CZW, EVOLVE/Dragon Gate USA, and CHIKARA Pro Wrestling will need to find new permanent homes for at least the foreseeable future.
They are still searching for a permament home in the Philadelphia market. If you think you know of one, e-mail DJ Hyde at email@example.com .
CHIKARA's previously announced February ECW Arena show has been removed from their website. They have no Philadelphia area events listed on their website, and there is no mention of the annual King of Trios weekend, which had been held at the ECW Arena for the last several years. They have not responded to e-mails sent to them asking about this thus far.
There is also no word regarding a Philadelphia venue for EVOLVE or Dragon Gate USA shows.
So...now to at least some positive news.
CZW, at least, has taken some positive steps forward toward securing venues for the next two months. Here is the release they sent regarding their venues for the next two months:
February - On Saturday, February 11th, CZW will present its 13th anniversary event at the Flyers Skate Zone. This venue is located at 601 Laurel Oak Road in Voorhees, NJ (approx. 25 mins. from the Arena). This will be a homecoming of sorts for the Combat Zone, CZW was founded in the Garden State. This event is also part of a huge weekend for the Combat Zone as CZW will be appearing at the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention at the PA Convention Center in Center City from Feb. 10th - 12th. Complete directions to the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees are listed below. Complete venue information can be found at voorhees.flyersskatezone.com. Drew Gulak will compete in a match for the CZW World Championship against whoever the CZW World Champion is after our Indianapolis event on February 4th.
Venue address: The Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone at Voorhees, 601 Laurel Oak Road, Voorhees, NJ 08043
From I-95: Take the Walt Whitman Bridge into New Jersey. Stay on Rt. 42 South. Exit onto I-295 North. (Second exit from bridge) Take I-295 North to Exit 32 (Haddonfield/ Voorhees). Make a right off of the exit onto Haddonfield-Berlin Road. Follow several miles to Laurel Oak Road. (Just past the Eagle Shopping Plaza). Make a right onto Laurel Oak Road. Facility is ¼ mile on the left. (Across from the rear of the Ritz Theatre)
From NJ Turnpike: Exit turnpike at Exit 4. Follow signs to Rt. 73 North. Take Route 73 North and exit onto I-295 South. Take I-295 South to Exit 32 (Haddonfield/ Voorhees). Make a left onto Haddonfield-Berlin Road. Follow several miles to Laurel Oak Road. (Just past the Eagle Shopping Plaza). Make a right onto Laurel Oak Road. Facility is ¼ mile on the left. (Across from the rear of the Ritz Theatre)
March - On Saturday, March 10th, CZW will be live at the Boyle's World Gym located at 11000 Roosevelt Blvd # 19 in Northeast Philadelphia (approx. 30 minutes from the Arena, and is on the Boulevard between Red Lion and Woodhaven Roads). This is also another huge weekend for the Combat Zone as CZW will be appearing at MonsterMania Con 21 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ from March 9th - 11th. Complete information about Boyle's World Gym can be found at
Non-drivers will probably need to find a way over to the show. or take PATCO to Lindenwold station and take a cab ride to the venue, as NJ Transit buses are fairly infrequent on weekends, and the venue is two bus connections away from the Lindenwold PATCO station.
March's show can easily be reached by SEPTA by the 14 bus.
Until next time...
