Raven commissioner promo Part Two!
(6) Kingpin Angel beat Kid Kash and 2 Cold Scorpio in a three-way match to become the first Hardcore Roadtrip Hvt. champion. The first pin of the match came at 7:00 when 2 Cold pinned Kash after kicking the chair Kash was holding into his face. The match then continued with Angel and Scorpio battling for the championship. At about the 10-minute mark, Raven came out and DDT’d Scorpio for no apparent reason then went to the back. Scorpio kicked out at two from that attack, but could not fend off a face-first suplex from Angel, which earned Angel the first HRT Championship. Nice work by all three men after a long day of wrestling. (Match rating **1/2 Hardcore Rating *)
Vito came out afterward and gave a heartfelt speech about how happy he was that Angel won the title.
Next came a 45-minute break to put up barbed wire ropes.
(7) Warhed won the Deathproof Fight Group Championship in 15:00 in a six-man free-for-all. Warhed won the title over five others. If you enjoy hardcore wrestling, this was a great match, with many insane spots offered to the fans. I apologize for not getting the names of all the participants. I looked online and saw that you can find the Deathproof organization on Facebook. If hardcore is your thing, and you are around Toronto, check them out. (Match rating ** Hardcore Rating ****).
