AWF: Something To Prove

Recommended Posts




Billionaire Bill Jones has come out of nowhere with the creation of his very own wrestling promotion, American Wrestling Federation. He has seemingly stolen from the playbook of NYCW in some ways with his promotion as he is quoted stating he'd want to hire veterans of the business who weren't given a fair shake. Although some may believe that will come back to bit him...you'd be inclined to believe that these veterans will no doubt profit greatly from being apart of a company like the American Wrestling Federation. It's near the end of 2015 and they have signed quite a few vets, but they also have younger talent as well. There are literally no cons to being with this promotion and here's why.





1) Big League Production


The AWF although small are bankrolled by one of if not the richest person in America. He has promised that he'd spare no expense on his promotion and give the veterans and young alike a true introduction into the hearts of the hundreds of thousands of fans they are sure to reach. How will the reach that amount of people you ask? That question leads me straight into number two.


2) Bill owns his own network


That's right people, Bill Jones actually owns his own network known as the TWC network. This means that these veterans will have the ability to be seen by plenty of eyes around the country effectively raising their stock in the wrestling world. I doubt anyone would want them, but the AWF. However, you'd have to be a fool to pass up on a veteran or looked over younger talent whose become a huge draw in the AWF.


3) Money! Money! Money!


Although they are only locally known as of this very moment the AWF are freaking loaded. They will not be faced with the struggles of most small companies and workers don't have to worry about late payments or not being paid at all. The owner is a billionaire after all.


There are many rumors swirling around Bill and the AWF. The top rumor going around now is that he is thinking about having separate brands in order to mix young and old talent who'd otherwise never be given a chance in the big promotions. Names like Ricky Turner and Canadian Crusher were thrown out there as possible signings, but nothing solid has come out to support this rumor. I will leave you all with a little known fact though. The AWF have purchased the TWL Championship and has not only given it a complete makeover to fit the company, but they have placed that championship's entire history as apart of their history. These veterans and other cast offs who will join the AWF have something to prove and I for one will be watching intently.

<strong>AWF: Old School Showdown</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

December 16, 2015</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

AWF has finally released the name and date of their first event ever. Old School Showdown is the name, and although the match card has not been released I can tell you for certain that every championship the company has will be decided in this one event. Inside sources say that Bill doesn't want to waste any time establishing his champions, but it can be said that the only title he cares about is the AWF World Heavyweight Championship. This can only leave the futures of the tag team, television, and united states title's future pretty bleak. This event is said to hold names such as Big Daddy Cahill, Jack Griffith, "The Remarkable" Steve Flash, "Technical Beast" Bryan Holmes, and many more. It airs at 7pm and no one should miss it.</strong></p></div><p></p><p></p>

<strong>AWF has announced a new tv show to air starting in the month of January 2016. The show is called Warzone and will no doubt promote the issues we may see this coming weekend.</strong> </p></div><p></p><p></p>

Interviewer: What do you hope to accomplish in the AWF?</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Griffith: I hope to prove to not only America but the world that us old timers can still go in that squared circle. Its been quite some time since I had some gold around this waist or since people saw me as a real competitor or threat. The AWF will be the place where I make my name and on the wrong side of 40.</strong></p><p><strong>

Interviewer: At 52 years of age, what do you have to prove?</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Land Mass: Nothing, absolutely nothing to prove to anyone. I was given a chance to end my career here and I took it.</strong></p><p><strong>

Interviewer: You have been on the indy scene for 2 decades. Thoughts?</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Leo Davis: Well I haven't been in a promotion since TWL back in 95. Hell lets be honest, the only reason I was a tag team champion is because TWL were nearing the end anyway. AWF, this is where I get my chance to be someone even at the age of 46. I.....I HAVE....to be something....I have too</strong></p><p><strong>

Interviewer: Clark Alexander, you've been in the business for a long time now. You've even worked for Total Championship Wrestling from 2005 to 2011. However, you haven't accomplished anything of note in your long career. You haven't held a single championship at any point in your career. How do you feel about that and what do you hope to do about it?</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Clark Alexander: Your right, and that is something that has haunted me for a long time. I thought I had made it once I landed in TCW with the big boys so to speak. TCW, the land where wrestling matters. There I was around 30 years old in the best shape I could possibly be in and not a great promo by any stretch, but I could hold my own. I assumed that the opportunities would follow if I just buckled down and worked hard, but that didn't happen. I was there while Sam was winding down, Keith had come in, and the young bucks were getting over like nothing I've ever seen. Sad to say but I was an afterthought if I was even a thought at all. Now here I am in 2016 and working for a company whose sole purpose is to give guys like me a fair shake in this business. I'm here in the AWF to be great, I'm here to be remembered, I'm here to prove myself, and I'm here to become a legend even if it's only an AWF legend. I don't have time to pussyfoot around and collect a paycheck while I ride off into the sunrise. I'm not past my prime in fact I'm still in it. So unlike Land Mass and people like the Hillbillies, I am here to carve out a piece for myself and no one will stop me. It's either now or never and you can bet I'm choosing now.</strong></p><p><strong>

</strong><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="font-size:14px;">AWF: Old School Showdown (RECAP)</span></span></strong></p><p><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="font-size:14px;">


We are now in the new year of 2016, but the AWF have come off a great event to start their existence and to end 2015. The match card was as followed.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Steve Flash vs Bryan Holmes</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Cal Sanders vs Chris Lion Heart</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Nation of Filth vs The Hillbillys</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

AWF World Heavyweight Championship Match</strong></p><p><strong>

30 Man Battle Royal </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

The night started off with a bang as the two veterans put on a wrestling clinic. Steve Flash and Bryan Holmes showed all of America that age is nothing but a number. "The Remarkable" Steve Flash would eventually pull out a hard fought win after hitting his Flash Bang finisher.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Match number two pitted technical master Cal Sanders against Chris Lion Heart. CLH had youth on his side, but Cal Sanders would immobilize him and make the younger man tap out to his Canadian Cloverleaf.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Two tag teams that have been around for quite some time in The Nation of Filth and The Hillbillys. Going in many had this match looking pretty even, but when the bell rung that simply wasn't the case. The Nation of Filth rocked The Hillbillys from pillar to post and put them out of their misery quickly and easily.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Finally, a 30 man over the top rope battle royal to determine the first ever AWF World Heavyweight Champion. This match held names like Mad Man Cahill, Jack Griffith, Steve Flash, Bryan Holmes, Alexander Robinson, Clark Alexander, and even Ghengis Rahn. There were also a few young bucks in the match as well like Greg Rayne, The Rock City Stars, and other. Clark Alexander had the misfortune of coming out at number one and Stan Manna was number two. The battled it out as the ring slowly but surely began to fill. Cahil came out at number twenty and started cleaning house throwing out the likes of Ghengis Rahn, Bryan Holmes, Thomas Morgan, and many others. He was an unstoppable force. In the end the match boiled down to four individuals. Those individuals were Clark Alexander, Jack Griffith, Mad Man Cahill, and Greg Rayne. The three men were smart and all went after Cahill although he was able to fight them all off. Greg was leaned up against the rope and Cahill charged ahead with Griffith charging after him. Greg ducked down pulling the rope and as Cahill tried to stop himself he was met by a clothesline from Griffith. Meanwhile, Alexander is laid out from a Rayne Drop from earlier. Griffith and Rayne does battle and Rayne had Griffith nearly over. Alexander ran forward and eliminated both men to become the first AWF World Heavyweight Champion.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

Speaking of the AWF Champion...</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

</strong><a href="http://s1268.photobucket.com/user/devinhennington/media/AWF/AWF%20Superstars/Clark%20Alexander_zpsu0i3cnxo.jpg.html" rel="external nofollow"><span>http://i1268.photobucket.com/albums/jj574/devinhennington/AWF/AWF%20Superstars/Clark%20Alexander_zpsu0i3cnxo.jpg</span></a></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

We were able to get very few words out of Clark Alexander after making history twice! Once for the AWF and again for himself. We asked him if he had anything to say after his massive win and this was his response.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

</strong><strong><em>"December 16, 2015. This month, this day, and this year marks the greatest moment of my twenty year career. I have won my first championship ever and its a WORLD championship."</em></strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>

The champion is filled with pride and has me looking forward to not only his journey, but the journey of the AWF as a whole for this new year.</strong></p></div><p></p><p></p>
