Black History Month comes to a close this week, but do not worry, Wrestling For the Culture will continue throughout the rest of the year.
Velveteen Dream Calls Out Indy Wrestlers
The Velveteen Dream takes to Twitter to call out Independent wrestlers. If you watched the last Tough Enough, you may remember how much Patrick Clark (Dream's shoot name) expressed his love for WWE. This is obvious that this is a work. But how cool would it be if this led a program with him and his former tag team partner on the indies, Lio Rush?
Bianca Belair Had Eventful Week
The EST of NXT, Bianca Belair took to Twitter after Mandy Rose whipped her hair during her match on Monday Night Raw. The two took a few jabs at each over with one of the most powerful weapon you can have, the keyboard. Belair alluded to the fact that Rose has some fake body parts after Rose said that Belair's hair clip was fake. This would be better if we could see this play out in a match sooner. Either way, I'm sure Vince McMahon loves it. Why? Cause there's competition!
Later in the week, she was reportedly injured in a match she had with Ember Moon this past week. She took the Eclipse and landed awkwardly. She kicked out at 2, but the referee counted to three and ended the match. Triple H did note that she would be appearing in an upcoming house show and would be facing the champ.

Ricochet made his long-anticipated debut and earned a win over Buddy Murphy. For those wondering if WWE would water him down, he used his signature 630 senton to win the match.
Wrestling For The Culture's Friends Victorius at NYWC Psycho Circus
