Today's edition of !BANG! started off with the FC Triple Crown Champion,
The Royal Stud Adam Windsor, defending his FC International Championship
against Rainman of NWA Wildside. The match started off with both men locking
up and Rainman pushing Adam into the corner attempting a roundhouse right,
but Adam ducked out of the way. Adam and Rainman locked up again, this time
Rainman was able to get Adam into a headlock but Adam countered by pushing
Rainman into the ropes. Rainman countered back with a shoulder tackle to
Adam. Rainman bounced off the ropes, hopped over Adam, and was able to duck a
clothesline attempt by Adam, but was knocked to the mat by Adam's boot to the
face. Adam then caught Rainman with an armlock which Rainman countered into
an armlock which went into a headlock. Adam tried a schoolboy pinning
combination Rainman, but he kicked out at two. The two wrestlers locked up
again with Adam catching Rainman with an armbar which was reversed by
Rainman, but Adam countered with a fireman's carry. Adam went for a cover but
Rainman kicked out at two. Adam quickly went for another cover but Rainman
kicked out again at two. Adam once again applied an armbar on Rainman. Adam
whipped Rainman into the roped and caught him with a clothesline which was
followed up by two swinging elbow drops and a leg drop. Adam went for a
cover, but Rainman once again kicked out at two. Adam then tried a double arm
suplex on Rainman. Adam went for another cover, but somehow Rainman kicked
out at two. Adam threw Rainman into the corner and delivered a running
clothesline. Adam went for another running clothesline but Rainman got his
foot up and retaliated on Adam with a spinning sidewalk slam. Rainman went
for his first cover, but Adam kicked out at two. Rainman then caught Adam
with a suplex followed up by a leg drop into a headlock. Adam made his way
out of the hold with two blows to Rainman stomach. Adam bounced off the ropes
and was caught by a spin kick from Rainman. Rainman went for another cover,
but Adam again kicked out at two. Rainman whipped Adam into the ropes and
executed a perfect dropkick. Rainman went for another cover, but Adam was
able to get his shoulder up at two. Rainman tried another sidewalk slam
pinning combination, but Adam refused to go down and kicked out at two.
Rainman decided to use one of his finishing moves, the sit down power bomb on
Adam, but Adam kicked out at 2 7/8.  Rainman gave Adam a bodyslam and then
decided to use his other finishing move, the moonsault. Rainman came off the
top rope but Adam moved out of the way as Rainman came down and landed on
nothing. Adam made his move and covered Rainman for the three count and the
victory. After the match, Adam and Rainman shook hands showing each other
respect. Your winner and still FC International Champion, The Royal Stud Adam
Windsor.
     The next match would be a Triple Threat match for the FC Whoa Man's
(Women's) Championship pitting the self proclaimed Whoa Man's Champion,
Heater, against the challengers Ravage and Vanesa Harding, The American
Hardbody. The match started off with Vanesa catching Heater with an armlock.
Heater was able to do a kippup and reverse the armlock on Vanesa. Heater then
rammed Vanesa's head into the turnbuckle. As Heater backed away from Vanesa
laughing, he wasn't laughing when he turned around and was clotheslined and
bodyslammed by Ravage. Ravage then picked Heater up and locked on a bearhug.
As Heater was locked in the bear hug, Vanesa had recovered and applied a
sleeper hold on Heater meaning he was locked into TWO submission holds at the
same time. Both ladies then double whipped Heater into the ropes and gave him
a double clothesline. Both Vanesa and Ravage then placed Heater in the
corner, ripped his shirt off, and started taking turns chopping him. Heater
fell to the floor after the chopfest and Vanesa was able to deliver a bronco
buster on him. Vanesa then went to whip Heater into the ropes, but Heater
reversed the whip and Vanesa cartwheeled her way to safety. Heater charged at
her, but she gave him a clothesline for his trouble. Ravage followed up by
putting Heater into a suplex. Heater managed to get up and knock Ravage to
the mat. As Heater prepared to finish off Ravage with the move called Burning
Bridges, Vanesa came up behind him and applied a dragon sleeper hold. Heater
had no choice but to tap out and Vanesa Harding had accomplished what she had
set out to do, and that was to restore the Whoa Man's belt to the Women's
belt. Ravage was upset at the outcome so she tried to take the belt from
Vanesa and the two ladies ended up in a catfight. Ravage left the ring and
shouted to Vanesa that it was far from over. You winner and new FC WOMEN'S
Champion, Vanesa Harding, The American Hardbody.
     This week's feature match featured Kid Italy and Trauma taking on NWA
Wildside's Lost Boyz, Azreal and Slim J, for the vacant FC Tag Team
Championship. The match began with Kid Italy and Slim J locking up. Slim J
gained the upper hand with an arm lock, but Kid Italy reversed into his own
arm lock. Slim J countered with a forward roll, kippup, and back into the arm
lock on Kid Italy. Kid Italy managed to get Slim J into a headlock, but Slim
J escaped and caught Kid Italy with a spin kick to the head. Slim J made the
tag to Azreal, who kicked Kid Italy in the head as well. Azreal gave Kid
Italy two blows to the head and tagged Slim J back in. Slim J gave Kid Italy
a kick to the head and then another spin kick to the head. Slim J went for a
cover, but Kid Italy kicked out at two. Slim J made the tag to Azreal and
both Lost Boyz gave Kid Italy a double kick to the head. Azreal went for a
cover, but Kid Italy kicked out at two. Azreal went for another cover, but
Kid Italy again kicked out at two. Azreal made the tag to Slim J who gave Kid
Italy a suplex. Slim J then went to the top rope to give Kid Italy a
moonsault but missed when Kid Italy moved out of the way and was finally able
to tag Trauma into the match. Trauma ended up traumatized in the corner after
Azreal did a job on him. Slim J gave Kid Italy a bodyslam which was followed
up by Azreal's flying elbow drop and Slim J's corkscrew plancha. Slim J made
the cover for three and the victory. You winners and new FC Tag Team
Champions, NWA Wildside's The Lost Boyz.
