About The Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup
Sixteen top cruiserweight professional wrestlers will compete in a tournament that, for the seventh straight year, will honor the memory of one of their fallen comrades. The Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup will be at stake when four of the country’s leading independent wrestling entities each send four wrestlers into a tournament that is now in its seventh year. The tournament honors former independent wrestler Peterson, who passed away in 2002 from cancer. Starting in May 2003 and continuing every year since, a tournament has been held in Peterson’s name, with proceeds going to charity. This year’s recipient will be All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL.
The 2009 version of the Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup will take place on Friday, November 20 and Saturday, November 21 at the National Guard Armories in Brooksville, FL and Crystal River, FL, respectively. The four independent companies sending wrestlers to the tourney include Florida’s Full Impact Pro Wrestling; Philadelphia’s Combat Zone Wrestling; Chicago’s AAW; and Ohio’s Hybrid Pro Wrestling. Plus in action will be Legendary Pro Wrestler “Outlaw” Ron Bass in a Bullrope match against “Superstar” Sean Davis.
Previous winners of the tournament include “Reckless Youth” Tom Carter; Justice; Chris Sabin; Milano Collection AT; Chris Hero; and Erick Stevens. There will also be a silent auction at the event benefiting All Children’s Hospital with items from WWE, TNA and signed items from Celebrities plus Theme Park tickets and more.
