World Premiere Wrestling will hold a charity wrestling event at Resorts World Casino New York City this Saturday night, March 8.

“Resurrection” will feature a long set list of wrestling favorites who will compete in the ring on the casino’s Central Park events floor.

Among the wrestlers who will be performing are two-time hall of famer JJ Dillon, Cowboy Bob Orton, Homicide, Greek God Papadon, Amazing Red, Justin Credible, Chris Taylor, Brian X and The Almighty Sheik.

The WPW has it’s own NASCAR vehicle that will also be at the casino and patrons can take photos with it. Body paint artist Margarita Dominguez will be at the event.

The festivities start at 2 p.m. with autograph signings and a pre-show, called “Holy Grail,” which will last until 6 p.m. Doors to the main show open at 6:45 p.m. and “Resurrection” will start at 7:30 p.m.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Safe Haven for Babies, a charity that helps parents in crisis who want to give up their newborns safely and legally.

The show is one of six events World Premiere Wresting — a family-operated independent wrestling company based in Howard Beach — is scheduled to host at the casino.

Guido Salvo, president of World Premiere Wrestling, said wrestling fans will enjoy the type of program WPW puts together.

“The kind of show we put on is a real high-class show,” he said.

Salvo said he expects more surprise guests to appear.

Advanced tickets are $50 for ringside seats and $30 for general admission and can be purchased at WPWwrestling.com, RWnewyork.com or at the Resorts World Casino box office.

Tickets can be purchased on the day of the event for $60 for ringside and $40 general admission.

Welcome to the discussion.
