Losing Friends

Before Losing Friends got started... Jesus Bryce was a guest on The "Or Else" Podcast to talk about the Flat Earth. This episode was the genesis of what would inevitably become The Losing Friends Podcast.

While we have covered a few other relative topics already, we feel it's important to get out there our stance on the Flat Earth vs The Globe/Heliocentric model as it will pertain to future topics.

We've tried replicating the episode since, but have decided the original really hit all the points we would want to make and in a more genuine conversation that up to that point we had not already had multiple times with one another.

So... With that being said, as part of the Losing Friends podcast in conjunction with The "Or Else" Podcast we present to you the original Flat Earth conversation we had joined by "Glober" John Wroblewski.

As always please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions, and ideas on the topic with us either in the comments or via DM.

6-Man Mayhem for the UGW Independent Championship!

JJ Garrett © vs. Joey Marx vs. Stephen Wolf vs. Barry Ryte vs. Insomnia vs. Matt Knicks

Current Independent Champion JJ Garrett’s 2016 started off by getting fired courtesy of match stipulation set forth by UGW owner Matt Bacaling after several failed attempts at winning the title that he currently holds. Returning as El Swaggo Loco, he was able to defeat former Independent Champion Draconis but was warned that if he ever took off his mask (which was see through anyway) that he would be banished forever…that was until Bacaling decided that him keeping up with this persona was unbeneficial to the company as a whole and allowed him to “remove” the mask.

Joey Marx is an UnderGround original, dating back to the company’s inception in 2008. After taking almost three years off from actively wrestling, he has returned to the company that he calls home. The high flyer will put his life on the line if it means advancing himself & entertaining the fans in the crowd. Marx is not the only man that sacrifices his body to get the job done…

Stephen Wolf calls himself “The Leader of The Pack.” Another high-flyer, he says that risk are meant to be taken…especially when it comes to winning championships. He & Joey Marx were successful as a team against The Will to Win in December, ending the year on a high note. Will this be Wolf’s singles break out performance in UGW?

“The Survivor” Barry Ryte is the first ever to be a triple crown champion (having been GALLI Champion, Junior Champion & Tag Team Champion) in GALLI Lucha Libre History, and is the current reigning GALLI Champion. Ryte was in the match that crowed the first ever Independent Champion and competed for the UGW Championship against GPA in a close yet losing effort. After being in a tag team for the later part of 2016, “The Survivor” looks to move into singles competition where he has obtained the most success. Will Ryte add the Independent Championship to his collection?

Insomnia teased the UnderGround fans for months with creepy videos until he finally revealed himself in December, making short work of his opponent in a victorious debut. Now, with the first match “jitters” out of the way, Insomnia is looking to become the Independent Champion in only his 2nd match EVER!

Matt Knicks is predominately known as a tag team wrestler all across the Midwest, having team with Chris Castro & Kenny Sutra as the Four Star Heroes & in the group known as BETA lead by Coach Joe. In October, Matt Knicks successful defeated Dick Justice in singles competition and has one other singles win in his UnderGround career where the losses are greater. Alas, having defeated the much larger Justice has given Knicks the green light to be considered an entrant to this match.

In what will be the biggest challenge to JJ Garrett’s title reign, will we see a new champion crowned or will the “King of Swag Style” walk (or crawl) away with the championship intact!?

Three Way Dance Tag Team Elimination Match!

The Super Tough Dudes vs. The N-Words vs. The Thrash Boys!

It has always been the mission of UnderGround to reestablish a strong, health, competitive tag team division and since the rebirth of UGW in 2014, strides are continually made to do just that. Not only with the UGW Tag Titles be on the line on February 2nd, but another tag team match will take place. It is not just any type of match but a Three Way Dance!

The N-Words spent the majority of 2016 as the UnderGround Wrestling Tag Team Champions before being upset at the end of the year by Superiority Complex. B-Ryce & A-Jizzle are now looking a position that neither have seen for 365+ days…at the end of the line.

The Thrash Boys (fka The Will to Win), Brendan Conway & Craig Mitchell, are also looking to recapture their spot in the tag team division, having reached the finals of the William L. Lavin Memorial Tournament – Tag Team Edition where they bested 2 other teams but lost in the finals to the current tag champs Nas & Gordon. Since then, they have been stuck in neutral and are hoping that 2017 is the year of THRASH!

The Super Tough Dudes are a new team to UGW. Pat Monix & Storm Grayson are both looking to get their feet wet in the tag division having competed in singles matches in the past with what would be a HUGE win against two tag teams that have been well established in UnderGround.

Battle of the Big Men!

“The King of Evil” Mojo McQueen battles the debuting Ruff Crossing!

In January of 2015, Mojo McQueen became the first every UnderGround Wrestling Champion by surviving a one night tournament where he defeated three men in three separate matches. He held that championship for 19 months before finally being bested by current champion GPA. Since that loss, things have been up and down for the former champion who is still trying to regain the footing he once had, having focused on tag team matches for the later part of 2016.

The self-proclaimed “Boozed & Tattoo’d dude with a rude attitude… head bangin’, body slammin’....Rock & rollin’…Tombstonin’…Rawbone Redneck SUM BITCH” Ruff Crossing makes his UnderGround debut at 1st Rule. The multi-time champion all across the Midwest is one of few people that do not fear the Voodoo wielding McQueen…and does not believe that McQueen has a chance in hell to defeat him.

UGW Tag Team Championship on the line!

Superiority Complex (C) defends against Zero Gravity

The rematch between the young upstart team and the rooted vets has become more interesting as Tony Nas & Roy "Flash" Gordon defeated the N-Words in December to become the NEW UGW Tag Team Champions.

Last time these two teams met it was a hard fought battle between the fast paced CJ Esparza & Brett Gakiya of Zero Gravity and strength & power of Superiority Complex which saw the stronger duo rise on that occasion. Now that ZG & SC have felt each other out, there is not telling the heights and lengths that both teams will go in order to walk away with the top prize in the UnderGround tag team division.

Congratulations to Kylie Rae on being featured in the most recent edition of PWI magazine for her match at Underground Wrestling against Thunder Rosa!

As one of the original students of our school, we could not be more proud of Kylie's success since she has joined Booker T's Reality of Wrestling!

Here is to many more features as her star continues to shine bright!
