Ultraviolent Aerial Assault: 4-Loco vs. the Nation of Intoxication
The only way to win is to get the CZW Tag Team belts hanging above the ring. Everyone just brawled out of the locker room and its immediate total chaos. Azrieal hit a big tope con hilo to the floor. Crissy Rivera swung off the top rope using a rope like Tarzan into a rana.
Alex Colon drilled Danny Havoc with a ladder and attempted to whip him into it. Havoc nailed him and used it like an airplane spin weapon but was lowblowed by Rivera. Colon used a back suplex while the ladder was around his neck. Holy hell, that was nuts.
Alex Colon and Bandido worked over Devon Moore, beating him with a ladder. They brought a table into the ring. Bandido sent Moore into a ladder in the corner with a suplex. Nuts. The table was placed in a corner. As all this madness was going on, everyone else was brawling outside the ring.
4 Loco worked over Moore, who held onto the ropes when they whipped him across the ring. He backdropped Colon and Bandido to the floor. Everyone battled to the floor as Havoc stood atop the box the belts were in and hit a moonsault to the floor on everyone.
The crowd began applauding in unison.
Thurnteen and Colon battled back and forth in the ring. Thurnteen used the rope hanging from the ceiling to pull himself to the top and came off with a big swinging DDT. He then went to the top of a scaffold and was going to leap off, but Colon charged up a table that was leaning against the ropes. Colon was kicked off and bumped into the ring. Thurnteen then hit an insane 450 splash off the top of the scaffold to a table Bandido was on below. The place went nuts.
Devon Moore went to the top of the scaffold. Rivera followed him and nailed him with a low blow but he no sold it and pulled out a protective cup. He grabbed her and nailed a Michinoku Driver off the top of the scaffold through a table. Holy hell, that was insane. The place erupted.
Someone nailed a cutter off the apron through another table but I missed who. Azrieal came off the top of the box with a senton. Havoc was bleeding from the back of the head at this point. The finish was Havoc pulling someone from the top of a huge ladder and nailing a DVDR through a table that was leaning against the ropes.
Lucky Thurnteen then pulled the belts down.
The winners and new CZW Tag Team champions, The Nation of Intoxication.
Absolutely one of the most insane matches I've seen this year with a dozen insane bumps that would make the highlight reel. Great, chaotic brawl that the crowd loved. And that was JUST the opener!
As they cleaned the ring, Pepper Parks and Cherry Bomb walked around ringside cutting a promo. He put her over as his new fiancĂ© and the fans called her a "crack whore." Bomb said that they feel they may have gotten off on the wrong foot with the fans because they understand how confused the fans are. They said they are here because they care about them. They began pointing out fans and telling them how they could better themselves. It was great. One woman actually threw something at Cherry. They found a planted heavyset fan that they had take off his shirt so they could "see how they can best help him." Parks then told the fans to take his advice, which is that the body is a temple and if you work hard to get a body like his, one day you can treat someone else's like a playground. It was a hell of a promo.

Swann slipped out and nailed a sitdown bomb, dropping Strickland across the edge of the chair. He then hit a standing 450 splash and scored the pin.
Your winner, Rich Swann!
Someone is going to watch this and say they did way too much and the psychology didn't make sense, but for this audience, it was exactly what they wanted to see - two guy beating themselves and the other guy half to death with insane moves and hard hitting shots in order to win. My hat is off to them for an insanely great effort. Swann blows me away every time.
