Premier XII – Kratos vs Graves


Premier Wrestling returns on Sunday, March 6th in Gilroy, California for PREMIER XII. The main event will be the Premier Champion “The God Of War” JR Kratos (9-2-1) defending against the winner of the 2015 Embrace The Grind Challenge winner, “The Soul Fighter” Joe Graves (4-1-1).

Winning the Embrace The Grind Challenge at PREMIER XI this past November in Gilroy, Graves earned his title shot by going undefeated in the tournament over Timothy Thatcher and “Mr. Athletic” Jeff Cobb.

Graves will go into March 6th trying to figure out how to dethrone the Premier Champion JR Kratos. At PREMIER XI, Kratos and Gabriel Gallo battled to a double knockout. Though he retained his title by a technicality of the double knockout, Kratos is looking to get his arm raised in victory once again in the Premier ring.

JR Kratos is one of the most well rounded competitors in pro wrestling today, but Joe Graves will go into their match on March 6th with the advantage on the ground. Will Graves’s ground game take him to the gold? Or will JR Kratos once again walk out of the Premier ring champion?

Find out on Sunday, March 6th at the IFDES Lodge – Portuguese Hall, Old Gilroy St, Gilroy, CA 95020. Show Time will be 5:00pm. Doors open at 4:30pm
