**FCW WRESTLING BRINGS ITS SUMMER SLAMARAMA TOUR TO PALM BAY with WWE SUPERSTARS WADE BARRET and HEATH SLATER**
Port Charlotte, Fl – June 6, 2011
Florida Championship Wrestling continues its Summer Slamarama Tour Wednesday June 15th in Palm Bay. Along with all the exciting in-ring action that fans love, this show will also feature a meet-and-greet autograph session with Smackdown Superstars Wade Barrett and Heath Slater, a Superstar Karaoke Idol competition, and much more. If that wasn’t enough, each fan will also receive a complimentary pack of FCW Superstar trading cards.
Eight huge matches are scheduled for the event. Stars from WWE’s NXT will be featured, as well as the current crop of FCW superstars. For almost fifty years, FCW has been the gold standard in professional wrestling in the state of Florida. FCW is the official developmental territory for worldwide sports entertainment entity WWE, meaning that countless FCW Superstars and Divas can be seen performing weekly on Monday Night Raw, Friday Night Smackdown and NXT. Fan favorites such as Ted DiBiase, Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McEntyre, Evan Bourne, Kofi Kingston, Jack Swagger, The Bella Twins, Natalya and many, many more– all got their start at FCW.
“When I came over from England and I was just starting out, it was here at FCW that I planted my roots,” Wade Barret says, in his thick English dialect. “It will be a tremendous delight for me to return to Palm Bay. I sincerely cannot wait.” Chuckling to himself and smirking coyly, he adds, “I wonder if they’ll remember me.” Fellow Smackdown star Heath Slater looks back on the matches he’s had in Palm Bay: “There was definitely a lot of booing. Some of them Palm Bay fans weren’t so high on Heath Slater. But I can let it slide– love me or hate me, I’m here to entertain y’all.”
When asked about performing in Palm Bay, newly-crowned FCW Heavyweight Champion Bo Rotundo says he’s prepared for anything. “I’m ready to defend my title, I’m ready to sing in Superstar Karaoke Idol—heck. Whatever happens, the young superstar assures us that you will NOT want to miss this event.
