By now of course you will probably all know that the new CCW Super 8 Champion is Keith Mathews! The Destroyer battled through three rounds of intense, brutal action, eventually seeing off the challenge of Ashton Richards who had been stalking and attacking him for the entire night.
For Ashton Richards of course, this night couldn't have had a worse outcome. The no-nonsense hardman had his eyes set on the Super 8 Cup since it's inception, even going to the extreme lengths of stealing it from former champion Syd Phillips and claiming it as his. This night was meant to be his, where he finally put to bed any questions of the Cup's ownership. What he clearly didn't take into account however was the indomitable spirit of the Destroyer!
We had some incredible matches once again and it's a real pleasure to know that CCW is gaining a reputation for our fun, unorthodox, lively, technical wrestling matches. This was borne out again with incredible action from the likes of Ry Lloyd, Big 50, Jonny Blaze and the reformed Ace Jordan - who once again got within touching distance of the Gold in CCW. The ex-Golden Embassy man made it all the way to the semi-final, showing a renewed vigour having shed the shackled of the Golden Embassy.
Jordan was involved in a great CCW moment when he grabbed the Mic and Super 8 Cup from me as I was about to award Keith Mathews the title and spoke of his own respect for the Destroyer and how his head had been turned around by the lure of gold by the Golden Embassy. It seems to me that we have the REAL Ace Jordan back, folks!
So, my congratulations go out to the (Michael Buffer style) NEW! SUPER 8 CHAMPION! The man known as Mr Bazinga, the former CCWA graduate, the master of the Bazinga Bomb, Keith the Destroyer Mathews!
As ever guys, keep it locked to our facebook, our twitter, and our official site which is www.conwycountywrestling.com! You'll get sick of me saying that!
CCW Will return on August 25th for the biggest, grandest spectacle in CCW! The BIG One: Chapter 3! This year is going to be nuts and one of those events where we look back in 50 years and reminisce! Can you tell I'm excited?
Thanks for reading and all the best!
