AWE announces trio of signings
for Night of the Legends PPV
Gore! Gore! Gore! Rhino added to Legends lineup
Awesome Wrestling Entertainment announced today that Rhino has signed with the company and has been added to the card for the AWE Awesome Night of the Legends pay-per-view.
Rhino is a former ECW and TNA World Heavyweight Champion who also won titles in WCW and WWE.
A 17-year ring veteran, “The War Machine” has been in the ring with some of the top names in the business, including Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Sabu, Jeff Hardy and Christian.
‘The Franchise’ Shane Douglas signed for Legends show
The first ECW World Heavyweight Champion also happened to be the last in a long line of NWA World Heavyweight Champions. And that man, Shane Douglas, “The Franchise,” is on his way to Awesome Wrestling Entertainment.
AWE announced today that it has signed Douglas for the AWE Awesome Night of the Legends pay-per-view.
A four-time ECW World Champ, Douglas was a key player during the heyday of the Philadelphia-based promotion, and was ranked as high as #20 on the Pro Wrestling Illustrated PWI 500 in 1996.
Douglas also had reigns as WWE Intercontinental Champ and WCW United States Champ and is a two-time former WCW World Tag Team Champion.
Saturn signed for Night of Legends
Former WCW World TV Champ and former WWE European Champ Perry Saturn wil make his in-ring return to professional wrestling at the AWE Awesome Night of the Legends pay-per-view.
Saturn has been out of wrestling since being sidelined by a 2002 ACL injury.
He had a brief but significant run at the top of the mat game that included stints in ECW, WCW and WWE. He is perhaps best remembered for his jump from WCW to WWE in 2000 with Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero and Dean Malenko as The Radicalz.

The Night of the Legends pay-per-view is set for Saturday, Oct. 15. Night of the Legends will be available to viewers in the United States and Canada via InDemand, DirecTV, AGTV and Bell TV and worldwide at AWEonPPV.com.
