DWO "Trail of Perdition" Aftermath
Trail of Perdition
Destiny Wrestling's "All In" event set the stage for which events of high caliber are presented. One can never take anything away from these athletes, but Saturday night at the National Guard Armory things were taken to a whole new level. I said it once and I'll say it again; based on what was seen last Saturday night, on October 10th at DWO's "Day of Destiny VIII" may God have better luck keeping the gates of hell closed....may God have mercy on their souls.
Tag Team Warfare
THE Josh Carey & Tony Fletcher VS The Freedom Avengers
DWO Commissioner and Announcer Adam Merrick welcomes us to "Trail of Perdition". The hot Albuquerque crowd is ready for A+ action and we are under way with the night's opening bout.
Out first is the Yoda of Yoga, The Prince of Protein, Tony Fletcher. Next out is the Destiny Wrestling Extreme Champion THE Josh Carey, who takes a few seconds for some last minute warm ups. Out next from sunny California, Pinky and Fabian Fury, The Freedom Avengers, who give a double pose at the base of the new DWO Mega-tron. All four men ready, bell rings and this one is about to get back alley dumpster ugly. Right off the bat though Pinky doesn't seem to be too thrilled that Fabian will be starting this match, however Fabian and Tony Fletcher will kick this match off. Referee checking both men for illegal contraband, both men clear to go, lock up collar and elbow in the center of the ring by both combatants. Fabian gets the early advantage with a nice hold and take down, Tony trying to get out but Fabian a veteran of the ring is going to make Tony work for his escape. Tony rolls Fabian up, gets a two count for his efforts. Both men back to their feet, Tony has the arm around Fabians back and even pulls a little bit of hair in front of Senior Referee Kyle Neice. Tony breaks the hair pull and traps Fabian in a headlock. Fabian sends Tony to the ropes and slams into Fabian with a shoulder tackle followed by some pushups to showboat. Tony attempts to lift Fabian by the legs but is taken down with a tilt-a-whirl leg take down. Pinky not liking what he is seeing decides to tag into the match despite his partner showing disapproval. The powerhouse of the team is in and shows Tony what an uppercut looks like. Tony only spaghetti legged for a moment uses the ropes for support but gets one more upper cut for his troubles which sends him to the floor. THE Josh Carey enters illegally, attempts to attack Pinky from behind only to get a smile for his troubles. It's going to take a lot more than that to take the powerhouse down Mr. Carey. Pinky lets THE Josh Carey have a free shot, Josh takes the punch to Pinky right in the jaw, Pinky laughs it off. Pinky grants Mr. Carey a second try, Josh sends this right hand with a lot more force. Pinky now upset by the second punch sends THE Josh Carey to the ropes with authority including some chops to the chest as a sign of good faith. THE Josh Carey looks to have had enough and is attempting to head back to the showers early until Pinky brings him back into the ring the hard way. Pinky sends Josh into the ropes again and strikes with a vicious clothesline. Fabian asking for the tag and Pinky not wanting to tag in reluctantly does, Fabian goes for the cover but only gets a two. An irrate Pinky is visibly seen in the corner as Fabian hits a leg drop, one more cover and another two count. Fabian tries to pick up a prone Josh Carey but is taken down with a kick followed by a double team assault by Tony and Josh. Fabian has enough reach to tag in Pinky but the referee didn't see the tag and forces Pinky back to the apron. Meanwhile the assault of Fabian continues; Tony has Fabian in a side headlock which is followed up a back body drop. Fabian is sent to the corner and THE Josh Carey is tagged in. Josh proceeds to stomp on Fabians chest and then distracts the referee so Tony can illegally choke Fabian. Fabian is released and Tony tags into the match, Tony applies a front headlock but Fabian manages to get a version of a suplex in. Fabian desperate for a tag to his partner reaches out, tags Pinky and Pinky is in to clean house. Pinky hits a fallaway slam on Tony followed but a mean uppercut. Pinky sends Tony to the corner and hits a wicked clothesline, Pinky turns around and Fabian is asking for the tag, he's close but changes his mind. Pinky in a mood to inflict extra pain tonight sends Tony to the ground with a horrid suplex and a knee right to the back on Tony's neck. Fabian asking for the tag, he knows he can put the cherry on this match and call it a night but Pinky will not tag in. Pinky is signaling for the end, he has his thumb to his neck and sets his sights on Tony. Pinky grabs Tony by the neck, picks him up and jabs Tony right in the side of the head with his knee, lights out Mr. Fletcher. Pinky showboating, showing the crowd the carnage backs up a little too close to his corner and Fabian tags in, Pinky now fuming must get out of the ring. Fabian hits his finishing maneuver but a miscommunication allows THE Josh Carey to get in and hit his signature move on Fabian, he rolls Tony over the prone body of Fabian. Referee counts 1,2, Pinky jumps off the ring, he could have stopped the count, 3!
Winners - Tony Fletcher & Extreme Champion THE Josh Carey.
Hobo Hank Performs....until....
When MK announced that he was going to allow the performance of Hobo Hank at Saturday's "Trail of Perdition", everyone wondered if he had turned over a new leaf. Was he going to allow the hobo from the alley behind the Frontier to really attempt to get tips with his musical abilities? Had MK really shown compassion, sympathy and had his heart grown over time?
Hobo Hank made his way out to the arena, broken guitar case duct taped, beaten and bruised. As he played a few notes looking back at MK he warmed up. He set the stage for the Albuquerque crowd to take in some relaxing music. MK took a left the ringside area to the back, was that a tear in his eye? Hobo Hank continued to play however the crowd became hostile and wild when three men came in from restricted areas of the armory and attacked Hobo Hank. These men dressed in Middle Eastern head-wear, MK "Heel" shirts and camouflage pants. It was a damn set up from the very beginning. All three men kicked and beat down the defenseless Hobo Hank so much as to break his lucky guitar over his head and back. Remember that tear in MK's eye? It wasn't because he was moved by the words and music; it was a tear of joy. MK's heart black as the night sky, laughing and rejoicing in what he had orchestrated. Just then a familiar voice and sight showed up on the DWO Mega-tron. The Sheik gave a very stern warning, a word of caution that he was coming for Hobo Hank, Saturday October 10th. And with that the three masked men disappeared. Ringside crew carried Hobo Hank to the back of the arena to be transported to a local hospital. MK would not allow local EMT staff on site to take him in the gurney. MK made Hank suffer, he made him wait, he prolonged his pain.
After the show we caught up with MK, he cut us off at the door so we didn't see the identities of his hired guns. Before a question could be asked all he said was "say hello to MY Talibandits", MK slammed the door in our face.
Violent V VS Lucha Star
The Texas sized man beast vs the high flying star of the Lucha Libre. Now as a side nugget of trivia, Thunder isn't the only one with a streak, Violent V has one of his own. Violent V is 0 - 3 at Destiny Wrestling shows. Could he break the streak tonight and get a win in the Land of Enchantment? Bell rings and we are about to find out.
Violent starts out this match with a knee to the ribs followed by a double axe handle to Lucha Star's back. Lucha Star to the ropes and a flip, Violent V signals for an early win and attempts a seated senton but an early miss. Lucha Star finds his opening and goes for a dropkick sending Violent V to the outside and we are about to see what made Lucha Star a high flying sensation. Lucha Star picks momentum and hit Violent V with a suicide dive head first, both men back in the ring and Lucha Star goes for a plancha off of the second rope. Lucha goes for the pin cover, smart move, the longer the match goes the more it favors Violent V. Referee only gets to two before a kick out by Violent V. Lucha Star attempts to send Violent V to the corner and does so but not with some fight by Violent V. Lucha Star up to the top rope looking for a clothesline but Violent V has one of his own right to Lucha Stars rib cage, a lot of power behind that shot. Violent V thinks that he has this win in hand, goes for a cover but only a two count. Violent V now methodical and calculating in his attack will now target the back of the head and the neck area with three thunderous slams on the mat. Violent V now positions Lucha Star in the corner to hit his signature body slam off of the second rope. The Texas sized steam engine is picking up high speeds and Violent V connects with precision. Pin cover attempt but the veteran Lucha Star reaches for the rope to break the two count. An infuriated Violent V nails a hip toss off of the second rope and sends Lucha Star to the cold concrete floor with authority. Violent V sent him so hard that his body could clearly be heard smacking the concrete floor, the human body wasn't designed to come in heavy contact with concrete. Lucha Star is now positioned by Violent V in the corner outside leaning up against the cold metal post, Violent V is going for a clothesline but misses and hurts his forearm. Back into the ring both men go and Lucha Star is connecting with some right fists, Violent V is sent to the ropes but stops himself and causes Lucha Star to miss a drop kick. Violent V performs a devastating running swinging neck breaker the same neck area he targeted earlier. Violent V wants to wrap up this carnage and props up a prone Lucha Star on the top turnbuckle; he looks to want to hit a top rope super-plex. He is stopped in his tracks and sends Violent V tumbling to the ring but Violent V lands on his feet; Lucha already has that well scouted with a top rope missile drop kick. Both men exhausted, both men up to their feet, Lucha Star seems to be up with a second burst of energy. Lucha Star hits a leg lariat on Violent V, that stuns the big man. Lucha Star again off the ropes and hits a flying double forearm, again Violent V is stunned. Lucha Star one final time goes for the ropes to get more speed but the flying veteran is trapped, Violent V had the trap well set. Violent V has Lucha Star in his hands and drops him on the mat with his body landing on top of Lucha Star. Pinfall cover and again Lucha Star kicks out at two, where does he get this energy to push Violent V off of him from? Now can you see why Destiny Wrestling has the best performers on its roster? A lesser man would have been out minutes ago. Violent V is clearly one pissed off Texan and is going to the second rope, he plans on diving off and landing rib first onto Lucha Star. The referee is signaling against it, this could really hurt him and one man has already been sent to the hospital. Violent V jumps but by the grace of God misses, Violent V is stunned. Lucha Star reaches deep; to slay this beast he is going to have to hit something big. Lucha Star up and hits a reverse running DDT using the top rope as a spring board, a true sight to see. Referee counts to three and Violent V is now 0 - 4.
Winner - Lucha Star

Destiny Wrestling will showcase the greatest talent, Saturday night a new tag team made its debut, Francs and Beans. While the two masked wrestlers became a mystery upon making their debut they didn't fail to impress. In this match another tag team made its debut with the return of Tony Morales and his protege Cody Devine. Would Texas be avenged or would this night go to the masked superstars?
Senior referee Kyle Neice set to referee this match, poor guy, this match is going to get rowdy. Bell rings and this match had the green light. Francs, in the blue mask set to start this match off with Tony Morales' protege. Collar and elbow lock up center of the ring with Francs taking and early side headlock lead. Francs reached around and a quick school boy will slightly cover Cody but only manages a one count. Francs would not let up and is back on the assault.

Cody attempts to throw the powerhouse into the ropes but is caught with a reversal and a heavy duty shoulder tackle. Francs picks up speed by hitting the ropes and Cody tries to hip toss, Francs reverses with a hip toss of his own with high speed and great elevation. Mr. Devine goes to the well once to often and tries the previous hip toss tactic only to have it fail once again; realizing this isn't going his way the student wanted he tags in the teacher.

From our point of view it looked like a jabbing of the eyes but referee only saw Cody attempting to remove the mask. Morales' teaching is paying off for the young man. Cody antagonizes Beans and Beans enters the ring illegally. Mr. Neice trying to get Beans back onto the apron, no easy task for a man that size. Meanwhile, with Kyle Neice's attention diverted Morales and Cody "tag" in and double team Francs with heavy duty kicks and stomps in their corner.

Francs striking Cody with right hands pushed him off momentarily. Cody distracts the referee to show him his "injury" but it's nothing but a ploy to distract the referee from the tag Francs is about to give his partner. Beans came into the ring like a bull in a china cabinet but the referee did not see the tag. Cody knew exactly what he was doing and Beans is forced back to the apron. Unfortunately, Francs must get back into the ring and the attack will continue. Morales gets an evil grin on his face and drives a fist right into the ribs of Francs while being held by Cody Devine.

DWO World Tag Team Championship
Brute 66's Mosh Pit Milke & Ray Basura (Challengers) VS Death Rage Cartel's Johnny K & Josh Pain (Champions)
How do you control four men in general? Now how do you control four men who want that which all tag teams want? That which if you do not covet, you shouldn't be in the business of professional wrestling. How do you control one team will stop at nothing to keep 20 lbs. of gold? How do you stop the other team from taking the gold that they have been robbed of for so long?
Bell rings and Ray Basura gets the early lead. Ray attempts to go for what appeared to be a figure four leg lock but improvises with an elbow to the head. Ray follows with a pair of heavy duty shops to Josh's chest in one corner and the same thing in another corner. Josh realizing he needs to turn the tide takes down Ray with a devastating tackle. The man people have considered "Jaws in a fishbowl" has such incredible strength and to take a competitor the stature and power of Ray Basura is no easy feat. Josh locks in a version of a leg lock on Ray to control movement. Josh releases the hold for just a moment to drive his knees into the knee of Ray and then begins to reapply the hold on Ray. Veteran instincts have taken over in this match with the gold on the line. Ray reverses and attempts to put Josh in an arm submission hold but Josh rolls Ray into a pin cover. Josh cuts Ray from his partner and brings him over to his corner for a few shoulder tackles. In gets tagged the mind, the mental prowess of the Death Rage Cartel, Johnny K. Johnny and Josh both signal for the double chop and come down with great power on Ray's chest. Johnny rolls Ray forward and with Ray in a sitting position Johnny kicks Ray right in the spine. He attempts to go for a pin cover immediately after but the referee waves off the pin attempt due to Ray being too close to the ropes. Johnny goes for a suplex but it's reversed with a suplex to Johnny by Ray. Ray delivers a clubbing punch to Johnny's back before letting in crowd sensation Mosh Pit Mike. With both men briefly in the rung, they use their entire body weight to fall on Johnny's arm/shoulder area. Mr. Charisma Ray Basura takes his leave to the ring apron and Mike goes to town with some high octane punches to Johnny K and his abdominal area. Mike rolls Johnny to the ringside area and as he lay on the apron each member of Brute 66 grabs a leg and proceeds to drag him on the ring apron towards the Brute 66 corner. Josh Pain not happy about the recent events has to look on as his tag team partner is suplexed off of the top rope by Mosh Pit Mike and then gets a top rope leg drop by Ray Basura for his troubles. Mike goes for a pin attempt but gets cut off with a dropkick by Josh himself. Before leaving the ring, a fresh Josh Pain drags Johnny to their corner so the tag is easier. This move proves to not only be wise but pay off as Josh gets the tag. Josh connects with another dropkick, this one however on Ray's head and then goes for a pin attempt, two says the referee. Josh taunts Mike trying to get under his skin, it works. Mike steps into the ring but the referee tells him he cannot enter the ring. While the referee has his back turned Josh makes a blind tag to Johnny to bring in the fresher of the two. Johnny takes Ray and delivers a loud, thunderous slap. Johnny brings Ray to their corner and tags Josh for a double team. Josh kicks Ray while Johnny holds him; Johnny will not take his leave to the ring apron. Josh positions Ray's throat on the second rope, a popular trend of the night and hold the move until a four count from the referee. Josh now takes the time to showboat to the crowd. Ray struggles to his feet and realizes he needs to get in a good offense. Both men trade right handed punches, Josh sends Ray to the ropes and attempts a spinning clothesline but misses. Ray counters with a high speed boot to Josh's face. Ray down on the mat from exhaustion, Josh down from the destructive kick, both strived to get to their respective corners. Josh grabs Ray's ankle but Ray uses his power to send Josh head first into the turnbuckle. Ray gets the tag and Mosh Pit Mike is running on all cylinders. Johnny enters the ring illegally but that's not a problem for Mike as he takes down Johnny K with two deafening clotheslines. Josh rests on one corner, Johnny in the opposite corner. Mike goes for a back body splash on Josh and connects. Mike then tries the same on Johnny but does not connect and gets a face full of knee for his troubles. As Mike turns around to get away from Johnny, he finds a freight train coming at him. Instinct is the only thing answer as to how it happened but he moved out of the way. Josh couldn't stop in time and his kick hooks up with Johnny right in the side of head. Josh tried to come back from the slight miscommunication and heads for both men with a double clothesline in mind. Brute 66 stops Josh and impales him face first into the mat canvas. Referee counts and a shocked crowd has just seen a three count.
Winners and NEW DWO World Tag Team Champions - Brute 66's Ray Basura and Mosh Pit Mike, well that is until....
The MK Bandit makes his return to ringside and puts stop to the celebration. To directly quote MK, "The DWO World Tag Team Champions are NOT Josh Pain and Johnny K, the Champions are Dextor and Josh Pain, therefore because you did not pin the rightful owners of the tag team titles there is NO title switch. Give me back our belts or you're both FIRED!" Ray and Mosh Pit reluctantly give back both championship belts. Therefore, STILL your World Tag Team Champions The Death Rage Cartel.

Vitalli the fighting champion takes on all three men; the briefcase is in the ring. Dom cleans the first two men, in the rumble the referee is distracted. Dom picks up the briefcase, he has a bit of trouble with it though almost like it's a little too heavy. Vitalli signals for the home run similar to Babe Ruth and swing batter swing Dex is struck with the briefcase right on his head. Dex is out cold, referee regains order, Dom goes to the top rope and nails his trademark "Keeping the Faith Elbow". Referee counts the one, two and three.
Winner and STILL Destiny Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion - Dom Vitalli
Day of Destiny VIII
The final stop on the highway to hell, Day of Destiny VIII, live Saturday October 10th
Questions were answered but even more questions were raised:
What is going on with the Freedom Avengers? Are we seeing the cracks in the armor?
We now know that The Sheik, a legend in wrestling will face Hobo Hank. Will there be a stipulation added? What will MK's role be?
How will the Tag Team Championship scene be handled? Can anyone dethrone the Tag Team Champions?
Thunder is 8 and 0, but when the lights are on brightest and the stage is set who will step up to challenge Thunder?
Chad Thomas still has nightmare and is haunted by his loss to Marty The Moth but October 10th Martin Casaus RETURNS to face Chad Thomas. Two men who tore the house down last time they met will do so again.
It was announced that since Johnny was the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship but due to the shenanigans from the Death Rage Cartel there will now be one big obstacle for any outside interference to go though, Vitalli VS Johnny, inside of a Steel Cage! This will mark the third steel cage erected in DWO in the companies history. Who will survive, October 10th at the National Guard Armory?
