    Global Force Wrestling Round One - Night Eight


    Night Eight: March 15th 2017 - Green Bay, Wisconsin


    Match Forty Three: Lio Rush vs. Suwama
    - In the first match of the evening Lio Rush (the winner of the ROH: 2016 Top Prospect Tournament) would be pitted against AJPW's Suwama who has held the Japanese promotion's heavyweight title a total of five times. With an age difference of nearly two decades it was clear that despite Suwama massive amount of in-ring experience, the Japanese wrestler was struggling with the youthful stamina and agility that Rush was able to bring to the table. Eventually Rush would seem to have tired Suwama out and would bring an end to the contest by leaping off the turnbuckle and landing on top of Suwama with Dragon's Call! Rush would celebrate the victory for a moment before helping Suwama back up to his feet and both men would proceed to shake hands in the middle of the ring, with Suwama take the time to applaud Rush and making sure that the Young Lion was given his moment under the spotlight.


    Match Forty Four: Rockstar Spud vs. Zack Sabre, Jr.
    - A contest featuring two men who during the early stages of their career took their home territory of the UK by storm. Some people would claim that Rockstar Spud still has potential for better things despite his current standing with Impact Wrestling although with that being said there was only going to be one winner of this contest. ZSJ was on top form as he was in full control of the match from start to finish and would eventually force Rockstar Spud to tap by locking in the New School Armbreaker and earning a spot in the second round of the tournament.


    Match Forty Five: Johnny Mundo vs. Caprice Coleman
    - Caprice Coleman is no spring chicken, but is also a man that many would consider a 'nearly man' and it was clear that beating Mundo could be just what was needed to inject some sort of like back into his career. The truth of the situation is that this is Global Force Wrestling and not Aesop's Fables and it was on Mundo's merit alone that he managed to not only wake up the fans with his intensity but also put on a performance that no one was likely to forget about anytime soon. Mundo would scalp Coleman's chances of glory by eradicating all of his chances by connecting with his brutal aerial move 'End of the World' that wouldn't just leave Coleman defeated, but make him look broken. Mundo would celebrate his victory in an over the top manner, but would show nothing but disdain and contempt for any fans that tried to interact with him and proceed to insult them before brushing himself off (literally) as he wold make his way towards the back as cheers from the crowd would quickly turn into boos and jeers.


    Match Forty Six: Iestyn Rees vs. Al Snow
    - It was clear that the involvement of Al Snow generated quite a buzz from the fans and the Green Bay fans would be treated to the appearance of Head. It was clear however that Iestyn Rees seemed almost a little bit insult and would actually take hold of a microphone and make it clear that that he hadn't signed up for this tournament to job to someone that belonged in a retirement home. When the match was underway it seemed that Snow and Head were in a conflict of direction that would result in Snow slamming Head into Rees' face. Of course this would result in the match immediately be brought to an end by way of disqualification. Snow paid no attention to the bell much to the delight of the crowd as he would proceed to beat the shit out of the young British talent without any care that he wouldn't be advancing any further in the competition. It would eventually take a GFW security team to pull Snow off Rees in order to bring an end to the brutal beating.


    Match Forty Seven: Jesse Sorensen vs. Mike Bennett
    - The final match of the evening was by far the most competitive of the night and it was clear that the fans were really invested in the contest. Both Sorensen and Bennett would be made to look strong in the contest, which was interesting considering that Jesse had been flirting with success since suffering from his horrific injury in 2013. Bennett on the other hand had been holding firm in the independent scene as of late and it was simply too hard to tell which of the two men was going to take hold of the match by the stirrups and claim the victory. The match would see a twist in its fabrics as Mike's wife Maria would emerge from the crowd and provide a distraction for husband that would allow Bennett to heavily damage Sorensen with a low blow before taking hold of him and nailing him with a Piledriver! The evening would end with Bennett and Maria sharing a 'romantic moment' in the middle of the ring as the show would come to an end.

    Quick Results:
    Rush def. Suwama
    Sabre, Jr. def. Rockstar Spud
    Mundo def. Coleman
    Rees def. Snow (via DQ)
    Bennett def. Sorensen

    Global Force Wrestling Round One - Night Nine


    Night Nine: March 17th 2017 - Cairo, Illinois


    Match Forty Eight: Ricochet vs. Masanobu Fuchi
    - The opening match of the final evening of Round One would see Ricochet take on AJPW legend Fuchi. Fuchi currently the director and co-head booker of the Japanese promotion involvement seemed to confirmed that an extremely strong bond had been forged between AJPW and GFW. The old timer would entertain the fans, but it was Ricochet who was by far the more talented of the two which wasn't at all surprising considering the massive age gap and the fact that Ricochet had been making a head of steam in recent recent in both New Japan, Lucha Underground to name just a few promotions within the indies. The match would be nothing more than a stepping stone for Ricochet to advance in the competition and he would do so by nailing Masanobu with a 630 Senton. After the contest Fuchi would make his way towards the back only to be greeted by one of GFW's co-owners Ric Flair who would help Fuchi backstage as both men would be deep in conversation despite Fuchi looking absolutely exhausted.


    Match Forty Nine: Kenzo Suzuki vs. Angelico
    - Kenzo Suzuki was at one time an established name in American households as during his tenure with the WWE by way of his one time WWE Tag Team title reign with Renee Dupree. These days Suzuki has been working hard as part of the AJPW roster although as of late he has been looking as if he is on his last legs. Angelico on the other hand has been doing his best as of late to prove that African wrestlers are more than capable of bring their best to the big league. It seemed though that Suzuki seemed to benefit from being back in North America as he would arguably pick up a shock victory by catching Angelico as he springboarded off the ropes and bringing him down to the canvass with a heavy handed Chokeslam. The victory clearly meant a lot to Suzuki who would drop onto his knees and actually looked as his eyes were watering as the referee raised his arm to acknowledge Suzuki's victory.


    March Fifty: Ethan Carter III vs. Nick Jackson
    - EC3 would make his way out from the back in a foul mood cutting promo making it clear that he was deeply insulted that he was having to take part in the first round of 'The 180' when so many others had been offered first round byes. Nick Jackson had clearly heard enough of Carter's whining as he would bring his rant to by kicking him straight in the jaw with a Superkick! The match between both men from the start would have Carter on the back foot as he would struggle to recover from that initial kick and it was clear that Jackson had no intention of letting off the pedal. Jackson though started to look tired rather quickly as without his brother he was unable to tag out, and it was clear that he was struggling to wrestle without his partner at his side. Ethan would seem to pick up on this and would capitalise by slowly starting to dissect Jackson only to finish him off by hanging him up on the turnbuckle and wiping him out with the One Percenter . Carter would look to cause further damage to Nick only for Jackson's brother Matt to save his brother and pull him out of the ring much to Carter's fury.


    Match Fifty One: Marshe Rockett vs. Jiro Kuroshio
    Marshe Rockett is a man that arguably has a bright future ahead of him, although some observers have made the point that if Rockett ever wants to reach the heights of success then maybe Impact Wrestling might not be the best place for him. At the same time Jiro has been slowly making a name for himself in Japan with Wrestle-1 and his involvement in the tournament will very much be his first major outing in America. Both men would put on an entertaining contest although it was clear that both men still had a lot to learn before becoming more established names in the industry. When push came to shove it was Jiro who would manage to secure the victory, although Marshe looked bitterly disappointed by his journey coming to an end before it had even really begun.


    Match Fifty Two: Yuji Okabayashi vs. B.J. Whitmer
    - The contest between Okabayashi and Whitmer would be the final match in the first round of 'The 180' and both men would fight with an extra intensity knowing what was truly at stake. Whitmer had been involved with ROH since its inception and despite retiring once had returned back to the sport and had arguably created more waves in his second stint with the company. The slightly younger Okabayashi has yet to make a name for himself on the major stages and it was clear that Global Force Wrestling would not be the arena for Yuji to make his fortune as B.J. would claim the victory and bring an end to the first round of the competition.


    - Global Commissioner Phillip 'CM Punk' Brooks would come to the ring and address the fans now that the first round of 'The 180' had reached its conclusion. Brooks would congratulate the twenty six winners from the first round and wish them the best of luck in the next round of the tournament. Brooks would then confirm that the second round would compromise of eleven night of actions with Global Force Wrestling travelling into Cananda, before returning to the States by travelling down the West coast before finishing off the second round south of the border in Mexico. Punk would once again wish all remaining 128 wrestlers the best of luck in 'The 180' Second Round that would start next week.

    Quick Results:
    Ricochet def. Fuchi
    Suzuki def. Angelico
    Carter def. Jackson
    Kuroshio def. Rockett
    Whitmer def. Okabayashi

    Global Force Wrestling Round Two - Night One


    Night One: March 20th 2017 - Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada


    Match One: Delirious vs. Douglas Williams
    - The first match of Round Two of 'The 180 Invitational' would see two men who both had been given first round byes face each other. Delirious a highly unique character known for communicating in gibberish, shouts and grunts and extremely popular in ROH and Chikara would find himself up against an elderly statesman Douglas Williams who made an impression in Impact Wrestling but is mostly known for his work in Europe and is always popular with the British fans. The match wasn't the greatest match the world has ever seen, but both men's unique personalities were given enough room to shine through. It would be Williams who would become the first man to qualify for Round 3 and he would do so by landing onto Delirious with his infamous double knee drop the 'Bomb Scare'.


    Match Two: Vinny Marseglia vs. Yutaka Yoshie
    - The second contest would see Yoshie in his second match of the tournament (having managed to Noboru Kurakawa on the first night of Round One) facing Vinny Marseglia who would find himself in his first match of the tournament. Vinny has been involved in the wrestling industry for just over a year, but it was clear that the fans were heavily invested in a man that has already drawn comparisons with Jeff Hardy and Sterling James Keenan. Marseglia who is part of the new version of The Kingdom fought in an impressive and from start to finish looked the stronger of the two men. Yoshie offered some comedy spots, but it became evidently clear that there was only ever going to be one winner.


    Match Three: Kenzo Suzuki vs. Jeff Jarrett
    - Questions regarding the legitimacy of the randomised draw were brought up once more as Suzuki who had wrestled only a few days ago on the final day of Round One found himself pitted against former Global Force owner Jeff Jarrett. This match-up led speculation to arise during the match from those fans in attendance and the Youtube comments section after the matter of fact that Suzuki was being used as a sacrificial lamb. On this basis everyone would be left shocked when Suzuki nailed Double J with Hagakure II to claim his second win in as many shows and send the former owner packing.


    Match Four: Mahabli Shera vs. Lionheart
    - For the second time two men who had been granted first round byes would be pitted against each other. Shera who since joining Impact Wrestling has arguably become the face of Indian in regards to professional wrestling. Shera's opponent was Lionheart who is most known for his tenure with Insane Championship Wrestling. The match was fairly even although it was Shera who would advance to the next round. A business orientated man would have made the assumption that Shera winning was motivated by wanting Global Force Wrestling to create some strong links with the West Asian wrestling community.


    Match Five: Eli Drake vs. Brian Cage
    - Cage had looked very impressive in Round One despite seeming to not want to cause to much damage to Japanese great Nishimura. A dominant Cage though had absolutely no worries about demolished the much younger Eli Drake and would do so in a very telling manner. Cage would make light work of Drake and would finish off the man who had been given a bye with the Drill Claw to finish off his opponent in a very one sided manner. It was clear that whoever found themselves facing Brian in Round Three was going to have a very difficult job on their hands.


    Match Six: Aron Rex vs. Tyler Daniels
    - Aron Rex who was another man whom had been forced to take part in Round One would find himself competing against virtually unknown Australian Tyler Daniels (GFW forging a link with Riot City Wrestling). The Canadian fans would cheer for Daniels but rather than acknowledge him for his wrestling name would simply refer to him as 'JOBBER' and it seemed that Daniels would live up to his name as it would be Rex who would take the victory by smashing his elbow into Daniels skull.

    Quick Results:
    Williams def. Delirious
    Marseglia def. Yoshie
    Suzuki def. Jarrett
    Shera def. Lionheart
    Cage def. Drake
    Rex def. Daniels

    Global Force Wrestling Round Two - Night Two


    Night Two: March 22nd 2017 - Ottawa, Ontario, Canada


    Match Seven: Sojiro Higuchi vs. Zak Sabbath
    - Wrestle-1 star Sojiro Higuchi would find himself being challenged by the unique style by Australian Zak Sabbath (who has been working for Riot City Wrestling for most of his career). Simply put Higuchi was far more talented of the two in what was a fairly cut and dry contest for the young Japanese star. Sojiro would claim the victory by locking Sabbath in a Crossface that would force Zak to tap out relatively quickly.


    Match Eight: Joe Hendry vs. Dean Brady
    - It seemed that Riot City Wrestling (of Australia) were be given some good representation as Dean Brady would also find himself in a massive match against Scottish talent Joe Hendry. Both men would tangle in what would prove to be an interesting contest, in which Hendry would attempt to frustrate Brady with his own personal touch of comedy which massively frustrated Brady which was actually putting Hendry at an advantage. The 'Local Hero' would claim the victory by tying Brady in the Hendry Lock and forcing the Australian to tap out (which was proving to be a pattern for the wrestlers from down under.


    Match Nine: Gregory Helms vs. Jay Lethal
    - There is no denying that the contest between Helms and Lethal was highly fast paced and full of exciting spots. Both Gregory and Jay throughout their careers have proven countless times that you don't need to be the biggest guy to put performances that can blow off the roof. Helms would as you might expect be met with Hurricane chants, which would result in Lethal being mocked in much the same way for his former TNA gimmick of the Black Machismo. The match would end on a high point though as Jay would nail Helms with the Lethal Combination to pick up the W and book himself a place in Round Three.


    Match Ten: Frankie Kazarian vs. Hangman Page
    - The contest between Kazarian and Page was a match that would might have expected to see at a Ring of Honor event, so for any fans in attendance they were in for quite a treat if they weren't regular viewers of ROH. It was clear that Frankie Kazarian had absolutely no love for Page and the Bullet Club and as the ultimate insult would take hold of Page's jacket and pretend to urinate on it which would not only result in a raging page, but also lead to any fans of the B.C. making it quite clear what they thought about Frankie's actions. Much to everyone's surprise it would be Page that would manage to secure the victory and eliminate Kazarian from 'The 180' by nailing him with the Rite of Passage!


    Match Eleven: Trent Seven vs. Simon Diamond
    - 'The 180 Invitational' for many wrestling fans is a dreamscape in that so many matches that would never have happened have now been given a platform to take place. The contest between young English talent Trent Seven and veteran Simon Diamond was certainly one of these contests. For most people Diamond was considered retired, so even though Simon looked slow and sluggish the fans in attendance were lucky see Diamond compete in a ring for the first time in seven years. Seven though would take by the horns as he would show in person what it means to be the Moustache Mountain as he would end Diamond with the Seventh Heaven.



    Match Twelve: Chessman vs. Masao Inoue
    - The final match of the night would see Chessman make light work of NOAH's Inoue. The Triple A had put on a masterclass against Bram in the first round and would light work of Inoue who just wasn't up to Chessman's standard. One thing can be said with full certainty and that was that the Ottawa fans had been treated to truly terrific night of wrestling.

    Quick Results:
    Higuchi def. Sabbath
    Hendry def. Brady
    Lethal def. Helms
    Page def. Kazarian
    Seven def. Diamond
    Chessman def. Inoue

    Global Force Wrestling Round Two - Night Three


    Night Three: March 24th 2017 - Calgary, Alberta, Canada


    Match Thirteen: Barreta vs. Super Dragon
    - Super Dragon has started the competition in Round One by defeating DJ Z, although the point must be made that his second round match against Barreta was a far more competitive contest. Many consider Barreta as a WWE reject, but rather than falter since leaving the #1 promotion in the world Trent has only gone from leaps to bounds and won a number of different titles. The first match of the night in Calgary would see both men have some highlight worthy spots. Barreta would connect to the back of Dragon's head with the Gobstopper, whilst Super Dragon would hit Trent with the Barry White Driver! The match would come to an end after some chain wrestling would result in Super Dragon hitting the Dragon Bomb to win the match.


    Match Fourteen: Chris Ridgeway vs. Averno
    - Both Ridgeway and Averno both had victories in the first round and so had already proven to themselves that they were capable of winning. In an International contest between the United Kingdom and Mexico. The value of GFW's relationship with AAA arguably might have led to behind the scenes reasoning behind Averno winning the contest, but the match itself was of a high calibre and both men looked strong throughout the contest. Averno would win by way of the Devil's Wings and it must be noted that Ridgeway looked less than pleased to have been knocked out of 'The 180'.


    Match Fifteen: Thunder Frog vs. Matt Cross
    - In Round One Thunder Frog had shocked everyone by winning the match despite his massively gimmicky character. This however would not be the case as the Frog found himself face-to-face with Matt Cross. Cross would win the contest within just a few minutes by wiping out the Frog with a lariat only to follow it up by diving off the turnbuckle and landing on Thunder Frog with the Death From Above!


    Match Sixteen: Bengala vs. James Storm
    - Mexico was getting a lot of representation in 'The 180' and Bengala's inclusion showed that not only was Triple A being represented by CMLL. Bengala would in many ways surprise the fans by taking James Storm like a neurosurgeon dissecting as a brain as he would work down Storm until he was no longer able to stand before grabbing hold of the Cowboy and throwing him down to the mat before forcing him to submit with the Satellite Octopus Clutch!


    Match Seventeen: Daisuke Sekimoto vs. Lucas Archer
    - WCPW's Lucas Archer had an impressive victory in the first round and the young Brit would continue his run of form with a second victory over Sekimoto. A number of WCPW chants were heard throughout the contest, which was certainly a sign of good things to come for GFW in regards to showcasing International talent from all corners of the globe. Archer would celebrate the victory by taking hold of a Union Jack an wrapping it around his shoulders as he would take a lap of honour around the win, talking a number of the fans that were surrounding the ring.


    Match Eighteen: Chris Masters vs. Davey Richards
    - The final match of the night was a classic between Chris Masters and Davey Richards. Both men were pretty focused in their approach to the match and it was clear that both were playing heel characters, with both men bending the rules whenever possible. The match was wrapped up when Masters grabbed hold of Richards and forced him to tap out whilst holding him in the Master Lock!

    Quick Results:
    Dragon def. Barreta
    Averno def. Ridgeway
    Cross def. Frog
    Bengala def. Storm
    Archer def. Sekimoto
    Masters def. Richards

    Global Force Wrestling Round Two - Night Four


    Night Four:
    March 27th 2017 - Victoria, British Columbia, Canada


    Match Nineteen: Bobby Lashley vs. Lio Rush
    - Both Bobby and Lio had been involved in two impressive match in the first round over Matt Taven and Suwama respectively. When both men came face to face it was clear that Bobby was the far more dangerous of the two and within minutes Lashley would crunch Rush in half with a Spear only to wrap himself around Lio and force the Young Lion to tap by locking in the Anaconda Vice!


    Match Twenty: La Parka vs. AR Fox
    - La Parka had been successful in the first round by defeating Aiden O'Shea and the Mexican legend would have no real difficulty in gaining a victory over AR Fox. Parka would show that despite his age he was more than capable of using the ring to his full advantage and would despite his seniority would leap off the turnbuckle and connect with the 'La Parkinator' to claim the victory and earn a sport in the third round.


    Match Twenty One: Will Ospreay vs. Joseph Connors
    - Ospreay was without a doubt involved in one the better matches in the first round of 'The 180 Invitational' but the second round contest was a slightly flatter fair as Ospreay would come to face with a man he would have found inside a WCPW locker-room. Connors would put on a good showing and it was clear that he had a lot to bring to the table although at the same time Ospreay is in different class to a large majority of those currently working in the indies. Will would as many would of expected claim the victory and would do so by nailing Connors with the Essex Destroyer. After the match Ospreay would just stand in the ring and spread open his arms, as if he was basking in his own glory.


    Match Twenty Two: Drake Younger vs. Joey Ryan
    - If you want to talk about wrestlers more irrelevant that James Ellsworth, Drake Younger fits the bill. Younger was such a lack lustre wrestler than more recently he had found himself working for the WWE as a referee. It seemed that a pay cheque even if it was just for one match was enough of a motivation to bring him out of retirement. It was clear that Joey Ryan had absolutely no problem in feeding on Drake like a shark eating on an easy kill and would make winning look almost to easy. Despite everything Younger had a massive smile across his face after the contest, despite the beating he had received.


    Match Twenty Three: Johnny Mundo vs. Kento Miyahara
    - Johnny Mundo had booked himself into the second round with a victory over Caprice Coleman and found himself pitted up against first round bye Miyahara. Kento is one of AJPW brighter young talents with notable achievement taking place in early 2016 when he became the youngest ever Triple Crown Heavyweight Champion. Kento would bring a real challenge to the table for Mundo although Johnny never looked like losing. That being said Kento almost claiming a victory by hitting Mundo with the Breaking Heart that would result in a near fall. Miyahara throughout the contest was aware of just how dangerous Mundo was in regards to his aerial assault, but would be caught off guard as Miyahara would have a boot smashed directly into his face with a perfectly placed Super Kick that would send Kento to the canvass and incapacitate him long enough to earn the three count.


    Match Twenty Four: Drago vs. Alex Shelley
    - Drago and Shelley would be given the honour of being part the final Global Force Wrestling match in Canada and the local Victorian fans would not be disappointed. Shelley who is known for his time in both TNA and New Japan would meet a worthy opponent in Mexican Drago. Both men would have a very back and forth contest although it would the Lucha Underground favourite Drago that would qualify for the third round by hitting Shelley with the Flip Driver!


    Global Force Wrestling co-owner Ric Flair would make his way out from the back and receive a massive ovation from the fans. Ric would congratulate everyone for earning a place in Round Three and also wish everyone who was yet to compete the best of luck ahead of their matches in Round Two, Ric would make it clear that both himself and Sting had been extremely pleased on how the fans had responded to the company's time in Canada. Flair would then make it clear that he was looking forward to the promotion returning to the States where they would have three dates as the company wold travel down the west coast with scheduled event in that states of Washington, Oregon and California before ending Round Two with four dates in Mexico.

    Quick Results:
    Lashley def. Rush
    Parka def. Fox
    Ospreay def. Connors
    Ryan def. Younger
    Mundo def. Miyahara
    Drago def. Shelley

    Re: Global Force Wrestling: A New Hope

    Tournament seems to be running along rather solidly without being anything outstanding. I will mention that with such little information regarding some of the lesser known guys, it’s hard to really care about them with so many different wrestlers involved in this tournament. Anyway, figured I’d take a look at the most recent show...

    Lashley is looking like an ABSOLUTE beast so far but doesn’t strike me as somebody who would win a tournament like this, due to the amount of ‘better’ wrestlers involved. It’ll be a big coupe for whoever eventually beats him though, I have no qualms with him looking this good.

    La Parka definitely brings back some childhood memories of the WCW Cruiserweight Division. He’s a little older, so what? He clearly still has it, however unless his age is going to be used in some sort of angle, you don’t need to keep reminding us of it. Just focus on what actually occurs in the match.

    Again, a pretty stock standard result with Ospreay getting the victory. I hope you didn’t waste all of the surprises in round one.

    Joey Ryan was obviously beating the WWE referee. No complaints.

    Johnny Mundo never looked like losing as well... I’m noticing a theme of A LOT of uncompetitive matches which doesn’t really suit this tournament type set up, imo.

    Drago/Shelley would have been match of the night from the sounds of things. It’s good to see that we at least got a quality main event.

    Marked for the Flair appearance at the end as well, even if everything he said was pretty basic.

    I think I’d recommend you looking at Natty’s thread and the way he writes his tournament matches. Even though it’s a tournament, he gives background on the wrestlers or there is some sort of previous interaction between the guys which makes the matches feel important. With a lot of your tournament matches being squashes, which I guess was bound to happen with the size of the tournament, it is making things a little hard to get into. I’m hoping the tournament competitiveness really picks up, and you maybe even give us a little more with your writing for the future rounds. The concept and the talent you’re working with has potential but I think some fine tuning is needed.

    Global Force Wrestling Round Two - Night Five


    Night Five: March 29th 2017 - Seattle, Washington


    Match Twenty Five: Space Monkey vs. Davey Boy Smith, Jr.
    - As GFW returned to the States the night would begin with a match between the unique Space Monkey and Davey Boy Smith, Jr. Space Monkey's victory in the first round had come by way of protest as Wolfgang had refused to fight the man dressed like a monkey. Space Monkey would find himself against second generation superstar Davey Boy Smith, Jr and the match was interesting to say the very least. The fans in the arena would make it evidently clear that they wanted Monkey to win which would only lead to Sith getting extremely ticked off . On the other side of things Space Monkey wanted to have nothing to do with the fans and every time they cheered for him, Space Monkey would flip off the fans making it clear just exactly what he thought of them. The match would end as Davey Boy would botch an attempt of locking Money in a Camel Clutch which would lead to DBS being sent first face into the canvass with a Full Nelson Facebuster!


    Match Twenty Six: MOOSE vs. Lancy Hoyt
    - Both MOOSE and Hoyt had dominant victories in the first round and it became very clear that Hoyt wasn't going to let MOOSE run over him in the same way he had demolished Missile Assault Ant. Hoyt would do his best to make sure that all fighting remained in a confined space in order to prevent MOOSE from building up speed (as this was where he was most dangerous). Hoyt would employ a number of moves from his arsenal including a range of powerslams from scoop to sidewalk variations. Hoyt though would slip up as he would mistime a double knee smash that would result in MOOSE picking up Lance and tossing him into the turnbuckle. Lance was clearly feeling dizzy on his feet and this was the opening that MOOSE needed to bounce off the ropes and cut through Hoyt with the Hitstick which had so much power behind it, that it wasn't at all shocking that Lance didn't get back up onto his feet until long after MOOSE and finished celebrating his victory.


    Match Twenty Seven: Jimmy Havoc vs. Broken Matt
    - If you ever wanted two men with beyond normal mental states to be put in the same match, then look no further than the contest between Jimmy Havoc and Broken Matt. The only sore point of this match-up would be that only one of the two would be advancing to the next round. Jimmy an ever popular figure within the British wrestling scene would be violent and brutal with all of his attacks whilst the crowd would just be in awe of the broken brilliance which Hardy brought with him to the table. Both men put on a true match of the ages as the contest would go on well beyond the ten minute mark. A number of great spots would take place including Havoc drilling Hardy with the Roaring Elbow and Go Home Driver as well as Matt handing down his own medicine including a number of Russian Legsweeps and Forearm Smashes not to mention a few incident of biting. Hardy would end up battling with Havoc on top of the turnbuckle and send both of them off the height down onto the mat with the Twist of Hate to seal the deal and advance into the third round.


    Match Twenty Eight: Atsushi Onita vs. Ricky Marvin
    - There is no denying that Onita was acting as a massive draw and despite his seniority looked in great shape. Marvin however looked sloppy to look the very least and it didn't take much for Onita to take hold of Marvin and throw him down to the canvass with the Thunder Fire Powerbomb in a contest that would see the Japanese legend advance to next round of 'The 180 Invitational'.


    Match Twenty Nine: Adam Cole vs. Matt Jackson
    - The pitting of two members of the Bullet Club quashed any claims of the tournament being rigged in favour of certain wrestlers, although it was clear that Matt Jackson was less than pleased with GFW about having to fight his fellow stablemate. Adam Cole on the other hand had his eyes solely on the prize of winning the tournament and would catch Jackson out by charging forward and knocking him off his a Super Kick and if by some sweet irony manage to earn a pin-fall within the first thirty seconds of the contest. To add insult to injury Cole would stand over Jackson's body and proceed to tell him to 'Suck It'.


    Match Thirty: Luke Santamaria vs. Chris Sabin
    - Riot City Wrestling (Australia) would offer another member of their roster as tribute as it seemed almost certain that that he was going to fall at the first hurdle as he found himself going head to head with Motor City Machine Gun Chris Sabin. Sabin would have dominant spells for most of the match only to be cut off guard completely as he was dropped with a heavy footed Big Boot to wrap up the evening's proceedings.

    Quick Results:
    Space Monkey def. Smith, Jr.
    MOOSE def. Hoyt
    Broken Matt def. Havoc
    Onita def. Marvin
    Cole def. Jackson
    Santamaria def. Sabin

    Global Force Wrestling Round Two - Night Six


    Night Six:March 31st 2017 - Portland, Oregon


    Match Thirty One: Maunakeea Mossman vs. Australian Suicide
    - Mossman's victory in the first round over Andrew Everett sent a clear message to everyone else involve in the tournament that the AJPW wrestler was going to be a serious contender in 'The 180' and it would become clear from the start of the contest that Mossman had no intention of going anywhere, anytime soon. That being said Australian Suicide put on a good performance, although he brought nothing to the table that really surprised Maunakeea who would claim victory be slamming Suicide down to the canvass with H50 to book his place in the third round. After the contest Mossman would take to the microphone and in broken English would make it clear that he was full committing himself to Global Force Wrestling and every intention of becoming the first GFW Champion by winning the entire competition.


    Match Thirty Two: Johnny Moss vs. Cody Rhodes
    - 'The American Nightmare' would receive a massive ovation as he made his way out from the back and it was clear by the look on Brit Johnny Moss' face that he was less than thrilled to be pitted against Cody so early on in the tournament. Rhodes would as you might have imagined would seem to toy with Moss, like a kitten playing with his food and would proceed to end Moss with the Cross Rhodes! Rhodes would soak up in the cheers and chants from the fans as he would proceed slowly towards the back.


    Match Thirty Three: Liam Slater vs. Mark Briscoe
    - In terms of interesting contests the match-up between young British worker Liam Slater and Mark Briscoe was certainly the most interesting. Liam entered the contest with nothing to lose, whilst Briscoe seemed wholly agitated that he was facing to wrestler against a virtually unknown man although it wasn't clear that if Briscoe was annoyed that he didn't know approach the match or whether he was simply annoyed that he was facing men that arguably had been scraped from the bottom of the barrel. Briscoe would claim victory, although after the match looked intent on doing some serious damage to Slater and would do this by sending Slater through a table with the Thunder Slam!


    Match Thirty Four: Kushida vs. Kongo Kong
    - Kushida is without a doubt one of the most talented junior heavyweights currently in professional wrestling, but when a man of his frame found himself against Kongo Kong it wasn't massively surprising that he found himself running into a brick wall. Kongo would make light work of Kushida and toss Kushida around the ring like a rag-doll before finally rubbing out the Time Splitter by lifting him up above his head and bringing him down hard to the canvass with the Hellfire! Kongo would beat his chest like a wild animal that was still thirsty for more blood before charging forward and cutting Kushida in two with The Cracker-Jack to bring an end to the demolition of Kushida.


    Match Thirty Five: Luke Hawx vs. Ethan Carter III
    - A number of what the fans and smart marks as 'squash' matches have seemingly being take place through a number of the 1st and 2nd round match in 'The 180 Invitational' and it would become apparent fairly early on that Hawx was going to get wiped clean off the map by EC3 as the slightly larger Hawx would be left shocked as he would be beaten up and torn apart by EC3 who would win the contest with the Once Percenter!


    Match Thirty Six: Obariyon vs. Mark Andrews
    - The main event of the evening was certainly an interesting encounter as Obariyon and Andrews would lock up in a truly horrific contest in which both men would push each other to their outer limits. Both men actually at some point busted each other open and would both be bleeding from their heads, with Obariyon bloods actually blending into his face paint. The blood seemed to get into Andrews eyes which would blind him leading him to stumble into Obariyon grasp who would plant Andrew to the floor with the Backcracker!

    Quick Results:
    Mossman def. A.Suicide
    Rhodes def. Moss

    Briscoe def. Slater
    Kong def. Kushida
    ECIII def. Hawx
    Obariyon def. Andrews

    Global Force Wrestling Round Two - Night Seven


    Night Seven: April 3rd 2017 - San Francisco, California


    Match Thirty Seven: El Ligero vs. Mark Haskins
    - The opening contest would feature two Brits that have only recently started to knock on the door of the International scene. Haskins who claimed a first round victory over Fire Ant has been making sporadic appearances for Pro Guerrilla Wrestling, whilst first round bye El Ligero has previously spent some time in Japan but would clearly welcome a big break in America. Haskins would play a devilish heel in the contest and rake eyes and pull off less than above board moves in order to try and gain an unfair advantage over El Ligero. Ligero would show his resilience however and proceed to win the match by hitting Haskins with the C4L!


    Match Thirty Eight: Sonjay Dutt vs. BT Gunn
    - Neither Dutt nor Gunn had taken part in the first round and it was clear that both men wanted to start off their competition with a bang. Dutt is most famously known for his time with TNA would face an interesting opponent in Gunn who has recently building quite a following in the United Kingdom. Dutt would attempt to pull off some high flying energetic spots fairly early into the contest, and it seemed as though was pushing out the boat a little too early as a number of misses would dampen Sonjay's spirits and also knock the wind of of him. This would give Gunn enough room to weaken Dutt enough to claim a victory without any particular skill or style in to his victory.


    Match Thirty Nine: Sha Samuels vs. Jessie Godderz
    - Another contest featuring two men that had been given first round byes saw the UK's Sha Samuels facing Impact Wrestling adonis Jessie Godderz. Jessie would hold nothing back in the match although as a wise man once said 'a punch is only as powerful as the man that throws it' and Godderz would fail to hit the mark. Samuels on the other hand would show exactly what it meant to be a 'geezer' and would finish up the contest by taking hold of Jessie and finishing him off with an Exploder Suplex! After claiming victory Sha would celebrate by doing a little dance with his braces although noticeably not smiling at all whilst doing it.


    Match Forty: Crazzy Steve vs. Bobby Fish
    - It seemed that a lot of first round byes had been treated to kicking off their tournament in San Francisco although to make things even more interesting the contest between Steve and Fish had resulted in another TNA vs. ROH situation. Both men would put on an interesting contest although at times it was clear that Crazzy Steve was freaking out Fish as he would whisper things in Fish's ear and actually convulse his whole body whilst holding Fish in various submissions. The match would end with Fish dropping Steve in his tracks by connecting with his spin kick finishing move Sleeps With The Fishes!


    Match Forty One: Silver Ant vs. Atsushi Sakai
    - As of late Sakai has been spreading his wings since leaving AJPW and being doing a number of different jobs as a freelancer and it seemed that Global Force Wrestling had been one of many promotions to take an interest in the Japanese wrestler. Colony member Silver Ant offered up a comedy element to the contest, although it was clear that Sakai had no time for such shenanigans and would end Silver Ant's hopes of advancement by nailing Silver Ant with the LAT (a variation of a piledriver) that was all that was needed to book Atsushi a place in Round Three.


    Match Forty Two: Raymond Rowe vs. Drew Galloway
    - Going into the evening's main event the fans were with the knowledge that there were only twenty three places left in Round 3 of 'The 180 Invitational'. War Machine's Rowe seemed to realise that he had a difficult task on his hand as there is no denying that Galloway is one of the most under-rated wrestlers currently working in the indies. It must be noted that Rowe looked almost out of place standing next to Galloway who actually made Rowe look short in comparison. Galloway would book himself a place in final 64 by sealing the deal with the Claymore!

    Quick Results:
    El Ligero def. Haskins
    Gunn def. Dutt
    Samuels def. Godderz
    Fish def. Steve
    Sakai def. S. Ant
    Galloway def. Rowe

    Global Force Wrestling Round Two - Night Eight, Nine, Ten & Eleven



    The final four days of Round 2 took place in Mexico with events taking place on April 5th, 7th, 8th and 9th (in Mexicali, Cancun, Tijuana and Mexico City respectively.)

    On the first night of the Mexico Tour in Mexicali; six men would earn their place in in the next round of ‘The 180 Invitational. Early victories would come by way of Frightmare defeating El Hijio de Pirata Morgan and El Mesias defeating Sebastian. As the night escalated Joe Coffey would claim an important victory in his career by eliminating B.J. Whitmer from the tournament, whilst Dalton Castle and ‘his boys’ would entertain everyone in Mexicali by controlling a contest and ending Jigsaw’s chances of further glory. Japanese veteran Kensho Obayashi would run a train through Dean Allmark and finish off the young Brit by pulverising him with the Jackhammer! The final contest of the night would see young talent Jamin Olivencia put on one hell of a performance but ultimately fall short as the unique Brother Nero would have his hand raised as the end of the evening to book himself a slot in the next round of the tourney.

    As Global Force Wrestling set-up shop in Cancun Silas Young,Jack Jester and Tyrus would each gain victories over Aero Star, El Hijo del Fantasma and Alex Gracie respectively.Chris Renfrew would put on a great performance and represent his home nation of Scotland incredibly well by claiming an important and decisive victory over Caleb Konley, whilst former WWE Cruiserweight and WWE Tag Team champion Paul London would show off his athletic prowess by removing Rhett Titus from contention. The main-event of the evening would be a contest of the past versus the present with Jay Briscoe arguably pulling off a career changing victory as he saw off former WWE employee Shelton Benjamin to bring the second night of the Mexican leg to a conclusion.

    On the penultimate day of Round Two, Cliff Compton would beat Kenny King & Rampage Brown defeated Braxton Sutter. The fans would be treated to a really good match in the middle of the show that was high intensity, high velocity and a lot of high impacts manoeuvres that would eventually see Zack Sabre, Jr. find himself cut from the contest by Japanese sensation Sanada who had only joined NJPW within the last eighteen months.Eddie Kingston would pick up a pretty clear cut victory over Matt Myers, whilst ‘The Villain’ Marty Scurll would round off the evening by eliminating Iestyn Rees from ‘The 180 Invitational’.

    The final event of Round Two would take place in the nation’s capital. Early victories would see Chuck Taylor beat Ophidian,Cheeseburger beat Jimmy Rave and Bullet Ant beat Texano, Jr. Martin Kirby would certainly entertain the local fans with his colourful use of the English language but when push shove would find himself on the losing side in a contest against Mike Bennett, although a point must be made that Maria Kanellis did get involved and did affect the outcome of the contest. Former MMA fight Josh Barnett would be the last man to be eliminated in Round Two, as Ricochet would become the final man to earn himself a spot in the third round.

    Global Commissioner Phillip “CM Punk” Brooks would round of the evening by announcing that all six scheduled dates of Round Three of ‘The 180 Invitational’ would take place in South America. Brooks would congratulate all remaining sixty four men for making it this far before changing the subject slightly. Brooks would announce that talks had already begun to find the best way of crowning the first ever GFW Nex*Gen Champion, but further information would be released at a later date.

    Below is a list of all the men that has qualified for Round Three of ’The 180 Invitational’
    :
    Douglas Williams, Vinny Marseglia, Kenzo Suzuki, Mahabli Shera, Brian Cage, Aron Rex, Sojiro Higuchi, Joe Hendry, Jay Lethal, Hangman Page, Trent Seven, Chessman, Super Dragon, Averno, Matt Cross, Bengala, Lucas Archer, Chris Masters, Lashley, La Parka, Will Ospreay, Joey Ryan, Johnny Mundo, Drago, Space Monkey, MOOSE, Matt Hardy, Atsushi Onita, Adam Cole, Luke Santamaria, Maunakee Mossman, Cody Rhodes, Mark Briscoe, Kongo Kongo, EC3, Obariyon, El Ligero, BT Gunn, Sha Samuels, Bobby Fish, Atsushi Sakai, Drew Galloway, Frightmare, El Mesias, Brother Nero, Joe Coffey, Kensho Obayashi, Dalton Castle, Silas Young, Jack Jester, Jay Briscoe, Chris Renfrew, Tyrus, Paul London, Cliff Compton, Rampage Brown, Sanada, Eddie Kingston, Marty Scurll, Bullet Ant, Mike Bennett, Ricochet, Cheeseburger and Chuck Taylor.


    * * * * * * * * * *
    For anyone that was wondering this project was so close to ending, but I changed my mind at the last possible moment. I decided to condense the remainder of Round Two, whilst I will continue to condense Round Three and Round Four before ending 'The 180
    Invitational' in the style that I had originally intended.

    Re: Global Force Wrestling: A New Hope

    Without trying to be overly negative, I have mixed feelings about this condensed format. I’m HAPPY to see this thread back as I was following, however I’m a little disappointed the tournament won’t continue to get the same treatment.

    With that being said, some really good results coming through in your most recent update, especially Jay Briscoe beating Benjamin.

    South America seems like a pretty cool spot for the Tournament to continue.

    Love the mystery behind the brackets so I can’t wait to see who meets moving forward. I’m also making a prediction, saying that Galloway will win the whole thing.

    Can’t wait for the next update, happy to have this back.

    Global Force Wrestling The 180 Invitational - Round Three



    With only sixty-four men left in ‘The 180 Invitational’ it was clear that South America was in for quite the treat with the Global Force Wrestling circus taking over the continent.

    Proceedings would begin on 17th April in Bogota, Columbia with the first match in Round 3 taking place between La Parka and Vinny Marseglia. La Parka as a representative of Triple A had already collected the scalps of Aiden O’Shea and AR Fox, whilst Marseglia had claimed a victory over Yutaka Yoshi. Both men would put on one hell of performance in front of the Colombian fans and it was clear that La Parka was massively over with the locals. This on its own was enough to annoy Marseglia who clearly wasn’t enjoying playing second fiddle. The match would eventually be won by La Parka who would nailed Vinny with a Spinning Headlock Elbow Drop!

    The second match between Maunakea Mossman and Sha Samuels wouldn’t be half as entertaining as the opening contest which is quite often the case when two men have to follow after a true wrestling legend. Mossman would present himself strong and do what was needed in order to advance to the next round. Shortly afterwards Will Ospreay would dominate Cheeseburger in an extremely one-sided that would see the 2016 winner of the NJPW Best of the Super Juniors take the victory. After the match Ospreay would take to the microphone and in broken Spanish inform everyone that ‘he was the face of GFW’.

    The fans were certainly be treated to some once in a lifetime contests as El Mesias would find himself facing Adam Cole. Both men think very highly of themselves, but showed each other very little respect. It was arguably for on this basis why Adam Cole didn’t seem as happy as arguably he should of done when he took the victory. BT Gunn would meanwhile defeat Doug Williams in an all British encounter with the night being rounded off with an all Lucha Underground affair taking place between Drago and Matt Cross, with masked Drago taking the victory and booking himself a spot in Round Four.

    The next scheduled event would happen in Lima, Peru on 18th April. Japanese great Atsushi Onita would continue to show that he was far from his expiry date by successfully eliminating Jay Lethal from the running. Onita would take to the microphone after the match and reveal that he would continue wrestling until he was beaten. Onita would reveal that the next time he lost he would officially retire and unlike previous occasion it would be his ‘true retirement’. The next contest would be a much more relaxed affair with Bullet Ant continuing to do his best to give a good account of Chikara by successfully beating WCPW roster member Lucas Archer.

    Before the next string of matches took place Kensho Obayashi, Atsushi Sakai and Sojiro Higuchi would come out from the back as a trio with all three men wearing identical Japanese vest tops with it being clear that they had all come to support each other. Unfortunately, Sakai and Higuchi would fall short in their contests to Mark Briscoe and Joe Coffey respectively. The Japanese trio would have something to show for their turnout, as Obayashi would put on a truly magnificent performance against the unique Chessman by continuing to show the GFW community why his nickname in Japan is the “God of Destruction”.

    The final match would be an interesting encounter between Dalton Castle and Cody Rhodes. Unlike previous opponents of Castle’s, Rhodes would not rise to the bait that ‘The Boys’ would bring to the table but at the first opportunity would scare them both enough to encourage them not to get involved in the match any further. Fighting on an even keel it was clear that Cody was far more talented than Dalton and would pick up the victory by hitting Dalton with the Cross Rhodes! After just two nights of action, there were now only twenty spots up for grabs in Round Five.

    As GFW crossed the border they would find themselves in Sao Paulo, Brazil on 20th April. Early contests in the evening would see Jack Jester beat Chuck Taylor, Ricochet defeat Rampage Brown and Drew Galloway come up trumps against Silas Young. The tell of the tape in the latter portions of the evening would feature to massive upsets or better put unexpected victories. The first would involve Mahabli Shera picking up an important W over Mike Bennett, which would be as a result of a backfired move from Bennett’s wife Maria. The second shock would be Trent Seven defeating Jay Briscoe although it must be noted that Seven would place his feet on the ring ropes in order to secure the victory, with the referee completely missing the illegal feet placing.

    The final match of the evening would a head turner as Bullet Club member Hangman Page would go to war with Marty Scurll. Both men would put on a match that would last well over fifteen minutes and it was clear that the Brazilian fans were enjoying what they were watching. The match would end with Scurll flying halfway across the ring and smash both his feet into Page’s head with a Missile Dropkick! After the match Marty would take hold of one of his umbrellas and proceed to slam it down repeatedly on the fallen Page before laughing only to open up the Umbrellas and reveal the ‘Bullet Club’ logo emblazoned on the umbrella.

    The promotion tour in South America had so far been a massive success and Round Four would pull into Rosario, Argentina on 21st April as another group of twelve men to be whittled down to six. Chris Masters would start off proceeding with a clear cut victory over Joey Ryan by locking in the Masterlock, whilst Kenzo Suzuki and Obayiron would also throw their names into the hat by defeating Eddie Kingston and Johnny Mundo respectively.

    CMLL’s Bengala would prove to be incredibly popular in Argentina and it was clear that the fans were extremely thrilled when Bobby Fish tapped out after being held in the Satellite Octopus Clutch! The same fans that had been cheering would soon be the same group of fans booing as Sanada would outdo Averno in order to advance in ‘The 180 Invitational’. The final contest of the evening was something that people might have found on their screens if they tuned in to watch an episode of Impact Wrestling. EC3 and Aron Rex would put on a fairly good contest, although it was clear that the native crowd weren’t all that keen on American wrestlers and had been very vocal about this throughout the night. Despite what the fans in attendance thought it would be Aron Rex that would pick up the win and earn himself a place in the final thirty-two.

    With only eight matches left in Round Four and only two days left on the tour, Saturday night’s action would take place 22nd April in Montevideo, Uruguay. The evening would begin with Pro Wrestling Guerrilla favourite Super Dragon defeating fellow luchador El Ligero in a match that would certainly wet the home fan’s appetites for more action. There can be no denying that ‘The 180 Invitational’ had played host to not just the serious but also the unique and different and so the contest between Paul London and Frightmare was certainly one of these ‘interesting’ matches which would eventually be won by Frightmare. One-sided victories would round off the night as Brian Cage was far too good for Luke Santamaria, whilst Lashley would absolutely destroy Chris Renfrew like a wrecking ball smashing through tissue paper to earn his spot in the next round of the competition.

    The final night of Global Force Wrestling’s time in South America took place on 23rd April in El Alto, Bolivia. Bolivia would play host to the Hardy Boyz as Broken Matt would claim a decisive victory over Joe Hendry, whilst Brother Nero would overcome all the odds in a truly gruelling battle to claim an important win over Kongo Kong. Arguably the biggest upset of the entire round if not the entire competition would be Space Monkey achieving a massive upset by defeating MOOSE, although the point must be made that Space Monkey rolled up MOOSE with a schoolboy pin only seconds after the former football player ran head first into ring post. The final match of the round would feature Tyrus absolutely savaging Cliff Compton and in doing so become the last man to qualify for Round Four.

    With all the matches in Round Three finished Co-Owner Steve Borden would make an announcement from the ring. Borden would announce that Round Four would take place in the Caribbean with three event scheduled to take place in Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica. Borden would then announce that the final four dates of ‘The 180 Invitational’ (following Round Four) would take place in Chicago, Illinois and New York City.

    Below is a list of all the men that has qualified for Round Four of ’The 180 Invitational’:
    La Parka, Maunakea Mossman, Will Ospreay, Adam Cole, BT Gunn, Drago, Atsushi Onita, Bullet Ant, Mark Briscoe, Joe Coffey, Kensho Obayashi, Cody Rhodes, Jack Jester, Ricochet, Drew Galloway, Mahabli Shera, Trent Seven, Marty Scurll, Chris Masters, Kenzo Suzuki, Obayiron, Bengala, Sanada, Aronx Rex, Super Dragon, Frightmares, Brian Cage, Lashley, Broken Matt, Brother Nero, Space Monkey & Tyrus.

    Global Force Wrestling The 180 Invitational - Round Four



    The remaining thirty-two men would only get a few days between round before GFW began their Caribbean journey April 26th in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. It would be revealed that all three members of the Bullet Club (Adam Cole, Cody Rhodes & Marty Scurll) would be wrestling tonight. Before either of the three wrestled, the first match of the night would also be the last match for one Atsushi Onita who would put on a really great showing but ultimately have no real response for the power and brutal strength that Tyrus was able to offer up, which at time could have been likened to a man trying to run through a brick wall. The first member of the ‘Bullet Club’ to represent the faction would be Adam Cole who would find out just how dangerous Maunakea Mossman was and despite bending the rules to suit his needs it just wasn’t enough as Mossman would advance to book himself a place in the final sixteen. The Club would continue to suffer defeat as the energetic Bengala would defeat new club members Marty Scurll leaving all the responsibility solely on Cody’s shoulders.

    There can be no denying that as the herd was thinning the quality of matches were greatly improving. BT Gunn and Kenzo Suzuki would prove to the entire wrestling world that you didn’t need to have learnt your craft in North America in order to put on one hell of a contest. Both men would really excite the locals in an extremely back and forth contest that would eventually be won Gunn who would bring an end to Suzuki’s dream with a well placed Superkick! The final contest of the night would see Lashley and Cody Rhodes go head-to-head in a truly memorable contest. Lashley would look impressive and it looked as if he was guaranteed a place in the next round if it hadn’t been for both Scurll and Cole showing up and distracting Lashley just as he was about to hit the Dominator. Instead, Scurll would distract the referee whilst Cole would low blow Lashley that would give Rhodes all the room he needed to hit the Cross Rhodes and become the fifth man to qualify for the next round.

    Round was all about island hopping and GFW would arrive in Higuey, Dominican Republic on April 28th for five more matches.The second of three Caribbean dates would begin with Chris Masters picking up a fairly easy win over Bullet Ant only to be followed by Trent Seven most likely taking part in the greatest match of his entire career even if it was a loss to Broken Matt. After the contest it was clear that Hardy was extremely impressed by Trent and both men would shake hands in the middle of the ring (the ultimate sign of respect). Other victories would see Obariyon pull off quite the upset by defeating Aron Rex whilst Sanada would continue his great run of form by eliminating Joe Coffey from ‘The 180 Invitational’.

    The final contest of the evening could easily have been the tournament grand final if the draw had played out differently, instead though Drew Galloway and Drago would meet each other knowing that only one of them was advancing any further. Throughout the contest Galloway would look to hit Drago with the Claymore, but on countless occasions the high impact kick wouldn’t hit the mark. Eventually, Drago would schedule the move only to catch hold of Galloway and stun everyone by decimating the Scot with a Flip Piledriver to take the victory and continue his journey in the tournament.

    The final leg of the Caribbean tour would occur April 29th in Kingston, Jamaicawith the final six spots in the next round up for grabs. Space Monkey who everyone will remember as the man that eliminated MOOSE would continue his winning ways despite all the odds and claim another impressive victory this time over Super Dragon. Ricochet would also claim a win over Mark Briscoe, as would La Parka over Frightmare.

    The contest between Brian Cage and Mahabli Shera was certainly a contest that would surprise a lot of people as many fans had expected Brian Cage to just walk the match without any real challenge given. Shera though would show just exactly why he was still part of the competition and would win the contest by nailing Cage with Sky High! Jack Jester and Will Ospreay would take part in an all British encounter with the the jet setting, trailblazing, kebab eating Ospreay claiming the win leaving just one spot still up for grabs in the next round. The final match would feature Brother Nero and Kensho Obayashi in a contest that would sum up what ‘The 180 Invitational’ had been all about so far. It was clear that Brother Nero was the person that everyone was rooting for, but like so many matches that have taken place in this competition it isn’t always the favourite that leaves with their hand held high as would be the case when it was Obayashi who was announced as the final man qualifying for Round Five.

    Global Commissioner Phillip “CM Punk” Brooks would reveal that the Round of 16 would take place over two nights in Chicago, Illinois on 5th & 6th May. Brooks would also reveal that over the two dates in Chicago six matches would take place comprising of eighteen men competing in triple threat matches with winners advancing with the aim of eventually becoming the first GFW NEX*GEN Champion. Brooks would make it clear that all eighteen men were men that had been involved in ‘The 180 Invitational’. Brooks would also reveal that future GFW show would be aired on livestream via Youtube.

    Below is a list of all the men that has qualified for Round Five of ’The 180 Invitational’:
    Tyrus, Maunakea Mossman, Bengala, BT Gunn, Cody Rhodes, Chri Masters, Broken Matt, Obariyon, Sanada, Drago, Space Monkey, Ricochet, La Parka, Mahabli Shera, Will Ospreay & Kensho Ospreay
