The Card so Far for the show:
Pyramid match – for the wZw cruiser division title.
Winners from the previous nights tournament will face off in a worlds first Pyramid Elimination Match., the rules of this match are below.
The Pyramid Elimination Match Rules: 4 Challengers and the Title Holder in the Ring
1…The first fall is a simple pinfall, the first competitor to be pinned will be eliminated, the bell will ring and the other competitors must retreat to a corner, while the eliminated must leave the ring area. The ring will be set up for the next match.
2…With 1 table set in the middle of the ring, and two set up outside the ring, the following elimination will be made when a competitor is put through a table. Once one of the 4 remaining competitors has been put through a table the bell will ring and he will have to retreat to the locker room and the 3 remaining competitors must go to the corners while the ring is set up for the following match.
3…The following elimination will be a first blood match, fall count anywhere and there can be no DQ, weapons will be placed in and around the ring area. Once the bell rings it’s the first person to bleed who will be eliminated. Once the third person has been eliminated he too must return to the locker room and the last two must go into their corners and await the set up of the following match.
4…The title belt will be suspended 14 foot above the ring, two 8 foot ladders will be placed outside the ring, when the bell rings it’s the first wrestler who can climb a ladder and retrieve the title that will become the wZw Cruiser Division Title holder.
Lance Thunder Vs Chris Witton
Chris will be making is wZw debut, a regular 3CW roster member aims to even up some scores he and Thunder had in 3CW.
AJ Anderson Vs Juvenile
These two have had many a battle in the wZw ring, tensions have been rising in the NBWA training school in Newcastle and a war of words broke out. Commissioner Gary graham decided the only way for these differences to be settled was in the ring and the Hartlepool show was the venue to do it.
Tron Vs ??????
The 7 foot, 28 stone monster from Northern Ireland has decided to put his title on the line and made an open challenge for anyone in the wZw locker room to come to the ring and challenge him. Tron is evil in its purest form and has warned anyone who takes up his challenge be prepared to be demolished.
Other matches will be announced on the night of the show..
Friday 18th March, Middlesbrough Town Hall, Middlesbrough
Wrestling returns to the Boro town hall and what a show wZw have in store, only 2 matches have been announced, more to be announced in the next few weeks.

The Card so Far:
Samoa Joe (ROH) vs. Iceman or Spitfire
Ring of Honour superstar Samoa Joe will be making his wZw debut and will be taking on either Local Lad ‘The Spitfire’ or the European Hardcore Icon ‘ The Iceman’ depending on who is the wZw Heavy weight title holder.
Full Pack (wZw) Vs Stevie Douglas & Alex Pain (wXw)
The tag team sensations of Micky L and Iain Robinson will be back in tag team action, with a totally new look. They have decided that its time to become serious and want to be counted as a serious tag team and wrestle on the bigger stage. Their match back will be no easy task, as the tag team from Berlin, Germany will prove that they and their home promotion wXw are the better. This will be a true England vs. Germany showdown.
