After the hugely successful, sold-out ELLISMANIA 4 – many thought that former pro-skateboarder and radio host Jason Ellis couldn’t top himself. At the event, ELLIS defeated Nitro Circus star Andy Bell in the card’s main event and then took the stage with Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden for the Taintstick CD release show – which also featured an appearance of Ozzy Osbourne bassist Blasko performing Ozzy’s classic “Crazy Train” with Taintstick.
Now, Jason Ellis is planning ELLISMANIA 5: Get These Brawls and it is certain to blow last year’s event away. ELLISMANIA 5 will take place April 2nd and 3rd, 2010 in Las Vegas, NV at the Hard Rock and is set to feature none other than Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden taking on TV personality Riki Rachtman (Headbangers Ball, Daisy of Love) in the main event.
This fight is sure to go down in the history books as it pits ‘Old School’ versus ‘New School’ in a battle where the opponents truly hate each other. Riki Rachtman has released the following Youtube clip discussing the fight:
