Armageddon: Agents of Change keep IPW tag team titles
With an Armageddon Cup Champion crowned on Saturday, Sunday and Monday’s Armageddon sessions quickly became focussed on the IPW tag team titles, held by Aaron Henry and Jakob Cross.
The Agents of Change, as Cross and Henry are collectively known, put their titles on the line against New Zealand number one Travis Banks and Mason Daniels in an Auckland Street Fight on Monday afternoon.
Henry began the contest with a hard slap to Banks, who then called for two chairs to be brought to the ring and invited Henry to take a seat.
The two began to trade right hands, with Banks’ open-hand strikes rattling Henry to the point the tag champion left his seat. Banks then pulled the chair out from under Henry and nailed him with a running kick.
As the match progressed the Agents of Change found themselves on the outside of the ring and hastily climbed the security barricades to avoid suicide dives from Banks and Daniels.
The tag team champs didn’t expect Banks and Daniels to give chase though, and the two teams began to brawl all over the Armageddon Expo, from the rubbish bins to the Memphis Meltdown stand.
Cross and Henry got the better of the brawl that had ensued and returned to the ring with Mason Daniels cut off from his partner.
After a beat-down on the rookie competitor, Henry was caught off guard by a backflip kick from Daniels, and both men tagged out to Banks and Cross respectively.
Banks knocked Cross from the ring with a hard forearm shot and, when Henry went to check on his partner, Mason Daniels flew over the top rope to land on both Agents of Change.
Banks sent Daniels to the top rope but Cross was ready and waiting with a chair at the same time Henry knocked Banks from the apron, leaving Daniels alone straddling the turnbuckle with the IPW tag team titleholders.
Cross and Henry grabbed an arm of Daniels’ each and flung him to the mat with a double crucifix powerbomb before Henry covered Daniels for the victory.
