…AND NEW, DEFY WORLD CHAMPION - ARTEMIS SPENCER

December 14th DEFY Wrestling crowned a NEW World Champion in the form of one Artemis Spencer. Artemis defeated longtime champion Shane Strickland in and amazing match. The end came after 20 minutes of back and forth action, when referee Aubrey Edwards slapped the mat for the third time. The crowd erupted in one of the loudest and longest ovations you will hear at a wrestling event!

The night was filled with emotional moments. Brody King, who has been competing with DEFY Wrestling for over a year said his farewell after losing to the man known simply as SCHAFF. These two men each had a win over the other, and this match. Brody's final appearance for DEFY for the foreseeable future saw both men battle through out Washington Hall. This match and Brody leaving was very emotional for fans who saw Brody as one of their own, so much so 30 to 40 fans who sit in the front two rows brought ski masks that resemble the one worn by Brody as he enters the ring. 

PENTAGON Jr also made his triumphant return to DEFY Wrestling as he battled Chris Ridgeway, who made his United States debut. This was an awesome match, and shows the true potential of Chris Ridgeway as he went toe-to-toe with one of the best in the world. Travel delay's had Chris arriving a mere few hours before stepping in the ring. And while he did not win the match, he won over fans in the United States. Chris Ridgeway is a guy to keep your eyes on. 

Other matches saw King Khash and Carl Randers defeat the team of Ravenous Randy Myers and Cody Chhun. DEFY Tag Team Champions the Amerikan Gunz, Mike Santiago and Ethan HD retain their tag gold as they beat Doctor Kliever and Drexl in a wild match that left Drexl getting stitched up by EMT's in the locker room. 

One of the most exciting matches of the night, Prince of Parkland Jack Evans. Accompanied by his mentor Bryan Alvarez of F4Wonline.com squared off with "The Machine" and IMPACT Wrestling X-Division Champion Brian Cage. Evans was competing in front of family and friend, but was not shy about letting fans know he was happy with them. In the end the power of Cage was just too much and he left still champion!

We also saw the young Guilermo Rosas come out with an impressive win over Kaimana who is one of Hawaii's top wrestlers. 

One of the highlights was announcer Steve Migs introducing WWE Hall of Fame inductee Ivory to the live crowd. Ivory came to support DEFY Wrestling and all of the amazing wrestlers!


DEFY Wrestling returns January 19th to Seattle WA and February 9th to Portland OR. Ticket information will be at www.DefyWrestling.com

DEFY partners with KING5 and Northwest Harvest to help battle hunger!

DEFY Wrestling™ is excited to announce that we have partnered with King 5 News and Northwest Harvest to fight hunger and feed families in Washington State as a part of KING 5's Home Team Harvest 

Starting with December 15th's DEFY ON EDGE at the Historic Washington Hall in Seattle, fans can find Northwest Harvest donation boxes at all DEFY Wrestling™ Washington State merch stations to easily donate food items and help battle hunger.

KING 5's 18th annual Home Team Harvest to benefit Northwest Harvest is underway. This year’s goal is to raise enough funds and donations to provide six million meals for families in need in Washington state. 


Over the last 18 years, Home Team Harvest has raised over 40 million meals – but we can’t stop there. Right now in Washington, 1 in 6 children lives in a household that struggles with hunger and 1 in 9 people are considered “food insecure.” For more information visit https://interactive.king5.com/home-team-harvest/


What should you bring to donate at DEFY ON EDGE? NW Harvest is able to buy white rice, beans, oats, pasta and tomato products in bulk, so they encourage the following donations (ranked in importance)

GENERAL FOOD ITEMS

    • Beef stew, chilli and similar meals with low salt/sugar/saturated fats

    • Canned fruit (especially low sugar)

    • Canned fish or meat

    • Peanut butter (plastic jars are preferred)

    • Brown rice

    • Whole grain pastas

    • Canned tomato sauces

    • Shelf-stable milk

INFANT AND BABY FOODS

    • Baby Formula

    • Jars of baby food

    • Powdered or canned milk

    • Infant cereal

    • Baby diapers

Northwest Harvest is the only nonprofit food bank distributor operating statewide in Washington with a network of 375 food banks, meal programs and high-need schools. Through this network, we provide 2 million meals every month and provide access to nutritious food while respecting their dignity and promoting good health. Their vision is ending hunger in Washington.

Northwest Harvest can feed a family of three a nutritious meal for just 67 cents. Every penny of their food and operating funds comes from individuals, businesses, foundations and other organizations, and 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to food distribution. 

You can provide a monetary donation to Northwest Harvest online and find more information about King 5's Home Team Harvest visit https://interactive.king5.com/home-team-harvest/

DEFY partners with Mary's Place to help raise funds for new rapid exit shelter in Seattle!

DEFY partners with Mary's Place to help raise funds for new rapid exit shelter in Seattle!

DEFY wrestling is partnering with Seattle based organization Mary’s Place, a group who provides safe, inclusive shelter and services that support women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness. DEFY will help raise 2 million dollars to create the new rapid exit shelter in Seattle.

At DEFY ON EDGE, we will hold a raffle that includes exclusive ring worn gear, collectibles, and other prizes, with proceeds going to Mary’s Place. Tickets can be purchased at the DEFY merch booth for $5 each, or five for $20.

There are an estimated 40,000 homeless children in Washington State.

Mary’s Place empowers families with children to move out of homelessness through a proven community model of shelter and support. We meet the immediate safety needs of our families, and provide wraparound support services to help them resolve barriers to stability. For over five years we have provided crisis response family shelter at several locations in King County, demonstrating effectiveness and an understanding and ability to meet the needs of diverse family configurations and backgrounds.

The Rapid Exit Shelter will provide shelter and services for families who have an identified housing solution that is feasible within a 30-day time period. The Rapid Exit Shelter will have a dedicated Diversion Specialist on site who will work with families daily to assist them in making progress toward their housing goal.

You can donate directly to the cause!  Here is a link to a donation page that we just added:  https://no-child-sleeps-outside.everydayhero.com/us/lunchbox-lab-neighborhood-grills

'The One Percent' will debut at PDX3

'The One Percent' will debut at PDX3

Jorel Nelson and Royce Isaacs, ‘The One Percent’ are ready to impact DEFY’s Tag Division in a big way.

46086953_984274455088975_760218754809331712_n.jpg

“The 1% is coming to defy wrestling. Personally, because it's time for me to show two of my teachers that I'm not that young kid they took under their wing seven years ago.” - Jorel Nelson

If you ask any DEFY fan they will agree that Jorel Nelson is no stranger to DEFY or the Pacific Northwest. The Seattle native and Buddy Wayne Academy alum spent years traveling the I5 corridor, taking on all competitors until deciding a few years back the SoCal scene would allow his breakneck, athletic style the exposure it deserved. This was pre DEFY, these were the “Black hole” days…

“The Pacific Northwest is very near and dear to me. It's not only where I grew up but where my professional wrestling career started. What DEFY has done to resurrect the region brings so much joy to me. Because now it's not a black hole, now it's a place where anyone who's anyone wants to come. Everyone wants to wrestle for DEFY and everyone wants to experience the PNW. Why? Because the very best talent in the world currently wrestle or have wrestled for Defy and because DEFY hosts the absolute best wrestling fans in the world. Bar none.” - Nelson

Flash forward to 2018, Jorel now returns to the Northwest with Royce Isaacs as The One Percent. Recently making their IMPACT Wrestling debut, the duo is quickly making their name known as a preeminent West Coast Tag unit with aims to collect gold wherever they Wrestle.

“Royce Isaacs and myself are two franchise players who came together to create a dynasty. What we've managed to do within the year we've already been together is astonishing, and we're only looking up. 

Two men who had huge influences on me early on in my career are currently your DEFY Tag Team Champions. One of the very best tag teams in the world. The American Gunz. Anything you want from a tag team they have. They've done it all. Staying power, ability inside and outside of the ring, and anywhere they've gone they've held Tag Team Championships together. Which is why it's only fitting that if The One Percent wants to be considered one of the best tag teams in the world, we have to beat one of the best tag teams in the world.” - Nelson

Catch the pair at DEFY PDXIII City Of Thornes at the Hawthorne Theatre in Portland, Oregon on November 24th! Buy Tickets Now!
