THE ROAD TO WAR OF THE WORLDS BEGINS
KARNIVALL vs NATHAN TURNER
Both of these guys came up short at Crown of the King Cobra, but at L!GHTS OUT #32, one of them gets a chance for a rebound. Nathan Turner put up a helluva fight against Johanna Krieger, in which both of these competitors made their Union Battleground debuts. Turner looked to still have a little bit of ring rust, but showed a lot of promise that he still has what it takes to hang around, and the fans certainly had his back. Karnivall gave a valiant effort against Kaven Drell, but the steamrolling War Horse Champion put a stop on The Oddity’s trickery in Atlantic City. This opening bout will be a good test for both men to see if Turner worked out the kinks in his strategy and whether Karnivall has come up with a few new tricks up his sleeve.
KAVEN DRELL vs CLETUS FRANKLIN
The War Horse Champion continued his dominant reign at Crown of the King Cobra, and now he will defend it once again, this time against the newest signee to the Battleground, Cletus Franklin, in Jackson, Tennessee at the Oman Arena. Drell has quickly become one of, if not, the most talked about competitors since his jaw-dropping debut, but our newest contracted competitor looks to derail the hype train and make way for his own path. Will Drell meet an untimely fall, or will Franklin become another victim in his debut?
KIMITSU ZOMBIE vs JOHANNA KRIEGER
One of the mainstays in Union Battleground since its inception has been Kimitsu Zombie. She has taken on all comers with a menacing grin on her face, and LO #32 will be no different. After defending her Trench War Championship at Crown of the King Cobra, she will look to do it again at the Oman Arena against one of the newest competitors, Johanna Krieger. Krieger made her debut in the opening bout at the Atlantic City super show, and her performance was impressive enough to earn herself a shot at championship gold. However, Kimitsu is not an easy opponent to slay, so Krieger will have to bring everything she has in this war.
THE NEW AGE KILLERS vs DEAD CUTE
In the main event of the evening, our very first Battalion match of season three begins the first of three War of the Worlds Qualifier bouts. Winner of this match will go on to main event the April super show in a fatal four-way tag match for the Battalion Championships. Our very own Maverick has brought along his partner James Raymond and the two will look across the ring to face a returning Fallon Lockhart and DTW World Champion Josh Kennedy. Both Maverick and Lockhart entered the Crown of the King Cobra Tournament this season, but both fell in the opening round. Maverick won a triple threat play-in bout, but lost to Datura, and Fallon Lockhart put up a great fight against Finn Whelan, but it just wasn’t her night. This match-up features a wide range of styles clashing all across the board, and anything can happen in a match like this.
