They both want Savior to join the Vile Society but Savior refuses and grabs Mattick by the throat. Goes for a chokeslam but Mattick kicks him low. Jeremy Jensen comes out with a steel chair and runs off Mattick. But then inexplicably, Jensen turns around and nails Savior with the chair! Jensen hits a standing sliced bread on Savior. Then he takes off his t-shirt to reveal a Vile Society t-shirt underneath. So Mattick and Kount C got to Jensen after all. Rosecroft puts his arm over Savior and Mattick throws Richard Head who counts the pin. Post-match, Mattick, Jensen, and Kount come back in and want Rosecroft to join VS. Rosecroft thinks about it, but goes after Jensen and Mattick. Mattick and Jensen attack Rosecroft, until Savior gets back up and delivers a double chokeslam to Mattick and Jensen. Savior then pulls Rosecroft up and raises his arm in victory. Grabs the mic and tells the fans they now have a champion they can be proud of and congratulates Rosecroft on the win. So we have a new champion in Eric Rosecroft. But it already appears the new champion has a huge target on his back thanks to the Vile Society. And what was Jeremy Jensen’s reasons or motivation for joining the group? And also where does this leave the now former champion in Savior? Only time will tell.
Winner & New Champion: Eric Rosecroft
We tried to get a hold of Jason Savior about what happened during his match and here was his response:
What a weekend. The bible says God can use all things for his glory. I became too proud. Too arrogant. In the end I believe the Lord is breaking me down to build me up stronger. On that note, I have lost the KDW Heavyweight Championship Title. I’m not going to say anything bad about my opponent. Eric Rosecroft put up a fight that ultimately got him the win. He did NOTHING wrong. HOWEVER. There are a couple of vile, disgusting, cowards that I do want to point out. First Mattick and his manager. I will never join your little finger gang. Mattick. I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I’M COMING FOR YOU!!! Next is Jeremy Jenson. We have been to war and I understand his frustration. He hasn’t been able to get back on track since he lost the KDW Title to me. But to do what you did. To turn on the fans. The people who have supported you through all this. To join those creeps?!?! You’re the worst! I’m going straight after Mattick, but I’m also coming for you. The only difference is you won’t know where, and you won’t know when. Sleep tight boys. Say your prayers! Because this is far from over!!!!
With that being said, it looks like Jason Savior and the Vile Society are on a collision course in KDW. In the coming weeks, we will have news on the next KDW show in December as well as news on Upstate Professional Wrestling’s next show, November To Dismember!
