In all, 16 trios will compete across the three days, until just one is left standing.

CZWrestling.com Updates for 02/07/11: CZW Goes Viral, Updates on
TWELVE, CZW Bus Trip, and MORE!
CZW is just 5 days away from celebrating 12 YEAR OF ULTRAVIOLENCE!
With the entire world focused on CZW right now, CZW is planning to
bring you the VERY BEST THIS SATURDAY in SOUTH PHILADELPHIA!
– CZW Goes Viral!
CZW would like to take the time now to thank its loyal fanbase on
making CZW Footage the MOST WATCHED ON THE INTERNET! Early last month,
footage from the NIGHT OF INFAMY 9 DVD leaked onto the internet. The
footage? The semi-finals of the recent Tag Team Tournament, between
the OSIRIAN PORTAL and THE RUNAWAYS. Thanks to the Osirian Portal
hypnotizing The Runaways, Greg Excellent, Ty Hagen, Irish Driveby, and
others from the CZW Locker room, CZW has now reached MILLIONS of
people WORLDWIDE! This footage has been featured on G4’s Attack of the
Show on Thursday night’s program as well as ESPN’s Around The Horn on
Friday evening! Members of the ESPN team, Damon Lindelof of “LOST”
fame, and various popular websites like Break.com, HolyTaco, College
Humor, and many others took time to recognize the CZW product and
share it with the masses. If you haven’t seen the footage yet you can
view it on YouTube, which currently stands near 1.5 MILLION views, at
the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU4TDGlbTz8
. To see the match IN ITS ENTIRETY… Please support CZW more and
purchase the DVD at one of our GREAT distributors including Smart Mark
Video, RF Video, Highspots, wXw (Germany) Shop, or Big Japan Wrestling
With all the being said… At the last CZW Event in January, CZW
Promoter, MAVEN BENTLEY, officially SUSPENDED THE RUNAWAYS (Joe Gacy
and Ryan Slater) from the Combat Zone following their actions against
tHURTeen. Unfortunately for Maven Bentley, the Runaways have
practically become the face of CZW because of this viral video. Rumors
are now running rampant that Gacy and Slater are going to break
suspension and crash the party next week! What state of mind will
these two UNLIKELY internet sensations be in should they arrive to the
ASYLUM ARENA on SATURDAY FEBRUARY 12TH? Are they angry this video got
out there? We all will have to wait until next Saturday to find out.
– CZW on G4?
CZW has received thousands of emails about CZW footage that aired on
G4 TV’s Attack of the Show on Thursday evening. These emails have been
fans asking CZW why G4 TV is only showing clips and not a whole CZW
show and if G4 TV is planning on airing a CZW TV Show. For those fans,
CZW encourages you to ask that question of G4 TV and NBC Universal! G4
executives have discussed the possibility of airing CZW related
programming with CZW management in the past; however they are not
convinced that CZW can be a viable television property. For fans who
believe CZW should be on G4 TV, we encourage YOU to email them this
weekend referencing Attack of the Show and G4 Underground as shows you
enjoyed that featured CZW. G4 TV can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please use the subject line “WE WANT CZW ON G4!” Once again, the CZW
Family would like to thank you the fans for its continued support
through this very exciting period of time!
– Everyone’s Coming To The Party!
If you had signed up for the NEW CZW Text Messaging Service you would
have already heard the HUGE news that CZW Officials announced
WEDNESDAY NIGHT… The party on FEBRUARY 12TH just got better! CZW is
proud to announce THREE big returns to the Combat Zone.
First announced WEDNESDAY NIGHT via the CZW Text Messaging Service was
the RETURN of THE BEST AROUND (TJ Cannon and Bruce Maxwell)! This will
be the first time the duo has been in the Combat Zone since their
heartbreaking lose to The Osirian Portal in the Tag Team Title
Tournament at Tangled Web III this past August. The Best Around are
looking to get back on track at TWELVE and try to beat their own
record of being the LONGEST REIGNING CZW Tag Team Champions in history
which now stands at 13 Months. However, they will have to take on
another returning team to the Combat Zone… TEAM MACKTION (Kirby and
TJ Mack). Team Macktion is considered by some to be the fastest rising
Tag Team in wrestling today. Again, they are no strangers to the
Combat Zone. However the last time Team Macktion was in CZW, they also
suffered a heartbreaking lose to Irish Driveby in the Tag Team Title
Tournament at Down With The Sickness this past September. Both these
teams are looking to get back on track here in CZW. However, only one
team can win come FEBRUARY 12TH at TWELVE at the ASYLUM ARENA in SOUTH
But that wasn’t the only announcement released via the CZW Text
Messaging Service Wednesday night… CZW Officials also announced that
on FEBRUARY 12TH the Australian Junior Heavyweight sensation, RYAN
EAGLES, will be making his anticipated RETURN to the Combat Zone! CZW
Officials have not yet announced who Eagles will be facing in his
return to CZW, so you’ll have to get your tickets for TWELVE at the
CZW Pro Shop here at CZWrestling.com to find out!
These are just a few of the announcements you could be receiving first
hand from the CZW Text Messaging Service. If you haven’t signed up you
can do so right here on the homepage at CZWrestling.com or you can
