CZW TWELVE Results; Returns March 12; Best of The Best April 9
CZW “TWELVE: The Twelfth Anniversary Event” on Saturday, February
12 delivered action to a packed Asylum Arena and showed the
Ultraviolence is going strong as CZW begins its thirteenth year and
gears up for Best of The Best X on April 9.
The returning Australian, Ryan Eagles devastated Kit Osborne defeating
his smaller opponent with a brainbuster, followed by a DVD.
TJ Cannon and Bruce Maxwell, The Best Around may have walked out with
a victory over TJ and Kirby Mack of Team Macktion, but at the risk of
Cannon’s in-ring career. During the match, Cannon went for a 450 and
landed on his feet, when his knee buckled. Cannon is being told of a
possible SEVERE injury to his knee. More information as it develops.
Current CZW owner DJ Hyde made his way to the ring to thank the fans
for 12 years of Ultraviolent passion and introduced three more
competitors for this year’s Best of The Best – Jake Crist from
Indiana’s IPW, Kyle O’Reilly from ROH, and PWG’s Brandon Gatson.
Hyde also had some words about a no-showing B-Boy, but was interrupted
by “The Golden Boy” Drake Younger.
Younger demanded to be declared winner over B-Boy by forfeit and named
#1 contender to the CZW World Heavyweight Title. Before DJ Hyde could
respond, Devon Moore entered the fray stating he won Cage of Death and
earned a title shot. The CZW Owner ordered a Younger vs. Moore match
to take place with Ultraviolent Rules!
Younger and Moore destroyed each other in a match that saw plenty of
chairs, a barbwire board, and a glass window pane! In the end, it was
Devon Moore standing victorious over “The Golden Boy”.
After last month’s victory for Sami Callihan’s Best of the Best
spot, this month Alex Colon had to defend his prize against “The New
Horror”. But in Colon’s most impressive match yet, he fell short
and lost his qualifying spot after tapping out to Callihan’s Stretch
Muffler. Afterwards Callihan announced he would represent CZW next
month at wXw’s 12 Carat Gold Tournament in Germany…already winning
The Peterson Cup, he could now win wXw’s 12 Carat and CZW’s Best
of The Best.
Disagreeing over Wired TV champion Drew Gulak’s recent
“display”, Danny Havok challenged Gulak for the title. But Gulak
displayed his technical prowess and caught Havok with a crucifix
rollup for the pin to retain his title.
Akuma has been destroying all comers in CZW. With the mysterious
Kimber Lee in his corner, this time he faced Naptown Dragon, Scotty
Vortekz. These two went toe-to-toe, but when former Dragon, Drake
Younger, interjected himself, it was enough of a distraction for Akuma
to catch Vortekz off guard to earn a victory.
In a six way The Best of The Best qualifier, Rich Swann, A.R. Fox,
Aaron Arbo, Jon Gresham, Ryan McBride, and Ty Hagen tore the house
down, until The Runaways, Joe Gacy and Ryan Slater, jumped the rails
and began destroying everyone. Unexpectedly, the viral sensations, The
Osirian Portal made an appearance, first via video, entrancing the
entire Arena, then made their way to the ring for what would make
their G4 and ESPN appearances look like a warm-up for the dance battle
that occurred. In the midst of it all, Gresham was able to pull out a
victory and earned himself a spot for Best of The Best!
To say Greg Excellent didn’t have kind words for DJ Hyde last month
would be an understatement, causing the CZW owner to set a match
between himself and his employee. But when the bell rung, Excellent
just lied down for Hyde. Excellent ignored Hyde’s attempts to fight
and rolled out of the ring creating a verbal shoot between the two.
Hyde has set an Ultraviolent Rules match between himself and Excellent
for next month and if Excellent tries to walk out, he is fired.
In another Best of The Best qualifier, CZW Junior Heavyweight champion
Adam Cole, believing himself already “Best of The Best in CZW”,
had to face a mystery opponent…in Pinkie Sanchez. After innovative
offense between the two, it was Cole’s beautiful escort, Mia Yim,
with a low blow to Sanchez that allowed Cole to capitalize and qualify
for The Best of The Best.
For the CZW World Heavyweight title, “The Ego” Robert Anthony
challenged champion Jon Moxley. The rivalry exploded between these two
that even the ring couldn’t contain and saw both men pull out all
the stops for the right to wear the gold, in the end, it was a
reversal out of a Vertebreaker for Anthony that gave him the win to
become the NEW CZW World Heavyweight champion.
Last month, CZW World Tag champions Philadelphia’s Most Wanted,
Joker and Sabian and The Briscoe Brothers tore down the house. All
four men battled around the ring and through the crowd using anything
they could get their hands on, including a barbed wire table on the
floor that Sabian was sent through over the top rope…giving The
Briscoe Brothers the victory to be the NEW CZW World Tag Team
