On Friday March 2, Absolute Intense Wrestling presents their next big show in 2012, Gaulent For The Gold 7! The show will take place at Turners Hall, one of the most famous wrestling venues in all of Ohio, located on 7325 Guthrie Avenue in Cleveland. Bell time is 7:30 PM, and tickets are only 15 dollars, with online purchases admitted first. Here is the line-up for the huge show:
30-Man Gauntlet For The Gold: The show is headlined by the 7th annual Gaulent for the Gold 7 match. The rules are simple: 2 competitors start off the match, with another competitor entering the match every 90 seconds. Competitors in the match can only be eliminated by being thrown over the top rope, with both of their feet hitting the floor. The Winner of the contest will receive an Absolution Title shot at Absolution 7 in June. This all may sound similar to the Royal Rumble match, but the big difference is, the Gaulent will be much better. So far entrants in the match include Eric Ryan, Josh Prohibition, M-Dogg Matt Cross, AIW Intense Division Champion Bobby Beverly, and so many others.
ACH vs. Façade vs. Uhaa Nation vs. Rickey Shane Page 4-Way Battle: AIW has been known for putting on spectacular 4-way contests in the past, but this one could take the cake. ACH has made only two appearances in AIW before, including being apart of the St Louis Anarchy showcase match back in December. He has made quite the impression not only in the eyes of AIW fans, but in the eyes of numerous other fans in Independent Wrestling. Facade was unable to pick up recent victories at the past 2 AIW events, failing to beat Eric Ryan and Samuray Del Soy in a 3-way back at Hell on Earth, and failing to capture the Intense Division title against Bobby Beverly back at Nightmare Before Xmas. Facade needs a win here to get back on track in his AIW career. Uhaa has also made a huge impression on the entire AIW fanbase, having two tremendous matches with AR Fox. Now he looks to expand in his career in AIW, and this would be a huge win for Nation. RSP has been on a losing streak since he could not win the Absolute Title from Shiima Xion back in October. Page is likely the most determined here to win the match, as he is more focused than ever to get a rematch for the Absolute Title.
Tim Donst vs. BJ Whitmer: Ever since debuting for AIW last May, Whitmer has stated he is looking for the best of the best in Independent Wrestling to square of with in AIW. And there is no better opponent for him than “The Man” himself, Tim F’n Donst. In fact, these two did face off last May in AIW, with Donst coming out as the victor. Perhaps Whitmer is looking for a bit of redemption in their encounter this time around. Also will we finally found out which side Donst is on in the war of AIW vs. Flexor Industries? Only way to tell is to attend the huge event.
Marion Fontaine vs. Colin Delaney: Both men are coming off of huge victories at AIW Nightmare Before X-Mas 5. Fontaine picked up a win over The Kuntucky Gentlemen, Chuck Taylor, while Colin won a brutal match against his former tag team partner, Jimmy Olsen. Who will pick up the win, The “Extremely Cute Wrestler” Colin Delaney or The ‘Messiah of the Mustache” Marione Fontaine.
“Wrestling Road Diaries 2: Filming” Featuring Colt Cabana, “Mr. 1859” Cliff Compton, and Luke Gallows: Back in 2009, Colt Cabana, along with Sal Rinauro and Bryan Danielson (WWE World Champion Daniel Bryan) filmed without a doubt one of the best wrestling documentaries ever released entitled “Wrestling Road Diaries”. Now Colt is back at it again filming a sequel to the critically acclaimed documentary, and has decided that filming will take place at AIW’s Gaulent for the Gold 7. This time around, he is bringing two new friends with him, that being former WWE competitors Luke Gallows and “Mr 1859” himself Cliff Compton. Who knows what these 3 men have up their sleeves, though we know when these three are in the same room, good times and great memories will surely be created.
Finally, it’s important to note that one of the most special things about this show is that AIW will be making its debut to Turner’s Hall. For those that do not know, this venue was made popular by Cleveland All-Pro shows in the past, promoted by the late and great J.T. Lightning. It has been 5 years since wrestling has taken place in Turners, and Absolute Intense Wrestling is looking forward to bringing professional wrestling back to what some call ‘Cleveland’s ECW arena.”
