Welcome back to the Sermon on the Mat, your weekly one-stop shop for news from the wider world of wrestling beyond the big cable TV monoliths that get all the coverage.

Coming soon...

ECWA 24th Annual Super 8 (Sept. 19, 7PM Eastern)

  1. ECWA Super 8 Tournament Matches
  2. Jay D Luscious & Mr. Ooh La La (c) vs. Marvelous Ones (Greg Spitz & Teddy Fine) (ECWA Tag Team Championship)
  3. Joey Ace vs. Sam Shields (c) (ECWA Heavyweight Championship)

ECWA’s legendary indie tournament is back and this year’s field is stacked— Vinny Pacifico, Devantes, Eric Martin, KTB, Chris Rockwell, Matt Tremont, Archadia, and the very good professional wrestler formerly known as Dasher Hatfield are set to compete in this year’s event. The first round tournament matches haven’t been announced yet, but ECWA have two title matches set and ready.

Check it out live on IWTV, folks!

Warrior Wrestling Stadium Series (Sept. 19, 7PM Central)

  1. Chris Bey & Ray Lyn vs. Luchasaurus & Tay Conti
  2. Alex Shelley vs. Jonathan Gresham
  3. Ace Austin & Madman Fulton vs. Violence is Forever (Dominic Garrini & Kevin Ku)
  4. Jake Something vs. Sam Adonis
  5. Lee Moriarty vs. Tre LaMar
  6. Jordynne Grace vs. Kimber Lee
  7. Dezmond Xavier vs. Trey Miguel vs. Zachary Wentz (Warrior Wrestling Championship #1 Contender’s Match)
  8. Brian Pillman, Jr. (c) vs. “Warhorse” Jake Parnell (Warrior Wrestling Championship)

I missed including the first of these Stadium Series shows here in Sermon but better late than never, right? Hard times, etc. Anyway, this is a killer lineup— Shelley/Gresh alone would sell me on just about any show— and it seems like a good time.

Check it on FITE, friends.

Beyond Shangri-La Magistral (Sept. 20, 1PM Eastern)

  1. Daniel Garcia vs. Matt Makowski
  2. Bullet Joe vs. Richard Holliday
  3. Beverage Barons (Megabyte Ronnie & Puf) vs. Nouveau Aesthetic (BLANK & Still Life With Apricots and Pears)

Beyond Wrestling are back with a studio special, and while only three matches have been announced as I write this, you know everybody’s going to be going all out because this roster for this show is entirely composed of folks that haven’t gotten to wrestle for Beyond since the pandemic started!

Check it out live on IWTV, folks.

Free matches here!

Besties in the World (Davey Vega & Mat Fitchett) vs. Curt Stallion & Jake Something

I’m gonna level with you, folks— I don’t know either of these men from Adam, but this bad boy from Limitless Wrestling is making the grade entirely because of the thumbnail.

Last but not least, we’ve got some action from Black Label Pro for y’all. The ultraviolent king Nick f’n Gage stands in Jake Something’s way, 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.
