Friday, May 4th 2012 was the debut show for FEDERATED Wrestling. Not only was this FEDERATED’s debut show but also the television taping for their first show episodes that will air on www.americanprimetimetv.com this coming June.
This new federation exhibited some great wrestling starring the talent of today and tomorrow. They showcased some of todays talent with former ROH tag team champions The Dark City Fight Club, The Round Eye Samurai Bobby Fish, Pat Buck, Steven Walters and future superstars such as the cocky couple of Joey Ace w/ Lady Diamond Dee, VsK, The Dirty Rotten Scoundrelz and the ever dangerous Jack Gallow.

-Despite all of Joey Ace’s distracting tactics and the interference of Lady Diamond Dee, these two combatants had a great match. Joey Ace showed off his high flying skills as well as how vicious he can be by slamming Gallow into everything and anything outside of the ring not to mention Lady Diamond Dee getting a few shots in herself but Jack Gallow got the best of Joey Ace by locking Ace in a double wrist lock that could have potentially put Ace on the shelf for a while if Gallow didn’t release the hold. Joey Ace was NOT happy with the result of this hard fought match.
The second match of the night was supposed to be a first round match in the TV Title tournament between The Dark City Fight Clubs Jon Davis and The Dirty Rotten Scoundrelz E.C. Negro but Negro’s tag partner K.C. Blade got himself involved in the match after E.C. began to have problems over powering Jon Davis. Luckily the other half of the DCFC Kory Chavis came in to save Jon Davis. Because of the havoc, the match was thrown out eliminating both E.C. Negro and Jon Davis from the TV tourney.
Davis asked the crowd if they wanted a tag match and after the crowds response FEDERATED management had the bell rung and the impromptu tag match began.

-A great back and forth between the two teams. Some dirty double teaming by DRS but the DCFC got control of the match. After E.C. Negro failed to hit Jon Davis with one of the DRS’ Tag Team Champions of the Universe championship belts (Note: these belts are not recognized by FEDERATED) and instead hit his partner K.C. Blade, Jon Davis delivered the 3 Seconds Around the World power bomb on E.C. Negro for the win.
VsK def. Steven Walters via pin fall
-The match started out with a handshake showing respect between the two competitors. Some great back and forth action. The fight did spill out of the ring were Walters started getting more aggressive trying to soften up VsK’s arm. Again after a great move for move battle and after missing the Super kick on a couple of occasions, VsK finally connected with it putting Steven Walters down for the three count.
The Main Event
First round TV Title tournament match
Pat Buck def. Bobby Fish via pin fall
-This was a solid mat based wrestling match. Bobby Fish fired up the crowd the whole match and both showed their extensive mat I.Q.’s. Bobby Fish seemed to have control as the match went on but Pat Buck showed he was just waiting for his spot and rolled up a shocked Bobby Fish for the win.
Final Thought: for an unknown, debuting wrestling fed, FEDERATED Wrestling showed they have the talent to succeed. FEDERATED just needs to make sure that they keep rolling out solid young talent and quality veterans to make their fed work. I had a ton of fun watching the show and I strongly recommend watching FEDERATED Wrestling’s debut show on www.americanprimetimetv.com. This is a solid start for the young federation which I think will be a force to be reckoned with very soon.
