Imperial Pro Wrestling is loading up the card for its next event, “This One’s For Trea”, which takes place Saturday, Feb. 19, from Tennessee Middle School in Bristol. Bell time is 7:30 p.m.
On Monday, Imperial Pro announced Tatanka, Erick Redbeard, Jimmy Hart, Jillian Hall and Glacier for this event.
All of the proceeds from this event will go to the family of Trea Leonard, an assistant coach at Tennessee High in Bristol who passed away last fall.
“The Mouth of the South”, Jimmy Hart is in the WWE Hall of Fame. After coming into wrestling in the Memphis territory, where he spent years as the nemesis of Jerry “The King” Lawler, Hart joined the WWF in 1985. The list of wrestlers he’s managed read like a who’s who of the names of the 1980s and 1990s.
Tatanka was a fixture for WWE in the first half of the 1990s, going on a lengthy undefeated run and challenging Shawn Michaels for the Intercontinental Title at WrestleMania IX. Later, Tatanka turned heel and joined the Million Dollar Corporation led by Ted DiBiase.
You might know Redbeard better as Rowan, part of the Wyatt Family in WWE and a three-time tag champion with the late Brodie Lee. He also worked with Daniel Bryan before going on a brief singles run.
Glacier was part of WCW during the Monday Night Wars era. These days he spends time taking independent bookings and helping train at the Nightmare Factory, the de facto All Elite Wrestling training facility in Georgia.
Jillian Hall spent nearly five years on the WWE roster after a stint in developmental, then located at Ohio Valley Wrestling. A former Divas Champion, Hall is now a trainer, with her pupils including Judi Hendrix, who also is booked for this event.
The full announced lineup includes the following:
Kenzie Paige Henry (C) vs. Judi Hendrix for the Imperial Pro Women’s Championship
-“The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart
-Erick Redbeard (fka Rowan)
