Around The Indys – Wrestling Circuses, Houses and Chaotic Christmases

ATISanta

Merry Christmas!

 

Happy Hanukkah!

 

Happy Holidays!

 

Today, boys and girls, is a fun night because all of you are tucked in your beds all nice and tightly waiting for Ol’ Saint Nick to drop in and give you all whatever you wanted…unless you’re a heel, then you get coal…no, like lots of it. A whole bunch of coal…too much coal…WHERE DID SANTA EVER GET SO MUCH COAL!?

 

But before we tuck you in to bed, let’s tell you a few stories from Papa Rizz and tell you three stories FROM AROUND THE INDYS!

 

Let’s start in the House of Hardcore, shall we? They were in Joppa, MD last Saturday and put on, as they always do, one hell of a show. One pretty sweet moment was, what I can only imagine, an ECW beatdown as originals Sandman and Tommy Dreamer defeated THE SPIRIT SQUAD, Kenny and Mikey!

 

Also, the main event was a Lucha Underground’s wet dream (that’s what I’m calling it because…well…) which featured Fenix defeating Johnny Mundo and it was as Lucha-ey as you think it was going to be.

 

Like, REALLY Lucha-ey!

And this also featured two hosses going at each other as in a ROH v. Lucha Underground match, Moose defeated The Machine Cage!

If you want to see more of HOH 23 or House of Hardcore 22, which featured Matt Hardy v. Tommy Dreamer in a cage match, FloSlam has them ready for your streaming pleasure. Dan Barry, Sonjay Dutt, Matt Striker, Kikutaro, Eddie Kingston and Jessica Havok all took part in this show and sounds amazing.

Now that we got the quiet house out of the way, let us turn this place into a straight up Circus! A WRESTLE CIRCUS (See what I did there? I made a joke about your house being a circus and comparing it to wres- you know what? Nevermind.)!

 

And, just like House of Hardcore, this one has a plethora of amazing talent from all across the independents past, present and future all focused on Austin, Texas.

 

It was headlined by an Impact Wrestling v. Lucha Underground dream match featuring the “Ringmaster” Ethan Carter the 3rd retaining his Ringmaster Title in a No DQ match against Pentagon Jr.

And a cool thing WrestleCircus is doing is they’re putting up TWO of their matches from last week’s show ON YOUTUBE! The entire matches, so I’m not going to spoil anything for you. However, they’re two matches I’m sure you do NOT want to miss.

 

Chris Hero and ACH. I just want to say those two names again, Chris Hero and ACH. Two different ends of a completely different spectrum. One a high-flying superstar who SHOULD be on everyone’s watch list in the new year (WWE and TNA included) and the other one is even more vicious than he has ever been in any year and will knock my ass out if I say anything bad about him, because I’m a very tiny human being and he is a very tall human who can decapitate me with his elbow.

 

The other free match is equally as entertaining, because it shows off ANOTHER match where both competitors are different. Colt Cabana vs. Sammy Guevara, both guys are amazing in their own special ways and they are just damn entertaining. So if you’re bored, curl up by the fire…sip some red wine and watch these two amazing matches FOR FREE! FREEEEEEEE!

But, of course, watch the rest of the show as it featured Michael Elgin, Jeff Cobb, Donovan Dijak, War Machine, Best Friends, Keith Lee and Shane Taylor,  Jervis Cottonbelly, Dick Justice, Scorpio Sky, I’m only getting started! You’re still seeing this? GO! WATCH IT! I’ll be here waiting for you!

Now, I like both promotions and they have stars from the past, present and future to entertain anything but, of course, the best place to see where wrestling is going is to see where they all start and, honestly, one of the best ways to do that is go to California for the EPBW’s Chaotic Christmas where the main event featured a successful EBPW Title defense as Tony Vargas defeated Marcus Lewis.

 

Also, it featured two amazing stars as Shotzi Blackheart defended her Women’s Title in No DQ match against Kikyo, who was an amazing interview on the Indy Mayhem Show a few weeks ago *cough* cheap plug *cough*.

 

But instead of that cheap plug, let’s be real Shotzi and Kikyo are going to go places in the next few years and you all should take note.

Now, it’s time for bed. Don’t worry, next week will be a very special episode. Trust me. Also, if you’re an indy promotion and you have a show this weekend, you’re strange and should be ashamed. BUT if you’re a wrestler performing this weekend, I will always support you and hope all goes well.

 

Until next time, we’ll see YOU around the Indys.
