Alex Cruz Wins IGNITE Inaugural Invitational Tournament
It is a tale as old as time when Alex Cruz won the IGNITE Inaugural Invitational Tournament. From a crushing defeat previously when Cruz debuted at IGNITE Wrestling in April 2017, he was a man on a mission. He came to IGNITE to show the Florida wrestling scene that he is a force to be reckoned with and plowed through the competition making it to the final match to determine the first Undisputed Champion. Through treachery and interference, he lost his opportunity to claim the belt but he’s bided his time.
Cruz has grown quite the following at IGNITE becoming a fan favorite. So when IGNITE management announced the tournament he was one of the first grapplers to answer the call. Battling a field of formidable opponents, he worked his way through the wily ring veteran Justin Black, fan favorite Rex Bacchus to face his nemesis, Aaron Epic once again for the accolades. This time without the outside interference factor of the Midnight Mermaid Aspyn Rose the story had a different ending.
These two warriors went toe to toe in a fast furious match which Epic tried repeatedly to put the younger man down hard and fast but as Cruz screamed in defense, “He will not die” and he evaded the fury of “Deathproof” Aaron Epic to win a stunning upset and stake his claim for a rematch at our upcoming show. Will Alex Cruz become the next IGNITE Champion? Time will tell.
