Indies and Insanity: October 10, 2019

Thanks for reading my Heroes of Wrestling look back!

Your NFL Game of the Week of the Day is New York Giants against New England.  In the college section, we have Syracuse against NC State on ESPN, while Bethune-Cookman takes on NC Central and Louisiana-Monroe at Texas State on ESPNU.  FS1 has the winner-take-all game between Tampa Bay and Houston in the ALDS.  ESPN2 has the WNBA finale between Connecticut and Washington.

After the jump, your indie calendar and chat thread.

Much lighter week than last week, so let’s get to the highlights:

  • Tonight’s episode of Uncharted Territory comes to you on IWTV at 8PM ET.  Tony Deppen defends his spot in the Discovery Gauntlet against a guy I’ve seen in person and really like, Hawkeye Steve Manders.  But your main event is the real attraction, as new WXW champion Timothy Thatcher faces off in a non-title match against Eddie Kingston!
  • EVE has Check Yourself in London on Saturday night.  The highlight is the semis and finals of a tournament to crown new EVE Tag Team Champions, but we’ll also have SHE-1 qualifiers.  (And rumor has it Kris Wolf has been allowed backstage, and who’s going to tell her to behave?)
  • Beyond will also be putting on a big show, Sodom and Gamorrah, Saturday afternoon in Asbury Park.  The main event is Warhorse Jake Parnell defending the IWTV Heavyweight Title against 2-time former champion Orange Cassidy!  Plus, Nick Gage, Kenn Doane, Daniel Makabe, Kris Statlander, and many more!
  • PROGRESS has a chapter in Manchester, entitled “True Friends Stab You in the Front”!  The main event is Paul Robinson defending the Proteus title against Travis Banks in a KO/Submission match, while new tag champs Jordan Devlin and Scotty Davis defend against the Grizzled Young Veterans!  Plus, Toni Storm, Ilja Dragunov, TK Cooper, and more!

For the indie match of the week, let’s have a scramble: it’s a five-way match with DL Hurst, Harlow O’Hara, Jody Threat, John Silver, and Puf!  We go to Portland, Maine for this one…

Bring the insanity!
