ACTION Wrestling Presents Scenic City Futures 2019 Thoughts

This is the standard disclaimer on the Scenic City 2019 pieces, skip down to the underlined part below if you read the Night 1 piece already.

If you've ever paid attention to me or this site before you will already know this, but any new readers need to be told. This piece will not be a report or review of the matches or the shows. There are way too many people who do that better than me, and I will link to some Georgia Wrestling History reports at the bottom of this piece.

This series is going to basically be a look at some random thoughts and takeaways from this weekend. Most will be about the shows themselves, but I'm also going to touch on the entire SCI phenomenon and the other events that were held at the Best Western Heritage Inn.

Also I was not able to get in town early enough for the Crux event, and did not make the trip up to SUP in Nashville either.

With all that out of the way, let's get started with Part 1 Scenic City Invitational 2019 Night One Thoughts.

ACTION Wrestling Presents Scenic City Futures

  • It was great seeing Jeffrey Taylor of Jeffrey Show Live doing the ring announcing in place of Scott Hensley. Scott does a great job of course, but it was nice to see Jeffrey get that opportunity and Scott getting to enjoy the show differently.

  • Benjamin Carter is an exciting prospect. He has a great look, and has a fun high-flying style.

  • ACTION regular James Bandy is someone I've enjoyed getting to watch over the last year or so. One thing he has that a lot on the scene don't is SIZE. Bandy is a big dude, but can keep up with anyone in there.

ACTION Wrestling 10 Is UP On IWTV

As you'll see in the Tweet below this one is called ACTION For Southside Support on IWTV.

IWTV commentator, Dylan Hales called this "the best ACTION show so far."

My results and review post went up yesterday as well! It was a fantastic show to witness live, and I hope y'all enjoy it.

Don't forget to listen for SAW's Norko on commentary for a couple of matches as well.

WWE NXT Moves To Wednesday Night On USA Network

The Wednesday Night War is officially here as NXT will air opposite of AEW on TNT. NXT also gets a jump of a couple of weeks with AEW debuting in October.

I don't currently make a point to watch NXT, but this makes it somewhat more likely although I have another commitment at that time. Once AEW begins airing I will probably make it the priority.

The main thing is I'm too old to hate watch anything so if NXT or AEW isn't for me, I'm simply not going to watch either.

WWE King Of The Ring 2019 Predictions

I never do predictions, I don't like doing predictions, but I'm doing one right now because someone suggested it on Twitter.

Download and print your own bracket on WWE's site!

The file didn't come out as easy to read as I would like, but here's my predictions below.


  • Cesaro v Samoa Joe - Tempted to go Cesaro here, but I think Joe gets the nod. Don't feel great about this prediction though with Cesaro looking like a project on Raw that may get some attention.

  • Ricochet v Drew McIntyre - I could see either winning the whole thing, but I think they want to give Drew some shine so he moves on via nefarious means.

  • Cedric Alexander v Sami Zayn - I just don't see moving Sami out of the first round or doing Sami v Corbin or McIntyre (as I have Corbin beating The Miz) so Cedric who is another project on Raw moves on.

ACTION Wrestling 10 Results And Review

If you just want the results themselves you may want to check out Norko's Quick ACTION Wrestling 10 Results 8/16/2019 for that.

Rob Brodhecker with Georgia Wrestling History also posted an ACTION Wrestling Report from Tyrone on August 16.

With that little bit of housekeeping out of the way, let's jump right into what many have called ACTION Wrestling's best show to date!

  1. Alan Angels v James Bandy - Interesting match to start the show with as these guys had a bit of a role reversal at the last show.

    James Bandy is a guy I had often referred to as "ACTION's Hometown Hero," but apparently the way he had the ACTION Wrestling Championship snatched from him at ACTION Wrestling 8 caused him to change his demeanor a bit.

    At the last show he attacked Tommy Maserati while the WWA4 wrestling school crew was paying their respects to him. Angels didn't like it, and here we are with a newly beloved Alan Angels, and a despised James Bandy.

    These two got the show started off hot, and the crowd really enjoyed seeing Angels in a new light, AND him defeating Bandy in light of his recent actions mentioned above.

  • ACTION Wrestling Champion AC Mack defends against Slim J! - As the Official ACTION Wrestling Twitter account (@WrestleACTION1) pointed out, both these guys had an excellent shot at winning the 2019 Scenic City Invitational, and now they are battling over the ACTION Wrestling Championship.

    Slim J has been doing his thing since the early-2000s, and at this point is a guy I consider a Georgia indie legend. People sometimes forget that he can handle himself on the technical wrestling aspect as well as brawling, and high-flying.

    AC Mack's story is a little different because he hasn't been around nearly as long, but he's also tremendously accomplished for someone who has been in the business for less than five years. Love him or hate him, you have to respect his abilities.

    The ACTION Wrestling Champion, AC Mack is going to have a task ahead of him if he wants to still hold that title coming out of ACTION Wrestling 10, but he's answered the challenge before (even if bending the rules is occasionally necessary).

    This will be a HOT one, and I know the crowd in Tyrone, GA is looking forward to it.
