Southern Honor Wrestling will bring its biggest and best match card yet to the Action Building at 261 Marietta Road in Canton on Friday.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the first match will begin at 8 p.m.

The match card will feature an appearance by IMPACT Wrestling star Suicide as he takes on the reigning Southern Honor Wrestling champion Corey Hollis. Other matches on the card include:

♦ Dani Jordyn versus Brooklyn Creed;

♦ Kyle Matthews versus David Ali;

♦ The Revolt versus Lethal Poison;

♦ Jordan Kingsley versus Matt Lynch;

♦ Sean Legacy versus Gunner Miller;

♦ Owen Knight versus Ashton Starr versus AC Mack versus Cam Carter in a No. 1 contender fatal four way match;

♦ Joe Black versus Huckaby in a dog collar match.

“The dog collar match will see both men wearing dog collars with a chain attached to both collars,” promoter Gary Lamb said. “There will be no rules. This match will end the year-long feud between Black and Huckaby that has been one of, if not the biggest feud in Georgia in 2019.”

The rivalry was awarded “Feud of the Year” by the Georgia Wrestling History Awards Tuesday night. Southern Honor Wrestling was awarded several more awards including:

♦ Tag Team of the year: Lynch Mobb

♦ Technician of the year: Joe Black

♦ Most Improved Wrestler: David Ali

♦ Female wrestler of the Year: Dani Jordyn

♦ Wrestler of the Year: Logan Creed

♦ Event of the Year: SHW 1000

♦ Booker of the Year: Dylan Frymyer

♦ Promoter of the Year: Gary Lamb

♦ Promotion of the Year: Southern Honor Wrestling

“Last year was our first full year since starting in October of 2018,” Lamb said. “We’ve made a quick impact here in Georgia. We know what we are doing and it shows. We have a great building, strong connections and knowledge of the wrestling business that allows us to put on a top notch, high production driven show. Friday’s show will be our best card yet.”

Lamb’s passion for professional wrestling was reignited after going to a handful of local wrestling shows with his son.

“I was a fan of wrestling growing up,” Lamb said. “I used to watch it all the time as a kid, but grew out of it. I hadn’t watched any professional wrestling in probably 20 years until my seven year old son started watching wrestling about a year ago. I took him to a local promotion to watch some wrestling. I thought since my son is into wrestling, that I’d start my own wrestling promotion and do it the way I envisioned it.”

Lamb’s vision for what independent wrestling in Georgia could be has not only led to multiple honors and awards, but also a consistently packed house for every Southern Honor Wrestling show.

“Our first show we had around 278 people,” Lamb said. “Our biggest show we had about 1,024 people and we average around 500 to 600 people a show.”

Well known professional wrestlers and legends like Diamond Dallas Page, Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, Raven, Shannon Moore, Cody Rhodes, Scott Hall and Jake “The Snake” Roberts have all appeared at shows.

“It’s affordable family fun,” Lamb said.
