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
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
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
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!
