The Ballance Sheet #7 : A Year In Review (2013)

bb

Wrapping up the year soon, folks, so I think a few words are in order about what’s gone down in 2013…

FAVOURITE MATCHES

Had two favourites this year: with ‘Fabulous’ Nicky at CCW Revolution, back in May, and with Stevie Xavier, at WrestleZone’s Aberdeen Anarchy show in June. Two great guys, two incredibly enjoyable matches, and two amazing crowds. Definitely hope I get the chance to work with both guys again, down the line.

My other more enjoyable matches this year were with Jordan Devlin, Bam Katraz, and BT Gunn, amongst others. It’s been a good year, and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some superb talent, and in front of some great audiences. Continue reading

CCW blows the roof off with St. Paddy’s Day Massacre

Celtic Championship Wrestling returned to Cork with a bang on Sunday night. To kick off the show, we were introduced to the new CCW Commissioner, Luke Barry. Barry was quick to declare that he was here to “bring CCW to the next level.” He then revealed the first CCW Champion will be crowned, via an eight-man tournament, at Revolution on May 5th. Lone Wolf then came out and interrupted the new Commissioner, stating his case for being entered in the tournament. This led to the creation of the night’s main event, where Lone Wolf would have to fight Big Bad Hynesie in a street fight, which he had to win to get into the tournament.
