River City Wrestling is coming off a high-profile event -- Nowhere to Run II -- which took place at the Indoor Soccer Club on May 19. This event was the culmination of the war between Team MEX and the Caucasian Knights, as well as the feud between "One Man" Mike Dell & "The Smashing Machine" Ikaika, as well as original Hardbody members "Simply Luscious" Andy Dalton & "The Mind of Wrestling" J.T. Lamotta. Rivalries were settled, new faces emerged (Li Fang, and of course former WWE star Heidenreich), and now new rivalries will begin as RCW marches to its Second Anniversary in August.
For the RCW Cyber Championship
champion and Team MEX member Sicodelico Jr. defends the title against Caucasian Knight member "The Real Deal" Rory Fox
It was apparent that after the Electrified Cage Match at Nowhere to Run II, that the Caucasian Knights would never be the same. First, original member Messiah has been nowhere to be found. And then, following the cage match, the CK tried to place the blame on "Cruiserweight Killer" B.J. Turner, but Turner would have none of that, and refused to back down from his CK teammates. With Turner's alliance in jeopardy, and McKenzie and Mike Foxx busy in North Texas, Rory Fox has stepped up to the plate and has challenged Sicodelico Jr. -- a Team MEX member -- for the Cyber Championship.
Sicodelico Jr. has held the Cyber Title since Texas Explosion III in February, winning the belt in a Three-Way Dance over former-champ Mike Dell and then-RCW Champion Ikaika. Since then, the second-generation star has defended the title against B.J. Turner and Gemini. With Hernandez not able to make Friday's event due to TNA commitments, it's Sicodelico Jr.'s turn to step up as a key singles wrestler for Team MEX.
Rory Fox, meanwhile, has been on a tear since moving to Texas. MTV profiled Fox's training and debut into wrestling under the tutelage of Les Thatcher. Since coming to Texas, Fox has taken on all challengers -- including TNA's Eric Young and Hernandez (who Fox defeated) in the same weekend -- and has aligned himself with the Caucasian Knights. This is Fox's first chance at a title shot and Fox has stated he will not let this opportunity go to waste.
For the RCW Tag Team Championship
champions The Hardbodies (Andy Dalton & Joey Spector) defends against former two-time Tag Team Champions The Texas Treats (Don Juan & Chris Marval)
The Chicago Bulls. The New York Yankees. The Dallas Cowboys. The San Antonio Spurs. All of these teams have something in common -- they all have won at least three championships. In RCW, The Texas Treats -- Don Juan & Chris Marval -- could do the same by winning the company's Tag Team Championship for the third time on Friday, June 1.
The Treats almost tasted gold by nearly winning the tournament to crown RCW's first Tag Team Champions in February 2006 (available on DVD). However, The Nerdy Boys were more successful on that night. The Treats eventually overcame that obstacle and defeated The Nerdy Boys -- although they lost the titles that same night in an impromptu match backstage to The Shadow Alliance (Joey Spector & Wally Darkmon). This happened after The Treats said they would defend the title any place, any where, any time, as long as there was a referee and a bell (this aired on the first episode of RCW on KCWX). Later, The Treats would win them back for a second time in a Tag Team Scramble Match at Breaking All of the Rules II with The Shadow Alliance & The Nerdy Boys in a match considered one of the best in 2006. Then, in January of 2007, they lost the titles to Messiah & McKenzie of the Caucasian Knights.
The Texas Treats helped build RCW into what it is today. With a win on Friday, The Treats -- who have been both loved and hated -- could place a big stamp on their RCW careers by winning the titles for a third time.
The Hardbodies, meanwhile, have certainly earned their place in RCW. Both Andy Dalton and Joey Spector have proved their worth. For a year now, RCW fans have seen both of these wrestlers mature and develop their talent with hard-fought matches. After coming under the guidance of RCW Owner Brandon Oliver, The Hardbodies have convinced fans to get behind their unorthodox style and have managed to win the RCW Tag Titles in what was seen as a very big upset over The Caucasian Knights at Battle Lines.
These two teams met in January in a spectacular Two-Out-of-Three Falls Match, and it tore the house down. On Friday, it will be a showdown.
Quinten Allen vs. "The Smashing Machine" Ikaika
This could be a major victory for Quinten Allen. RCW's first ever Ring King (then-known as The Bling King), QA has gone from hated to loved by RCW's faithful. His speed and agility frustrates opponents and a win over Ikaika, now ranked as the #1 contender with the Cage Match victory over Mike Dell at Nowhere to Run II, would move him higher into position for a title shot.
Meanwhile, Ikaika is searching for his title opportunity once Masada returns from Japan. The former RCW Champion finished his rivalry over Mike Dell, and can now concentrate on the man who took the title away from him -- Masada.
It's said that if you want to be a contender in RCW, you have to get through Ikaika first. Will Quinten Allen be able to defeat "The Smashing Machine?"
Marty Cone vs. "One Man" Mike Dell
RCW fans saw the frustrated Mike Dell after he lost to Ikaika in the Cage Match at Nowhere to Run II. Dell blamed everyone but himself for his shortcomings. Dell, a former Cyber Champion, has almost won the RCW Championship twice -- once over Hernandez (but Oliver reversed the decision) and and once over Ikaika (but the match was restarted). He lost his Cyber Title at Texas Explosion III to Sicodelico Jr. when Ikaika smashed Dell with a chair, and then Dell complained about his Cage Match loss to Ikaika. Now the question is ... is Mike Dell right? Or is it a case of bad luck? Or does he refuse to look into the mirror?
Meanwhile, Marty Cone has made a huge impact within a short time. The mind games he employs with his unconventional tactics and lifestyle distracts his opponents. The crowd has quickly embraced the flamboyant Cone, and he recently won the RCW's Ring King crown after defeating former-king Spector and Quinten Allen in a Three-Way Dance at Nowhere to Run II.
Both of these athletes need wins for different reasons. Who will come out on top?
"Mr. Beautiful" Rudy Russo vs. "Mind of Wrestling" J.T. Lamotta
Russo has been on a roll as of late. After standing up to Ikaika in his return, to challenging The Hardbodies for the Tag Team Titles, to a victory over Li Fang and now, a television "star" with a promo that aired on KENS-5. Russo's out to prove that he's a big deal, and on June 1, he hopes to show that with a victory.
Meanwhile, "The Mind of Wrestling" hasn't been looking too attractive -- unless you like guys in dresses. Lamotta lost the "Loser Wears a Dress Match" to fellow original Hardbody member Andy Dalton, and then in the same night, lost to the much-bigger Heidenreich after tearing up the former WWE star's poem. Nowhere to Run II wasn't a great night for Lamotta. But can "The Mind of Wrestling" -- who will be wrestling in a dress -- be able to turn things around?
Plus much more!
