Fighting Back 2017 updated total and THANK YOU!

On August 12th, Fighting Back 7: Wrestling with Cancer took place.

In Ottawa, our annual wrestling event, brought together some of Canada (and America’s) best in independent talents all for the same cause, entertaining a packed house of some of wrestling’s best fans.

Around the world, our partners newLegacyInc held their two night 24 hour total, Royal Rumblethon – bringing together wrestling fans and gamers in a fun event in support of Fighting Back.

To everybody that bought a ticket to the live event, participated in an auction, or donated as part of the online stream, we THANK YOU.

Every year this show gets bigger, and bigger.  This event would have ended several years ago if it were not for all of you.  Thank you all so much.

Heading into this year’s event, there was a doubt that we would have been able to touch last year’s $37 000+ donation to the Canadian Cancer Society.   How could we?!  It was such a huge, once in a lifetime amount for our small event. On August 12th, we were pleased that somehow lightning struck twice, and we announced over $38 000 had been raised this year.  We announced that the total was “and counting”.   Well… it certainly did continue to rise! Over the last two weeks, we received some additional donations, and led to us holding off on our official announcement.

Today we are pleased to announce our 2017 grand total…

$44 230 for cumulative total of over $166 000 since 2011!

Until next year…. Thank you all!!!

#FightingBack7 – First Card details! Ticket On-Sale information!

In just over a month, Fighting Back: Wrestling with Cancer presents its seventh annual event, in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.

Since 2011, we have raise dover $120 000 for the Canadian Cancer Society, in memory of Phrank Morin.  Once again, this year, we aim to add substantially to that total.

Let’s get to the announcements…

First up… our Main Event. 

Ottawa fans need no introduction to “Speedball” Mike Bailey.  For nearly a decade he has won over all with his unique style, and never say die attitude.  He has gone toe-to-toe with the biggest, toughest, fastest, and most skilled of opponents, and has walked away successful, more often than not.   Building off of his foundation he built in the rings of Ottawa, he has moved on to great international success.

However, on August 12th, 2017, he faces an opponent who will be match-up like no other.

Making his Ottawa debut, a man with a MMA record of 10-6-0, including a successful career in the UFC, “Filthy” Tom Lawlor faces off with Bailey on August 12th.  

Over the last few months, Lawlor, like other fighters before him, has set his sights on professional wrestling success.  Having shown his love for the sport throughout his MMA days, Lawlor has taken to professional wrestling like a natural.  Combining his various combat disciplines to find success.  

This is SUPERFIGHT you will not want to miss!


Main Event

First Time Ever

“Filthy” Tom Lawlor
Vs.

For nearly two years, C*4 Champion, Mathieu St. Jacques has been nearly unstoppable.   He has overcome all challengers…  On August 12th, Mathieu St. Jacques has declared an open challenge, giving an opportunity to any challenger whom he has not stepped into the ring with before…

Stay tuned on this one!

Lastly for today, we are excited to announce that Fighting Back 7 will play host to an opening round match in the Powerbomb TV Independent Championship Tournament.   The tourney will see opening round matches take place all across North America, and we are pleased to be hosting an exciting battle in this tournament.

Making his debut, sort of, is Desean Pratt.  Pratt, formerly known as AMASIS, returns to Ottawa for the first time in several years, and has victory on his mind.

His opponent, a man who represented C*4 at Powerbomb TV’s “Break the Barrier” event last month, and heads into this battle with a home field advantage of sorts… “Dirty” Buxx Belmar!

Updated 2016 Grand Total!

Thank you all.   That’s as good a place to begin as any.

Last summer, all of us involved in Fighting Back were blown away when we somehow managed to raise nearly $25 000.   With that, we had our running total hit nearly $85 000.   The moment that total was announced, all eyes turned to this year, and our goal of raising $15 000, and topping $100 000 since 2011 in memory of Phrank Morin.

Based on the history of the event, that total seemed very reachable… However, it would be a lie to say that each year the preparation for the next Fighting Back event became more and more of a struggle.  And knowing this, nothing was a sure thing heading into 2016’s event.

As the year progressed, the event started to come together.  While funds were much tighter than any previous year’s event, all involved wouldn’t let that stand in the way of the event achieving its goal.

And now, all is said and done, and the 2016 edition of Fighting Back is in the history books… and somehow, despite the struggles of making it all happen, we have toppled our highest of goals.

Previously we announced a grand total of over $33 000.  Well, we have some to add to that, and we will get to that soon.

As is now annual tradition, now is the moment to give Thanks to all those who made this year happen, and helped us topple our previous total.

Obviously, thank you to all of the fans who have come out year, after year, and supported this event.  Without you, there is no way the Fighting Back event would have existed beyond a one year event.  Your support showed us that this event was important, and one that should become annual.

No words can properly give an adequate THANK YOU to newLegacyInc.  A community that has literally raised tens of thousands of dollars over the last couple of years for Fighting Back, and helped us top ourselves year after year.      The amount of money they raised is the only way we have been destroy goals year, after year.   Thank you to all involved and those behind the scenes who make it all happen.   We are forever grateful to have found a partnership with your amazing community.

Thank you to every wrestler, promoter, personality, and promotion, who used their platform to promote, raise funds and raise awareness for the Fighting Back cause.  We meant it when we said that this is a community effort.  Year after year, you all prove it.
Thank you.

With all of that said, who knows what 2017’s event will bring us to?   If this year showed us anything, it is that anything is possible!

And now, what you have all been waiting for…

With a couple dollars still trickling in, we’re very pleased to announce that the updated total for the 2016 edition of Fighting Back: Wrestling with Cancer is…

$37 000

 

2016 Thank YOu

Fighting Back 6 – Official Results
August 20, 2016
Ottawa Ontario
Referees: Bakais, Serge St. Denis, Gerry Hodges, and Benny

Pre-Show
* Izzie Deadyet won a 14 man battle royal.

Main Card
1 – C*4 Underground Champion, Viking, successfully defended his Championship against Kevin Blanchard, subbing for an injured Pinkie Sanchez.

2 – Deeno Benjamin managed to survive the 2016 Fighting Back Invitational, and was crowned the 2016 FBI Champion, last eliminating Gabriel Fuerza.  Also appearing in the match were Vanessa Kraven, Vaughn Vertigo, Decker Lockart, Mr. Jonathan Rukin, Velvet Jones, She-Nay-Nay, D-Man, and Pauly Platinum.

It should be noted that Michael Von Payton and Rahim Ali distracted Vanessa Kraven, leading to her elimination.

3 – In a match presented by InterSpecies Wrestling, Shitty pinned Addy Starr following a piledriver onto Lego.  As a result of the match, Addy Starr must retire from professional wrestling.

Following the match a tearful Addy Starr said and emotional goodbye to all of her fans.

4 – “MVP” Michael Von Payton and “Prince” Rahim Ali defeated “Superstar” Shayne Hawke and “PCP” Crazy F’n Manny.

Following the match, Vanessa Kraven emerged, and helped Manny and Hawke drop Ali through a table.

5 – In a highly competitive contest,  Space Monkey defeated Amasis.

6 – Franky the Mobster overcame “The Curse” Cecil Nyx and Dasher Hatfield in a highly entertaining three-way dance.

7- In an outstanding contest, “Speedball” Mike Bailey pinned Chavo Guerrero Jr. following a Green Tea Plunge.

The match saw both men give it their all, and had the entire audience on their feet for much of it.

Following the match, Chavo took a moment to speak to the audience and praised Bailey and the audience.

8 – In a high impact, and hard-hitting battle, C*4 Tag Team Champions, Stu Grayson and Thomas Dubois defeated C*4 Champion Mathieu St. Jacques and Evil Uno.

The finish came with Dubois delivered a tombstone piledriver to St. Jacques, after Stu punted the Champion in the head.

Thomas Dubois scored the fall and the win for his team.

Following the main event, as per annual tradition, the total amount raised was announced.  This year, Fighting Back: Wrestling with Cancer was pleased to announce that over $33 000 had come in!

We’ll be issuing a statement in the coming week or so with an updated total, and a full “Thank You” list, mentioning all the very important people and groups who helped make this happen.  For now, all of us, please accept our gratitude, for helping us not only hit our goal of over $100 000 on the fifth anniversary of Fighting Back, but totally destroying it and reaching over $115 000!
