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...

Scenic City Rumble (Mar. 4, 7:30 pm ET)

  1. Jay Lucas, Larry Lazard, & Terry Yaki vs. Logan Cruz, Shogun, & Wheezy T

Okay okay everybody loves a good rumble and everybody loves getting to see young rising talent shine and make a few new favorites in the process but c’mon, I *have* to highlight South vs. Jackson here— 90 years of combined experience in the ring, plus fifty more because the match will be officiated by referee Jerry Brown, who got his start in 1973 officiating for Nick Gulas!
