Wrestling fans had better fasten their seatbelts, because the stars of the ECCW/NWA are coming back to Princeton with a bill full of hot action.

On Thursday, August 26, the Canadian Heavyweight Title from the National Wrestling Alliance will be on the line at Princeton Arena when EZ Ryder, the current Canadian Heavyweight Champion, faces the former Canadian Heavyweight title holder Gorgeous Michelle Starr.

The other title match is for the Canadian Junior Heavyweight title and sees Tornado Tony Kozina take on Torch, the mysterious man behind the mask. Torch is the former title holder and wants to reclaim the glory that Kozina is defending.

Also on the bill are Dirty Dan Denton and Juggernaut, who tips the scales at a whopping 360 pounds. These two will be battling it out in the squared circle, which promoters hope will be able to fence in this contest of size and strength.

Lumberjack Bubba, from the ECCW, will be taking of Spyder, who represents the Canadian Cartel, in a battle of promotional warfare.

The ever-funky, high-flying antics of Disco Fury will be pitted against the smooth moves of Ladies Choice, who hopes to win the ladies hearts and crush his opponent in one fell swoop.

Both men are looking for a title shot and will take it to the rafters if necessary.

Tickets for this action-packed evening of battle are available at Pharmasave and the Princeton Arena at a cost of $10 for ringside action. All other seats will be sold at $8 a ticket.

When the stars of the ECCW storm into Princeton Arena on August 26th, they’ll be bringin in Ladies Choice (pictured at left) to steal your hearts. This studly grappler will be taking on the high fling antics of Disco Fury in a match guaranteed to reek of cheap cologne.
