SFCW Crossroads Preview for Tomorrow Night in Monroe

From Charles Anschutz:

Southern Fried Wrestling returns with possibly the biggest show of the year in Georgia. Here's a preview of the night's matches.

First off there is a Five Way Double Jeopardy match. The participants include the "Approved Apprentice" Kenji Brea who is out to prove that Adrian Hawkins made the right decision in bringing him to the Approved much to the leader of the Jimmy Rave Approved Jimmy Rave himself. Then there's Ike Cross who is looking to make his mark on his own and out of the umbrella of the 13th Floor. Johnny Nixx looks to keep improving his stock in the company with a chance to break out of the pack. Both Aaron Epic and Slade Porter are unfamiliar to Southern Fried fans but have made their mark in Florida and are looking to expand their influence in Georgia. In this match there must two winners and they face off at the next Southern Fried in Covington on October 14 for a chance at the Phase 1 Trophy holder Brian Kane (who still hasn't cashed in his title shot).

SWA Deep South Results from Pavo on September 16

The night’s show began with General Manager Blaze making his way to the ring and announcing that over the last month, management had been behind the scenes making some changes. The first of these was that NWA Southeastern, for the foreseeable future would now be known simply as SWA Deep South, a subsidiary of the Southeastern Wrestling Association.

He then noticed that Mason Price, the man he’d just suspended indefinitely was sitting in the crowd. He reminded him that he was not allowed at the event. However, Mason produced a ticket and stated that he was a paying member of the crowd and there was nothing Blaze could do about that.

“The Remedy” Will Hall then introduced to the ring…SWA Deep South Senior Referee Kyle Dubbya. Dubbya stepped into the ring and began to recant the events of the end of the last show in Pavo just one month ago. He said that Mason had held back his father and forced him to watch while he assaulted Dubbya…on his father’s birthday no less.

Dubbya continued by saying that he was proud of his body of work in this business, but he could not allow himself or his family to be put in that predicament again. He stated that while he could wrestle Price…he did not have Mason’s training…and would not be stupid enough to step in the ring with Mason.

So, with a heavy heart…he told Price and the people of Pavo that after he refereed the main event on that night, he would be stepping down as SWA Deep South Senior Referee.

This was met with elation and a goodbye chant from Mason. As Dubbya began to leave to a chorus of fans telling him to reconsider, Kyle was met with the arrival of…”Flash ‘n’ Cash” Hayden Price coming from the entrance way.

He began laughing and fake crying about Dubbya’s announcement. He then stated that if he had been there a month prior, he would have made sure that Dubbya did not return.

He turned his attention to the thorn in his side known as Effy. He said that he would no longer be giving Effy anymore Title chances. He said that Effy would need to start at the bottom and climb the proverbial “ladder” to get to him again. He said that this would start later tonight.

Suddenly, he was cut-off by the arrival of…The Hardway Brothers. They reminded Mason that last month they’d attempted to injure them and send them into early retirement. They said they wanted revenge…and that they would do anything they had to do to get their hands on the Deep South Tag Team Champions!

Once the ring was cleared, the first match was announced to be a tag team match. The two teams would be Ryan Phoenix & “Delicious” Don Yoder taking on the Knightmare Syndicates’ Aiden & Alexander Knight. Aiden looked to have the match won, but Ryan was able to duck a kick from Knight. Phoenix then pushed Aiden into his brother Alexander. Aiden was able to stop himself short of hitting Alex, but Yoder quickly pulled Alex off the apron. With the momentary distraction of Aiden & Referee David Lee, Phoenix was able to hit a low blow for the illegitimate but decisive win on this occasion.

The next match of the evening was set to be a fatal 4-way match with no disqualifications. This match was to help determine the #1 contender for the Deep South Cruiserweight Championship, currently held by Re-Genesis member Hunter Law. The matches participants included Bred 4 War members Chris Spyder & Fatality, “The #1 Stunnuh” Dark Rage, and “The PopStar” Johnny Romano. B4W banded together to try and show dominance, but Rage & Romano worked together to fend them off. However, Johnny quickly turned on Rage, telling him that he wanted to win to get the Title he felt he never should have lost. Following finisher after finisher, it was Johnny hitting Rage with the Pop Drop. Before he could make the pin, though, Hayden Price ran down and knocked Johnny to the mat. Price then dragged the lifeless body of…Spyder on top for Rage for the win. As the referee struggled to get Chris to his feet and raise his arm, the other 3 men in the match looked on in much the same bewilderment as Spyder did.

The third match of the night saw Ox Haney, the undisputed SWA Heavyweight Champion, defending against a very familiar opponent in Street Bandit. Early on, it was clear that Bandit planned to use his handcuffs and use his regular dirty tactics. However, Haney found them hiding in a turnbuckle pad and had them taken from ringside. Street was not happy with this and proceeded to try and take down Haney by working and debilitating the arm the Champion uses to perform his Never Wake Up Finisher. Ox fought back, attempted one NWU but was unable to get the pin because of using his already injured arm. After a bit more damage to Haney’s arm, the defending Champion was finally able to hit the NWU and used the good arm to roll up Bandit for the win.

In what could be called a wrestling clinic, the masked sensation known as Lucha Locura took on a true professional of wrestling, Santos. Locura used his quick thinking and speed to take the early advantage. However, Santos was able to gain the upper hand, slowing things down and going after the leg of Locura. Santos used a plethora of maneuvers to try and take out the leg of Locura, but somehow Lucha was able to hit an amazing superkick to a seated Santos. He then gingerly picked up Santos and was able to hit the Locura Driver for the win.

The scheduled main event was set to be “The Feminist Icon” Effy in his first match on a quest to get another Title shot at Hayden Price. His first opponent: Zane Stevens. Stevens’ plan was to make this night a long one for the Weapon of Sass Destruction. The two men went back and forth, taking the battle and showing why both men had received numerous Title opportunities in promotions all over the southeast. As Effy attempted his rainmaker boot, Zane countered and attempted to reverse it. However, it was Effy who reversed it again and was able to successfully connect with his rainmaker boot for the win.

As Referee Dubbya helped Eff to his feet and raised his hand in victory, tears began to fall as the realization came that this was really going to be Dubbya’s last match refereeing for the good people of Pavo. The two shared an embrace as the crowd in attendance began to chant “Please Don’t Go” as Dubbya waved to the crowd and headed out of the ring to give Effy his moment of victory.

As Effy stood in the ring, though, he was attacked from behind by…Mason Price?! As he began waylaying Effy with the chair, the Hardway Brothers emerged from the curtain and Mason scurried out of the ring. He was soon joined by fellow Re-Genesis member Hayden Price.

Dillinger & Marcus grabbed the mic and told Mason that the beating and sneak attacks…and attempts to injure anyone, not in Re-Genesis…was going to stop! With that, they challenged Mason to face them…right then and right there!

Mason said that he was suspended and that Hayden had been given the night off. So, they were leaving and there was nothing to be proven by them.

As they began to leave, General Manager Blaze came out and told them…once again…that he was in charge…not them. He said that with his stake in SWA, overseeing divisions in Florida, Georgia, & Alabama, he was going to have to delegate some of his duties. He continued by saying that he felt the decision of what to do with the Hardways and Mason Price would be the perfect way for the new SWA Deep South commissioner he’d appointed to introduce himself and enforce his new power.

With that, music began to fill the arena as the Pavo faithful awaited the arrival of the new commissioner. Finally, a figure backs out of the curtain and revealed himself to be…Kyle Dubbya?!

The crowd erupted as the Hardways celebrated in the ring and Mason Price began the stomp the ground and look away unable to believe what had just transpired.

Dubbya stepped in the ring and reminded Mason of what he’d said earlier in the night. He’d said that some would like and dislike his decision…and he saw Price’s reaction when he came out and knew Mason was not happy.

He was reminded that Mason was suspended so he could not wrestle that night. Dubbya agreed…then said that he would just have to lift Mason’s suspension! He then said that if Mason refused to wrestle tonight…not only would he be stripped of the belt…but he would be banished from Deep South…forever!

Mason, with no other options, & Hayden stepped into the ring and began to battle with the Hardway Brothers. After somehow getting the upper hand, Mason & Hayden proceeded to literally “bury” the Hardways in a sea of steel chairs.

Finally, Effy led the locker room, both bad & good, to the ring to run the Re-Genesis members out of the ring. He then told them that the locker room was united…against Re-Genesis…and would no longer allow them to do whatever they want to whomever they want whenever they wanted! He continued by saying if they showed their faces in Pavo again…they would have to deal…with all of them!

As the show came to a close, the final moments saw the Hardways saying that they wanted to end this…in any match…to finally get the Deep South Tag Team Champions in a match and Commissioner Dubbya telling them to follow him to go see what they could do.

What will happen to Re-Genesis now that the locker room members, both bad & good, are now united against Re-Genesis?

How will Re-Genesis respond to Effy’s proclamation?

Will the Hardway Brothers finally get their match with Mason Price & Tony Storm?

We may not know until the next time SWA Deep South returns to the Peacock Center.

However, SWA Hybrid will return to Midland City, AL Saturday night, September 23rd.

The stars of SWA will be out on that night. Will you?!

6.) CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion TREVOR LEE def. "THE MONSTER" ABYSS in a Monster's Ball to retain the championship.

Throughout the bout, Anderson's team constantly interfered with gatekeeper JAMES J. DILLON, including at one point preventing Mecha Mercenary from entering the cage for several minutes. Toward the bout's conclusion, the Dawsons physically forced the cage door open and attempted to lock Sterling's partners out of the cage, creating a 4 on 1 against Sterling. Sterling's partners turned the tide against Royal and the Dawsons and with C.W. Anderson potentially facing a 4 on 1 disadvantage, it was Dillon himself who slammed the cage door shut and locked out Anderson's partners instead.

After the bout, JJ Dillon entered the cage to congratulate the winning team and suggested that Sterling himself be added to the Modern Vintage Wrestling Championship bout taking place at Showcase of Champions during WrestleCade weekend making the scheduled triple threat match a fatal four way. Modern Vintage officials quickly adhered to the request and officially added Chet Sterling to the bout.

All Time Great Passes Away

From Larry Goodman:

Bobby Heenan passed away today at the age of 72. He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2002 and struggled with serious health issues for the rest of his life.

The Chicago native is widely regarded as one of the greatest manager of all time. Heenan broke into the business in the mid 60s as a manager in Chicago and Indianapolis for Dick the Bruiser's WWA under the name "Pretty Boy" Bobby Heenan. He was a brash young punk, a prolific talker. His long platinum blonde hair was automatic heat.

His television interviews were what made me a wrestling fan.

Heenan also wrestled and was a tremendous bumper. He bled frequently and had the scars on his forehead to prove it.

Heenan's teams (Randy Savage's father Angelo Poffo & Chris Markoff and a poor man's version of the Assassins) were embroiled in feuds with Bruiser and Crusher. He played a pivotal role in Blackjack Lanza's transformation from regional mid-card babyface to main event heel with a national reputation.

Heenan moved on to the AWA where he was known as "Bobby the Brain". Heenan managed AWA Tag Team Champions Nick Bockwinkel and Ray Stevens and The Blackjacks (Mulligan & Lanza). He also managed Bockwinkel during his reign as AWA Heavyweight Champion.

Heenan and Bockwinkel came into Georgia for Georgia Championship Wrestling in 1979 as part of a worked storyline in which Heenan was suspended from the AWA. Heenan also managed "Killer" Karl Kox, with whom he had great chemistry, before returning to the AWA where he stayed until signing with the WWF in 1984. Heenan is said to have honored his contract in finishing up out of respect to Verne Gagne and may have been the only departing talent to do so.

PCW Sacred Ground: Chapter 8 Report from Porterdale

From Larry Goodman:

“Sometimes fairy tales don’t come true.”

-PCW booker Matt Hankins 

Some did and most definitely did not at Sacred Ground: Chapter 8, Platinum Championship Wrestling’s quintessential event of the year. 

The dream come true was Bill the Butcher defeating Gunner Miller to end his one-year reign and hand Miller only his third loss of 2017. 

With the exception of Sacred Ground 1, the foundation of all of the annual Sacred Ground events has been PCW’s core roster and the compelling nature of their long-arcing stories. That has been increasingly true the past two years with few non-PCW regulars on the card. 

It was a gorgeous night for wrestling at the historic Porterdale Memorial Gym, which is an awesome outdoor venue that provides a dramatic backdrop for the proceedings and there was plenty of drama to be had. Attendance was 225, about the same as last year. 

Great wrestling was not what Sacred Ground 8 will be remembered for. It was more a matter of the matches being good enough to serve as vehicles for compelling stories.
