Web Exclusive NWA National Title Bout

Since defeating Colt Cabana for the NWA National Championship, “The Outlaw” James Storm has been making it clear that he’s not with the National Wrestling Alliance. James Storm returned to the NWA at Crockett Cup to make his mission statement known and announce that NWA Officials didn’t want him to go after the Ten Pounds of Gold. Now with NWA TV coming to Atlanta on Sept 30 and October 1, NWA National Champion James Storm is out to prove he’s not only the best wrestler in the world, but that he’s taking no prisoners. Watch the full match here, courtesy of the National Wrestling Alliance:

SCUM and ROCKNES Settle Their Score in a Cage at RCR!

“YUMA” and Kevin Martenson, VERMIN.

2019 has been a year of inquisition for the galaxy’s favorite space detectives, YUMA and BHK. The ROCKNES Monsters have been trying to solve the mystery of who attacked them backstage to keep them out of a highly anticipated United World Tag Team Championship bout months ago. The clues seemed to lead to VERMIN, a duo of body snatchers who have taken the forms of YUMA and BHK to wreak havoc and frame the former champions for their own misdeeds. Just when the detectives were about to crack the case, we received this transmission from VERMIN during a broadcast:

 

“We’ve seen a lot of things, but we still never saw that coming,” says a distraught YUMA. “Reno SCUM, you were two of our most powerful allies. Two of Earth’s most powerful allies. You betrayed us. You’ve broken our trust.” This kind of treachery demands retribution from the ROCKNES Monsters and is not something to be taken lightly. Already with a plan in mind, BHK offered these remarks to Adam Thornstowe and Luster the Legend.

“SCUM, we don’t know if you’re in cahoots with VERMIN or what, but we’re not going to be taking any chances. When we finally get you in the center of that ring at the Red Carpet Rumble, it’s gonna be surrounded by a Steel Cage!” HollywoodWrestling.com got in touch with Reno SCUM to get their answer to this violent challenge.

“ROCKNES, you want a cage match?” shouts Luster the Legend, “Yeah that sounds pretty fun. I think I want to do a cage match too!” With an approving nod from Adam Thornstowe, it was set. These two teams will meet in a Steel Cage at the Red Carpet Rumble!

Both teams have Cage Match experience all over the west coast. Longtime fans will remember ROCKNES Monsters having an infamous Steel Cage Match on the program against PPrAy years ago. We’ve also seen YUMA and BHK  (or possibly VERMIN) locked inside against teams like Los Luchas on more than one occasion. Luster the Legend and Adam Thornstowe have had their share of brutal Cage Matches themselves, leaving a trail of barbarity behind them while coming up victorious. Since anything can happen in this type of match, the Cage is reserved for foes looking to settle the score once and for all.

“We’re not looking for a war with Reno SCUM,” declares YUMA, matter-of-factly. “We’ve been in wars. This isn’t gonna be some war that lasts a long time. It’s gonna be one battle. We’re doing this once and we’re doing it right.”

You’re not going to want to miss a second of the action. Make sure to be at the Oceanview Pavilion on August 18th to see the ROCKNES Monsters take on the Reno SCUM inside a Steel Cage as Championship Wrestling from Hollywood presents the 2019 Red Carpet Rumble!

Television Championship Bout Announced for RCR

“When I won the United Television Title for the fourth time, I solidified myself as THE BEST. But five? That is legendary greatness,” declares Scorpio Sky, still riding high off his record-breaking fifth title reign as Television Champion. Sky recently won the title in an impromptu match following a hard hitting bout between Royce Isaacs and Bateman. Following a well placed kick to the crotch with the referee’s back turned, Sky would once again call himself United Television Champion. But this title victory wasn’t going to sit quietly with former champions.

“After Bateman and I took each other neck-and-neck down the line, Sky could have moonwalked into the ring in street clothes and taken the TV title,” explains Royce Isaacs. “That’s not me though. That’s not what I want. Royce Isaacs wants Scorpio Sky at his best. I want him well rested, well fed, with a full training camp. I want no excuses.” Isaacs has been adamant as of late about winning his matches honestly, with no outside help or rule breaking. Since putting down tough opponents like Ranchero Rogelio in recent weeks, Royce has legitimate claim to be a title contender. But is Royce more deserving than former Champion Bateman, who has yet to receive his rematch?

After considering these arguments, Nikko Marquez has decided to sanction a Triple Threat Match for the United Television Championship at Championship Wrestling from Hollywood‘s Red Carpet Rumble on August 18th. This type of bout puts Scorpio Sky at a sizable disadvantage. Not only does he have to defend his title against two opponents at once, but Sky does not even have to be involved in the decision to lose the Television Championship. Never before has Sky had so much to lose in such unpredictable circumstances and must prepare himself mentally in order to keep what he holds dear.

However, possibly the most desperate man in this contest is Bateman, who not only lost his TV Title to Scorpio Sky under dubious conditions, but also has lost his valet Sarah Wolfe due to the influence of the Upper Class. HollywoodWrestling.com caught up with Bateman to see which of his opponents at the Red Carpet Rumble will be his main target.

“The focus is Scorpio Sky. I’ll do whatever I need to do to get my hands on him,” grumbles Bateman. “But Royce, with his rosy cheeks and his nose in the air all these months has forgotten one thing. You walk around with your nose in the air long enough, someone’s gunna come along and break it.”

United Television Champion Scorpio Sky isn’t phased by the comments of his opponents. As he heads into the Red Carpet Rumble on August 18th at the Oceanview Pavilion, Sky has these words to offer. “Anybody that wants to try and come take it from me, I invite you to do so. We all know how it’s going to end. Different opponent, same result. Get used to greatness.”

At the July 28th Championship Wrestling from Hollywood Television Event, the Reno SCUM defended their United World Tag Team Championships against the formidable team of Ryan Taylor and Tomaste, better known as the Soul Burners. After being involved in several multi-team title matches, Taylor and Tomaste had been preparing for a direct shot at the Champs for months. What was set to be an exciting contest already, was made more exciting before the bell even rang with the appearance of former Tag Team Champions.

ROCKNES Monsters have had a bone to pick with Thornstowe and Luster since they were mysteriously attacked backstage months ago. The reappearance of VERMIN brought a red herring to the trail, but before long YUMA and BHK learned the truth about the United World Tag Team Champions. With intergalactic injustice rampant, the ROCKNES Monsters opted to get involved with the bout on July 28th before it even began. CWFH officials kept the teams apart, but this distraction may have been the opening that the Soul Burners needed.

 Taylor and Tomaste have had a stop and go run at the United tag team division since joining forces last year. Ryan Taylor, a former tag champion himself with Joey Ryan, has been trying to get back to the gold since 2017. An unlucky teaming with Dicky Mayer led him to finding energy with Tomaste unlike any partner he has had to date. Tomaste has suffered injuries keeping him out of action for different lengths of time over the last calendar year. Any amount of momentum gained by the Soul Burners was cut off with these lapses in active competition. With both men healthy and on the same page, Taylor and Tomaste were able to capitalize on the momentary lack of focus from Adam Thornstowe and Luster the Legend to capture the United World Tag Team Championship on July 28th. The staff at HollywoodWrestling.com congratulate the Soul Burners on their win and looks forward to future defenses.
