-- IZW closes out the year with a BANG as Chaotic Christmas comes to the Impact Arena and those watching on GFL.tv live on December 17. In the main event, IZW Heavyweight Champion, Jermaine Johnson, defends his title against #1 Contender, "The Real Deal" Aaron Neil.
Johnson has had a stranglehold on the belt for over a year, which he won by defeating Neil. For over 12 months, Neil has been chasing Johnson and trying to corner him into a match, where the two could square off one on one. After winning the Monsters Bash Battle Royal at Halloween Hangover, Neil will finally get that opportunity at Chaotic Christmas. But it won't be an easy task for Neil. Johnson has epitomized the meaning of a fighting champion as he has defended his title on almost a weekly basis for over 52 weeks straight. He's battled a "who's who" of the IZW roster and always found a way to retain the title.
"How does Aaron Neil feel when he's going into a matchup that he can't win and that I can't lose? This match is more important to me than to Aaron Neil. I don't care that he's been chasing this title for over a year. It's mine! The IZW title, the World Championship, it's all about meeeee," Johnson quipped.
But Neil poses a different challenge. At 6'2" and well over 300 lb, Neil's size is one variable that cannot be fully accounted for. Combine that with Neil's athleticism and it's almost an unbeatable combination. Neil will not wilt when the spotlight is one him as he has tons of big match experience against some of the sport's best, including battling former World Champions, Vader and Dusty Rhodes. A 10-year vet, there's nothing Neil hasn't done or seen firsthand and now he believes the time is right for him to once again become IZW Heavyweight Champion.
"I always have the IZW Championship at the forefront. That i the ultimate goal for anyone within the company. I'm one win away from reaching that goal and on December 17 at Chaotic Christmas I fully intend to capitalize on the opportunity. Johnson dropped the ball as champion; I'm here to pick up the slack," Neil said.
