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.

What a month, what a show and what a huge change in the IGNITE Wrestling Top 10 Undisputed Rankings as a woman has made the list for the first time and we have seen major changes as voted for by our ranking committee comprised of select IGNITE fans.
The shock of the day is the crowning of a new champion as our belt was vacated and Kilynn King cashed in her contract to face the surprise opponent Leon The Terrible. Other significant changes include ranking increases for Justin Blax, the inclusion of Timmy Lou Retton and moves from Beastly.
Come May, we will see who remains, who joins the ranking and our champion on his first defense. Stay tuned!
IGNITE Wrestling Lapel Pins become this season’s hot item as they launched for the holiday shopping season. Lapel pins have had quite the resurgence in recent years so it is no surprise that our fans have asked for (and will receive) the opportunity to purchase their very own IGNITE Wrestling lapel pins to add to their collections. There is a lapel pin for everybody today, it appears. There are designs for nature lovers, environmental activists, shoppers, music fans, and artists. So naturally, they have taken off in pro wrestling for fans who want something to show their love and support of indy wrestling, particular companies, and wrestlers that they love and support.
When you think about it pretty much everyone has at some point in their lives bought a lapel pin. You might have seen pins from cartoon shows, sporting teams and how many times have you seen the Presidents wearing the American Flag as a lapel pin?
What we love is that you don’t have to wear them just on your jackets. Of course, they naturally look great in denim and leather jackets but pins aren’t limited to just be worn in jackets, they can work on your hat, scarf, backpack, purse, or satchel. The possibilities are endless.
Florida indy wrestler “Captain” Aaron Nova is set to debut on January 23, 2021 against the returning Jarett Diaz in singles action. This marks the first singles appearance for Diaz who has appeared in “scramble” matches in previous shows showcasing his talent against other young and hungry performers for the opportunity to move into singles action. Nova, who has appeared in several parody videos with That Klassic Tag Team is known for his highly entertaining promo videos. We look forward to what both these young lions bring to the ring and to the fans.
For our fifth consecutive year, we have recognized the most beloved, hated, and best moments that the year brought us. 2020 may have only had one show due to the global pandemic but it will was a year that went down in history for our company as we crowned a new champion, Troy Hollywood. We saw new tag team combinations awe the world and we saw several key roster members make the transition to All Elite Wrestling this year on both their Dark and Dynamite shows. So without further ado, our fans have spoken loudly in a record-setting response to let us know who they felt deserved this year’s recognition.

When IGNITE Wrestling management began planning our fifth-anniversary show in January 2021, we knew that we wanted to have an exceptional ring announcer to complement the line up for the show. The decision was simple and the “President Of Wrestling” Phil Stamper will be handling the mic duties for this awesome event making his Florida debut.
Stamper is an actor, producer, and professional wrestling personality. He is known for Ninjas vs. Monsters (2012), Evil Twins (2018), Bad Dogs (2015), and has worked for over 70 professional wrestling companies spanning six countries.
As CBS 12 Morning featured the uniqueness of Vero Beach, they included IGNITE Wrestling as one of the businesses that sets Vero Beach apart. IGNITE Wrestling Owner Kim Artlip sat down with CBS12’s Sam Kerrigan to talk about our start, present and future of our business here on the Treasure Coast and beyond as Vero Beach’s only wrestling company.
