The Calm Before: Cat Got Your Tongue
Tomorrow at Cat Got Your Tongue, a great divide will stand between Marq Quen and Anthony Gangone. The chasm between One Night Only is a guaranteed opportunity at the Excellence Championship Series.
I’ve seen Anthony and Marq stand united against all fronts in Excellence Professional Wrestling since I’ve been with this wonderful company. I thought this day would never come.
In my first night with Excellence, I was a timekeeper and watched Anthony Gangone dissect Alex Mason with what I would have thought were lazer-guided strikes that collided with the cranium of “The Carnivore” that put him in a concussed state and kept him out of an EPW ring for 5 months. That same night I watched Marq Quen defeat Dan Champion. David versus Goliath. In this iteration of the story, our David did not have a slingshot and a stone. His weapon is his form. EPW fans know this to be true: Marq Quen can do ANYTHING he wants to inside the squared circle. You tell him to jump and he doesn’t ask how high. He just shoots for the skies. The biggest opponent Marq Quen had on that night was not that Dan Champion was built like a brick house. It was that he was limited by the low ceiling in the Forest Lodge. Yet, he succeeded.
From that night on, One Night Only would go on to become the only un-pinned and un-submitted team in Excellence Pro. That’s not from a lack of competition.
Has anyone forgotten the three match set with The Osirian Portal? The series that was so influential on both teams that the Osirian Portal retired the Osirian Sacrament after that series?
Has anyone forgotten about the duo facing off against the vicious and malicious tandem from Bled Island, The Batiri? Two matches that tested the mettle of both teams to the point where neither team truly feels that it’s resolved.
No one should have forgotten the collision of the top two teams in EPW today when One Night Only faced off with Too Many Cooks during Flea & Tick Weekend. A match-up so tough for One Night Only, they had to enlist the help of the Boar of Moldova to earn the victory after fleeing from the scene just two nights prior.
As I said, I thought I would never see the day. But I should have. One thing drives One Night Only more than anything and that’s greatness. Excellence only has one thing that determines that greatness and that is the Excellence Championship.
When One Night Only thought they had the cat in the bag in regards to a loophole in the wording of victories, Edgar got their tongues. There’s room for One Night Only, but only one representative from that team will compete in the Excellence Championship Series. Will the King of Strikes clip the wings of Marq Quen? Will Baby New Year ascend to new heights and crash down on Anthony Gangone’s championship aspirations?
It’s not too late to save the date. August 13, 2016 at 7:00pm: One Night Only Explodes. The only question is could One Night Only ever be the same after Saturday?
You know I’ll be there. Will you?

Meow! Greetings and salutations to all you cats and kittens out there from your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence!
Happy Independence Day! I hope you had a great time celebrating our country’s fierce fight for independence and you join us next Saturday night when we use our paws and claws to fight for our independence!
Last month, we presented a double-header of Excellence action with “Flea” and “Tick”. Being the first feline wrestling promoter, sometimes putting together a show can be challenging (even though it’s rewarding). “Flea” and “Tick” weekend was my biggest test to date. Thank you to all the Excellence fans who joined us for what turned out to be our Starrcade. There was singing, flying, and fun times.
On Friday night at “Flea”, Howie Timberché serenaded the fans at Intermission and the Excellence locker room joined in. I have a beautiful howling voice, but Howie has a soulful voice too.
Francis Kip Stevens and The Abominable CPA, together known as the The Breakfast Club, were victorious against Danger Jameson and Rembrandt Lewis, who can’t seem to cut a break. Kobald put a the good fight, but lost to the devilish and deceptive Jeremy Leary of Blitzkrieg Pro. I was a happy kitty when I saw Kobald win. It was a bit of revenge for me against that creep Leary. The Boar of Moldova soundly defeated Jimi Blaze and Blind Rage won his ninth point in the Excellence Championship Series (ECS) by beating Ken Broadway. Icarus flew over Havoc to score a victory. Vanity beat Karen Q. and won the privilege of wrestling “Lady Excellence” Deonna Purrazzo at “Tick”. When EPW’s two undefeated teams met, Too Many Cooks (Assistant Chef Smoothe Blackmon and Sloppy Joe) defeated One Night Only (Anthony Gangone and Marq Quen) via count-out. In the main event, Gran Akuma was victorious over our Friendly Neighborhood Psychopath Smiley.
On Sunday afternoon at “Tick”, Vanity tried to make the best of her opportunity, but lost to Deonna, who had a run in with Blind Rage. Rage beat Hallowicked in a farce of a match that could be described with the distasteful phrase “finger poke of doom”. Offended by the disgraceful scene, Danger and Rembrandt came out and challenged the two nightmare warriors. While they fought bravely, Blind Rage and Hallowicked were victorious. The Boar of Moldova and Kobald, master of the gore and spear respectively wrestled to a double count-out. The bruiser Havoc got back on the winning path with a victory against Clutch Adams. One Night Only defeated Too Many Cooks, ending their undefeated streak. Each team is tied and has one win against the other, I’m a curious cat, so I wonder who would come out on top if they meet a third time? And two more wrestlers earned entry in the ECS – Icarus won his place by beating long-time rival and former partner Gran Akuma and Oleg the Usurper beat Smiley to earn his.
Coming up this Saturday, it’s “Paws & Claws: The Fight for Independence III”! The fur will fly in Sellersville, PA at the Forrest Lodge when the doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7 pm! Tickets are $20 for front row, $15 for general admission, and kids are free with a paid GA ticket. Ken Broadway, Clutch Adams, Jimi Blaze, and Danger Jameson will battle in a four-way match. Ken Broadway wants to find his stride. He needs to qualify for the ECS or else he’s out of Team Akuma, but his three opponents want nothing more than to get their first win in the series. Rembrandt is on a roll in singles competition with a win over his partner Danger at “Smelly Cat”, but Havoc has been devastating since debuting and winning the “Turkey Tumbler” at “20% Gratuity” last year. Four of the five men to qualify for the ECS will be in tag action. Icarus and Oleg the Usurper will fight Hallowicked and Gran Akuma. This is the first-time these four wrestlers have teamed up and bragging right are on the line. And in a huge match up, Smiley and Blind Rage will go to war, with the prize being their 10th victory and entry into the Excellence Championship Series!

Greetings and salutations to all you cats and kittens out there from your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence!
Thank you Excellence fans for braving the last bit of winter weather that hit our area and joining us for “Scratching Post” earlier this month!
In the main event, Oleg the Usurper and the Boar of Moldova battled in a “Sellersville Slugfest”. The two were connected by a thick, unbreakable rope, so that neither man could escape the other. Oleg and the Boar fought all over the Forrest Lodge, but in the end the valiant Viking got his revenge! Kobald, the Goblin Prince, defeated stuntman extraordinaire, Danger Jameson. In a special tag team match, Vanity teamed with Adam Falcon to beat Matty Ice and a returning rock star Matt Sells.
Blind Rage defeated Havoc, thanks to Hallowicked’s help. However, Wicked lost to Icarus. It seems that he no longer cares about winning matches now that he’s in the Excellence Championship Series (ECS). In a first-time ever encounter, Gran Akuma defeated the “Funky Pharaoh” Amasis and earned his tenth win. He is the third wrestler to qualify for the ECS, joining Hallowicked and the Boar.
There are only five more spots in the tournament and the Championship Series will continue until they are all filled. Smiley is close to qualifying with nine wins. Right behind him with eight wins are Icarus and Oleg. Rage has seven wins and Ken Broadway has five. Any or all of these men can qualify for the ECS and become the first Excellence Champion!
Our next event is “Smelly Cat”. (For the record, I do not smell. I clean myself often.) Join us on Saturday, May 14th at our home, the Forrest Lodge in Sellersville, PA, for another night of the best professional wrestling anywhere!
The undefeated One Night Only (Anthony Gangone/Marq Quen) will be back in action against Unspeakable (Smiley/Nick “The Silent Assassin”, managed Ariela Nyx).
Karen Q. impressed the Excellence fans during her debut against “Lady Excellence” Deonna Purrazzo and she wants more competition! I’m working on fulfilling her request right now! Speaking about “Lady Excellence”, Purrazzo will return to EPW at “Smelly Cat”.
The evil duo of Hallowicked and Blind Rage leveled a challenge to Icarus and Havoc. If they accept the challenge, I will sign the match and make it official!
Not to be left out, Too Many Cooks (Assistant Chef Smoothe Blackmon/Sloppy Joe) are whipping up some new, delicious dishes in preparation for “Smelly Cat”!
As some of you may have heard, my Facebook profile was removed because I have to verify my identity. Ultimately, I was able to get it straightened out (having claws can be a good thing). You can find me on Facebook here under Edgar Excel.
If you love EPW, you can like our Facebook Page and follow our Twitter. We also have a YouTube Channel featuring footage from our live events, 5 Minute Matches, and videos featuring the stars of EPW! Also, visit our website at www.excelleceprofessionalwrestling.com for more updates and missives from me, Edgar Excellence, the Head Cat of Excellence!
Before I sign off, I would be remiss if I didn’t address the Jeremy Leary situation. He came into the Forrest Lodge uninvited and interrupted “Kittens Mittens” right after Intermission. While he did catch the attention of everyone in EPW, he didn’t earn our respect with his words or actions. Now, he’s threatening to show up at “Smelly Cat”. Hopefully, he’ll reconsider, because he is certainly not welcome in Excellence.
Meow!
Edgar

Greetings and salutations to all you cats and kittens out there from your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence!
This Saturday, we return to our home at the Forrest Lodge VFW in Sellersville, PA for the first time this year, as we at Excellence Professional Wrestling (EPW) proudly present “Kittens Mittens”! Tickets are $20 for front row, $15 for general admission, and as always, kids 12 and under are admitted free with a paying adult! Bell time is at 7 pm, doors open at 6:30 pm, and with eight huge matches, you will want to get there early and get the best seats possible!
The young team of Danger Jameson and Rembrandt Lewis will wrestle Smiley and Nick, accompanied by Ariela Nyx! Nick and Smiley teamed up back in the Summer of 2014, but Danger and Lewis have more recent experience. Nick and Smiley have Nyx in their corner, and who knows how she will get involved. On Saturday, we’ll see which team will come out on top!
Karen Q will make her Excellence debut at “Kittens Mittens” to take on “Lady Excellence” Deonna Purrazzo! Purrazzo has been traveling the country taking on the best female wrestlers, so Karen has a huge challenge in front of her. But if she can beat Purrazzo in her debut, she might be able to call herself “Lady Excellence”!
A newly angered and talkative Blind Rage will take on Icarus! After the match between Hallowicked and Icarus, Rage attacked the Winged Ring Warrior as Wicked stood triumphant. Icarus wants revenge, while Rage wants someone to take his frustration out on. When these two men and former partners collide, who will be left standing?
Too Many Cooks (Assistant Chef Blackmon and Sloppy Joe) will take on Ca$hflow Ken Broadway and a mystery partner. Too Many Cooks are as successful as they are popular and are undefeated as a team. Broadway is a young, talented wrestler, but crafty like a veteran. Who knows who he’ll choose for his partner? Too Many Cooks might suffer their first loss if they don’t take Broadway and his tag team partner seriously.
In his debut at “20% Gratuity”, Havoc put in an amazing performance by winning the “Turkey Tumbler” match! He’s looking to impress the Excellence fans once again at “Kittens Mittens” when he wrestles Hallowicked! Wicked is one of the best in EPW and the first wrestler to enter the Excellence Championship Tournament! If Havoc can defeat him, he’ll propel himself to the top of EPW!
The Boar of Moldova has become Excellence’s bruiser, and after the recently returned Kobald. However, The Prince of Goblins is cunning and has a spear of his own he wants to use to put down the Boar before flushing him down the demon’s toilet. Will Kobald’s speed help him outwit the Boar or will Boar’s size and strength put Kobald on the injured list permanently?
“Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy will return to EPW after a short absence to take on an old friend in Dan Champion! While I’m looking forward to his match, I’m not looking forward its conclusion, as this will be Champion’s last wrestling match. Dan is one of the best wrestlers and performers in the Excellence locker room. He will be deeply missed by me and everyone else in the EPW locker room and the office!
In the main event, The Batiri (Obariyon and Kodama) will return to EPW to take on One Night Only (Marq Quen and Anthony Gangone) in a rematch from “20% Gratuity”! The Batiri took ONO to the limit and almost ended their undefeated streak! At “Kittens Mittens”, The Batiri will return to EPW and wrestle ONO again in the main event! Will ONO stay undefeated after Saturday or will the devilish demonic duo be victorious?
In addition to these huge matches, I’ve tasked my Administrative Assistant Babs to work on a special project which we’ll reveal at the event! Plus, I may have some other surprises up my sleeves (or mittens) lined up for the show…trust me when I say you won’t want to miss “Kittens Mittens” this Saturday!
Excellence was happy to be part of National Pro Wrestling Day ’16! Broadway represented EPW well in the Young Lions Cup and we presented a tag team match – Havoc and Danger versus Gangone and Sasha Jenkins! Purchase the event for only $9.99 right here!
If you love EPW, we have a Facebook Page and Twitter, so be sure to like and follow us. We also have a YouTube Channel featuring footage from our last event, “20% Gratuity”, “Excellence Live”, 5 Minute Matches, and videos featuring the stars of EPW!

Greetings and salutations to all you cats and kittens out there from your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence!
First, thank you all for the birthday wishes. The Excellence Office got together and took me out to lunch, where I enjoyed my favorite foods like tuna, salmon, and milk. Delicious! They also bought me catnip and crunchy treats as gifts. It was a wonderful day.
Speaking of wonderful days, everyone in Excellence was thrilled to be a part of the 4th annual National Pro Wrestling Day (NPWD) on February 6th! The positive power of pro-wrestling was evident that day, as we exceeded our $2,400 goal for The Polaris Project. Thank you again to CHIKARA’s Director of Fun Mike Quackenbush and all our friends at CHIKARA Pro for including us!
I am very proud of everyone who was there in Reading, PA! Thank you for representing us so well! While he didn’t win, Team Akuma’s Ca$hflow Ken Broadway put on a good performance in CHIKARA’s Young Lions Cup XII tournament and the quartet of Havoc, Danger Jameson, Marq Quen, and Sasha Jenkins tore down the house in a tag match! Vanity escorted the “new and improved” Chuck TaylorTM as he made his “debut”! Nick the Silent Assassin and Tim Taylor greeted fans at the Excellence table!
CHIKARA is taking pre-orders for NPWD ’16 right now! Purchase the event for only $9.99 right here!
Our next event will be March 12th, when we will present “Kittens Mittens”! We will be back at our home in the Forrest Lodge in Sellersville, PA for the first time in 2016!
Since the start of Excellence, my office received numerous requests to bring The Batiri (Obariyon and Kodama) here! At “20% Gratuity”, I signed them to a match with One Night Only (Marq Quen and Anthony Gangone)! They had an excellent contest, which you can watch on our YouTube channel. Since then, the fans have been begging me to bring them back. I love our fans, and want to give them what they want!
So at “Kittens Mittens”, The Batiri will return to EPW and wrestle ONO again in the main event! ONO was victorious in their first encounter against the more experienced duo. But can they continue their winning streak and defeat the devilish demons one more time?
I also signed a tag team match between Danger and Rembrandt Lewis and Smiley and Nick, accompanied by Ariela Nyx! Smiley and Nick teamed up back in the Summer of 2014, but Danger and Lewis have more experience. And if they win, they might just get that coffee with Icarus after all.
“The Nightmare Warrior” Hallowicked, “Winged Ring Warrior” Icarus, The Boar of Moldova, “Lady Excellence” Deonna Purrazzo, the “O.G. Doll” Vanity, Gran Akuma, and “Life Champion” Dan Champion will also be there! Karen Q .will make her debut and “Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy will return to EPW after a brief absence!
I will be announcing more matches as we approach “Kittens Mittens”. Plus, I’ve tasked my Administrative Assistant Babs to work on a special project which we’ll reveal at the event too!
Don’t forget to friend me on Facebook. I promise not to bring you bad luck! Also, visit our website for more updates and missives from me, Edgar Excellence, the Head Cat of Excellence!

Greetings and salutations to all you cats and kittens out there from your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence!
Winter storm Jonas lived up to the hype and we had to cancel “Let The Cat Out Of The Bag”. I want to apologize to all you dedicated Excellence Pro (EPW) fans. We hate canceling events as we love putting on the best professional wrestling for you. But last month, we couldn’t guarantee everyone’s safety due to the blizzard conditions. Plus, I didn’t want to get my paws wet. I hate snow!
Instead, we presented some great EPW matches for everyone to curl up and enjoy with a cup of hot cocoa and lots of marshmallows (or just milk)! First, we started with tag team action when Too Many Cooks (Assistant Chef Smooth Blackmon & Sloppy Joe) took on The Punk Rock All Stars (Drake Carter and Shaun Cannon) during “Pork Chops” on 6/13/15. Next, the ladies were center stage when “Lady Excellence” Deonna Purrazzo wrestled Tessa Blanchard at “Tiramisu” on September 12th. From “Turducken” on July 11th, we shared the third match in a “Best of Three Series” between One Night Only (Marq Quen & Anthony Gangone) and The Osirian Portal (Amasis & Ophidian). The action continued with a trios match from “Eclipse” on October 11th, 2014, when Blind Rage, Icarus, and Hallowicked united and battled Dan Champion, Gran Akuma, and Oleg the Usurper. Our Snow Day presentation ended with King Ricochet facing our own “Friendly Neighborhood Psychopath” Smiley in the main event of “Tiramisu”. All our Snow Day videos are still available on our YouTube page!
As previously announced, Excellence will be a part of the 4th annual National Pro Wrestling Day (NPWD) at the Goodwill Beneficial Association in Reading, PA! We missed all of you last month and hope you’ll join us this Saturday at 2 pm for the yearly celebration of pro-wrestling! For more information on this year’s event, visit the website.
NPWD is free to the public, but donations will be accepted for this year’s charity, The Polaris Project. Recognized as a “Four Star Charity” by Charity Navigator, The Polaris Project helps fight human trafficking, which is a world-wide and domestic epidemic. According to their website, trafficking victims are at the center of their work. They strive to help survivors regain their freedom, prevent more victims, and pursue and stop traffickers wherever they operate. You can donate in person at NPWD or online through this link. Please help us meet our goal of $2,400! We can do it!
I am very proud that EPW will be a part of this event. We believe in the positive power of pro-wrestling and the difference we can make together! Thank you to CHIKARA’s Director of Fun Mike Quackenbush and all our friends at CHIKARA Pro for including us!
At NPWD, Team Akuma’s Ca$hflow Ken Broadway will be representing us in CHIKARA’s Young Lions Cup XII tournament! He will join 12 other hungry young wrestlers competing for the shiny golden cup. Plus, we will present a tag team match. The unlikely duo of destructive newcomer Havoc and our fearless stuntman extraordinaire Danger Jameson will team up to take on undefeated One Night Only!
Looking ahead, we will be back home at the Forrest Lodge in March. On March 12th, we will present “Kittens Mittens”. Hopefully we’re not jinxing ourselves with more snow with the mitten mention! I am a black cat after all. The very first match has been announced and it’s a rematch from “20% Gratuity”! Those lovable and devilish demons, The Batiri (Obariyon & Kodama), will return to EPW to take on One Night Only with the goal of ending their streak!
Don’t forget to friend me on Facebook. I promise not to bite or scratch…well, not too much! Also, add our site to your bookmarks for more updates and missives from me, Edgar Excellence, the Head Cat of Excellence!
If you love EPW, we have a Facebook page and Twitter, so be sure to like and follow us. We also have a YouTube Channel featuring footage from “20% Gratuity”, “Excellence Live”, 5 Minute Matches, and videos featuring the stars of Excellence Pro.
See you this Saturday in Reading for National Pro Wrestling Day!

From the Office of Edgar Excellence: 01.18.2016
Happy New Year to all you cats and kittens out there from your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence!
As I write to you, or rather dictate this message (typing is hard with paws), it’s snowing. Normally the chilly weather makes me want to curl up and take a nap, but I’m so excited for our next show that I can’t sleep!
In 2015, the EPW roster was hungry for competition. Every show reflected that, starting with “Reservations for Two” in January right through to “20% Gratuity” in November. Together with our special guests, like Tessa Blanchard, Ricochet, BLK Jeez, and The Batiri, the entire EPW crew’s hard work and dedication made our year a delicious and purrfect success.
Everyone in our office stretched out their creative muscles as well. We held a special event called “Excellence Live” in August, which is only available to watch on our YouTube page and was never released on DVD. “Excellence Live” featured the “Excellence Accelerator Round Robin”. We also introduced our “Turkey Tumbler Elimination Match” at “20% Gratuity,” which featured 12 wrestlers competing for more Excellence Championship Series (ECS) wins.
The Excellence roster has been competing for wins in the ECS and the first eight men to get ten will enter the tournament to become the first Excellence Champion! Our big silver belt was designed by Darren Championship Gold and formally unveiled at our last show, “20% Gratuity”, where it was heavily guarded by security.
At our last show, Hallowicked defeated Icarus to become the first wrestler to qualify for the tournament in the main event. After the match, Blind Rage, frustrated by his recent losing streak, attacked Icarus. The attack led to a huge brawl that emptied the locker room. As the fighting spread around the Forrest Lodge, Wicked celebrated his win over the chaos, confident he will be our first champion.
The current ECS standings are as follows: Smiley and The Boar of Moldova have nine wins, then Dan Champion and Gran Akuma are neck and neck with eight wins, followed by Icarus and Oleg the Usurper with seven, and Ken Broadway and Rage with five wins each.
We ended 2015 on a high note with our highest attendance ever, as over 200 EPW fans were in attendance at “20% Gratuity”! We hope to see all of you this Saturday at “Let The Cat Out Of The Bag”. Excellence fans, we’ll be back at our home at the Forrest Lodge VFW in Sellersville, PA, and I’ve signed seven huge matches!
In women’s action, the debuting Karen Q. will be taking on Vanity!
In two singles contests, The Boar of Moldova will fight Kobald and Hallowicked will wrestle Argus!
“Ca$hflow” Ken Broadway and the Ecuadorian Aristocrat Juan Francisco de Coronado will wrestle EPW’s favorite chef’s Too Many Cooks (Sloppy Joe and Assistant Chef Blackmon) in a tag team match!
In a “Four Man Elimination Match” for ECS wins, Danger Jameson, Qefka The Quiet, Havoc, and Rembrandt Lewis will collide.
The rivalry between Champion and Akuma continues on. After meeting in the “Turkey Tumbler” last November, they will wrestle one-on-one!
The war between Nick the Silent Assassin, his manager Ariela Nyx, and undefeated One Night Only (Marq Quen and his friend Anthony Gangone) rages on! Originally, Nick and his partner, Matt Sells, were scheduled to take on ONO, but Matt will be with Ring of Honor and Nick will need to choose a new teammate. In this war Nick has decided to team up with Arielya Nyx’s first client, “The Psycho Superman” Smiley! What will will Smiley bring to the table against Excellence Pro’s Dynamic Duo?
Also, “The Winged Ring Warrior” Icarus, and Blind Rage will be in the building! There’s some bad blood that’s been brewing since November! The question is not will these two elements explode when in the same building, but how large the path of destruction will be around them!
On February 6th, Excellence will be a part of the 4th Annual National Pro Wrestling Day (NPWD) at the Goodwill Beneficial Association in Reading, PA! Team Akuma’s Ken Broadway will be in the Young Lions Cup XII tournament. Plus, we will present a match. Havoc and Danger Jameson will team up to take on One Night Only! I am very proud we will be a part of this event, as everyone at EPW also believes that pro wrestling can change the world! NPWD is free to the public, but donations will be accepted for this year’s charity, The Polaris Project, which helps fight human trafficking.

The Calm Before: 20% Gratuity
As I write this, we are 24 hours removed from the time in which some of the most excellence fans in the world would embark on their journey to the Forrest Lodge in Sellersville. Some might be enjoying a meal before making their trek to the Home of Excellence. As for me, 24 hours from now I will be on the edge of my seat awaiting the closing remarks that the men and women of Excellence Professional Wrestling will make with their competitive voices to close out the 2015 Campaign.
It’s all about the Excellence Championship and it all starts with the Turkey Tumbler. As a nod to our first November event’s clever name, Edgar Excellence has created the most inventive way to allow Excellence’s stars to rise from the basement to the terrace in regards to the Excellence Championship Series standings. As of this writing, there are 12 superstars announced for this match. That means that someone like Rembrandt Lewis (who has been held winless in singles competition) could max out at wins should he win the Tumbler. But he would have to defeat each competitor in his path! The way the Turkey Tumbler works is that each win that is picked up in the gauntlet style match will count towards their final totals. You will definitely want to settle in because the Excellence Professional Wrestling scene could (and probably will) change by the end of the night.
On top of the Turkey Tumbler, we still have 5 great matches on the card, including two that could main event anywhere that wrestling is on the marquee.
On one side of the coin, the unconquered tandem of One Night Only looks to put perfection on the line once more as they take on a most demonic duo in the form of Kodama and Obariyon, The Batiri! While The Batiri will be making their Excellence Pro debut and will be stepping up to the plate against what some may say is the hottest thing going in Sellersville, they have every intent to cause chaos and play spoiler to One Night Only’s storybook reign of supremacy in tag team action. Will the self-proclaimed King of Strikes, Anthony Gangone, be able to attack his way out of The Seventh Circle? Will Marq Quen connect with enough CQC (Close Quen Combat) to avoid a good Skull Bronzing?
The opposite, two of Excellence Pro’s most decorated athletes go toe to toe as our very own “Winged Ring Warrior” Icarus attempts to play spoiler of the championship aspirations of “The Nightmare Warrior” Hallowicked. ‘Wicked does have 9 victories, making him one short of locking in his place in the Excellence Championship Series. Icarus is not far behind with 7 victories. Can Icarus soar to new heights and triumph over a familiar face or will Hallowicked add Icarus’ name to the list of the vanquished who he laid to rot?
Please don’t forget the returns of Damian Adams and Kobald, the debuts of Qefka the Quiet and Matty Ice, Too Many Cooks will be serving up the good eats and Vanity looks to settle a score with “Lady Excellence” Deonna Purrazzo!
20% Gratuity is sure to answer a ton of questions that 2015 wrote. Will our final chapter of this year write more questions? I know I’ll be there. Will you?

From the Office of Edgar Excellence:11.26.2015
Meow and greetings to all you cats and kittens, the Excellence fans! I am your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence!
The Excellence Office is closed today in honor of Thanksgiving. Last night, I celebrated my own personal tradition of watching a marathon of old Survivor Series pay-per-views, which I’ve been doing since I was a kitten. Then on Thanksgiving itself, I will spend today eating as much turkey as I can steal off the table, napping, and giving thanks! And I do truly have much to purr about!
First and most importantly, I’m thankful for all our excellent fans. Because of your support, Excellence has grown far beyond my litter box and wildest dreams to bring you the best wrestling and wrestlers in the world each month. At “20% Gratuity” we had our biggest crowd ever! Over 200 of you packed the Forrest Lodge to see us! Thank you for coming every month, bringing your friends and family, watching our shows, and spreading the word about Excellence.
Also from feline to human, I am very thankful for and proud of the Excellence roster and crew. Thank you everyone for your hard work, dedication, and devotion to Excellence, our fans, and being the best you can be!
I mentioned these fine folks on my Facebook, but they deserve to be acknowledged and thanked again because they also help make Excellence happen!
– Forrest Lodge VFW for giving us a great venue and home!
– Darren Championship Gold for creating the work of art that is our Championship!
– Amerikick Lansdale for the awesome intermission demos and your support!

Like I mentioned, “20% Gratuity” was a huge success! One Night Only and The Batiri proved they are two of the best tag teams in professional wrestling. Their match became an instant contender for Excellence’s “Match of the Year”. If you couldn’t be in Sellersville, be sure to watch the match on video. The Turkey Tumbler Gauntlet was a wild affair full of surprises and unexpected twists. At the end of Icarus and Hallowicked’s match, there was a shocking betrayal and the night ended with a brawl all over the Forrest Lodge that emptied the locker room!
Based on the aftermath of “20% Gratuity”, I signed two matches for our first show of 2016! On January 23rd, Ariela Nyx will lead Nick the Silent Assassin and Matt Sells against ONO! This will be their first time teaming together, but they are motivated for revenge after a sneak attack by Gangone and Quen at “20% Gratuity”!
The Prince of Goblins, Kobald was victorious in his return against Qefka the Quiet, but will have a huge challenge when he meets The Boar of Moldova. These two battled during the brawl at “20% Gratuity”. In January, they will fight to see who has the best spear. Will Kobald be able to flush the Boar or will Boar gore him back out of action? And speaking of Boar, Oleg the Usurper is still missing in action since his war with Boar at “Check Please!”
The Excellence Pro Championship was unveiled at “20% Gratuity”. If you haven’t seen it, here’s a picture. The wrestler who wins the Excellence Championship Series will get to hold it.
Speaking of the Series, Hallowicked is the first entrant after earning his 10th win against Icarus! After “20% Gratuity”, here are the standings: The Boar and Smiley have 9 wins; Dan Champion and Gran Akuma have 8; Oleg and Icarus have 7 wins each; Blind Rage and Ken Broadway have 5 wins; Argus and Sasha Jenkins have 2 wins; and Havoc has 1 win.

From the Office of Edgar Excellence: 10.31.2015
Meow and greetings to all you cats and kittens, the Excellence fans! I am your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence!
October has been a busy month here at the Excellence offices! I’ve barely had enough time to get my usual four hour afternoon nap! But despite the craziness, fall is my favorite season. There are piles of leaves to attack and mice to catch. Plus, I get to celebrate my two favorite holidays – National Cat Day and Halloween! This month, along with being petted and appreciated, I’ve been planning lots of surprises for all Excellence fans and roster for the last show of the year, 20% Gratuity!
We’ve had some of the best wrestlers in the world debut in Excellence this year, like Ricochet and Tessa Blanchard did at Tiramisu. And 20% Gratuity will be no exception!
I love treats (especially fishy flavored ones)! So, I have a special treat for all the fans. Next month, The Batiri (Obariyon/Kodama) will make their debut! Everyone’s favorite demonic duo will take on the undefeated One Night Only (Marq Quen/Anthony Gangone). Plus, I’m sure there will be many tricks when that crafty mime, Qefka the Quiet, makes his first Excellence appearance. Mimes scare me and make me want to hissssss…
Former friends and partners meet once again as the Nightmare Warrior Hallowicked fights Icarus. Wicked is not just any pumpkin, he’s a great, no, Excellent one. And a victory in this match will give him the 10 wins he needs to enter the Excellence Championship Tournament! He could be the first wrestler to enter, but not if Icarus has anything to say or do about it!
At 20% Gratuity, I’m introducing a new match – the Turkey Tumbler Gauntlet Match! (Yummm…Turkey!) Wins towards the Excellence Championship Tournament are at stake in this important contest!
All your favorite Excellence wrestlers, like Lady Excellence Deonna Purrazzo, Smiley, and Gran Akuma will be there! I hope you join us for some fall fun! See you on November 14th at our favorite haunt, the Forest Lodge in Sellersville! And when you come, don’t forget to try Too Many Cooks (Assistant Chef Smoothe Blackmon/Sloppy Joe) specials!
After Check Please, I revealed the completed Excellence Pro Championship. It’s stunning really, as the artistry is superb, and as a feline, I know style. It’s a belt that when held up says “I’m Excellence.” In case you missed it, here’s another look.
The tournament to determine the first Excellence Champion still rages on and anyone can win it! The top contenders are: Hallowicked with 9 wins; Oleg the Usurper, Smiley, Icarus, The Boar of Moldova and Dan Champion have 7 wins each; Akuma has 6 wins; and Blind Rage and Ken Broadway have 5 wins.
At Tiramisu, Oleg and the Boar fought to a double count out. Both bruisers approached me afterwards and demanded a rematch, which I granted at Check Please! Boar attacked Oleg with three Gores. He was helped to the back and our medical staff attended to him, but I have not heard hide nor hair nor fur from him since!

Love Excellence and need more in your life? We have a Facebook Page and Twitter, so be sure to like and follow us. We also have a YouTube Channel featuring footage from Excellence Live, 5 Minute Matches, and other videos for you to watch.
Thanks to our friends at Smart Mark Video, you can watch the latest Excellence releases anytime of the day or night, if you’re a night owl or just a cat like me!
Don’t forget to friend me, Edgar Excellence, on Facebook. I promise I won’t bring you bad luck, that’s just a superstition! Also, keep an eye on our website for more missives from me, the Head Cat of Excellence.
Until next time…Meow!

The Calm Before: Check Please
We are a little more than 24 hours away from bell time at the Forrest Lodge in Sellersville. As Phil Collins sang, I can feel it in the air tonight. Something big is going to happen. You should be there to see it.
There’s going to be a battle for… dominance. Excellence’s Unstoppable Force and Excellence’s Immovable Object as the Boar takes on Oleg The Usurper one more time. This will be a proverbial game of chicken except neither man will flinch. Last time these two squared off, it took the bulwark of Oleg The Usurper… the golden chest plate to stop the War Pig’s onslaught. At Check Please, both men will be bringing the heavy artillery and this very well could be the end of this war of attrition!
There’s going to be a battle for… supremacy for Hallowicked. In his four way elimination match, Sleepy Hollow’s favored son looks to become the first person to gain the 10 wins required to participate in the Excellence Championship Series. Only issue is that Hallowicked will need to find a way to defeat two of these men: Blind Rage, Smiley and Havoc! He’s already gotten the best of Smiley and Blind Rage once before in the House of Excellence, as well as being successful in the first four way eliminator in Excellence history! Can Havoc be the x-factor that he knows he can be and play spoiler to Hallowicked’s path to the number one spot? Will Smiley soar to new heights and claim the winner’s share? Will Blind Rage outlast and outwit the competition and walk out with the victory? Or will Hallowicked continue on the path he’s set before him and claim his rightful spot atop the Excellence Championship Series leaderboard?
There’s going to be a battle for… acceptance for Dan Champion. After losing his place in the triad known as Team Champion, Dan has fallen out of favor with his Champion In Training, Ken Broadway and the new leader of the team, Gran Akuma. While Akuma will have his hands full once more with Rembrandt Lewis, Ken Broadway will do something he never dreamed that he would need to, face Dan Champion. A win here for Ken Broadway will solidify Team Akuma, proving that Dan Champion was indeed the weak link and that the training for Ken Broadway’s championship aspirations are complete. However, for Dan Champion, a win here will prove that there’s definitely room in Team Akuma for a Champion. Can Broadway be able to shut out his personal feelings for his first mentor and pick up the W or will Dan live up to his name and earn his way back into the good graces of Team Akuma.
There’s going to be a battle for… retribution for Nick and Ariela Nyx. Last month, Ariela Nyx was the target of the most heinous action in Excellence Professional Wrestling history when Anthony Gangone connected with a Roaring Elbow out of nowhere to the unsuspecting manager of Nick The Silent Assassin. Anthony Gangone feels that he has been wronged by the Excellence Competition Committee for not allowing him to compete on his ankle last month, comparing his ankle injury to Nick’s disability! Nick, while silent by circumstance, looks to speak with his actions at Check Please. Can Nick’s heart and determination topple the beastly tandem of One Night Only? Will One Night Only overlook the competitive spirit of Ariela Nyx?
There’s going to be a battle for… self-respect for Danger Jameson. The self-sentenced Trial Series for Danger Jameson continues at Check Please as Excellence’s glorified stuntman takes on the cult classic, Cheeseburger! As loved as Danger Jameson is in Sellersville, Cheeseburger is in the landscape of wrestling! Will Good Ole’ Dange be able to score the victory over his inner demons about “the incident” that set his career in stunting spiraling downhill?
All this and more at Sellersville! The New York Cheffin’ Crew, Too Many Cooks are back in town serving up some more Sloppy Joe knuckle sandwiches to the Lucha Raptor and Argus! We’ve got “Lady Excellence” Deonna Purrazzo returning taking on the debuting Vanity, and Will and I will be calling all the action live for Smart Mark Video!
You know I’ll be there. Will you?

Meow and greetings to all you cats and kittens, the Excellence fans! I am your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence!
Amongst all the heated rivalries, special guests, and excellent wrestling, wrestlers on the Excellence roster are winning their way into the Excellence Championship Tournament! With every match, each wrestler has been scratching and clawing his way to becoming the first Excellence Pro Champion! In order to get into the tournament, wrestlers must accumulate 10 wins by beating their opponents in singles, three way, and accelerator matches like we had at Excellence Live!
The top tournament contenders are: Hallowicked has 8 wins; Oleg the Usurper, Smiley, and Icarus have 7 wins; The Proletariat Boar of Moldova and Dan Champion have 6 wins; and Blind Rage, Ken Broadway, and Gran Akuma have 5 wins each.
While every competitor still has a chance to qualify and win the championship, word around the office milk bowl is the current favorite is Hallowicked – and understandably so. Since the start of this year, he has been reborn into a true nightmare warrior. Opponents are intimidated by his new demonic look and heavy leather armor, while his straightforward, brutal offense strikes fear into their hearts. Driven by a desire for power and glory, he believes winning the tournament and adding to his list of accolades is paramount to doing just that! But any of the eight men behind him are worthy champions in their own right; can Hallowicked win the tournament and secure his place in Excellence history? Keep watching to find out!
On October 10th at Check Please!, One Night Only, the dynamic (and undefeated) duo of Marq Quen and his friend Anthony Gangone, will be back together in action against Nick the Silent Assassin and his manager Ariela Nyx! I’ve been watching the war of words between Gangone and Nick and saw what Gangone did during Nick and Quen’s match at Tiramisu. As a result, I quickly pounced and signed this tag team match so they could settle their differences in the ring in front of the Excellence fans!
If you haven’t tasted Tiramisu and watched the sweet debuts of Ricochet, Tessa Blanchard, Bee Boy, Mantis, and The Lucha Raptor, the event is available now thanks to our partners at Smart Mark Video. Watch it either as a video on demand or mp4 here!
Need more Excellence? We have a Facebook Page and Twitter, so be sure to like and follow us. We also have a YouTube Channel featuring footage from Excellence Live, 5 Minute Matches, and videos of all your favorite Excellence wrestlers (and Juan Francisco de Coronado) for you to watch.

From the Office of Edgar Excellence: 09.22.2015
Meow and greetings to all you cats and kittens, the Excellence fans! I am your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence.
I’ve been enjoying the late summer weather, as it’s still warm in my favorite spot on the deck where I curl up to nap and dream…
When I was a young tomcat, my feline friends would talk about our goals and dreams. For some of them, it was capturing affections of the sweetest kitten on the block, while for others it was becoming a champion mouse-catcher, but me, I dreamt of professional wrestling. I wanted to own and run my own promotion one day, and not just any promotion, but one that would feature the best wrestling and wrestlers on the planet.
Last Saturday’s Tiramisu was the fulfillment of a dream for this cat. The main event featuring “The Future of Flight” Ricochet against our own “Friendly Neighborhood Psychopath” Smiley exceeded my greatest expectations and was one of the best matches in Excellence history!
Their match just capped off a great night of action, which featured an encounter between two of the best female athletes in the world when Tessa Blanchard wrestled “Lady Excellence” Deonna Purrazzo! Tiramisu also saw Icarus take on Team Akuma’s Ken Broadway, the beginning of Danger Jameson’s trial series, Marq Quen in a rare singles match, and a war between Oleg the Usurper and The Proletariat Boar of Moldova, plus impressive debuts from Bee Boy, Mantis, and The Lucha Raptor!
Our partners at Smart Mark Video released Tiramisu quickly, so you can watch and enjoy all the action now! Check out the event as a video on demand or mp4 using the links at our Watch EPW link!
Tiramisu would not have happened without lots of catnip, bowls of milk, and the help of many people who I am indebted to…firstly, thank you to all our loyal fans that have supported Excellence since The Inaugural Brawl and those new fans that just joined us at Tiramisu! Thank you to the wrestlers whose commitment to Excellence and the fans make each show special! Thank you to the staff and crew for all their hard work in making our shows happen in the first place!
This cat’s dream is to continue putting on shows just like Tiramisu for our fans! Keep your eyes our Facebook Page and Twitter (@ExcellencePW) for more matches and details on our October 10th show “Check Please!”
Until next time…Meow!

Nick Speaks: 09.11.2015
“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim.”– Tim Field
The Proletariat Boar of Moldova. During his short career thus far, this dangerous individual has made quite an impact on the Northeast Independent Professional Wrestling scene. Whether it be Chikara or Excellence Pro, The Boar has ‘speared’ his way into becoming someone that everyone has their eyes on. Whether it be a Smiling Psychopath, a Nomadic Viking Warrior, or an Silent Assassin, Boar has dominated his way through all of them! However, he didn’t only accomplish this by battling. He also accomplished this by bullying!
Throughout this past summer, The Boar and Oleg the Usurper have developed a rivalry. These two giants have been trying to get at each other for months now. Nonetheless, there has been one problem. The Boar has never been alone against Oleg! On August 10th, it looked as if Boar and Oleg were finally going to lock horns and fight. That was, until the returning Juan Francisco De Coronado made the save for Boar. Later that night, these two allies faced Oleg in an handicapped match.
Now, Oleg and I have never seen eye to eye. Last September, Oleg almost beheaded me right in the center of the ring. But see, I don’t like bullies. He took me out, he took my friend Smiley out, and he even took my manager Ariela Nyx out. I couldn’t watch the Boar take advantage of another victim. This is why I made the save last month. And win or lose, I will continue to make the save against people who think they’re ‘higher’ than others.
All my life, I had to struggle. No more! I may have my handicaps, but I can still go with the best of them. It can be The Boar, Ken Broadway, Dan Champion, whoever! My goal in Excellence Pro is to show everyone that you can be whoever you want to be. Don’t let roadblocks stop you and certainly don’t let bullies stop you!

From the Office of Edgar Excellence: 09.07.2015
Meow and greetings to all you cats and kittens, the Excellence fans! I am your Administrator of Excellence, Edgar Excellence.
While Excellence might be my last name, it’s not why I call my wrestling company Excellence Pro. No! It’s because excellence is our way of life and what everyone here, from the wrestlers to the crew, strive to live up to. We are committed to bringing our fans the best professional wrestling on the planet and prove it with every show. Just take a look at the matches I’ve booked for Tiramisu this Saturday!
When I was a kitten, I used to sit in front of the television and watch wrestling. I was a huge fan of The Four Horsemen. Imagine my excitement when I discovered Tully’s daughter Tessa Blanchard followed in her father’s footsteps! I knew instantly I wanted to bring her to Excellence to wrestle our own “Lady Excellence” Deonna Purrazzo!
The leader of “Team Akuma,” Gran Akuma, wants to send “Cashflow” Ken Broadway into battle against a former friend and foe in Icarus! I think the always confident Icarus should take this challenge seriously, because I’m sure Akuma will teach Broadway everything he knows about the Winged Ring Warrior!
Akuma himself will be in action in a triple threat against the returning Ecuadorian Aristocrat, Juan Francisco de Coronado, and Rembrandt Lewis! The way I see it, each man has something to prove in this match. Akuma wants to continue dominating the competition, JFDC wants to reestablish his winning ways, and Lewis wants to show he can hang with the best!
Too Many Cooks (Sloppy Joe & Assistant Chef Smoothe Blackmon) are always hungry and begging me for more competition! Saturday, they’ll team with Lunch Lady Mabel to serve a trio from the wild as the Master of Gecko-Roman Wrestling, Argus, teams up with two stinging insects from the Outback, Mantis and Bee Boy!
Ever since he and Nick the Silent Assassin lost to The Proletariat Boar of Moldova and JFDC last month at Excellence Live, Oleg the Usurper has wanted vengeance. The Viking Warrior wants to settle the score and asked me for one-on-one match with the Boar! I granted his request and signed what could be the hardest hitting match in Excellence history!
Our “Stuntman Extraordinaire” Danger Jameson is always asking me for chances to wow the Excellence fans and show off his latest stunts! This month, he will get his opportunity when he takes on Hallowicked! Since coming under influence of scary Nazmaldun, Wicked has truly become a “Nightmare Warrior”. Surviving this match might provide to be Danger’s most death-defying act yet!
And in our thrilling main event, “The King of Flight” Ricochet will debut! I’m excited and proud to have such an international superstar enter our ring! When choosing his opponent, I immediately thought of one man, our “Friendly Neighborhood Psychopath” Smiley! This is going to be an epic match between two of the best high flyers in the world! I expect to see moves we’ve never seen before!
And that’s not all! We will have the undefeated One Night Only (Anthony Gangone & Marq Quen), Nick the Silent Assassin with Ariela Nyx, and more Excellence stars in the house! Plus, AmeriKick Lansdale will join us again during Intermission for a demonstration!
Tiramisu is going to be our biggest show yet! I hope to see you all there on Saturday! The action will be live at the Forrest Lodge in Sellersville, PA, starting at 7 pm!
And just one more bit of business before I curl up in the sun for my nap…
Juan Francisco, I’ve heard the disparaging comments you’ve made about my ability to run Excellence. I am “el Jefe Gato,” the head cat, the boss here at Excellence. You would do best to remember that I do have claws and I’m not afraid to use them.
Meow!
Edgar

Reflections: Excellence Live

As I sit back at Excellence HQ next to the office of Edgar Excellence (if you can call a litter box that), I reflect on all the great action that transpired at Excellence LIVE in the Forrest Lodge. Friends, let me tell you. I’m exhausted.
But as a man who does yoga once said, that’s not a bad thing. That’s a good thing. Before I start waxing eloquently on what transpired at Excellence Live, I have to thank the most excellent fans in the world for making Saturday such a great night. As 1/2 of your hosts for the evening, you were a wonderful crowd! It is my hope that we were worth your time and you left knowing that Excellence is just as much about you as it is about the men and women who compete for you inside that squared circle. Without you, there would be no us.
Now that the mushy-gushy is out of the way, who would have expected to see Juan Francisco De Coronado back in an Excellence ring?! The last time we saw him, he was in utter shock from a sub-minute loss to Icarus! If what we saw from Ecuador’s Finest Export is any indication on what is to come, people will need to take notice as Juan looks to be in rare form!
The benefactor from Juan’s return is a man(imal) who celebrated his boar-thday on Saturday, The Boar of Moldova! Leading into Saturday, we knew that he still had a score to settle with Excellence’s resident conqueror, Oleg The Usurper! Birthday wishes do come true as the Boar pulled a fast one over Oleg thanks to a trusty flagpole. It will be very interesting come September 12th how Oleg will look to return the favor.
Excellence Live saw the debut of the Excellence Accelerator as 6 men were given the opportunity to double down on their win totals going into the Excellence Championship Series. The big winner of the night is the Champion In Training, “Cashflow” Ken Broadway as he swept both of his opponents in Sellersville. Broadway has really turned it on as of late since following the leadership of Gran Akuma. While Akuma was on vacation during Excellence Live, I am told that Gran Akuma did have eyes and ears on the events of the evening and was proud to hear that Broadway did Team Akuma proud!
Speaking of Team Akuma, Dan Champion is still a champion without a team. Splitting his victories in the Excellence Accelerator, Champion is still vying to earn the respect of Gran Akuma and reclaim a spot in the trio! I wonder what Gran Akuma thinks of Dan’s showing at Excellence Live and if Akuma will greet Dan with open arms come Tiramisu!
All in all, the fans in Sellersville were treated to a great night of action that you could only witness LIVE! What were your takeaways? Reach out to me via Twitter and share your thoughts on #ExcellenceLIVE!
Now I just can’t wait till Excellence serves dessert with #Tiramisu! The debuts of Tessa Blanchard and Ricochet?! Yes please!
Until next time…
