Scheduled on the super show is the main event that will match up world champion versus world champion in a title unification match. The current SECW Champion Doomsday will challenge AWF Champion Jeff Collett in a AWF Undisputed World Championship match. Collett is a former member of the legendary Midnight Express managed by Jim Cornette. At this show, Collett will be managed by Jon Diamond. This show will be very personal for the SECW Champion Doomsday who resides in Harriman. Doomsday was diagnosed with basil cell skin cancer in 2006 and it mutated into Gorlin Syndrome in 2011. There is no cure for Gorlin Syndrome and the only way to slow the rate of the cancer growth is surgeries. “I became Doomsday as an act of defiance against cancer. I was not going to let it beat me and I won’t. I not only have a opportunity to do something wonderful for those like me who battle cancer every day but I get to do it in the town I live in”, replied Doomsday. Sp far Doomsday has undergone 8 facial surgeries to remove moderate to large cancer growths and had the surgeries during breaks he took from the sport. Doomsday won the 2012 Most Inspirational Pro Wrestler of the Year award for his stand against cancer and he has wrestled in every state in the southeastern United States in his seven years in pro wrestling.
Also on the card is former WCW, ECW, WWE star “The Paradise Rocker” Johnny Meadows. Meadows will be facing Noah Richards in the semi main event of the show. A much anticipated battle for the AWF Tennessee Heavyweight Championship will also be held as The Deathstalker managed by Jon Diamond will defend against Johnny Deacon. Fans will also see a battle royal to determine a number one contender for the AWF Championship. “The Playboy” Johnny Newsome will take on Freakshow in a strap match and “The Arabian Assassin” Toal Altair will come and team up with Racer to take on Gerald Strange and Aaron Lucas in tag team action. Other great matches will be featured. AWF prides itself on presenting a family show and looks forward to assisting the Roane County Relay For Life in raising money to help those with cancer.
