Today in Memoriam: Adam Marks (21, 2006).
We have been reporting at GWH on the updated of Killer Kowalski, who suffered a heart attack and Friday and was not expected to make it through the night. However, he did, and we have been reporting updates on his status since shortly after distributing yesterday’s report, so we would be remiss if we didn’t add the good news of how he did and seemed to improve on Saturday within today’s report. He was taken off life support yesterday, and it is reported he was non-responsive at first, leading some websites to prematurely report his death, though word last night is he was making a comeback. We at GWH are pulling for the Kowalski family and friends.
We received word last week from Bobby Simmons that longtime Georgia referee Bill McMinn had been diagnosed with cancer. McMinn will undergo surgery on Wednesday. GWH asks that you keep Bill, as well as friends and family, in your thoughts and prayers.
Rich Tate from GWH will appear on August-based Mat Chat radio show this afternoon at 3:00 PM ET. Matt Crosby will also appear.

You can view the clip, where he chops up a mannequin dressed as Hogan, by clicking here. If you visit the Sickasso site, linked above, you can read the letter he left.

Main Event: Triple Threat Match for the NECW Triple Crown Championship "The Mohawked Enforcer" Max Bauer C vs. Big Rick Fuller vs. D.C. Dillinger
The main event may well be the biggest main event in company history as the three biggest men in NECW square off with the company's biggest prize on the line. NECW Triple Crown Champion, "The Mohawked Enforcer" Max Bauer battles both the man he defeated for the title, Big Rick Fuller and former champion, D.C. Dillinger. This will be an all out war between three giant-like competitors!
NECW Tag Team Championship: PRIDE C vs. "Rocket" Fred Curry, Jr. & a Mystery Partner
The new NECW Tag Team Champions, PRIDE (Dan Freitas & Brian Nunes) defend the titles in an unusual rematch against one half of the former champions, "The Rocket" Fred Curry, Jr. and a mystery partner. Curry, a third generation wrestler will be accompanied by his legendary father, former 60's & 70's star "Flying" Fred Curry. Everyone in NECW is wondering, could the elder Curry be coming out of retirement at BIRTHDAY BASH 8 to contend for the NECW Tag Team Championship?
NECW Television Championship: Handsome Johnny C with Sammi Lane vs. "The Real Deal" Brandon Locke
The NECW Television Championship will be on the line in a return grudge match. Champion, Handsome Johnny, with his sultry valet, Sammi Lane, puts the belt up against former champion, "The Real Deal" Brandon Locke. Last month, Locke and Johnny went to the time limit and two five minute overtimes before Johnny walked out, taking a countout loss. This time there will be an extended time limit as Locke tries to regain the coveted championship.
World Women's Wrestling Non-Title Feature Match: "The Portuguese Princess" Ariel C with Brendan Michael Thomas vs. Lexxus
In a World Women's Wrestling feature match, the current World Women's Wrestling Champion, "The Portuguese Princess" Ariel takes on former champion Lexxus in a non-title match with some unusual stipulations. If Ariel wins, Lexxus must win 10 straight WWW matches to get a shot at the title. If
Lexxus wins, she not only gets a title shot, but Ariel's agent, Brendan Michael Thomas will become her personal servant for 30 days!
Special Challenge Match: "Die Hard" Eddie Edwards vs. Jason Blade Also signed in a special challenge match, "Die Hard" Eddie Edwards makes his return to NECW after a successful tour of Europe to take on former PWF Heavyweight Champion, Jason Blade. There is no love lost between these two, who are among the most finely tunes athletes in NECW history. Look for a first class display of athletic prowess when the bell rings for this collision.
Special Challenge Match: "The Natural" Scott Osbourne vs. Makoto
In another special challenge match, "The Natural" Scott Osbourne, managed by Brian Cairo, arguably the hottest up and coming talent on the NECW roster, collides with the undefeated masked man from the Orient, Makoto. Both men have been on a hot streak in NECW, but only one will leave in a blaze in glory at BIRTHDAY BASH 8!
8 Man Survival Match: Team Nightmare vs. Richter, Matthews, Damon & Rumble

On the Wrestlelution DVD you will see…
Johnny Gargano and Gregory Iron wage a bloody and personal war in a “Last Man Standing” match. The privileged and genetically gifted Gargano attempts to end the career of the inspirational cerebral-palsy sufferer who pinned him cleanly ten months earlier, while the undersized success story Iron unleashes 21 years of pent-up hostility from an abusive childhood and life with a disability into one life-altering match. Watch as a vile and soulless display of violence leads to one of the most emotional and moving moments in independent professional wrestling in recent memory.
Six fearless athletes enter a hellacious and dangerous battleground as Irish Airborne’s Jake Crist joins forces with Faith in Nothing’s Vincent Nothing to defend their Tag Team Ladder Match legacies against Matthew Justice & “Bloody” Morty Rackem and Virus & Virus Grande in a chaotic three-team Ladder Match, where the winners will be crowned first-ever PWO Tag Team Champions! Bodies and ladders alike were contorted and ripped to shreds in a match so physical it defies description. All six men unleash brutality and barbarism rarely seen, as not even steel ladders were strong enough to handle the punishment these men unleashed on one another. This is without question, the encounter that stole the show, and with good reason.
Wrestling legends Greg “The Hammer” Valentine and King Kong Bundy make their PWO debuts, determined to show they can still hang with the young stars of today and tomorrow. Watch as The Hammer steps into the ring for one-on-one action, Bundy raises hell and controversy on the microphone, and each timeless legend has an unpleasant encounter with the amateur standout and self-proclaimed “hometown hero” Mike Tolar.
PWO’s two unstoppable forces meet one-on-one as the 6’8” 300+ pound locker room enforcer Jason Bane collides with the 6’3” 275 lb. “Indestructible” Cronus, with greedy agent Aaron Maguire by his side. It’s irresistible force vs. immovable object as two men who have been on a path of destruction since the company’s inception finally meet their match. If Cronus wins, he gets $5000 of Bane’s money, however if Bane is victorious, he receives 5 minutes in the ring with Aaron Maguire. Who is the Most Dominant Man in PWO? And will Bane finally get his hands on Aaron Maguire after months of Maguire challenging Bane’s toughness and courage?
And a ten year rivalry finally reaches its culmination as the love-hate relationship of “M-Dogg 20” Matt Cross and Josh Prohibition explodes into a one-on-one encounter for the ultimate prize: the winner becomes the first ever PWO Heavyweight Champion. Who would close the final chapter of this feud with victory and begin a new chapter lined with gold? Two icons of Cleveland wrestling in what may very well be their final battle against one another, for the highest stakes yet.
All this plus a special Woman’s open challenge, an 8-man elimination tag team match and… a Kiss My Butt match?
