November to Dismember.


Saturday 11/14/15 UPW had our November show fittingly called “November to Dismember.”

Memorable matches:

“Tigerslayer 08 defeated The HomeWreckers and UPW Tag Team Champions The Rochester Wrecking Crew in a triple threat match to become new champions.”

Okay I’m so happy that my boys finally have some gold. Huge congratulations to Phil and Krist. Great match with a very happy ending.

And “‘The Amazing Canadian’ Lionel Knight defeated Space Monkey”

Great match by both men. Very fun to watch. Space Monkey is a trip and I’m glad he keeps coming back.

All in all it was a great fun show and had a lot of excitement and we are praying that Mattick has a good and speedy recovery.
