Puerto Rican Wrestling News & Notes

From Alfred Feliciano:

Ever since WWC Puerto Rico's Euphoria 2017's final night live from the Mayaguez Sportatorium in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico this past January. World Wrestling Council has been upside down since "Mr.Raytings" Ray Gonzales turned his back on the faithful fans forming "El Sindicato" (The Syndicate) with former WWC World Tag Team champions: La Revolucion, newly crowned WWC Puerto Rican Champion: "El Judas" Mike Mendoza along with "Pretty Boy" Orlando Toledo has been on a tear and as we are heading to WWC' local and big events especially later this year with the upcoming 44th Anniversary Show, the founders and owners; former 20 time WWC Universal Champion and WWE Hall of Fame member 2014: Carlos Colon and Victor Jovica will have a huge problem on their hands, it is true Gonzales has 16 percent stock of WWC, which means the changes are coming even with a newly upcoming tournament to crown a new WWC Universal Champion coming soon. these videos on what Gonzales has done will prove it.

Odinson wasn't medically cleared due to the controversial eye injury suffered at the innocent (?) hands of Jimmy Rave on February 4 show, while Phase One Champion Damien Bennett worked the PCW show in Porterdale.

Platinum Championship wrestling continues to sell out and excite each time they have a show in Porterdale. The crowd was hot, the matches were hot, and it seemed all involved had a great time. Matt Hankins has really cemented his role in the post Stephen Platinum era, and the fans owe a lot to him for the continued success and excitement buzzing around PCW so far in 2017.

Southern Fried Championship Wrestling Report from Monroe on February 18

From Larry Goodman:

Southern Fried Championship Wrestling finds itself in an ironic state of affairs.

Former weaknesses have become strengths.

The pacing and flow of last night's show were nothing short of stellar. No stinker matches in the undercard and for that matter, no stinkers at all. Every match and segment tied into the big picture. Two of the top stars (Jagged Edge and Jeremiah) had to be scratched from the advertised card without discernable ill effects on the show.

To my way of thinking, the overall quality of the current SFCW product is better than it has ever been, but the departure of the wildly popular AJ Steele left a hole in the top babyface spot that has yet to be filled. There is no escaping the fact the shows at Nowell Rec Center aren’t drawing nearly as well as in the past. Attendance last night was 130. 
“Truth or Consequences” had the nuanced booking of a Peachstate show minus the vociferous Peachstate crowd.

Todd Sexton’s is more linear and less of a mad scientist than Rick Michaels but they have a lot in common when it comes to attending to details and putting talent in positions to succeed.

Sexton is making his mark on a number of fronts. Rave Approved have come from nowhere to become the top heel act. Brock Enterprises is being portrayed as a serious force while still retaining the entertainment value of Drew Blood’s zany comedy. The presentation of some of the undercard talent being revamped. The secondary title has become radically more meaningful. By combining the Cruiserweight Cup and Monroe City title into the Phase One Championship, SFCW rid itself of an excess title and made Phase One a clear path to the heavyweight title. The gimmick is that one successful defense of the Phase One title earns the champion a shot at the SFCW heavyweight title.
