Memphis Entertainment Group is proud to announce the return of the Intercontinental Wrestling Federation also known as IWF Wrestling.
IWF Wrestling burst on the independent wrestling scene in 1997 in Tupelo, Mississippi. Within one year of its formation IWF Wrestling debuted its weekly wrestling television program named IWF Slam. The show featured local independent wrestling stars and also legends of professional wrestling.
After much success with the program on a locally televised basis IWF Slam moved to a primetime spot on a regional ABC affiliate. The weekly show garnered high ratings on a regular basis and quickly established a loyal following. With the success that came with the ABC regional affiliate IWF Slam was then picked up by a regional Fox affiliate in the Memphis Tennessee market. Once again ratings for the show were impressive and consistent.
After years of success the overall dynamic of Professional Wrestling was beginning to change. The so called “Monday Night Wars” and the “NWO era” of wrestling had passed. The business as a whole found itself in a stagnant state of affairs. At that time the powers that be at IWF Wrestling made the decision to move away from the world of professional wrestling and pursue other ventures in the entertainment industry until the time was correct for a return.
After 12 years of success in the music segment of the entertainment industry and with the “big two” companies in wrestling offering a less than entertaining  product IWF Wrestling feels that the time is now for the Mid-South public to have a third choice.
With great pride we are happy to announce the return of The Intercontinental Wrestling Federation. The premier event will take place on Saturday Night November 1st 2014. The event will take place at the Vardaman School in Vardaman Mississippi. The bell time is 7:00 P.M.  This will be a fundraising event for the Vardaman Mississippi School with a portion of the proceeds going to the school.
IWF Wrestling is also happy to announce that this event will also be filmed for a Pilot episode for the all new IWF Slam television program.
Please come support the school with this fundraiser and witness the return of the most hard hitting and exciting wrestling action as IWF Wrestling returns!!!
