Dubi meets the IHW Fans November 2010 with a special appearance at MECW

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 10, 2010

By Dubray Tallman

We were excited to be a pat of Independent Hardcore Wrestling’s final show of 2010 in Jerseyville Illinois on November 21st.

IHW has had some great matches throughout the year. Add great matches with some buildings full of fans; IHW has to be considered among the finalist for the MWR Promotion of the Year in 2011.

Our good friends Drew and Gary was there to hang out with me during the matches making the night that much more fun.

The MWR wrestler of the night was Neil Diamond Cutter. It had been forever since we saw the youngest Cutter. Neil had his hands full on this night when he was set to face off with the powerful Chris L.O.G.A.N and a very biased referee Ace Roberts. Prior to his match though he wore the MWR shirt to the ring and threw it to young Alex.

Alex was in attendance with his brother Dalton and was able to get his picture taken with a very sore Neil Diamond Cutter.

Andrew Feruson from Grafton Illinois was impressed with Graves who had demolished young Johnny Griffen in his very first match. Graves who can be very intimating at times was in good spirits when we asked for a picture with his new fan.

Nathan Franke from Jerseyville Illinois was glad to see wrestling come to his hometown. Nathan was quick to let me know that he wanted his picture with Brandon Aarons.

Aarons has not only won over the hearts of the women in the Midwest but the respect of the men as well.

I sometimes get so busy that I forget to have my picture taken with a wrestling star as well. On this night one guy that was easy to remember was called The Manimal. During his match with Chaz Wesson the Manimal was whipped and chopped in and out of the ring. I had to give him respect though because he did not back out from the punishing blows that was heard throughout the building. I was happy to have my picture taken with the Wildman.

On this night that would not be the only show we would make. As soon as the last bell was rung at IHW, Brian was determined to make it to MECW 30 minutes down the road in Woodriver.

We were able to make it to the main event featuring MECW Champion Eric Allen taking on Bailey Mannix in a 30 Minute Iron Man match. Brian said the clock had 27 minutes 32 seconds on the clock when he took his first shot of this awesome match. In the final minute Mannix would pin Allen and once again becoming the MECW Champion.

After the match MECW fans Andrew Davis and Blake Young asked to get their picture taken with the new Champion. To make it that much sweeter Brian was able to get MECW Stars Mathew McDarby and Evan Money to in the picture as well.

In the next edition of Dubi meets the fans we were at MECW’s final show of the year on December 4th.

You can catch me at MMWA-SICW this Saturday to be a part of Dubi meets the MMWA-SICW fans. Please join me for a great night of wrestling.

IHW Heavyweight Champion

After capturing his first PWE championship title, back in April, with an impressive victory over then United States Champion Mark Sterling, Brandon Aarons looks to prove that he is not just the flavor of the month in Pro Wrestling Epic.

Aarons looks to gain respect as he prepares for arguably the toughest challenge of his young career, when he steps into the ring with current Ring Of Honor World Champion, Tyler Black.

To followers of the independent professional wrestling landscape, Tyler Black is a staple, not only because of his present status in ROH, but also because of his legitimate claim to being one of the top pro wrestlers on the planet, having been ranked at #17 on Pro Wrestling Illustrated Magazine’s “PWI 500” in 2009.

While Brandon Aarons is not yet a household name across the globe, he has spent the better part of the last year, establishing himself one victory at a time defeating some of the best talent that the midwest has to offer.

Key wins over current NWA Central States Champion Mark Sterling,as well as Mike Sydal, (brother of WWE superstar Evan Bourne), both of whom he defeated for their respective titles, have helped to raise the stock of Brandon Aarons in Pro Wrestling Epic.

In addition to those accomplishments, Aarons is also the current flagship of Independent Hardcore Wrestling, having held the Heavyweight title since February.

Can his momentum carry him to the next level of what can only be decribed as his breakout year? Find out on June 26 in Mt. Pulaski.
