Who stood tall on the final road to Re-Awakening?
Gavin McGavin shoots on… everyone
After losing the Coastal Championship earlier this year to Generation Zero’s Scotty Ryan, McGavin has found himself increasingly frustrated after a string of losses. McGavin took matters into his own hands by defeating Jonathan Wimbledon, then later attacking top Coastal Championship contenders, Tyler Jacobs & Kiel Steria, causing their #1 Contenders match to be thrown out. Scotty Ryan re-emerged and challenged all 3 and now we have a Fatal 4-Way for the Coastal Championship locked in for Re-Awakening 16!
Winner Picked Dinner but the real winners are the fans
The universally loathed Cal Cousins was unsuccessful in his mano-y-mano ‘Loser Eats’ match with El Taco Nacho. But the real story of the match was that Del Cano has finally joined forces with his fellow luchadore, as he made the save post-match after Cal Cousins low blowed El Taco Nacho. Cousins never did eat that BIG… BEEFY… CHEESY burrito, but the EPW faithful have finally seen that their favourites mexiCAN get along!
Marcius Pitt has sold his soul to the devil
The alliance of Chris Vice & Damian Slater, known as The Untouchables, proclaimed that their trilogy would be completed at Vendetta. Shockingly, Marcius Pitt was the man revealed as the 3rd member after turning his back on tag team partner Alex Kingston with a pair of vicious F5s, allowing Jay Taylor & Taylor King to pick-up the victory. Pitt then proceeded to scorn anyone and everyone, including his old running mates TM61, claiming that they all have forgotten about him.
Later in the evening, Pitt & Slater would blindside a victorious Julian Ward, with Alex Kingston returning to make an unsuccessful attempt at a save, which brought out a returning Logan Grey! Kingston & Grey, known as The Street Gang Hooligans, have challenged Slater & Pitt to a tag team match at Re-Awakening 16!
The 2018 Invitational Tournament Finals are set
Julian Ward pulled off the ultimate upset by reversing Damian Slater’s O’Connor roll attempt into a bridging version of his own.
Chris Vice also claimed his place at Re-Awakening 16 by making David Nero submit to a brutal Stretch Muffler. Nero came out firing and had everyone on their feet in the opening stages, almost picking up the 2nd shock victory of the night with a 450 Splash.
Get the tables…
The main event of the evening saw a year of bad blood between 2 tribes come to the surface as Generation Zero battled The Solution in an Elimination Tables Match. After Warship accidentally speared EPW Champion Davis Storm through a table, Gen Zero’s ‘The Don’ Michael Morleone was able to score the important victory for his team. However The Don was left laying by The Solution’s Richter, before Davis Storm launched a verbal tirade at The Don. Storm & Morleone will have an opportunity to settle their differences as they meet in the main event of Re-Awakening 16 in a STREETFIGHT for the EPW Championship!
