For over 25 years, professional wrestler Tommy Dreamer has pushed his body to the limit to entertain audiences worldwide. He helped change the face of wrestling as we know it during his years as the “Innovator of Violence.” Now he’s about to do it again as his promotion, House of Hardcore, airs live, exclusively on Twitch for the very first time this Saturday, November 18 at 5PM PT.
House of Hardcore was founded to be what Tommy Dreamer calls “an alternative viewing option for professional wrestling.” It’s one part legendary wrestlers, one part young stars, and a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears inside the squared circle. As Dreamer states more succinctly, House of Hardcore is “No politics. No BS. Just wrestling.”
It’s also no coincidence that the first House of Hardcore show on Twitch will emanate from The 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA. You may not be familiar with its present name, but long time wrestling fans definitely know the legend of the world’s most notorious bingo hall. “I brought my first Twitch show to the Arena purposely,” says Dreamer. “I got to witness so many wrestling moments live in ECW. Being able to now give those same type of moments to wrestling fans means everything to me. It’s been my home for a long time and will continue to be till the day I die.”
So, what’s in store for House of Hardcore’s first-ever live Twitch event? Tommy Dreamer vs. Joey Mercury in a first blood match, Nick Aldis vs. Billy Gunn, appearances by Austin Aries, MVP, Shane Douglas and much more. Watch and chat with other wrestling fans at 5 PM PT this Saturday, November 18, exclusively on Twitch.tv/HouseOfHardcore.
