SSW Heavyweight Championship:
Shane Mercer (Champion) Vs. Davey Richards
SSW/PWK/RCW When Worlds Collide III
[February 4th, 2017]
On February 4th, Strong Style Wrestling presented a matinee show featuring a host of new talents known as New Blood. The main event of that show featured the Strong Style Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Kongo Kong defending the title against the longtime number one contender, “The Iron Demon” Shane Mercer. Mercer was successful in capturing the gold, and would issue an open challenge to anyone in the locker room at When Worlds Collide III that same evening. Enter Davey Richards, former ROH World Heavyweight Champion, to accept the challenge for Mercer’s newly won championship. It’s a match that was received with a standing ovation, that proves that Richards is still a top contender for any championship in the world, and that Mercer is well-deserving as a top level superstar.
