The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title tour of America moved to Des Moines, Iowa last night where Joey Ryan defended the title against Colt Cabana and Chuck Taylor for F1RST Wrestling. Chuck Taylor won the match to become the new champion but then Scott Hall showed up! Taylor got knocked out then Hall beat Ryan in a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to determine who should pin Taylor. 2016 wrestling is weird.
