CHRIS HERO RETURNS TO CZW!
If you’re a fan of the independent professional wrestling circuit, odds are you’ve heard of Chris Hero. Having traveled the world & capturing championships in major organizations like CZW, Ring of Honor, Chikara, & others, Hero signed a developmental deal with WWE in 2012. Rebranded as Kassius Ohno, it seemed Hero would follow in the footsteps of other colleagues on the independent circuit & carve out a legacy on the main WWE roster.
That all changed last week. To the shock of wrestling fans everywhere, both of mainstream & independent products, it was announced that Hero was released from his WWE developmental contract. Shortly thereafter, Hero began to announce where he would be appearing for the rest of the year. There was one date, however, that wrestling fans watched with great interest. Where would Chris Hero be appearing on December 14th?
We received our answer last night. DJ Hyde, owner of Combat Zone Wrestling, announced via his Twitter the news that CZW fans had been hoping for. On Saturday night, December 14th…Chris Hero will return to CZW to challenge Drew Gulak for the CZW World Heavyweight Championship at “Cage of Death XV”! The landscape of the Combat Zone has changed significantly over the past 3 years since Hero’s last match in CZW (watch CZW “Lines in the Sand” to see the match). One fact, however, remains the same. The CZW World Heavyweight Championship is THE top prize in independent wrestling & Chris Hero will be bringing the fight to Gulak in what is certain to be a wrestling masterpiece. Will we see Hero become a 2x CZW World Heavyweight Champion, or will Drew Gulak emerge victorious in what is undoubtedly his biggest CZW match yet?
