Coastal Wrestling Federation invaded the La Marque National Guard Armory this past Saturday night for “Fusion,” their six-year anniversary show. The reigning NWA North American Champion was in action, as well as an appearance (of sorts) from a former WWE star.
The opening match saw T-Bone (with “The Heartthrob” Phillip Barnard) get the win over Jared Wane. After missing a move from the top rope, T-Bone floored Wayne with a Clothesline From Hell to get the pinfall.
The CWF Diamonds were in action next, as Barbi Hayden picked up a win over Jen-Alise. Barbi scored with a roll-up pin for the victory.
Sweet Man picked up a win over Total Domination member “Cactus” Jack Royal. Jack had things well in hand, until an attempted splash in the corner caught the referee instead of his opponent. While everybody was down in the ring, Jared Wayne sprinted to the ring with a chain and leveled Jack with it. He dragged Sweet Man on top of Jack and revived the referee. The three count was made, and Sweet Man was declared the winner.
After the break, the NWA North American Champion was in action as Carson (with Johnny Blade) faced Rudy Russo (with “The Heartthrob” Phillip Barnard) in a non-title match. Carson picked up the win after hitting a Codebreaker on Russo.
Up next, VIP and Neico battled to a draw. This was a solid match back and forth, with no clear winner declared between the two.
Former WWE star Jake “The Snake” Roberts made a brief appearance. After Outcast leader Johnny Blade said a few words about him, Roberts threw him in the ring and started their match a little earlier than scheduled. Roberts (still in street clothes) finished off Blade quickly with a DDT, then grabbed his bags and suddenly disappeared.
The CWF Tag Titles were on the line next, as The Death Dealers (Eddie Lee & Phoenix) defended the gold against the newly-formed 409’ers (Nate Laws & Onyx Cooper). Phoenix would get the win after picking up the pinfall.
The main event featured a special Champion vs. Champion match, as CWF Champion Lance Baretta put his title on the line against Texas All-Star Heavyweight Champion “Sexy” Steve DeMarco. This was an inter-promotional match that saw DeMarco pick up the DQ victory, after Outcast interfered on Baretta’s behalf.
The next scheduled CWF event is set for January 26 at the National Guard Armory in La Marque. Be sure to follow the Houston Pro Wrestling Examiner on Facebook as well as follow along on Twitter.
