Impact, Indies, and Insanity: November 8, 2018

Impact’s show tonight is the Zero Hour TV special.  Johnny Impact defends the main gold against Killer Kross, while Brian Cage puts the X Division title on the line against Sami Callihan.  Plus, the debut of Jordynne Grace.

Your NFL Game of the Week of the Day is Carolina/Pittsburgh.  The college football appetizer is Wake Forest against NC State.

After the jump, the weekend in wrestling.

Folks, there’s a LOT of great independent wrestling action all over the dang place.  Let’s break it down!

  • MLW is doing a supercard in Chicago tonight, in what I believe will become a TV taping.  Low Ki defends the main gold against Shane Strickland, two no-DQ matches in PCO vs Brody King and Sami Callihan vs Tom Lawlor, and the Lucha Bros defend the tag straps against LA Park and his son!
  • CMLL’s weekly lucha show Super Viernes is once again available for viewing tomorrow night.  Your main event is Barbario Cavernario, El Terrible, and Rush against Caristico, Volador Jr, and Angel de Oro!
  • NEW in Poughkeepsie, New York, has the Redemption card for tomorrow night.  Rey Fenix tackles Kenny Omega, while a WWE style showcase match features Rob Van Dam facing Jack Swagger!
  • Rev Pro is in York Hall tomorrow night for the Uprising show!  Tomohiro Ishii defends the big belt against David Starr, while WALTER faces Satoshi Kojima and Aussie Open tangle with Minoru Suzuki and Zack Sabre Jr!
  • AAW is in LaSalle, Illinois (near Chicago, I believe) for their Legact show on Saturday night.  Trevor Lee puts the Heritage belt on the line against Rich Swann in a 2 out of 3 falls affair, while Jessica Havok and Callihan face King and Jimmy Jacobs!  Plus, the Lucha Bros take on the Rascalz!
  • CHIKARA is in the WrestleFactory on Saturday for Don’t Go To Sleep!  (Though given the 3PM bell time, you should be fine.)  Dasher Hatfield defends the gold (on behalf of Mark Angelosetti) against The Whisper, Ophidian will face Rory Gulak, and a chaotic four-way tag elimination match is on the cards!
  • Assuming you can race over to Voorhees, NJ, in time, CZW has their Night of Infamy starting that night at 7PM.  Ethan Page faces John Silver!  Jordan Oliver defends the Wired title against Andrew Everett!  And BLKOUT have an open challenge!
  • OTT in Dublin has a Saturday night special of their own called Redemption (not related to the similarly named card in upstate New York the night before).  Starr teams with Jordan Devlin to face Ringkampf, Raven Creed defends the Women’s title against Lana Austin, and Jimmy Havoc faces Angel Cruz!  Plus, Tyler Bate and Dan Barry will be in action.
  • And if you want some tournament action, the Resistance Gallery in London is the place to be for Saturday/Sunday, as EVE is running SHE-1, a special 12-woman, 3-block, round-robin adventure!  The final show will feature the three block winners in a triple threat match, plus Kay Lee Ray challenges Charlie Morgan for the big gold!
  • Back in the States, those in Illinois get Glory Pro on Sunday afternoon in Collinsville for their show called Fear of the Dark!  Curt Stallion defends the big title against DJ Z, while Puma King goes at it with Jake Parnell!  Plus an astounding four way with AJ Gray, Kevin Ku, Clayton Gainz, and Brian Pillman Jr on the undercard!
  • Back in England, Manchester is hosting a Chapter of Progress!  The big one in WALTER facing Mark Haskins for the main title, while Aussie Open defend the tag belts against the team of Chris Brookes and Tim Thatcher!  Plus Trent Seven, Ilja Dragunov, Mike Bailey, Isla Dawn, and many more!  (I know someone here is a huge Progress fan and will fill in the gaps — I think?)

Bring the insanity!
