Ronin Pro Wrestling’s first show of 2016 emanates once again from the Broward College South Campus Gymnasium in Pembroke Pines Saturday night, January 30. The bell time is 7:30 p.m., but the doors will open at 5 p.m. where you meet some of the wrestler and watch some pre-match bouts. This card will feature some Ronin debuts, Ronin returns and veterans who well-known in the world of professional wrestling.
Aaron Epic, Dezmond Xavier, Johnny Knockout and Kiko Harris will be making their Ronin debut in a “New Year’s New Comers” Fatal Four Way match. This opportunity will give these competitors the chance to not only show the fans their in-ring skills, but also prove to the rest of the locker room that they got what it takes to make it in Ronin. Harris and Xavier have been trying a make a name for themselves in other pro wrestling organizations with Harris coming from Enigma Pro Wrestling and Xavier hailing from CZW. Epic and Knockout are well-known in the Central Florida regions as they have competed for organizations like American Combat Wrestling (ACW) in New Port Richey and Florida Underground Wrestling (FUW) in Brandon.
Coming off what could be considered a controversial win at Ronin 8 against Leva Bates, South Florida’s own Angel Rose will go up against Kennadi Brink. Brink have wrestled for a variety of pro wrestling organizations from Pro Wrestling Syndicate (PWS) to Maryland Championship Wrestling (MCW).
Aaron Solo and Teddy Stigma make their return to Ronin for the first time since Ronin 7 in July as take on one another in a singles bout. Both men found themselves racking up a loss in their respective summer match-ups in their summer match-ups. Which of these Ronin competitors will walk away with the win on a Saturday night?
Ronin fan favorite “The Hashtag Warrior” Edward Malken will take on one of Ronin’s toughest competitors in “The Guvonor” Martin Stone. Malken’s last singles outing did not fare well for him as he lost to Maxwell Chicago at Ronin 7. Stone was also not successful in last bout when lost to the high-flying Lince Dorado. Both men have their own unique style of offense and they put those maneuvers to use when they battle at the BC South Campus Gymnasium.
Ever since arriving in Ronin back at Ronin 6 in May, Maxwell Chicago has been entertaining the Ronin crowd with his over the top personality and bizarre set of maneuver. This time around, Chicago will be putting his Full Impact Pro (FIP) Florida Heritage Championship (which he has held for nearly a year) when he faces “Tenacious” Gabriel Black at Ronin 9. Chicago has defended the title against the likes of Lince Dorado, Martin Stone and Aaron Epic, but will he be successful against Black, who have done considerable well in Ronin after teaming with Aron Agony to form “The Legion of Wolves”? This will also be Black’s first singles match in Ronin as he looks to start the new year with a bang and possibly some gold.
Alex Chamberlain has certainly made a name for himself since arriving in Ronin with an impressive win-loss record of 6-1. His only loss came when he was failed to capture the Ronin Heavyweight Championship during a fatal four-way match at Ronin 7. Chamberlain will be facing his toughest opponent to date: Trent(?). Trent has competed for the best promotions in the world from New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor to Pro Wrestling Guerilla, Evolve and World Wrestling Entertainment. He has found his latest success by teaming with Rocky Romero to form Roppongi Vice where they have captured IWGP Junior Tag Team Championship in NJPW. Will Trent stop Chamberlain’s momentum in Ronin or will Chamberlain get the win any way he can?
The war between TECH and Lucha World Order dates back in Ronin 2 in November 2014 when TC Read and Mike Monroe, along with their manager Jim Sherbert, beat Cruz and Rios. Since then, both team have traded victories with one another. The last time they squared off, Monroe scored the pinfall after Rios failed to nail him with a 450 Splash in three-way tag match that included “The Legion of Wolves.” At Ronin 9, Cruz and Rios teams up with luchadore brother-in-arms Lince Dorado to go up against TECH and their partner, “The Kentucky Gentleman” Chuck Taylor. Taylor is well renowned professional wrestler who have held many championships, along with making his way through the independent wrestling circuit by working for organizations like Chikara, IWA-MS and PWG. Will Taylor be TECH’s secret weapon to put away the LWO once and for all or will LWO reign supreme in the end?
