German based promotion wXw will be holding their prestigious 16 Carat Gold tournament over the weekend. The company are heading to Oberhausen on March 8th, 9th and 10th for the 2019 iteration of the event.
The opening round matches of the tournament will be taking place tonight. These are as follows:
- David Starr vs WALTER
- Rey Horus vs Fenix
- Axel Dieter Jr vs Marius Al-Ani
- Mark Davis vs Pentagon Jr
- Lucky Kid vs Timothy Thatcher
- Ilja Dragunov vs Daisuke Sekimoto
- Shigehiro Ire vs Chris Brookes
- Avalanche vs Jurn Simmons
The big matches lined up include David Starr taking on NXT UK Superstar WALTER. Starr has never beaten WALTER in a one on one contest, a story that stretches multiple companies worldwide and one of the most intriguing on the independent scene. Mark Davis vs Pentagon Jr could also be a sleeper match with the Aussie Open star getting a shot at one of the best performers on the planet in Pentagon Jr.
The show on Friday March 8th will also be featuring two World Championship bouts. The wXw Unified World Championship will be defended by Absolute Andy when he takes on Bobby Gunns. The wXw Women’s Championship will also be on the line when Champion Toni Storm defends against Killer Kelly.
