Preview: IMPACT x NGW ‘The Uncivil War’ (8/19/18)


IMPACT Wrestling‘s ongoing series of indie showcase events on their Twitch channel continues this Sunday afternoon with a co-production with Next Generation Wrestling (NGW) out of Tennessee. IMPACT x NGW: The Uncivil War airs this Sunday on Impact’s Twitch channel, with a start time of 4pm EST. Here’s a run down of the events card.

War Kings (Jax & Crimson) vs. The Lynch Mob (Joey & Matt Lynch)


The tag team of Crimson and Jax Dane return to an IMPACT Wrestling broadcast for the first time since last August, when they were known as The Veterans of War, only this time it’s under their new moniker, the War Kings. Jax Dane is a former ROH star and NWA World Heavweight Champion, while Crimson formerly held Tag Team gold in IMPACT with Matt Morgan. Together, they’re the current reigning Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) Tag Team Champions, and they’re suiting up against The Lynch Mob, in brothers Joey & Matt Lynch. Joey Lynch is coming off a huge win in this year’s Scenic City Invitational Tournament and with his brother, looks to knock off the veterans in Uncivil War.

Trevor Lee vs. Myron Reed


Two incredibly talented young wrestlers, Trevor Lee has been one of the best Southern wrestlers of the past decade and he’s only 24. A 3x IMPACT X-Division Champion and a regular with Carolina Wrestling Federation (CWF) Mid Atlantic, where he’s the current reigning CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion and a 2x CWF Mid Atlantic Television Champion, Trevor Lee is a stud. His opponent is one of the indie scenes emerging stars, 21-year Myron Reed, a former Glory Pro Crown of Glory Champion and part of The Rascalz stable with Dezond Xavier, Zachary Wentz and Trey Miguel. This one as all the potential to be the show stealer.

Lenny Stratton vs. Eddie Edwards


The unhinged Eddie Edwards takes a slight detour from his IMPACT World Heavyweight Championship pursuits to face Tennessee’s own Lenny Stratton, a ten year veteran of the Southern indies. A regular with Innovative Pro Wrestling (IPW) and NGW, Stratton is a former IPW Television Champion looking to make some noise with a strong showing against the former IMPACT World Champion and hopefully find a way to outmaneuver the wildly insane actions of the former American Wolves star.

Nicole Pain vs. Su Yung


Also known as Nicole Stratton, Nicole Pain is another emerging talent from the Southern indies, making strides in NGW, Anarchy Wrestling in Georgia, and Freedom Pro Wrestling (FPW), often teaming with her real life husband, Lenny Stratton. But she’s going to be facing a rather angry Undead Bride when she faces IMPACT Knockouts Champion Su Yung in what’s sure to be a hard hitting affair, especially after the recent events in IMPACT.

Hoodrich vs. Moose


A 12-year veteran of the Southern indie scene, Shawn Hoodrich is a former NWA Southern Heavyweight Champion and a regular with NGW since 2015. He’s going to have to use speed and cunning as he takes on a man significantly larger than him in “Mr. IMPACT Wrestling” Moose. Moose has never quite recovered from his IMPACT World Championship loss to Austin Aries at Slammiversary last month and he may just take out those frustrations on the unassuming Hoodrich.

Joey Ryan vs. Eli Drake


Eli Drake is currently feuding with Joe Hendry on IMPACT Wrestling in an attempt to get back to the top of the mountain, but if he finds Hendry’s comedic stuff and irritant, he’s in for a world of frustration against “The King of Dong Style” Joey Ryan. The former IMPACT World Champion may think Joey Ryan is just another “dummy”, but if Ryan has his way, not only will Drake be facing his greatest asset (his iron clad genitalia), but he’ll get flipped as well. This match will be as entertaining as it gets.

AR Fox & Menace vs. Rich Swann & Matt Sydal


A high flying showcase featuring four of the best in the world today, in IMPACT’s Rich Swann and Matt Sydal, versus one of the indie scene’s best talents in AR Fox as well as long time veteran and CZW alumni Menace. Swann has been on a tear with IMPACT since his debut several weeks back and Matt Sydal hasn’t lost a step, despite losing his IMPACT X-Division championship. AR Fox has been a breakout star the past few years, with outstanding matches in EVOLVE, Lucha Underground, AAW, Beyond, and many more, and is a former EVOLVE Champion. His partner Menace was a mainstay in CZW back in the early 2000s before moving on to IPW, Pro Wrestling Federation (PWF) and most recently NGW, and he’s looking to show the world that 17 years, he’s still got it.

Matt Cross vs. Sami Callihan


Sami Callihan continues to unleash his reign of terror everywhere he goes, more maniacal than ever since losing his hair to Pentagon Jr. in a hair vs. mask match at Slammiversary. At Uncivil War, his opponent is no slouch though. Also known as Son of Havoc in Lucha Underground, Matt Cross is as tough as they come and the near 20 year pro has never backed down from a fight. A 3x Lucha Underground Trios Champion, former IWA Mid South Heavyweight Champion, Smash Champion, and one of the most decorated indie stars of the past two decades, “M-Dogg 20” isn’t someone who will be easily intimidated by Callihan’s scare tactics. This will be a fight.
