If you’ve never heard of Joseph P. Kelly then all you really need to know is that he is an independent filmmaker who loves wrestling. There is more information about Kelly here. The last credit listed on his producer filmography is Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies, which should give you some idea of the kind of filmmaker he is. As for Kelly’s YouTube channel, wrestling fans may most enjoy the P6W footage the most though it is quite scarce. The channel has been around for approximately three years and in that time only four P6W clips have been uploaded. There have been two full shows, an isolated match and this trailer. It looks like P6W didn’t have a great budget to film their shows, but matches are shot with multiple cameras and have commentary on them. Other than the P6W stuff most of the other clips relate to Kelly’s film career such as this trailer for the film, Community Service The Movie.

The Rich Kids on the Block vs. Harry Tough and The Guardian Angel

The Rich Kids on the Block, which consists of Gerald Jefferies and Tony The Butler come out to the Mean Street Posse’s old WWF theme. Their opponents are a masked man known as Harry Tough and The Guardian Angel. The Guardian Angel gimmick has actually been done before by no less of a performer than Ray Traylor aka The Big Boss Man. This bout taking place from Hamlin, New York is performed in front of a tiny crowd and uses an even tinier ring. It looks like some players from a local football team is in attendance and make up a big part of the audience. At least they are super into it.

There are not a lot of flashy moves in this match. For a while it seems like the entire bout consists of Jefferies and The Butler tagging each other in and out of the ring only to be hit with a punch or some other strike from Tough. Meanwhile, The Guardian Angel does nothing on the ring apron. For the finish Tough actually teases a chokeslam, but instead goes for a suplex. Jefferies flips over Tough and pins him with a schoolboy. Well, I guess it is safe to say P6W doesn’t pay by the hour!
