THE CARD:SPECIAL CONFRONTATION
Shelly Martinez vs. Trina
The RCW Office received a special request that these two beautiful and extremely controversial women meet in the center of the ring. Shelly Martinez is a former WWE (then known as "Ariel") and TNA (then known as "Salinas") superstar and known throughout the world. Even though she has a very positive energy, Shelly is very dangerous when it comes to the ring and knows how to protect herself. Trina, meanwhile, is arguably one of the most controversial figures in pro wrestling today. Conniving and manipulative yet stunning, Trina is looking to make her mark by taking down an established name in women's wrestling. What will happen on February 2?
"The People's Choice" Steve McEnroe vs. RCW Champion "The Largeador" Michael Faith
This rivalry has been one of the most intense in RCW history. A true David vs. Goliath story, Michael Faith is probably the most dominant RCW Champion in its 11-year history, an agile 400-pound athlete whose potent offense has never been seen before inside (or even outside) a wrestling ring. Meanwhile McEnroe, a dual sport star, came from very humble roots and quickly captured the hearts of all of the RCW fans. While the RCW Championship has eluded McEnroe, fans never say die when it comes to their hero. The previous encounters between McEnroe and Faith have been nothing short of epic. Last summer these two faced each other in singles' competition which resulted in McEnroe nearly being decapitated by a guardrail, but McEnroe got back up and showed his immense determination, even in defeat. They have fought in two cage matches and a Ladder Match, including a cage match last month that left McEnroe a complete bloody mess and resulted in a trip to the hospital. McEnroe has had to go to great lengths to defeat the massive beast but thus far has fallen short. Co-Commissioner "Super-Mex" Hernandez granted this match; however Faith went to Co-Commissioner Chris Sifuentes and managed to get this to be non-title. Faith has nothing to lose, his gain is finally ending McEnroe once and for all. For McEnroe, this is more than the championship ... it's personal.
Ann Dromeda is no more. A defiant Don Juan returns.
Few RCW superstars have more tenure and meant more than Ann Dromeda/Don Juan. Don Juan was a superb athlete and one of the best wrestlers in Texas before letting fans see another side, "El Mamacito" Ann Dromeda. Unquestionably, Ann Dromeda was one of the -- if not THE -- most popular wrestlers in RCW and earned the moniker "the heart and soul of RCW." However, in recent months, Ann Dromeda has become frustrated with the inability to win titles and matches. After a recent loss to lucha legend Skayde, Ann Dromeda sent a video to the RCW Offices in which Ann Dromeda wiped away the make-up, blamed his misfortunes on RCW management and the fans (he even went so far as to call RCW "Really Crappy Wrestling"), and promised on Feb. 2 we'd see the "real" Don Juan!
