Inspire Pro Wrestling results from AFS Cinema in Austin, Texas on 3/3/19 live on Highspots Wrestling Network:
Chandler Hopkins pinned Andy Dalton in a good opener. Dalton gave Hopkins a lariat and the brain buster but Hopkins kicked out. Dalton tried to follow up with a piledriver but Hopkins turned it into a jackknife pin.
Moonshine Mantel came out after the match and attacked Dalton for seemingly no reason. He gave Dalton a couple of clotheslines in the corner and a belly to belly suplex then threw him out of the ring.
Moonshine Mantell pinned Ethan Price after a Gory Bomb. Roxy Castillo was in the corner of Price. The story was Price tried his best but couldn’t survive the monster heel.
Terrale Tempo won a handicap match over T-Ray, Ashton Jacobs, and manager Dan the Man. Tempo pushed T-Ray off the top rope and he landed right on Dan the Man outside. Tempo pinned Jacobs who was left without backup. The stipulation was if Tempo won, he would get a shot at the Pure Prestige Title held by MJF and released from his contract with Dan the Man. But if Tempo lost, he would remain under contract and become a “mute” member of the heel stable Friends Under Corporate Contract.

Thunder Rosa came out with the rest of the women on the show and asked Kris Wolf to come back into the ring. Rosa was emotional and hugged Wolf and held her close.
She told the crowd that this was Wolf’s last show in Texas and informed them Wolf was retiring this year. Rosa said when she went to STARDOM she almost died there and Wolf took care of her. She said Wolf looked out for all the foreign women and became their friend in STARDOM when not many others would. She said Wolf was told she would not be a star but she proved people wrong.
Wolf did not speak but smiled with joy.
Rosa put Wolf on her shoulders and carried her around ringside so she could high five all the fans. The crowd chanted, “Thank You, Kris Wolf!”
J. Serious won the Inspire Pro Title from Zac Taylor after two samurai drivers. These two put on a wrestling clinic as both are technical marvels. Well deserved push for Serious. After the match, Serious got on the mic and said he’d been with the company for seven years and complained that it was his first title shot.
Baby D., Luigi Primo, and Bruno De La Rosa beat Cam Cole, Keifer Bartek, and Raychell Rose when Primo threw the pizza dough he always tosses around in the face of Bartek for the pin.
Bis, the authority figure, came out for announcements. He said the next date at AFS Cinema will be May 26 and it will be the final show at the venue.
Apparently the building no longer wants to host any pro wrestling events because AAW Pro is effected too.
Bis said an announcement about a new home for Inspire Pro will be made when it becomes official. He said Veda Scott, Session Moth Martina, and LAX are booked for May 26.
Kody Lane won the Undefinable Title from Delilah Doom. Lane won the Lawless Darkness Rules Match late last year which earned him the right to not obey any rules for the year. Ethan Price was in the corner of Lane. Price got on the ring and tried to talk Lane out of wanting to use the title belt as a weapon. Doom then accidentally ran into Price and knocked him off the ring. Lane hit her with the title when she turned around and pinned her for the win. Doom got on the mic after the match and she was crying. She said “Just because you can doesn’t mean you have to” in reference to using the Lawless Darkness Rules.
Ricky Starks pinned Eddie Kingston after two spears. Kingston was managed by Dan the Man who repeatedly tried to interfere until Starks kicked him off the ring.
Steve O’Reno, Thunder Rosa, and Cherry Ramons beat Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky when O’Reno pinned Daniels after flying off the top rope and connecting with a blockbuster.
When SCU came to the ring, Sky got on the mic and asked where “The Circus Fam” was. That was in reference to Wrestle Circus which still considers itself on hiatus and not defunct. Sky gave a shout out to the WC owners. WC was the first major U.S. indie group to air free and live on Twitch a couple of years ago then everyone started doing it.
Both teams were over with the crowd, but when Thunder Rosa was in there against SCU, the crowd was really into it. Rosa started chopping both Daniels and Kazarian until they put her down with a double team slam. Rosa later hit Kazarian with a super looking Canadian Destroyer.
After the match, Kazarian said O’Reno, Ramons, and Rosa proved they could hang with the best and they were a good team.
Sky said Austin knows how he feels about them. He said he was struggling in his career but working there turned it around.
Daniels got on the mic and said he’s been in the business for 26 years and he sees indie wrestling growing around the country. He said years ago a place like AFS Cinema would be a third or less full and now it’s packed. He said even if SCU doesn’t come back to Inspire Pro, fans still have a hard working group on the roster to look forward to seeing.
Rosa thanked everyone in the match and said it was an honor to be the only woman with them in it. She said when she was starting out in California a few years ago, Sky’s name was all over the place.
O’Reno said SCU are his heroes and noted that he uses a lot of their moves.
They all raised each other’s arms in respect to end the show.
