On Saturday, October 6th, Border City Wrestling celebrated their 25th Anniversary event with an Impact Wrestling "One Night Only" taping at St. Clair College in Windsor, ON. In the main event, Cody Deaner faced 3 Impact Wrestling Stars: Kongo Kong (champion), Johnny Impact, & Matt Sydal for the BCW Can-Am Championship.
At the end of the night, Cody Deaner knelt in the ring as a 2x BCW Champion after pinning Kongo Kong with a roll-up out of nowhere.
Cody had the following to say about the win on his Facebook page & Instagram:
“The title doesn’t make the man. The man makes the title.”
For 25 years Border City Wrestling has been the measuring stick in Canadian professional wrestling. As of this past Saturday’s Global Wrestling Network #OneNightOnly taping, I find myself once again as the BCW Champion.
I have been praising Canadian (and specifically Ontario) independent wrestling for literally my entire career. I have travelled far and wide and some of the best wrestling talent in the world... yes the WORLD... is right here in my backyard in Ontario, Canada.
British wrestling is getting a buzz. For years the Northeast US has had a buzz...
CANADIAN wrestling deserves a buzz. Because we have the best talent on the planet. With Border City Wrestling’s affiliation with Impact Wrestling, we are finally getting a platform to show the WORLD how amazing the talent in our country really is.
Whether I’m viewed this way by others or not... as BCW Champion, I feel like I represent the other wrestling talent in this country because BCW has proven with its deep 25 year history that it is THE company in this province & in this country.
A championship is only as meaningful as the person holding it. And this means the WORLD to me.
Time to get to work and show the WORLD how good #CanadianIndependentWrestling truly is. Time to truly GIV’ER!
