After a brief break for the holidays, Championship Wrestling from Hollywood is back on MavTV. David Marquez had several huge surprises for the members of Vermin, and they weren’t going to like any of them.

Stu Stone welcomed us all to the show. The main event would be a Six Man Scramble to determine the number one contender to the TV Title.

Grant talked with David Marquez. David’s interview was being piped into the locker room. David swore he would make the company ‘Vermin Free”. Johnny Yuma said he would take a spot in the Scramble. David warned Yuma if he lost, someone in Vermin would be fired. David then upped the ante by forcing Ryan Taylor, the TV Champ, to defend against a surprise returning star. Yuma was not happy that Taylor would not know who he was facing. David sent it to ringside.

Anderson Cruz vs Steven Andrews

Cruz has been on a massive losing streak. Croz blasted Andrews and Whipped he kid into the corner. Scoop Suplex by Cruz. Cruz hit another Scoop Suplex. Andrews surprised Cruz with a Crucifix Backslide.

Ty asked Cruz to visualize what would make him happen. Ty then told Cruz to go do it. Cruz attacked Andrews, who was still in the ring. Cruz choked out Andrews as Ty grinned like the Cheshire Cat. The fans yelled “You still lost”. Big hug for Cruz and Mathews. Ty took the stick and said Anderson Cruz was now “New and Improved”. Just don’t drink any Kool-aid if it is offered to you from this guy.

Tyler Bateman came out to the ring. He’s from Moore, OK. My mother and grandmother used to live there, years ago.

Which member of Vermin is gone? Ryan Taylor came out to join his “Brother”. The announcement of who is leaving will have to wait until next week.

Just a reminder, if you happen to be in the Miami area, this week-end, you can meet Championship Wrestling from Hollywood Alumni, Colt Cabana. He and several other wrestlers will be at Magic City Comic Con at the Miami Airport Convention Center. If I didn’t have a previous commitment to teach a class, this week-end, you can know I’d be there.
