Burbank, CA – May 7th, 2024 – The full lineup for Epic Pro Wrestling and Jamie Iovine’s Ante Up 2 on June 2nd, 2024 at Don Quixote in Los Angeles has been announced, with a match between Jordan Cruz and “Filthy” Tom Lawlor set to headline the event. Cruz is coming off a huge main event victory over Kevin Blackwood at Epic Pro Wrestling’s previous event in February and looks to continue his momentum against his toughest opponent yet, NJPW and MLW star and former UFC fighter Tom Lawlor!

Other headline matches slated for Epic Pro Wrestling and Jamie Iovine’s Ante Up 2 include Adrian Quest going one-on-one against Lucha Libre and AEW star The Beast Mortos (formerly known as Black Taurus), Kevin Blackwood vs. Ray RosasRey Horus vs. Royce Isaacs, and Richard Holliday vs. Shane Haste of TMDK.

Ante Up 2 is also slated to feature a match featuring the event’s co-promoter, Jamie Iovine, who will be going up against West Coast wrestling powerhouse Vinnie Massaro. While he is best known for his work in business and entertainment, Iovine has spent the past few years training under Royce Isaacs and has competed in matches at the Chatsworth-based promotion Millennium Pro Wrestling. However, will that be enough to overcome the 25 years of experience possessed by Vinnie Massaro?

Ante Up 2 will also see matches featuring Zyra vs. Zara Zakher in Zakher’s Epic Pro Wrestling debut, as well as an All-Star Trios match featuring Chris Nasty and the Unguided(Matt Vandagriff & Damian Drake) facing DoomFly (Delilah Doom & Eli Everfly) and the debuting Brandon Gatson.
