Mini Biography: Johnny Gargano's infatuation with wrestling skyrocketed at the age of eight-years-old, when he first stepped inside of a wrestling ring. Eight years later, the Ohio native would enroll in Cleveland All–Pro Wrestling's school, and since then the independent sensation has yet to quit. Making his professional wrestling debut in 2005, Johnny Gargano has since then torn through the independent wrestling world - making his name prominent in companies such as Dragon Gate USA and Chikara. Now he has made his way to WWE NXT, regularly teaming with good friend Tommaso Ciampa as well as being a competitor in the first ever Cruiserweight Classic. There is only one place for him - the top. Johnny Gargano is "All Heart" and has a long history to prove it.

With Wink Vavasseur setting up F.I.S.T. vs. F.I.S.T. tonight in Cleveland, Ohio, many wondered which team would manage to get the edge: All signs pointing to Gargano and Taylor for experience alone. Taylor and Gargano desperately needed their obtained opportunity to prove that they deserved the #1 contendership slot to become the 3x Campeones, while the other two simply needed to get by without tearing each other apart, limb from limb. The match proved to be a struggle for Icarus and Sugar, neither man finding themselves on the same page until the very end – right before Gargano and Taylor walked away with the victory for a successful weekend.

King of Trios Quarter-Final: F.I.S.T. – Chuck Taylor & Johnny Gargano & Icarus vs. Team JWP  – Commando Bolshoi, Kaori Yoneyama, and Tsubasa KuragakiYoneyama and Taylor were going to start out but Taylor immediately tagged out to Icarus.  Icarus controlled her early with several power spots and slams.  She slipped out of the corner and nailed a big kick before tagging in Bolshoi.  Gargano tagged in as well and they locked up.  He forced her into the corner and let her go, grandstanding.  The crowd chanted for Bolshoi.Gargano shoved her down and each time she leapt back to her feet.  Bolshoi hit a series of armdrags that sent Gargano scampering to the floor. Kuragaki tagged in as did Taylor.  This time it was Taylor getting sent flying due to her power.

They locked up and again she out muscled him.   FIST began triple-teaming her but she came back to wipe them out with big running clotheslines.   Team JWP began triple teaming F.I.S.T with Kuragaki superplexing her own partners down on FIST from the ropes and then coming off with a big splash.  FIST ran to the floor to regroup as the crowd chanted “JWP.”

Back in the ring, Gargano took control on Yoneyama but she quickly fired back with chops before getting cut off with a stiff kick for a two count.   Icarus tagged in and came off with an double axehandle to the back.   He picked her up for a slam and tagged back in Taylor.

Taylor continued working over Yoneyama.  Gargano joined the fray and drilled her with several kicks to the mid-section.   He slammed her down for a two count and held her for Icarus to kick.  Icarus suplexed her over and slammed her down, before laying a knee down on her for a two count.

Icarus took off his shirt and kissed Yoneyama.  This incensed her she leapt up and over during a charge and nailed a German suplex.  The crowd clapped for her to make the hot tag and she did to Bolshoi.  F.I.S.T. charged the ring and JWP met them.

Bolshoi cleared the ring and nailed an awesome Asai moonsault to the outside.  Icarus and Gargano tried to double team Kuragaki but she ran through a double clothesline attempt and drilled them, then suplexed both for a two count.    Yoneyama nailed a running sliced bread #2 off the ropes for a near fall.  Bolshoi locked an Octopus on Taylor for a near submission.

Everyone went into a great series of near falls.  Kuragaki locked Gargano in a Torture Race for a near submission.  Sugar Dunkerton, who was in FIST’s corner got involved and was shoved into Yoneyama, knocking her down.  Taylor locked her in a Boston Crab and she submitted.

Your winners, FIST!

Really good opening match as everyone worked their rear ends off.  The crowd gave JWP a standing ovation after the match.

Coming out strong in what was described by PWPondering’s as “the best match ever,” F.I.S.T managed to snake away with the victory over Team Osaka Pro (Kikutaro, Ebessan & Takoyakida). Sugar Dunkerton stood proud in F.I.S.T’s corner and ultimately led the trio to victory. After a 21 minute match, Icarus jabbed Takoyakida in the face with Dunkerton’s fro pick to get the pin, allowing the experienced team to continue on in the tournament at tomorrow’s show.
