Check it out live on IWTV, folks.

Free matches here!

El Phantasmo vs. Shane Strickland

Starting things off with a bang here courtesy of Canada’s ECCW, folks! You know ELP from his time in Bullet Club and the King of Swerve from NXT, but venture back to the past as they do battle in British Columbia!

Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent?) vs. LAX (Ortiz & Santana)

And we’re following it up strong with a reminder from the folks at Beyond that your shiny new cable TV wrestling match? They did it first.

Erick Stevens vs. Orange Cassidy

And now we head over to Black Label Pro for this fine slice of the Erick Stevens comeback tour as he goes head to head with ol’ Freshly Squeezed himself. Enjoy!

Brian Myers & Pat Buck vs. Team Tremendous (Bill Carr & Dan Barry)

Back to Beyond for this next one, and c’mon, Myers and Buck dressed as convicts to wrestle Team Tremendous? How can I pass that one up?

Kasey vs. YUU

And now we head across the pond for some top shelf women’s action courtesy of Pro Wrestling: EVE! Sprinty fresh violence on display, enjoy!

Chris Sabin vs. Heidi Lovelace

And thence back here to Chicago’s AAW for some intergender action! The future Ruby Riott faces off with Chris Sabin, don’t miss it!

Space Pirates (Shane Sabre & Space Monkey) vs. the Boys from Jollyville (Russ Myers & T-Money)

Glory Pro’s match of the week rolls on with this bad boy between Canada’s up-and-coming tag team titans and the Midwest’s best kept secret!

Hallowicked vs. Kimber Lee

From F1RST Wrestling up in Minnesota, we’ve got another intergender match, this one featuring two former Chikara Grand Champions who are no stranger to each other. Enjoy!

Logan Stunt vs. Shane Mercer

Kicking things over to GCW for this next one, the younger Stunt faces a stiff challenge in the form of the Iron Demon!

Hijo de Fishman & Negro Navarro vs. Hijo de Solar & Solar

Shifting gears again, we’ve got some lucha libre tag team action from long lived indie IWRG, courtesy of +LuchaTV on YouTube. And it’s another chapter in a long, long feud, as legendary rivals Negro Navarro and Solar clash. Don’t miss it!

Doom Patrol (Chris Dickinson & Jaka) vs. Viking War Party (Alexander Rudolph & “Warhorse” Jake Parnell)

Before he was Warhorse, Jake Parnell was the Littlest Viking, and he and Alexander Rudolph (and sometimes Frank Wyatt) brought the tag team violence like nobody’s business. Here they’re up against Beyond tag team aces the Doom Patrol, and it’s a doozy!

Jack Evans vs. Ricky Marvin

Back to IWRG, we’ve got some singles action between two men who need no introduction, enjoy!

Alex Shelley vs. Suge D

Now this is a matchup! Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment made a beauty of a fight between indie legend Shelley and a man you might know better as Pineapple Pete, don’t miss it!

Gentleman’s Club (Chuck Taylor & Orange Cassidy) & Team Tremendous (Bill Carr & Dan Barry) vs. Team Pazuzu (Chris Dickinson, Jaka, Ortiz, & Santana)

I’m not gonna lie, folks, this is going up for two reasons— 1, if I remember correctly, it has a (pun not intended but welcome) tremendous low blow exchange in it, and 2, RIP FloSlam, look at that lovely banner!

Kinky Party (Jack Jester & Sha Samuels) vs. Mike Bird & Wild Boar

Back across the Atlantic for this one from Scotland’s Insane Championship Wrestling, folks! It’s tag team street fight action, short and to the point, enjoy!

Leyla Hirsch & Wheeler YUTA vs. Pretty Proper (Lady Frost & Victor Benjamin)

Back around to Beyond, we’ve got this intergender tag team match featuring four of the fasted rising stars on the Eastern seaboard, enjoy!

AR Fox vs. Willie Mack

AAW have another one for us this week, with two of the best high flyers in the game!

Joey Janela vs. Matt Cross

Last but not least, we’ve got another one from Beyond this week and it is a clash of the titans, my friends! Bad Boy vs. M-Dogg, don’t miss it!

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.
