Riders In The Country
Lost Cause" Nick Richards and Chris "Sho Smoove" Lea kicked off 2013's RCW Riders appearance, giving the fans more than they could have expected in a match. Lea continuously came back from Richard's attacks, building momentum toward a convincing win. However, Richards didn't see things that way, pinning the shoulders of Lea for the three count and a roar of disapproval from the fans.
Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride and Brian Hall hit the ring to announce the members of Team Fair Warning when they were interrupted by Team DamFino. Introductions were completed and the ten offered to fight right then instead of waiting for the main event, but calmer head prevailed and both teams exited after a cheap shot by Tank Lawson with a cane.
Mecha Mercenary with manager Monopoly Man hit the ring to take on Ooga Booga with J.R. Jackson in singles action. A melee erupted and progressed to a street fight with the managers squaring off at ringside as their charges locked up in the ring. The two went to a most unconventional form of war, eventually brawling into Rider's pool room and around the bar. Referee Redd Jones, nearly exhausted from chasing the two raging bulls around the club, returned to the ring, made the ten count and called for the bell as both men were still brawling in the video game room.
Labron Kozone and manager Nick D were out next to take on fan favorite Sgt. Kevin Stryker in singles action. In a nearly even battle, the man on the outside of the ring was the catalyst of change that powered his man on to victory, imploring for Kozone to get mean and to take the fight to him. Kozone responded with a little streak of mercilessness, pinning Stryker for a convincing victory.
The Goon Squad's Walter Eaton was out next to take on the Killbillies' "South Paw" Aric Andrews in singles action. After a barrage of "We Want Evan! We Want Roy!" chants, things got serious inside of the squared circle. The fight went pretty much dead even until Eaton realized the crowd was chanting "Munkey!" to him. His anger fueling him, Eaton began pounding on Andrews who refused to allow himself to be pinned. Turning the tide on Eaton, Andrews left with his hand raised after winning by pinfall.
Team DamFino's Billy Creeson, "Iceman" Joe Storm, Manny Garcia, Jimmy Jannetty & Paco Loco w/Tank Lawson entered and awaited Team Fair Warning's Rob "Boogie Woogie Man" McBride, Brian Hall, Raven Havoc, Matt Houston & Mr. Kingfish. The fan favorites entered and announced that they'd brought a manager and introduced "Dangerous E" Corey Edsel, who hit the ringside area with a written strategy to defeat Team DamFino. Ten men fought, expanded to twelve men with battles erupting all around the ring as action continued inside of the ring. When the smoke cleared and the referee called for the bell, Team Fair Warning's Brian Hall got his hand raised by the official. Then another fight broke out, former friends almost reunited and in the end DamFino's Billy Creeson took the house mic and told the fans that the hatchet was buried between he and Fair Warning's Brian Hall and they were going to go back to making music instead of fighting inside the wrestling ring.
RCW will return to live action in early 2014 at Randleman NC's Riders In The Country with a few surprises from Lizard Lick Towing if the stars are indeed aligned! Stay tuned fans!
