Excellent opener. This was just awesome. Nese is the man. How TNA let him go, even if he wanted to, is beyond me. Fox has really improved this year and seems to be fulfilling the potential that his hype always claimed he had.
Papadon vs, Masada
This is Papadon's EVOLVE debut. He's great. Glad to see him branching out. Masada got a big reaction since this is CZW's venue.
They locked up and Papadon attempted to work over Masada's arm. Masada reversed but in the end Papadon maintained control. They exchanged reversals and faced off. They exchanged chops in the middle of the ring.
They battled into the corner, where Papadon came off with a leaping back elbow. Papadon followed up with a series of forearms and a kick to the back of the neck. He nailed a leaping clothesline on Masada, who was in a seated position, when drilled him with a running boot to the face. Masada fired back with a right hand and they traded punches.
Papadon nailed a back suplex for a two count and began ripping at Masada's face. Masada cut him off and locked in an armbar, working on Papadon's elbow and arm.
They continued battling back and forth with Papadon drilling Masada with a running boot to the face and cinching in a forearm smash. They began exchanging punches. There were a number of back and forth shots. Papadon escape a Death Valley Driver and nailed a big boot for a two count.
He went for a slingshot suplex but Masada pulled himself to the apron and avoided the move. Papadon missed a big boot and was hit with a pair of nasty looking suplexed for the pin.
Your winner, Masada!
Another real good match. This gave us a chance to see more wrestling out of Masada than you would see in CZW or Big Japan. Papadon is a hell of a workhorse in the ring.
Larry Dallas got in the ring and said that Papadon has all the talent in the world, but he needs proper guidance. Dallas offered him a contract to become the enforcer for the Scene. The crowd was all over Dallas, one of the most annoying personalities in the history of life. Papadon agreed.
Dallas said now he had an open contract for Marti Belle, the female wrestler he's been knocking. He said that just like all the fans on Twitter, she's nowhere to be found when it comes to putting up. Belle, who is a hell of a promo, came out and said she wasn't scared of him and signed it. She was then informed she signed a handicap match with herself vs. Dallas and Papadon.
Larry Dallas & Papadon vs. Marti Belle
Belle beat the piss out of Dalla. Papadon looked on, sort of with a "What am I going to do about this?" look, then finally grabbed her by the hair and killed her with a big powerbomb. Dallas covered her in a lewd way and scored the pin.
Your winners, Papadon and Larry Dallas!
