OFFICIAL MARYLAND CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING PRESS RELEASE
MCW RED, WHITE, BLACK, & BRUISED UPDATE - THE COMPLETE CARD
This Saturday night, July 22nd, Maryland Championship Wrestling presents RED, WHITE, BLACK, & BRUISED, at the Fort Meade Army Base in Odenton, MD (just outside of Baltimore). Doors open at 6:30pm, Show starts at 8:00pm.
********DOUBLE MAIN EVENT********
"CAPTAIN CHARISMA" CHRISTIAN CAGE vs. "THE ALPHA MALE" MONTY BROWN
Two of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling's top superstars will battle each other this Saturday night.
Christian Cage, a 13-year veteran, is a former NWA World Heavyweight Champion (def. Jeff Jarrett on February 12, 2006). He is also a former WWE Light Heavyweight, European, and Hardcore Champion, a former 9-time World Tag Team Champion, and a former 3-time Intercontinental Champion.
Monty Brown, a 5-year vet, is a former linebacker in the National Football League. He played football professionally for five years, competing in Super Bowl XXVIII for the Buffalo Bills in 1994. Brown also played briefly for the New England Patriots in 1996. Trained by Dan Severn & Sabu, Brown made his debut in 2001, and has been a top contender for the NWA World Title since January 2005.
Cage and Brown are no strangers to each other. Upon his arrival in TNA, Christian had to deal with Brown over who was the #1 contender for Jeff Jarrett's NWA World Title. Christian was successful then (at TNA Turning Point 2005), and went on to defeat Jarrett for the World Title. Brown was unsuccessful in taking the title away from Cage at TNA Destination X 2006. Brown has waited a long time for revenge. This Saturday night in Baltimore, Brown will get that chance, as he has a golden opportunity to eliminate a major contender for the World Title, a title that he has never held.
MCW HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP - FANS BRING THE WEAPONS MATCH
ADAM FLASH (champion) VS. CORPORAL PUNISHMENT
The personal animosity between Doug Becker and Dan McDevitt goes back to 2002. On January 30, 2002, McDevitt placed Adam Flash in a match against the late, great Eddie Guerrero. McDevitt always believed that Flash did not appreciate the moment of wrestling one of the greats. Flash claims that he did. Nonetheless, problems began there and continued until the last show in 2003 (Shamrock Cup V). During and after the event, Flash made some comments that did not please the MCW owner. Flash was upset, as he found out that he had to qualify to advance to the finale, even though he was one of the Cruiserweight Champions at the time. He also accused McDevitt of using Shamrock's name to make money for himself. And Flash voiced more negative opinions when McDevitt was negotiating with Gabe Sapolsky and Ring of Honor to continue the Cup (prior to the resurrection of MCW), saying that "ROH running the Shamrock Cup would have been a slap in the face, as ROH didn't even know who Shamrock was." He would proceed to say that "Dan McDevitt is one of the biggest piece of s@!# in the business."
Tempers flared again when, during an event in Fort Meade in October 2005, McDevitt has Flash removed from the facility by military police. Flash, somehow, was able to sneak into the MCW Arena in March 2006, and attacked McDevitt in the ring. Security escorted him out, and no charges were filed. In May, Flash would return. Only this time, Flash would attack Candie, the wife of the MCW owner. Another brawl erupted, and McDevitt immediately challenged Flash to a fight. The match was not sanctioned, as MCW provided the time and the ring at Shamrock Cup VI.
Adam Flash vs. Corporal Punishment ended in a no-contest, as the locker room emptied to pull these two apart, once the State Athletic Commission stopped the match for excessive violence. Security tried to step in, but Corporal attacked them viciously with a steel chair. Flash would use this moment to attack Candie once again, nearly taking her head off with a vicious lariat. Flash was then escorted from the building. Afterwards, Corporal Punishment announced that he will face Adam Flash on July 22nd, at the Fort Meade Army Base in Odenton, MD, where there are no commission rules. It will be a match where FANS BRING THE WEAPONS. Corporal has promised that he will bring the barbed wire, thumbtacks, and fire!
An added stipulation is that this match is now for the MCW Heavyweight Championship. Flash used a loophole to win the title at Shamrock VI, defeating Julio Dinero. Can the owner of the company become the company's champion? And what will Corporal Punishment do, in the effort to destroy Adam Flash?
There will be no rules, no disqualifications, no count outs, and no time limit. And you, the fans, can bring the weapons that the wrestlers will use during this match. Parental Guidance is strongly suggested, as this match will not be for everyone. All hell will break loose in the main event this Saturday at Fort Meade!
