- from Daniel Lee Lumm
Match times recorded by Avery Edwards.
At the beginning of the show, a message from Doc Gayton tells everyone that Jimmy Rave and Kyle Matthews will be in a 1 on 1 match just a few days before Doctoberfest as part of Impact Wrestling’s show in Macon, Georgia. He also informs everyone that Mike Posey will be the referee, and that if Mike Posey shows favoritism towards Rave or even looks unprofessional he will be gone from Rampage Pro Wrestling. With that, Jimmy Rave Approved makes their way to the ring. Rave goes on to explain about how Hollis already hurt Patrick Bentley and how his Approved are already at the advantage for their big 10-Man Tag Match later on in the show. He continues by saying that he will beat Matthews at Impact Wrestling and go on to lead his Approved to victory at the War Games match at Doctoberfest.
“Adorable” Anthony Andrews (w/ “Marvelous” Michael Stevens) vs Drew Adler
Referee: Stan Robinson
Andrews receives a “Sweat Tart” chant from the fans for his pink and yellow attire. Marv attacks his old friend, Adler, while being vocally against the fans who continue to throw insults at Andrews. Just as Adler was about to pick up the pin, Marv got on the apron to distract the ref and was left unpunished. He came in again to interrupt a pin and was allowed to stay at ringside as the match continued. Finally, with Adler on the top rope, Marv jumps on the apron to push Adler down to force the referee to call for the bell.
Drew Adler wins via disqualification at 5:53
After the match the two go to beat down Adler until Jacobs rushes to the ring. Andrews and Marv together prove to be too much for Jacobs and Adler. A fan jumps the rail causing a big disruption and ends the conflict in the ring, ultimately resulting in the fan being escorted out by security with Adler and Jacobs looking confused.
NWA RPW Heavyweight Championship Match
“Untouchable” Jeremy Vain (w/ Doug Somers)(C) vs Frankie Valentine
Referee: Dustin Robinson
Prior to the match starting, Jeremy Vain says he’s scared of nobody and will accept the challenge of anyone at Doctoberfest. Bill Behrens informs Doug Somers that he is set to face Frankie Valentine at Doctoberfest. Vain is much more aggressive in this match than previously, a nice development for the new Heavyweight Champion. The match reaches a finish when Somers plays distraction and Vain nails Valentine with the Heavyweight Title, followed by a DDT for the win.
Jeremy Vain wins via pinfall at 6:15 to retain the RPW Heavyweight Championship
After the match Somers and Vain attack Valentine. J-Rod, Kyle Matthews, Adrian Hawkins, and Ace Rockwell make the save. A promo then plays with Mikael Judas accepting Vain’s open challenge. Doctoberfest will have Mikael Judas making his debut against Jeremy Vain for the RPW Heavyweight Title.
#1 Contender Match for the NWA RPW Tag Team Titles
Cash Vault (Rob Adonis & Bobby Moore)(w/ Charlie Cash) vs Hot Like Lava (Shaun Banks & Cru Jones)
Referee: Stan Robinson
The crowd was very supportive of Hot Like Lava in this match. Banks and Jones didn’t use as many of their rule-breaking tactics in this match while Cash Vault pulled all of their usual cards. The match comes to a close with Suspects rushing to the ring with steel chairs and attacking Cash Vault. The ref calls for the bell and the match is announced as a No Contest (as opposed to a DQ in favor of Cash Vault).
No Contest via interference at 9:54
Suspects clear the ring of everyone and remain until both Cash Vault and Hot Like Lava leave. They then celebrate with the crowd cheering.
Ben Masters stands in the ring to interview Jeremy Vain and Doug Somers. Key points include Vain sending a message to Mikael Judas saying he will show why he is “Untouchable” and when Somers is interrupted by a recording of Doc saying that Valentine vs Somers will be a Non-Title First Blood Match.
5 On 4 Handicap Tag Match to determine first entry in War Games:
Jimmy Rave Approved (Mike Posey & Chip Day & Corey Hollis & Sal Rinauro & Jimmy Rave) vs J-Rod & Ace Rockwell & Adrian Hawkins & Kyle Matthews
Referee: Dustin Robinson
The match apparently had Rampage Rules (Luchador tag rules) but it wasn’t advertised or announced. Approved seemed to use a lot of hit and run tactics until around 8 minutes in, where the match gets more intense. J-Rod missed the top rope when he went to spring into the ring from the apron, resulting in him getting caught in the ropes and hurting his knee. Around 16 minutes in, everyone gets into the ring and some alternations between team members hitting each other with signature moves takes place before continuing the match. Approved manages to trap Ace Rockwell in the ring and wear down his knee for about 10 minutes while keeping themselves fresh. Kyle Matthews hot tags in around 30 minutes in, followed by another sequence of signature moves by both teams. When Rave accidently hits Sal with a Spear meant for Matthews, the two get into another confrontation. Matthews uses this to push Sal into Rave, knocking Rave out of the ring, and locking Sal in the Hidaka Lock for the victory.
Kyle Matthews & J-Rod & Adrian Hawkins & Ace Rockwell win via submission at 36:39 to gain the first entry into War Games.
