Word seems to be spreading thatJersey Championship Wrestling (JCW) is the place to be for professional wrestling legends to showcase their talents and meet their fans! Coming off of a month that saw both Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Jerry “The King” Lawler in the JCW ring, we move forward to April with no fewer than seven legends and stars who are ready to thrill the New Jersey crowds!
The first event will take place in Brick, NJ on April 19th. Hardcore wrestling icons Terry Funk and Tommy Dreamer will be in the house that night, so be prepared for a truly Extreme show! In the main event of the evening, Funk will be in Dreamer’s corner for a rematch of a match that took place in June of last year in Oakland. Dreamer will once again be facing “The Cold-Hearted Playa” Danny DeManto! Their last meeting put JCW down one door and a ring bell, and it took guest commissioner and former New York Giants Super Bowl Champion Jay Alford to put an end to the match!

When you think of some of the greatest rivalries in the history of professional wrestling, one of the first match-ups that jumps to mind is Ric Flair versus Terry Funk. Their 1989 rivalry epitomized all that is great about pro wrestling: Passionate performers, outstanding promos, amazing intensity, and an aura of authenticity that forced viewers to become emotionally invested.
House of Hardcore officially placed autograph session tickets for Ric Flairand Terry Funk at their 6/22 debut in Philadelphia, PA on sale this morning at www.HouseofHardcore.net. Tommy Dreamer noted on Twitter that he would be announcing new talent and matches for the show on Friday.
