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.

There’s a reason I plug the Kick Out at Two Podcast every Thursday. Simply put, it’s the best pro wrestling podcast you’re not listening to, and by far, the best podcast that covers independent wrestling.
Righteous Jesse, the Wilkman, and Bonnaroo Brittany are die-hard fans who have traveled all night from show to show to cover the indies like no one else. Over the last four months they’ve covered Indiana, Georgia, New York, Missouri, Ohio, and Nebraska, just to name a few. They’ve interviewed a number of main event stars, but they also talk to the curtain jerkers and mid-carders, men and women who are struggling to make a name for themselves in today’s vibrant independent scene.
The more home-grown podcasts I listen to, the more I appreciate Kick Out at Two. The professionalism they bring to their commentary, interviews, and production values makes their show as listenable as any high profile podcast on the Internet. If you’ve never been to an independent show, the Kick Out at Two Podcast will give you the bug to try it out for yourself.
This week’s show features not one but three guests: Space Monkey, Curt Stallion, and soon to be NXT star Tommy End. Subscribe now on iTunes or Soundcloud, and discover all that you’ve been missing beyond TV wrestling.
