With less then a week away 3XWrestling’s “Reign of Terror II” is starting to heat up this frozen city! The real rumble will take place February 4th at the hottest place in town the Des Moines Social Club. Don’t miss your chance to see true professional wrestlers live in action!
Will this feud ever end? The hatred between two of the most talented wrestlers in 3XW has driven these men to extreme levels! The 3XW Pure Wrestling Champion, “The Laotian Sensation” Ricky Kwong, turned on his former partner, “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell, and the fans in a fit of jealousy last year. Since his turn to the darkside Kwong has assaulted Rockwell numerous times from behind and robbed him of the Pure Wrestling belt.
At last months show Kwong and The Mauler were disqualified after their manager and first class nerd, Chad Mylan, assaulted the ref! Rockwell and his partner Sir Bradley Charles got the win but not the way they wanted. “The Rockstar” had enough and took to the mic and challenged the villainous Kwong to a match at “Reign of Terror II”. There is one stipulation is in effect for that night. If Kwong gets disqualified the belt will change hands! This is sure to be a classic and brutal war between the one time allies.
The 3XWrestling Tag Team gold will also be on the line at “Reign of Terror II”. “The Horndogs” will be defending their titles for the first time against the “Genesis” team of Sly and Smooth. “Maddog” McDowell and Krotch of “The Horndogs” have been together for some time and finally won the belts that they deserve. After beating another “Genesis” team, Casanova and “Delicious” Devin Carter, the “Dogs” will have to keep watching their backs as every tag team will be gunning for them now.
This new “Genesis” tag team of Sly and Smooth are not really new. As with all “Genesis” members “Torturous” Tony Sly and A.J. Smooth have been at 3XW since its inception. These two have yet to obtain any single titles so maybe as a tag team they will have more success. Being that this is their first tag match together it will be interesting to see how well these two clowns get along.
The 3XW Heavyweight belt will be defended as Brian Ash takes on the “World’s Fittest Wrestler” Mark Sterling. Team “Genesis” will take on the returning “High Flyers” and “The Canadian Sex Icon” Ryan Slade. In another tag team match American Ground and Air of “Genesis” will quarrel with Sir Bradley Charles and “The American Fury” Jon West. Also just recently added the always exciting Shane Hollister will have a match against the one and only Rebelucha!
Reign of Terror II” will be held at the Des Moines Social Club on Friday, February 4th located at 1408 Locust Street in Des Moines, IA. Tickets can be purchased online at 3XWrestling.com or at Cup O’Kryptonite and both Jay’s CD and Hobby locations. Advance presale tickets cost $12 for adults and $6 for kids 10 and under. Ticket will also be sold the night of the show at $15 for adults, $6 for kids 10 and under and kids 3 and under are free. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the bell time being 7:30 p.m. Be there or be square.

Two men enter! One man leaves! At next months 3XWrestling show, “Divide and Conquer”, a 60 minute Iron Man No Disqualification match will take place at the Des Moines Social Club! Mark Sterling will take on former 3XW Heavyweight champion “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt in a match that will be a ferocious battle with one man finally laying claim to being the best in the Midwest.
Mark Sterling debuted in 3XW in 2006 at “Retribution” at the legendary One Dollar Fitness Center (aka Devin Carters’ home). He had already built a solid reputation around the Midwest as he has been the NWA Central States champion, NWA Kansas champ and a NWA Midwest Tag Team champion. During that first year Sterling, who had much shorter hair at the time, established himself as great technical wrestler that could hold his own against anyone.
In late 2007 a change started to take place within Mark Sterling. He grew his hair out longer and added facial hair along with a lot more muscle. He began to get more intense during his matches and started talking more on the mic. He joined forces with Gage Octane and “Commissioner” Todd Countryman to form the original “Gentlemen’s Club”. In 2008 Sterling would win the 3XW Pure championship from Maddog McDowell of course with the help of the sneaky “Commissioner”. With Sterling now having backup at his beckoning call his new attitude became even more intensive then before! He came out to the ring like a mad man calling out wrestlers and yelling at fans and scaring small children. He would even taunt the 3XW crowd by daring anyone to do more push ups then he could and of course nobody could.
In the ring Sterling was now even more dangerous and would cheat at all times in an effort to get the win. He was all business when he got in the ring and his opponents knew it as Sterling would anxiously wait to get his hands on whoever crossed him. Sterling and Octane would take the Tag Team titles and hold on to them for eleven months before finally losing them to “The High Flyers”. After this loss Sterling and Octane went after “The Horndogs” before getting a rematch for the belts but during this time Sterling began to show a new face.
As passionate as Sterling is about winning he now started showing respect for those he fought in competition. After losing a hard fought match with “The High Flyers”, one in which Sterling stopped “The Gentlemen’s Club” from interfering; Octane, Countryman and Casanova attacked the “Flyers” from behind. An already enraged Sterling assaulted his former teammates but was out numbered and left unconscious in the ring.
Mark Sterling came back not long after for revenge on his one time stable mates and seemed content on finishing them off for good. But unfortunately a man known as “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt had other plans. These two superstars meet during the final for the “King of Des Moines 2010 Tournament” in what turned out to be a classic match up and saw the crowing of King Sterling. This feud started way before they met at 3XW though as these two Kansas natives have fought over 100 times in other promotions around the country.
At “Clobberpalooza Classic III” they had the rematch from the previous month’s tournament and saw Wyatt get the pin. Sterling challenged Wyatt again to a two out three falls bout at “Halloween Horror 4” and this time Wyatt used the assistance of a steel chair to knock out Sterling and get the win. Then at “November Knockout 2” Sterling and Wyatt hand picked each others opponents. They each won their match and at the end of Sterlings’ match a masked man appeared on the entrance but to everyone’s surprise Wyatt came from behind to attack him. The other wrestlers tried to keep them apart but to no avail as these men wanted blood! Sterling grabbed the microphone and challenged Wyatt once and for all to a one hour Iron Man match. Wyatt agreed but only if it is No Disqualification! Mark Sterling has trained a lifetime for this match and Wyatt will come prepared to fight to the death.
There’s only one way to see the bad blood between these two come to an end and that is to come out to “Divide and Conquer” and see which man remains standing!
“Divide and Conquer” will be held at the Des Moines Social Club on Friday, January 7th located at 1408 Locust Street in Des Moines, IA. Tickets can be purchased online at 3XWrestling.com or at Cup O’Kryptonite and both Jay’s CD and Hobby locations. Advance presale tickets cost $12 for adults and $6 for kids 10 and under. Ticket will also be sold the night of the show at $15 for adults, $6 for kids 10 and under and kids 3 and under are free. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the bell time being 7:30 p.m. Sterling will destroy all!

It’s that time of year again folks as we get ready for family gatherings, turkeys roasting in the oven, a time of peace and serenity……..and of course 3XWrestling’s “Holiday Havoc 2”! What better way to celebrate the holidays then with a full course meal of pro wrestling action?
The 3XW Heavyweight title will be on the line as the current champ Rory Fox will take on the “Gentlemen’s Club” own Brian Ash. This feud has been going on for the past couple of months and with the “Club” and their manager, “Commissioner” Todd Countryman, always interfering in the matches Fox may have to devise a new strategy for dealing with the big man.
Rory Fox made an immediate impact the first moment he stepped into the 3XW ring and to no one’s surprise was the 2009 3XW Newcomer of the Year. Many fans already knew Fox from the MTV reality show many moons ago called True Life: I Want to be a Professional Wrestler. The Iowa native has traveled the country mastering his craft for over ten years and is now setting his sights on Brian Ash and the “Gentlemen’s Club”. Fox won the 3XWrestling Heavyweight title in May at the “5 Year Anniversary” event from “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt in a sensational ladder match. Since then he has had to fend of the likes of Ryan Slade, Gage Octane and the rest of the “Gentlemen’s Club”. After having Ash and his cohorts continuously attack him from behind Fox is ready to end this once and for all!
Brian Ash is the very first 3XW Heavyweight champion and he carried the title for some time as he has wreaked havoc all over the wrestling world. Trained by the legends Harley Race and Dory Funk Jr., Ash has the tools, size and experience to take the strap from Rory Fox. But even with his natural abilities Brian Ash has once again chosen to take the easy ride to the top. Ash returned to the ring in March of this year after retiring in a “Loser Leaves 3XW” match from 2007 and seemed to be making amends for his past behavior. True colors were shown though as he returned to the ring and turned on his wrestling students Maddog McDowell and “The Unbreakable Zach Thompson. This is nothing new though as Ash along with Octane and Countryman were once known as the “Blue Chippers” before the creation of the dastardly “Gentlemen’s Club” and much like today cheated to win at all costs. Brian Ash wants his title back and Rory Fox will have to depend on speed, agility and maybe some outside interference to keep the big man down to retain his belt.
Other matches have been announced for “Holiday Havoc 2” including a rematch from last months show with the 3XW Pure Wrestling champion “The Laotian Sensation” Ricky Kwong taking on “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell. Last months match was incredible as these former tag team partners gave probably the best match so far in their 3XW careers. A stipulation has been put in place by the 3XW Board of Director as Kwong’s sneaky manager Chad Mylan will be handcuffed to Skylar Pierce during the match! Also a six man tag team match is in place as The Horndogs and Zach Thompson take on American Ground and Air with Ryan Slade. More matches will be announced soon!
In addition to all this pro wrestling excitement 3XW is putting on a “Holiday Havoc 2” preparty on December 1st at Cup O’Kryptonite, located at 4521 Fleur Drive, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. There will be free beer, door prizes, pro wrestlers, comics and did I mention free beer!
Also don’t forget to bring toys down to the show as 3XW is collecting for Toys for Tots!
“Holiday Havoc 2” will be held at the Des Moines Social Club on Friday, December 3rd located at 1408 Locust Street in Des Moines, IA. Tickets can be purchased online at 3XWrestling.com or at Cup O’Kryptonite and both Jay’s CD and Hobby locations. Advance presale tickets cost $12 for adults and $6 for kids 10 and under. Ticket will also be sold the night of the show at $15 for adults, $6 for kids 10 and under and kids 3 and under are free. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the bell time being 7:30 p.m. Don’t be a turkey bring a toy for a child in need!

As the days get colder and nights get shorter out come the ghouls and goblins and that can only mean one thing, 3XWrestling’s “Halloween Horror 4” is almost here! On October 1st at the Des Moines Social Club come see the best the Midwest has to offer for a horrific night of professional wrestling!
Without a doubt one of the most anticipated match ups for “Halloween Horror 4” will be the bout for the tag team gold. The current Tag Team champs, The Gentlemen’s Club, are set to defend their titles against The Horn Dogs. These two long time tag teams will be looking to do some damage at the 3XW arena and no one will want to get in their way!
The 3XWrestling Tag Team champs consist of the handsome Casanova and the red headed wonder boy, “Delicious” Devin Carter. These two have been with 3XW from the beginning and are the first ever tag champs for this promotion. But they have not always been friends and have looked at other from the other side of the ring as they fought over the 3XW Heavyweight title. After some grueling battles against each other Carter decided to do the unthinkable and team back up with Casanova in February of this year thus joining the much hated Gentlemen’s Club. Their second reign as the Tag Team champions came with a win over the High Flyers in March and they have been terrorizing 3XW and the fans ever since.
See the Gentlemen's Club at 3XWrestling's "Halloween Horror 4"
The Tag Team champs are going to need to bring everything they got plus the kitchen sink if they are even thinking about beating the top tag team contenders, The Horn Dogs. This unlikely dynamic duo is made up of the huge and powerful Maddog McDowell and the agile cruiserweight Krotch. The Horn Dogs had first teamed up in 2008 but went their respected ways as McDowell took on all challengers as he held the 3XWrestling Heavyweight title. Renewing their interest in the tag team gold this year The Horn Dogs have reunited in hopes of taking the belts back to the “dog house”. McDowell and Krotch have both stepped up their wrestling game and winning the gold could send them to the next level.

All eyes will be on the ring for what should be a classic match featuring brute strength, fast paced action and maybe a sleeper hold or two. Also be on the look out for the Gentlemen’s Club manager, the despicable and conniving “Commissioner” Todd Countryman, who will most likely be waiting for the opportunity to use his loaded briefcase. Other championship bouts and grudge matches will be taking place in addition to a frightfully scary over the top rope battle royal! Come join the family friendly action that is pro wrestling with 3XW.
3XWrestlings’“Halloween Horror 4” will be held at the Des Moines Social Club on October 1st located at 1408 Locust Street in Des Moines, IA. Resevse your tickets exclusively at the 3XWrestling website or tickets can be purchased at Cup O’Kryptonite and both Jay’s CD and Hobby locations.

3XWrestling’s annual “Halloween Horror 4” is just under three weeks away and the anticipation for the event keeps building. This frightful night is certain to include mangled bodies, bone crushing action and high flying thrills!
A match that was made at last months “Clobberpalooza Classic III” in now set to make this next show a must see for any pro wrestling fan. “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt and Mark Sterling are set to battle in what will no doubt be a contender for match of the night. The hatred between these two runs deep and is very real as they have had over one hundred matches against each other all over the country.
Mark Sterling is now hearing cheers as opposed to the jeers he had been receiving for years as a member of the arrogant “Gentlemen’s Club”. Now Sterling is considered to be a fan favorite and in many eyes should a top contender for the Heavyweight championship. Jeremy Wyatt truly stepped up his wrestling game in 3XW last year and has been on a physical and psychological warpath ever since. Wyatt debuted without much noise but with now with fire in his eyes he will do whatever is necessary to get the win. Taunting his challengers and fans alike this man needs security guards to even leave the arena.
Their feud in 3XWrestling began in August in the finals for the “King of Des Moines 2010 Tournament”. Both Sterling and Wyatt had fought there way up through the bracket facing two different opponents each that night before clashing with each other for the crown. The match that night was a masterpiece as each wrestler applied submissions, reversals and punches in what was a thirty minute classic. In the end that night Sterling was able to roll up Wyatt to get the win and become king. Sterling offered his hand in respect to “The Rebel” but in true Wyatt fashion he blew him off and instead wanted a rematch at the next show. Sterling gladly accepted the invitation.
After the match at “Clobberpalooza Classic III”, which saw Wyatt pin Sterling with a small package, “The Rebel” now claims to have won fifty-one matches to Sterlings’ forty-nine wins. Thus making Wyatt the superior wrestler or at least in his mind and maybe some of the 3XW fans. “The Rebel” then acted like he wanted to shake Sterlings’ hand but pulled away at the last second chuckling as he left the ring. Sterling grabbed the microphone and challenged Jeremy to a two out three falls to determine the better wrestler once and for all! You will not want to miss out on this match as these exceptional Midwest stars light up the Des Moines Social Club.
Some great matches have been signed for “Halloween Horror 4” including a battle royal, championship matches and grudge matches. Others matches will come in the following weeks leading up to this amazing event.
3XWrestlings’“Halloween Horror 4” will be held at the Des Moines Social Club on October 1st located at 1408 Locust Street in Des Moines, IA. Tickets can be purchased at Cup O’Kryptonite and both Jay’s CD and Hobby locations. Advance presale tickets cost $12 for adults and $6 for kids 10 and under. Ticket will also be sold the night of the show at $15 for adults, $6 for kids 10 and under and kids 3 and under are free. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the bell time being 7:30 p.m. Don’t miss it!
