Ireland’s Irish Whip Wrestling Debuts With Battle Between Czw’s Justice Pain And


Recommended Posts




DEPTFORD, N.J. – Despite being ousted from Combat Zone Wrestling at the

promotion’s March 9 show, former CZW World Champion Zandig will have a shot at

the belt once again when he locks up against current champion Justice Pain on

June 15 at the debut of Irish Whip Wrestling in Dublin, Ireland.


There will be two shows on June 15 – a matinee beginning at 2 p.m. and an

evening show at 7:30 p.m. The CZW World Title will be defended at both shows in

a Barbed Wire Hurley, Gaelic Death Match (a hurley is the Irish version of a

baseball bat).


“We’re happy to have Justice Pain and Zandig here,” said Simon Rochford,

Owner/Promoter of Irish Whip. “We’ve never had anything like this here before.

Irish fans are constantly emailing Irish Whip to express their delight and

excitement that they will finally see some live CZW wrestlers fight it out.”


Both shows will be held at The National Basketball Arena (capacity 2,400) in

Tallaght, Dublin. Tickets are on sale now and are available through

TicketMaster (http://www.ticketmaster.ie, or phone 1890 925 100). The cost is E20.50,

plus service charge.


Irish Whip Wrestling, the first professional wrestling promotion in The Republic

of Ireland, will make history with the first ever fully Irish-promoted wrestling

events. There will be wrestlers from four different countries (England,

Scotland, Austria, and America) on the two shows.


Other matches and wrestlers scheduled for the shows are:

Josh Matthews vs. Chris Harvard (Both from WWF’s “Tough Enough 1”)

From England – Flatliner, Dominator, Lee Butler, Johnny Storm, Scott Future,

Jorge Castano, and Iceman

From Scotland – Robbie McKay

From Austria – Chris The Bambi Killer and Michael Kovac


Chris The Bambi Killer and Michael Kovac will battle for the vacant EWA

(European Wrestling Association) Heavyweight Title, with the winner defending

the title at the evening show in a Ladder match against the winner of the

matinee’s Johnny Storm vs. Jorge Castano.


CZW’s involvement with Irish Whip furthers CZW reputation as an international

company. In addition to a long relationship with Big Japan Wrestling, which has

resulted in frequent trips to Japan for CZW’s wrestlers, CZW has also defended

its title belts in Mexico and England.
