I’m not going to lie here, I had absolutely no idea who “Aeroboy” was before watching this match, and I still don’t. Basically, for those in my case, Aeroboy is a small-time luchador from Mexico, that’s it. Anyway, onto the match:
Within the first three minutes of this Ultraviolent Rules Match, Danny Havoc was sent through a wooden-pane covered in barebedwire, and was soon sent into the guardrail, which Aeroboy had re-enforced with steel chairs. Ignoring the brutality, the Combat Zone fans were treated to some good wrestling maneuvers, including a perfectly executed dropkick at the hands of the Death Match Drunkard. Before too long, Aeroboy, too, was sent through a barbedwire-covered wooden-pane, cutting up his back badly in the process. I appreciated the near falls and quality wrestling that fell in between the hardcore spots and stiff shots from ringside weapons, I really got the feeling that Aeroboy was trying to impress the American fans and that Havoc was doing his honest best to sell Aeroboy to the fans, which ultimately paid off, if the hot crowd was any idication of such. It’s also interesting to note that we were even treated to classic submission holds at few intervals in this contest, something I’m sure that nobody could have expected to happen. The finish saw a bloody-mouthed Danny Havoc driving Aeroboy through a barbedwire-laced table, to much delight of the Combat Zone.
Weapon count: Two barbedwire boards, one barbedwire table, ropes wraped in barbedwire, a “STOP” sign painted black, steel chairs, many carpet-strips with nails, a “caution wet floor” sign, barbedwire baseball bat.
A great ultraviolent contest. It’s great to see CZW treating fans to the style that gave their promotion recognition in the first place; the last few shows have been rather good in quality, and its matches like these that keep me watching.
