HOH 9 Toronto Results

  • House of Hardcore has indeed gone global.

    Saturday night at a jam-packed, and hot, Ted Reeve Community Arena in Toronto, a boisterous Canadian crowd welcomed the American-based wrestling promotion founded by hardcore legend Tommy Dreamer with open arms, loud chants and an attendance record.

    Despite the blistering heat (announcer Justin Roberts of World Wrestling Entertainment fame announced the temperature inside at 52 C), wrestling-starved fans north of the border filled Ted Reeve arena to chase autographs from the likes of Dreamer, Team 3D, John Hennigan, Rhino, The Young Bucks, Roberts and others during a two hour meet-and-greet that preceded the show.

Interview with The Addiction

  • Inside the ring, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian are partners. As The Addiction, they are as good a tag team as you’ll find in professional wrestling. The duo is the current Ring of Honor tag-team champions and are two-time tag champs during a long run with Total Nonstop Action.

    Outside of the ring, Daniels and Kazarian are practically family. Each calls the other their best friend and each credits the other with helping him find success in a business that can be, to quote the late, great sportscaster Stuart Scott, as cool as the other side of the pillow to a performer.

    It comes as no surprise then that Daniels and Kazarian share the same philosophy when it comes to tag-team wrestling and finding success in an otherwise forgotten art form in pro wrestling.

Interview with John Hennigan

  • John Hennigan’s career is hotter than ever.

    The former World Wrestling Entertainment superstar not only still wrestles a nearly full-time schedule, but he also finds time for his growing acting career and to maintain one of the best physiques in the business.

    Fittingly, over the phone during a workout, Hennigan, who is perhaps best known for his wrestling alter-ego John Morrison, is eager to talk about his hectic life and career.

    Besides starring as Hercules in Hercules Reborn, and roles in American Justice and a soon-to-be starring role in Diablo Steel, Morrison is also adding to his reputation as a bonafide wrestling star with various promotions.

Interview with Traci Brooks

  • Traci Brooks spent the better part of her life giving to the business of professional wrestling and its fans.

    Come July 18 at Ted Reeve Arena in Toronto, fans have a chance to give Brooks — born Tracy Brookshaw — a proper sendoff as she makes what is being billed as her final professional wrestling-related appearance at Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore.

    Dreamer, a longtime friend of Brooks, ushered his longtime manager and real-life wife Beulah McGillicutty out of the business as a show last year in Philadelphia, and will do the same for Brooks with friends and family in attendance, not far from her hometown.

    “I read Beulah’s blog about it,” Brooks said over the phone, “and it made me cry. So I texted Tommy and said ‘That was actually sweet.’ ”

    To her surprise, her friend promised to do the same for Brooks one day.

Interview with Team 3D

  • For more than two decades, no tag team has been more dominant or rewritten the history books more than the team currently known as 3D.

    Bully Ray and Devon Dudley, as they’re known in the pro wrestling world, are, quite simply, among the best and most decorated tag teams in the history of wrestling.

    Born Mark LoMonaco (Bully Ray) and Devon Hughes, the duo formed a career-long alliance and lifelong friendship while working for Extreme Championship Wrestling in the 1990s. For the next 20-plus years, the duo carved out a reputation as one of the hardest working and reliable teams to ever form. Besides working together in every corner of the Earth, the Dudleys are the only team to have held the World Wrestling Entertainment, World Wrestling Federation, ECW, World Championship Wrestling, National Wrestling Alliance, Total Nonstop Action and New Japan Pro Wrestling tag-team championships. They also became as famous for putting opponents through tables as they did for their titles and accolades. While these days the duo are both savouring being the equivalent of wrestling’s free agents, they look back proudly and fondly when asked about their careers.
