*The Following Press Release Was Issued By IWTV*

UNCHARTED TERRITORY FEATURES BIG DEBUTS, RETURNS AND THOMAS SANTELL AND NICK GAGE TEAMING FOR THE FIRST TIME

Episode Fifteen of Beyond Wrestling‘s weekly series Uncharted Territory streams live on IWTV.LIVE TONIGHT (7/10) at 8pm EDT. This week’s show includes multiple former Discovery Gauntlet entrants returning, as well as several major debuts. In addition to the in ring action, Beyond has announced that another Americanrana 19 match will be announced live on the broadcast. Let’s take a look at what we know so far.

  • Two weeks ago Thomas Santell saved Nick Gage from an attack at the hands of Richard Holliday and Kenn Doane. Last week Gage returned the favor, coming to Santell’s aid and thwarting the assault of Cam Zagami, Richard Holliday and Christian Casanova. This week Santell and Gage team up for the first time ever!
  • Impact Wrestling star and Freelance Wrestling World Champion “All Ego” Ethan Page makes his Uncharted Territory debut against one of Beyond Wrestling’s top talents Josh Briggs.
  • Kris Statlander has struggled to get back to her winning ways since losing the IWTV Championship back to Orange Cassidy in June. TONIGHT she addresses her future in Beyond Wrestling.
  • Since coming back to Beyond Wrestling Chuck O’Neil has spent the bulk of his time blindsiding and bullying people with impunity. But in recent weeks Wheeler YUTA has put a stop to this and has been the one man who seems to be able to block O’Neil’s technically precise and dangerous armbar. This week both of them will be in singles action taking on former Discovery Gauntlet entrants as O’Neil battles fan favorite “Big Bacon” Brad Hollister, while YUTA takes on the impressive DL Hurst.
  • Speaking of The Discovery Gauntlet, Christian Casanova is back for the fourth straight week. Will he be able to make it five, or will a new competitor enter the fray, pick up the win and move on?
  • Bear Country have been on a rampage since making their Beyond debuts back at Uncharted Territory, Episode Five. TONIGHT they face off against the debuting tandem of Jimmy Lloyd and KTB in a match that is sure to be a fight.

Both Janela and Briggs are gearing up for huge matches at Beyond Wrestling’s Americanrana 19, with Janela scheduled to compete against career rival David Starr in a 60-minute Iron Man Match and Briggs set to compete against Johnny Foxwoods (John Morrison) who he called out at the conclusion of Uncharted Territory, Episode Thirteen.

Anthony Greene is back in the swing of things with the RETRObution tour and will be celebrating Independence Day a day early by taking on The Patriot!

Bear Country defeated Team Tremendous on Episode Twelve but were ambushed by Carr and Barry after the bout.  This week the bears return to Uncharted Territory angry as they take on the debuting Stunt Doubles (Marko and Logan Stunt).  

On Episode Twelve, Thomas Santell’s incredible run in The Discovery Gauntlet came to an end as a result of interference from then ringside correspondent Cam Zagami. Santell gets his chance for revenge TONIGHT!

Speaking of The Discovery Gauntlet, Christian Casanova returns on Episode Fourteen for the third time and will take on another wrestler looking to get to the next level.

First Look: The NEW IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship pays tribute to Promotions that host Defenses

*The Following Press Release Was Issued By IWTV*

 

In a relatively brief amount of time, the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship has emerged as a unifying force on the indie wrestling scene. Though the championship has only been around for a year and a half, in that time it has been defended 37 times in 15 promotions, in 13 different states, against dozens of different opponents.

Three wrestlers have held the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship:

  1. Jonathan Gresham: 126 Days, 7 Defenses
  2. Tracy Williams: 309 Days, 17 Defenses
  3. Orange Cassidy: Current Champion, 13 Defenses

All of them have been excellent representatives of independent wrestling and their combined efforts have served to make the IWTV Championship what it is today.

Recently IWTV debuted a new title design for the Independent Wrestling Championship. This new design honors and reflects the history of the championship, as promotions that have hosted championship defenses are featured on plates affixed to the title. New plates will continue to be added as defenses are made in new places, making the championship an evolving monument to its own history.
