A pair of recent roster additions each set on climbing the ranks in PREMIER are about to have a chance to prove why they belong on team respect. On Sunday, July 17th in Gilroy, CA, Alexander Hammerstone (2-0) and Douglas James (1-0) face off in singles action!
In Alexander Hammerstone’s last appearance at the Embrace the Grind Challenge, he wrestled against “The Butcher” Tyler Bateman (2-3). With an impressive offense, Hammerstone would put Bateman away to earn his second consecutive win. His accolades in his PREMIER debut year would also be enough for the fans to name him Best New Athlete for 2015. Now, he makes his first appearance in 2016 against an Athlete who very well could claim this year’s rookie recognition.
Douglas James speed, tenacity, and technical prowess have allowed him to fairly use the moniker “Pound-for-Pound the Best Athlete Around.” In his debut match, he showcased his feats against Manny Mars (0-2). The two exchanged quick and complicated holds and reversals with each man gaining ground on the other. Just as it seemed Mars would submit James to a Dragon Sleeper, the new arrival demonstrated his strength by countering the lock with a suplex variation. As James returns in search of his second win, he’ll have to go through an Athlete determined to keep his own streak alive.
