I have been out of town this past weekend at an anime convention, and I just barley heard about all of this ROW non-sense. I tried asking Tony Estep (who works at ROW as a referee), Dameon Blood (ROW Talent), and “Stitch” Poole (Helps me with sound and was talking to Dave Ryder at the time), but no-one seems to have heard anything. But, as soon as I got in town today, I checked Chris Youngblood’s (Romero) Facebook (www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000709910701) face, and saw this post, and I thought I should pass it along to you guys:

“The ROW cancellation on 6/11/11 was due to the 6th. st. block party not at the mercy of me, Im currently on vacation whether to return to ROW is a big question but it will continue with or without me. Im sorry I havent contacted everyone on the situation but will contact you soon. I always will love all the wrestlers and fans of ROW and you can never say never in the wrestling biz-on a much needed vacation!”

I hope this will clear some things on this whole ROW situation. I will let you guys know anything if it pops up.

Elgin’s contract Accepted! Full Card Announced! HUGE NEWS!
We are under a week away from C*4’s biggest event ever – “Crossing the Line 4”. Coming to you this Friday, June 17th, 2011, will be undoubtedly the most loaded event in C*4 history.

As already announced, you will see C*4 Champion, Stupefied defend against his long time partner, and best friend, Player Uno. You will see the odd-couple tag team of “Mr. Wrestling’ Kevin Steen & “Speedball” Mike Bailey take on the ROH World Champion, Eddie Edwards, and the “best in the world” Davey Richards. You will see El Generico join forces with the Wolfmun, Twiggy and Beef Wellington, against the faction of Michael Von Payton, Rahim Ali, and Josh Alexander…. Well, this Friday’s event is about to get even bigger.

It was announced last week that Michael Elgin’s opponent, Tyson Dux could no longer compete on this Friday’s event. An open challenge was made by Elgin to anyone and everybody, who wanted to step-up.

Well, somebody has stepped up.

C*4 is very excited to announced, that this Friday night, June 17th, “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin, will face off with one-half of the “Kings of Wrestling”… “That Young Knock-out Kid”…. Chris Hero.

Hero is a veteran and world-class competitor like few others. Has Elgin signed on for more than he bargained for? Or will Hero’s C*4 debut be not what he had hoped for.

Open Contract
“Unbreakable” Michael Elgin
Vs.
“That Young Knockout Kid” Chris Hero

Next, a slight change to the card…
Originally announced, Mathieu St. Jacques will no longer be competing in the fatal-four-way along side “Hacker” Scotty O’shea, Sebastian Suave, and Brent B.

In his place will be C*4 favourite – “Psycho” Mike Rollins.

Things will get out of hand!

Fatal Fourway
“Hacker” Scotty O’Shea
Vs.
“Psycho” Mike Rollins
Vs.
“The Allstarter” Brent B
Vs.
Sebastian Suave

With St. Jacques out of the four-way, he will now be participating in a singles match up.

St. Jacques has proven himself to be an very talented performer, and has been certainly turning plenty of heads this season.

This Friday night, St. Jacques will face off with a man who has been turning heads on an international scale.

Making his debut on Friday night, C*4 is pleased to welcome the debuting Adam Cole!

Cole is the current CZW Junior Heavyweight Champion, and is regular in Ring of Honor. Cole has proven himself time and time again over his short career, and has stolen many a show, performing in ROH, CZW, Dragon Gate: USA, and Evolve.
This match could steal the show….

Singles Showdown
Mathieu St. Jacques
Vs.
Adam Cole

Lastly, we have two more debuts set to round out the participants of the “Six Way Mayhem” match, featuring the already announced Jae Rukin, Jagged, Lucky Sabiti, and Cecil Nyx.

Making their debuts, are two men who are as well known for teaming with each other, as they are facing against each other. C*4 is happy to welcome Lionel Knight, and Christopher Bishop – collectively known as Checkmate, to the roster.

Lionel and Bishop are both best known for their times in UWA Hardcore, and the IWS promotions. Both men are technically gifted, and two of Ontario’s best junior heavyweights.

Both are certainly looking to impress, and pick up a big victory.

Six-Way Mayhem
Jae Rukin
Vs.
“Jagged” Scott Parker
Vs.
Lucky Sabiti
Vs.
Cecil Nyx

Lionel Knight
Vs.
