Jabroni Journal: DEFY 4 - Pro Wrestling Returns To Tacoma

June 28, 2017

On Thursday June 29th (it's tomorrow night as I type this), local indie wrestling powerhouse DEFY invades Tacoma for their first event outside of the Seattle area. DEFY's first 3 events were a smashing success, as we saw wrestlers from all over the globe descend upon Washington Hall. Fans were treated to matches between wrestlers such as Lio Rush, Davey Richards, Cody Rhodes, Matt Cross, Joey Ryan, Su Yung, Angelina Love and so many more. 

If you've never seen a DEFY event in person, I would compare it to the vibe of a super crazy punk rock show mixed with a live circus. The crowd is loud and supportive, the wrestlers are both brutal and high-flying and the environment is unlike any other. I can't wait to see the action live inside the Tacoma Temple Theater, as the venue has a classic, intimate atmosphere complete with a badass balcony.

Thursday's event is night one of DEFY 4: Gigantic, a two-day event that also includes a killer show on Friday night back at Seattle's Washington Hall. 

If you're a wrestling fan, there's no doubt you recognize at least a few names on this STACKED card, as there's top talent from around the world taking over Tacoma Thursday night.
