Bar Wrestling is bringing in the Summer with their show on August 1st, And Out Come The Wolves. At the American Legion Post 241, the well-loved LA promotion is bringing a huge bunch of stars to this show. We’ve got your Bar favorites but also some surprises which are literally so exciting you’d be stupid not to go. It’ll be a great way to start August and is the perfect mix of single and tag matches as Bar Wrestling presents And Out Come The Wolves.
Brian Cage & Scott Steiner vs. Joey Ryan & Orange Cassidy
Would you ever imagine seeing a match like this in 2019? Obviously, we’ve got the staple Bar Wrestling Brian Cage and the King of Dong Joey Ryan. However, looking at their partners, it couldn’t get any more bizarre. After the amazing reaction at the last Bar show, Joey Ryan brought out the big guns and has got wrestling phenomenon and all-round amazing guy Orange Cassidy. They have literally put two of the most laid-back people together who aren’t afraid to have a bit of fun and make fun of themselves. Then, teaming with the strong and charismatic Brian Cage, we’ve got the legend that is Scott Steiner. It’s literally a match of 4 of the most different men possible but that makes it even more exciting. Is this match going to be serious? No way. It will be full of fun but also some proper good old-fashioned wrestling and what else could you ask for at And Out Come The Wolves?
Tyler Bateman vs. Tommy Dreamer
If we thought to see Scott Steiner in a Bar Wrestling match was weird enough, it only gets weirder. This match has the Bar veteran and unorthodox Tyler Bateman which is good enough in itself. However, his opponent is just wow because Bateman will be wrestling Tommy Dreamer *Brother Brother*. This is literally like a taste from the past combined with the present and future. Both guys are completely different both in style and personality and that’s something that is exciting. Neither knows really what the other is capable of and there’s no saying what’s going to happen. Even though Tyler Bateman is such a favorite in Bar (and for me), I can’t see Dreamer not taking full advantage of this opportunity and kicking some ass at And Out Come The Wolves.
PPRay vs. Reno SCUM vs. Los Luchas vs. DoomFly
Initially seeing this matchup, it was both very exciting and intriguing. Any fan of Bar Wrestling is aware of the amazing tag team specialists DoomFly and PPRay and we’re also more aware of Los Luchas. However, the team of Reno SCUM is something less familiar so it’s going to be a very interesting match-up. DoomFly is obviously two of the most adorable and badass people in the entire world and their tag team continuity and offense are second to none. They also have the ability to put smiles on people’s faces. You’ve then got PPRay with the Librarian Peter Avalon and the beard master Ray Rosas. Although less focused on positivity, they still put a smile on people’s faces. Then there’s the athletic and crazy agile Los Luchas who are really gaining a following in this promotion. Yet, what is Reno Scum like? They could be the difference makers in this match.
Taya Valkyrie vs. Ethan Page
This matchup is probably one of the most exciting on the entire card. Not only is Bar continuously showing how far ahead of the game they are in terms of inter-gender wrestling, but just the quality of matches. Taya Valkyrie is probably one of the most badass women in the entire world and she just dominates the ring, no matter who she’s against. Then, you’ve got 13-year veteran Ethan Page with his big size and amazing strength. Initially, it seems like Page has the edge. But, anyone knows that Valkyrie is not someone to take lightly. She’s sneaky, talented and extremely powerful and this will definitely give her the edge over Page and could be what gets her the win at And Out Come The Wolves.
LuchaSaurus vs. Brandon Cutler
Here, we’ve got the battle of the AEW roster. These two are some of the most loved wrestlers in the world and are pure veterans in the business (even if not as much as the likes of Steiner and Dreamer). On one side, we’ve got the LuchaSaurus who, as well as being one of the most loved guys in AEW, is a Bar Wrestling favorite. Everyone has fallen in love with the half dinosaur, half luchador, and his amazing athletic ability and strength. Yet, with the amazingly loveable and creative Brandon Cutler as his opponent, there’s going to be a split in the crowd. Brandon Cutler is such a pure wrestler with an ability to pull a crowd into everything he does whether it’s a pure technique or a bit of flash. It might initially seem like LuchaSaurus has the advantage with his huge height, but never count out Cutler.
RockNES Monsters & Watts & Ryan Taylor vs. Jake Atlas & Heather Monroe & Dom Kubrick & Andy Brown
What is Bar Wrestling without a huge multi-man tag match? If we’re going to have a match with eight people in it, it’s only right to have some of the best and most charismatic people in the world. On one side, we’ve got the amazing tag team specialists RockNES Monsters (Yuma and Big Hunky Kev), the huge and dominating Eric Watts and technical prowess of Ryan Taylor. This is a team that’s got every style under the sun and a whole bunch of charisma and style. Yet, the team of Atlas, Monroe, Kubrick, and Brown is so pure and versatile. With the fearlessness of Monroe and Atlas (who have teamed many times before) and the skills of Kubrick and speed and strength of Brown, it’s a team destined for greatness. It’s impossible to pick a clear winner, but you’ve got to pick someone. As much as the latter team is pure bliss and pureness, the advantage here has to go to the Monsters, Watts and Ryan. With the tag team specialty of the Monsters, it gives them the slight edge even when Monroe and Atlas have teamed together in the past. Whatever happens, it’s going to be a crazy match.
There are no other words for this show other than nostalgia. With the likes of Tommy Dreamer and Scott Steiner, it’s a real throwback to the heydays of wrestling.
