UPW Heavyweight Title Match
HC Loc vs. "The Young Lion of the West" Mattick
It's UPW's past taking on UPW's present and future in the main event of UPW's WrestleBowl 2017. ECW original and former ROH star HC Loc is a former UPW champion who made his comeback last year. Can he climb the mountain once more? Or will Mattick pick up where he left off from 2016 and continue his winning ways and his reign as champion? Mattick has seemingly put his feud with Defiance (Chris Cayden and Maximo Suave) behind him and can now focus on the new year and new challengers. "The Young Lion of the West" has proven to be a fighting champion and will look to prove it again here.
UPW Tag Team Title Match
The Interstate Educational System vs. The "Eh" Team
The Interstate Educational System are #1 contenders for the UPW Tag Team Titles and former champions in their own right. After losing the KDW Tag Team titles last months, Professor Wessler and "Real Mutha Trucka" Dewey Murray will be driven and focused to avenge that loss and regain UPW tag team gold. The "Eh" Team, Vaughn Vertigo and "All Passion" Ryan Cassidy, were viciously attacked by Wrecking U after their match with the team at UPW's November 2 Dismember. Despite the assault, the champions must now turn to attention to the I.E.S. and use their quickness and speed to keep the challengers off-guard in hopes of retaining their titles.
"The King of the North" Carter Mason vs. "Extremely Cute Wrestler" Colin Delaney
Two men who have never faced each other will go one-on-one here. Both Carter Mason and Colin Delaney will be looking to start the new year on the right foot. Carter Mason has impressed Upstate officials and fans alike, But his efforts haven't translated to victories. Mason came up a little short against Nick Ando at November 2 Dismember. Mason hopes to get back on the winning track against UPW veteran and fan favorite Colin Delaney. Delaney returned to UPW at November 2 Dismember after a 10-month absence to a lot of fanfare and excitement, Unfortunately for Colin, he also came up on the losing end in his match against Marc Hauss. Two talented and evenly matched wrestlers look to make a statement with a signature victory at UPW's WrestleBowl 2017.
Special Challenge Match
"The New Wave" Cheech vs. "Your Captain" Nick Ando
Back in September at the Upstate 8. Cheech turned his back on the fans and his friends when he attacked Nick Ando, UPW No Limits Champion "Supercop' Dick Justice, & UPW Heavyweight Champion Mattick. Suffice to say, "Your Captain" didn't take too kindly to this and requested this match for WrestleBowl 2017. These two men are no strangers to each other and have had their share of battles in the past. But considering Cheech's recent attacks and change in attitude, this one is personal. Will Cheech's new mean streak help him secure a victory? Or will Ando gain a measure of revenge and continue his momentum in the New Year? Be there Saturday January 14th to find out.
All this and much more....
