Preview: Target Wrestling (@TargetWrestling) ‘Live in Carlisle’ (13 May 2023)

By David Wharton

After an impressive double header for the Target 10th Anniversary Shows last month, which saw four belts gain new champions (including the first ever holder of the new Women’s Championship), it’s a new era in Target Wrestling with new faces and old hands facing each other on Saturday night.

Target Wrestling High Octane Division Championship – Rossy Rascal (c) vs Damon Havok

Rossy Rascal, the Judo throwing new Hi-Octane champ, will face The King of Short Style in what should be a fascinating encounter.

Will the Rascal’s unorthodox offence defeat his wily opponent and former High Octane champ who knows all of the shortcuts to victory?

Logan Reid vs Kris Kendall

The high flying teen sensation Logan Reid is facing his toughest opponent yet in the hard brawling Cumbrian scum Kris Kendal. Anything could happen in this intriguing clash of styles.

Target Wrestling Tag Team Championships – The Models (Danny Hope & Joey Hayes) (c) vs Jimmy T & Lucas Alexander

Jimmy T’s expected tag partner had to drop out due to injury, but he surely couldn’t have found a better replacement than former Triple Crown champion Lucas Alexander?

Unfortunately they’re going up against ones of the UK’s best and most experienced tag teams in The Models, Joey Hayes and Danny Hope.

It can take some time for a new team to properly gel together, so you’d have to give The Models the advantage but Jimmy and Lucas are skilled and they have more than a fighter’s chance.

Tommy Jupiter vs Tim Strange

Tommy Jupiter is making his Target debut and he couldn’t face a much tougher first opponent than the sadistic Canadian Cowboy Tim Strange.

The odds must be against Tommy but there would be no better way to announce his presence on the roster than to defeat the former tag champion.

Moxie Malone, Buddy Roller, & Owen Ozzy Michaels vs Autumn, & Legends Never Die (Fulton King & Sami Sparx

Legends Never Die and Autumn have had each other’s backs for quite a while, now teaming up on a few occasions but they will have their work cut out with the flamboyant Buddy Roller, the technical wizard Owen Michaels and the debuting Moxie Malone who has made quite the name for herself over the last year.

This match promises to be quite the show and is almost impossible to call.

Martin Kirby & Xia Brookside vs Medallion & Ivy Mist

After winning the Heavyweight and Women’s Championships at the last show Medallion and Ivy Mist have cemented themselves a position as the power couple in Target.

They will face a considerable challenge on Saturday night though against the previous Triple Crown champion Martin Kirby and former NXT UK superstar the debuting Xia Brookside.

Medallion and Ivy will surely be looking create a new era dominance over Target Wrestling and smash their opponent’s dials in. But given the quality of the wrestlers they are facing that will surely be anything but easy.
