WWE’s Matt Hardy to perform in Whitehall

T he organization that brought two former WWE wrestlers to the Whitehall Athletic Club last month have planned an even larger event to be held at the end of this month.

WWE superstar Matt Hardy will headline a World of Hurt Wrestling event at 7 p.m. on Nov. 30 at the Whitehall Athletic Club.

Hardy, who holds eight tag team championships and world-heavyweight, ECW, hardcore, European, cruiserweight and United States championships, will compete in a four-man title fight featuring three local wrestlers.

“Hardy is the biggest star we have ever had at one of our events,” said Shane Alden, head of promotions for World of Hurt Wrestling, “This is hugely exciting for our small wrestling company that we feel gives a big league product. This is a huge event for the area.”

Hardy will be available to meet and talk with fans during the event.

This is the fourth brand-name professional wrestler World of Hurt has brought to the area. In the past several months the organization has brought Hacksaw Jim Duggan to an event in Glens Falls and last month brought Raven and Brutus the Barber Beefcake to an event in Whitehall.

Beth Gugliotta, who works at the Whitehall Athletic Club, said last month’s Monster Mania event attracted more than 300 people.

“It was amazing, it was quite the draw,” she said.

Wrestling is just one of an increasing number of activities being held at the former Armory, which has been extensively renovated and transformed in an athletic center and event forum by owner Greg Gross.

The WAC, as its known, has hosted boxing matches, theater productions, concerts and is available for other special events. A benefit concert will be held at the club on Nov. 23, the Skene Manor basket party will be held there on Nov. 24, and Laura Roth will perform her Christmas show there on Dec. 5.

Tickets for the World of Hurt wrestling event cost $15 for ringside seats and $10 for general admission.
