#AndNEW: Matt Angel Wins Destiny Next Generation Championship

Matt Angel

As many parts of Canada prepare for tougher Covid restrictions due to the Omicron variant sweeping the country, it appears that Canadian independent wrestling will once again find itself slowing down again (and going on hiatus again in some provinces). But on Sunday, December 19, in Mississauga, Ontario, Destiny World Wrestling held Destiny: Zero Fear at the Don Kolov Arena, and in a huge title match between Destiny Next Generation Champion Aiden Prince and Matt Angel, the end result saw Quebec indie veteran Angel score the victory and become the fourth man to hold the title.

Destiny Wrestling is one of the top indie promotions in the Greater Toronto area, founded in 2014, and in 2019 the company launched a new title, the Next Generation Championship, as its secondary singles title alongside its Destiny Championship (currently held by IMPACT Wrestling’s Josh Alexander). It was first won by another IMPACT star, Trey Miguel, in a four-way final in 2019 to crown the first champion (against former NXT star Jake Atlas and All Elite Wrestling stars Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford), and has since been held by Kevin Blackwood and Aiden Prince. The win ends Prince’s reign at 119 days.

Matt Angel has been one of the Quebec indies’ top stars of the past decade and is the current reigning North Shore Pro Wrestling (NSPW) Champion in Quebec City. He is also a former International Wrestling Syndicate (IWS) World Champion in Montreal and Capital City Championship Combat (C4) Champion in nearby Ottawa, Ontario. This is his first title in Destiny Wrestling.
