What to Watch Coming out of Warrior Wrestling 3....
Warrior Wrestling 3 went down at Marian Catholic High School on Jan. 5 and it was quite possibly, the best event the promotion has put together in its brief history.
The card featured some of the best wrestlers in the world in a jam-packed card. However, prior to the action kicking off, fans who purchased a Fan Fest ticket were treated to a Meet and Greet experience unlike any other. Fans were able to meet their favorite superstars, take photos with them and receive autographs for an amazingly affordable price. Very few, if any, promotions offer this type of interactive experience at a family-friendly cost.
Sam Adonis Picks up the Win… But Pat Monix is Far From DoneOne of the main storylines heading into the event was a clash between “the world’s hottest heel”, Sam Adonis with teammates Super Crazy and Dragon Lee facing off against Adonis’ rival in Warrior Wrestling, Pat Monix. Local favorite Monix was backed by Daga and professional wrestling legend Ultimo Dragon. The crowd erupted when Ultimo Dragon made his entrance and routinely chanted, “You Still Got It” as Ultimo Dragon flashed his skills in the ring. The action spiraled out of control numerous times as both teams scored a pinfall victory before Team Adonis picked up the win. Pat Monix was visibly upset backstage and it’s safe to say, the rivalry between Adonis and Monix is just heating up.
The Rivalry Between Jordynne Grace & Tessa Blanchard Can’t Be ContainedSpeaking of intense rivalries, Tessa Blanchard and Jordynne Grace seem to be on another collision course. The two women were in separate matches on the card but still managed to find one another in the ring. First, Grace defended her Progress Wrestling women’s title against fan-favorite Kylie Rae. Grace retained her title in an entertaining affair, showcasing her heralded strength numerous times throughout the match.
Later in the evening, Blanchard faced off against Britt Baker in a singles match. Baker came close to picking up the win a few times, but Blanchard’s physicality was simply too much for the mayor of Brittsburgh. After the match, Blanchad offered her hand to show respect to her opponent. As Britt accepted the offer, Blanchard began a vicious post-match beatdown. Grace came rushing out from the backstage area and immediately began brawling with Blanchard. Grace and Blanchard faced off with one another at Warrior Wrestling 2 but the match ended in a no contest as both women’s aggression caused the match to spiral out of control.
As Grace and Blanchard began to throw haymakers at one another, Warrior Wrestling officials rushed to the ring to pull the two women apart from one another. Warrior Wrestling promoter Steve Tortorello came to ringside and was clearly unhappy with Grace and Blanchard’s causing the show to come to a standstill. Tortorello announced that if the two fierce competitors couldn’t keep their hands off one another, suspensions would be involved. Almost immediately, Blanchard decked Grace with the Impact Wrestling title belt. Blanchard left the scene but not before shoving Tortorello out of her way before proclaiming, “Tessa B ain’t nothing to mess with!”
Frank The Clown Shows Up To Rile the Chicagoland Crowd Before Assisting Robert “Ego” Anthony Pick Up the Win in the Freelance Free For AllThe Freelance Free For All was put together to feature some of the best local talent in the area. Which is exactly why fans nearly booed Frank The Clown out of the building as he walked his way towards the ring. Never one to be short on words, Frank further agitated the crowd with a barrage of verbal barbs that had everyone ready to run him backstage. Frank introduced Robert “Ego” Anthony as his guy to win the match which wound up to be a spoiler, not a prediction. Still, it didn’t’ come without some controversy. As the referee was distracted, Anthony hit Brian Pillman Jr. in the face with his cane and picked up the victory. The match saw numerous stars from local Freelance Wrestling promotion including Space Monkey, Isaias Velasquez, Matt Knicks, Wardlow, Bryce Benjamin, Gringo Loco and others.
The Lucha Brothers vs. Team White Wolf Leaves Fans in AweIn the evening’s co-main event, two exciting teams showed what tag team wrestling is all about as The Lucha Brothers (Fenix and Pentagon Jr.) faced off against Team White Wolf (A-Kid & Carlos Romo). The two teams put on an amazing show that had Warrior Wrestling fans on their feet throughout the match. Pentagon Jr. and Fenix continued to prove why they’re among the most popular wrestlers in the world with “Animo” and “Cero Miedo” chants routinely breaking out during the contest. Unphased by facing two of the best in the business, A-Kid and Romo performed nearly to perfection. Team White Wolf impressed The Lucha Brothers so much that Pentagon Jr. and Fenix invited the team back to the ring to show respect and raise their opponent’s hands in admiration. Although they did not pick up the W, A-Kid and Carlos Romo validated the hype of being one of the most exciting tag teams wrestling.
Brian Cage Retains the Warrior Wrestling Title in a Thrilling Match Against BandidoWith the rest of the card producing numerous dramatic moments throughout the night, it put Brian Cage and Bandido in a tough spot. Following thriller of a tag team match, Cage and Bandido didn’t have the luxury of a “cool down spot” before stepping into the ring. Still, that didn’t stop the two competitors from putting on a great main event match. Some highlights of the contest featured Cage performing two monkey flips that sent Bandido nearly out of the ring and Bandido catching the massive Cage flying off the turnbuckle, turning it into a powerslam. In the end, Cage was able to retain his Warrior Wrestling belt with a Drillclaw after a pop-up powerbomb to a buckle bomb sequence.
Following the match, Cage grabbed a microphone and told the Warrior Wrestling fans that Warrior Wrestling is quickly becoming one of his favorite places to wrestle for and that the champ isn’t going anywhere. Who is next for the champ? Can anyone stop The Machine?
Bonus: Eddie Edwards Brings the Violence to Warrior WrestlingEddie Edwards has competed for Warrior Wrestling once before against Brian Cage. But that was a standard match and an entirely new Eddie Edwards. Scheduled to wrestle against Austin Aries at Warrior Wrestling 3, Aries would attempt to play mind games with Edwards before the bout started. Aries ran down his opponent, believing himself to be above competing in a No Disqualification match. Edwards responded and said he didn’t come looking for a wrestling match with the former Impact Wrestling champion, he was looking for a fight. Almost immediately the two began brawling in and outside of the ring. The two even went into the stands and at one point, Edwards was stalking Aries like a crazed animal as the two traversed the crowd back to the ring. Edwards made sure his new weapon of choice, a kendo stick, felt the taste of Aries’ skin. He used the kendo stick numerous times including to the face of Aries. Still, Aries showed he could succeed in the world of violence against Edwards and came close to getting Edwards to tap out after a beautiful sunset powerbomb to The Last Chancery. However, it would be Edwards who picked up the win after locking in Aries’ own finishing submission hold with the aid of a kendo stick.
