Der's e'rl in dem der hills!




Ham Wrangler

April 8-10 is GCW's The Collective weekend, the only thing going on in the wrestling universe that weekend. This year they decided to go to the Tampa Area and camp out at The Cuban Club in Ybor City to put on 12 shows over the course of three days and can be seen on Fite TV. All event details are gratuitously stolen from here and they also have the Fite TV screens embedded for easy access (all times EDT). Many doors will be broken, but I am not going to count them this time because I value my sanity.

Edit: Card subject to change dramatically.

Der's e'rl in dem der hills!




Ham Wrangler

Matches I am looking forward to (severely cut down since it was getting to being almost half the matches):


Jordan Oliver vs. Everett Connors
Everett Connors put on an amazing match with Joey Janela at Fight Forever and Jordan Oliver has put together a lot of great stuff with GCW in the past year, so this should be a great match.

Jordan Oliver vs. Edith Surreal
Edith Surreal (fka Still Life with Apricots and Pears) has also put together a lot of great matches during the pandemic and she will probably have a pretty good showing with Jordan Oliver.

Dragon Bane vs. KTB
Laredo Kid vs. Brayden Lee
Arez vs. Aramis
Lucha Libre has hit The Collective. Laredo Kid and Arez were the two best workers in Mexico in 2020 by far and that has continued into 2021. Arez is the master of "strange style" which is exactly as it sounds and Aramis is a regular opponent for him, so this match could end up the match of the mid-afternoon.

Josh Barnett vs. Jon Moxley
No comment needed.

Lio Rush vs. Lee Moriarty
Just keep putting Lio Rush in matches with high profile guys in the indies, he always overperforms. He took on ACH last year at Spring Break in an amazing match, so this should be great

Rickey Shane Page (c) vs. Nick Gage
Nick Gage is returning from injury and wants to bring back the GCW championship to the good guys. Rickey Shane Page's title run has included him refusing to give matches unless he got something in return and so far it's been Blake Christian's indie career and Spring Break. This will be a bloody mess.

Lio Rush vs. Jordan Oliver
I believe this it The Blackheart Lio Rush and was instigated by leaving a VHS tape in Jordan's bags at Take Kare.

Joey Janela vs. Chris Dickinson
There is massive beef here, with Chris Dickinson running in during Joey Janela's match with RSP and causing him to lose Spring Break.

Gringo Loco, Black Taurus and Arez vs. Laredo Kid, Dragon Bane and Aramis
5 great luchadores and Gringo Loco.

Brunch vs. Bitch Match: EFFY vs. Gregory Iron
Gregory Iron is a professional wrestler with cerebral palsy and the driver for 44.OH and will likely lose this match, but it's 44.OH so we never know.

The Clusterfuck [CANCELED]
Something has to fill the hour and 50 bookings that The Clusterfuck usually takes.

Brian Cage vs. Chris Dickinson
Cage can finish off the work of Joey Janela and Shane Mercer hopefully.

Soul On A Pole Match: EFFY vs. Ace Perry
EFFY has possession of Ace Perry's soul. Ace Perry wants it back. I have no idea what the physical manifestation of a soul is or how you tether it to a pole, but this will be great.

Parrow’s Twink Hunter Tag Gauntlet: The End (Odinson and Parrow) vs. ???
Tag Team Gauntlet with two men that like throwing people to their death.

MV Young vs. JD Drake
Will JD Drake join the polyam crime cult?

Pick Your Partner Tag Match: Jimmy Lloyd and Gory vs. G-Raver and Brandon Kirk
G-Raver and Jimmy Lloyd had an amazing barbed wire rope match at Take Kare and this looks like the chance for G-Raver to get his revenge.

Su Yung vs. G-Raver
I hope G-Raver's wounds have healed from his match 8 hours earlier.

Nothing seemed too out of the ordinary, just a lariat and a kick, then Gino went down. They need to stop listening to wrestlers on if they are good to wrestle. Look at this.

https://twitter.com/IsThisWrestling/status/1380194002952192004?s=20

Hijo del Canis Lupus was dealing with dead weight and had to let him go. Then Gino wanted to shoot fight him and could barely stand.

Edit:

Best ring attire in the business.

Yeah, not having a loving canopy or something to offer shade is a real odd choice. Running outdoors in the Florida afternoon sun is just a strange choice.

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

Hot. Levi Everett, Gino Medina, and JJ Garrett got injured/dehydrated and Arez was pretty close in the middle of his match. Anyone wrestling multiple matches looked pretty wasted.

Tomorrow's Acid Cup will probably end with someone going to the hospital if there isn't any cloud cover.
