Issue 28 – Peace on Earth
1) Tatu vs. Dean Caufield vs. Viper ‘Lightning’ Tion: Quick three-way to open. Tion was the most impressive although Tatu hit some good power spots on both men. Tion won with a SSP.
2) Xander Reeves vs. Kazumi Tsukuda: These two 17 year olds debuted earlier this year and have been stuck in squash matches ever since. This was their first showing of what they can do. Although the match was short these two really impressed, it was clear that the match was well rehearsed but still enjoyable. Reeves won with a running Knee Strike.
3) Gertrude Von Grimm vs. Penelope Periwinkle: Basic squash, Grimm rolled over the 20 year old billed from “the Enchanted Forest". The DVD gave the dominant German the win.
4) Parkland Bros (Axel and Rex Parkland) vs. Elliot Reid and Noah Lee: Fun tag match which was given plenty of time. The crowd lost interest a bit in the middle but they were brought back for the last section. Lee and Reid play good cocky heels but it seems SNW doesn’t believe in them. This was shown by the Parkland’s surprising victory which they did with the Pin Pointer.
5) Kourtney Love vs. Tickles the Clown vs. Zelda Williams: This was more fun than it really should be. The action was fast and there was plenty of good spots including a sick tower of doom top rope rana. Tickles lost the colours and was more a dark creepy clown which got a better reaction. Love won with the Lovesault on Williams.
6) Michael Stone vs. Liam Hendrick: This was a rematch from Issue 27 where Hendrick outsmarted the talented youngster but slapped him post-match. Stone showed a fire in this one attacking from the bell. He didn’t do his usual technical moveset and the crowd were strongly behind him. Hendrick got the knees up to a moonsault but Stone still hit the Cam Slam to take the win.
Intermission. Petey the Pirate came out to hand out presents, he was interrupted at the end of intermission by El Alboroto who smashed a box over Petey’s head. Cody Rejero ran out for the save.
7) El Alboroto vs. Cody Rejero: In storyline terms, Rejero was the man who gave Alboroto his first defeat. Alboroto then attacked Cody and kept him out of Synergy. These two started with a crowd brawl before ending up in the ring to begin the match. This was excellent for Alboroto to learn from an experienced hand. Alborto nearly won with a piledriver on a Xmas present but Rejero hit the Pepsi Driver on the present to win.
8) New Age Lady Killers (Daniel Sinn and Drew Parkland) vs. Lord Jamerson and Joseph Stone: Despite having split years ago, the Lady Killers are still mega popular. They had to battle youth in the form of Jamerson and Stone. Daddy Parkland was beaten down for most the match. Cameron Stone even showed up to stop Parkland from making the tag. Two of Drew’s sons, Axel and Rex then showed up to dive on Cameron allowing Drew to get the hot tag. Sinn came in like a house on fire and they looked to win with the Pin Pointer but Jamerson countered and took out Drew with the Chaos Theory.
9) SYN: Duke Parkland vs. Ken Slayer: This is what Synergy is all about, young talent who don’t get the chance to shine in SNW. These two second generational wrestlers put on a great match that went 21 minutes. They brought a bit of everything from technical, brawling and high spots. A table was even brought into play and Slayer hit the Sling Blade off the apron through the table. Unluckily for Slayer by the time he got the champion in the ring, Parkland had recovered and kicked out. Slayer hit a second Sling Blade but the referee took a bump in the lead up to the move. Slayer was frustrated and checked on the referee, Parkland recovered and helped but Slayer then hit a low blow and a third Sling Blade. Slayer pinned Duke and the referee made the count. It’s a new Champion for Christmas. (Note, Slayer turned heel in Synergy but this does not affect his character in SNW).
Editor note: This is probably the last Synergy show I'm writing up. I got no desire to keep booking Synergy on top of SNW and Alt:Pro so I'm cutting it. It will still go on in continuity and I may reference it a bit but I'm not booking the shows anymore. Obviously I'll keep doing SNW and Alt:Pro but I'm also cutting down on the write up of SNW shows. Making it to 90 pages is incredible, I never thought I'd get this far when I started this in 2008. The only way to keep this going is to cut down on the write ups, so that's what I'll be doing.
Sign up's are always open, check the first page and message me with your character if you want them included (male or female) that goes for people with multiple characters too. Cheers for reading, as ever, thanks for your support.

Alt:Pro Presents Insurgence
The new Alt:Pro Heavyweight Champion, Mike Hogan opened the show, he cracked a few jokes before being interrupted by the Fire and the Fury. Fury moaned that Hogan won unfairly. Hogan was happy to give Fury a rematch tonight but Fury said he would challenge on his own terms. Arsenic then said he would challenge straight away. The match got to about 7 minutes then when Hogan went for the Futurism and Fury caused a DQ. Twisted Assassin then ran out followed by Patrick R Everson and AJ Matthews for a six person brawl. The faces got the advantage and Hogan said that they will have a six-man tag tonight.
The former rivals turned partners of Swindell and Crockett continued their streak as a team by defeating the Taylor Boys which now makes them a threat to the titles. Jax Anderson issued another open challenge, this time met by Kyo Ichiban. Jax won and called out AJ Matthews to accept his challenge at the next show. The Blaze Brothers continued to show their heel tendencies by defeating Benitez and Gonzalez. Moses Khan then struggled but eventually defeated upstart Will Manor.
Kris Havok must have a death wish because after weeks of getting destroyed by Alexander Kuleshov he challenged him to a No Rules match. The match went onto the crowd and Havok was punished badly. He never said die but eventually got put to rest with a chokebomb from the ring to the outside through a stack of two tables. Not content with causing pain to one man, Kuleshov then helped out his new buddies Williams and Wiseman when they got into trouble against the tag champions. Kuleshov caused the DQ and left the champions down as Williams and Wiseman posed with the belts. After a string of impressive showings, Winston Knight was offered a rematch for the Junior title. He put it all on the line again but came short to Warron and his fierce DeathStrike. In the main event the new Heavyweight Champion led his team to victory in six-man tag team action. Assassin and Arsenic battled to the back which allowed the Champ to hit an impressive Futurism on Everson to get the pin.
QUICK RESULTS: 1) WORLD: Mike Hogan def. Johnny Arsenic by DQ 2) Jake Swindell and Ron Crockett def. The Fabulous Taylor Boys (Robin and Ozzy Taylor) 3) Jak Anderson def. Kyo Ichiban 4) Blaze Brothers (Max and Lloyd Blaze) def. Antonio Benitez and Pablo 'Speedy' Gonzalez 5) Moses Khan def. Will Manor 6) No Rules: Alexandre Kuleshov def. Kris Havok 7) TAG: Made in Detroit (Tobias Black and Nate Ryan) def. Arthur Williams and Rory Wiseman by DQ 8) JNR: Dane Warron def.

NEWS- SNW Announces Riot Act XII Weekend
SNW announced that their biggest show of the year is about to get a whole lot bigger. Riot Act XII will be held in Las Vegas but will be the headline of a weekend full of wrestling events.
The wrestling weekend will kick off in the day on Friday with the return of Cerberus Wrestling for a special ‘one off’ show, The company previously known as Premier Wrestling, closed five years ago. SNW helped finance a deal to bring back the promotion under the Cerberus Wrestling name but no events ever took place. The company included big names such as Mike Bockwinkel, Red Dragon and Justin Tyger but also gave first starts to some of the top names on the indies such as Calvin Little Jr, Adam King and Dante Randall who was the first and only champion. Since SNW own the rights to Cerberus Wrestling, they will be hosting a special one off show which will give the promotion a proper send off.
On the Friday Night, SNW’s development brand, Synergy will host a show with the top young talents looking to make a name for themselves. Saturday will kick off with the friends from NBP as Wild Kingdom will host a special live event. The annual awards ceremony will conclude Saturday before Riot Act and its Pre-Show take place on Sunday. It’s being billed as SNW’s version of the WrestleMania weekend. But with Riot Act in July, there’s no direct competition, so this could draw very well. See the full schedule below:
Meanwhile, in other Japanese news. Former FUSE Champion Dave Demento has been announced for the touring roster for Pro Wrestling NOAH. He will spend the entirety of 2019 away from SNW on exclusion in Japan. Also, Jason Williams has returned from a short stint in Mexico.
Elliot Reid and Noah Lee have left SNW. Sources indicate they have been frustrated with their position in SNW. It is highly likely they will follow fellow Brit Mike Hogan to Alt:Pro.
There are new faces joining the Synergy roster. 17 year old Richard Shaw from Victoria, Canada joins the roster. Shaw has completed initial training with Cameron Stone alongside Cam’s sons Joseph and Michael, who are on the Synergy roster. Also joining Synergy is 18 year old CJ Alexa who will join the women’s roster.
Mike Bockwinkel has spoken on a podcast about the Antarctic show. He said it was Red Dragon’s crazy idea and he’s just been pulled along for the ride. He spoke of only taking a few roster members with them to Antarctica while the rest will put on a show in America. Bock said he’ll have the first match on the continent and it will be against old rival Red Dragon. He spoke of the planning of the event and praised Red Bull for their help and promotion which has given SNW a lot of press attention. Bock also indicated that he would be taking a break from the ring after the show but would still be involved both behind the scenes and in front of it just in a non-wrestling capacity whilst he rests up.

2019 kicked off in a big way for SNW, with six talents on a trip to become the first wrestlers to put on a show in Antarctica, SNW held another show back home. The show featured two teams from TCW. Coast to Coast returned as Knife Fight challenged them to a rematch after their loss at Clash of the Duos. Knife Fight evened the score at 1-1 and a handshake post-match indicated there would be a decider. In the main event another team from TCW, the Elite Racing Team challenged for the Duos titles. The Racing Team earnt the title shot back at Riot Act XI and finally managed to fit in a title challenge around their busy schedule. Despite their best efforts, they came up short against the Revolution X team.
1) Duke Parkland defeated Liam Hendrick, El Hijo de Angel Custodio and Dean Caufield in a fun four way opener with the KFC 2) AirDevils (Carson Clark and Travis Cantrell) defeated Parkland Bros (Axel and Rex Parkland) using their experience edge to win with the Bombs Away 3) Amy Lee defeated Red Fire to continue her winning ways since returning, she’ll have her sights set on Women’s Champion, Taliah Winters 4) Henry Edwards and Evan Pagano defeated Daniel Sinn and Steven Kagemann in a simple tag match when Edwards hit the HE Driver on Sinn 5) Prodigy Trial Series Match 1: Nick Jacobs defeated Ken Slayer in the first of the newly designed trial series to test Slayer against some of SNW’s best. Slayer looked good even in defeat 6) Knife Fight (Zakk Static and Cain Jackal) defeated Coast 2 Coast (Donnie East and Chris West) [TCW] with the Brainbuster/Spear combo to make up for the loss at CoD. Handshakes post-match indicated there will be a rubber match 7) Jet Jaguar defeated Jason Williams in a highflying contest with the TTM 8) Jordan Devine and Riley Shamrock defeated Lord Jamerson and Joseph Stone when Devine hit the Devinity on Jamerson. There was some uneasiness between Devine and Shamrock which nearly led to their downfall. Both are aiming to be next in line to the World title. 9) DUOS: Revolution X (Jack Joseph and Safu) defeated Elite Racing Team (Chase Bryant and ‘Big Rig’ Kevin Craig) [TCW] to retain after a GTS from Joseph
One Night on the South Pole
Live streaming from SNW Player and the Red Bull website, SNW became the first wrestling promotion to put on a wrestling show in Antarctica. The trip was in conjunction with Red Bull who filmed the planning, travel and show for a documentary release. The matches were held in a small ring inside a bubble. The matches obviously lacked in quality as all six men had to travel there and set everything up themselves so they were probably very tired before stepping foot in the makeshift ring. Nevertheless, it was a truly unique event and all six men worked hard and put on a better show than you would probably expect.
1) Red Dragon defeated Mike Bockwinkel with the Red Dragon Driver which will go down as the first match ever held in Antarctica 2) Jack Powers defeated Kevin Hart with the Choke Out in a short submissions based match 3) SNW: Chris Hammers defeated Ace Bennett to retain with a Lariat.

Alt:Pro Presents Implosion
Alt:Pro World Champion Mike Hogan opened the show and cracked a few jokes at both SNW and the Fire and the Fury’s expense. Johnny Arsenic and Vincent Fury came out and said that there was two of them but only one of him. Hogan then introduced Elliot Reid and Noah Lee making their Alt:Pro debuts. The two teams faced off and when F&F went to leave Hogan sent them back in, leading to a Flood Spinebuster from Noah and a double Stomp from Reid to pick up the win.
The big matches continued as the Junior and tag champs teamed up to face the international stable of Williams, Wiseman and Kuleshov. Williams and Wiseman picked up the win with a double team move on Warron. A bunch of youngsters picked up wins including singles victories for Manor and Knight before Alt:Pro kicked off the tournament to crown the first Intercontinental champion. Jax Anderson and CKJ advanced but Jax beat down Kyo after the match until AJ Matthews made the save.
Swindell and Crockett became no.1 contenders to the tag titles with a win over the former two time champions before Mike Hogan retained the title after using speed and technique to overcome the larger Everson. Hogan evaded Everson sending him into the ring post and then hit the Time Warp to retain.
QUICK RESULTS: 1) Elliot Reid and Noah Lee def. Fire and the Fury (Johnny Arsenic and Vincent Fury) 2) Arthur Williams, Rory Wiseman and Alexandre Kuleshov def. Dane Warron and Made in Detroit (Tobias Black and Nate Ryan) 3) Will Manor def. DJ Hughes 4) The Fabulous Taylor Boys (Robin and Ozzy Taylor) def.

Be the Best Qualifying Night 1
In the first of three nights of qualifiers for Be the Best, we saw some of SNW’s finest collide as they looked to pick up their first points. We also saw the World Champion and challenger meet in the ring.
1) BLOCK D: Safu defeated Duke Parkland with the Samoan Drop despite a spirited effort from the youngster
Nick Jacobs came out for tournament action but Mike Bockwinkel came out in a suit. He announced he is taking a break from in ring competition and instead he is looking to manage talents to get their full potential. He asked Jacobs if he wanted his services. His old tag team partner obviously refused. Bock indicated that he had a back-up plan since he thought that would be Jacobs’ response. Bock then pulled out a piece of paper and said he had ‘bought out’ Jacobs contract. In essence, Bock now owns Jacobs and if he disobeys his orders he will terminate the agreement and Jacobs will be unable to compete for SNW again (Jacobs was previously kicked out of SNW due to Bock’s actions). Bock said he is pulling Jacobs from the tournament until he treats his manager with proper respect. His replacement is Cody Rejero.
2) BLOCK C: Jack Joseph defeated Cody Rejero with the GTS meaning that the Duos Champions are 2-0 on Night 1 3) BLOCK A: Riley Shamrock defeated El Hijo de Angel Custodio with the Ode to Shamrock in a surprisingly open contest 4) Knife Fight (Zakk Static and Cain Jackal) defeated Matt Spade and Jacob Ryler with the Brainbuster/Spear in a break from tournament action 5) BLOCK B: Prodigy Trial Series Match 2: Jet Jaguar defeated Ken Slayer with the TTM. A very good match between two of SNW’s younger talents 6) BLOCK A: Daniel Sinn defeated Jason Williams with the Original Sinn
SNW World Champion Chris Hammers and the challenger for the title at Be the Best iPPV, Jordan Devine met in the ring. They were flanked by Revolution X and Amy Lee respectively. They traded words with Hammers saying he thought of Devine as a brother before he betrayed him (see Revolution X Civil War). Devine said he left RevX to get out of Hammers’ shadow. Devine said when he was RevX leader (when Hammers was in NOAH but secretly plotting against the United Front) he did a better job than him. Hammers said Devine is failure and always was. Taliah Winters and Amy Lee nearly came to blows and had to held back. RevX retreated allowing Amy to have the next match.
7) Amy Lee defeated Wasp with the Downward Spiral to continue her march towards challenging for the Women’s Championship 8) BLOCK D: Henry Edwards defeated Steven Kagemann with the HE Driver after Edwards got his knees up to the Fire Tornado 9) BLOCK C: Evan Pagano versus Jack Powers went to a draw when the 20 minute time limit expired 10) BLOCK B: Ace Bennett defeated Kevin Hart with a roll-up just before the time limit

Be the Best Qualifying - Night 2
With Night 1 of Qualifying in the bag, the athletes of SNW looked to pick up more points in Night 2.
1) BLOCK C: Evan Pagano defeated Cody Rejero with the Calling 2) BLOCK A: Daniel Sinn defeated El Hijo de Angel Custodio with the Original Sinn 3) Knife Fight (Zakk Static and Cain Jackal) defeated AirDevils (Carson Clark and Travis Cantrell) when Static locked in the Koji Clutch on Cantrell in a break from the tournament action 4) BLOCK D: Henry Edwards defeated Duke Parkland with the HE Driver. Full credit to Duke who took everything Edwards’ threw at him but couldn’t last the distance. Handshake post match.
SNW World Champion, Chris Hammers made his way out with the rest of Revolution X (Duos Champions Safu and Jack Joseph and Women’s Champion Taliah Winters). Hammers said this is what he wanted from day one, a dominant RevX holding all gold. The challenger for the World title at Be the Best, Jordan Devine interrupted with his wife Amy Lee. He said that he’s just made a special attraction mixed tag match official for the Night 3 Qualifier show between Hammers and Winters versus Devine and Amy. Devine said it’s shame it couldn’t happen tonight, Hammers got personal by insulting Amy saying she would never make a good mother. Amy slapped Hammers and Winters tackled Amy leading to Hammers and Devine brawling. All four brawled to the back. .
5) BLOCK D: Safu defeated Steven Kagemann with the Pop-Up Samoan Drop 6) BLOCK B: Prodigy Trial Series Match 3: Kevin Hart defeated Ken Slayer with the 450 Splash. Another great showing by SNW’s youngster. This is exactly the challenge Slayer needs.
Mike Bockwinkel made his entrance and recapped the situation where he has bought Nick Jacobs’ contract and therefore owns him. He called out Jacobs and said he is going to teach him a lesson in respect.
7) Nick Jacobs defeated Viper Tion with the Jacobs Drop. Tion is a Jushin Liger inspired character but didn’t do enough for the win.
Bock congratulated Jacobs and then said he had a special reward. Bock said he bumped into a ‘pissed off’ guy in the back who was looking to let of some steam so he’s booked another match. Chris Hammers walked out and Bock said that Hammers agreed for it to be a title match.
8) SNW: Chris Hammers defeated Nick Jacobs to retain with the Lariat. It was kept short, Jacobs was still tired from the first match and Hammers just dominated. There was a small hope spot then Hammers just went on a destruction path. 9) BLOCK A: Riley Shamrock defeated Jason Williams with the Irish Welcoming 10) BLOCK C: Jack Powers defeated Jack Joseph with a Heel Hook counter to the Pele Kick 11) BLOCK B: Ace Bennett versus Jet Jaguar went to a 20 minute time-limit draw
In the final night of qualifying there was still plenty to play for in the chance to make it to the final four.
1) BLOCK A: Jason Williams defeated El Hijo de Angel Custodio with the 630 Splash in a quick highflying contest 2) BLOCK D: Steven Kagemann defeated Duke Parkland with a Fire Tornado and continued the attack post-match by putting Duke through a table 3) Knife Fight (Zakk Static and Cain Jackal) defeated Lord Jamerson and Joseph Stone when Static locked in the Koji Clutch on Stone. Knife Fight challenged RevX to face them at Be the Best 4) BLOCK C: Evan Pagano defeated Jack Joseph with the Calling
Mike Bockwinkel made his entrance and recapped the situation where he has bought Nick Jacobs’ contract and therefore owns him. He called out Jacobs and then his opponent, who was Petey the Pirate. Bock explained that it was not a wrestling match but a dance off. Jacobs refused and Bock threatened to terminate the contract. Jacobs started to dance and Petey rolled him up as Bock counted to three. Bock told Jacobs that he “wasn’t ready”.
5) BLOCK B: Prodigy Trial Series Match 4: Ace Bennett defeated Ken Slayer with the Busaiki Knee. Slayer nearly took Ace to a time limit to earn his first points but fell as the time limit approached 6) Chris Hammers and Taliah Winters versus Jordan Devine and Amy Lee went to a no contest after the two teams brawled through the arena 7) BLOCK C: Jack Powers defeated Cody Rejero with the Immortality submission 8) BLOCK D: Henry Edwards defeated Safu with the Crossface in a hard hitting bout 9) BLOCK A: Riley Shamrock defeated Daniel Sinn with the Irish Welcoming. Riley got the better of his old rival who managed to pick up two wins in the tournament 10) BLOCK B: Jet Jaguar defeated Kevin Hart with the TTM. Block B was always going to be good and every match from the Block has been of the highest quality. This was potentially the best because of everything going into this. Neither wanted a time limit so they went at it from the bell but neither would stay down for the three. In the end JJ took the win. It was a surprise for some but JJ was been on of SNW’s best for a couple of years now. It also meant that the FUSE Champion lost twice in the tournament.
BLOCK A El Hijo de Angel Custodio  Riley Shamrock  Daniel Sinn  Jason Williams 
Former two time SNW World Champion, Riley Shamrock tops the Block with a full 6 points from his three wins. His old rival, Daniel Sinn comes in second with 4 points while Jason ends on 2 and El Hijo pointless.
BLOCK B Ace Bennett  Kevin Hart  Jet Jaguar  Ken Slayer 
In what was possibly the most stacked talented Block in Be the Best history, we have a tiebreaker between Ace Bennett and Je Jaguar, they will compete at the tiebreaker event to decide who takes the block. FUSE Champion, Hart will be disappointed to end on two points while Slayer brought all the fire but finished without a win but with lots of respect.
BLOCK C Cody Rejero*  Jack Joseph  Evan Pagano  Jack Powers 
There will need to be a tiebreaker between former United front stablemates, Pagano and Powers. Joseph picks up two points meanwhile Cody, a late replacement for Nick Jacobs, finishes pointless.
BLOCK D Henry Edwards  Steven Kagemann  Duke Parkland  Safu 
Henry Edwards tops his Block and is the second man this year to go undefeated. RevX’s Safu came close and Kagemann finished on 2. Duke didn’t get a shock win this year but did earn more valuable experience. *replacement for Nick Jacobs

Alt:Pro Presents Salutation
Jake Swindell and Ron Crockett opened the show. The unlikely no.1 contenders to the tag titles found themselves in the Intercontinental title qualifiers. Swindell went first and managed to beat Everson ramping up the pressure on Crockett. Meanwhile youngster Will Manor picked up another win to put himself in Junior title contention. In the next match, CKJ got the pin in a tag bout to further his IC title ambition. Whilst the big Russian picked up a dominant win.
With the tag titles no.1 contenders in singles action, The Taylors challenged for the belts after picking up a win at the last show. The two young teams put on a great chemistry filled bout but the champions retained after an assisted flip piledriver. Reid and Noah picked up their second Alt:Pro win but after the bout the Blaze Brothers interrupted and ‘welcomed’ Reid and Noah to Alt:Pro by attacking them. In other tag action, the Fire and the Fury picked up a pin victory over the World Champion. Johnny Arsenic fought Assassin to the back, the distraction allowed Fury to hit a low blow and hit the Fury Strike for the win. Crockett didn’t manage to advance in the IC tournament and fell to AJ Matthews who was attacked by Jax Anderson after the match. Swindell tried to console his partner after the match but Crockett didn’t want his help. In the main event Junior Champion Warron had to overcome two men but also the two men are tag partners. He fought hard but fell to the Excalibur to give Arthur his second Junior title. This was the first show where the Juniors main evented and it worked, especially with the ultra-popular Dane Warron.
