This Friday is the second anniversary of NOVA Pro Wrestling, and the big show rings in the beginning of year three of the promotion. Here’s the full card and a few of my thoughts on what I expect.
NOVA Pro Wrestling presents “NOVA Project 3”
Friday September 22nd, 2017 – Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
Who is the Franchise?
“Ace” Arik Royal vs Logan Easton LaRoux
Royal has only lost one singles match out of thirteen in NOVA, and it was to Logan in the Commonwealth Cup finals after wrestling two matches already that night. Ace is going to try and Pounce his way to victory but LaRoux is untouchable on top here, so it could go either way. Logan’s never come close to getting what he deserves and hasn’t even been meaningfully defeated in NOVA since February. Maybe they can let him be on top this whole year and make a really long build out of somebody finally punishing him. Neither Sonjay nor Chet were able to do that in their feuds.
Last Man Standing
Beau Crockett vs Innocent Isaiah
The Cutie and the Beast explosion continues. This one might be the blow-off match, but we’ll see.
Angelus Layne vs Mia Yim
I don’t feel like Angelus has any chance against returning hometown Mae Young Classic hero Mia, but the match should be good. I don’t know, maybe Angelus has a chance to win but it could just as easily move towards a “Keith Lee destroyed her” story.
The Ugly Ducklings vs The Carnies (Nick/Kerry)
Two of the hottest acts in the promotion collide. I think I’m looking forward to this most of all.
John Kermon vs “Safety First” Tim Donst
Looks like the “Safety First” gimmick is official, which is a bit much for me but I guess you can never escape insufferable indy wrestling crowds.
Curt Stallion vs Sonjay Dutt
Excited to see Curt for the first time.
Chet Sterling & “The Progressive Liberal” Dan Richards vs Bobby Shields & Alexander James
Richards clearly sold some tickets last time so they’re not wrong in bringing him back, but all 3 of the other guys are a higher level of worker than him here. Shields and James are in the “One Percent” stable lead by LaRoux, so that will be the story.
Jordynne Grace vs Allie Kat
Fan favorite (and my favorite) Allie Kat is back again to battle Jordynne Grace. This one should be good.
Dominic Garrini vs Chip Day
Chip had an MMA vs Wrestling match against John Kermon last month and I guess they liked it enough to book it again. Kermon/Day wasn’t my favorite of the MMA vs Wrestling matches they’ve had in NOVA, so we’ll see about this one.
