Following an amazing year, where he became the first ever two-time XWA Supreme Champion and capped off a very long and emotionally exhausting feud with Rob Chapman and the members of ELITE in the main event of the biggest show of the year, Jerod Barnez appears to have vanished from the public eye. Speaking with his father, legendary superstar Thomas Barnez, we've learned that Jerod has been using this break in between shows to collect himself. Thomas confirmed that Jerod, regardless of any potential award wins - Jerod has been nominated for various Piledriver awards, including match of the year and wrestler of the year - he won't be appearing at the first Massacre of the new year, where the award ceremony will take place.

"He had the biggest year of his career, of his life even, in 2016 and he needs some time to recharge. Jerod knows that now that he's got the Supreme Championship back, there's gonna be a whole new plethora of challenges awaiting him in 2017, so he won't be at Massacre to potentially accept any awards he may win. His focus right now is to just recharge and get ready for Untouchable, where he'll have his first defense of his second Supreme title reign. He doesn't know who he'll be facing yet and neither do I, so he knows he needs to be ready for anything," Thomas told us. He also informed us that he'll be at Massacre to accept any awards Jerod wins on his behalf.
