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
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
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
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.
‘Gentlemania’ has treaded lightly into Vermin’s path – Will anyone help Jervis Cottonbelly?
Jervis Cottonbelly has been treading lightly (and accidentally) into Vermin’s unholy path since joining the roster of Championship Wrestling from Hollywood.
Jervis debuted on what, arguably, was the biggest day in Vermin’s history – the day they captured all of the gold in CWFH. It was a day when all eyes should have been on Vermin, yet a fair amount of that attention was stolen away by the debut of one of the more unique wrestlers in the history of the industry…and you don’t steal from Vermin.
Soon after his debut, Jervis was taken under the collective wings of both “Pretty” Peter Avalon (PPA) and Hobo. The two trained him to be more ‘fierce’ in his in-ring battles. Problem was both PPA and the Boxcar Superstar were sworn and bitter enemies of Vermin…and you don’t become friends with Vermin’s enemies.
It wasn’t long before Mr. Cottonbelly found himself scheduled for a pair of singles matches with members of Vermin. Though Cottonbelly came up just short in both contests, he very nearly won both. Lapses-in-judgment by Jervis allowed victory to slip away on both occasions. The victories would be described as ‘embarrassing wins’ for the members of Vermin…and you don’t embarrass Vermin.
In a show of friendship, Jervis agreed to tag team with his friend PPA in a battle against Vermin. After the match concluded, Vermin attempted to exact revenge on PPA for knocking out their leader Yuma, but Jervis stayed to protect his friend. This backed Vermin even further into a corner…and you don’t corner Vermin.
Watch Hollywood Heritage Champion "Pretty" Peter Avalon team up with Jervis Cottonbelly to take on Joey Ryan & Kevin Martenson of Vermin from last week's episode of Championship Wrestling from Hollywood at http://smarturl.it/CWFHTune-in to an all new episode this Saturday at 4PM on KDOCTV Los Angeles and 9PM on Youtoo America!
Posted by Championship Wrestling from Hollywood on Thursday, October 1, 2015
Jervis’ accidental feud with Vermin caught the attention of Vermin’s most-hated rivals of all – the owners of CWFH, the Marquez family. Nikko Marquez designated Cottonbelly as the leader of the anti-Vermin offensive and Cottonbelly set out to find compatriots in his struggles.
Cottonbelly started with a strong team – pairing with Los Primos Rivera and JR Kratos against the full ranks of Vermin (Joey Ryan, Ryan Taylor, Kevin Martenson and Bad Dude Tito). But, things quickly fell apart.
Kratos’ and Tito’s hatred for one another caused them to brawl into the locker room before the match could conclude. Vermin then isolated and decimated Danny Rivera. Rivera and his cousin quickly realized they had little to gain by feuding with Vermin, so they abandoned Cottonbelly. Ever the competitor, Jervis stayed to fight with Vermin and lost badly…because you don’t fight Vermin alone.
Undaunted, Cottonbelly again scoured the locker room for assistance. Yet again, it seemed like he had found it. He and his new partner, Douglas James appeared to be firing on all cylinders as their new team faced the same Los Primos Rivera that had abandoned Jervis a week prior. In the closing seconds of that match, with victory seemingly in-hand, a cell phone call drew James away from ring and Jervis was left alone again. And Jervis lost. Again.
The battles, the disappointments, the abandonment…the Vermin…it all has to be taking a toll on Jervis Cottonbelly. He must know that Gentlemania alone will not be enough to exterminate Vermin. As such, Jervis has promised to journey beyond the locker room walls, to scour the seas, to search the air, to ride the rails and to walk the highways until he can find a partner in his most-good of fights.
Will Jervis Cottonbelly ever find a partner he can count on? Or will this be the end of ‘Gentlemania’ as we know it?
