Punta Gorda, Fl – February 23, 2011

Florida Championship Wrestling is proud to announce its return to Punta Gorda, FL on Wednesday, March 16th. As an added bonus to the show, company officials have revealed that WWE Raw Superstar Ted Dibiase will be making a special appearance. Dibiase will be on hand to sign autographs for fans prior to the show but will also be in action later that night as he teams with his younger brother Brett.

Ted Dibiase is no stranger to notoriety within the industry. Since joining the ranks of World Wrestling Entertainment in 2008, the third generation superstar has carried on the legacy created by his Hall of Fame Father, the Million Dollar Man. In less than three years Dibiase has been a multiple time World Tag Team Champion, formed formidable alliances with WWE Superstars Randy Orton and Cody Rhodes and even sported the same Million Dollar Championship worn by his father. Most recently, Dibiase has aligned himself with current WWE Diva Maryse on the company’s flagship program, Monday Night Raw. Having cut his teeth in FCW prior to moving on to WWE, Ted Dibiase’s return is a homecoming of sorts. Adding to the prestige of the event, Dibiase will be teaming with his younger brother Brett for the first time ever in Punta Gorda.

FCW rolls into the Charlotte Harbor Event Center located at 75 Taylor Street in Punta Gorda, FL on Wednesday, March 16th. Bell Time is 7pm.
