XWA Lord of the Ring Opening Round, Group Two Match D

Captain Fabulous vs. Jake Rogers

In the last few weeks, Jake Rogers has not defended his World Television Championship. Never fear, as part of the Lord of the Ring Summer Tournament, EVERY single time that Massacre's top champion is in a match, he will have to defend the title as well as try to advance to the next round.

Can Jake Rogers keep his title AND get past the ever-so-flamboyant Captain Fabulous to get to the second round in the LOTR tournament? Our main event has answers!

Will Neilson vs. Rivers King

Will Neilson is brash, confident and refers to himself the Great British Meme. Making his first-ever appearance in an XWA ring, Neilson is surely looking to make an impact, already challenging A.J. Morales for his Hardcore Championship elsewhere in the XWA world. But he's not alone- Rivers King has been waiting patiently for his moment, snapping up the final spot in the LOTR Summer Tournament.

Two new stars, both looking to make an impact. Who wants it more?

Cosmo Cooper vs. Axton Pierce

You may know Cosmo Cooper from 4CW. You may also know him from CWC, hosting his own show there in the last month. But if he gets his way, you may also know him as the 2018 Lord Of The Ring, too! Well, not if Axton Pierce has anything to do with it. Known for his brief time in Union Battleground, Pierce has vowed to win the LOTR Summer Tournament and cement his place in XWA history.

Cosmo vs Pierce- It's On!

Kaida Kagome vs. Alex Kincaid

Ever since coming to the XWA, Kaida Kagome has quickly become one of the most feared names in the entire promotion. But now that Alex Kincaid has arrived on the scene, the Bullet King could be set to end Kaida's ferocious ways by taking her out of the Lord of the Ring Summer Tournament.

A true challenge for both competitors- who walks out of this going through to the Second Round?

Chris Novak vs. Jerod Barnez

Chris Novak is Back! Once again lacing up the boots, the Madman From Manchester returns to an XWA ring to enter the Lord Of The Ring Summer Tournament. But his work is already cut out for him, as he faces two-time Supreme XWA Champion, Jerod Barnez, who was taken out a year ago by current Supreme XWA Champion, Lx-Tim.

Will Novak make it past the Motherfucking Beast or is Jerod Barnez's thirst for revenge enough to get him through?

Kelsey Spencer vs. Shoju Kota

Oh Gosh! Grab your tim-tams and cue up the Dollyrots cos Kelsey Spencer is back! Last seen in an XWA ring as part of the Layton & Fenric Invitational last September with her partner Rebecca Saint, Kelsey faces a brand new challenge as she enters the Lord Of The Ring Summer Tournament. But bright, young Kelsey isn't alone in her quest, as she'll need to get through a new face in the XWA World, the arrogant and brash "Athlete" Shoju Kota.

Has Kelsey got this one in the bag or can Kota make a massive impact in his first XWA appearance?

The Jester vs. Angelica Vaughn

Who's the next Lord Of The Ring? If you ask Angelica Vaughn, the answer is "Obvs! Obvs! Obvs!" But it might not be as obvious as she makes out, as she goes one on one with the Hall Of Famer, The Jester. A former XWA Heavyweight Champion, Jester reached the final last year and very nearly won the whole thing.

Will history repeat? Or has the Doom Clown met his match?

Smith Jones vs. Dan Bennett

Smith Jones has been Lord Of The Ring once before and nearly was last year...but that was all a very different Smith Jones. Now, the man we knew from those days is gone, and a new version of the man we wanted to win stands looking to conquer it all over again...unless XWA Hall Of Famer Dan Bennett has anything to do with it. Outspoken in his desire to win the Supreme XWA Championship, winning this tournament is Bennett's chance to leapfrog over the competition and challenge for the title literally whenever it suits him.

A Legends-sized match in our first round- the stakes couldn't be higher for either man!

Albion Gale vs. Mark Storey

We were introduced to Albion Gale prior to the beginning of this tournament, and it's clear the fresh faced star is intent on taking the LOTR for herself. However, the person she faces in this round, Mark Storey, knows a thing or two about guaranteed world title opportunities himself, and will stop at nothing to claim it here, too, even with his tag team partner holding the Supreme XWA title.

Can Albion take down Mark, or is this the first step towards a masterplan to keep the Supreme XWA Championship firmly within the ranks of "Storied History"?

Lance Jackson vs. Ace Andrews

Last year, Ace Andrews was overseeing one half of the XWA and terrorising the other as part of the Survivors. But as the last one left from the group, Andrews appears to have promised to remain on the straight and narrow in this tournament, vowing a policy of 'no tricks or games'. Whether he can do that remains to be seen, as Lance Jackson looks to get to the second round of the tournament by defeating the former co-owner of the XWA himself.

Ace vs Lance- who wins? There can be only one!

Rev T.C. vs. The Lynx

The Lord Of The Ring Summer Tournament often attracts new faces and this year is no different in that regard. Once such new face is Rev T.C. himself, looking to capture glory live in Chicago. But the preacher man faces a man who is Literally Basically From Hell- the monstrous, villainous, nefarious Lynx!

Can Rev T.C. send Lynx back from whence he came and ascend to the rank of Lord?

AJ Morales vs. Blake Archer

Our opening match sees two of our most exciting competitors go head to head. A.J. Morales participated in his first Lord Of The Ring last year, reaching the semi-finals before being knocked out of the running. But that was last year, this year he returns to try his luck again, only this time he faces Blake Archer, holder of XWA's "Golden Ticket", looking to add another title opportunity to his collection.

Who wants it more? Can A.J. overcome Archer? Will Blake's bitter rival Levinator get involved? Who has the WETTER HAIR? As we open #LOTR2018, we endeavour to at least answer one of these questions...
