James Corden: “We talked about your love of wrestling before, but I can’t believe this…this is real. You’re about to make you’re professional wrestling debut, next week. Ok, why and how did this happen?”

Ron Funches: I didn’t plan on it, sometimes I do my thing and I get asked to go to events and do commentating. I go up, talk a little trash and go home. This guy, I was talking trash about him, I met him a couple of times. He’s a real jerk, he has a hotmail account in 2021 (laughter from all).

James Corden: “Who is this guy?” (laughing) Who we talking about? Who is this?

Ron Funches: “His name is Tony Deppen, he’s just an independent wrestler and he doesn’t like jokes. He doesn’t understand humor, so he called me out. I was like ok, this guy is gonna talk to me, we’ll do a little bit, but he took it too far.”

Corden showed a video of Deppen slapping Funches

James Corden: “Hang on, wait now, is that real?

Ron Funches: “It was, that slap was so hard James, yes! (it was real)…he slapped the hell out of me.”

James Corden: “I’m worried about this, what’s the strategy going to be here?

Ron Funches: “I got techniques, first of all bribery, that’s my number one move. He has a Hotmail account, clearly he doesn’t have much money.

Ron Funches Talks GCW on “The Late Late Show with James Corden”. * There have been major changes to our events calendar due to the coronavirus pandemic. We started this calendar in 2018 with pro wrestling events. Then added some other live sports and entertainment events. The goals were to help sell live tickets for all kinds of events. Also, to help fans finds events and tickets easier. Then the virus happened and live events stopped for a while. So we had to change things up and added televised events. Now live events have returned so we’re going back to normal. The calendar will be a bit of a mess, with tv shows, trailers, live events, etc. But soon there will be only live events. Each has ticket links and venue information. Some events have a lot more and are basically event previews. It depends on the information available at the time we post the event. And if we are able to update that event, etc. Certain days have one to three events. While others have over twenty. So you may have to click the link at the bottom to see more. If this is your event, feel free to contact us above for any changes.
