Odyssey Pro Wrestling launches into 2022 on the 29th January with Overboard which is ladened with new champions defending their titles and new opportunities up for grabs. The WWE Royal Rumble may also be on this same day, but I have no doubt that OPW will steal the spotlight for themselves and prove why Morecambe is the place to be for quality wrestling. But who will come out on top and start the new year strong? Join me as I run down the card and give my predictions.
First off, perhaps the most anticipated match of the night, the 20 man rumble, has to be addressed. With most participants yet to be revealed, I don’t have much material to base a prediction off just yet. Anyway, this physically huge bout deserves its own article to do it justice – so keep a look out for this coming soon.
Alexxis Falcon vs Gia Adams
Instead, I’ll turn to an explosive grudge match where emotions will be running high and both competitors will be keen to bounce back from a disappointing loss at Buried Treasure. I am of course referring to Alexxis Falcon vs Gia Adams. It was these two with Taonga and Lizzy Evo in a fatal four-way match to crown the very first OPW Women’s Champion and in a hard fought battle, Taonga ended up on top. But this was only thanks to Gia unexpectedly turning on Alexxis in a jealous rage that she had already been eliminated. Now, these two have the chance to take it to one another and prove who the better woman is. It’s hard to say who it is between these two, as Gia’s elimination was mainly due to Taonga and Evo dishing out a two on one attack. Alexxis made it all the way to the final two and showed her grit to be able to continue fighting for so long. Having been friends and partners in the ring, these two know each other very well and will certainly be able to reverse the others move set. However, I think that Gia’s determination to prove that she is worthy of the respect of the fans after losing in all of her matches so far, as well as wanting to justify turning on her friend, will drive her forward to win this. She is tapping into her aggressive side and it’s yet to be seen what she is capable of, and here we may all find out. Alexxis is resilient as they come, and one of the most popular stars in Morecambe, but her emotions may prevent her from reaching her potential here, especially at the hands of a determined Adams.
