Indies and Insanity: October 31, 2019

It’s okay, everyone.  We survived another Saudi show.

San Francisco and Arizona are your Game of the Week of the Day.  Meanwhile, in college, you have two unbeaten teams playing in Baylor and Appalachian State (though not against each other — Baylor has West Virginia and Appalachian State has Georgia Southern).  In the NBA on TNT, we have Heat/Hawks, followed by Nuggets/Pelicans.

But first… wait, munchkins at the door.

…okay, now to the slate of independent wrestling you all love to ignore, after the jump.

Still with me?  Good.  Here’s your look at the top shows of the weekend:

  • Let’s open with Uncharted Territory on IWTV tonight!  Tony Deppend defends his place in the Discovery Gauntlet.  Anthony Greene and his Platinum Hunnies face Harlow O’Hara and the Batiri in a six-person match.  Team Tremendous faces Solo Darling and Willow Nightingale.  And in the main event, Nick Gage and Mance Warner square off in a 100000 Thumbtack Deathmatch, and no, that number is NOT a typo.
  • Tomorrow night, FIP will be In Full Force in Ybor City!  Anthony Henry, the champion, is in non-title action against Troy Hollywood.  The tag golds are on the line as Precipice takes on The Skulk.  Also in action, Natalia Markova, the Dirty Blondes, Jon Davis, and more!
  • Tommorow night in Chicago, it’s RISE presents La Escalera (the Stairway)!  Shotzi Blackheart’s farewell tour continues as she faces Rosemary.  Aerial Monroe defends the big gold against Laynie Luck.  Jessicka Havok and Neveah face Team Blue Nation for the tag gold.  And Cassandra el Exotico takes on… oh dear… Saraya Knight.  As for the titular match?  Six people will square off in a Money in the Bank style ladder match!
  • Your INDIE PROMOTION OF THE WEEK is AIW, who will meet on Saturday night in their milestone 200th show!  Matthew Justice defends the Intense title against Erick Stevens.  The Philly-Marino Experience put the tag gold on the line against Parker Pierce and Daniel Rockingham.  Also in attendance tonight: Eddie Kingston!  Nick Gage!  Alex Shelley!  Wheeler YUTA!  And more!
  • ICW is going to hit the weekend (Saturday/Sunday) in Glasgow with a two-night signature event, Fear and Loathing XII!  On night 1, Liam Thompson defends the Zero-G title against Wolfgang in a Good Housekeeping match (and if you were watching the WWF in 1999, you have expectations that I can’t guarantee but only hope are true).  Kid Fite faces Paul Robinson in a Street Fight.  New TNA Champion Sami Callihan faces BT Gunn.  Plus, Jordan Devlin, Alexander Dean, Grado, Viper, and more!
  • Then on Sunday night, Stevie Boy defends the big gold against Joe Coffey.  Kasey puts the women’s title on the line against Aivil.  Kings of Catch meet the Purge in a Deathmatch with the tag belts on the line.  Plus, Mark Coffey, Ilja Dragunov, Noam Dar, the Nine9, and more!

So on Halloween, what can we do for an Indie Match of the Week?  You’re kidding, right?  You know how many indies live up to the Diva Halloween tradition of a stupid costume battle royal?  Here, have another one – this time from ECCW (2018, New Westminster BC)

Trick or Treat!  Bring the insanity!
