Banners stolen but CCW show must go on


Banners to promote a Coastal Championship Wrestling show in South Florida were stolen, according to an email sent from CCW.

CCW, an independent wrestling group based in South Florida, has a show on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Coral Springs Charter School Gym on the southeast corner of Sample Road and University Drive. The group runs shows periodically there, and they promote shows with signs at local establishments as well as huge banners hanging on an overpass off University Drive in nearby Tamarac.

The email from CCW noted: “The majority of our advertising dollars go to pay for two giant banners displayed on an overpass on University Drive in Tamarac. These banners were stolen a few days after they were installed, replaced two days later at great expense and then stolen again the next day.”

The email also read that according to the city of Tamarac and its department of transportation “this is the first such theft in the 20-plus years banners have been displayed on the overpass.”

With no banners, CCW is encouraging ‘word of mouth’ via social media to help them draw patrons for the action-packed, fan friendly show.

CCW on Oct. 19 features former WWE superstars Stevie Richards and The Headbangers. There will also be women’s match with former WWE Tough Enough competitor Ivelisse Velez.

Established wrestler Pablo Marquez, who’s spent some time in ECW and WWF, is on the show. Marquez also trains aspiring wrestlers at the Main Event Training Center in Fort Lauderdale.
