WARNING: STRONG VIOLENCE AHEAD
It’s spooky season once again. You know what that means. It’s time to dive into another 31 deadly, bloody, horrifying deathmatches as we go into the 3rd annual deathmatch calendar. As always, this will be a day-by-day calendar of gore as we break into some of the greatest, nastiest, and most infamous of deathmatches across the years culminating with my pick of the year so far at the number 31 spot. With the preamble out of the way, let’s see what is awaiting us in this year’s tour of wrestling terror.
Today we bring a new company onto the calendar. Interspecies Wrestling. This Clusterfuck of a company has a habit of putting on some of the most absurd, most fun, and just downright interesting matches whilst also going under the radar. They’ve always been on the fringe of my vision and now, I finally give them some of the recognition they’re due on the gory countdown. Now, if you follow anything deathmatch related, you probably heard of ISW through their 1 Million Blocks Kickstarter. As their most familiar weapon of choice is the generic block toy, they tried and succeeded to crowdfund a return show where they would have the world’s dumbest match, a 1 million block deathmatch featuring some of its roster favourites. That is looming on the horizon so let’s have a look at what happened the last time multiple deathmatch stars rumbled amongst the blocks. One of ISW’s top championships is the King of Crazy title. In the build-up to this four-way nightmare of blocks, that title was held by the First Lady of LEGO™, Addy Starr. She was in for one hell of a time here though as she had to face off against Matt Tremont, Nick Gage and Jeff Cannonball in a Fans Bring The Blocks match. Things were going to get wild. Oh boy, had the fans delivered.
Starr made a statement instantly by spearing Cannonball through a block table and dived onto Gage after Tremont threw him outside. Tremont and Cannonball smashed each other with Block bats and punched it out whilst Gage and Starr brawled into the crowd. Headbutts rang out everywhere and the King of this shit and the Queen of Crazy took over the ring. Gage dominated early as he punched down Starr and slammed her onto the block door. He mashed blocks into Starr’s head and charged at her but Starr stunned him with a boot and threw him through another block door with an overhead belly-to-belly. On the outside, Cannonball was destroying Tremont with a chair and on the inside, Starr made it rain blocks. She tripped Cannonball into the blocks and drove him in again with a double stomp. Gage ran back in to send Starr into the blocks with a Swinging Neckbreaker and Tremont came in to send Gage into the blocks with a Samoan Drop. Cannonball took everyone out with an Apron Cannonball and started a one-on-one duel with Gage that saw Gage bite Cannonball and Cannonball pummel Gage with door parts. Starr knocked Tremont loopy with punches but got caught out of a charge and slammed into the block pile whilst Gage dropped Cannonball on his head outside. Bodies kept piling into the ring and kept crashing back down just as hard into the blocks. Starr avoided doom and beat Cannonball down with a chair so she could powerbomb him through a plastic tub. Gage saved the match and slapped Starr into a Chokebreaker. Starr kicked out so Gage prepared for the face wash only for Tremont to burst to life and clothesline him out of his boots. Tremont came at Starr but she dodged and gave him another back full of blocks with a Northern Lights suplex. Tremont countered the Sliding D into a DVD and rained down more blocks to end Starr with a monstrous splash. Matt Tremont was the new King of Crazy, defeated the former Queen in her own style of deathmatch. This was pure enjoyable anarchy with broken blocks and bodies everywhere. It was an excellent bit of main event deathmatch and the company is promising to one-up it in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Come back tomorrow for the next deathmatch delight.
