New Wave has a big show coming up TOMORROW for the good folks in Spencer, Indiana. I took some time to get with some of the competitors to see how they felt going in to this stacked card.
Spencer’s own and 2016 Owen Valley High School graduate, Cole Radrick vs “Painted Warrior” Jason Levi
For this huge battle, we spoke to the hometown kid and local 6 foot Giant, Cole Radrick about the contest. This is what he had to say.
How do you feel about making your return home and your battle with Jason Levi?
“I’m very excited to come back and be an influential part of bringing New Wave Pro’s brand of wrestling to Spencer, Indiana for two shows, the one coming up this Saturday and on November 10th for this year, along with a full time schedule next year! It’s the first time I took a hand in the “behind the stage” portions of running shows and I absolutely love the madness of it. I worked very hard in trying to bring a different breed of wrestling to Spencer. The response from the Owen County community has been overwhelming! I rarely if ever get to wrestle in my hometown and against a guy like Jason Levi nonetheless. We tore it up in Spencer last time but I don’t feel like it’s going to be the same! With all the matches on the card being potential show stealers, I plan on making sure it’s a night nobody in attendance will ever forget.”
Bloomington’s own and graduate of Edgewood High School, “Proficient” Sage Philips vs “Lil Nyghtquil” Johnathan Wolf
We were able to get in touch with Sage about this contest.
What do you think you will need to do to take out Johnathan Wolf on Saturday night?
“I’ve wrestled Johnathan a number of times, he is quick in his stricken and very athletic but if I can keep him grounded I will keep the advantage. There is a reason being a high flyer comes with high risk. I’ll expose that risk come Saturday.”
**Fight Or Die Scramble Championship Match**
“Circle City Shooting Star” Miles Morales vs “Gifted” Chase Holiday vs Kidd Thunder vs Brayden Lee vs “Indestructible” Calvin Tankman
For this wild contest we spoke with talented young athlete “Gifted” Chase Holiday about his thoughts on this match and opponents.
Who do you think is the biggest threat in the scramble match?
“Oh man the biggest threat? It’s me, hands down. I am the most versatile in the match, & that’s not something I think it’s what I know. If I absolutely had to pick one, I’ll admittedly give it to Tankman. He’s been on a roll & doing it with the best wrestling all around the midwest with Michael Elgin. Of course I have to acknowledge that. So if I’m picking the biggest threat, it’s me. But second go me I’ll give it to Tankman.”
Matthew Galloways vs “Natural LightHeavyweight” Bradley Prescott IV
For our next match we were able to speak with both athletes.
What do you think you will need to do to be victorious over your opponent?
MG- “Well I think for me to be victorious over Bradley, I need to come out the gates strong. Like I know the fans at New Wave support me like I support them but the game plan is to come out strong and keep the pressure on him and come out with the W.”
BP4- “Need? Absolutely nothing I’ve been putting on great performance after great performance cuzzo! Matthew doesn’t know what’s coming at him Saturday, yes he has improved over the years and yes he has the experience over me but I’m called the natural light heavyweight for a reason! So he NEEDS to know that if he’s not careful I’m going to crack him open like a cold one!”
Levi Everett vs “The Outlaw” Jackson White
For this matchup I reached out to the ambassador of Levi Everett to see what his thoughts were on this contest.
How do you feel about Jackson White, and what do you think you need to do to be victorious Saturday?
Via Levi’s Ambassador: “Levi feels that Jackson White is a great competitor, but on Saturday he will make sure he will be the victorious one. They will not raise a barn in his favor, Levi will make sure Jackson repents for his sins.”
Card is subject to change!
I want to thank everyone that took the time to participate in this preview and wish all the athletes involved the best of luck come Saturday.
