Summer Sizzler Weekend Live Events July 21-22 @ West Paterson:
Ross Family Members Challenge for Championship Gold

(WEST PATERSON, NJ)- Feel the heat as live Independent Wrestling Federation action returns with Summer Sizzler Weekend on Saturday, July 21, 7:30 pm, and Sunday, July 22, 4:00 pm, at IWF Centre, 32 Willow Way, West Paterson, NJ. Here is a preview…

The card for day one July 21st features a gigantic Double Main Event as Ross Family Members challenge for championship gold. In an IWF Heavyweight Title Match, champion Tony Torres of Latin Revolution with Eloy Fiesta faces the 340-pound mastodon Franciz with Commissioner Rich Ross. This month on the Eruption Webcast on www.WrestlingIWF.com, Torres and Franciz’ hatred for one another spilled all over IWF Centre in two separate uncontrollable brawls. Now they settle their differences July 21 with the gold at stake. Can Franciz put an abrupt end to Torres’ eight-month title reign?

The IWF Tag Team Titles are up for grabs in a rematch from last month’s Commissioner’s Cup Tag Team Tournament Finals as champions Kevin Knight and Nick Sabre battle IWF American Champion Travis Blake and Outlaw Shane O’Brien of The Ross Family. After Blake and SOB upended Knight and Sabre to capture the 5th Annual Commissioner’s Cup Crown on June 24, they now look to regain the titles on behalf of Boss Ross. Blake himself is a former four-time co-holder of tag gold while O’Brien shared the belts on two previous occasions.

In a Triple Threat Elimination Match for the IWF Junior Heavyweight Title, champion Antonio Rivera of Latin Revolution meets Jana and former American Champion Chris Steeler. The bickering duo of Jana and Steeler were eliminated from the Commissioner’s Cup last month by Latin Revolution. Their split continues as they enter this three-way-dance with Rivera’s belt going to the sole survivor.

There is a number one contender’s bout for a future IWF American Title shot against Travis Blake that pits former Tag Team Champion partners Steve Camacho and Burnin’ Mike Durnin against one another in singles competition. Friendship will be set aside as only one man can claim this coveted contender’s spot to challenge for the American Title.

In other singles action July 21st, Daniel Schwartz squares off against former American Champion Justin Corino, while Big Nick Gregory tangles with the rugged Frank Scoleri. Referee is Jason Roberts.

On day two July 22nd, the formidable duo of Justin Corino and Frank Scoleri challenge for the IWF Tag Team Titles against the winning team of the match from the previous evening between Kevin Knight and Nick Sabre, and Travis Blake and Shane O’Brien. As they discussed on the Eruption Webcast, Corino and Scoleri advanced to the semifinals of the Commissioner’s Cup and proved they are more than worthy of a title shot.

In a Special Challenge Match, Antonio Rivera with Eloy Fiesta must defy the odds and attempt to slay Franciz with Commissioner Rich Ross. After their bouts from the previous evening, will Rivera still hold the Junior Title as he walks into this contest, and will Franciz be the new Heavyweight Champion?

Also appearing July 22 are IWF Champion Tony Torres, Steve Camacho, Mike Durnin, Chris Steeler, Dan Marques, Jason Roberts, Jana, and referee Matt Bennett. Much more to be announced, so check back soon for details.

Contribution is $10 per event general admission. With your Saturday ticket stub, Sunday is half-price at $5. Tickets available at the door 30-minutes before bell-time. For information visit www.WrestlingIWF.com. Cards subject to change.
