On Saturday, September 12th Warrior Wrestling is hosting the first night of a three-night Stadium series. The night will be headlined by a match for the Warrior Wrestling Women’s Championship. Chicago’s own Kylie Rae will take on Champion Tessa Blanchard. Tickets are still available to cheer on our hometown girl and most likable person wrestling against one of the best wrestlers in the world. Here is your Warrior Wrestling Stadium Series Night 1 preview.
– Warrior Wrestling Women’s Championship- Kylie Rae vs Tessa Blanchard
Calling Kylie Rae a hometown girl is an understatement because of her extensive ties to Chicago. The IMPACT star went to school here, is involved in many of the area’s independents, and also worked at local Pro Wrestling Tees. Rae’s career has been a whirlwind journey because of the highs and lows she has faced. She has overcome both mental and physical struggles. Hence, her perseverance has made her a better wrestler today. Her multi-promotion journey has somehow made her even more likable and relatable.
Tessa Blanchard is world-renowned as one of the best wrestlers today and possibly the hottest free agent in the business. She has a prestigious wrestling pedigree and unprecedented success to match. Blanchard is often overconfident because she has the right to be. Tessa hasn’t wrestled since March, hence this is a rare opportunity to see her this year.
The two have faced each other in singles action three times, with Tessa holding a 2-1 lead. Will this be just another notch in Tessa Blanchard’s belt or will it be the culmination of Kylie Rae’s inspiring journey? “What will shine brighter? A diamond or a smile?”
– Alex Shelley vs TJP
This match could easily steal the show because of the wrestling experience involved. Shelly is one half of the legendary The Motor City Machine Guns, who are current Impact World Tag Team Champions. TJP has been everywhere but is currently being heavily featured on NJPW STRONG.
– Brian Cage vs Alex Zayne
Chicago fans have been lucky because Brian Cage has been a Warrior Wrestling staple. The current FTW Champion will try to continue his Warrior Wrestling hot streak against the high flyer and taco enthusiast, Alex Zayne.
– The Rascalz vs Myron Reed, Chris Bey, and Jordan Oliver
IMPACT stars, The Rascalz, were impressive in their last Warrior appearance. Myron Reed is no stranger to the Chicago scene and the current MLW World Middleweight Champion. Chris Bey is a former IMPACT X Division Champion. Jordan Oliver is willing to risk it all because he’s “young, dumb, and broke”. Therefore, I expect this to be the wrestling equivalent of a firework show.
– #1 contender match- Joey Janela faces WARHORSE
– Dan the Dad vs Elayna Black
– Filthy Tom Lawler vs Keven Ku
– Isaias Velazquez vs Daga
IMPACT star Daga is also the current AAA Latin American Champion. Isaias Velazquez will be trying to live up to his reputation of being the ace of local promotion Freelance wrestling.
– THUNDER ROSA vs Kimber Lee
Its obvious Warrior was trying to kick the Stadium Series off with a bang because this stacked card has two world-class women’s matches. Kimber Lee is the current Shimmer Champion She has wrestled everywhere but recently signed with IMPACT. NWA Champion, THUNDER ROSA, is on the precipice of becoming wrestling’s most impressive double champ as she quests for the AEW women championship also.
The Stadium series takes place at Marian Catholic High School in Chicago Heights, IL. The bell time is 7:00pm and doors open at 6:30pm. Bring masks because social distancing guidelines will be followed. Tickets are still available here.
