This past weekend The Court Time Sports Center in Elizabeth, PA
was the setting as we celebrated the Sixteenth Anniversary of
IWC! Emotions ran high on a night meant to look back positively
on the past, while also looking ahead to the future!
The main event of IWC Sixteen saw the dominant, undefeated IWC
World Heavyweight Champion, Wardlow defend against the former
2-time Champion, DJZ! Justin LaBar’s top client certainly had
the advantage from the get-go, outmatching the challenger by six
inches and nearly one hundred pounds! The experience of the
former champion more than made up for the lack of size, however.
DJZ is the youngest IWC World Heavyweight Champion in history,
and the only IWC Triple Crown Champion!
The challenger used his speed and experience, trying to outlast
the big man, but it was just too much to overcome. After a
battle that left the IWC fans
standing, “The Man with War in his
Name” was finally able to put DJZ away after slamming him from
the top rope to the hard canvas below! LaBar mocked IWC Owner
Justin Plummer at the production table on their way back to the
locker room, rightfully questioning who, if anyone, can take the
Championship from Wardlow.
A great showing for DJZ, he gingerly rose to his feet and
thanked the Court Time fans. Following the match the former
champion was joined in the ring by three of his closest friends,
and three men who helped shape the face of IWC: Facade, Gory and
Deeeeeelicious Jimmy DeMarco! The four IWC mainstays each took
to a corner and posed for the fans, truly taking in the moment!
It was a lasting picture that will play over and over throughout
the course of history in IWC!
For the past number of years, Andrew Palace has been one of the
top Superstars in IWC, if not, the top Superstar. Following an
impressive victory over Matthew Justice at Sixteen, Justin
Plummer rewarded Palace by naming him Number One Contender to
the IWC World Heavyweight Championship! This didn’t sit well
with Jack Pollock. The leader of Team Storm has been undefeated
since coming to IWC in December, including a victory over Suge D
earlier in the evening! Andrew Palace was quick to point out the
interference from Jaxon Argos and RC Dupree that led to
Pollock’s victory over
Suge, and the two almost came to blows!
Justin Plummer interrupted and told Pollock he would have to
wait his turn, but there’s no denying the heart of Andrew
Palace! He instead challenged Pollock to a Number One
Contender’s match on April 7th at IWC High Stakes in Wheeling!
Has Andrew Palace finally gotten his wish? Can he finally beat
Pollock one on one and shut his mouth for good? Or has the
leader of Team Storm actually outsmarted us all? He’s inserted
himself into the IWC World Heavyweight Title picture and if
everything goes Pollock’s way, he’ll essentially take Palace’s
spot… a spot he feels should have been his all along!
IWC Tag Team Champions, The Fraternity, picked up another
successful title defense in perhaps their biggest win to date
over the returning Flippin’ Ain’t Easy, comprised of Facade and
Gory! The returning fan favorites made their entrance from the
top of the balcony at The Court Time Sports Center, repelling
down to the floor below! The IWC mainstays came close on more
than one occasion to dethroning the Champions, but Channing
Decker and Trent Gibson, though loud, obnoxious and annoying,
were able to pick up the win and continue to prove their
dominance in the Tag Team division. During their post-match
celebration, Decker and Gibson sarcastically asked who was next.
Who wanted to step up and prove that Fraternity ISN’T eternity?
It was a question that was answered quickly. The lights at The
Court Time Sports Center went out and moments later, Broken Matt
Hardy appeared on the video screen with his brother, The
Nefarious Brother Nero! The Broken Hardyz reminded everyone of
their Expedition of Gold, their quest to become the greatest Tag
Team Champions in all of space and time. They promised to
teleport to Meadville on April 8th and DELETE the reign of The
Fraternity as the IWC Tag Team Champions at Night of the
Superstars! Will Decker and Gibson pick up the biggest win of
their careers? Or will they fade away and classify themselves as
Chris LeRusso escaped another IWC Super Indy Title defense at
Sixteen, this time at the expense of IWC Legend, “Big League”
John McChesney. The former multi-time World Heavyweight and
Super Indy Champion had LeRusso beat on more than one occasion,
but thanks to manager BC Steele and Bulk Nasty being in the
right place at the right time, the referee was hardly ever in
good enough position to see a pinfall and make a count for the
challenger. McChesney wasn’t able to truly gain the upper hand
and was eventually pinned by LeRusso thanks to the champion
grabbing a handful of tights!
This won’t be how the story ends for these two, however. It was
announced that McChesney will get his rematch at Night of the
Superstars on April 8th in Meadville, and this time Ricky “The
Dragon” Steamboat will be the Special Guest Referee! Will Chris
LeRusso’s reign come to an abrupt end at Night of the
Superstars? Ironically, the same event where he was defeated for
the first time in an IWC ring last year!
The Tag Team scene in IWC continues to heat up as more and more
teams begin to make an impact! The Mega Plowers were able to
defeat Remy LaVey and Keith Haught, The Upper Echelon and Team
Storm in a Fatal 4-Way Tornado Tag Team Match. Team Storm seemed
to be on their way to victory when an unannounced appearance
from The STD’s caused all kinds of confusion and chaos at
ringside. Chest Flexor and Cory Futuristic demanded to be
inserted into the match, Billy Ruxpen whaled his arms around
repeatedly, and Jaxon Argos was used as a human ping pong ball,
thrown over the top rope, and then tossed back in after being
caught by his opponents on the outside! Once the referee was
finally able to restore order, Magnum CK hit a huge Powerbomb on
Argos and scored the pinfall! Following the match, tension
seemed to be brewing between The Mega Plowers and Team Storm.
Will these teams look at the bigger picture and try to vie for
an opportunity at the Tag
Team Titles down the line, or are they
too focused on each other?
Jami Jamison certainly made an impact last month at Proving
Ground, answering the open challenge of IWC World Heavyweight
Champion, Wardlow! “The Country Hammer” continues to take
opportunities as they come, answering yet another open challenge
at Sixteen. This time, Jamison answered the challenge of the
returning J-Rocc, who before the match took to the microphone,
discussing the legacy of IWC and demanding the fans “Give it up
Before Jamison could get in the ring, however, Marshall Gambino
attacked J-Rocc from behind! Any questions we had were quickly
answered as Jamison
joined in the beating… it was a setup!
J-Rocc struggled to fight back until Shane InYaFace made the
save and came to the aid of the returning “Big Daddy of
Destruction.” Justin Plummer did his best tribute to soon-to-be
WWE Hall of Famer, Teddy Long, and made a Tag Team Match between
the four right then and there!
Jamison and Gambino picked up the victory and announced a new
partnership of sorts after the match. Marshall plans on taking
Jamison under his wing, which is bad news for anybody that knows
the history of Marshall “The Bull.” As for the team of Shane and
J-Rocc? A partnership between the two doesn’t seem likely as
J-Rocc attacked Shane following the exit of Gambino and Jamison.
J-Rocc is an accomplished Tag Team wrestler, but these days he
probably feels it’s best for him to “Give it up One Time” alone.
In other action, Dylan Bostic made his return to an IWC ring to
face the always entertaining RJ City. The Court Time fans hadn’t
forgotten Bostic and were quick to remind him how they felt
about The Platinum World Tour. Justin LaBar accompanied Bostic
to ringside, but his interference proved ultimately ineffective
as City was able to deliver his always-popular Knee Arthur
maneuver and pick up the victory!
It’s no secret RJ’s charisma is arguably unmatched and when you
add a microphone, there’s no denying that statement. City
thrives on the opportunity to prove his dominance on the
microphone and he’ll get that chance on April 8th at Night of
the Superstars when he faces someone just as comfortable as
himself on the mic, Mr. Anderson… Anderson.
It’s going to be a busy few weeks for IWC, as next up on the
calendar is The Benefit Brawl on March 25th in Sarver, PA. From
there we look forward to the weekend of April 7th as we invade
Wheeling, WV for High Stakes on Friday night, and on Saturday,
the 8th, we return to Meadville, PA for Night of The Superstars
6 featuring Mr. Anderson, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and The
Hardyz! Keep checking back here at IWCwrestling.com and on our

upcoming events. Tickets are available now!
