Big Time Wrestling Sept 17 2016 Washington NJIt’s been a year since I last wrestled at Big Time Wrestling, where I battled The Honky Tonk Man and The Patriot in tag team action with Earl Cooter as my partner. This is the first time I’ll be in New Jersey under the BTW banner.

The event takes place at the Washington Township in Bergen County, New Jersey at the Westwood Regional High School (23 3rd Avenue in Westwood NJ according to Google Maps). A meet and greet starts at 5:30 and the first match begins at 7:30.

Appearing at the event will be WWE Hall of Famer Sting who recently retired from the ring. In action will be:

  • The Nasty Boys, former WWE Tag Team Champions
  • The Patriot, my most frequent opponent
  • WWE sensation James Ellsworth

Upcoming Event: Second Annual NJ Taco Festival on Friday September 9

2nd Annual NJ Taco FestivalLast year, I wrestled at the inaugural NJ Taco Festival at the Sussex County Fairgrounds (37 Plains Road) in Augusta, New Jersey. The 2nd Annual NJ Taco Festival will be 2 days long on Friday September 9 and Saturday September 10.

It will be Chris Avery Queling vs Dave D-Struction on Saturday 9/10, but Friday the 9th will be a group of lucha wrestling events during the festival from 10 am to 8 pm. The matches are unknown at present time, but there will be members of the WrestlePro roster present and in action.

Last year’s event was one day with 2 events and a rain out cancelled the second card including a dream match between The Revolting Blob and The Scranton Strangler. The weather this year looks to be nice and sunny.

In addition to tacos on food trucks, there will also be beer, tequila, mariachi, contests and more on both days. I guess Friday’s event I’ll be a part of in some capacity will be WrestlePro #7a and Saturday’s will be WrestlePro #7b.

The main event of the evening will be a match from the list Cody Rhodes tweeted out of wrestlers who he wanted to face… one of whom is WrestlePro owner Pat Buck and that match should be exciting as both have something to prove to the audience. Another dream match happening at WreslePro #8 will be a match between TNA’s Grado and The Abominable CPA that should be a fun one between 2 very different characters.

The WrestlePro Championship will be on the line as champion Anthony Bowens will battle challenger and former Untouchables teammate Bobby Wayward in what has the potential to be the match of the night. Speaking of championships, WrestlePro is introducing the Trios-Pro Championship where the 3-person tag team will get medallions and the first qualifying match to win the medals will be a rematch between The Aesthetic Males and Team Espanakos.
