Fireworks and Fisticuffs held many surprises for the fans of EMERGE, but perhaps no other surprise shocked everyone more than the return of “The Man Without Fear” Kyle Maverick after a ten-month absence. After capturing the EMERGE Outbreak Championship at EMERGE 24: Payoff and defeating former Outbreak Champion, “The Main Attraction” Donny Idol (who was savagely beaten down following the match), Maverick tragically broke his ankle, forcing him to relinquish the title. Per usual, controversy followed Maverick despite his injury.

Maverick was known to have heat with Idol, so many fans assumed that he orchestrated the beat down which left Donny Idol with a broken neck and unable to cash in a rematch clause. However, the hot-headed and charismatic Maverick was proven to not be associated with the attack and even visited Donny Idol numerous times while he was in the hospital.
Kyle Maverick returned to EMERGE Wrestling in the Red White and Bruise Battle Royal a changed man. Normally a rather bold and outspoken individual, Maverick quietly took in the scenery and was grateful for his opportunity to return during the battle royal, which he ended up winning, thus earning a shot at the EMERGE Heavyweight Championship against none other than the newly crowned champion, Scotty “Forever” Young.

Although Maverick was able to scrap his way through the rumble, many fans are concerned as to whether Maverick’s ankle is truly at 100%. In order to face Scotty Young, who is bound to exploit the weakness in Maverick’s ankle, Kyle Maverick must be fearless and completely healed in order to capture the EMERGE Championship. On August 4th at Parkside Elementary, will the man without fear put an abrupt end to the era of forever, or will Scotty Young be able to exploit Maverick’s weaknesses enough to successfully defend the EMERGE Championship?





 “Warfare” Jeremy Hadley is one of the most decorated superstars in the EMERGE locker room. During his time in EMERGE, he has captured almost every championship EMERGE has had to offer; the Outbreak Championship and the EMERGE Tag Team Championship, and now “Warfare” Jeremy Hadley is looking to add the EMERGE Heavyweight Championship to his collection. After appearing in the Red White and Bruise Battle Royal where he was able to make it to the final three competitors, Hadley has a taste for gold around his waist.


If Hadley were to capture the EMERGE Heavyweight Championship, he would be the first superstar to ever hold all three titles. But, this prestigious honor won’t be easy in attaining. Many men are vying for the EMERGE Heavyweight Championship sitting around Scotty “Forever” Young’s waist and each man is just as dangerous as the next.

Hadley is no stranger to adversity.  After the original Hellfire Club disbanded, Hadley developed a tag team with “Kinetic” Cole and ended up winning the EMERGE Tag Team Championship, which they held onto for six months.

Hadley is no stranger to the journey of becoming a champion. Time will tell if he will be able to capture this honor and cement himself deep into the history of EMERGE. Will his experience aide him in his pursuit or will the title allude his grasp?

For eleven months, the fans of EMERGE have been drug into a whirlwind of events as the situation between “The Main Attraction” Donny Idol and his former tag team partner and best friend Ricky Ruckus has escalated from best friends turning on each other to an all-out civil war within the locker room of EMERGE. This feud between Idol and Ruckus, which was supposed to culminate in the eight-man steel caged combat match at EMERGE Fireworks and Fisticuffs between Team Idol (Donny Idol, “Too Cool” T.J. Kemp, “The Midwest Mutt” Shawn Kemp, and Yukon Mike) and team Redrum (Ricky Ruckus, “IK3” Johnathan Wolf, “Proficient” Sage Philips, and Alister Wilde) has broken friendships, tag teams, and even family.  Although Team Idol did prevail, Ruckus abandoned his team once Donny Idol was able to jump from the top of the cage to insert himself into the match. As Ruckus distracted Donny from his team, Redrum fell apart at the hands of the three remaining members of Team Idol, who got the pin. By his team winning the caged combat match, Donny Idol was rewarded the opportunity by Commissioner Chris Lowe to pick a match of his choosing to face Ruckus one on one, getting the chance to end this once and for all.

After six months of keeping his involvement in the brutal attack on Donny Idol a secret and then choosing to hide in the darkest corners of the streets once he was revealed to be the attacker, what better way to ensure Ricky Ruckus doesn’t get away by challenging him to a match right up his alley?  At the conclusion of EMERGE Fisticuffs and Fireworks, Donny Idol challenged Ricky Ruckus to a no disqualification falls count anywhere street fight.

Nothing is off limits to both men and so much is on the line. Idol is just recently cleared by the medical staff of EMERGE to return to in-ring action after nine long months of recovery after the brutal neck injury inflicted by Ruckus. In a match where there are no disqualifications, there is no way for Idol to protect his neck from further damage. However, after months of built up rage towards Ruckus, Donny Idol is in perhaps the most dangerous mindset EMERGE has ever witnessed. If he is able to get his hands on Ricky Ruckus, Ruckus may get more than he bargained for.

On August 4th at EMERGE 35 Forever, Parkside Elementary will not be able to contain the contempt these men have for each other. As this brawl will be taken to the streets, the results of this street fight could change the course of EMERGE forever. Will Donny Idol finally be able to get revenge on Ricky Ruckus for the hell Ruckus has put him through or will the main attraction of EMERGE Wrestling be shut down for good?

Stay posted to the EMERGE Media outlets for an EXCLUSIVE Interview with Donny Idol conducted by our Head of Production, Casey Johnson from Power House Brewing.
