Joel Bateman defeated Reed Bentley to win the American Deathmatch Championship at ICW No Holds Barred Pit FighterX 10. His reign didn’t last long as he was defeated by Eric Ryan the following night.

Astronaut Results:

Singles Match: AR Fox vs. Nick Wayne

This was a first time match up between these two as they started off with a stiff collar and elbow tie up; the action picked up right away spilling to the floor with each man evading the other’s highflying offense, eventually wrestling to a stalemate. The two men shake hands and once again go at each other with the veteran AR Fox hitting a moonsault to the floor which was followed up by a top rope leg drop on the apron. Nick Wayne gets caught with a stiff kick right to the nose which stunned him; he fought back briefly but AR Fox was able to cut his offense off quickly. AR Fox hits a 450 for the victory.

Cardona grabbed the mic from Emil and cut a promo, reciting his accolades, mentions the last time Wrestlemania was in Dallas he won the Intercontinental Championship and that he should be wrestling Moxley for the GCW World Title. He turns his venom towards his opponent at Spring Break, Chris Dickinson

“This guy is no match for me, this is the biggest match of his career and to me, it’s just another payday. I have to stay ready so I sought out the toughest opponent, notes how Mike Jackson has been wrestling for 50 years. Mike Jackson came out in tremendous shape, commentary notes that Mike Jackson is 72 years old. They shake hands and the match starts, Cardona yells at Jackson to lay down for him, Jackson does but rolls up Cardona for a two count. Mike Jackson punches Cardona in the face a couple of times and regroups on the floor; they return to the ring and Jackson attacks Cardona, sends him to the floor again and takes out Cardona with a dive. Later on in the match, Jackson grabs a knuckle lock, climbs to the top rope and proceeds to walk on the top rope to all four corners. It doesn’t phase Cardona who hits an atomic drop followed by a series of bootscrapes for the victory.

Matt Cardona Defeated Action Mike Jackson

“I take back everything I said about you, you old piece of trash, you’re not a has been, you’re a ‘never was.’ Speaking of people who will be a ‘never was’, Chris Dicksinson, you pussy, at Spring Break you’re going to find out why I am The Deathmatch King.”

Dickinson charged the ring, Cardona bailed but Mike Jackson forced Cardona back in the ring, Dickinson went to powerbomb Cardona but Cardona was able to escape.

Singles Match: ACH vs. Tony Deppen

ACH is such a fantastic performer and this first time matchup lived up to the hype, Tony blew a snot rocket into ACH’s head and they were off and running, ACH was able to evade Tony’s offense due to his quickness but Deppen stayed on him and kicked him in the face for a two count. With ACH grounded, Deppen started going to work, picking apart his opponents’ appendages with his submission-based offense. ACH was able to fire up and take Deppen out with a series of chops and strikes followed by 2 deadlift German suplexes for a two count. Deppen continues to target the previously injured arm of ACH but his opponent was able to catch Deppen off guard and hit a series of offense but his advantage didn’t last long as he hit running double knees and a top rope stomp for a 2 count that surprised and elated the crowd. ACH hit a top rope gutbuster, locked in a Texas Cloverleaf but Deppen was able to make his way to the ropes. Both men were exhausted as they traded a series of strikes in the center of the ring, Deppen hit a PK, locked in the cattle mutilation but ACH was able to make it to the ropes. Deppen was able to get the pin by leveraging himself using the ropes.

Tony Deppen Defeated ACH

Six Way Scramble: Jimmy Lloyd vs. Jordan Oliver vs. Zen Shi vs. Cole Radrick vs. Manders vs. Alex Colon

Manders goes to the floor right away and retrieves a door and attempts to put it in the ring but Cole drop kicked it into Manders face. Colon and Lloyd face off first showing off their wrestling prowess, Zen Shi and Olvier are next up, Zen hits some very impressive offense but he soaked in too much adulation from the crowd and was caught by Cole. Manders brings the door back into the ring and powerslams Cole through the door for a two count. Manders set up another door in the corner while Jimmy Lloyd takes the broken half the door and beats Manders over the head with it; he followed that up with tornado DDT through the door.

Alex Colon Defeated Manders, Jordan Oliver, Zen Shi, Jimmy Lloyd and COle Radrick

Joey Janela breaks up the WWA4 Showcase match taking out all of the competitors finishing them with the X-Factor. He lights up a cigarette, hits the Bronco buster, and calls for a chair and the mic.

“You’ll see none of those guys at Joey Janela’s Spring Break, now that we got that out of the way, It’s fitting that we are in Atlanta, Georgia, it’s fitting that we in the home of Ted Turner, we are in the home of one greatest wrestlers in the world and one of the smartest men in the world, CODY RHODES! What’s up Cody? Give me my flowers, you don’t have to give them to me now, you can give them to me in three weeks, Dallas, Texas, Spring Break 6, it’s not a show it’s a ceremony, I’m sorry Sean Waltman, I don’t want to kill you, but I have to kill you. It’s because Joey Janela is someone who has been neutered and neutralized by the professional wrestling business, my wrestling brain is too big to fit in my skull, inside the ring, and outside the ring. Hell, if it wasn’t for me we wouldn’t be here in Atlanta, we’d be in South Jersey, in some storage unit. If I didn’t get thrown off that building by Zandig, there wouldn’t be this, hell there wouldn’t be All Elite Wrestling. If I didn’t get thrown off that roof by John Zandig, I don’t think WWE would even have their Saudi Arabia deal. Give me my flowers at Spring Break 6, GIVE ME MY FLOWERS, while I am alive, don’t bring them to my grave, bring them to Spring Break Fucking 6.”

Singles Match: Allie Katch vs. Jordynne Grace

Last time I wrestled @JordynneGrace it was like 2 am mania last year and then we hopped in a car still in gear and went to sleep. The first time I wrestled her the ref ended the match early and I thought my career was over. Always an adventure 🙃 pic.twitter.com/aP9Om0Y6jl

— ALLIE KATCH (@AllieKATCH) March 12, 2022

Grace has the power advantage in this match and she proves it within the opening minutes of the match, landing a set of strikes and chops ending in a two count. Grace went to town on Katch as she was trying to recover in the corner, Katch escapes and runs at Grace who cut her off with a vicious double stomp for a two count. Katch started laying in her offense, running forearm followed by the hip attack eventually landing a series of strikes for a two count.

This match was supposed to take place at the Hammerstein but due to things out of their control the match didn’t happen, instead, we are getting this first-time match-up in the hometown of the Ring of Honor World Champion. Gresham went to work early, taking down Christain with a headlock takeover followed by arm submissions. Gresham was mocking Blake’s lack of submission prowess, so Blake turned up the speed and was able to get a nearfall stunning the World Champion. Gresham has the noticeable weight advantage over Christian but that doesn’t slow him down when Christian gets going. The faster the match goes the more of an advantage Christian has over Gresham. Christian was able to take Gresham off of his feet and return the mocking to his downed opponent. Gresham struck Christian with a brutal open head slam and started to pick away at the previously targeted arm with joint manipulation Gresham turned his attention to Christian’s knee but again went back to the now-injured arm. Every time Christian went for any offense, Gresham had an answer: he is a true master in the ring. I cannot wait until we one day get Gresham vs. Danielson.

The two traded some fast-paced near falls as both men contemplated what it will take for them to put each other away. They had a staredown in the center of the ring and started throwing forearms shots, Christian went for a suplex, struggled for a bit because of his injured arm but he is able to hit it, planting Gresham on his head. This was Christian’s best shot at achieving victory. The final sequences of this match were an absolute sprint, each man hitting dives to the floor, and inside the ring, Gresham slipped off of the rope but locked in a crossface but Christian was able to get out. Gresham continued to bring the fight to Christian, locking in the octopus in the center of the ring, Gresham lays in a series of hammerfists, Christian collapsed and the match was called.

Jonathan Gresham Defeated Blake Christian

GCW Tag Team Title Deathmatch: H8 Club (Matt Tremont and Nick Gage) vs. The Second Gear Crew (Mance Warner and Matthew Justice)

Both teams came out to massive reactions but Nick Gage’s entrance made the case for the loudest pop of the night. This was Mance Warner’s first match back since his ankle injury that occurred this past fall. Emil J is the best ring announcer in the world and it’s not even close. Both teams faced off in the center of the ring as the match got underway with all the competitors trading fists. The action spilled to the floor right away as Matt Justice lit up Tremont with a steel chair and went to take out Tremont who was sitting on the chair with a senton off the apron but no one was home. Mance Warner retrieves a crutch from a fan and hits Gage in the midsection with it as Tremont unloads on Justice’s head with a chair. Nick Gage got a prosthetic leg from the same fan and attacked Mance Warner with it. Gage and Warner set up two chairs and they started punching each other in the face. Tremont and Justice were fighting on the upper level of Center Stage, Justice hit a front flip off of the balcony which took out Tremont and himself.

— I Gif All The Wrestling (@Aregularindyfan) March 13, 2022

The crowd starts going crazy as Nick Gage grabs a box of tubes and brings them in the ring. Gage unloads the box as Mance and Gage start teeing off on each other with the light tubes. Gage’s head is a bloody mess as the crowd is going wild. Gage breaks a tube in half and starts carving away on Mance’s head. Gage went for light tube assisted face wash on Matthew Justice but was cut off when Mance threw a chair at his head. Justice went to the floor and brought in a pair of doors. Tremont hasn’t been seen in a while at this point. Gage got blasted with a steel chair from Justice Tremont, returns to the ring to save Gage. Tremont started stapling Matthew Justice and Mance Warner. Tremont takes a fork out of his boot but Mance Warner hammers the fork in Tremont’s ‘horn’ of scar tissue and is hit with a pair of tubes. Gage hits Justice with a bundle of tubes, throws Warner in the corner, and hit a tube-assisted facewash. Gage connects with a top rope piledriver putting Warner through a door. Gage goes for the pinfall. Justice hit a splash onto Tremont for a double pin. The crowd is chanting bullshit as Emil J announces that the match will be a draw.

H8 Club vs. SGC was a draw

Matt Tremont challenged SGC at Spring Break to compete in a three-way dance for the Tag Team Championships. SGC vs. H8 Club vs. The Briscoes.
