Black Label Pro returns to Crown Point, Indiana on Saturday night with Quantum Leap, another great card featuring veteran and emerging US indie stars with a mix of national talents. As usual, Black Label Pro Quantum Leap will air live on IWTV at 1pm CST/12pm EST.
Ren Narita vs. Aaron Williams
New Japan Young Lion Ren Narita‘s US excursion continues on Saturday night, as he makes his return to Black Label Pro after debuting last November at Slamilton 2. The highly touted NJPW prospect is entering the ring with a 15-year veteran in Aaron Williams, who has cruised the rings with the likes of IWA Mid South, Rockstar Pro, St. Louis Anarchy and many more throughout his career. Williams is a former 6x IWA Mid South Heavyweight Champion.
Blake Christian & Alex Zayne vs. The Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier & Trey Miguel)
On a card with plenty of Match of the Night candidates, this one has the potential to steal the show. Two of Game Changer Wrestling (GCW)‘s breakout discoveries of 2019 unite together in tag team action, as Blake Christian and Alex Zayne team up for BLP against two of IMPACT Wrestling‘s Rascalz in Dezmond Xavier and Trey Miguel. A lot of athleticism in the ring for this one.
Chris Dickinson vs. Jake Something
A collision of two hosses, as Chris Dickinson continues his momentum from 2019, where he was the MVP for Beyond Wrestling as well as GCW and many others. He matches his combination of power, size and technical ability with one of the best Big Men in the US in Michigan’s Jake Something, who has been a destructive force with the likes of AAW Pro, Glory Pro, BLP, and more, including appearing with IMPACT as Cousin Jake in the Deaners tag team.
Bear Country (Bear Bronson & Bear Beefcake) vs. Corn Beef (1 Called Manders & Big Beef)
Bear Country emerged as one of the top new tag teams to come out of 2019 and the tandem of Bear Bronson and Bear Beefcake has been impressive so far in 2020 as well. This marks their third appearance for BLP, as they had big battles against Violence is Forever and Boomer Hatfield & Cabana Man Dan last year. They also had a game changing run in Beyond Wrestling’s Uncharted Territory. The duo of Corn Beef made their BLP debut this past January, and now look to get themselves in the BLP Tag Team title hunt. 1 Called Manders has been one to watch in 2019 and now 2020, and his new pairing with “Big Beef” Gnarls Garvin looks to be another great tag team addition to the US indie scene.
Violence is Forever (Kevin Ku & Dominic Garrini) vs. Wheeler YUTA & Lee Moriarty
Violence is Forever continues its torrid pace as a team to watch, as the reigning Southern Underground Pro (SUP) Tag Team Champions and bringing their aggressive style to the likes of BLP, Beyond Wrestling, GCW and many more. They’re facing a gifted team of athletic stars in Wheeler YUTA and Lee Moriarity, a breakout star from 2019 who is continuing his surge in 2020.
Black Label Pro Midwest Championship: AJ Gray (c) vs. Kylie Rae
The first championship match of the night is for the BLP Midwest Championship, currently held by AJ Gray. Gray really came into his own in 2019 and is now one of the top young stars of 2020, also holding the Glory Pro Crown of Glory title and ending Nick Gage‘s GCW World title run at 722-days. On Saturday, he’s defending his title against Kylie Rae, who has been unstoppable since returning to the indies in late 2019. The current reigning 2x Freelance Wrestling World Champion and Sabotage Wrestling War of the Genders Champion, Smiley Kylie is looking to add a third belt around her waist.
IWTV Independent Championship: WARHORSE (c) vs. EFFY
The reign of the WARHORSE continues as he approaches 160 days. While it’s still a far cry from “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams‘ astounding 309 days as IWTV Independent Wrestling Champion, WARHORSE has proven to be the fightingest IWTV champ, with over 30 title defenses since winning the title from Erick Stevens at BLP Turbo Graps 16 last September. For the first time anywhere, WARHORSE will lock up with EFFY, the flamboyant fighter who exploded in 2019 as well. Another potential MOTN candidate.
Black Label Pro Championship: Erick Stevens (c) vs. Josh Alexander
He may not be IWTV Champion anymore, but Erick Stevens has just passed 100-days as BLP Champion, defeating Kobe Durst at Slamilton 2. A stunning comeback to the industry after a decade away, the former Ring of Honor star hasn’t missed a beat. On Saturday, his title is on the line as he defends against one of Canada’s top indie stars and one half of the IMPACT World Tag Team Champions The North in “The Walking Weapon” Josh Alexander. Another match that will try and steal the show.
