"Big Dave is... Checking into the WZCW Hall of Fame!"

Big Dave (Hall of Fame Ceremony, 2015)

At the vast rate of speed that WZCW evolves and moves forward, sometimes we can be guilty of forgetting about some of the biggest names that have crossed these doors. However, no one can be guilty of forgetting the name of the biggest Dave that has ever been a member of the WZCW roster. A true champion in every sense of the word, Big Dave will be eternally remembered as one of the most popular and most talented wrestlers ever.

And now, in 2015, Big Dave has been inducted into the WZCW Hall of Fame...

But we have to head back to 2009 to see the first appearance of the man who would go on to be the General Manager of Meltdown after the fall of Ty Burna. Meltdown 21 was the first time we ever clapped eyes on the Londoner and it wasn't long after when the world sat to attention and took note of just how talented Big Dave was, and the potential that he had. Teaming with his best friend Ace David, Big Dave proved victorious in his first outing after beating WZCW Legend “Showtime” Cougar and TM in a tag team match. But as if that were enough, Big Dave and Ace David showed the world that they were content with nothing less than ultimate glory, when they knocked off 4 other teams in the only match in WZCW history that has taken place in a pentagonal ring. The first taste of gold came very early on in the career of the new Hall of Fame superstar but was a sign of things to come for sure.

Looking back now, many people would argue that, not only were the Full House Daves (Ace David and Big Dave) the Tag Team that really revolutionised the Tag Team division in WZCW, but they were perhaps the greatest Tag Team that the company has ever seen. The Full House Daves showed the world that Tag Team wrestling could be more than a stop gap. But perhaps the greatest moment of the Tag Team reign was the ladder match contested at All or Nothing 2009 against Second Coming. And although Dave and Ace were second best on that night, the memories of the match are just another part of the foundation of a magnificent WZCW Career.

The next chapter of a glittering WZCW career came in the form of a magnificent singles run. Done with Tag Team wrestling, it was time for Big Dave to go out on his own and show the world that he was not content with being second best. His EurAsian Championship reign is, perhaps, the reign of which he is known the most for. Much has been said about the great reigns in WZCW but the Big Dave reign came before a time when it was expected. In fact, the reign started the new culture of holding onto Championships as long as possible. Let's take you back to the moment that Big Dave took his first singles championship...


Click for Spoiler:
Showtime grabs Big Dave from behind and manages to give Big Dave the Backstage. Show goes for the cover...1...2...Dave manages to get foot on the rope as the referee breaks the count. Showtime begins to argue that it was in fact a three count and tells him he should be quicker in the future. By this time Big Dave has got to his feet and quickly goes for a roll up. 1... kick out. Dave pulls back as Cougar looks clearly frustrated at this. Cougar goes for a spinning kick as Big Dave catches hit foot. Cougar manages to connect an Enziguri to Big Dave. Big Dave goes down on the mat as Showtime sets him up in the "commercial break." The hold is getting strong as you can see the pain on Big Daves face. He gets closer and closer to the ropes as he forces another rope break. Cougar again seems pretty annoyed at this and again argues with the referee.

Big Dave grabs Cougar and gives him an Irish whip into the turnbuckle. Cougar crashes in as Big Dave then gives him another Irish whip into the opposite corner. Cougar slumps into the corner as Dave goes for another Spear. Cougar quickly moves as once again Dave crashes into the ring post. Cougar gets Big Dave into a reverse neck breaker as he then picks up Big Dave and goes for “The Final Act” from the turnbuckle. It connects and the ring shakes as both men crash on the mat.

Copeland: OH MY WORD THAT WAS SOMETHING

Connor: Surely this is it!

The crowd goes nuts as this as Cougar walks over to the turnbuckle and climbs up to the second rope. He signals for the elbow drop and then points to Big Dave. He then decides to climb onto the top rope and waits as Big Dave has made his way to his feet. Cougar instead goes for a crossbody as he knocks Big Dave down on the mat but they roll over as Big Dave somehow manages to stand back up with Cougar in his hands. He puts Cougar over his shoulders and then manages to deliver the Stamp of Authority. Cougar is flat out as Big Dave goes for the cover. 1...2....3.

Harrys the winner of this match and NEW WZCW EurAsian champion....Big Dave!


The crowd begin to boo loudly.

Cohen: I told you this was Dave's, he kept his cool and Cougar got cocky.



It was during this incredible run that Big Dave beat the likes of Titus, Blade and Showtime Cougar; 3 names who are synonymous with quality. But, as was the character of Big Dave, the EurAsian challenge was not enough. Big Dave wanted to taste the glory of the WZCW Heavyweight Championship. And in true Big Dave form, he finally captured the biggest prize in the company at Unscripted in 2011. Beating the man who inducted him into the Hall of Fame this year (Ty Burna), Mr. Baller and Steven Kurtesy, Big Dave finally reached the top of the mountain; the place where everyone expected him to be.

So many highlights of an amazing career it is hard for this onlooker to pick just a few to cover. But Big Dave has seen it all and done it all in a career worthy of nay Hall of Fame. His name is still on the lips of those who aspire to greatness and who aspire to bigger things outside of this great company. One of the nicest guys in the history of WZCW and a talent the likes of which may never be seen again, WZCW welcomes him home.
