New weekly video series DEFYNOW starts Friday, March 16th!!

DEFY Wrestling is pleased to announce the next phase for DEFY video content with a new weekly streaming program entitled DEFYNOW.

The DEFYNOW moniker, previously used as an event title for smaller scale live events will now be the name for DEFY's flagship online program - featuring matches, interviews, and promos directly from DEFY live events, DEFYNOW will also incorporate documentary-style pieces and music videos to create a "television-like" experience in a shorter format.

"I think for a lot of people - brevity is appreciated and we want to try and present a streaming show that really highlights the matches, the vibe, and the experience of being at a DEFY live event without insisting folks commit a full 3 hours at a time. We think creating a show that is short, consistent and well produced will resonate with an audience that perhaps digests many other forms of content in that very way - like podcasts, blog posts, tweets, episodes of a web series - we think there is a happy medium between powerful content and short-form presentation specifically produced to live on the internet and not on TV." - JIM PERRY // DEFY Owner

The first episode of DEFYNOW will be available starting next Friday, March 16th for subscribers to DefyOnDemand.com - as well as partner channels such as HighSpots Network, Demand Progress, PCW Ultra On Demand, CZW Studios and more.

In the near future viewers can expect DEFYNOW to appear on the IMPACT Wrestling streaming platform GWN, in addition to being featured on the Amazon Prime channel "Powerslam Wrestling Network". For the first time, (and very soon) DEFY programming will be available on AppleTV devices.

DEFYNOW launches next week, Friday, March 16th with action from DEFY9 from Seattle's Historic Washington Hall. The episode features fan favorite Rich Bocchini on play by play, the full uncut Randy Myers vs Sami Callihan match (previously only seen on IMPACT Wrestling TV) as well as the Amerikan Gunz vs the team of Nelson and Xstatic. 

Be ready for DEFYNOW and subscribe to DefyOnDemand.com to catch up on all DEFY's past events including the freshly dropped DEFY8 "Kings Among Men" featuring one of the best matches of 2017 in Shane Strickland vs Matt Riddle.

From the Houston Area, Rich came up through the ranks working for such promotions as Booker T's Reality Of Wrestling, then spent time with WWE where he was best known for commentating for Smackdown and NXT. While in NXT, Rich was the soundtrack to some of the most prominent moments in the brand's short history.

We are big fan's of Rich and his work speaks for itself. We are so excited at this chance to  expand our team and streamline our production process in which allows our former commentating team oppurtunites to develop new content and to help grow alongside our business with new event and content offerings. - Jim Perry / DEFY Owner

Mostly recently, Rich has provided "PBP" for MLW, FEST Wrestling, and Wrestlecircus and can be heard weekly on MLW Radio Network's flagship show, and as co-host of the JJ Dillon Show.

Last Thursday DEFY premiered on IMPACT Wrestling in the US on POP TV and internationally in 120 countries with a match from DEFY9 Yo! Defy Graps between Sami Callihan vs Randy Myers.

This broadcast kicks off a working relationship between DEFY and IMPACT that will see DEFY Wrestling events included for subscribers on the Global Wrestling Network, an over the top app, which for the first time will make DEFY events available for streaming on AppleTV and IOS devices. GWN features new and classic IMPACT / TNA content as well as select independent promotions.

IMPACT Wrestling is broadcasted in 120 Countries and has featured some the most prominent Wrestlers in the world during its 15 years of existence. Most recently, the "worldwide desperado" Sami Callihan joined the roster, teaming with the IMPACT Tag Champions (and old friends) Dave and Jake Crist better known as oVe "Ohio Versus Everything". Sami debuted at this year's Bound For Glory and has brought with him all of his trademark violence and anarchy he's known for around the world.

Ravenous Randy Myers hails from British Columbia, Canada and was trained by the Hart family. His charisma and passion immediately made him a DEFY fan favorite. A strong victory over indie darling Sammy Guevara at October's DEFYNOW earned Randy his shot to compete in this IMPACT match.

DEFY8 FULL CARD / Sept. 29th in Seattle

DEFY8 FULL CARD / Sept. 29th in Seattle

DEFY WRESTLING RETURNS TO SEATTLE’S FAMOUS WASHINGTON HALL

September 29th marks the highly anticipated return of DEFY Wrestling to Seattle as the company presents, DEFY 8: KINGS AMONG MEN. This star-studded event will be topped by two huge main events!

Returning is the DEFY Champion, “King of Swerve” Shane Strickland who has been successfully defending his championship around the globe and may be heading into his toughest challenge to date as he faces former UFC Fighter and one of wrestling’s hottest newcomers, Matt Riddle.

DEFY 8's second main event comes with the return of former WWE Intercontinental Champion John Hennigan. The man is known by many different names including John Morrison, Johnny Mundo or as recently seen on IMPACT Wrestling, Johnny Impact! His return will be met by his biggest test to date as he defends his Pacific Coast Wrestling Heavyweight title against former Olympian, the Hawaiian strongman Jeff Cobb!

Another championship will be defended September 29th when Pacific Coast Wrestling Light Heavyweight Champion Douglas James defends his gold against the Ravenous one, Randy Myers. This will be both wrestlers debut for DEFY Wrestling and are planning to make a huge impression on the Defyance.

Possibly the most anticipated event of the evening is the triple threat match involving Taya Valkyrie taking on Nicole Matthews and DEFY Tacoma Cup winner Christina Von Eerie who will be accompanied by her husband Scotty Mac. With three of the best wrestlers in one match, we can guarantee these women will tear the house down.

Also making his debut to DEFY is Brody King who will be colliding with Big Jack Cunningham in a battle of super heavyweights. In tag team action the Amerikan Gunz, Mike Santiago and Ethan HD will be locking up with the Hungarian brothers the Vörös Twins! Also in action will be Carl “Catch” Cunningham, Rebel Kel, Clark Connors and more!

A pre-show VIP meet and greet will start the night out. And there will be an afternoon wrestling seminar hosted by Matt Riddle. For more information on VIP tickets or how to attend the seminar email james@defywrestling.com

DEFY WRESTLING RETURNS TO TACOMA’S TEMPLE THEATER

Comment

DEFY WRESTLING RETURNS TO TACOMA’S TEMPLE THEATER

After last month’s successful debut in Tacoma, DEFY Wrestling makes its return to the City of Destiny. Thursday, August 3rd to the Temple Theater Grand Plaza Ballroom, at the Landmark Convention Center, 47 St Helens Ave, Tacoma WA 98402.

DEFY Wrestling’s return marks the start of a partnership with Mexico’s hottest promotion The Crash Lucha Libre. Legendary star of Mexico, and former WCW wrestler Konnan said, “working together with DEFY is a win-win for fans and the wrestlers!” This partnership will see the appearance of exciting international stars intent to make their mark on wrestling in the northwest. Included is the one and only Jack Evans, who dubs himself the “Prince of Parkland.” 

Evans born in Tacoma Washington, who was raised in Parkland left the northwest to become a major international star based out of Mexico and stars in the highly acclaimed Lucha Underground television show. This will be Evans first match in Tacoma in well over 10 years. He will be pitted against 2004 Olympian, the powerhouse Mr. Athletic Jeff Cobb!

Possibly the night's most anticipated match (and the main event) will see the newly crowned DEFY Champion, “King of Swerve” Shane Strickland against Lio Rush. A rematch between the men who in April had what many longtime fans called the best professional wrestling match they’ve ever seen live! Rush will attempt to capture the DEFY Championship and take it with him. This could be Lio Rush’s last independent match in the Northwest as he just signed a contract to compete with Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment’s NXT brand

August 3rd will see the debut of Ring of Honor star, Flip Gordon. Gordon who has made a huge impression on the wrestling world will be taking on “the Puerto Rican Sensation” Mike Santiago. Also competing is Ave Rex and Sonico, Los Sexi Mexi’s. The Luchadores will compete with the tandem of Big Jack and Carl Cunningham.

Last month the women of DEFY had one of the most amazing matches of the evening. Hot off a tour of Japan, international star Cat Power will be making her DEFY Wrestling debut. Many other great local and international stars will be gracing the ring at the Temple Theater, you will not want to miss it!

The host and ring announcer for the evening will be 99.9 KISW’s Kevin Diers (Filling in for Steve Migs)!

DEFY at the Temple Theater is open to all ages event and will include a meet and greet with the wrestlers prior to the matches. Group rate tickets and sponsorship opportunities are also available.

On this week's MIGS VS The World Of Wrestling - Migs sits down with current CZW World Champion and DEFY Championship 8XGP contender Davey Richards. 

More from the MigsBlog

I just started doing a wrestling podcast called “Migs Vs. The World Of Wrestling”, and big thanks to everyone that has checked it out so far.
The podcast is not a show where I critique the wrestling product…I don’t like crapping on wrestling (like some wrestling fans and wrestling podcasts do)…I watch wrestling because I find great entertainment in it.  Do I think it’s always good?  Of course not, but I definitely enjoy the majority of it!
What I am doing on the podcast is giving listeners a chance to learn about the men and women that put their safety on the line…all so that we can be entertained.  Wrestlers are some of the most interesting people that I have met…they all have insane stories behind their journey in becoming a professional wrestler.
There is one guy that I had at the top of my wish list to chat with…and that is Othello Washington’s own, CZW Champion -- Davey Richards.
Davey is the epitome of interesting…both inside and outside the squared circle. 
Not only is Davey killing it in Impact Wrestling (his “Lone Wolf” character is so bad ass), but he going to be here for Defy 4 at Tacoma’s Temple Theater on 6/29…hopefully he will be at Defy 5 as well on the next night at Washington Hall in Seattle.  I’ll be the ring announcer, and you can get more info and tix at DefyWrestling.com.
When I say that Davey is interesting outside the ring….
-- He is not only a wrestler, but is also a paramedic.
-- He is a pre-med student
-- He is studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
-- Him and his wife, Angelina Love, just had a baby boy.
Check out our chat, as we talk about all of this…plus his love for the Seattle music scene, and he also explains why he has no intentions of wanting to wrestle in the WWE.
Click HERE to listen to this episode of Migs Vs. The World Of Wrestling…please let your wrestling fans know about the podcast too!

LISTEN - DEFY3 SWERVE CITY Playlist by KEVIN DIERS

DEFY backstage correspondent and KISW 99.9 FM's KEVIN DIERS delivers another crushing Mixtape - this time for DEFY3. 

" When you walk into Washington Hall, grab a drink and find your seat, the energy in the room is electric. There is a-lot of anticipation in the air and the key to my selections for the Defy3 playlist was to choose the most high octane, fast, and intense music to get everyone pumped up - a lot of which happens to be metal.

There are a couple of songs in here that don't EXACTLY fit that definition...specifically the Deftones and Soundgarden tracks. I had been listening to a ton of Chris Cornell's music that week (R.I.P.) and I felt it's important to keep his art fresh in our minds.

As far as the Deftones song....I mean, it's called SWERVE CITY! How couldn't I put it on there? Along with making a soundtrack for Defy3, this playlist also serves as badass motivation at the gym."
