International Deathmatch and Hardcore Wrestling Update for July 29th, 2020
GCW’s Homecoming, Freedoms July 28th Korakuen Show, Takeda Injured, BJW Schedules, IWA MS King of the Deathmatch and More
Top Story: GCW’s Homecoming
GCW returned in full force on July 25th and 26th with the “Homecoming” shows at Atlantic City. Although they’ve ran shows in Indianapolis and the Backyard show these were seen as the “real return” of the chaotic, big match shows GCW is known for in a city where they run their marquee events. Due to the indoor restrictions the show was outside on the pier/boardwalk.
First, the deathmatches for the 2 nights.
The main deathmatch attraction of the weekend was Alex Colon taking on “deathmatch outsiders”. On night 1 Alex defeated AJ Gray who was making his proper deathmatch debut (he did a no ring deathmatch against Alex Ocean that left him with a scar that looked like a frown). AJ Gray is a bit of a lightning rod where he proudly supports the BLM movement and has called out AEW for their lack of diversity on their roster and he brought some added attention to this match.
Alex Colon is pretty much the best “wrestler” in the US deathmatch scene. Gage may have more charisma and Shlak has a bigger presence but Colon is head and shoulders above almost every one in storytelling and crispness.
The match was a real heater with big spots into panes of glass and light tubes. AJ Gray wrestles very hard with stiff forearms and lariats (there was one awesome spot on the outside that the cameras missed where Gray lariated a tube into Alex Colon). The finish came when Alex landed a Spanish Fly off the top rope to Gray through a pane of glass.
Then on Night 2 Alex Colon defeated Zachary Wentz from The Rascalz tag team. He wrestles for Impact and Alex commented to me “I hope Impact knows he’s gonna show up sliced up at the next taping.”
The match was the opposite of the match against Gray where it was more focused on high spots instead of brawling. Wentz went through a barbed wire and glass door on the outside which looked nasty, took the Spanish Fly and finally was pinned after eating some light tube kicks.
Alex Colon participated in a 3rd deathmatch that weekend (more later) and he was destroyed. I know he had a busted eye, a bad gash on his head that required stitches, a bad gash on his back and general wear and tear from wrestling some tough matches.
After the shows most every comment of the matches were enormous praise for the “deathmatch newbies” and Colon who GCW pushed hard as the top deathmatch guy in the country.
On night 1 Shlak defeated Nick Gage in a standard GCW deathmatch featuring panes of glass, tubes, barbed wire doors, etc. The match was going fine until 44Oh (which comes from the 440 zip code in Ohio) consisting of Gregory Irons, Eric Ryan, Eddy Only and Atticus Cogar ran in and destroyed both guys before putting Shlak on top of Gage.
Later in the main event of night 1 RSP defeated Homicide for the GCW title and Gage came out to challenge RSP for the title. After some gaga it was decided that they would do Shlak and Gage vs. 44Oh the next night with Gage’s career vs. A GCW title shot on the line.
On night 2 the main event was the big tag match but Nick Gage was injured during a Beyond wrestling show that afternoon (more on Gage’s injury later). 44Oh attacked Allie Kat and Nate Webb before their scheduled match and called out Gage. The ring was full of deathmatch gimmicks.
Shlak came out alone and cleaned house for a while until the heels got the upper hand. Eventually Alex Colon came out for the save, hit some big spots but was put through a pane of glass. AJ Gray came out towards the end and he and Shlak put Eric Ryan through a pane of glass and Shlak went to pin him but got up. Shlak demanded Gage come out to win his match. Gage was limping bad but made it and made the pin. After the match Gage could be heard saying he didn’t know how he would get out of the ring.
Gage now has the opportunity to challenge for the GCW World Title whenever he wants, similar to the chance Gage gave RSP in Nashville when RSP won the title from AJ Gray.
The other big news of the weekend was that Joey Janela won the DDT Iron Man Championship from the blowup doll Yoshihiko. Yoshihiko matches are usually built around the “real” wrestlers ability to pull off Yoshihiko’s offensive moves such as giving yourself a piledriver and such but Janela spent much of the match doing exaggerated throws and power moves.
I would speculate the DDT Iron Man title will migrate to AEW somehow but who knows.
After the match Yoshihiko’s “spirit”, a man dressed all in black, attacked Joey and ran wild before revealing himself to be Lio Rush. Rush was Janela’s main opponent in CZW where they had several classics before Rush signed to NXT.
On Night 2 Janela defeated Rush in “Rush’s Final Match” with a lot of hype. They did every crazy spot you can imagine (they’re ladder match from Down with the Sickness 2016 was the blueprint). Eventually Janela climbed onto a pillar, about 12 feet off the ground, and delivered an elbow drop to Rush who was on a door on the boardwalk.
The rest of the shows featured incredible wrestling from top to bottom and you can find coverage on most any wrestling website.
I guess the real news coming out of the show is that GCW is pretty much the top indie organization running. All of the coverage from the show praises GCW for their efforts to follow Corona-led regulations such as social distancing (Brett Lauderdale was on video having a heart attack trying to break up the Nick Gage moshpit on night 1) and hand sanitation. They’re basically the only “top indie” running right now and presenting a product people want to watch and support.

North America and Mexico News
Nick Gage’s injury seems to be a bit severe as he’s had to cancel on some upcoming shows (notes below).
The next GCW shows will be on August 2nd in Indianapolis. Announced card is below.
They’ve also announced Tournament of Survival 5 will take place on August 22nd in Atlantic City in “The Sandlot” at the Showboat. It will be hard to have much international talent but I’ve heard the lineup will be very unique.
Its that time of year again and the IWA MS King of the Deathmatches will be July 31 and August 1 from Connersville, IN. Before I go into the show I want to let every one know they will be airing live on Fite.TV
The show will be over 2 nights and features 16 wrestlers in one of the better looking KOTDM lineups in years. RSP, Jimmy Lloyd, Shane Mercer, Casanova Valentine, Josh Crane, Shlak, Dale Patricks, Orin Veidt, Jeff King, Eric Ryan, Eddy Only, Aero Boy, BC Killer, Tristen Ramsey and John Wayne Murdoch (filling in for Gage) are going to go through a single elimination tournament. Its hard to think the finals wouldn’t of had something to do with Gage vs. RSP but now the tournament is wide open.
Ian Rotten has made comments that the second round will be a lot of unique stipulations and the finals will be a barbed wire cage/house of horrors match.
The real draw for me is that Dave Prazak will be calling the show and he’s the best in the biz.
H2O returns on August 1st at the H20 Center with “Back in the Saddle” featuring Homicide’s H20 debut against former JAPW partner and H20 Champion Low Life Louie. Also on the card is Mouse vs. Matt Tremont in a No Roped Barbed Wire deathmatch. Full card below.
Matt Tremont announced on his podcast (Bullshittin with the Bulldozer) that he’s going to be taing a break, similarly to in 2019, where he will only be wrestling in H20. Tremont has a litany of injuries from running hard and fast for so long and he wants to use his body right now to build his own company and focus on his training school.
ICW is running a 2 day “Deathmatch Circus” on August 7th and 8th with 2 big cards along with other “festivities” including a weapons making seminar and a “campfire stories” with Larry Legend and other guests.
The full cards are below but the main highlight matches are on Night 1 they will have John Wayne Murdoch vs. Akira. Akira is a guy who has been doing indies such as ICW Milwaukee (no relation) and begging to go all in on deathmatches from the start. ICW gave him his first big platform where he defeated Reed Bently at the big Drive In debut on June 27th. He then defeated Matt Tremont on July 4th.
Bentley and Murdoch trained Akira. He’s pretty much willing to do whatever to get over and is running as fast as possible. He still has a lot of “basics” to perfect but its a fun show to watch.
Murdoch has been ICW’s main pushed star with big wins over Shlak as well as Jeff King and Gage (who he defeated both in one night). I expect that to continue so they can build to a big blowoff match down the road.
On Night 2 Alex Colon takes on Pagano. Pagano has never had that “big US deathmatch” despite being a star in Mexico. He’s known for a lot of brawling but I know Alex Colon is anxious for the match with the star.
Also on Night 2 they will have Mance Warner, subbing for Gage, vs. Jeff King in a “Circus Deathmatch” which usually refers to the scaffold/barbed wire net gimmick BJW ran in the 90’s and also IWAMS.
The final featured match of Night 2 is Homicide vs. Shlak in a No Roped Barbed Wire match that was supposed to happen before Corona.
The other young star of ICW is Alex Ocean who will be taking on Orin Veidt. Alex Ocean and Akira are poising themselves as a “Miyamoto/Kodaka” type of twosome who are ready to die. They are building to a match between the 2 down the road.
ICW: NHB is going all in on deathmatches and its reminiscent of GCW in Howell. It will be interesting to see how far they can grow with such a violent presentation.
The biggest criticism of ICW: NHB is the chain ropes. I know the owners are all in on them, they feel it sets them apart, but it really limits the guys and the corner platforms don’t look safe to work on.
Danny Demanto, the ICW main promoter, won the CZW world title from Joe Gacy on July 25th at the Titan Championship Wrestling show in Ocean Gate, NJ.
On July 25th Vanguardia, run by Ciclope, Miedo Xtremo and others, was set to have a “Drive In” show in Hidalgo at an undisclosed location airing live on Mas Lucha’s Youtube. The Mexican government is not allowing sports gatherings so the secrecy is just to get away from the cops. Other companies are also doing “secret shows” in Mexico to get around this. Vanguardia is in a weird position as they are directly trying to replace DTU who has fallen on hard times. Crazy King from DTU is appearing on Vanguardia shows and with the Vanguardia management in interviews.
The show was cancelled at the last moment by the police. Ciclope stated bluntly in interviews that it was Crazy Boy and DTU management.
The show is likely going to be rescheduled.
Guanatos Hardcore Crew uploaded a show that was filmed in early July to IWTV called Riesgo Biologico. It was insane and should be checked out. It was filmed in some apartment basement with white tile floor. There is a Demonico vs. Xtreme Fly match that is just insane. It really looks like some gore-filled horror movie with blood everywhere.
When I started this little “documenting project” I remember BAHU from the FMW world told me “I hate covering US companies, too much drama and bullshit” and he was right.
I never ever ever want to spend more time than is absolutely necessary on people’s personal issues, shortcomings or other negative topics but I need to say my opinion on something.
I also need to say that I do receive a check from GCW for work on their Patreon.
Brett Lauderdale was a ref in CZW for many years before being fired by the DJ/Maven office. He left the company with a fair bit of enemies and juvenile antics that other wrestlers have told me about. Since then he has built a very unique company where he shines the spotlight on wrestlers from diverse background of color and LGBT+, he makes a very loud statement with cash donations to local causes after shows, he has always been upfront with me, both with good and bad news, and I have personally watched him drop everything to take care of issues with fans over ticket complications or other stuff that pops up.
Right now Maven and DJ are trying to bury Brett for this and that, citing stories from years ago and weaponizing “cancel culture.” I don’t think this will get far considering DJ Hyde is a known abuser of women and Maven has his own checkered history. CZW has alienated their entire fan base and most of their most die hard core of wrestlers. Going after Brett and GCW at this stage sounds like a bad hill to die on.
I don’t think this is the glass house they want to throw stones at.

Atlantic City, NJ
Freedoms held their first Korakuen Hall show since the Corona Virus pandemic started on July 28th under the “Jun Kasai’s Tokyo Deathmatch Carnival” banner (this show was part 1, part 2 will be August 31). This show was stacked harder than other Tokyo Deathmatch Carnival or Bloody Xmas shows with 3 big main singles deathmatches.
Daisuke Masaoka, who returned on June 26th from a lengthy injury after busting his knee cap at a GCW show, faced his former tag team champion partner Violento Jack. Masaoka returned back in March to turn on Jack but because of Corona this was the first time they met face to face.
The match had a can board and a barbed wire board featuring a lot of flying and mat work. Violento Jack won by submission with a type of leg stretch but Masaoka was pulling at his mask during the finish.
Unlike in the US when a wrestler returns from injury they usually have to climb back up the ranks but I’d expect to see Masaoka in the main events before the year is over.
Jun Kasai defeated Toshiyuki Sakuda in a rematch from their February, 2019 maniacal classic. Sakuda is on his way to being the next big thing with big wins over Abdullah Kobayashi and some tag wins in his home promotion BJW. He is running on pure brutality and terror in his matches by using absurd weapons such as circular saws, the spikes through the cheeks in almost every match (this match was billed as a “Lighttube + Stimulation Weapon” deathmatch encouraging both to bring out their worst inventions) and in this match he brought out a board with several spike boards that businesses use to keep vagrants (ie human beings) from loitering. The spikes are spaced out and 3-5 inches long, they look like they would straight up puncture you bad if you bumped flat on them.
Kasai has been using shaving straight razors as of late (he did against Sakuda in 2019 as well) and he basically digs a nickle sized hole in your forehead as deep as possible, real nasty stuff. In this match Kasai had an oversized straight razor (4 feet tall or so) made out of carboard and such with knives in the styrofoam.
Sakuda has improved a LOT in his presence and charisma (which he always excelled in anyway).
From the clips the match looked good with the spike through the cheeks, knife bumps, they used the spike board in a spot where they slammed a chair into it onto Kasai, lots of big lighttube highspots, a piledriver off the second rope and Kasai won with the single leg hooked piledriver.
I was a bit surprised Sakuda lost here since BJW has been pushing him so hard and they need to approve any booking for their talent.
In the main event Masashi Takeda wrestled Toru Sugiura in a lighttube + Alpha deathmatch for the KFC title where they had a massive wine rack of lighttubes (similar to what GCW did in the NGI 2 finals), loose tubes and panes of glass. The match was all kinds of nasty with lots of knife spots, Takeda taking a front faced bump into a pain of glass and eventually Takeda impaled his right armpit on a tube, similar to Gage at TOD but not as serious, in a simple spot he’s done 300 times when he elbowed a bundle into his back.
The match continued another minute or two but Takeda was bleeding streaks down his side and the referee, Keigo Yoshino, ended the match for Takeda who would have kept going. The match was called off at 12 minutes and 31 seconds. They barely go through even half the gimmicks in the ring.
Takeda promised to come back and Jun Kasai, the event’s promoter, came out after and announced that they would have a rematch for the KFC title on August 31st. This tells me that Takeda was intended towin this match and the title as its very rare for Japanese companies to run matches back to back like that.
Takeda needed minor surgery to remove some glass but it sounds like he’ll recover fine. Its a hard injury after Takeda’s back injury with the knife board at the GCW shows in February.
The show drew 441 fans despite reserving all available 496 tickets (the limit during COVID restrictions).
Their next big show will be Tokyo Deathmatch Carnival Vol. 2 on August 31st with Takeda vs. Sugiura in a rematch main event. The attendance maximum for that will be 713.
They will run “Unchain Night” on August 9th at Shinkiba where they will set up most of the card for 8/31.
Freedoms also had a show on July 26th in Shizuoka with a big six man death match main event that you can find clips of on Battlemen.
Freedoms new big merchandise seller is a small vinyl Kasai figure that sells for about $65 with a limit of 1 per customer.
BJW held their Korakuen Hall show on July 24th with a lot of stuff for the future.
The first story is that Shunma Katsumata from DDT made his deathmatch debut, teaming with Ryuji Ito and Masaya Takahashi losing to Kobayashi, Kodaka and Miyamoto. As usual for a new guy he was the whipping horse and took the pinfall. After the match he announced he would be Ryuji Ito’s partner for the Saikyou Tag League. More on that below.
Also on the show Kenji Fukimoto and Jaki Numazawa defeated Sakuda and Yuki Ishikawa who is the new “low man” of the deathmatch division but going hard.
After the match Jun Kasai ran in, in a slick black suit, and announced he would be teaming with Numazawa vs. Sakuda and Ishikawa at the big Yokohama show on August 29th (more below). Kasai has become a regular for these big BJW shows.
Numazawa returned from over a year absence on July 15th at Shinkiba where he was pinned by Ito. Numazawa has bad hips and knees but he looked very trimmed down in his return match.
Fukimoto from FREEDOMS will be on these tours teaming with Numazawa.
Finally on July 24th Masashi Takeda defeated Drew Parker in a yakkitori skewers deathmatch. Takeda mentioned on Twitter that the weapon selection was small but they still brought the brutality and I would agree. The match looked very good.
Drew Parker took a real chance by staying in Japan during the Corona Virus situation and as a wrestler on a pay-per-night deal he was struggling but he is now a foreign contracted member of the BJW roster (a very select group, I struggle to think who else was ever under contract, maybe Pondo but that might’ve been per-night as well).
Drew Parker hosts a regular “English Lesson” video chat on Line, the Japanese equivalent of Whatsapp or Wechat, which you can find at https://live.line.me/channels/4664397/broadcast/14430044
Parker is also going to be doing dates with DDT and Zero One. He can wrestle hardcore, deathmatch as well as junior styles which makes him very versatile especially since its impossible for foreign talent to enter Japan.
Teams announced so far for the Saikyou Tag League (they separate these guys into strong and deathmatch blocks) are
Ryuji Ito & Shunma Katsumoto
Kenji Fukimoto & Jaki Numazawa
Yuya Aoki & Shinjiro Otani
Takuho Kato & Akira Hyodo
Yasufumi Nakanoue & Kuma Arashi
The League will run from 9/6 to 10/22.
The next big show BJW will be building to will be on August 29th in Yokohama where Ryuji Ito will face Minoru Fujita in the main event. This was supposed to happen before Corona Virus.
Minoru Fujita is not a strong challenger and as a whole BJW really struggles in the deathmatch department just because they rely so heavily on Ito and Kobayashi, who have been main eventing for the last 15+ years, as well as older stars like Miyamoto, Kodaka, Fujita, etc.
Takeda is still a bit more fresh because he’s had so few main event runs in the company but BJW is doing the right thing pushing Sakuda and featuring Ishikawa as much as possible.
Other Japan News
Masashi Takeda and Yuko Miyamoto have had to vacate the NWA Intercontinental Tag Titles which they were to defend at Zero One on 8/2/20 due to Takeda’s injury. Instead it will be Yuko Miyamoto & Takashi Sasaki vs. Towa Iwasaki & Tsugutaka Sato for the vacant titles
Atsushi Onita announced that he will be entering the world of coffee sommelier. This comes after he found some business importing coffee from Laos. He commented that he wants to work with small farms that may have trouble entering the coffee house business. “Its like an indie group” he said. Stay tuned for info on the “Onita Coffee House”.
Also in Onita news he will be hosting a “Street Fight Club” show at Korakuen Hall on August 25th. Not many details however they have been told that they can not to crowd brawling. All shows at Korakuen now have metal barriers.
