Upstate Professional Wrestling returns to the Eagles Club in Rochester, New York next Saturday for the prestigious Upstate 8. Doors open at 5:30 PM. Bell time is at 6 PM. Tickets are $15 presale and $18 at the door. Here's the card which is subject to change.

Upstate 8 Tournament First Round Matches

HC Loc vs. Jay Freddie

A veteran of the ring wars, HC Loc returns to face a man who impressed Upstate officials with his showing against No Limits Champion Carter Mason and Headlocks & Homeruns 6.

"The New Wave" Cheech vs. Coconut Jones

For all the battles and wars these two have waged, this will be the first time these two have faced each other one-on-one. Both men have virtually done in it all in UPW and know what takes to win. 

"All Ego" Ethan Page vs. Gregory Iron

Page gave up his spot in last year's Upstate 8 to Holden Albright, only to have him lose in the first round to Nick Ando. Now Page is back and says he's going to take matters into his own hands. But he can't overlook pro wrestling's handicapped hero in Gregory Iron, who has the ability and experience to knock off any opponent he faces him. 

"The Young Lion of the West" Mattick (w/Kount C) vs. "The War King" Eddie Kingston (making his UPW debut)

The "Monster Slayer" continues his quest to regain 'his" UPW Heavyweight Championship. But his path won't be easy as he faces a well-traveled, hard-hitting veteran in Eddie Kingston. Kingston makes his UPW debut and will want to leave a lasting impression on Mattick and the fans by winning the Upstate 8.

Winners of these matches will compete in the finals in a four corners match.

UPW Heavyweight Title Match

"Your Captain" Nick Ando (c) vs. KDW Heavyweight Champion "The Alpha & The Omega" Jason Savior

Nick Ando makes his first title defense against the KDW Champion who looks to end the Captain's reign and become a double champion. 

UPW Tag Team Title Four Corners Match

Defiance (c) vs. KDW Tag Team Champions The Wrestling Liberation Front (w/Bin Hamin) vs. Wrecking U (w/Nick Sullivan) vs. The Board of Directors

Chris Cayden and Maximo Suave make their first tag team title defense against the former champions Wrecking U, the current KDW Tag Champs Cloudy & Krist Worthless, and the young, upstart team of Rico Figueroa and Pat White.

585 Live Championship Tournament Finals

Boz vs. Icon Ace

The 585 Live Championship is a new championship that will be added to both UPW and KDW.  But who will be crowned the first ever champion? Be there as two of UPW and KDW's top young rising stars go at it to see who becomes the new champion.
