X-PAC CHALLENGES “GQ” GAVIN QUINN FOR THE CLASH CHAMPIONSHIP
The news was brought to us by “Santa Claus” aka Cameron Skyy in disguise; the major “X-Mas” announcement that the CLASH Board of Directors had been teasing was indeed that Former WWE/TNA/WCW/WSX Star X-Pac has indeed challenged “GQ” Gavin Quinn for the CLASH gold on 1/29/11! Quinn was able to secure the pinfall on Jimmy Jacobs in their Tag Match at Merry CLASHmas on 12/10, however this will be Quinn’s first official title defense since winning it in November, pinning Skyy. Possibly one of the biggest title matches in CLASH History, and it all goes down on the Anniversary; who will “seize the day?”
MENA LIBRA ACCEPTS TRUTH MARTINI’S CHALLENGE
For a feud that has been boiling for nearly 1 year since Truth Martini’s arrival to CLASH Wrestling as the company’s new CEO in January; Mena Libra has accepted Martini’s challenge to a 1 on 1 singles match on 1/29/11!
This one has an extended paper trail, as we take a look back:

CLASH Blog: "Mad Scientist" Tommy Treznik (12/17/10)
In a age where statuses, tweets and surveys (remember those?) allow one to express oneself more than ever before, it's an absolute shame that your Mad Scientist has been unable to share more of himself. For this reason, once a season, I sign into my Formspring account, patiently waiting to be asked thought-provoking, meaningful questions.
Surely, someone wishes to know my favorite field of science! My favorite quote! Are there not a few who'd like to learn more concerning my becoming a doctor? At the very least, more about my H3RD Schematic!?!
I now know that these topics are of no importance to the hopeless masses. Really, it's for the better. To think that I, Tommy Treznik, could gain anything by conversing with one of my readers! A discussion with one of you would prove as eventful as J. Miller's CLASH Championship reign (Where's the Murderous Monk at now? Exactly!). Your Mad Scientist is an inquisitive person with an insatiable need for FACTS, FIGURES & FUNCTIONS! When Tommy Treznik is met with something or someone unfamiliar, he makes it a point to absorb every ounce of knowledge concerning the subject. While others subscribe to the notion that "Ignorance is Bliss," this Scientist researches, experiments and LEARNS ALL THAT NEEDS TO BE LEARNED!
For three months, a masked man terrorized CLASH Wrestling, attacking competitors at will. Ninety days after his first appearance, not one wrestler, one fan, or one member of CLASH Wrestling management had learned anything about him. If this does not exemplify your incognizance, perhaps you are the victim of a Bus Driver and not of sound mind!
When I returned home the night of November 20th, I immediately focused my studies on the aforementioned masked brute. I had felt his power first hand and realized the monster made greater an ally than enemy. Within 24 hours, I had learned all I needed to know about Ded Vaughn.
Like an adopted son, I shall teach Vaughn all my secrets! Those foolish enough to question his ability, ask Dave Manzo how he felt after Ded's attack on Friday night! In I, Vaughn has a gifted professor with a PHD in PGD! In Vaughn, I have the final variable in my H3RD Schematic, an instrument of destruction with EXPONENTIAL POTENTIAL!
"Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see." - Benjamin Franklin Tommy Treznik
With Christmas just days away, CLASH Management has finalized January 29th's Seize The Day IV supershow by adding two blockbuster matches! Without question, the CLASH Tag Team scene has blown up in 2010. There are a number of great teams all vying for a shot at the CLASH Tag Team Championship, currently held by Too Sweet. In the interest of fairness to all these great duos, a Fatal 4 Way Tag Team Match has been signed for Seize The Day IV, with the winners gaining #1 Contendership and a shot at the Tag Team gold!
Victorious Secret and the team of William J. O'Malley & Gideon Malice have squared off with one another in recent memory, but neither team have been in the ring with The H3RD's tandem of Austin Manix & Donnie Hallows. This Fatal 4 Way bout will also feature the reformation of perhaps the most dominating Tag Team in CLASH history, the team of Wreckingball & Dragon Kreed known as Wreckingforce. Who will walk out of Seize The Day IV with a guaranteed Tag Team title shot? Join us on January 29th to find out!
Rounding out the event is a singles bout between Hakeem Zane and Tommy Treznik's latest H3RD acquisition Ded Vaughn. Despite terrorizing CLASH competitors for months, January 29th will mark Vaughn's formal in-ring debut. Zane, the first victim of Vaughn's attacks, has stepped up to the plate to face the untested monster. Will Hakeem Zane be the first man to inflict any damage on Ded Vaughn? Or will Tommy Treznik lead Vaughn to his first victory as a member of The H3RD? There's only one way to find out, join us for Seize The Day IV, live from the Taylortown Trade Center on January 29th! Save money and ensure you get the best seats possible! Purchase your tickets today!

FORMER FRIENDS TO COLLIDE AT SEIZE THE DAY IV!
It’s been signed, “Ace High” Cameron Skyy will battle “Caveman” Tyler
Elkins in a singles bout at Seize The Day IV in Taylor, MI on 1/29!
This one goes way back to Tyler Elkins being a young rookie in 2009
while Skyy was in a bitter rivalry with then champion, Dragon Kreed.
Skyy acquired the aid of Tyler Elkins to help get the better of Kreed
and forcing him on the shelf for several months.
The two were quite an odd couple as the Vegas Bad Boy tried to give a
bit of Sin City glimmer to the Bare Foot Brawler, meanwhile Skyy
adopted some of Elkins fierce brawling and fight strategies in the
ring. The two equally held 1 CLASH Championship in 2010 while they
were a duo, and the two were both stricken with injury, receiving
surgery together at Oakwood Hospital on the same day.
When the ball started rolling equally for the two, back from serious
injuries; it seemed Skyy’s time away from the ring had changed him to
a different person. His battle with Dragon Kreed pursued, except this
time, he turned down Elkins’ aid to help and in turn suffered defeat.
Come ALL OUT WAR in September, Tyler Elkins pinned Cameron Skyy in an
opening 6 way fray to give him the last entry in the rumble match,
however Skyy returned the favor by eliminating him. The disagreements
were becoming obviously apparent and on November’s Divided We Fall
event, Skyy ignored Elkins aid once again, but this time Elkin’s
struck Skyy with a crutch, causing the CLASH Championship victory to
go to Gavin Quinn.
We saw the two collide in Tag Action at MERRY CLASHMAS on 12/10, but
who will walk out in their singles confrontation at SEIZE THE DAY IV??
Will there be wine glasses for celebration for the Sin City Sparklin’
one, or will the Prehistoric Caveman walk out victorious?? Find out on
ANTIDOTE HANGS, ONLY WAY TO WIN IS TO CLIMB A LADDER
“Swagg Starr” Dave Manzo over the past year has gone through many
changes; notoriously a Tag Team wrestler with Former employee Jack
Night, the two were comprised as Night-Life. When CEO Truth Martini
fired Night in September, Manzo relaunched himself into singles
action! October 2010 rolled around and he was scheduled for a singles
bout against “Mad Scientist” Tommy Treznik whom had already been
utilizing inventive elixirs pre-bell on his matches to help aid to
victory. However, this “Super Strength” elixir was swiped and gulped
by the “Swagg Starr” giving him unparalleled strength in the ring! The
term “Swagg Starr” Super-Manzo has certainly made the rounds in the
Nonetheless, the “Mad Scientist” has sworn to calm the storm with an
antidote he has concocted in his lab, the antidote will hang 15 feet
above the ring where the only way to win is to climb a ladder! If
Tommy Treznik wins, this will allow him to dump the antidote down Dave
Manzo’s throat; if Manzo is victorious, he is in charge of the
antidote and can do with it what he wants! Certainly one of the most
unorthodox ladder matches you will ever bear witness to, be there on
OTHER SIGNED BOUTS FOR SEIZE THE DAY IV
Half of the H3RD (Austin Manix & Donnie Hallows) will take on the
tandems of Gideon Malice & William O’Malley, Wrecking-Force

COLUMN: John Striker Presents His 2010 CLASH Awards
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen to a star studded evening of extraordinary literary proportions. This is a very special addition of Pillar to Post. Of course, every edition of Pillar to Post is very special, but this one somehow rises above. Now if you’re privileged enough to be my friend on Facebook, or smart enough to be a fan of "Clash Pro" then you should’ve seen my poll asking for the fans input on the best of the best of 2010. If not, shame on you, but you can vote anyway if you want your voice to be heard. So, let’s get into it the 2010 John Striker CLASH Wrestling Awards. I will give the top few fan picks as well as the percent of overall votes that person received, followed by my choice and why you fans either got it right or wrong.
Favorite CLASH Employee
This category was designed to give the respect due to those of us who ply our craft outside of the squared circle. I took myself and CLASH Radio off the list, because, above all else I’m a fair and honorable person.
Fans Pick: Merch Girls 45% B 10%
Corky Robinson 10%
John Stiker's Pick: B
The fans clearly wanted the merch girls and, while they are good at what they do, and look and smell much better than B, I have to give my props and respect to the man. He has a lot of information to memorize, an important job in relating information to you, the fans, and at one point even managed to weasel his way in as CEO of CLASH Wrestling. What's not to love?
This goes to the guy or guys who are very good at what they do and might not get the opportunity they deserve to be on top.
Fans Pick: The Pain Killers 33% Wreckingball 28%
William J O'Malley 10%
John Striker's Pick: William J. O'Malley
The Pain Killers are very good but with Tommy Treznik and The H3RD they will have plenty of opportunity to make an impact. Wreckingball has also had plenty of moments to shine, including opportunities to win the CLASH Championship. O'Malley hasn't, and that's why he wins this award.
Next Big Thing
This goes to the wrestler or wrestlers who we think will have the best 2011. Plain and simple, and a close contest.
Fans Pick: Too Sweet 20% Wreckingball 18%
Mena Libra 8%
John Striker's Pick: Too Sweet
The fans were very unsure on this category. They seem to be very optimistic about a lot of people. In fact, 33% of the votes went to someone other than the top 5 vote getters. That being said, I agree with the most popular pick, Too Sweet. They're the new CLASH Tag Team Champions and they've got all the momentum heading into 2011.
Rookie of the Year
While the last award was who you are expecting great things from, the rookie of the year award honors the wrestler or team who broke out in 2010 and is now engrained in the hearts of all the CLASH fans.
Fans Pick: Mena Libra 30% Too Sweet 18%
Austin Manix 13%
Bump N' Uglies 13%
John Striker's Pick: Mena Libra
Mena's rise has been meteoric, largely due to her year long feud with CLASH CEO Truth Martini. Things are coming to a head at Seize The Day, so make sure you attend!
What two or more wrestlers had the most interesting interactions in 2010?
Fans Pick: Mena Libra & Truth Martini 38% Cameron Skyy & Tyler Elkins 18%
Gavin Quinn and Rave Killbourn 6%
John Stiker's Pick: Mena Libra & Truth Martini
The fans got it right again. It's been a great year for Mena Libra and it's great to see her rise from camera operator to CLASH competitor. I think everyone relates to her struggle, and that's made her a "must see" addition to CLASH Wrestling.
Best Tag Team
Very simply, who has been the best tag team of 2010?
Fans Pick: Too Sweet 45%
John Striker's Pick: Too Sweet
The fans have it right. Too Sweet have been more than red hot since debuting in CLASH Wrestling. They captured the Tag Team Championship and haven't looked back. They bring so much energy to the fans that there was no contest, Too Sweet swept the category.
Best CLASH Champion
There were quite a few champions in CLASH in 2010. Five, to be exact. This award honors the best of those five.
Fans Pick: “Ace High” Cameron Skyy 28% J. Miller 15%
Gavin Quinn 15%
Tommy Treznik 8%
Tyler Elkins 8%
John Striker's Pick: J. Miller
The fans picked Cameron Skyy, but I, John Striker like to look at the facts. Let's count the successful CLASH Championship defenses of 2010 shall we? Tyler Elkins 0, Cameron Skyy 0, Tommy Treznik 0 (The "Mad Scientist" held the gold for 18 minutes), Gavin Quinn 0 (to his defense Quinn won the title in November), and finally J. Miller 1. So the most highly contested title in all of CLASH was only defended sucessfully ONE TIME in 2010, by the currently injured J. Miller. For this reason alone, the "Murderous Monk" gets my vote for Best CLASH Champion of 2010.
Best in CLASH
The crown jewels of this article, the best wrestling in CLASH Wrestling.
John Striker's Pick: GQ Gavin Quinn
The fans again went with Cameron Skyy, a good choice. But it's not by accident that GQ is CLASH Champion. He is the best in CLASH Wrestling today. He's looking to prove that he is more than just the best in CLASH Wrestling though, because at Seize The Day 3 on January 29th, GQ will go one on one with multi-time champion X-Pac. Make sure you check out CLASHWRESTLING.COM for information on ordering tickets at a discount because you won't want to miss this match. As great a wrestler X-Pac is, my money's on Quinn, that's why I picked him as Best in CLASH.
Thanks for joining me, you didn't even have to wear your suits. Be sure to check out Seize the Day, I'll see you there!
Despite competing for CLASH Wrestling for the better part of three years, the Power Rangers have never wrestled at our biggest event of the year, Seize The Day. On January 29th, this will change as the White Ranger & Blue Ranger have just been added to the event! Ten minutes prior to the official start of Seize The Day (7:50 PM, to be exact), the Mighty Morphin’ ones will step into the squared circle against two unknown opponents! Don’t miss this opportunity! Be there when the Power Rangers make their Seize The Day debut! Ensure you get the best seats possible, for the best price possible! Purchase your tickets online today & save!
By now I’m sure that even those with the smallest of minds have
figured out that The H3RD is the most dominating and powerful force
not only in CLASH, but in the entire world of professional wrestling!
January 29th, at Seize the Day, on CLASH Wrestling’s biggest and
grandest stage – we take another step in our quest for total
The H3RD has finally been given the chance that we rightfully deserve
when myself Austin Manix and Donnie Hallows face three other mediocre
tag teams for #1 Contendership! Personally, I think CLASH management
should just hand the titles over to us and save everyone else the
embarrassment of what lies ahead for them! Let’s look at our
opposition shall we?
In one corner you have the team of the delusional William J. O’ Malley
who doesn’t even look like he’s capable of getting dressed by himself
and his grandfather Gideon Malice. In the other corner is Victorious
Secret, now what you two little boys do outside of the ring is your
business and who am I to judge but when your up against The H3RD be
prepared to get hurt!
And that brings me to the last team, Wreckingforce! That’s right, one
of the most dominating teams CLASH Wrestling had ever seen, prior to
The H3RD of course! Many others may be intimidated by Dragon Kreed and
Wreckingball teaming up, but need I remind everyone that AUSTIN MANIX
HAS PINNED BOTH DRAGON KREED & WRECKINGBALL IN THE PAST TWO MONTHS!
It seems everytime either Kreed or Wreckingball meddle in the business
of The H3RD they don’t leave the same way they came in! In fact, from
what I’ve heard the Wreckingball still isn’t medically cleared to even
compete in a wrestling ring after we crushed in his skull at Divided
Myself and Donnie are not only going to walk out of Seize the Day the
new #1 contenders but we are going to enjoy the opportunity to lay
beating after beating into anyone who gets in our way! I’m sure there
is pride to consider, but if I were any one of the other three teams I
would call in sick on January 29th. Tuck your tail between your legs
and save yourself from a beating the likes of which none of you have
ever endured before!
Wow X Pac in an indy match reminds me of when back in the early ninties he and Jerry Lynn tore it up on the indy scene in minnesota which got them jobs at the big companies (Sean went to WWF and Jerry Lynn later became mr JL)
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” – George Santayana
They say it takes a big man to admit when he’s wrong. Well, in the world of CLASH Wrestling there is no one bigger than The Wreckingball and I’m not embarrassed to admit that I have made some mistakes during my career. Thankfully, Wreckingball can fix two mistakes in one match, on one night, at Seize The Day IV on January 29th.
Wreckingball Mistake #1: The last time myself & Dragon Kreed tagged together was in December 2008 in a Fatal 4 Way Tag Team Match, and do you know who won that bout? The H3RD. I take full blame for losing. Dragon Kreed had the match won but I was more focused on WreckingBALL instead of WreckingFORCE getting the victory. Tommy Treznik then swooped in and got the pin (while Dragon and I were arguing). That was the end of Wreckingforce.
Wreckingball Mistake #2: Wreckingball has competed at two Seize The Days (STD II vs. Dragon Kreed & STD III vs. J. Miller) and on both occasions I came up short and lost. I made the same mistake in both matches, I underestimated my opponent and they took advantage and got the win. Fun fact, both Dragon Kreed and J. Miller went on to become CLASH Champion just 3 months after beating Wreckingball.
But enough about the past, Wreckingball is here to talk about Seize The Day IV. See, I’ve learned from my mistakes and Wreckingball is not only ready to get his first Seize The Day win, but Wreckingforce is ready to become #1 contenders to the CLASH Tag Team Championship!
Now on to my opponents at Seize The Day IV. In one corner you have the team of William J. O’Malley and Gideon Malice. Ever since leaving me high and dry at All Out War (costing me the Tag Titles) Wreckingball has been waiting to get his hands on O’Malley. I heard that skinny punk say that he carried Wreckingball while tagging as Wreck N' Roll. Well, I know that’s not true. I mean, look at his arms. There is no way that he could carry an 8 pound bowling ball let alone a 400 pound Wreckingball!
I never thought I would say this, but I actually miss Will Vendetta. Of course he was really annoying with those dumb green tights and always playing stupid air guitar, but he was nowhere near as annoying as O’Malley with his thrift store suits and “serious” attitude. Tagging with O’Malley is none other than that old guy with the bad eyes, Gideon Malice. Now, Wreckingball knows he can't take Malice lightly. He has a lot of experience, wisdom and for being as old as dirt, Malice is in great shape. Wreckingball always hears Gideon say that he is wise and knows everything, well if that’s true then he should know that he and O’Malley don’t stand a chance on January 29th!
Across the ring you have the tag team of Victorious Secret. Now, I’ve had my eye on these two guys for quite some time. Don’t let their appearance fool you, these two queens can go! They have a real unique style of offense and they are quickly becoming one of the most popular tag teams on the CLASH roster.
Then you have The H3RD. Myself, Dragon Kreed, Hakeem Zane and “Swagg Star” Dave Manzo have been at war with The H3RD since August and the next battle takes place at Seize The Day IV. Representing The H3RD is Austin Manix and Donnie Hollows. Manix loves to brag about how he has pinned both myself and Dragon Kreed in the past two months. You know what? He’s right. Manix has pinned me once, he’s pinned Kreed once, but ONCE is the key word. I can’t even remember the number of times Dragon and I have beaten Manix, too many to count!
Wreckingball knows it’s The H3RDs plan to win all their matches at Seize The Day but that is not going to happen. Wreckingforce, Zane and Manzo are going to deliver a devastating blow to Tommy Treznik's "Schematic" and leave The H3RD 0-3 at Seize The Day IV!
On January 29th, WreckingBALL will not repeat history, WreckingFORCE will make history. WB
CLASH Blog: "Mad Scientist" Tommy Treznik (1/24/11)
One Resolution That Shall Not Be Broken
It has been discussed in previous correspondence that autumn is the favorite season of your Mad Scientist. Why? "Longer nights make for more time to research, more time to experiment, MORE TIME TO CREATE!" I've been quoted.
Knowing this, an inquisitive mind could then hypothesize that if Tommy Treznik favors autumn because it's longer nights allow more time to research, create and experiment, then he shall enjoy winter moreso, for the reason that it's day is most dark.
A sound hypothesis? Without question. Probable? Yes. Possible? Double yes. Despite this, our aforementioned hypothesis is far from true, in fact Tommy Treznik hates winter! Why?
Quite simply, your Mad Scientist loathes Seize The Day! Rare is the occasion that Tommy Treznik allows one singular event to shape his thoughts on an entire season, but Seize The Day is the exception to the rule!
Despite sharing the same month of birth as CLASH Wrestling's annual event, Tommy Treznik has little reason to celebrate come January when Seize The Day rolls around. One needs to look no further than history books for his reasoning!
Seize The Day I, Tommy Treznik is pinned by Cameron Skyy and loses a CLASH Championship Match. Seize The Day II, Tommy Treznik is pinned by Gavin Quinn and loses a CLASH Tag Team Championship Match. Seize The Day III, Tommy Treznik is pinned by Tyler Elkins and loses a CLASH Championship Match. In conclusion, Tommy Treznik has NEVER SEIZED THE DAY AT SEIZE THE DAY!
Thankfully, Tommy Treznik has evolved - SMARTER, STRONGER, SUPERIOR IN EVERY WAY IMAGINABLE! The unsuccessful and directionless man I once was no longer exists! Standing in his wake is A VISIONARY! AN INVENTOR! A SCIENTIST!
At the Seize The Day IV, I shall ascend a ladder, retrieve my antidote and pour it down Dave Manzo's throat. As it's contents coarse through Dave Manzo's veins, any semblance of "super strength" will be washed away from his body! In that moment, so will wash away any memory of the unsuccessful man I once was! On January 29th, all will be in agreement that the "Mad Scientist" Tommy Treznik UNQUESTIONABLY AND UNEQUIVOCALLY did what he set out to do, that is SEIZE THE DAY!
Perhaps then, I shall look at winter differently. Tommy Treznik
Carpe Diem. Seize The Day. An event that has brought yours truly much success in past years, including two title acquisitions. This year, it’s not about bringin’ the bling home to Vegas, but rather calling out a “Caveman,” who bluffed our fabricated friendship for well over a year. There was a time where this “Vegas Bad Boy” and the “Bare Foot Brawler” Tyler Elkins ascended to the top ranks of CLASH Wrestling, equally achieving the CLASH Championship, equally sustaining sidelining injuries, and equally making triumphant returns to the ring.
I’ve seen a lot of things in my life, but Tyler Elkins double crossing me at Divided We Fall was something I never saw coming. Perhaps I had lost my focus; perhaps the flashing lights of my Sin City Shades blinded me, or my umpteen wine celebrations blurred my vision from seeing Tyler Elkins for his true self. Nonetheless, being straddled by the Vegas Show Girls only ignite half the fire that you have now sparked…
Normally, when someone puts a mic under my chin, or I’m asked to share my thoughts with a CLASH Wrestling editor, I tell all that I hope you’re a bettin’ man and to point your chips in my direction. I still live by this motto Caveman, the only difference is there is no gamble to bet on at Seize The Day! It’s a sure thing with absolute certainty that the “Ace High” will deal you in a beating unparalleled to any you’ve ever received before… double down on that!
COLUMN: John Striker's Seize The Day IV Predictions!
Hello fans and welcome once again to the greatest thing to happen to CLASH Wrestling since the wrestling, Pillar to Post! As always, I am your venerable wordsmith, your stupefying luminary of belletristic erudition (Look it up kids, it’ll do you some good!), John Striker. Today’s Pillar to Post will, like the last star-studded edition, lack the familiar feel of a traditional Pillar to Post. Expand your minds and embrace the change.
This week, I’ll be predicting the winners to CLASH’s biggest event, Seize the Day IV. It’s worth repeating that I’m the only person this side of the Mason-Dixon line to correctly predict that Tyler Elkins would capture the CLASH Championship at last year's Seize The Day. I also am the foremost expert on “The Curse of the CLASH Championship” having first discovered the evil pattern and having researched it extensively. The bottom line: when I predict things, you’d better listen to what I have to say! Let’s take a look at the scheduled matches:
#1 Contenders Fatal Four Way: The H3RD vs. Sons of Sanity vs. Wreckingforce vs. Victorious Secret
This is a very tough match to call. The H3RD have the mastermind Tommy Treznik behind them. Sons Of Sanity (Malice & O’Malley) are looking to establish themselves as a tag team and stepping up at Seize the Day would really put them on the map. Wreckingforce was a great tag team in the past, and have the biggest two guys in CLASH Wrestling. Victorious Secret have been in the thick of the tag team division for some time now, and is a well established tag team in their own right. It’s a tough call, but I have to go with the team that has the most chance of "outside" assistance. Pick: H3RD via pinfall.
CLASH Tag Team Championship: Too Sweet Vs. Bump N’ Uglies
The Bump N’ Uglies have shown that they’re willing to do whatever it takes to win back those titles. They’ve turned their backs on the fans, their friends, and possibly even Mama Ugly. That being said, the Tag Team Champions are beyond red hot right now, and I don’t think they’re able to be extinguished yet. Pick: Too Sweet retains via pinfall.
Antidote Ladder Match: Tommy Treznik Vs. Dave Manzo
I’m not entirely sure how this match will work, but I don’t think that any amount of superhero strength will prevent Treznik from winning this one. Don’t get me wrong, I think Manzo is certainly capable of beating Treznik any night of the week, but just as in the tag team number one contender’s match, the H3RD will be in Treznik’s corner, ready to overcome anything Manzo can throw at them, including super strength. Pick: Tommy Treznik via forcing Manzo to drink the antidote.
Grudge Match: Tyler Elkins Vs. Cameron Skyy
This is the match I am personally most looking forward to seeing. These two have a rich and storied history. Friends, competitors, enemies, and it’s finally all coming to a head. Tyler Elkins has always been in Skyy’s shadow, an afterthought. It’s always been Cameron Skyy and HIS friend, Tyler Elkins, not Elkin’s friend Skyy. As great a competitor as Skyy is, he’s also more likely to show compassion for Elkins, a sympathy for the situation that their divergent paths have caused. Elkins will be fierce and determined. I’m picking the victory of the shadow over the man. Pick: “Caveman” Tyler Elkins via submission.
1 Year in the Making: Mena Libra Vs. Truth Martini
This match is going to be a huge disappointment to so many fans in CLASH Wrestling. That’s not to say that it won’t be entertaining, even competitive maybe, but people actually think that Mena Libra has a chance of defeating CLASH CEO Truth Martini. Sorry people, but reality, the truth, is going to set in at Seize the Day. While Mena has been an entertaining wrestler, and holds victories over several independent women wrestlers, she has only once stepped into the ring with someone as talented as Truth Martini. That match ended in GQ defeating her. Truth Martini is a world class athlete and a great wrestler. End of story. Pick: Truth Martini via pinfall.
CLASH Championship: X-Pac Vs. Gavin Quinn
Everyone’s psyched to see X-Pac at Seize the Day and I’m certainly looking forward to seeing the unique style and offense he brings with him. X-Pac has been everywhere and done it all. What he’s not going to be able to do, however, is defeat GQ. I know, you’re skeptical, but Quinn is CLASH Champion for a reason. He is on top of his game, and on top of the wrestling world. There’s no way I can imagine him letting himself lose that belt, yet alone to an “outsider”. Gavin Quinn is far too stubborn, and far too strong willed to let himself lose that belt. I am tempted to pick X-Pac via DQ or Count-Out, but I’m going to put my faith in our champion instead. Pick: Gavin Quinn via Pinfall.
So there you have it, it’s practically in stone. I’m never wrong, so why start now? If you think I’m wrong on any of these matches, you’ll have your chance to prove me wrong on Saturday the 29th. See you at Seize the Day IV! John Striker
