Memorial Day Edition
Well, its been a while since I last wrote. The last time I was doing this, I said I was going to Utah to wrestle for the tag titles against the los Mochis. Well, that match went well; and besides getting my head kicked into the seventh row, and taking the most interesting version of the spanish fly, my partner and I overcame all odds and captured the AWA/UCW-Zero tag team titles (oh yeah. I forgot to mention also that my partner managed to get himself knocked out halfway through the match and didn't know where he was til the next day!!). TEAM CLIMAXXX rules!!! Yeah, but anyways, that was a fun match. As I have said before, those Utah boys can work. I came back and wrestled with my partner here in AZ, XXX Lawrence Tyler, who is an exeptional worker, against Mike James and Jack Durango. Now, we came into this match at an advantage and they came in at a disadvantage; namely, we were us, and they were Mike James (his 2 or 3rd match), and Jack Durango, the cowboy from hell that LT and I have both had the chance to wrestle on several occasions. He is great, and we love him because he is the biggest punching bag ever! It is not uncommon to say, hey Jack, wanna take something that might hurt to the floor from the ring, or some such nonsense. And he'll say, Man you are nuts. Okay, but make it look good even if you have to kill me! Nuff said on that point. It was a fun, if somewhat hardhitting, match. Then I was back off too Utah again for two days worth of wrestling. It was a Cinco de Mayo festival, and me being a heel there, had to turn the heat on. It worked. I am still pulling skittles and bottle caps out of places I had no idea kids and grandmas could aim at. My first night was against UCW Zero Champion Derrick Jannetty. This match I have to say was one of the best I have had all year. We wrestled for about 25 minutes before he managed to pin me with the sliced bread (yup, Spanky, he stole the move from you!). My next night was against Los Mochi Paco. Now I complained to the promoter, I beat him and his partner in the last show, won their belts, and now had to wrestle him in front of 2000 screaming Mexicans? Ok, I wasn't really complaining, just picking on Paco, but when we were done wrestling, I didn't see anyone throwing bottles of Sangria at him!!! Back to AZ for the match on Tuesday. This match was one that I was waiting for forever. XXX and myself against the California Connection Peter Goodman and Antonio Mestre for the IZW Tag titles. I have to say, this match was FUN!!! We 4 had the crowd at the SETS on their feet the whole time, and after we won the belts, and then had them stripped from us by the ref (who later that night turned on Train as well and joined the Cali Connection, go to www.impactzonewrestling.com for the whole story) I thought the crowd was going to rumble. They were so ******* It was a great show. Of course that was good, but nothing beat getting fired from the stripper club the next day because of being gone on the road to much. That sucked. Oh well, but I had a match in two weeks against Lil Nate for the Western States Heritage title! That is whats important dammit!!! This was the first time Nate and I have faced each other since I lost the title to him in Feb.. I have to say I love wrestling Nate. The guy knows the business inside and out, and is not afraid to take certain risks if the match and crowd call for it. Well, the crowd wanted us to top what we did last time, and we didn't disappoint! After russian leg sweeps to the concrete, hurancanranas to the outside floor, and me busting the back of my head open hitting the ringpost on a missed spear (the only thing I thought of when it happened was ****, I hope I didnt knock myself out like Goldberg did in Germany!) we went home with Nate catching me with a rollup reversal and the Sheik (Nate's Manager) holding my legs. It was a great match, and I wish I hadn't cracked myself, cause it would have been a lot better if i could see and stand straight for the last 5 or 10 minutes of it! Oh well, thats enough rambling, I'll see you all on the flipside!!! Peace on Ya homies!!! Gallo
So how's it going? Took longer than expected to get back online; the trials and tribulations of working part-time as a bouncer at a strip club. I wanted to take this time to comment on a few things.
1- if anyone was wondering about the new pic on my homepage, and the farewell to the heat squad caption; the answer is this. When we first started running IZW shows here in Phoenix, there was a group of guys that did their best to have the best matches possible and to raise as much hell backstage as one possibly could. Now, this wasn't just confined to the IZW arenas; oh no, we took it all the way to SoCal and UPW. We weren't trying to cause trouble really; it's just that nobody had a sense of humor when we were around. Come on, there's nothing wrong with filling a showerhead with ink or putting hot sauce in just the right spot to make it squirt when you sit down (on the toilet. HA! HA!). Or when someone (Frankie) keeps hiding the UPW tag straps and hockey sticks from their owners at belltime. So this is my farewell to 3 of the 4 members of the Heat Squad who finally made it to where they have always wanted and should always have been, the WWE. Mike Nox, Frankie Kazarian, and Derrick Neikirk. Congrats. It's been a long hard road to travel, and I am thankful that we traveled it together for a time. Good luck in the WWE and don't let anyone forget you!
2- Congrats to Big Jack Bull for getting signed to WWE as well!
Off to UCW-Zero this weekend for Team Climazzz (Myself and partner Tristen Gallo) to take on the UCW-Zero Tag champs the Los Mochis. I am looking forward to this matchup and can't wait to raise hell in Utah again. Then I'm back home on Sunday to work at Christies and then off to the Sets once again for another IZW show.This show will be interesting for the return of Killer Chris Kole, who is out working the farm towns right now with the IZW Road Rage 2005 tour. He will be returning for one night only before heading back to the Midwest were he's an active competetor. All in all it will be a very busy week. Talk to you all later, Peace out!
Lets see. My first commentary for my website. I don't know where to start. Lets begin with Utah. Started wrestling for Stevie Slick's AWA/UCW-Zero promotion recently. They are based in Slat Lake City and are pretty much the only stable wrestling promotion in that area. I went up there in Feb. to wrestle in a chain match against a kid named Matt Kane. Claimed he was a worker from California. I'd never heard of him, but was like; what the hell. Come to find out he had never been trained before; kid didn't even know how to lock up. So that match was pretty much a cluster. Besides my match; the rest of the card was great. UCW is a good group of young and hungry guys. The talent level in the promotion is amazing, these kids can work.
Since then I did part of the AZ leg of a three week Gatorwolf tour. It was great being on the road again and I drove all night after getting off work at the strip club i bounce at to be part of it. The first night I wrestled Gator dressed up in a big mucha lucha suit and calling himself Mutton Warrior. I was working as Prince Nasseem that night; and the great Arabian Night that I am was quickly defeated so that the savior of the Navajo People could put his cape on and zoom away to sell gimmicks to the crowd.
Then I had to drive all the way home to Phoenix to be at work on Wednesday. I get to work and am told that I could leave at 10. So being all ****** off that they wouldn't let me have the night off before; and I had driven all the way back down here and wasted my money on gas, turned right back around and drove back up to Chinle.After avoiding about 20 elk in the road, I managed to get to the hotel everyone was at by 3:30 in the morning.
That night I worked Dusty Wolf as Doink and then Gator, Dusty, and Navajo in the main. Once again the good guys went over, crowd was happy enough even to by my gimmicks; even though I had been insulting them only 5 minutes before. Then I was off to Casa Grande to wrestle my buddy Steve Corino. Now somebody had decided to go and make this a first blood match; and Steve and I were trying to figure out how to make this one good. Well, we had the match and it turned out very good; we went about 25 minutes before Steve went over by running my head into a steel chair set on the top turnbuckle. All in all it was a good end to a nice run, and working guys like Corino and Dusty really made the trip worth it. After that match we all went back to phoenix, where Corino and I proceeded to order half the Denny's menu (Steve, I think she knows!!!). I have to get ready for work now; so I will finish this commentary later on tomorrow, or whenever I get back online! Peace out people! Gallo
