– Tommy Dreamer! The Innovator Of Violence and ECW Original is seen

beloved/feared men in wrestling for a reason. Loved by fans, hated by
his opponents, Tommy Dreamer is Pro Wrestling.
-The Hurricane Shane Helms! Stand Back! Because the former WWE and WCW
Cruiserweight champion and wrestling renaissance man is coming
through! in addition to appearing at this year’s Royal Rumble, Shane
defeated The Rock, and blazed trails for cruiserweight and masked
wrestlers, invented more moves than most wrestlers know how to do, and
is still making moves in Ring Of Honor and all over the wrestling

and around the world. It didn’t matter if he was facing John Cena, or
being a part of the new ECW, on the mic or in the ring, Matt gives his
all to everything he does. His passion and intellect delights your
ears and enlightens your mind on Lucha Underground, and when we set
sail for greatness on August 18th, you can bet “Your Teacher” will be

“After years of bringing Pro Wrestling such as Dragon’s Gate, Evolve
and Chikara to iconic NYC venues such as BB King’s and the Highline
Ballroom, it’s been dream of mine to host wrestling on a boat. So
stoked that along with the OG Kevin Gill, Rocks Off is finally able to
present a set of mat classics on the high seas!” – Jake Szufnarowski,
“I’ve had the pleasure of producing wrestling events at venues as
diverse as The Red Rocks Amphitheater, and The Gathering Of The
Juggalos! As a Queens, NY native, I’ve experienced the greatest fans
in the world, at all the legendary wrestling venues NYC has to offer
from the Mad House Of The Extreme to The Manhattan Center/Hammerstein
Ballroom, to the One and only Madison Square Garden…now I’m honored
to combine all of these experiences into the christening of a new
experience with The Rocks Off Wrestling Boat!” – Kevin Gill, Podcaster
