Genesis: The era of DeJong begins

A chill was in the air as “The One” Vinny Dunn both retained and lost the IPW Heavyweight championship at Genesis.

“The Samoan Silverback” Alexander showed the crowd that he had the goods to take "Te Tahi" from bell-to-bell but failed to capture the championship after Dunn showed his agility and ring smarts, countering the big man’s spear with a sunset flip to gain the victory.

As Vinny Dunn started to celebrate, Justin Lane interrupted the party with an announcement. Last month when Dunn put out an open challenge for the championship, Alexander wasn’t the only man to sign a contract for a title shot.

A confused Dunn listened as Lane announced that his client, Reuben DeJong had responded to his open challenge, with the championship match happening tonight. The crowd buzzed as Reuben DeJong made his way to the ring for the next championship bout.

Dunn stood head to chest with the 6”10' monster, showing no signs of fear as he unleashed on DeJong.

The champion tried to take the big man down with a series of clothesline attempts, but fell down to a shoulder block. Reuben showed his power, pulling "Te Tahi" from the mat, executing Snake Eyes on the turnbuckle and following it up with a clothesline.

DeJong taunted Dunn, pulling him up by his throat and delivering a devastating double-handed choke bomb! DeJong then covered the Dunn to become the new IPW Heavyweight Champion!

To a chorus of boos from the shocked crowd, Reuben DeJong stood over "Te Tahi’s" motionless body, raising his newly-won championship belt into the air.

Full IPW Genesis results:

  • Jordan Invincible destroyed The Antagonist & Flagboy
    Interrupting a promo by “The Ex Patriot” Alfred Valentine, Invincible took no time to destroy both The Antagonist & Flagboy. Flagboy broke a chair over Invincible’s head to no avail and ended up becoming the victim to a thunderous Tiger bomb off the stage through a table!

  • Astro Boy & Rocketman def. “Handsome” Danny Jacobs & Elias via Pinfall
