Bodyslam Magazine: Super Max Challenge Cup Preview part 2on January 12, 2011 at 10:48 pm
In the second installment of our look at Prison Pro Wrestling’s Super Max Challenge Cup we’ll be taking a look at the team assembled to represent Prison Asteroid 56Q. And by “team” we of course mean “the guys who aren’t El Gangster II but have to be there because the rules stipulate there be four guys on the team.”
6′ 1″, 240 lbs
While it could be argued that Wildman Harris brings a wealth of experience to the Super Max Challenge, members of our PPW reporting staff were quick to point out that most of his experience involves being beaten by better wrestlers. Prison Asteroid 56Q has never been known as a prime talent producer within the PPW system, and Harris is a shining example of that. He’s going to have a tough time in the singles round, but will prove to be an adequate tag team partner for one of his more talented compatriots.
“Pretty Boy” Paul Meyers
6′ 2″, 217 lbs
Paul Meyers, the self-proclaimed “Pretty Boy,” has stepped up his game significantly in the last few months, much to the relief of Prison 56Q’s Warden, who gained the ability field three-quarters of a very solid Super Max team. Meyers hasn’t lost in nearly five months and provides 56Q with a skilled technician who can push the pace to wear out an opponent, which will be especially useful later in the tournament.
6′ 8″, 598 lbs
Despite his… let’s say unflattering… ring name, a match-up with Dr. Fat most likely means a world of hurt for some poor chump. Fat’s style isn’t complicated, and it’s not pretty, but it got him the second most points in the qualifying round of any Prison Asteroid 56Q grapplers. While that total paled in comparison to the mark set by El Gangster II, Dr. Fat is very likely the strongest man in this year’s Super Max Challenge and a valuable asset to his team.
El Gangster II
5′ 11″, 207 lbs
The fact that El Gangster II is even related to the original El Gangster is enough to make him the best guy on this team. The fact that he was trained by his older brother makes him one of the top three guys in the entire tournament. Unfortunately for EG II, he’s going to be relied upon heavily to put up points if 56Q is going to upset it’s competition. Despite being a near-guaranteed two points in the singles round, he’s going to be hard-pressed to go through entire tag teams by himself.
One thing worth pointing out about Team 56Q that doesn’t fit into the wrestler-by-wrestler model that our editor foisted upon us (I’ll foist you with a brick, Writey McFiredNow – Ed.) is that none of the team members are regular tag team competitors. With every round beyond the first being contested in tag team matches, this could prove to be a serious disadvantage, especially if a match-up with Los Gordinflones Negros arises.
