Headlining the event, which will open their doors at 7 p.m. with the first bout set for 7:30 p.m., is former WWE Intercontinental and Tag Team champion Tito Santana squaring off with the 500-pound behemoth known as Colossus.

Santana, 62, real name Merced Solis, has been enjoying the semi-retired life with his family in Roxbury – where he’s a Spanish teacher and basketball coach.

Additionally, former ECW Heavyweight champ Shane “The Franchise” Douglas will battle Sam Shields for the ECPW Television title, while Frankie Flow defends his heavyweight gold against Pete Nixon.

In yet another championship match up, Junior Flow puts his light heavyweight crown on the line in a three-way dance against JL Chico and Timothy Plazma. The evening will also feature a 20-man battle royal.

Tickets are just $15 each and can be purchased with a nominal service fee on their Eventbrite page. Marist High School is located at 1241 John F. Kennedy Blvd. in Bayonne.
