January 24th, 2004 from St. Johnsburg Fire Hall in Wheatfield, NY
-ESW Commissioner Dan Murphy opened the show, talking about the several television cameras present as ESW events will now be taped by both Wrestlevision and Wrestleblast TV. After running down the card, he introduced the ESW Heavyweight Title challenger for the night, Danny Magic. Magic, the most hated wrestler in Western New York, antagonized the crowd and said he would win the ESW title tonight.
1. ESW Tag Team Title: New City Thugs (J-Man & R-Haz) (c) beat J.P. Hawke & Damien Alexander by disqualification to retain the title.
-J-Man got the microphone before the match started, in which he took the time to brutally insult the stench of the audience.
-Damien Alexander and J.P. Hawke were disqualified when Alexander gave senior official Christopher Burns a belly-to-belly suplex after Burns was distracted when Hawke tagged to Alexander. Alexander proceeded to destroy everyone in sight even after the bell rang.
2. ESW Hardcore Title: TSK (w/ Edgar) (c) beat Grappler X after the mailbox bomb to retain the title.
-Following TSK’s victory, the lights went out and Omen suddenly appeared. Omen, with new music and a different look, attacked ESW Hardcore Champion TSK with a crowbar.
3. Damien Alexander beat Ice after the Cardinal Sin.
-Jonny Puma, with his bodyguard Ice came out for an interview. Puma mentioned how at Season’s Beatings, Ice accidentally speared Puma. There was some noticeable tension when Puma said, “Hey, I didn’t hire you for your brains, big guy.” Puma then put out an open challenge for Ice, who was not preparing for a match. Damien Alexander, still visably angry from the incident in the opening match, came through the curtain to accept the challenge and defeat Ice in a battle of powerhouses.
4. El Lucho Grande vs. Purple Rain ended in a no contest.
-Very early in the match, Sakura ran out (sporting a new mask and new attire) and viciously plowed through Purple Rain and El Lucho Grande, giving Purple Rain a superplex. Clayton T. McAllister saw this as an opportunity to gain a new client and made his entrance. Although Sakura at first also seemed hostile to McAllister, it looks like Sakura has become his second client (along with Dre Gibson) in ESW. And before Sakura left, he drilled El Lucho’s head into the mat with a frightening variation of a brainbuster reportedly called the Akuma Driver.
5. Cade Cassidy & “The Blade” Lance Steel beat Benjamin Smythe & Chris Cooper when Cassidy pinned Smythe after a frog splash.
-This match saw two former challengers to Chris Cooper’s ESW Interstate Title get at least some revenge after they were both cheated out of possible victories over Cooper.
6. Casket Match: Shade beat Jonny Puma.
-The stipulation in this match, Puma being so confident he would defeat Shade, was that Shade could pick a style of match of his choice. Shade came out, perched on a casket and it was clear Shade would once again be involved in a casket match. When it appeared Puma had the match won, Puma’s bodyguard Ice came to the ring and shockingly gave Puma the Frostbite. This left Shade to roll Puma into the casket for the huge upset win.
7. “The Nightmare” Dre Gibson (w/ Clayton T. McAllister) beat Crazy Cris Cavana after the Death Valley Driver.
-In this bitter grudge match, Gibson attacked the same leg of Crazy Cris Cavana that he fractured six months ago. It was also a battle of two very powerful men, with “The Nightmare” winning out.
8. ESW Heavyweight Title: Mastiff (c) beat Danny Magic after the Crude Awakening to retain the title.
-Mastiff once again proved why he is Empire State Wrestling’s Heavyweight Champion. Danny Magic however, proved himself more in this match than any match previously in his career. Magic came close on multiple occasions to defeating Mastiff, including with the a new move he debuted called the Anarchy Slam. But the night again ended with Mastiff’s Crude Awakening and the ESW Heavyweight Title staying around his waist. Magic even seemingly admitted defeated, that Mastiff was the better man as he reluctantly extended and shook the hand of the champion.
