And then there were three.
Three shows that is.
Some of you may remember a post I made a month or so ago about Squared Circle Wrestling, or 2CW as it is really known. The post talked about the company deciding to close its doors and go out on top.
Many fans are still in a state of disbelief, but one thing is for sure – 2CW isn’t cashing it in for its final shows – it’s working to go out the only way fans would expect: with amazing shows filled with talented workers and great matchups.
The first of the final four shows was held in Watertown on Nov. 29. Watertown was a great leadoff to the final shows. There was great action and a lot of moments. There was magic.
Anybody who watched John Morrison vs. Matt Cross vs. Johnny Gargano will remember that match for a long time, that’s for sure. Amazing.
And Sami Callihan returning? Incredible moment. And though I may not have liked the result, it shows that 2CW can still pull people in, make them believe, make them appreciate, and make them realize how special these cards are.
The names coming to the final three shows will be awesome. I am excited to see the matches and be part of the crowd to watch these events.
Three and done.
Binghamton on Dec. 17.
Elmira on Dec. 18.
Syracuse for Dec. 20.
Then, that’s it. Just like that. I’m hitting up all three, which will give me 30 shows I’ve attended since I started following them in 2010. I wouldn’t miss these shows, that’s for sure.
For those of you going to the final shows, do your best to support this company. Check out the merchandise still available. Visit the tables where the wrestlers are. Thank people.
Oh, and there’s also a final magazine for the events. It’s more than 50 pages of stories and photos and history about 2CW. I had the honor to be the editor and designer for this magazine, so I hope fans find this to be something they can keep for many years to remember how great 2CW was.
I know it was one of the most challenging items I’ve worked on, but at the same time quite rewarding. I think it came out well, but I am nervous and excited to see the final product.
Watertown, though, was a great opener. Good action, some interesting results, a new champ heading into the final three shows. Binghamton, Elmira and Syracuse – get ready for some awesome action. All three shows will no doubt be something to remember.
It’ll be a fun three shows to watch. There will likely be some sad times, but it will still be an incredible time.
Bring on the final three!
