Legacy of Champions

Latest Headlines

The Law Comes to RingSharks!
Legacy of Champions' farm system is always in a state of flux in terms of talents coming and going, however, before the current Legends run the helm was always held steadfast. Now it is changing once again, as Mace Williams takes over for the departing Keith Kane as RingSharks Brand President. This marks the third Brand President, and second of RingSharks with Christian Keaton being in charge of the RingRats/uW era of the system.

Mace Williams has a longstanding reputation with LoC as both a trainer and an on-air personality/official. He is one of the head trainers of RingRats and this will mark his first tenure in control of the developmental territory. We wish Mace, and the entire RingSharks roster, the very best as they head into 2017.
Has the King Lost His Crown?
It was four years ago in Legacy of Champions that Derecho had made history. As a member of a team lead by the nefarious Jim Johnson, he defeated The Nashvillain to win the LoC Relentless Championship and on the same night, cashed it in on Suicide and won the LoC Underground Championship. This was right before LoC was purchased by jOlt Wrestling. Derecho prided himself on his technical wrestling ability and refused to defend the title with Underground Rules. He beat his opponents left and right using technical wrestling to the point where the fans became rabid and called for blood. Even his peers backstage felt that Derecho was making a mockery of the Underground Division

Derecho let the voices of everyone around him seep into his head. Those voices... were they of the people or was it the birth of the Underground Curse? Whatever the case may be, a vicious side to Derecho was shown... a vicious side that would carry him to the one year mark as Underground Champion. Throughout his year-long journey, Derecho earned the title of The King of the Underground, but later, many began to describe the Underground Division as Hell itself, thanks to its champion. Therefore, Derecho earned the new nickname The King of Hell.

Fast forward to today and we know that jOlt Wrestling is no more. It had been incorporated back into the LoC brand and when Derecho arrived, shivers were sent down people's spines. His trademarked viciousness was on display front and center upon his re-emergence as he put Billows through a table on the night of his return. Many feared that Billows would be the first body in a trail of destruction, but what followed was something that was completely unexpected.

Since his return to Legacy of Champions, Derecho has failed against every single opponent on Pay-Per-View save for one occasion where he defeated Billows. While Derecho did emerge from that match victorious, it's still planted in the back of Derecho's head that in their feud, Billows still won with a 2-1 score. Derecho also failed to win the Only the Strong event thanks to the efforts of Monte Burns, which caused Derecho to settle the score once and for all at this past Sunday's Icons event. Fueled by hatred and rage, Derecho and Monte Burns took it to each other in what was nothing more than a slugfest, but in the end, Derecho still lost.

Derecho's record here in LoC on Pay-Per-View is 1-4. Many are now saying that Derecho is nothing more than words and no action. The 35-year old is a veteran of the squared circle for 19 years and it is that longevity and respect that is keeping the former triple crown champion relevant in his days here in LoC, but the questions are being asked. Is this all Derecho can do now? Is the spark that lead him to success and an eventual Hall of Fame spot in jOlt faded into nothing more than a cold ember that's about to fade?

Many would state that interference is to blame for Derecho's losses. In his two losses to Billows, Monte Burns; who was under the guise of Karma's Collector, played a role in Derecho's defeat. His own brother, Mattock, did the same in his defeat to Monte Burns. Derecho's only Pay-Per-View win against Billows came when it was one on one and no outside interference. Seems like a legitimate excuse, but given Derecho's past and the fact that nobody could touch him no matter what the numbers game looked like, it makes one wonder if the excuse is more of a mask to something Derecho doesn't want to admit: That he simply may not have it anymore.

Only the future will tell for sure, but Derecho's days of being on top of this industry may finally be over.

Don't Bet Against The House
The wrestling world is still buzzing after what happened at the end of LoC’s latest pay-per-view, ICONS. After successfully defending the Legacy Championship in his toughest test to date “The Wildcard” Jack Harmen and the other members of the Four Corners main event found themselves as victims of a surprise assault by the House.

The Las Vegas-themed faction made their presence felt and no one was safe from their assault. Jack Harmen was beaten with a chair mercilessly by the House’s new leader, the former LoC Tag Team and Relentless champion Kaus. Mary-Lynn Mayweather and Sonny Silver found themselves as unwilling victims of the attack along with Lindsay Troy and even Jonathan Conspiracy. The menacing assault culminated in what is being called a complete dissection of the arm and shoulder of “The Last Real Man in the Sport” Jeremy Ryan. Kaus struck the arm and shoulder of Jeremy Ryan close to twenty times with a steel chair and completely changed the complexion of the Legacy division. Considered by many to be the favorite to win, the 2016 Only The Winner is now rumored to miss several months of action from a broken arm and damaged shoulder.

In an exclusive with legacyofchampions.com following the assault, the Shining Diamond and other members of the House had a few words about the assault and other events of the evening:

Kaus on the main event: “… No seriously. Why are you even asking a question about why we did what we did? I told you all right before the main event that the future was coming sooner than people would expect. I’m a man that does what he says and people don’t like that. The House are done playing by the rules set forth by others and that’s why we did what we did. When Jonathan Conspiracy ran things he nearly ran this place into the ground and made my life a living hell because I was one of the only few man enough to stick things out while everybody else tucked their tails between their legs and walked out. When Scott Riktor took the reins, he did even worse by picking and choosing his favorites and rewarding them with title shot after title shot. That’s why Lindsay Troy gets title shots and that’s why Graham Youngblood gets title shots … not because they’re worthy but because they’re management’s favorites.”

Adam Roebuck on attacking Jonathan Conspiracy during the main event: “I hurt him because it feels great to hurt people. Stop asking retarded questions.”

Derrick Huber on the tag team division: “Big Slick won’t front … this is a very stacked division full of some great talent. The New Breed, Natural Athletes, the Fall of Adam, Legion of Dairy and many others … and at the end of the gauntlet we beat ‘em! Some people will cry foul over the fact that Big Bucks and I were the last team in the gauntlet but we didn’t draw the short straw – LoD and New Breed did. If any of these kids can’t keep up with Sin City’s Strongest, that’s their fault and not ours. We’ll be holding these LoC Tag Team titles for a long long time and we’ll let them go when we retire someday.”

Zane Roebuck on not winning the Flyweight championship: “I’m sorry, my friend, I don’t know what that title is. You can’t contain this much talent, charisma, greatness, and perfect teeth into a division for vanilla midgets. Besides you all saw it – I am now a champion! I am one third of the LoC Tag Team champions and we’ll be defending these titles under HOUSE RULES.”

Charlotte Huber on her victory: “We told you, hon, that the Starlets are better than the Bombshells and Sarah and I proved that! Just you wait until Legends 25 when Sarah and I shock the world. You’ll have to tune in to find out.

Kaus on the future of the House: “Complete and total control of Legacy of Champions. The first step starts with Jack Harmen and the Legacy championship. If you want to know what I do you'll have to wait like everybody else.
