Wrestling from the Underground

The first rule of Southern Underground Pro is… don’t call them SUP GRAPS.

Southern Underground Pro is a new wrestling promotion in Nashville. They’re not out to replace anyone else running in the area; they want to fill a void for fans and wrestlers. In a city with a proud wrestling tradition, their goal is to bring the very best in today’s independent wrestling to the Music City.

Southern Underground’s first show features a loaded card stacked with twelve hungry young wrestlers from all across the country: Curt Stallion, Kevin Ku, Nick Iggy, Kerry Awful, Dominic Garrini, Alex Daniels, Dr. Dan, Frankie Flynn, Chris Crunk Jaden Newman, AJ Gray and Brett Ison. All twelve men will be in singles action to start the show with the winners facing off in two triple threat matches. The winners in those two matches will go on to fight for the honor of becoming the first Bonestorm Champion!

The tournament format will give each individual wrestler a chance to shine on their own, and as the tournament progresses, the opportunity for some unique match ups will unfold. Imagine seeing Nick Iggy going one on one with his Carnies tag team partner Kerry Awful.

If successful, S.U.P. plans to run bi-monthly shows and feature even more of today’s stop independent stars. Fans can expect to see women’s matches and tag matches at upcoming shows, and S.U.P. is looking for a more family-friendly venue for future events.

Southern Underground Pro’s Battle for Bonestorm will take place on Sunday night, April 23 at The Cobra, 2511 Gallatin Ave in Nashville. For ticket and event information, go to the S.U.P. event page on Facebook.

 

Best of 2016 with Righteous Jesse

The Kick Out at Two Podcast released their final episode of the year today, an interview with Tier 1 Champion Darius Carter! If you haven’t already subscribed, you can find Kick Out at Two on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher.

Righteous Jesse was also happy to chime in with his favorite match of 2016, Brett Ison vs. Lee Byford:

This match is a favorite of mine for a few reasons- 1. It’s no secret that Brett Ison is my best friend. Getting to see my best friend wrestle in another state for another promotion and get a positive response from the crowd was such a great feeling. 2. It’s Brett Ison vs Lee Byford. If you aren’t familiar with these two they’ve been rivals and partners. I knew this would be a knock down, drag out fight. I was 200% right. These two men gave it everything they had and captured the crowds attention. The match took place at Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment at Famous Pub. I highly recommend this match to anyone who might doubt that strong style has a place in the south.
