He may have conquered The Amazing Insano last week in Dublin, and Darkside the week before in England, but can The Celtic Tiger take on the challenge of Sattitude’s top contender? Find out this Saturday at 10am on RTE 2!

First Ever Champion to be crowned at Celtic Pro 7 on April 8th in Dublin!

Celtic Pro Wrestling commissioner Ross Hart has announced that the company will crown its first-ever heavyweight champion at Celtic Pro 7 on April 8th.

The event will take place at Celtic Pro’s home base of Drimnagh, at the Good Counsel GAA hall. The tournament will be held in single-elimination format. Seven matches between eight of Ireland’s top professional wrestlers will decide the winner, and inaugural Celtic Pro Heavyweight Champion.

The full listing of stars for the tournament will be announced in coming days on – visit the website for more information about the show.

Cabray, Breslin Uncertain For Tournament

At press time, the status of Joey Cabray and Alex Breslin for Celtic Pro 7 on April 8th is in doubt. An incident took place on March 5th in Dundalk, where Adam Joyce attacked Breslin upon losing his match to Neil Frenzy. Breslin, who had been recovering from a shoulder injury, was serving as the guest ring announcer for the evening. Joyce blindsided her with a wrench to her injured shoulder, and when Joey Cabray rushed to the ring to defend his friend, Joyce’s charge Darragh Galligan blindsided Cabray. It was a clear set-up.

Joey Cabray and Adam Joyce have been at odds ever since Joyce took advantage of circumstances to eliminate Cabray from the Celtic Rumble in November. The cocky Joyce began proclaiming himself “giant killer” shortly thereafter. While few pundits would give Joyce a chance against the powerhouse Cabray in a one-on-one match, Joyce has managed to use his J-Team members Darragh Galligan and David Dunn as a shield to keep Cabray at a distance thus far, while continuing to promote his apparent ring superiority at Cabray’s expense.

On the night in question, both Cabray and Breslin were left hurt in the ring and needed assistance to the back. We will have an update on their conditions on in the upcoming weeks, and are expecting an imminent statement from Ross Hart regarding the actions of Adam Joyce and his “J-Team.”

Adam Joyce Injured

Adam Joyce broke his collarbone competing against a debuting Forbes Kelly on Sunday’s Celtic Pro Wrestling show in Dundalk. The injury occurred when Kelly hit him with his tornado facebuster for the win. Joyce will be out 4 – 6 weeks, and doctors are considering surgery options. He had no official comment at press time, but was thought to be planning a measure of revenge with Darragh Galligan and David Dunn, who Joyce will continue to manage as he recovers.
