About OMEGA Championship Wrestling
OMEGA (Organization of Modern Extreme Grappling Arts) was originally established in 1997 by brothers Matt and Jeff Hardy. During its original three year run, it launched the wrestling careers of many future superstars, including The Hardy Boyz, Shane “The Hurricane” Helms, Steve Corino, Joey Matthews, Shannon Moore, Christian York, C.W. Anderson, and Mike Maverick.
The brand was revived in January 2013 at an event called “Chinlock for Chuck”, a benefit for local pro wrestler Chuck Coates who was recovering from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Then in May 2013, OMEGA hosted a benefit event titled “Support The Sport” at East Wake High School. This event raised funds for the school’s wrestling team to purchase a new wrestling mat. To conclude 2013, OMEGA hosted “Chapel Thrill”, a benefit event for Margaret Pollard Middle School. OMEGA intends to continue promoting events to benefit local causes in 2014 and beyond.
