Marval vs London

img_1293In early 2002 a group of Texas Wrestling Academy talent ventured to Philadelphia, Pa to take part in a new promotion called Ring of Honor. There were no promises, no guarantees made to anyone, just an offer of an opportunity of maybe possibly getting a chance to break into the very stacked and talented roster.
One opportunity that was offered was a match pitting a young Paul London vs a young Chris Marval. Both very talented and hungry individuals from Texas who spent their early years jumping from promotion to promotion before finally landing at the Texas Wrestling Academy.
Now they were at the biggest stage at that point in their career.
This match lasted less than 2 1/2 minutes as Chris Marval suffered a horrific injury, dislocating and breaking his ankle forcing the match to be stopped.
The stipulation of this match was, the winner would be offered a RoH contract.
Paul London has went on to not only star in RoH but was signed to TNA, WWE, and currently Lucha Underground. He’s held numerous singles and tag team titles thru out his career.
December 3rd Paul London vs Chris Marval will mark the first time both will face each other since that fateful day in early 2002.
A rematch, 14yrs in the making


Texas Title Match December 3rd

img_1291The TWE Texas Championship originated in the Shawn Michaels Texas Wrestling Alliance promotion in 2000. Some of the biggest names in not only Texas, but the entire wrestling industry have held that title of Texas Champion.
The first holder of the title was Venon, who after a lengthy reign finally lost it in 2001 against former ECW star Justin Credible.
Credible was unable to meet the TWA schedule due to prior commitments and relinquished the title.
A tournament was held with WWE star Sho Funaki coming out as the new champion.
The title changed hands between Funaki and Shooter Shultz. Shultz was then signed to a developmental deal with WWE and departed from the area.
Funaki lost the belt in a fluke loss to Charles Poindexter Alexander.
He quickly regained it.
In what was originally scheduled as an NWA World title match vs Texas Champion Mike Foxx, World Champion AJ Styles still agreed to take the match after the local NWA promoter filed a protest since TWE was not part of the NWA.
Styles defeated Mike Foxx and held the title for 3 months before losing it back to Foxx.
Foxx faced opponents Hotstuff Hernandez, and Kazushi in a series of matches losing and regaining the title several times with each man.IMG_0042.PNG
Another Champion of note was American Dragon Bryan Danielson who had one title defense against The fallen Angel Chris Daniels.
Further down the road Cowboy James Clayton and Byron Wilcott battled all over Texas for the right to be called ‘Texas Champion’.

In 2013 the Championship belt was stolen from Wilcotts vehicle.
Over the last 5 months Ring of Honor star Keith Lee, Moonshine Mantell, Terrale Tempo and Rudy Russo have been positioning themselves thru a series of matches as to who would face each other for the new Texas Championship.
On December 3rd it comes down to the top two.
