Sunday was my first Destiny event it was historic because at Night of Glory it was the night to crown Destiny first World Champion. Therefore I was extremely excited because it was taking place on my birthday weekend and I got a chance to meet a WWE HOF Booker T. Now this was not my first time meeting him I got to meet him at WWF Axxess at 2002 at the time, but it’s always nice to meet him once again after all these years. As I always do I will provide my three count of the most significant highlights of the card as well as the other results.
1) First Destiny World Champion
The whole purpose of the night was to crown the first Destiny Wrestling World Champion. It was a tournament format where it was six matches in the opening round and the winners would advance to the finals in the main event. The opening contest was between Phil Atlas and Will White it was supposed to involve Jon Bolen I don’t know what happened to him. However Atlas was his replacement it was a great match White advanced in the tournament via a Swanton Bomb.
The next match was Randy Reign against Tyler Triva and I was very intrigued because I heard great things about both wrestlers. This was the first time I saw them live and I was impressed because both are going to be mega stars in my opinion if they get the right opportunities. It was a very physical encounter between both man and Reign was the last one laughing with a TKO to get the three count.
The next contest was an all out war between two of the very best in Ontario Josh Alexander against Tyson Dux and I was blessed to see one of Josh Alexander last matches in Ontario. Alexander held no punches and took Dux to the limit and it was an instant classic, but I was surprised that Dux had to cheat to win via a handful of tights.
Now RJ City took on a newcomer in Danhausen and even before the match started RJ City took shots at everybody in the crowd and that was hilarious. Anybody that knows City he is pure entertainment and a great heel that always gets the most out of the crowd. Now it was crazy because Danhausen had similar tattoos to CM Punk. I thought for his debut at Destiny Wrestling he had a solid match in my opinion but Cody Deaner assisted RJ City to victory.
Ethan Page was scheduled to face Brian Cage but he wasn’t able to make it therefore instead his replacement was PJ Black. To be quite honest it was an insane match the crowd was 50/50 for both men I was impressed with Black as it was my first time watching him since he left the WWE. PJ Black advanced in the tournament via a Moonsault off the ropes for the three count.
The last match in the tournament before the finals six man elimination match it was Joe Coleman taking on Cody Deaner. To be quite honest I didn’t know much about Coleman before because I never have seen him but I was very impressed with his in ring work. I could care less about this match because I have never been a fan of Deaner’s work to be honest. Coleman would advance in the tournament to the finals.
Now that the finals were set it was a six man elimination match that took place between Randy Reign, RJ City, Will White, Tyson Kidd, PJ Black and finally Joe Coleman. All hell broke loose and there was there was a double Suplex spot on Reign than all four man got on top of Reign to eliminate him. Then the last three-man involved in the match were PJ Black, Tyson Dux and RJ City. City eliminated Tyson with a School Boy roll up pin.
The final two men that were left standing was PJ Black and RJ City, therefore due to their alliance Cody Deaner was obvious going to get involved to assist RJ City to Destiny World Championship. Booker T had different plans he got involved because the referee was knocked out at the time. Therefore he threw Deaner out of the ring to call the match right down the middle. The finishing sequence had PJ Black hit a Superkick followed by a 450 Splash on RJ City, to get the three count and became the FIRST and NEW Destiny World Champion.
2) Overall feel
This was my first event and I must say that the overall presence of Destiny as a company is first class with their product and production. In addition with Santino Marella owning and running the Battle Arts Academy I was blown away with the state of the art facility. I was marking hard when I saw all of Santino Championship belts on a beautiful glass display in addition to all the posters and nice WWE pictures in nice frames.
Never take anything for granted in life anything can be gone in a matter of moments. For instance PJ Black gave Joe Coleman a Hurricanrana off the top rope, but accidentally Will White landed on Coleman after the move he was not moving for a couple of minutes so then they got paramedics to assist him out of the area. This was a scary moment anytime wrestlers get injured the match is never of importance due to the fact that Joe Coleman health becomes far more significant. Then we took a 5 minute intermission to let everything cool down.
We got great news from Scott D’Amore he stated that Coleman has got feeling back all throughout his body. Then I was talking to George “IceMan” and he told me the day after that Coleman is back home getting healthy which is great news. This is why I hate people who call Wrestling fake its scripted but Wrestlers are trained professionals but it still hurts getting slammed and taking bumps for years on your body. Plus wrestlers have to be incredible shape for their entire career if they want to make millions but not necessary all the time.
George “IceMan” and Destiny Wrestling dropped some massive announcements for their upcoming shows. August 30 SummerHeat is their next show and the Dudley Boyz will be making their debut. In addition the NEW Destiny World Champion PJ Black will be taking on Rey Mysterio on October 2.
