Colt Cabana was featured on NBC' "Chicago PD" last night, playing a potential suspect in a murder. 

Alberto El Patron vs. Low Ki for the first time ever will headline the House of Glory event in Jamaica, Queens this Saturday 2/18.  Matt Sydal is also scheduled for the event.  Lots of really good local talent working for HOG including EYFBO and Ken Broadway.

The Charlotte Observer ran a really nice profile piece on "Man Scout" Jake Manning at this link, looking at his work as an independent wrestler and stand up comedian.  It's a nice overview of a very underrated talent and notes that he was one of Cedric Alexander's trainers.

Pentagón 0M vs. Rey Horus will headline Tier-1 Wrestling's return to Woodside, Queens at La Boom this Sunday 2/19 at 4 PM.  Facade and Sonny Kiss are also scheduled.

St. Louis' NWL announced they would be moving their weekly events to Sunday afternoons.  This is the promotion that has signed everyone to contracts and is running full-time.  They had been running Thursday evenings.  Former TNA star Marti Belle is among those who have signed deals here:

Pro Wrestling Promotion NWL STL is moving events to Sunday evenings

Beginning the end of March, NWL STL will be moving their shows to Sundays.

Kansas City, Missouri (PRWEB) February 14, 2017

NWL STL confirmed last week that they will be moving their pro wrestling events from Thursday evenings to Sunday afternoons. The first Sunday show will be held on March 26th at 6pm at the Casa Loma Ballroom.

“Having the events on Thursday evening was initially our best option,” said Major Baisden, League president. NWL STL has delivered three bi-weekly shows in St. Louis since opening earlier this year. “However, it has always been our goal to be an entertainment option for the families of St. Louis. Running shows on Sunday will make it easier on them to come out to our shows.

St. Louis has historically been a dominant pro wrestling town with loyal fans fondly recalling Wrestling at the Chase events and Saturday morning wrestling on TV. “I’m looking forward to our events moving to Sunday,” said Matt Jackson, General Manager of NWL STL. “The move will make it easier for fans to commit to a weekend evening spent watching wrestling, instead of competing with typical midweek activities.”

The NWL STL tournament continues on Thursday, February 23rd at 7:00pm at Casa Loma Ballroom, 3354 Iowa Avenue, St. Louis Missouri. Matt Grundy of the Blood Brothers tag team will square off against outsider Cal Stark to see who advances to the quarterfinals. On the other side of the bracket, civic figurehead Cornell Douglas will take on Grundy’s partner, Davey Gibson. In another key match, hometown hero Dez Wellston will battle Adam Ryan of The Underground.
