New Champion

- Impact Wrestling's Slammiversary PPV was last night, and the big winners were Ken Anderson and Kurt Angle. Anderson defeated Sting for the Impact World Championship, while Angle made Jeff Jarrett tap out to presumably end their feud (or at least one would hope, since it's dragged on for so goddamn long it's not even funny). Bully Ray defeated AJ Styles in a last man standing match, and Alex Shelley and James Storm retained the Tag Team Championships, again, teasing dissension because EVERY TEAM NEEDS TO TEASE DISSENSION GAWD.

- CZW Prelude to Violence took place at The Arena on Saturday. The show was a prelude to their Tournament of Death to take place in Delaware later on this month. The main event saw Scotty Vortekz defeat Drake Younger in a TLC match to qualify for the tournament. Other winners included AR Fox, who defeated Drew Gulak for the Wired TV Title, Adam Cole, who retained his Light Heavyweight Championship against Jonathan "Hieracon" Gresham and Philly's Most Wanted (BLK JEEZ and Joker), who retained their Tag Titles against Azrael and Bandido.

- Frank Iadevaia of JAPW announced this weekend he was starting a new brand under the company's umbrella. Jersey Shore Championship Wrestling will open for business later this year. You can find the pertinent FAQ here. Basically, JAPW will become a sort of PWG-dream match promotion for the East Coast, while JSCW will feature more of the unknown talent from the area, be it select, lower-card talent from JAPW or other local indie guys. Iadevaia plans on running JSCW as the full-time promotion while JAPW will be the special occasion fed. Also, guest shows with NJPW and Impact will still be promoted under the JAPW banner. This is pretty interesting news. I'll be keeping up with it.

Remember you can contact TH and ask him questions about wrestling, life or anything else. Please refer to this post for contact information. He always takes questions!
