On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, WrestleZone Christmas Chaos (Comes Early!), W3L Remedy 2017ICW Fear & Loathing XICW Appetite for Destruction and WrestleZone Battle of the Nations 2015.

WrestleZone returned to Aberdeen’s Beach Leisure Centre on Saturday November 14th 2015 for Christmas Chaos (Comes Early!), featuring none other than Mick Foley. Brian Stephenson and Chris McDonald handled commentary duties for the event, however audio issues were unfortunately present throughout the DVD, but the action spoke for itself as it usually does.

WrestleZone Tag Team Championships
The Rejected (Chris Archer & Mikkey Vago) def. Kaden Garrick & Mr P (c) by Pinfall

Kicking things off was a Tag Team Championships match as Kaden Garrick and Mr P put their titles up for grabs against The Rejected, who were still in their first year as a team. Kaden and P stormed the ring after coming through the curtain, with Garrick still angry about his injured eye, an injury he suffered in a match with Chris Archer the week prior in Huntly. Kaden dove to the outside to take out both Archer and Vago, with Mr P following up with a huge dive off the top. Back in the ring and the challengers isolated Mr P in their half of the ring, where Archer came off the top rope with a perfect moonsault. After finally making the tag to Kaden Garrick, the youngster came into the ring bursting with energy and quickly gained the advantage for his team. After Chris Archer leapfrogged over him to avoid a Spear, Kaden knocked The Outcast off his feet before body slamming Mr P on top for a near fall. Kaden followed with a powerbomb to Archer, before Mr P flew down with a splash. But with referee Mikey Innes distracted trying to remove Garrick from the ring, Mikkey Vago snuck in from behind and clocked Mr P in the back of the head with The Rejected’s signature steel chain that allowed Archer to pick up the win to become the new Tag Team Champions.

Before the next match, management representative Chris McDonald introduced the evening’s special guest commissioner and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley make his way to the ring to a standing ovation. As he was speaking about the show, he was interrupted by the entirety of Sterling Oil. Richard R. Russell said that Alan Sterling was deserving of a one on one title shot as opposed to a four way main event. Russell told Foley that he was able to change the match. Foley said that he could change the match, but he wouldn’t. Furthermore, he barred Damien and William Sterling from ringside and made himself the timekeeper for the match.

Shawn Johnson def. Lord Mr Malice w/Jeeves Winchester by Pinfall

Jeeves Winchester made his way to the ring before the next with a trolley of fish guts and a fish cake. If there’s anything I remember from being at the show, it’s that this stunk the place out. Johnson took the early lead with a springboard back elbow but a Jeeves distraction from ringside allowed The Greatest of All the Malices to take control. Heading to the top rope wasn’t the best move for Malice though, as Johnson scooped him off with a military press slam before climbing up top himself. After kicking Jeeves off as he attempted to interfere, Johnson dove off with a double foot stomp for the three count. After the match, he covered both Malice and Winchester and Malice in fish guts. Feel sorry for anyone that head to sit next to that trolley during the match…

Christmas Brawl
William Sterling def. Blue Thunder by Pinfall

The first half ended with the annual Christmas Brawl, as former Thunder Buddies partners William Sterling and Blue Thunder squared off. With Sterling stalling about at ringside, Thunder came through the ropes with a suicide dive before several weapons were introduced, including some kendo sticks, steel chairs and a child’s sled, which William used to perform an elbow drop off the ring apron. Back in the ring, Thunder drove Sterling through two steel chairs with a Samoan drop for a near fall. A table was brought in not long after, with the Sterling Oil member hip tossing his former friend through it, only after sending him head first into a steel chair placed in the turnbuckles. After Thunder kicked out, William began assembling a pile of weapons in the middle of the ring and dropped him on top with a Michinoku driver for the win. Thunder stumbled to the back after the match, feeling the effects of the brutal match.

Former Champions Showcase Triple Threat #1 Contenders Match
Damien def. Johnny Lions and Bryan Tucker by Pinfall

Back from the interval and we had a Triple Threat Match to determine a new #1 contender to the Undisputed Championship as three former champions collided with Damien, Johnny Lions and Bryan Tucker facing off. Before the match, Damien reminded Lions of his offer to join Sterling Oil. The Revolutionary allowed Lions and Tucker to start the match, coming back in after pinfall attempts were made. Damien and Lions used some of their old tag team moves from their time in Revolution to down Bryan, with Damien coming off the top rope with an elbow drop. Tucker was able to fight back, nailing a leaping neckbreaker on the Sterling Oil member. After exchanging counters to each other’s finishers, The Tenacious One dropped Tucker with a pop-up Lion Cutter but Damien tossed Lions from the ring and took the pin for himself to earn a title shot at January’s Summerhill Showdown. Damien tossed Johnny a Sterling Oil hoodie after, with Lions still not sure on whether to join them or not.

Intergender Match
Lewis Girvan & Debbie Sharpe def. Aspen Faith & Sammii Jayne by Submission

This. Was. Great. The penultimate match of the night saw Lewis Girvan and Debbie Sharpe taking on The King and Queen of Catch in the form of Aspen Faith and Sammii Jayne in an Intergender Match. Faith and Girvan had a nice technical exchange to kick things off, before the women were tagged in. Sammii and Debbie have such good chemistry with one another from their numerous times in the ring together, which was evident as the match progressed. Late in the match, Lewis and Debbie planted Aspen with a wheelbarrow Codebreaker before Aspen and Sammii were able to execute stereo bridging German suplexes for a two count. Sammii dove on to Debbie on the outside, leaving Girvan and Faith in the ring. After having his fingers snapped, Girvan locked Aspen in his Peacemaker crossface, forcing The King of Catch to submit. Fantastic match. This was just the beginning of Aspen and Lewis’ time against each other in WrestleZone.

Fatal Four Way Match for the Undisputed WrestleZone Championship
Special Guest Timekeeper – Mick Foley
Sterling Oil (Damien and William Sterling) are barred from ringside
Scotty Swift (c) def. Crusher Craib, Bingo Ballance and Alan Sterling w/Richard R. Russell by Pinfall

Main event time, as Scotty Swift defended his Undisputed Championship against Crusher Craib, Bingo Ballance and Alan Sterling with Mick Foley as the guest timekeeper. Early in the match, Scotty dove on to both Crusher and Alan at ringside, before Bingo flew on to all three opponents with a huge suicide dive over the top rope. Later on, The Creator of Carnage crushed Alan in the corner with a cannonball senton, before catching The Zenith of Zero-G mid-air with a devastating Black Hole Slam. Alan came back into it later on, planting both Crusher and Scotty with seperate DDT’s for two near falls. On the outside, Bingo performed a diving cannonball on Crusher that caused an injury to his knee, taking him out of the match as he was helped backstage by Mick Foley and Chris McDonald. Back in the ring, Swift connected with a Granite City Driver to Sterling for a two count. A second one was enough for the win however, as The Red Haired Warrior continued his reign. As soon as the bell rang, Damien and William Sterling ambushed Swift until he was saved by The Granite City Hotshots. But it wasn’t to be as Shawn Johnson clotheslined Bryan Tucker out of nowhere, revealing himself as Sterling Oil’s newest member. Swift and Tucker were saved by Kaden Garrick, Mr P and Mick Foley, who put both Richard R. Russell and William Sterling in the Mandible Claw to huge ovations. Santa Claus emerged from backstage to hand out presents to fans as the show came to an end.

The DVD can be purchased from any WrestleZone event or from their online shop, priced at just £8.
