The Hunt For A Number One Contender
Wednesday, October 19, 2011 @ 10:41am EDT

It was announced last night as part of the CZW Newsletter that CZW Officials are looking for a Number One Contender for the World Junior Heavyweight Championship.  Therefore, CZW Officials have announced a Six Man Single Elimination Tournament that will span both the November 5th Déjà Vu event in Indianapolis and the November 12th Night of Infamy event in Philadelphia.  CZW has chosen Ryan McBride, Jonathan Gresham, AR Fox, Dustin Rayz, Drew Gulak, and the debuting Uhaa Nation to compete in this tournament.

In the first match on November 5th, Jonathan Gresham will take on the man who traveled Europe with him this summer, Drew Gulak.  Gulak is no stranger to Championships, as he was CZW Wired TV Champion for little over a year before losing the championship to AR Fox.  Since losing the championship, Gulak along with Gresham have been touring Europe.  Meanwhile, Gresham is no stranger to tournaments having competed in the recent Junior Heavyweight Challenge Tournament at Project Mayhem and of course having competed in Best of the Best X.  Both men have been receiving rave reviews from fans and their peers after traveling across Europe representing CZW.  Both are deserving of championship opportunities, but only one will move on to the Number One Contenders Three Way Match at Night of Infamy on November 12th.

The second match will pit Dustin Rayz against the veteran, Ryan McBride.  Ryan McBride is someone else who is no stranger to champions, as McBride won the Junior Heavyweight Championship in 2008 at Cage of Death X.  Dustin Rayz on the other hand, this will only be his third contest for the Combat Zone.  Even though Rayz hasn’t seen success in either of his first two contests, some question if his losses were legit due to outside circumstances.  Even with the losses, Rayz has impressed CZW Officials enough to earn the right to compete in this Tournament.  This will be the battle to watch as Rayz battles in front of the fans of Indianapolis who cheer him on regularly when he competes for IPW.  Or will the Maryland native and CZW mainstay stop Rayz dead in his tracks on November 5th?

The final match will definitely be a clash in styles as “The People’s Choice” AR Fox takes on the debuting Junior Heavyweight Strongman, Uhaa Nation!  AR Fox is out for redemption as Fox nearly became the CZW Junior Heavyweight Champion at Proving Grounds if it weren’t for the interference from DJ Hyde.  Fox would most definitely like a second chance at Adam Cole should the opportunity arise at the end of this tournament.  However, Fox has to face off against the debuting Uhaa Nation.  Nation and Fox actually consider themselves friends, as Fox has helped Nation get hired by wrestling promotions across the US.  However, it will be different when Nation gets the chance of a lifetime to possibly challenge for one of the most prestigious championships in the Combat Zone. As stated earlier, this will be a styles clash as everyone in the Combat Zone knows that AR Fox is simply a death-defying daredevil who will soar to new heights to win.  Whereas Uhaa Nation is a strong-style competitor who can bench-press up to 500 lbs.!  But you can’t let that fool you as Uhaa Nation is known for his aerial abilities when necessary.

These six men begin their trek to the Junior Heavyweight Championship on November 5th at Déjà Vu.  Only three get to move on to the three way dance on November 12th at Night of Infamy.  But only one will get to challenge for the Junior Heavyweight Championship at a later date.  To be there live for both these events, head over to the CZW Pro Shop to purchase your tickets now will they still remain.
