— The following preview for Friday’s FWE iPPV was sent out today…
In less than a week, June 21st, the second annual “Welcome To The Rumble” will take place live at The Elmcor Center in Corona, NY and live on iPPV (www.wwnlive.com). The winner of the Welcome To The Rumble Match will receive a shot at either the World Heavyweight Title, The Tri-Borough Title or World Tag Team Titles. They may choose and have up to June 21st, 2014 to use that shot.
F.W.E. World Heavyweight Championship Match:
Carlito Colon vs John Hennigan fka John Morrison: Making his F.W.E. debut will be none other than John Hennigan, the former John Morrison! Colon and Hennigan have feuded in the past so these men know each other well. This match is sure to be in the F.W.E. highlight reel and talked about for quite some time. Will Hennigan pull a page out of Colon’s book and win a Championship during his debut appearance or will Colon’s reign over F.W.E. continue?
“The Innovator Of Violence” Tommy Dreamer vs “The Whole F’N Show” Rob Van Dam: In another debut, making this the first time this match has happened in years, Rob Van Dam makes his FWE debut when he faces his old ECW friend and rival, Tommy Dreamer. Dreamer, the former FWE World Heavyweight Champion is coming off of a loss in his quest to regain the FWE Championship when Carlito Colon retained the title at No Limits ’13 in a TLC Match with Matt Hardy also involved. Dreamer would love nothing more than to get a huge victory the night before House of Hardcore 2 takes place. RVD on the other hand is looking to become “Mr. FWE” or Mr. iPPV” and 5 Star Frog Splash his way to contention for a FWE Title.
FWE Tri-Borough Championship Match:
Paul London vs Akio Yang: At “No Limits ’13” London defeated tag team partner and best friend Brian Kendrick to earn a shot at Damien Darling and the FWE Tri-Borough Championship and he ended the reign of the longest reigning Tri-Borough Champion. At the same event, we saw the debut of Jimmy Wang Yang when he defeated Sonjay Dutt. During and post event, Yang has been tormented by Stone Cold ET. He has reverted to a darker side of himself and Akio Yang will emerge to attempt to wrest the Tri-Borough Title from London.
Tag Team Warfare:
Jigsaw & Tony Nese vs The Young Bucks: After making their debut at “No Limits ’13” in an incredible Four Way Match, Jigsaw & Tony Nese become partners. Their opponents almost wrestled away the F.W.E. World Tag Team Titles from Adrenaline Express at “No Limits ’13.” After winning a hellacious Gauntlet Match to face AE, they came up just a hair short. The Bucks are pissed and want nothing more than to receive another shot at AE. If Jigsaw & Nese can hand them another loss, they would have to shoot up the ladder of the Tag Team Rankings.
Angelina Love & Katarina Leigh vs Maria Kanellis (FWE Womens Champion) & Ivelisse Velez: The cream of the crop in the Women’s division. This match has a lot going on in it. We have the reformation of the Angelina/Katarina pairing, their first time teaming in a FWE ring. Angelina failed to become the champion at “No Limits ’13” and Katarina has been attempting to get another crack at Maria after the belt was stolen from her at FWE: X. Ivelisse made an impressive FWE debut at “No Limits ’13” when she defeated Reby Sky. Now two of the most dominant females in FWE team up to take out their challengers. When all the dust is settled, will we see Angelina and Katarina standing tall and then go on to see who will get a shot at Maria? Will Maria and Ivelisse stand tall and might that help but Ivelisse in line for a shot?
Brian Kendrick vs “Maple Leaf Muscle” Petey Williams: This match was originally supposed to take place at “Dysfunctional Family” Brian Kendrick will face Petey Williams. They have had limited ring time when they were in the Dream 6 Man Tag at “Back 2 Brooklyn.” This match could go a long way in deciding a top contender for the Tri – Borough Championship. Kendrick would love to score a victory here as he lost to London at “No Limits ’13.” Petey came out the winner in a huge 4 Way match that involved Wes Draven, Jigsaw & Tony Nese. He’d love to increase his winning streak.
Welcome To The Rumble: Welcome To The Rumble is a game changer. During last year’s we saw everything from Tag teams entering together, Eric Young reclaiming his stolen F.W.E. World Heavyweight Championship from Charlie Haas, Daivari making a shocking debut, A.J. Pan entering the Rumble and Jay Lethal winning Welcome To The Rumble and later on challenging and defeating Eric Young to become the F.W.E. World Heavyweight Champion. Who will enter this year? Already announced are: The Patriot, Jorge Santi, Paul London, Mike Bennett, Adrenaline Express (FWE World Tag Team Champions), Sam Shields, The Young Bucks, Diamond Inc., Bandido Jr., Alex Reynolds, Chris Mordetzky (fka Chris Masters), Damien Darling, Stone Cold ET, Wes Draven, Akio Yang & Johnny Knockout.
