Rage In The Cage Training Center
September 9, 2009 It was a bittersweet night at the Rage in the Cage Training Center on Tuesday September 8. From the opening ten bell salute to the attempted stripping of Mike James’s Arizona Heavyweight Championship to the special Peter Goodman tribute match–all taking place in a brand new venue for IZW–it was a night that will never be forgotten.

One piece of news stems from the in-ring conversation between Greg DeMarco and Mike James. After praising James for his persistence in pinning Derick Neikirk to score the biggest win of his career and win the Arizona Heavyweight Championship, DeMarco announced that he was stripping James of the title based on the involvement of Ryan Castelucci, who was not assigned to officiate that evening. Castelucci– of course–knocked DeMarco out six weeks ago in an incident that has been chronicled on IZW Impulse. James was about to hand the belt over when Derick Neikirk, the most unlikely person in this case, came to the ring and refused to be awarded the title, rather stating that he wanted to invoke his rematch clause with MMJ at the next IZW event.
ImpactZoneWrestling.com reached DeMarco after the event for comment. “When I signed Derick to the DeMarco Family, I made him one promise. Derick gets what Derick wants. If Derick wants to make an example out of Mike James and win his title back, then so be it. But notice I called it his title…because Derick is the rightful champ, and he’ll rectify that in a few short weeks.
“Stay tuned to ImpactZoneWrestling.com for more news on our upcoming event, including the date and location of when you can see Mike James defend the Arizona Heavyweight Championship against Derick Neikirk, in a match that will have a stipulation of Derick’s choosing.
