IMS-Magnum-CK


We finally got Magnum CK locked down to talk with him about where he’s come from and what he’s up to these days. And, boy does he have a story. Magnum shares an early memory of wrestling that involves Hulk Hogan and a purse – but, that’s not even the best story on this week’s episode. He talks about some great interactions with wrestling dynamos like Matt Hardy and Dusty Rhodes, a documentary he was part of, taking a break from wrestling, some insight into his character development, and more!

Around the Indys: 9/18/16

JPEG image-52C4E60BC47A-1

Normally, I come out here and show you tweets and facebook posts about what happened this week in the world of independent wrestling, however I would like to delve into the world that social media has on the world of independent professional wrestling.

 

Through the awesomeness of some wrestling sites posting awesome shots from shows to slow mo camera gifs, we live in a world where everything should be accessible through some sort of medium and whether it’s pictures, moving pictures or just straight videos, that’s the best way to find what appeals to you.

 

 

Remember when they were just testing out live free iPPVs? Remember how many weeks of promotion was put into a promotion, like a ROH or a AIW or other federations that put their best card on free iPPV because they wanted more eyes on their product? It was always “DON’T FORGET TO FOLLOW (indy federation) FOR ALL THE NEWS REGARDING OUR IPPV THAT WILL BE FREE! TO YOU!” and what happened when the iPPV decided to start? More than likely, it was clustered with hiccups, stalls, and bad audio/visuals and it wasn’t always the best look of that promotion.

 

 

However, last Saturday Chikara did something unexpected, unannounced and promoted only on the day of the event…they posted their entire Black Goodbye LIVE ON FACEBOOK LIVE to promote on why you should pick up Chikaratopia and I got to say, there was absolutely zero negative comments coming from my end. The stream ran smooth, Vlad was Vlad-like and, of course, the wrestling was amazing.

 

The main event of the evening was for the Grand Champion, as two former Wrestle Factory trainees,  Hallowicked and Drew Gulak, were technically sound in their match and tore the roof down (with Hallowicked retaining his Grand Champion crown).

 

 

I’m all for using Periscope for a match or two. Do your thing, indy wrestling…but Chikara took it to another level with streaming their entire event. I’m even better knowing that a promotion, such as Chikara, is just crazy enough to make sure that the fans get to see these matches the same way you will see them via their streaming service. So, good on Chikara for being on their game and using social media to their advantage.

In Ontario, Canada, Alpha-1 had their second MatRats event and it featured a main event that was for the A1 Alpha Male Title, where Heidi Lovelace defended her title against Kobe Durst in a Last Man Standing match and, yeah, it featured Kobe Durst taking out Heidi with a piledriver from the top of a damn ladder!

Kobe Durst wound up victorious and taking the A1 Alpha Male Title from Heidi Lovelace.

Also, The Theory of Evolution (Jim Nye and Space Monkey) successfully defended their tag team titles from Team IOU (Kerry Awful and Nick Iggy). And for the Zero Gravity championship, Alessandro Del Bruno defended his title against Shane Sabre.

But the star power didn’t end with the title matches, oh no. Dick Justice and Swoggle teamed up to defeat The Black Spades (Justin Sane and Lionel Knight), and Scotty O’Shea wrestled in a 2-on-1 handicap match and successfully defeated Joey Kings and Josh Alexander.

If you have a federation that you would like to see us go around in this section, e-mail Goodtimes@wrestlingmayhemshow.com and we’ll see YOU around the indys.
