Brandon Parker vs. Joey Ryan
Brandon Parker has had a quiet couple of years since last performing for NWA Hollywood, the promotion that would break off from the NWA and become Championship Wrestling from Hollywood (CWFH). By that I mean I have been unable to find really anything about him since he had his last match for that promotion in April 2012. It is a shame too because this Jesse Hernandez trained youngster showed a lot of promise, in particular in his team with Todd Chandler as Young Hollywood.
Parker had a short yet wonderful match with Joey Ryan on an episode of NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood filmed December 4, 2011. One thing about Ryan that makes him such an asset to independent wrestling is while he has a high profile what with the longevity of his career and even being in TNA for a while, the dude is completely selfless. He is not afraid to look weak or give a lot in his matches and this is obvious in this encounter. Chandler accompanied Parker and Lucky O’Shea accompanied Ryan for this bout and got to watch as Parker gave Ryan a spin kick seconds into this match. Parker then hit a cross body from the top rope to the floor and a double stomp from the ring apron to the floor. After missing a second double stomp inside the ring Ryan targeted Parker’s leg and eventually got the win with a choke.
Parker should not be confused with a more heavily bearded wrestler with the same name who has a higher profile these days thanks in part to cutting hilarious promos.
