Platinum Championship Wrestling Results from Porterdale on August 20

From John Cole:

Gil Quest defeated David Tita, good opener; Tyson Dean defeated Cameron Jackson in fairly quick fashion; Gunner Miller (with Jeff G. Bailey) defeated Brian Blaze with assistance from Logan Creed; Geter defeated Iceberg; Washington Bullets & Dementia DeRose defeated Danger City Demons (Johnny Danger & Devlin Valek) & Shane Marx. Before the match, Quasi Mandisco challenged The Carpenter to a one on one match for September 3rd and the losers of the 6 person tag would be banned from ringside during it. Jam defeated Bill the Butcher in an excellent main event, Jam bled and it was the perfect underdog story. Overall a very entertaining show.

Peachstate Wrestling Alliance Report from Carrollton on August 20

From Larry Goodman:

Peachstate Wrestling Alliance ran their lone show for the month August last night at the Central Elementary School Gym in Carrollton. 

It was a solid show in the ring with a lot of storyline advancement. I wouldn’t say it was one of Peachstate’s best. They peaks for certain events and this wasn’t one of them. August isn’t exactly prime time for indy shows in Georgia. They gave the crowd sufficient action to satisfy and a bigtime hook for their Labor Day weekend show. 

The PWA Tag Team Championship and the No Limits title both changed hands in well worked matches. Title switches with those belts are fairly frequent occurrences at PWA as they are often used to elevate and/or shine a light on selected members of the roster rather than for long-term story arcs. 

The key stories are intertwined. Jimmy Rave is on a quest to regain the PWA Heritage Champion and has to contend with “Advisor to the Georgia Athletic Commission” Bill Behrens doing everything in his power to keep Rave from reaching his goal. Behrens has also developed a stable of wrestlers called the Kingsmen and has set out to screw the PWA babyfaces in every way possible. AJ Steele has taken up the mantle of leading the opposition to Behrens. 

Attendance was 200. PWA generally draws better at the VFW Fairgrounds. Central Elementary is more economical building to run. Either way, Peachstate has a ridiculously hot crowd and last night was no exception.

Fundraising Campaign for Sabu


From Larry Goodman:

A Go Fund Me campaign is underway to assist Sabu with funds for medical expenses to repair his left hip. Sabu's hip is bone on bone. He was limping noticeably when he was at the Southern Fried Championship Wrestling show last month in Monroe. His Obamacare insurance is not being accepted for the surgery. Over $7000 has been raised toward the goal of $50,000.
