FROM THE VAULT: The FTV series presents some of your favorite W4H wrestlers early in their underground careers, or early matches filmed that formed the foundation of the W4H empire. In the pantheon of underground wrestlers who have done work for W4H, there are three that seem to have the most experience: Cameron, Jonny Firestorm, and Lon Dumont. Unfortunately for Tommy Laine, he has been in the ring with all three. This time he stares across the squared circle at Dumont. I am sorry to say that his fortunes in this bout pretty much mirror what he was able to accomplish against Firestorm and the Champ.
Here, Tommy is lost, and he happens upon Lon in the ring. After a few niceties, Lon determines that is time to just get down to brass tacks and delivers a kick to Tommy's midsection. That begins a nearly 30 minute beatdown of the young Laine. After an initial sequence of banter between Dumont and Laine, suddenly Tommy finds he has little to say, except to moan in pain. Lon, per usual, has much to say to his opponent, and goes on an almost 30 minute monologue.
Tommy has been stretched and pulled and twisted in more ways than I can count, and that is no different here. Figure four leg-locks give way to half Boston crabs, give way to an abdominal stretch on the mat, all the while Tommy is screaming for it to stop and Lon is ignoring his pleas. When Lon decides the end for Tommy has come, he does so with a face to face sleeper hold, covering Tommy's mouth and nose, depriving him of oxygen and watches as Tommy slowly departs the land of the waking. One last muscle pose over the prone Laine and Lon has given Tommy a lesson he won't soon forget.
TOTAL RUN-TIME: 30 minutes, 07 seconds
