Storm Warning

H-Flame Big Winner at KPW Storm Warning

KPW’s national debut and TV taping proved fortuitous for H-Flame as he plowed through 3 men to claim the number 1 contender ship and booked himself into the finals of the KPW Heavyweight tournament on July 21st.

H-Flame overcame the massive Max Damage in the quarter finals after sneaking a quick roll up on the behemoth after Jeremiah’s interference backfired. As he rolled on to the semi finals H-Flame was set to meet longtime rival Jonnie Juice. Both men gave it everything they had. Juice was quick to utilize Hollie and Jessie of Team Pretties to distract the referee but even that wasn’t enough as H-Flame was able to nail The Nuke (Code Red) out of nowhere for a 3 count.

H-Flame had now booked himself a spot in the finals against The Ram in a lumberjack match. As the bell rang both men tore into each other with fury. Ram looked to take the early advantage with a series of arm bars and leg locks. The raucous crowd rallied behind H-Flame as Ram threw him to the outside and pulled referee Charlie Roberts across the ring as Jonnie Juice, Max Damage, D Money and Jeremiah tore into H-Flame.

As the fan favorite made his way back into the ring The Ram kept the attack on, grounding H-Flame down. As the crowd willed Flame on he began to mount a comeback, scoring with right hands to send both men down to the mat. As H-Flame struggled to his feet the crowd reached a deafening level of support. The Ram tried to nullify H-Flames passion with a series of rights and lefts but H-Flame was able to nail a huge dropkick out of nowhere.

As The Ram staggered up H-Flame began stalking him and hoisted him up onto his shoulder before running the length of the ring and planting Ram with a huge H-Bomb (pump handle slam) that shook the ring down to its foundations for the final 3 count of the evening. Not long after the final bell all hell broke loose as D Money stormed the ring and laid out Roberts with a huge right hand. Creed could no longer tolerate the man who had been taunting him all night and slid into the ring, taking Money down and pounding away on him. As the rest of the lumberjacks held the 2 men apart KPW CEO Rip Morgan announced a battle royal for the next show on July 7th to determine the number 2 contender to meet H-Flame in the final of the tournament.

Storm Warning also saw the debut of the imposing Jeremiah who made short work of Dr Diablo with an impressive finishing move. D Money also made his intentions for Creed clear as he made sure that Creed knew he would be on an opposite playing level to him.

Storm Warning also saw Butch Miller address the raucous crowd and conduct an exclusive interview with Jonnie Juice and Team Pretties. He made sure that Jonnie knew he would not be pushed around, threatening to fine the known rule breaker if he carried on his ways.

KPW Storm Warning Full Results

The Ram def. Inferno

In the opening match of the number one contender tournament old rivals clashed in a ferocious brawl. Despite Inferno nailing Ram with a huge Afterburner chokeslam Jeremiah made his presence known by pulling Inferno outside the ring. With Jeremiah holding his feet down The Ram nailed the Ramification (Face first suplex) to get the 3 count and advance.

Creed def. D Money

These 2 men left nothing to the imagination as they tore into each other with a series of reversals. After a long back and forth battle Creed was able to lock D Money into a painful Sharpshooter and nearly had the man tapping out but The Ram hit the ring and broke the hold causing a disqualification and putting Creed through.

H-Flame def. Max Damage

H-Flame looked to capitalize early on against Damage by trying to use his superior speed to beat Damage’s sheer power. As Max continued to overpower H-Flame, Jeremiah made his way out to ringside and looked to help Max but wound up hitting Damage in the face allowing H-Flame to get a quick roll up to advance.

Juice def. Buck

The former New Zealand Champion debuted the new look Team Pretties at Storm Warning. With Jessie and Hollie at ringside Jonnie looked to balance the power and height difference with the deviousness of Hollie and Jessie at ringside. As Buck lined Jonnie up for the Red Card (spear) Jonnie was able to pull the top rope down and sent Buck flying to the outside where he was unable to answer the referee’s ten count.

The Ram def. Creed

Creed looked determined as he made his way out to ringside to gain a measure of retribution against the man who assaulted him in the quarter finals. As the match wore on and Ram was unable to get a clean 3 count Jeremiah again made his presence known by distracting Charlie Roberts as Ram blasted Creed with his chain before wrapping it around his fist and playing dead. As Roberts turned round he had to make the call he saw and disqualified Creed despite him being completely innocent in the matter.

H-Flame def. Juice

Longtime rivals squared off once again as both men fought tooth and nail for a place in the final of the tournament. As H-Flame lifted Jonnie up for an H-Bomb, Hollie and Jessie made their presence known on the ring apron as Juice nailed H-Flame with a low blow before attempting the Simply Squeezed (Roll the Dice) only to get caught by H-Flame who nailed his patented Nuke (Code Red) to advance through to the final.

Jeremiah def. Dr Diablo

After having a busy night of interfering Jeremiah finally made his in ring debut, taking on Dr Diablo. The imposing Jeremiah made short work of the Dr, nailing him with a huge spin out gut buster for the 3 count. 

H-Flame def. The Ram

Both men were obviously tired following on from their previous 2 matches in the night. While each of them had back up in their chosen lumberjacks the majority of the match took place in the ring. Both combatants held absolutely nothing back and pushed each other beyond what a normal human being could take. In the end however it was H-Flames patented H-Bomb (Pump handle slam) that would spell the end for The Ram.
