MCWJake Roberts cancer surgery, Meet X-Pac, Matt Hardy coming to MD, and more news from Maryland Championship Wrestling


I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to read the MCW online newsletter. We have been busy adding to our 2014 schedule. Please see the bottom right of this newsletter for an updated 2014 schedule.

Many emails and calls are coming in wondering if Jake”The Snake” Roberts will still be appearing on March 22nd Tag Wars 2K14 after the recent announcement that he had to have emergency surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his leg.

Jake has confirmed at this point he will be there. He is taking a couple of weeks off to heal from the surgery and will make his first appearance in New jersey on March 14th the week before our event. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jake during this tough time and we will keep you updated on any changes.

If you have any questions for me or MCW please send them to [email protected] and I will personally make sure they are answered promptly.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy the latest edition of the MCW News wire and I hope to see you at our final event of 2013 “Tribute To The Legends” on December 28th.
