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.

- John Wayne Murdoch Open Invitational
- AKIRA vs. Alex Ocean vs. Nolan Edward vs. Reed Bentley
- Atticus Cogar vs. Shane Mercer
- Bam Sullivan vs. Orin Veidt
- Masada vs. Rickey Shane Page
Florida’s No Peace Underground are back with another night of no-ring ultraviolence and from Kirk vs. Parrow through JWM’s open challenge to the main event of Masada vs. Page, this one’s stacked with pain.
