Fans have dream matches. So do wrestlers. At a recent show in the Jeffersonville Arena, Reed Bentley of the Rejects confided in me that he and John Wayne Murdoch had an ultimate dream match they really wanted to make happen.
The Rejects vs. Baka Gaijin
For those who don’t know, Baka Gaijin (which translates to “Stupid Foreigners”) is the tag team of Mad Man Pondo and 2 Tuff Tony. They were the forerunners, the originators if you will, of the smash mouth, over the top fighting style that has become the signature of the Rejects. When you see a Rejects match, you’re going to get very little scientific wrestling. You’re going to see hard punches, steel chairs, tables, mayhem, weapons. The phrase “everything but the kitchen sink” would apply, except for the fact that if Reed and John could get at the kitchen sink, they’d gladly use it too.
Tony and Pondo are cut from the same mold. They light to fight. They like to bleed. They’re not afraid to get crazy. They’re also deceptively athletic for two big guys who have been going hard for a couple of decades now. If you’ve never seen that backflip 2 Tuff Tony does off the ropes, it’ll make your jaw drop.
The Rejects have told Tony and Pondo they will fight any time, anywhere, and even put their GCW Tag Team Championship on the line. Pondo, for his part is all for it. But Tony, who also happens to own the Arena where Reed and I discussed this match, is holding out.
Reed and I discussed this situation and we agreed something needs to be done to make this much happen. So here’s what you, as fans can do.
- Copy and paste the letter printed below into an email and fill the blank at the bottom with your name.
- Address the email to Reed Bentley, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Click send.
Reed will collect your emails, print them out, and present them in the ring some time in the near future to demonstrate to Tony just how badly the fans want this match. If enough fans respond, how can he say no?
Copy, paste, and email, fans. Let your voice be heard. Let’s make The Rejects vs. Baka Gaijin a reality!
Dear 2 Tuff Tony,
I am writing to request that you accept the challenge issued by The Rejects, John Wayne Murdoch and Reed Bentley, to a tag team match with your tag partner Mad Man Pondo. This colossal match is a must-see for me and all your legions of fans, and if you choose to accept it, I hereby vow to:
a. Share the advertising for this epic, Godzilla vs. King Kong like match up all over my social media;
b. Be in attendance for the show, wherever and whenever it takes place, and/or watch it on the Internet wherever and whenever it is made available to view;
c. Grab my s**t and get out of the way when I see the action coming my way;
d. Stream live or share afterwards my reaction to what promises to be the most brutal, over the top, mind blowing, head smashing, table shredding, chair mangling, knockdown, drag out wrestling affair of all time.
Thank you in advancing for responding and accepting my challenge to come and get your whipping at the hands of John Wayne Murdoch and Reed Bentley.
