- Perhaps the
biggest news of the night however did not occur in the ring, but was
rather an announcement made by DJ Hyde. To the roaring approval of the
CZW fans, Hyde announced his own personal signing for CZW's huge
TOURNAMENT OF DEATH 9 event. In a move which has opened eyes and put the
locker room on notice, CZW has come to terms with Big Japan Wrestling's
ABDULLAH KOBAYASHI to make his United States debut live on JUNE 26TH at
the Ultraviolent Underground in Townsend, Delaware! As if this year's
event needed any more hype, it is now officially and quite possibly the
most anticipated Deathmatch tournament of all time!
addition to the announcement regarding one of Big Japan's own in TOD, DJ
Hyde (who just returned with Nick Gage and The Necro Butcher from a
tour of Japan) announced the news that the Combat Zone has been waiting
to hear for years. Starting at TOD, CZW and BJW have entered into a
working agreement, one which will see a steady exchange of talent
between the two most Ultraviolent company's in the world and one that
will ultimately bring together the very best deathmatch talent the world
has to offer. Stay tuned for more details on these very exciting
- ABDULLAH KOBAYASHI wasn't the only name
confirmed for Tournament of Death 9... the main event for 'FIST FIGHT'
was one of the most talked about matches of the year coming in, and
based on the carnage left following the match, it without a doubt
delivered every bit the Ultraviolent slugfest that the fans expected. In
his much requested return to South Philly, the original CZW Icon
brought his A-Game and then some, as he outslugged the Ultraviolent
Terminator, giving the returning ZANDIG not only a big win against Cult
Fiction and Brain Damage, but also his entry into Tournament of Death 9!
Following the match, Cult Fiction sought immediate retribution, sending
MASADA to the ring to draw a line in the sand, and immediately
challenging ZANDIG to a matchup at Tournament of Death. Without much
hesitation, that match was signed, and added to the lineup for CZW's
June 26th return to Delaware! Who will win in a battle of two of the
toughest men to ever grace the black and yellow ring?!
lineup for June 26th's TOURNAMENT OF DEATH is filling up quickly, and as
mentioned, seems poised to be on the most stacked deathmatch
tournaments the Combat Zone has ever seen. Among the matches that have
now been confirmed: ZANDIG vs. MASADA, JC BAILEY vs. DANNY HAVOC (if
cleared to participate), and the American Deathmatch debut of BJW's
ABDULLAH KOBAYASHI! Stay tuned to CZWrestling.com for more news and
announcements regarding the return to the Ultraviolent Underground!
CZW homegrown star ADAM COLE took a major step up the ladder on
Saturday at "Fist Fight!". The blue chipper did what for 3 months seemed
impossible... he defeated THE BLK JEEZ, and did it at his own game,
overcoming the odds which included a returning (and now on his own)
RUCKUS, to defeat SABIAN and become the new CZW JUNIOR HEAVYWEIGHT
CHAMPION! The energetic young contender is now a Champion, and one that
appears poised to lead the already loaded CZW Jr. division into the 2nd
half of 2010. In addition, Cole and the CZW fans received even more good
news, as it appears that his tag team partner Tyler Veritas appears
poised for a speedy recovery from a broken foot suffered just a month
ago. CZWrestling.com will have more on these developments as they become
- Speaking of injuries, the CZW first-aid kit took
quite the beating on Saturday. The Naptown Dragons SCOTTY VORTEKZ
suffered a brutal beatdown at the hands of MASADA. After a visit to the
hospital on Monday afternoon, x-rays confirmed what the Dragons had
feared, a broken arm, cast, and a seat on the CZW disabled list until
the arm recovers, and the couragous Drageon can return to action. Also,
KYLIE PIERCE suffered a debillitating injury on Saturday at the hands of
"The New Horror" Sami Callihan. The fan favorite Pierce suffered a
fractured ankle following Callihan's repeated attacks, and application
of his new "Stretch Muffler" submission hold. As of press time, CZW does
not know how long Miss Pierce will be out of action. Stay tuned to
CZWrestling.com for more on these injuries, and news on when both Scotty
and Kylie will be able to return to action. Everyone in CZW wishes both
a speedy recovery!
- The implosion of NOTORIOUS INC. took
another dramatic turn for the worse (or better depending on who you ask)
on Saturday. After a hard fought and bloody battle between the two
which saw DREW BLOOD score the first victory, business between the two
was immediately taken to the next level. After the match, the brawl
continued, spilling all the way up to the production booth, where the
two were met by DJ Hyde, and agreed that the Combat Zone was no longer
big enough for the both of them. As a result, the two have agreed to
meet again in June, one more time, in a LOSER LEAVES CZW match! Who will
survive in a battle between two former best friends, and tag partners?
Who will see their career continue, and who's will end at the hands of
their former friend? We find out in a month in South Philly!
In a move which will continue the 2010 expansion of the Combat Zone,
CZWrestling.com has today learned of the confirmation of another
exciting announcement which will affect the Combat Zone as we know it.
As confirmed today by owner DJ Hyde, CZW is proud to announce that on
Saturday, August 7th, CZW will debut in Lumberton, NORTH CAROLINA at the
Robeson County Fairgrounds! Tickets will be available soon on
CZWrestling.com! Stay tuned for more information regarding this exciting
