I love straight up wrestling that is as serious as it can possibly be, while still being professional wrestling. I love good “story lines” but if you can’t do them well, then I’d rather see fewer of them, and very few seem capable of doing them well. I love Ring of Honor, and New Japan pro wrestling more than any other, because they don’t give you anything too over the top, too unbelievable, or silly, and they don’t have many “characters” that make you shake your head and wonder if we are in the 1980’s WWF all over again. I go to a lot of independent wrestling shows, and while I almost always enjoy something they have to offer, I often find cringe-worthy matches, gimmicks, angles, and characters as well. In an attempt to try and “draw” every kind and type of fan, promoters want to put on a show that consists of every kind and type of wrestler and wrestling match you’ve ever heard of or seen. Instead of simply appealing to “pro wrestling” fans, they want to appeal to some “casual” market that will come see a wrestling show to laugh, or to even mock, or to sing along by following the bouncing little ball, etc. etc. Too often you get two or three matches with guys that are so green you’d think they’d never been trained. Then you’ve got the local guys that get on a show because they sold three dozen tickets to buddies and family members. I’ve bemoaned all the stuff in the past and if you’re even vaguely familiar with WDR, you know what we are all about. Well, tomorrow, Saturday June 6th you can actually come SEE what we are all about!
Legacy Wrestling makes their debut at In The Net Sports Complex, in Palmyra, Pa. just down the road from Hershey, Pa. In the Net is a tremendous venue for professional wrestling. The indoor double soccer field looks like a minor Astrodome of sorts, and Legacy’s presentation will simply be all the better in such a building. Add to that fact that every performer on this card is a serious as can be, straight up, majorly athletic, professional wrestler, and you have the makings for a major event. You definitely have the makings for a total display of what I call “Wrestling Done Right!”
The opening match ups, or “undercard” are so good that I hate labeling them as such. The former Hungarian Heavyweight champion, and former UWE United States Champion, and current FSW Heavyweight Champion, Laszlo Arpad, managed by Miss Brianna, will be challenged by long time indy veteran Gran Akuma in a falls count anywhere match! Seriously, how does one call this an undercard match? Some will have to be prepared to inform the Palmyra Police department that this is just a wrestling match going on, as I am sure the ruckus will be so bad they may indeed be called. Then we’ve got The Massive Blood Bound Warriors, Greywolf and The Red Scorpion, taking on multiple tag team title holding Team CK, where the winners will advance to the third Legacy card, to battle the winners of another tag match, that will be on the second Legacy card, winners becoming the first ever Legacy Tag Team Champions! So on the “undercard” we’ve got an insane falls count anywhere match, as well as a number one contender match up for the Legacy tag team championship!
Then we’ve got our first Legacy Wrestling Women’s champion being determined in a match between the tough as nails Kimber Lee, and the agile and quick Hania the Howling Huntress! These two are absolutely two of the greatest female workers on the indy scene today, and both could honestly hold their own against any man on the card. Anytime these two face off it’s special, but here we’ve got a title on the line! This match could honestly main event just about anywhere.
Finally, a tournament to crown the first ever Legacy Wrestling Champion! Everyone who is anyone that’s not been scooped up by Triple H for WWE’s NXT brand is in this tournament. Winners of their match, advance to a Fatal Four Way match against PJ Black (formally Justin Gabriel of WWE fame)! JT Dunn will battle AR Fox, these two have faced off a few other times in different parts of the Country and every fan that’s seen one of these match ups are still raving about it. David Starr battles Shane Strickland in a personal battle the two are waging all over the Country. Friends, and work out buddies, these two have recently gotten in each other’s way on their way to the top. This tournament matchup is personal! Then we’ve got two of the hottest new comers on the scene today in Joey Janella and Eddie Smooth! Many veterans have squared off with these two guys and have walked away with one in their loss column. Both men are frequently labeled “show stealer's” so what will happen when they square off for a chance to advance to the Legacy Wrestling Championship match? PJ Black (aka Justin Gabriel) hasn’t been shy in regard to this match either. He’s told me personally that I need to refer to him as “King of the Indies” and that he is “the biggest risk taker in all of indy wrestling!” None of these comments sit well with the six men fighting to get into the final with him, nor does the idea of him getting a bye just because of where he came from. Whichever three men win their matches, to wind up in the final against Black, it’s going to be absolutely unbelievable.
This is my last ditch effort to get you to come to this show. You will be witnessing wrestling history as I am completely confident that Legacy Wrestling is going to be a new standard bearer. I am certain this is the beginning of something really, really, special. I promise you that “history will be made as Legacy’s are laid!”
