IWC closes out 2016 on Saturday night December 10th, 2016 with
Winner Takes All! The action kicks off at 7:00 PM at our home
base of Court Time Sports Center in Elizabeth, PA. Several
matches have been announced previously, and have been seen on
social media, so we're here to round them all up for you!
Ever since DJZ recaptured the IWC World Heavyweight Championship
back in March, he has taken on all comers. In addition to
defending the title in IWC, he has also been competing all
across the globe, including for TNA Impact Wrestling.
Unfortunately for DJZ, he has suffered a myriad of injuries over
the last several months that has kept him out of action in IWC.
Justin LaBar has taken notice of that, and in the wake of Team
LaBar's victory over Team IWC at House of Hardcore in October,
LaBar was able to choose DJZ's opponent for Winner Takes All on
December 10th. Seizing an opportunity, LaBar chose none other
than RJ City to take on the battered DJZ for the IWC World
Heavyweight Championship! Will "Mr. Sports Entertainment" be
able to recapture the IWC Title? Or will DJZ keep fighting
despite the odds against him?
Earlier this month, Chris LeRusso offered to put his Super Indy
Title on the line against anyone... in the world! Now the
challenge has been answered! Formerly from right here in
Pittsburgh, but now residing in Mexico as a major player in
CMLL, Sam Adonis has answered the call and is coming home! Will
LeRusso continue his reign on top of the Super Indy division, or
will Adonis take the title south of the border?!
After many years of featuring the best female competitors in the
world, IWC will finally crown the very first IWC Women's
Champion! Much consideration was put into deciding just who
would be in the four-way to crown the champion, and it came down
to these four women. April Sera was the first female trainee to
go through the Iron City Wrestling Academy. She spent time away
from IWC but made her return this past summer, attacking Ray Lyn
before she exited IWC. Marti Belle was seen on IWC live events
for several years before landing in TNA, and since then she has
helped to rebuild the women's divison. Sonya Strong is the
wildcard in this bout, having never competed in IWC before.
Sonya was trained at the House of Glory Wrestling school in New
York by Amazing Red & Brian XL. This tough-as-nails competitor
from the Bronx wants to make a huge impact on her first night in
IWC. Finally, Britt Baker has been redefining women's wrestling
in IWC since her debut in July 2015. She has not only taken on
several women in IWC, but also a few men! She has also competed
for promotions like AIW, Ring of Honor, and was seen on Monday
Night Raw back in July. Which of these ladies will walk away as
the very first IWC Women's Champion??
The Fraternity have had a stranglehold on the IWC Tag Team
Championship since they won them nearly one year ago in December
2015. Trent Gibson & Channing Decker have defended the titles by
hook or by crook against some of the best tag teams from around
the country, and none of them have had their number... except
one. Remy Lavey & Keith Haught were able to shock the world at
Night of the Superstars in April, capturing the titles while WWE
Hall of Famer Booker T looked on. Unfortunately, Haught & Lavey
were upended for the titles only 2 weeks later (thanks to
Marshall the Bull and an errant cage door). Now after finishing
their rivalry with Marshall and earning his respect, these two
dudes are looking to catch lightning in a bottle twice and
recapture the titles! Will The Frat hang on to the championship?
Or will Haught & Lavey shock the world once again?
Team Storm has been a thorn in the side of Andrew Palace for the
last several months. Bryan Bowers started the whole ordeal by
calling out Palace several times, voicing his displeasure with
his status in IWC. In September, Bowers introduced his
entourage, Jaxon Argos & RC Dupree, fellow students of Lance
Storm's Storm Wrestling Academy. Bowers since announced his
retirement from wrestling, but Team Storm remains undeterred in
their mission to gain full-time employment with IWC. As a
result, they issued a challenge to Palace for a handicapped
ladder match at Winner Takes All, with IWC contracts hung above
the ring! Will Argos & Dupree be able to continue to poke and
prod Palace while being contracted to IWC? Or will Palace rid
himself of his pests once and for all?
Two bulls are on a collision course and will finally meet
one-on-one at Winner Takes All! Wardlow feels he's the one true
big man in IWC. But to really claim that, he'll have to
eliminate the man who's been here since the beginning, former
IWC World Heavyweight Champion Jimmy Vega$! Wardlow and Vega$
have been trying to tear each other apart for months, and they
will finally get their wish on December 10th! The ring will need
to be reinforced for this one as the irresistable force meets
the immovable object!
Last year at Winner Takes All, a new tradition began in the form
of the Proving Ground Battle Royal! Darin Dinero was able to
withstand 20 other men en route to a shot at the IWC World
Heavyweight Champion Jimmy Nutts at Proving Ground 5 in
February. This year, we're opening the field to any competitor
who wants to enter, and their reward will be a shot at ANY
championship of their choice at Proving Ground 6 in 2017! Who
will step up and earn the opportunity of a lifetime?
IWC presents Winner Takes All on Saturday December 10th, 2016 at
Court Time Sports Center in Elizabeth, PA with a special belltime of 7:00 PM. Tickets are
on sale now HERE!
