PWX Wrestling celebrated 11 years this past month with our annual event Rise of a Champion featuring the return of War Games to the Carolinas pitting The Revolt vs. The Xperience and while the main event delivered EVERYTHING else on the show did as well. In the end Rise of a Champion XI: War Games is being called one of the best independent wrestling shows of 2016...ANYWHERE! From the craziness of a 6 way ladder match, to technical warfare, and onto some of the best pure wrestling from some of the most gifted athletes in the sport let's take a look at this 11th Anniversary extravaganza that took place at Johnson C. Smith University's Brayboy Gym and brought PWX Wrestling to a whole other level.

 Wargames Cage

       WWE's Elimination Chamber, Impact Wrestling's Lethal Lockdown, CZW's Cage of Death, and Ring of Honor's Steel Cage Warfare; All of these are varying degrees of violence filled steel cage matches marred with complete and total violence, but the original which spurned all of these great matches came in 1987 developed by the late, great "American Dream" Dusty Rhodes and first produced at The Omni in Atlanta, Georgia that match is WAR GAMES! Great American Bash 1987 was the setting for one of the most grueling matches in the history of this sport; a match has pushed the best of the best to the very edge. War Games generally consists of two teams with either four or five members competing in two rings placed side by side encapsulated by a monstrous double cage, members of each team enter the match at varying times and only once every single competitor has entered the steel structure does "The Match Beyond" truly begin. At the point all members of both teams are entered into the match the action can only be stopped when forcing one of your opponents to submit, surrender or be no longer fit to continue the match pin falls and disqualifications have no implication inside the double cage. The list of men who have put it all on the line in War Games is a literal who's who of the wrestling world.

 

The Road to Rise of a Champion found PWX in Gastonia, North Carolina for the first time ever on February 20th and that road was a VERY traveled one! 700 fans packed into the Gastonia National Guard Armory to witness a thrilling return of fan favorite, an INSANE match between Anthony Henry and Sami Callihan, The Xperience strengthening their ranks headed into War Games and much more!
