Redemption promised the IZW World a ton of action. It promised a crazy five-way Impact Scramble, a battle between the tag team champions, and one man standing tall holding the IZW Championship. It delivered bigger than anyone could have expected and in ways that no one could have imagined!

The night started with a huge contest between former partners as Big Business Damon Windsor would face his former partner and the man he stabbed in the back at the Impact Chamber, The Image of Fear Kevin Morgan. Morgan wanted nothing more than to get his hands on Windsor but Big Business wanted to bury the hatchet and remain friends. Morgan quickly let him know that would not be an option. He slapped away the offered handshake and leveled Windsor with a big clothesline. Windsor battled back, targeting the left arm of Morgan which had been less than 100% for weeks. But even only one good arm Morgan is more dangerous than most men with two. The Image of Fear continued to show remarkable resolve as Windsor never lost focus on his point of attack. Morgan seemed to be all out of steam as Windsor delivered his patented elbows on the corner, he sauntered to the center of the ring and removed his elbow pad, looking to deliver the knockout blow to his former partner but it was not to be. Morgan sprinted out and speared Windsor, hoisted him up and drove him down with the Oklahoma Stampede and then sealed his fate with the Moment of Fear.

Morgan told the IZW World that he wouldn’t stop until he got to Johnny Z and that Windsor would only be a speed bump on that journey. After this match it would be hard for anyone to disagree with the man who now holds both IZW Tag Team Championships.

The controversy with the Tag Team Championships was finally over but it was just beginning with the Impact Division Championship. It was announced that Angel Camacho had suffered an injury and would not be able to make the Impact Scramble. So Co-Commissioner Mark Wilson made the call that the winner of the Bobby Starr/Jordan Jacobs match would be inserted into the scramble and get a shot at the Impact Division Championship.

Both Starr and Jacobs seemed especially driven with an Impact Division Championship opportunity on the line. Starr was more aggressive and violent than we had ever seen him before. But Jacobs has been better than ever as of late. Since his series of matches with Johnny Z and almost being IZW Champion, Jacobs has been really hitting his stride. Jordan battled back from a big spinebuster and fought out of the single leg Olympus Crab. Starr continued to blast Jacobs with vicious shots and ran full speed at him in the corner but Jacobs caught him with a buckle buster, scaled the ropes and used the Light Switch to turn Starr’s lights out. Starr was left to lick his wounds while Jacobs went on to ready himself for his shot to once again become Impact Division Champion.

From one Bull to another we would next see The Bronze Bull taking on The Attorney Jeff Wolfenbarger. Wolfenbarger would be accompanied to the ring by former IZW superstar and commissioner Kool-Aid. Wolfenbarger tried to have a nice birthday celebration for Kool-Aid earlier but it was cut short by The Bronze Bull who verbally ran down both men. Bull thinks that he is far and away superior to both men but a fast and furious flurry of offense from Wolfenbarger sent Bull scrambling to the outside. Wolfenbarger didn’t let up and cornered Bull and ran in with a pair of splashes but Bull stopped the second one and threw him over his head with a deadly belly-to-belly suplex. Not one to let an advantage go, Bull threw Wolfenbarger outside and started laying on the punishment. Jeff had another trick up or two up his sleeve though. He dropped Bull neck first on the rope and hit a springboard leg drop. Jeff went for the Final Impact but Bull reversed with a northern lights suplex that swayed things back his way. Bull picked up Wolfenbarger and drilled him with Greetings from Mt Olympus. But Bull refused to make the cover, he wanted to rub it in. He picked Wolfenbarger up again and spit at Kool-Aid. Kool-Aid jumped on the apron and returned the favor, blinding Bull and allowing Wolfenbarger to slip into a sunset flip and get the win over the Bronze Bull. Wolfenbarger swore to be the thorn in the side of Johnny Z and Impact Inc and has certainly been just that by beating the crown jewel of Johnny Z’s followers.

Next up was the 5-Man Impact Scramble for the Impact Division Championship. Sheepy O’Brien, O’Malley and Randy Price would challenge for Drake Gallows’ Impact Division Championship as scheduled but via his win over Bobby Starr earlier, Jordan Jacobs would be inserted into the madness of the Scramble. This match was a masterpiece in chaos. From the very start all five men went full steam at each other and while alliances may have existed at the beginning, it quickly became every man for his self. O’Malley looked to take out four birds with one stone as he fought all four of his competitors into one corner, ran across the ring and delivered an Irish Car Bomb to everyone involved. This would grant him a pin on O’Brien to become the interim Impact Division Champion. His opponents eventually subdued O’Malley and Gallows was ablt to score with an emo-killer on O’Brien onto two chairs to get a pinfall of his own. As O’Malley and O’Brien brawled on the outside, Jacobs dove from the top rope with a flipping senton onto both men. Not to be outdone, Price climbed up and as all three men reached their feet, he dove off with a corkscrew moonsault. The four men were in a heap on the outside but that left one man unaccounted for, the Urban Legend himself Drake Gallows. Gallows earned his nickname from the death defying things he has done to rule the Impact Division. The IZW World let out a collective gasp as they saw him start to climb a giant ladder that took him all the way to the roof of the Impact Arena. He shrugged his shoulders and dove off. But the dice rolled snake-eyes for Gallows and as he dove the ladder shifted underneath him and he fell short, narrowly missing the ring apron but crashing to the floor below. Randy Price looked to capitalize on the chaos but was caught with O’Brien’s Trouble and O’Brien became the current champion. The two Irishmen O’Malley and O’Brien brawled on the outside while Price tried to hit the splash from the past on Jacobs with the seconds ticking away. Jacobs got out of the way and hit the Light Switch and covered Price. Referee George Knight’s hand hit the mat for the 3 with less than a second left in the match.

Two Irishmen consumed each other in violence, the man who laughs at danger rolled the dice and lost and the man who wasn’t even originally in the match utilized every last second of the match to once again proudly hold the Impact Division Championship.

After the match Price was dejected and coming down to share his thoughts was his former mentor the returning Coach Gary Tool. The IZW World expected Tool to take Price’s head off after Price cost him the IZW Championship. But instead Tool said the blame for what happened to him lied on the IZW World. He laid into the fans in the Impact Arena and said that he was proud of Price and his actions and that he reminded Tool of what Old School really was. What does this mean for the future of Randy Price and/or The possibly reunited Old School Suckas?

Next up was an old fashioned Street Fight between Shawn McHale and Mark Wilson. The two Co-Commissioners started with some classic wrestling and it evolved into an old fashioned brawl. McHale tried to keep it clean but that wasn’t in Wilson’s playbook at all. Wilson targeted the leg of McHale, punishing it with chop blocks and kicks. Wilson looked to put McHale away with a perfectly executed figure four leglock but McHale fought his way out. When that didn’t work Wilson went into his bag of dirty tricks. He pulled out a handful of powder to blind McHale but the #1 knocked it right back into Wilson’s face. When Wilson regained his vision he was staring right at McHale who flipped him the double #1 and hit a Stunner to get the win. The #1 proved to the IZW World that he was exactly that as he put the Butterscotch Stallion out to pasture.

There was only one score left to be settled. The IZW Championship would be on the line as man who was screwed out of the IZW Championship at the Impact Chamber Jermaine Johnson would look to dethrone the Natural Born Leader. Few people in IZW know each other as well as Johnson and Z. They have fought alongside each other and against each other time after time. While Johnson is perhaps the most decorated competitor in IZW the feat he has never accomplished in his amazing career is a one-on-one pinfall victory over Johnny Z. Johnson came in extremely confident and certainly gained control quickly but Z is a master of the mind games would not be shaken by the early advantage and turned things into his favor. Neither man kept a strong advantage for the majority of this modern classic. The two men know each other so well that every move and offensive strategy was met with a counter attack. When frustration got the best of him, Z decided the best defense was to kick Johnson in the lower region not once but twice. The two men battled to the outside where Johnson took over and bashed Z all around the Impact Arena. As he tried to return Z to ringside, Z backdropped him onto the concrete around the ring area. Enraged by the beating he had been on the end of, Z drilled Johnson with a series of punches and vicious chops. Z got even more malicious and tried to piledrive Johnson on the outside but Johnson reversed. Johnson fired up and tossed Z inside where he connected with his kicks in the corner and lifted Z up in the Power & Strength suplex but Z landed on his feet and hit the Final Impact that almost retained his championship. The two men traded an Energy Shot and a Float-Over DDT but each only got a two count. Johnson closed in on the IZW Championship when he hit Power & Strength from the top rope and mounted the 2nd rope for the ES2 but Z caught him with a boot to the face before he could connect. Z perhaps saw this as his last chance, he measured Johnson and went for the Big Bott in the Corner but Johnson caught him and dropped him with a powerbomb. The Hype Section came to a fever pitch as Johnson again mounted the ropes to set up for the ES2 and thatâ??s when all hell broke loose. Sensing their leader was in imminent danger, Impact Inc dashed into the ring and pounded Johnson. Even though they were banned from ringside the rules of a No Holds Barred match prevented a disqualification. In a moment of Deja-vu Damon Windsor Chokeslammed Johnson and presented him like a sacrifice to Z. But before he could take advantage Shawn McHale hit the ramp followed by Kevin Morgan, Jeff Wolfenbarger, and Jordan Jacobs. They cleared the ring of Impact Inc and left the two men in the match to fight it out. But the damage had been done, Jermaine Johnson struggled to even get to his feet and Z revved up the Big Boot when he stopped in his tracks at the appearance of Double D! D stood at the top of the ramp, brandishing a steel chair and Z stood in the ring as his jaw quivered and the color left his face. Z knew his day of reckoning for his misdeeds against D had come. D hit the ring and Z bailed out. Z continued to try to get a grasp on the situation and Double D readied the chair and blasted Jermaine Johnson! The IZW World was in shock. Z climbed into the ring and in the most shocking and disturbing images ever in IZW Johnny Z lovingly embraced Double D. Z celebrated yet another of his former enemies becoming a follower and then CRACK!!! Double D drilled Z with a chair to the skull too! D stared coldly at both men then retrieved the IZW Championship from ringside. He then simply walked out of the IZW Arena leaving fans with more questions than answers. We got what we were promised, one man stood tall with the IZW Championship but it was neither of the men in the match. It was Double D, the man who never lost the IZW Championship to begin with. A silent but definitive statement made by Double D as he has seemingly reclaimed ownership of the IZW title he never lost.

IZW Sudden Impact Review

Words can barely do justice to this night of epic action and drama. Tables, ladders and bodies were broken. New champions were crowned. And expectations were shattered in a main event the IZW World will never forget.

Sudden Impact wasted no time in jumping into the action as the first match of the night was the 20 Minute Impact Scramble match for Randy Price’s Impact Division Championship. Price would put his title on the line against 3 other men in the form of Drake Gallows, Angel Camacho and one-half of the KC Wolves, Luke Langley.  As expected, the match immediately erupted into chaos with all four men going at it. Camacho and Price each got dumped to the outside which left Langley and Gallows to each vault over the top rope to the floor onto their opponents. All four battled on the outside, throwing each other into the ring apron, guardrails and even the ringside retaining wall. Langley and Gallows fought inside the ring and each man made their way to the top rope ending up in a power struggle which neither man won as Camacho crotched Langley on the top rope and Randy Price shoved Gallows off the top rope and sent him crashing into a table at ringside. As Price and Camacho quickly threw their “alliance” out the window and attempted to pin one another, Langley made his way back in the ring and capitalized on a prone Camacho to score the first pinfall. Langley couldn’t rest just yet though as, per the rules of the scramble, he had to make sure no one else scored a victory in the remaining time to become champion. Knowing this, Price quickly ejected Langley from the ring and went up top and connected on Camacho with the Splash from the Past. Referee George Knight could only get to the count of two before Gallows came crashing down with his Bangarang Moonsault. But as he went for the pin he was drilled with a Mushroom Stomp from Langley. Langley’s instincts kicked in as he went for another pinfall on Camacho but he was already the interim champion. Price seized the opportunity and hurled Langley from the ring and scored a pin on the beaten down Camacho as well to make him the interim title holder but Price had a long way to go as he still had the better part of ten minutes to go before the conclusion of the match. As the action continued, Gallows fought back to his feet and leveled Price and struck Camacho with an eerie looking tied-off burlap sack. The contents of the bag wouldn’t stay a mystery mush longer though, as he would then untie the back and litter the ring with thousands of metal thumbtacks! Camacho immediately did his best to stop Gallows from utilizing the tacks and took him up to the top rope where Camacho looked to deliver a superplex. Luke Langley had other ideas and kicked Camacho off the ropes and he fell directly into the tacks. The tacks pierced not only the back of Camacho but several got stuck directly into the back of his head. Camacho would repay the favor though as Gallows and Price to superplex Langley into the tacks, Camacho powerbombed all 3 competitors in to the shiny mass of skin-piercing metal below. A series of pinfalls between all the worn-out competitors would leave Camacho as the current Impact Division Champion with just five minutes remaining. The final five minutes would see Price and Gallows each become the interim champion and then work together to put Camacho through a table. Gallows got rid of Price and Countered an attack by Langley and hit him with the Emo-Killer. In the exhaustion and chaos of the match Gallows, who was already interim champion, went for another pin on Langley but with mere seconds left Price drilled Gallows in the head with the Impact Division Championship belt and as the clock ticked down he scored a pin on Gallows just before the 20 minute time expired. This was the most intense and impressive Impact Division Championship defense of Randy Price’s career and maybe in the history of IZW.

Next up we had the heated personal rivalry between The Brothers Righteous and CopyCat & Damon Windsor. This all started when Windsor and IZW ring announcer AnnaLynn Storm started to get a little too friendly for her father, Striker’s liking. Since then, Striker and O’Malley have been on a tirade, saying that people like Windsor & CopyCat are what is wrong with the world today. These two teams had a lot to prove going into this match as they were fighting not only for a win but also for their beliefs. Each of the Brothers Righteous were quite certain of which member of their opposition they would face as O’Malley wanted nothing to do with CopyCat and Striker slipped away and tagged out at the first chance of Windsor getting into the match. Windsor instead would fend off an attack from O’Malley and deliver his patented back elbow/ forearm combination before tagging out to CopyCat. Again, though, O’Malley was able to escape and tagged out, not wanting CopyCat to be able to exact his revenge from the beating he received. Copy was able to get on offense with Striker quickly but was caught with a kick from the outside from O’Malley which allowed Striker to take control. The Brothers Righteous would take turns isolating and dissecting CopyCat, always being sure to keep him far away from his partner. They even went as far as to knock Windsor off the apron when Copy got close to tagging to prevent Windsor from re-entering the match. But even after repeated punishment, they couldn’t keep “The Forgotten Champion” down. As O’Malley shot Copy into the turnbuckle, Copy blasted out with a burst of adrenaline and knocked the behemoth off his feet and finally made the tag. Windsor unloaded with right hands on both Brothers Righteous and hit Striker with the Big Time Slam. CopyCat made it to his feet and hit O’Malley with the Doppelganger sending him out of the ring to the floor. Striker snuck in a shot below the belt on Windsor while the ref was distracted and pulled out the infamous brass knuckles. He went to take Copy’s head off but Copy ducked and hit a Doppelganger on him as well which sent the knucks flying and Striker stumbling into a Chokeslam from Windsor who pinned Striker for the win. Afterward Windsor picked up the knucks and looked like he was going to nail Striker with them but he saw a better way to get back at Striker and planted a big kiss on the lips of Anna Lynn Storm.

The night continued with a very special Sudden Impact edition of the Lights Out Lounge.  Jordan barely got a word out before his opponent for the night Graham Bell came through the curtain and started laying into him and just like that the finals of the 2014 Impact Player of the Year Tournament were underway. Jacobs did his best to retreat to ringside but Bell gave chase and beat Jacobs all around the ring. Jordan tried to introduce a ladder but it was used against him, however he was able to avoid an attack from Bell and drive him from the ring apron onto the ladder on the outside back first. Jacobs brought a much larger ladder into the ring and set it up in the corner, Jacobs attempted to deliver a facebuster on Bell into the ladder but Bell fought out and drove a knee into Jacobs’ back driving him face first into the ladder. The two fought around to the other side of the ring where Jacobs was able to place the ladder between the ropes and ascend the top rope and in a bit of a spiteful move delivered a double stomp onto Bell while he was laying on the ladder. The stomp not only did physical damage but Jacobs was sending a message using one of the signature maneuvers of Bell’s partner Luke Langley. Both men tried to reach the Impact Player of the Year trophy but were unsuccessful. Jacobs put Bell to the outside and tried to scurry up the ladder but as he was within reach of the trophy Bell leapt from the top rope and dropkicked the ladder out from underneath him, sending Jacobs to the unforgiving canvas below. They battled to the outside of the ring once again where Bell was able to position himself underneath Jacobs and powerbomb into the ring which he followed up with a huge diving swanton bomb from the top rope. That move got him into the finals and it looked as if he would use it to win the whole tournament but in a last gasp of energy Jacobs caught up with Bell as he reached the top of the ladder. Both men struggled to be the first to unhook  the trophy and in the struggle the ladder started to tip and both men were left stranded, dangling from the steel cable that held the trophy high above the ring. The two men fought high in the air before Jacobs’ arms gave out and fell, leaving Graham Bell to retrieve the trophy and become the 2014 Impact Player of the Year. Bell now has the opportunity to chose a shot at any title he wants in IZW. It will surely interesting to see if he goes after a singles title or if he chooses to pursue the tag team titles that have eluded the KC Wolves for so long now.

Speaking of the IZW Tag Team Championships, the next match would see IZW Tag Team Champions Team Bull taking on not only Vinnie and Roberto Camacho but also, thanks to Madame Commissioner Erica, their cousin Angel would also be in this match, making it a 3-on-2 handicap tag team match. Angel was unsuccessful in his attempt at becoming Impact Division Champion earlier in the night and looked determined to make sure the Sexy Camachos didn’t leave without at least some gold. Angel would start out with the Bronze Bull in this championship contest. Bronze Bull went behind Angel and raked his fingernails down the back of Camacho, clawing at the tender holes still left from when Camacho went into the pile of tacks earlier in the night. Angel quickly scrambled to the corner and tagged in “Freshly Hot & Heavy” Roberto Camacho. Bronze Bull took control and backed Roberto into Team Bull’s corner. Bull reared back to deliver a knife-edge chop but instead grabbed tightly a death lock on the Roberto’s nipples! Bronze Bull and Bobby Starr then spent the next few minutes taking turns giving Roberto what the IZW World in attendance referred to as a “Purple Nurple”.  Finally Team Bull threw Roberto across the ring and he would tag out to the youngest Camacho in Vinnie. Vinnie didn’t appreciate Team Bull’s treatment of his “familia” and the smallest Camacho got right into the face of the Bronze Bull but he got some of the same as Bull snatched him by the nipples as well and sent him back where he came from. Tired of the disrespect shown to them,  Angel came in and took control on Bobby Starr. He quickly isolated Starr and, in making quick tags to the other Camachos, gave his team the advantage that the handicap situation allows. Bobby fought back and ducked a clothesline from Roberto but got caught with a big belly to belly suplex that snuffed the Brass Bull’s momentum. Starr connected with a flying headbutt that took Roberto off his feet and gave Starr the chance to get over to his corner but as he did Vinnie Camacho, utilizing the numbers advantage, jumped down and pulled Bronze Bull from the apron, ensuring that Starr couldn’t make the tag. With the ref distracted with Vinnie and Bronze Bull on the outside, Angel and Roberto seized the opportunity and each slammed into Starr, crushing him between their massive bodies. Roberto made the cover and three seconds later IZW had new tag team champions! Despite the numbers advantage, this was a still a shock and has to be considered a massive upset. Who knows what the future holds for the tag team division now that all three Sexy Camachos have the tag team titles.

The #1 Shawn McHale took the ring next with a bombshell announcement! After Sudden Impact IZW will be “taking the show on the road” and doing live road shows in addition to the IZW Adrenaline tapings going bi-weekly. So as you’re reading this review be sure to check IZWrestling.com for announcements because IZW may just be coming to a city near you! He also announced that while IZW’s iPPV’s will be reduced to four (Sudden Impact, Redemption, Chaotic Christmas and Coronation) on July 26th we would STILL be seeing the return of The Impact Chamber, the 5-on-5 elimination-style steel cage match that has set the standard for IZW action for years. On top of all that, McHale had one more announcement, that the captain of his team in the Impact Chamber would be none other than the Captain of the Force, IZW Champion Double D.

But before leading team #1 into the Impact Chamber Double D would have to face off against “The Image of Fear” Kevin Morgan. Morgan has been on a rampage since Double D defeated Johnny Z for the IZW Championship and blamed Double D for “The Natural Born Leader” subsequently disappearing. Morgan believes in his heart that if he can unseat Double D as IZW Champion, then Johnny Z will return and all will be right with Impact Elite once again. To say that Morgan has been hanging by a thread is a major understatement.

Morgan’s attack in this match was apparent from the start. To punish the already-injured ribs of Double D. He drove D’s body down across his knee, taking D’s ability to breathe away from him. D rallied back from the initial attack and sent Morgan over the top rope to the floor and connected with a big kick to the head but when he went to dive onto Morgan he was caught and driven back and ribs first into the steel ring post. Morgan once again pin-pointed the ribs of the champion as he continued to punish D. D fought back and escaped Morgan’s onslaught but upon entering the ring, Morgan again took aim at the ribs, stretching Double D out and partially removing the therapeutic tape from D’s injured ribs.  But if there’s one thing that is always true of D, it is that he never gives up and this time was no different. D threw some well-placed kicks to get Morgan off his attack plan and then hit a head scissors and a swinging knee to Morgan’s face which stunned The Image of Fear. Double D saw his opportunity and leapt off the top rope with a flying crossbody but Morgan landed a big right hand right into D’s ribs on the way down. Everything D tried, Morgan seemed ready for, he continued to counter every rallied chance at offense D got. Time and again he showed his immense power, driving D down and further damaging D’s ribs. But regardless of the punishment D would not stay down. Morgan threw D 10 feet in the air and caught him for a powerslam but D shifted his weight and hit the De-Facer out of nowhere but Morgan kicked out within a hair of being pinned. Double D knew he had to go for something big if he was going to disorient Morgan long enough to connect with his Crossbody. D hit the ropes and swung around for the Tilt-a-Whirl DDT but Morgan blocked it and drove D down with a powerslam. Morgan could smell blood in the water and stood poised to deliver the Moment of Fear to finish off the champion and fulfill his goal of winning back the favor of the Natural Born Leader. As Morgan readied himself, familiar music rang out in the Impact Arena but this time it wasn’t Johnny Z’s music… it was the unmistakable music of The Convict! The “King of the Yard” was last seen at Coronation when he laid out both Double D and Johnny Z, effectively costing Z the IZW Championship. As Convict stood in the ring, motionless, Morgan quickly realized that Convict was not there as an ally and he laid into the man from the D.O.C. but Convict was unphased and snatched Morgan up and dropped him with a 15-to-20. It seemed as if Convict had once again come to ruin Impact Elite’s night. Until Double D made it to his feet and Convict gave him a 15-to-20 too! If that weren’t confusing enough, if that weren’t shocking enough, what would happen next may have been the most unexpected turn of events in IZW history. As Convict stood over the two fallen men, the video screen lit up with the black and green image of Johnny Z. And unlike the past two months, this would NOT be a hoax. The Impact Arena erupted at the sight of the Natural Born Leader. The IZW World knew they were in for the fight of a lifetime as Johnny Z had come back to get revenge on Convict for costing him the IZW Championship. But they couldn’t have been more wrong. After staring face to face with Convict, Z turned his gaze to Morgan. Morgan bowed at Z’s feet and Z motioned to Convict to help Morgan to his feet. As Morgan regained his footing, he could barely believe his eyes. His savior had returned. Z clutched Morgan’s head, looked at his most loyal follower and said “I’m back”.  Then Z kicked Morgan directly between the legs! Convict then hit another 15-to-20 on Morgan and Z turned his attention to Double D. Z brutally started beating D before drilling D and Morgan in the face with The IZW Championship Belt. Z refused to stop there, he grabbed a steel chair and repeatedly and mercilessly brutalized both already decimated men.  Z then grabbed the microphone and delivered some strange and cryptic words to Madame Commissioner Erica and said he was just getting started with Double D. Then he stood over the near-lifeless body of Kevin Morgan, looked down upon him and said “but as for you…You’re fired.”

The very first Sudden Impact brought us the most inexplicable turn of events in IZW history. Everyone went in with one question of “Where’s John?”. We may have found out the answer to that question but the end of the night left us with many, MANY, more questions than answers.

IZW Coronation Review

“IZW Coronation: A Decade of Impact” was a night like no other.  It was the biggest show of all-time for the Lawton, Oklahoma based organization and took the promotion to new heights.  New champions where crowned while others held on to their titles by the slimmest of margins.  It’s a new day in IZW and the IZW World.

In a hell of an opener, Team Bull (Bronze Bull & Brass Bull) defeated What Wrestling Should Be (Jermaine Johnson & Jordan Jacobs) in a TLC Match to capture the IZW Tag Titles.  It was a hellacious bout that saw both teams put their bodies on the line over and over again as all four men pushed the boundaries of what a human body could endure.  In the end, Team Bull was too strong and made a final push to the title using unmatched teamwork.  With all four men laying on the mat after absorbing table crashes, high falls from ladders and chair shots, Jacobs was the first man to his feet and started to ascend up a 12 foot ladder.  Team Bull rose to their feet and shoulder blocked the ladder out of the ring where Jacobs fell face first on a stack of tables as he crashed to the ground in an unsettling turn of events.  Jacobs was done for the night!  Team Bull raced up another ladder looking to grab the belts but Johnson was step by step with them as he managed to get his hand on the belt first before taking a super Greetings From Mt Olympus from both Bulls from the top of the ladder!  As Johnson descended down to the mat a broken and defeated man, Team Bull remained on the ladder and each grabbed the belts to become the new champions in a terrific match.  After the match, Jermaine Johnson grabbed the mic and let everyone know that he quit!  It was a stunning turn of events for one of the most heralded wrestlers in IZW history.

IZW Co-owner Jeff Wolfenbarger defeated Mark Wilson in a Falls Count Anywhere Match as both men came to scrap and scrap they did.  Both Wolfenbarger and Wilson will never be the most physically imposing men in the squared circle but you wouldn’t have known that from the way they went after each other from the get-go.  Wilson was bloody and battered after taking multiple chair shots from Wolfenbarger who showed a violent side he has never displayed before.  Wilson was able to turn the tide as gave Wolfenbarger a back body drop on the wooden ramp injuring Wolfenbarger’s spine.  They continued to make their way up to the top of the stage where Wolfenbarger took a chair shot to the head full force but managed to get a shoulder up at two.  Wolfenbarger then hit a modified reverse facebuster cradle slam as he planted Wilson face first on the stage and got the victory in a brutal and unforgiving battle from these two never say die men.

Up next, in a Triple Threat Crown on a Pole Match for the Queen’s Crown, Paige Turner scored the biggest win of her young career as she defeated former Champion Miss Diss Lexia and Angel Blue to become the new Queen of IZW.  Blue exhibited some great high flying in the match, while MDL showed off her fabulous suplexes and throws.  Blue and MDL where going back and forth against each another in one corner as they battled to grab the crown but then the music of Impact Elite hit and Madam Commissioner Erica strolled onto the stage.  Both MDL and Blue paused for a split second and Turner took advantage as she threw both women off the top rope and snatched the crown.  Turner and Erica celebrated after the match, which only seemed to pour salt in the wounds of MDL and Blue.   The win by Turner turns the women’s division on its head and offers several new matchups throughout the division.

In a match that brought the pain to the highest degree, IZW Impact Division Champion Drake Gallows successfully defended his title against Angel Camacho in a Dog Collar Chain Match.  Camacho was particularly vicious with the chain in the early going as he beat Gallows across the back with ruthless aggression and dragged him all over the ring.  Camacho added trash can head shots into the mix as Gallows was taking a beating.  Camacho followed up with a splash but still couldn’t get the pinfall.  Camacho decided to up the ante by dropping thousands of tacks on the canvas.  Camacho and Gallows traded punches in the center of the ring until Gallows connected with a right cross that sent Camacho down and onto the pin cushion of tacks!  Dozens of thumb tacks riddled the back of Camacho.  Camacho rose back to his feet and after trading more steel fisted punches, Camacho unloaded with a belly to belly suplex that sent Gallows into the silvery barbs on the floor!  Gallows managed to get back to his feet and after each man enduring just a bit more pain, Gallows was able to hit a moonsault from the top rope and get the pinfall amid a ring that was littered with thumbtacks, garbage cans and two broken bodies.

In tag team action, The KC Wolves (Graham Bell & Luke Langley) defeated The Sexy Camachos (Roberto Camacho & Vinnie Camacho) in a fast paced tag team bout.  Roberto hit a belly to belly suplex on Bell in the early going and Vinnie added a nice shoulder lock submission attempt to the mix that further damaged Bell.  Bell responded with a flying dive out of the ring onto both Roberto and Vinnie that took the momentum away from the Camachos.  When action resumed, Roberto connected with a belly to belly suplex on Langley.  Langley responded with two enziguri kicks, a code breaker by Bell and a flying stomp to the back by Langley.  Langley hooked a leg and got the pinfall in an exciting back and forth battle.

Michael Barry, Tommy Revell and Angel Williams became the first three inductees into the IZW Hall of Impact.  Barry, Revell and Williams make up the inaugural class and laid the foundation over the past decade and helped IZW turn into the global phenomenon that it is today.  Barry was unable to make the festivities, but Revell and Williams both gave stirring speeches that were well received in the Impact Arena.  The IZW World owes a debt of gratitude to Barry, Revell and Williams for their work inside the IZW ring.

In the main event, for the IZW Title in an Impact Chamber Match, 10 of IZW’s finest grapplers took part in one of the best matches of all time for the promotion as after a year, Johnny Z was finally dethroned and the man to get the job done was none other than Double D!  Johnny Z and Double D started off the match against one another and D gained the upper hand until Striker joined the fray and put the boots to D.  Striker and Z then teed off on Double D until D countered with a double DDT.  D’s luck would run out soon as Kevin Morgan was the next entrant.  As Z and Striker recovered, Morgan bruised and battered Double D with punches and kicks.  Morgan added a rear chin lock into the mix as D continued to fight uphill against the odds.  Copycat was entrant #5 and took some of the heat off of D as now Morgan, Z and Striker had another victim in their sights.  As Morgan and Striker took on the fresh Copycat, Z and D were one on one again with Double D hitting a bulldog.  Copycat also responded by going toe to toe with Morgan and Striker as it was quickly turning into a brawl at every corner.  Damon Windsor joined the match next and locked up Striker as Z and Copycat battled in an opposite corner.  Double D landed nine knees to Morgan but was lifted up and power bombed in the center of the ring.  Soto Miyagi was scheduled to be the next competitor into the match, but was shown backstage knocked out.  In his place, the returning Brandon Bishop took center stage!  Bishop made a grand entrance by taking out Morgan and Copycat with a summersault flip from the top rope then hit a big takedown on Johnny Z and starting clubbing Z with right hands followed by a back breaker.  Randy Price entered the fray at #8.  Price went straight at Double D while the other wrestlers regrouped and continued to peel off in separate battles.  Price thumped D down with multiple slam variations and then turned his attack towards Morgan and Windsor where he got a double chop from those two titans.  Z picked up on Price’s handiwork and hit a second rope bulldog on Double D only adding to D’s misery.  Brad Michaels became the newest competitor in the ring and he and Price squared off adding more punishment to their already bloody history.  Price sling shot Michaels into the steel cage and cut Michaels wide open across the forehead.  O’Malley became the final wrestler to join the Impact Chamber and he started dishing out beatings on whoever was close.  It finally came down to six men who were still left standing:  Johnny Z, O’Malley and Price on one side and Bishop, Double D and Brad Michaels on the other.  O’Malley and Price were eliminated next, leaving Johnny Z all alone.  Bishop was eliminated next by a superkick from Michaels.  Z kicked out of a superkick from Michaels and Michaels was beside himself and took a high crossbody from Double D in return.  D pinned Michaels and then it was down to the final two.  The same two who started the match.  Hearts where pounding everywhere in the Impact Arena and as Double D connected with a high cross body off the cage, but even that was not enough to pin Z’s shoulders against the mat.  Then in a moment nobody saw coming, The Convict made his IZW return!  Convict gave Double D a 15 to 20 and that looked to be all she wrote.  But then out of nowhere, The Convict hit Johnny Z with the same exact move!  In the aftermath, D scaled the Impact Chamber one more time and connected with another high crossbody as he sailed across the Impact Arena and down onto Johnny Z.  This time, the impact of the move was enough to get the 1-2-3 and Double D regained the IZW Title from his oldest rival in a match for the ages!

“Coronation:  A Decade of Impact” has finally arrived.  It is not only the biggest iPPV of the year for IZW, but the biggest event of all time for the Lawton, Oklahoma based organization.   On March 15, this year’s “Coronation” celebrates ten years of wrestling excellence for the #1 Independent promotion in the country.  Every IZW title is at stake and with so much riding on the line, you can’t afford to miss this event if you are a wrestling fan.  Order now!

In the main event, IZW Champion Johnny Z puts his title on the line in an Impact Chamber Match against nine other men.  Double D, Kevin Morgan, Copycat, Damon Windsor, Striker, O’Malley, Randy Price, Brad Michaels and Soto Miyagi.  This will be Z’s toughest test to date in his one-year title reign as Z will be the #1 entrant into the Chamber.  Z’s arch nemesis Double D is set for #2.  After that, wrestlers will trickle in until the Impact Chamber is full of 10 of the top wrestlers on the Independent scene.  This match is unpredictable and every wrestler is a real threat to win the title.  Expect the unexpected as you can never predict what will happen when these men go to war.

Also scheduled, IZW Tag Team Champions What Wrestling Should Be (Jermaine Johnson & Jordan Jacobs) take on Team Bull (Bronze Bull & Brass Bull) in a TLC Match.  If WWSB is victorious, TB has to disband as a team forever.  All four of these men have been to hell and back with one another in their tenure with IZW and this bout promises to up the ante once again.  On paper, this match looks to be an early candidate for MOTY.  Don’t blink as you are likely to see something you have never witness in a wrestling ring before.

In a match that is sure to bring the pain, IZW Impact Division Champion Drake Gallows takes on Angel Camacho in a Dog Collar Chain Match.  Camacho and Gallows have been on a collision course since they stepped foot in IZW.  This bout promises to add another notch to their ongoing feud.  Both men are unpredictable in the ring and adding a dog collar chain into the mix is going to only add to the level of violence that these men have a flair for.  Who is tougher, Gallows or Camacho?  On March 15 the world is going to find out.

IZW Queen Miss Diss Lexia defends her title in a Triple Threat Crown on a Pole Match against IZW rookie Paige Turner and Angel Blue.  A Pole Match adds a new element to these three women’s ongoing feud.  MDL is a free spirit and her creativity in the ring will have room to work with the added device.  This will be the biggest match in Turner’s young career and the only question is will she rise to the occasion or wilt under the pressure?  Blue is the wildcard as she is always innovating something new and you can bet she will pull out all the stops in her quest to become the new Queen of IZW.  On the biggest stage of the year, which woman will rise to the top and claim her destiny?

IZW Co-owner Jeff Wolfenbarger battles Mark Wilson in a Falls Count Anywhere Match.  Both men have the heart of a lion and the fight of a pit bull.  There’s no telling what is going to happen as these men battle throughout the Impact Arena.  Fans are sure to get an up close and personal experience with this match.  Both men have a hatred for one another that you rarely come across in today’s world.  On March 15, they are going to settle their differences by any means necessary.

“IZW Adrenaline” returns this Saturday March 1and with “Coronation:  A Decade of Impact” less than three weeks away, all bets are off.  IZW Champion “The Natural Born Leader & Savior of Wrestling” Johnny Z (@NBL_JohnnyZ) made an impact at the expense of his greatest rival Double D (@IZWDoubleD) last week when Z crushed an already wounded D in the face with a Big Boot in the corner.  What awaits the wrestlers that step into the squared circle this week?

Johnny Z picked apart Double D like a vulture after D was in a hellacious main event match with “The Old School Sucka” Randy Price (@RandyPrice_OSS) in which Price pile drove D full force down on the canvas.  Z will be the first entrant into the Impact Chamber on March 1 and D is number 2.  Z has always been able to slant the odds in his favor and that reality continues with his most recent actions against D.  Z is stacking the odds once again as the biggest match of his career comes closer and closer.  What will Z have in store this week?  Right now, the biggest threat to Z’s IZW Title reign looks to be Price who dispatched of Michaels in the parking lot last week and took out Double D in the center of the ring during the main event.

“The Image of Fear” Kevin Morgan (@TheImageofFear) is at his fiercest ever as he brutalized Soto Miyagi last week and looks to be the most ardent disciple of Johnny Z.  Will Morgan try to pulverize yet another member of the Impact Chamber Match and increase Z’s odds that much more?  If Morgan is in the house you can bet pain and destruction are not far behind.

Team Bull [The Bronze Bull (@BronzeBull_AN) & “The Brass Bull” Bobby Starr (@thegods_bs)] and What Wrestling Should Be [“Lights Out” Jordan Jacobs (@JacobsLightsOut) & “Larger Than Life” Jermaine Johnson (@JermaineAboutME)] continued their blood feud as last week Team Bull retaliated for the beating they received two weeks ago by WWSB where TB was destroyed with steel chairs. TB shattered WWSB into pieces as they used two iron ladders to bend, fold and break Johnson and Jacobs nearly in half!  WWSB and TB are headed for a dangerous collision course, a TLC Match at “Coronation”, but if things continue at this rate, neither team will make it to March 15.

Look for more stars to be out at the Impact Arena as IZW Impact Division Champion “The Urban Legend” Drake Gallows (@DG_urbanlegend) now has three Camachos to watch out for as “Big, Bad & Sexy” Angel Camacho (@A_Camacho0986) and Roberto Camacho now have recruited yet another cousin, Vinny Camacho.  The Camachos are looking for a fight and if no one steps forward to accept their challenge they are just going to start one with whoever is closest.

“Bad” Brad Michaels (@OldSchool_Brad), “Big Business” Damon Windsor (@DamonWindsor) and “Worst in the World” Copycat (@CopycatWrestler) are chomping at the bit to get back in the ring.  Look for these three men to come out of the gates on fire as they are looking to push back against Johnny Z, Impact Elite, Randy Price and more!

IZW Adrenaline February 22 Review

The February 22 episode of “IZW Adrenaline” added yet another layer of intrigue to the impending   “Coronation: A Decade of Impact” on March 15.  The drama was raised by several top notch matches as every wrestler that competed in the Impact Arena brought their A-game.

The action was fast and furious from the get-go as The Bronze Bull (@BronzeBull_AN) locked horns with Roberto Camacho right out of the gates.  Bull and Camacho traded headlocks with Bull being the more technical, but Camacho was all too happy to cut corners and hit a couple cheap shots followed by getting Bull in an arm in choke before Bull powered out.  A spinebuster by Bull made Camacho scream like a teenage girl.  Bull followed up with a Greetings From Mt. Olympus displaying his god-like strength.  Camacho was down and as the ref counted the pinfall, IZW Tag Team Champion “Larger Than Life” Jermaine Johnson (@JermaineAboutME) rushed to the ring to attack Bull.  The ref called for the bell as the match ended in disqualification, as Johnson pounded away on Bull.  “Lights Out” Jordan Jacobs (@JacobsLightsOut) added to the melee by bringing a ladder into the ring and just as WWSB was about to destroy Bull with two ladders, “The Brass Bull” Bobby Starr (@thegods_bs) made the save and together he and Bull turned the tables and destroyed both Jacobs and Johnson with multiple ladder shots.  When it was over, WWSB was writhing around in pain as the ladders where turned into twisted pieces of metal.

After the chaos between WWSB and TB and when all the debris was swept up out of the ring, Madam Co-Commissioner Erica (Lady_Of_Impact) and IZW Champion “The Natural Born Leader & Savior of Wrestling” Johnny Z (@NBL_JohnnyZ) squared off in the ring with “The Captain of the Force” Double D (@IZWDoubleD).  Z and D got into a huge standoff and then “The Image of Fear” Kevin Morgan (@TheImageofFear) turned the odds in Z’s favor by storming down to the ring and engaging in a 2 on 1 beat down of Double D.  Soto Miyagi, with chair in hand, rushed to the ring to aide D and chased Impact Elite away.  Erica made a match on the spot for Morgan versus Miyagi in a battle of David and Goliath proportions.

Morgan hammered away at Miyagi with crushing punches and looked for a gut wrench suplex but Miyagi escaped and connected with a series of leg kicks that chopped Morgan down a notch before dislodging Miyagi’s teeth fillings with a clothesline.  Miyagi and Morgan traded karate chops and open handed chops with Morgan getting the better of the exchanges.  Morgan hit a back breaker seconds later but Miyagi followed with a flying knee that put Morgan on his backside.  Morgan only seemed to get more intense, if that is possible, as he rose to his feet and tossed Miyagi across the entire ring like a sack of potatoes.  Morgan tossed Miyagi across the ring for a second time as his penchant for inflicting pain was never higher.  Miyagi had one final ounce of fight left in him and went for his finisher, the Sorana, but didn’t hit the move 100% which enabled Morgan to rise to his feet and give Miyagi the Moment of Fear ending Miyagi’s night.

“The Brass Bull” Bobby Starr returned to the ring for his match against “Big, Bad & Sexy” Angel Camacho (A_Camacho0986).  Starr started quickly by cornering Camacho and unleashing 10 punches with an additional head butt that put Camacho on Easy Street.  Later, Camacho dropped Starr with a standing belly bump and followed up with a spinning side slam for a two count.  Camacho had several near falls after that, which came from a variety of maneuvers including suplexes, leg drops and clotheslines, but Starr was able to get a shoulder up each and every time showing off an undeniable fighting spirit.  Camacho missed with a big splash and Starr followed up with three straight head butts.  Camacho has a hard head too and was able to shake the cobwebs out and connect with his modified crucifix power bomb putting Starr’s shoulders to the mat for a three-count.

Up next, the third and final member of the first ever class of the IZW Hall of Impact was revealed as “The Widowmaker” Angel Williams was announced.  Williams, a former IZW Champion joins, Tommy Revell and “Mr. Saturday Night” Michael Barry in the inaugural class that will be inducted on March 15 at “Coronation” in a special ceremony.

An already hobbled and injured What Wrestling Should Be squared off against the KC Wolves [Luke Langley (@LukeLangleyMD) & Graham Bell (@GrahamBellWPE)] in tag team action.  Jordan Jacobs got the short end of the stick as the KC Wolves tagged in and out keeping a fresh man on Jacobs in the beginning.  Bell connected with kicks while Langley added a suplex into the mix.  The Wolves added a drop toe hold-drop kick combo which only made Jacobs see more stars.  Jacobs was able to tag in Johnson after connecting with a running double knees in the corner to Langley.  Johnson suplexed Langley onto the rope then hit a baseball slide kick to Langley’s head.  WWSB tagged in and out and always kept a man on the attack as Langley was taking barrage after barrage from Jacobs and Johnson.  Both teams showed an excellent ring awareness when they had an opponent hurt as the team work from both groups was top notch.  Finally, Langley was able to free himself from the clutches of WWSB long enough to tag in a fresh Bell who was chomping at the bit.  Bell dropped both members of WWSB with an assortment of kicks and knees.  Jacobs fell out of the ring and Bell added a double knees to the chest of Johnson followed by a top rope stomp from Langley to pick up the 1-2-3.  It was a huge win for the KC Wolves as it shows they are for real in the IZW Tag Team division by beating the current champs.

After the match, the KC Wolves were attacked by the Camacho cousins (Angel and Roberto) and a third man who turned out to be another Camacho!  Vinny Camacho was revealed to be the newest member of the Camachos.  These three Camachos made immediate enemies with the KC Wolves and after the beat down, Roberto issued an open challenge to anyone in the IZW locker room.  You can expect to see a lot more from the Camachos.  Stay tuned.

In the main event, Double D saw action against “The Old School Sucka” Randy Price (@RandyPrice_OSS).  Double D started off with some nice chain wrestling and got Price belly down on the mat where D was in total control with a side headlock.  Price returned fire when he got to his feet as he took apart D hold by hold and locked on an arm ringer.  D and Price went back and forth with D looking to keep Price on the mat usually with arm drags, while Price wanted to fight back to his feet so he could use his Old School ways.  D responded with a spinning heel kick and two drop kicks as each man upped his game as the match went on.   D added several chops including a Force chop, but Price was determined out of pure spite to not let his shoulders stay on the mat.  Later, Price had D in agony after several well placed knees and a low blow.  D regrouped and hit a springboard knee and springboard tornado DDT in successive moves.  D readied for the high crossbody when Johnny Z’s music hit, distracting D on the top rope.  Price capitalized on the situation by crotching D on the turnbuckle and giving D a piledriver in the center of the ring for the pin!  It was a devastating win by Price who has never looked better since turning over this new leaf. Fans might not like it, but Price is at the top of his game.  After the match, Z came down to the ring to pick at the scraps and hit Double D flush with a Big Boot in the corner.  D took two finishers back to back and as of press time, it is still unknown how his health is.

A Decade of Impact: The Impact Chamber

February 20, 2014 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Press Release, Wrestling News 

by Drew Archer

“Coronation:  A Decade of Impact” on March 15 is highlighted by an Impact Chamber Match with the IZW Title on the line featuring ten of the most talented wrestlers on the Independent scene.  For ten years the IZW Title has been built up through the blood, sweat and tears by each and every man that has ever held that prestigious championship.  The rise of the IZW title has coincided with the ascent of IZW in general.  Brick by brick the IZW Championship has been built up over a decade. March 15 is set up to be the most epic IZW Title Match in the ten year history of IZW as it will be contested in the unforgiving Impact Chamber featuring IZW Champion “The Natural Born Leader” Johnny Z, three former IZW Champions:  “The Captain of the Force” Double D, “The Image of Fear” Kevin Morgan and O’Malley; two perennial contenders: “The Forgotten Champion” Copycat, “Big Business” Damon Windsor, along with multi-time IZW Tag Champions Striker (with Nathan Sensation) and “The Old School Sucka” Randy Price (with Bryan Cruize & Gary Tool) and “Bad” Brad Michaels (with Dexter Hardaway, Seth Allen and O’Malley).  The ultimate underdog Soto Miyagi rounds out the lineup for the blockbuster match.

The IZW Title has been held by some of the most accomplished and menacing wrestlers in the world who traveled up and down the roads of the Independent circuit over the past decade.  Men who have made their mark in the business and cut out their own history  John O’Malley, Aaron Neil, Big Van Vader, Michael Barry, Tommy Revell, Angel Williams, Kevin Morgan, Jermaine Johnson, Double D, The Convict and finally the current Champion Johnny Z.  Ten years.  Eleven men.  Eleven men that will forever be linked in wrestling history.  With ten men scheduled to compete in the Impact Chamber, chances are better than not that after March 15 there could very likely be a new name added to that storied list.

The IZW Title has traveled all across Oklahoma and parts of Texas and since the broadcast partnership with GFL.tv since 2011, the IZW Title has also been won, loss and defended in front of fans across the globe.  The IZW Title has been at stake in all different kinds of matches as well including Tournaments, 2 out of 3 Falls, Steel Cage, Falls Count Anywhere, Loser Leaves IZW, No DQ, Triple Threat, TLC, Title VS Title, Triple Threat TLC and more.  But the Impact Chamber is a whole other ballgame.  It’s different than any other match in professional wrestling.  Ten feet high, more than two tons of raw, cold steel and a perilous and terrifying career ender throughout every square inch of its being.

This Impact Chamber Match is the crown jewel of ten years’ worth of hard work, determination, drive and desire.  I wanted to go straight to the sources to set the tone and get their take on “Coronation”, the Impact Chamber, what it would mean to win (or retain) the belt at “Coronation:  A Decade of Impact” and how this would ultimately affect their legacy.  And make no mistake about it, this is a legacy match.  One that most likely will go down in history as the all-time greatest match in IZW history.

“It is only fair that I’m in the main event at ‘Coronation:  A Decade of Impact’.  I’ve been IZW Champion going on a full year now.  You can’t mention IZW without also mentioning Johnny Z.  I’ve been here since day one.  I am IZW.  I am Oklahoma wrestling.  I am wrestling, period.  ‘Coronation’ will be my greatest triumph as it’s not only a celebration of ten years of IZW, but more importantly a celebration of me and everything I have accomplished and all of the odds I have defied in a decade.  Don’t miss me once again prove my greatness in the ring against nine other wrestlers and show why I am the Savior of Wrestling and ‘The Natural Born Leader’ and STILL the IZW Champion,” Johnny Z said.

“In my opinion, the IZW Championship is the most important championship in this business. Johnny Z has been IZW Champion for basically a full year now. That means he’s the man to beat. He’s got the biggest target on his back. Which also makes him the most dangerous.  The Impact Chamber is the most dangerous match in IZW. Ten men locked in a cage, only one man can be the winner. It’s brutal on the mind, as well as the body. You have to be willing to pay the price, if you even want to stand a chance.  A Decade of Impact, 10-Man Impact Chamber for the IZW Championship. There’s not a doubt in my mind that the Force will fill the arena and be at its strongest that night!  This is a decade in the making. A decade of Impact. Ten men will enter the Impact Chamber with hopes of glory. Willing to fight. Willing to give every ounce of their blood, sweat and tears for the opportunity to lead IZW into the future as IZW Champion. Nine men will leave empty handed. One man will leave with it all,” Double D remarked.

“Winning the IZW Championship at ‘Coronation’ would make anyone’s career. That one win can cement a place in a long and storied IZW history. You aren’t only winning a match, you’re standing on top of a mountain of prestige a decade long. I have been IZW Champion. I know what kind of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice it takes to hold that belt. History speaks for itself. Only the best of the best have held that title. And THE best holds it now. Our Savior, ‘The Natural Born Leader’ Johnny Z. He has asked me to watch his back and ensure he walks out of the Chamber still holding the IZW Championship and that’s what I intend to do,” Morgan promised.

The Impact Chamber is what you make it.  It can be brutal but also beautiful.  A graveyard or a launching pad.  Nobody knows that more than “Big Business” Damon Windsor who has firsthand knowledge of how deadly the Chamber can be.

“The Impact Chamber changes lives and re-shapes careers. That match forces you to bring your game up to the next level. Nobody knows that more than me. At ‘Evolution’ 2013 I was the last man standing for my team. I’ve been in there, outnumbered, with the odds and the best in IZW against me and I came out victorious as the sole survivor. Had the title been on the line that night I would have walked out IZW Champion. Since that night I have been on a relentless journey toward becoming IZW Champion. No one in that Chamber can hold a candle to my fire. At ‘Coronation’, whether they’re friend or foe I will not hesitate to rip the head off of anyone who gets in my way,” Windsor exclaimed.

“’Coronation’ is the term used for the beginning of a reign.  The Brothers Righteous know it is not the beginning but the END OF DAYS!  The Impact Chamber reveals all secrets!  It shows the man you truly are.  It breaks the facade that boastful men use as armor!  Righteousness is our armor.  Righteousness shall cleanse the Chamber!  Righteousness shall make an Impact!  We are RIGHTEOUS!  And WE shall overcome!” O’Malley roared.

O’Malley’s tag team partner, Striker chimed in with his own unique insights.

“The natural instinct of the morally destitute is to run away. Run away from the truth; from themselves. To hide from the consequences of their actions. On March 15th, ‘Coronation’, inside the Impact Chamber there will be no running, no hiding and absolutely no escape from the wrath of the righteous.  To some, winning the IZW Championship would mean standing on top of the mountain, to be the top guy.  To The Brothers Righteous, it will mean the end of days to all of the IZW World. The very world itself will change at that moment.  On September 13, 2008 my partner at the time and myself lost the tag team titles inside the steel cage. That is the last time that I had an IZW title around my waist and also the last time I stepped into the Chamber.  Five and a half years later I step back in the Chamber and this time one of us will walk out with the title.  Johnny Z speaks about being the ‘Savior of Professional Wrestling’.  I have no problem with him but if he stands in our way on March 15th, The Brothers Righteous have no problem crucifying the ‘Savior’ on the Tree of Righteousness,” Striker swore.

“March 15th is a Decade of Impact.  Ten is the relevant number. Ten years of IZW.  Ten men fighting in the Impact Chamber for the IZW Championship.  Who’s going to win?  Copycat! Copycat because I’m ten times better than Johnny Z, Soto Miyagi, Randy Price, Kevin Morgan, Striker, Double D, O`Malley, Brad Michaels, and Damon Windsor! I didn’t come to IZW to be the ‘Forgotten Champion’, I came here to be the Champion!  I go head to head with any man and never budge or back down.  So love me or hate me, via ‘The Forgotten Champion’, via ‘The Worst in the World’, via a “Wild Card’.  On March 15th at IZW’s ‘Coronation’ we hit ten years of IZW, and we begin the Decade of Copycat as the IZW Champion!” Copycat promised.

“This is MY time!  I’m sick and tired of getting passed over.  After all of these years I’m finally taking control of my destiny.  The IZW World hasn’t seen anything yet.  Winning the IZW Title at ‘Coronation’ is going to set everything right.  With me, with IZW, with the world of professional wrestling in general.  I don’t care who gets in my way.  It can by Johnny Z, Double D, that crap flap “Bad” Brad or anybody else.  2014 is the year of Randy Price and no one is going to stop me,” Price added.

“’Coronation’ is so important for so many reasons. Over my career I have seen so many companies come and go. But IZW has been here for ten years and shows no signs of going anywhere. This event is a huge milestone. ‘Coronation’ will also mark the inaugural class of the Hall of Impact. What a special event to induct these three men into the Hall where they will forever be immortalized. Another honor that ensures your immortality in the annals of wrestling history is the IZW Championship. On this very same night, ‘Coronation’, Ten Years of Impact, ten men will enter the Impact Chamber, but only one will walk out as the IZW Champion. I have another shot at gaining that recognition, securing my spot in history and writing the final unfinished chapter in the book of Old School!” Michaels added

“I have proven I can end a match with one move, the Sorana.  All the years of training in Japan and across America have led me here.  To this once in a lifetime opportunity.  I came to IZW for one reason, and that is to be champion.  I’ve left everything I ever had back home in Japan to follow my dream and now that dream is within my grasp.  Now after several years and a lot of hard work I am one win away from reaching my destiny.  Anything is possible in America and I am living proof.  On Saturday, March 15 I will defy the odds and become the new IZW Champion on the greatest stage in IZW history at ‘Coronation: A Decade of Impact!’”, Miyagi exclaimed.

Ten men, with ten very different opinions on how the Impact Chamber Match will play out.  All ten wrestlers will leave the Impact Arena battered, bruised and bloody.  One will also leave as the IZW Champion.  To see the culmination of a Decade Of Impact, order “Coronation” on March 15 on GFL.tv.

IZW Adrenaline February 22 Preview

“IZW Adrenaline” returns this Saturday February 22 to GFL.tv.  Almost everything is locked and loaded for “Coronation:  A Decade of Impact” on March 15 but there are still a few issues to iron out.  Don’t miss one minute of action as gasoline continues to be poured onto the fire that is consuming each and every wrestler in IZW.

Last week, after the main event, What Wrestling Should Be [“Lights Out” Jordan Jacobs (@JacobsLightsOut) & “Larger Than Life” Jermaine Johnson (@JermaineAboutME)] decimated Team Bull [The Bronze Bull (@BronzeBull_AN) & “The Brass Bull” Bobby Starr (@thegods_bs)] with chairs.  WWSB destroyed Bull and Starr and after the fact made a point to gloat over their fallen opponents and let them know that the beating they just received was only a precursor to what they would endure in their TLC Match at “Coronation”.

Before the WWSB beat down, in the main event, “Bad” Brad Michaels (@OldSchool_Brad) made an assist helping “Big Business” Damon Windsor (@DamonWindsor) & “The Captain of the Force” Double D (@IZWDoubleD) score the pinfall over IZW Champion “The Natural Born Leader & Savior of Wrestling” Johnny Z (@NBL_JohnnyZ) & “The Image of Fear” Kevin Morgan (@TheImageofFear) after Windsor finished Z off with a choke slam.  Michaels made sure Z couldn’t cut and run as he tossed Z back in the ring for the waiting Windsor.

Michaels is a wanted man these days as not only do Z and Impact Elite have him in their crosshairs but “The Old School Sucka” Randy Price (@RandyPrice_OSS) has made Michaels Public Enemy #1.  After the walloping Price took last week going down from a Michaels superkick, you have to believe that Price will come back with a vengeance the next time he sees Michaels.

IZW Impact Division Champion “The Urban Legend” Drake Gallows (@DG_urbanlegend) and “Big, Bad & Sexy” Angel Camacho (@A_Camacho0986) have a date with destiny when they will face each other in less than a month in a Dog Collar Chain Match!  Both men know the business side of brutality and odds are good that if they cross paths this week they will get a head start on their match at “Coronation”.

Who will make an Impact this Saturday?  WWSB set the tone for the rest of the locker room last week.  Violent times are ahead for every wrestler who steps foot in the Impact Arena.  For a stable like Impact Elite there is some comfort in numbers, but IE is by no means safe as a growing faction has drawn a line in the sand against them and ultimately will solve their differences in a steel cage, the Impact Chamber on March 15.

Get your shot of adrenaline with “IZW Adrenaline” every Saturday night at 8pm E/7pm C on GFL.tv.  Better yet, if you are near Southwestern Oklahoma, nothing beats watching IZW live from the Impact Arena located at 1009 SW F Ave. in Lawton, Oklahoma 73501.

No other wrestling organization on the Independent landscape carves out as much new content as IZW.  Developed and cultivated in the Sooner State, IZW is second to none.  Be there for every bump, bruise and jaw-dropping moment all of which have made IZW recognized around the world.
