Southern Fried Report from Monroe on August 18

From Larry Goodman:

Southern Fried Championship Wrestling ran their first show at their new digs in Monroe, the Boys and Girls Club. Any way you slice it, Southern Fried is a promotion on fire. 

Everything booker Todd Sexton touches turns golden. The matches got the job done in fine fashion up and down the card, however the brilliance of this show was in the storytelling. Three must see matches were set up for return date of September 1.
This is an old school presentation in synch with a fan base that wants to believe. They love their heroes and hate their villains.

Phase 1 Champion Bobby Moore is positioned for the babyface run of his career, one that would have been unthinkable until a beautifully executed slow turn away from the iron grip of Adrian Hawkins and The Approved.

Ike Cross is the Heavyweight Champion with athleticism and charisma to burn.

Jacob Ashworth is way over as the consummate everyman…and the surprise return of a former SFCW Champion received an epic pop.

The booking keeps intense heat on them at all times with despicable heels like Hawkins, Corey Hollis and JB Enterprises leading the charge.

The roster has improved and expanded that Sexton can move people in an out of the lineup to keep things fresh and still count on having good matches. And the roster continues to grow as new undercard guys are consistently getting over, Marcus Kross being a case in point.

Paid attendance was 258. The size of Southern Fried’s core audience has definitely been raised. Last night’s crowd would have been ridiculously hot in any venue. They never let up all night long. The gym at the Boys and Girls Club is one of the loudest venues I’ve ever been in. The decibel level reached deafening proportions.

Amidst the accolades, there are areas that could stand improvement. The loudness of the space is a blessing and a curse. The extreme echoes make it difficult to understand the promos. The Codebreaker, which was to play an important role in the main event, was used for near falls in multiple undercard matches. While the ringwork is remarkably better than the Southern Fried of yesteryear, match quality rarely reach the level sometimes seen at AWE, Anarchy or ACTION.

The Carnies decided to extend a challenge to The Hierarchy making this match contested under “No Rules” in which they agreed. This match was all over the place with the two teams brawling outside of the ring as well as in, but it was The Hierarchy that came out on top with the help of their manager Slade Porter who used the VPW Tag Team Championship Titles as a weapon to help secure the win for the team. After the match, The Carnies received a standing ovation from the VPW fans with various chants including “Please Come Back”

Hexx defeated Chip Day in a Steel Cage Match to retain the VPW Heavyweight Championship

(Chip made his way to the ring, followed by Hexx who entered on a motorcycle which received a huge pop from the fans.

After the match, former GM of VPW James Kitchens and Damoan Rashad came out to congratulate former fellow Rapture member on his victory, or so everyone thought.

Anarchy Wrestling Report from Cornelia on August 11

From Bill Behrens:

Anarchy "Hype" on FITE TV taping 8/11/18 Report

Paid attendance 120

Show opened with "Hands Up" as Marcus Kross and Griff Garrison, still on crutches, came to the ring. Kross said he had good and bad news. Bad news was that he and Seth Delay, the new Anarchy Tag Team champions would not be able to defend their titles. He then said the good news was that the reason they could not was Seth Delay was a new father and was home with his wife and new baby. The crowd responded giving Delay a strong ovation that was interrupted by GB1C (Josh Wolverton & Tyler Rivera) who said that Kross look ready to wrestle and both tried to hit the hit and attack Kross who fought back with strikes and kicks on both men both inside and outside the ring. After a dive as Kross went to get back in ring his foot was grabbed and GB1C took over two on one while the injured Garrison watched at ringside unable to help. GB1C hit a double team elevated curb stomp on Kross and was about to hit another when Sal Rinauro, who had been visiting backstage, hit the ring. GB1C left the ring quickly as Rinauro and Garrison check on Kross.

Georgia Premier Wrestling Report from Canton on August 11

From Larry Goodman:

Georgia Premier Wrestling returned to action at the Canton Village Shopping Center for their second to last event at the venue. GPW’s run at their new home is ending after just four months.

It was easy to why GPW owners Woody Hullender and Darrell Morris were excited about the new building. The air conditioning, lights, sound and video wall made it a clear upgrade from their former home at the Old Buffington School Gym. 

However, building owner Gary Lamb subsequently decided to start his own promotion with Dylan Frymyer (aka Sunny Daze) as booker, running on alternate  weekends to GPW.  Hullender and Morris decided it was not GPW’s best interest to stay on. Lamb's Southern Honor Wrestling debuts on October 6.

GPW returns to the Old Buffington School Gym in September. The final GPW show at the current venue is August 25. QT Marshall's 1FW hosts the Dusty Rhodes Scholarship event at the building on Sunday, the 26th with Cody and Brandi Rhodes on hand.

The friction between GPW and Frymyer and company extends beyond the venue issue in Canton. In May, GPW announced an Arn Anderson Homecoming show for October 13 in Rome at the Coosa Valley Fairgrounds. In July, a group that includes Shawn Holcomb, Phil Hefner and Frymyer announced a September 22 return of the Superstars of Wrestling Fanfest to Rome after a two year hiatus. 

The Superstars of Wrestling event at the Rome Forum is headlined by the Young Bucks and boasts a roster of legends that blows away the GPW event. 

The latest development is GPW's  booking of “Nature Boy” Paul Lee for the Anderson show. Lee had previously been aligned with the SOS group.

Back to last night, the show was fine. New GPW tag team champions were crowned. Cody Vance earned a shot at GPW Champion QT Marshall. It was rough night for Logan Chase III. His champions lost both of their matches and he suffered the indignation of being locked in a cage.

Attendance was a healthy 240. The crowd was into the show but not super loud. The  acoustic ceiling tiles tend to suck up the sound.

WrestleMerica Postpones Event Citing Licensure Issue

From Larry Goodman:

WrestleMerica has postponed their Back 2 School Kids Appreciation Night event tomorrow in Barnesville due to a licensure issue that the company is in process of resolving. The event has been rescheduled for September 8.

The postponement came just 48 hours before WrestleMerica was scheduled to run head-to-head with the Universal Championship Wrestling event in Barnesville at Lamar County High School, located two miles away from Wrestlemerica's home base at the Academy Gym. 

WrestleAmerica's license to promote (under Gulf Coast Championship Wrestling) is expired. The company's renewal paperwork is awaiting the next meeting of the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission for approval.

Since 2001, Georgia law has required wrestling promotions to pay a $100 annual fee for licensure to the GAEC, the state agency responsible for regulating professional boxing, MMA and professional wrestling. 

WrestleMerica was offering free admission to kids under 12, a $100 cash prize for one lucky fan and a call from Rob Van Dam for another contest winner.
