Once In A Lifetime
August 5, 2017
After months of anticipation, the biggest night in CZW history took place on Saturday when Combat Zone Wrestling presented Once In A Lifetime. The event featured Atsushi Onita taking on Matt Tremont in a No Rope Barbed Wire Deathmatch which featured Onita’s trademarked exploding bats!
On top of that legendary encounter, Saturday marked the return of one of the most exciting matches in CZW History… The Aerial Assault! That wasn’t all… As Lio Rush and Joey Janela entered their final chapter of their storied war. Meanwhile, Shane Strickland defended the CZW World Championship against Former CZW World Champion MASADA! All that and so much more went down on Saturday.

Message from CZW Tag Team Championship CCK
The CZW Tag Team Champions, Chris Brookes & Kid Lykos, checked in with the Combat Zone from England.
