Glamour Order of Disipline (GOD) vs Dog Pound Order (dPo), Mr. Gillis vs
Lumberjack Bubba, "Rocket" Randy Tyler vs Akam Singh, Torch vs 'Dirty' Dan Denton
and Lorena The Blonde Bombshell vs Grusome Annie.
Starr should know something about cage matches from his job years ago
working for the WWF in Calfornia setting up rings.
"It's definitely easier to have the cage up before the show than to try
and do it while the fans are there!" he laughed.
Friday night sees dueling shows in New Westminster, B.C., as ECCW and
International Championship Wrestling, run by Streetfighter Tim Flowers,
put on shows about six blocks apart.
The ICW show is at the Royal Westminster Regimental Armories, 530
Queens Avenue. The card features a Battle Royal featuring Bad News Allen
, "Street Fighter" Timothy Flowers
vs. AoD's Dr. Luther; Combat Girl vs. The Tijuana Kid; "Heart

include Chief Billy Two Eagles vs Headshrinker Fatu in an Indian Strap
Match, Mr. Gillis (c) vs "Rocket" Randy Tyler for the NWA/ECCW title,
Dog Pound Order (dPo) vs Portland Connection, Tag title match: Glamour
Order of Discipline (GOD) (c) vs Winner of above match (the winner of
the Number 1 Tag Contender's Match will face GOD, a lucky fan will spin
the Extreme Match Wheel and that match will take place), "Ironman" Mike
Roselli vs Akam Singh; Torch vs Larry Zybysco Jr., and "Dirty" Dan Denton vs Lumberjack
Starr admitted to being disappointed that both the ICW and ECCW shows
were on the same night.
"[It] splits the wrestling crowd, because the fans go to both events,"
he said. "Now they have to decide what show to go to."
