Three Episodes means Three Huge Main Events This Sunday!
FREE this Sunday at 3pm at the Oceanview Pavilion (click here for info)
MAIN EVENT #1 – Big Duke vs DJ Hyde in a STRAP MATCH
DJ Hyde has been one step ahead of Big Duke for months. Every time Duke turns his back, DJ strikes. Every time Duke is about to get his hands on DJ, DJ escapes. And so it has gone. At one point DJ hurt Duke so badly that he put Duke in the hospital, leading to DJ being fined and suspended. So it comes as no surprise that Duke was thrilled to be granted a Strap Match against his rival.
With Duke literally bound to him, DJ won’t be able to get away. But, it can’t be ignored that Duke is also volunteering to be bound to DJ Hyde – the Lariat God. Was this all just a part of DJ’s plan? Both men seem to think they have the other right where he wants them. We’ll see who is right this Sunday!
MAIN EVENT #2 – Jarek 1:20 vs. Yuma in a NON-SANCTIONED MATCH
It’s been a rough year for Yuma. After working his way back from injury to reclaim the throne as leader of Vermin, he quickly saw the group at Red Carpet Rumble. On his own, he quickly became a target.
In his first post-Vermin moment, he attempted to address the crowd at the Oceanview Pavilion when an unsettling video of Yuma playing with his newborn son suddenly found its way onto the video monitors. For weeks Yuma’s family was stalked and voyeuristically documented until Yuma finally was able to capture the culprit in the act and unmasked his tormentor as Jarek 1:20.
Jarek employed an army of clowns to torment Yuma, kidnapping him and hanging him from the ceiling of the Pavilion for hours. Despite the requests of his doctors and family, Yuma recovered and returned to strike Jarek at his own birthday party. With the emotional and physical stakes running so high, the Marquez family cannot (in good conscience) sanction a match between the two; however, both have agreed to waive their rights and settle their differences in the ring.
MAIN EVENT #3– Bad Dude Tito vs. “Pretty” Peter Avalon for the Hollywood Heritage Championship
Bad Dude Tito has been crying “conspiracy” toward the Marquez family and their “favorite child” – Avalon – for quite a while. His claims gained some odd traction at Milestone. In their Championship match, which Tito earned by winning the Red Carpet Rumble, Nikolas Marquez made a fast/awkward (and seemingly incomplete) three-count in the place of a downed official.
The confusing moment sent Peter home with his belt, sent Tito home furious and sent a nervous Marquez home quickly. The conspiracy theory seemed proven right; however, until Avalon stepped through the curtain to inform Tito that he didn’t like the end of their first match anymore than he did and that he would be willing to offer his wronged challenger a rematch. Tito accepted and has done something unprecedented since then – he’s stayed quite.
A focused/angry Bad Dude could be Bad News for Avalon. But, CWFH has been here before – writing Avalon’s eulogy before a championship match. Yet, Avalon just officially climbed to the top of the record books as the longest-reigning champion in Hollywood history. Hard to imagine there could come a day where it wasn’t PPA All Day.
