The iPPV is now available at http://www.CZWiPPV.com. It aired on 24 hour delay.
It was stated that the Delaware State Athletic Commission was preventing MASADA from wrestling, likely due to his knee injury.

DJ Hyde also spoke on the future of Tournament of Death. Next year’s tournament will feature CZW vs. Big Japan Wrestling. Danny Havoc and Takumi Tsukamoto named the first entrants to next year’s TOD 13. Havoc and Tsukamoto smashed a light tube as if to say “see you then”.

* CAWS Wildcard Champion, ‘Dazzling’ Darrell Allen!
* Canadian star, Paul Ryker!
* One half of the current CAWS World Tag Team Champions, and member of the L-Town Mafia, Thomas Stevens!
* We also know that ‘Perfect’ P.T. Player, who is said to be still laughing over his attack on ‘The Future’ CJ Gunner, at the last show, has said that to go along with what he claims is “the fact he has retired CJ Gunner for good”; that he will have a “perfect surprise” for everyone on the night.
P.T. is also in trouble with CAWS management after striking an official at the previous show. The official himself threw PT out of the building after the incident however coupled with PT’s previous offences, CAWS management feel they will have to step in. What will they have in store? Will PT look to pick fights with officials again?
