Wrestling is Alive and Kicking in the Duke City

It was a pleasant evening when I arrived at the Historic El Rey Theater. The energetic crowd was heading to the front doors, and I made my way into the theater to find a packed house full of enthusiastic New Mexicans ready for action. I thought to myself, “Welcome to Duke City Championship Wrestling,” and headed down to the floor.


Although it has been a while since I have been to a live show, and even longer since I’ve been to an indie production, this show was incredible. From the top of the bill to the epic tag-team finale featuring hometown

hero Hobo Hank, the crowd was electric and kept the Superstars of DCCW fed with high level energy of a full on WWE show. In short, the people of Albuquerque were amazing.

It is going to take me a minute to learn all of the characters of the DCCW. But the ones who came out to greet the crowd afterwards (and some during) like Mr. Happy, Two Scoops, Eliza Haze, Mosh Pit Mike and Anjelica Risk were gracious and engaging. I can’t wait to interview this cast of characters.


Announcements were made for the next show, Countdown to Chaos, December 30, 2023 and 505X5 will have an interview booth setup to talk to the DCCW stars before and/or after their matches.
