The Scouting Report
The newly minted Los Angeles Templars rumble into their first Territory League wrestling event, going blow-for-blow with the Anchorage Raptures. The two teams will square off in four matches of different weight classes. If the four matches end in a 2-2 draw, then the teams settle the score with Warfare, where multiple competitors enter the ring at the same time and attempt to eliminate each other by pin fall or by ejecting their opponent from the ring. In the most recent Territory Wrestling event, the two teams of four wrestlers could not be confined to the ring, injecting chaos into the event by taking their fight into the stands. After the dust has cleared and all folding chairs have received medical attention, spectators stick around for TL Afterdark, in which lively music encourages dancing and exhibition matches keep the adrenaline levels high.<p>
Territory League Wrestling
Territory League Wrestling body-slams the individual-oriented wrestling model and turns it into a team-based sport. Instead of featuring a stable of high-flying solo stars, Territory League fields teams of four to represent a specific city. Each event consists of four individual matches—the first team to win the best of four walks away as the winner. But there’s a catch: as each match goes on, the other three members of each team watch from two separate, ring-side cages, maximizing the tension and trash talk as the night wears on. If the round robin ends in a 2-2 tie, then the match concludes with a Warfare tiebreaker, in which all eight brawlers could potentially be trading haymakers, submission moves, and spandex maintenance tips at the same time.<p>
