ACTION Wrestling 7 (Friday, March 22, 2019 Sandy Creek HS Tyrone, GA)

Kody Wynne Designs
The South Atlanta Wrestling guys are very fired up for this one as it will take place at our high school alma mater, Sandy Creek HS.

Also fired up about this one because it is shaping up to be a great show.

So far the following have been announced...
  • AC Mack (c) v Cam Carter for the ACTION Wrestling Championship - This is a rematch from ACTION Wrestling 6 which not only saw the high-flying and crowd-favorite Cam Carter pin the champion for an extended period of time while referee Daryl Hall was knocked out, but also saw Cam get pinned while his feet were clearly on the ropes.

    Will AC Mack be able to escape again? Will AC and Alice (what he refers to the ACTION Wrestling Championship belt as) be separated? Who goes on to defend the ACTION Wrestling Championship against Fred Yehi at IWTV's Family Reunion?

    There's a lot of questions to be answered, and even more on the line.

Wrestlers You Hated That You Now Love: Carmella

Asked this on Twitter recently...
What wrestler did you dislike until you suddenly LOVED them?

I have a few, but the biggest 180 I have done in recent memory is on Carmella.

Initially, I had zero interest in her. I was never high on Enzo & Cass to begin with in NXT (or the main roster), and her solo stuff when she got called up was UNBEARABLE.

ACTION Wrestling Announced Their IWTV Family Reunion Match!

If you're not aware IndependentWrestling TV (FKA Powerbomb TV) is running a show during Mania week called Family Reunion.

ACTION announced long ago that they would have a match on that card, but until ACTION Wrestling 6 we had no idea what it would be.

We are closer to knowing that now though as the following announcement was made.

The ACTION Wrestling Champion will be defending the title against "The Savageweight" FRED YEHI!

The only question now is, who will enter that event as champion?

Talking Fast Food Part 3 - Checkers, Taco Bell, And Schlotzsky's

It's time for Part 3 of my Talking Fast Food series where I discuss various food places that I frequent. The plan is to always do three at a time each time.

Previous entries are linked on the Talking Fast Food page on this very site. This entry is looking at Checkers, Taco Bell, and Schlotzsky's!

  • Checkers - This is a place that I like a lot more than I actually visit which is a shame. In Newnan, Georgia we recently went from 1 to 2 to 1 to 0 Checkers, but there's still one over there in Fayetteville.

    My biggest gripe with this place is the lack of a dining room. For whatever reason, and I think this probably makes me a little strange, I prefer to sit in the dining room and eat my fast food. Always have. If they had a dining room I'd likely eat there a lot more (back when it was an option to hit one during the work day that is).

  • They have really good Coke, the fries are unique and arguably the best in fast food. The burgers hold up their end of the deal. The best item on their menu might be their banana milkshake though. I've always thought it tasted more like a Banana Laffy Taffy shake, but whatever you call it you can't go wrong with it.

    (Usual order: Either the Cheese Champ or Checkerburger combo with large fries, and large drink. I ask for no may on the burgers).

ACTION Wrestling 6 Results And Review

Right from the jump I'd like to share Larry Goodman's report from Georgia Wrestling History as Larry does tremendous work with these things.

While I do not love doing results and review posts, I feel we've reached the point where it's kind of expected. This came out of a conversation I had with someone who came to this site after a show expecting to find one.

I finally decided that I need to give it a shot again, and see if I can find my groove with these things or not.

As always, feedback appreciated.

  1. Bobby Flaco v Harry Zen - Flaco is a guy that I am really high on, and he seems to be making the absolute most of his time in ACTION Wrestling. He's clearly gaining momentum in this promotion, and he's definitely a crowd-favorite.

    Harry Zen is someone I was very curious to see, and he also delivered. You could not ask for more from an opening match as these two put on a show that got the crowd into it right away, and had us off-and-running for the night.

    Harry Zen's gimmick is pretty unique, and I thought Flaco played off it pretty well.

    (Flaco wins via pinfall)

The XFL Got Bob Stoops

While I am way more interested in and excited about the AAF (in part because we have an ATL team) I have to say this is a pretty good "get" for the XFL. As you can see below he will be the head coach and GM of the XFL's Dallas franchise.

Poster For ACTION Wrestling 7! (Friday, March 22, 2019 Sandy Creek HS In Tyrone, GA)

This dropped Friday, and hopefully you have seen it all over social media by now. If you missed it somehow, here it is!

This is a very special event for South Atlanta Wrestling as it is our high school alma mater. Having a wrestling show like this run there is a really great moment for us (I know I speak for Norko on this one, we've talked about it).

Watch for tickets at ACTION-Wrestling.com!

ACTION Wrestling 6 Is TONIGHT In Tyrone, GA!

It is finally here, ACTION Wrestling 6 is TONIGHT at the Roger Spencer Community Center in Tyrone, GA!

$10 gets you in the door!
Poster: Kody Wynne

  • AC Mack defends the ACTION Wrestling Title against Cam Carter--This is AC's first (and hopefully last) ACTION Wrestling Title defense, and the crowd will be FIRED UP for Cam Carter!

  • Alli Kat v Dani Jordyn--We haven't seen Alli Kat here yet, and I haven't seen her at all live so that will be a treat. I told Dani Jordyn "Tyrone loves you" at a show, and I think that it's completely fair to say that. She's been a big hit since her debut.

  • Slim J v Anthony Henry--Slim J is another guy that the ACTION crowd has rallied behind, and as an Georgia indie wrestling institution that makes a lot of sense. I did not get to see Anthony Henry live at his first ACTION appearance so I'm glad he's back. He's fantastic in singles AND tag action and it's very exciting to have him back in town.

  • The Carnies v Team TAG--A rematch of the Scenic City Trios 2018 final which saw The Carnies win, but Team TAG leave with the trophies...while The Carnies appeared to implode. More here from SAW's Exclusive Announcement of this match.

    Update: ACTION just released the following statement about Tripp Cassidy:

    "We just received word that The Carnies will only have two members tonight, as Tripp Cassidy has refused to take sides in the quarrel between fellow Carnies Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy."

  • James Bandy/Ryan Rembrandt/Stevie Richards v O'Shay Edwards/Alan Angels/David Ali--This looks to be quality six-man tag action as Rembrandt and Bandy have gone out an gotten ECW/WCW/WWE alum Stevie Richards to take on O'Shay and Angels who have David Ali by their side now. Should be a treat.

  • "The Eternal Flame" Harry Zen v Bobby Flaco--As Harry Zen points out you're getting a battle between two well-known wrestling schools Create A Pro (Zen) and WWA4 (Flaco). Flaco is a guy who I think ACTION fans have been impressed by in his previous appearances. I'm not sure how many realize this, but he has ties to the local area as well. Makes him an even more interesting name to watch. 

  • Fred Yehi will be appearing although both of his previously announced matches have been canceled. Per ACTION, there are rumblings that Arik Royal has "placed a price on Yehi's head."

  • Also appearing...Matt Sells! Ike Cross is featured on the poster, but has stepped away indefinitely from pro-wrestling.

All in all there is a tremendous amount of talent already announced for this show, and I predict a GREAT time will be had by all in attendance.

This show will be a benefit for Make-A-Wish Georgia! The very first ACTION show in April 2018 was also a benefit for this wonderful organization.

Tickets are available at ACTION-Wrestling.com so get them now! 

It only costs $10 to get in the door, support a worthy cause, and witness some fantastic wrestling live!
