CHIKARA: Colin D. Olsen signs with ECW - King of Trios update!

It's a bittersweet feeling to announce that our own Colin Delaney Olsen, half of the "feel good tag team of the decade" with brother Jimmy, is departing CHIKARA for the rings of World Wrestling Entertainment's ECW brand. Hard as it is to believe, they offered him more money, and in light of some of the beatings he's taken recently, their comprehensive medical benefits package was probably the way to go. Colin, we hardly knew ye.

So this Friday, at King of Trios, when Jimmy Olsen and Brodie Lee hit the scene for tournament action, they're going to need a partner. In a long-standing CHIKARA tradition, last-minute substitutes are drawn at random from a hat, live, before the audience in attendance, and a new team is made on the spot. Our Director of Fun, Leonard F. Chikarason, will facilitate this process.

Below are the six opening round matches slated for Night 1 - February 29, 2008 - when King of Trios kicks off at the New Alhambra in South Philly:

Video Link: Sam Robert’s gets surprised by Larry Sweeney

Sam Roberts from The Opie & Anthony Show to serve as “special guest judge” for NYSWF Pro Wrestling

On Saturday, April 5, the world will be in “Prime Time” Sam Roberts’ hands as he will serve as one of three special guest judges for the Boxer vs. Wrestler match pitting professional wrestler Larry Sweeney against boxer Larry Barnes (44-3-0, 17 knockout’s)

Sam Roberts of The Opie & Anthony Show on XM Radio and The Than & Sam Show (www.thanandsam.com) will certainly make an impact on the New York State Wrestling Federation event on Saturday April 5, 2008 in New Rochelle, NY at New Rochelle High School at 7:30 p.m.

Sweeney has made it known amongst his contemporaries in the wrestling industry that he expects to slow down Barnes and take him off his feet to his advantage thus turning the match into a one sided wrestling tutorial.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I expect a former boxer to sign the contract,” said Sweeney, who currently performs for Ring of Honor Wrestling. “I am just going to have to show Barnes that he is walking into my ring on April 5. If he had any respect for the wrestling business, he’d buy a ticket and sit in the front row. He’s making a huge mistake stepping into a wrestling ring with me.”

Barnes is content in knocking out Sweeney early on, but is preparing for the match should Sweeney decide to take the contest to the ground.

“If I have to body slam Mr. Sweeney than that’s what I’ll do, but I’m going for a knockout,” said Barnes, who boxed against the likes of Felix Trinidad Jr. during his boxing career.

In addition to that spectacular match, Total Non-Stop Action (TNA) Wrestling Superstars, Team 3D will showcase their tag-team style. Team 3D is comprised of Brother Devon & Brother Ray and were formerly known as the Dudley Boyz when they wrestled for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Collectively, the tandem are 20-time former World Tag Team Champions for the WWE, TNA, ECW and other wrestling promotions throughout the word.

Team 3D’s main event match versus Monsta Mack & Havok will serve as a homecoming for Brother Devon, who played varsity football at New Rochelle High School before joining the ranks of professional wrestling.

Also appearing on Saturday, April 5 will be Romeo Roselli, who has competed previously for WWE. Currently, Roselli is recognized as the World Heavyweight Champion in Europe and is eagerly anticipating his return to the NYSWF. He also has roles in two major motion picture film releases, “College Road Trip” and “Baby Mama”, both premiering this spring. Roselli will face his former WWE tag team partner, Antonio Thomas.

Former New Rochelle City Councilman and current President of New Rochelle’s Youth Tackle League, Joe Fosina has been signed to serve as the special guest referee for the ladies match scheduled for April 5.

This wrestling spectacular is being sponsored locally by LA Boxing’s locations in Mamaroneck, NY and Secaucus, NJ.

Ticket information for the NYSWF Professional Wrestling is available at http://www.nyswfwrestling.com, http://www.myspace.com/nyswfwrestling or by calling (914) 235-4676. Prices range from $50 to $20 and will be subject to a service charge if purchased online.
