Thursday Night Discussion

Not much news today.  So let’s get into the wrestling roundup.  If you want to attend a big show this weekend, here are the highlights:

  • AIW is holding their signature event, Absolution, on Friday night in Cleveland.  Joey Janela and Tim Donst have a ladder match, Dominic Garrini and Tom Lawlor have a Dog Collar Match, and in the main event, Nick Gage defends the AIW title against Tracy Williams.
  • Freelance Wrestling in Boston is hosting the Wet Hot American Supershow on Friday night, with talent from all around the East Coast.  The main event is Isaiah Velazquez defending the Freelance title against Darin Corbin in a 2 out of 3 falls match.
  • PCW Ultra will emanate out of Wilmington CA on Friday night with Sound the Alarm.  Highlights are ACH against Dragon Lee and a main event of Penta El 0M teaming with WARBEAST against OVE in an “All Violence Is Legal” match.
  • CHIKARA runs “Egg Monsters from Mars” out of the Wrestle Factory on Saturday afternoon.  J.F. de Coronado defends the gold against Solo Darling, while Mark Angelosetti faces David Starr.

  • NOVA Pro’s Harlem Nights is on Saturday night from Fairfax (outside Washington DC).  Timothy Thatcher faces Jonathan Gresham, while Gage and Donst will square off in a street fight.
  • Alpha-1 hosts The Purge from Hamilton ON Sunday afternoon.  Rickey Shane Page has an open challenge for the big gold, while Alex Daniels faces Zachary Wentz — and as the show is called The Purge, every single match is no-DQ.

Impact Wrestling tonight is all about the fallout from Slammiversary.  The only announced match is Matt Sydal’s Contractual Rematch(tm) against Brian Cage.
