Going into September, neither TWE or RCW have announced dates for the next local shows. Fans in San Antonio cannot imagine the difficulties in arranging a venue suitable for presenting the highest quality wrestling.
The TWE invasion of ACW is the most significant continuing wrestling story as last month the Tag Titles for both promotions were unified, as were the TWE TV Title and ACW Texas Title. Also in the mix is the RCW Tag Team Champions The Texas Treats who faced The TWE Tag Champs The Children of Pain in a no rules match in Giddings, Texas. The CoP came out on top in this match, but these two teams could well match up again soon.
Several RCW wrestlers are scheduled at the huge NLPW show in Arlington on the 10th, with RCW Champion and TNA Tag Champion Hotstuff Hernandez facing Samoa Joe in the main event. Also scheduled are the Texas Treats, Hugh Rogue, Fast Eddie, Wally Darkmon, J.T. LaMotta and Ikaika. This is the type of show which the entire industry watches. In the first NLPW show, Milano Collection AT faced Sonjay Dutt in a match which many people say stole the show. Good luck to all the competitors on this show.
August Rankings and Wrestler of the Month
The rankings this month are sure to be controversial. The top of the list is filled with wrestlers who never fight for the "Big 3" local promotions. This is due to the increase in the number of Lucha Libre shows in San Antonio combined with the use of several wrestlers in numerous promotions throughout the area, including PWI, MAW and TWA. In fact, the top point earner is a wrestler who hadn't even appeared in a match in San Antonio before this month. Bobby Garrett holds the MAW Tag Titles with JJ Wakefield and also won the PWI Tag Titles with Manny Villalobos this month. Appearing on 3 shows in main events and title matches Bobby Garrett is the San Antonio Independent Wrestling Scene Wrestler of the Month.
Points are awarded for (1) appearing on a card, (2) appearing in a match, (3) winning the match, (4) if the match is a title match, (5) if the match is a main event, (6) starting the show with a title belt, and (7) ending the show with a title belt.
