Big Valley Wrestling Preview: Fighting Against Graffitti



Big Valley Wrestling (BVW) fresh off their Fundraiser for the Rancho High School Wrestling Team they present Fighting Against Graffitti: A Fundraiser for the LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada. Several top stars are scheduled to appear again as BVW Heavyweight Champion Frank “The Tank" and his opponent for the BVW 5TH Anniversary show November 24th Big Dirty will be there with their match scheduled 8 days later so something might give. Sean Black who fights SGT Major in a Last Man Standing Match at BVW5, and we could get a preview if they find their way into the ring together. Flag Match: Las Vegas Champion Kevin Ducqets vs Tommy Purr – This Non-Title Match is certainly a match about Pride and Belief. The Champion has taken verbal shots at the “Man Diva” and attacked when given the chance. Purr hasn’t backed down though. He went after “The Delinquent" at Tricks, Treats, and Turmoil then demanded this type of match. Tommy Purr will be at home for this one, but rest assured Ducqets doesn’t care. He will bring the fight, and pressure his opponent from the bell. Tommy is tough and he will have nearly full fan support with a chance to make a big statement with a win tomorrow night. Ricky Tenacious & ??? vs Sky High (Mondo Rox & Robbie Lit) – Who will be Ricky Tenacious’s partner. Exceptional will not be there, so there must be an alternative. Frank The Tank would be a great choice and could be the pick. We know Jace and Jody wont be, and Mondo Dinero would be just as big a surprise. Whoever it is will face one of the hottest young Tag Teams on the #lasvegaswrestlingscene Sky High. The brothers have hit a couple bumps in the road, but are certainly on the cusp of becoming BVW Champions. SGT. Major vs Santana Jackson – Santana has shared the ring with some of the biggest names in wrestling this year including Joey Ryan, Disco Inferno, Stephan Bonner, but now he faces maybe the biggest athlete in Pro Wrestling SGT. Major. Jackson will need all of his speed and aerial skills to steal this one, but its hard to see the monster going down. Hes days away from arguably the biggest match in his BVW career and will look to walk through one of Las Vegas' most popular. Can Santana do it? Does he have a Moonwalk DDT with SGT. Major's name on it? Who ya got? The Sour Boys (Shade & Dad Bod Dave) team with Elemento in Six Man against Anerican Oni, Louie 54 and Jay Vidal. Great card for a great cause.

Who Will Bleed First? Greg Romero vs Kyle Hawk



Greg Romero returned to the FSW Arena to chants of “welcome back" but he wasn’t looking to celebrate, he was looking for blood. “The Bridge Burner” had been on the shelf the past several weeks with a broken jaw administered by a knee from Kyle Hawk. The Leader of the Arrow Club connected as Greg attempted a moonsault early in their match Labor Day weekend. The assigned official Cody stopped the contest immediately and we hadn't seen him since. At High Octane this past Saturday Romero challenged Hawk to a First Blood Match November 15th at the Against All Odds Rumble at Sams Town Live. The rules are simple, first to bleed loses. First Blood matches have been part of wrestling for decades. One of the most famous was in 1986 when Tully Blanchard beat “The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes at Starrcade, and legends Ric Flair faced Hollywood Hogan at WCW Unscensored in 1999. The WWE has had 9 recorded First Blood Matches beginning in 1998 when Kane beat Stone Cold Steve Austin at King of the Ring after he said he would set himself on fire if beaten. Our resident WWE Historian and co-host of the pop culture show Morning Woodruff, Travis Woodruff lists his top 3 First Blood matches as the aforementioned Kane-Stone Cold, the 2006 match on RAW between John Cena and Kurt Angle, and the last WWE First Blood encounter in 2008 between Cena and JBL. Woodruff also made it clear “There arent any really good First Blood matches, but these are the best. We wont have that problem November 15th.

This match could steal the show and Romero get his chance at revenge against one of the top heels in Las Vegas and the fans wont have to choose sides for this one. Don’t be fooled by Hawk bringing security to ringside. He's not afraid of Romero and welcomes the opportunity to injure him again. Since their match in August we've seen a more violent side of Hawk who has arrives and just assaulted wrestlers before matches with a more surly attitude than we've seen before. There will be no catch wrestling in this so don’t expect anything resembling a grappling hold and this one may start before they hit the ring. This match is must-see. Who ya got?

BVW Announces Kevin Ducqets vs Santana Jackson


In case you thought Big Valley Wrestling (BVW) doesn’t bring their top stars to the fundraisers think again. Minutes ago BVW Officials confirmed that Las Vegas Champion “The Delinquent" Kevin Ducqets will take on “The King of Pop and Elbow Drop" Santana Jackson at Thursday Night Throwndown inside the ROTC GYM at Rancho High School. The event is to benefit the Rancho Wrestling Team. BELL TIME 6PM. Officials confirmed this is a non-title match. With two big defenses coming up in November it makes sense for him to keep this match without Gold on the line. However, The Delinquent does whatever he wants and is cocky and brash enough to put the belt on the line anyway, so you never know. The Las Vegas Champion is the favorite to win BVW Wrestler of the Year and is taking on all opposition. He has Tommy Purr set for November 16th and on the horizon a November 24th Title defense against Funny Bone at the BVW 5th Anniversary Show.

 The speed and quickness of Jackson could frustrate Ducqets who prefers opponents who will stand toe to toe and trade strikes. Santana doesn’t want a scrap. He will look to create space and use his unique style to take Ducqets out of his game. Both Jackson and Ducqets picked up wins at tricks Treats and Turmoil, but this match is big for SJ. Hes been a regular on the BVW scene most of the summer and any win over Ducqets would be career changing. Whether he fights his best friend, Sefa Fatu, Sean Black, or Funny Bone the Las Vegas Champion stays composed, understands the mental game and is an expert at playing it. What makes Ducqets successful is the Broken Glass Cutter. He can hit the finisher anytime he wants and constantly sets traps to lure his opponents in. If Jackson gets caught up in the crowd and overconfident his face will hit the mat faster than you can say “Billy Jean is not my lover.”  Who ya got?

First Ten Entrants in FSW's Against All Odds Rumble

Future Stars of Wrestling announced the first ten entrants into the 2019 Against All Odds Rumble at Sams Town Live November 15th. There will be no chance for a three-peat since Fsw Champ Chris Bey will meet the winner in the Main Event.


Shogun Jones
Last years 4th place finisher and 2018 Bockwinkel winner is a heavy favorite to win in 2019. He wrestled Bey at No Escape and came very close this summer to beating Hammerstone for the Blue Belt. He has multiple Casino Show wins this year including MECCA V. If not for the "Ultimate Finesser" this couldve been Shogun's breakout year and we're sure Jones would like nothing more than to end Bey's party.


Graves
The 2019 Cash in the Case winner joined forces with Hammerstone at #FSW10 and collected 1/2 of the FSW Tag Titles. It shouldn't surprise anyone if he manages to get the win here since hes a former Nevada State Champion and is coming off submitting Simon Gotch at MECCA V. Very Dangerous.


Shaggy McLovin
It might be easy to dismiss the Skatepark Scumbag in this one, but we're not them. Shaggy is due for a Casino win, and hopes to begin matching the success hes had elsewhere in the #lasvehaswrestlingscene in #FSW. He's a tough kid who brings the fight anytime the bell rings and he'll need to do it again to get through this field.


"Chief" Owen Travers
Regardless of where hes entered the former No Limits Champion is a major threat. He has a high ring IQ and always manages to find his way into the right spots. Yet, 2019 hasnt worked out well for Travers, but a win November 15th would wash away some tough losses.


Suede Thompson
The Wrestler, Producer, Promoter, and Entrepreneur broke his 2019 long FSW losing streak in June when he won the Nick Bockwinkel Battle Royal, and recently went down to Joey Ryan at MECCA V. Despite the spotty results Suede proved at #FSW10 that he can win this type of match and is a multi-time finalist in the Rumble. Will this be his year?


Hero Leu
Even if 2019 isnt the year he wins the Rumble its easy to see the "Hero of Samoa" winning one in the future. Leu has a Casino win under his belt (Tag Match) and is strong and powerful with tons of raw potential. The right allies in the Rumble would go a long way. A deep run this year is possible and it could be the night Hero breaks out.

Matt Vandagriff
The "Flip Artist" has come oh so close to a Casino Show victory this year and a win in the Rumble would get him a rematch with Bey from this past summer. Vanda's aerial game could be limited in this one, but dont count him out yet. Once he gets that big FSW victory it'll be the beginning of many.

Sandra Moone
Anything you read about this young lady is positive. Shes a tough competitor who will put all her opponents on notice. She beat Suede recently and looks to get another shot at the Womens Crown. Although she might meet Chris Bey first.

Sinn Bodhi
We all no the Warlord of Weird can win this. He had a Match of the Year fight with Funny Bone at FSW 10 and would be a tough opponent for the Champ. His unorthodox style frustrates his opponents and don't expect that to change anytime soon.

Leon Hater
The 2019 FSW Hall of Famer looks to add FSW Heavyweight Champion to his resume if he can get over in the Rumble. Hater returned to Sams Town at FSW 10 with Hater Nation and finds himself in a Casino Show again. Will his be the feelgood story of the night that includes a Main Event bout against Bey?

Who ya got? Who else will be entered?

Big Valley Wrestling (BVW) Tag Division Shaken Up...


Exceptional and Tenacious (Alexander Braven & Ricky Tenacious) hadnt been Champions for one minute before all hell broke loose at the #saharaeventcenter Sunday. By now youve heard about the second attack by Jody the Wrestler and Jace Battle on E & T right in the middle of a stunning acapela rendition of "We are the Champions." However, that wasnt the only news to come out of Tricks, Treats, and Turmoil.

The news that dropped moments after the smoke cleared was that former 252 day Champions Fresco-Dinero were no more. Fresco-Mattic is going it alone. Sources told us that Primo Pulpo is still managing Fresco and that is certainly good news for him. Those two have great chemistry and their recent success in BVW should continue.
Lose one set of Tag Champs and maybe gain another? The Sour Boys joined forces with Santana Jackson and picked up a thrilling Six-Man victory. The Boys have won Tag Gold in Vegas before so if on the roster theyre a major threat.

Sky High (Mondo Rox & Robbie Lit) had a brutal loss Sunday and its certainly going to sting, but there is no reason to believe the brothers wont be back with another major aerial assault soon. They are a talented young team and its hard to imagine a future that doesnt include them becoming Tag Team champions by the end of this year or 2020.
