Press Release: Details On DEFY Wrestling’s 2nd Anniversary This Saturday

Final details on DEFY Wrestling’s 2nd Anniversary!

This Saturday, DEFY Wrestling will be back at Washington Hall in Seattle for their 2nd Anniversary, ‘DEFY Never Dies’.

The Chairshot was issued the following press release today by Matt Farmer with all of the details ahead of the event which features Shane Strickland, Dezmond Xavier and more:

January 19th DEFY Never Dies comes to Seattle’s Washington Hall to celebrate it’s 2nd anniversary. Over the course of two years DEFY Wrestling has exploded in popularity, hosting events across the region. We have seen some of wrestling’s biggest stars compete inside a DEFY ring, proving to be one of the premier wrestling organizations in the world and it is based in the Pacific Northwest!

New DEFY World Champion Artemis Spencer will put his championship on the line as he defends against IMPACT Wrestling star Dezmond Xavier. Artemis defeated former champion Shane Strickland last month in what voters called 2018’s Match of the Year, and had the loudest reaction reminisce of “Beast Quake” from the 2011 NFC Wild Card game! This will be a major challenge for the new champion as Xavier is one of the industries fastest rising international stars.

Three of DEFY Wrestling’s more popular wrestlers, former champion “Swerve” Shane Strickland, “the Weirdo Hero” Randy Myers, and the “Baddest Man in Wrestling” SCHAFF will join forces. They will be representing DEFY Wrestling as they take on the veteran team and All Elite Wrestling stars Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky. Collectively known as SoCal Uncensored or simply referred to as S C U!

DEFY Never Dies will see the debut of Australian sensation Robbie Eagles as he battles “Classic” Cody Chhun. Chhun has impressed fans with his unique style of wrestling, and he’ll need to be at his best to defeat Eagles who has recently competed in such promotions as New Japan Pro Wrestling, PWG and World Series of Wrestling.

Many more exciting matches will take place including DEFY Tag Team Champions Amerikan Gunz taking on Jorel Nelson and Royce Isaacs, collectively known as One Percent!

Fans will also get to witness one of wrestling’s more dynamic matches with the second annual DEFY TO SURVIVE match. D2S is a blind draw, ten man, elimination match, where if the winning team has more than one member remaining are forced to face off until one participant remains. We have seen from last years D2S the winner can put that competitor on a direct trajectory to a top spot in DEFY Wrestling as last years winner is current DEFY World Champion Artemis Spencer!
