Vanguard Championship Wrestling (VCW) will present an event at Hampton High School on March 10 in Hampton. Proceeds from the event will be donated to benefit Hampton High School. Two big matches are set to headline the show: VCW Heavyweight Champion Billy Gunn defending his title against former champion Brandon Scott, and long-time VCW tag team The Hallstars (Ross and James Hall) will compete in their final match against wrestling legends The Rock ‘n Roll Express (Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson).
Brandon Scott, who held the VCW Heavyweight Championship for over 600 days before his loss in October, left Billy Gunn laying on the mat at the end of VCW’s latest event in Norfolk. Gunn was successful in defending his title against “Vampire Warrior” Gangrel, but was caught by surprise when Scott cracked him across the head with the championship. Gunn, with the distraction, caused Scott to lose his match with Reality of Wrestling’s Mysterious Q earlier that night, so Scott will have something to prove to the experienced champion.
Former multi-time VCW Tag Team Champions The Hallstars have made it their final mission to defeat World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Hall of Famers The Rock ‘n Roll Express in Hampton. The Hallstars, having been in the wrestling business since 2003, will hang up their boots once this contest is over. Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are no strangers to the Mid-Atlantic region and have competed as a team for decades across the globe. Even after all of these years, Morton claims to still be in his prime and he’ll dare you to say otherwise. The Hallstars are no strangers to Rock ‘n Roll music as they have produced their own music album locally and often dispose of their opponents with gold records crashing against their skulls. Whichever team delivers their double dropkick finishing maneuver first is bound to be victorious on this night.
In February, Lutz Memorial Cup winner Ken Dixon defeated Liberty Lottery winner Benjamin Banks by referee stoppage due to repeated elbow strikes. With this victory, Dixon can compete for any title of his choosing whenever he pleases. Cashing in his new prize, Dixon has declared that he will compete for Gino’s VCW Commonwealth Heritage Championship in Hampton. In other title action, VCW United States Liberty Champion Phil Brown will defend his title against the debuting Greek God Papadon. Also announced for Hampton is the next match in the ongoing rivalry between Livid the Clown and Timmy Danger (accompanied by Neil Sharkey).
Billy Gunn and The Rock ‘n Roll Express will be meeting fans for photos and autographs at 6 PM on the day of the show. Bell time for the action packed card is 7:30 PM. For advanced tickets and other event information, visit VCW-Wrestling.com.
