Kendjorsky secures November OV title shot
While the fans anxiously await a stipulation and actual match between Ohio Valley Champion Joe Patterson and current #1 contender Chris Petroskey, the future for either man appears to already be set. Commissioner John Wyatt Edgar announced today that Michael Kendjorsky will receive the winner, and such, an Ohio Valley Championship match of some sort next month.
Details on what kind of match that will be have yet to be discussed. Kendjorsky, who has ties to the Ohio Valley but does not currently reside in it, will become the first-person outside of the Valley to challenge for the title. He was selected as the new #1 contender unanimously by the championship committee, who favored him at the current time over former Cinderella story Dom Vinci.
However, before any progress on putting his match together can be made, Patterson still needs to defend his title this month. Rumor going around is that the commissioner is growing frustrated as the end of the month approaches and he and Petroskey have not agreed to terms on a decisive bout, and that he is beginning to put contingency plans together that would include mandating a match type and/or putting in an emergency contender in the interim. So that really leaves it up in the air as to who Kendjorsky will be challenging in November for the brand’s second-most prestigious title.
Gang Wars championship rematch takes place this Saturday
Weeks of negotiation couldn’t put the Pugs of Anarchy (Nicholas Griffin & Brad Uhrig) and the current Gang Wars Champions Mel ‘n’ Del Connection (Lance & Melanie Delbrugge) in the same place at the same time before the end of the month, so some bizarre measures are currently being taken to make sure the match happens.
The two teams will compete in a simulated WWE2k17 match, in which each team will pick 3 superstars who will compete on their behalf in a 6-man ladder match. The team who has chose the winning participant will win the real-life Gang Wars title. It seems kind of silly to have a video game determining their championship fate, especially when they aren’t even playing it (but more on that below), but it may not matter much as Edgar has signed both teams as well as a mystery third team in a triple-threat title defense in November for whomever wins.
Edgar will be live-streaming the match at 11PM Saturday on the DubPoints Facebook page.
Dodrill comes to video game agreement with Howes for Internet Championship
While a date has yet to be selected (though it could happen this weekend), Internet Champion David Dodrill has an in-place agreement to play against Jimmy Howes in a best-of-7 WWE 2k17 match that will be streamed on Facebook and will serve as a title defense. It’s an interesting choice, considering that Howes is well-known in the community for being an avid gamer while Dodrill’s skills in that field are largely unknown.
The match was slated to take place last week but has been pushed back as both contestants select an alternative date. There is no word on who will be the top contender for the championship next month, though many expect Dodrill to have a rematch clause in his contract should he lose.
