CZW presented “A Tangled Web 3” last night at the ECW Arena
The evening started with the.”Opportunity Knocks” match with Joe Ettell vs. Eric Enders…which pretty muich turned out to be a backdrop for Nick Gage to storm the ring and make blocking dummies out of the two, then showed people the belt, only to be followed by Egotistico Fantastico bitching about not getitng a one-on-one title shot, demands one tright now with Gage, to be followed by Jon Moxley…
So the show begins with a hot opener….a CZW World Title match between Nick Gage vs. Egotistico Fantastico vs. Jon Moxley, who then proceed to brawl all over the ECW Arena, with Moxley regaining his title after pinning Egotistico Fantastico. “This sets up Gage losing the title but never being pinned” and “Ego getting screwed again” (which looks like a possible heel turn for him)

The main event Tangled Web 3 was sick, twisted, psychotic violence….with a “Tangled Web” set up with one side of the ring with a side of the Cage of Death cage, one side a Caribbean spider web spread out on the side of a cage, then hung at an angle from the ring (and chained to hold from the roof), another side with glass partitions hanging like the spider web cage and the fourth with barbed wire tables. as DJ Hyde and Greg Excellent defeated the Switchblade Conspiracy of Sami Callihan and Joe Gacy, with Greg Excellent taking the pinfall on Callihan. DJ Hyde took a scary bump off of a ladder, through the side of the cage with glass partitions and through a barbed wire table on the floor. To get an idea of the set up, photos from the pre-show dry -run set up can be seen at this link.
Post-match, in an out of the blue turn, Chainsaw Joe Gacy turned on Sami Callihan.
CZW returns to the ECW Arena for the Chris Cash Memorial Show on Friday, September 10 (note the date).
