SoCal News & Notes 04/27/2017

This week’s news and notes has updates from Maverick pro, SoCal Pro, VWE, FCW, Cap’s Comicpalooza, PWG, Sabotage, SCWA, and more. Click for today’s update.

Moose will not currently be at the May 13th Maverick Pro show despite having been announced for the show. He was scheduled to face Kevin Kross.

Douglas James versus Martin Casaus (Marty “The Moth” Martinez from Lucha Underground) has been announced for the May 13th Maverick Pro show. Scorpio Sky has also been announced as making his Maverick Pro debut on that date.

Maverick Pro was upset that Championship Wrestling from Hollywood booked Brittany Blake for their April 23rd “Coastline Clash.” The reason it is an issue is because Maverick Pro booked her for their show the night before and covered the full cost of her travel to the area. Booking a wrestler that another promotion is flying in without covering a portion of the travel is considered bad form.

Tommy Wilson is currently rehabbing a shoulder injury and likely won’t be wrestling again until after the summer.

The SoCal Pro heavyweight championship is scheduled to be defended at Venue Wrestling Entertainment’sVenue Mania” on June 2nd in Imperial. Anthony Idol will be defending the title against PBR’s Hunter Freeman.

A triple-threat between Chris Kadillak, Biagio Crescenzo, and  Douglas James has been added to June 17th’s Cap’s Comicpalooza in Riverside.

Sabotage plans on making their Southern California return in early August. A location hasn’t been finalized yet.

We are looking for someone who will be attending the Sabotage show in Austin, TX on May 13th to do a writeup for the site. If you are interested please contact me.

Despite advertising tickets as costing $15.00 for front row and $10.00 for general admission, and listing those prices on their flyers for their April 30th show, SCWA has now updated their flyers to $15.00 for presale, and $20.00 for general admission.
