Tiffany Lucero was the referee for a main event match between talented Florida indie wrestler Lea Nox and up-and-comer Anna Diaz on March 25.
The combatants delivered a solid contest, working well with each other.
A wild ending to that match saw a different twist to a Hebner twin ref spot.
Remember twin refs Dave and Earl Hebner?
They pulled off one of the biggest surprises in pro wrestling history on WWF Main Event (Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant with Ted DiBiase and Virgil) in 1988 on NBC.
Fast forward (March 25, 2018), after Nox knocked Diaz into ref Tiffany Lucero from behind, Diaz turned the tables on Nox and covered her for the pin. Tiffany’s twin sister Nicolth — wearing much of the same referee attire — slid into the ring to make the count and award the match to Diaz.
Unbeknownst to the crowd, the twins were referees throughout the show.
An infuriated and battered Tiffany — who was hit twice by Diaz (thanks to Nox) — reversed the decision, calling for a DQ on Diaz. Tiffany did not know Nox caused the damage and blamed Diaz.
Tiffany argued about the decision with her twin, and then the siblings tussled with each other. Eventually, they brawled with Diaz and Nox, too, and the locker-room emptied.
The incident set up a tag match between Anna Diaz and Nicolth Lucero against (Nox’s friend) Dynamite Didi and Tiffany Lucero for the April 29th show.
Gangrel has trained wrestlers in California and Florida, including WWE Superstar Rusev.
GWA staff will be available if you want to join the next wrestling class.
- ROH in Lakeland and West Palm Beach
Ring of Honor returns to Florida in April.
After a pair of successful and newsworthy shows in Florida in November, Ring of Honor returns for two big shows in April, including its debut in West Palm Beach.
Ring of Honor will appear in West Palm Beach at the Palm Beach Convention Center on Friday, April 27, and in Lakeland again at the RP Funding Center on Saturday, April 28.
The last time ROH was in Florida, a memorable confrontation between The Briscoes and Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer culminated in ROH COO Joe Koff stepping into the ring and booking the brutal New York City Street Fight between the two teams that occurred at Final Battle in December. Also that November weekend in Florida, Bullet Club’s The Elite (The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega) successfully defended the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles.
ROH is coming off its most successful year ever, and that momentum has carried into 2018. There’s a new ROH world champ in Dalton Castle and new ROH world television champ in Silas Young. Also, new six-man tag champs in SoCal Uncensored (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky) and new tag champs in the Briscoe Brothers (Mark and Jay).
Will they still be wearing gold when ROH hits Florida in April? If so, will they leave Florida with their title belts?
Join ROH in West Palm Beach and Lakeland to find out.
