IWC World Heavyweight Champion “The Hardcore Icon” The Sandman & RAVEN vs. Daivari & Dennis Gregory
Originally scheduled to be a tag team match, Dennis Gregory & Daivari were to take on IWC World Heavyweight Champion The Sandman and his old ECW tag partner Too Cold Scorpio. Scorp has unfortunately had to pull out of Saturday’s event due to unforseen circumstances. Rumors were flying as to what would happen with Saturday’s main event. IWC officials got word from The Sandman that he called an old friend from ECW & WCW. They’ve battled alongside one another, and brought out the worst in each other during their years in professional wrestling together. The Sandman’s partner will be none other than RAVEN! The former ECW World Heavyweight Champion, ECW Tag Team Champion, WCW United States Champion, WWE Hardcore Champion, NWA World Heavyweight Champion, and one of the most influential men in professional wrestling will be making his long-awaited return to IWC. In 2003, Raven came into IWC, battling CM Punk, Shane Douglas, and Christopher Daniels to name a few. He is one of the few men who can claim they competed in a Super Indy Tournament, as Raven took on Christopher Daniels in Super Indy II. Many IWC experts have referred to Dennis Gregory as a “master manipulator” referring to his intricate plot to regain the IWC World Heavyweight Title while he was in Afghanistan for the US Air Force, and his formation of the War Machine stable. Denny’s manipulation skills are nothing compared to Raven. Called by many to have the greatest mind in professional wrestling, Raven is one of the smartest, and eerily cunning men in the sport. His mind control over his followers in the Raven’s Flock and, more recently, Serotonin, has been well documented. After preparing for Sandman & Scorpio for almost a month, how will Gregory & Daivari rebound from this incredible announcement and prepare to face these two men?!
IWC Super Indy Title Match:
“Sweet N Sour” Larry Sweeney defends against Delirious w/ Daizee Haze
After months of struggling and fighting his way back to the title, Super Indy VI winner Larry Sweeney defeated “Fabulous” John McChesney in a “Texarkana Death Match” on January 19th. Now, Sweeney must fend off all comers. HIs first challenger? Another Super Indy winner and former champion, Delirious! In April 2006, Delirious won the Super Indy V tournament and held the title for several months, cementing himself as one of the more dominant champions in recent memory. On the first night of IWC’s big December A Call To Arms double-shot, Sweeney and Delirious faced off for the first time in IWC. While Delirious was able to dominate the majority of the match, Sweeney came out on top after a school-boy roll up. Will Sweeney be able to once again defeat Delirious? Or will the mad man from the Edge of Sanity come out with the Super Indy Title once more?
The Cleveland Mafia Explodes:
“The Baddest Man in IWC” Raymond Rowe vs. “The Big Daddy of Destruction” J-Rocc
Ray Rowe would no doubt be IWC champion today if not for his trainer, mentor, and best friend for nearly two years, J-Rocc, slamming a steel cage door on Rowe’s head so violently and aggressively that it knocked the door from its very hinges. After weeks of speculation, J-Rocc finally explained his heinous actions, making it clear his motives were all about the jealousy and bruised ego over Ray Rowe’s success and popularity eclipsing his own. Ray Rowe had heard enough and stormed to the ring to confront his former ally, and not even J-Rocc’s best knockout shot with a steel chair could even cause the emotionless assassin to flinch. Rowe’s controlled aggression exploded onto J-Rocc as security and wrestlers frantically tried to pull the men apart. Following the fracas, the match was signed for Accept No Limitations… Ray Rowe will have his chance to face J-Rocc one-on-one
Super Indy VII Qualifying Match:
Jerry Lynn vs. Johnny Gargano
IWC Promoter Norm Connors sent out an e-mail to the light heavyweights on the IWC roster. In it was an invitation to compete in a Super Indy VII Qualifying Match on February 16th. The first person to respond back and sign a contract for the match was none other than a former IWC Tag Team Champion, Johnny Gargano. Gargano has never competed in singles competition in IWC, frequently tagging up with Michael “The Bomber” Facade. While Facade has signed to take on the Gambino Brothers, Gargano will get his shot at Super Indy VII. He’ll have his work cut out for him on February 16th, as his opponent is none other than “The New F’N Show” Jerry Lynn! Jerry Lynn is a veteran of the professional wrestling business, and revolutionized professional wrestling as we know it. His series of matches with “The Lightning Kid” Sean Waltman and Rob Van Dam redefined professional wrestling as we know it. He’s already competed for the Super Indy title, in April 2002, but now he has his chance to enter the tournament itself. He already won the prestigious Super 8 tournament in Delaware this year. Can he go 2 for 2 and win Super Indy VII? Or will the young upstart Gargano make a name for himself in singles action right off the bat with a win over Jerry Lynn?
Super Indy VII Qualifying Match:
Shiima Xion vs. Jason Gory
An unprecedented SEVENTH Super Indy Qualifying Match has been added to the IWC schedule this year. IWCwrestling.com received word from IWC officials that both members of the IWC Tag Team Champions BabyFace Fire, Shiima Xion & Jason Gory, had put in bids to wrestle in a Super Indy Qualifying Match with IWC Promoter Norm Connors. With Gory being a former Super Indy Champion, having held the belt for about an hour at Super Indy VI, and Xion making his way to the finals of Super Indy VI last year, Connors was hard-pressed to disagree. In fact, as Gory handed over the Super Indy Title to tournament winner Larry Sweeney, Shiima Xion was raising the hand of the man who defeated him in the finals. This is not only the first time IWC Tag Team Champions have faced each other one-on-one, not only the first time in IWC history there have been 7 qualifying matches for the Super Indy Tournament, but this is the first time in IWC history that the IWC Tag Team Champions are wrestling in singles matches to attempt to qualify for Super Indy! Super Indy VII is accepting NO limitations and making history!
Super Indy VII Qualifying Match:
The Human Tornado vs. “M-Dogg20” Matt Cross
IWC fans have been long-awaiting the debut of the SoCal stand-out known only as The Human Tornado. Since he burst onto the scene in 2004, this dancing, flying, pouncing, wrestling sensation has taken the wrestling world by storm. Getting his start in the SoCal wrestling scene, Tornado’s entertaining and high-flying style has earned him the PWG Heavyweight and Tag Team Titles in the last few years. IWC fans may have seen Tornado on the short-lived 2007 MTV series, Wrestling Society X, or as “El Snowflake” in the major motion-picture Nacho Libre, starring Jack Black. He has become one of the most requested wrestlers on the IWC Message Forum in recent months. As we’ve seen in the past with “Spyder” Nate Webb, Southern Comfort, and many other stars, IWC officials listen to the fans, and as a result, we’ll be seeing the Human Tornado in IWC in a Super Indy VII Qualifying Match on February 16th! Tornado’s opponent on that night will be a man very familiar to IWC fans, “M-Dogg20” Matt Cross. Cross has mostly been known for tag team success in IWC, regularly teaming with his Burning River Brigade partner Josh Prohibition, and capturing the IWC Tag Team Titles on two seperate occasions. But Cross has seen singles action in IWC before. His IWC debut came in July 2002 as he was a last-minute entry into the IWC Heavyweight Title Tournament that month. His opening round match against Shirley Doe featured appearances by Kamala, Jerry Lawler, Chris Hero, and Balls Mahoney. He has also had a Super Indy Qualifying Match in 2005 as he took on “Wonderman” Glenn Spectre at Wild At The Palisades. Both were unsuccessful, and M-Dogg would love to qualify for Super Indy VII and prove to IWC fans that he is more than just a tag team specialist.
Super Indy VII Qualifying Match:
“The Havana Pitbull” Ricky Reyes vs. “Snapshot” CJ Sensation
“The Havana Pitbull” Ricky Reyes welcomed “Snapshot” CJ Sensation back to professional wrestling on January 19th. Sensation may not have liked his welcome, though. After CJ nailed Reyes with two Kidnappers, his signature maneuver, Reyes kicked out and locked Sensation in his own signature dragon sleeper. Sensation’s previously injured neck could not hold out, and Sensation tapped out. Sensation was so frustrated after the loss, he took it out on some Coalition of Competition trainees helping him out of the ring. Now Sensation gets a rematch, but this time, with an added bonus: the winner will enter Super Indy VII on April 25th. Sensation competed in the very first Super Indy Tournament back in 2002, in one of the most memorable matches in the history of the tournament, a loss to Low Ki. Ricky Reyes entered Super Indy V in 2006, defeating Alex Shelley in a 2006 Match of the Year Candidate before going on to lose to “Balls Hot” Troy Lords in the semi-finals. Both men know what’s at stake. Reyes has been hungry to get back into title contention since he lost the IWC World Heavyweight Title at Super Indy VI. Sensation will stop at nothing to prove to IWC officials that he is able to compete regularly in IWC rings, and a bid in Super Indy will help his case more than anything.
The Hollywood Balds vs. Sexual Harassment
Sexual Harassment are back. After almost a year of struggling on the undercard in IWC’s incredibly strong tag division, Justin Idol and Eric Xtasy got themselves back on the same track, got serious, and are now back to being one of the most successful teams in IWC history. The Sexual Harassment dynasty continues to be built as Xtasy & Idol are showing signs of the dominance of the Xtasy & Rodgers Harassment tandem from years ago. Six teams have held the IWC Tag Team Titles since August 2005: The Gambino Brothers, BabyFace Fire, The Cleveland Mafia, Facade & Gargano, the Burning River Brigade, and Southern Comfort. In the last 4 months, Harassment have defeated 5 of those 6 teams, coming out on top over Facade & Gargano in November, the Gambinos, BFF, the Mafia, and Facade/Gargano on December 7th, and Southern Comfort on December 8th. Now, they look to continue their tag dominance over a team looking to get themselves back into title contention. The Hollywood Balds reunited last month as they defeated former IWC Tag Champs Facade & Gargano, after Vendetta was suspended for 60 days. With Jimmy DeMarco & Vendetta looking more fiercely competitive than ever, will they be able to defeat the red hot Harassment?
The Gambino Brothers vs. Super Hentai & Michael Facade
IWCwrestling.com previously reported that Michael “The Bomber” Facade had signed to take on the 2007 IWC Tag Team of the Year, The Gambino Brothers, for February 16th. But, his former IWC Tag Team Championship partner, and regular teammate, Johnny Gargano, had yet to be heard from. Days later, it was announced Gargano was seeking singles success and taking on Jerry Lynn in a Super Indy VII Qualifying Match on February 16th. That left Facade without a partner… until now. One of Facade’s trainers at the Coalition of Competition, Super Hentai, has informed IWC officials that he will be Facade’s partner against Mickey & Marshall Gambino. Not wanting one of his former students to enter into a dangerous match alone like that, the Super Indy I winner interjected himself into the situation, taking Gargano’s place in the match. The Gambinos had targeted Facade early in the night on January 19th when Marshall went after him with an aluminum baseball bat after Family members The Hollywood Balds defeated Facade & Gargano. When the Gambinos took on Sexual Harassment later that night, Facade (sans Gargano) interfered in the match, crotching Mickey Gambino on the top rope. With both Facade and the Gambinos wanting revenge on the other, this situation is likely to explode with Hentai now in the mix!
Plus all the fun and surprises you’ve come to expect from IWC!!!
