Full SLAMTOWN Card revealed!

Full SLAMTOWN Card revealed!

The full reveal of Saturday, February 9th’s SLAMTOWN card has been revealed!


Rain, Snow or Shine - we will be bringing one of wrestling's biggest stars as John Hennigan, also known from his recent appearance on the hit CBS SURVIVOR: David vs Goliath show. Or his years exciting fans while working for WWE as John Morrison, or more recently as Johnny Mundo from El Rey Network's Lucha UndergroundJohnny Impact or even Johnny DEFY! John will be going one-on-one with wrestling's anti-superstar, Darby Allin. Darby has been tearing up the independent scene for months now and was highly impressive during his fight that spilled out all across the Hawthorne Theatre when he fought Shane Strickland last year. 

The DEFY World Champion, Artemis Spencer will be making his Portland debut as he puts his championship on the line against Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Friedman who goes by the name MJF had a very impressive 2018, and he has started 2019 with a bang by signing a contract with the newly formed All Elite Wrestling. These two men met last year during a six man tag team match in Seattle and since that moment have been urgently awaiting a singles match.

Also announced for February 9th may be the most anticipated match of the night. It's a match where both men have been extremely vocal about their dislike for one another. On one side of the ring we have "the Baddest Man in Wrestling," SCHAFF. On the other side we have veteran wrestler Hammerstone! Both of these men are heavy hitters, so if you're a fan of seeing heavyweights beat each other up this is the match for you!

A limited number of general admission tickets are still available at ticket link below!

DEFY WRESTLING RETURNS TO TACOMA’S TEMPLE THEATER

After last month’s successful debut in Tacoma, DEFY Wrestling makes its return to the City of Destiny. Thursday, August 3rd to the Temple Theater Grand Plaza Ballroom, at the Landmark Convention Center, 47 St Helens Ave, Tacoma WA 98402.

DEFY Wrestling’s return marks the start of a partnership with Mexico’s hottest promotion The Crash Lucha Libre. Legendary star of Mexico, and former WCW wrestler Konnan said, “working together with DEFY is a win-win for fans and the wrestlers!” This partnership will see the appearance of exciting international stars intent to make their mark on wrestling in the northwest. Included is the one and only Jack Evans, who dubs himself the “Prince of Parkland.” 

Evans born in Tacoma Washington, who was raised in Parkland left the northwest to become a major international star based out of Mexico and stars in the highly acclaimed Lucha Underground television show. This will be Evans first match in Tacoma in well over 10 years. He will be pitted against 2004 Olympian, the powerhouse Mr. Athletic Jeff Cobb!

Possibly the night's most anticipated match (and the main event) will see the newly crowned DEFY Champion, “King of Swerve” Shane Strickland against Lio Rush. A rematch between the men who in April had what many longtime fans called the best professional wrestling match they’ve ever seen live! Rush will attempt to capture the DEFY Championship and take it with him. This could be Lio Rush’s last independent match in the Northwest as he just signed a contract to compete with Vince McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment’s NXT brand

August 3rd will see the debut of Ring of Honor star, Flip Gordon. Gordon who has made a huge impression on the wrestling world will be taking on “the Puerto Rican Sensation” Mike Santiago. Also competing is Ave Rex and Sonico, Los Sexi Mexi’s. The Luchadores will compete with the tandem of Big Jack and Carl Cunningham.

Last month the women of DEFY had one of the most amazing matches of the evening. Hot off a tour of Japan, international star Cat Power will be making her DEFY Wrestling debut. Many other great local and international stars will be gracing the ring at the Temple Theater, you will not want to miss it!

The host and ring announcer for the evening will be 99.9 KISW’s Kevin Diers (Filling in for Steve Migs)!

DEFY at the Temple Theater is open to all ages event and will include a meet and greet with the wrestlers prior to the matches. Group rate tickets and sponsorship opportunities are also available.
