ZombieBloodFights.com is an avid supporter of the Texas Indy scene. Author Bowie Ibarra participates in the hallowed tradition of rabid wrestling fan as often as he can, making many friends along the way.
Recently, TNA Impact Wrestling has given independent standouts from across the nation the chance to have a contract with their nationally televised product. Many names from the Texas Indy Scene are on the voting list. Say what you want about TNA, but if you consider yourself a fan and want to see the wrestlers you enjoy earn a good payday that's more than $25 bucks and get exposure they deserve across the nation and the world, then you need to vote for them.
This blog is dedicated to members of the Texas indy scene who have chosen to participate in the TNA Gut Check. Below you will find the wrestlers who ZombieBloodFights.com endorses. If you are wondering who to vote for, this is the place to find an answer.
The participants are split into 16 brackets and randomly thrown together in what amounts to a popularity contest, with the winner from each bracket picked as the winner for the bracket and entered into the competition. With all the fans I see at events, there's no excuse for the following people to not be the top winners of their brackets. I just hope the idiots at TNA don't go against the fans decision like they did when they asked us to vote who the champ should be: Nigel McGuinness or Hardy. Nigel won, but Hardy got the shot. Stupid asses.
Anyway, I encourage you to vote for all of the people I've listed below. Here is the link to vote: Gut Check Voting.
BRACKET 4 - CHRISTOPHER VALENZUELA, AKA ANN DROMEDA
Christopher Valenzuela has been the backbone to one of San Antonio's most dominant wrestling promotion: River City Wrestling. Known as Don Juan at first, he eventually took on the persona of Ann Dromeda, one of the most popular, charismatic, and skilled pro-wrestlers to ever grace the Texas Indy scene.
I'll never forget realizing how talented she was when I watched her wrestle JoJo Bravo a few years back. Chris has charisma, charm, and true pro-wrestling skill that easily sets him apart from other competition. If you cast one vote, do it for Ann Dromeda/Christopher Valenzuela, who receives full-ZombieBloodFights.com endorsement.
BRACKET 12 - MICHEAL DELAVECHIA
The guy is a complete pro-wrestler and deserves a spot on the Gut Check. Full ZBF.com endorsed.
BRACKET 13 - ADRIENNE REECE
Vote for her now.
BRACKET 11 - RASHAN PHILLIPS
BRACKET 9 - DAVID CONOVER
BRACKET 7 - GREG WEBSTER
Greg Webster is known to people in SATX and ATX as 'Too Much Metal' Gregory James. The guy is quick, athletic, and energetic, and deserves a shot to grow with TNA. Vote for him.
Readers of ZombieBloodFights.com have also recommended the following Texas Indy standouts. I do not have knowledge of their abilities, but readers vouch for them. So vote for them.
BRACKET 5 - JASPER DAVIS
BRACKET 11 - SCOTT HARDY
BRACKET 14 - ANTHONY MARTOCCIO
Readers, if you love your indy pro-wrestling, then there's no excuse not to go out and vote for these people who you enjoy when you go see them. Without sounding cliché or like a DVD disclaimer, they put their bodies on the line for our enjoyment, for us to cheer or jeer. They deserve taking 2-3 minutes out of our day to vote for them so they might reap some benefits from the career field they have chosen to pursue.
So vote for the people above, then share this blog with others who need to vote. Do it today.
