WrestleZone had a tremendous 2018 that saw many twists and turns throughout the 12 months. Moments were created that will last a lifetime, new faces were introduced, match of the year contenders were held. It truly was WZ’s greatest year since bursting on to the scene in 2008. 2019 promises to be another can’t miss year for WrestleZone fans, with the first show of the year already set to feature the returns of Krieger and Jack Jester. Before we get to Summerhill Showdown though, let’s take a look at five things that I personally think have the potential to go down in 2019!
Jason Reed Wins The Undisputed Championship
What better way to Make WrestleZone Great Again than by winning the Undisputed Championship? Jason Reed has been one of WrestleZone’s top performers this year and has managed to garner some impressive victories over the likes of Scotty Swift and Bryan Tucker. It might seem early to be saying this, but he’s my current pick to win the 2019 Regal Rumble Match. There’s so many stories that can be built around him and who knows, maybe Reed will unveil the other four members of his Cabinet in his quest for gold. Time will tell if 2019 is the year WrestleZone is made great again.
The Granite City Hotshots Reunite
Bit of a longshot, but hear me out. Shawn Johnson’s not doing anything. Bryan Tucker’s not doing anything. The tag division could do with some more teams. What else do I need to say? Shawn returned at Christmas Chaos, although we don’t really know if he’s back for good or if it was a one-time appearance. Bryan hasn’t really been up to much as of late, with his last match being at the end of September. That makes it even better though – not only would The Hotshots be reforming, but it would be a return for the two in general. I guess you could say it’s written in the stars…
A Women’s Championship Is Introduced
I wrote an article on this back in September, so I’ll keep it short here. I’ve seen plenty of comments online from fans who wish to see a WrestleZone Women’s Championship brought in. WZ may not have the division just now, but there’s loads of time to build one up. You’ve got Sammii Jayne there to be a starting point, along with the occasional appearances of Viper. Then there’s Anastasia and Nova Moore from the training academy (although the latter hasn’t been seen in a ring since June). Plus, the likes of Kay Lee Ray and The Owens Twins having appeared in the past. There’s potential for it to happen. That’s all I’m saying.
Cysto Wins A Championship
I don’t want this to happen as much as the next person, but I’ve got a feeling that it’s going to. Cysto picked up some pretty impressive victories this year over Alan Sterling and Bradley Evans, both of which came out of nowhere. A quick rollup is all it would take for The Tangerine Dream to capture the Tri-Counties Championship. Could it happen? Well, of course it could – anything can happen. Never thought I’d be predicting Cysto winning gold. New year, new me and all that nonsense.
The Outfit Win The Tag Team Championships
I didn’t really know what to put as the last one. Originally had Blue Thunder turning his back on the fans as the final one, but that’s already happened at Christmas Chaos so why not go with this? I’ve always spoken very highly of The Outfit – everything about them is fantastic to watch. This one should perhaps be saved for later in the year to build them up a little bit more but by the end of 2019, I can 100% see the duo standing there with gold in their possession.
