The Soviet, Slaughtered
In a scene completely unfamiliar to NAPW’s fans, former World Champion Anton Petrov was on the receiving end of a brutal, relentless five-on-one assault at the hands of the Dynasty.
Petrov was taken to a nearby medical facility in Calgary. However, Petrov disappeared while under observation from the hospital over the night. Heading into Battlebowl, Petrov’s physical condition is unknown, except that he clearly cannot be 100%. Have the Dynasty severed Petrov’s chances at regaining the NAPW title inside the Battlebowl cage… or have they unleashed a new foe they can’t hope to contain?
Murder City Suspension
Call it what it was — Jake Phoenix, injured by a Jay Deschain-swung steel chair, responded with justifiable anger.
Except that Jake Phoenix is no longer an NAPW wrestler. Now the Chief of Security for NAPW, Phoenix crossed all the lines at Dominion when he attacked wrestlers, security, anybody in arm’s length. A post-show encounter with an unfortunate cameraman left Terry Brandon with no choice. Brandon announced that, effective immediately, Jake Phoenix is suspended indefinitely from his position, and is barred from attending Battlebowl.
The Weight of the World
The mysterious reappearance of Atlas has everybody talking. After vanquishing the rat bastard Chris Casino, once and for all, earlier this year, “The Creation” seemed emotionally spent. Atlas, Dr. Frank, and the Cast took a sabbatical, and haven’t been seen in months.
So if indeed it was Atlas in the balcony at Dominion, what has happened to cause such a dramatic change in his appearance and demeanor? Where is “Ze Doctah?” And as Atlas just watched the proceedings, what could he possibly have been thinking?
More questions than answers…
Pride and Heart
Kris Jacobson has made it clear — The Dynasty will not be allowed to run rampant and unchecked over NAPW. At least, not on his watch. The young “Lionheart,” who was denied the World Championship at Flavour Explosion!!! thanks directly to the interference of Declan Black, called out every member of the locker room, and many responded. Jacobson seems to have rallied the troops. Will it be enough?
A Dethroned King
Ever since losing the NAPW title, Clancy King has been on a downward spiral. A new allegiance with Blake Taylor seemed promising, but ultimately led to no meaningful victories. At Dominion King was unceremoniously abandoned by his partners and left to be quickly defeated.
As of this writing, Clancy King has refused any interviews or contact with the media. The Earl of Dokken has declared that King will make a statement when the time so suits him. Rumour has it that this may be the end of the 2376th in line for the Throne of England…
