The Collective, a unified front of international indies spearheaded by Game Changer Wrestling (GCW), has a huge array of events over this April’s WrestleMania Week, including their flagship, Joey Janela’s Spring Break 4, plus events from Black Label Pro, Japan’s FREEDOMS, Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW), and the wrestlers of color event For The Culture. Another event, and one of the more recent announcements, is that multiple promotions from the red hit Texas indie circuit are uniting together for a showcase called Texas Forever. While no matches have been announced, the Texas collective has begun to announce some of the names confirmed from the all-Texas showcase. The event is being produced by Inspire Pro (Austin), Sabotage Wrestling (Austin), Heavy Metal Wrestling (San Antonio), New Texas Pro Wrestling (Abilene), and Lucha Brutal (Dallas).
Texas Indies Unite for Texas Forever
While not from Texas, former Major League Wrestling (MLW) World Champion “Filthy” Tom Lawlor has appeared for two MLW events in Texas, including the War Chamber Match this past September.
One of the top prospects from Texas is Houston’s Hyan. Texas has produced a lot of the top tier women’s talent in the past few years, and Hyan is on the bubble of exploding into 2020. A student of 2x WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, she’s the reigning 3x Reality of Wrestling Diamonds Champion and also holds the Sabotage Championship as well.
Ricky Starks has been one of Texas’ best kept secrets the past few years, but since departing the tag team Extra Talented, Starks’ stock as a singles competitor has sky rocketed over the past year, in part due to being one of the young stars that the rebooted National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) is building around.
