February 11, 2017
Combat Zone Wrestling celebrated its 18th Birthday on Saturday. This event featured one of the most anticipated debuts, when Matt Riddle entered the Combat Zone to face David Starr in a Title vs. Title Match. Riddle defended the Progress Wrestling Atlas Championship, while Starr defended the wXw Shotgun Championship.
Joey Janela not only being defended the CZW Wired Championship… But he defended the honor of his girlfriend Penelope Ford, when he faced Stockade. Remember, it was only one month ago where Stockade and Father Matthew Tremont handcuffed Janela and forced him to watch Tremont powerbomb Ford through a coffin!
EYFBO looked to take back the CZW Tag Team Championships from Scarlet & Graves. Remember it was at Cage of Death where Wentz and Xavier stole the championships from Ortiz and Draztik.
The main event will saw Joe Gacy defend the CZW World Championship against the Japanese import of Shigehiro Irie. All this and so much more went down at Eighteen.

Once again, the Tag Team Championship match would end in controversy when the Dub Boys came down. As of press time no one truly knows their intentions. However, it wasn’t long before their presence caused a chaotic scene ultimately leading to EYFBO losing the match.

Janela may have been victorious despite Father Matthew Tremont’s presence, but once again his girlfriend Penelope Ford would be stretchered out of the arena after being powerbombed onto cinderblocks by Stockade.
