Matt Tremont vs Mad Man Pondo
Fans Bring the Weapons
Ebenezer Church Road, Townsend, Delaware, United States
(reviewed 09/22/2017) Of the “Tremont plays the greatest hits with deathmatch legends” tour that I’ve seen so far, this is one of the better matches, which is sort of surprising considering what stage of his career Pondo’s in at this point. But they keep it simple and play with the wacky arsenal of tools at hand here, including a dildo drill (drilldo), a baseball bat with a circular saw on the end, a bag of DUPLO blocks, and Pondo’s signature stop sign and bowling ball, the latter two of which are used to tremendous effect. Pondo does most of the beating and Tremont does most of the bumping/selling/feeding so everyone’s playing to their strengths and the crowd’s all about it. Tremont turns it around in a staggering way by launching Pondo head-first into a trash can full of light tubes and follows this up with a DVD onto a goddamn bicycle. Craziness. Nothing mindblowing, as it’s a 2017 Pondo match after all, but a very fun legacy deathmatch here.
