Another CZW Alumni Destined For Greatness?
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 @ 05:00pm EDT

When you look at the alumni section of the CZW roster, you will find a great number of names who got their start in the Combat Zone that went on to the big time.  Men like CHARLIE HAAS, ALEX SHELLEY, LOW KI, AJ STYLES, and others have all passed through CZW's doors and are living proof that from small beginnings truly do come great things.

CZW Management wants to take time to congratulate former Combat Zone star MATT CAPICCIONI (aka M-DOGG20) on making the cut for casting of WWE's "Tough Enough" program when it returns.  One of the most gifted junior heavyweights to ever set foot in a CZW ring, M-Dogg was perhaps best known for utilizing a mastery of gymnastics in his matches, scaling the pillars of the Arena & executing extremely high risk maneuvers, and becoming the subject of controversy during the infamous "Philadelphia Wrestling War" spanning 2002-2003.

M-Dogg left CZW shortly after Cage of Death IV to join the defunct California based XPW.  There, he became a 2 time XPW World Tag Team Champion & held the championship up until the company folded in 2003.  M-Dogg would shock everyone by making a surprise return to CZW in 2004 at Best of the Best IV.  Shortly after SONJAY DUTT won the tournament, M-Dogg attacked Sonjay & held the CZW World Junior Heavyweight Championship hostage for the remainder of the year.  Feeling he had nothing to lose, M-Dogg agreed to face Sonjay at Cage of Death VI in a match with no count-outs, falls counting everywhere, and the loser leaving CZW.  In one of the most emotional contests at the event, Sonjay won & M-Dogg was gone from CZW once again.  Since leaving CZW, M-Dogg has competed in various promotions all over the world.  His skill was rightfully noticed by WWE and now he finds himself in a position many in our industry dream of.

Good luck & congratulations from all of us in the Combat Zone to you M-Dogg.  Make your dream a reality.
