Around The Indys! – The Final 3 Count

ATI8

Have good turkey? Want to talk about turkey? Want to talk about wrestling while talking about turkey? Well, you came to the right place! It’s now time for EVERYONE to go Around The Indys!

 

Let’s begin at our (well, if you live in Pennsylvania) friendly neighborhood federation, Absolute Intense Wrestling is first up with their Hell on Earth! The lineup alone had a list of great superstars of the the present and future of this company going toe-to-toe (as they always do). Mike Tolar started off the night defeating Hot Young Briley, while Louis Lyndon was successful in a 4-way that featured PB Smooth, Eric Ryan and Eddie Kingston! Ethan Page shocked the World (unless you’re in Ethan Page’s world) as he took on AND BEAT “The Machine” Brian Cage!

 

Oh, and some guy named “Zack Sabre Jr.” defeated Dominic Garrini. He’s going to be good some day.

 

As for the title matches, the referee stopped the match and declared Shayna Baszler the winner against Heidi Lovelace and successfully defended her AIW Women’s Title.

 

The AIW Tag Team titles were successfully defended as Crazy Pain defeated the former champs The Jolleyville Fuck-Its. Also, Alex Daniels successfully defended his AIW Intense championship against Laredo Kid with…some..uh…help(?) from Gregory Iron.

And in an epic match, Josh Prohibition defeated the equally talented Tim Donst to retain his AIW Absolute Title.

 

 

A fantastic weekend at Winston-Salem, North Carolina came to an end as the Queens of Combat took center stage.

 

In a huge upset, Taelor Hendrix LOST her Queen of Combat championship to the highly talented Su Yung and, let’s be honest, we’re going to see a lot more from those two talented wrestlers in the upcoming months, if not years.

Leva Bates and Solo Darling also had an amazing win against The Sexy Young Caramels (which is an amazing tag team name for the team of Devyn Nicole and Savannah Evans) and another great tag team Deoanna Purrazzo and Kelly Klein defeated ANOTHER pretty awesome tag team name AND partners, The D and D Muscle Factory (D’Arcy Dixon and Miss Diss Lexia).

 

It’s so amazing to see these amazing ladies do amazing things in front of an absolute packed house waiting to see THEM and wanting to see what they are going to do as professional wrestlers.

 

I thank ladies like Deonna, D’Arcy, Jade, Thunderkitty, Leva Bates, Su Yung, Taeler Hendrix and other ladies to show that it’s not a publicity stunt when people say “Women’s Revolution” because, well, it starts here…with independent wrestling to get to the point where they’re treated with respect.

And finally, we need to look at WrestleCade one more time. For, you see, they had their last show last weekend and, well, they went out with a bang. They ended WrestleCade with The Final 3 Count. CW Anderson, Steve Corino, Crazzy Steve, Eddie Edwards, Tessa Blanchard, Rachael Ellering, Veda Scott, Gunner, Drew Galloway, PJ Black, Gangrel, Jimmy Valiant, Lodi, Mr. Hughes, Ricky Morton, Rockstar Spud, Shane Douglas, The Blue Meanie, Jeff Jarrett, Luke Hawx, BJ Whitmer, Matt Cross, Ricochet, Shane Strickland, Juventud Guerrera, Sonjay Dutt, SONNY FRIGGIN’ ONOO and GEORGE SOUTH! That’s a stacked card already and I haven’t even told you about the main event.

WrestleCade’s Final 3 Count in the Final 3 Count featured WrestleCade’s champion successfully defended his title against…”THE BIG GUY” Ryback!

They legit tore the roof off the place. Like, seriously. I mean, the names I just named are the top names in wrestling’s past, present and future and they all came one more time to WrestleCade and didn’t disappoint.

George South won his own damn battle royal! That’s amazing! Matt Cross, Ricochet and Shane Strickland beat a team that had Juvi, Caleb Konley and Sonjay Dutt (WHICH WAS MANAGED BY SONNY ONOO!), NICK PATRICK WAS THERE TO REF THE CARLITO v. JEFF JARRETT MATCH! Just amazing moments!

So from everyone here at IndyWrestling.US, thank you WrestleCade for bringing amazing matches and amazing moments to the amazing fans that came out to see you last week, last month and last year and best wishes to everyone who put WrestleCade together.

Around The Indys (10/2/16) – One Word Mania!

CaptureATI4

Come one, come all! It’s time to strap in tight and take a trip around the Indys. I am your tour guide, Rizz, and our first stop will be in LaSalle, Illinois and at DREAMWAVE Wrestling, where they had their 99th show EVER, Hardcore Halloween.

And the main event of the evening had DREAMWAVE Champion, Prince Mustafa Ali defending his title against Mr. 450. Cody Rhodes defeated the highly talented AR Fox (I would love to see that match, by the way. Big fan of both guys and am kind of jealous). Also, ECW Legend Little Guido defeated, in a slight upset, Joey Ryan. Ariya Daivari defeated Arik Cannon.

Let’s continue in one word federations and go to BELIEVE! In the main event, Rhett Giddins successfully defended his SCW Florida Heavyweight Championship against both Josh Hess and Mike Reed in a three way match. Thea Trinidad was there and successfully took on Raquel, as well. Then Teddy Sigma defeated Li Bryan.

 

What? You want ANOTHER ONE WORD WRESTLING COMPANY?! WELL, HERE YOU GO! IT’S BEYOND WRESTLING! I just realized that there are a lot of one word wrestling promotions…and they ALL were on this weekend.

Beyond Wrestling had two events in one night, the first one was called Midas Touch and featured a main event that featured John Silver defeating Michael Elgin in a one-on-one match. Then, Joey Janela and Jonathan Gresham made ME wish I was in Somerville, Massachusetts because, well, that match alone looked like a main event.

 

 

OR! How about the ending to the Deonna Purrazzo and Sonya Strong match?! OR HOW ABOUT TESSA BLANCHARD DEFEATING RICOCHET?!  ROH’S WAR MACHINE DEFEATING DA HIT SQUAD! This is a stacked card! Stacked! And there was another show on after that!

The American Destroyers (Donovan Dijak and Mikey Webb) defeated Heidi Lovelace and Kimber Lee (which are an amazing pair, by the way and I would love to see more of that team). Also, Jordynne Grace defeated Nevaeh and in the main event Keith Lee defeated Brian Milonas.

Also, Beyond Wrestling needs saved (again). They have started a GoFundMe page. I’ve personally watched many YouTube videos sitting in Pittsburgh, PA thinking to myself that Beyond Wrestling looks like a unique wrestling venue and The Armory  looks like it was made to be for Beyond Wrestling. That place is always filled to the gills and now thanks to Donovan Dijak, we won’t be able to hear!

Right now, they have $895 of their $1,900 goal on the first day and still need your help in getting a new soundboard and, well, it’s Dijak’s fault…but you’re going to help him pay for an expensive cup of water so he can throw it at another sound board. And we will see YOU right back here going around the Indys!
