FIP Headlines For 8.26.08!!!

Courtesy of Full Impact Pro:

Go Shiozaki Wins FIP Title

Go Shiozaki defeated FIP World Heavyweight Champion Erick Stevens on August 23rd in Crystal River, FL in a match of the year candidate to win the FIP World Heavyweight Title. The emotional bout saw both athletes struggle back and forth for over 25 minutes before Shiozaki scored the win. Some fans were shocked, many were angered as they started throwing garbage and storming out of the building at the outcome of this historic bout. Shiozaki, who is managed by Sean & Phil Davis of Heartbreak Enterprises in FIP and Larry Sweeney of Sweet & Sour Inc. in ROH, is now negotiating for his first title defense.

Shiozaki, touted as a future star for Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan, has now won his first major singles title. The news quickly spread to Japan where it received considerable coverage. No matter where Shiozaki goes in his career or what titles he wins, the FIP Championship will be his first major victory.

This was a heartbreaking loss for Stevens, who wanted nothing more in the world than to successfully defend the FIP World Heavyweight Title in front of his friends, family and longtime fans in his home state of Florida. This is the second time that Stevens won the FIP World Heavyweight Title, successfully defended it against two tough opponents on ROH events only to lose it in his first defense in Florida. Stevens is trying to regroup so he can go after the FIP World Heavyweight Title again.

"Once again Japan proves it is better than the United States," Sean Davis said. "Especially anything from Florida. There is no one happier than myself and my good friend Larry Sweeney. No one can defeat Go Shiozaki. He is the future of this business and he has the FIP belt to prove it."

Tag Title Match Signed For "Impact Of Honor 2"

FIP Tag Team Champions Kenny King & Jason Blade of The YRR have managed to defeat all challengers. However, they have avoided the men they defeated for the titles last November. Now they can't run anymore.

Just signed for 10/12 in Crystal River is the FIP return of Jay & Mark Briscoe as they challenge King & Blade. Many feel that King & Blade stole the FIP Tag Team Titles from The Briscoes. Now Jay and Mark can finally even the score.

"It has been too damn long since we been to Florida," Jay Briscoe said. "We ain't never forget that we lost them belts. Now we are coming to get them back. There is gonna be nothing pretty about this one. We are coming to Crystal River to kick some ass. Man up."
