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!

#FightingBack6 – This is the End! InterSpecies Wrestling rivals collide for the LAST time!

#FightingBack6 – This is the End!  InterSpecies Wrestling rivals collide for the LAST time!

The following message was sent to us by our friends at InterSpecies Wrestling….

Quote
There have been several rivalries over the course of Inter Species Wrestling’s 11 year history,but very few have ever been as brutal as the one involving Addy Starr and the man known simply as “Shitty“.   

Shitty, under the control of Moohammad thecTerrorist Cow, took exception to a female competitor stepping into the ring against males – and waged an all-out war against Addy – attacking her at several shows, usually using piles of the ever dangerous children’s toy Lego as a weapon.  This lead to a brutal fans bring the Lego Deathmatch between the two, in which they repeatedly slammed eachother on thousands of Lego pieces.  Shitty was victorious, nailing a rolling senton off the top onto Starr, who was sandwiched between piles of blocks.

https://youtu.be/HLA9OcGdYe4

The feud ended there, or so we thought.  When Inter Species Wrestling announced that they’d be holding another Lego Deathmatch to crown the inaugural “King of Crazy” a year later – the two veterans of the stipulation threw their names into the mix (along with Danny Havoc and Pinkie Sanchez).  When the match began, it was evident that there was no love lost between them.  Bodies were slammed onto even more blocks than the previous year, and Shitty suffered a serious injury.  One that kept him from becoming a champion, which he’s blamed on Addy since that day.  Addy’s career, however, has flourished – making a mark in the UK (where she has resided since that encounter), and winning title belts – including the aforementioned King of Crazy title.

On Saturday, August 20 – These two heated rivals will be in the same building for the first time in a long while, ready to face off one more time…for the last time.


 “El Presidente” Mike Rotch



There you have it…  A rivalry for the ages comes to an end on August 20th.  Do not miss this!

#FightingBack6 – Double Main Event announcement!

We’re just over a month away from the SIXTH ANNUAL Fighting Back: Wrestling with Cancer event!

Over the last five years this event has provided countless memorable moments, and this year’s event will no doubt do just the same.  Familiar faces to local fans, new ones, and everything in between.  This night is a celebration of the local wrestling community – and one that sees all of us come together to make a difference in memory of Phrank Morin, and other loved ones.

On August 20th, we look to add to our huge running total of $86 000 donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Right now we have our huge DOUBLE MAIN EVENT announcement!

Our first Main Event will see four men who are very familiar with one another.  You will see both the C*4 Champion and the C*4 Tag Team Champions all in one match-up.  

Based on history alone, this is one that you will not want to miss.  Two of the most successful tag teams in the country will go head to head – but with a twist…   Don’t miss this one!

Main Event #1
Special Challenge Tag Team Match
C*4 Champion

Mathieu St. Jacques
&

Last month, we announced that Chavo Guerrero Jr would be our special guest at this year’s Fighting Back event.  Following in the tradition of the likes of Ultimo Dragon, Paul London, and other past special guests, Guerrero is perhaps best known for his contributions to the cruiserweight division in various promotions.

Today, he is best known for his role in Lucha Underground, and Mexico’s AAA promotion.

With his history and present in mind, we are very pleased to announce the co-main event of #FightingBack6…

#FightingBack5 – THANK YOU! Updated total!

Wow… Where to even begin?

Fighting Back 5 is in the history books (and results will eventually be released, sorry about that), and I think everybody involved is still riding high.

Once again, a worldwide community came together once again, to celebrate Phrank Morin, and other loved ones who have battled Cancer.

Once again, talent from around the world came to Ottawa, to partake in our annual event, and give their all for some of the best fans around.

Once again, tears of joy filled the eyes of many people when another record setting total of donations were announced at the end of the night.

To try and thank everybody who made this year’s Fighting Back the biggest one yet would be impossible. So briefly, let me just touch on a few groups of people who made this event possible.

If you’re a wrestling fan who supported any one of the promotions involved in #FightingBack5 in the last year, and donated in one way or another to this year’s event costs, THANK YOU. The giving that you all did, once again allowed for Fighting Back to take place, in the 100% for charity manner that it does.

If you watched, donated, or participated in anyway with newLEGACYinc’s insanity-filled 24-hours stream that started on August 14th, THANK YOU.   Additional thanks to GameBox and friends, and those who participated in their kick-off streaming session on August 13th.

The community that makes up newLEGACYinc is truly a partner in Fighting Back, and we look forward to hopefully working together in the future, and continuing to shatter records and expectations. We’ve got big goals for 2016 already, and with your partnership, anything is possible!

Finally, if you participated in #FightingBack5, and gave your time and energy to help make this event happen, whether in the ring, or behind the scenes, THANK YOU.   We couldn’t have done this without you. We couldn’t have done this without all of you. Thanks to the promotions that helped raise money throughout the year, all of them. Thanks to the staff who collected funds. Thanks to the donations collected and auctioned off. Thank you all!

Without further ado, we are pleased to announce #FightingBack5’s grand total…

Once every dollar tallied, and final coin counted, we are pleased to announce that we have raised $24, 735!

Nearly $85,000 total raised since 2011!  Truly mind-blowing.  Just amazing.  You are all amazing.  Thank you all so much.

#FIGHTINGBACK5 – TOMORROW NIGHT! Fighting Back Invitational Full list of participants and details! Pre-Show Bonus Action!

We are just over 24 hours away from the fifth annual Fighting Back: Wrestling with Cancer event!

In 2011, when this event first started, none of us involved could have ever imagined that in four years, we would be looking at a standing total of $60,000, and a worldwide enthusiasm and support. On Saturday night, we are excited to celebrate #FIGHTINGBACK5, and once again raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society, in memory of Phrank Morin.

This being the fifth annual event, is the most staked one yet. Right now we are going to overstuff things, and give some final notes to round out the card!

As announced earlier this week, we released 15 names for the 2015 edition of the “Fighting Back Invitational”. We incorrectly announced that those names were the complete list of participants! We made an error…

In addition to those 15 men and women competing in this year’s FBI, we can add one more. Making his Fighting Back debut, the “Bad Boy”, Joey Janela will be competing!

At this time we will explain the format of the 2015 FBI…

This year will see an opening round consisting of two (2) opening round matches, which will each be a four (4) corner tag team match, featuring teams made-up of randomly selected partners. So, four teams, in each opening round match, will compete in a single-fall, scramble.

The winning pairs from the first two matches will go into a sudden-death, four-corner, singles, scramble. The person to score the first fall in the finals will be the 2015 FBI Champion!

Tabarnak De Team
