IWF: Latest Card For November 11th Show

Thanks to IWF for sending the following in:

Castletown Club, Sunderland
11th November 2006
Doors 6:30 – Belltime 7pm
Entry £4, Family of 4 £12 

The main event will see IWF Champion YOUNGSTA, who has been IWF Champion for over a year now, defend against JORDAN WRIGHT. Wright earned this shot by virtue of pinning his brother Joey in a ‘Five Count Match’ in September. However, due to head and neck injuries suffered in that match, doctors advised Jordan to take a couple of months off. Jordan refused, and has been pinned by Nick Damocles twice in the last month after vicious kicks to the head. Although it may not be a wise decision, Wright has chosen to fight against the odds and, realising he may not get another title shot soon, has refused to turn down the opportunity of challenging the IWF Champion.

Jordan’s brother ‘J-BIRD’ JOEY WRIGHT will go up against LEE KYLE following an incident at a recent IWF show in Bedlington. Joey cost Kyle a match against Billy Morrison and with it a shot at the IWF Ring of Faith Championship. These two have wrestled once before, with Kyle emerging victorious in December 2005, but Wright is a much improved wrestler since then and should prove a much more dangerous obstacle than on that occasion.

Having ‘earned’ a shot at the Ring of Faith title, ‘BIG MO’ BILLY MORRISON will take that shot in his home town against Champion LIAM ‘THE PLAYER’ ATKINSON. Atkinson is a hot favourite for this one, although, with the bout being scheduled to take place over six three-minute rounds, this could offer some hope for the old school specialist Morrison.

In an interesting development, D-Unit’s SHAUN AVERY will go up against ‘CHARVA MC’ PAULY C. Rumours abound that the ever popular Avery is very impressed by the rookie and is testing him to see if he is worthy of being offered a place in Avery’s D-Unit group. Avery has denied this, and claims to simply be using this match to warm up for the IWF title shot he is due at some point in November.

Shaun’s partner ‘BAD BOY’ JED MASTERS will face ‘FLOWER CHILD’ JONNY HOGARTH. These two are sizing each other up as they are both one half of one of the three teams scheduled to take place in a round robin tournament for the vacant IWF Tag Team Championship on November 18th. They have met before, with Masters taking the win, and a similar result will stand D-Unit in good stead for that tournament.

NICK DAMOCLES, successful recently against Jordan Wright, and himself in line for an IWF title shot, faces his former team mate in the ASBO group ROBBIE RYDER. Ryder is massively outsized by the 6’4″ Damocles, but is used to fighting men bigger than himself and will be no easy task . These two possess perhaps the two most devastating finishing moves in the IWF, Damocles with his Chokebreaker and Ryder with his ‘Down and Out’ flipping DDT.

After fighting to a double count out in Bedlington in October, ‘TWISTED MESSIAH’ ADAM CHRIST and BEN STONE meet one last time. Stone has a notable size advantage over Christ, but Christ is a sickeningly dangerous individual who will go to any lengths to ensure victory.
