Rougeau promotes indy in St-Hyacinthe


On Wednesday July 22 Jacques Rougeau presented an indy show with some WWF talent at the St-Hyacinthe exposition in Quebec.

-In the first match Carl LeDuc pinned NCW regular in the past year Andy Elisson with a small package. Carl also wrestles for the NCW. Good opening match. Leduc displayed a very good looking frog splash for a man of his size.

-In the second match Tiger Jackson beat Little Broken (he worked for the NCW in the past too) in a midget match after a flying splash from the top. This type of match is "passe" but here in Quebec the crowd ate it up big time.

-In the third match Nelson Veilleux beat Judas with a belly to belly suplex. A few missed spots in there and the chemestry was not there with them.

-In the fourth match The Prisonners (Martin & Serge Rolland) beat Jacques Comptois and Sunny War Cloud when Serge pinned War Cloud with a Vader splash. Okay tag team match, but again nothing special.

A close to 30-minute intermission followed where they sold the Quebecers song and some Rougeau t-shirts left over from Jacques's retirement match.

-In the fifth match Kevin Martel beat Mexico Rythm in the best indy match of the night. Even if they missed a few spots as their effort and match quality made up for it in the eye of the fans.

-In the sixth match Chainz (replacing Steve Blackman) beat Brian Christopher after hitting him with a biker helmet. Very good southern indy match with good mike work followed by really good wrestling after. Chainz had a motorcycle for his ring entrance.

-In the main event The Quebecers (Jacques Rougeau Jr. and Pierre Carl Ouellet) beat the Headbangers when Jacques pinned Thrasher after a legdrop by Pierre from the second rope. Very good match with great heat. Headbangers got in the arena in a "limo" with a three Harley Davidson escort. They also had the American flag to get heel heat. Quebecers had fireworks for their ring entrance. The one in the aisle started late so they were almost in the ring when they blew. They had similar firework as the one used by Kane except only one ringpost worked. After the victory the ceiling fireworks worked perfectly to end the night on a high note.

All and all a fun night !
