Earlier this week, the Urban Wrestling Federation (UWF) announced that they will debut their latest event titled “First Blood” on Friday, June 3rd at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

As part of “First Blood,” various Hip Hop acts and professional wrestlers will face off against one another inside the ring.

“By combining urban music and professional wrestling, we’ve created the ideal opportunity for dynamic and exciting entertainment while opening an avenue that guarantees higher attendance with new marketing and sponsorship opportunities,” said Steve “The Hustler” Karel, the developer of “First Blood,” in a statement.

Artists taking part in UWF’s “First Blood” include Red Café, Uncle Murda, Melle Mel, Brisco, Gorilla Zoe and more.

For fans unable to catch “First Blood” next month in New York City the event will air on Pay-Per-View on Sunday, June 26th at both 8 p.m. EST and 11 p.m. EST.
