New Midwest Wrestling Official, Lucious P. CoTrane handed the order down just this morning that on May 19th, at SPORTSENTERTAINAMANIA 2 at Lanphier High School in Springfield, IL, the New Midwest Wrestling Championship would be on the line in a Ladder Match. Tyler Priegel, the reigning champion and Dodgeball Superstar, would defend against Ryan Phoenix.
Of course, this doesn’t come without controversy. When Phoenix lost the Championship to Priegel, it was LPC who declared that Phoenix would not receive a rematch for the championship. And to add to that, we here at the news offices don’t understand why LPC wouldn’t put any of his co-conspirators in the Sovereign Plan to go against Priegel for the title.
When asked, CoTrane had only this to say: “I’m all for fairness believe it or not. And yes, the New Midwest Wrestling championship is in my sights to grab before Justin Clark and Sage Ramsey start trading it between each other for the next couple years. But Priegel and Phoenix are two of the hottest competitors in New Midwest Wrestling. Phoenix is owed a shot, and truthfully, he’s ranked #1 whether I like it or not. All I’m saying is, those guys will go at it and the man who comes down with the belt will be the New Midwest Champion. We need a defined champion before we can go on with our next phase. Thanks and go away.”
Well, that seems cut and dry, but we’re definitely interested to see where this will go. Phoenix and Priegel are two gladiators, both ready to show why they should be Champion!
