Joey Ryan's FIP debut

Postby ozmania » Tue Jul 22, 2008 4:22 pm

Joey Ryan made his debut for ROH's sister promotion FIP in Florida this past Saturday Night. Here are two different reports I read for his debut. Although he lost the match, I'd still say his outing was successful.

From Wrestling Observer
Joey Ryan comes out to a huge ovation. He cuts a promo on Sal Rinauro, stating that he is a major player and a former WCW Cruiserweight Champion. I don't remember this whatsover. Sal Rinauro comes back and cuts a promo of his own and we're off to the races.

Match #6: FIP Florida Heritage Champion Sal Rinauro defeated Joey Ryan to retain the title. This was BUYS~! in every sense of the word. The match begins with pure comedy to start it, with Sal and Joey trading moves. It took both men four tries to do a kip-up. They did the infamous Eddie/Dean spot where they trade moves and stare each other down after a series of moves. Anyways, Joey ran wild to start until Sal started to cheat. The fans started to chant "Sal's a chicken" again, and I cringed. Thankfully the other side chanted "please don't chant that", and nullified my lobotimized state. Sal continued to cut him off and beat on him some more until Joey made a small comeback. We saw some light high-flying maneuvers until Sal hit a springboard spin kick for the win. Clean! (***) "Please Come Back" chant for Joey.

From ROH Messageboard
Sal Rinauro retained the FIP Florida Heritage title over Joey Ryan. Joey was a face and was WAY over with the FIP crowd.
Note: Last night at GEAR (a promotion in Florida) these two teamed, and Sal turned on Ryan.
These two wrestled a very fun match, early on working the typical heel tactics for some fun comedy, and went about 10 - 15 or so but Sal won with his Reverse 180 Springboard kick to the face. Joey Ryan got a massive "please come back" chant.

I noticed Joey having FIP on his myspace calendar, I'm glad everything went well for him and wish him all the best.

Joey should have won though, but oh well, hopefully Erik Stevens will be experiencing a Moustache Ride ASAP.
