Final Four Participants named for this year’s big event.

This year’s version of the annual event will be the 7th installment of the Tournament to honor late Florida Independent wrestler, ?The All American? Jeff Peterson. In November, 2002 IPW Hardcore wrestler Jeff Peterson lost his battle with cancer. May 16-17, 2003 saw the beginning of the Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup, a sixteen competitor cruiserweight tournament in honor of the fallen star. Each year since the event has grown to international levels. Previous winners include, ?Reckless Youth? Tom Carter, Justice, Chris Sabin, Milano Collection AT, Chris Hero, and Erick Stevens.

The 2009 Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup will take place over the course of 2 evenings, Friday November 20th, 2009 and Saturday November 21st, 2009 at the Brooksville, Florida and Crystal River, Florida National Guard Armories respectively.

In a new twist for this year’s event, the 16 participants for the tournament will come from 4 of the hottest independent companies in the US, with each company entering 4 wrestlers to represent their company. This year’s field will represent Florida’s own Full Impact Pro Wrestling, Philadelphia’s Combat Zone Wrestling, Chicago’s AAW, and Ohio’s Hybrid Pro Wrestling.

The final four entrants into the 2009 JPC have been named, and come to the field from Hybrid Pro Wresting in Ohio. Representing Hybrid will be:


This announcement completes the field and brings the number of athletes entered to a total of 16. We will announce the first round pairings in the coming days so stay tuned for more updates.

Tournament officials are happy to announce that making their 3rd straight appearances as play by play and color commentators for the DVD release of this event are Lenny Leonard and Scott Hudson.

Lenny is currently the voice of Dragon Gate USA on PPV and DVD as well as Full Impact Pro Wrestling, while Scott is a veteran of the Monday Night Wars and his extensive career has seen him as part of the broadcast team for WCW on both TV and PPV.

Special VIP ticket ?extra? announced!

JPC officials had informed us that as a special added bonus for fans who purchase VIP tickets, there was to be an exclusive preshow card featuring Pro Wrestling Riot on both evenings. The preshow card will take place at 6:30 pm, and was to be only for those fans that had or will purchase VIP tickets to each event. Tournament officials today have announced that the Pro Wrestling Riot preshow card will also now be available to any ticketholders that buy 1st row tickets for either event as well? Tickets are moving fast so don?t miss out on this extra added bonus.

BIG non tournament match news!

In addition to the tournament matches taking place both nights, we will have other tremendous action taking place as always.

Friday night in Brooksville will feature a very special Tag Team Rumble.

Saturday night in Crystal River we will have our own version of the Dragon Gate USA FRAY!

The 8 men eliminated in round 1 of the JPC will be entered into FRAY, which will be taped for inclusion as a special bonus match on the DVD release of Dragon Gate USA’s 11/28 Open the Freedom Gate Tournament .

The rules of Fray are simple. There will be eight participants. Their entry into the match will be drawn at random. The match will start with two contestants. Every two minutes another competitor will join Fray. Eliminations can take place at anytime by pinfall, submission or DQ. There are no count outs. The final survivor is your winner.

Violence promises to be on tap for Night 2!

The fiery rhetoric is starting to heat up between Ron Bass and Sean Davis in advance of their Texas Bullrope Match on night 2 of the JPC. Both men have been trading angry comments back and forth, and when we had the opportunity this week to check on the preparations for each man, that didn?t change at all.

Ron Bass invited us out to his ranch in North Hillsborough county to talk and it didn?t take long to see the veteran tough guy means business. Bass was ?back in the saddle? as it was, riding and roping cattle before heading into the barn to throw some heavy weights around and hit the heavy bag. It is clear Bass is taking this very seriously, and that could spell trouble for Sean Davis. ?I had heard how Davis stuck is nose into things when I got to FIP, but I didn?t hear how big his mouth was. Well come November 21st I?m gonna do something I don?t think has ever been done before. I?m gonna shut that fat windbag’s mouth?permanently.?

Sean Davis however was content to let his mouth so his working out when we stopped by. ?Old man Bass doesn?t stand a chance against me. What is he now, like 80? Well this isn?t 1983, and I?m no Dirty Yellow Dog. November 21st I?m gonna do to you what they did to Old Yeller. I?m gonna take you out back, and put you out of your misery.?
