Decade of Elite: The Inside Story of Texas Elite Wrestling | June 3, 2014

-The book, Decade of Elite: The Inside Story of Texas Elite Wrestling, is now available to buy. Written by TEW Proprietor Patrick L. Wallace, aka Sean Cordova, follow the ten years of the promotion that he alongside Josh and Charles Vaughn, aka Chaz Thomas and Maxx Lavaro, built from the ground up. What began as a wrestling promotion with just a handful of wrestlers throughout the years would become a promotion that over a hundred would come through. Within the pages of this book there are stories that have never been told before and Patrick L. Wallace shares them here. In the decade, there were good times and there were bad. The loss of his father, Charles V. Wallace, almost broke the foundation of the promotion, but he alongside every wrestler and staff member fought through the pain and kept TEW alive in his father's memory.

Texas Elite Wrestling was not just a promotion in a small East Texas town of Gladewater, it was a place where different types of wrestlers came and created a family.

WE THANK YOU! | May 19, 2014

-All good things have to come to an end sometimes to be able to step back, reflect and show appreciation. We did just that Sunday, May 18, 2014 as we closed out Texas Elite Wrestling at the Wallace Arena. For a decade we have had the privilege of entertaining a diverse and ever-changing crowd; from tailgaters, beer-drinkers, college kids, families and children. We catered to them all somehow or another. Over a hundred and fifty wrestlers, referees, and staff have come through Texas Elite Wrestling and we would like to thank each and every one of you!

To the fans: Thank You! Without your support, it wouldn't have happened. Month after month, you were there cheering and booing the wrestlers you loved and hated and we wouldn't have it any other way. Texas Elite Wrestling is filled with blood, sweat and tears and crazy as it seems, that's not just from the wrestlers. We had a great time being there for everyone each month and there may be more shows on the road in the future, but it will never be the same as it was for ten years at the place that Joey Corman nicknamed the Wallace Arena.

Charles V. Wallace passed away in 2011 and we held strong for three years keeping his memory alive and we believe that with everyone's support yesterday we made him proud. Texas Elite Wrestling wasn't just a wrestling promotion, it was family. Every wrestler, referee, staff member, and fan is one huge family and we love each and every one of you!

From Patrick L. Wallace, Stephaney Wallace, Andrew Wallace, Janis Wallace, Richard Wallace, Derek Wallace, Charles Vaughn and Josh Vaughn, Long Live TEW!

FINAL EVENT: MAY 18, 2014 | May 9, 2014

-On Sunday, May 18, 2014, Texas Elite Wrestling will host its final event at the Wallace Arena. What began as a roster of five wrestlers was transformed into near one hundred that shared the love and passion for professional wrestling. In the decade, a brotherhood was formed and a family developed. Good guys and villains, allies and enemies; both inside the ring and sometimes out. Hidden underneath characters and gimmicks the real individual always shined through. We provided a home for wrestlers that were visionaries at heart. It was a place that they could see their dream become reality. Ten years of people discovering themselves along the way through the world of professional wrestling. And on May 18th, we present the final show - Decade of Face-Off.

We invite everyone out to show support one last time. Stacked card with eight huge matches! Show begins at 3:00 PM. Free Admission.

TEW @ Gusher Days - HUGE SUCCESS! | April 21, 2014

-Texas Elite Wrestling once again entertained the fans downtown Gladewater at the 29th Annual East Texas Gusher Days on Saturday, April 19, 2014. This was our fifth time being able to perform in front of the great people at the festival and we all felt that it was a huge success. Before the event, we got the opportunity to participate in the morning parade and won second place! To accept the award from Gusher Days President Nick Foster was Chris Preston, Hunter Dude Preston and Jeremy Preston known as 3 Man Preston.

For the special event, "Big Killa" Khan came out of retirement and fought against Sean Cordova and showed the hundreds in attendance his dominance and power as he won hard-hitting bout. We also brought new talent downtown that had not experienced the intensity which is Gusher Days. Elite Champion Black Train, Creed, Dracan, Broken Keith, Chris Grimes, CW Shadows, Lino and Soo-Bhak-Do. All performed great and we are proud to have them a part of Texas Elite Wrestling.

Head over to Results and find out what all went down!

Dylan Smasher Smashes Competition! | April 6, 2014

-On Saturday, April 5, 2014, the hometown resident of Grand Saline, Dylan Smasher, came prepared for a challenge as he saw competition against three different opponents in one match. At the very beginning of the event, Dylan Smasher made an enemy out of Slim Matthew who was announcing the event. Dylan commented that Grand Saline's Band Director would serve as the announcer. Later in the evening after Smasher made his way out for the main event, Slim returned and brought out not only his monster known as Creed but Sean Cordova as well. It seemed like we would have a 2 vs. 1 Handicap Match, but Hunter Dude Preston came to the ring and evened the odds. As the crowd of Grand Saline cheered for the impromptu tag-team main event, Hunter Dude Preston viciously attacked Dylan Smasher and a 3 vs. 1 Handicap Match commenced.

The odds were stacked against the hometown challenger, but somehow he fought valiantly against the three foes with Slim Matthew serving as the ringside manager. Each time when it seemed like Smasher was down and out, he fought back up stronger and faster. Eventually, he sent both Sean Cordova and Hunter Dude Preston out of the ring and placed his full attention to the biggest man in the match - Creed. He came off the top rope with a huge splash that he calls, "The Ultra Smash," and pinned Creed's shoulders down to the mat for the huge victory!

"Smash!" was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone that attended the event and everyone that made the event possible!

Final TEW Event - May 18, 2014 | March 23, 2014

-On Sunday, May 18, 2014, Texas Elite Wrestling will hold its final event in Gladewater, Texas. This decision has been in discussions for over a year and we feel that with TEW celebrating ten years in January, this is the best time to have the final event.

We invite everyone to the show to come out and support their favorite wrestlers. But we are not done yet! TEW will be heading on the road in the month of April. On April 5th, we will be presenting "Smash!" at the Grand Saline High School Gymnasium. On April 19th, we have once again been invited to the East Texas Gusher Days as we present "Unrestrained" and "Battle of Gladewater."

Cory Summers Wins TEW Championship! | March 23, 2014

-After losing the TEW Heavyweight Championship on November 3, 2013 most speculated that Cory Summers would never be able to capture the title again, but never once did he believe that. He claimed for months that he had the biggest heart in the promotion and vowed to overcome all the obstacles that lay in his way. First was the biggest man on the roster, Creed. The Independent Wrestling Commerce had him in their back pocket if the time came that they needed to bring him in during the war between The Rise and The Demise, but Slim Matthew introduced him early and he and Creed aligned with The Demise.

On January 26th, just two days before his twentieth birthday, Summers teamed with members of The Rise to face Creed and several members of The Demise. In this match, Summers and Creed fought to the outside and were counted out. Kross, on the other hand, refused to be a defending champion and Slim Matthew made it known that he supported the decision.

On February 23rd, Cory Summers saw singles action against Creed. Although Summers had the experience, Creed certainly had the advantage due to size. This is where the mention of Summers’ big heart came into play as he proved that in professional wrestling size doesn’t matter as he triumphed over the monster. With the win, it gave him an opportunity to face Mykal Kross for the TEW Heavyweight Title!

One month after a victory over the largest man on the roster and befriending him after the match, Summers walked into the main event against Mykal Kross with the most prized possession on the line. Summers certainly brought his A-Game, but Kross did as well as this was the first time since capturing the championship that he was willing to defend. Summers has a never say die attitude and it was shown in this match as he refused to stay down time after time.

Summers had a few counters in his arsenal and sent Kross down to the mat. Three seconds later, Official Chris Grimes raised the hand of Cory Summers as the new TEW Heavyweight Champion! We would like to congratulate him on the huge win. We have been informed that the new Elite Champion Mongoose has already made a challenge to Cory Summers in a Champion vs. Champion Match at “Smash!” in Grand Saline, Texas on April 5th!

Sean Cordova Turns on Maxx Lavaro | March 23, 2014

-Maxx Lavaro hasn’t been too happy about the members of The Rise not having his back during or after his matches. Sean Cordova made it known in a backstage interview that he always supported Lavaro, but stayed in backstage by Lavaro’s request. For the past few months, Lavaro has lost a friend in Dylan Smasher, lost the Tag-Team Championship, and lost a Crimson Halo Match.

After winning the Innovation Title, last eliminating Dylan Smasher, Sean Cordova and a few members of The Rise came to the ring to congratulate him on the victory. Lavaro sent them all away except for Cordova. He screamed in Cordova’s face several times in the altercation stating that Cordova was never around in his losses, but was the first when he won. Never cared when he was at the bottom, but when he stood high on the mountain there was Cordova trying to take some of the spotlight. Cordova apologized to Lavaro and asked for a handshake. Eventually, Lavaro shook Cordova’s hand. As Lavaro celebrated with the title, Cordova pulled him back, kicked him and drove the Innovation Title into Lavaro’s head simultaneously with The Big Bang. He stood over Lavaro and challenged him to a match at Texas Face-Off on May 18th with the Innovation Title on the line!
