AWE Night of the Legends will be broadcast into 120 million households in the United States and Canada via InDemand, Dish TV, DirecTV, AGTV and worldwide through AWEOnDemand.com.
The event will feature such world-renowned wrestling celebrities as Kevin Nash, "Diamond" Dallas Page, Terry Funk, Tommy Dreamer, "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, The Rock-n-Roll Express, David Finlay and Tammy Sytch. More than 30 legendary grapplers will gather to renew historic rivalries for enthusiasts from around the world.
"We are very excited that we have this opportunity to introduce our company and AWE brand to fans around the world," AWE founder Marvin Ward said. "We are proving there is a mass following for our company and a huge demand for our product and brand of wrestling."
"The support generated for AWE from fans around the world, without a major television outlet and weekly TV series to promote the product, is unheard off in this industry," said Chris Graham, the director of marketing for Awesome Wrestling Entertainment.
The interest in AWE is built around the real-life drama between Kevin Nash and Ricky Morton of the Rock-n-Roll Express, whose animosities dating back to their WCW days have made their way into mainstream media with interviews dating back 10 years. After signing the main-event match for Night of the Legends pitting Nash and his tag-team partner, Doug Gibson, against The Rock-n-Roll Express in June, AWE used Facebook and YouTube to draw fan interest in the match with a series of videos starring the participants.
"Wrestling fans are tired and burnt out on current wrestling programs seen on TV today. Weekly shows have drifted away from the rich tradition of old school wrestling that I grew up watching. You don't get the feeling that it's the good guy versus the bad guy or the believability that the opponents truly dislike each other with today's wrestling. The real-life drama that two people dislike each other and really want to fight is what's missing from wrestling. AWE will bring back to fans the tradition of professional wrestling that has been missing for such a long time," Ward said.
The card for the show will be announced on Monday, Sept. 19, at 11 a.m.
