On March 29, 2019, PCW ULTRA will be hosting Wrestle Summit at the ILWU Memorial Hall in Wilmington, CA. Wrestle Summit is scheduled to feature twenty-five wrestlers representing six different wrestling promotions and will include several championship defenses.
Along with PCW ULTRA, wrestlers will be representing Seattle’s Defy, Australia’s Melbourne City Wrestling, the Midwest’s Wrestling Revolver, Impact Wrestling, and AEW. Additionally, there will be several wrestlers competing as independents or freelance.
When asked what separates Wrestle Summit from a normal PCW ULTRA event, PCW ULTRA co-owner Joseph Cabibbo stated ” Wrestle Summit is not solely a PCW ULTRA event but instead a collective of companies working together on a true mash-up show. Fans of professional wrestling will witness champions from different companies defending their championships in inter-promotional dream matches, on one incredibly fun night in Wilmington, California, under the Wrestle Summit banner.”
Champions from five of the promotions will be represented at Wrestle Summit. For PCW ULTRA they will be represented by Ultra Champion Shane Strickland, Ultralight Champion Jake Atlas, Women’s Champion Tessa Blanchard, and Tag Team Champions Warbeast. Impact World Champion John Hennigan and Impact World Women’s Champion Taya Valkyrie, Defy’s 8xGP Champion Artemis Spencer and Tag Team Champions The One Percent, Wrestling Revolver’s Scramble Champion Caleb Konley and Tag Team Champions The Rascalz (who are competing representing Impact), and one half of the MCW Tag Team Champions in Adam Brooks will be appearing.

When asked about the future of Wrestle Summit beyond 2019, and if it may become an annual event, Cabibbo replied “The response for Wrestle Summit has been very positive thus far and the level of wrestling companies and vendors involved is much higher than we initially anticipated and we now see this possibly becoming an annual event. It could be hosted by a different company every year in a different city or perhaps it remains in the strong Los Angeles market. We are taking things one step at a time. Step one is March 29th…and one thing is certain, Wrestle Summit will be a can’t miss event.”
