Bryan Alvarez goes down in defeat at GCW/BLP 4 Cups Stuffed

Alvarez & Billie Starkz were defeated by "Filthy" Tom Lawlor & Killer Kelly.

While the eyes of the wrestling world are on WWE and AEW this weekend, one of the highest of profile bouts saw famed podcaster/curmudgeon Bryan Alvarez team with Billie Starkz to take on Filthy Four Weekly co-host Tom Lawlor and Killer Kelly at GCW/BLP 4 Cups Stuffed Friday night in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.

Despite the bravado Alvarez showed leading up to the mixed tag team match, it was not his night as Lawlor and Kelly defeated Alvarez and Starkz in roughly sixteen minutes.

There were issues between Alvarez and Starkz from the get-go that would portend their doom:

The issues exacerbated with Alvarez later using his partner as a human shield to get a takedown on the former MMA fighter:

As was likely contractually obligated, Alvarez got his stuff in, including an impressive swanton for a 47-year-old:

Alvarez did take his licks, getting slapped repeatedly by Kelly to the delight of the fans (and many in the industry):

Proving that their former Chop 'n' Roll Express tag team is officially dead, Alvarez laid in some heavy blows to his old partner:

Lawlor, the budding NJPW star and former MLW Champion, later got his revenge:

Lawlor and Kelly showed great chemistry, especially in this suplex spot:

Lawlor also attempted to end Alvarez's podcasting career with this Michinoku Driver:

In the end, Lawlor managed to mangle his weekly podcast co-host, painfully ensnaring the reportedly BJJ black belt owner for the submission win.

Alvarez is still expected to attend Saturday's live Wrestling Observer Radio Q&A in Schaumburg, IL. However, it's unknown if he will enter next year's GCW Tournament of Survival.
