Open Challange from Jake Dirden at Proving Ground Pro in Havana, Illinois on April 18th

THE HAPPENING hits Havana on April 18th when PGP returns to The Lawford!!!

Proving Ground Pro returns to the Lawford Theater(225 W Main, Havana,IL) at a time when the entire promotion has been thrown into chaos. The PGP Franchise title now rests with Blake Steel, after using both a low blow and a railroad spike to the eye, Steel took the title from “Dirdey” Jake Dirden. These controversial actions are yet to be addressed directly by Steel, in fact all we have heard from Blake is his refusal to honor Jake Dirden’s rematch for the Franchise title. Instead Blake Steel has chosen to take the title to Florida the weekend of THE HAPPENING (Saturday, April 18th) and compete at FIP and EVOLVE on the wwnlive ippv network.

Having already been in a position of stripping both Tag champs and a Cutting Edge champ in our promotions history we are reluctant to quickly strip our top belt from a new champ. At this time PGP has contacted Jake Dirden and apprised him of the situation, and offered him a deal…If Jake will offer up an open challenge for THE HAPPENING we will guarantee him a Franchise title shot at our May 23rd event(or strip Blake Steel at that point if we get a second title defense refusal). Jake has agreed to that. We have now opened up the PGP phone lines to see who might answer this challenge, as a bonus PGP will offer the taker of this open challenge a title shot in June if they are able to defeat “Dirdey” Jake Dirden!!! Stay alert for breaking news on this situation…We will have an opponent for Jake Dirden and answers from Blake Steel as soon as we can get them!!! As always, doors open at 6:30pm, first bell 7pm,$10($5 kids). Whatever happens, get to the Lawford on 4-18 and……..ENTER THE PROVING GROUND!!!

Proving Ground Pro adds Ovirload vs Johnny Wisdom to THE HAPPENING

Two amazing athletes return to PGP on April 18th for a first time meeting in the squared circle. Ovirload had a breakout performance at our last show as half of the tag team MegaOvir, Johnny Wisdom made us take notice at last years LIVING THE DREAM show in a 6 man scramble. This time these two meet in a singles match with their skills on full display. This is two seriously red hot newcomers to PGP, amazingly high skill levels on each competitor makes this match a must see and puts the roster on notice that there are always new serious threats arriving in the Proving Ground. Ovirload vs Wisdom could be the match that steals the show and blows your mind!!! The Proving Ground is where you go to experience never before seen independent wrestling action! No one else but PGP will give you Ovirload vs Wisdom because it’s just that damn cool!!! Don’t sleep on a chance to be there live and in person

Are the Young Bucks prepared for the Hooligans at St Louis Anarchy?

Posted by flairwhoooooo on January 23, 2014

 photo sla3_zps993a0ae7.jpg

The hardcore wrestling fan base are quick to point out that one of the top tag teams that you have never heard of is the Young Bucks. They consist of southern California heart throbs, brothers Matt and Nick Jackson, two young wrestlers that represent the west with their stereotypical glitz and glam, but make no mistake about the two are much more than just two pretty boys.

Many of the top teams went into a match against the Young Bucks, thinking they would be able to control them by grounding the brothers, only to find out that it is easier said than done. Matt and Nick has a second level that only the best teams possess, that quality has lead their opponents running out of gas, breathing for air and within moments looking at the ceiling at the bright lights, wandering what went wrong.

This has been the case with so many wrestling tag teams around the world that have tried their hand to keep up with the Young Bucks. For the past several years they have won fans over in great matches at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, Chikara, Ring of Honor, Evolve and most recently at New Japan Pro Wrestling capturing the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship by defeating Suzukigun (Taichi and Taka Michinoku).

Tag Team Championship and wrestling on most recently wrestling on IPPV this month for Evolve has the Young Bucks continuing their hot streak and adding more evidence to those that say that they are pro wrestling’s best tag team not with the WWE in 2014.

But is that about to change?

On February 28th and March 1st the Young Bucks have signed to wrestle at St. Louis Anarchy for their biggest shows in SLA History. The weekend is filled with many of the top talents in the Midwest today, mixed in with some of hottest young wrestlers in the world as Eddie Edwards, Davey Richard, Kyle O’ Reilly, Darin Corbin, Gerald James, Jeremy Wyatt, Bolt Brady Davey Vega, Brandon Espinosa and Mat Fitchett will all be in action for this Midwest Supercard.

The Young Bucks are set to meet the very popular young SLA tag team of Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett on the first night of the double shot. Vega and Fitchett are two of the young singles wrestlers that have come together to form an exciting team that will match speed vs. speed and heart vs. heart.

The Young Bucks could very well head into the second night of the 2014 SLA Gateway to Anarchy Weekend 0-1.

Win or loss on the first night there is a team that is looking to prove to the fans of the Young Bucks that their favorite team has met their match. That team is the Hooligans, Devin and Mason Cutter, ask any wrestler or fans in the Midwest who the best tag team in the area is and the answer is sure to be these two brothers, that have kept tag team wrestling alive. Ranked as the number one tag team in the MWR Coverage area, they are the only tag team to win the MWR Tag Team of the Year Awards twice after being chosen again in 2013.

We caught up with the Hooligans who had this to say on this huge match that is just over a month away “The Young Bucks are a world Traveled tag Team and one of the Best in the World. But in us they face a Hungry team one that wants what they have one that wants to prove they are the best. So in Alton il they best be prepared cause not only do they face The Hooligans They face us with we have nothing to lose and everything to gain.”

On March 1st, it will be 2 brothers vs. 2 brothers, the Jacksons vs. the Cutters in a war that will be of epic proportions. Not since the West Virginia’s, Hatfield family and Kentucky’s, McCoy’s went to war has there been a more talked about battle in this area.

Can the Young Bucks survive the onslaught that the Hooligans are capable of with a combination of, power and the underrated speed that the Cutter Brothers deliver early and often in a match?

The Young Bucks will hope to set up the Hooligans with excellent tag team moves such as the Aided dropkicks, the Crazy Dive, the Stereo 450° splashes Springboard splash (Nick) / standing moonsault (Matt) combination only to finish them with their breathtaking finishers the Early-Onset Alzheimer’s or More Bang for Your Buck (Rolling fireman’s carry slam by Matt followed by a 450° splash by Nick followed by a moonsault by Matt).

The Hooligans though have taught this generation of fans in the Midwest what true tag team wrestling is about by taking them to school as they cut the ring in half with perfect precision. That are masterful by creating chaos and havoc from start to finish that has left their opponents confused and bewildered questioning themselves on what happened after the Hooligans hit them with their own moves the Hooligan Rush and the Hooligan Driver.

The time has come for the Hooligans, will they be able to show the world that they are indeed the most underrated tag team today or will the Young Bucks add them to the list of victims that thought they were up to task to challenge them?
