A Sweet Deal for Tag Team Wrestling

Regular readers of this blog or those who watch My 1-2-3 Cents on YouTube, know that I complain a lot about the tag team scene on the national level.  I am however, impressed with the way things are looking on the independent scene.  Chikara continues to impress me, but today I want to focus on Pro Wrestling Collision.

For the purposes of full disclosure, I am on the commentary team for PWC, and bottom line the point of this blog is to promote our next show, which is Saturday, April 27 at the Boys & Girls Club of Carbondale.  Bell time is 7 p.m.

I feel like tag team wrestling means something in Pro Wrestling Collision.  Champions Ace Hawkins and Brandon Espinosa have defended their titles more than any other champions in the company.  They've faced the inter gender duo of Alex Castle and Angelus Lane, the Submission Squad, and King Entertainment.  Each one of these matches has resulted in a victory for Ace and Espy.  KOA, the Kings of Armory, will return to face the champions Saturday night.

Sugar Dunkerton and Aaron Epic make up this duo.  They're .500 in Pro Wrestling Collision and favorites among the fans.  The two made an excellent impression on the fans and with those in the locker room.  I'd seen Sugar work before in Chikara as both a member of FIST and The Throwbacks, and I like his style.  He's a great person outside the ring as well.  I don't know a whole lot about Epic, but I was impressed with his work and attitude at the show KOA was on.

I can't say enough about Ace and Espy either.  This team has been in some of the best matches on the card.  Their battle against Matt Cage and Christian Rose last fall took ladder matches to a new level for me.  It ranks among the best matches I saw in 2012 and I'm honored to have had the privilege to call it.

If you live in the tri state region, I highly recommend the drive to Carbondale.  For $10 you're going to get a great night of wrestling action, not just from these two exciting tag team, but also Collision champion Heath Hatton will defend his gold.  Joey O'Riley's No Limits title is up for grabs against Zakk Sawyer.  Plus, in what may be the grudge match of the year so far, Shane Rich looks to gain revenge on the behemoth Bull Bronson.  This rivalry has been intense to say the least.  Plus Matt Cage will tangle with Farmer Billy Hills.  More matches will be announced Saturday, so if you make it out, please stop by and say hello.
