Boxer vs. Wrestler:
–“Butterbean” Eric Esch vs. Sterling James Keenan
The main event for Warriors 4 on June 25th has been signed, and it’s a big one! The main event will pit Pro Wrestler vs. Pro Boxer as former FNW Heavyweight Champion and “International Badass” Sterling James Keenan will take on former IBA Super Heavyweight Champion, MMA, Boxing, and Toughman superstar “Butterbean” Eric Esch! Butterbean gained notoriety tearing up the Toughman Contest scene in the 90s before moving on to professional boxing, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts. In 1997, Butterbean won the IBA Super Heavyweight Championship by defeating George Linberger, and never lost the title, relinquishing it when he left the promotion. He appeared in the major motion picture Jackass: The Movie, knocking out Johnny Knoxville. This will not be his first encounter against a wrestler, however. Many fans may remember his bout against Bart Gunn at WrestleMania XV, where he knocked out the Brawl For All winner in 27 seconds. Also, Esch has defeated many pro wrestlers in the MMA world, including submission victories over Tom Howard and Aaron “Jesus” Aguilera, and a 29 second TKO win over Sean O’Haire. How will SJK handle the 400 lb. boxing & MMA superstar? Will Butterbean be able to knock out the arrogant “International Badass”? Come to the Ches-A-Rena in Cheswick, PA on Friday June 25th to find out!!!
FNW Heavyweight Title Match:
–Josef Von Schmidt defends against “Big Time” Bill Collier
The dominant German FNW Heavyweight Champion Josef Von Schmidt has made quite an impact since his debut in Pittsburgh. Not only did he defeat FNW legend T. Rantula, but he also defeated both former FNW Heavyweight Champions before him in Sterling James Keenan and Scott Fowler. His next challenge comes in the form of “Big Time” Bill Collier! The powerful Collier has been having issues with Jon Bolen lately, but will have to be focused on Von Schmidt on June 25th as he challenges for the FNW Heavyweight Title for the very first time! Which of these two monsters will walk away with the gold?
–“Hot Property” Jason Cage vs. “No Mercy” Tommy Mercer
A young man making a name for himself in the Cleveland area is “No Mercy” Tommy Mercer. On June 25th, he will make his debut in the Pittsburgh area at WARRIORS in Cheswick. His first opponent will be none other than “Hot Property” Jason Cage, one-half of the Pittsburgh Tag Team Champions the Iron City Showstoppers! Jason Gory will not be in attendance on June 25th, so his partner will have to go it alone in singles competition as he takes on the debuting Mercer. Mercer has claimed he’s coming to WARRIORS to make a statement, what statement is that? And what does manager Carmen Marie have to do with Mercer coming to WARRIORS?
–T. Rantula vs. Ashton Amherst
The loudmouthed, obnoxious former Pittsburgh Tag Team Champion Ashton Amherst seems to have angered somebody. We haven’t heard any backstage reports of disruptions caused by Amherst (besides the usual from the “Ashton Experience”) but considering he is now faced with the giant T. Rantula on June 25th, somebody must have it out for Amherst. But he is not without the abilities to defeat the FNW legend. He is not a former 2-time Pittsburgh Tag Team Champion for nothing. He and partner Patrick Hayes held the titles for over a year, defeating top teams from all across the region including the best Pittsburgh, New York, Ohio, Michigan, and Philadelphia had to offer. But can he topple the 6’10” 300+ lb. giant?
–“The Urban Cowboy” DJ Young vs. Jon Bolen
In the last few months, Jon Bolen has run through some of wrestling’s top rookies, including Ryan Reign, Tony Hansen, and Lucio DeVeer. But he craves more competition from WARRIORS. That has led to confrontations with Michael Blade, and more recently, “Big Time” Bill Collier. But now, he’s scheduled to take on one of the FNW Academy’s top graduates in recent months, “The Urban Cowboy” DJ Young! Young picked up a big victory at the last WARRIORS event against Facade. However, while Facade is a quick, fast-paced wrestler, Bolen is powerful, scary, and intense. Can he be the one to take down Bolen? Or is Bolen going to continue his run through the roster in his attempt to take on a “more competitive” opponent?
–“Sweetness” Samuel Elias & Jimmy Vega$ vs. “The Steel City Prodigy” Ryan Mitchell & Michael Blade
At the last WARRIORS event, there was some controversy around the Ches-A-Rena Championship. “Sweetness” Samuel Elias came into the event as the champion, defending his title against his old nemesis, the “Steel City Prodigy” Ryan Mitchell. In the middle of the match, Michael Blade took advantage of the Ches-A-Rena Championship’s rule that the title is on the line at anytime the champion is in the building and hit the ring with a referee. Three seconds later, he was the new champion, and the two men in the match were left baffled. The match continued and Mitchell defeated Elias with his Steel Curtain DDT. Later in the night, Blade was posing for photos with fans in the ring during intermission. As he was about to leave the ring, Elias snuck in and rolled him up to win the title again, then fled the building. Now, the three men will be in the same ring on June 25th in the Ches-A-Rena, but this time it will be tag team action as Blade & Mitchell team up to face Elias & and the body-spray-obsessed Jimmy Vega$.
