SoCal News & Notes 11/09/2016

Providing the world hasn’t been destroyed and we are all living in some wasteland hoping to ride eternal, shiny and chrome, here are news and notes from around Southern California and beyond. Including UEW, PCW, FCW, Sabotage, WOW, AWS, and more. Click for the update.

UEW has announced the first 7 entrants in their annual West Coast Cruiser Cup tournament. So far “Miracle” Mike James, Rudy Rodriguez, “Jungle Boy” Nate Coy, Jake Atlas, Koto Hiro, Darwin Finch, and G.C. Bahyl have been announced. There is still one more entrant to be named. The tournament will be taking place at the UEW Arena in Los Angeles on November 20th at 1:00 pm. After the tournament they will have a viewing party for Survivor Series.

PCW’s one year anniversary show will be held on January 20th and be called “Fantasm.” Tickets will go on sale November 14th. They will be announcing the venue at their November 12th show.

Updating our story from a few weeks ago on the 10 News San Diego story where they profiled a Poway High School football player, Peter Neil, who claimed to have trained to be a wrestler at SoCal Pro’s school, 10 News has issued a formal apology to SoCal Pro and admitted on the air the story was incorrect. 10 News claims they were misled by the player, his mother, and the head coach of the football program.

FCW had to change their scheduled death match main event between Team FCW and Team Revelation after the venue balked at having a death match. The match is now a no-DQ match with restrictions set by the venue and Douglas James’ first title defense against Lil’ Cholo is the main event.
