Just as a quick note, fans of Beef Welington who have been losing sleep wondering where Beef is sleeping since he lost a "Loser leaves Westmount" match and his girl friend/valet Elsa Bangz turned on him and kicked him out of her apartment... worry no longer! Check out Beef's new digs in a video promo on the IWS web-site.
Kevin Steen will face IWS veteran and locker room leader, Sexxxy Eddy at IWS Seasonís Beatings in a respect match. Eddy challenged Kevin Steen backstage during the last IWS show, Paybackís A Bitch. The two-time former IWS champion decided to give this cocky new star a chance to prove himself against the very best that the IWS has to offer. Little did anyone know that that challenge would change Kevin Steenís life.
The nineteen year old Kevin Steen is already being described as one of the finest technical wrestlers that Canada has ever seen, and he was promised a chance to prove his skill in a dark match try out with the WWE scheduled for February. But that audition came with a price: Steen was told to cancel his match with Sexxxy Eddy and go back on his word. Kevin Steen could have made the safe choice, the smart choice: he could have broken his promise. He didnít.
How much is a manís word worth? Is it worth his dreams? Is it worth his future? How much is Kevin Steenís word worth to you? If you believe in Independent Wrestling, you should be at Seasonís Beatings. If you believe that wrestlersí should not be held hostage to greed and ego, you need to be at Seasonís Beatings. And if you believe in Kevin Steen; if you support Kevin Steen, you must be at Seasonís Beatings.
The last IWS show, Paybackís A Bitch ended with the masked superstar ďXĒ confronting the IWS champion, the Arsenal. ďXĒ, a star of the Nashville based NWA/TNA promotionís weekly pay per views, announced that he had come to the IWS to take the Arsenalís belt. How will the One Man War respond to this challenge? More importantly, what part will the Arsenalís goons, the Hardcore Ninjaz play in ďXĒís quest to become IWS champion?
After being betrayed by his girl friend and valet, Elsa Bangz, at the last IWS show, Beef was left beaten, homeless and covered in blue spray paint. At Seasonís Beatings, Beef will be looking for a small measure of revenge when he faces off against Damian Decarie and Viking Ville Marie, le Syndicat de Lutte Internet. To help ensure himself of a Hardcore Hanukkah, Beef has recruited his new room mate to be his partner... El Generico. No doubt the Latin Luchador will be looking forward to giving Viking and Damian a Navitad Knuckling that the separatists wonít soon forget.
Meanwhile the leader of le Syndicat de Lutte Internet, Fred le Merveille will confront the man that he accused of being a traitor at the last show, EXcesS69 or as Fred refers to him ďMathieu Soixante-Neuf.Ē Fred promised EXcesS69 a war, but the brains of the SLI may have outsmarted himself taking on a man who has just finished five months as the apprentice of the most violent man in the IWS, the Green Phantom.
Speaking of the IWS hardcore hero, at press time, the Green Phantom was not scheduled to have a match. But as any long time IWS fan knows, every year at Seasonís Beatings, the Green Phantom brings a tree to the IWS to properly celebrate the holidays. Of course, the Green Phantom prefers to decorate his tree with the mangled bodies of other wrestlers. As he says, ďItís never really Christmas until someone Feels the Green!Ē
Like the Green Phantom, Dru Onyx is a former IWS champion. Like the Green Phantom, Dru Onyx finds himself without a match going into Seasonís Beatings. Of course, in the case of Dru Onyx thatís because IWS President Seska has decided to punish the Bajan Bomber for attacking PCP Crazy FíN Manny at the last show with a barbed-wire bat and leaving Manny with a severe concussion. But the Butcher from Barbados is not taking his punishment well. In fact, Onyx has promised, has guaranteed, ďI will be at Seasonís Beatings. Who is going to stop me? No one can stop 325 pounds of Canadian Mean!Ē
Also scheduled for the IWS annual hardcore holiday, the Flying Hurricanes will open the show by taking on Dan Paysan and Tomassino. Don Francescoís boys have been frustrated in their quest to secure themselves a shot at the IWS tag team titles. No doubt they will look to work out a few of those frustrations on Takao and Kenny the Bastard.
All this plus the Career Killer Kurt Lauderdale, Mark le Grizzly, Elsa Bangz, Commissioner Joseph FitzMorris, IWS President Seska and, as always, the voice of Quebec wrestling, the Team 990ís Brian the Guppie.
The IWS presents Seasonís Beatings scheduled for Saturday, December 13th, at Le Skratch, 965 Cure Labelle, Chomedey, Laval, Quťbec. Doors open at 8:30 pm. Tickets are twelve dollars.
