Yesterday, Combat Zone Wrestling held their annual “Tournament of Death” show in Townsend, DE on the farm of CZW owner, DJ Hyde. Due to new regulations by the Delaware State Athletic Commission, CZW had to spend thousands of dollars for its talent to get the necessary precautions for the show to be allowed to run. The show had an estimated turnout of 600 fans and the show will be made available as an iPPV later tonight at 8:00 PM EST on HybridENT.tv for $15.
So, now to the results:
