The 2017 #DonCurtisMemorialCup is now history and the staff, roster and sponsors of the United States Wrestling Alliance would like to take the opportunity to thank the 200+ fans who came out to once again support the show and continue to make the USWA the premier professional wrestling show in north Florida! As we enter our sixth year of live events, we are honored to have you all along for the ride!
We encourage you to please leave feedback and let us know what you thought of the show! If it was your first time attending, how did you discover us?
Our next live event is our annual Invasion at the Armory show scheduled for Saturday, April 15th, 2017 at the Snyder Armory in Jacksonville!
Here are the match results from the show:
- Sam Shaw defeated Jayson Falcone
- Jon Davis* defeated Aaron Epic (*Davis was a last minute sub for Johnny Nixx, who reaggravated his knee injury prior to the show).
- Chance Champion defeated Beastly Brody* (*Brody was a substitute for Josh Woods who could not compete due to an injury in training Friday)
- Jason Cade defeated Jon Cruz
- Jon Davis defeated Sam Shaw
- Jason Cade defeated Chance Champion
- Jason Cade defeated Jon Davis to win the 2017 Don Curtis Memorial Cup and the vacant USWA Elite championship!* (see explanation below)
Plus: - Leva Bates defeated Brandi Lauren in ladies action
USWA Unified champion, Dagon Briggs was also on hand to address the controversy surrounding the title vs title match between himself and former USWA Elite champion, Jon Davis. Dagon talked about why the decision was made to move the show to the United Pro Entertainment live event in Kingsland, GA on November 18th after Hurricane Matthew forced us to cancel our live event on October 8th and also talked about how he couldn't, in good conscience, hold a title that was won under questionable conditions.
Dagon then relinquished the Elite title and declared that the winner of tonight's trophy tournament should also be awarded this title. USWA Commissioner stopped Dagon and reminded him there was a protocol that needed to be followed, but Dagon went over his head and asked USWA promoter, Ella Quillen if she was in agreement with what he wanted to do. Ella gave Dagon the thumbs up, which led to the emergence of former Elite champion, Jon Davis, from the back!
Davis was visibly irritability the fact that Dagon would just discard a title that was supposed to be held and defended with respect. The two men exchanged heated words before Dagon finally offered to try and make it right with Davis by giving him a shot at the USWA championship inside a steel cage at our next live event in April!
After Jason Cade defeated Jon Davis in the final round of the trophy tournament, Davis grabbed the Elite title and the mic, praised Cade for what he had just accomplished and presented Cade with his new prize!
More details about our next live event will be available in the coming weeks, so please stay tuned to our web and social media platforms for more information!
**Video footage from tonight's show will be online soon on the USWA website and Facebook page.**
