Returns and Debuts Headline Lone Star on September 26
The return of two former Lone Star Heavyweight Champions after a year’s hiatus, a high profile debut, four championship matches and a grudge match 15 months in the making comprise a stellar card when Lone Star Championship Wrestling returns to the VFW in Cypress on Saturday, September 26.
Lone Star Heavyweight Title Match: Champion John Saxon vs. challenger Scot Summers
“The King of the Underground” Scot Summers returns to Lone Star to challenge for a title that many contend he never should have lost in the first place. On August 2, 2014, then-Lone Star Heavyweight Champion Summers was brutally attacked by the Empire prior to his defense against Steve Anthony. So badly injured was Summers that he defended against the advice of doctors, but his inability to protect his injuries forced CEO Tony Brooklyn to throw in the towel on Summers’ behalf, costing him the title. A year later, a new champion has risen, the self-professed “Big Game Hunter” John Saxon, who has been unstoppable since defeating Houston Carson for the title in May. However, even Saxon has never faced an animal quite like Scot Summers before.
Lone Star Women’s Title Match: Champion Barbi Hayden w/ The Empire vs. challenger Candice LeRae
Last month, fans witnessed perhaps the most shocking moment in the history of Lone Star Championship Wrestling when Barbi Hayden turned on longtime boyfriend Carson and joined the Empire. On September 26, just twelve days after passing three consecutive years of holding the Lone Star Women’s Championship. Before she get far into year four, however, she’ll have to face independent women’s wrestling sensation Candice LeRae, making her Lone Star debut.
Lone Star Cruiserweight Title Match: Champion “The Juicy One” Danny Ramons vs. challenger Americos
Two of the most popular stars on the Lone Star roster continue their competitive rivalry from 2014 when Americos returns to challenge Danny Ramons for the Lone Star Cruiserweight title. When these two have clashed in the past, the result has been nothing short of magic.
Lone Star Tag Team Title Match: Champions “The Empire” (“Loverboy” Matt Riviera and “Golden Boy” Greg Anthony) vs. challengers “The Originals” (“The Benchmark” Silky Baines and “Blacknificent” Luther Black)
With the addition of Hayden, the Empire appear to be stronger, and more devious, than ever. But while Matt Rivera appears to be focused on whatever game he’s playing Hayden, he and Greg Anthony better not overlook the challenge in front of them in Houston’s own Luther Black and Silky Baines, ready to capitalize on their first ever tag team title opportunity.
“Dirty” Andy Dalton vs. “One Man” Mike Dell
Also returning from a year-long hiatus is the only Triple Crown Winner in Lone Star Championship Wrestling history, “One Man” Mike Dell. He’ll be eager to put himself right back in championship contention, but to do that, he’ll need to get past “Dirty” Andy Dalton, making his Lone Star singles debut.
Chaz Taylor vs. Keith Lee
Chaz Taylor finally escaped the hell that was his eight-month indentured servitude to Prince Kanu last month, but his first challenge as a “free man” won’t exactly be heaven, as he faces the gargantuan-sized Keith Lee.
Hambone vs. “The Royal Warrior” Prince Kanu
The only reason Taylor was under the employ of Kanu to begin with was to rescue his friend and longtime partner Hambone, who in June of last year, signed an ill-advised contract that gave away his very freedom to the Nigerian royalty. After the losses piled up over recent months, Kanu, in a fit of rage, fired Hambone and Taylor, but in doing so left himself open to the retribution that Hambone has been waiting for.
