Live Report: Limitless Wrestling 2/22/2020

For those of you that don't know, two days after this card I had surgery that laid me up longer than anticipated and also left me with some anxiety and depression that I am still battling.  In fact when the renewal notice to register the domain for this blog came up a couple weeks ago I almost didn't renew it.

The blog doesn't get tons of traffic, I don't monetize it, this is just for fun.  I started this because I was working midnight shift and I could work on this while at work between calls and it helped me get through the night.  Now I'm on day shift and I find that I just don't have time.  But I love professional wrestling with all my heart, and I love sharing that with others.

So if you've read a post on here, shared it with someone, or left a comment, thank you.  Thankfully my good pal Brandon has posted a few things keeping the blog alive.

Limitless Wrestling returned to the Amvets Post 2 in Yarmouth, Maine for Practice What You Preach!

Once again the venue was sold out, something that I see Limitless Wrestling continuing to do after we get through this pandemic.  I attended with my cousin Paul, Mikey, Roy, Carolyn and we met many other friends and wrestling associates there.

You'll have to forgive me as this show was a month ago so my memory may be a bit off.

Christian Casanova vs. Myron Reed

Outstanding match to open the show, better than their first encounter a couple months back.  The fans were solidly behind Casanova as he continues to climb towards that one on one contest for the Limitless Wrestling championship.  Casanova got the pin with dirty diana.

MSP Invitational
Maine State Posse: Danger Kid & Aiden Aggro vs. Demorest & Oswald Project vs. "Smart" Mark Sterling & VSK vs. Kevin Blackwood

Blackwood couldn't find a partner so he went at it on his own, which would ultimately prove to be his downfall.  My first time seeing Demorest in person after watching him for years.  He's got some wicked cool backyard wrestling videos on the YouTube.  I'll tell you what, he didn't disappoint and I want Randy to bring him back every show. 

This is the best I've seen out of Oswald, truth be told I haven't been a fan of his like others.  However this reluctant tag team of Demorest and Oswald was great, and the double team moves these two did, which was just Demorest using Oswalds body to abuse both Oswald and their opponents were fantastic.

Everyone looked really good in this match but the finish came when Smart Mark stole the pin on Blackwood.

Trevor Murdoch vs. Atticus Cogar

I was so excited to see Murdoch in person, got him to sign a couple cards and got my picture made with him before the show.  He's such a throwback to a 1970's wrestler in the vein of Harley Race and Dick Murdoch.  Sadly I don't think the Limitless faithful appreciated the opportunity to see him in person.

I was also very happy to see Cogar in person, he has such a cool entrance with that face mask.  I wasn't sure how these two would mesh, but it went well.  One of my favorite parts of the match was when they were on the floor near us and Murdoch said "I told you if your gonna hit me then fuckin' hit me" before leveling Cogar.  I told you, old school.

Murdoch pinned Cogar with a flying bulldog.  I really want both guys to come back.  More importantly though I want to see Murdoch vs. JD Drake in person!

Daniel Garcia vs. Ashley Vox

Great match!  The crowd loves Ashley and hates Garcia.  Garcia really beat the crap out of Vox through out the match, hard slams on the floor, tying her in knots in the ring.

Ashley fought back through and sunk in her fish hook finisher, but Garcia rolled through some how and rolled her up for the pin.

Kris Statlander vs. Jody Threat

Two of my favorite ladies on the indies mixed it up for the second night in a row, but the first time in Limitless. This was a really fun match and I really enjoyed it.  Kris Stat picked up the win, pinning Threat.

Post match Statlander challenges the winner of the main even to a title match at the next show.
Independent Wrestling Champion: Warhorse vs. Rip Bison

I recall first seeing Rip as Tomahawk, who I enjoyed, but Rip Bison is somehow tremendously better.  This was a hard hitting competitive match but in the end Warhorse retained his championship extending his reign.  

JT Dunn & Alex Hammerstone vs. Josh Briggs & CJ Cruz

Hammerstone is huge!  Dunn is very hated by the fans, especially after what he did to Rich at the last show.  Briggs and Cruz worked together well at times, but it seemed like Briggs just wanted Cruz to stay in the corner and let him to all the work.

Cruz went for his Best Dropkick Ever but Dunn sidestepped him hitting him with death by elbow for the pin and the win for his team.

Post Match: Briggs walks out leaving Cruz on his own blaming him for the loss.  Brian Fury saved CJ Cruz from a continued beat down by Dunn & Hammerstone.  Fury challenges Dunn to a match at the next show.

Jake Something vs. "The Prize" Alec Price

I'm a huge fan of Price!  Once again he put on a very entertaining match with an opponent that is much larger than him.  

It looked for a moment that Price might get the win but Something hit the bossman slam for the three count.

Limitless Wrestling World Champion: Retro AG vs. "Dirty Daddy" Chris Dickinson

The Dirty Daddy jump started this match when he nailed AG with a missile dropkick during his entrance.  It looked like Dickinson was going to win the Championship but AG reversed a lateral press into one of his own for a quick three count. 

Post match Dickinson hits AG with the Pazuzu Bomb and Kris Stat cut a promo on AG about challenging him next month. 

Several matches were set up for the what was supposed to be the next show on March 21st, however a few days before it was cancelled.  The next Limitless show is scheduled for April 18th, and sadly I'm guessing that, that show will be cancelled as well.  Schools here in Maine are closed until April 27th.  I would say at the earliest the next show would be sometime in May.  Hopefully.

Signed Trading Cards: Kris Statlander, Ashley Vox, The North, and more

In this post but you can look at the cards that I got signed at Limitless Wrestling Flirtin' With Disaster on January 24th in Yarmouth, Maine.  Most of the cards are from Limitless Wrestling series 2 card set.  The cards were made by Todd Graham of Proving Ground Brand where you to can get your own custom trading cards made.  Following the link above of catch him on Facebook.

Kris Statlander

Kris Statlander was a surprise unannounced participant in the match.  I bought this pack of Limitless Series 2 cards after I say that she was there.  This card was in the front of the pack.  I was happy to get it signed, with her under contract with AEW I wasn't sure if she would be back with Limitless Wrestling.  I thought last month would be the last month, but she is advertised for February.  YEAH!

Ethan Page

I bought a pack of Limitless cards at the show because this card was on the front of the pack.  I got two of the cards this night as there was one in the pack with the Kris Stat card.  I gave that one to Page and he was very excited to have it.  

Josh Alexander

I bought this card from huskerhavs wrestling cards, it's part of the Jim Lyman Memorial Tournament card set.  These are great cards well designed, however, not a great picture as Josh Briggs is more visible than Josh Alexander is on it.

Alshley Vox

The last couple months Delmi Exo, Ashley's sister has been at the Limitless shows watching.  I bought this card from huskerhavs, it's part of the Sabotage Wrestling card set featuring the Sea Stars. The day before this show I read on Twitter that Delmi is on her way to Japan for a two month stint at the Stardom Dojo, great for her, but not for me as I now have to wait a few months to get her to sign this.

Brian Pilman Jr

The first card I bought from Pillman for $5, the other two I had.  The middle card is from the Starrcast II card set and the third is from 4 Corners Cards.  

Christian Casanova

This card is also from the Limitless Wrestling Series 2 card set.

Team Limitless...a work in progress

This card is from the Limitless Wrestling Series 2 card set, it features team Limitless from the December 2018 Limitless Wrestling vs. Blitzkrieg Pro show that was held in Connecticut.  I got it signed by Ashley Vox, Danger Kid, & Ava Everett. I need to get it signed by Anthony Greene, Aiden Agro, Alexander Lee, and Angel Sinclair.  It'll be pretty bad ass when it's all signed.
