For diehard Midwest wrestling fans, there may not be a more exciting event all year than the King of Des Moines tournament, 3XW’s annual August traditional. August 26 at All Play in Des Moines marks the third edition of this one-night tournament and the second year in a row featuring 8 competitors battling in traditional singles matches over three rounds. Winner takes home a massive trophy!
In my opinion, the 2011 tournament is shaping up to be the most unpredictable yet! Four very interesting opening-round bouts featuring long-time 3XW competitors that – and I can hardly believe this myself – have never faced each other in singles matches here in 3XW. Let’s look at the matches:
Maddog McDowell with Skylar Pierce vs. “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson

3XWrestling is gearing up for their annual King of Des Moines tournament later this month. At the last show two dominate wrestlers went to war for the 3XWrestling Championship as Brian Ash defended his title against Jeremy Wyatt. When the dust settled, there was a first, Brian Ash would submit to” The Belt Collector”. This would be the first time ever Ash has ever submitted in a 3XW ring.
While we wait for the moment for this year’s 3XW King of Des Moines tournament, let’s take a look at one of last year’s tournament matches as Wyatt would meet Zach Thompson in a semifinal match up of the 2nd-annual 3XW “King of Des Moines” Tournament. This match took place Aug. 6, 2010 at the Des Moines Social Club. Commentary by Midnight Guthrie and Skylar Pierce and production by SEP Video.
