Live from Phoenix ...

Elite Xtreme Wrestling presents Xtreme Measures

We do indeed have an indy fed here in Phoenix. While they usually have their every-other-Tuesday shows at "Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill" out in Mesa (eeesh), this Memorial Day weekend they had a show at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix.

We all know I'm not a recapper, & hopefully there'll be some video &/or recap happiness showing up online. (They were video recording the show, & there were some guys recording commentary, so I'm guessing it's just going to take them some time to get the video together.)

The short version: This was really fun, & much better quality than I'd expected it to be!! Johnny Stamboli is apparently a regular & had 2 matches (one as himself & one as Rellik.) Bill DeMott was the Guest Commissioner. And the ME ended up being Val Venis, Derick Neikirk & the former A-Train vs. the local heel contingent of The Freak Squad.

A-Train is now working under the name Giant Bernard ?? OK. Well, he.s the new EXW tag team champion (, self-proclaimed. :-)

(Oddly, Tommy Dreamer had been advertised for this, but seemingly bailed several days ahead. Hence the surprise appearance by A-Train. And now I see a report ( that Tommy wasn't at Impact taping. Although his twitter ( looks quite benign.)

He's been using the Giant Bernard name since going to Japan in 2005. Apparently they decided that he looked similar to Brute Bernard, a wrestler in the '60s and '70s.

But using it here in the US must mean that he thinks that that name is more over than using some indified version of "A-Train" or "Prince Albert" or whatever.

The only thing I'd adjust about fuel's statement is that even though Thursday's rate card is the highest, that doesn't mean WWE will get you a great buy. WSBK usually runs 50% promo theatre most of the time in their local avails.
