Its that time once again to look back at September and tell you my favourites from the local companies in that month.
WRESTLER OF THE MONTH
MITCHELL STARR / KELLY SIXX / GRAYSON REEVES / MAXIMO JR
First up we have MITCHELL STARR who debuted for PWA at their September Slam show, he was up against the UK Dominator and brought the whole room down in tears of laughter whilst actually standing toe-to-toe with the Ultimate Rule Breaker and kicking his butt. He won the match even though technically he was helped by The Winner PJ Jones but I can’t wait to see him again. Absolutely brilliant wrestler.
KELLY SIXX is a obvious favourite, all I ever do is praise the guy and its always deserved. He was part of two great six-man tag matches, first as part of the Soul Society against The Magnums and Raven and secondly with Reeves and Lekimie against Ryan, Hawke and Riley. The man was the standout in the Soul Society match against Raven and is one of the most naturally talented guys down this way. The man simply is amazing.
As I haven’t stopped talking about him it shouldn’t surprise anyone that GRAYSON REEVES is up there too. Dude was amazing in his match at PWA which the lovely people at PWA have Uploaded onto YouTubeUploaded onto YouTube for you all to see so you really should check it out. You’ll all understand why the guy was nominated the second you watch it. Seeing I once hated him it is a really pleasant surprise to be able to nominate him. He’s now one of my favourites (though he has been since about April.)
LEP headlined their Stonehouse return with a Money in the Bank ladder match which was one of the best matches I’ve seen this year, MAXIMO JR was the man that went on to win it in fantastical style, not that it plays anything into anything as I didn’t see it but he then cashed the contract in at their Torquay show and beat Jason King to win the LEP Academy championship. Always enjoy Maximo Jr and all the guys in that match were amazing.
TAG TEAM OF THE MONTH
KINGS COURT / HOUSE OF BONES / ASHLEY DUNN & ASH DRAVEN
A few good tag team matches this month. I had to nominate THE KINGS COURT as even though they lost their match it was amazing seeing Jason King and Adam Flint tag together. The two guys actually really clicked as a team and I really hope that we get to see them in the future.
HOUSE OF BONES can’t be beaten, they have destroyed everyone who has come face to face with them including ASHLEY DUNN & ASH DRAVEN. Their debut against the tag team champions was sad because they were so mismatched but they still made a impact. Both the teams were great and you can’t really bet against House of Bones right now.
MATCH OF THE MONTH
CHRIS ANDREWS vs EDDIE RYAN / MR MASSIVE vs GRADO / JOSH KNOTT vs ULTIMO TIGER / LEP MitB MATCH / REEVES & LEKIMIE & SIXX vs RILEY & RYAN & HAWKE
Ohh jeez I could have probably nominated every single Pride match from their Plymouth show but I won’t. The three I have nominated were brilliant. CHRIS ANDREWS vs EDDIE RYAN was always going to be a classic and it was nice to see the two of them fight. Those two really ended a great night with a phenomenal match. MR MASSIVE vs GRADO was Chuck Cyrus’s debut for Pride and it was amazing, it was fun seeing him against Grado and the match was also one hell of a laugh. It marked the start of great things for Mr Massive at Pride. Then you have JOSH KNOTT vs ULTIMO TIGER. Come on these two were always going to steal the show so it doesn’t surprise me that I nominated the match. Its ending was brilliant with Knott stealing Tiger’s trophy. Those two will fight again at Taunton with Kelly Sixx thrown into the mix.
LEP and PWA both had great main events. The MitB LADDER MATCH was fantastic and other then cringing every time someone tried to climb the ladders, two of which really didn’t seem to be stable. It was a fun match though. PWA’s I don’t need to say anything as I posted a link to watch it above so just go watch.
