Adams: Hello folks, and welcome to the PWA Insider:
Money in the Bank special! I am your host Bud Adams and I am with you for the
next hour to bring you up to date on all the latest gossip and exclusive must
see footage from the Pioneer Wrestling Association!... The following extended
highlights you are about to see were taped ahead of Rampage this past Friday.
Most of these were "Money in the bank" qualifying matches but there
was one match that failed to make air that also had an air of interest to it. It
was Kirlia Gardevoir vs. Bam. Both of these were major players in the old BWF
but have thus far struggled to make an impact in the PWA. With the higher ups
less than impressed by the efforts put forward by these two, they decided to add
a little stipulation to spice things up and light a fire under their respective
asses. That stipulation states that the loser will be fired, let's take you to
KIRLIA GARDEVOIR VS BAM
Gardevoir uses her speed to it's full advantage and does her best to keep Bam
off balance to some success. Bam tries to take the fight to the mat with his
"ground and pound" style but Gardevoir shows a sixth sense on more
than one occasion to avoid the take downs. Bam begins to show signs of
frustration and this leads to openings for Gardevoir to nail some high risk
offense. Bam is sent rocking and reeling as Kirlia bounces off the ropes
numerous times, hitting drop kicks and shoulder blocks, trying to take him down.
Eventually she topples Bam with the "Amazon Snap" after charging off
the ropes to hit it. She makes the cover... 1... 2... Kickout! The fans begin to
rally behind her as her momentum builds. She feeds off their energy and goes up
top to nail the "Aerotica" (Swanton) she again makes the cover... 1...
2... Kickout! Bam shows resilience, trying to keep on to his job but Kirlia is
determined to put her man away and keep hers. She lines Bam up for the spear but
Bam catches her, spins her around and attempts a German but Kirlia cuts that
idea short with a backward heel into the balls. Kirlia locks Bam in a cravate,
facing the corner. She then charges towards the turnbuckles, using her feet to
climb the pads. She flips over Bam's shoulders, the cravate turning into a
variation of an inverted front facelock, slamming the back of her opponent's
head into the mat. She makes the cover... 1... 2... 3!
WINNER: Kirlia Gardevoir
Adams: Gardevoir wins a surprisingly one sided match
and keeps hold of her job. Bam's contract on the other hand is likely to be
found in the recycle bin with all of the other shredded paper. Kirlia was to
have a slot in the Rumble match at Genesis where she would meet the losers of
the "Money in the Bank" matches. However, President Sommers announced
almost immediately that Kirlia would be bumped up to the Money in the Bank match
itself, along with the newest addition of Pohontu!
BOMBERBEN VS PSYCHO SANDRA - MitB QUALIFIER
Sandra dominates from the get go, bouncing BomberBen around the ring like a pin
ball. Ben tries to rally back but Sandra seems to know what he is going to do
before he even knows it. Chants of "F#!k him up Sanda, f#!k him up!"
echo around the arena as Ben's fate looks inevitable. Sandra whips BomberBen
towards the ropes but for the first time he manages to catch Sandra by surprise,
he jumps and springboards off the middle rope, turning mid air to nail a cross
body on Sandra. They both hit the mat with BomberBen in the cover position, he
grabs a whole hand full of her tights for good measure... 1... 2... 3!
BomberBen jolts out of the ring with his hands raised as Sandra brings her hands
to her head in disbelief that she just lost to a rookie.
Adams: BomberBen pulls off a MASSIVE upset over a
former PWA World champion to advance into the "Money in the Bank"
match at Genesis. BomberBen has been making steady progress since his arrival in
the PWA and could perhaps be on the road to a World title of his own should he
win the ladder match at Genesis. Psycho Sandra on the other hand has suffered
another heavy set back and rumours have been flying that she has been
contemplating her future. She will have a chance to set everything right
however, as she has a chance to get a shot at the Grizzly Beer title in the #1
contendership rumble at Genesis. Keep your eye on this situation as it develops.
CIRCA VS JACOB COLLINS - MitB QUALIFIER
They start off with text book stuff, exchanging headlocks and various other
holds. The crowd is torn about which one to cheer for as they both frequently
play the underdog role, they eventually seem to settle on Circa with her being
the smaller of the 2 competitors but Collins still keeps a vocal support. Circa
takes Collins down with a leg sweep but he kips back up and uses the momentum to
clothesline Circa down to the mat. Collins starts to take control and wails away
on Circa, keeping her grounded. Out of nowhere, Circa turns and nails a spear on
Collins and they both roll over exhausted on the mat as the ref begins the
mandatory 10 count... 1... 2... 3... They both start to stir... 4... 5... Circa
makes it to a knee... 6... 7... Collins tries to beat Circa to her feet but
Circa gets a surge of energy and pounces, taking Collins down multiple times
with clotheslines, dropkicks and slams to wild cheers from the crowd which swing
more in her favour as she hits her stride. Circa attempts another clothesline to
keep her momentum going but this time Collins anticipates it and ducks
underneath hit, hooking her around the waist as he does so. Collins wrenches
back and nails a vicious German suplex that knocks the wind out of Circa and
holds the bridge for the cover, but neglects to lift his shoulders off the mat.
The ref counts them both... 1... 2... Circa gets her shoulder up... 3!
Collins jumps up and raises his hands in victory but the smile on his face is
quickly erased when Eric Emerson announces Circa as the winner of the match. The
people at ringside can hear Collins groan as he watches the replay of what
happened on the jumbotron.
Adams: Circa continues to show why she was voted
"Superstar of the Month" for January with an impressive win that moves
her one step closer to a world title shot. Jacob Collins made a good go of it
but has once again met with defeat in spite of his decent effort, but has a spot
in the rumble at Genesis as a consolation prize where it is anybodies for the
GRIFTER VS KYLE MALONE - MitB QUALIFIER
The bell rings and both men slug it out in the centre. Malone over swings on one
of his punches and Grifter swats his arm aside and rides him down to the ground
in an arm bar. On the mat Malone is little match for Grifter's technical abilty
and focuses most of his effort on trying to get back to his feet rather than
trying to match Grifter move for move. He manages to force his way back up to a
vertical position and charges Grifter but Grifter side steps and super kicks
Malone in the back of the head (Mafia Kick). Malone collapses to the mat in a
heap and Grifter rolls him over for a cover... 1... 2... 3!
Adams: Grifter advances and Malone takes another of
the rumble places. Grifter has held a heap of tag titles in the past but has
never had his hands on world gold. Imagine a world champion who didn't talk?
What a media nightmare that would be for the PWA, but it could happen if Grifter
win the "Money in the Bank" match at Genesis!
BRIAN CADE VS JERICHO - MitB QUALIFIER
Jericho charges right at Cade from the get go only to eat the sole of Cade's
boot. Jericho tries to bounce right back up but Cade is straight on top of him,
lifting hard knee's into his face. Cade then hooks Jericho's arms high behind
his back and sends him crashing down to the mat head first with a double arm
DDT, his finisher. Cade rolls Jericho over and makes the cover... 1... 2... 3!
WINNER: Brian Cade
Adams: What an impressive debut for Brian Cade! The
former BWF world champion is now on his way to adding the PWA equivelent to his
There were 2 other "Money in the Bank" matches that took place on
Friday, but unfortunately both of these finished in no contests and it has been
ruled that all 4 competitors that took place in those 2 matches will now be
