If you were a big ECW fan like I was you’re sure to want to check out this reunion show with lots of interactive ticket options for the REAL hardcore fans.  One of those options is to tape a promo with the star of your choice for 40 bucks or you can do a “fantasy”seminar with Raven I’m unsure what makes it a fantasy Raven has surely been around long enough to have some knowledge to pass on to the next generation.

Classic Championshiop Wrestling Tillsonburg fair results

Classic Championship Wrestling made its yearly return to the Tillsonburg fair  Saturday night.  A fan in the audience told me of a past encounter at the fair between Tyson Dux and Jake O’Reilly which he thought was the best wrestling match he’d seen live.  No doubt the good folks at CCW would try and outdo that show with the nights action.  Every match but the first happened in some degree of rain, a dark cloud passed over during the Lancastershire cup match in a pretty scary “o shit are we gonna get wet” moment.  The rain held off until just before the main event a CAGE MATCH I was hoping could be turned into an ELECTRIFIED  CAGE MATCH but no such luck.

The first match was a gauntlet match for CCW womens champion Cherry Bomb who first beat Ianna Titus with a lone superkick in about 5 seconds.  The second fall was Cherry pinning Courtney Rush.   This part of the match was the best wrestling wise with some nice exchanges.  The last fall was Cherry dropkicking a bent over in the turnbuckle Evilyn for a quick 3.

CEZAR won the newly vacated Lancastershire cup over Jake O’reilly.  The l cup rules are not very fan friendly as soon as this match was announced a number of fans in the audience sounded pretty pissed off saying these matches are always boring.  They have a rounds system with multiple falls and I agree its not that interesting I don’t know where the gimmicks going either.

The Big money titans lost to Adam Jacobs and his mystery partner who turned out to be Tito Santana.  The Titans had control for most of the match even with some help from Big Money but couldn’t get past Tito once he got a hot tag.

Sabu beat Michael Elgin

Freak Show vs. Bloody Bill Skullion was the next match and they did pretty much the same stuff as the last time I saw them wrestle last September.  It was good then and good still I know they’re wrestling more times in the next month maybe they’ll change it up a little more next time.  The finish was Freakshow reversing a move onto a flaming chair Bill had set up.

CCW champion Daemon Reznor defended his title in a wild last man standing match that was originally advertised as a first blood match.  The two fought into the stands and eventually Deaner got hit with a chair got back up before the ref could notice as Evilyn knocked Deaner back down causing him to lose.

As they  set up the cage for the main event CCWs favorite army official came out and challenged anyone in the crowd to do 20 push ups.  I went to the washroom at this point as I know anyone can do 20 push ups lol.  I also went to check out the petting zoo which had baby monkeys,those inbred mini goats you’ve gotta feel sorry for and some Australian critters that were pretty cute (if your into that kinda thing)

In the main event Jay mcDonald beat Danger boy Derek Wylde in a cage match this match was held because Wylde had kicked a camera out of Mcdonalds wifes hand at the last Tillsonburg CCW show.  At one point Wylde tried escaping out of the cage but got the door slammed on him by Jays wife.  Someone in the crowd behind me tapped me and said I sell a better slam than Mcdonald but I didn’t know how to feel about that.  Its cool he saw my youtube chop video BUT if your comparing my slam to his I know mine was really the shits lol.  He teaches a school too apparently maybe the locals should save their money and try and go to London to train with Wylde or hit up Windsor for Dux.  Anyways the finish saw Jay climb the cage Wylde fought him off a little but sent him to the outside of the cage.  Where CCWs president fell through a ringside table from the top of the cage.  I hadn’t seen a spot like that in awhile was good to see some hardcore being put throughout this show.  The end was a good finale to a night of hardcore wrestling with some classic style wrestling thrown in as well.

After the show I went and did an interview with legend Tito Santana you can catch here soon.  Altogether this show was one of the best I’d seen in awhile being a fan of the hardcore wrestling genre.  Lots of shows have one specialty match and leave it at that,I liked this one had a few specialty matches and no lag in entertainment.  I would’ve put the womens match and Sabus match later but those are the only changes I would’ve made and maybe some more time and offense for Elgin.  Their next show will be hard to top this but I’m sure their upto the challenge check out http://www.classic-championship-wrestling.com for more info on the promotion and upcoming fair dates near you hell they might even be free.

Sabu vs 2 Cold Scorpio ladder match’99

  From CWA at Midevil times in Toronto a highlight of this match for me was when they battled at the top of the ladder and 2 cold hit some kind of pyro that sparked.  Another highlight at this show was hanging out near the back curtains listening to sabu and 2 cold shit on some of the local talent I had seen since 5 years old.   As they planned out there match I laughed out loud at one point and Sabu looked around the corner at me and swore he didn’t think it was funny as I did.  A low point at that show was a fan jump kicking another fan in the stands.   Or it could’ve been a work the kick looked nice lol.

  A Ring N Ears one night tournament final saw these two Ontario legends lock up w/Bill winning in the end I think lol.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Ring n Ears was the shit!!! The Opera House is my favorite venue for anything too,so maybe that helps but RING N EARS was hands down my favorite series of events.

  Another star studded AWF main event from the SCAR WARS show.  My boy won a free t shirt and wore it for gym forever thats why I remember the shows name(i gave him the answer still).  This show was pretty good form beginning to end some fans marked out cuz Kanyon(r.i.p) was there in the audience but I didn’t go anywhere near him.  I did get that autographed Terry Funk t from a previous post there though.
