New match just added!
“Balls Hot” Troy Lords vs “Mdogg20” Matt Cross
Two of the eight men who will be competing in the Super Indy tournament on April 25 will square off in a pre-show match at the Night of Legends. Former Super Indy champion Troy Lords will take on half of the Burning River Brigade, Matt Cross, as both men look to build momentum heading into the Super Indy tournament.
Michael “The Bomber” Facade vs CJ Sensation
After being put out of action by the Family, Michael Facade has just been cleared to return to the ring. With his tag partner Johnny Gargano already occupied, “The Bomber” will return to singles action against CJ Sensation in this pre-show contest.
Demolition vs The Powers of Pain:
Ax and Smash, the original members of Demolition and three-time World Wrestling Federation tag team champions, square off against former WWF adversaries, the Warlord and the Barbarian, the Powers of Pain. Two of the most physically dominating tandems in wrestling history renew a rivalry of nearly 20 years. Although both the Warlord and Barbarian enjoyed successful careers as singles competitors, united they were nearly unstoppable. One team that did get the better of this powerful duo, however, was Demolition at WrestleMania V. With revenge on their minds, the Powers of Pain look to settle the score inside the IWC ring.
Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake vs Greg “The Hammer” Valentine
Former tag team partners do battle as the “Dream Team” fights for supremacy at the Night of Legends. Both men are noted singles competitors, as well as known for teaming with fellow legends (Valentine with the Honky Tonk Man, Beefcake with Hulk Hogan). Each man will look to utilize his finishing submission, as Beefcake will attempt to lock in his sleeper, while Valentine will attempt to apply his figure-four. Whoever scores his submission hold first is likely to come out the victor.
Marty Jannetty vs Virgil
Two men who held championships in the WWF in the early 90’s will compete at the Night of Legends, as Marty Jannetty and Virgil will lock horns. Jannetty, one half of the legendary tag team The Rockers, captured gold as the Intercontinental Champion by defeating his former partner and future Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels. Not to be outdone, Virgil won the Million Dollar Title from Ted Dibiase after rebelling against his former superior. While no titles will be on the line this time, bragging rights will be.
John McChesney vs Jake “The Snake” Roberts
On April 12, the legendary Jake the Snake will face perhaps a future legend, “Fabulous” John McChesney. Roberts, noted as the innovator of the DDT, has promised to bring a “slithery surprise” to the ring with him. His veteran prowess may give him the edge over his opponent, but McChesney will be highly motivated, as he must win this contest to qualify for the Super Indy VII tournament.
Abdullah the Butcher vs Tommy Rich
Two legends each with over 30 years experience do battle as the hardcore legend Abdullah the Butcher takes on former NWA champion Tommy Rich. Abdullah is internationally notorious for his violent and brutal matches, therefore Tommy Rich may fall victim to his assault at the Night of Legends.
Dennis Gregory vs Ricky Reyes
Two former IWC champions rekindle their rivalry from nearly a year ago, as Ricky Reyes is out to exact revenge on Dennis Gregory. Reyes, the Havana Pitbull, was cheated out of the title by Gregory on multiple occasions, and while he cannot regain his championship in this contest, he can get payback while also building momentum towards his appearance in Super Indy VII.
Four-Way Tag: Babyface Fire vs Sexual Harassment vs The Gambino Brothers vs Johnny Gargano & Raymond Rowe
The Tag Team champions Babyface Fire would’ve had their hands full in their originally scheduled non-title contest against Sexual Harassment. By popular demand, however, two more teams have been added to the mix to create an exciting four-way tag. The Gambino Brothers join Johnny Gargano and his partner Raymond Rowe, who was recruited to fill in for the injured Bomber Michael Facade. While their belts will not be at stake, Babyface Fire may be facing their toughest challenge to date in this encounter.
Shirley Doe & Super Hentai vs The Hollywood Balds
Former two-time IWC Heavyweight champion Shirley Doe teams up with a familiar face as he and Hentai battle the Hollywood Balds. The Balds, comprised of Jimmy Demarco and Vendetta, have made life miserable for Doe and Hentai in recent months, and will look to continue the torment on April 12.
Also Appearing: “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart
Renowned manager and WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart will be appearing at the Night of Legends. Known for his trademark megaphone, Hart managed some of the greatest stars in wrestling history, including Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, the Hart Foundation, The Nasty Boys, Rick Rude and the Honky Tonk Man.
