Welcome back to the UK Match of the Week. Now granted this isn’t quite the technical masterpiece that some of our other highlighted bouts have been but it certainly was a spectacle…we present James Ellsworth vs CZW Tournament of Death winner and arguably the best Deathmatch performer in the world: Jimmy Havoc.
Ever since his departure from WWE Ellsworth has been sporadically appearing on cards across the United States, including in a bout against Matt Riddle for Joey Janela’s Spring Break 2 during WrestleMania weekend this year.
This bout between Havoc and Ellsworth took place at IPW:UK’s ingeniously named ‘Chin Up Son’ event on May 2nd and was the first time that Ellsworth had appeared in the UK outside of WWE. Fans of the rising UK promotion instantly demanded that Havoc take on Ellsworth ever since the master of the ‘No Chin Music’ was announced. Havoc jokingly tweeted that he would “remove one of his hands” playing up Ellsworth’s “any man with two hands has a chance” catchphrase and the resulting bout has to be seen to be believed.
