The Poughkeepsie Journal featured a great piece on Tommy Dreamer's House of Hardcore school in Poughkeepsie, NY at this link.
As we noted, the debut DVD and Blu-Ray from HOH is now available at www.houseofhardcore.net. It really was a very enjoyable show from top to bottom with lots of different styles and unique match-ups. It was one of my favorite shows of the year and worth checking out.
Spike Dudley, who came out of retirement for the House of Hardcore debut, will be working the 11/16 2CW event in Watertown, NY, facing 2CW champion Kevin Steen in what sounds like a hell of a match. Also set for that show are Demoliton vs. Punisher VanSlyke & Kevin "The Man" Graham, 2CW Tag champions The Super Smash Brothers vs. Sami Callihan & Rich Swann, Slyck Wagner Brown vs. Pepper Parks, Colin Delaney and more. 2CW is running 11/17 in Binghamton, NY with Demolition vs. CK, Spike vs. Jason Axe, Steen vs. Isys Ephex, Veda Scott vs. Cherry Bomb and more.
