1,000 Matches In 2015 - Match 231: Team IOU Vs. Team UK Resistance Pro “ALIVE” [September 7th, 2013]
There are very few fluid things in pro wrestling that work as well as a well-oiled tag team. Team IOU defines that clearly, and with a team on the opposite side of the ring with a solid repertoire, it makes for a fun, exciting match. Team IOU shows some strong teamwork early on, but when Team UK gains control, they do so with authority. Enjoy this one! It’s quick, but it’s good… just like your mom!
Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst of Germany win GOLD, Agatha Bednarczuk and Barbara Seixas de Freitas of Brazil win silver, and Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross of the United States win bronze in the beach volleyball competition!!!
Kerry Awful on traveling the independent circuit 
When a former wrestler posted his disdain on Facebook about how today’s boys are “killing the business”, several wrestlers responded with posts of their own. Kerry Awful’s post was by far my favorite, and completely nails what it is to be an independent wrestler.
Well. I’ll address this.
I’ve got no ill will, feelings, or bias while saying this. I do feel bad for people who are so angered by my existence that apparently it is still an issue for them, that they feel they need to speak about me, or my business in the world of independent wrestling. I was told that in older days of the Memphis circuit that most people would get paid barley enough money to make it to the next town but kept doing it might after night because they knew the exposure they would receive would be able to pay. Many of those guys who suffered in Memphis were able to utilize that to push forward to have good careers and make money. Stan Hansen in his book even talks about traveling all over gods green earth to make a name for himself even when the pay was incredibly light or not there to help establish a name and reputation.
I was told a long time ago that traveling and sacrifice was part of the business. That it is worth it for the exposure, the chance to wrestle and meet new people. Paying dues doesn’t stop when you are trying to learn your craft. I have driven across multiple states and sometimes those paydays WEREN’T enough for me to break even. They were rich enough In life and learning experiences though that have helped make me a better wrestler and person.
Some of the things people have referred me to what have said seem a bit out of left field and are pretty goddamn fraudulent.
I’ve never conducted myself on any “too good” or “better than” attitude in any locker room I’ve been in. I’m constantly picking the minds of people who I know have gone further than I ever could dream of. People who have done something in this business and give back. Iggy and I both do attend seminars while traveling and unfortunately there are seminars we want to go to but can’t because we are booked places. I feel my reputation has always been that of someone who was respectful, quiet, and honest
It breaks my heart and has for a long time that one day some switch swapped off in your brain to make you like this. I tried reaching out, and still from time to time do ask how things are, but at the end of the day I’ve got to come to terms with the fact that there are some universal truths in this world and that people can’t be how you remember them or how you would like them to be. You will continue to be yourself and I’ll continue to be myself and be happy with and solemn in that fact that I’ve got no hate or anger. No use letting you ruin my day, as apparently I somehow do to you and have since you retired last year:
I’m proud of you, glad that you live the life that you do and hope that one day you can let go of all the bad stuff that boils up in you. Your a good dude at heart and that’s how I’m going to choose to remember you as, and if you want – I’ve still got the same phone number if you would prefer to talk to me about it.
And I’ll sit here. Still happy, content with the adventure.
Now I truly don’t care abt ur personal life. Who u r married to. It is whatever u say. But the continuing insult of ppl intelligence when defending Shonda Rhimes is bull shit. Shonda Rhimes didn’t address abortion with Olivia Pope she used as a shock and awe. Kerry we r not stupid. I get u and Shonda got these great education but u r not going to tell me that shit that Shonda Rhimes wrote for Olivia Pope was addressing abortion. I am not stupid by any chance. Just like her continuing none address of the abuse inflicted on the character u play. As a blk wm I am sick and tired of KW and SR bullshit. They act like we don’t have eyes and as a viewer I am dumb. We don’t like the way SR addressed abortion Kerry cause she didn’t address she used as shock and awe. Stop being insulting to the intelligence of fans. Pls. Do you as a blk wm even care abt how Shonda Rhimes is writing ur character to look r the mentally emotionally physical and sexual abuse she is plaguing on ur character so two white ineffectual characters and a blk anhk character can b viable. See ppl get on their soap boxes talking out both sides of their mouth how important blk representation is especially blk wm representation but when we as blk wm start calling out the messed up why a show runner is representing blk wm n the right why then u want to insult our intelligence. I am so over KW SR and all the bullshit.
Team IOU Vs. Viking War Party SNPW [June 1st, 2014]
If you’re a fan of the classic “boy and his dog” story, then you’re going to love this match. The team of Nick Iggy and Kerry Awful team up against Viking War Party at Strickly Nsane Pro Wrestling. The perfect way to kickstart the Summer is the scrappy team of IOU facing off against the brutality of the Viking War Party. Though the Vikings show little mercy to Team IOU, it’s as if Awful and Iggy wouldn’t want it any other way, showing that they can definitely hang in a strong match situation.
Watch for a huge chokeslam at the 10:00 mark. To see more of Team IOU, click here!
