IWF Heavyweight Title Match - Bayonne Brawl:
Heartless Hellraiser Dracko
(IWF Heavyweight Champion)
Manos de Plata Juan Hernandez
Preview: The brawler from Bayonne, Heartless Hellraiser Dracko, returns to the ring for the first time time in a year after successfully defeating cancer. Not one to back down from a fight, Manos de Plata Juan Hernandez is already the number one contender for the IWF American Title at FIREPOWER on December 27. In this Bayonne Brawl, all Hernandez has to do is take IWF Heavyweight Champion Dracko, a former semi-pro football player and powerlifter, off his feet and down to the mat to win. Will Christmas come early for the youngster from Guanajuato, Mexico, as he looks to make the most of this opportunity and upset the Heavyweight Champion on The East Side Dave Show?
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2020:
#1 Contender's Bout for IWF Heavyweight Title Match at FIREPOWER:
Master of Chaos Kevin Knight
The Standard-Bearer Chris Steeler
Preview: In this battle between former IWF Heavyweight, American and Tag Team Champions, Master of Chaos Kevin Knight tangles with The Standard-Bearer Chris Steeler. Steeler is also a former Junior Heavyweight Champion, making him the only Grand Slam Winner in IWF history, holding all four men's championships. The winner of this contest on The East Side Dave Show will become the number one contender for the IWF Heavyweight Title at FIREPOWER on December 27.
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2020:
Dark Oracle Sage
Carnov (w/ Camryn)
Preview: Former IWF American Champion Dark Oracle Sage looks to cloak the mysterious masked man Carnov in a sea darkness when they collide on The East Side Dave Show. Sages' origins are unknown, while Carnov makes his way to the IWF from The Republic of Belarus in Eastern Europe. Sage better beware, as Carnov's conniving valet Camryn will be lurking at ringside supporting her man, perhaps waiting for her opportunity to strike.
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2020:
Dark Dragon Kareem West
First-Class Justin Adams
(IWF American Champion)
Preview: In their first-ever meeting, two-time IWF American Champion First-Class Justin Adams squares off against former American Champion Dark Dragon Kareem West in a non-title match. With Adams already set to defend his title at FIREPOWER on December 27, he faces a fiery test against West, a sixth-degree blackbelt. Even though the title is not on the line, a win for West on The East Side Dave Show could launch him into the title picture, while a loss for Adams could deflate his ego heading into FIREPOWER.
Referees: Kyle DeFalco, Glenn Burgess, Carliq Reed
Card subject to change.
