June 6 NWA Anarchy Report

By Larry Goodman


NWA Anarchy returned to the NWA Television Arena in Cornelia Saturday night for another scintillating international television taping.


Attendance was 140 and it was a generally hotter group than two weeks ago. There is no direct attendance comparison with a year ago because Anarchy didn’t run due to the big NWA shindig at Philips Arena.


It was a taping that was very strong on storyline development. The climax of Iceberg’s babyface turn was the highlight in that regard, but across the board, the creative forces at Anarchy have got things cooking. The quality of the wrestling was more than adequate to carry the stories forward, although the wrestling end of things didn’t feel as critical in this case as it has at other points. A lot of the starpower was packed into the six-man main event, like they often did in the early days of Wildside. Once again, care was taken to give fans compelling reasons to return for the next show.


(1) Anthony Henry beat Dustin Knight in 5:36. Todd Sexton came out to sit in with The Best Damn Announce Team Period (Greg Hunter and John Johnson). Henry and Knight are both regulars with APW in Royston. They’ve both appeared in Anarchy before but it’s not like the crowd knew them (strike one). They came out wearing identically colored gear (strike two) and did a bunch of moves that nobody gave a rat’s ass about (strike three). Knight hit a spinning neckbreaker with Henry’s feet draped over the top rope for his big near fall. Henry pinned Knight with a fishermanbuster.


Sexton issued a challenge to Henry, continuing the story of the sadistic veteran who enjoys beating up young rookies. By the time, I was hoping Sexton would kick both of their asses.


(2) Todd Sexton pinned Anthony Henry in 3:54. Crowd didn’t care if Henry lived or died. Sexton punished Henry with moves like a forward rolling slam and a belly to belly suplex. Sexton countered a top rope huracanrana with a single leg crab, but Henry made the ropes. Henry kicked out after eating a superkick. Sexton blocked Henry’s finisher and finished him with the running knee strike to the noggin.


After the match, Sexton stood atop the announcer’s booth to deliver his catch phrase.


A video shot in the home of Shadow Jackson was shown on the WrestleVision. This was pretty great. Jackson said Jeremy Vain tried to cripple him. That was to be expected. “But you took it a one step further. You put your hands on my son. MY SON.” Jackson said Vain would pay for his sins of cowardice. “You don’t have the stones to take me on like a man.” Jackson asked to have Vain taken off suspension. “I need you back.” Jackson said Vain would feel his family’s pain. The video ended with close up shot of photos of Jackson’s infant son. Truly gut level stuff, which is pretty difficult to pull off in pro wrestling these days.
