Rob Van Dam Defeats Willie Mack to Retain the PCW Heavyweight Title; Warbeast Claims Tag Titles at Pacific Coast Wrestling’s Fantasm

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 24, 2017 / -- Torrential downpours could not stop a capacity crowd from packing the new PCW Arena to watch Rob Van Dam successfully defend his Pacific Coast Wrestling® (PCWTM) Heavyweight Championship against Willie Mack last Friday, January 20, in Wilmington, CA., as part of PCW’s “Fantasm” 1 Year Anniversary Event.

The event began with Joe Graves returning to PCW after a long injury absence to defeat Timothy Thatcher via submission in their personal challenge, best-of-three, deciding match. The match, described by some as a “wrestling clinic”, set the tone for a hard hitting night of action.

The crowd was then electrified, when SoCal’s own, Douglas James, defeated Lio Rush and Joey Janela to advance to a Light Heavyweight Championship match at PCW’s “High Tide” on March 24th. The action packed match saw wrestlers flying inside and outside the ring, with James gaining the victory by pinning Janela.

Alexander Hammerstone also advanced to a Light Heavyweight Championship match at “High Tide” (against James) by defeating luchador, the Oracle, in a back and forth match. Hammerstone, who has cut weight to enter the light heavyweight ranks, looks like a one man wrecking machine in the PCW light heavyweight division.

“Mr. Athletic” Jeff Cobb continued to make his claim as a contender for the PCW Heavyweight Title by defeating “The Viral Sensation” Joey Ryan. In a matchup of two newcomers to PCW, “Agent 47” Low Ki defeated the immensely popular lucha libre star, Drago.

Warbeast (The Almighty Sheik and Fatu) defeated Dom Vitalli and MVP (a surprise substitute for Gabriel Gallo) to become the new PCW Tag Team Champions. The match was not without a great deal of controversy, and it remains to be seen if Warbeast will evoke the Freebird rule during their new title reign. It is also unclear where MVP’s allegiance lies, and what is next for the former IWGP Intercontinental, WWE United States, and WWE Tag Team Champion.

In the main event, “The Whole F’N Show” “Mr. PCW” Rob Van Dam defeated “Chocolate Thunder” Willie Mack to retain the PCW Heavyweight Championship. The match saw a lot of out of the ring action and even saw the very first “Mackinator” executed by Mack with Van Dam prone in the corner. Van Dam managed to recover, and hit his 5 star frog splash for the victory.

DVD, BluRay and streaming information about Fantasm will be available on in the coming weeks.

Pacific Coast Wrestling’s next event – High Tide – will take place Friday, March 24th, 2017 at the Longshoremen’s Memorial Hall in Wilmington, CA. Full card information will be announced shortly and can be found on Tickets go on sale to the general public, Thursday, January 26th and are $25 for General Admission, $50 for Gold Circle and $75 for Platinum, which includes a meet and greet with some of the wrestlers.
