I've never been to Tudor hall. They look to be located near Hunt Club and Riverside.

Does anyone know how well they're set up to handle wrestling? According to their web site, they can handle events from 50 to 1000 people, but do they have higher ceilings? (It would be nice if they could use the taller ring, especially if its a larger crowd). And what type of food concessions will there be? Will proceeds from food/drink also go to charity?

Post by: Fighting-Back on June 20, 2011, 07:37:11 PM
The venue is in the South end of the city, very simple to get to, and just off of Riverside and Huntclub.

The Hall is very large, and as such a ring of an 8' high, standard sized ring will be used.  We are working closely with the venue to make sure the show is a successful one for all involved.

Concessions will be available.   The venue is a sponsor for the event, and is helping us out greatly.

They are pretty much right at the corner of Riverside and Uplands.  Turn onto Uplands from Riverside and then take the first right and you're at the place.  Don't try to come through the golf course entry off Hunt Club because the road is cut off from Tudor Hall that way, you have to come around via Uplands.

Here's a random question....

How will you be treating the heels during this show?

Normally, I boo heels at the show. Its not that I dislike wrestlers like (for example) the Hollywood Hunks; They put a good effort in and are often more entertaining than the faces. I just recognize that their roll is that of the villain, so I respond accordingly. (I'm assuming the wrestlers playing the heels actually like the negative reactions, over the alternative of silence.)

But at a charity show such as Fighting Back, it somehow seems wrong to boo anyone.

FIGHTING BACK!  Double Main Event!
In one month from now, professional wrestling talent from Ottawa and Montreal (and elsewhere) will come together for two important reasons:  Firstly, they will be doing so to honour the spirit and memory of a friend, college and inspiration – Francois “Phrank” Morin.

Secondly, they will stand up to the horrible disease that took Phrank’s life all too early – and attempt to raise as much money possible for the Canadian Cancer Society, in Phrank’s name.

On August 12th, 2011 – we are all FIGHTING BACK.

Now, let’s get right to it.  Two huge main events set for this event… and here they are!

Ottawa’s biggest home-grown talents, and arguably Canada’s top tag team – The Super Smash Brothers, C*4 Champion “Player Dos” Stupefied and Player Uno – will be in action.   The duo, who broke into the wrestling business along side Morin were also two of his best friends outside of the ring.   On August 12th, they will pair up once again in honour of their friend.

The Super Smash Brothers will be facing off a tag team which has quickly become a top tandem in the Ottawa area.  They will be facing off against two men who are looking to take that claim of “Canada’s top tag team”.  That team is the current C*4 Tag Team Champions, “Mr. Wrestling” Kevin Steen and “Speedball” Mike Bailey.

This first time ever tag team match will no doubt be a match of the year candidate, and one that any true wrestling fan will not want to miss!

Main Event #1
C*4 Tag Team Champions
“Mr. Wrestling” Kevin Steen & “Speedball” Mike Bailey
Vs.
The Super Smash Brothers
 (C*4 Champion -“Player Dos” Stupefied & Player Uno)

Our second half of the huge double-main event will see a local who feels he is a living legend, against a hardcore icon.

As previously announced, Fighting Back is privileged to welcome former WWE, ECW, and TNA superstar TOMMY DREAMER to Ottawa!

Dreamer has told Fighting Back match-makers that he is ready for anybody who is willing to step into the ring with him.  Never shy of a challenge, Dreamer made a name for himself facing any and all opponents.

On August 12th, Dreamer will face off with a man whom much the same as him, who has made a reputation to taking on all opponents. 

When it comes to the list of top Ottawa stars, somewhere near the top, if not right on top sits “MVP” Michael Von Payton.   Von Payton, whether he is cheered or booed, has always been ready to take on “visiting” stars.   

On August 12th, Von Payton will square off with Dreamer, for the first time ever.  Will Von Payton further cement his stature in Ottawa as “the top star”, or will Dreamer knock MVP’s ego in check?

Main Event #2
Special Challenge
“MVP” Michael Von Payton
Vs.
Tommy Dreamer

Hey everybody,
First thing is first - a huge THANK YOU to everybody who generously donated to Inter Species Wrestling.  A final tally will be released shortly by ISW, but I can say this, without their support, this event would not be happening.

Next up - tickets will become available this weekend.  For those who want first crack at VIP tickets, make sure you come out to Acclaim's STAR-MAGEDDON (http://c4wrestling.com/community/general-wrestling-discussion/acclaim-pro-wrestling-presents-star-mageddon (http://c4wrestling.com/community/general-wrestling-discussion/acclaim-pro-wrestling-presents-star-mageddon)!-saturday-july-30th-2011!)  As stated previously, only a limited number of VIP tickets will be available, as they will be numbered for reserved front row seating.

Finally, sorry for the delay in match announcements - several exciting things are being worked on - and we will have a major card update in the next week!

FIGHTING BACK – FULL CARD!
With less than two weeks to go until the most important night in the history of Ottawa professional wrestling. 

Without further ado, we have a whole lot of HUGE action to announce for August 12th’s mega event.  Including the announcement of two huge International Superstars, several big returns to the Ottawa region, and to pro wrestling in general! 


The promotion from which Stinky the Homeless guy was born, and had some of his biggest matches, Inter-Species Wrestling, presents a huge match at “Fighting Back” Wrestling with Cancer”.

A Four-Corner match-up featuring four ISW favourites, including the 2011 Burger King of the Ring...

ISW returns to the Ottawa region with this exciting match-up!

El Hijo Del Bamboo, everybody’s favourite wrestling Panda, and recent Burger King of the Ring tournament winner, faces his first challenge on August 12th.

His opponents will be…

Beef Wellington, well known to Ottawa fans and a mainstay since day 1 in Inter Species Wrestling – will be in action.

Next up, ISW’s undead warrior, Izzie Deadyet will shamble into action on August 12th.  Izzie is certainly looking to take a bite of his competition.

Finally, a relative new-comer to ISW, Bastian Snow, will be in at “Fighting Back”.  Snow will be making his first appearance in Ottawa, and no doubt, this crustacean is looking to claw out a big win.

Next up – a HUGE FIRST TIME EVER singles encounter between two of the hardest hitting competitors in all of professional wrestling!

Competing in this mega-match-up will be:

“Unbreakable” Michael Elgin, who is well known in the Ottawa region, and has a loyal following – has told Fighting-Back that he will be present on August 12th, ready to compete for a good cause.

His opponent… Making an ultra-rare Canadian Appearance, former WWE Superstar, and winner of NXT Season 2, as well TNA X-Division star,  ROH main-eventer, and world-wide competitor – The World Warrior, LOW-KI!  Known by many names, Kaval, Senshi, and LOW-KI, there is no denying, he is one of the best in the world!

For those unfamiliar with LOW-KI, take a look at his hard hitting, one of a kind style below:

International Dream Match

Vs.

Speaking of International Superstars, nCw Femmes Fatales presents a huge Ottawa-area debut in a three-way dance, featuring two of the regions top competitors.

Best known for kicking ass in Inter-Species Wrestling - the woman who never backs down from a fight, Addy Starr – will be in action at Fighting Back on August 12th.   Starr is best known for her hardcore style and will certainly be bringing the fight in less than two weeks!

Starr will be joined in action with SHIMMER superstar, and local talent, Portia Perez!  Portia started years ago competing in Ottawa, and has since traveled around the world, and has become known as one of the very best.

Speaking of the very best – when it comes to women’s wrestling – there are a couple of names who certainly belong near the top.  Making her Ottawa debut, former TNA competitor, and a true International superstar – Cheerleader Melissa comes to Fighting Back!

To check out some of Melissa in action:

Next up a very big tag team match – featuring the reunion of one of Montreal’s best tag teams...

On one side of the ring will stand a team that Ottawa is very familiar with – Shane Matthews and “Jagged” Scott Parker – 2.O

They will face off with a team with whom they are very familiar with – if Ottawa fans are not.

First, local favourite and one-half of The Wolfmun, Twiggy!  Twiggy is looking for a big tag team win against long-time rivals – Matthews and Parker.

For this match, Twiggy has recruited and brought out of retirement, his former long time tag team partner… Pornstar Juan!

Juan has not been seen in action in several years, but is coming out of retirement for this special cause, and this special match!

Special Challenge Tag Team Match
Twiggy & Pornstar Juan
Vs.
2. O
(Shane Matthews & “Jagged” Scott Parker)

Next up a sure to be exciting Six-Man Tag Team Match!
On one side, two of Ottawa’s most hated competitors lead a team into battle. 

“Prince of Persia” Rahim Ali and “Charming” Chaz Lovely, no strangers to Ottawa fans, will be walking into action on August 12th.  Ali and Lovely have told Fighting Back match-makers that they have a partner, and will reveal it on August 12th.

Facing off with Ali and Chaz, will be a very familiar face to his opponents and local fans – Jae Rukin.

Rukin will be teaming with two men who Ottawa fans have only seen a little bit of – but certainly have a lot to show – “Surf’s Up” Johnny Wave and Alex Vega.

This match will be one fans will not want to miss!

Lastly, rounding out that card will be a huge match-up – featuring many local favourites!  Featuring some of Ottawa area’s most popular from the present and the past.   On August 12th, Fighting Back presents the “Fighting Back Invitational Battle Royal”

“Fighting Back Invitational” Battle Royal
Featuring:
The Incredible Hunks (Deeno & Cheeky), Trey Humongous, Thunder, Tyler Logan, Cecil Nyx, Derric Hamilton, Roy Stevens, The Rush, “Prodigy” Zack Storm,  and many more!

I would like to thank C*4 management and all the workers for a great night of entertainment.

I'd like to take the time to thank EVERYBODY involved in this memorable night!

I felt EXTREMELY blessed to have been a part of this AWESOME night!

Last night's roller coaster ride of emotions I had expected, but the generosity, love and energy level I did not.

I must say, in my 20 yrs + of mc'ing, public speaking, ring announcing this ranks in my top 5 most difficult events. I fought my emotions all night, but I got through it and I have the fans, all involved, and Phrank to thank for that. A DVD I will buy and will be kept in my secret place of "Feel Good" things that I go to when times are tough in my life.

There was a magical feeling last night that doesn't come very often in ones lifetime. Phrank was a special person to all who had the chance to be in his presence no matter how small or how long.

He will always be in everyone's hearts that he's touched in his short time on this earth!

As in Marie-Andre's last sentence of her letter last night said:

Remember him....remember him.....

Agreed.  I think everyone should grab a copy of this DVD for their library.

In addition, maybe... just maybe...the idea of making this an annual event should be looked into.

Count us in if there is DVD. Something like last Friday night needs to be watched over and again (perhaps with some of the DVD profits going to fight cancer?).

Already growing my hair out.

We were able to raise about $1500 to fund the show off of head shaving alone this year.

Who is with me in this for 2012?

Let's make a pledge to do this right here.

Gotta save what hair I have or else. I'm willing to help/donate and I'm sure Hélène is too, RK.

I'll give it a go, but I don't think a year of what little hair I have is worth 2 shits.

Had a great time. It would be great if this became an annual event.

I'll consider shaving my head for it.
