Bell time this Saturday is 2pm. Anybody has an idea how long the show is going to go?
I am interested in attending, but have another commitment in the evening and don't want to miss half the show
If I remember right, last year started at 2:30 and ended sometime around 6:30, so I'd say probably 4 hours. A good chunk of that time though was setting up for the main event. I'd be surprised if it goes too much past 6-6:30 this year.
Listening to the Mike & Tom Show w/ DJ Hyde. DJ said this may be the last TOD because it's not as profitable as it used to be...
While this news kind of bums me out, I doubt it's true. CZW not doing TOD would be like WWE not doing Wrestlemania.
Also, he said he was in The Arena just before he left for Japan/Europe, and it's still stripped down, and still quite a way away from being able to host anything. He also said that Roger wants, and has the backing to, turn it into a concert hall. DJ says he doubts that indy wrestling will ever be back in there.
Some notable things from TOD. Summarized from CZW's Twitter feed. ***Contains spoilers***
Spoiler for CZW TOD XII notes:
- Tremont was cleared by the state to wrestle on future events.
- the Athletic Commission didn't let Masada wrestle. Joe Gacy was his replacement.
- Lucky may or may not have gotten hurt. They said "serious", but he continued and they later said non-life threatening. Cut was duct taped shut apparently. -- https://vine.co/v/bLDeXtdX5BK
- Tsukamoto had a great showing in the tournament.
- Chris Dickinson debuted in non-tournament action. Fuck. Yes. With Sami leaving, Dickinson's the perfect replacement for him IMO.
- Danny Havoc vs. Scotty Vortekz was the final. Labelled a "1000 light tube match". Danny Havoc won.
- DJ Hyde announced that TOD 13 will be CZW vs. BJW, and that Tsukamoto and Havoc are the first entrants.
Look forward to it Matty. Is the show atleast worth a view? I already ordered it. :/
Yeah, I think you'll enjoy it. The only match I'm probably gonna skip on my rewatch is the opener, and that's mostly because of Gacy. And Lucky had a star making performance in his match with Scotty. I wasn't too thrilled he was in it this year going in, but damn lucky's tough. I don't wanna spoil anything for you but that match and the finals were worth it for me.
