FIP is set to return to action this Saturday in Crystal River, FL (check www.FullImpactPro.com for building info). FIP will be blown up as a new chapter in FIP history is set to start. How will FIP be “Redefined” this Saturday? What could possibly go down? Get your tickets now at FullImpactPro.com or at the door and find out this Saturday. Since FIP will be “Redefined” this Saturday we will take a different approach with this edition of the FullImpactPro.com Headlines. Here is a preview of this Saturday’s event including some new match announcements and possibilities:
FIP World Heavyweight Title Match
Erick Stevens defends vs. Roderick Strong
This will be the most special night of FIP World Heavyweight Champion Erick Stevens’ career. He will return to FIP and his homestate of Florida as the FIP Champion. Both he and Strong have been born and bred in Florida. Strong held the title for 13 months before Stevens defeated him in Manhattan at ROH’s “Final Battle 2007” to win the belt on December 30th. Stevens survived the toughest schedule of his life in January and truly rose to the champion role. Sports experts compare Stevens’ maturity to stardom to that of Eli Manning of the Superbowl Champion NY Giants. Can Stevens get past a very hungry Strong? Who will move forward as the face of FIP?
FIP Florida Heritage Title Match
Sal Rinauro defends vs. Tyler Black
Sal Rinauro led The YRR’s rise to dominance by winning the Florida Heritage Championship in shocking fashion from Erick Stevens at the last FIP event. Rinauro has no respect for the heritage of Florida wrestling and uses the belt to make a mockery out of it. Tyler Black is the fastest rising star in the independent scene today. He knows what it means to represent the past. Black wants to make sure he is a regular in FIP and he ascertains that the way to attain that goal is to become a champion. Rinauro wants to continue to use the belt as a piece of jewelry. Who will represent Florida’s past as FIP heads into the future?
FIP Tag Team Champions Jason Blade & Kenny King have an open contract to defend the titles!!!
Any team anywhere in the wrestling industry can step forward and challenge Blade & King for the FIP Tag Team Championship. Blade & King are coming off an impressive 2-0 showing in ROH in January. They have momentum. Is there any team out there that can stop them?
No Rules Losing Team Can Never Wrestle In FIP Again
Black Market vs. The Heartbreak Express
It is the longest running feud in FIP history. No two teams or four men have fought as many times as Black Market and The Heartbreak Express. Now when FIP becomes “Redefined” one of these teams will be gone from FIP forever. This will truly change the face of the FIP tag team scene. FIP will never be the same after this contest.
Non-Title Special Challenge Match
ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness vs. The Necro Butcher
Both McGuinness and Necro Butcher look to be regulars in FIP. This match will determine the pecking order on future FIP events. How will Nigel’s lariat fare against the wild Necro Butcher of DP Associates?
Women’s Tag Team Match
Allison Danger & Trenesha vs. Lacey & Rain
Lacey & Rain of The YRR will see their enemies team up for this women’s grudge match. Trenesha, who just made her TNA debut on PPV, and Allison Danger would like to make sure that FIP continues without Rain & Lacey. This is going to be one hot match!!!
-Austin Aries: Returning for the first time in over a year, Aries has a lingering issue with DP Associates. He says he has an idea to finish off DP once and for all.
-Davey Richards with Dave Prazak: You know Prazak has to have a plan for DP’s Associates newest member.
-Seth Delay: This FIP veteran is ready for anything.
-Joshua Master: Can he make an impact in FIP?
Be there this Saturday as FIP will never be the same again. The new chapter is here. It is a fresh start. You can witness this historic night live. Crystal River, FL will see FIP become “Redefined” on February 16th!!!
