The Icon Takes Home the Gold – Chris Hargas Wins the SICW Classic Championship

Posted by flairwhoooooo on May 24, 2017

MWR would like to congratulate Chris Hargas for capturing the SICW Classic Wrestling Championship this past weekend at the 58th Anniversary of the Wrestling at the Chase Super show at SICW. Though we do not approve of Hargas’s tactics and that of his manager Travis Cook, there is no denying that in the past year Chris Hargas has upped his game and is deserving of holding this prestigious title.

Flash Flanagan vs. “The Icon” Chris Hargas(w/ Travis Cook), Classic Title Tournament Final, Best-Of-3-Falls Match, Special Guest Referee “The King Of Chaos” Ricky Cruz:

Hargas defeated The Big Texan, Gary Jackson, and Ken Kasa to reach the finals; he was the fresh competitor compared to Flash who had already competed and was favoring his arm. Cruz had plenty of history with both Flanagan and Travis Cook, but he had promised to be unbiased. Cook couldn’t resist getting involved and that led to Hargas winning the first fall; Flanagan attempted to suplex Hargas back into the ring, but Cook grabbed Flash’s foot and held it as Hargas fell on top for the pin in 8:12. Travis kept sticking his nose into the matchup until Ricky finally hauled off and belted him off the ring apron. Flanagan fought back to even the score in 11:05 after a Tree Of Woe double-stomp off the top rope.

As Flash hoped to maintain his momentum, Cowboy Marc Houston made his presence known; Flash left the ring to confront Houston during the rest period between falls. That didn’t end well as Houston ran Flanagan shoulder-first into the ring post…Big Daddy seemed to be encouraging Houston’s actions from the sidelines, so perhaps he’s found a new protégé. Cook demanded that Flanagan be counted out to give Hargas the final fall, but Cruz allowed Flanagan a longer rest period for the sake of fairness. Unfortunately the damage had already been done; Flash did his best to stay in the fight, but Hargas locked on the Crippler Crossface…Flash never surrendered, but he passed out in the hold and the referee called for the bell in 17:23 after three arm drops!

“The Icon” Chris Hargas had become the new SICW Classic Wrestling Champion, much to the delight of his manager who finally had “his” championship back!
