"There have been some incredible three-way matches in that building... But nothing like the fans will see this night," says two-time X-Division champion The Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels. "This will be a very special night, and we have every intention on not only topping ourselves, but topping the previous two-way matches that have been held in this historic building as well."

Also appearing June 9th will be the New Alhambra debut of "The King of the Mountain" Jeff Jarrett.

"I've been waiting for the day that I could step foot in that dump of a building and tell those idiot fans in Philadelphia what I really think of them ... face to face." Jarrett said from his Nashville home. "Those Philadelphia fans are used to nothing but backyard wrestlers. It s about time they will finally get to see what a real third generation wrestling superstar looks like."
