Impact, Indies, and Insanity: Sept. 20, 2018 Night Thread

Your NFL Game of the Week of the Day is Jets/Browns.  College football’s appetizer game is Temple/Tulsa from the American Athletic.

Impact tonight features Austin Aries defending against Texano, Faby Apache appearing, and another name added to their Hall of Fame.

After the jump, your indies roundup.

Let’s look at some highlights from the week in independent wrestling!

  • GCW will be putting on Live Fast, Die Young in Asbury Park on Friday night.  Nick Gage defends the GCW title against Rich Swann, while Joey Janela continues his “I want to wrestle everyone I watched on TV” tour by facing Psicosis.
  • NOVA Pro is putting on their anniversary show, NOVA Project 4, Friday night in Fairfax, VA.  Logan Easton LaRoux and Alexander James meet in a Loser Leaves Town match, while the Powerbomb Independent Title is on the line when Tracy Williams defends against Jordynne Grace.  Plus, 2 Cold Scorpio will take on Arik Royal.  (I will be at this event working the show as crew.  If you’d like to learn more about this company, here’s a column I wrote discussing the best of NOVA Pro and a full card preview.)
  • Black Label Pro is back in Indiana with the Darkest Timeline Tournament on Saturday night, as 18 people square off in a series of scrambles with the winner getting (or retaining) the BLP championship.  Defending champion Grace will be in it, as will Jake Parnell, PCO, Tom Lawlor, Andrew Everett, and Kevin Ku among others.  In non-tournament action, Marko Stunt faces Hornswoggle (in what has to be a rib on one of them).
  • Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia sees CHIKARA’s next show, It Came From Beneath The Sink!  In the main event, Dasher Hatfield defends the CHIKARA title (on behalf of the injured Mark Angelosetti) against Travis Huckabee.
  • Sunday afternoon sees GALLI putting on a mostly-mystery show in Villa Park, IL.  The only announced match is their champion, Aero Boy, fighting for the AAA Title against Fenix.
  • Southern Underground Pro in Nashville will host Don’t Look on Sunday afternoon.  Dominic Garrini defends the SUP Bonestorm title against Wheeler YUTA, while Williams — assuming he’s still champion — will defend the Powerbomb title against Ku.

Bring the insanity, everyone!
