PRESS RELEASE: JCW announces April events that include WWE/ECW legends and superstars

JCWWord seems to be spreading that Jersey 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!
