UKPW at Nye Bevan Hall, Hackney, London – June 24th 2004
Before the first match got underway, ring announcer Gareth Lankshear introduced the newest tag team on the UKPW roster – Aaron Jason & Stevie James. Jason immediately took exception to the pairing and refused to ever team up with Stevie. When Jason ordered James to leave the ring, it appeared that Stevie would do just that. However, Jason soon found himself on the wrong end of a superkick as James levelled the man he was set to team with in the Main Event. ‘The European Icon’ Andrew Coyne came to ringside at this point and berated Stevie James for superkicking Jason. Coyne vowed to shove Stevie’s English pride down his throat when they wrestled later that night.
Anton Green vs Aaron Jason
After being assisted backstage by Andrew Coyne, Aaron Jason’s opponent, Anton Green, was introduced to the ring. Jason would soon follow, still reeling from the superkick of Stevie James. The match went back and forth with Jason constantly trying to humiliate his opponent and often getting into verbal confrontations with the fans. After Jason missed a legdrop, Green mounted an assault with a russian leg sweep and a series of knockdowns. As Green climbed to the top rope, Jason was able to regain his bearings and leaned on the ropes, causing ‘The Atomic Ant’ to fall to the canvas. Jason appeared to be back in control but as he charged at Green, he was met with a boot. Anton followed up with an ace crusher to score the pinfall win.
Stevie James vs Andrew Coyne
In a rematch from the finals of the 4 man tournament back in March, Stevie James took on ‘The European Icon’ Andrew Coyne. This match saw both men trade wrestling holds throughout the contest but it would be Coyne’s frustration at his opponent’s resilience that saw him not just bend and break the rules but also try to do the same to James’ arm as he smashed it several times into the ringpost. Coyne refused to relent and the referee called for a disqualification. This infuriated ‘The European Icon’ who proceded to choke Stevie with the European flag until The Green Machine made their way to ringside to halt his attack.
Marcus Hiscott vs Anton Green
As Marcus Hiscott’s scheduled opponent was unable to make it to the Nye Bevan Hall, Marcus requested to wrestle his tag team partner, Anton Green, in a substitute match. The request was accepted and The Green Machine wrestled each other in a sportsmanlike contest which was cut short by Andrew Coyne and Aaron Jason. Jason and Coyne jumped into the ring after Hiscott had hit a triple suplex combination and pummeled Hiscott and Green. With The Green Machine down, Jason grabbed Anton Green’s “It’s Go Time” t-shirt, wearing it in an act of mockery towards ‘The Atomic Ant’. The match between Green and Hiscott was ruled a no-contest.
The Green Machine vs Andrew Coyne & Aaron Jason
Following the interval, Stevie James came out to team with Aaron Jason in the Main Event against The Green Machine. Reiterating his comments from earlier, Jason refused to team with James and called out a replacement partner, Andrew Coyne. Stevie refused to relinquish his spot in the match which prompted an assault by Coyne and Jason. The Green Machine came out from the back to ward off James’ attackers and were more than willing to take the challenge of Jason and Coyne. Stevie James was helped out of the ring and the tag match got under way. Coyne and Jason showed impressive teamwork as well as a penchant for illegal doubleteaming. After Green and Coyne collided with a double clothesline, the race was on to tag their respective partners. Both men were able to make the tag and Hiscott came in full of fire, bouncing his opponents around the ring. Hiscott scored the pinfall after driving Jason’s head into the mat with a fame-asser as Green prevented ‘The European Ic! on’ from breaking the pin. After The Green Machine had left ringside, Stevie James made his way to the ring as Coyne argued with the referee. When Coyne turned his attention away from the referee, ‘Wrestling’s Cool Kid’ blasted him with the superkick much to the delight of the crowd.
