Jabroni Journal: Swerve vs. Rush II - Thursday Night in Tacoma

August 3, 2017

DEFY wrestling returns to Tacoma this Thursday night (August 3rd) for "DEFY Presents: The Crash Lucha Libre!" It's all going down at the historic Temple Theater, as the current DEFY, WrestleCircus and CZW Champion Shane "Swerve" Strickland returns to his hometown to battle against one of the most breathtaking wrestlers on the independent scene today: Lio Rush.  

The two met just four months ago at DEFY 2: Wolves At The Door in what was described by many as a Match of the Year candidate. They wowed the audience with a mixture of hard hitting brutality and insane high flying acrobatic moves. In the end though, Strickland's arm was raised as the victor, proving once again that Seattle really is Swerve City. 

Watch the full match here!

There are heavy rumors that Lio Rush will be joining NXT soon, as he recently posted a message on his social media showing that the next month or so of scheduled appearances will be his final matches on the independent wrestling scene. 

This could be the last time we see Swerve vs. Lio Rush and I have no doubt this will go down as one of the greatest matches in Northwest history. Be a part of something huge tomorrow night and get your ticket to DEFY here. 

See you ringside!
