Kevin Nash, DDP, Terry Funk & Lita: MAJOR WWE/TNA NEWS

Professional wrestling returns to its hardcore roots Saturday night, October 15 when 30 all-stars appear at the “AWE Wrestling: Night Of The Legends” Pay-Per-View event, live from Augusta Expo in Fishersville, Virginia.

Wrestling icons being showcased include “Big Sexy” Kevin Nash, Diamond Dallas Page (“DDP”), The Rock-n-Roll Express, Terry Funk, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Fit Finlay, Tommy Dreamer, Amy “Lita” Dumas, Perry Saturn, and many more.

The Awesome Wrestling Entertainment extravaganza will be available for live viewing at 9 PM/ET – 6 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, AT & T and Verizon in the United States, as well as Bell TV in Canada, for a suggested retail price of only $24.95. The broadcast will also be available live on an Internet pay-per-view basis at AWEonPPV.com and GFL.TV.

“AWE is all about old-school wrestling with today’s look – glitz, glamour and a light show to rival any other wrestling pay-per-views,” AWE founder Marvin Ward explained. “It’s the best of both worlds. This is what real pro wrestling fans want, not the soap opera shows they’ve been getting. Instead of watching the typical 2 ½-hour-pay per view with four matches and two hours of talk, AWE is pro wrestling from start to finish: less talk, more action.”

Ward, a former wrestler himself turned entrepreneur had more to say: “Young wrestling fans will have an opportunity to see legends who they’ve heard so much about, while older fans will be able to turn-back time, watching their heroes again. Young fans will see where wrestling evolved from and how it got where it is today. This is an opportunity for young and old fans to come together as wrestling families, enjoying a memorable evening, one that will probably never happen again with so many wrestling legends featured on one show.”

The feature match pits 7’ 1’, 300-plus pound Kevin Nash, a former WWE and WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and his mystery tag-team partner, somebody who could very well be an infamous member of ‘The Clique,” against former three-time NWA Tag Team Champions, The Rock-n-Roll Express. Ricky Morton, one half of famed “The Rock-n-Roll Express” along with Robert Gibson, and Nash have had a hateful relationship for a decade, and the two are going to settle the score Oct. 15 in front of a live national television/Internet audience and packed live house in Virginia.

To determine the real King of Hardcore wrestling, ageless Terry Funk goes to war with former ECW superstar Tommy Dreamer. Funk, a two-time heavyweight champion in the ECW and NWA, as well as a multi-organization Hall of Famer, has inspired countless wrestlers aspiring to emulate his hardcore style of wrestling. Dreamer, known as the hardcore heart-and-sold of the ECW, is a 14-time WWF/WWE Hardcore Champion and two-time ECW world title-holder.

Patriotic “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, proudly waving an American flag with his trademark 2 X 4 in his other hand, will enter the ring to take on Mohammad Akbar, the sneering son of an Arab-American oil magnate.

The biggest comeback in wrestling history will take place when, after a nine-year absence, past WCW and WWE star Perry Saturn returns to face enforcer CW Anderson.

Also scheduled to be in action is former WWE and WCW title-holder Fit Finlay against 21-year-old rising-star “Loose Cannon” Alex Silva, who is considered a future AWE World Heavyweight contender. He will have “Nature Boy” Buddy Landel in his corner. Sonjay Dutt faces Jamin Olivencia.

The action doesn’t stop there. Also scheduled for this exciting Awesome Wrestling Entertainment (AWE) card is former three-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion and one of the most popular wrestlers of all-time, Diamond Dallas Page (“DDP”), as well as Amy Dumas (formerly known as Lita), former World Tag Team Champion and member of the “Four Horsemen,” Tully Blanchard and Babydoll, in addition to Midnight Express, Ivan Koloff, and Tommy “Wildfire” Rich.

All wrestlers and matches are subject to change.
