Ok, so I’m heading to Ted Reeves Arena in Toronto for Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore 9 – his first event in Canada! This is also my first attempt at live blogging without a plugin – just using the blog itself through the browser.
On the train to Toronto (Danforth Station). It’s only supposed to be a 4 minute walk to Ted Reeve Arena from there. I just managed to catch this bus – the doors has even been closed once. Fortunately, there is a new credit card kiosk to pay from the back parking lot – that helped a lot.
Just got myself a coffee (the train let me out right at the backdoor of the arena).Waiting now to go in…
This is the most rediculous thing ever. We were all in a very organized line and then they said “All VIP in a line over here”. From there, everyone piled together in a giant blob. Dumb!
I’m a little behind with this update. Sitting at my seat – 4th row – and chatting with the dude beside me.
Time for some updates:
The Dudley Boys
The Addiction: Christopher Daniels (top) and Frankie Kazarian (bottom)
Tommy opens the show versus Chris Hero
Tommy at the receiving end of some hard shots in the corner
Tommy’s not too impressed with the interruption of Cherry Bomb and Pepper
Cherry Bomb doesn’t appreciate an “Old Guy” like him spoiling her ring
Bobby Roode makes a surprise appearance to face Pepper
Cherry Bomb can’t seem to shut her mouth during this match
Bobby Roode Victorious
John Hennigan (Morrison) Hits the Ring (Sans Slo-Mo)
It was awesome to see John Morrison back in the ring (but I do miss the slow motion entrance 😜) This match was quite awesome (and quite long) – a good contest. Morrison (I can’t call him Hennigan) won his finishing move, the “Starship Pain)
Maria Kanellis accompanies “The Kingdom” to the ring to face “The Addiction”, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian
Matt Taven of the “Kingdom” initiates a flying splash on “The Fallen Angel”
Maria got involved near the end of the match and Traci Brooks came to the aid of her husband, Kaz, and Daniels. “The Addiction” stands victorious and celebrate Traci’s last appearance post match.
REWIND – This is where the intermission occurred
Rhyno issues an open challenge which is met by Thea Trinidad for her man, a super surprise addition to the show, Austin Ares!
Drop Kick on Rhyno
