Tow Bars Cape Lightweight Championship
Nick Fury vs. El-Matador vs. Revyv
The first title match of the evening was the much anticipated triple threat match for the Tow Bars Cape Lightweight Championship. Nick Fury and FUBAR Revolution have interfered in the past and cost both El-Matador and Revyv victories. Night of Champions would be the champion’s toughest challenge as he would have no “backup” with the FUBAR thugs barred from ringside. The match started out with the challengers’ collective attack on their common enemy; predictably this camaraderie did not last as all three men put it all on the line for Lightweight gold. A couple of my personal highlights would be: El-Matadors insane flip pile-driver from the second rope, punishing his arch-rival Nick Fury; Revyv’s suicidal 450 flip from the top turnbuckle to the outside; Fury’s massive swinging neck breaker from the top rope on Revyv; and of course that incredible move leading to Revyv’s well deserved win. Revyv’s win makes him the second ever Lightweight Champion in the AWA, but if I was him I would watch my back, FUBAR Revolution are on the prowl and they don’t take loss well.
