INDY NEWS: HUGE UPW/KDW Update 11/29
Monday, December 4, 2017
We are a little more than a week away from Kayfabe Dojo Wrestling's "Christmas Chaos"! It will take place at Pineapple Jack's in Rochester, New York Saturday December 9th. Doors open at 3:30 PM. Bell time is at 4 PM. Tickets are $12 presale, $15 at the door, and $18 reserved front row. This will not only be the last KDW show of the year, but the last KDW show EVER! We'll have more on that in a little bit. But first here are the matches signed so far for the show.
KDW Heavyweight Championship
"The Dark Jedi" Jeremy Jensen (w/Kount C) vs. "The Wet Bandit" Eric Rosecroft (c)
The new champion Eric Rosecroft looks to end 2017 on a high note as he defends his championship against the newest member of the Vile Society and #1 contender for the title in Jeremy Jensen. Rosecroft has been a target of the Vile Society when he refused to join them after winning the KDW Championship at Monster's Brawl. Jensen is a former KDW champion himself and knows what it takes to win the gold, but Rosecroft's fan support and fighting spirit give the champion more than just a puncher's chance.
"The Young Lion of the West" Mattick (w/Kount C) vs. "The Alpha & The Omega" Jason Savior
Ever since KDW's Monster's Brawl, Mattick has been a thorn in the side of Jason Savior. Mattick got involved in Savior's KDW title match against Eric Rosecroft in which Rosecroft got the victory. Then at UPW's November 2 Dismember, Mattick got involved once again helping fellow Vile Society member Jeremy Jensen defeat Savior in a #1 contender's match for the KDW Heavyweight Title. After the show, Savior went to Commissioner Casey Doyle and demanded a match against Mattick and Doyle granted it. So the stage is set as the Alpha and the Omega looks to gain a measure of revenge against the Vile Society.
585 Live Championship
Professor Wessler vs. Icon Ace (c)
The war between Icon Ace and The Faculty has been going on for quite some time now. Icon Ace won the 585 Live Championship against The Faculty's Boz at UPW's Upstate 8. Ace would go on to successfully defend his title against Bam Bam at KDW's Monster's Brawl. But the numbers game would catch up to Ace at UPW's November 2 Dismember as the Faculty defeated Team Icon Ace in a traditional Survivor Series Style match. All four member of the Faculty survived, with Professor Wessler getting the pin on Ace. That pinfall has helped earn the man of higher education a title shot. Professor Wessler looks to teach his rival a wrestling lesson in hopes of becoming the new 585 Live Champion.
All this and much more...
