IWC returns to our home base of Court Time Sports Center for our annual tournament spectacular, Super Indy 17! This year’s Super Indy Tournament takes place on Saturday night June 9th, 2018 at 7:00 PM in Elizabeth, PA. Every year, the top talent from all across the wrestling world converge to compete in the prestigious Super Indy Tournament. In the previous 16 Super Indy tournaments, 94 men have competed for the IWC Super Indy Title, including names like CM Punk, Christopher Daniels, Kassius Ohno, Elias, Mustafa Ali, Johnny Gargano, Cesaro, DJZ, Jerry Lynn, Adam Cole, and more. This year, 8 more join the illustrious group to compete in Super Indy!
The Super Indy Champion will once again enter the tournament to defend the title. This year, that man is Gory. Only one man, RJ City, has entered the champion and left with the title. But, the IWC veteran enters the tournament for the 8th time, tying the record set by the inaugural Super Indy Champion and the only man to win the tournament twice, Super Hentai. Does that signal success for the “New Age Plague”?
Making his IWC debut at Super Indy 17 will be none other than Jeff Cobb! A former Olympic wrestler for Guam, Cobb has been taking the wrestling world by storm in the last several years. Will “The King of the Suplex” be able to take the field of 8 on his Tour of the Islands en route to the Super Indy Title?
“Bad Boy” Joey Janela returns for the second year in a row to enter the Super Indy 17 Tournament! Last year, Janela defeated Colt Cabana in the opening round, only to fall to the eventual winner Adam Cole in the semi-final round. One year later, and one year wiser, Janela returns to add the Super Indy Championship to his mantle. Will this year be different?
Anthony Henry made a splash in 2017, immediately becoming a contender for the IWC Super Indy Title in his debut last July. However, his title match went from a singles match to a four-way for the vacant title. That match was won by the current champion Gory. Now nearly one year later, Henry returns to IWC to enter his first Super Indy Tournament! Will he be able to capture the title this time around?
“The Product” David Starr makes his IWC debut entering Super Indy 17 on June 9th! Starr has traveled the world winning championships, and this year won the CZW Best of the Best Tournament. Now he looks to add the Super Indy CHampionship to his list of accolades! Will his debut be a successful one?
After a controversial exit in 2014, “All Ego” Ethan Page returns to IWC as he enters Super Indy 17! Page competed in the Super Indy 13 tournament, and has also won AIW’s JT Lightning Invitational Tournament in Cleveland. He has captured many championships in North America, but the Super Indy Title is one that always eluded him. Can “All Ego” capitalize on his return to IWC with a huge Super Indy Tournament win?
The first two men to qualify for Super Indy 17 are pitted against one another in a grudge match that has been building for over a year now. Jaxon Argos has been a thorn in the side of Jonathan Gresham, getting the better of him in each opportunity. After Argos and Team Storm were able to manipulate himself a spot in Super Indy this year by holding IWC owner Justin Plummer’s wife Jenny hostage, Plummer announced that not only would Argos be in Super Indy, but his longtime rival Gresham would be Argos’ first round opponent! Gresham has been to the finals of the Super Indy Tournament two years in a row now, but has not been able to win in the finals, falling to Josh Alexander in 2016 and Adam Cole in 2017. Gresham feels 2018 is finally his year, but will he be able to get past the loudmouthed Canadian sympathizer first?
After Jack Pollock and Team Storm took Jenny Plummer hostage to get his job back in a despicable scene that took place at SEVENTEEN in March, IWC owner Justin Plummer has vowed to make their lives a living hell. At Super Indy 17, Jack Pollock is going to face a man who has been a family friend of the Plummers for over a decade, “Notorious” Shane Taylor. Several years ago, only a year into his pro wrestling career, Pollock had a run-in with Taylor that left him beaten and bloodied. Today, Pollock is a little older, and a little wiser. But, Taylor is still the dangerous problem solver that he was back then, but now he’s a little leaner and a lot meaner. Jack Pollock is in for a fight on June 9th. Will he be able to survive?
Stay tuned for the first round bracketing, as well as another non-tournament match as we head into June for Super Indy 17!
