At DEFY Wrestling’s debut event at a sold-out Hawthorne Theater, they announced that DEFY would be returning July 20th! The announcement was met with great excitement which was only amplified when it was announced that on July 20th the reigning DEFY and IMPACT World Champion Austin Aries would be granting Shane Strickland a rematch. This is the most anticipated match in recent Pacific Northwest history.
Back on April 13th Austin Aries made his first appearance in DEFY and put up his IMPACT World Championship against then DEFY Champion Shane Strickland in a title versus title match. The match was not without controversy, as at one point it appeared that Strickland had defeated Aries to win the IMPACT crown, only to have the referee that was inadvertently knocked down disqualify him. After multiple stoppages and re-starts, the dust settle to have Aries hand raised in victory.
More matches will be announced in the coming weeks, but do not hesitate as this event will sell out!
The event is 21 and over with ID and tickets can be purchased at or the Hawthorne Theater website.
