– Posted 11/30/10:
AKUMA added to Cage of Death’s BEST OF THE BEST scramble!
Late last week, CZWrestling.com brought you the first entrants into the huge BEST OF THE BEST Open Qualifier match at December 11th’s Cage of Death event. Since that announcement, CZW management has received numerous requests from wrestlers all over the world, hoping for their opportunity to make an impact at the South Philadelphia’s biggest wrestling show of the year. Early this afternoon, CZWrestling.com has learned of the next competitor who has been granted access to the contest…
Fresh off his impressive debut victory at November’s NIGHT OF INFAMY (available soon at SmartMarkVideo.com), the warrior AKUMA has been granted his request, and will be the 4th entry into the BOTB qualifier. The imposing bully made quite the impression with CZW fans in November, and appears determined to make a bigger impact on December 11th, where he will look to be the first man to qualify for the 2011 BEST OF THE BEST Tournament! Can the Warrior add another victim(s) to his list? We’ll find out in less than 2 weeks at CAGE OF DEATH!

What a Difference a Year Makes
It seemed like only yesterday as we saw SAMI CALLIHAN & THE SWITCHBLADE CONSPIRACY carve a path of devastation through the Combat Zone. This time last year, the CZW fans wanted Callihan’s head on a platter after the kidnapping & attempted murder of Danny Havoc. Rivers of crimson ran down the bodies of both competitors & pooled up on the canvas at Cage of Death XI. Callihan emerged victorious & the winds of change began to blow that night. A rabid CZW Arena audience stood in unison & applauded the most deranged individual to ever wage war in CZW. The fan support steadily increased month after month no matter what Sami did; not even attempting to end the careers of Greg Excellent & even OUR BOSS, DJ Hyde, was enough to turn the fans against him. Sami has gone from one of the most loathed combatants in the Combat Zone to a fan favorite in a year & has made it known that he has his sights set on the CZW World Heavyweight Title.
It seemed like only yesterday as we saw EGOTISTICO FANTASTICO begin a quest to capture the CZW World Heavyweight Championship. Despite coming up short at Cage of Death XI in a 4 Way for the #1 Contendership against current champion Jon Moxley, Eddie Kingston, & B-Boy, Ego pressed on. Defeating former champion after former champion, championship gold seemed to be in sight until a series of title exchanges between Nick Gage & Moxley. It was this exchange that turned the CZW fans against Ego. A sense of self entitlement was brought out, the likes of which nobody expected. The once fan favorite turned into a bitter individual who was booed mercilessly by the CZW fans & became a nuisance to management. Egotistico Fantastico is gone; in his place stands “THE EGO” ROBERT ANTHONY, an arrogant individual who appears to be ready to do what it takes to capture the Combat Zone’s top prize.
Two men on a mission met in a violent encounter last month at NIGHT OF INFAMY: BETRAYAL. A wild brawl that saw not only both men beat the holy Hell out of each other, but saw CZW Commissioner Maven Bentley become a victim or Robert Anthony’s ire, broke out in the CZW Arena. Every action has a reaction, & Mr. Bentley made the match official for CAGE OF DEATH XII. Two runaway trains will collide in a match for the #1 Contendership for the CZW World Heavyweight Championship. Robert Anthony has shown that he is willing to do whatever it takes as of late to get what he wants. But we all know of the unmatched and even deranged ruthlessness Callihan possesses & unleashes to destroy opponents and win championships.
It’s going to be hard hitting. It’s going to be ruthless. It’s going to be violent. And it’s quite possible someone will go home for the holidays in a bodybag after the dust clears. It all goes down at CAGE OF DEATH XII on Saturday, December 11!!! BE THERE!!!

– Toys For Tots Campaign at Cage Of Death
For six years, Roger Artigiani and his Asylum Arena staff, in conjunction with Combat Zone Wrestling will continue the tradition of working with the US Marine Corps. to bring the Toys for Tots collection back to the Asylum Arena in December.
Joining the Asylum Arena and Combat Zone Wrestling this year will be Jersey All Pro Wrestling. CZW & JAPW will be teaming up on December 11th to present “SUPER SATURDAY” at the Asylum Arena. JAPW’s Anniversary event will begin at 4:00pm, while CZW’s Cage of Death event will begin at 7:30pm. Toys for Tots Collections will be done before BOTH events that day.
We ask that you please bring an unwrapped toy to the Asylum Arena if you are attending one of the two events and donate it to the Toys for Tots program, who will have collection bins at the entrance of the Arena.
The mission & goal of the Toys for Tots program is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community. Though a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope is delivered to less fortunate children that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
No matter what event you are attending that day, we again, ask you to please donate an unwrapped toy and help an unfortunate child to have a happy Christmas this year. If you aren’t able to attend Super Saturday, there will be other events in the area that will assist with the Toys for Tots collections.
Please head over to the Toys for Tots Foundation website, as they have information about their foundation as well as other collections all over the country. Select the state that you live in, and find a location where you can drop-off a toy for an unfortunate child this year. Whether you’re attending Super Saturday or not, this is a great opportunity to help those in need.
