Without A Cause
Daddy’s Home Review
November 30, 2019
Everett Washington

In Everett Washington at 2:00 p.m. in the afternoon, Without A Cause kicked off the festivities of the day. A departure from their normal day and time, the folks at Without A Cause moved the event to accommodate fans who wanted to attend both this fantastic event and Wrestle Summit happening a few miles south on I-5.

The energy was high even though it was bitter cold outside. Fans descended on the VFW Hall! There was excitement in the air. People were excited to see their favorite professional wrestlers come together and put on a spectacular show… and that is exactly what they got!

Match #1
Tag Team
Young Muscle (Jaiden & Nick Wayne) vs. Logan Stunt & “Golden Boy” Travis Williams

What a match this turned out to be. Young Muscle did not disappoint. Jaiden spent more time in the air than he did on the mat and Nick Wayne proved that a fourteen-year-old wrestling wonder massacred his opponents every time he got in the ring. This duo is truly something to behold.

However, Logan Stunt showed us you don’t have to be the biggest guy in the ring to deliver devastation upon his opponents. Logan is fast and he managed to pull off some impressive moves at a speed that made him a virtual blur in the ring. Travis Williams demonstrated the cocky arrogance we have come accustomed from the Golden Boy. He didn’t hold back, there were eye pokes and he enjoyed flipping off his fans.

The name of the game in this match was speed. All four of these young men are fast and kept the pace of this competition at a level that was nail biting. In the end Travis Williams ended up on the mat and both Jaiden and Nick moved in and pinned Travis Williams and got the three count!

You Muscle Wins!


Match #2
Singles Competition
Eddie Andrews vs. Daniel Makabe

These two talented men put on quite a display for the crowd at Without A Cause. Eddie Andrews is slightly larger and had a strength advantage over his opponent. He spent a lot of his time delivering devastating blows to his opponent Daniel Makabe. These two put on an impressive technical display. It was a truly glorious thing to watch two such talented and experienced wrestlers engaged in an acrimonious battle for supremacy.

Daniels technical skills helped him perform numerous reversals against Eddie and he managed to get his opponent in several submission holds including the cross-face stretch. Eddie proved himself to be a durable opponent as he managed to pull through every submission attempted Daniel had to throw at him.

This was an intense match and there was no clear person who dominated the field. Both achieved near falls and submission attempts, but they couldn’t manage to put the other away completely until Daniel Makabe managed to get the three count on Eddie Andrews.  

Makabe wins!

Post-match announcement: It was announced on January 19th, Warhorse will be making his way to Everett Washington to face Daniel Makabe!

Match #3
Tag Team, Last Team Standing
4 Minutes of Heat (Ricky Gibson & Eddie Pearl) vs. The Strays (Tyler Elliot & Judas Icarus)

This isn’t the first time these two teams have faced off! With any luck it won’t be the last. 4 Minutes of Heat came out in new gear and they were ready destroy the Strays who have been taunting them over the last month. Ricky Gibson and Eddie Pearl came in strong and they didn’t give the Strays one inch. These two are well coordinated and managed to execute some of their best moves.

Photo / Lady Bell

However, the Strays had an edge of malice and venom. These good boys turned bad and they have developed quite an edge. These two brought their game and it was a relentless display of destruction and mayhem! Tyler Elliot and Judas Icarus have obviously not been receiving treatment for their rabies and this gave them the edge in this match. After reaping destruction on Ricky and Eddie…

The Stray’s win!

Match #4
Championship Match
Jorel Nelson vs. WAC Champion Chris Bey

Jorel Nelson is perhaps one of the most underrated wrestlers on the independent scene today. He proved his metal against WAC Champion Chris Bey by keeping him on defense through most of this match. He executed one brutal move after another and showed us exactly how talented Jorel really is in the ring.

Chris Bey is not however is not so easily defeated. This guy isn’t the biggest guy in the ring, but he is one of the fastest and he is undoubtedly one of the most cunning. He employed every dirty trick in the book including a dastardly eye poke on Nelson. Chris wasn’t about to surrender his championship belt to anyone! After a series of kicks and brutal attacks, Chris Bey rolled up Jorel and got the three count!

Chris Bey wins!

Following the conclusion of this contentious match Chris Bey issued an open challenge. Anyone who wants to come and face him can bring it on, because he’s ready for anyone!

Match #5
Singles Competition
The Black Sheep, Dave Turner vs. Stroke Daddy, Ricky Starks

Photo / Vitz

Anyone who has seen the Black Sheep, Dave Turner, in the ring knows he is one of the bigger guys in the business. Anyone who is unlucky enough to end up in this living embodiment of nightmares clutches is going to hate life. Sure, enough Ricky Starks got to experience this firsthand. Dave slammed Ricky against the mat so hard you could feel the building shudder!

Ricky went for the top ropes and dived down on the Black Sheep only to be caught and treated to another introduction to the mat in a rather brutal fashion! Ricky managed to get a few good moves in, however the tired turned on the Black Sheep when an interloper entered the auditorium.

Pitfall Jones made an unexpected appearance. He collected the Black Sheep’s mask. “This belongs in a museum!” he called out before disappearing out of the building. Dave Turner was obviously thrown off by this villainous theft. Ricky took advantage, rolled up the Black Sheep and got the three count!

Ricky Starks wins!

While the match against Ricky Starks is now a note in the history of Without A Cause, it seems likely the Black Sheep has unfinished business with Pitfall!

Match #6
8 Person Tag Team Elimination Match
Team Migs: Steve Migs, Rebel Kel, Johnny Flynn & MV Young
Team Cool Dad: Chris Ross, Jet Knight, JaCub Soumis and Liiza Hall

Team Migs and Team Cool Dad were divvied up at the beginning of the show, and now that they have had some time to strategize, they came out ready to win. In this match each opponent is eliminated from the match if they are pinned or they tap out.

This was a fantastic match that collapsed into utter chaos the moment the bell rang! There was a lot of back and forth and these teams brutalized one another. Once the eliminations started this match ended quickly. First Rebel Kel was eliminated, then JaCub Soumis. A minutes later we saw MV Young eliminated and then Liiza Hall. We saw Migs eliminated and then Cool Dad Chris Ross got knocked out of the game. The two remaining wrestlers were Johnny Flynn and Jet Knight! These two squared off and gave the crowd an impressive display of their talents. In the end Jet Knight got the three count on Johnny eliminating him from the match.

Jet Knight is the final man standing!

Team Cool Dad Wins!

Even though the match came to an end there was still unsettled business. Former tag partners Chris Ross and Johnny Flynn apparently have a deep personal grudge. They went at it trying to destroy the other before the ref pulled them apart. These two agreed to settle their differences next month on January 19th 2020 in a match that will undoubtedly be one of the most brutal and personal matches Without A Cause has ever seen!

Match #7
Fatal Four Way
Effy vs. Chase James vs. Drexl vs. Steve West

A former champion, the devil, the reigning monarch of sass and the master of snot rocketry enter a ring… no it really happened! These four incredible performers emerged into a single ring to put on one hell of a spectacle.

Chase James went in as a fierce opponent. He had an ax to grind and ready to deliver that ax directly into Steve West. It isn’t easy to forgive someone for costing you a championship belt. Steve didn’t simply lay down and take it. Along with his nasal missiles he delivered a series of devastating attacks on the men he shared the ring with.

Effy was the wild card, the fly in who came to town wow the audience and make sure we didn’t forget him! He held his own gracefully and kept this match somewhat civilized however this is nearly an impossible accomplishment when the Devil himself Drexl is involved. Once Drexl engaged the stapler came out and at one point there were tacks. It got ugly really fast!

This match was brutal, bloody and vicious. In the end Chase James managed to get his revenge. He moved in on Steve West and got the three count!

Chase James pins Steve West and wins!

Review Without A Cause Year One!

Without A Cause
Year One!
October 27, 2019
Everett Washington

One year… An entire year has gone by! To say we saw significant change from the very first show to the one year anniversary show is an understatement. The very first show was wonderful expose of talent that showed incredible promise. It was a clear indicator that the folks behind Without A Cause knew what they were doing. Fast forward to WAC Year One, and this fantastic promotion has gone from a promising addition to the regions menu of show options to a must see property. It is becoming a destination both for fans and talent. With this much growth in a single year we can only speculate what’s going to happen in this promotions second year!

As for the Year One show, Max Zaleski, Taylor Bartle and their incredible team constructed one of the best cards to date. Here’s a run down of what happened!

Match #1: Six Way
Dave Turner vs. Eddie Osbourne vs. Kingpin Johnny Flynn vs. Zach Cooper vs. “Cool Dad” Chris Ross vs. Chris Cruz

Wow! This was an incredible opening match. Not only where there six talented men in this match but they didn’t hold back… at all! This was an impressive mix of styles. Dave Turner, Eddie Osbourne, Zach Cooper and Chris Ross have a more brutal powerhouse style while Johnny Flynn is more technical, and Chris Cruz is a spectacular high flyer.

The moment the bell rang there was a lot of posturing. It appeared as though each one of them was waiting for someone to make the first move. Then Johnny Flynn started shoving his opponent around and then this match broke out into utter chaos!

Chris Cruz performs a hurricanrana on Eddie Osbourne while Zach Cooper got a double drop kick on Chris Ross. Dave Turner then picks up Mr. Cooper and throws him out of the ring where Zach crashed through a door and lay motionless for the remainder of the match.

The black sheep then went after Kingpin Flynn and Chris Cruz in a slamwich! There was a lot of back and forth. In the end Dave turner gets the pin on Eddie Osbourne!

Dave Turner wins!

Match #2: Six Man Tag Team Match
Steve Migs and the Voros Twins vs. Jet Knight and Young Muscle (Jaiden & Nick Wayne)

To this day, at the one-year show, the audience at Without A Cause continues to fail in appreciating Steve Migs! One day folks… one day. This time, Migs didn’t come alone. He brought the Voros twins with him to take on challenger Jet Knight.

Jet couldn’t possibly show up to a match without his own back up. The incredible and rising team of Young Muscles came to join Mr. Knight. This threesome represents some of the hottest talent making a name for themselves in the region and they have a made an impressive showing here at Without A Cause.

When the bell rang Steve Migs and Jet Knight went up against one another. Steve managed to dodge a couple of Jet’s clotheslines only to be captured by the talented Mr. Knight who proceeded to give Migs a good old fashioned noogie! Then slams Migs.

Jaiden taps in and kicks a Voros! But this Voros wasn’t going to take that without retaliation and gave Jaiden a brutal chop. Nick Wayne moved in and performed a hurricanrana on the offending Voros brother.

Migs moves in and claims his opponents are too young to be in the ring. Nick responds with a kick to Migs’ face! After a few moments of mayhem, one of the Voros twins moves in and punches Jaiden and Migs slams Jaiden. The Voros then pull Jaiden into the corner when they work him over. Then one Voros gets Jaiden into a Surfboard while the other rains down from the top rope devastating Jaiden.

Migs and his partners kept Jaiden in the corner denying him the opportunity to tap one of his partners in. They executed a series of brutal attacks before Migs slams Jaiden onto the mat, goes in for the cover and gets a two count.

Jaiden rallies and gets a double head slam on the Voros twins and manages to tap Jet Knight in. Without hesitation Jet goes in for the kill, he chops Migs and slams him against the mat. He then turned his attention to the Voros twins. Jet destroys them, goes in for the pin, only to have Migs leap into the ring and break the cover.

The Voros gang up on Jet Knight and beat him down before going in for the cover only to get a two count. Then Jaiden and Nick Wayne fly in wipe out the Voros twins. Steve Migs moves in and crashes Jaiden and Nick’s heads together.

Jet moves in, devastates Migs and manages to take down one of the Voros twins. Jet goes for the cover and gets the three count!

Jet Knight and Young Muscle Win!


Match #3: Triple Threat
Steve West vs. Chase James vs. Drexl

This was a match in the making for a while now. A few months ago, Chase James was the celebrated champion of Without A Cause. He represented the promotion with grace and dignity. Then there was a four-way championship match during which Steve West kept Chase James busy while Chris Bey got a three count on Jordy Taylor. Needless to say, it is a bitter pill to lose your championship belt to an opponent who didn’t pin you, but that is how it went for Mr. James.

But Chase wasn’t the only contestant in this rumble with a beef to grind. Drexl had his own grievances to levy at the feet of Mr. James. They had faced off recently in a death match during which Chase James bludgeoned the devil with a chair and ever since this demonic grappler has been a bit confused about who he has become. Apparently tie-dye and Grateful Dead music doesn’t sit well with the Devil Drexl but somehow his head injury has created some confusion about his true identify.

When this match began, we heard Drexl lament about his mental deterioration into a dead head. This prompted both Chase James and Steve West to join forces and quickly take Drexl out. As the devil lay on the mat Chase didn’t waste a moment of time! He moved in and kneed Steve West in the face and starts working Wests arm.

This match was a fantastic display of wrestling talent. West shot his snot rockets, while Chase demonstrated his technical skills. Drexl changed personalities with every blow, switching between the peace loving, tie-dye wearing dead head and the fiendish devil. This was a highly entertaining match to watch. There was never a dull moment between these three. As Chase James and Steve West duked it out in the ring, Drexl was the wild card who insinuated himself in the match in the most comedic ways.

After an intense and hilarious match, we saw it come down to Steve West and Chase James. These two fought a contentious war. Just when you thought Mr. James would get his revenge, we saw West turn the tables and get the three count.

Steve West Wins!


Match #4: Without A Cause Championship Challenge
Champion Chris Bey vs. Hammerstone

It’s always a pleasure to have Hammerstone in the house. When he comes into the ring, he’s there to tear his opponent’s body apart limb by limb. One need only look at the “Beef Castle” to see, he’s more than capable of ripping a limb off anyone who dare cross him. It is fair to say there is a decent number of people at Without A Cause who would like to see Hammerstone do this very thing to their Champion Chris Bey. However, Mr. Bey isn’t without his fans among the audience.

When the bell rings Chris fly’s out of his corner and begins attacking his opponent with a flurry of strikes. After his vicious attack Hammerstone appeared completely unphased. He then proceeded to pick up Chris Bey and slam him against the mat, twice. The tenacity of Bey was evident by him bouncing back and getting Hammerstone in a head lock.

Hammerstone choked Bey on the ropes, threw him around like he was a sack of flour and brutalized the Champion. At one-point Bey attempted to flee the ring but Hammerstone wasn’t having it. Instead the challenger got a hold of Bey and began punching Bey in the face as the audience counted the strikes to ten.

Bey got a reversal and kneed Hammerstone in the face and quickly moved into the ring as his opponent remained dazed. The referee began the count out. It looked as though Hammerstone was going to lose by count out. “Eight,” Referee Jamie Smiles called out. Still Hammerstone lay motionless on the ground. It seemed as though world and time fell away as the audience watched closely to see if life would return to the “Beef Castle.” Jamie called out “Nine!” Hammerstone managed to leap into the ring before our fabulous referee came to the count of ten.

Things only got even uglier from there. Hammerstone devastated Chris Bey with one brutal attack after another. Bey wasn’t completely down. The Champion was able to get in more than a few strategic strikes.

After a brutal contest Bey climbed to the top of the ropes. He leapt down only to be caught in the clutches of Hammerstone who proceeded to slam Bey against the mat. Chris shook his head slightly dazed by his body making impact with the mat with such velocity you could feel the shock wave move through the room. The champion then turned and landed a cheap shot right to the “Beef Castles” family jewels! Hammerstone buckled over and Chris Bey took the opportunity to roll up his opponent and got the three count.

Chris Bey wins and retains!

Chris Bey’s victor was short lived, however. As Hammerstone recovered from the excruciating pain of both his testicular trauma and the sting of his loss, he began to stand. Chris Bey decided it was time to cut his victory celebration short and retreated into the locker room.


Match #5: Singles Competition
Tony Deppen vs. Daniel Makabe

When Tony Deppen came out into the ring the audience roared with pride. His debut has been one of the most highly anticipated events since the announcement was made last month. To see such a beloved fly in enter the ring was particularly fantastic. He came to face someone he’s shared the ring with before; one of our local favorites, Daniel Makabe!

When the bell rang these two amazing wrestlers locked up and we saw some of the most impressive mat work of the show. Tony quickly gets the upper hand and begins working Daniels ankle before getting him in a figure four leg twist. It was a brutal hold and it looked as if this was going to be a brief match.

After escaping the hold Daniel Makabe gets a reversal and gets Tony in a hammer lock. Tony demonstrated incredible technical skill by getting a reversal with a back-slide pin on Makabe for a one count. You could see the hunger and drive in these men’s eyes.

There were punches and strikes, some amazing foot work and the technical display between these two was worthy of the top performances we’ve seen at Without A Cause or any other promotion for that matter.

There were multiple two counts on one another. Makabe executed his Octopus stretch and Deppen managed to reach the ropes. Tony head butts Makabe sending him reeling in pain. There were stomps, dive bombs and cross face stretches. It was anyone’s match. Neither opponent could hold the initiative for long before the other executed a reversal.

These two struggled on the mat and then Makabe locked in on one of Tony’s arms, and then the other. A slight twist of the body and Makabe executed a Double Chicken Wing Pin and gets the three count!

Makabe wins!


Match #6: Singles Competition
“Dirty” Andy Dalton vs. “Golden Boy” Travis Williams

As “Golden Boy” Travis Williams entered the auditorium the audience began chanting “Justin Bieber!” While he wasn’t particularly fond of the comparison, being the consummate professional he is, he ignored them and prepared to face his opponent.

“Dirty” Andy Dalton was ready to destroy his pretty boy opponent. It was clear he planned to toy with his opponent like a cat toying with their prey. The bell rang and Andy lunges towards his opponent ready to start the beat down, however, Travis had other plans. Instead Travis Williams fled the ring and out of Andy’s grip. Dalton wasn’t about to let his opponent escape and went after him. Travis quickly fled back into the ring. As Andy Dalton reentered the ring Travis attempted an opportunistic elbow drop. Andy managed to dodge, and Travis’ elbow made contact with the mat. The Golden Boy wasn’t feeling so golden at that moment.

Our out of town guest, Andy went after Travis with a vengeance. At one-point Mr. Dalton is outside the ring and Travis Williams dives out. The two crashed threw three rows of chairs. Andy spit clawed and struck Travis. The vitriol between these two was tangible.

Andy got a hold of Travis and slapped him repeatedly. Travis then pushes Andy out of the ring and Travis gives chase. They brutalize one another and lay motionless on the ground. The ref reaches the count of seven before they get back in ring.

Travis goes in for a pin but uses the rope and the ref stops the count. Andy performs a reversal. He goes for the cover and uses the ropes for leverage. The ref doesn’t see Andy’s tactic and counts to three.

Andy Dalton Wins!


Match #7: Singles Competition
Riea Von Slasher vs. Christina Von Erie

When Jessicka Havok was unable to attend we were treated to a spectacular replacement, talent hailing from the north, Christina Von Erie! This is more than a suitable replacement for Havok and a worthy opponent for Riea Von Salsher who has been making an impressive showing in this region at promotions such as DEFY and Vancouver Island Professional Wrestling.

When the bell rang Von Erie slaps Von Slasher across the face and immediately goes for the hair. You can tell already this is going to get ugly! Christina went for the jugular, almost literally, and delivered a devastating head butt. She pushes Riea into the corner and delivers a series of chops and strikes.

Riea manages a reversal, trips Von Erie and slams her in the corner. Christina wasn’t going to take that lightly and clotheslines Riea before kneeing her in the face. Von Erie went after Riea performing a series of brutal strikes on Riea as she lay on the mat.

These two didn’t hold back in the least. Riea managed to twist Von Erie into a pretzel and in an impressive display of endurance Christina managed to pull herself out. Christina then throws Riea into the turnbuckle. She crumbled to the mat and Von Erie moved in for the cover only to get a two count. Christina frustrated she didn’t put her opponent away managed to get Riea into a figure four hold, however Von Slasher made it to the ropes breaking the hold. These two exchanged strikes as they grew desperate to beat their opponent into submission.

Riea throws Christina across the ring and these two climb to the top rope. They exchange strikes and you could see these two wrestlers were battle weary. Christina went down. Riea jumped down and performed a devastating spine buster. She moves in for the cover only for Christina to get her shoulder up. Riea climbed to the top rope and dived down from above. She goes in for the cover again and gets the three count!

Riea Von Slasher wins!


Match #8: Best 2 out of 3 falls
The Strays (Judas Icarus & Tyler Elliot) vs. 4 Minutes of Heat (Ricky Gibson & Eddie Pearl)

Few matches were more contentious than this one at WAC Year One. These two terrific teams have faced off before, with 4 Minutes of Heat taking the win, despite being exposed to toxic foot fungus. This is a rematch between the two top tag teams at Without A Cause and there wasn’t any question neither team wanted to win, they wanted to destroy their opponents.

The moment the bell rang, the Strays, Judas Icarus and Tyler Elliot went after Eddie Pearl and Ricky Gibson with prejudice! They moved in and began pummeling 4 Minutes of Heat with a flurry of blows. 4 Minutes of Heat get a reversal and after landing a devastating slam on Judas Icarus Eddie Pearl gets a three count! This is the first of three falls and only after approximately two minutes… It would appear 4 Minutes of Heat has issues with delayed gratification!

Tyler Elliot moves in and locks up with Eddie Pearl. Ricky Gibson sneaks in and gets his hands on the Stray. Ricky executes an ugly slam. Tyler recovers quickly and throws Ricky Gibson out of the ring. Tyler then returns his attention to Eddie Pearl. After laying on the hurt, Tyler rolls Eddie up and gets the three count! The second of three falls goes to the Strays!

In a fit of fury Eddie Pearl get his hands-on Tyler Elliot and performed a back breaker over his knee. Then Ricky moved in and got a choke hold on Tyler. After escaping from the choke hold Tyler was treated to a double drop kick from Gibson. Tyler pulled double duty against 4 Minutes of Heat as Judas Icarus is reeling on the floor in pain.

As Judas recovered, he was able to rally and flew into the ring and utter mayhem broke out. As Eddie and Tyler lay devastated in their respective corners both Judas Icarus and Ricky Gibson climbed to the top rope on opposite corners of the ring. Then in an act of incredible athleticism and skill, these two men launched themselves from the top rope towards one another, their bodies colliding and crumbling to the mat.

Then in a stunning coordinated act, the Strays kick Ricky Gibson and then Eddie Pearl out of the ring. The battle continued in the audience. At one-point Tyler Elliot found some duct tape and taped Eddie Pearls hand to the turn buckle, before beating him severely.

Seeing his tag partner incapacitated, Ricky Gibson went bezerk and decimated the Strays. However, these dumpster diving scamps weren’t about to go down. With the referee distracted Tyler Elliot got his hands on a chair and beat Ricky severely. After Ricky is laying on the cusp of unconsciousness Tyler moved in for the cover and the three count.

The Strays Win!

Despite the Stray’s win, the audience wasn’t terribly pleased with the less than… honorable tactics employed by Tyler Elliot and Judas Icarus. What honor code did they expect from feral children all sugared up from living in a dumpster behind Tim Hortons?


That’s a wrap for the Year One show! On November 30th we have Without A Cause Daddy’s Home! Let the good times keep coming! With a card that includes every one’s daddy, Effy, you know you aren’t going to want to miss this one!
