ACTION Wrestling 7 SuperShow Is Tonight At 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 "The Captain" Shawn Dean - Cam Carter will be unable to appear so AC Mack will square off against "The Captain" Shawn Dean who has been really impressive the few times I've seen him. He's been in Tyrone before, and had one heck of a cool dive in that match.

    Hear from Shawn Dean, and see a little bit of what he can do on ACTION's Twitter page.

    As this will be a non-title match we now know that it will be AC Mack defending his ACTION Wrestling Championship against Fred Yehi at IWTV's Family Reunion!

  • Bobby Flaco v Slim J - Slim J's new opponent is a guy with local connections, Bobby Flaco! He's out of the highly-regarded WWA4 school in ATL, and has made a big impression on the Tyrone crowd in ACTION. Bobby is coming off a BIG weekend where he opened up ACTION Wrestling 6 with a victory over an impressive Harry Zen, and the next night beat Sonico at the Scenic City Rumble in Chattanooga. Bobby is a guy who is really gaining momentum, and this is the kind of opportunity you love to see a guy like that get.

AC Mack's Opponent For Tomorrow Night Is....

"The Captain" Shawn Dean! He's a guy that the ACTION crowd in Tyrone has seen before, and he's impressive.

WWE Designed A Heated Ring For WrestleMania 35

Grabbed this from a Mutual on Twitter because it's pretty neat. It's definitely worth the seven minutes to look at this ring design.

You also get to meet their ring designer, Mark Carpenter. Behind the scenes stuff like this is so interesting. I don't think I even know how a ring was typically constructed until fairly recently.

Lastly, while I have some issues with some of WWE's production decisions (unnecessary camera zooms/shaky cams/ill-timed crowd shots) they are second to none when it comes to this type of production. You also see it in their hype packages for matches. Great stuff.

Scenic City Showdown 2019: Team TAG V Cabana Man Dan, ACTION CEO Matt Griffin, And "Superstar" Bill Dundee

I missed this amazing match announcement somehow, and was FLOORED by it when I saw it today. I knew Cabana Man Dan and the ACTION CEO were looking for a partner, but I did NOT know they found a legend as their third.

They are teaming with "Superstar" Bill Dundee, and that's pretty incredible if you ask me.

As the graphic shows you're also getting a rematch of the VERY FIRST ACTION Wrestling match on that card as AC Mack takes on Joey Lynch.

This show is taking place at East Ridge HS in Chattanooga, TN on Saturday, April 27, 2019. 



WWE: The Day Of The Shield

WWE released a mini-documentary on The Shield's last day as a unit at WWE Fastlane 2019. It's a must-watch for any fan of the group, and I think for wrestling fans in general.

One of the most interesting aspects was Roman talking about having Dean and Seth to lean on if he wasn't feeling right in his return match.

Oakland A's Make A Wrestling Reference

This popped me hard this morning.

Original Tweet

If you don't get the reference, it's related to how folks tease Dave Meltzer about how "everything is better in Japan."

Captain Marvel (2019) Review

While I don't really let reviews sway me (I LOVE Man Of Steel for example), I was a bit concerned about this film not living up to my expectations. Those concerns were unfounded as me and my wife both really enjoyed it.

I thought Brie Larson was really solid as Vers/Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers, and as always I enjoyed Samuel L. Jackson. Jude Law and Annette Bening were both excellent as well.

Somewhere...someone said that Ben Mendelsohn is always the same type of character in these comic book/Star Wars roles, and it's true. Thing is though I like him in those roles.

Toy Story 4 (2019) Poster And Trailer

This is my son's favorite movie series, and the first movie I ever took him to was Toy Story 3. I'm looking forward to this one even though I'm not a huge Disney/Pixar movie guy.

Toy Story 3 was a death trap of emotion to watch with your child so I'm kind of curious how this one goes.

Now that the trailer has dropped, I'm not sure I even want to see this movie. Too many feelings...

ACTION Wrestling St. Paddy's Brawl Results

I used the Notes gimmick on my phone to share some quick and dirty ACTION Wrestling St. Paddy's Brawl results from Saturday. Here's a more cleaned up version of that for South Atlanta Wrestling.

Winners are in BOLD.

  • Ryan Rembrandt/James Bandy v ACTION Wrestling Champion AC Mack/Alan Angels - Biggest takeaway here is something we all should have seen coming. AC Mack abandoned his partner to save himself. Mack also walked back to the dressing room screaming "I'M STILL THE CHAMP!" even though the title was NOT on the line!

  • Caleb Konley v Michael Marshall in a match competed under #WATTSRULES - To the surprise of no one, Michael Marshall broke his own Watts Rules and beat Konley with a "piledriver hold." Marshall will be back at the Sandy Creek HS show in a match that will NOT be contested under his beloved Watts Rules.

  • Corey Hollis v "The Rock N Roll Model" Matt Sells - I tried to explain what the deal with Corey Hollis was to a friend who had never seen him before. He attacked Matt Sells before the bell rang. I said, "That's what Corey Hollis is about."
