Will Michael Elgin Appear At ROH Tonight?

Tonight Ring of Honor’s huge return to the The Sunshine State is just days away! And not only will you see a full night of ROH action LIVE, the whole thing will be taped for ROH TV! On October 25th, the ROH RELOADED tour is barreling into Lakeland and here’s what you can look forward to: PLUS…100% confirmed…”UNBREAKABLE” MICHAEL ELGIN RETURNS TO ROH ACTION IN LAKELAND!

This is what’s been posted on Michael Elgin’s Facebook :

This is what I just received. I was threatened with legal action.
Hey,

We already have the flight bought (which you should have gotten already). No room to eat the costs. It will all be fine and you can come back and get back to normal. There is really no choice because if you are not in Florida it will get messy and we don’t want that.

We want to finish this out and then we can see what to do next.

In Florida we will do a match and an interview. In the interview you need to apologize and be sure to reference Kalamazoo by name since it is a TV market. Do NOT mention the visa situation. Just say that you have had personal issues that kept you away. Reference the World Title and say you respect Jay Briscoe. It doesn’t need to be long but we need to make sure you talk about your remorse for missing events, etc.

Lets just do this the easy way and get through the tapings starting fresh. You have been great here for the last couple years and it is in all of our best interests to keep it going like it was before. I don’t want to see you make another mistake so it is best to listen to us in this regard.

Thanks

Matt Tremont Proclaims He Is Never Retiring

d14-2

The Combat Zone King who mentioned he was retiring at CZW’s Tangled Web 7 and then pulled a big swerve on us by not retiring at all. Then suddenly challenged the King of Ultraviolence Nick Gage.

Tremont’s non-retirement was recently confirmed on Twitter after he  tweeted the following:

There is tons of questions that do remain. When will this fight go down? And will Tremont hold off on wrestling for CZW until he is able to fight Nick Gage?

As someone who’s watched Tremont perform live it’s a incredible thing to watch. Yes, he wrestles in hardcore themed matches but he does it in a fashion of honor. If even the words honor and hardcore can be put together.

Are you a fan of Matt Tremont’s type of wrestling? Do you think the whole hardcore, ultra violent matches are uncalled for? Do they still serve it’s purpose in today’s day in age?

The New CZW Champion Is….

559525_10152352016301933_2083667069946265570_n

This is Sozio. He defeated Biff Busick at CZW’s Tangled Web 7 to become the CZW Heavyweight Champion. After Busick had defeated Chris Dickinson. The two will have a rematch on 11/1/2014 at Cerebral in NYC in a No Rope Barbed Wire match.

For Sozio this is his first run at being the CZW Heavyweight Champion. He’s previously been CZW Junior Heavyweight Champion as well as one half of the CZW Tag Team Champion with Derek Frazier.

Will Sozio be able to retain the title when he meets Busick again at Cerebral in NYC? Or will Busick recapture the gold?

Is Uhaa Nation Heading To WWE?

WWE is said to be very interested in signing Uhaa Nation. They were very impressed by his try out and since then have sent officials to watch his matches, most recently sending someone out to PWG on Friday.

If they do end up signing him I would be very happy. I have always loved his work and I really feel he could be the next big thing.

Ox Baker Passes Away

ox-baker-tshirt-1

It’s being reported that legendary wrestler Ox Baker has passed away. Ox Baker is best known for his finishing move the Heart Punch, a move that he adapted from Stan Stasiak. He was featured in the movie Escape From New York in which he fought Kurt Russell’s character Snake Plissken. He is a winner of numerous championships and most notably one of the most hated and feared villains in the History of Professional Wrestling.

From Wikipedia:

In his career he would defeat “Cowboy” Bob Ellis for the World Wrestling Association belt in Dick The Bruiser’s Indianapolis territory, he would also defeat Carlos Colon for the WWC World Title in Puerto Rico. Baker was a multi-time Tag Team Champion; he has teamed with the likes of Ole Anderson and Skandor Akbar to capture Tag Team Championships in the NWA and NWF. Baker teamed with Big John Studd (then known as Chuck O’ Connor) to win the WWA Tag Team Title in 1976. He also teamed with Superstar Billy Graham to hold the NWA Florida Tag Team Title. Baker would go on to Heart Punch his way through The Sheik to win the Detroit version of the US Heavyweight Title, he also won the World Class Championship and the World Class Texas Title several times. Another memorable Baker feud was with Randy “Macho Man” Savage, in the southern promotion that Savage ran with his father Angelo Poffo and his brother Lanny Poffo.

An estimated 8,000 men have fallen to the Heart Punch. Among them are Fritz Von Erich, David Von Erich, Kerry Von Erich, Jimmy Snuka, Verne Gagne, Ernie Ladd, Harley Race, Bulldog Brower, Mil Mascaras, Hulk Hogan, and The Sheik. Hogan’s knockout came when he tried to wrestle the Florida Title away from Baker. Hogan would eventually get knocked out three nights in a row. Ed Roney challenged Baker numerous times and also chased Baker out of the ring four times. Baker never accepted Roney’s challenge.

Late in his career, Baker appeared with Central States Wrestling as a face and feuded with Rip Rogers.

The Heart Punch Kills

On June 13, 1971, Ox and his partner the Claw were wrestling in an AWA Midwest Tag Team Championship tag team match against Alberto Torres and his partner Cowboy Bob Ellis in Verdigre, Nebraska. Torres was injured during the match and died three days later. Though evidence indicated that Torres died of a ruptured appendix, Baker’s Heart Punch was blamed and, though by his own account Baker was privately distraught over the death, he did “work” it as though he had killed Torres.

On August 1, 1972, in Savannah, Georgia Baker faced Ray Gunkel, who was a popular wrestler in (and part owner of) the Georgia promotion. Though it was claimed that Gunkel dropped dead in the ring from the Heart Punch, other accounts, most notably in the biography of Vince McMahon Sex, Lies and Headlocks, state that Gunkel had suffered a heart attack apparently from over-indulging at a restaurant before the match. The truth is that Gunkel won the match and died in the dressing room after the match.[citation needed] In both cases, Baker was “blamed” for the death.

Wrestling Is Proven Real

B0SBzD0CEAAvL36.jpg large

At last nights Revival Professional Wrestling’s Big Trouble In Little Chicopee we once again saw proof that while a small faction of people believe wrestling isn’t real. We got 100% proof that it is real!

As you can see how this table is broken straight in half. There are no fake materials used here. This is a real deal wooden table. Not any styrofoam or particle board.

It was broken via Dave Cole’s head as Anthony Gangone DDT’d it through the table at the start of their match for the vacant United States Title. A title that was declared vacant when the previous guy quit the company. Gangone would ultimately become the winner.

The Collectors Declare War

64345_1543659819201778_8054650674330185946_n

Last night, a group of renegades lead by Brian XL attacked and brutalized Smiley and Jeremy Leary after their Championship match. They proceeded to bash RPW, it’s fans, and New England in general.

These men have now identified themselves as “The Collectors” and they are Brian XL, Alex Mason, Good Hank Flanders, and Ken Broadway.

Well, gentlemen, this means war. We are inviting you, no, daring you to show your faces at “When Opportunity Knocks” on November 29th in Enfield, CT. And just maybe, a few of the Revival boys will have to make a little trip to New York.

We’ll see ya, boys.
