Once in a lifetime, a wrestling supercard comes along that changes wrestling history: Showdown at Shea, the Brian Pillman Memorial Show, The War To Settle The Score, The Crockett Cup, Wrestlemania III, One Night Stand.
Now, Pittsburgh gets its own supercard: Steel City Wrestlefest! On May 24th at the Rostraver Ice Garden, the biggest names in wrestling all convene under one roof for the first time ever. And this time, it’s for charity. Steel City Wrestlefest benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle will return home to Pittsburgh to face off with Bubba The Bulldog! The B-94 morning man spent the better part of 2007 calling out Angle, demanding Angle come face to face with him. Bubba finally gets his wish, as Angle is coming to Steel City Wrestlefest with one thing in mind: shutting up Bubba the Bulldog! But Bubba has promised to have two cornermen with him. What’s the story there? Will the odds stack up against Angle?
If Kurt Angle wasn’t enough Pittsburgh wrestling for you, the “Living Legend” Bruno Sammartino will also be in the house! What can be said about Sammartino that hasn’t been said before? He is a former 2-time WWWF World Heavyweight Champion. His first reign began as he defeated the first champion, “Nature Boy” Buddy Rodgers, at Madison Square Garden. The reign would last an amazing 8 years, a record that has yet to be broken. Bruno also set another record: the first wrestler to hold the WWWF Championship twice, defeated Stan “The Man” Stasiak, and holding the title for another 3 years. Bruno has kept his distance from the wrestling business, only choosing to attend the most special events. Steel City Wrestlefest is no different!
For the first time ever, “The Masterpiece” Chris Masters will be taking on the “Iron City Superstar” Sterling James Keenan! The current 1PW, FNW, NWA East, AIW, Xero Underground, and Ballpark Brawl Champion SJK is on a hot streak, collecting title after title. 2008 has been SJK’s year, and a win over the former WWE star would make 2008 even sweeter.
Two top teams will be competing for tag team supremacy on May 24th. Chris Hamrick & Tracy Smothers, Southern Comfort, are former IWC, 1PW, and IWA Mid-South Tag Team Champions. While both men were stars in ECW, Smothers also held the ECW Tag Team Titles. The HeartThrobs are former OVW Tag Team Champions and former WWE stars. Romeo Roselli & Antonio “The Promise” Thomas are coming to Rostraver to prove they’re the best tag team around.
Speaking of tag teams, Shiima Xion & Jason Gory of BabyFace Fire will be in action on May 24th! The current IWC Tag Team Champions have put out a challenge to any team willing to take them on! Who will step up to the plate and take on the hottest young team in Pittsburgh?
One-half of the former WWE Tag Team Champions MNM, Joey Mercury, will also be in action on May 24th! Mercury wrestled in Pittsburgh early in his career as Joey Matthews for Steel City Wrestling. There’s no word on who Mercury will be taking on, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
In pre-show action, former NWA East Heavyweight Champion & IWC Tag Team Champion “The Spotlight” Scottie Gash will be taking on the leader of the Rebel’s Army, former ECW & CZW star Rockin’ Rebel! This will be quite the test for Gash, as he has never wrestled anybody quite like the Rebel in his career!
All that plus much much more! Keep checking back to www.steelcitywrestlefest.vze.com for more updates on this HUGE card!
