     Today's edition of !BANG! picked up the continuation of last week's
program featuring Adam Windsor defending the Funking Conservatory World
Heavyweight Championship against FC United States Champion Osamu Nishimura of
New Japan Pro Wrestling in a 60 minute Ironman Match. Today's program picked
up with two falls for Nishimura to one fall for Adam. The second half of the
match started off with Adam going for a kick to Nishimura's stomach, but
Nishimura caught Adam's leg and began attacking Adam's knee. Adam was able to
break the hold. Adam then backed Nishimura into the corner and gave him a
series of shots to the stomach followed up by a series of European uppercuts.
Adam then applied the double arm suplex on Nishimura. Adam went for a cover,
but Nishimura kicked out at two. Adam went for another cover, but Nishimura
again kicked out at two. Both wrestlers locked up one more time with
Nishimura pushing Adam into the corner. Nishimura started to back off with
what looked like a clean break, but Nishimura caught Adam with a dropkick to
the stomach. Nishimura then went to the top turnbuckle and came down on
Adam's leg with a knee drop. Nishimura then tied Adam up in a figure four
leglock. The Claw asked Adam if he wanted to give up but Adam said no. Adam
tried to reverse the hold but Nishimura wouldn't let him. Adam did manage to
get to the ropes forcing the hold to be broken. Nishimura whipped Adam into
the ropes and followed up with a hiptoss. Nishimura then attempted a hiplock
but Adam reversed into a backslide pinning combination, but Nishimura kicked
out at two. Adam then knocked Nishimura with a sigiry and was able to make
the cover for three. The match now stood at two falls per wrestler.
     In between falls, a video of the most annoying man in the Funking
Conservatory, FC Hardcore Champion Heater, was shown. Heater took the time
and opportunity to reveal who his mystery tag team partner for the match with
Adam and Nishimura on September 28 would be. That man's name is "The Storm"
Chuck Reid. Reid is an American born citizen and he resides in Tokyo, Japan.
He served the US Navy for 6 years and is also skilled in martial arts.Heater
and Reid said some rough words to Adam and Nishimura and say they are ready
for the match.
     The Ironman Match resumed  with both Adam and Nishimura exchanging
forearm shots and uppercuts. Nishimura tried for a pin, but Adam kicked out
at two. Nishimura then caught Adam with a Japanese armbar. Both men kept
trying to pin each other but they kept kicking out at two. Both Adam and
Nishimura then tried applying the abdominal stretch on each other, but
Nishimura used the momentum to fling Adam out of the ring. All of a sudden,
Adam was attacked by Rainman of NWA Wildside. Rainman then threw Adam back
into the ring and into an abdominal stretch by Nishimura. Nishimura rolled
Adam to the mat and was able to score another pinfall on Adam. Nishimura had
a three falls to two falls advantage on Adam with only  minutes left in the
match. The match resumed with Nishimura pushing Adam into the ropes, but Adam
fired back with kneelifts to the midsection of Nishimura and followed up with
a piledriver. Adam went for a cover, but Nishimura got his foot on the ropes
at two. Adam then plowed Nishimura with a huge suplex. Adam went for another
cover, but Nishimura again kicked out at two. Adam tried a backslide pinning
combination, but Nishimura once again kicked out at two. Adam gave Nishimura
three uppercuts and followed up with a dropkick to Nishimura's back. Adam
went for a cover, but somehow Nishimura kicked out at two. As Adam was
picking Nishimura up, Nishimura countered with a Northern lights suplex into
a pin, but Adam kicked out at two. Nishimura whipped Adam into the ropes and
caught him in a sleeper hold. The Claw raised Adam's hand once, it dropped.
She raised Adam's hand a second time, it dropped again. Claw raised Adam's
hand a third time and it almost dropped but Adam got it right back up. With
two minutes remaining, both wrestlers went all out to try to either gain the
tying pinfall or score the winning fall. Adam gave Nishimura a bodyslam into
a pin, but Nishimura kicked out at two. Adam started climbing up to the top
turnbuckle, but Nishimura bounced against the ropes causing Adam to lose his
footing. Nishimura climbed up the ropes in an attempt at a superplex, but as
Nishimura superplexed Adam off the ropes, Adam leaned back and hooked
Nishimura's legs for the three count and the tying fall just as time expired.
As a result of the match ending in a draw, Adam Windsor remains the Funking
Conservatory World heavyweight Champion. Adam and Nishimura shook hands and
embraced at the end of the match.
