>On a weekend full of wild gimmick shows this one may be the most bold of all. We're going back to a time when people made the trek to see international talent brought in under one roof to do what they do best. Yes... this will be a wrestling show for the wrestling fan.

>The idea, based off US vs The World last year, is to do a show focusing on some names you may not have heard of but certainly won't be available to us in 2021 once they explode. The goal is a couple first time singles matches & presenting a variety of international names.

>Learning from last year our plan is to not overbook the show. It will be a tight 2 hours & every match will give the guys a chance to shine.

>If you want to whet your whistle with great wrestling before NXT or ROH - this is where you need to be on Saturday afternoon. (Yes a subtle reminder there will be plenty of drinks available!)

ugh is Drew doing more of his lame worked-shoots that don't add anything to Beyond? I guess the "network pilot" is just a gimmick that's trying to make the indie more like a TV show

FINALLY! BEYOND WRESTLING TO INTRODUCE A CHAMPIONSHIP AT THEIR "NETWORK PILOT"
>Beyond Wrestling will crown their first ever champion when they tape their "network pilot" on March 1 in Melrose, Massachusetts.

>For over a decade Beyond has been at the cutting edge of the independent scene, but the promotion has never had its own championship. In recent years the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship has regularly been defended on Beyond events, only adding to the desire of the promotion's fanbase to see a Beyond-specific title created.

>The decision to introduce a championship to Beyond was made by the project's investors earlier this week. The yet-to-be-named General Manager will determine which participants will compete for the coveted prize.

>While Beyond Wrestling's owner Drew Cordeiro was unable to comment on the matter, Beyond's content distribution partners at IndependentWrestling.TV are pleased by the decision.

"Beyond Wrestling has been a huge part of the growth and success of IWTV," said IWTV official Gerard Durling. "For so long there has been resistance to Beyond having their own championship and I'm glad to see those days are behind us."

Tessa Blanchard Pulls Out Of BattleWorld'88
>Tessa Blanchard has pulled out of BattleWorld'88, which was set for Jan. 31 in Vancouver. Blanchard was scheduled to wrestle The Dark Sheik.

>Blanchard was accused of racism and bullying on Jan. 11 by multiple wrestlers, but she denied the allegations. Shortly after the allegations came to light, Dark Sheik contemplated not working the match with Tessa, which was booked before accusations were made.

>Tessa made the decision for Sheik, deciding to pull herself from the event on Jan. 20.

>Blanchard, who won the IMPACT World Title the day after the allegations came out on social media, issued a statement on Jan. 16 where she denied using racist language. She did not address the bullying allegations.

>Timothy Thatcher is currently at the WWE Performance Center and has signed a WWE developmental deal, PWInsider.com has confirmed. Thatcher started with the company this week.

>Thatcher, 36, has long been a talent that WWE has been interested in but had previously turned down overtures from the company. William Regal and Canyon Cemen had both had Thatcher on their radar in recent years.

>Best known for his work in EVOLVE, Thatcher has been a world traveled veteran who has competed for WXW in Germany, Revolution Pro in Great Britain, PWG and MLW in the United States and many other promotions. As an in-ring worker, he's in the top tier out there currently, so this is a tremendous signing for the company.

Interesting to note. Beyond sold out the currently available Melrose tickets which I counted to be about 322.

https://twitter.com/beyondwrestling/status/1225095556021805064

Evolve has sold 188 for the same day later on. And that's with appearances by Rhea Ripley, Keith Lee and Ciampa promoted. Attendance in Melrose in the past for Beyond hasn't been great but they're going to have to add more tickets.

My theory on it is that it's a piss take that's a deliberate "fuck you" to the city of Melrose. I only recently learned about their history there and how the city threatened them if they ever released an intergender JT Dunn & Mia Yim match that they ok'ed before it took place and freaked out about after the fact. Hence the over the top "no indergender" thing. Drew probably figured he could have some fun with it and whatever the angle is will end with them pretty much saying "nah fuck you, we're staying the same."

Well it seems to be working they've sold over 300 tickets and by my last count Evolve has sold under 200.

Some people seem to not be reallizing it's a very obvious work which is fucking hilarious.

Well he's bringing over ASUKA (going by VENY for some reason) which is cool. She'll definitely get over both for the trans stuff and because she's really damn good. She actively wants to wrestle overseas too so if she works more shows that weekend I'm guessing some indies will be quick to try to book her.

She seemingly got overwhelmed by AEW and had a mental breakdown. Went silent on twitter for awhile and stopped taking any bookings. After a bit she started taking local bookings again and now seems to be back on track.

Oh no no no, that title proudly belongs to the "thirstiest wrestler of Twitter"; AJ Gray. Stokely Hathway has well documented AJ's many sexual escapades. He did recently succeed in getting a follow from Liv Morgan after he offered to take her out for chicken sandwiches

I still maintain that Cody half throwing her to the wolves with the Bayley comparison (shitting on Bayley in the process) at that Starrcast panel caused all of the most horrid WWE Diva stans/Bayley fans and the notorious terrible human beings Sasha stans to maul her online with abuse which caused to break mentally if she was already anyway fragile to begin with. Some people just are not ready/capable of handling that level of toxic scrutiny from mental people who frankly shouldnt have a voice as they choose to abuse the privilege so bad. Kevin Steen said when he got to WWE the level of hate and abuse he would get from "fans" online increased x1000 fold and was something even he was unprepared for as he thought he had seen the worst of the worst of wrestling fandom. It was a whole new level of hate and bile and vitriol that caught even him off guard.

The fact people are actually still questioning whether this is a piss take is actually kind of depressing. I saw one guy on Twitter losing his absolute shit at Drew Cordeiro booking himself into a match.

Still curious as to where this is all going and it's even weirder it's not on the IWTV live stream schedule yet.

I always figured the "network" was a streaming service anyway and there was no real TV. My guess is a new series on Fite, maybe seperate from Uncharted Territory.

But I don't get IWTV kayfabe potentially seizing control of the company yet not streaming this show on their service.

speaking as someone who probably posts the most match announcements, indies don't wait until a few days to announces matches. But unfortunately the scene is in a rebuilding phase and it doesn't help anyone to spam the front page with 10 danhausen graphics. trying to stagger the actually-interesting shows & matches from the places that are building a legit buzz.

Hope this Fite/IWTV closer relationship thing isn't just a ruse to drain more money out of people for the upper tier indie companies and their shows. Honestly, no one in the modern era should be asking $13 for one show.

Final 2 Wrestlecon Superhosw matches have been announced.

Reminder that the rest of the matches & wrestlers are a mystery until belltime.

In addition to these guys, the show is:
>Bandido vs Shingo
>Will Ospreay
>Amazing Red
>Alex Zayne & Blake Christian & Jordan Oliver
>???????
>??????

I went last year and even with PAC/ the DG talents getting fucked on visas, it was still a fantastic show. I marked the fuck out at the surprise of Jushin Liger teaming up with X Pac and the Hurricane,

In all honesty, WC probably puts on a more consistent weekend than GCW's The Collective (less shows, more marquee names)

WWE and NXT scalped the indies to a point where places like MLW, Impact and ROH have no choice but to sign their guys to exclusive contracts making the indies a dry waste land right now. It will slowly come back to life and then everyone will get scooped up and signed right away again.

WWE did this to the UK scene recently and now they are trying to get into Japan. Nowhere is safe from WWEs big waving shitty dick that signs up all the wrestlers in the world to do almost nothing and get almost no TV time. It's a retirement home and a containment company for wrestlers to not wrestle elsewhere and get over.

First off Orange Cassidy can wrestle and not just his AEW PPV match he just had. I mean the years he spent as Fire Ant as well as Orange Cassidy. OC and Marko Stunt are barely considered indie guys anymore anyways. They are on TNT every Wednesday and big PPVs in big arenas now.

Don't care if Cassidy can wrestle. He got popular because of the gimmick.
Now on the indies you can be another epic amazing wrestler which are almost a dime a dozen or use a gimmick to get yourself over

Yeah, but Gage isn't exactly Kenny Omega himself. He's another example where character and charisma matter more than workrate. You don't have to be a comedy guy to stand out, but you do have to have to have some sort of character. You can't just be firsty mclastname and rely on your technical chops anymore, there has to be personality. And Nick Gage fucking bleeds personality all over the mat.

A WrestleMania Coronavirus Shutdown Would Be a Catastrophe for Indie Wrestling
"I’m not kidding, if this is a full cancellation, I’ll likely sell my house,” one promoter said.
>World Wrestling Entertainment’s 36th annual WrestleMania, is, as of now, scheduled for April 5th at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Not only is it a massive event, but it’s a particularly international one.

>According to an economic impact report released by WWE, the fanbase descending on WrestleMania last year in the New York City metropolitan area came from all 50 states and 68 countries, with similar numbers the previous two years in New Orleans and Orlando. WrestleMania is more than a singular wrestling card; it also features multiple shoulder events like a weekend-long fan convention, a Hall of Fame induction ceremony, and three additional arena-sized in-ring wrestling events. WrestleMania weekend is also much more than WWE these days, with numerous unaffiliated independent promotions running shows, making it akin to pro wrestling’s version of South By Southwest. That event, of course, was cancelled by the city of Austin due to coronavirus concerns, leaving the organizers of the official event in a hole since their insurance doesn’t cover disease outbreaks.

>WWE, at least as of this writing, appears to be playing a game of chicken with the local government agencies in and around Tampa, with neither side willing to blink first. Answers were expected to come early Thursday afternoon at a public meeting of the Hillsborough County Emergency Policy Group, but they decided not to cancel anything after learning that WWE had deferred to them on the matter. In the grand scheme of things, WWE will be fine, regardless of what they do: They’re a big company, and even if they have to cancel events, whether part of the WrestleMania festivities or regular week-to-week TV tapings, they have spaces like the WWE Performance Center training facility in Orlando that can host scaled-down TV shows. That’s exactly what they’re doing for the next episode of their SmackDown broadcast, with only “essential personnel” present, in lieu of the originally scheduled arena-size event in Detroit.

>Where things get a lot more complicated and financially perilous is in the realm of independent wrestling. Every year since 2013, an increasing number of independent promoters have run shows in the WrestleMania host city designed to attract out-of-town fans. Some are run individually, and some as part of larger, multi-show hubs, but they’re part of the fabric of the weekend now, and cancelling them would be catastrophic for the independent scene. If you’re an independent wrestler, a spot on one of the bigger shows can be a massive showcase, leading to more fans buying merchandise and more bookings as the year goes on. For some wrestlers, the problem right now is much more acute: They’re able to bank a lot of bookings in a short period of time. Current WWE star Matt Riddle, for example, worked a whopping 11 matches in about two and a half days two years ago in New Orleans. At the upper tier of the independent scene, that amount of booking quickly adds up to a lot of money.

>Staten Island’s Chris Dickinson, who’s been wrestling for over a decade and has made a full-time living at it for the last four years, will be hit as hard as any wrestler would be with cancellations. Not only does he have nine matches booked WrestleMania weekend, but several of them were against prominent Japanese stars. If anyone was going to see their stock increase, it was him.
“This is unfortunately not only financially devastating, as it is the biggest wrestling week of the year, but it’s extremely demoralizing, especially for me,” he told VICE. “I had a lot riding on some of these matches and a lot of eyes on me. This is a time where I could really break through to the next level, and it’s all either going to be postponed or some of these opportunities may never present themselves again.”

>Dickinson places his potential losses in the thousands in booking fees alone. When you factor in not just the larger positive effects on his career but also merchandise sales, which tend to be particularly strong after the kind of showcase matches he’s booked in, the number increases significantly. Speaking more generally, Black Label Pro promoter Michael Blanton, who has two shows scheduled in Tampa, classified a cancellation to VICE as “an astronomical loss” for the wrestlers, comparing it to “a nine-to-fiver being cut from 40 hours to five.”
“This is the indie wrestler’s big bonus that they work all year for,” he added. “Taking this away would take away a huge portion of your yearly take.”

>The potential financial damage can be even bigger for promoters, especially those for whom the weekend is a major undertaking that, while normally lucrative, necessitates a massive financial outlay. One of the key players is New Jersey’s Game Changer Wrestling, which quickly carved out a space after its first ‘Mania weekend show, “Joey Janela’s Spring Break, became the viral hit of the 2017 festivities in Orlando. The following year in Orlando, the sequel drew the biggest independent crowd of the weekend, and last year they broke away from the hub of events hosted by WWN, a WWE affiliate, to start their own, The Collective, a showcase of events from strictly independent promotions. Aside from a few poorly-promoted non-GCW shows, it was a success, and this year, The Collective was booked to encompass a multi-stage venue, The Cuban Club, with some events even overlapping.

>Early Wednesday afternoon, before the world started to end, The Collective tweeted a statement pledging to move forward as planned regardless of what WWE were to decide. But a the other shoes started to drop and fans expressed more concern in the replies, Brett responded at 11:42 pm ET to ask for fans’ patience.
“The reality is that some things are out of our hands,” he said when reached by VICE. “All we can do is wish for the best. Regardless of Thursday's outcome, we will remain in close contact with our fans and do our best to create a positive outcome for everyone involved."

>The other big indie player is Highspots. Started by Michael Bochicchio in Charlotte, North Carolina as a company that sold Mexican luchador masks, Highspots now sells wrestling merchandise, in-ring gear for wrestlers, and wrestling rings for promoters, on top of doing wrestling-related video production. Every year, during WrestleMania weekend, they put on WrestleCon, the biggest wrestling autograph/meet-and-greet show of the year, along with associated wrestling cards. Their signature show is a reliable sellout every year, and they’re a big enough deal to be hosting shows from multiple major promotions this year, but the convention proper is the big draw. Even if someone’s not into indie wrestling, they may very well hit up the convention for autographs, photos, and nostalgia. But attracting those fans is a massive undertaking requiring big money to get big stars: The lineup in New Orleans, for example, included Steve Austin, with ticket packages for his session available to fans for $316.

>A couple of hours after announcing the full card for one of WrestleCon’s in-ring shows, as pressure mounted, Bochicchio tentatively laid out where things stood in a tweet: “Best guess is we either have our events in three weeks as planned or 2020 is cancelled (and refund tickets),” he wrote. “I don't see a scenario where we merely postpone.” A couple of hours after the Hillsborough County meeting, though, Bochicchio tweeted that he was going to wait on a formal WrestleMania decision before making any kind of move towards cancellation.

>Complicating all of this is that neither Lauderdale nor Bochicchio have cancellation insurance on their events, although, as SXSW showed, it probably wouldn’t help if they did. That doesn’t mean there aren’t levels to this: A government-mandated shutdown that would directly affect them—as opposed to WWE calling off WrestleMania and the other WWE events on their own—would at least trigger the force majeure provisions in contracts that allow for refunds to promoters. It wouldn’t be everything, but it would certainly be better for them than if they cancelled without “officially” being forced to. “Better” is relative here, though.
“I’m not kidding, if this is a full cancellation, I’ll likely sell my house,” Bochicchio told VICE. “You can put it on the record, it’s true.”

It's only 3% if you have decent healthcare. If we don't practice some big social distancing the virus will spread too quickly and overwhelm the hospitals. Italy is a good example of this.

Now im not super nazi about it like people on twitter/circlejerk who think literally everything should be canceled and you should only be allowed to open your door once a week for your shipment of MREs, but a gathering of thousands of people should be avoided.

There are people freaking out how UFC/WWE/AEW are "immoral monsters" for putting on shows at all because the skeleton crew and the wrestlers might be exposed. These same people probably ordered a pizza for tonight exposing themselves to the delivery guy and anyone he delivered too

Wait, so they're streaming old shows, or or are they doing all-new shows for the stream?

It says live stream so probably new. I don't think a rerun can be advertised as live.

Does Trent Acid's family get any money from this or is it another cynical "we're a wrestling family and we can make it together so BUY OUR SHIT" cash grab?

> It should be noted that there were far less people traveling to Tampa this year than at any WrestleMania in several years even before this happened. WrestleMania was still a few thousand tickets shy of being sold out with just weeks to go, but they were going to get close. The legitimate capacity for a sellout was 60,000, even though they were scripting the numbers 90,000 and 80,000 in recent interviews. Even in Santa Clara, where they fell 3,000 shy of a sellout, that was still just 67,000 in the building (59,000 paid). NXT was doing well but not sold out. Smackdown was doing okay. Raw and the Hall of Fame tickets were very disappointing. Very few of the other shows were doing well.

> Highspots owner/Wrestlecon promoter Mike Bochicchio told Wrestling Post: “With all the live events that happen, I don’t think there was going to be a lot of high rewards. Certainly the premiere events, the Joey Janela Spring Breaks, the Bloodsport, our Supershow, those things because we’ve been around a while. I’ll even say Ring of Honor even though I know their tickets were a little off. There’s events that are established and they have a following. Those I think were fine but all these other niche events, including many of ours. I forget the term that we use a lot of times with the stick shows that are just, the Joey Ryan Penis Party or the Ethan Page Body Guy Extravaganza - The ones that are kind of like a tongue-in-cheek show. Those were not doing great in Tampa and I think part of it is because of the over saturation of the live events that were there so, there’s not this great reward on a promoter end like you would think and where there is a great reward and this is who I feel the most pain for is the independent wrestlers. What they make in a given weekend down there is probably six months of regular bookings, and not only is it great for them financially but, people judge the matches that they have that weekend and I think there’s a lot of guys that really elevate their stature from that weekend alone, and it carries them further up the independent chain going forward and then probably putting eyeballs on them for these companies that are issuing these contracts that make life very comfortable.”

1.I hope people look at this as more evidence to the point of "where WWE goes, so goes the entire industry" When WWE is in a decline, it trickles down and causes a decline in a lot of other shows.

2.Had corona not happened, I bet this would have been the year of the indie weekend bubble finally bursting. there were already some cracks last year with stuff like IPW UK drawing 11 fans but I bet some heavily marketed high profile shows this year would also struggle to fill the househausen

Good luck to The Collective cuz I'm not sure people will be flying/booking a hotel to see Texas Forever and D Generation F.
