â€œWildfireâ€ Tommy Rich vs. Chris Cronus
Tommy Rich has been a major player in professional wrestling for well over 25 years. Another athlete who was wise beyond his years, Richâ€™s fiery demeanor and textbook wrestling technique propelled Rich to early and major success. Rich became the youngest ever NWA World Heavyweight Champion, defeating Harley Race in April of 1981, and went on to capture several other national and regional championships throughout his career. Rich, a southern boy born and bred through his entire career, experienced an unlikely career resurgence in ECW in the late-90s as the leader of the â€œFull Blooded Italiansâ€. Known as â€œThe Big Donâ€, his Italian heritage was always highly in question, but his toughness never was, regularly surviving wars with everyone from The Blue Meanie to New Jack. Now, Wildfire makes his way to CAPW to battle Chris Cronus, someone who much like Rich, has achieved major success at a very young age. Itâ€™s the old guard vs. the new guard August 5th when Cronus meets Tommy Rich.
UPDATE ON TRACY SMOTHERS CONTROVERSY
Last week, we broke the story regarding Tracy Smothersâ€™ out-of-control verbal and physical outburst following our June 3rd live event. Smothers, irate over losing his CAPW Heavyweight Title to The Blue Meanie, abused members of CAPW staff and DEMANDED to be placed in the Heavyweight Title Cage Match along with Meanie and Bane on August 5. It was a different side of Smothers that we had not seen since his return to Cleveland, and based on the intense hatred between Smothers & Bane this year, and the years-long rivalry heâ€™s had with Meanie, itâ€™s certainly not surprising.
Since this past week, we have learned that CAPW Officials continue to meet with their legal team, as well as STO representatives regarding the ability to air the controversial piece of footage that captured Smothers at his wildest moments following losing the title. We can also confirm Smothers has visited the CAPW front office within the past week, reportedly for some type of contract negotiation. Furthermore, we have also been made aware that shortly following Smotherâ€™s June 3 outburst, BOTH The Blue Meanie and Jason Bane were informed of Tracy Smothersâ€™ comments and apparently had very candid remarks in response.
We are still striving to piece together these controversial happenings as the chaos just seems to escalate as we grow closer to the CAPW Championship Steel Cage Match August 5 at the Plain Dealer Pavilion, still scheduled to be The Blue Meanie defending against Jason Bane, much to the chagrin of Tracy Smothers. Next week we will have a further update on this saga.
