The Schmuck was stopped at MCW’s Shamrock Cup

Peter Schmuck pulled every dirty trick in the book, but it wasn’t enough.

The smart-aleck Baltimore Sun sports columnist and blogger finally got his comeuppance (not to mention a thorough butt-kicking) before a standing-room-only crowd of more than 700 at Maryland Championship Wrestling’s Shamrock Cup Saturday night at The New Green Room in Dundalk, as Ronnie Zukko, Cole Callaway and I defeated Schmuck and Fed-Up in the Battle of the Bloggers six-man tag match.

I’ll admit that things looked bad for our side for a while and I was pretty frustrated by Schmuck repeatedly avoiding any physical contact with me except to pick his spots and deliver cheap shots, but once I saw an opening, I seized it.

When I realized that I had Schmuck cornered, it was like an out-of-body experience. I was practically salivating as I waited for Schmuck to turn around so that I could deliver the RKO Heard Around Dundalk.

Hopefully, Schmuck learned his lesson about insulting pro wrestling and Dundalk. I had a great time getting in the ring (one more thing I can cross off my bucket list) and managed to get through the match without breaking my neck (although my chest is still sore from all the chops I took from Fed-Up). I appreciate the fans who supported me, as well as the efforts and patience of my trainers – Zukko, Earl The Pearl and Duane “Gillberg” Gill. I suppose I even have to thank the Fed-Ups boys, because if they didn’t agree to team with Schmuck, there wouldn’t have been a match.

My only regret is that by being backstage all night I missed what was by most accounts a fantastic show. Ryan McBride defeated Kent Brick for the MCW championship in a match that really popped the crowd, Christian York won the Shamrock Cup and Mickie James and Tommy Dreamer both wrestled.

There will be video footage of my match as well as video interviews with James, Dreamer and Axl Rotten in the coming days.

You contrived this whole "Battle of the Blogs" scheme just because you knew Mickie James was going to be at the show and knew you could use a photo-op as an excuse to touch her, didn' t you?

Not an RKO... you gotta brand it, Kevin.. I'm thinking the Eck-O!

I believe you did the Diamond Cutter... made him feel the BANG!!

And I thought for sure you'd give him the Super Kick...

You should have turned on Calloway and Zukko and bashed wrestling. Russo would have booked it that way.

Kev, couldn't help but notice that you were wearing the black and purple Ravens) and Schmuck was wearing black and orange (Orioles.) No wonder you won.

RESPONSE FROM KE: Very astute observation.

a bunch of third graders - wrasslin - get a life

You should have finish him with the spear or super kick. That was an ugly RKO

RESPONSE FROM KE: Yeah, I wish it would have been smoother. I was nailing them perfectly in training!

Who says any Schmuck can come to Dundalk and make a name for himself?

So this whole feud was a work??? I am truly sickened now. This is a dark day in the wrestling world.

You actually got the worse end of it in the ring with all the cheap shots. Next time get Wildfire Tommy Rich or Jack Victory to give you some tips and some foreign objects...
