IWA Mid-South – King Of The Deathmatches 2007 Night One (06.22.2007) (Wrestling Review)

IWA Mid-South

King Of The Deathmatches Night One

Plainfield, Indiana

June 22nd, 2007

 

King Of The Death Matches 2007 First Round Barbed Wire Ropes, Bats & Tables Match
Mickie Knuckles vs. Tank

Solid opening match. Mickie showed off wanting to stand against Tank for this. A lot of hard hits here and blood between both of them. Not a very weapons heavy match but it had heart behind it. 

3 / 5

King Of The Death Matches 2007 First Round Barbed Wire Ropes Taipei Death Match
Rollin’ Hard vs. Necro Butcher

 A slower match that never really hit the spot. It was shorter too so that might be it. Taipei matches are usually hit or miss though. This one at least had some good blood in it. 

2 / 5

King Of The Death Matches 2007 First Round Barbed Wire Ropes Four Corners Of Pain & Staple Gun Match
Mad Man Pondo vs. Scotty Vortekz

A decent match with Pondo bleeding a ton and Scotty taking some big bumps. The spots with the ornaments and the cactus were pretty brutal looking. Ornaments in particular looked vicious. Not the best match as Pondo doesn’t always move the best but the violence was spot on. 

3 / 5

IWA Mid-South Death Match Title King Of The Death Matches 2007 First Round Barbed Wire Ropes Thumbtack Death Match
Drake Younger (c) vs. Kenji Fukimoto

A short match but with that came some good moves. All the thumbtacks here was nuts and they both took some good moves straight onto a massive pile of them. 

2.5 / 5

King Of The Death Matches 2007 First Round Tables, Ladder, Lighttubes & Chairs Barbed Wire Cage Match
Dysfunction vs. Danny Havoc

Dear lord Dysfunction bled a ton here. This was when him and Danny were new in the scene and both these guys went all out for 10 minutes. The fall off the cage was insane and this match showed why both these guys could become big deathmatch names. 

3.5 / 5

King Of The Death Matches 2007 First Round Home Run Derby Death Match
Mitch Page vs. Freakshow

Both guys were over from this match with the crowd but this was a slower sluggish deathmatch between two big guys who couldn’t wrestle much. Both bled buckets though and took some rough hits. 

1.5 / 5

King Of The Death Matches 2007 First Round Fans Bring The Weapons Match
Insane Lane vs. Brain Damage

Decent match but just wasn’t into it much. A lot of crowd brawling throughout which is a first for this event. Some decent spots and stiff headbutts but just wasn’t grabbing me. 

2 / 5

King Of The Death Matches 2007 First Round Fans Bring The Weapons Match
Corporal Robinson vs. Deranged

Another sloppy and sluggish but bloody match. Both guys took some big hits and the final looked sloppy but rough. They got a bit of a longer match than most and bled a ton so to end Night 1 this way could have been worse. 

2.5 / 5
