ACE Heavyweight Championship:
Fresh off his win against Kenny Omega, ACE Heavyweight Champion Dan Maff told ACE management that on Saturday, August 8th he again wanted the best to face him in the ACE Arena & signed his "open door" policy contract. Fresh off his stint in World Wrestling Entertainment "Classic" Colt Cabana has signed on the dotted line and would love nothing more then to make a bold statement on the indy scene. What better way to do this then to not only defeat one of the brightest stars but to take away the ACE Heavyweight Championship from its current owner Dan Maff. Will Dan Maff cement his spot as the undisputed ACE Heavyweight Champion or will it be GOOD TIMES…GREAT MEMORIES!!! for Colt Cabana?
Also in action that night….
2 out of 3 Falls:
The first time in 2009 when Mo Sexton & Azrieal locked up it wasn’t scheduled & neither man scored a pinfall or submission win over the other. Their seconds meeting at CrossRoads resulted in the same thing – now at ACE Anarchy ’09 someone MUST get a pin or submission victory TWICE to be declared the winner. Will this 2 out of 3 falls encounter lead to a resolution between Sexton and "The Good Guy" or will this just lead to greater encounters between the two?
ACE Diamond Division Championship:
At CrossRoads, Bandido Jr made good on his word to walk out with a win (over Rayza & Lince Dorado) and establish himself as a MAJOR player for the Diamond Division Championship. After witnessing the brutality that Mike Donovan & Shawn Walker put themselves through for the coveted title, Bandido was all to happy to add his name as the next in line to vie for the championship. Can Bandido ride this "title" wave to the Diamond Division Championship at Anarchy ’09 or will Shawn Walker (with
ACE Tag Team Championship:
Since the conclusion of CrossRoad ’09, the office of the championship committee has been BOMBARDED (literally) by the Saints of Brutality who have been demanding a return match with the men who dethroned them for the gold: Johnson 2 Johnson. Stockade & Brolly claim it should have been them NOT Andrew & Brian showcasing the tag team division at CrossRoads & claim they will stop at NOTHING to decimate the reigning champs. Since learning of the threats & rematch demands of the S.o.B., ‘Big’ Brian & Andrew ‘Tiny’ were all to excited to add their names to the championship contracts for Anarchy ’09. They know another win over the Saints will just cement them as the TRUE tag team champions & the team to beat here in ACE.
WSU Womens Championship:
Fresh off the heels of the first ever IRON WOMAN match, Mercedes Martinez has been waiting for some new challenger to rise up from with in Women’s Superstars UnCensored (WSU) and that challenger has stepped up & its none other then former TNA Superstar & former WSU Champion: NIKKI ROXX! Nikki held the WSU Championship in 2007 but never received her return match as the former champion. Having recently secured the #1 contender’s status by winning the second ever Uncensored Rumble, Roxx spoke to the championship committee of WSU and appealed her LONG overdue title rematch as well as cashing in her #1 contender’s shot later this month. With TWO opportunities in the hot summer heat of August can Nikki Roxx regain her former championship at Anarchy ’09 or will Mercedes Martinez cool off her challenger & retain the WSU Championship?
Special Challenge Match:
On the heels of what was considered by many fans to almost be "match of the night" at CrossRoads ’09, Mike Donovan finds himself still in the hunt to recapture the ACE Diamond Division Championship, however now standing in his way is a man who made his debut at CrossRoads – Lince Dorado. Dorado, who was backstage watching the ladder match that pitted Donovan against Shawn Walker for the Diamond Division title, was overheard saying that in order to really make an impact in ACE he may need to take down one of the men who almost stole the show: Mike Donovan. Can Donovan rebound and again find himself in the hunt for the Diamond Division title or will Lince Dorado make the impact he’s looking for here in ACE… at Donovan’s expense?
American Championship Entertainment is proud to announce that
More matches & talent to be announced in the coming weeks

WXW C-4’s annual return to Sportsfest happened on July 19th for an over four hour extravaganza! By now you’ve no doubt read all the publicity about the history of the event, so let’s get right down to the recap of the action:
Commissioner Maven Bentley was on hand to open the event and introduce WXW C-4’s first second-generation diva: Miss Risza, the daughter of the late WWF wrestler Steve King, a good friend of the Samoan family. Shawn Credle handled commentary duties for the broadcast. Your cameramen were Ethan Cramer and Eric Shaffer, and your timekeeper in attendance was Joel Oreski. Special thanks also to event sponsors Commix Hotel and Valley Welding.
1) The first match of the afternoon was a popular favorite at Sportsfest: the battle royal. This time, wrestlers entered at staggered intervals to make things more unpredictable. Mercedes Martinez won the event, to win a title shot of her choice.
2) AC Sledge, John The Man & Rex Taylor knocked off the trio of Chrono Chris, Mr. Harrison & Wigeezy.20 After the match, Steve Corino came to the ring with his Extreme Horsemen, Papa Don & "Second To None" Anthony. Corino explained to AC Sledge that it was time for him to stop hiding behind a fake name, and take his place as an
3) “Panama City Playboy” Adam Cole pinned newcomer
4) “Puerto Rican Terror” Havoc & newest Wild Samoan Training Center graduate Nyia beat Danny DeManto & Brooke Carter in a mixed tag team match.
5) Sabian pinned The Dynamic Sensation (TDS) to become #1 contender to Ultimate Hybrid Title.
6) Maverick pinned Bruno Marciano.
7) To settle the Ultimate Hybrid Title situation stemming from two men holding onto the belt at the Go for the Gold match, VSK beat Sean Maluta in 2 straight falls of a two out of three falls match, but not without the presence of The Dynamic Sensation, the first man to hold that title.
8) DJ Hyde pinned Ki-Vuta.
9) Big Joe Gomez returned and pinned Brimstone.
=2 0 10) All Money Is Legal (K. Murda & K. Pusha) vs. Extreme Horsemen members Papa Don & “Second To None” Anthony ended in a double countout as the teams paired up and brawled outside the ring.
11) Campeon Internacional Eddie Guapo pinned AJ Sabotage.
12) Supreme Lee Great pinned longtime rival and "The Wrestler" co-star “Rotten” Tommy Suede.
13) In our VALLEY WELDING sponsored match of the event, “Samoan Storm” Afa Jr pinned Flash Wheeler, then was attacked suddenly by a chair-wielding SWB (Slyck Wagner Brown). Perhaps SWB was looking to avenge a loss from Sportsfest 2003. Samu saved his younger brother with a chairshot of his own to SWB, but the Afa Jr/SWB feud is far from over. SWB was able to duck a chairshot in return from Afa Jr which only infuriated Afa more. As Slyck made his way to the back, Afa demanded a match against SWB when WXW C4 comes back to
14) Elite Tag Team Champions, and unlikely allies after Go for the Gold, X-Treme Billy Dre am & “The Gift” John Bane (with Doc Daniels) beat Untouchables (Anthony Michaels & Mark Gore), in a match which saw the expected amount of interference from Doc Daniels and tens ion between the tag champs.
15) Devon Moore pinned the debuting Damien Dragon, but it looked like the Notorious one had a handful of tights, unseen by the referee.
16) In the main event, sponsored by COUNTRY CLUB LAWNS (610-966-3210), Steve Corino (with Rob Dimension) beat Ultimate Heavyweight Champion “Hollywood Bad Boy” Eric Cobian by DQ when Doc Daniels pulled the ref out to break his count and prevent Corino from winning the title.. As Corino looked on with disbelief as Doc Daniels punched out the ref, Cobian was able to catch Corino in his running Death Valley Driver. Cobian and Daniels stood proud over Corino with the crowd booing the Champ when Rob Dimension ran in to check on Steve Corino. As he was checking on him, Doc Daniels leveled him from behind with the Singapore Cane. Daniels and Cobian continued to beat down Dimension when Daniels decided to turn his attention to Corino. Daniels though Corino was out long enough for him to get a few cheap shots on when to his surprise, "Mr Wrestling" stopped Doc’s punch and grabbed him by the collar ready to deliver one of his own until the remaining members of the Daniels Dynasty hit the ring for the save. The Extreme Horsemen rushed to the ring to back up Corino and Dimension and swing the odds in their favor. As soon as the Dynasty started to see things getting fair, they bailed out to survey the damage they delivered Even though Cobian retained the title via DQ, Corino gave notice to the Daniels Dynasty that he and the Horsemen were making WXW C-4 their new home and wanted to go 4 on 4, elimination style when C4 returns to Allentown on September 5th! The Daniels Dynasty agreed (with Billy Dream having no say in the matter) to meet them for the first ever "Total Elimination" match in WXW C4!
Weren’t able to make Sportsfest? Don’t worry because starting next week on Blast TV, you’ll see some of the best action that Sportsfest delivered. Although we can’t show you EVERYTHING, you’ll have the chance to purchase the DVD in the comings weeks. Blast TV airs each Sunday at 10 pm on Service Electric TV2. Don’t have SECTV? Head over to HybridEnt.tv to watch the weeks episode On Demand, all day, every day!

ISPW PRESENTS THE WAR TO SETTLE THE SCORE TO BENEFIT MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY ASSOCIATION ON AUGUST 22ND IN FREEHOLD, NJ; 60 MINUTE IRON MAN MATCH SIGNED BETWEEN DANNY INFERNO VS. JUDAS YOUNG, IRON SHEIK GETS INDUCTED INTO ISPW HALL OF FAME, NEW
Independent Superstars of Professional Wrestling presents "The War To Settle The Score" on Saturday evening, August 22nd, 2009 at the ISPW Arena in Freehold, NJ to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The main event for this huge show is the biggest in the history of ISPW. It will pit ISPW Champion vs. ISPW Champion in a 60 Minute Iron Man Match featuring Judas Young and Danny Inferno. The winner of this match will be crowned the Undisputed ISPW World Heavyweight Champion.
Young and Inferno have been in a heated feud over the last year which recently saw Inferno stage his own retirement in an effort to one-up his former best friend. Both performers, who appeared in Mickey Rourke‘s hit movie, "The Wrestler," are currently in intense training for what they are both looking to showcase as the greatest match in the history of independent wrestling.
Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a group of more than 30 genetic diseases characterized by progressive weakness and degeneration of the skeletal muscles that control movement. Some forms of MD are seen in infancy or childhood, while others may not appear until middle age or later. The disorders differ in terms of the distribution and extent of muscle weakness (some forms of MD also affect cardiac muscle), age of onset, rate of progression, and pattern of inheritance.
ISPW is honored to be able to help raise money for such an important cause just two weeks before the 44th Annual Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon.
The Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon is must-see TV watching during the Labor Day weekend, an end-of-summer tradition in the
Now an entertainment extravaganza airing live from
2009 marks the 44th Annual Labor Day Telethon – with a bevy of stars and featured performances – lasting more than 21 hours beginning at 9PM ET on Sunday, September 6 and lasting through Monday afternoon on Labor Day, September 7, 2009.
Other action packed matches already signed for this event include former WWE Superstar Nunzio finally going one on one with ISPW General Manager "Mr. Personality" Nicholas Nice, a Loser Leaves ISPW Match pitting Danny Doring against Christian York, Julio Dinero (with Miss Michelle) in a heated grudge match against Flash, Rick Fuller taking on Chase Del Monte, Pro Wrestling Noah’s Bobby Fish making his ISPW debut against Crowbar, plus The Logan Brothers and Baby Hughie in action!
Local celebrities and personalities are also being contacted as of press time to take part in this very important and worthy cause.
ISPW is also very happy to announce that The New Jersey Devils will be sending Grant Marshall to The War To Settle The Score to help ISPW Bodyslam MD!
On this night, the biggest feuds in the ISPW realm will hopefully see their ends. But the biggest battle of the night will be you joining us in the fight against MD. Be there live on August 22nd at the ISPW Arena (3-2 Count Athletic Training Facility) 323A
Tickets for this very special event are available now on ISPWLive.com or by calling (732) 409-1132.
