The biggest weekend in IWC history continued this past Saturday
in Meadville as we presented Night of the Superstars 6! A crowd
of over 1,600 fans gathered to see their favorite IWC Superstars
as well as some Superstars and Legends from the past!
The Wrestling world was buzzing when it was announced that The
Hardy Boyz would be coming to IWC at Night of the Superstars.
The Wrestling world was buzzing even more when the brothers
showed up at Wrestlemania 33 and became WWE Raw Tag Team
Champions! It would be a huge moment the IWC fans anticipated
seeing: The WWE Raw Tag Team Champions in an IWC Ring! The fans
certainly weren’t disappointed as they were given a moment even
bigger: The WWE Raw Tag Team Champions and the IWC Tag Team
the ring at the same time!
The Fraternity interrupted the entrance of The Hardy Boyz and
came to the ring badmouthing the brothers for not being able to
wrestle them due to contractual obligations to WWE. Decker and
Gibson claimed that Matt and Jeff got cold feet and in reality
were just afraid the face them. The Hardy’s assured the
obnoxious frat boys that if they were contractually able to do
so, The Fraternity would surely be DELETED!
The Frat continued to taunt the legendary brothers, but would
end up eating their words however, as it was announced that due
to a stipulation in the contract for their appearance in
Meadville, The Hardy’s could choose any tag team in all of space
and time to challenge Decker and Gibson for the IWC Tag Team
Titles at Night of the Superstars!
Their decision didn’t disappoint. The Hardy’s chose The Headless
Horsemen, Gory and Matt Conard, to challenge for the gold and
not only that… this match would be a TLC Match! Tables, chairs,
garbage cans, and ladders are just a few of the weapons these
four men dished out to leave
as the IWC Tag Team Champions! For nearly a year, Decker and
Gibson have reigned atop the tag team division in IWC and on
this night, they surely saw their titles slipping away!
The Fraternity finally won the grueling TLC Match after slamming
Gory through a table from the top of a ladder, in the process
possibly cementing their legacy as the greatest tag team in IWC
history! The night wasn’t a total loss for Gory and Conard,
however. The Horsemen came up short, but were given a show of
respect from The Hardy Boyz after the match and that might be
even more important than the victory!
of the Superstars is often referred to as the biggest night of
the year on the IWC calendar and it’s because of the moments the
show creates. One of those moments happened again this weekend
as John McChesney defeated Chris LeRusso for the IWC Super Indy
LeRusso had been sliding his way through title matches ever
since winning the championship last October. Thanks to always
having manager BC Steele and the 300 pound Bulk Nasty at
ringside for his defenses, there hasn’t been any challenger able
to successfully beat those odds. Nobody had been able to
dethrone “The Heir Apparent” until IWC legend John McChesney
stood up to the brash and arrogant champion, challenging him to
a title match at Proving Ground back in February for
following month. Unfortunately, even a legend like “Big League”
couldn’t overcome the constant 3-on-1 disadvantage, coming up
short in his title opportunity at Sixteen in March.
In Meadville it would be different however. To the disgust of
LeRusso, WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat was
announced as the special guest referee for the Super Indy
Championship rematch between the two at Night of the Superstars!
Though LeRusso is certainly becoming one of the top Independent
Wrestlers around, McChesney is a legend for a reason and he
that in a 1-on-1 scenario he could take down LeRusso and end his
reign! To the joy of the IWC fans in attendance, that’s exactly
what he did!
The worst weekend of their careers continued in Meadville as
Team Storm lost a 3-on-2 handicap match to former WWE Superstar
Ryback and New Number One Contender Andrew Palace. Ryback had
come to the aid of Palace the previous night at High Stakes in
Wheeling, WV after Jaxon Argos and RC Dupree joined Jack Pollock
in beating down Palace after
Number One Contender’s Match. A level of retribution for Palace,
hopefully after this win he can now look forward to his
opportunity at the IWC World Heavyweight Championship!
Britt Baker continued her reign as the first IWC Women’s
Champion as she defeated second generation star Rachael
Ellering. Perhaps Britt’s toughest challenger to date, Rachael
came close to winning the title on
than one occasion, but “The Mayor of Brittsburgh” was able to
overcome the flurry of offense from Ellering and retain the
championship by making her latest challenger tap out!
Wardlow continued his dominance as IWC World Heavyweight
Champion at Night of the Superstars, this time successfully
defending his title against former two-time NWA Junior
Heavyweight Champion Rocky Reynolds. Wardlow has taken out men
of all shapes and sizes during his impressive title run, and
next up on the list of challengers in new Number One Contender
Andrew Palace. How will the 2016 IWC Superstar of the
match up to “The Man with War in his Name?!”
In other action, an entertaining battle for microphone supremacy
saw Mr. Anderson defeat RJ City and in a huge Eight Man Tag Team
Match the team of Chest Flexor, Lumberjack Leroux, Remy Lavey
and Keith Haught picked up a victory over Marshall “The Bull”
Gambino, Jami Jamison and The Mega Plowers!
Next up on the IWC calendar is Clearfield Carnage 2 on April
29th in Clearfield, PA. Keep checking back here at
