February 6, 2012 · Print This Article
The Contenders Cup debuted last February, pitting six of the top competitors of CLASH Wrestling in an Elimination Match with the winner recieving the Contenders Cup Trophy & #1 Contendership to the CLASH Championship. On February 25th this new CLASH tradition continues and we at CLASHWRESTLING.COM have learned of the six competitors who will square off in the 2012 incarnation of the match.
Fresh off a Match Of The Year performance at Seize The Day V, the “Murderous Monk” J. Miller was awarded entry into the 2012 Contenders Cup Match. While Miller was not successful in his championship quest on January 21st, he wasn’t the man pinned either. A victory in the 2012 Contenders Cup would propel the former CLASH Champion right back into title contention.
The only multiple time CLASH Champion in history, Cameron Skyy has already proclaimed 2012 to be the year he climbs back atop the CLASH mountain. At Seize The Day V, Skyy ditched his former mentor N8 Mattson and used underhanded tactics to defeat Jimmy Yang Wang. While both acts may be seen as treacherous, they certainly have allowed Skyy a ton of momentum going into the 2012 Contenders Cup Match.
In recent months, Dragon Greed’s ego has grown to match the size of his bank account. Since being hired as CLASH CEO Truth Martini’s accomplice, Greed has made it a point to let everyone know that what he wants, he gets. Victorious over rival Dave Manzo at Seize The Day V, the former CLASH Champion has now set his sights on winning the 2012 Contenders Cup Match.
2011 was a landmark year for the Caveman, as Tyler Elkins defeated numerous competitors and was victorious in the first (and only) Steel Cage Match in CLASH Wrestling history. While 2012 may have gotten off to a rocky start with his loss to Wreckingball at Seize The Day V, a victory in the 2012 Contenders Cup Match would instantly get the Caveman back on track to reclaiming the CLASH Championship he once held.
While he may not be a former CLASH Champion like the four men above, Shark Boy is a world traveled competitor & veteran of the sport. In his travels (both by land & by sea) Shark Boy has stopped by CLASH before and was involved in last year’s inaugural Contenders Cup. When asked if he would like a second chance at becoming #1 Contender to the CLASH Championship, Shark Boy responded the only way he knows how, “OH SHELL YEAH!”
The 2012 Contenders Cup Match has an element of mystery as the sixth and final competitor will not be announced until Saturday night, February 25th. Word around the water cooler is that accomplice to the CLASH CEO Dragon Greed has drawn up an iron clad contract that he plans to present to the mystery entrant live & in person at the Contenders Cup event.
Six competitors: four of them former CLASH Champions, one a world renowned veteran and another a complete mystery. Who will walk out the winner of the 2012 Contenders Cup? Who will be the new #1 contender to the coveted CLASH Championship? There’s only one way to find out! Join us for our new February tradition, the CONTENDERS CUP on FEBRUARY 25TH!
