FIP News & Notes

Thanks to Full Impact Pro’s Salem Hamaoui for sending along the following update…

Jerry Lynn In FIP This Weekend – Big World Title Match Signed

Former ECW World Champion Jerry Lynn is a last minute addition to this weekend’s Full Impact Pro events in Crystal River, FL and Arcadia, FL. Lynn brings credibility and a veteran presence to the shows. Lynn knows the competition is tough and he is reaching for the top. Jerry Lynn wants the FIP World Heavyweight Title.

FIP World Heavyweight Champion Roderick Strong won’t back down from a challenge and has accepted. However, Austin Aries, who was robbed of the FIP Title a couple of months ago, wants another shot. There is only one solution. An old school Three Way Dance has been signed for this Friday in Crystal River. It is elimination rules and the FIP World Heavyweight Title is on the line in Crystal River when you will witness Roderick Strong vs. Austin Aries vs. Jerry Lynn.

“I’m looking forward to this one,” Strong said. “There will be no doubt I’m the best champion in all of wrestling when I pin Austin Aries and then make Jerry Lynn tap out in the same match. Get ready for greatness Crystal River because you will witness it this Friday.”

Grudge Match Signed For Crystal River

The last year has been filled with ups and downs for Erick Stevens. Some of those hard time have been caused by Davey Richards. In fact, Richards even injured Stevens and knocked him out of ROH last year. Now Stevens will finally get his chance at a singles match against his nemesis. It will be Stevens vs. Richards this Friday in Crystal River.

“Davey Richards better be ready for a war this Friday,” Stevens said. “I’m counting down the hours. For all the pain he’s caused me I’m going to pound his face in. You are going to see a fight in Crystal River when I get in the ring against Davey Richards.”

Much More To Be Signed For Arcadia

FIP will pull out all the stops in Acadia, FL this Saturday at the beautiful Turner Agri-Civic Center. You will see it all from legends to the best talent going today to tomorrow’s future superstars. Many of the matches for Arcadia will be determined after the events of this Friday in Crystal River. When you look at the talent roster that has not yet been signed to matches you know you will see some great bouts in Arcadia.

“The Age Of The Fall is coming to Arcadia,” Jimmy Jacobs said. “Arcadia is the perfect place to open up a chapter of The Age Of The Fall. You know about hardship. You know about pain. Now we will show you the way this Saturday. We are going to look for The YRR and their day of reckoning will be in Arcadia after we win the FIP Tag Team Titles in Crystal River.”
