A year after their first show at the Miami Airport Convention Center, Ronin Pro Wrestling are putting on their eighth show this Saturday night, September 26, at the Broward College South Campus Gym in Pembroke Pines, FL. The bell time is at 7:30 p.m., but the doors open at 5 p.m. where a pre-show meet-and-greet event.
The main event will feature the Ronin Heavyweight Champion Donovan defending his title against Jesse Sorensen in a ladder match. Donovan and Sorensen are no strangers with one another as they both competed in a Fatal Four-Way match to declare the inaugural Ronin Champion at the last Ronin show. However, Donovan might be fighting an uphill battle as they might be potential interference from Sorensen’s cohorts, Chamberlain and Jeff Boom.
Speaking of Boom, he will be taking on his former tag partner Monster Tarver. This came about when Boom abandoned Tarver mid-match during their bout with The Savages at Ronin 7. After walking away victorious, Tarver was hit with a steel chair by Boom. He soon got his vengeance when Boom interfered in the Fatal Four Way match for the Ronin title by punching his lights out.
In a triple threat affair, “The Hashtag Warrior” Edward Malken will take on two familiar faces: “The Fitness Guru” Joey Bricco and Maxwell Chicago. Bricco eliminated Malken to become the winner of the Ronin Rumble in January and “The Hashtag Warrior” loss to “The Lounge Lizard of Ronin Pro Wrestling” after getting hit with a low blow behind the referee’s back at Ronin 7. Eveyone in this contest will be seeking something: Malken’s looking for revenge, Maxwell seeking his second victory and Bricco trying to comeback from getting pinned by Donovan in the Fatal Four Way match for the Ronin championship.
In a rematch from the last Ronin show, Angel Rose will once again take on Leva Bates (aka NXT’s Blue Pants). This time, international wrestler Su Yang will be appointed as the special guest referee for the bout. Bates and Yang have wrestled each other before, but will their history with one another effect the outcome of this match? Can Angel Rose learn from her mistakes and get her first victory in Ronin?
Two wrestling styles clash when the high-flying Lince Dorado will go up against the British brawler Martin Stone. Stone made his debut in Ronin 7 where he got his first win against Aaron Solo, while Dorado lost to Mr. 450 courtesy of some underhanded tactics during that show.
The Legion of Wolves The team of Aron Agony & Gabriel Black, aka The Legion of Wolves, will face off against T.E.C.H. (Mike Monroe & TC Read) with their manager, Jim Sherbert, in their corner. These teams collided before at Ronin V where T.E.C.H. walked away victorious that night. However, Ronin 7 featured a different story as Agony & Black won their match against Deimos & Mark Silva while T.E.C.H. lost to Team Lucha. Will history repeat itself at Ronin 8 or is there going to be a different outcome?
It is literally a David vs. Goliath tag match-up when the monstrous duo of Deimos and “The Outback Silverback” Mark Silva will take on the death-defying and agile team of Cruz & Rios aka Team Lucha. Team Lucha avenged their loss against T.E.C.H at the last Ronin show in a spectacular opening match, while Deimos and Silva came up on the losing end of things when they were defeated by The Legion of Wolves. Can Deimos and Silva ground the high-flying antics of Team Lucha or will the two members of the Lucha World Order use their speed to overcome them?
