Dan Cohey sent this report in:
CZW kicked off 2011 last night with “From Small Beginnings Comes Great Things.” The night marked the in ring return of the Briscoe Brothers to the Combat Zone. We were treated to major “Best Of The Best X” and “Tournament of Death X” announcements. But not everything was good news, as we saw Greg Excellent get into the face of the owner of CZW, DJ Hyde. Adam Cole continued to embarrass his former best friend. And of course, Drew Gulak had to make fun of the misfortune of a CZW Original!
“From Small Beginnings Come Great Things” Quick Results:
NILES YOUNG w/CHRISSY RIVERA defeated KIT OSBORNE
DANNY HAVOC kicked off the event asking that CZW owner, DJ HYDE, to give him a match with one of the top deathmatch wrestlers in the world today, JUN KASAI. Before Hyde can respond, The “Golden Boy” himself DRAKE YOUNGER showed up to use his creative control and said that it will be Younger who will be facing Kasai this SPRING. Hyde let Younger know that it will not only be Havoc facing Jun Kasai…but that Younger will face Kasai at wXw in a NO ROPES BARBED WIRE MATCH when wXw returns to Philadelphia this SPRING. Younger had another surprise, after first being reminded of losing the CZW Title, DJ Hyde stated he will be facing the “New Age Punisher” B-BOY on February 12th at the 12th Anniversary Event! Hyde also announced to Havoc he will represent CZW at Big Japan this coming Spring!
1. AR FOX defeated the returning ORANGE CASSIDY
2. “THE WARRIOR” AKUMA w/KIMBERLY defeated JONATHAN GRESHAM

DJ HYDE announced some names for BEST OF THE BEST in April & TOURNAMENT OF DEATH on Sat. June 25.

– Representing DRAGON GATE USA will be JOHNNY GARGANO.
TOURNAMENT OF DEATH:
– Representing BIG JAPAN PRO WRESTLING will be JAKI NUWAZAWA and ASHITI ZAKATA.
The boss then addressed GREG EXCELLENT regarding Greg delivering the Tiger Driver to his own mother at Cage of Death. In a verbal lashing that must be heard to be believed, Greg tore the boss apart. After the tongue lashing, Hyde issued the challenge for the 12th Anniversary Event!
4. ALEX COLON defeated “THE NEW HORROR” SAMI CALLIHAN. With the victory, Alex Colon has taken Sami Callihan’s spot in “Best of the Best X”.
5. THE RUNAWAYS defeated IRISH DRIVEBY. Post match, the Runaways DESTROYED tHURTeen & were promptly suspended by CZW Promoter, MAVEN BENTLEY.
6. ADAM COLE w/MIA YIM defeated RUCKUS to retain the CZW World Junior Heavyweight Championship in an Open Challenge Match. After the match, Cole called out TYLER VERITAS, who was on guest commentary, and said he is nothing but someone playing wrestler so he can tell his friends at his day job he is a wrestler. Cole then insults his girlfriend and Veritas’ unborn son! Cole and Veritas tussle back and forth, but Veritas was dropped with Cole’s NEW Reverse DDT finisher.
After intermission, DEWEY DONOVAN made his way to the ring simply stating “He’s here”. “For Whom the Bell Tolls” blasted in the arena as who we thought was NICK GAGE came from the back. Later to be revealed as DREW GULAK impersonating the King of Ultraviolence & making a mockery of a serious situation, fans showered the TV Champion with trash and the ENTIRE SOUTH SIDE of the Arena turned their backs to Drew & his new manager, “Full Price” David Donovan.
7. PHILLY’S MOST WANTED retained the CZW World Tag Team Championship against THE BRISCOE BROTHERS when the match went to a no contest after The Blk Jeez assaulted the referee and PMW took their belts and left. However, the Bricoes made it clear that they are return to the Combat Zone on February 12th to challenge for the CZW World Tag Team Championship, but this time it will be different… It will be a NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH!
8. JON MOXLEY defeated BRODIE LEE to retain the CZW World Heavyweight Championship and sending Lee through a thumbtack-filled table!
