LUDOWICI — Morbid Angel outlasted 11 other wrestlers to win the R&B DVD championship belt Saturday night in Ludowici.
In a 12-man battle royal match that pitted some of the finest independent professional wrestlers in the Southeast, Morbid Angel and Jamie Hall ended up as the final two competitors in the match for the vacant title.
Hall, who owns one-half of the R&B tag team championship, seemed to be the quicker of the two wrestlers, but Angel had more experience and got the three count to take the belt.
Earlier that night, Angel and his partner T-Money challenged Hall and his partner Blade Walker for their tag team championship belt, but in that match, Hall and the Blade got the upper hand.
One of the more popular matches of the night pitted Donavon Sweet, with his "lovely" lady-friend Lolli-Pop outside the ring, taking on the masked Mystery Man.
Mystery Man made no friends at the Long County High School gym, as he put down the fans in the ring by call them "ignorant rednecks" and by criticizing the Blue Tide football team.
Sweet ended up defeating the masked man and, to everyone’s pleasure forced him to say, "Roll, Blue Tide."
Probably the biggest fan favorite of the night pitted Super Star Cameron Larue against the Modern Day Cowboy Chris Anthony (Wiley).
Anthony, who hails from Fort Stewart, defeated Larue, and the night had special meaning for him and all of his kid fans. It was his last match for some time, since the Georgia National Guardsman recently re-enlisted into the Army.
In what had to be the biggest upset of the night, Jordon Thomas, who was outweighed by nearly 100 pounds, won his match against one of R&B’s biggest men, Ox Madison.
Another tag team match had Arctic X and Super Unknown, defeating the Russian Penny Koloff and Vern Von Raske.
The wrestling was sponsored by the Long County Touchdown Club, and all proceeds went to the Blue Tide football program.
"We had a heck of a night of wrestling and for those who attended, they had a great time. We hope to do this again in the future and I think it will only grow next time" club treasure Joey Harrison said.
R&B Wrestling is owned by Redd Groover and Billy Westberry and promotes wrestling and assists with fundraising events.
"We will help any good cause out there, last week we were in Hazelhurst raising money for a little girl who was having muscle failure and was losing her ability to walk," Groover said.
"Joey (Harrison) got in touch with us about helping the football team and we were glad to come set up. Everyone always has a good time."
