After a year’s hiatus due to the COVID 19 lockdowns, IGNITE Wrestling returned in style to Walking Tree Brewery in Vero Beach, FL for a fifth-anniversary show blowout that featured multiple amazing debuts.
Episode one includes the debut of ring announcer Phil Stamper aka The President Of Wrestling manning the microphone in style. First match to kick off the event debuted promo king Captain Aaron Nova taking on Jarett Diaz. Diaz had worked primarily in scramble matches to earn his slot on the main card and his return was an event to remember.
The match seesawed with both opponent showing why they are the fresh young talent on the scene with Diaz scoring the win while Nova ruled the crowd.
The second match of the episode pitting fan favorite champions TECH against fellow fan favs That Klassic Tag Team. Due to extenuating circumstances, Mike Monroe was unable to appear so TC Read was joined by his Gangrel Asylum tag mate Steve Beck.
That Klassic Tag Team took the fight to the duo but in the end after several insane moves TC Read and Steve Beck got the win in this non title defense.

IGNITE Wrestling returned to Walking Tree Brewery to celebrate five years as the Treasure Coast’s only locally owned and operated pro wrestling company. We couldn’t have just a quiet afternoon so we rocked the brewery with the debuts of Captain Aaron Nova, Robert Martyr, Steve Beck and Ozzy Kilmeister.
And you can’t have a party without surprise guests and we did that up in true IGNITE fashion as the surge haired siren Aspyn Rose swam back into the scene. Can’t wait to see her impact on the division and the newly forming women’s tag division.
Ring announcing duties for this special event were helmed by none other than The President of Wrestling himself, Phil Stamper who brought the energy!
But the shock/swerve of the day was when the curtains parted to reveal Kilynn King would be facing none other than the Wanderer of the Wasteland, Leon the Terrible for the vacated Undisputed title.
