IWF CHAMPIONSHIP ‘BAD BOY’ JED MASTERS v FLOWER CHILD
The main event will see IWF Champion ‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters put his belt on the line against IWF Championship committee’s mandated number one contender, Flower Child. This is the challengers first shot at the IWF Championship, but he comes into the match in great form, having pinned Masters to win the IWF Tag Team Championship in February. He will also have the advantage of being accompanied to the ring by his tag team partner ‘Twisted Messiah’ Adam Christ. Both champion and challenger are most at home in power based matches and both are known for their ferocious chops, so, as they are well matched in these areas, it could be that the wrestler who manages to surprise their opponent will have their hand raised.
WHEELIE BIN MATCH LEE KYLE v JOEY WRIGHT w/Billy Morrison & Lexx
The feud between Lee Kyle and Joey Wright, which has continued since December 2005 finishes on 5th May with IWF’s third ever Wheelie Bin match. The only way to win is to put your opponent in the bin and shut the lid. The first of these matches took place in 2000 when the legendary Peter ‘Pitbull’ Wilson beat Black Dragon before pushing his defeated opponent from a balcony. 2004 saw the Avery Brothers defeat 3cw’s ‘The Vegas Connection’ in the second of these matches. With Kyle recently beating Wright in a ‘Loser Wears a Dress’ match, he has the advantage, although Joey will have the advantage of Lexx and Billy Morrison on the outside.
IWF RING OF FAITH CHAMPIONSHIP JORDAN WRIGHT v ?
IWF management have received a telephone call from North East’s Finest’s spokesman Chris Whitton challenging Jordan Wright to defend his Ring of Faith Championship against a mystery opponent on 5th May. The name of this challenger has not been revealed, Whitton simply stating that he will be the fourth member of the North East’s Finest. Like the fighting Champion he is, Jordan accepted the request immediately, but must know, that by accepting the challenge of a man he will have no time to prepare for, he is putting his championship in serious jeopardy.
‘NOTORIOUS’ JOHN RITCHIE v ‘BIG MO’ BILLY MORRISON w/Lexx
An interesting match-up, as British wrestling legend ‘Notorious’ John Ritchie makes his IWF debut against one half of Wright Stuff 2000 ‘Big Mo’ Billy Morrison. The fans will be faced with an interesting dilemma; faced with a choice of the sneaky, underhand Ritchie and the hated Morrison, it seems that they will have to cheer who they hate the least rather than who they like the most.
PAULY C & ROBBIE RYDER v TEAM BEAUTIFUL
London’s Team Beautiful (‘Beautiful’ Dan Beckwith & Barbell Bateman) come to the IWF for the first time on 5th May. They will face the popular team of ‘Rank Outsider’ Robbie Ryder & ‘Charva MC’ Pauly C. Bateman & Beckwith are two very powerful grapplers who also possess great speed and flexibility, they have been absolutely dominant throughout the Southeast and plan on being equally as dominant in the Northeast. Ryder and Pauly recently came close to winning the IWF Tag Team Championship, falling short only when wrongly disqualified. They will be pleased to hear that the winner of this match will get a shot at those titles somewhere down the line.
TIM PERVITO v ‘TWISTED MESSIAH’ ADAM CHRIST v ‘JUNIOR DRAGON’ LEWIS BEARDSLEY v RICKY ‘VAN’ JAN w/Big Gary
IWF Junior Academy Champion ‘Junior Dragon’ Lewis Beardsley continues his efforts to prove himself against more experienced wrestlers as he steps into this four-way match. The second competitor is one-half of the IWF Tag Team Champions, ‘Twisted Messiah’ Adam Christ. With his partner competing in the main event, Christ has entered this match and will be the favourite to pick up the losers share of the purse. Thirdly, Tim Pervito returns to the IWF, bringing with him a reputation as one of the countries top tag team wrestlers. This is a chance for him to impress as a singles star. Finally, after seeing Beardsley gain higher profile matches, Big Gary has campaigned for his client Ricky ‘Van’ Jan to be placed into this match. As with the Junior Academy Champion, this is a chance for Jan to show that he can hang with the big boys.
BAD BAD LEROY BROWN w/Big Gary v EL PELIGRO
This match is a huge mismatch in terms of size, as the popular El Peligro goes one-on-one with the devastating newcomer Bad Bad Leroy Brown. This match came about due to Brown’s manager Big Gary becoming increasingly frustrated about his other client’s (Ricky ‘Van’ Jan) failure to beat Peligro. Surely the plucky Mexican will have little chance of upsetting the monstrous newcomer? We shall see…
