In front of his hometown crowd, “The One” Vinny Dunn hit the Muscle Buster on “The Professional” Joseph Kinkade and kept him down for the three count to retain his IPW New Zealand Heavyweight Championship at Coastal Assault!
The match kicked off with a test of strength, where Joseph Kinkade used his amateur wrestling skills to take down Dunn, but the One powered out, forcing Kinkade outside to seek counsel from his manager, Gary O. Davis.
Davis reentered the ring and it was a grapple for advantage, where Dunn powered out and planted Kinkade on the floor. The challenger came back, cinching in a headlock, but Dunn escaped and hit a shoulder barge, sending Kinkade spilling outside.
The champion missed with a plancha over the top to the outside, and the pair then brawled on the outside, Vinny Dunn chopping the meat off Kinkade’s chest with the aid of the audience.
Taking it back to the ring, Dunn put Kinkade down with a brutal clothesline and pinned for two. A suplex earned another two count for the champion before he locked in a submission on the Professional.
Kinkade turned in the submission and got a pin on the champion, who halted the count, succeeding in keeping the submission locked. Kinkade countered again, and this time rabidly sought the ankle lock, doing damage to the knee of Dunn.
The pair criss-crossed in the ring and Vinny leapfrogged Kinkade, but his knee buckled underneath him, and the challenger, sensing a weakness and focused his attack on the knee of Dunn.
Kinkade threw Dunn out of the ring and made the mistake of turning his back and the champ skinned the cat back into the ring, and returned the favour throwing Kinkade outside and followed him out with a plancha.
Rolling the challenger back into the ring and hit a missile dropkick for two, but Kinkade reversed an Irish Whip and hit a suplex on Vinny for two. Mischa Ivanoff distracted the ref and Kinkade used the time to strangle the champ with his tight straps.
Kinkade hit a flying knee from the top for two and pinned twice more for measure, forcing the champ to expend precious energy on kicking out. Dunn reversed an armbar into a backslide, then hit shoulder rams that put both men down on the mat.
When they regained their feet the pair traded blows until Dunn managed to get Kinkade onto the ropes to hit the Muscle Buster. Gary O. Davis engineered a distraction and Mischa Ivanoff clocked Dunn with a chair and pulled Kinkade over Dunn for the cover.
The champ kicked out on two and then caught Kinkade on the ropes and hit a slam. Dunn went to the top but missed the dropkick and Kinkade locked in the Stretch Muffler, doing further damage to the already injured knee of the champ.
Kinkade broke the hold and hit a fireman’s carry slam on the champ for two. Peter Lane then took Ivanoff out of action on the outside and while Gary O. Davis registered his disapproval with the ref Vinny hit a Spinebuster followed by his second Muscle Buster, and Kinkade stayed down for three, leaving “The One” Vinny Dunn to leave Coastal Assault still the New Zealand Heavyweight Champion!
