IGNITE (2017) chronology


IGNITE was the inaugural pay-per-view for the VALOR Wrestling promotion. The event was live streamed from the Phillips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia on April 21st, 2017. The event crowed the three inaugural champions for the promotion, including the climax of the VALOR Championship Series.


Upon VALOR's inception, general manager Eddie Morales announced a 16-man tournament titled the VALOR Championship Circuit to crown the companies first World Heavyweight Champion in the leading weeks to IGNITE. Maxwell Verdi would top Brent Delivine on VALOR's first episode with the referee inserting himself between the two, giving Verdi the advantage as he slid back into the ring and hit Delivine with the Desti-Knee. Verdi would proceed to attack Sebastiaan Case on episode 2, making him slim pickings for episode 3. Due to Rolu's injuries, Verdi got a bye into the finals.

Robin Storm after two years away from the ring would return in grand fashion as he bested Barry Stevens in the first round, Brandon Young in the second and Matt Walker in the third. Taking the harder route out of the two, his win over Walker cemented a rematch between the two men 5 years in the making. 5 years prior the two encountered on Innovative CAW Entertainment's Open Warfare with the ICE International Championship on the line, which Maxwell Verdi would win with a slight assistance from Damian Morasko's distraction, retaining the title. 5 years later, both men have grown as well as their desires to become champions once again, this time for VALOR's grandest prize.

VALOR would announce over their Twitter account that a Women's division would be kick-starting at the pay-per-view, and kick-starting with a bang. Jordan Ashba and Gin Merano were the first two women confirmed to have signed contracts with the company and both were offered a match for the newly introduced VALOR Women's Championship. Despite the two being friends, on episode 4 both clarified that they'd be wrestling at their best, guaranteeing the best woman would win.
