8 Man Tag Team Match
The Vile Society (585 Live Champion "The Vile Jedi" Jeremy Jensen & UPW Heavyweight Champion "The Young Lion of the West" Mattick w/Kount C) & UPW Tag Team Champions The Wrestling Liberation Front (w/Bin Hamin) vs. "Your Captain" Nick Ando, Gregory Iron, & Defiance (Chris Cayden & Maximo Suave)
Due to the actions of The Wrestling Liberation Front helping Mattick win the UPW Heavyweight Title at UPW's last show, March Meltdown, Commissioner Casey Doyle has made this star-studded main event for Spring Loaded. Given the history between all 8 of these UPW stars, all bets are off here in what promises to be an all-out war.
UPW Canadian No Limits Title Match
"God's Favorite Son" Jason Savior vs. "The King of the North" Carter Mason
UPW "Canadian" No Limits Champion Carter Mason has knocked off all comers since becoming the champion. But Jason Savior is no stranger to winning gold himself as a former KDW Champion. Will the "King" continue his reign or will "God's Favorite Son" knock him off his throne?
"The Amazing Canadian" Lionel Knight vs. "Hybrid" Sean Carr
Two of the top stars in the indy's today do battle in this one. Knight is one of Canada's top stars looking for a signature win. Carr has made some headway since coming to UPW a couple months back, but is also looking to make statement here as well. Who will climb up the UPW ranks with a victory here?
Cheech vs. "The Ace of Professional Wrestling" Icon Ace
Rematch from UPW's Valentine's Day Massacre where that match ended in a double-countout. Neither man was satisfied with the outcome, so Commissioner Doyle has made this match for Spring Loaded. Cheech is an established veteran who wants to show Ace he's still one of the best around in UPW. But Icon Ace feels that now is his time to shine and would love nothing more than to knock off the "New Wave" and establish himself as one of UPW's top stars.
UPW Tag Team Title #1 Contender's Match
The Faculty (Bam Bam & Sebastian Braun) vs. The Board of Directors (Pat White & Rico Figueroa) vs. The Nightbreed (Robby Vegas & Xavier Jones) vs. The Arsenal (Fireheart & Charlie Locke)
Huge four corners match here with potential title implications as well. The Nightbreed make their UPW debut and will look to make an immediate impact. The newly formed team of The Arsenal have never teamed before, but have immense heart and passion and that could put them over the top in this one. The odd pairing of the Faculty have the potential to do some serious damage, but one has to wonder if Sebastian Braun can get on the same page with Bam Bam and Professor Wessler. The Board of Directors have fared well for themselves since becoming a part of the UPW roster and will use their quickness and speed to outlast the other three team in hopes of getting the victory.
Nick "The Natural" Sullivan vs. Tommy Osbourne & Jordan Brown
Nick "The Natural" Sullivan has been on a tear since arriving on the scene in UPW. At UPW's March Meltdown, Sullivan took out Bobby Dipinto who called him out earlier in the show. Referees and wrestlers from the dressing room, including Jaxon Jarvis, Tommy Osbourne, and Jordan Brown, came out to Dipinto's aid. Sullivan went after the three of them as well, but was stopped by Commissioner Casey Doyle. In light of those actions, Doyle made this handicap match which was supposed to be a 3-on-1 handicap match. But Jarvis was taken out by Sullivan at the UPW training school a few weeks ago, now making it a 2-on-1 handicap match. One has to wonder if the young upstarts Osbourne and Brown have any idea what they're getting themselves into.
So be there this Saturday at Pineapple Jack's for Upstate Professional Wrestling's Spring Loaded, our last show before UPW's Anniversary Anarchy 15!
