Knockout Wrestling have announced a third tournament contest for their October 8th event, ‘Road To Gold III’ at The Cottages in Barrow-in-Furness.

It has been confirmed that “Masked Sensation” Nightmare will face “Number One” Damian Dunne in a Road To Gold first round tournament match in Barrow-in-Furness on October 8th.

Knockout Wrestling announced the match with the following:

The third contest announced for the Road to Gold III Tournament live from The Cottages on Saturday October 8th will see two men looking for redemption battle it out as the “Masked Sensation” Nightmare takes on “#1” Damian Dunne in first round action!

Damian Dunne spent the first half of 2016 embroiled in an intensely personal rivalry with Chris Ridgeway as the two did everything did they could to remove their enemy from KOW on a permanent basis. Despite coming out on top for most of their collisions, Dunne would be unsuccessful in the brutal Street Fight that finally ended the two mens war back at Deception. Despite this loss, in his time in the company Damian has established himself as not only one of the best competitors in all of KOW, but also one of the most vicious and underhanded, willing to inflict immense amounts of punishment on his opponents in order to get the victory, getting a sick enjoyment from his own brutality. It is this side of Dunne that really came out during his wars with Ridgeway, and after such a crushing loss, he will be looking to come back even stronger than before, more ruthless and aggressive and with his eyes on one prize, the Road to Gold III Trophy and the man standing in his way, the “Masked Sensation” Nightmare!

Nightmare has had a chaotic year in KOW, but despite everything that has been thrown at him, he has never taken his eyes off the prize, the KOW Championship! Ever since Nightmare lost the title, he has been obsessed with getting it back, coming mere moments away from reclaiming the title on multiple occasions, but despite how hard he fights, how much pain he goes through, he has always come up short. At Road to Gold III, the odds are once again stacked against the “Masked Sensation” as he not only has to beat Dunne and the 6 other men in the tournament, but he also has the combined menace of A.L.P and Taylor West looming over him. Nightmare was not supposed to compete in the tournament, after being screwed over by A.L.P at our last event with his place in Road to Gold on the line, it was only with the intervention of KOW Management that Nightmare was granted access to the tournament! The last time Nightmare competed against Dunne in singles competition, he came out on the losing end, will the story be the same for KOW’s prodigal son in just 8 days time?

Damian Dunne and Nightmare go to battle in just 6 days with the winner advancing to the Four Way Eliminator final, if either man can survive that match, they will win the Road to Gold Trophy and a guaranteed KOW Championship match at our Fourth Anniversary Show! With so much riding on this match, and both men desperate for a win, who will have what it takes to come out the victor on October 8th? Join us at The Cottages to find out!
