Ability Tree of Florida paired up with BrawlUSA again for a fun night of charity pro wrestling on Sunday, Aug , 2018. Summer Showdown, held at The Locomo on County Line Road in Spring Hill, was a fun affair that helped raise money for Ability Tree while providing entertainment for the whole family.
A large crowd with many children were able to enjoy the five matches that were held on the card, including two championship matches and the first ever BrawlUSA women’s match.
The first match of the evening saw The Dynasty retaining their tag team championship through underhanded means, evoking a lot of jeers from the crowd as they celebrated their way to the back.
Local wrestler Taino, a Spring Hill native since 2000, was excited to be able to perform in front of a hometown crowd.
“It’s nice always coming home, whenever I get a chance to come and be a part of this, Ability Tree that helps out kids in need, so it’s always a good thing to come home and do stuff like this,” Taino said.
While Taino is able to ply his trade around the state and abroad, wrestling up in Alabama as well as the prestigious WWC in Puerto Rico, he keeps coming back to BrawlUSA due to his connections to owner James Legend.
That relationship is fraying though, as shown through Taino’s actions throughout the night. After commentator Josh Johnson was “awarded” the first ever BrawlUSA social media championship by Director of Fun Pastor Wayne Cordova, Taino confronted the men about being ignored.
“I have been screwed over by the company and management, so it’s time for me to take my place and stop waiting in line, I’m going to take what I want,” Taino said.
Taino’s victory in a fatal-four-way was controversial due to Pastor Cordova being accidentally hit by Sam C, allowing Taino to take advantage of the distraction to get a roll up for the pinfall.
We then got to see the first ever women’s match between Katalina Perez of the Dynasty and Aspyn Rose. These two women put on an exceptional bout, with Perez coming out on top.
Finally Aaron Epic lived up to his name, having a great match with Troy Hollywood. Epic retained his title, walking out again as the best man in BrawlUSA.
BrawlUSA puts on highly entertaining shows for the whole family and people should definitely be ready for a fun time whenever they are in town.
