With one more match to be announced, Voltage Wrestling officials released the brackets for the Grand Championship Tournament on Monday morning on social media. Upon first glance, the term "stacked" would be an understatement. The brightest and the best area stars have been assembled to take part in the one-night tournament to crown the very first Voltage Wrestling Grand Champion. Let's take a look at the competitors announced thus far.
"Big Trouble" Ben Bishop - During the pandemic, the 7ft tall rookie has been extremely active on the indy circuit. Primarily, Bishop has been active in the Tennessee area, racking up victories wherever he goes. While his career is just getting started, this man is no stranger to gold. In his pro wrestling debut last February, he won the ACW Tag Team Championship in the very last event at Michael's 8th Avenue in Baltimore.
"Ruthless" Jason Radatz - Once a tag team specialist as one half of the WildCardz with Eddie Page, Radatz has stepped into his own over the last several years, traveling up and down the east coast and competing against the very best in indy wrestling. In addition to the many Tag Team Championships that Radatz has won, he has won many singles championships. He has most recently held the Elite Pro Heavyweight Championship.
MADD Maxx Morrison - The Wild Eyed Headbanger has been no stranger to championships over the last 2 years. He has won gold in Western PA for Eclipse Wrestling in the past year. Can he cap off #theshockingdebut by adding the Voltage Wrestling Grand Championship to his resume.
"Triple Fears" Kevin Mears - Recently, Mears stated that he put over 40,000 miles on his vehicle traveling across the country to learn and work with the very best in the pro wrestling world. We've recently seen him performing regularly for School of Morton, a promotion ran by WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Morton. Before the pandemic, he had already established himself as an area mainstay. While he has won gold here in the i-81 corridor, he has never been a heavyweight champion locally. That could all change with 3 wins on June 5th.
"The Kingpin of Riot City" Sicend - This man has been a cornerstone of area wrestling for the last 10 years. We've lost count on how many Light Heavyweight Championships Sicend has won. This man has won over 15 Tag Team Championships over the course of his career. Of course, we would be selling this competitor short if we didn't mention the year long reign as Adrenaline Wrestling Heavyweight Champion. This man is no stranger to winning tournaments as he was the very first King of Maryland Tournament winner. A Grand Championship Tournament win is not outside the realm of likelihood.
Myles Millennium - Consider this man the wildcard of the tournament. Myles is an incredibly gifted athlete with an ego about his big as his ability. When we asked other Voltage Wrestling competitors to describe Myles Millennium in a few words, "The IT Factor" was mentioned by several competitors. Everything about this athlete just shouts "champion." However, to win a championship, you have to earn it.
Can this man best 3 other competitors en route to a Grand Championship? More importantly, who will be the final two competitors announced for the tournament? That we will find out Saturday on The Podcast Pit. With the athletes already announced, you can be sure the final two announced will be nothing short of top tier talent.
