While a previous promotion is taking a hiatus, another independent wrestling promotion is bringing a show to Rockford next Saturday, with a few familiar faces and other wrestlers who will be new to Rockford.

New South Wrestling will make its Rockford debut on July 29 for a night of Action Clash tapings. The promotion has held wrestling events across the state with locations including Huntsville, Florence, Scottsboro, Heflin, Decatur, Hartselle, Gadsden, Birmingham, and more.

Now the promotion is bringing its “Best in the South” wrestling to Coosa County with men’s and women’s wrestling for fans to enjoy. While the card is subject to change, New South has nine big matches lined up for Rockford.

The Action Clash card will see “EZ Money” Stephan Dunn return to Rockford in a match against NWA star Miami Ice Rolando Perez. Additionally, wrestling legend and Alabama icon Action Mike Jackson will return for a match against Donnie Primetime.

Other matches lined up for the night include Brennan Cole vs. Cabana Man Dan, The Helm vs. Bang Brothers, Alice Crowley vs. NWA star Kylie Alexxa, Unkillable Brayden Toon vs. NWA superstar Kenzie Page, match six of the “best of seven” with Locksmith Brandon Williams vs. “All Business” Tyler Franks, and in the Freelance Championship match Storm Grayson will defend his title against the 2023 HOSS winner Hunter Drake.

The night’s show will also feature a scramble match with Koda Hernandez, “Cat Daddy” Rodney Rockchild, Positive Lee, Big Dave, “The Investment” Marcus Dylan, and “Trash Panda” Rita Raccoon.

The event will be held Saturday, July 29, at the Rockford Event Center, located at 333 School Street in Rockford. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and bell time is at 7:30.

A limited number of front row tickets are available for $20 each, and general admission tickets are $15 each. Tickets for children 12 and under are $10 each.

This is a family-friendly show for all ages to enjoy, and New South Wrestling invites everyone to come out and enjoy a night with the “Best in the South.” For more information or to purchase tickets in advance, contact New South on social media at
