Orin Veidt vs. Isami Sakuda
“The Dark Prophet” Orin Veidt is a rising deathmatch star among GCW. He has only recently begun making a name for himself in the larger deathmatch scene. His early deathmatch career began out of Milwaukee in ICW Wrestling. His stardom in GCW has recently taken off after an impressive light-tube deathmatch against Eric Ryan at GCW “The Last Ones Left”. Which arguably stole the show back in May. It earned him a spot in GCW’s Tournament of Survival this year. In a high profile matchup against Big Japan’s Deathmatch Heavyweight Champion Isami Kodaka nonetheless. At Slime Changer, Orin Veidt once again has consolidated an opportunity for some solid proving ground. By taking on another young rising star in . Some may remember Sakuda making his impressively bloody GCW debut at the Tournament of Survival against Takeda. Big Japan’s Toshiyuki Sakuda
Expect this matchup between Veidt and Sakuda to check all the marks for those salivating for some ultraviolence. Weapons and a good-sized bucket of blood loss. And a dash of fast-paced chain wrestling in the mix. Veidt’s mashup between luchador and brawling styles meets Sakuda’s mixed martial arts background.
Mance Warner vs Matthew Justice
Mance Warner enters this match in true underdog fashion. Taking on the juggernaut that is Matthew Justice. Warner has had a tremendous year, becoming a rising star in MLW. While establishing a popular following among wrestling fans around the country.
Mance has established a likable persona that connects with audiences as a simple man from the South. Whose greatest strength is his heart to overcome the odds. His personality is in a similar vein to classic stars as Terry Funk and the “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. These are men who didn’t fancy any particular strengths or talents in their arsenal. Their willpower and principles for working hard to achieve overcoming odds against opponents who seemingly had more advantages on the surface level. Mance Warner will once again have to prove his willpower can overcome the odds of Matthew Justice, a two-time AIW Intense Champion who has spread fear around the Midwest.
Justice comes off the heels of losing his championship match against Nick Gage last month at GCW “No Sleep.” Suffice to say, he is probably not in a good mood. And is looking to unleash hell on Warner. This match will be a classic showcase of David versus Goliath. As Justice’s strength clashes with the heart and willpower of Warner. Photo Chris Bey vs Tony Deppen
Chris Bey and Tony Deppen go head-to-head in what may be considered a dream match to some. Especially West Coast wrestling fans where Chris Bey has cemented his name loud and clear. Furthermore, it is largely untapped territory for Tony Deppen. A rising and well renowned east coast star and GCW mainstay. Tony Deppen is just starting to make inroads into the west side, having debuted for Oregon’s Prestige Wrestling a few weeks ago. Building up his career in Southern California’s wrestling promotions, including PCW Ultra, Bey’s name quickly grew. He recently won his third gold belt, becoming the Champion for Without A Cause (WAC). The growing wrestling promotion in the Greater Seattle area. Both Deppen and Bey are refined junior weight wrestlers with a lot of endurance. Deppen’s stubborn and cocky attitude often resembles a villainous version of Japanese spirit style wrestling. His unwillingness to concede defeat. By this, he often turns pain into energy as he ignites into blazing fury just when spectators assume he is out cold.
This should make for a long and enduring matchup between Deppen and Bey. By which they will take each other to their last possible breath, with little slowdown in between.
B-Boy vs Chris Dickinson
Chris Dickinson and his immense strength and size go head to head against B-Boy’s agility and speed. Both wrestlers have built their reputations on their toughness and intimidation, despite two different wrestling styles. B-Boy was a huge name in Combat Zone Wrestling about ten years ago. And he still wrestles for them sporadically today. He’s won their Best of the Best tournaments and is a former multi-time CZW World Heavyweight Champion. Dickinson is one of the hardest-hitting brutes among the independent scene today. As Dickinson has said so himself, some people are critical of his style for making the violence too aggressive at times. He lifts his victims with vicious strength and smashes them downward with even more power.
He flattens, clobbers and bludgeons his victims. And his style reflects that in its entirety. At Slime Language, one has to wonder whether we will see B-Boy crack under the aura of Dickinson’s relentless intimidation. Which would be a rare sight to behold for an uncompromising tough guy. Despite both wrestlers starting their careers around the same period in the early millennium, B-Boy’s career quickly took off. He became a big name in the indy circuits over a decade ago. Dickinson’s career has slowly simmered to a boiling point. Becoming one of the biggest names in independent wrestling today. And he will face off against one of yesterday’s biggest names in B-Boy. A clash of eras ensues here between two men who have both built their personas on playing the tough guy. Photo Effy vs Eddie Kingston
Effy has had to face his share of extremely intimidating tough guys as of lately in GCW. And at Slime Language is no different as the “Weapon of Sass Destruction” takes on Eddie Kingston. Kingston has left a path of destruction throughout his career. Consolidating championship titles from some of the most renowned leagues. Including Chikara, CZW, AAW, Jersey All-Pro, IWA Mid-South, and even Japan’s DDT Pro Wrestling.
In recent years, Kingston also teamed with Homicide, forming Outlaw Inc. Which is perhaps the most violent and ruthless tag team on the East Coast. The street thug in Eddie Kingston may have little patience for the outgoing and intentional sexual expression of Effy’s matches. The chemistry between these two wrestlers will certainly be experimented with. It may prove to be one of the most unpredictable mashups of the evening.
It would not be a GCW card without a Six-Way ScrambleF****! With every man for himself including some of GCW’s newest mainstay stars among their cruiserweight division. This includes Jordan Oliver, Alex Zane, Blake Christian, Eli Everfly, Arez and even the “Prince of American Hardcore” himself, Jimmy Lloyd. And a dash of comedy is always expected on a GCW card, and that box is certainly checked with Kikutaro taking on the semi-retired Human Tornado.
If you can not make it to the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Los Angeles for this stellar card, catch Slime Language on Fite.TV and settle in for joy ride this Friday night as the action airs live.
