IWC World Heavyweight Title Match:
Dennis Gregory defends against Claudio Castagnoli
IWC officials have been looking for somebody to put against IWC World Heavyweight Champion Dennis Gregory. As we mentioned with the announcement of several Revengeance 4! matches, he has eliminated much of his competition recently. But now, a friend of two men recently scorned by Gregory has stepped up to the challenge. “Double C” Claudio Castagnoli contacted IWC officials about getting a shot at Gregory. Claudio, a member of the Kings of Wrestling stable with Larry Sweeney and Chris Hero, was upset at the recent actions towards his good friends. Gregory cost Sweeney the Super Indy Title back in July by busting him open during his match against John McChesney. Then, after Hero checked on Sweeney, he confronted Gregory about it, to which Gregory responded by attacking Hero. The two brawled out from the locker room, as seen earlier on IWCwrestling.com. Castagnoli was eager to defend the honor of his fellow Kings of Wrestling, and IWC officials were happy to insert him into the match. So now, Castagnoli will be getting his first shot at the IWC World Heavyweight Title as he takes on the dominant, power-hungry champ, Gregory.
IWC Super Indy Title Match:
“Fabulous” John McChesney defends against Davey Richards
IWC officials were working furiously to sign a Super Indy Title Match for “Fabulous” John McChesney. After McChesney joined up with Dennis Gregory’s yet-to-be-named faction and practically stole the Super Indy Title from “Sweet N Sour” Larry Sweeney, it’s been one match after another to try and get the title off of McChesney. Right after he won the title, IWC Promoter Norm Connors booked him in a baseball bat match with Sweeney. Then, they brought in the man McChesney seemingly could not beat last year, Delirious. But after McChesney was able to get past both men, they decided to go outside the company. They went seeking after one man they knew would have no remorse. A member of the No Remorse Corps in Ring of Honor, Davey Richards has been plying his trade across the country since his debut in June 2004, wrestling for ROH, IWA Mid-South, PWG, and many more. Trained by west coast stand-out Tony Kozina, Richards made his name in the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla company in So-Cal, teaming with Super Dragon to capture the PWG Tag Team Titles in 2005. The next year, he became one of the names added to the already prestigious list of men who have won the ECWA Super 8 Tournament. His name joins men like Low Ki, Reckless Youth, Christopher Daniels, Petey Williams, and WWE star Paul London. He made his debut for ROH, becoming a protege of Pro Wrestling NOAH star KENTA. In September 2006, Richards won the PWG Battle of Los Angeles Tournament, and a f ew months later, recaptured the PWG Tag Titles with Roderick Strong. Early in 2007, Richards and Strong joined up in ROH as the No Remorse Corps, taking no prisoners, and taking out people left and right. IWC officials have asked Davey to bring that same level of no remorse when he challenges McChesney for the Super Indy Title!
IWC Tag Team Title Match:
The Gambino Brothers defend against Sexual Harassment
Another title match has been signed for Revengeance 4!. At No Excuses 3, when the Hollywood Balds interjected themselves into the Sexual Harassment vs. Facade & Gargano match, IWC Promoter Norm Connors made the stipulation that the winners would get a Tag Team Title shot the next time IWC came to Court Time. The Balds eliminated Facade & Gargano with a double-team Stampede Sugar Coated Cookie Cutter, and it was down to the Balds and Harassment. Justin Idol nailed Jimmy DeMarco with a sickening Spirit Crusher to pick up the win! Now, Sexual Harassment will challenge the Balds’ partners in The Family, the IWC Tag Team Champions, The Gambino Brothers!
Winner Receives a Super Indy Title Shot in November:
“Balls Hot” Troy Lords vs. “Da Good Guy” Azrieal
More title shots are on the line on October 14th. “Balls Hot” Troy Lords and “Da Good Guy” Azrieal have opened up the last two Court Time Sports Center shows with incredible back-and-forth bouts. At Summer Sizzler 4, Azrieal shoved the referee into the ropes, and capitalized with his top rope double stomp to the back of the head. At No Excuses 3, Azrieal tried it again, but Lords had it scouted. He nailed a swinging fisherman buster to pick up a win. With their series tied at 1-1, this rubber match has been signed for Revengenace 4! with the stipulation that the winner will get a shot at the IWC Super Indy Title at November Pain 3.
Rematch from No Excuses 3 :
“The Baddest Man in IWC” Raymond Rowe vs. “The Havana Pitbull” Ricky Reyes
At No Excuses 3, “The Baddest Man in IWC” Raymond Rowe took on former IWC World Heavyweight Champion “The Havana Pitbull” Ricky Reyes. Reyes was a dominant IWC Champion for 8 months after these two first met in the semi-finals of the IWC World Heavyweight Title Tournament at Boiling Point 2. Reyes was able to make Rowe pass out following a dragon sleeper, but Rowe was already in bad shape after the Unholy Alliance knocked him out with an alcohol-soaked rag in the opening round. When they met on August 4th, Rowe wasn’t at 100% once again. After being out for 3 weeks with broken ribs, Rowe made his return to the ring for the first time since taking on Samoa Joe. It was an incredible contest between Rowe and Reyes, and some have called it the best match of the evening. Rowe picked up the win with several consecutive powerbombs. Both men have a win, so they’ll get one more chance at each other on October 13th!
BabyFace Fire vs. The Hollywood Balds
Speaking of The Family, BabyFace Fire is looking for revenge against the Gambinos & Balds. After their IWC Tag Team Title shot at No Excuses 3, the Gambinos celebrated their win with champagne. After BFF got the champagne bottle off of the champs and doused their sister Viki with it, Marshall took exception and smashed a bottle over the head of Shiima Xion. After being out for 4 weeks with lacerations to the face, Xion is back, and both members of BabyFace Fire are ready to take out The Family! First, they’re taking on Jimmy DeMarco & Vendetta, the Hollywood Balds!
Super Hentai vs. “The Shooter” Brent Albright
HENTAI went back to his old name of Super Hentai after he was attacked by the former Unholy Alliance of Dennis Gregory, Brent Albright, and his longtime friend Sebastian Dark. He left his Unholy Alliance life behind and embraced the style and name that brought him success as the first-ever IWC Super Indy Champion. The night he was attacked, he took Jon Bolen’s spot against Albright, but due to the injuries sustained to his arm in the attack, Albright was able to capitalize and make him submit to the Crowbar submission. In Newville, Hentai bounced back and, with the help of a ringside Larry Sweeney, he rolled up Albright to get a revenge win. With their series tied at 1-1, Hentai and Albright are on a collision course for Revengeance 4!
Faith In Nothing debuts against Johnny Gargano & Michael Facade
IWC’s tag division is stronger than ever. In addition to IWC Tag Team Champions The Gambino Brothers, IWC’s tag division also includes the Hollywood Balds, Sexual Harassment, BabyFace Fire, The Cleveland Mafia, Michael “The Bomber” Facade & Johnny Gargano, and now, the tag division gets even better with the addition of Faith In Nothing! Cleveland wrestling stand-outs Christian Faith & Vincent Nothing have become known for their big bruising style that they’ve shown in several companies around the Cleveland area, including Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling, where they’ve won the CAPW Tag Team Titles, and as of October 8th, will have held the titles for a year! Their latest title defense came against former 2-time IWC Tag Team Champions Southern Comfort, and they came out victorious! Faith In Nothing’s fantastic in-ring chemistry and double-team maneuvers have brought them success, which led to a successful recent trip to Philadelphia, competing in the famed New Alhambra Arena, formerly the ECW Arena. Their opponents at Revengance 4! on October 13th are former IWC Tag Team Champions Facade & Gargano! Michael Facade debuted for IWC just one year ago and in the past year has become one of the hottest young stars in IWC. His partner, Johnny Gargano, comes from a similar background as their opponents. A stand-out in the Cleveland-area wrestling scene, Gargano came to IWC with a reputation that preceeded him. On his debut, Gargano & Facade shocked the world when they defeated The Cleveland Mafia for the IWC Tag Team Titles at the tail end of a gauntlet match at Super Indy VI. With Facade & Gargano looking to get back into the title hunt, and Faith In Nothing wanting to make an impact on their IWC debut, this match will be sure to rock Court Time Sports Center!
PLUS Bubba the Bulldog has demanded to be added to the show for the company he claims to have built! Will anybody step up to the plate when one of IWC’s founding fathers crashes the party?!
And all the fun and surprises you’ve come to expect from IWC!!!
