[NEWS] COLIN OLSEN RETURNS FROM ECW TOMORROW!!!! We have learned that YES despite injuries over the past few weeks at the hands of Shelton Benjamin, Big Daddy V, and Mark Henry in ECW, Rochester’s very own Colin Olsen will be in the house at NWA Upstate’s Wrestlebowl ’08 tomorrow night. After seeing his performances over the past few weeks, one has wonder if Colin Olsen is really in any condition to step in the ring with “The Havana Pitbull” Ricky Reyes. Of all the challenges Olsen has faced recently, returning to Upstate and attempting to bounce back from losing to ex-ECW star Danny Doring at Holiday Hangover and head back to ECW this Tuesday with a win may be exactly what he needs to jumpstart his success. Will Ricky Reyes be able to stop the momentum of Colin before he has the chance to get started? Or will this be the last hometown appearance for the younger Olsen Twin before officially becoming the next breakout ECW superstar?
