After the great success of our first-ever all female superstar deathmatch tournament at DEATH BECOMES HER in July and the ensuing documentary FEMME FETALES: WOMEN OF THE DEATH MATCH by Chicago filmmaker Rick Gawel (currently streaming for free on YouTube), Owner of The Resistance Jacques Baron announced that - due to fan demand and response - The Resistance is now a 100% hardcore wrestling company. This means absolutely NO DQs, NO count-outs and NO b@llsh*t wrestling in EACH and EVERY MATCH for ALL events held under The Resistance banner. The fans (and even some critics) have shown nothing but respect and admiration for the female superstars who risked life and limb at DEATH BECOMES HER and want more of that passion that shone thru that night. More deathmatches (and possibly another tournament?) are coming soon, but getting back to the "nuts and bolts" basics that made all of us fall in love with pro wrestling is what "hardcore" is all about. Will there be weapons? Hell, yes. Will there be blood? More than likely. Will there be rough language, adult themes and honest to goodness violence? F*ck yes. Too many local companies thrive on the same talented workers doing the same spots with the same people over and over and over again and the fans deserve an alternative. The hardest working men and women in the business who get passed over everywhere else in the area make The Resistance their home. Heavyweight Champion "The Southern Savior" JOHN SKYLER, Women's Champion RONI NICOLE and tag Team Champions "The Iron Demon" SHANE MERCER and "The Hood Ninja" HYZAYA are among the most exciting, talented stars around and we're honored to bring them - and multiple others - to you each and every show.

     And speaking of shows, The Resistance returns with our long-awaited Chapter IV: SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT on Saturday night, December 1st at the SPARK Recreation Center at Summit Park District in Summit, IL. This is an all ages show, but HIGHLY recommended to those ages 13 and over. Already announced for the show are:
