THE GOOD VS THE BAD AND THE UGLY
Lord Johnathon Wimbledon vs ‘Bleeding’ Billy Williams
WHY WIMBLEDON WILL WIN: Johnny Wimbledon is everything good about EPW. He is without question the toughest human being to have ever stepped foot in a Perth wrestling ring. He continues to take unbelievable batterings at the hands of much bigger competitors and somehow manages to bounce back with a smile on his face time and time again. I think if this match was simply Wimbledon vs Williams, I would give Johnny the edge. Unfortunately, I highly doubt Billy will be without his henchmen. We’ve seen what Azazal and Marshall are capable of in the past, and nothing good can come from them being anywhere near ringside. If this match remains a one-on-one contest (which it won’t…), Johnny Wimbledon will win.
WHY BILLY WILL WIN: Billy Williams is a bad man that has two of the ugliest in the business standing in his corner. He has decimated everyone in his path, so it will be interesting to see how he fares in his first competitive match since returning with a chip on his shoulder and a mask on his head. The former tag team champion was always a goer in the ring but lacked a certain polish. I think his mean streak, combined with his two henchmen at ringside, will more than tip the scales in his favour. If Williams can stop Marshall & Azazal from getting him disqualified, he should walk away the victor without too much trouble.
ODDS: Williams $1.10 / Wimbledon $7.50
PREDICTION: 3 vs 1 isn’t great no matter how you look at it, but that’s exactly what Wimbledon is going to have to overcome. Even if it becomes 3 vs 2 with a Joe Ross return to stand by his tag team partner, I still wouldn’t be too concerned if I were Billy. Azazal and Marshall will look to get involved often, and poor Johnny simply won’t be able to mount any kind of offensive push. His only hope is that “Them” get a bit too carried away and he picks up a win by disqualification. It’s a testament to Johnny’s courage that he has accepted this match, all things considered. He’s no fool, he knows what’s coming, but he’s never backed away from a fight before in his life. My only hope is that he gets beaten, not broken, by this lot.
RESULT: Williams to win by pinfall in 4 minutes. Wimbledon to not be able to leave ringside unassisted at the conclusion of the match.
