Mark your calendars because Inspire Pro returns to the Marchesa Theater on September 1st for more great pro wrestling action. We have for you the full rundown of the stacked card, including the special bonus match that is sure to blow the roof off of the Marchesa.
TAG TEAM MATCH: The Pump Patrol (AJ Summers & Jared Wayne) vs. The Dagger Brothers (Kevin & Mike Dagger)
You wanted tag team wrestling? Well, that is exactly what you are going to get come September 1st! The Puerto Rico-based Dagger Brothers make their Inspire Pro debuts, and they are dead set on making an impact. Kevin and Mike Dagger will contest the self-proclaimed “Pump Patrol,” comprised of “Brooklyn’s Finest” AJ Summers and “The Maverick” Jared Wayne. Wayne made an impressive splash in last month’s 4-Way Scramble, a match that AJ Summers was originally scheduled to compete in as well. Due to an injury sustained while training, Summers was taken out of the contest. Now cleared to compete come September 1st, Summers will be looking to make an impression. Can Summers and Wayne work together, or will the bond of blood overcome them?
The Great Depression w/ Penny Arcade vs. Thomas Shire
On July 7th, the mystery surrounding The Great Depression was finally revealed when he stepped through the curtain. However, the limits of this hooded monster still remain in question when he took on and defeated an injured Jeff Gant. More will be revealed on September 1st when The Great Depression squares off with Thomas Shire, a man with a bit more size and an impressive resume. What will happen when Penny Arcade sicks her beast on a former All Japan competitor and student of Dory Funk?
Jeffrey Gant vs. “Unholy” Gregory James
Speaking of Jeff Gant, the man who calls himself “The Youngest Gun” will compete against a man does not possess the size advantage of The Depression, though that doesn’t mean he poses any less of a challenge. “Unholy” Gregory James made his dark presence known with a hard-hitting victory over Andy Dalton back in July, and it seems as if this is just the beginning. Can Jeff come back stronger than before or will the Unholy One punish him for all of his sins?
“Untouchable” Alex Reigns vs. Chris Cross
Two athletes that were relatively unknown to Austin, Texas made a huge impression at “The Beginning”. Chris Cross gained a huge win over student of Davey Richards, Darren Dean, while “Untouchable” Alex Reigns came within inches of defeating JoJo Bravo. Unfortunately, Reigns arrogance got in the way when he decided to punish Bravo rather than put him away when he had the opportunity. Will Chris Cross develop a winning streak in Inspire, or can Alex Reigns amend the mistake that cost him the spot Bravo won in the Inspire Championship Semi Finals?
“Dirty” Andy Dalton vs. “The Cowboy” James Claxton
Two heavy hitters will collide when “The Cowboy” James Claxton squares off with “Dirty” Andy Dalton. Both men impressed at the debut Inspire event, but also suffered loses. Neither man is looking to get on a losing streak, and they will do everything in their power to keep that from happening. This match is sure to be an absolute war, but who will emerge victorious?
"Absolute" Ricky Starks vs. "The Infamous" Shawn Vexx
Back in July, Shawn Vexx missed his opportunity to break into the Inspire Championship Semi Finals when he missed his qualifier due to travel problems. Vexx being a man of integrity immediately signed to appear on our September 1st card against "Absolute" Ricky Starks. Vexx later appealed to Chairman Greg Symonds for another shot to advance into the Semi Finals, and it was granted. Fortunately, for Ricky Starks, that means he will also get a second chance at entering the Championship tournament by proxy. Starks lost his qualifying match to Bolt Brady after he refused to break a hold by the referee's five-count back in July, and he's been stewing since. But will he be able to control his temper this time? Which man will take this chance and run with it, earning a golden ticket to October's three-way on the road to crowning the first Inspire Pro Champion?
BONUS MATCH: "Showtime" Scot Summers vs. "The Man With The Killer Instinct" Ray Rowe
If you follow us on our various social media sites, you know that we promised a special bonus match for September 1st, as a gift to all of you for the wait in between shows. Well, the paperwork has been signed, and we are excited to announce that two of Texas’s top stars will go head to head, in a match that could main event any show in the state, if not the country. These two have met in singles competition only once previously, and it was a match that ended in disqualification. No true winner was crowned and there was still the question of who the better man was. On September 1st, we find out. It’ll be “Showtime” Scot Summers vs. “The Man With The Killer Instinct” Ray Rowe. This match has also been designated as a QUALIFIER in the hunt to determine Inspire Pro’s FIRST Champion, with the winner going on to the next show’s Semi Final Three-Way dance.
INSPIRE PRO CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI FINALS: “One Man” Mike Dell vs. “The Heaviest Sumo In The Land” JoJo Bravo vs. “The Supercharged Superstar” Bolt Brady
At Inspire Pro’s inaugural event, Davey Vega cemented his spot in Inspire Pro Championship Final three-way match which will determine our champion. Three other men earned spots for September 1st’s three-way semi final. All three men are fan favorites with one intention in mind: to achieve greatness. Will Mike Dell live up to the impact that he made with his shocking reveal at our last event? Can Bolt Brady prove the naysayers who feel he advanced solely on a DQ wrong? Does JoJo Bravo have the drive, focus & skill to reach that next level? They all have the chance, but only one will join Davey Vega in the Championship Finals.
