Summer Sizzler 2004 Rematch:
“The Phenomenal” AJ Styles vs. “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels vs. “The Notorious 187” Homicide
Originally, the main event of Night One: A Tribute To Spirit was supposed to be a rematch of the 2004 Match of the Year, AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels. Whenever “The Notorious 187” Homicide heard of this, he contacted IWC officials about being inserted into the match. His reasoning? He felt that the IWC fans were wrong, and the REAL 2004 Match of the Year was the match 3 months later where Homicide, Daniels, and Styles wrestled in a three-way dance. In April of 2004, Homicide took then-Super Indy Champion Styles to the limit in his IWC debut. He gave Styles everything he had, even an incredible Cop Killa. But Styles was able to rebound and rolled up Homicide for the win. The next month, Styles had his final title defense against Daniels. One of the greatest matches in IWC history saw both men put it all on the line, and it only ended when Styles nailed the Styles Clash for the victory. The following August was the three-way dance. In that match, Homicide was eliminated first by Styles, but the two brawled for several minutes afterwards until IWC security separated them. Styles ended up winning in the end, once again pinning Daniels. Two weeks later, Styles and Homicide had a Respect Match. Homicide brought the fight to the former champion, but Styles was on a hot streak in 2004 and got the win once again. Daniels and Styles have had many wars over the last 3 years, but Homicide never got his revenge on either man. These three have feuded over tag gold in TNA but this will be the first time all three are wrestling each other since their first match in 2004!
The 2006 Feud of the Year Revisited:
Low Ki vs. “Fabulous” John McChesney
It’s been called one of the greatest ri valries in IWC history. It started off as a young up-and-coming star named “Fabulous” John McChesney trying to win his first Super Indy tournament on April 29th 2005. His opponent on that night was on a tear. He not only destroyed rookie Jason Gory in the opening round, but he got the victory over his trainer and mentor, “The Notorious 187” Homicide, in the second round. Nothing could stop Low Ki on this night. That is, except his own overconfidence. He locked McChesney in a cobra clutch, but McChesney scaled the ropes, fell backwards, and Ki held on, pinning his own shoulders to the mat. McChesney had done it, he cemented himself in the upper echelon of IWC stars, becoming the sixth man to hold the IWC Super Indy Title, and only the 4th to win the Super Indy Tournament. Ten months later, both men met one more time. This time, McChesney was the confident champion, sure that he could overcome the one man he had the most trouble defeating in the past year. Unfortunately, once McChesney got hung up in the ropes and Ki delivered the Woe Is U double stomp, that was it for the champ. Ki defeated him for the Super Indy Title that slipped out of his grasp less than one year before. The following July, it was time for the so-called “rubber match”. Each man had one victory over the other. McChesney was out to prove to himself, the fans, and the world that he was on the same level as men like Low Ki. With Ki several moments away from possibly winning the match, the bell rang, signaling the time limit had expired. Neither man came out on top, leaving their series tied at 1-1-1. Low Ki promised that they would meet once more. December 9th, 2006 was that once more. The night of the event, both men had agreed to make the match a decisive 2 out of 3 falls match. Or so they thought. With both men one fall up on the other, then-Unholy Alliance members Sebastian Dark & HENTAI rushed the ring to ruin the party, leaving the match at a no-contest. The match, like their series, left both men at one win, one loss, and one draw a piece. One year later, their rivalry will finally come to a head. As promised by IWC Promoter Norm Connors, IWC Super Indy Champion “Fabulous” John McChesney will have to take on Low Ki on December 7th, night one of IWC’s A Call To Arms weekend. How fitting is it, at IWC’s 100th show celebration, that we revisit one of IWC’s biggest and best rivalries in the company’s history?
Special Attraction Tag Team Match:
The Motor City Machine Guns vs. The Burning River Brigade
Three former IWC Champions and one of the top contenders to the Super Indy Title at one point will be competing in this tag match! The Motor City Machine Guns of Alex Shelley & former Super Indy Campion Chris Sabin take on former IWC Tag Team Champions Josh Prohibition & “M-Dogg20” Matt Cross, the Burning River Brigade! Sabin & Shelley, former IWC regulars and finalists in Super Indy III, have put aside their differences and teamed up to form one of the best tag teams to come along in years. They were able to capture the Zero-One Max Tag Team Titles in Japan, as well as the UWA Hardcore Tag Team Titles in Canada, and the AAW Tag Team Titles in the Chicago area. No team in recent memory has been as successful as quickly as the Motor City Machine Guns. But, two men have taken exception to their quick rise in tag team success. Josh Prohibition & Matt Cross have been climbing through the tag ranks across the world for years, and captured the IWC Tag Team Titles on 2 different occasions. They’re considered to be one of the best teams in IWC history and want to prove to the “MMGs” and any wrestling fans who doubt them that not only are they one of the best in IWC history, but in wrestling history period.
One of IWC’s Most Brutal & Bloody Feuds Renewed :
Shirley Doe vs. Sebastian Dark
Shirley Doe made his return to IWC in grand fashion at November Pain 2 on November 11th. Helping his longtime friend & rival Super Hentai and friend Delirious in what appeared to be a handicapped match with members of the War Machine, Brent Albright, John McChesney, and Sebastian Dark. Doe and Dark immediately went after one another, brawling in the aisleway, and later, going after each other with chairs. Doe nailed Dark in the head with a chair, and finished him off with the Sillyhead 2. Later in the night, Doe made a huge impact to War Machine leader and Doe’s longtime rival Dennis Gregory. He revealed Gregory’s December 8th opponent to be “The Baddest Man in IWC” Raymond Rowe! Doe has come back with a vengeance and his old rival Sebastian Dark is in the cross hairs! The wars between Doe and Dark have been well documented over the years. Dark mysteriously came to IWC with the intentions of destroying Dark. But a year after their rivalry seemed to come to an end, Dark & Hentai joined with Doe as a part of the original Unholy Alliance, leaving the last 2 years of war between the three men a total mystery to everybody. But now that Doe has returned and Dark is aligned with his enemy Dennis Gregory, all bets are off and Doe is out for blood!
Non-Title Four-Way Tag Scramble :
The Gambino Brothers vs. BabyFace Fire vs. Sexual Harassment vs. The Cleveland Mafia
One of IWC’s biggest attractions in the last 2 years has been its incredible tag team division. And, it all started with these four teams. IWC Tag Team Champions The Gambino Brothers went from a moving company to a dangerous Italian family with an equally dangerous ringside entourage in Jimmy DeMarco, Vendetta, Viki Gambino, Flexor, and Ferrari. They’ve captured the IWC Tag Titles for a record-equaling 4 times and have dominated the tag division for the last 2-3 years and plan on continuing their dominance through IWC’s 100th show celebration. Longtime rivals Shiima Xion & Jason Gory put aside their differences and united based on an equal respect for the others’ abilities. They overcame the odds and captured the IWC Tag Team Titles last December in another four-way tag scramble over the same three teams they face on December 7th, and get one more shot on December 8th. The IWC tag team dynasty known as Sexual Harassment made their return on August 5th, 2006 as Eric Xtasy returned to IWC with his new partner, Justin Idol. After a year and a half of fun and games, Xtasy & Idol have finally gotten a new intensity about themselves and are more focused than ever. The Cleveland Mafia are one of IWC’s most brutal and boisterous tag teams. With the brains of J-Rocc and the brawn of Raymond Rowe, they’ve been taking over IWC one victory at a time. And the night after the tag scramble, Rowe gets his shot at singles glory as he takes on IWC Champion Dennis Gregory in a steel cage. IWC’s tag team scene has been unbelievable and incredible, and it only gets better on December 7th!
First Time in IWC :
“The Havana Pitbull” Ricky Reyes vs. Davey Richards
Two of the hardest hitting men on the IWC roster will step inside the squared circle on December 7th. “The Havana Pitbull” Ricky Reyes will take on IWC newcomer Davey Richards! These men have had run-ins on the West Coast, where both Reyes and Richards got their start. But this will be a first-time one-on-one match in IWC! The former IWC Champ Reyes is looking to get back into title contention following his series of matches with number one contender “The Baddest Man in IWC” Raymond Rowe. Richards, who will be wrestling only his third match in his IWC career, is right in the thick of the Super Indy Title scene. With the incredible action and depth of the contenders to the Super Indy Title, and Richards being only 3 matches into his IWC career, this shows you how much of an incredible athlete and wrestler Davey Richards really is! But he can’t look past Reyes. Reyes has beaten men in IWC such as Low Ki, Ray Rowe, Troy Lords, Larry Sweeney, Alex Shelley, Brent Albright, and many many more. This is sure to be a stand-out match on December 7th!
Super Indy V vs. Super Indy VI Winners :
Delirious w/ Daizee Haze vs. “Sweet N Sour” Larry Sweeney
This will be the first time meeting in IWC between these two men! In April 2006, Delirious went through Glenn Spectre, Matt Sydal, and Troy Lords to win the Super Indy V tournament. He held the title until November of that year, defeating such men as John McChesney, Christopher Daniels, and Lords. He continues to be one of the most popular performers on the IWC roster. Larry Sweeney won Super Indy VI in May 2007, defeating Jay Lethal, Azrieal, and Shiima Xion to win the tournament and become the champion. He was able to hold onto the title for only a month, succumbing to unfortunate circumstances, being cost the title by John McChesney and Dennis Gregory of the War Machine. On Saturday December 8th, Sweeney will get his rematch for the title inside a steel cage. But the night before, he must go through the former champion, who defeated McChesney on several occasions!
2006 Match of the Year Revisited :
“Balls Hot” Troy Lords vs. Super Hentai
Yet another IWC Match of the Year will be revisited at A Tribute To Spirit. Last year, at November Pain 2, “Balls Hot” Troy Lords battled it out with his rival, Super Hentai (then known only as HENTAI). With his pride on the line against his former mentor, Lords rose to the occasion and, with a top rope brainbuster, defeated the former member of the Unholy Alliance. One year passed, and HENTAI was kicked to the wayside by the War Machine when Dennis Gregory took over. But, as he was beaten down by War Machine members Brent Albright & Sebastian Dark at Revengeance 4!, who came to the save but Troy Lords. But Hentai didn’t take kindly to the help of “The Hotness” and the two came to blows before long. The next month, one year removed from their Match of the Year, at November Pain 3, Lords was attacked by War Machine members Dark, Albright, and John McChesney before Hentai led a group of IWC troops to the ring. What will happen when these two top IWC stars face off once again? Will it be a hate-fueled battle like their November Pain 2 match? Or will it be a respectful match in the human game of chess?

Belltime: 5:00 PM
IWC World Heavyweight Title Steel Cage Match:
Dennis Gregory defends against “The Baddest Man in IWC” Raymond Rowe
Dennis Gregory’s reign of terror over IWC began in May when he revealed his true intentions to everybody. He screwed Ricky Reyes out of the IWC Title and, along with “The Shooter” Brent Albright, formed what would eventually be called The War Machine. A month later, he brought back Unholy Alliance members Steven Colter and Sebastian Dark, who were fired from IWC in December 2006. Then, later that night, he completed the five-some by adding “Fabulous” John McChesney. Their reign over IWC has been one of dominance. Adding CJ Sensation to the ranks in August did nothing more than solidify their spot on top of IWC. But one man has been forging through the war. Raymond Rowe has exploded onto the scene as one of the most popular IWC stars in the past year. He’s done battle with Ricky Reyes to earn his shot at Dennis Gregory and the IWC title, but it was believed he’d earned his title shot AFTER the December double-shot. But Shirley Doe revealed to Gregory and the world that he had somehow arranged for Rowe to get his shot at Gregory sooner than expected: inside the steel cage at A Call To Arms 4: Controlled Chaos!
“The Samoan Submission Machine” Samoa Joe vs. 2 Cold Scorpio
Originally, “The Samoan Submission Machine” Samoa Joe was set to take on “The Baddest Man in IWC” Raymond Rowe on December 8th at A Call To Arms 4: Controlled Chaos. When Rowe defeated Ricky Reyes and became the number one contender to the IWC World Heavyweight Title, that all changed. Samoa Joe was still booked for December 8th, but he had no opponent. He contacted IWC’s offices, enraged because he was looking forward to taking Rowe to the limit and having a great wrestling match, like their July 7th encounter. IWC Promoter Norm Connors met with other IWC officials and they decided to sign a former WWE, WCW, and ECW star to take on Joe. A man who would no-doubt provide him with incredible competition, a fantastic match, and a man the IWC crowd has expressed a desire to see compete for IWC. IWC has officially signed… Samoa Joe vs. 2 Cold Scorpio! Fans may know Scorpio as a former WCW Tag Team Champion with his partner, a young Marcus “Buff” Bagwell. He is a former 4-time ECW Television Champion and former ECW Tag Team Champion with The Sandman. He is a former 2-time GHC Tag Team Champion for the NOAH promotion in Japan. And he is a former WWE star known to many as Flash Funk. However, Scorpio is best known as one of the forefathers of the aerial style seen all throughout wrestling today. His incredible in-ring style had never been seen across America before Scorpio stepped in the ring. Anytime you see a 450 Splash and a Tumbleweed (top rope corkscrew legdrop), Scorpio is the man who brought it to the forefront in professional wrestling. Still currently active across the US and Europe, Scorpio will be making his IWC debut at A Call To Arms 4: Controlled Chaos!
IWC Super Indy Title Steel Cage Match:
“Fabulous” John McChesney defends against “Sweet N Sour” Larry Sweeney
The feud between John McChesney and Larry Sweeney began at Super Indy VI. Larry Sweeney had just gone through Jay Lethal, Azrieal, and Shiima Xion on his way to becoming the Super Indy VI winner and IWC Super Indy Champion. All of a sudden, “The Fabulous One” appeared at ringside, attempting to spoil the victory of the new champion. Obsessed with the Super Indy gold, McChesney was incensed that Sweeney had won the title and he hadn’t. He demanded a shot at the title at the next IWC event, and he got it. Sweeney defended the belt against McChesney in July at Summer Sizzler 4 when Dennis Gregory hit the ring and bloodied Sweeney. That set in motion a series of events that led to Sweeney losing the Super Indy Title to McChesney. One month later, McChesney and Sweeney did battle in a baseball bat match, where McChesney once again cheated to win. Sweeney returned to IWC in November in a three-way dance to determine who would earn a shot at McChesney on December 8th. Davey Richards wanted to get revenge at McChesney for the events in his title match at Revengeance 4! in October, and Justin Idol was looking to break out into the IWC singles scene. But Sweeney had blood on his mind. Sweeney was the one with the most to gain, and after a 12 Large Elbow to Idol, he earned his shot. Sweeney demanded that his title match be held inside the 15-foot-high steel cage to stop any interference from the War Machine, and IWC Promoter Norm Connors granted it! Will Sweeney get his revenge on McChesney? Or will “Fabulous” prove he really is as good as he says he is?
IWC Tag Team Title Steel Cage Match:
The Gambino Brothers defend against BabyFace Fire
Mickey & Marshall Gambino and Jason Gory & Shiima Xion have been at war for months. After The Gambinos lost their Tag Team Titles to BabyFace Fire in the four-way scramble at A Call To Arms 3 in December 2006, they seem to have put a bullseye on BFF. They won the titles back in March and have dominated the tag division since then. All throughout 8-man tags and more, the Gambinos seem to dominate BFF no matter what situation they’re put into. In August, the Gambinos defeated BabyFace Fire, but during a champagne celebration, BFF attacked them and poured champagne all over Viki Gambino. This proved to be a big mistake, as Marshall then smashed a bottle over the face of Xion. Two months later, BFF looked for revenge against members of The Family, the Hollywood Balds. After Shiima Xion got the win, the Gambinos hit the ring with a billy club. Jimmy DeMarco & Vendetta went a little overboard, brutalizing both men with the billy club until senior official Bobby Williams suspended Vendetta for 60 days. In probably the most disgusting act, DeMarco, Marshall, Viki, and Flexor invaded the home of Jason Gory on Halloween, attacked Gory and his friends, and bloodied & tazed Gory on his own pool table. At November Pain 3, BFF and the Gambinos did battle in a street fight. The Gambinos proved their brutality, destroying BFF in a pile of thumbtacks. But their overzealous cousin Jimmy DeMarco proved to be more of a nuisance than anything. The Gambinos refused to grant BFF a tag title match inside the steel cage on December 8th. But when Jimmy D remained in the ring to continue using a tazer on Gory & Xion, Gory was able to take the tazer and hold DeMarco “ransom” of sorts. Gory demanded the cage match of else there’d be a “death in The Family”. The Gambinos granted it, and Gory got a measure of revenge and tazed DeMarco anyways! The war will finally come to an end on December 8th inside the steel cage!
“Double C” Claudio Castagnoli vs. “The Shooter” Brent Albright
Back in October, Claudio Castagnoli had a shot at the IWC World Heavyweight Champion Dennis Gregory. It was a hard-fought match-up between the two men, and Castagnoli came very close to capturing the title. However, Gregory was able to roll him up and pin him with a small package. After the match, Gregory attacked IWC ring announcer Chuck Roberts with a chair, injuring his vocal chords, and the IWC locker room emptied. Several members of the War Machine stable attempted to save Gregory, but were run off by members of the IWC locker room, and Castagnoli, who went after all the men with a chair. Claudio will take on one of the members of the War Machine, the hired assassin Brent Albright. Castagnoli and Albright have done battle in other promotions in the past few months, and each time, it’s been called a “match of the night” contender. With pride on the line here, you know it’ll be an explosive situation inside the ring!
Sexual Harassment vs. Southern Comfort
Justin Idol and Eric Xtasy are back on track. After several shaky months, unsure which direction to go, Idol & Xtasy are on the same page. Idol attempted to branch out into singles competition in November while Xtasy returned to his roots and hosted the return of the All Male Revue. After Idol’s attempt at singles action was impressive, yet unsuccessful, Xtasy hit the ring to let Idol know he was focused and would be by his partner’s side. The duo went on later that night to defeat former IWC Tag Team Champions Facade & Gargano with the Rose Creeper. With that victory behind them, they’re looking ahead to IWC’s huge A Call To Arms weekend. On Friday night, December 7th, they take on IWC Tag Team Champions The Gambino Brothers, and former champions BabyFace Fire and The Cleveland Mafia in a non-title four-way dance. On Saturday night, they take on the returning former tag team champions Tracy Smothers & Chris Hamrick, collectively known as Southern Comfort. Looking back on the IWC Tag Team Title history, only six teams have held the IWC Tag Team Titles since mid-2005: Southern Comfort, the Gambino Brothers, the Burning River Brigade of Josh Prohibition & “M-Dogg20” Matt Cross, The Cleveland Mafia, BabyFace Fire, and Michael Facade & Johnny Gargano. They might possibly be the first team to take on 5 of the 6 teams on that list in a 2-month span, the most former champions any team has faced in possibly the entire history of IWC!
Special Guest Referee: Glenn Spectre:
Delirious w/ Daizee Haze vs. “Showtime” Eric Young
Eric Young returns to IWC on December 8th! Hailing from his “undisclosed location”, Eric Young told IWC officials he would be in attendance on December 8th and wanted a match with one of the top IWC stars in the last few years. “Showtime” wanted to prove that he could hang with some of the best IWC has to offer. Enter…. Delirious. Delirious is a former IWC Super Indy Champion and the winner of the Super Indy V tournament. He’s defeated the likes of John McChesney, Troy Lords, Matt Sydal, Glenn Spectre, and Christopher Daniels during his Super Indy Title reign, and teamed up with Shirley Doe & Super Hentai to defeat The War Machine on November 11th of this year. “The Pied Piper of TNA” was one of the most popular performers who debuted for IWC this year. On the other hand, Delirious was one of the most hated men in 2006 IWC, but in recent months, he’s proven to be one of the IWC crowd’s favorite wrestlers. Obviously, the match between this two will border on the line of sane and ridiculous, but there is no doubt these two will perform to the best of their ability. How will the constantly paranoid Young react to the antics of the ridiculously crazy man from the Edge of Sanity?! Throw into the situation, the returning special guest referee, one of the oddest and charismatic men to enter an IWC ring, Glenn Spectre! The former “Wonderman” will be calling the action right down the middle, but everybody knows that Glenn can get out of hand with his antics. Will that have an effect on the outcome?!
IWC Past, Present, & Future 8-Man Tag:
Orion, ???, ???, & ??? vs. “Snapshot” CJ Sensation, Jimmy Vega$, ???, & ???
This HUGE 8-man tag only has three participants announced right now. According to IWC officials, the other 5 wrestlers involved will be announced on Friday December 7th. Orion is a former IWC Heavyweight Champion, making his long-awaited return to wrestling after a 5-year retirement. Sensation has been petitioning IWC officials and promoter Norm Connors about returnign to the ring, and until now has been turned down, due to health risks involved with Sensation’s previously broken neck. But he gets his chance now at the 100th show celebration. Vega$, another former IWC Champion, makes his return this weekend. A former prospect of WWE and OVW, Vega$ was the first man to hold the IWC Heavyweight Title twice. With no word on who the other participants in the match may be, this might be the most chaotic and historic match on IWC’s whole 100th Show Celebration weekend!
