Two more exciting matches have been signed for THE BIG BANG~! this Saturday in Kingsport, TN as Lenny Stratton takes on Shawn Shultz in a Contenders Ring Match and the trio of The Cross Brother & Austin West face off with The Jones Boys & Tyler Foshie in a 6-Man Tag Team Grudge Match.
Transportation issues recently cost Lenny Stratton his opportunity at the Innovate US Title. While he is still in The Contender Ring, he will be defending that spot against Shawn Shultz this Saturday in Kingsport.
Shawn Shultz has long been considered one of the South’s best independent wrestlers. Despite wrestling for the promotion on and off since 2005, Shultz has never held a championship in Innovate Wrestling or it’s previous incarnations. However, he has been a decorated champion all over the United States and wants to finally add the Innovate US Title to his resume. But to do so he has to go through one of the best young wrestlers in East Tennessee, Lenny Stratton.
Two of Innovate Wrestling’s most personal feuds roll into one intense match-up this Saturday in Kingsport as Tyler Foshie teams with The Jones Boys (Cooper & Hogan Jones) to square off with Austin West & The Cross Brothers (Aden & Christian Cross).
At ReGenesis in August, Austin West turned his back on his then-tag team partner, Tyler Foshie and joined forces with manager, Mr. Cicero. Since that time Foshie and West have competed in two singles matches. Each man currently holds a victory over the other and a rubber match is a certainty. But before that happens they find themselves teaming with two teams that also have major animosity towards each other.
Also at ReGenesis, The Cross Brother defeated The Jones Boys in controversial fashion to become the final NWA Smoky Mountain Tag Team Champions. In the closing moments of the match, with the referee distracted, Christian Cross threw one of the championship belts to Aden Cross just as Hogan Jones was closing in for a devastating spear. While Hogan was able to connect with the move, he hit his head on the championship belt in the process. With the older Jones Boy knocked unconsciousness, The Cross Brothers were able to secure the victory.
In addition to losing the NWA Smoky Mountain Tag Team Titles, Cooper Jones suffered a rib injury in that match against The Cross Brothers. That injury has put him on the shelf for the last couple of months. However, he will be back in the ring to team with his brother Hogan and Tyler Foshie this Saturday in Kingsport. Will Cooper be 100% at THE BIG BANG~! and if he isn’t, will it have an adverse effect on this 6 Man Tag Team Match?
