I woke up today in a very jubilant mood because I realized that XWA’s Wrestlution 16 is today. XWA is an independent organization based out of Rhode Island that has hosted some of the best in the business like AJ Styles, Rhyno, and so many more. They also host some of the best in the independent world right now like Ricochet, Zach Sabre Jr., JT Dunn, Antonio Atama, TK O’Ryan, Vinny Marseglia, and so many more. The company’s annual extravaganza takes place this time at the company’s own XWA Event Center in West Warwick, Rhode Island and it promises to be one that people will never forget. Yesterday on their Facebook event page, they announced that NJPW stars Sho Tanaka and Yohey Komatsu were going to be at Wrestlution 16. The night is being headlined by a special triple threat match that features superstars Ricochet, Zach Sabre Jr. and JT Dunn all in one match. Last month at XWA Breakout, Zach Sabre Jr. went to battle with JT Dunn in a match that the winner would move on to Wrestlution to face Ricochet. The only problem is that the two fought to a draw and XWA then determined that they would both compete in the match against Ricochet setting up one hell of a main event.
The other main event of the night features The Miracle Mike Bennett facing XWA Champion and Kingdom member TK O’Ryan for the championship, but there’s a catch. TK is cashing in his special stipulation which allows him to have whoever he wants at ringside while Bennett is not allowed to have anyone. It seems a little unfair, but that is the stipulation the Miracle needs to deal with. That is definitely not all there is for the night people, there is a hell of a lot more. The night also features a six man Contract Stipulation Ladder Match which will feature Christian Casanova, Antonio Atama, Kevin Bennett, Devin Blaze, Nitro, and Ace. They are all fighting for the same thing that TK O’Ryan won last year and has used. In what should be a brutal match, Sami Callahan will be taking on Kingdom member Vinny Marseglia which means this is a must see match. In a triple threat match, Travis “Flip” Gordon welcomes former NXT stars Mr. 450, and Jon Cruz. TNA talent Braxton Sutter takes on the legendary Brian Fury while Wrestling royalty and third gen superstar Tessa Blanchard takes on Sumie Sakai. Rudeboy Riley will take on one half of The Irish Airborne in Jake Crist and I believe Ethan Case will take on Anthony Henry. This is definitely a night of wrestling that you absolutely do no want to miss and if you are not aqauinted with them yet, do yourself a favor and do so. You can check out their official website here and here are my predictions for the night:
Ethan Case will defeat Anthony Henry
Brian Fury will defeat Braxton Sutter
Travis Gordon will win his triple threat match
Tessa Blanchard will defeat Sumie Sakai
Rudeboy Riley will defeat Jake Crist
Antonio Atama wins the ladder match
TK O’Ryan will defeat Mike Bennett
Ricochet will defeat JT Dunn and Zach Sabre Jr.
Vinny Marseglia will defeat Sami Callahan
