Notes from Under the Ring 2...


  • Congratulations to One Percent for winning the DEFY tag team titles against the Amerikan Gunz. These guys just get better and better and keep adding Tag Titles. That's three on the coast now for Royce Isaacs and Jorel Nelson as they also own the FSW and Best of the West Titles.
  • All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has not hesitated to mine the west for talent. This is great news for the wrestlers getting signed and the new stars ready to step into their place. These visits to Bar Wrestling and DEFY could be recruiting trips as much as promotional appearances. 
  • I'm very excited about Shogun Jones and Chris Bey tomorrow night at FSW No Escape. This is a battle of two of the top stars in the entire company and both are barely in their twenties. It's a dangerous title defense for the Champion, but the Sam's Town Live crowd will likely be firmly behind The Ultimate Finesser.
  • Lot's of big names being rumored for MECCA IV here in Las Vegas, but several have already confirmed like Teddy Hart, John Morrison, Taya Valkyrie and the Rascalz. 
  • Sefa Fatu will be the Nevada State Champion tomorrow night. He is absolutely ready for a Title run and will own the place when he comes down the ramp. WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi will be at the meet and greet and you can guarantee the entire family will too. They showed up en mas to the Rumble and I hope they sit right by me again. Too big a problem for Graves.
  • Different ideas have been discussed for the No Limits cage, but nothing has been confirmed. What will the six be up against in their attempt to win the Title?
  • Super stoked to be going to Los Angeles for Wrestle Summit. I've been wanting to go the Ultratorium in Wilmington and PCW ULTRA will be a great host. Big names have been announced already, and I can't wait. Check it out https://lastwordonprowrestling.com/2019/01/23/wrestle-summit-announces-first-10-names-from-cross-promotion-supercard/
  • Shane Strickland being booked at Wrestle Summitt makes me wonder just how close he really is to going to NXT as he's been rumored. Of course Swerve could come off the card, but let's hope that doesn't happen.
  • With Sanjay Dutt heading to the WWE I'm curious to see what IMPACT does with the tryouts scheduled in Las Vegas February 15th.
