
on the card and still wanting a match before the year ended. Virgil Flynn fought Kurz
& Hart in a tag team match by himself but lost due to D-Torch;s interference.
Flyin’ Ryan won a “Five Pack Match” against Big Vito, Joe DeSoul, Dexter St. Jock
and Hayashi. The main event was originally an SPW vs Extreme title match
between Drake Younger and Sal Thomaseli but it turned into a
six man tag team bout due to interference from DeSoul and Saed. Sir Samurai and El
Flaco Loco intervened to even the odds. The contest was restarted and El Flaco Loco
finally got his match and a pin fall victory when he pinned his nemesis Sal Thomaseli.
