Over 20 of the largest and most popular superstars in the World Wrestling Entertainment will be headed to Albuquerque on Friday, June 14, for the second time this year.
With wrestlers such as the Undisputed Champion Undertaker, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Rob Van Dam strutting their way down the ramp at UNM’s Pit, Friday’s show is one that shouldn’t be missed.
The electrifying and exhilarating entertainment these wrestlers bring to millions via television on a weekly basis is much more exhilarating in a live show.
With personalities larger than life, the wrestlers’ skilled and technical moves make each match better than the last.
During the main event, Undertaker will defend his title as the “Undisputed Champion” against the high-flying tactics of Rob Van Dam.
Van Dam, a virtual new-comer to WWE, may either stop Undertaker with his Van Daminator move or the Five Star Frog Splash in hopes of taking the belt home.
With his confidence up, Van Dam might want to watch for Undertaker’s signature moves — the Choke Slam or the Last Ride.
WHAT? Yes, it’s “Stone Cold” Steve Austin returning to the Land of Enchantment, for the second time in less than six months, to brawl with Eddie Guerrero.
The “Rattle Snake,” who has been known to drink his share of beer wherever and whenever he wants, will take on the wrestler who has lately made his way into Stone Cold’s business.
Friday’s event card also features Bubba Ray Dudley vs. Brock Lesnar; Bradshaw and Matt Hardy vs. the “play by their own rules” New World Order (NWO) Booker T, Big Show and X-Pac; and Shawn Stasiak and D’Lo Brown vs. Goldust and Justin Credible.
Steven Richards will need to bring a barf bag to the ring, just in case his opponent, Tommy Dreamer,
decides to drink, eat or roll around in some type of disgusting matter as they fight for the Hardcore title.
Trish Stratus and Spike Dudley will team up to try and defend their respective title belts in a mixed-tag match against the transformed and nearly unrecognizable Molly Holly and William Regal.
An intergender match with Jacqueline against Crash Holly will surely be one of the fan favorites Friday night.
