The monumental, titanic, weekend-spanning J.T. Lightning Invitational Tournament that changed everything we knew about Absolute Intense Wrestling is now available to order on DVD at shop.aiwrestling.com, .mp4 at smartmarkvideo.com, and on demand at smvod.com!
Originally a tournament to determine the number one contender to Shiima Xion’s (TNA’s Zema Ion) Absolute Title, AIW Acting President Matthew Wadsworth decreed that the tournament would instead determine a NEW champion to replace the absent Xion. The #JLIT brought out the best in independent wrestling, from AIW stalwarts like Tim Donst, Eric Ryan, Rickey Shane Page and BJ Whitmer to Chikara regulars The Batiri, Archibald Peck, and Ophidian and did not stop there. Willie Mack made a rare Midwest appearance, ACH continued a phenomenal run that’s made him one of independent wrestling’s most talked about stars, and Brian Kendrick returned to his roots, wrestling as Spanky for the first time in several years and revitalizing his independent career in the process!
It was an absolutely massive weekend of professional wrestling, and now the entire six disc #JLIT can be yours for just $30. See Colt Cabana vs. BJ Whitmer, Tim Donst vs. Spanky, ACH vs. Willie Mack, Rickey Shane Page vs. Eric Ryan, and more, as 24 of the world’s best wrestler’s converge upon Cleveland’s legendary Turner’s Hall for the right to be champion.
