"I'm still in awe," said Tracy Myers, brainchild behind WrestleCade. "Minutes after we discovered that Shane Douglas was showing up at our event uninvited, Raven and Lodi offer to show up to take care of Douglas! To respectfully quote Jim Ross: Business is about to pick up!"
Raven has competed for ECW, NWA, WCW, WWE, ROH and TNA. He is a three-time World Champion and the record holder for most reigns as WWE Hardcore Champion with 39 reigns. Overall, Raven has won 36 different championships.
Raven's Flock was a faction in WCW that was formed in 1997 with Raven, Lodi and several other wrestlers. They disbanded in 1998 and Uncle Frank's Championship Wrestling is honored to have a reunion of two of those members at WrestleCade 2012 in Winston Salem, NC on November 25, 2012.
Also on the card that night is former WWE, TNA and ECW World Champion Matt Hardy battling former TNA TV Champion, Gunner in a 30-minute iron man match.

WrestleCade 2012 is a “family friendly event” and it is also a fundraiser for Christmas Toy Drive. Christmas Toy Drive partners with The Salvation Army to provide toys to less fortunate boys and girls during the Christmas season. In 2011, over 2,000 toys were collected and the goal for 2012 is to double, triple or quadruple this number. The goal of the WrestleCade organizers is to have a successful event that will help that number be reached.
