Former WWE/WCW SuperStar "Hurricane" Shane Helms Announced For WrestleCade In Winston Salem
"Hurricane" Shane Helms, winner of multiple WCW/WWE championships, has officially agreed to compete in the main event against Matt Hardy at WrestleCade 2012 on November 25 at the Benton Convention Center in Winston Salem, NC.
"Hurricane Helms is another exciting addition to the WrestleCade extravaganza. We're pumped about him coming to Winston Salem and the fact that he answered the open challenge issued by Matt Hardy shows that he has something to prove to the fans," said Myers.
The Hardy/Helms confrontation will be a 30-minute iron man match. "Since this is the first WrestleCade, we wanted this event to be a very special match. That's why they stepped up and agreed to something better than I could have ever imagined."
Also on the card for that night is a Legends Of Starrcade match featuring one-half of The Rock n Roll Express, Ricky Morton with "The Perfect 10" Baby Doll in his corner versus "The Russian Bear" Ivan Kollof in a Russian Chain match. 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.
It was also announced that WCWG 20, YES! Weekly, 98.7 SIMON, Time-Warner Cable and Hauser Rental have come on board as exclusive media partners with others to be announced shortly.
