Future Stars of Wrestling (Las Vegas) and LA LUCHA (Los Angeles) co-presents the Limitless Tournament a Two Night-Two City Tournament in Los Angeles, CA and Las Vegas, NV April 26 and 27. The No Limits (Cruiserweight) Division takes center stage with 16 of the best High-Flyin’, Risk Takin’, Speed Killin’ Rasslers from all over the world. Matt Vandagriff already advanced in the Tournament April 12 when he beat “Dirty” Dom Kubrick at the FSW Arena April 12 and if that contest was an indication of what’s to come then this tournament is truly “Limitless.” The first round will be in Los Angeles at the Inoki Dojo and round 2 with the 4 Way Elimination Match Final will be in Las Vegas at the FSW Arena the following night.

“The King of Sleaze” arrives so get your popcorn ready because anything can happen. Ryan faces Delilah Doom who is one of the top women’s stars on the indie scene. She had an opportunity on IMPACTWrestling earlier this year against former Knockouts Champ Tessa Blanchard, and a win over Ryan would continue her rapid pace. Joey Ryan is always entertaining and will “The Queen of Aerobic Style” end up with his Blow Pop.

The Bonus Boyz are scratching and clawing for another shot at the FSW Tag Team Titles, and The Bomb Squad would love to get one. Cox and Gates want the match to be fast a wild, but despite their size, the Boyz can handle a match with pace. Their double-teams are crisp and sound to cut the ring off and disable their opponent’s strategy. A win over Clutch and Sugar could propel them into a big money fight with One Percent who have cleaned out the Tag Team Division in Southern Nevada.

Baja Stars Cruiserweight Title Match: Four Way ScrambleDanny “Limelight” Rivera (c) vs Fidel Bravo vs Koto Hiro vs Manny Mars

The Champion Rivera is coming off a win over Douglas James in his last singles Title defense and upended DJ and Hammerstone in a 3 Way Match prior. “Limelight” is a tremendous young talent and a great Champion. These matches are extremely tricky and dangerous since Rivera doesn’t have to get pinned. Don’t be fooled, Fidel Bravo is very slippery and cunning which makes him a major threat, and you can’t count out Koto Hiro or the youngster Manny Mars.

Ice Williams vs Funny Bone

Ice brings the streamers and a hot streak to Los Angeles in Round one against the DEMIGOD of DEATH. Funny Bone wants to get after it right away and will take the fight to Williams. Ice wants to keep his distance and counter Bone’s aggressive style with rapid in and out strikes. The winner faces “The Flip Artist” Matt Vandagriff in Round two.

Suede Thompson vs Eli Everfly

We’re not talking a Curt Hawkins type streak here but Suede Thompson is due for a win, and that’s why he’s dangerous in this spot. Thompson won the 2018 PP3 Cup (beat Royce Isaacs) and has twice been a finalist in the “Against All Odds Rumble” so Thompson knows how to get it done when the lights are brightest. However, The Fly will have something to say about that. Everfly’s nightmare style of HighFlying-High Risk all the time makes his opponents keep their head on a swivel because he can attack from any angle. Eli will be a tough one to end a bad run against.

“Relentless” Douglas James vs Lucas Riley

James returned from a dislocated hip this year and is right back on track. He has a win over Hammerstone last month and is a heavy favorite to get to Las Vegas Saturday. Lucas Riley is poised for a breakout. The young star is lightning fast and like Everyfly is a match-up nightmare. So is DJ. He can wrestle anywhere the match goes which is why he’s won Titles everywhere and would love to add the inaugural Limitless Tourney to that list.

“New Age Daredevil” Damian Drake vs Mondo Rox

Young star Mondo Rox has been making his bones throughout Las Vegas and surprised many April 12 when he won a Four-Man Scramble to qualify for the Limitless Tournament. Then he found out the No Limits Champion Damian Drake was his opponent. Rox will be ready for the Champ, but Drake has something to prove here. He’s the king of this division right now with the Gold, but with his rival Vandagriff, and DJ on the other side of the bracket and FSW Champion Chris Bey in his it’s a tall order to take the trophy home. However, nobody wants it more than Drake and his opponents will need to bring everything to Live Victoriously against him this weekend.

“Young Fuego” Adrian Quest vs Jakob Austin Young

Quest may be the most dangerous wrestler in the entire bracket after nearly taking home the PP3 Cup earlier this year. He’s had a different look about him in 2019 and that intensity has led to several eye-popping performances. Jakob Austin Young returns to SoCal and FSW to do his own damage. He’ll want to keep Quest from spreading the ring out and using the corners to execute offense and can’t get distracted by the speed and movement. Patience is going to be key here.

Chief” Owen Travers vs Adam Brooks

One of the biggest stars from Down Under, Adam Brooks makes his LA LUCHA debut against the former No Limits Champion. Travers is a tactical ring strategist who won’t be intimidated by the high-flying Australian. Chief has faced guys with tons of hype before only to get his hand raised in the end, but Brooks is different. He’s won Titles all over the continent and is a major threat to win the whole thing and take the trophy across the Pacific.

Chris Bey vs Jake Atlas

It’s unfortunate this is the first-round match because it would have been a possible pick for the final. Two stars who have exploded in 2019 face-off in a match that would end the show anywhere. Bey’s speed is next-level and the FSW Champion is tough as they come. He’ll need to be against Atlas, because few strikes as accurately and effectively as “Superstar.” Atlas uses his reach beautifully pinning opponents into the corner to do damage and set up the LGBDDT. The Ultimate Finesser can handle guys with power as he’s beaten Hammerstone, Shogun Jones, and “Uptown” Andy Brown during his title run.
