OBLIVION! Was Incredible!

Thank you to everyone who helped make OBLIVION! one of the best wrestling shows I've ever been a part of. The night was absolute magic. If you weren't there, be sure to pick up the DVD as soon as it becomes available.

A few words of thanks...

Dave Wyldstar and GCW - we couldn't have done this without you. Thank you for your support in spite of this being the most difficult of times. Dave's wife was involved in a serious car accident, just two days before OBLIVION! She endured many hours of surgery and will be in hospital for 6-8 weeks. Despite that, Dave split his time between hospital room and venue and made sure we had everything we needed.

Page and Jian Magen and everyone at Magen Boys Entertainment and at The Factory - you guys really stepped up. Thank you for provided us with such a classy facility and taking care of the boys.

Emanuel Melo, owner of OntarioIndyWrestling.com - you're a class act bud. You deserved a night of thanks. Your humble nature and unwillingness to ever ask for any form of compensation explains why you are so loved by the boys.

My bro Dan-e-o .... you showed everyone last night just how talented you are. Dude rocked every freakin' track, dropped a sick freestyle on Lance Malibu when his ass got punked, killed it on the bongos for Kamala's entrance and took total responsibility for the entire band. They all knew their cues, and they hit every single one. That's not easy to do in a broadway show with months of rehearsals, never mind at a wrestling event

To T.J. .... OBLIVION! Tha Indy Wrestling Album and O Show Radio would never have been possible without you. I'd tell you I love you or something but you're such a fag, you'll probably want to make out. Your energy last night was infectious. Thank you.

To the rest of the performers ... all the guys in Secret Suburbia (Mark, Rob & Dave) plus Summer Brockwell and Lyrical Chemist: you guys did your thing. You guys are the best.

To all the men and women who wrestled, thank you for working so hard and keeping the spirit of the night in mind.

Tyson and Dangerboy - that was awesome. 2009 has already had it's match of the year.

Dennis, I love you like family. I know you wouldn't have come of out retirement and done this for just anyone. I'm truly honoured to be counted amongst your friends, and the people you are willing to break your back for. I hope the injuries you sustained last night are not long term, so you can spend as much quality time as possible with your gorgeous fiancee and beautiful daughter.

Notorious T.I.D. you're a true leader and you make for a hell of a CD cover. I won't say much cuz I know you won't read this.

Thanks to all the members of the media who were there and for their kind words about the event.

To those members of the OIW family who came out and did not compete ... thank you for your support and your sincere endorsements last night.

And finally, thank you to all the fans.... thank you for making our dream, a night to truly celebrate Ontario Indy Wrestling a reality.

The OBLIVION! Album is available NOW on this website, in case you didn't pick one up last night.

THA O SHOW
ONTARIOINDYWRESTLING.COM
GREAT CANADIAN WRESTLING

"OBLIVION!"

Vaughan
The Factory
Attendance: Packed solid.
Ring Announcer: "The Handsome Genius" Kingdom James
Referees: Sean Cassidy, Dave Linton
Event Hosts: Big Daddy Donnie & Dan-e-o
Music: Secret Suburbia
Results credit: www.owie.ca

This event was a trifecta - the CD release party for Tha O Show's compilation of original theme music for indy wrestlers (a world first)... the presentation of the 2008 Ontario Indy Wrestling Awards from Emanuel Melo and OntarioIndyWrestling.com... a wrestling card presented by GCW which featured the last ever match of Ontario legend "Dangerboy" Derek Wylde.

Numerous familar faces in the crowd as fans from far and wide shared the limited seating with many Ontario wrestlers. Just some of the people there: SLAM!Wrestling's Greg Oliver, PWI senior editor Dan Murphy, Scott D'Amore, Burt The Hurt, The Magen Boys - Page & Jian, Big H, Matt Garrett, Mikey Madrox, Cherry Bomb, Jimmi Hellbent, Warhed, Big Mac & crew, Jamie Virtue, Bryan Renda, Tyler Tirva, RJ City, Shawn Morgan, Mike Rollins, Xtremo, Kris White, Big Daddy Hammer, Jake O'Reilly, Zack Atticus, Cody Deaner, Atlantis & "Old School" Eddington James.

-All OIW Award winners were presented with medals & a framed certificate.
-Secret Suburbia played all the entrance music throughout the night.
-The show opened with hosts Dan-e-o & Big Daddy Donnie & tunes from the band. They were pumped. The crowd was pumped.

1) Rico Montana w/ Inez def Hayden Avery [5 min]
End came when Inez interfered and tripped Hayden while he mounted the top rope. Rico grabbed him and powerbombed him for the pin. (Ref - Dave Linton)

*The first of the OIW Awards.
- OntarioIndyWrestling.com owner & founder Emanuel Melo was introduced to thunderous cheers and a "Thank you Melo" chant.
- Cody Deaner presented the Newcomer of the Year award to "Tricked Out" Tyler Tirva.
-Miss Danyah came out as Melo was going to begin the Woman Wrestler of the Year award presentation and announced that she was going to do it. She wasn't happy to rip open the envelope and discover that Jennifer Blake won.

2) "Girl Dynamite" Jennifer Blake def Miss Danyah [4 min]
Miss Danyah controlled much of the early going (screaming "It's my award" the whole time.) Blake fought back and won by pinfall after a superkick to the chin. (Ref - Sean Cassidy)

*OIW Awards
- Melo announced the nominees for Tag Team of the Year but was interrupted by Percephone Vice before he could announce the winner. Vice was pissed that her tag team - Club Sexxx - wasn't even nominated. Vice introduced HHV who told fans he wasn't able to wrestle but had found a replacement in Josh Alexander. HHV then introduced Sebastian Suave.
- Kingdom James announced that Club Sexxx were NOT the tag team of the year... The Flatliners were the winners. Matt Burns and Asylum rushed into the arena and the fight was on.

3) The Flatliners (Matt Burns & Asylum) def Club Sexxx ("Your Savior" Sebastian Suave & "Just As Sexy" Josh Alexander w/ Percephone Vice & HHV) [6 min]
Six minutes of smashmouth action with lots of high impact maneuvers. The Flatliners won after blasting Alexander with an elevated lift into a powerbomb and then killed Suave for the pin - Asylum lifted Suave up and Burns came off the top with a lungblower. (Ref - Dave Linton)

- The Flatliners received their award medals after the match and while they were still at ringside, Lance Malibu came out to his new theme by Lyrical Chemist. Malibu posed and acted his usual arrogant self then climbed in the ring and demanded an opponent. The Flatliners jumped in the ring and crushed him with Death From Above.

4) "The Ugandan Headhunter" Kamala w/ Kim Chee def "Wrestling Personified" Eddie Osbourne w/ Jessy Jones [1 min]
Osbourne jumped Kamala before the bell but the former WWE star quickly turned the tables. He choked Osbourne in the corner then blasted him with either a head butt or a chop (didn't see it) for the pin which came after Kim Chee managed to tell Kamala to roll Eddie onto his back. (Ref - Dave Linton)

*OIW Awards
- Melo announced Jessy Jones was the winner of the Manager of the Year award but Kim Chee took the medal and certificate and left with them.

-Kamala got on the mic and sang one of his own songs. (A big "That was awesome" chant after this.)

- There was an intermission while the cage was being set up

*OIW Awards
- "Old School" Eddington James presented the Referee of the Year award to Dave Linton
- Scott D'Amore was supposed to present the Promotion of the Year award but he was AWOL. (BSE won. Burt the Hurt was there and could have received the award but he was AWOL too.)
- Greg Oliver presented the Technical Wrestler of the Year to Tyson Dux

5) Cage Match
Special Guest Referee: Ricky Stardust
Notorious TID def Bloody Bill Skullion w/ The Wizard of Wrestling [4 min]
The brawl started outside of the cage and by the time they entered, Skullion was already busted open. Skullion did manage to hit TID with his flaming punch but couldn't get the pin. The wizard tossed in a kendo stick wrapped in barbed-wire but TID was able to get it and nailed Skullion in the nuts before pinning him for the win

-After the match, Skullion went over to the merch table where Warhed was seated. Reports are that Skullion attacked Warhed with a headbutt or punches or both. (Couldn't see)

*OIW Awards
-Melo announced that there were two Match of the Year winners - Eric Young vs "Dangerboy" Derek Wylde and Tyson Dux vs "Dangerboy" Derek Wylde.
-Big Daddy Donnie then called out Derek and announced the first annual "Derek Wylde Award of Excellence" Wylde presented the award (a nice silver cup trophy) to Xtremo
-Big Daddy Hammer presented the Most Improved Wrestler of the Year award to "Midnight Special" RJ City who then sang by popular demand.

6) Main Event:
"Dangerboy" Derek Wylde def "Textbook" Tyson Dux [26 min]
Absolutely fantastic match that had fans chanting "This is awesome" numerous times. Required viewing on the DVD release of this show and a frontrunner for 2009 Match of the Year. Wylde got a standing ovation after the match which was his last ever. (Ref - Dave Linton)

*OIW Awards
-Big Daddy Donnie presented "Dangerboy" Derek Wylde the Wrestler of the Year award. In addition to the medal and certificate, Wylde received a giant gold trophy.

Lots of photographers & media at the show. Keep on the lookout for news of pics, reviews, video clips etc.

Kudos to Tha O Show, Emanuel Melo and GCW for a great show!

Did I make the longest drive to be at Oblivion? Donnie thought I was when we chatted last night. My brother and I came in from Philly and man was it worth it.

Bought 4 copies of Oblivion Tha Album too. Thanks guys! Great show!

Some discussion has been brought up on other boards about how much of a financial success this show was. No doubt was it a success but some people chose to think about the financialities of this show.

I think if you got guys coming from Philly than the show is a success, period. It's usually the canadian fan going to the states for indy wrestling, not the other way around.

Good job boys

Big HUGE shout out to Big Daddy Donnie and my boy T.J. and Secret Suburbia for helping to make this event a reality. And a shout out just as HUGE to GCW, Melo and the Magen twins for helping to make the whole thing such an incredible success.

To all the workers who were involved and MOSTLY to all the fans who came out to support, a million THANK YOUS. To all Tha O-sters who supported from afar, the CD is out, the DVD is coming and we truly appreciate all of the props and respect you guys have shown us that have helped us to reach this point.

Oh yeah, be on the look out for more music from us and my man Lyrical Chemist...dude is dirty y'all!

The best is yet to come! But last night was the "O" of my career in professional wrestling thus far.

Thanks again.

Thank you Dan-e-o and Donnie for the best night I've ever had at a wrestling show. I've listened to the Oblivion album from start to finish about 5 times today...

I'm glad the weather cooperated and that the roads were good. Drove in from London for the show so was watching weather reports. How to put into words what an incredible night it truly was. Live original music, great wrestling card, cozy venue, high emotion, and a sense that maybe this Ontario wrestling thing may be alright. To Tyson and Wylde-wow. Was starting to think front row was going to be standing room only since you used both my and my wife's chairs for spots.
Worth every minute of driving and worth every penny spent. Bought the Oblivion CD and the Derek Wylde DVD set. (Even bought a Flatliners T-shirt).
Nights like this are few and far between, that I may be blessed to see more of these I don't know.
For Wylde-enjoy your retirement and for the love of God enjoy at least SOME rest, okay?
Big H
