For those who saw an Extreme Rules event that featured a
match where a title could be lost via DQ and a match where
the babyface was “too nice a person ” to use a kendo stick,
and are more into extreme wrestling…. Combat Zone
Wrestling counts down to its sixteenth annual Tournament of
Death on June 10 at the Ultraviolent Underground (aka
Markland’s Little Acres), 179 Ebenezer Church Road,
Townsend, DE with a 2:00 pm scheduled start time. 450
tickets have already been sold.
For directions, put 139 Ebenezer Church Road, Townsend, DE
in your phone, tablet, or GPS device. Note: the event is in
a rural area, so any water, sunscreen, and other supplies
need to be purchased beforehand. Food is available on
site (and typically pretty good, too.) Cellphone access is
also spotty at best.
Tournament of Death matches announced thus far:
Stipulations being announced soon, but in the first round:
– Pains in the Glass match

This is an outdoor event and is scheduled RAIN OR SHINE.
General Admission tickets are $25. Please plan to bring
water and sunscreen (although water, food and other items
will be sold onsite). This location is somewhat isolated
(think a deer stand on the property), so do not expect cell
reception to be any more than spotty at best.
Speaking of last night’s Extreme Rules, we saw an historic
moment of sorts. Someone actually got to win in their
hometown…for the first time in four years, being the first
WWE wrestler booked to win a match in their hometown since
CM Punk at Money In The Bank 13.
Not to mention seeing Samoa Joe go over in the main event.
So a former ROH World Champion (for 21 months) and TNA World
Champion will go up in a main event against Brock Lesnar, in
an actual marquee main event. Yes, unless reported plans
change…Lesnar is keeping the belt until next Wrestlemania
to drop it to Roman Reigns…but still, to see Joe get the
nod for the match…someone who seems to be everything WWE
didn’t want…too short, too old, a body that doesn’t look
like a Chernobyl steroid mutant from Hell, and too
identified with other companies…is a good thing to see.
Until next time…
