-IPWA issued the following release on their Facebook page announcing that former IPWA Champion Rabbi Swissa has challenged Joey Ryan to a Pure Rules match on Aug. 26 in Israel. Swissa has challenged Ryan to a match where he doesn’t bring his lollipop and wrestles a pure technical match. Swissa said in a statement, “That is why I would like to challenge Joey Ryan to a pure technical match at our next IPWA show in Israel on August 26th. I would also like to invite Joey to accept Judaism, move to Israel and repent for his sins. Joey’s little friend and his lollipop would be banned from entering Israel if he accepts the challenge. Joey will not need them anymore. I patiently await Joey’s reply to my challenge.”

IPWA’s next event will take place August 26 at the Berale Music Club in Lehavot Haviva, Israel. More information will be available soon.

As IPWA are getting ready to announce some of the talent for the show, former IPWA champion, Rabbi Swissa requested to use this opportunity to issue a challenge to one of the hottest free agents on the independent circuit – Joey Ryan.

The following is Swissa’s statement:
“I met Joey Ryan during Wrestlecon in New York and had great pleasure speaking with him. Everyone who has seen Joey wrestle knows that he has some unconventional moves in his arsenal. Many people in the industry criticize him and define him by those moves. But when I talked to Joey I saw a different Joey – I saw goodness in his eyes, I saw a man with a golden heart. There is much more to Joey Ryan than those moves.

That is why I would like to challenge Joey Ryan to a pure technical match at our next IPWA show in Israel on august 26th. I would also like to invite Joey to accept Judaism, move to Israel and repent for his sins. Joey’s little friend and his lollipop would be banned from entering Israel if he accepts the challenge. Joey will not need them anymore. I patiently await Joey’s reply to my challenge.”
