Preview of AML Wrestling Presents Mass Hysteria
Family-friendly pro wrestling debuts in Clemmons, NC featuring Tommy Dreamer & the Stars of AML Wrestling.
Cedric Alexander vs Shane Strickland
To say Cedric Alexander's star is on the rise is an understatement. The man who calls himself "The Best in the World" earned a golden opportunity to prove it, as he recently competed in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic. In June, Alexander (with manager Tommy Thomas) won the AML Prestige Championship tournament. At Mass Hysteria, he will defend that title against Lucha Underground competitor Shane Strickland. Strickland, known as Killshot in Lucha Underground, is a high flyer with a daredevil streak. He is arguably even quicker than his opponent. Alexander boasts a considerable size advantage (Strickland is 5-9 and will weigh in at around 170 pounds), but if Strickland can keep the pace fast & keep the champion in space, anything is possible. As always, Tommy Thomas's presence at ringside will loom large & could swing the battle one way or the other.
Zane Dawson vs Damien Wayne vs Tommy Dreamer
Two of the most violent men in the sport will be forced to go "extreme" on July 31 when Damien Wayne & Zane Dawson are joined by former ECW Champion Tommy Dreamer in a triple threat No DQ match. Dawson & Wayne have been feuding for months, with Dawson winning tainted victories involving the interference of Dawson's mentor George South that have sent the newly dubbed "The Unpredictable One" over the edge. The violence has escalated & so has the rhetoric. George South expressed on AML television recently that he no longer can control the "One-Man Riot", while Wayne has promised revenge, requesting that AML beef up its security, as it is unlikely that the Old Clemmons School gym can contain the battle. Throw in the Innovator of Violence Tommy Dreamer into the mix is akin to throwing a powder keg into a bonfire. Will Damien Wayne finally overcome the numbers game & defeat Dawson? Will Dawson win & put himself right back into the AML title picture? Or will the ECW Original emerge victorious? We will find out July 31.
The Heatseekers vs Geordie Bulldogs
The HeatSeekers' (Sigmon and Elliot Russell) stranglehold on the AML Wrestling Tag Team Championship will be challenged July 31 when they finally face the Geordie Bulldogs (Sean Denny and Mark Denny) for the titles in Clemmons. Both Denny brothers have been hospitalized after attacks by the HeatSeekers;
Caleb Konley vs Kevin Kross
Caleb Konley will be facing one of the toughest matches of his career when he faces "The Tollman" Kevin Kross in Kross's AML debut. Konley is well known to AML fans as one of the most versatile wrestlers in the region. In Kross, Konley will be facing a physically imposing force (6-4, 270 lbs) with a reputation for injuring his opponents. Konley will have to adjust his style, but so will Kross, as the quicker Konley is likely to try to keep the bigger man in space. This represents a unique challenge for both men.
Caprice Coleman vs Jordan Kage
Two men who last faced off in the finale of the AML Prestige Championship Tournament will face off one on one July 31. Former AML Wrestling Champion Caprice Coleman will collide with the man who calls himself "Picture Perfect," Jordan Kage. Coleman was able to get the best of Kage during the Prestige tournament & both men want another title shot. Coleman will rely on his high flying ability & his mat wrestling, while Kage will want to turn this into a fight. Whoever wins this match will likely lay claim to another Prestige title chance.
The Dixon Line vs Team Axcellence
The AML Tag Team division will show some of its depth July 31 when The Dixon Line (Ken Dixon and Joe Keys) battle Team Axcellence (Axton Ray and Brandon Scott) in a match that will likely see the winner challenge for AML Tag Title gold. Ken Dixon is coming off an impressive victory over "Brutal" Bob Evans in High Point, while partner Joe Keys wrestled in a losing effort in the Prestige tournament (along with Ray and Scott). Both teams want to be in the title picture, but they have to face each other at Mass Hysteria.
Raphael King vs Joe Black
Both King & Black had impressive showings in the Prestige Championship Tournament. The winner of this match could prevail as a favorite to challenge for the Prestige Championship.
