Deathmatch Icon Danny Havoc Returning to Ring for Charity

In 2017, American Hardcore legend Danny Havoc stepped away from the ring. A 12-year pioneer of American deathmatches in the 2000s, mounting injuries forced Havoc to walk away from the business. Havoc retired a 2x Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) Tournament of Death winner (2008, 2013), a former 2x CZW Ultraviolent Underground Champion, CZW World Junior Heavyweight Champion, and 2x CZW World Tag Team Champion, and the 2016 winner of the Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) Tournament of Survival. But on Sunday, October 6, Danny Havoc is coming out of retirement for one night only to help raise money for fellow deathmatch wrestler G-Raver, a regular with GCW, who is out with an injury. Havoc is joining SHLAK and Markus Crane in a huge 6-man match against former GCW and CZW World Champion Matt Tremont, GCW striker Eric Ryan, and Midwest tough guy Eddy Only from Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW). The event is part of the charity show run by Tremont’s Hardcore Hustle Organization (H2O), one of the emerging hardcore promotions in the New Jersey area since its formation in 2016.

Havoc faced G-Raver several times at the end of his career, including two matches in GCW – Havoc beat G-Raver in a Lightube Log Cabin match at GCW Deck The Halls with Ultraviolence in December of 2016 (picking up the win), then lost to G-Raver in a gauntlet match at GCW The Art of War ’17, that also saw Drew Blood and Low-Life Louie. That same month in July 2017, G-Raver defeated Havoc and Nick Gage in a triple threat with On Point Wrestling (OPW) as well.
