Pro Wrestling Phoenix Live 2015 Mid-Year Report

2015 has been a wild ride for PWP Live, seeing all sorts of amazing matches and rivalries. We kicked things off with our Year of the Phoenix 10 event in January, featuring an exciting match between former WWE Superstar Bob “Hardcore” Holly and a man who competes all over the MWR coverage area, “Showtime” Bradley Charles!

Also, Darren “Thunder” Russell successfully defended the PWP Championship against Branden Juarez in a Street Fight!

After the match, Abu Colossus brutally attacked Russell and demanded he put the title on the line. Russell, never one to back down from a fight, did just that, but Abu was too much and was able to become the 18th PWP Champion.

Russell looked to get a rematch for the PWP Championship but was sidelined by Chainsaw King, whom he had a series of matches with throughout spring, culminating with a dangerous Dog Collar Match at our Chained Chaos event in April.

Russell was victorious, sending King back into the shadows.

In March, we started a tournament to crown the first ever PWP Rising Phoenix Champion. It came down to “ Chainsaw King and “The Greece Pit” member L-Ray w/ “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece. At our 10th Anniversary Spectacular event in May, L-Ray was able to cheat his way to victory and become the first man to hold that title.

That night was full of amazing moments, as former WWE Superstar Scotty 2 Hotty went one on one with “The Greece Pit” Member Joey Daniels w/ “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece. Greece ran his mouth a little too much and ended up on the receiving end of The Worm!

“Babyface” Tony Cortez became the first man in history to win two PWP Championships on the same night, as he was victorious earlier in the night in a Triple Threat Match for the PWP Championship that included Abu Colossus & Darren “Thunder” Russell.

Then in the main event, “Simply the Best”, which is the team of Cortez & Hype Gotti, defeated Jeremy Wyatt & Mark Sterling in a brutal Ladder Match to end their year long reign as PWP Tag Team Champions.

The results of that match led Wyatt to challenge Hype Gotti to a Loser Leaves PWP match, and it all went down at our July event. Years of rivalry would come to a close as both men put everything they had on the line. Wyatt thought he had the match won, but with Hype’s foot on the rope, the match was ordered to continue, and in the end, Hype Gotti ended the career of Jeremy Wyatt at PWP Live!

Most of our events are available on DVD via our website, however nothing matches the experience LIVE at one of our events!

Pro Wrestling Phoenix Returns Nov 22nd in Council Bluffs, IA Darren “Thunder” Russell Vs. Branden Juarez

Posted by flairwhoooooo on November 13, 2014

 photo pwp22222_zpsa9adc37d.jpg

Fans, as we head into our second to last event of 2014, we’d like to thank each and every one of you who have made this 9th year of Pro Wrestling Phoenix one of our best ever! 2015 will mark 10 years of PWP, but before we get there, we have some very exciting events, including our next one, on November 22nd at the Council Bluffs National Guard Armory. Let’s see what’s in store!

Pro Wrestling Phoenix Heavyweight Championship: Darren “Thunder” Russell Vs. Branden Juarez

There may not exist two men on the current PWP roster with more history than these two men, Branden Juarez & Darren “Thunder” Russell. Russell was able to achieve the highest accolade in PWP, when he defeated Juarez for the Heavyweight Championship in August. Now, Juarez gets his rematch. He will stop at nothing to win back the title. But with the fans by his side, Russell has more momentum than ever. Will he retain his Championship, or will Juarez become a two time PWP Heavyweight Champion? Do not miss this exciting contest on November 22nd!

Pro Wrestling Phoenix Tag Team Championship: Jeremy Wyatt & Mark Sterling Vs. “Simply The Best” Hype Gotti & “Babyface” Tony Cortez

2014 has been an amazing year for the PWP Tag Team Division, and on November 22 we add what will surely be another incredible contest to that list of matches, when Jeremy Wyatt & Mark Sterling defend the Tag Team Championship against Hype Gotti & “Babyface” Tony Cortez. Hype Gotti pinned Mark Sterling in September and Jeremy Wyatt in October, holding pinfall victories over both of the Tag Team Champions. After Wyatt & Sterling attacked Gotti in September, Cortez made the save, showing solidarity with his long time friend/adversary. Now, Simply The Best look to become two time PWP Tag Team Champions. But can they win the match when it counts? Or will Wyatt & Sterling continue their path of dominance that began in May when they first won the titles? Be there to find out!

What’s Next For “The Passion” Zac James?

Fans at our October event witnessed a horrific event as a masked man entered the ring and destroyed two new wrestlers in PWP that “The Passion” Zac James had a hand in training. When James hit the ring, he was added to the pile of bodies left behind by this monstrous man. But who is this person, and what do they want in Pro Wrestling Phoenix? And why did they attack those three men for seemingly no reason whatsoever? Zac James promises he will get to the bottom of it on November 22nd, and he won’t stop until he gets some answers!

Plus, all your favorite PWP Stars, including the return of Ryan Slade to PWP, plus “Showtime” Bradley Charles, Geek Singh, L-Ray with “Manager Supreme” Axel Greece, and much much more!
