T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV
Sin City Underground Ep 119 comes to you taped in front of a sold out crowd at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV. This episode will air on WGN and the Sin City Network at 2:55pm PST on January 23rd, 2022.
Friendly reminder, SCW General Manager Brooke Saxon made note of some strict rules to ensure the safety of fans, staff and the wrestlers alike;
1- Each ticket purchased will come with a safety bag. (A safety bag includes a company logo face Mask, one .5 oz bottle of hand sanitizer, and a pair of XL gloves. Masks must be worn in all areas of the building.
2- Tickets to all shows going forward will only be sold at the SCW shop and only available to the local residents in which the show is being held.
3- Tickets will be sold no earlier than 48 hours before the show. (For SCW, look at it as the promo deadline is when tickets go on sale for that show and SCU shows.)
4- Everyone entering the building will get screened to read their temperature.
5- All food sold going forward will be already wrapped. All drinks will now be sold only in cans or bottles. No fountain type drinks.
6- Food can only be consumed in the designated areas in which masks can be taken off temporarily. All merch bought at the event will be done by credit cards, the shops will no longer take cash.
Anyone not abiding by these rules will be removed and barred from all future SCW/SCU shows.
Every year, our first show of the year is dedicated to our hard working champions. They get to show us exactly why they are champions by defending their titles, and their honor, all in one night. We celebrate the passing of 2021 by commemorating each title and it’s rich history. Come be a part of an historic night as we honor The Three Way, 2 Broke Chicks, Joshua Acquin, Winter Elemental, Andrey Azarov, Merlot Ayano, Hitamashii, and Cordelia Clark as they put their titles up for grabs against some of the hardest working contenders in the company. Those who will truly test the mettle of the champions.
Pride Tag Team Championship
The Three Way vs The Jeckels (Jack Jeckel and Helena Jeckel)
The Three Way and The Jeckels are no strangers to one another. As a matter of fact, they faced off on the Christmas show. Only this time, it is under Pride rules rather than a hardcore style match. The Jeckels came out victorious last week, but they are stepping into the Three Way’s territory now. Who will come out victorious?
GRIME Championship Match
Joshua Acquin vs Mystery Opponent
Joshua has surpassed the longest reigning TV Champion long ago. He has already stated that he’s “bored” with the opposition he’s facing. He’s torn through several opponents during this reign, and has proven himself to be an unstoppable force. Therefore, WGN Head of Standards and Practices Tad Ezra himself has set up a mystery opponent for Joshua, and he promises to make it monumental for this very occasion.
GRIME Tag Team Championship
2 Broke Chicks vs Jerry Cann and Kandy Kaine
2 Broke Chicks are several successful defenses in, and there are no signs of stopping them. However, Jerry Cann and Kandy Kaine have been stepping up their game lately, and under the directive of Martha Fox, they have been showing extreme improvement and have been granted a shot at the GRIME Tag Team Championships. Can they overcome this monumental challenge?
Andrey Azarov vs Jake Jeckel
Jake Jeckel won a contendership match after High Stakes and has waited this long for his shot. Meanwhile, Andrey has been antagonizing Jake almost weekly, and he is so sure of retaining his belt that he's stated that he's already looking for his next challenger. Jake might have a thing or two to say about that come Night of Champions.
GRIME Championship Match
Winter Elemental vs Ariana Angelos
Ariana shocked everyone by winning the contendership to face Winter at Night of Champions. "The Greek Goddess" as she has rebranded herself, looks to take on Winter and to win her first singles championship in SCU since her debut two years ago. But, despite multiple injuries on Winter Elemental, she will defend her GRIME Championship on this night to prove that she is a fighting champion.
Merlot Ayano vs Jenifer Lacroix
The rematch of the century. That's what Jenifer is returning to. While she is not yet cleared to wrestle at this time, she is slated to be cleared by the time Night of Champions takes place. After having suffered her first loss and an injury at the hands of Combat Champion Merlot Ayano, she looks to return and redeem herself. But, it's Merlot Ayano, the longest reigning champion in NLW/Honor Wrestling/SCU history, so...
Hitamashii vs Mz Holly Wood
After much debate about Hitamashii's Underground Championship win in the Warrior's Brawl at High Stakes, the powers that be have decided that one of the competitors involved in the final decision, Mz Holly Wood, deserves the opportunity to take what Helluva Bottom Carter claims is rightfully Holly's. After Carter stated that, if anything, Holly eliminated him first, the GM heard his complaint and looks to rectify a wrong. Meanwhile, Hitamashii is sitting up top, looking not so pretty after Carter's attack at the Christmas show. He's none too happy about that, and he looks to take that out on Holly come Night of Champions.
Fatal Fourway Match
Cordelia Clark vs Angel of Filth vs Omasa Tazu vs Morgan Clark
As seen on TV! The Christmas edition of Underground, to be exact. Cordelia Clark was set to face Omasa Tazu, one on one, to determine who would be going on to face her for the title at Night of Champions. If Omasa won, she got the shot. If Cordelia won, Angel of Filth would get the shot. When Filth decided to interfere, Morgan Clark came down for the rescue, kind of. She caused the match to end in a Double Disqualification, leaving us to wonder. However, Tad Ezra decided to come down and make a call of his own. He said that all four ladies in that ring would be main eventing Night of Champions in a Fatal Fourway for the Underground Championship. We fully expect this to turn into a sort of tag team match, but with the title up for grabs, who knows if the alliances will hold strong?
Tune in on the Sin City Network and WGN to see this show, leading to SCW Inception, where we will see SCU stars Orchid and Delia Darling go head to head, as well as Legend Veronica Taylor taking on Chelsea LeClair!
