Barry Goode is Slams champ again

Courtenay wrestler prevails at Slams for Sebastien 2 fundraiser for YANA

 

The ring was rocking Nov. 9 at the K’omox Band Hall as a gritty group of grapplers gathered for Slams for Sebastian 2, a pro wrestling fundraiser for Comox Valley charity YANA (You Are Not Alone).

Organizers are still tallying the final figure of monies raised, and thank everybody who helped out. “A huge thank you to my better half, Ashley Shea, who ran the event, with me (wrestling on the card) and Keith (Spinks) being in Fort MacMurray,” said Barry Welsh. “My mom Sandra Welsh came all the way from Pemberton to help out,” Welsh added.

In preliminary round action, Lak Siddartha beat Krofton. Krofton threw everything  but the kitchen sink at the Prince of Power, including an over-the-top-rope somersault, but in the end, as with most opponents, Lak put him down with the F5.

The Vancouver Island title match did not materialize as champion B.J. Laredo produced a letter from VIPW commissioner Mike Democrat stating the match was unsanctioned and thus would be a non-title tilt. Ravenous Randy Myers took it all in stride and pinned the reigning champ 1-2-3.

Fan favourite Cremator Von Slasher engaged El Phantasmo in a wildly entertaining contest where the big man was felled by El Phantasmo – with some assistance from Lak Siddartha.

After the match both Siddartha and El Phantasmo attacked Cremator, until he was saved by Ravenous Randy. Slams commissioner Tim Chaisson made a match for the next time wrestling is in the Comox Valley which will pit Cremator and Ravenous Randy against El Phantasmo and Siddartha.

The women’s match featured Riea Von Slasher and KC Spinelli. These two ladies know each other in the ring so well that all it takes is a brief slip up by one of them for the other to capitalize. Riea Von Slasher was victorious this time, but it is clear that things are not even close to being over between these two.

The action heated up when Comox Valley’s Barry Goode and Campbell River’s Mike Becherer entered the ring with their manager Amanda (Sebastian’s mother) for their tag team match with Scotty Mac and Andy The Dreadful Bird.

With an apparent injury to his original tag-team parter Jamie Diaz, Scotty Mac chose a worthy replacement. After over 20 minutes of hard-fought action, Scotty Mac was attempting to put Goode down for good with his patented Super Kick. However Scotty’s womanizing ways cost him, as for a brief second he turned his attention to Amanda for a kiss…all he received was a slap in the face, allowing Goode to make the hot tag to Becherer. Becherer cleaned house, eventually pinning Andy the Dreadful Bird cleanly in the middle of the ring.

The Slams For Sebastian 2 Over the Top Rope Battle Royal did not disappoint. The end came when Scotty Mac had Goode on the mat and was holding him for a high-flying finishing move from Andy the Bird.

Goode quickly fought back, eliminating the Bird. After some jockeying back and forth, Goode missed a top-rope manouevre. Scotty Mac had him set one more time for a Super Kick, which Goode ducked and then eliminated Scotty with a clothesline to become a two-time Slams for Sebastian Battle Royal Champion.

After the match Scotty and The Bird attempted a bit of retribution, but thankfully Becherer was there to save his partner.

QUICK PINS The card was held in memory of Sebastian Cobban, who passed away due to a rare disease just shy of his 11-month birthday …  the date for Slams for Sebastian 3 will be announced on Facebook …
