An outdoor CZW show! Lots of audible “Kash-queer” chants and one loud lone voice calling the Backseat Boyz “f*cking fags”. After being recently fired as a referee, they introduce ‘Discount’ Dewey Donovan as their new manager. He’s managed to get them out of defending their tag titles today with a bit of contract wrangling, when to ringside walks Ric Blade and Shorty. You can’t make out everything he says, but he thinks that he deserves a rematch with Trent for the CZW Jr Heavyweight title and the match is made.
Blade takes Trent over the top rope and to the outside with a headscissors, and as Johnny is around to check on his partner, catches them both with a quebrada into a flip dive. Springboard missile dropkick back inside for two. After Trent escapes a surfboard, Blade boxes his ears with some kicks, although this is hardly Tajiri or Low Ki dishing out the punishment! Irish whip is reversed and Kashmere pulls down the top rope as Blade sails over it. Trent with a plancha off the top turnbuckle to the floor, soon followed by a moonsault bodyblock off a skip, as both Dewey and Johnny hold Blade in position. Missile dropkick by Trent and Dewey is distracting the official allowing the Backseats to double team behind his back. Acid heads upstairs, but Shorty swipes a leg out from under him. Another weak looking distraction spot and Shorty, obviously fancying herself as being the next Lita, goes for a top rope frankensteiner but botches it so badly that it looks like Trent powerbombed her! Springboard somersault legdrop by Blade for two. Trent backdrops him over the top rope, however Blade lands on the apron and a slingshot DDT back into the ring. He sets up a table on the outside, but that works against him as Acid puts him through it with a great looking ‘Blue Thunder Driver’ off the apron. As the ref starts to count both men out, Dewey sneaks up from behind and clobbers him with his briefcase. Trent misses a moonsault off the middle and Blade is out and setting up a second table. Dewey and Johnny snatch him so that Trent can blast him with a chair, but he ends up accidentally hitting Dewey instead. Blade then kicks the chair into Trent’s own face and lays him on the table. He climbs up onto the top of a trailer only to overshoot the ‘Swanton bomb’, missing Trent completely, and landing tailbone first on the grass. Only Ric Blade! The crowd chant “one more time” and he’s ready to repeat that spot when he’s jumped by the H8 Club. They give him a few shots before dragging Shorty to the ring and superplexing her through a table. A couple of officials, Nick Mondo and some medics are out to check on her, and the match just ends with Blade carrying Shorty to the back.
Bar that cool ‘Blue Thunder Driver’ off the apron and through the table I didn’t think this was good at all. The sequences that these two did looked like they’d been rehearsed and practised meticulously; there was nothing organic about them in the slightest. The distraction spots were ridiculously bad, and also what is the point of doing distraction spots when earlier in the match Kashmere and Dewey had both been involved right in front of the official’s eyes? Shorty is the worst and I’m hoping that the injury angle at the end was a way of writing her out and we never have to see her accompanying Blade again. That botch at the finish was typical Ric Blade, overshooting the Swanton and crashing and burning on the grass. Didn’t like Trent then having to lie there like a lemon, but at least the H8 Club’s interference and putting a stop to the second Swanton didn’t make it look a preposterous as I thought it was going to.
