AAW Final Stand Results (1/26)
XANDER RILLEN vs. ONE CALLED MANDERS
Good match! A bit of a slow start, but these two really turned it on, delivering some hard hitting moves. One Called Manders defeated Rillen after a curtain call finish.
Winner: One Called Manders
TRAVIS TITAN vs. GYASI
Titan was probably the standout from the “Future” guys, as he has charisma and got the crowd fired up, even without entrance music. Travis had great energy and hit some impressive German Suplexes to the grooving Gyasi, but Titan was too much. Titan wins in very Daniel Bryan like fashion, with a running knee followed by a Labell Lock.
Winner: Travis Titan
JOE ACER & DEON RUSSMAN vs DANTE LEON & SAGE CAINAN
If you’ve been to the LaSalle shows of 2018, you’ve seen these guys before and they work well together. We had the power team in Acer and Russman vs. the fast paced high flying team in Leon and Cainan. The crowd was really into this one and Leon hit a Spinal Tap to pick up the victory.
Winner in 6:06 Sage Cainan & Dante Leon
TREY MIGUEL vs. REY HORUS
AAW likes to start their shows fast, and they did that here with Miguel and Horus. We had high flying action all over the place, that ended up with Trey being victorious.
ACE AUSTIN, CLAYTON GAINZ, CONNOR BRAXTON, & STEPHEN WOLF vs. ACE ROMERO, PACO, & THE BESTIES IN THE WORLD
WOW, what a match. A match that when seeing these guys, with two relatively unknowns in Ace Austin & Clayton Gainz, would have thought that these guys could nearly steal the show, but these guys did just that. The tone was set by the entrances of Ace Romero and The Besties in the world, in which ACH gave us his rendition of The Besties entrance from the balcony.This match had nonstop action throughout and the crowd was equally HOT throughout. Ace Romero power bombed Connor Braxton pretty much through the ring to pick up the victory.
Winners: Ace Romero, PACO, & The Besties In The World
JOSH BRIGGS vs. MANCE WARNER
Mance Warner is super over with the crowd. Briggs…we’re not so sure. He definitely didn’t have the pomp and circumstance that he did in previous months with Jimmy Jacobs trying to court him as his new monster, but he did put on a good match regardless.
Warner definitely knows how to play to the crowd, and loves to fight within them. It got to the point where Mancer even hit Briggs with a WWE Championship that a fan provided in the crowd. Mance ended up victorious in this one.
Winner: Mance Warner
JAKE SOMETHING & CURT STALLION vs. THE RASCALZ
Something & Stallion are accompanied by Eddie Kingston, and all are sporting new WRSTLING gear as they were initiated last month, much to the chagrin of new AAW Champion, Sami Callihan. Something showed a new mean streak here (as if he wasn’t mean enough already), and continued to show that he is crazy strong.
Eddie offered commentary throughout, telling Something to murder these men, and he wants to see a murder in 2019.
Stallion and Something pick up an enormous victory after a Luigi Headbutt from Stallion.
Winners: Jake Something & Curt Stallion
After the match, Eddie Kingston picks up the mic, the only way that Kingston can. He welcomed Stallion & Something into the new WRSTLING, but talked crap to the crowd while doing it. He’s interrupted by Trevor Lee, who got the BIGGEST POP of the night. Trevor got on the mic, and showed why he’s going to be a star.
He said he acknowledges that he’s continuously lied, cheated, and said horrible things to the crowd, but the people continued caring about Trevor Lee. He says that he knew they were selling WRSTLING T-Shirts, but they didn’t know they were giving them to all the marks (referring to Something/Stallion). He says that he’s the leader of this group, and the only reason that Eddie Kingston is in it is because he was David Starr’s bitch, and David Starr is HIS bitch. He says that if anyone is going to talk about WRSTLING, WRSTLING is right here in Trevor Lee.
He says that even though it’s his last match in AAW, but if they want to get rid of Trevor Lee, they’re going to have to kick him out of WRESTLING. So he challenges Eddie to a match to kick his ass all over Logan Square Auditorium.
EDDIE KINGSTON vs. TREVOR LEE
Really great match here with a lot of interference from Stallion & Something. The match is pretty close the whole way, but after some interference, some ref bumps, and Eddie Kingston grabbing the ropes to gain leverage on Trevor, Eddie Kingston picked up the victory.
Winner: Eddie Kingston
After the match, Trevor Lee said his goodbyes to the crowd, and had them play Shake It Off so he could dance his way to a beautiful exit
LUCHA BROTHERS vs. LAX
Man these two teams just work great together. This match was insanity and worth getting the DVD for. Lucha brothers with the win.
Winners: Lucha Bros
After the match, it looked like the two teams were going to embrace, but instead LAX decided to beat down the Lucha Bros and steal their masks like scumbags. They left Pentagon and Fenix lying.
MJF vs. FRED YEHI
Before the match, MJF came out to address the crowd, but he allegedly got a call from Cody. He went on to say he wasn’t busy because Chicago sucks, and then Cody asked him if he was wearing his sweatshirt from AEW. MJF flat out lied, but then told him he loves him to end the call. MJF is the worst and the best at the same time, and we hate it.
In other news, MJF beat Fred Yehi.
AAW HERITAGE CHAMPIONSHIP DJZ(c) vs. MYRON REED
Man this match is everything you’d want. High flying, chain wrestling, wrestling into the crowd. Myron Reed even hit a cutter over the guard rail, into the crowd, and onto a chair on DJZ, which busted his mouth open. DJZ hit a couple of ZDTs on Myron, including one from the top rope that ended the match, in which he said to Myron…”I’m sorry….I love you.”
Winner AND STILL AAW Heritage Champion: DJZ
KIMBER LEE vs. JESSICKA HAVOK
These two are renewing an old rivalry which took place last year, and there is bad blood here. Pretty good match between the two, which saw Havok winning with a tombstone pile driver.
Winner: Jessicka Havok
AR FOX vs. ACH
The farewell match for ACH, which saw AR Fox pick up the surprise victory. This was less about the match, but more about the man who in the last year had become the heart and soul of AAW, (Super) ACH. This guy was a guy who could play to every single fan in the crowd. ACH could do it all, from tell a story, hit power moves, high flying moves, talk nerdy to us, and be entertaining the whole way throughout.
After the match, ACH got on the mic to say his goodbyes, followed by Eddie Kingston, who said his. Eddie’s turned into an emotional tirade calling out the AAW Lockerroom and the respect that he had for them.
