New SoCal Pro Golden State Champion: Ricky Mandel

By hook or by crook, the “Mirror Image Mega Stars” insured that they would crown the first ever SoCal Pro Golden State Champion when Tommy Wilson took an active role in the outcome of a few of the Summer Classic Tournament matches.

In First Round Action, Tommy Wilson superkicked already injured SoCal Crazy to afford “Lovin” Nick Lovin advancement into the second round action.  Mandel bested Eddie “Too Hot To Handle” Randle via submission to a Boston crab.

In the Semi Finals, the “Mirror Image Mega Stars” couldn’t save Nick Lovin from a 450 Splash from Ryan Kidd who would advance to the finals.  And because of Paradise unwillingness to listen to the officials, Mandel would receive a bye into the final round.

Ryan Kidd’s road to destiny would be curtailed by “The Mirror Image Mega Stars” yet again when Tommy Wilson would distract the referee to allow Joey “The Bone” Barone to hit his “Crash Landing” on Kidd and giving Mandel to gain the victory.  During the post match celebration, Barone revealed himself to be part of the “M.I.M.S.”
