World Wrestling Council (WWC)

WWC returned to action last Saturday night with their weekly house show/TV taping at the “Pepín Cestero Arena” in Bayamón, PR A few things to note coming out of the show:

- Samuel Adams became the new WWC Jr. Heavyweight champion after defeating Rikochet.

- “The Precious One” Gilbert defeated Chicano with the help of “Big Daddy” Montes, thus regaining the WWC Puerto Rican Heavyweight title, which he had lost to Chicano at “Aniversario 41”.

- There was a non-advertised bonus tag team match, OT Fernández & Angel Cotto were facing “Los Bouncers” Bob & Bruno. During this match, OT Fernández was injured while attempting a high risk move. The night of the event was speculated that he could have injured his spine; however, after being taking out via stretcher and taken to the hospital, the doctors released him the next day and sent him home after all tests cleared him of such type injury. At this point it looks more like a “stinger” and OT is recuperating at home. He is scheduled to fly to Mexico this coming weekend to fulfill some obligations with his “La Franquicia” tag team partner JC Navarro. He has stated that he will wait and see how he feels by the end of the week before deciding if he makes the trip or not. Our most sincere best wishes of a speedy and full recovery go out to Fernández.

The action goes back this Saturday night to the “Pepín Cestero Arena” in Bayamón where the following matches have already been announced for their weekly house show/TV taping:

WWC Universal Heavyweight Title – Rematch
Carlito vs Mighty Ursus (c) w/ “El Magnate” Juan Manuel Ortega

Semi-Main Event
“Mr. Ray-tings” Ray González vs “Mystery Opponent” brought by “El Magnate” Juan Manuel Ortega

WWC Puerto Rico Heavyweight Title – Rematch
“El Chico Ilegal” Chicano vs “The Precious One” Gilbert (c) w/ “Big Daddy”

Box office at the “Pepín Cestero Arena” will open at 5:00PM the day of the show. Tickets for the show will be:

- General Admission - $10.00
- Children Under 10 Years Old - $5.00

The following has been announced by WWC on their Facebook fan page:

“Relieve all the emotion of the biggest event ever, Aniversario 41!!! Now available via ‘Video-On-Demand’ for a limited time at http://wwcppv.com for just $10.00. Play by play by José Herrera and ‘El Wizard’, plus WWC Backstage with Willie Urbina.”

As we noted last week, WWC has announced that they will be returning with an event to the “Rubén Rodríguez Coliseum” in Bayamón, PR. There are only two events that I can speculate that could take place at this historic venue: “LOCKOUT 2014” which should be happening sometime in mid-December; and “Euphoria 2015”, which is their first big event of the new year and is set to take place on Saturday January 3rd, 2015. Announced for that event is the match to determine who is the “Real King of Wrestling”, pinning “El Rey de la Lucha Libre” Chicky Starr and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler.
