From Scott Hensley:

A catch up report from a couple of weekends ago – I went to nearby TWE in the Red Bank area of Chattanooga to see some young and hungry guys competing in some good looking match ups back on 1/7/17.

The event started on time and began with fan favorite Jaden Newman announcing that he will be going after Chris Crunk’s TWE Championship. “King” Bailey Blake w/ Roger Cantrell came to the ring and claimed that Jaden had to go through him to get that title shot. They agreed to a #1 contender’s match to take place on January 21.

1) Black Diamond d. Chris Styles by pinfall in 5:57 after a cutter

Why We Wrestle Report from Cornelia on January 14

From Why We Wrestle:

(1) "Wild" Billy Buck defeated Supernatural.

Post match Buck said he knew Gladiator Jeremiah wasn't there (he was booked for ROH) but he knew Supernatural was his little buddy and he was going show Gladiator what happens when you cross Billy Buck. Buck took off his belt and brutalized Supernatural. He then said he wasn't finished because only cowards hid behind masks...and he UNMASKED the popular Luchador. Buck then went back to the lashing when the Mighty Odinson arrived! Buck conveniently​ decided he was finished making his point. Odinson stared a hole through him as he checked on the fallen Supernatural. It did not appear his face was seen in full but there was some buzz that a few fans caught a glimpse. Odinson was already scheduled next so announcer Michael Gentry gave him a formal intro and brought out his opponent the debuting Sam Cooper.

Jeff Jarrett: Ain't I Great or Great, I Ain't? Depends on How YOU Look At it.

From Velvet Jones:

The reach of pro wrestling has always been amazing. Even without television, wrestling matches were contested all over the world. Pro wrestling’s first World championship came as a result of the European Greco-Roman heavyweight champion defeating American champion Tom Jenkins. I (@Velvet 478) grew up in New Jersey, so my wrestling diet consisted of a healthy dose of the World Wrestling Federation. Shows would populate the weekend on Fox 5 and WWOR-TV (Channel 9). Cable television came into play and that allowed me to watch wrestling from other places. One of my favorites to watch was World Class Championship Wrestling. The legendary Texas-based fed was easily dominated by The Von Erichs. But somewhere in the mid-card, there were matches being contested by a chubby bearded guy named Eric Embry and a young blonde kid.

That kid was Jeff Jarrett. He and Embry went back-and-forth for the WCCW Light-Heavyweight championship. And even then, I didn’t know that Jarrett would have such a long career in wrestling. I have followed his career since then and seen almost every change he has gone through. Memorable Jarrett moment for me include the time he got carried out of an arena on the shoulders of his fellow wrestlers after having his arm broken by Robert Fuller’s baseball bat, his awesome performance in a losing effort against Shawn Michaels for his Intercontinental title, setting a record for I-C title wins (which has since been broken by Chris Jericho), and his controversial time in World Championship Wrestling. It might be a bitter pill for WWE to swallow, but Jarrett was wrestling’s original third-generation superstar.On paper, his accomplishments are amazing. Of his 77 championship runs, 10 of those are universally-recognized World championship wins. But just like everything else in the latter part of Jarrett’s career, those things have come under major scrutiny. Some say Jarrett becoming WCW champion was the beginning of the end for the company. One of Jarrett’s reigns was ended by actor David Arquette. His six NWA World title runs occurred as co-owner of the company. Most saw it as a cheap way to make himself a World champion.
