On January 8th at the School of Morton, we hope that you'll join us to kick 2017 off with a bang! Here is a look at the card for the night:
SOM Youth Title Match: Jungle Boy (c) vs. "Hound Dog" Jake Allen vs. Gabezilla
The Jungle Boy has been a dominant champion and is yet to lose a match in the SOM, but at New Year's Wrestlelution: The Hat of Misfortune, he will take on two competitors. Will he walk away with the SOM Youth Title or will he finally be dethroned?
Chris Jackson and Jake Miller vs. David Lee Rock and BTSG
This will definitely be an unusual match, as Jackson and Miller have been locked in a rivalry with each other for over a year now. The new owner of the SOM, Judas the Mad Hatter, proclaimed that the Street Fight between Jackson and Miller would be the culmination of their rivalry. He then announced this match for New Year's Wrestlelution: The Hat of Misfortune. Will they be able to co-exist in order to win the match?
Grudge Match: Sir Derek Williams and Brian Jeffries w/General Kazimir vs. Danny and Buster Dooley
Last month after their match, Sir Derek Williams viciously attacked Danny Dooley. Now, he has enlisted the help of another wrestler who has had problems with the Dooley family, Brian Jeffries in order to take out two of the three Dooleys. Will Jeffries and Williams put an end to the Dooley legacy? Find out on January 8th at New Year's Wrestlelution: The Hat of Misfortune.
Elliott Russell vs. Hank "The Machine" Miller
Last month, Hank Miller pinned the X Division Champion, Draco. If not for Judas the Mad Hatter reversing the decision, Miller would be the X Division Champion. At New Year's Wrestlelution: The Hat of Misfortune, "The Machine" looks to take out his anger on Elliott Russell.
The SOM Debut of Menace
On January 8th at New Year's Wrestlelution: The Hat of Misfortune, a top star on the East Tennessee independent scene, Menace, will debut at the SOM. His opponent is yet to be announced.
X Division Title Match: Draco (c) vs. Christian Taylor
At Christmas Krunch II, Christian Taylor defeated Barrett Stout to become the number one contender for the X Division Title. Will his streak of dominance continue when he faces the X Divison Champion, Draco?
East Tennessee Tag Team Title Match: Jeff Castro and Mystery Partner vs. Aden and Christian Cross (c)
At Christmas Krunch II, John and Jeff Castro lost their East Tennessee Tag Team Titles to the Cross Brothers. Some say that the win was a fluke, as John Castro left the ring in the middle of the match when provoked by Draco. At New Year's Wrestlelution: The Hat of Misfortune, Jeff Castro vows to find a new partner who can help him reclaim the East Tennessee Tag Team Titles.
SOMWA Title Match: Maverick (c) vs. Barrett Stout
Last month, while Barrett Stout didn't beat Christian Taylor to become the number one contender for the X Division Title, but he did impress Judas the Mad Hatter, who decided to give him a SOMWA Title shot at New Year's Wrestlelution: The Hat of Misfortune. Barrett Stout will be going into this match as a true underdog. Will he accomplish the unthinkable act of taking Maverick's SOMWA Title? Find out on January 8th.
East Tennessee Title Match: "The Voodoo Prince" Robert Laveau vs. Rickey Dooley (c)
At Christmas Krunch II, Rickey Dooley did what no one thought he could do and defeated the Sultan to become the new East Tennessee Champion. In his first title defense, he will face one of the toughest wrestlers in the School of Morton, "The Voodoo Prince" Robert Laveau. Laveau is the only remaining client of Judas the Mad Hatter and was given this title shot by Judas. Clearly, Judas wants his man to hold the East Tennessee Title, and has the ability to adjust the match into Laveau's favor. Will Laveau, the first ever East Tennessee Champion, reclaim the title that he once held?
