Daniel García is the new Limitless World Champion.
The 22-year-old wrestling sensation defeated Christian Casanova for the title at Limitless Wrestling’s. Double vision program, which aired Friday night on IWTV.
“There was no other place in the world that I wanted to be than in that ring,” Garcia said. “At the end of the game, at that moment, in the middle of an Amvets Hall in Yarmouth, Maine, I felt good.”
The victory validated Garcia’s hard work and sacrifice, which began with Limitless in 2018. Garcia was also fortunate to recover so quickly from a terrifying car accident in 2019, where he suffered a fractured right femur and broke his fibula and fibula. tibia on the left shin. and ankle.
“I’m still inspired by those scars,” Garcia said. “A couple of inches different in that accident, I’m not here anymore. I feel very blessed to be here and to have the opportunity to do what I love to do. “
the Double vision card highlighted the essential nature of the independent wrestling scene. Casanova, who displayed a presence in the ring that rivaled none of his peers in the indies, reached his current level of excellence through a passionate and relentless work ethic. He devoted six years to Limitless, including work on his first show, and his future on NXT will be dating viewing.
The Limitless title fight also featured the story between Casanova and Garcia, a layered story that further amplifies the type of content that can be found in the indies. After the first match at Beyond Wrestling’s Uncharted territory Gauntlet of Discovery in the summer of 2019, a fight that Garcia convincingly won in just 90 seconds, they faced each other again last December at Limitless’ Vacationland Cup Show. That was a four-way match for the vacant title, which Casanova won. Double vision marked the rubber match, as well as Casanova’s farewell. In an electric way, he did the honors by dropping the belt to a rising star in Garcia.
“Christian is my brother and he is one of my closest friends in professional wrestling,” Garcia said. “He has helped me a lot and he is a great fighter, but he is an even better person.
“In the ring, he is a modern Eddie Guerrero. He is perfect. He’s handsome, incredibly talented, a bit arrogant, and you can’t help but appreciate his work. Many people around the world will be fans of Christian Casanova in the future ”.
The game’s turning point came when Garcia executed a picturesque piledriver on Casanova. The piledriver has played a crucial role in all of their matches, beginning with their Discovery Gauntlet encounter, where that was the first move Garcia gave Casanova. During the Vacationland Cup In the match, Garcia was selling a left shoulder injury after an outstanding match with Lee Moriarty, which limited him to a one-handed piledriver, a not-so-effective move, illustrated by Casanova struggling to win the match.
Garcia hit two pilings in Friday night’s game. The second, with Casanova’s arms pinned behind his back, signaled the final sequence of the bout and completed his story, at least for the foreseeable future.
“That last driver was perfect, and these are the matches and moments that we can bring to independent wrestling,” Garcia said. “I take great pride in that, and my goal is to restore the prestige of independent wrestling.”
The meaning of the title Limitless is a testament to what the promotion has built in a precariously short period of time, presenting compelling shows that highlight hungry young talent. After debuting the belt in 2019, he has already developed a history of his champions signing with great promotions, as MJF (AEW), Anthony Greene (NXT) and now Casanova have landed a contract with a major company.
As a Limitless, C * 4, and Empire State Wrestling champion, Garcia’s plan is to continue to thrive in the indies, hosting top-tier matches against a host of opponents.
“There has been a lot of speculation about my future,” Garcia said. “Obviously, I appeared for AEW and NXT during the past year. Right now, my goal is not to sign with a major company, my goal is to become the best independent fighter in the world.
“I’ve heard too often that, with everyone signing contracts, independent wrestling is dead. With the likes of Lee Moriarty, Chris Dickinson, Kevin Blackwood, Atticus Cogar and myself leading the charge, I can assure you that he is alive and well. I don’t want to sign anywhere until I am known as the best independent fighter in the world. “
Garcia is fighting seven bouts in a three-day span over WrestleMania weekend, as well as traveling to Mexico next month, where he also hopes to defend the Limitless title. Each game serves as another opportunity for him to show that there is no one better in the world at his craft.
“I want to be the best,” Garcia said. “I want to be the workhorse, I want to be undeniable. I still have a lot to prove to independents, and this race will show that I am the best in the world. “
