This Saturday night will unquestionably be the biggest challenge that Andy Vineberg his group of Winners have faced since the loudmouth motivator has arrived in Adrenaline Championship Wrestling when they face veteran Bobby Starr, quite possibly the most improved wrestler in 2013 in Pat Anthony and 2014 WWE Hall of Fame Inductee Jake "The Snake" Roberts. With all the bad blood between Pat Anthony/Bobby Starr and The Winners over the past month in addition to the unpredictable nature of Jake Roberts, tensions are as high as ever going in to this match-up. The question on everyone's mind is how did we get to this point? Right now, we take a look.
Assemble a team
Since day one that Andy Vineberg arrived, he made his intentions clear. He was going to assemble a team of average wrestlers and turn them in to winners. He first found Rayburn, a newcomer to ACW at the time who was relatively "green." He then recruited Shaun Cannon, another young and hungry competitor who with a little guidance, could be a future star in the making. Needless to say, Vineberg needed to add someone with experience to make his master plan work. He found that person in Louis G Rich, an experienced wrestler who had been overlooked by ACW management in recent years. A situation that did not sit well with the self-proclaimed "Wrestler of the Millennium." Little did anyone know what Louis G Rich's frustration with his situation in ACW would do for The Winners.
Make an immediate Impact
Now that Vineberg had assembled a team, he needed his team to make an immediate impact. An impact that would be felt throughout ACW. The Winners went straight to the top (no pun intended) and immediately called out Chris Evans aka Ghozt tha Demented aka the owner of ACW. For those who dont know, Evans previously wrestled as Christopher Adonis and employed Louis G Rich in his stable known as the Money World Order. This is just speculation, but it is quite ironic that Evans was chosen as The Winners first target considering Louis G Rich's history with Evans and the mWo. Could this have been an act of revenge by Louis G Rich against Evans for protecting him over the years and receiving little to no recognition or title shots in return? We may never know the answer to that. What we do know is that taking out the owner of the company is quite a statement to make upon arriving in a wrestling company.
Within a few months, Evans lost a "Loser leaves ACW" match at Twas the Cage fight before Christmas and was gone from ACW. With the owner gone, The Winners were free to do what ever they pleased. They did just that, by coaxing Pat Anthony and Bob Starr into yet another "Loser leaves ACW" match at the very same event and came out victorious yet again. They would only step it up from there. After the conclusion of the Pretty Ugly vs The Hell Cats Tag Team Championship Cage Match, The Winners arrived proceeded to attack both teams and leave all 4 competitors laying on the ground. Vineberg then publicly announced his intention to go after the ACW Tag Team Championship. Little did Vineberg know, his actions had caught the attention of ACW Commissioner Mike Ratick, who heard about the impromptu match-up with Starr and Anthony while filming interviews for the upcoming King of Maryland event as Starr and Anthony were being escorted from the building.
Commissioner Ratick did not take the news lightly and proceeded to fine Andy Vineberg $5,000. Andy did not seem to care as you can see below.
At the King of Maryland Tournament, it was announced that Pat Anthony and Bob Starr would have a chance to win their jobs back at Chaos in Carroll County II in a 6 man Tag Team match against The Winners. It was also announced that Commissioner Ratick had found Anthony and Starr a tag team partner in JAKE THE SNAKE ROBERTS. Little did anyone know, Andy Vineberg had a childhood fear of Jake "The Snake" Roberts. However, judging by the statements below, Andy doesn't look like he will let his fear get in his team's way.
Will Andy Vineberg's Winners manipulate their way to another victory and send Pat Anthony and Bob Starr home without jobs or will Vineberg's fear of Jake Roberts derail The Winners? The only way to find out is to be there live THIS SATURDAY NIGHT at Liberty High School in Eldersburg, MD as ACW presents: Chaos in Carroll County II. Tickets are available at www.btwtickets.com.
