The February 22 episode of "IZW Adrenaline" added yet another layer of intrigue to the impending "Coronation: A Decade of Impact" on March 15. The drama was raised by several top notch matches as every wrestler that competed in the Impact Arena brought their A-game.
The action was fast and furious from the get-go as The Bronze Bull (@BronzeBull_AN) locked horns with Roberto Camacho right out of the gates. Bull and Camacho traded headlocks with Bull being the more technical, but Camacho was all too happy to cut corners and hit a couple cheap shots followed by getting Bull in an arm in choke before Bull powered out. A spinebuster by Bull made Camacho scream like a teenage girl. Bull followed up with a Greetings From Mt. Olympus displaying his god-like strength. Camacho was down and as the ref counted the pinfall, IZW Tag Team Champion "Larger Than Life" Jermaine Johnson (@JermaineAboutME) rushed to the ring to attack Bull. The ref called for the bell as the match ended in disqualification, as Johnson pounded away on Bull. "Lights Out" Jordan Jacobs (@JacobsLightsOut) added to the melee by bringing a ladder into the ring and just as WWSB was about to destroy Bull with two ladders, "The Brass Bull" Bobby Starr (@thegods_bs) made the save and together he and Bull turned the tables and destroyed both Jacobs and Johnson with multiple ladder shots. When it was over, WWSB was writhing around in pain as the ladders where turned into twisted pieces of metal.
After the chaos between WWSB and TB and when all the debris was swept up out of the ring, Madam Co-Commissioner Erica (Lady_Of_Impact) and IZW Champion "The Natural Born Leader & Savior of Wrestling" Johnny Z (@NBL_JohnnyZ) squared off in the ring with "The Captain of the Force" Double D (@IZWDoubleD). Z and D got into a huge standoff and then "The Image of Fear" Kevin Morgan (@TheImageofFear) turned the odds in Z's favor by storming down to the ring and engaging in a 2 on 1 beat down of Double D. Soto Miyagi, with chair in hand, rushed to the ring to aide D and chased Impact Elite away. Erica made a match on the spot for Morgan versus Miyagi in a battle of David and Goliath proportions.
Morgan hammered away at Miyagi with crushing punches and looked for a gut wrench suplex but Miyagi escaped and connected with a series of leg kicks that chopped Morgan down a notch before dislodging Miyagi's teeth fillings with a clothesline. Miyagi and Morgan traded karate chops and open handed chops with Morgan getting the better of the exchanges. Morgan hit a back breaker seconds later but Miyagi followed with a flying knee that put Morgan on his backside. Morgan only seemed to get more intense, if that is possible, as he rose to his feet and tossed Miyagi across the entire ring like a sack of potatoes. Morgan tossed Miyagi across the ring for a second time as his penchant for inflicting pain was never higher. Miyagi had one final ounce of fight left in him and went for his finisher, the Sorana, but didn't hit the move 100% which enabled Morgan to rise to his feet and give Miyagi the Moment of Fear ending Miyagi's night. "The Brass Bull" Bobby Starr returned to the ring for his match against "Big, Bad & Sexy" Angel Camacho (A_Camacho0986). Starr started quickly by cornering Camacho and unleashing 10 punches with an additional head butt that put Camacho on Easy Street. Later, Camacho dropped Starr with a standing belly bump and followed up with a spinning side slam for a two count. Camacho had several near falls after that, which came from a variety of maneuvers including suplexes, leg drops and clotheslines, but Starr was able to get a shoulder up each and every time showing off an undeniable fighting spirit. Camacho missed with a big splash and Starr followed up with three straight head butts. Camacho has a hard head too and was able to shake the cobwebs out and connect with his modified crucifix power bomb putting Starr's shoulders to the mat for a three-count.
Up next, the third and final member of the first ever class of the IZW Hall of Impact was revealed as "The Widowmaker" Angel Williams was announced. Williams, a former IZW Champion joins, Tommy Revell and "Mr. Saturday Night" Michael Barry in the inaugural class that will be inducted on March 15 at "Coronation" in a special ceremony. An already hobbled and injured What Wrestling Should Be squared off against the KC Wolves [Luke Langley (@LukeLangleyMD) & Graham Bell (@GrahamBellWPE)] in tag team action. Jordan Jacobs got the short end of the stick as the KC Wolves tagged in and out keeping a fresh man on Jacobs in the beginning. Bell connected with kicks while Langley added a suplex into the mix. The Wolves added a drop toe hold-drop kick combo which only made Jacobs see more stars. Jacobs was able to tag in Johnson after connecting with a running double knees in the corner to Langley. Johnson suplexed Langley onto the rope then hit a baseball slide kick to Langley's head. WWSB tagged in and out and always kept a man on the attack as Langley was taking barrage after barrage from Jacobs and Johnson. Both teams showed an excellent ring awareness when they had an opponent hurt as the team work from both groups was top notch. Finally, Langley was able to free himself from the clutches of WWSB long enough to tag in a fresh Bell who was chomping at the bit. Bell dropped both members of WWSB with an assortment of kicks and knees. Jacobs fell out of the ring and Bell added a double knees to the chest of Johnson followed by a top rope stomp from Langley to pick up the 1-2-3. It was a huge win for the KC Wolves as it shows they are for real in the IZW Tag Team division by beating the current champs.
After the match, the KC Wolves were attacked by the Camacho cousins (Angel and Roberto) and a third man who turned out to be another Camacho! Vinny Camacho was revealed to be the newest member of the Camachos. These three Camachos made immediate enemies with the KC Wolves and after the beat down, Roberto issued an open challenge to anyone in the IZW locker room. You can expect to see a lot more from the Camachos. Stay tuned.
In the main event, Double D saw action against "The Old School Sucka" Randy Price (@RandyPrice_OSS). Double D started off with some nice chain wrestling and got Price belly down on the mat where D was in total control with a side headlock. Price returned fire when he got to his feet as he took apart D hold by hold and locked on an arm ringer. D and Price went back and forth with D looking to keep Price on the mat usually with arm drags, while Price wanted to fight back to his feet so he could use his Old School ways. D responded with a spinning heel kick and two drop kicks as each man upped his game as the match went on. D added several chops including a Force chop, but Price was determined out of pure spite to not let his shoulders stay on the mat. Later, Price had D in agony after several well placed knees and a low blow. D regrouped and hit a springboard knee and springboard tornado DDT in successive moves. D readied for the high crossbody when Johnny Z's music hit, distracting D on the top rope. Price capitalized on the situation by crotching D on the turnbuckle and giving D a piledriver in the center of the ring for the pin! It was a devastating win by Price who has never looked better since turning over this new leaf. Fans might not like it, but Price is at the top of his game. After the match, Z came down to the ring to pick at the scraps and hit Double D flush with a Big Boot in the corner. D took two finishers back to back and as of press time, it is still unknown how his health is.
