UWF Combines Hip Hop Music And Professional Wrestling To Present The Feuds Of The Streets As Unprecedented Entertainment

MAY 18 – NEW YORK – It’s no secret that there’s been an age-old battle for turf domination brewing in America’s urban neighborhoods; a battle that will now be settled inside the ropes. The ring is the new block. On Friday, June 3rd, disputes will boil over and total domination will be the prize, as the latest innovation in sports entertainment, the Urban Wrestling Federation (UWF), debuts live New York City.

The UWF is kicking off with a star-studded battle between the toughest thugs in the hip-hop community. Rappers such as Melle Mel, Red Café, Big Block, Uncle Murda, Brisco, Billy Blue, Gorilla Zoe, Gun Play and Cuban Link have signed onto the UWF. You can expect a variety of these hip-hop bosses to be in the ring for the fight to own their turf. In addition, these hip-hop ‘shot callers’ have teamed up with the most hardcore “no joke” professional wrestling thugs to ensure that top notch talent will hash out their feuds, leaving the toughest, most legit, ‘fam’ to walk away with full UWF domination.

By tapping the newest and freshest top wrestling talent, the UWF is set to debut a level of extreme in-ring warfare that guarantees over the top insanity and a never-before-seen experience. Seasoned wrestling veterans including HOMICIDE, RICKY ORTIZ, SCORPIO SKY, and RICKY REYES will join a team of high-flying newcomers, who will deliver ground-breaking wrestling and hood-crazy stunts, changing the game, and setting trends for new world entertainment.

‘First Blood’ will go down at the famed NYC Hammerstein Ballroom at 311 West 34th Street in Manhattan. In addition to exploding in front of a packed crowd of thousands, ‘First Blood’ will be filmed for a dynamic national pay-per-view special, which will first air on Sunday, June 26th at 8:00pm edt (5:00pm pdt) with an encore presentation at 11:00pm edt (8pm pdt). Additional airings will occur on national cable and satellite networks including iN DEMAND, DIRECTV, TVN Ent, etc. New episodes of Urban Wrestling Federation will air on Pay Per View in September and November. Tickets for the live event are now available at and at the Hammerstein Box Office.
