Longtime Friends & Partners Battle for MO Title, Sept. 24
Posted by Ben Simon on September 21, 2016
Cape Girardeau’s only pro wrestling company has an intriguing match set for the Osage Centre on September 24. Friends and tag team partners, Brandon Espinosa and Ace Hawkins, battle it out for Espy’s Missouri Heavyweight belt.
Brandon’s eighth defense comes after Hawkins had to withdraw from several tag matches in St. Louis that were to feature the duo (named “The Eternals”) together. Ace’s reasons for the supposed abandonments are unclear.
Espinosa said, “I trained Ace; we’ve been friends for years. I don’t know what his problems are right now. If he doesn’t like tagging with me, maybe he’ll like this better. If he cares to show up on Saturday, he’ll get a shot at my Missouri belt.”
Also on the card, CCW Champion Brandon Barbwire takes on Austin Lane in a non-title match. Lane dazzled in a losing effort against Ricochet last month, and he will earn a title shot with a victory over the champ.
