April 9. wXw KREUZZUG ZXI at The Asylum Arena, 7 W. Ritner ST in Philadelphia, PA with a 2:30 pm bell time. This event is also available via iPPV at HybridEnt.TV with free bonus match extras!
In the first of two main events, Japan’s “Crazy Monkey” Jun Kasai makes his wXw debut and his United States return, fighting Drake Younger in a No-Ropes, Barbed Wire Match.
In the second main event for the wXw Unified World Wrestling Title, Chris Hero faces Japanese sensation and wXw Unified champion Daisuke Sekimoto in an international dream match.
Hero was the undisputed ace of Westside Xtreme Wrestling, being a two-time World Heavyweight champion and a former 16 Carat Gold Tournament winner.
In the last couple of months, Big Japan’s Sekimoto has eclipsed Hero. While Hero failed to beat Austrian monster Big van Walter in the 16 Carat Gold tournament finals of 2010, Sekimoto ended Walters two year undefeated streak at on January 15 and won the wXw Unified World Wrestling championship in one of the best matches in wXw history.
Daisuke then defended his title during all three days of the 16 Carat Gold Cup, defeating Bad Bones, Johnny Moss
and El Generico in fantastic fashion. Sekimoto is standing on top of the wXw mountain and is waiting for Hero’s attempt to reclaim the top position from him. Will Hero become the first three-time wXw champion?
Also on April 9, a huge intercontinental tag team match between Big van Walter & Brodie Lee vs. Johnny Moss &
And just added:
SAMI CALLIHAN has just returned home from Europe as the WINNER of the 16 Carat Gold 2011, defeating Tommy End, Yoshihito Sasaki and Davey Richards in the first three rounds, then Big van Walter in a brutal final round. The Oberhausen crowd stood solidly behind Callihan, who almost got murdered a minute into the match. Walter proceeded to dish out a reckless beating before gorilla pressing Sami through the merchandise stand. Covered in debris, Callihan only avoided defeat via countout by fans physically carrying him back into the ring. Walter immediately picked up Callihan, delivering his feared powerbomb to finish Sami off.
But, Callihan did the unthinkable and kicked out. Sami then fought back, hammering Walter with about thirty blows and moves in succession, not giving the monster a single second to rest. When Callihan finally locked in his stretch muffler for the second time, Walter had nowhere to go. After two minutes of hard blows while locked in the hold, the referee stopped the match and awarded Sami the tournament win.
Now, Sami wants to use that momentum to build towards his own title shot … but in his way stands BAD BONES, the Uber-German who was hated last year in Philadelphia and needed to be dragged away from fans before starting fights with them. This WILL BE a hard-hitting clash.
One match receiving high praise at 16 Carat will return for the Philadelphia crowd at Kreuzzug ZXI as LDRS of the New School (Marty Scurll & Zack Sabre jr.) face Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly.
Also in action, Texas’ Brandon Gatson, international star “Tremendous” Emil Sitoci, and more.
Of course, the action is only the beginning as Combat Zone Wrestling hosts ‘Best of The Best X’ at 8 pm.

April 10. wXw/CZW returns for a second double header at the ACE Arena at 725 Sip ST in Union City, NJ, just minutes from New York City’s Lincoln Tunnel. CZW starts at 1:30 pm, while wXw gets underway with KREUZZUG ZXI Part 2 with a 5:30 pm bell time.
“Crazy Monkey” Jun Kasai faces 16 Carat Gold winner Sami Callihan in a Hardcore Match.
The Briscoes take on Johnny Moss and Daisuke Sekimoto.
Chris Hero is challenged by Zack Sabre, Jr. in a true international dream encounter.
And just announced, Emil Sitoci learned his craft under Chris Hero’s guidance in the USA from 2003-04. Since then Sitoci has become a highly successful wrestler in Europe, winning the wXw Lightweight Title twice and the GSW World Heavyweight champion by submitting Steve Corino.
Sitoci will be taking on CZW Junior Heavyweight champion Adam Cole on April 10. The two wrestled before at wXw Fight Club 2010 where Sitoci came out on top. But now, Sitoci is a fan favorite and Cole’s ego can’t be measured.
Also, in a heated tag match, two rivalries collide – the break-up of the Naptown Dragons and the eternal European heavyweight feud between Big van Walter and Bad Bones. On April 10 in Union City, Walter & Drake
Younger team to face Bones & Scotty Vortekz.
