The 2012 Anarchy Prom started off with an impromptu “concert” by the reuniting of Kissyboots: Rachel Summerlyn, Skylar Skelly, Drew Lucid, Starr Babaganosh, and Chesty LaRue. They were quickly interrupted by Darin Childs, who wanted to speak to Rachel Summerlyn directly. At this point, Darin got down on one knee, and popped the question to Rachel: Will she be his opponent for Guilty By Association 7? Darin Childs then told Rachel Summerlyn to think it over, then took away her valet Machiko to be his “prom date” for the evening.
The first match of the night was scheduled to be Killah Kash vs. “Showtime” Scot Summers, in a grudge match stemming from Kash spiking Summers in the eye last month. With Kash already in the ring, Showtime’s music hit, but out came his “half brother” Stan Summers. Stan was greeted with a boot to the face, which lead to Jerry Lynn coming to the ring to confront Kash. With Kash distracted, Showtime snuck into the ring and demolished Kash with a steel chair, giving Kash no other option but to retreat.
The next match was a tag team match, as The Takeover members “Cowboy” James Claxton and Carson took on Bolt Brady and Ricky Romida, newly christened as “The Electric Company”. The big men of The Takeover isolated Brady early on, keeping him far away from his partner. In the end, the power of Carson and Claxton was too much, and Carson pinned both Brady and Romida. After the match, The Takeover continued their assault, attacking both men further.
JT LaMotta made his way to the ring, noting that after his actions at last year’s Prom, nobody in the back wanted to be his “date”. Before he had the chance to find a suitor in the crowd, Chingo del Santo’s music hit to start the match. Intense back and forth action from both men, with LaMotta picking up the victory after a dive from the top rope. After the match, LaMotta found a woman in the audience who wanted to be his “date” for the evening, and immediately took her to the back.
The next scheduled match was to be a returning Slim Sexy challenging Highroller Hayze in a grudge match. However, Slim Sexy announced that due to recent surgery, Hayze was unable to compete. He was quickly met by the team of Mojo Bravado – Jorden Jensen and Jojo Bravo. The team challenged Slim to a handicap match, which Slim accepted. During the chaos, JC Bravo made his way to the ring, evening the score to make it a tag match. Jensen and Slim brawled to the back, allowing Jojo to hit JC with the Samurai Driver to pick up the victory.
The first of the Prom-themed matches was next, in a Double Date Tag Match. The team of Athena and Anarchy Televised Champion Davey Vega dueled with Su Yung and World Hardcore Champion Matthew Palmer. Before the match started, each couple took time to slow dance in the ring, eventually trading partners in every combination. The dancing stopped when Athena nailed Su Yung, and the match began. Right as Athena was about to put Su Yung away, Mojo Bravado returned to the ring, causing a distraction and attacking Vega. Palmer jumped into the fight, and all four men brawled to the back. With Athena occupied with the chaos, Su Yung took advantage, getting the victory with a rollup.
In the last match before intermission, Pierre Abernathy took on Robert Evans. Evans started the match by sneaking in from behind the crowd, and attacking Abernathy with a wrench. Abernathy was able to slowly recover, but the damage had already been done. Evans, frustrated by his inability to put Abernathy away, once again looked to use the wrench, but Abernathy was able to block it. As he was looking to get a measure of revenge, the referee stripped the wrench from his hands, allowing Evans to take advantage and score the victory.
During the intermission, it was announced that for the second year in a row, ACH was voted Prom King, while Rachel Summerlyn was voted Prom Queen. Later during intermission, Barbi Hayden was in the ring hosting a fan interaction contest, when Gary Jay’s parents came into the ring, demanding that they were the true Prom King and Queen. After pushing Hayden away, Barbi fired back against Gary’s parents, laying them out and sending them to the back.
Back from intermission, the ACW Tag Team Championship was on the line, as defending champions The Lost Boys were challenged by their former mentors in the Children of Pain, Darin Childs and Khris Wolfe. Both teams seemed to be more focused on inflicting pain than scoring a quick victory, fighting on the outside and using steel chairs. Shawn Vexx and Kash came out to help The Lost Boys, attacking Childs and Wolfe. Scot Summers returned to the ring to help even the score, and he was joined by Ryan Genesis, his tag team partner in the Kings of the Underground. The Kings targeted The Lost Boys, allowing Childs to get the pin and declare new ACW Tag Team Champions. After the match, the Kings grabbed the championships, and had a stare down with Childs and Wolfe before returning the belts.
The next match featured an ACW Prom tradition: An Evening Gown Match. This year, it was a Dream Partner Tag Team Match, as Rachel Summerlyn and a partner of her choice took on the American Joshi Champion Angel Blue and a partner of her choice. Rachel had already chosen her partner: long time rival yet newly-reformed Portia Perez. As for Angel Blue, she found a partner with longstanding issues with both Rachel and Portia: Lady Poison. Lady Poison spent a majority of the match focused on Rachel, staring her down even as she was outside the ring. Despite their past differences, Portia and Rachel were able to work cohesively as a team. Rachel Summerlyn was eliminated first by Lady Poison, who hit Rachel with the Poison Kiss and ripped off her dress. Then, Lady Poison eliminated herself by ripping off her own dress. During the chaos, Portia Perez was blinded with glitter by Angel Blue, and in her blindness accidently superkicked a helping Rachel. Angel Blue capitalized on a distracted Portia Perez, and ripped her evening gown off to win the match. With Portia Perez alone in the ring, Robert Evans returned carrying a bouquet of flowers and a wrapped gift, as “Time After Time” began playing. Robert tried convincing Portia that they were one in the same, both broken and tortured, and offered her a gift: a framed photo of her sister playing with her son in her home in Canada. Portia, shocked and horrified at how Robert would have access to such a photo, was scared from the ring. Robert was left all alone yet again.
The semi-main event of the evening was for the Anarchy Heavyweight Championship, as Shawn Vexx and Jaykus Plisken challenging ACH in a return match from last month. And in a scene similar to last month, Jaykus Plisken spent a majority of the match physically dissecting ACH, almost toying with him. And Shawn Vexx was right there to pick up whenever Jaykus let up, giving ACH almost no time to breathe. But ACH was able to fight back, dividing and conquering. Shawn Vexx was eliminated first by ACH with a rollup, but made sure to leave his mark by laying out ACH before he left the ring. Jaykus again started to toy with ACH, stopping his own three counts. But once again, he made the mistake of giving ACH too many opportunities, and ACH capitalized with a hurricanrana, picking up the victory. After the match, Jaykus Plisken vowed that ACH’s title reign will soon be over.
In the main event, members of the Submission Squad Gary Jay and Evan Gelistico took on the team of Mat Fitchett and Jerry Lynn. Evan has had his eyes set on Jerry Lynn since February, and was able to face him in the ring for the first time. The Submission Squad spent the majority of the match keeping Fitchett away from his corner, preventing him from tagging in the Godfather of Anarchy. But Jerry Lynn refused to stay patient in his corner, choosing to attack Gary Jay and Evan Gelistico, as a wild brawl emerged. In the chaos, Gelistico was able to trap Lynn in the Gateway City Stretch in the center of the ring. But before Jerry Lynn could tap, Fitchett was able to lay out Gary Jay, and connect with the Shooting Star Press, getting the three count just before Jerry Lynn tapped, securing the win for FItchett and Lynn.
