The Ballance Sheet #9: Mid Term Report

Hope 2014’s been good to you, folks. My own is going pretty well, all told. Here’s a few bits and pieces on the last six months.

WEDDING CRASHERS
Well, technically we were invited, and it was actually at the very end of 2013, but I’ll include it here, anyway. My blog, after all… I wrestled at a wedding reception just after Christmas last year in the Radisson in Galway, working a singles match with Bam Katraz, and a tag match against him and Omen, where I teamed with Tucker. An interesting experience, and certainly the best-dressed audience I’ve ever worked for! The crowd- mostly non-wrestling fans (muggles)- were appreciative, though probably a little perplexed at the same time. It was after dinner, though, so I’d say a bit of the ol’ gargle helped matters.

Training basically allows you a bit more ring time than you’d be afforded on a show, and in a more relaxed setting. From a creative standpoint, I tend to find it more fulfilling.  Continue reading

Ballance Ready To Take Back His Title At Summerbrawl

gbIrish News Review columnist Gary “Bingo” Ballance will defend his title for the first time at Celtic Championship Wrestling’s upcoming Summerbrawl event at The Forum in Waterford when he faces Vic Viper on Saturday August 10th.

Ballance became the first ever CCW champion when he beat Nicky M in a semi final match before disposing of Irish Dragon, The Executioner and Vic Viper in a fatal four way final at CCW Revolution back in May. However having sealed the win Ballance didn’t leave the arena with the gold after Viper stole his title, setting up a grudge match at Summerbrawl. Continue reading
