Thoughts from Nick Madrid:
Whenever I was asked the question of who I wanted to wrestle, I would always give the same answer, Scorpio Sky. Not only have I always been a huge fan of the athlete that he is, but I knew that I wouldn’t be able to take the next step in my career until I wrestled and was able to hold my own against him. I finally got the chance at the first NWA Championship Wrestling From Hollywood non televised event. Sky and I were announced as the Main Event for his TV Title about one month prior to the show and it was not only a dream come true, but all I could think of leading up to the actual match. It doesn’t get any better than Sky. Anyone who has ever seen him wrestle knows this. I’ll admit, I was nervous to be going up against such an excellent competitor, but at the same time was excited for the challenge that wrestling Sky would bring. At the end of the night, I didn’t pick up the win, but I was proud of myself for taking that next step towards my future. Sky would later tweet that I was a champion in his eyes and that I could “go.” Although I couldn’t get the win this time, I am more than happy to settle for a compliment from Sky like that.
Recap from TJ Hawke:
Sky came to the ring with Christian Cole & Big Duke. This match is for the International Television Championship that Sky holds. Rick Knox is the referee!
Sky went for an arm submission early. Madrid escaped, but Sky hit him with a standing somersault splash. They got to their feet, but Madrid took him down with a nifty headscissors. Madrid got a nearfall with a butterfly suplex. Sky seemed to get a Coquina Clutch, but Madrid made the ropes. Sky was in control after that and said, “Who is effing man?” Madrid came back with step-up enzugiri that Sky took a sweet bump for. Madrid hit a dropkick, a Stinger Splash and a leg lariat. Madrid got a nearfall with a running knee. Sky came back with a back suplex for a nearfall. They got to their feet and traded some forearms. Sky went for a springboard move, but Madrid caught him and hit a Finlay roll. Madrid then hit a Superfly splash: 1…2…NO! Good nearfall. SKy then drove Madrid right into Rick Knox, which knocked him out. Madrid avoided Sky’s big Brogue Knee and hit Sky with a Running with the Bulls (swinging DDT). One of Sky’s stablematches came in and gave Madrid a gutwrentch powerbomb. Sky made the cover: 1…2…NO! Sky then hit the Brogue Knee and a TKO: 1…2…3!
The ring announced then said he was informed that due to the questionable tactics of Scorpio Sky, Madrid will receive another TV Title shot on TV.
I enjoyed this match. In terms of conveying personality, Sky seems to be a natural heel, but it’s a shame that his exciting in-ring stuff has to be diminished as a result. I really believe he would be a mainstay of several promotions on the east coast if it didn’t cost so much to fly him out. Madrid’s improvement from year to year is quite evident.
