Last Man Standing – Career vs. Career:
–IWC World Heavyweight Champion “DeeeeeeLicious” Jimmy DeMarco vs. “Big League” John McChesney
These two former best friends will finally put things to rest on November 20th! IWC WOrld Heavyweight Champion “DeeeeLicious” Jimmy DeMarco will put his title on the line against “Big League” John McChesney! Back in April, after DeMarco defeated Ray Rowe, McChesney emerged through the crowd following a brief absense from IWC. He proceeded to kick the IWC Championship belt into DeMarco’s face, rechristening himself from “Fabulous” to “Big League”. At Super Indy IX, DeMarco got his chance for revenge, but it didn’t quite work out for him. With the referee distracted, McChesney introduced a foreign object. DeMarco got his hands on it, but it was just as the referee turned around, and Jimmy D was disqualified. Afterwards, once again DeMarco was laid out by McChesney with the help of his hired assassin Jon Bolen. Caged Fury saw DeMarco lead a team against McChesney’s team. DeMarco was eliminated by McChesney from the War Games cage match following possibly the most brutal and bloody chair shot in IWC history. With the bad blood between the two men, IWC Director of Wrestling Operations Bubba the Bulldog signed a Last Man Standing match between the two men… with each man’s career on the line!

IWC Super Indy Title Match:
–IWC Super Indy Champion Shiima Xion defends against ROH World Champion Roderick Strong
For the first time ever, the IWC Super Indy Champion will take on the Ring of Honor World Champion, one-on-one, in an IWC ring! Super Indy Champion Shiima Xion will be taking on ROH World Champion Roderick Strong as Strong makes his IWC debut on November 20th! Many people, including staff here at, were mistaken in thinking Super Hentai would receive his shot at Xion’s title on November 20th after bodyslamming the 350+ lb. Shane Taylor at College Fight Fest: Volume 1. But according to Shiima, he wont be earning a Super Indy Title shot JUST for slamming his bodyguard Taylor. Hentai will have to pass yet another unnamed test before he gets his hands on the “Filipino Flex Factory”. Instead, Shiima will take on Roderick Strong! The “Messiah of the Backbreaker” started his career in Florida after being trained by Jim Neidhard. Since then, he has been all across the globe, including for ROH, PWG, NWA, IWA Mid-South, FIP, the Dragon Gate promotion in Japan, and holds the distinction of being involved in the very first match of TNA Impact on Spike TV. He’s a former ROH , FIP, and PWG Tag Team Champion, FIP Heavyweight Champion, ROH Survival of the Fittest winner, and fulfilled his quest to become ROH World Champion on September 11th 2010 by defeating Tyler Black in New York City. He’s had memorable battles with the likes of Bryan Danielson, Jamie Noble, Austin Aries, Davey Richards, and more. Strong’s backbreakers and chops are some of the most devastating in wrestling today, and he uses the ring like a weapon better than most. Will the Super Indy Champion be able to withstand Strong and retain his title? Or will the Messiah of the Backbreaker become the brand new Super Indy Champion?

IWC Tag Team Title 2 out of 3 Falls Match:
–IWC Tag Team Champions Flippin’ Ain’t Easy vs. Aeroform
One of the best matches in the IWC 2010 calendar year has been IWC Tag Team Champions Flippin’ Ain’t Easy defending the titles against Flip Kendrick & Louis Lyndon at Caged Fury 2010. Aeroform were making the debut as a team in IWC, and were on a mission to prove they deserved the IWC Tag Team Titles. And prove it they did. Several times, they came within inches of becoming the new champions. But Jason Gory & Michael Facade proved themselves to be the better men on that night with their finisher, the Buddy Moonsault. Flippin’ Ain’t Easy has since defended their titles against four top teams in Los Dagos, Up In Smoke, and Greg Iron & Nicki Valentino, all in one match. With that challenge behind them, they look forward and see Kendrick & Lyndon one more time… but this time, IWC Director of Wrestling Operations Bubba the Bulldog has deemed the match Best 2 out of 3 Falls! For Gory & Facade to retain the titles, or Kendrick & Lyndon to win the titles, they must defeat the other team not once, but twice in the same match! With their incredible performance but disappointing ending behind them at Caged Fury, will Aeroform be able to beat the champions? Or will Flippin’ Ain’t East retain once again against another top team in an impossible situation?

Strap Match:
–Justin Idol vs. Eric Lee Schwab w/ Chest Flexor
This will be the final battle between Eric Lee Schwab and Justin Idol! It was just six months ago when Eric Xtasy seemed to be making his retirement from professional wrestling at CCAC South Campus, where he won the IWC Heavyweight Championship in 2004. After suffering a serious head injury in January, Xtasy took some time off to reflect on things. His partner Justin Idol had reached the finals of Super Indy VIII in 2009 after both men had captured the IWC Tag Team Titles twice as Sexual Harassment. They had failed to recapture the titles from then-champions Irish Airborne. So when Idol came out during Eric’s speech at CCAC in April, nobody expected Eric to spear Idol out of his boots, and drop him on his head. Nobody also expected Eric to announce himself under his real name, Eric Lee Schwab. Nobody expected him to embrace a wholesome, Christian lifestyle. Certainly, nobody expected him to emerge at Super Indy IX to interrupt Idol’s match with Colin Delaney. Alongside his new business advisor Chest Flexor, Schwab threatened IWC with an ironic sexual harassment suit unless he was inserted into the match. But, Idol refused to attack Eric, believing this new attitude to be the result of the serious head trauma suffered in January. This continued until Clearfield Cataclysm 3 in July, when Eric demanded a cage match with Idol at Caged Fury 2010. When Idol refused, Eric took matters into his own hands. He snatched Idol’s girlfriend, Chrystin, and threatened her with a DDT unless Idol accepted. Despite Idol accepting the match, Eric DDT’d her anyways. When Caged Fury came along, Idol finally vented his frustrations and defeated Schwab inside the cage, but the war was still not over. Chest Flexor climbed the cage and handcuffed Idol to the cage, allowing Eric to whip him with a leather strap. When IWC came through Clearfield again in September, the two men met once more, with Flexor at ringside in a cage, and the stipulation that if Idol won, he’d get Flexor alone for 5 minutes. Idol did just that, and only used 2 of his 5 minutes to take Flexor out. Now, they will face off one final time after battling for the last six months, but this time in IWC’s first ever strap match!

IWC World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contender Match:
–Dean Radford vs. Dennis Gregory
On August 21st, 2010, Dean Radford walked out on his match with Brandon Day. In doing so, he lost the man advantage for the War Games match later in the night for the team of Jimmy DeMarco, Larry Sweeney, and Dennis Gregory. Soon after, he announced that he was in business for himself now, looking out for only Dean Radford. Gregory offered him another chance to redeem himself as a member of Team War Machine at College Fight Fest: Volume 1 in September. Radford used that chance to walk out on his team and leave them stranded against Team Big League. Dean wants back on top of IWC, is this repayment from McChesney through IWC’s Director of Wrestling Operations Bubba the Bulldog? Is the only 5-time IWC World Heavyweight Champion the only man to stop him?

Stipulation To Be Named That Night:
–Irish Airborne vs. Los Dagos
IWC Director of Wrestling Operations Bubba the Bulldog has decided to sign a match between Los Dagos and former IWC Tag Team Champions Irish Airborne at Winner Takes All on November 20th. Bubba told after Caged Fury that he would prove to the world that Los Dagos are really the fire Gambino Brothers masquarading under masks. Although Los Dagos (and their translator Jimmy DeMarco) have denied the claims, they seem to have been a thorn in the side of Bubba, including “escorting” him from ringside at Caged Fury when Bubba refused to leave! Bubba has been outspoken about his dislike of Los Dagos, so why would he sign a match with the Airborne on 11/20? He has also claimed he will announce a stipulation that night for the tag team attraction. What does Bubba have up his sleeve?

Shiima Xion’s “Final Trial” For Super Hentai:
–Super Hentai vs. ???
After coming within inches of winning the IWC Super Indy Championship for a third time at Caged Fury, only to be thwarted by Shane Taylor, Super Hentai would like nothing better than to get one more shot at Shiimx Xion. However, as the Super Indy Champion, Shiima hold all the cards and has agreed to a return match… but only AFTER Super Hentai passes the “Shiima Xion Trials”. Step One was to defeat Shane Taylor in a Body Slam match at College Fight Fest: Volume 1 in California, PA. Against all odds and despite his 250 lb. weight disadvantage, Hentai was able to scoop up the “Girthquake” and pass the first test. Now, Shiima is calling the second test his final one! What could the Filipino Flex Factory have in mind for Hentai? What odds will he have to surpass to get his hands on Xion and another chance at Super Indy glory?

–Logan Shulo vs. Matt Justice
On November 20th, 2010, “The Frontman” Logan Shulo will be taking on Matt Justice at Winner Takes All! Justice has recently been making waves on IWC live events in Clearfield and California, PA, even capturing a shot at the IWC Super Indy Title at a Clearfield event in the future! This is much to the dismay of the outspoken Shulo, who was unsuccessful in his attempt to win the Super Indy Championship earlier this year. These two men met at College Fight Fest: Volume 1 at California University of PA back in September. That night saw Justice pick up the win with his never-say-die attitude and thrillseeking in-ring style. Now the two men will meet once again, but this time at IWC’s final Supercard of 2010, Winner Takes All! Will Justice be able to get another win over Shulo on the bigger stage of IWC’s home venue, Court Time Sports Center? Or can Shulo use this victory over Justice to solidify himself as one of the top young stars in IWC?

Iron City Wrestling Academy Graduates Collide:
–Tyler Stone vs. “Feature Presentation” David R. DiMera
College Fight Fest: Volume 1 in September saw the official debut of IWC’s first male graduate of the Iron City Wrestling Academy, Tyler Stone. After what was scheduled to be his first match in Clearfield was declared a no-contest when Dean Radford interfered and destroyed Stone and his opponent Cingsley, Stone was given another opportunity for one week later in California, PA. The street punk turned underground bareknuckle fighter met Marker “Connected” Dillinger from the ROH Wrestling Academy and was able to defeat him in his debut. Now, he’ll be facing off with a young man from the same training school as himself, “The Feature Presentation” David R. DiMera! DiMera longs for Hollywood superstardom, and sees the bright lights of professional wrestling as nothing more than a means to attain that stardom. His first stop is IWC’s final Supercard of the year, Winner Takes All on November 20th in Elizabeth, PA!

This week on In the Room, former CZW (and current ECWA and TWA) tag team champions Bruce Mazwell and TJ Cannon — The Best Around — hop on for a special edition of the show. Plus, Brady Hicks and DJ check in with their thoughts on Retro Raw, Survivor Series, and Jeff Hardy’s new TNA title belt. Check it out at

On Independent, Tag Team Wrestling
To be honest with you, on the independent scene, there are more great teams than anywhere else. Any time we get to wrestle a great tag team, you do have a challenge there. The independent scene is full of young, hungry guys that are looking to make their mark.

On Young and Up-and-Coming Teams, Such as The Logans:
We’ve seen and heard a lot about The Logans, but we’ve never actually competed with them until we got to the TWA. We were excited to get in the ring with them.

On Wrestling for the ECWA:
We’ve had our eyes on the ECWA for a long time. When we were younger, we used to read all about the [Super 8] tournaments in PWI.

On the Art of Tag Team Wrestling:
There are a lot of things we do to compliment each other. People are just going to have to buy a ticket and enjoy the ride. Wherever we’ve been, we’ve had success on our first time out. There’s always something out there to strive for.

11/17- CWE Returns to Winnipeg Nov 27th.

Canadian Wrestling’s Elite returns to Winnipeg on Saturday Nov 27th with a star studded and stacked line up! After a successful debut at the Vince Leah Community Center in October CWE is back for yet another action packed night for the final show of the year at Vince Leah!

Already signed for next Saturday night,

CWE Title Match
CWE Champion Mentallo vs. Former champion AJ Sanchez vs. Former champion “Hotshot” Danny Duggan

Canadian Wrestling’s Elite is closing out the year with perhaps the biggest main event to take place in 2010. The only three men to ever hold the CWE title will do battle in a three way dance! Back in September “Hotshot” Danny Duggan dethroned the first ever champion AJ Sanchez in a very violent match. Just seconds after the victory Mentallo cashed in his contract for any match any time and defeated Duggan to capture the title ending Duggan’s reign in just a matter of minutes.

Mentallo’s questionable tactics were called into play and after Mentallo gave his side of the story agreed to be an honorable champion and defend the title against Duggan Nov. 27th. Later that night Mentallo had his first defense again former champion AJ Sanchez which ended in a no contest and complete chaos after Sanchez went to use the title as a weapon and Duggan intervened. As Duggan went to hit Sanchez with the title, Sanchez ducked causing Duggan to accidentally hit Mentallo with the title. From there all hell broke loose and the locker room had to be emptied to keep the 3 men away from each other.

Mentallo vs. Duggan quickly became a three way dance as Sanchez’s mandatory rematch ended in a no contest due to the outside interference. Now the 3 most accomplished stars in CWE’s 2 year history will do battle for the CWE championship. With so much history and so many factors coming into play being a 3 way dance this will be one unpredictable and unforgettable main event!

2 Time ROH World Champion Austin Aries vs. ROH Star & IWGP Jr. Tag Team champion Kenny Omega

CWE is not only presenting perhaps its biggest main event of the year but perhaps one of the biggest matches to ever take place inside a CWE ring! Two of the world’s most respected and accomplished independent wrestlers will do battle inside a CWE ring when “A Double” Austin Aries returns to CWE to wrestle Kenny Omega.

These two are no strangers to each other as they have produced some classics inside an ROH ring. With Austin Aries no longer with Ring of Honor this match is one you will be hard pressed to see again anywhere else in the foreseeable future. Austin Aries has the distinct honor of being the only 2 time ROH World champion in the history of the promotion and recently moved on to Dragon Gate USA and EVOLVE where success is sure to follow. Kenny Omega has been having a very successful year as well not only capturing the CWE Tag Team titles earlier this year but most recently the IWGP Jr. Tag Tag Titles. This is a match no wrestling fan in the Winnipeg area will want to miss live!

Ax and Smash are coming to CWE! The longest reigning WWF Tag Team champions of all time are on their way to Winnipeg! They were scheduled to appear together back in January but after a car accident prevented Ax from appearing his partner Smash vowed they would return. That return is on Nov. 27th! Stay posted for news concerning their opponents!

Also scheduled to appear, The Strip N Dales, “Prime Cut” Jon Cutler, CWE Tag Team champions JJ Sanchez & “Big” Cliff Corleone, 123Approved Open Rules champion “Pimp Daddy” Rick Matthews, Team Impact, Antonio Scorpio Jr. “Canadian Loose Cannon” TJ Bratt and many more CWE stars!
