In the marquee main event of Beyond Wrestling’s Two Weeks Notice event, Warhorse defended his Independent Wrestling Television (IWTV) Independent Wrestling Championship for the 38th time against Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) Champion Rickey Shane Page (RSP) of 44OH!
RSP was accompanied to the ring by 44OH1 members Atticus Cogar, Eddy Only, Eric Ryan, and Gregory Iron. In a match that had a slower pace similar to that of famous National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) territory matches from the 1980s, Warhorse had to battle RSP along with the 44OH! members on the outside.
Dealing with distractions and attacks from 44OH! Warhorse found himself unable to quickly deal with RSP, who has more than proven himself on the independent scene to be a worthy challenger for the Independent Wrestling Championship.
Warhorse also had his upcoming match against Cody for the All Elite Wrestling (AEW) TNT Championship on his mind. Warhorse was set to face the AEW executive two days after this match on AEW Dynamite.
However, Warhorse was able to regroup and dig deep for several high profile kickouts, and would eventually get RSP on his back foot.
In a bit of frustration and after 44OH! entered the ring, RSP got himself disqualified and the group commenced the beatdown on Warhorse. However, Allie Kat and Effy came to his rescue — staying aligned after Warhorse and Effy saved Allie from a similar predicament earlier during Two Weeks Notice.
The match was a good showing for the Independent Wrestling Championship and made it feel like a valuable title.
While it’s yet to be seen whether Warhorse will sign with AEW after his unsuccessful challenge for the TNT Championship, he makes a solid representative for IWTV as Independent Wrestling Champion.
The recent barbs Erick Stevens has sent his way on Twitter could lead to a clash between the two at some point shortly for the title.
