WEEKEND RESULTS, NEWS & NOTES
After being gone much of last week, I’m catching up on all your indy news! Unfortunately, this has been a really slow time in indy wrestling. Outside of PWG in California, most indies took the Labor Day weekend off.
The news out of PWG over the weekend is the return of Low Ki to action, and the Young Bucks won the PWG tag titles from Jimmy Jacobs & Tyler Black.
Brent Albright retained the National Wrestling Alliance title on Aug. 30 in Mexico City, defeating Adam Pearce. The card featured Mexican stars like Blue Demon, El Dandy, El Hijo del Santo, Fuerz Guerrera and more.
