“Shelly did some incredible work in the WWE and ECW,” said Myers. "Her portrayal of Ariel with the New Breed (Elijah Burke, Matt Striker, and Marcus Cor Von) was not only original but also stunning. When we asked wrestling fans who they wanted to see at WrestleCade, Shelly's name kept coming up. That's why we called her and we're fortunate that she accepted."
Also on the card that night is Matt Hardy/TNA Gunner 30-minute iron man match. “Since this is the first WrestleCade, we wanted this event to feature a very special match. That’s why they stepped up and agreed to something better than I could have ever imagined. Matt Hardy and Gunner will bring the house down.”
Other exciting additions to WrestleCade line-up include: "Hurricane" Helms, Colt Cabana, CW Anderson, Lodi, Shane Douglas and Raven. Other matches featuring legends and multiple past champions from the WWE, WCW, TNA, ROH, ECW and NWA will be announced over the next few weeks.

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. For more information about Christmas Toy Drive, visit http://christmastoydrive.com
The announcement that WrestleCade is coming to Winston Salem also represents a great opportunity for local businesses to get involved and be seen by 2,000+ people who are sure to be travelling to downtown Winston Salem from all around the country and especially the Southeast. One of those businesses already pledging support is one of Myers’ other business ventures, Frank Myers Auto Maxx. Myers said, “With this being a family friendly show, the profits going directly to an awesome organization like Christmas Toy Drive in addition to giving my dealership an opportunity to speak directly to potential customers..this is truly a win-win for all parties involved. I would like to encourage other local businesses to get involved. It’s inexpensive and is for a great cause.” Myers asked interested businesses to call him direct at 336-831-0646 for sponsorship and/or information about supporting WrestleCade and Christmas Toy Drive.
