3/25 – NEW MATCHES added to Saturday’s CZW debut in LAFAYETTE!

As we close in on the final hours until this SATURDAY’s huge Midwest debut in LAFAYETTE, Indiana, CZW management has put the finishing touches on a lineup that looks poised to change the face of Midwest wrestling as we know it.

Late Wednesday night, CZWrestling.com learned of three new matches added to this Saturday’s Ultraviolent affair. In what should be a very highly contested matchup, the reunited NOTORIOUS INC (Devon Moore and Drew Blood) will team up to take on CZW blue-chippers ADAM COLE and Wired Champion TYLER VERITAS in a tag-team challenge. As of late, Devon Moore and Drew Blood have been focused on their solo careers in CZW, each acheiving significant success out on their own, and both seemingly now in a tailspin having each suffered a number of frustrating setbacks in recent months. Now, with each struggling individually, the once successful duo has seemingly decided to pair up again in an effort to get things back on track doing what they do best. Of course, if they think their match on Saturday against Cole and Veritas is anything close to a sure thing, they will be sorely mistaken. Cole and Veritas are among the brightest young stars in the Combat Zone and will provide a very dangerous opponent for the tag vets. We’ll see who comes out on top on Saturday in Lafayette.

In addition, CZWrestling.com has learned of a few changes to the lineup. CZW Jr. Heavyweight Champion SABIAN was informed today that due to injury, his original opponent ‘Quick’ Carter Grey will be unable to make it to Saturday night’s event in Lafayette. While the bitter champ would certainly enjoy a day off in Indiana, CZW Management has informed him that he is line for anything but that. With Grey out, officials have found a suitable replacement, and as such, Sabian will be in action on Saturday night… against his former label mate RUCKUS! The two have unfinished business stemming back to January’s event where Ruckus’ absense contributed to the BLKOUT’s loss to TBA, and the loss of the BLKOUT name forever. Now out on their own for good, the two will meet in Indiana with plenty of business to settle.

Also this evening, CZWrestling.com learned of another injury, this one to BANDIDO JR., which will keep him from appearing at this Saturday’s event to team with his partner Azrieal against Zero Gravity. Instead, ZERO GRAVITY will be in action against a very interesting pairing in A.R. FOX and CZW newcomer CHIP DAY! This match is full of young, high-flying, and hungry athletes who are all looking for a long-term job in the Combat Zone. This is one match you will not want to miss!

Finally, and perhaps most disturbingly, CZWrestling.com has learned that ‘The New Horror’ Sami Callihan has pulled himself off this weekend’s show. Citing “absolutely no desire to share a ring with DJ Hyde EVER again”, Callihan informed CZW officials that he is refusing to attend Saturday’s event. Of course, DJ Hyde was not pleased upon hearing the news, and has decided to make an example of Callihan. In a message just before this press release was sent out, DJ Hyde wished to apologize to CZW fans for the late change, and declared “Sami Callihan wants to F&*! with the fans, well I’m gonna F%&! with him. On Saturday April 10th when we return to Philly, he’s gonna face his partner JON MOXLEY in a one-on-one match!”. So with that shocking news, we now have our first official matchup for CZW’s April 10th return to Philadelphia for “SWINGING FOR THE FENCES!”. DJ Hyde has also promised that he will still be in attendance this Saturday night in Lafayette.

The CZW roster and crew is very excited to make their long-awaited debut in the midwest, and this Saturday promises to be a night that will live forever in Indiana wrestling history. This is going to be one show you will NOT want to miss. It may be a new city, but it’s the same ULTRAVIOLENT you’ve come to expect from the Combat Zone, and it’s ready to invade INDIANA this Saturday! We will see you there!
