ICYMI: The saga of Spenny and Tyson Dux
Spencer Rice is a Canadian television icon. In 2003, Kenny vs. Spenny first hit television screens across the country and quickly became a cult-classic. Upon the show’s final episode, after 6 incredibly successful seasons, Rice, aka Spenny, chose to move to Kingston, where he and his family now call home. Since moving to Kingston, Spenny has had involvement in every Chinlock Wrestling event, even entering his “Nice Guy” character from Season 5, Episode 6 of Kenny vs. Spenny into last year’s Chinlock Championship Rumble.
But that’s where this story begins to fall off of the rails.
In that episode Spenny chose Tyson Dux to help train him to be a better professional wrestler than his counterpart, Kenny. Adopting the “Nice Guy” moniker, Spenny took the challenge as seriously as any other, a life-long professional wrestling fan growing up. Kenny, on the other hand, approached the challenge with apathy and general disdain, adopting a character named “Yarp, Yarp”.
Of course, as the story goes, during Spenny’s training, Tyson Dux grew tired of listening to Spenny whine about how difficult wrestling was, then later turned on him at the end of the episode, giving Kenny the win.
Dux, a world class wrestler himself, enjoyed a successful career before the episode, and arguably an even more successful career since. Appearing on Impact Wrestling, and as a competitor in the first ever WWE Cruiserweight Classic, Dux has also enjoyed an incredible amount of success in his home promotion, Smash Wrestling, based primarily in the Greater Toronto Area. But the guilt of turning on Spenny in that episode has stuck with Dux, and now seeing that Spenny is involved in Chinlock Wrestling and also promoting a new comic book that he co-wrote, Dux decided to extend the olive branch, and see if they could bury the hatchet.
As seen in the video above, Tyson tried to reach out to Spenny, and purchased a copy of his new comic book “Hypno Bitch” as a way of saying sorry, and in effort to bury the hatchet after all of these years.
Of course, that’s not how things work out, and now Dux is accusing Spenny of scamming him for his money, and not delivering the comic book.
Spenny, not one to mince words delivered the following message:
But that is not all. The feud has continued on Twitter, and has included many personal shots between Dux and Spenny, all leading to a challenge to a match on Saturday, December 1st, 2018 at the ARC Centre (284 Earl Street in Kingston). Tyson Dux’s Twitter feed can be found here: https://twitter.com/TysonDux and Spenny’s Twitter feed can be found here: https://twitter.com/Spenny. I think it goes without saying, but these Twitter feeds can sometimes with NSFW, and viewer discretion is strongly advised.
Chinlock Wrestling CEO Jan Murphy has been trying to keep the peace, and mend the fence, between Dux and Spenny without much success. Both will be in attendance, and there’s a very high likelihood this will breakdown into some type of a fight, or confrontation, or match on Saturday, December 1st at the ARC Centre at Queens University.
