Are you ready Des Moines? After the last fantastic 3XWrestling event they are preparing once again to blow your minds! On February 4th at the Des Moines Social Club 3XW will present “Reign of Terror II”. Don’t be scared though as it is sure to be a night of action, excitement and plenty of surprises that you won’t see anywhere else!
Set for that night is a match for the 3XW Heavyweight title. The champion, Brian Ash, will defend the belt against “3XW’s Ironman” Mark Sterling. Both wrestlers had a great year in 2010 and they are already showing how dominate they are going to be in 2011. Brian Ash not only recaptured the 3XW Heavyweight belt but he turned on the 3XW fans and his former students. He cheated to win with the now defunct “Gentlemen’s Club” for most of last year but now he has the even more powerful “Genesis” at his beckoning call.
Last year at this time Mark Sterling was one of the most hated men to ever step into a 3XW ring. Now the cheers his receives are almost deafening! Sterling no longer needs the help on anybody especially from his former cohorts how are now members of “Genesis”. At last months show he put on one of the best matches this writer has ever seen, along with “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt, and is now 3XWrestling’s living Ironman. He also can claim the title of “King of Des Moines 2010” for his superior showing in that one night tournament.
Sterling has held many 3XWrestling title belts before but he has not yet been able to win the almighty Heavyweight gold. This could be that match but Brian Ash will not just lay down without having a trick or two up his sleeve. He will no doubt be led to the ring by his toady manager “Commissioner” Todd Countryman so the loaded briefcase will already be at ringside. But there is also his army of minions ready for battle and this “Genesis” isn’t above interfering in any manner to retain that belt for Ash. Mark Sterling is intense, ferocious and a great wrestler but his is only one man against many.
There will also be an action packed six man tag team match! “The Canadian Sex Icon” Ryan Slade and “The High Flyers” will be taking on the former 3XW Tag Team champions “Delicious” Devin Carter and Casanova along with the never was been Steve Biley of “Genesis”. “The High Flyers” made up of “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson and Mike Sydal are back again after a brief hiatus for some unfinished business with Carter and Casanova. Ryan Slade, surprisingly, has been getting more cheers as of late and is now at odds with “Genesis” also. It will be interesting to see how the “Flyers” and Slade mesh as they too have previously been on opposite sides of the ring.
Casanova and Carter lost the belts to “The Horndogs” after a lengthy run at last months show “Divide and Conquer”. Without a title rematch Carter and Casanova will probably be more then a little frustrated when it comes time for the bell! And let’s not forget their partner that pitiful accuse for a referee and local triple bacon cheeseburger eating champ, Steve Biley. This defector turned on Rory Fox and the faithful 3XW fans as he literally gave Ash the Heavyweight title. Any match that features members of “Genesis” means you don’t face just one or two of them you deal with the whole gang!
More matches are scheduled for “Reign of Terror II”! “The Laotian Sensation” Ricky Kwong will defend the 3XW Pure Wrestling belt against “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell. If Kwong get disqualified in the match the belt will change hands! Also the new 3XW Tag Team champs “The Horndogs” will take on the “Genesis” team of Sly and Smooth for their first title defense. Also the team of Sir Bradley Charles and “The American Fury” Jon West will take on “American Ground & Air from “Genesis”. More pro wrestlers are on the card as more matches will be announced.
