BREAKING NEWS ON THE STATUS OF MAPW
Chris Champion comes to the ring. He says he has some very exciting news, but also some bad news.
First the exciting news is that Mid-American Pro Wrestling will be undergoing some changes. First off we have for the
first time we have picked up a National TV contract to broadcast Rage weekly, Saturdays from 9-11 EST, on the new TBA Network.
As part of this agreement and to reflect the growth of the company, this wrestling enterprise which started in January 1980
as River City Wrestling, out of Salisbury Elementary School in Winnipeg Manitoba, is going to be renamed American Pro Wrestling.
It's not meant as a slap in the face against middle america but just to appear as not a regional fed when advertised for the
new TV contract.
That's the good news. The unfortunate news is that because of that deal the current syndication deal has fallen through.
Tonight will be the last night of Mid-American Pro Wrestling. We will go dark for the longest period ever, as the next event
will be the first APW broadcast on TBA, on June 2nd.
Now on to more current events, and tonight's final broadcast. Adam Riggs will be defending his title against Kurt Angle
one more time, and there will be no interference from Brock Lesnar.
<<< cue "Phenomenal" by LL Cool J >>>
The fans are on their feet jeering as Adam Riggs, April Hunter, and Brock Lesnar make their way to the
ring. Chris Champion immediately bails out of the ring and goes to stand beside the announce table.
Riggs] Yeah, yeah...shut up you bunch of ******. Go ***** your Moms you bunch of redneck inbred hicks. Hopefully this
change will mean that we will be able to compete in some higher class cities like New York, LA, Las Vegas, or Miami. It would
be nice to see a fans smile with a full set of teeth again.
Hey Champion...you want me to step into the ring and defend against Angle? Screw you Champion...why don't I defend this
title against you Ha-Ha...you were once a wrestler who thought he was better then he really was, so why don't you step into
the ring with me. Are you scared ***** *******.
Champion] You want me to step in the ring with you? I've been retired for almost a decade now. I'm the most dangerous
man to ever step in the squared circle, but I can't carry a whole match anymore. I tell you what ***** for brains, let's make
it a tag team match. You and your girlfriend there...no not April...Brock Lesbian...against me and Kurt Angle! What do you
have to say to that goof?
Riggs] You're on...you just signed your death certificate little man.

Nigel McGuiness defeated Petey Williams by pinfall after the Tower of London at 9:01
-very entertaining match, both men can really wrestle. The end came only after Nigel was twice able to avoid the Candian
Destroyer, and then nail his own finisher.
MAPW Women's Title Match
April Hunter and Jazz battled to a double countout at 6:09
[April Hunter retains the MAPW Women's Title]
-Hunter never really seemed to want this match to come to a conclusion, and appeared to be working at either a double
countout or getting herself disqualified. Finally Jazz couldn't control herself any longer and allowed her title shot to disappear
by getting into a prolonged brawl that saw both ladies counted out.
Former MAPW Tag Team Champions Asp Evergreen and Eddie Chavez come to the ring along with Joanie
Laurer. Asp confronts Eddie about why he left him last week, and now they are no longer champs having lost to the
Natural Born Thrillers. Eddie says he was fed up with Joanie's interference and telling him to go in and save Asp. Eddie says
she was asking him to cheat and he got mad.
Asp goes on about their friendship, and we see a few seconds of their many comical clips together. Eddie looks like he
is almost ready to cry. He apologizes to Asp, says he is sorry and only wants the chance to make ammends and to get the tag
titles back. He admits to being jealous that Asp and Joanie have hooked-up, and that she hadn't appreciated his skills. Eddie
says he's over that now and is ready for the Six man mixed tag match next.
Joanie Laurer, Asp Evergreen & Eddie Chavez defeated Dana Hamm, Sean O'Haire, and Mark Jindrak by pinfall
when Laurer pinned Hamm after a double underhook piledriver at 10:35
-The new tag champs NBT didn't seem to be on their game today, and Laurer was a house on fire compared to Hamm.
After a short celebration, Eddie takes the mic and warns the NBT that they are coming to get their titles back.
But suddenly Asp just hangs his head and looks ashamed. Taking the mic he turns to Eddie and says "your my best friend
in the world, and I'm sorry to spring this on you like this, but I'm leaving MAPW for a while". Eddie is speachless and waits
for an explanation.
Asp drops the bombshell that he and Joanie are getting married! Asp says he wants Eddie to be his best man, and the ceremony
will be hold on June 2nd right here on Rage, and then he intends to retire from pro wrestling. This will be the first time
in the 27 year history of the company where we have a wrestling marriage. Eddie accepts and shakes hands with Asp, and hugs
