|Jan 25, 2010 at 12:00 AM|
In the Title vs. Title main event at New Years Bash the huge clash between the IPW Australia’s South Pacific Champion “The Future” Nick Burns and IPW New Zealand Heavyweight Champion “The One” Vinny Dunn came to a precipitous end when the ref was forced to call the match a No Contest after rampant interference from Gary O. Davis, meaning both men retained their Championships!
Nick Burns took a time out in the early portion of the match after suffering an onslaught at the hands of Vinny Dunn. Two shoulder barges and a flying fist kept the momentum going for the NZ Champ and a quick pin earned him a two.
Dunn headed up top but missed with the Flying Elbow and it was the Australian who took control of the match, brutalising the arm of the One, and hitting a shoulder breaker for two.
Burns continued the punishment of Dunn, but Vinny nimbly evaded a charge to the corner and countered into a roll up, but was unable to capitalise and the ball continued in Nick Burns court.
The Future came back at Vinny Dunn with stomps and punches, keeping control of the match, continuing to do damage to the arm of the NZ Champ. Burns threw Vinny over the ropes, but as his back was turned Vinny skinned the cat back into the ring and drop kicked Burns out of the ring.
Vinny then hit a plancha over the top rope, and got some audience assistance in chopping the mat off the South Pacific Champion’s chest. Taking it back to the ring Dunn hit a missile dropkick from the top for two.
Burns countered a move from Dunn and locked in a Crossface, and the NZ Champ writhed in pain. He broke his way out of the hold, but Burns turned it into a pin for two. He then followed up with a Facebuster on Dunn for another two count.
The frustrated Australian then choked out Dunn, but broke the hold before the ref could DQ him. The Future then launched Dunn to the canvas with a Fireman’s Carry Facebuster, which earned him another two count thanks to an arrogant pin.
He came back and hit another Facebuster for two more, and then frustrated, went outside and grabbed his belt. The ref wrenched it off him and the interruption was enough for Vinny to gain his feet and hit a massive Powerbomb, but Gary O. Davis interrupted the count.
Dunn then hit Straight from the Coast, and once again Gary O. Davis stopped the count. Burns fought his way back, and locked in the Crossface on Dunn once again, but this time the One was able to drag his way to the ropes and break the hold.
It wasn’t for long though, and the Future locked in the Crossface once again, but the ropes were within reach of the NZ Champ. Nick Burns hit back at Dunn with wild punches, but he then fell victim to another brutal Powerbomb at the hands of the One.
Gary O. Davis interfered once again, and a frustrated ref called for the match to restart. Before this could happen Mischa Ivanoff and Davis launched an attack on Dunn. Peter Lane managed to stop the attack, but by that point the ref was forced to call the match a No Contest, and both men retained their championships at New Years Bash!
