Feb 4th- WInnipeg, MB
1) In the opening match Team Impact, Robby Royce & Anderson Tyspn Moore with TJ Bratt became the new CWE tag team champions in a 3-way tag team contest in a match involving now former champions JJ Sanchez & “Big” Cliff Corleone with Hump and Daisy Mae and the Matt Fairlane & Bobby Fox, The Strip N Dales. Daisy Mae through in a weapon that was intercepted by Fairlane who knocked out JJ cold. Before being able to make the cover a women from the audience jumped the guardrail and kicked Fairlane between the legs allowing Team Impact to score the tag titles. It was revealed the women and newest member of the Alliance of Defiance was Lacey, Team Impact’s former valet prior to joining CWE.
2) Antonio Scorpio Jr. & “The Enforcer” JP Kaos with TJ Bratt were victorious in the “North End Street Fight” against Boyz in Da Hood, Scottie Rapper & B. Brian Rich following a tombstone from Scorpio on Rich. After the match Scorpio, Kaos, and Bratt continued the beating before Zack Mercury made his return an almost 6 month hiatus. Mercury explained Scorpio did some damage by taking him out of action for close to six months but it wasn’t enough to keep him down for good. Zack Mercury challenged Antonio Scorpio Jr. to a match on March 4th in Winnipeg.
3) “The Brickhouse” Paul Arcidi with Jayme Galloway defeated “Pimp Daddy” Rick Matthews in a dog collar match to become the second ever 123Approved.ca Open Rules champion. Arcidi pinned a bloody Rick Matthews following an Alabama Slam on the steel chain.
4) Tyler Colton secured the contract for a future title match in a six man ladder that included Kevy Chevy, “Beautiful” Bobby Jay, Billy Blaze, Mike Mission, and Tommy Lee Curtis. As the contract was being battled for it fell from the ceiling to the canvas, Tyler Colton dove across the ring to grabbed the contract it what was considered a major upset.
5) CWE champion Mentallo retained his championship at the 23 minute mark against “Hotshot” Danny Duggan. CWE’s two most popular stars battled back and fourth with both men refusing to lose. After referee Kelly Russell was struck to the mat the ring was surrounded by the Alliance of Defiance, Royce, ATM, Scorpio, Kaos, and Bratt. As Mentallo and Duggan prepared for battle Mentallo signaled the thumbs down before the AOD attacked Duggan. Following the attack Mentallo hit his patent moonsault for the victory. Mentallo then embraced the AOD and celebrated his victory as the AOD celebrated the acquisition of its newest member.
6) Former WWE star Carlito pinned former CWE champion AJ Sanchez. Following the Duggan/Mentallo match which was scheduled to be the last match of the evening after Canadian customs informed CWE Carlito was withheld at the border and not make the show officials had gotten word Carlito had been released and would arrive to the event in an hour. With the event being over AJ Sanchez hit the ring and grabbed the microphone for close to an hour in what will go down as one of the most historic moments in CWE history and kept the packed house of nearly 400 fans in their seat with a variety of tactics and form of entertainment until the much anticipated Carlito arrived to a loud ovation.
CWE returns to Winnipeg with back to back shows on March 3rd and 4th featuring WWE Legend The Honky Tonk Man. Details to be released in the coming days!

Crafting & “Cruz”ing Up The Ladder: Jamilia Craft & Jennifer Cruz Set For One-on-One Encounter on 3/5
– Report by Jimmy Gentry of WSUWrestling.com
When Jennifer Cruz debuted in WSU in the Spring of 2009, not much was known about this rookie. Cruz, who had a happy-go-lucky personality, was ecstatic about her chance to make waves in WSU. What Cruz lacked in experience, she made up for with her drive and passion for the sport. Cruz’s first year in WSU didn’t turn up many victories, but by the time December 2009 rolled around, Cruz told WSU locker room insiders that she felt she was progressing and learned a lot from the WSU veterans, as Cruz was able to share a locker room with the likes of Mercedes Martinez, Nikki Roxx, Awesome Kong, Molly Holly, Jazz, Alicia, Dawn Marie & countless other stars on the womens wrestling scene.
On 12/12/09, Cruz would pick up her biggest victory to date, when she teamed up with former TNA Knockout Champion, Angelina Love. Both Love & Cruz defeated Rick Cataldo & Jana. Cruz said after the match that Angelina Love was a great influence on her and helped her learn about success in the squared circle.
Cruz would start to gain some confidence, and would start calling herself J-Cruz, embracing her light-hearted side. Unfortunately, an injury would side-track Cruz, and Cruz would miss most of 2010.
Cruz would make her return to WSU at the “Mercedes vs Rain II” event in November of 2010. Cruz brought along with her, the debuting Jamilia Craft. Craft, a flashy rookie, became the second masked wrestler to compete in a WSU ring. (The first masked wrestler was “Big Van Missy”.)
Cruz & Craft would challenge the WSU Tag Team Champions, The Belle Saints. Cruz & Craft would come up short in their championship match. While Cruz has lost in WSU before, it seems frustrations of returning to her less than victorious ways settled in.
Immediately after the match, Cruz was putting down Jamilia Craft to anyone that would listen to her. Cruz would tell reporters such as Frank Krewda of PWI Magazine, Aaron Carlton of Lethalwow.com & Dan MacMillian of Snapmare.com that she “had it” and she was “going to make a big change.”
A different Jennifer Cruz showed up to WSU’s 12/11/10 event, “Alicia vs Roxx II”. Cruz denounced Jamilia Craft and debuted her new tag team partner, “The Sugar Freak” Monique. In a video that aired on the “Alicia vs Roxx II” DVD, Jamilia Craft, who wanted to question Cruz about her words, attempted to enter Cruz’s locker room. Cruz, who somehow found a golden star with her name on it, to put on her locker room door, didn’t answer Craft’s knocks. After Craft left, Cruz peeked her head out to say that she would only talk to important people, like President Obama! We have no word on how the Obama-Cruz summit went, but if we get that news, we’ll let you know!
On the “Alicia vs Roxx II” event, Cruz & Craft had two different matches, but while both picking up losses, fans talked about the potential of Jamilia Craft, while blowing off Cruz’s match. Jamilia Craft put up a valiant effort against former WSU World Champion, Angel Orsini. Despite losing, fans & critics talked about how close Craft was and how deep Craft’s game was for a rookie.
As stated above, Cruz found a new partner, debuting Monique. Cruz lobbied for another WSU Tag Team Title match. However, despite a new partner, Cruz was on the losing end of another match, as Monique was pinned in a match against the WSU Tag Team Champions, The Belle Saints.
Cruz was furious after the match, throwing garbage cans, metal folding chairs and anything else she could get her hands on in the locker room. Cruz refused to do a video interview with WSUWrestling.com that night, telling WSUWrestling.com to “back da f%# up!”
At WSU’s most recent event, on 1/22/11, our second iPPV, “The Final Chapter”, which is now on sale on DVD at WSUVideo.com, Cruz & Monique attempted to pick up their first tag team win, challenging The Boston Shore. Unfortunately for Cruz, Monique was pinned again. Perhaps Cruz just has bad luck in tag matches as of late? Whatever the case, Cruz was furious and refused to talk to anyone in the WSU locker room after her match.
On the other end of the spectrum, Jamilia Craft defeated the impressive Allysin Kay. For Craft, it was her first win, and vindicated fan & critics beliefs that she was one to watch. PWI magazine would wind up profiling Craft, just as that, “One To Watch” in one of their recent magazines. That magazine was being passed around the WSU locker room before the show, with wrestlers congratulating Craft on her accomplishment.
With Craft’s early success, positive press and victory, Cruz could not take it any more. Cruz violently assaulted Craft as Craft made her way to the locker room after he win. Cruz told Craft that she heard Craft has been looking for her, and now she’s found her. Cruz said she’ll see Craft on 3/5, at WSU’s Four Year Anniversary Show.
Jamilia Craft, when asked for a quote from WSUWrestling.com said, “I don’t know why Cruz is targeting me for the frustrations in her career, but now I’m frustrated by Cruz and I’ll be there on 3/5 to make sure Cruz is even more frustrated when she’s looking at the lights again in WSU. I have worked very hard to get where I am and we all take bumps & bruises, and on 3/5, Cruz will be a bumped and bruised Cruz.”
Jennifer Cruz refused to talk to WSUWrestling.com for this story, only telling us over the phone, “I have Obama on the other line, stop callin’ me son.”
Jamilia Craft vs Jennifer Cruz is signed & sealed and will be delivered on iPPV and for fans live on 3/5 in Union City, NJ. WSU officials have deemed this match as a match with Spirit Championship title implications, with the winner of this match rising up the Spirit Title Rankings. For the now heinous Jennifer Cruz, this is a win she needs to justify her change of heart in WSU. For Craft, this is a match that can springboard her WSU career.
