Suede Thompson Looks To Fill The PP3 Cup With Suederade

Suede Thompson is on a roll lately. After scoring a victory over DJ Hyde, Hobo and Astro Viajero at our December 4th TV taping to qualify, Thompson may have momentum on his side heading into the tournament. ‘Your favorite wrestler’s favorite wrestler’ followed the United Wrestling Network loop up from Championship Wrestling from Arizona, where he is a fan favorite as well.

Light on his feet in the ring and on the dancefloor, Thompson’s quickness and smoothness could make him an early favorite in the tournament. If he were to win, one can only imagine how quickly and deftly he could dance to the ring to catch a champion napping.

Be there for the 5th Annual Percival Pringle III Memorial Cup on Sunday January 15th at the Oceanview Pavilion in Pt. Hueneme! More details on this FREE event at https://www.hollywoodwrestling.com/event/11517

A Well-Urn’ed Legacy: The Percival Pringle III Memorial Cup Turns 5

December marks the beginning of “PP3 Cup Season” in Hollywood and it is always an incredibly bittersweet occasion. As the tournament turns five, it serves as a sobering reminder the CWFH’s beloved friend, Percy Pringle III has been gone for five years. However, it’s always sweet because it marks the beginning of the Hollywood calendar.

What makes the Percival Pringle III Memorial Cup so important? What makes it so unique? To understand that you have to understand…

mg_5171bThe Man

Do you know Percy Pringle III? Chances are the answer to that question is a very loud “Ohhhhhh Yessssss!”, even if you don’t know him by that name. He was a legendary manager – a flamboyant, wealthy and over-privileged southerner who always got what he wanted. He was portrayed by Mr. William Moody – who also went on to portray another legendary manager – Paul Bearer. At Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, Percy served as a manager, a commentator, a mentor and a friend.

For the delight of his fans, Percy carried his legendary ‘urn’ from his Paul Bearer days with him to all appearances. No one knew that Percy’s last trip to Hollywood would be his last and, as fate would have it, he left his urn behind – resolving to just pick it up ‘next time.’ Sadly, there was no next time. But the iconic urn lives on. With the blessing of his family, Percy’s urn was mounted to a trophy stand and the Percival Pringle III Memorial Cup was born.

The Tournament

At the end of the calendar year, the entire roster competes in qualifying matches, leaving eight competitors for the tournament. A bracket is then formed and a single-elimination winner-take-all set of matches take place at the beginning of the new year. The tourney always seems to ‘set the ball rolling’ each year in Hollywood. The faces that compete become the faces to watch. New feuds erupt as each wrestler vies for their shot at the most unique prize in all of professional wrestling.

The Privilege

The winner of the cup is afforded ‘Percy’s Privilege’. The man who had it all always got what he wanted…and the holder of his cup gets to enjoy that privilege as well. Whomever holds the PP3 Cup can use it to challenge for ANY of the championships defended at Championship Wrestling from Hollywood at ANY time. Once the cup is awarded, every Champion in CWFH must constantly be looking over their shoulder.

Just a few short weeks ago, a decimated Friendship Express sat near-lifeless in the ring after retaining their United Tag Team Championships in a brutal battle with the Classic Connection. The world sat in shock as the badly wounded duo were all but powerless to stop “Big Nasty” Eric Watts, who marched to the ring with the PP3 Cup and used Percy’s Privilege to single-handedly win BOTH tag team championships…for himself! Since then, the tag team division has been in utter turmoil – a testament to the power of the Cup.

 

We can only begin to wonder what shocking moment awaits Hollywood when the PP3 Cup (and Percy’s Privilege) fall into new hands in 2017.

THREE Huge Main Events This Sunday In Pt Hueneme!

Three Episodes means Three Huge Main Events This Sunday!

FREE this Sunday at 3pm at the Oceanview Pavilion (click here for info)

MAIN EVENT #1 – Big Duke vs DJ Hyde in a STRAP MATCH

duke-dj-11-13

DJ Hyde has been one step ahead of Big Duke for months. Every time Duke turns his back, DJ strikes. Every time Duke is about to get his hands on DJ, DJ escapes. And so it has gone. At one point DJ hurt Duke so badly that he put Duke in the hospital, leading to DJ being fined and suspended. So it comes as no surprise that Duke was thrilled to be granted a Strap Match against his rival.

With Duke literally bound to him, DJ won’t be able to get away. But, it can’t be ignored that Duke is also volunteering to be bound to DJ Hyde – the Lariat God. Was this all just a part of DJ’s plan? Both men seem to think they have the other right where he wants them. We’ll see who is right this Sunday!

MAIN EVENT #2 – Jarek 1:20 vs. Yuma in a NON-SANCTIONED MATCH

yuma-jarek-11-13

It’s been a rough year for Yuma. After working his way back from injury to reclaim the throne as leader of Vermin, he quickly saw the group at Red Carpet Rumble. On his own, he quickly became a target.

In his first post-Vermin moment, he attempted to address the crowd at the Oceanview Pavilion when an unsettling video of Yuma playing with his newborn son suddenly found its way onto the video monitors. For weeks Yuma’s family was stalked and voyeuristically documented until Yuma finally was able to capture the culprit in the act and unmasked his tormentor as Jarek 1:20.

Jarek employed an army of clowns to torment Yuma, kidnapping him and hanging him from the ceiling of the Pavilion for hours. Despite the requests of his doctors and family, Yuma recovered and returned to strike Jarek at his own birthday party. With the emotional and physical stakes running so high, the Marquez family cannot (in good conscience) sanction a match between the two; however, both have agreed to waive their rights and settle their differences in the ring.

MAIN EVENT #3– Bad Dude Tito vs. “Pretty” Peter Avalon for the Hollywood Heritage Championship

ppa-tito-11-13

Bad Dude Tito has been crying “conspiracy” toward the Marquez family and their “favorite child” – Avalon – for quite a while. His claims gained some odd traction at Milestone. In their Championship match, which Tito earned by winning the Red Carpet Rumble, Nikolas Marquez made a fast/awkward (and seemingly incomplete) three-count in the place of a downed official.

The confusing moment sent Peter home with his belt, sent Tito home furious and sent a nervous Marquez home quickly. The conspiracy theory seemed proven right; however, until Avalon stepped through the curtain to inform Tito that he didn’t like the end of their first match anymore than he did and that he would be willing to offer his wronged challenger a rematch. Tito accepted and has done something unprecedented since then – he’s stayed quite.

A focused/angry Bad Dude could be Bad News for Avalon. But, CWFH has been here before – writing Avalon’s eulogy before a championship match. Yet, Avalon just officially climbed to the top of the record books as the longest-reigning champion in Hollywood history. Hard to imagine there could come a day where it wasn’t PPA All Day.

MILESTONE: Hollywood Heritage Championship: Tito vs. Avalon – What you need to know

Milestone-FBeventheader

GETTING READY FOR MILESTONE:
Hollywood Heritage Championship Match
 

Bad Dude Tito vs. “Pretty” Peter Avalon (c)

 

BACKGROUND

  • Milestone marks the one-year anniversary of “Pretty” Peter Avalon’s capturing the Hollywood Heritage Championship after earning the shot at the 2015 Red Carpet Rumble.
  • Bad Dude Tito won the 2016 Red Carpet Rumble.
  • Tito has suggested that Avalon is the hand-picked champion of the Marquez Family – with whom Tito has virtually never not been at war.
  • Tito’s anger will be on full display at Milestone.
"Bad Dude" Tito won the Rumble - not even the Marquez Family can deny him his title shot now.
“Bad Dude” Tito won the Rumble – not even the Marquez Family can deny him his title shot now.

WHAT’S AT STAKE

  • Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. Hand-picked or not, Avalon has been a fantastic standard bearer for the Marquez family business. If that belt leaves with Tito, what becomes of CWFH?
Milestone will be the 365th Day of PPA All Day - will it be the last?
Milestone will be the 365th Day of PPA All Day – will it be the last?

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

  • Marti-knees – Avalon’s most devastating maneuver comes from behind – you can’t see it coming. It has been his best advantage in his career and one he may need to overcome Tito’s size.
  • Vermin? – Are they truly dead? Is Tito really on his own? We never can really know for sure. Such is the identity (or maybe legacy) of the legendary group.

MILESTONE: Bateman’s ‘Step Right Up’ Challenge for the United Television Championship – What you need to know

Milestone-FBeventheader

GETTING READY FOR MILESTONE:
United Television Championship Match – Step Right Up Challenge

______________ vs. Bateman (c)

 

 

BACKGROUND

  • Bateman promised he’d take James Morgan’s United Television Championship – he did.
  • Bateman promised he’d make “The Old” James Morgan show up – he did.
  • Bateman promised he’d take everything from James Morgan….he did. He retired him at Red Carpet Rumble. A cornerstone of the locker room – gone in an instant.
  • The next thing Bateman has promised is a successful title defense at Milestone from anyone willing to “Step Right Up”.
Bateman has taken Morgan's manager, his title and now has come for his career.
Bateman has proven to be a man of his word…and that should be the scariest thing of all.

WHAT’S AT STAKE

  • If Bateman isn’t stopped soon, how will he be stopped ever? Who will be next? Where will it end?
Will Jarek 1:20 be at Bateman's side, or will he be hiding from Yuma?
Will Jarek 1:20 be at Bateman’s side, or will he be hiding from Yuma?

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

  • Jarek 1:20 – Normally to call a man “another man’s puppet” is an unflattering label. Jarek revels in being Bateman’s puppet and will almost certainly be at ringside. Though he recently was revealed to be Yuma’s stalker, so he may not want to join his master in a public setting with Yuma on the warpath.
  • The Other Shoe – With Bateman, it is always seconds away from dropping. But only he ever seems to know where, when and how.

#RCR16 – Thatcher v. Drew Gulak – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

RCR_FBeventheader

#RCR16: Timothy Thatcher v. Drew Gulak – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
In an unprecedented SPECIAL ATTRACITON match, Timothy Thatcher will square off against his long-time (and current) tag team partner, Drew Gulak.

BACKGROUND

  • Thatcher & Gulak have been one of CWFH’s most successful tag teams of all time.
  • Both have launched successful singles careers; however, their bond remains strong.
  • The chance to test their mettle against one another seemed like a special treat

 

WHAT’S AT STAKE

  • Bragging Rights. The only thing that Thatcher and Gulak care about more than each other is wrestling itself. Their brotherly relationship will likely survive this legendary encounter, but whomever wins probably will get first dibs on riding shotgun as their travels continue.

 

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

  • A Show – Just because they don’t hate each other doesn’t mean they won’t wrestle each other with every ounce of energy they have. These are two of the premier cruiserweights in the world and they know each others’ styles inside and out. The stage is set for an epic display of talent and one-upsmanship.
  • THAT Moment – With all that said, if one punch lands too low or if one ego proves softer than the other, these are the moments where bonds once thought unbreakable come apart. We’ve seen families crumble inside the ring before, Thatcher and Gulak will face the same risks.
