Empire State Wrestling feat. Former WWE Stars
Saturday 26th Aug, 2017
Empire State Wrestling (ESW) comes back to the St. Johnsburg Fire Hall, 7165 Ward Road, North Tonawanda, New York, on Saturday, August 26, featuring a mix of former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) talent and several up-and-coming independent wrestling stars from around the country and in Western New York. Former WWE and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) star Super Crazy, WWE star Colin Delaney, plus current television wrestling stars Braxton Sutter and A.R. Fox are scheduled to appear at the event. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. with a bell time set for 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 for second row and $13 for general admission. All tickets increase $5 at the door.
Along with his stints in WWE and ECW, Super Crazy also wrestled prominently overseas, including his home country of Mexico for Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide and numerous Japanese promotions. He will partake in a triple threat match against Lucha Underground star A.R. Fox and North Tonawanda, New York’s Kevin Bennett. Fox and Bennett faced each other in a highly praised single match 3 years ago. Including Super Crazy to the mix ensures this will be a “must-see” bout.
Colin Delaney is known for his run in WWE in which he worked closely with hardcore wrestling superstar Tommy Dreamer. He now extensively wrestles throughout the Northeast independent circuit, with his partner Cheech in the tag team “To Infinity & Beyond”. Delaney is set to challenge R.J. City for the ESW Heavyweight Championship. City retained the title last show in a rematch against former champion Bill Collier in controversial fashion.
After extending his winning streak with a victory in tag team action with Kevin Bennett at the last event, West Seneca, New York native Braxton Sutter is scheduled to face returning top independent star J.T. Dunn. Dunn will be looking for his first win in ESW, after previously facing Bennett earlier this year.
Collier will take on Buffalo, New York’s Brandon Thurston to determine the next No. 1 contender for the ESW Heavyweight Championship. The two wrestled each other earlier this year in a bout that exhibited some of the hardest hits ever witnessed at the St. Johnsburg Fire Hall.
In the other title bouts, Rochester, New York native Coconut Jones will defend the ESW Interstate Championship against Cleveland, Ohio’s Gregory Iron. North Tonawanda’s own Oliver Street Express will put the ESW Tag Team Championship on the line versus two fast risers in the independent wrestling scene in Alex Daniels and Kevin Blackwood.
International wrestling star Ethan Page is set to face Queen City native Frankie Feathers. Local favorites Vince Valor, Anthony Gaines and Jerk Cockins will also be featured at the event among others.More Information Facebook Event Find Prepaid Parking
