NCW coming to West Warwick on Friday


On Friday August 17, Northeast Championship Wrestling continues its 2012 wrestling season when it returns to the Elks Lodge on 60 Clyde Street in West Warwick, R.I. for its annual summertime showdown – the Big City Rumble.

Competing in a seasonal format from February through November, NCW presents a unique night of entertainment for fans, bringing forth larger than life characters, dynamic storylines and incredible athleticism while providing a unique experience for fans of all ages.

In the night's featured attraction, thirty of NCW's best will compete in an over the top rope battle royal spectacular, with the winner receiving a guaranteed Heavyweight Championship Match against champion Michael "Buddy" Romano November 30th at our final event of the NCW season, WrestleFest VIII.

The tenth Big City Rumble in NCW history, the match will feature talent from all over New England, promising to be an explosive contest.

Plus, in an eight-man elimination tag match, Romano will lead Zero Tolerance (NCW New England Champion "The Showoff" Mike Paiva, "The Heater" Kevin Perry, & David Loomis) against Team Juicy, captained by former Heavyweight Champion "The Juice" JT Dunn, "The RIOT" Kellan Thomas, 2011 Rookie of the Year the Lumberjake, and NCW official Anthony Greene. While Dunn's goal is to win the 2012 Big City Rumble, "The Juice" is relishing the opportunity to finally get his hands on Romano, who stole the Heavyweight Title from him in May.

Also scheduled to be in action August 17th will be Steve "The Turtle" Weiner and "Dynamite" Doug Summers, "The Portuguese Sensation" Ruy Batello, Rob the Giant Araujo, Eddie Loomis, "Dynamic" Jon Thornhill, NCW Tag Team Champions the Unequaled Destroyers, "Simply the Best" GA West, "The Barrington Bulldozer" John Munroe, and many more.

Doors open will open at the air-conditioned Elks Lodge at 7:30 p.m. with an 8 p.m. bell time. Tickets are only $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12-and-under.
