Once a year, Vintage Wrestling provides 30 men one golden opportunity. The Florida Rumble is one man’s chance to eliminate 29 other competitors in order to win a challenger spot against the Vintage Heavyweight Champion on Vintage’s biggest event of the year: WrestleBrawl. Every member of the Vintage Roster’s goal is to headline the huge January event and move on to potentially win the richest prize in Florida, the Vintage Heavyweight Title. This year, competitors from all over the state will enter the Rumble, but only one will emerge the victor. Current Heavyweight Champion, “The King of Florida” Francisco Ciatso, will also have his hands full as he battles former friend turned bitter enemy and the newly crowned Vintage Internet-TV Champion, “The New Jersey Badd Boy” Eric Cooper! BOTH titles will be on the line in this monumental match up. Which man will exit with dual championships? What man will leave the Rumble with a golden ticket to WrestleBrawl 4? Join us LIVE from the Sanford Salvation Army as Vintage Wrestling presents: The Florida Rumble 2012 brought to you by Hammerheads Beer & Wine Lounge!
[TITLE VS. TITLE MATCH] Vintage Heavyweight Champion, "The King of Florida" Francisco Ciatso w/ "Big" Pete Cannon vs. Vintage Internet-TV Champion, "The New Jersey Badd Boy" Eric Cooper w/ "The Voice" Justin Michaels
The conclusion to SummerBash 2012 saw the separation of one of Florida Wrestling's most tight-knit stables, The Royal Empire. After a treacherous attack orchestrated by "The Voice" Justin Michaels, Eric Cooper, alongside BeastMode and Shooter Storm stood dominantly over the beaten constitutions of their former Royal Empire brethren; one of them being "King of Florida" Francisco Ciatso. A month later at Fall-Out Brawl, Eric Cooper, with the aid of Biff Slater, fellow member Justin Michaels' band of disgruntled All-Stars recently dubbed "The Elite", captured the Vintage Wrestling Internet-Television Title from longtime reigning Champion, Simon Sez. Now, "The New Jersey Badd Boy" looks to conquer the richest prize in Florida on his path to the stardom he so adamantly feels he was denied by toppling current Vintage Heavyweight Champion Francisco Ciatso and leaving the Florida Rumble as dual champion. Will Vintage Wrestling's resident Madman, under the guidance of "The Voice", successfully complete his rage fueled conquest of Vintage Wrestling? Or will "The Measuring Stick" prevail over his former friend turned foe?
[2 ON 1 HANDICAP MATCH] "The Emerald Emperor of Professional Wrestling" Simon Sez vs. Vintage Wrestling Tag Team Champions, BeastMode w/ "The Voice" Justin Michaels
After a collective 19 month reign as Vintage Wrestling Internet-Television Champion, Simon Sez was unceremoniously relieved of that title under unscrupulous circumstances when "The New Jersey Badd Boy", after assistance from fellow "Elite" member Biff Slater, was able to pin Sez and become the NEW Vintage Internet-TV Champion. Following BeastMode's successful Vintage Tag Team Title defense against Los Ben Dejos, Vintage Correspondent Tim Richardson informed the Mammoth title holders that Simon Sez had layed out a challenge for a Handicap Match at the Florida Rumble. Undeniably amused, the newly appointed shepherd of "The Elite", Justin Michaels, accepted on behalf of the Tag Team Champions. Many are of the opinion that Sez has bitten off more than he can chew by making such an extreme challenge in a frenzied state of fury. Has the "The Emerald Emperor" finally snapped causing him to challenge the near collective 700 pounders to what many fear will be an outright slaughter? Or will The Man in Green somehow overcome Vintage Wrestling's Tag Team Titans?
