For the NRW Championship, Mercury Yaden defends his championship against Atiba. JK Pop, with Preston Oblinger Skidmore and Lola by their side, defend their championships against The Island. For the Rocky Mount Pro Championship, David Drake defends his title against the winner of the Aces Wild 2023 tournament.

Freelance Wrestling presents Any Given Saturday.

On Saturday, January 14th, Freelance Wrestling presents Any Given Saturday from the Logan Square Auditorium in Chicago, Illinois, at 8 pm. The event will be streaming live on IWTV and, with it showcasing some of the best matches, anyone will witness anywhere on this night.

As of this writing, as many as six matches appear to be on tap. Those matches include; Kerry Morton defending his NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship against GPA. Morton has emerged in the NWA as a second-generation talent that continues to learn and grow with the help of his father and on his own. Will GPA prove why he is the academic standard independent talent coming out of Chicago today?

It will be a busy night for the Morton family as Kerry’s father, the legendary Ricky Morton, will have an opportunity to become a world champion as well. He faces current Freelance World Champion, Robert Anthony for the championship. Morton’s career spans more than forty years and has had a bit of a renaissance with his time as part of the NWA recently.

In singles action, Kylie Rae faces Raychell Rose. In one of two triple-threat matches on the night, Storm Grayson battles Trevor Outlaw and Effy. The other match will feature Heather Monroe against Blair Onyx and Free-Range Kara.

Finally, in a six-way Scramble Match, David Ali faces Evan Greenaway, Craig Mitchell, Sorta Incredible Iverson, Bucky, and Connor Hopkins. Each competitor presents a threat and should pose a very exciting match for those in attendance and those watching on IWTV.

Remarkable Wrestling presents Skye is the Limit.

On Saturday, January 14th, Remarkable Wrestling presents Skye is the Limit from Deer Park, New York, and airing live on IWTV. The event has had to undergo changes to the card as of this writing. That said, what has been scheduled does appear special for all involved. As shown in the graphic above, the featured match involves noted indie wrestling face, Ken Broadway.

But as Broadway comes into this match, he stands across the ring from current RW Heavyweight Champion Gabriel Skye.

For the Remarkable Tag Team Championship, Miracle Generation faces Fight or Die. Percy Ryan and Jesse Danielson face The Midnight Cowboys.

Warrior Wrestling Presents Back To The Bend

On Saturday, January 27th, Warrior Wrestling presents Back to the Bend. The event takes place in South Bend, Indiana. Their shows can be streamed on Pro Wrestling TV. The show has nine matches listed, and name value alone suggests this event will be a banger of a show. As shown in the graphic above, Warrior Wrestling Champion KC Navarro faces AEW’s House of Black member Buddy Matthews.

While the Navarro/Matthews is likely the crescendo of the night’s festivities, it is by no means the only sold match on the card. In a triple-threat match for the AAA Mega Warrior Championship, El Hijo del Vikingo defends his title against Rey Horus and Flamita. Kylie Rae faces Queen Aminata in another singles match on the card.

One of AEW’s newest standouts, Konosuke Takeshita, faces former one-half of the NXT Tag Team Champions, Zachary Wentz. In a fourth singles match on the card, Beastman battles Brian Pillman Jr. The always charismatic and former IWTV Champion, Warhorse battles the massive Calvin Tankman.

The always-dangerous Max the Impaler battles Tootie Lynn in the fifth singles match of the evening. In tag team action, the Bang Bros square off against FTC with Frank the Clown. What shenanigans can we anticipate coming from Frank on this evening? Finally, Christopher Daniels faces an opponent that still has not been announced.
