The Doctor is in this Saturday night at the South Broadway Athletic Club. The “Doctor of Desire,” Tom Prichard, will compete in a MMWA ring. Come see the former member of the Heavenly Bodies team up with “Gorgeous” Gary Jackson as they square off against Phil E. Blunt and the diabolical Lynn Mephisto!
Several things to look for in this match-up: Phil E. Blunt is back competing in the MMWA for the first time in months, Lynn Mephisto finally gets an opportunity to square off against Gary Jackson (albeit in a tag match), and of course, Tom Prichard is in the house.
Don’t know who Tom Prichard is, kiddos? You’re talking about a USWA and Smokey Mountain Wrestling icon. He has won singles and tag titles, including a two-month run as World Tag Team Champion with Chris Candido. This guy has the smarts, too. He’s an author, he conducts seminars across the country, and he has trained some of the biggest names in recent pro wrestling history: The Rock, Kurt Angle, Edge, Mark Henry and Dolph Ziggler.
If you still don’t trust the dude’s bonafides: CHECK. YOUR. HEAD.
And sure, we could say that’s your big match of the night. Hell, any promotion would be happy to tell you putting a wrestling aficionado like Tom Prichard in a match against a returning favorite like Phil E. Blunt and have them each team with the beloved Gary Jackson and his nemesis-at-the-moment Lynn Mephisto would be enough — BUT OH NO!
Your MMWA Heavyweight Champion, Brandon “Espy” Espinosa is putting the gold on the line against your Battle Royal Champion, Raphael King! Espy will need all his craftiness and cunning to escape Saturday night with the belt when he matches wits with wrestling’s renaissance man, the 6’5″, 225-pound Raphael King.
And MMWA Junior Heavyweight Champ A.J. Williams will be tested as he takes on “The Wild One” Andrew Wilder! Wilder picked up a win last month against Flamin’ Freddie Fury and says he’s ready to bring the damage against A.J. Williams, but the champ has got bad intentions as he aims to hold onto his newly-won title!
These three plus many more, this Saturday night at 8 P.M. at the South Broadway Athletic Club.
As always: Card is subject to change.
