Could the PP3 Cup help Ryan Taylor find his zen?

Ryan Taylor is one of the most decorated wrestler in the history of Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. He has won the Hollywood Heritage Championship. He has won the United Tag Team Championships. He has won the United Television Championship.He’s even won the Percival Pringle III Memorial Cup before (though he was issued a rare defeat when he attempted to cash in ‘Percy’s Privilege‘).

What does this tell us about Ryan Taylor? It tells us that, when he can focus and execute – he can win ANYTHING. That’s the good news for Ryan Taylor.

The bad news for Ryan Taylor is that, these days, he seems to be very visibly struggling with his focus. Taylor may have taken the demise of Vermin hardest. Fans taunted the return of “Cryin’ Ryan” as a devastated Taylor watched the group implode. Since that day, he has tried to become a more meditative, controlled wrestler and man.

But his balance is anything but zen, these days. His furious temper has found a target in Espiritu (with whom he qualified for this tournament at the December 4th TV taping). He enters this tournament with one eye on the prize and one eye on his hated rival. Can Taylor find his focus?

JERVIS COTTONBELLY

Why Can Not We Be friends?

‘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!

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?

The Vermin Solution

By: Grant Baciocco

The problem is clear. As much as we hate to admit the truth, Vermin is now in an incredible position of power. They hold all the Championships in Championship Wrestling from Hollywood and, because of this, they have been able to force Dave Marquez to lift “The Vermin Rule” putting the entire roster in danger of out of the blue attack by these pieces of garbage.

Now, I am not a wrestler, so I can’t step into the ring and take the fight to Vermin directly, but I have been doing a lot of thinking about some possible solutions to the Vermin Problem. Here’s what I’ve come up with.

1. THE FORMER CHAMPIONS SOLUTION

IMG_0325

This is the most immediate solution that comes to mind. The former, recent, CWFH champions must band together as a unified force to run Vermin out of Hollywood. The Hobo, Scorpio Sky and PPrAy need to group together as one and reclaim what is theirs. We’ve seen signs of these four men working together in the past, but it seems as if they never fully commit to the idea. I believe the main hurdle in this scenario is that you have just a huge clash of styles that aren’t gelling together properly. The Hobo’s brawling, Scorpio Sky’s technical superiority and PPrAy’s fun loving but lighting fast offense seem to mix well on paper, but combining these different elements in the ring is a completely different matter. So far it has yet to happen, but I’m still holding out hope.

2. THE REVOLUTION SOLUTION

Che Cabrerra and Sacha Darevko are two of the most dominating wrestlers in Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. Their combined power and, frankly, underhanded tactics in the ring make them feared opponents for anyone to be standing across the ring from. They are definitely more powerful than many of the members of Vermin, but can they get the job done? I think it’s possible, but unfortunately, I feel Revolution might be too busy trying to bring their own Revolution to fruition to worry about Vermin. Also, as of late, it seems there might be a bit of a divide between Che and Sacha and that’s something that would definitely need to be worked out before they were to face Vermin. Mistrust is something Vermin feeds off of and they would only use that to their advantage. The other obvious disadvantage here is the numbers game. Che and Sacha would need to add a few more members of Revolution in order to properly take on Vermin.

3. THE STU STONE SOLUTION

As much grief as Stu Stone gives, well, everyone who knows him, I have to admit he is pretty crafty when it comes to laying out ring strategy. Perhaps Stu can rebuild up the ranks of The Family Stone and make a charge at Vermin. Perhaps Stu’s tendency to bend the rules a bit would be like fighting fire with fire when it comes to Vermin. With Vermin holding all the titles, they are certainly a target for Stu’s machinations, as he’s all about getting the gold. Unfortunately, Stu seems a little pre-occupied with James “Main Event” Morgan and his war with Othello to be able to marshal forces to go up against Vermin.

4. THE MONSTER SOLUTION

Bateman_C

This one is a little ‘out of the box’ but perhaps that’s just what we need here. For the past several weeks, we’ve watched as Bateman has assembled his Cirque du Monstres. He’s collected three men who haven’t made huge waves here in Hollywood and refocused them into sadistic carnival attractions that frighten just about anyone who looks upon them. Perhaps this is just the weapon we need against Vermin. Unpredictability. No one is quite sure what Bateman’s ultimate goals in CWFH are, but I would love to see him lead his team of Imbécile, Jarek 1:20, and Buffoon in a charge against Vermin. I don’t think Vermin would know what to think.

5. THE UNKNOWN SOLUTION

IMG_3306

Perhaps there’s a combination of wrestlers on the roster who could band together that we just haven’t thought about yet. Timothy Thatcher and Drew Gulak would certainly not shrink away from going toe to toe with Vermin. Recently, the team of Cold Cold World debuted, led by Ceasar B. Black. What a foursome they would make with Thatcher and Gulak! I could see them putting a big hurt on Vermin. And where is Willie Mack in all this? With his experience, I think he would be a great general to lead the charge against Vermin. Or perhaps right now, at the CWFH WrestleCenter, there are some surprises for Vermin that are just waiting to make their big break. I don’t know.

These are several solutions I have come up with. If you have thoughts, let us know in the comments below or on Facebook or Twitter. The bottom line is…SOMETHING has to be done about Vermin, and quick!
