Next month’s main event IWTV 100 The indie show will feature a clash of the brightest rising stars in professional wrestling.
Wheeler Yuta will defend the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship against Daniel García on August 8 at IWTV 100, a show celebrating the 100th defense of IWTV’s signature title.
“I’m not the IWTV independent wrestling champion right now, but I feel like I am the independent wrestling champion,” says Garcia. “Most people know who the real king of independent professional wrestling is, and once I get that belt, I will prove it to everyone.”
Garcia is an outrageously talented artist, one who has already overcome injuries sustained in a career-threatening accident to reach a high level in a short period of time. At just 22 years old, Garcia possesses a presence and intensity in the ring that many of his teammates have struggled to achieve throughout their careers.
The youth movement in this match will be in full view. Yuta is a 24-year-old sensation who appeared the last two weeks on AEW Dynamite in matches against Darby Allin and Sammy Guevara, as well as the STRONG and Ring of Honor. Garcia has fought for NXT and AEW, so this is a reunion of two of the top indie stars who have fought for every major company in the world, and now they come together to showcase the best of indie wrestling.
“I have never fought Yuta before. We have never touched, but he is someone I admire a lot, ”says García. “We both picked up momentum at the same time, and we are two of the best independent professional wrestlers in the world right now.
“IWTV 100 is going to be one of the biggest independent shows of all time. This will be extremely special, something that people will notice. “
Only eight wrestlers have held the IWTV Indie Wrestling Championship since its inception in 2017. The collection of belt-holding talent is particularly impressive, with Ring of Honor’s Jonathan Gresham and Tracy Williams, as well as Orange Cassidy and Kris Statlander from AEW.
Yuta, who became an IWTV champion when he defeated another outstanding talent at Lee Moriarty in May in a 52-minute one-game marathon, has a title defense closer before IWTV 100. She faces Killian McMurphy on July 31 at the ECWA Super 8 Women’s Tournament on July 31, and if Yuta wins, then her next title defense will be against Garcia in IWTV 100.
Taking place at the H2O Wrestling Center in Williamstown, New Jersey, the IWTV 100 The letter also includes Cassidy and Statlander teaming up against Moriarty and Trish Adora, as well as Warhorse against John Wayne Murdoch.
Garcia challenging Yuta has the potential to be a spectacular main event. Garcia’s contributions have the potential to have a profound impact on the way independent wrestlers impact the entire industry, particularly through the way he has worked for multiple promotions to create this undeniable, must-see space. where it now operates. Already a champion of three promotions in Limitless, Empire State and C4, Garcia is looking to add a new title to his collection.
“This IWTV title has only been around for four years, but it already has a lot of meaning and history,” Garcia said. “I’m still a free agent and I want to collect as many chips as I can before cashing in, and I’m not done collecting chips. This is a title I want. “
In a program that will feature stars from IWTV’s past and present, Garcia seeks to highlight a part of the future by showing off his immense talent.
“When you step into the ring with Yuta, you will see two of the best professional wrestlers in the world,” says Garcia. “And you are going to see a new champion.”
