Results

IWTV Midwest Mixtape (May 26)

  1. Ace Steel over Arik Cannon
  2. Jake Lander (c) over Jake St. Patrick and Joey O’Riley to retain the Zero1 USA World Junior Heavyweight Championship
  3. Team SUP (Brett Ison, Dominic Garrini, & Kevin Ku) over Team Glory Pro (Air Wolf, AJ Gray, & Angel Dorado)
  4. Jeremy Wyatt (c) over Buddy Shepherd to retain the Gateway Heritage Championship
  5. Craig Mitchell over Gary Jay to become #1 contender to the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship (No Disqualification Match)
  6. Nick Iggy (c) over Ace Perry, “Spyder” Nate Webb, and Tripp Cassidy to retain the Bizarro Luchaversal Championship
  7. Robert Anthony over Darin Corbin, GPA, Gringo Loco, Laynie Luck, and Project MONIX (Freelance Scramble Match)
  8. Jordynne Grace over Allie Kat
  9. Kris Statlander over Orange Cassidy (c) to win the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship

It’s true, Freshly Squeezed has been dethroned by the alien herself! As much as I love Mr. Cassidy, this is a pretty exciting change for several reasons, not least that it shows that IWTV and their partner promotions are committed to pushing all members of their roster equally. And plus, y’know, Ms. Statlander is as good as she is weird, and she is very weird.

Check the VOD out on IWTV, folks.

As always...

Remember folks, no matter what type of wrestling you like, no matter how down you feel about the state of WWE, Impact, ROH, or any other “big-time” pro wrestling, there’s something out there for you. There’s a pro wrestling product that can hit you in the right spot and make you love wrestling like you thought you’d never be able to love it again. It’s there, I promise. You just gotta reach out and find it, and that, my friends, is what the Sermon on the Mat is all about.
