One of So Cal’s top teams The Soul Burners (Ryan Taylor & Tomaste) return to Las Vegas and Future Stars of Wrestling (FSW) on Saturday, June 1st at the FSW Arena against Two-Time FSW Tag Champs The Bonus Boyz (Clutch & Sugar Brown). Ryan Taylor and Tomaste were poised for Tag Team Gold throughout the Wild West when a shoulder injury to Tomaste ended their 2018 campaign. They returned to action with Championship Wrestling from Hollywood this past February against one of the Top Teams from the Mid-Atlantic region The Carnies (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy) and got an impressive victory while also taking down FSW’s Shaggy McLovin (Sketch) and Adriel Noctis more recently. Ryan Taylor is easily one of the five best pure grapplers out west and is a decorated Champion with the Empire Wrestling Federation (EWF) and CWFH. He’s competed with FSW in singles action too, but he seems to have found something special with his Soul Burner partner Tomaste. They connected immediately and saw success from the outset while taking on the Wild West’s top teams like Reno Scum (Adam Thornstowe & Luster the Legend), Agents of Chaos (R3 & Evan Daniels), The Rancheros (Raul & Rogelio), and the Four-Time UWN Tag Champions RockNES Monsters(Yuma & BHK).
The Soul Burners re-enter the FSW Tag Team fray at a good time. Champions One Percent (Royce Isaacs & Jorel Nelson) have virtually cleaned out the division and a win by Taylor and Tomaste against RMB could put them smack dab into a Title shot. They’re a difficult team to prepare for and it could be easy to underestimate them with their Chants and Mantras, but both Burners compete. Tomaste surprises you with his wiry frame and utilizes it to maintain offensive control, while his aerial game is top-notch and rarely takes unnecessary risks. Their double teams are improving and they do a nice job of cutting off the ring which has much to do with Taylor who’s ring control is on another level. It’s critical they don’t give the Boyz any space to operate because these two hit like thunder and it’ll take more than meditation to survive.
Will the Soul Burners be the shot in the arm this tag division needs? One Percent’s domination sent the Bag Boyz (Chris Bey & Suede Thompson) to pair-up in California and Whirlwind Gentleman’s Remy Marcel has returned in Singles. The Reno Scum made an appearance at MECCA and won Gold again in California but it’s uncertain whether they’re returning to Vegas with regularity. Either way, this is a great match that could have major implications within the division.
