Wrestling Open 47 “Autumn Classic”

11/24/22 Worcester, MA

Streaming on

It’s Thanksgiving night. Turkey has been consumed, both with family and with the wrestling family outside in the line at the White Eagle. Autumn Classic has had a monster build for the last several weeks so it’s time to see if this is going to pay off in practice. 46 weeks of good shows mean all signs point to yes but our biggest story is absolutely hot to death:

The Big Bet. The Giant Gamble. Is this the last hurrah for Alec Price in Worcester or will this become Sad Sidney’s Sudden Sendoff? As a fan and writer, I actually hate BOTH options here so I’m kind of praying for an out…but I know all the verbiage around this to set it up has really closed a lot of loopholes. So we’ll see.

But first, it’s a Spotlight Match! It’s a 4-way?!?

Spotlight Match: Thomas Leduc vs Cecil Nix vs PacMan Lex vs Hot Stepper Macrae Martin

Hot Stepper wants a Dance off but Lex just bowls him over. He just yeets Cecil and Leduc around. Martin pulls the rope and Lex is sent over. Posted! It’s a competitive fight again! Hot Stepper off the ropes but Cecil catches him in a bomb. Superkick from Leduc and uh oh, Lex is back! Cecil is technically great but Lex hits a huge pounce. Spinning head kick to Lex. Macrae with a Rubix Cube variation for the win! Great energy for this one!

Winner: Macrae Martin

And we’re LIIIIIIVE on IWTV! Paul Crockett and Denver Colorado are at the microphone desk. “Sexy” Rich Palladino is your announcer. Worcester is loaded on Turkey and ready to f***ing rumble. We have new entryway lights! Let’s goooooooooooo!

Match 1: Big Bacon Brad Hollister vs Ichiban (2 out of 3 Falls)

1st Fall: Brad is wearing literal war paint and pacing as Ichiban makes his entrance. Brawling right at the bell! This is some Steen/Generico energy. Ichiban sends him flying and dives right after.

3rd Fall: Ichiban comes to but he only has 30 seconds to recover. Bacon charging in, hip attacks in the corner. He stops and just laughs at how prone Ichiban is. It’s a bad move as Ichiban fires out of the corner! Destroyer! Flatliner! Bacon is lights out and down for the three!

Match 7: Steven Stetson vs Tyree Taylor (Bullrope Match) 

We’re doing “drag ‘em to all four corners” rules tonight. Stetson tries to take a powder before they even get the rope on and this is just a brawl around the ringside area. The crowd gives us a spelling less as Tyree gets the match going. Ring the bell and Stetson eats a bell shot and he is GUSHING. It’s so early for all this blood! Stetson blasts a shot with the bell and almost hits the four corners in succession. Stetson trips up Tyree with the rope and unloads on the big man. “You wanted this” screams Stetson. Stetson tries the walk again but Tyree hits a Samoan drop! Huge corner spear! Shoulder blocks! Stetson is a MESS. Stetson rolls out and Tyree tries to make the walk. Stetson pulls Tyree into the ropes. Huge bell shot. Stetson ties up Tyree and walks him around…Tyree is hitting the buckles too! Stetson making the walk to the fourth corner…Tyree hits a Brooklyn Zoo bomb and hits the fourth corner for the win! Man, this match could have been dead in the water after Alec’s loss took the wind out of Worcester’s sails but damn, a pile of unexpected crimson brought the room right back. Awesome but gross fight. That rope is a mess. Lol.

Winner: Tyree Taylor
