Southside Wrestling have announced a championship match for their October 2nd event, ‘Kirbymania’ at the Corporation in Sheffield.
It has been confirmed that Chris Tyler and Stixx of Stixx & Flips will defend the Southside Tag Team Championship against The Models’ Danny Hope and Joey Hayes in Sheffield on October 2nd at ‘Kirbymania’.
Southside Wrestling announced the match with the following:
SOUTHSIDE TAG TEAM TITLE’S ON THE LINE IN SHEFFIELD! IS GOLD THE LATEST FASHION?!
Stixx & Flips, the team of Stixx and Chris Tyler, won the Southside Tag Team Title’s the last time we were in Sheffield. Since that time they have been defended champions with successful defenses over the Intercoastal Violence Factory (Chris Brookes & Travis Banks) in a regular tag match and then ICVF, The Young Wolves (Tyler Bate & Daniel Moloney) and The London Riots (Rob Lynch & James Davis) in a Four Corner tag team match. With Speed King around the corner, the next scheduled Tag Title match will be taking place in the venue where Stixx & Flips won the belt, Sheffield Corporation on Sunday the 2nd of October.
After defeating arguably a lot of immediate challengers to their titles, we allowed Stixx & Flips to throw out their own gauntlet. They sent invitations out to former Southside Tag Team Champions and Tag Teams that have held gold across the UK with the stipulation that the first available team to respond would be given the title shot. Well that certainly worked out in favour of The Models, Danny Hope and Joey Hayes. In Southside they are yet to win a single match with losses to The Hunter Brothers in June 2014 and a loss to Martin Kirby and D’Lo Brown at our last Sheffield show. However outside of Sheffield they have been a dominant force in the North West with tag title reigns in Futureshock Wrestling along with gold up in Scotland and they have been tag champions in Wales for over the past year now.
They may come out to the ring in outlandish outfits and accessories and their cat walk antics before the match may seem disarming to some. However inside that ring they are a well oiled unit that have teamed together now for the better part of nine years. One glance, one look and they already know what the other is planning and can react to it in moments. That same synchronicity they display in their cat walk before the match they show in their matches as they are a tandem and a team that have been together for almost a decade now, knowing each other inside and out. When it comes to experience, team work and success they more than defeat Stixx & Flips records on paper.
We have fighting and defending Champions on our hands. And although The Models may not be the team Southside management would have selected due to their record in a Southside ring, Stixx & Flips may have inadvertantly chosen their own un-doing as they are facing a team with years worth of experience and gold to their name. On Sunday the 2nd of October in Sheffield, the Southside Tag Team Title belts could become fashion accessories if our Champions make a single mistake.
