2007 JPC News, Night One Main Event Announced!

Pro Wrestling Warfare (formerly NWA Florida/IPW-Hardcore) annually holds the Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup every year to support the memory of independent wrestler, "the All American" Jeff Peterson who died of cancer in 2002. Many great wrestlers throughout the world have been a part of this tournament like WSX stars Human Tornado, Joey Ryan, Jack Evans, Jimmy Jacobs and Teddy Hart, TNA Wrestling’s Alex Shelley, Sonjay Dutt and Petey Williams, CZW’s Ruckus, ROH & FIP’s “Messiah of the Backbreaker” Roderick Strong, Chris Hero, B-Boy, Puma, NWA World Tag Team champion “Notorious 187” Homicide plus the 2003 winner “Reckless Youth” Tom Carter, 2004 winner Justice, 2005 winner Chris Sabin and 2006 winner Milano Collection AT.

This year’s event is July 13th in Orlando and July 14th in Port Richey, Florida. Night one will host the entire opening round and some other matches to be announced. Night two will feature the other JPC tournament rounds with the main event winner destined to make someone an international name.

With that in mind the main event of Night one of the 2007 Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup in Orlando Florida is RAGE IN THE CAGE 9!!

What makes this one of the most dangerous matches in wrestling? 20 (or more) competitors will enter the Rage in the Cage battle royal.... all armed with weapons. Elimination occurs when someone is tossed from the cage, either through the door or over the top crashing down to the floor some ten or twelve feet below. The come as you are battle royal in a cage as been a staple in Florida and is the longest reigning tradition in the state. This brainchild of “the Hardcore Giant” Ron Niemi came to fruition in IPW-Hardcore in August of 1999 in Crystal River, Florida.

The first RITC saw co-winners as Sonny T and Rick Thames of the tag team Southern Posse ended their feud to reunite and start their war with the Shane Brothers, back then known as Phi DeKappa U. Past winners include Florida standouts “Freedom Ryder” Mike Sullivan, Rod Steele, “The Marquee” Bruce Santee, Lex Lovett, Sedrick Strong and Jeff Peterson Cup 2007 competitor Erick Stevens.

Past competitors in this ultra violent battlefield have included almost every independent wrestler in Florida along with Madman Pondo and the Extreme Icon the Sandman! Weaponry has ranged from chairs, pizza cutters, barbwire, cooking utensils, florescent light tubes and bats to Josh Rich bringing a fireplace size knight’s armor and Aaron Epic wrapping himself in packing bubble.

We are happy to announce the tradition of violence is continuing at the Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup 2007! Be sure to look online for information on tickets and a website which will feature information on the 16 competitors in the 2007 Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup.
