Pro Wrestling Guerrilla presents Kurt Russellmania at Wrestlereunion 4 on January 30, 2010!
By Silverback, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Staff Writer
December 8, 2009 – On January 30, 2010, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, in association with Highspots, will pay tribute to one of the greatest actors of all time with Kurt Russellmania! Kurt Russellmania will of course honor Kurt Russell, who has been continually redefining the craft of acting for over forty years. And what better way to venerate the legendary screen idol than with Pro Wrestling Guerrilla’s biggest event ever!As you may already know, Kurt Russellmania will feature some very special guest stars visiting Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, including “The Whole F’N Show” Rob Van Dam, The Great Muta, Jushin Thunder Liger, and Super Crazy! While those four names should be enough to make you shove your grandmother out of the way in order to buy tickets, if you haven’t already got yours then you will positively trample Meemaw after you find out what else is happening at Kurt Russellmania!
The latest match to be announced will feature “The Whole F’N Show” Rob Van Dam, former Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Champion Chris Hero, and 2009 Battle of Los Angeles Finalist Roderick Strong facing off in a Three Way Match honoring Kurt Russell’s tour de force performance in Sky High! Plus, already announced for Kurt Russellmania is a dream singles encounter between a living legend of professional wrestling and future hall of famer, as Jushin Thunder Liger takes on El Generico!
While it was widely believed that Chris Hero would challenge the newly crowned Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Champion Kenny Omega at Kurt Russellmania, Omega will be representing Pro Wrestling Guerrilla in Japan this winter, and unfortunately will not be a part of our event at Wrestlereunion 4. Instead, he will make his first World Championship Title defense at our February 2010 event. As a former Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Champion, Chris Hero is entitled to a rematch with the current champion, but due to his valiant effort at the 2009 Battle of Los Angeles, Roderick Strong is also in line for a title shot. A victory for either man in their Sky High Three-Way Match with Rob Van Dam at Kurt Russellmania would give either man a gigantic boost heading into a World Championship title match with Kenny Omega in 2010.
