Saturday Night, Sunday Afternoon Main Events Announced: Battle Of Impact Wrestling's Big Men Pits Gunner vs. DOC, Elgin, Richards Battle In ROH Match-of-the-Year Rematch!
Main events for our Saturday night and Sunday afternoon wrestling cards have just been announced for this year's Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend in Charlotte. And they're huge!
More than 600 pounds of muscle and braun collide on Saturday night as the stars of Impact Wrestling are featured in the main event. North Carolina native and currently one-half of the TNA World Tag Team champions Gunner will battle the Aces and Eights "Director of Chaos" DOC!
Ring of Honor Wrestling's 2012 "Match of the Year" rematch highlights our Sunday afternoon card.
It was truly an epic battle when Canadian Michael Elgin, for the first time, challenged then-ROH World champion Davey Richards during the 2012 Wrestlemania weekend "Showdown In The Sun" in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The 24-year-old Elgin narrowly missed capturing championship gold on his first shot. It was a fight that Richards himself will tell you was one of the toughest of his wrestling career and one in which Elgin truly earned the respect of "The American Wolf."
The two will meet again in Charlotte, and on the line: pride, honor and respect!
This year's fanfest weekend features two live wrestling cards, Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
Our VIP "All Access" Pass includes a reserved Ringside seat for both events and early entrance, prior to non-VIPs.
General admission seating to each day's matches are included in the fanfest's Single-Day tickets. For 19 bucks a day, either day, enjoy all of the non-VIP daytime fanfest activities as well as that day's live wrestling matches.
More details about the live matches at fanfest, and the participants, will be available in the coming weeks.
Final First-Round Matches In Wrestling Cares' Year-Long "Race For The Ring" Tourney To Be Featured In Charlotte!
Two matches, the final first-round contests in the year-long "Race For The Ring" tournament, have been confirmed to take place at this summer's Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Legends Fanfest in Charlotte.
"Race For The Ring" is an exciting new concept from Los Angeles-based Wrestling Cares, the brainchild of founder David Jackson and wrestling legend Les Thatcher. The tournament showcases one-of-a-kind matches, mixing old school wrestling action with fast-paced scoring. Each pinfall scored during each ten-minute bout is worth one point. The competitor with the most points wins. If the score is tied at the end of regulation, there is a three-minute overtime period. If there is no clear winner at the end of the overtime, both competitors are eliminated.
Cassidy Riley squares off against Corey Hollis, and Micah Taylor battles "The Greek God" Papadon in the two "Race For The Ring" tournament matches on Saturday night, August 3.
PWX Showcase Match Added To Sunday Afternoon Lineup!
Premiere Wrestling Xperience presents a clash of championship tag teams at this August's fanfest, as Charlotte favorites Caleb Konley and Cedric Alexander face off against former PWX tag team champions Eddie Edwards and Roderick Strong.
The "Dojo Bros" haven't been seen in PWX since being stripped of their tag titles, and they have promised revenge against the two young stars known as "7-OH!-4."
Can Konley and Alexander put aside their recent differences and once again stand atop the tag team mountain? Or will Ring of Honor superstars Edwards and Strong begin another reign of terror in PWX? The showcase match is featured on the Sunday afternoon, August 4 card.
