C-Verse watcher dynasty


Recommended Posts

I’ve always wanted to start a diary/dynasty of sorts for the community. I’ve had many inspirational beginnings and then swiftly lose the impetus and buzz to continue. I enjoy creative writing but have been in a writer’s block for a while now and so figured this would be a way to blow off steam and maintain a diary of sorts.

This is purely passive. For those who play the C-Verse, this could be a reference point to say how my game world differs from your own and how differently the AI books from game to game.

It’s something anyway and if you stop by to read it, all the better for me doing it. Let’s go.

- TCW’s Malice in Wonderland was a masterclass of in-ring work with no less than 3 matches all receiving an A* rating. The pick of the 3 was Wolf Hawkins defeating Ricky Dale Johnson. At the same PPV The New Wave defeated The Behemoths to begin their sixth reign as tag team champions.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Dawn Gemmell and Trent Shaffer have been revealed to be somewhat of an item. No one seemed to care.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Another SWF Main Eventer’s contract is coming up. Remo is now subject to a bidding war for his next destination. At Nothing To Lose (A decent event by SWF’s standard), Jack Bruce turned heel for the first time in years. Perhaps their preparing for the worst in losing big stars and this could be a ratings ploy? Brandon James also pinned Skull DeBones at the PPV. Doing the honours on the way out possibly?</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- SOTBPW’s latest PPV was a resounding success. Champagne Lover retained the strap over El Alborotador Confiado in a sizzling semi main which received another A* (99) rating for the company.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

March;

Week 1;

- Sean McFly’s 17 years of service at NOTBPW are coming to an end. USPW continue to sign up all the talent they can and will potentially be the final stop of Sean McFly’s legendary career.

- 21CW signed 4 graduates of their dojo to deals with the main roster.

- Despite the in-ring action being excellent, news coming out from The War To Settle The Score is that TCW’s product isn’t catching on with its viewers and rumours of cutbacks within the company are rife.

- It’s been announced that perennial 21CW jobber Grave Digger has unfortunately passed away at the age of 22 after falling into a vat of liquid nitrogen. To quote his finisher; R.I.P

- Hirokazu Yamanoue began his first reign as PGHW Historical Japan champion winning the vacant title. Art Reed was the former champion but wasn’t signed onto this tour with the company so evidently vacated the belt.

- Tsuki Kawamata announces that her in-ring career will end next month.

- More relationships blossoming in the wrestling world. Davis Wayne Newton and Maryam Vega are an item. Remo Richardson has also started dating BJ O’Niell it seems.

- Former Football Star Julius Moor signs a contract extension with USPW.

- Kozue Kawashima, who has been arguably the best performer in the world over the last 2 and a half months, tears his rotator cuff during his latest bout and will be out for up to a year. Despite the injury, his match with Masaru Ugaki was an A* (99) rated match.

 

Week 2;

- A week after winning the Historical Japan title, PGHW star Hirokazu Yamanoue herniates his spinal disc and will be out for a year.

- The team of Sanda and Hamacho became the Burning Tag champions for the 6th time at BHOTWG’s TV Taping. They pinned Shibanumo & Yuasa.

- Shooter Sean Deeley follows Sean McFly out of the door of NOTBPW and into the hands of USPW.

- Simon Flemmingway dropped the PGHW International title to William Hayes at a recent event. Hayes is now a 3x champion.

- Sean McFly is going out of NOTBPW in style. Their latest TV show saw him defeat Steve DeColt in an A* (99) rated match.

- USPW Liberty & Justice was marred by a potential career ending injury to T-Rex. He suffered a broken neck during his bout with Eddie Howard. At the same event, a botched spot from Charlie Thatcher resulted in a broken tail bone for Masked Cougar who’ll be out for 1 month.

- Mabuchi Furusawa claimed victory in the annual SAISHO-A1 Grand Prix Tournament.

- Greg Gauge is the 3rd man in as many months to become Historical Japan champion for PGHW.

- At the annual Elite Series tournament held by the company, PRIDE Koiso emerged as the victor for the 4th time.

- Angry Gilmore is the latest SWF starlet who’s at the centre of a bidding war. The usual suspects are all in contention for his signature.

- Steve DeColt & Johnny Bloodstone won the latest Ed Henson Memorial Tag Team Cup event for NOTBPW. This is their 2nd time as victors.

 

Week 3;

- Another performer for PGHW suffered a serious injury on their current tour. Ryomo Muruyama suffered a torn quad and will be out for almost a year as well.

 

Week 4;

- USPW confirm the 10th addition to their roster this year. Tom ‘Angry’ Gilmore will depart SWF like Rich Money and Steve Frehley before him for richer pastures. He’ll appear for USPW under the name, ‘Money Gilmore’.

- SOTBPW’s mid card title switched hands at their TV show. Cerebro dropped the belt to Heavy Metal Anarchy in a surprise switch.

- Despite USPW signing up all the talent available, SWF continues to push out better events than USPW. SWF TV & PPV’s have them scoring B+’s against USPW averaging B’s. TCW is ploughing along just fine and although 3rd in the fight of the big 3, they are also consistently pulling B+’s in show ratings. Not to mention their in-ring action is consistently topping that of the other 2.

- Having not worked for the past 8 years, 66-year-old Elemental has declared that he’s going to retire from the industry. I’m fairly sure based on his recent work everyone thought he already had.

 

April;

Week 1;

- Not that it was ever in doubt due to his reluctance to work outside the country, but Soul Taker signs a contract extension to stay with SOTBPW. He backed up his deserving of the contract by having his 5th A* (99) rated match of the year. His second with El Leon.

- Harley Neill ended Sebastian Koller’s run of 11 title defences after winning the 21CW United Kingdom title at the recent TV show.

- Dark Angel has officially been released by the company with no one else picking up his services. His last match was a loss to Stevie Stoat on TV. It seems, despite having 2 of the best workers in the world, 21CW never wanted to give the fans Dark Angel vs Tommy Cornell and now it may never happen. Perhaps now could be the time for a quiet retirement for Dark Angel, or could there be more left in the tank?

 

Week 2;

- A smart, if unspectacular and underwhelming, way to debut for Sean Deeley and Sean McFly. The 2 ex-NOTBPW stars made their debuts on USPW TV against each other in the middle of the card with McFly emerging victorious.

- Blast Ikoma claimed victory in the annual Yoshifusa Media Grand Prix Tournament for BCG.

- USPW Freedom Fight! is easily the company’s best show this year. A double main event saw Nicky Champion defeat Rich Money in the semi-main with an A* (99) rated match. The main event saw Baine and Frehley pin Law and Justice in an A (92) rated match. The rest of the card was unspectacular but these 2 matches will have made the show worth the fans while.

- Back in January, after 8 years in development, Primus Allen was called up to the SWF main roster. 2 pre-show losses later it seems his time with the company may be coming to an end.

 

Week 3;

- DJ Reason and Charlie Thatcher sign extensions to their contracts with 21CW and USPW.

- Brace yourselves. Rumour has it Rocky Golden’s contract with TCW is almost up. Expect USPW to pull out all the stops to steal him away. One has to think that if Golden decides to leave TCW, the company could be in trouble.

- Mexicano, Hysteria & Jormungand begin their first reign as Campeanatos de Trios SOTBPW champions. The match took place on a very impressive card drawing a 0.55 buy rate on PPV. The company’s 2nd best buy rate this year. The company have never put on a PPV rated lower than A (90) this year.

- 21CW Wicked draws the company’s lowest buy rate of the year so far but the show is still decent, headlined by a solid B+ main event which sees Edward Cornell defend his world title for the 6th time. From an in-ring standpoint, Cornell has been a solid champion and main eventer. But the company is slowly losing popularity in the UK whilst operating without a figurehead so it would seem unfair to blame Edward Cornell. Perhaps a better use of Tommy Cornell may lead to a change of fortune?

- Raymond Diaz becomes the 3rd wrestler this year to break their neck and the 3rd PGHW star that’ll be sidelined for over a year. No botches involved but… that’s a lot of broken necks in 4 months.

 

Week 4;

- Rockin’ Ryan Turner announces that he’ll be out of the business for a couple of months due to his band going on tour. This coming from the guy who hasn’t worked in 16 months. Still, be sure to catch Ryan at a venue near you.

- With what may well be a nail in the proverbial coffin of TCW, figurehead Rocky Golden is leaving the company and signing with… surprise, surprise… USPW! Tommy Cornell protégé Wolf Hawkins now has the responsibility of almost single handedly keeping TCW alive. Good luck, kid!

- Money Gilmore debuts in the main event of USPW American Wrestling losing by DQ to James Justice in a solid B+ match.

- Dick the Devastator announced that he’s going to retire from the wrestling business after 50 years in the industry. We wish him well in retirement.

- Another SWF guy defects to USPW. Des Davids, currently out with a torn rotator cuff injury suffered at the hands of Joe Sexy last year, signs for the company. A spot of good news for SWF however, James Prudence signs an extension to stay with the company.

- George Wolfe defeated Hal Harvard for the Mid Atlantic American title at MAW Americana.

- Steve DeColt is the latest big name star to have his contract come up for negotiation. Despite being arguably the best worker in the world, he’s relatively unknown to the casual fan in the USA so may not gather much attention to the companies here. If they’re smart though, even at 42, he would be a coup for any company.

 

To summarise USPW's impact on the industry over the past 4 months, here is a shortlist of all their signings so far;

Roger Cage (NYCW), Nelson Callum, Greg Black (PSW), Donnie J, Masked Cougar (CZCW) Kirk Jameson, Hell's Bouncer (FCW), Sean McFly, Shooter Sean Deeley (NOTBPW), Angry Gilmore, Des Davids (SWF) & Rocky Golden (TCW). No one is safe!

- Japanese and Southern wrestling legends, Sadaharu Jimbo & Professor Nero, each declare that they’ll walk away from the business in a month’s time.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

</span></span><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 2;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Allen Pecker decides stealing talent isn’t enough and has declared NOTBPW & SOTBPW as ‘the enemy’. Relationships are said to be hostile. It’s a bold move from the boss as, despite signing up as much talent as possible, the company are decreasing in popularity across the world, specifically in the US where they’ve dropped 6 points since January.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Curtain raiser Alan Parent tears his quad in a 6 man tag match on CGC TV. He’s out for just shy of a year.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Persephone has also been told she has no future with USPW. Are they scrapping the woman’s division?</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- More retirements incoming. Alfredo Menendez and Jackson Andrews announce they are leaving the business.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- A bad day for men of the announce desk. USPW’s former colour man Shane Sneer passes away at the age of 59. On the same day, former RIPW play-by-play guy Harvey Manners also dies at the age of 50.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Remo and Joey Morgan main event SWF Master of Puppets in an excellent A grade encounter. Remo retains the World belt to headline a strong event from the company.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Champagne pulls double Main Event duty at SOTBPW Batalla Real 10. He retains the world title before going on to win a 30 man battle royal in the company’s best event of the year.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Acid Dragon begin their 4th reign as WLW Tag Champs taking the titles from Infamy Inc</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Ricky DeColt signs a deal to jump ship from CGC to NOTBPW. He debuts in a losing effort to Derek Frost at Grappling Glory, the company’s worst PPV of the year so far.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

</span></span><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 3;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- 5SSW will soon be without the services of Megumi Nakajima as she announces she’s pregnant.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- CGC decides something has to change. Stevie Grayson and Identity beat The Predators to become Tag Champs.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Grandmaster Phunk herniates his spinal disc in action for PSW. He’s out for a year.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Japanese hardcore legend, Saionji Omura, passes away at the age of 68.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Avalanche receives a call-up to the main roster for SWF</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Speaking of SWF, they continue their string of strong TV shows with an awesome Supreme TV. Mikey Lau picks up his first piece of SWF gold pinning Joey Morgan to become North American champion.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Troy Tornado signs a contract extension to stay with TCW.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- USPW’s Declaration Of Independence is a decent but unspectacular show. Money Gilmore stole the show in a losing effort to Nicky Champion in an A* (97) rated match.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- 21CW drop down to Cult status and alarm bells are ringing in the company with talk of cuts incoming.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- A bolstering of the Tag division seems to be the ideas for 21CW. Nightmare & Harley Neill are due to team under the name, ‘The Real Main Event’. Sebastian Koller and Nate Manchester are going to team as ‘Mercury Rising’.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- OLLIE’s 6 man tag title changed hands recently. North Star Jr., Disturbed & El Hijo Espada Roja are the new champs.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Quiz Master is the new RAW Quest champion taking the title away from Horton Ravenwood.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- PGHW looks to be expanding their roster for future tours after rising to National status.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

</span></span><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 4;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- PRIDE Koiso and Yoshimi Mushashibo put on a 5* classic for PGHW. A sure fire MOTY candidate.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Primus Allen wasn’t without work for long. He’s been signed to a non-exclusive deal with PSW.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Joshua Taylor slipped under the radar for contract negotiations. The TCW main eventer will now be exclusive to USPW where he’ll likely get lost in the shuffle.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- A Tsunami has devastated Japan. Early reports suggest the damage is on a monumental scale and the country could take years to recover.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- WLW says that Insane Machine is free to leave once his current deal expires. Meanwhile, in SWF, Eric Eisen is currently undergoing negotiations for a new deal. A bidding war is likely to erupt but will Eisen really leave the SWF?</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Reaver leaves WLW and signs a deal with BHOTWG but it seems he’ll don the Hell Monkey mask for the company despite losing it only a year ago.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- DeMarcus and Gray didn’t manage a single defence of their MAW Tag titles before dropping them. Josh Jacobs and Deuce Deadline are the new champions.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- USPW Television champion Casey Valentine signs a new deal to stay with the company. As does Andre Jones.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Someone needs to pay more attention to how TCW negotiates contract deals and the length of them. Wolf Hawkins contract is now due for renewal so I expect there’ll be a battle for his services.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

</span></span><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">June;</span></strong></span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

</span></span><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 1;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- TCW Total Mayhem XX was an excellent show that saw 2 title changes occur at the traditional finale for the company. Benny Benson won the International title for the 3rd time ending the reign of Marc Speed. Also, Sammy Bach’s gradual rise in popularity coupled with excellent performances was rewarded as he beat Aaron Andrews to become TCW World Heavyweight champion.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- NOTBPW have seen a dip in momentum having gone from regular A & B+’ show to regular B’s and the occasional B-. This has seen them fall back to Cult status.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- One-half of the Crazy Clown Possee, Hustler D met his demise yesterday after pulling the pin on an antique hand grenade. He was 44.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Frankie-Boy Fernandes looks to get extra work where he won’t be jobbing. He’s signed a deal to appear for GSW as well as CZCW</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Sammy Bach leads by example, main eventing Total Wrestling in an A grade clinic defeating Bryan Vessey. It’s the company’s best TV show of the year</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Steve Flash dropped the NYCW Empire title to Man Mountain Cahill at their Anguished Screams event. Brutus Milano also won the Tri-State Regional title defeating Crocket Tubbs. This event also saw NYCW rise from Small to Regional status as the company grows.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- BCG looks to expand their horizons and reach in Japan holding a show in the region of Shikoku. However, they only drew 67 fans, down 22 from their last visit to the region 2 months ago.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Samoan Machine will leave BCG after signing an exclusive deal to wrestle for BHOTWG.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Young Japanese prospect Avalanche Takano signs a deal to join PGHW. Expect him to become a big name within the next 5 years.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Gino Montero appeared on Social Media earlier in the week showing off his new, ripped physique. PGHW were paying attention and signed the excellent luchador to a written deal meaning he’ll leave OLLIE.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- 5SSW World Championship changed hands. Tomoko Nagatsuka dropped the belt to DEVIL Karube.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- USPW honour Shane Sneer with a posthumous induction into their Hall Of Fame.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Eric Eisen shows loyalty to the family by staying with SWF in signing a new deal. Wolf Hawkins doesn’t show that same loyalty however and, after 12 years of service to TCW, he’ll leave to join the star-studded #1 promotion in the world; USPW!</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

</span></span><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 2;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Findlay O’ Farraday signs a deal to compete for GCG. It’s non-exclusive so he’ll still appear for BCG as well.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- USPW Americana! may have been a wet dream for some wrestling fans. Rocky Golden & Nicky Champion teamed together to steal the show in an A (95) rated match defeating Natural Storm.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Nathan Coleman, Ash Campbell, Madman Boone and Masked Avatar all sign PPA deals with NYCW.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Matthew Macks defeated Jason Dempsey to become VWA Swiss champion at their Adrenaline Rush show.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Mr C+, The Force, signs a contract extension to stay with USPW. Even with all that spectacular talent to compete with The Force is still a regular fixture on the show sticking around in that Upper Midcard spot.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- SWF drew a buy rate of 1.03, their joint lowest this year, for SWF Times Of Trouble. A solid show was held where Eric Eisen & Remo defeated Valiant and DeBones in the main event.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- SOTBPW continues to set the standard for Sports Entertainment around the world. 50,000 fans attended SOTBPW Infierno. The show drew a 0.60 buy rate, the best of the year so far and they matched it by putting on the best wrestling event this year by any company. Champagne Lover and Soul Taker headlined with a 5 star, A*(100) classic where Lover retained the belt.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Kerry Wayne dropped the RAW TV title to Rick Stantz at their latest TV event.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Cyanide defeated Pumpkin Jack to begin his 2nd reign as ZEN Master champion.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

</span></span><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 3;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Eric Tyler is the latest talent to sign a deal with USPW. Heading out the door could be Freddie Datsun who seems unlikely to get a new deal. At 47 years old it may seem unlikely he’ll get picked up elsewhere.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- EWA’s Intercontinental Championship switched at their recent event. Frank Van Heer beat Paolo Gandalfini to claim the title.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- After 38 years involved in the business, Sam Strong officially said goodbye to the wrestling business. We wish the wrestling legend all the best in his retirement.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- PSW sign up the talents of NYCW Tag Title holder Tennessee William to a non-exclusive deal.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Extraordinario Jr. leaves OLLIE for the bigger playground of SOTBPW</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- CGC hold In The Company Of Legends and it is an absolutely bang average show by their standards cementing their status as a C-level company. Drawing their lowest buy rate of the year (0.04 or 24,745 buys) it is headlined by Ryan Powell and Jack DeColt defeating Dan DaLay and Gargantuan. The future looks dull for the company.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Edward Cornell and Adam Matravers steal the show at 21CW; War Drums in an A grade match for the company. Cornell retains the World Title.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

</span></span><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 4;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Sayeed Ali storms out of 4C before their latest show. Citing payment issues as the reason for his departure, this marks the end of his almost 10 year run with the company. The roster then went out and put on the company’s best show of the year so far. So perhaps he won’t be missed.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Johnny Martin retained his World Title at PSW Resistance 2016 however he did break his wrist in the process. He’ll be out for roughly 3 weeks but, given the company have no rigid schedule, he’ll certainly be back for the next event.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Sammy Bach continues to carry TCW on his back. Bach main evented their latest TV event in an awesome match with Bryan Vessey. The viewers clearly seem to be on his side also as they drew their biggest TV rating of the year so far with a 7.44. 0.20 clear of their previous highest.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Yoshinaka Taku is the new BCG Challenger Series champion ending the reign of Sofu Ozawa.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Ekuma has been told that he’s free to leave SWF. Given he’s only appeared 4 times since February (All on PPV, however) it’ll likely be unsurprising for him. The kid has talent though and being only 29, he’ll surely find a home somewhere.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Japanese companies look to finally be feeling the effects of the recent Earthquake that struck the country. Both BHOTWG & PGHW decline into Cult status and workers now fear cutbacks. NYCW also fall back to Small status after a good few months at Regional. The effects shouldn’t be felt too much with the company in a decent financial position.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- Mr Lucha III joins some of his fellow colleagues in signing a deal with SOTBPW. The company are currently on fire at the moment and signings like this will only continue to serve them well.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- MAW Fan Festival was a decent event with the highlight undoubtedly being Greg Gauge dropping the Mid Atlantic title to Syd Collier. Sam Keith seems to be hot on the kid after he also defeated Gauge to win the Rip Chord Invitational back in January.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';">

- TCW has begun talks with Aaron Andrews in negotiating a new deal. Unsurprisingly news is breaking that SWF, NOTBPW & USPW are also interested in his services. If current form is anything to go by, he’ll be with USPW before the end of next week.</span></span></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

<p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>July</strong></span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

</span></span><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 1;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- TCW Excessive Force is the company’s best show of the year so far with Sammy Bach & Bryan Vessey, once again, tearing the house down in an instant A* classic. Bach is still World Champion.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Frankie Perez signs a deal to join up with BHOTWG.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Results are in as to who’s leading the chase in the end of year awards. SOTBPW is currently leading the company of the year award. Yoshimi Mushashibo is wrestler of the year so far and with an average match rating of A (94), it’s difficult to see anyone beating him.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Magnifico has been on an excellent heel run of late in SOTBPW but creative have switched things up with a face turn at their recent show.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Paige Croft defeated Talia Quinzel at AAA Women Of Wrestling 20 to become Top Contender for the big belt.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Greg Gauge wasn’t resigned for PGHW’s latest tour so his Historical Japan title was vacated. Haranobu Kobayashi is the new champion.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Rocky Golden and Wolf Hawkins faced off against each other in the 6th match of USPW Independence Day Slam! Perhaps in protest at being put so low on the card, the 2 went on to have USPW’s best match of the year in an A* (99) rated barnstormer! Also on the card, Des Davids bested Trent Shaffer for the USPW National Title in his first match of 2016 and first ever for USPW. Quite the debut!</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- American Elemental tore his quad during a match for WLW and will be out for a year.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Fuyuko Higa claimed victory at 5SSW J Grand Prix Tournament in a show stealing main event.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Yasuhide Tayama begins his first reign as SAISHO Destiny Champion defeating Azumamaro Kita.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

</span></span><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 2;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- So it took slightly longer than a week but our predictions were accurate. Aaron Andrews sings a deal to join Rocky Golden and Wolf Hawkins in USPW. These 3 men were also the most recent 3 world champions in TCW before Sammy Bach’s current reign. Joshua Taylor also signs a deal with USPW. One would expect TCW will start struggling soon after losing 4 of their biggest stars in the last 7 weeks.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- USPW seem to be running with a Rich Money vs Wolf Hawkins storyline for the foreseeable future. The feud got off to an outstanding start as they main evented American Wrestling with a 5* classic.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- SWF held Supreme Challenge 36. The event naturally drew the company’s biggest buy rate so far this year but the event wasn’t worthy of being the biggest show of the year, most notably for the absence of Jack Bruce. The biggest star in the company and their figurehead isn’t on the biggest show of the year? Odd. Remo headlined the event defending the world title vs Skull DeBones. </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Koko Ishibashi becomes the 4th wrestler this year to break his neck in a potential career ending injury. Tiger Prince also tore his meniscus at the same WLW event and will be out for almost a year in a horrible night for WLW.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Zimmy Bumfhole states his ambitions to travel the world and wrestle in more exotic places. Perhaps further up the card would be a good start?</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

</span></span><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 3;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Joss Thompson signs an extension to his deal with USPW.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Tanya Toshusai claimed the vacant Openweight Championship for GCG last night.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Industry insiders claim Remmy Skye is one to watch for the future. The former CZCW star has only appeared on 3 independent shows so far this year.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Multimillionaro headlined another excellent PPV for SOTBPW where he defeated Champagne Lover for their World Title. The company continues to raise the bar with Luchamania 4 drawing a 0.66 buy rate. The company’s best this year.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Danielle Sweetheart won the QAW Queen of the Ring tournament for the 4th time defeating Toni Parissi in the final.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Marihito Masuko claimed victory in the annual BHOTWG Best of the Super Juniors tournament. This marks his 3rd time winning the tournament.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Blockbuster’s 8-month reign with the CGC Canadian title came to an end at the Ultimate Showdown event. Whippy the Clown is the new champion.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Danger Kumaska separated his shoulder at PGHW’s latest show. Surprisingly this is only the 62-year old’s first injury this year despite having competed in over 40 matches. Japan, eh?!</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- PGHW continued to stand by Raymond Diaz and support him as he recovers from a broken neck and how does he repay them? He signs a deal for BHOTWG, of course. Still out for another 9 months anyway, it’ll be an interesting return.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Harley Neill dropped the 21CW United Kingdom title to Leigh Burton at 21CW: London Calling. It was an average show for the company with nothing else of note coming out of it.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Gino Montero becomes the 4th wrestler this year to tear his quad and will miss a year. Maybe guys in the ring need to reduce the intensity of their matches. These injuries are getting out of hand.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- The Minor Annoyance has vocalised his frustrations at being out of work for so long. That must be annoying for him, I’m sure.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

</span></span><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 4;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- CGC have been struggling to meet the requirements of Maple Leaf Sports and have now had their TV show pushed back to a late night timeslot. It’ll keep the company on the air but I expect they’ll lose viewership.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Jungle Jack decided not to sign an extension with SWF and instead joins USPW. Harry Wilson and Donny Fonzarelli sign extensions to their deals with 21CW and TCW. Koshiro Ino extends his stay with BHOTWG and Rick Law is due to sign an extension with USPW.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- William Hayes dropped the PGHW International championship to Bussho Makiguchi after 13 successful defences.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- MAW held the annual Sam Keith Classic tournament in which Roderick Remus and Syd Collier claimed victory. Collier has now won everything MAW has to offer this year except the Mid Atlantic American title.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

</span></span><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">August;</span></strong></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><strong><span style="text-decoration:underline;">

</span></strong></span></span><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 1;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Vance Sturt, unemployed in the business for the last 5 years has surprised many by founding his own wrestling promotion. Youth Energy Wrestling Promotion will hopefully bring about a change of pace for wrestling in Austrailia.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Rick Law surprises nobody by staying where the money is and signing an extension with USPW. Jacob Jett is clearly happy putting on good matches but losing every week in NOTBPW as he extends his stay with them. His record this year is 0-0-15.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Benny Benson continues his strong start to his TCW International Title reign. 5 defences so far. There seems to be no change in his popularity with the crowd but he’s putting on solid matches.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Ricky Dale Johnson’s loyalty is going to be put to the test. His TCW contract is coming up and there’s interest from the big boys in his services.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- In 21CW, Rolling Johnny Stones made only his 4th appearance this year. He headlined their TV show in a no contest with Edward Cornell in what was an excellent encounter.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- BCG had a couple of their vacated titles claimed at a recent show. Blast Ikoma is the new Challenger Series champion. Torii and Narahashi won the tag titles.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- EXODUS 2010 held their annual Junior Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament. Silver Shark claimed victory.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Rumour has it that Eric Eisen and Valiant recently had a huge falling out at a recent SWF show. Allegedly there is a strong dislike between them. Surprisingly though, the 2 men light it up in the ring putting on strong showings of late which has seen both of their popularity’s skyrocket of late.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- QAW is looking to shake things up with a couple of title changes at their latest show. Miss Sara is your new QAW World champion after ending the 13 month reign of Jillian Jarvis. Raquel Alvarado dropped the Shockwave championship after 8 successful defences to Alexis Lee</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

</span></span><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 2;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- After being released by PSW a few months ago after 9 years of service, JD Morgan headlines an independent card against Stink in a poor match. The performance skills are still there but the technical and physical are fading and it may be a matter of time before the 48 year old hangs up the boots.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- YEPW unleashes a wave of 13 non-exclusive signings to the roster. The biggest name so far appears to be Heath Murdock, current DIW World Champion. APW Austrailian champion Debonair David Peterson has been announced as head booker for YEPW.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Matthew Keith has seen his popularity slowly increase in Japan with BHOTWG. His rise up the midcard was awarded with a main event spot in a losing effort to Tadiyuki Kikkawa in the kid’s best match this year.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- YEPW’s first show, Culture Shock, is an excellent outing for the new company drawing 178 fans and a solid C rating. Christopher Gerard is their International Champion and Debonair David Peterson is the Arena Championship title holder.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Tracey Brendon is currently busy being a mother but seemingly the stress of parenting has taken its toll on the relationship as she has divorced from Joshua Taylor.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- TCW continues to surprise everyone. Despite losing their top stars the company is pulling its best TV ratings of the year and putting on great show after great show,</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Rich Money and Money Gilmore put on a second consecutive excellent main event for USPW American Wrestling. The two don’t appear to be in a storyline together but perhaps they should as this feud could be… money.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- A 5th broken neck for a wrestler this year and the 2nd for a WLW competitor. Masked Avatar joins Koki Ishibashi on the potential career ending injury list. The company is taking big steps in chasing down PGHW & BHOTWG but maybe they need to ease off on the intensity of matches a bit?</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- After 2 shows for PSW, Primus Allen walks out on the company minutes before PSW For The Ages. No one knows the reasons why except that there was an argument involved.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- USPW appears to be going absolutely all out to put TCW out of business. Ricky Dale Johnson signing for the company marks their 5th signing from TCW this year.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- At 48 years old, Louis Figo Manico announces his return to the business from hiatus. Given his last appearance was 9 years ago, I’m curious to see how his ring work has suffered and if anybody will remember him?</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- WEXXV continues to struggle in Japan but they crowned new Blood Brothers champions. Henry Lee and Doug Peak (American Psychos) are the new champs.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Jack Bruce is clearly looking for a change of pace in his latter years. He’s done the unthinkable and turned heel at SWF’s Welcome To The Jungle. It’ll be interesting to see how this works out and if this could be the catalyst for SWF to reclaim their spot atop the American wrestling ladder.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Solid hand and curtain raiser Bob Casey announces he’ll retire in 3 months. Given he’s only made 2 Independent show appearances this year in Canada, it may be a smart move from the veteran.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- SOTBPW continue to set new standards as their latest PPV, Anniverario XIX, draws a buy rate of 0.72 and is headlined by a 5* classic as Multimillonario successfully defends the strap over Axxis Jr. The company is now at C- popularity across the US compared to the E+ they started the year at.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- NOTBPW Summer Smash is the company’s best show in 4 months as Tim Westybrook and Steve DeColt bring the house down in the main event to top a solid card. Westybrook continues to raise the prestige and value of the Canadian title with this latest defence. The event also saw the tag titles change hands as Lord James King and Julian Watson beat Omar Brown and Harlem Haynes.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- It’s difficult being one of the top performers in the world. Sources close to him say that PRIDE Koiso may be pushing himself too much and should take time off to heal up from niggling injuries.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- After being released by USPW a few months back, Tiffany Jade lands herself a deal with NOTBPW.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

</span></span><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 3;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Grayson and Identity’s reign as Tag Champs in CGC is at an end as The Soldiers of Fortune claim the titles for the 5th time. This marks Fate’s 10th time as Tag Team champion in CGC.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Gargantuan’s contract with CGC is due for a renewal. The giant has seen his skills improve in the last few months and I find it hard to believe that he’ll be in CGC much longer.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- USPW American Wrestling saw a 5* MOTY candidate as Nicky Champion beat Wolf Hawkins by DQ. </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- GCG’s latest show has seen them rise to cult status after a strong couple of months. This gives Japan 4 companies now currently at cult status and as the economy and industry continue to try and recover from the Tsunami a few months ago, it’ll be interesting to see how the next few years pan out in the land of the rising sun.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- USPW Apple Pie and Wrestling! is in the books and it was a good show by all accounts. Joshua Taylor ‘celebrates’ his divorce by becoming TV champion, defeating Casey Valentine. Steve Frehley retains over Nicky Champion. Rocky Golden & Wolf Hawkins appeared only in backstage skits. Match of the night goes to Rich Money defeating Money Gilmore in their 3rd match in as many weeks, with each one being better than the last.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Over in SOTBPW, Heavy Metal Anarchy dropped the midcard title to Amo Del Gato after thirteen successful defences.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- CGC continues to underwhelm with The Battle Beyond and when your figurehead and world champion, Jack DeColt, is in the 2nd match on the card with no storyline, is it any wonder the company continues it’s dull run of form? Having said all that, they have managed to retain the services of Gargantuan so that’s something.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Marihito Masuko defeated Sensational Dragon to become the new Burning Junior champion in BHOTWG to begin his fourth reign with the belt.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Another title change this week, this time in ACPW. Jamie Atherton is the new Junior Heavyweight champion after ending the reign of Diablo Duvak.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Yuri Iliakov sustained a major concussion during a match at 21CW: We Will Rock You and will be out for over a year. As a result, the Tag titles have been vacated since he and Viktor Beskov retained the belts on the show.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- 45-year-old Silver Shark is ending his stay with EX2010 after signing an exclusive deal with GCG. Motty Kuroda, Strong Style Yoemon and Nigel Svensson also sign deals with the company.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

</span></span><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Week 4;</span></span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- BHOTWG Main Eventer Yasunobu Masuno will miss over a year of action after tearing his Pectoral Muscle during a bout with Samoan Machine.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Buff Martinez has seen his stock rise in 21CW of late and is in line to start a storyline with world champion Edward Cornell.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Following his recent retirement, Land Mass has decided to open a dojo. Heaven help us.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">

- Nate DeMarcus is a MAW Tag champion again. This time with Copperhead after the pair defeated Josh Jacobs and Deuce Deadline.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:'Palatino Linotype';"><span style="font-size:10px;">
