February 18th 2017 MIW returned to the Chanhassen American Legion for a match 5 months in the making. The tension between Playboy Pete Huge and Terry Fox could no longer be contained. The biggest match in the history of MIW El Bano on behalf of Terry Fox vs Scott Story on behalf of Pete Huge. Earlier in the week Terry Fox had been assaulted by two men in a parking lot, and hospitalized. Fox described one of the attackers as having a red mask with white hammer and sickle. As fate would have it, this man showed up to cost El Bano the match, and catapult Pete Huge into power in MIW. Earlier in the evening Terry Fox had added the stipulation of 2-out-of-3 falls for this contest, with El Bano winning the second fall and clearly in the dominant position, Pete Huge’s apparent ally appeared. Of course, Huge claims no knowledge of this person.

Also in the evening
“Husky Heartthrob” Kody Rice overcame outside interference from Tom T. Butterman and defeated Stonehenge Joseph Wayne by successfully utilizing his off the apron flying hip attack.
Chadwick Wentworth III defeated Heavy Metal Lore in another MIW heavyweight match-up. Wentworth had his trademark golf club confiscated by the referee. Ever the crafty veteran, Wentworth had a second club stashed under the ring which he used to bloody the face of Lore and claim the victory.
In MIW’s first ever hair-vs-mustache match, “The Genuine Article” Chris Jordan defeated “Mr Entertainment” Ty Cooper. True to his word, Cooper shaved his mustache off after the match. Then his Cohorts, Stonehenge and Aiden Wake, turned on Cooper and assaulted him. In a noble gesture, Chris Jordan returned to assist Cooper and share with the audience some words of respect that he has for Ty Cooper .
