As Mick wipes the piss off his wang, Bob rushes the stage! BANG! The bullet went through and he is down! We have a new champion! Mick played the game well against a bullet-proof competitor and won! I wonder where that bullet went? Me: Ow. I gotta stop doing renting the room next to the Russian Roulette league. This match had a lot of excellent stunts and slams. The champi…ughhhhh…champions worked hard to sellllllll…uggggghhhhhhhhh…the…knife guys. They…ummmm…ugggghhhh…moved a lot. It was very…goooooooooood. I gotta…gotta take a nap. I’m tired.

Fuego used a drop step to get behind Miro. He tried a chop to Miro’s chest and then followed up with kicks. Fuego pulled down the top rope and Miro went over it to the arena floor. Fuego tried for a pescado but Miro caught him! Miro plucked Fuego out of midair and flung him overhead, backwards, with Fuego crashing hard onto the arena floor!

Miro took Fuego’s car keys and rammed them in Fuego’s throat. Miro locked on the Game Over submission! “The Spanish God” Sammy Guevara ran down to the ring and nailed Miro with a knee strike! Sammy hoisted up Miro’s TNT Championship!

The Verdict: 7 out of 10 – It all looked good and turned out well. Miro got a challenge from Fuego, but Miro was still the dominant brute. Miro looks like a talking tomato can. The action was heavy and brutal. Mother Theresa: It’s very nice to meet you. Me: I know you work in under-developed countries, but I want you to tell me if this looks under-developed. ZIP! MT: AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Me: Goofy broad. Well, there’s not much to report here. Miro dominated Fuego. Darla The Dominatrix: Are you ready for your punishment? Me: I don’t know. Are you ready for this? ZIP! Darla: AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! Me: Goofy broad. I bet she’s the patron saint of rump-rangers. I enjoyed seeing… Kathren Moldoon: You can’t show you’re penis to people without their permission! Tommy Dreamer: Grow up! Me: Why can’t I show them the pecker? KM: You can, but only if they ask or agree willingly! Me: Oh. I never thought of it like that. TD: Don’t listen to her! You were joking! Me: Well, I was, but they weren’t in on the joke. I do feel bad. Miro: Are gonna finish talking about my match? Me: No. TD: I’ll kill you! BANG! Me: I’m glad I had this pistol to shoot that perv with. KM: Oh my God! Murder’s worse! Me: Oh. Well then you’ll hate this. KM: No! Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!! BANG! Me: Oh grow up, assholes. It’s an article. It’s fake. It’s not real. I’m sitting in my bed naked while listening to the best of Bob and Tom while writing this. I made up half the people in this paragraph alone. Anyway, this match was good for Miro and that’s about it.

Final Verdict: 7/10

This was simple and easy all the way. I had a good time here. I wish this is what Dynamite was like. Okay. I’m hungry. I’ll see you next time.
