From The Desk Of Action Unlimited CEO Ted Garvin
This comes directly from an email sent to us by Action Unlimited CEO Ted Garvin.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our wonderful fans who came out and supported a good cause on January 10th. Not only were we able to raise a great deal of money for the Christopher Krout family, but also for the local Cub Scout troop who handled the concessions. Everyone who was involved, most especially the fans, deserve a big thank you.
On February 25th, we return to action right here in the Wyoming Valley with our third showcase: "Action Unlimited III: Indestructible". At this particular showcase, you will see our new Anthracite Champion "Indestructible" A.J. Evers as he defends his title against number one challenger Bruno "War Machine" DeMaio in AJ's first title defense since winning the championship. Action Unlimited does recognize Mike "The Cannon" Collis as the number one challenger to whomever wins in this main event matchup.
On that note, I would like to take this opportunity to announce a few more match-ups we will be presenting on February 25. Action Unlimited does have new Tag-Team Champions, The Westies, "Banger" Ritch Howe and Head The Ice Crusher. Now, regardless of how the actual ending of the match went down, Action Unlimited has no choice but to respect the referee's final decision and recognize The Westies as our Tag-Team Champions. However, I am well aware of the fact that a steel chair was involved. I am also aware of Mike Collis' request that, after the brutal beating he himself took with a steel chair at the hands of the same perpetrators, he be given an opportunity to face The Westies under any conditions.
With these circumstances in mind, I am announcing that on February 25th, The Westies will defend their new Action Unlimited Tag-Team Championship against "The Cannon" Mike Collis and Ryan "Acid" Zero in a No Disqualifications Match. I have spoken with Ryan Zero's tag team partner, Mike Vaughn, about the situation, and he was very happy to give Collis an opportunity to avenge his attack. Mike Vaughn will be in action as well on that night, and we will announce his opponent soon.
We have several new acquisitions to Action Unlimited in the past week, and we will have them in competition on February 25th. Action Unlimited Anthracite Wrestling will strive to bring you fresh faces and new styles in the upcoming year, and the vast array of talents possessed by our new arrivals is second to none. We are in for a very exciting showcase at "Unbreakable" to say the least.
At our last event there apparently was a gentleman whom, to my understanding, purchased a ticket, then ran into the ring and punched "Banger" Ritch Howe squarely in the jaw. Now let me make this crystal clear to everyone reading : Fans rushing the ring will NOT BE TOLERATED in Action Unlimited. This individual is very lucky that he was recognized by several wrestlers at the show, or serious criminal charges would have been filed. I can assure everyone reading that, with God as my witness, if and when such events transpire again...wrestler or not...whomever rushes the ring will spend a night in jail.
As I was leaving the Wright Township Firehall that night, I had an opportunity to speak with this individual. What I learned was that this man was not just a random fan looking to start trouble, but a very accomplished wrestler with a legitimate ax to grind with a member of our talent staff. Good wrestling, in my opinion, is born of situations like this one. I have done a great deal of thinking on the matter, but as of now I am pleased to announce that NEPA Pro Wrestling Standout Vin Gerard will be featured on our upcoming showcase February 25.
With such a wealth of experience and ability, I feel it only right that as Vin Gerard's first match in Action Unlimited, I present a match that many fans have asked for. In his debut Vin Gerard will face Matt Turner One-On-One for the first time anywhere. I am absolutely sure this match will tear the house down, and is yet another reason to get your tickets to "Action Unlimited 3: Unbreakable" as soon as possible.
Doshu Sappo and his protege "The Butcher Of Giza" Khufu have made agreements this week. Rather, Doshu Sappo made agreements for both he and his "client". At no point in our conversations did Khufu speak to anyone other than Doshu, although Khufu was not unruly or threatening at all towards me. He did speak a language that I am not familiar with, but Doshu was able to help us through a few points of interest. They are both exceptionally talented and a huge positive addition to our roster. I have every reason to believe that Khufu's official debut will be on February 25 at "Unbreakable", and as soon as I have that confirmed, I will make sure it is announced.
Again, thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I say this time and again...Action Unlimited Anthracite Wrestling is the Number 1 Pro Wrestling promotion in all of NEPA, and we have our wonderful fans to thank for it. It is you who keep us going strong and making a difference, and we will never ever forget it.
Until next time, take care and be safe. Much happiness to all,
Ted Garvin, Action Unlimited CEO
