Watch The Latest MWF TV Online & On-Demand For The Latest Action & News! SOUL SURVIVOR IX: Destined For Greatness Saturday, March 9th at Memorial Hall in Melrose, MA is shaping up to be the most exciting live event & fan reunion of 2013 as the Millennium Wrestling Federation continues it's mission to Keep The Kids Off The Streets. As we speak, our month long HOLIDAY HEADLOCKS charity drive continues with special thanks to WWE, Ron Simmons and MWF President Paul Bearer.
Even with an outstanding resume that includes three WWE IC Championship runs, holding tag team gold both in WWE & WCW, a former US Champion, enough "gold" to make him "Goldust" alone, many long time fans (and those that work behind the scenes) were shocked Dustin Rhodes would be making his return for the first time in eight years on our Thanksgiving night special.
"I hated the way things happened in 2004, I thought Goldust brought so much to the table both in and out of the ring," said MWF EVP of Wrestling Operations Dan Mirade. "Personally, from meeting him at a few WWE events and having him appear in the MWF twice, I liked him very much, a funny guy that was easy to work with that fans loved. Dustin makes no secrets about the personal war he fought inside himself to become the clean, sober human being he is today - and that's more important than professional wrestling. His autobiography "Cross Rhodes" should be in every high school around the country. I have non-wrestling friends lives fall apart battling substance abuse problems - good people that have made bad choices. Unfortunately, there was an incident at SOUL SURVIVOR II that cast a dark cloud over the entire MWF that cost us an annual opportunity to raise funds and create great nights of action packed entertainment for the kids, along with our entire roster losing work in the process.
"To some, that might be a reason to shy away from a return. However, President Bearer gave the idea of Dustin's return two thumbs up due to their personal relationship, knowing the new man he's become. The ultimate winners are the fans, as they'll be able to both meet & watch a man that helped define an era live and in person. As in any sport, there can be little snags in negotiations but in the end an agreement I never expected came to be. If the younger guys on our roster can shy away from Twitter for a little bit, there's also a tremendous wrestling mind that's been around the industry for decades that they can learn from.
"Now over eight years since we last saw him, we welcome Dustin Rhodes - Goldust - back to the Millennium Wrestling Federation family and everyone's very anxious to see how the sequel plays itself out and hoping for it to be a long-term success at this and future events. Will he be a target of JBL's Uprising or the Trifecta of Terror faction?? Hard to imagine for him not to be."
VIP Packages and tickets are on-sale now!! Both Goldust and Paul Bearer have been announced with more featured superstars to come as we get closer to March 9th. The MWF Superfans are ready, the kids from Special Olympics, Big Brothers and Make-A-Wish are pumped! If you order your VIP Package by this Tuesday, December 18th, you will receive a Christmas card personally autographed by The Boogeyman absolutely FREE as our thanks to you! Boogey continues to be a big believer in the charity work we do for the kids in the Boston area and was kind enough to do this even though he's not expected to be on the card.
