World Pacific Championship Wrestling just put on a series of tours involving local wrestlers, legends, and some current stars. This card took place at my old high school in Ewa Beach.
AJ Styles, Buff Bagwell, Ekmo, Samu, AJ Styles, Prince Iaukea, Superfly Jimmy Snuka, Perry Saturn, Sabu and Bryan Adams were some of the note-worthy performers. The Rock Don Murracco appeared with Bagwell and Styles.
Bret Hart also made an appearance and gave a short interview. He didn't comfirm whether or not he would attend Wrestlemania XX, but he was glad to be amongst a handful of grateful fans.
I had a great time. I was able to step into the ring and take a picture with Perry Saturn, Shake Hands with Bret Hart, meet his nephew Teddy Hart (he has a promising future and pulled off an amazing corkscrew diving senton bomb), and talk with Buff Bagwell.
Everyone was very hospitable; Buff is a great guy and he worked the crowd well, AJ put on a great match although Prince Iaukea blew a few of his spots, the local wrestlers put on some decent hardcore matches, and the Saturn/Sabu hardcore match was amazing... Sabu made the pinfall after 2 triple jump in-ring asai moonsaults with 1 second left in the match.
Anyhows, here are some of the photos.
Teddy Hart and I.
Buff and my kid brother.
Ekmo (Jamal)... he gave me a big sweaty hug after his match... that was kinda unexpected.
being from hawaii myself, i have to say that i am totally jealous. sounds like a great show, especially with the noteworthy names out there. i think it's great to see all of them out there. thanks for the pics! :D
it says so right here in the wcw handbook!
what does it take to get a higher ranking around here? i already know what it takes to get a lower one! :-P
I'm surprised WWE even makes mention of XPW, honestly. I was there that night and even heard "White Trash" Johnny Webb tell members of the XPW street team to make sure not to get involved with whatever happens.
