Return of the King
On August 2, 2014, fans in Cypress witnessed the most controversial title change ever at Lone Star Championship Wrestling. It was a rough night for Heavyweight Champion Scot Summers. Under the pretense of being a guest for Matt Riviera’s “Hotel Riviera” interview, Summers was brutally beaten down and injured by the Empire, an attack that would have surely been worse were it not for the intervention of Raymond Rowe, Chaz Taylor, Houston Carson and David Duperon.
As a result, Summers was in no shape to defend his title against Steve Anthony and CEO Tony Brooklyn begged him not to do so, but to no avail. Summers was challenged and he would answer the challenge, two-armed, one-armed, or none at all.
Valiantly he fought, but the injury, combined with the numbers of the Empire were too much for him. Trapped in an armbar in the center of the ring, Summers refused to tap out but Brooklyn could not stand by and allow a bonafied Lone Star legend risk permanent injury and the ruin of a stellar career and threw in the towel on Summers’ behalf. Anthony was now champion. Summers hasn’t been seen in a Lone Star ring since.
But the King of the Underground has returned to reclaim what was once his. And he’ll get that chance on Saturday, September 26 to do just that. In order to do so, however, he’ll need to dethrone the current titleholder John Saxon, the self-professed “Big Game Hunter” who has been dominant since defeating Carson on May 30.
Brooklyn is more than thrilled to see Summers back in Cypress.
“Scot’s return to Lone Star Championship Wrestling is long overdue,” he said. “Ever since I made the decision to throw in the towel on his behalf, it has haunted me. Scot may be the toughest wrestler I know, but at that moment, I thought he was subject to long term if not permanent injury. I remember saying ‘live to fight another day.’ I can’t change that decision, but I can give Scot what he truly deserves, which is a chance to regain the Lone Star Heavyweight Championship. Considering the physical and dominating manner in which John Saxon became champion and continues to defend the belt, at this moment in time I can’t think of a more worthy or deserving opponent than Summers.”
“It is been a long time since the fans of Lone Star and Cypress, Texas have seen me,” he said. “I haven’t been living like a king but rather a prisoner. A prisoner of unfinished business. John Saxon and I are no strangers to one another. He’s a great competitor and one tough hombre. Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.”
