Speedball Mike Bailey is Canada's latest export to the indie scene. He's taken the US by storm, making inroads in both Combat Zone Wrestling and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. He won the former's Best of the Best Tournament this year, and he's a heavy favorite to take the latter's Battle of Los Angeles. And at Beyond Wrestling's biggest event ever, this past weekend's Americanrana '15, he came to the ring to take on a secret opponent who turned out to be Danny Cannon. The elusive, reclusive spitfire burst out of the Mid-South scene last year, and as quickly as his star rose nationally thanks to Beyond, it went back into hiding due to injuries and an apparent retirement. Cannon's lack of dates may have something to do with his lack of feeling like he belonged anywhere he went. Thankfully, Beyond Wrestling has always felt like home to him.

Even though the match is super new and would probably be a healthy bargaining chip for people to go and purchase Americanrana '15 in some manner, Denver Colorado (the man, not the place!) decided to release it for free as a thank you to the fans for reaching 20,000 YouTube subscribers. This is why you, yes, YOU should subscribe to the channel today. When it hits milestones such as these, Colorado releases primo shit for you for free. Enjoy, folks.
