Rescue Mania 2: BIG BLUE RESCUE


After a SOLD OUT RESCUE MANIA 1 Event in March which drew over 1,000 fans to Felician University, RESCUE MANIA will Return to Rutherford NJ’s FELICIAN UNIVERSITY JOE JOB GYMNASIUM, Located at 1 Felician Way on Sunday Afternoon September 23rd.

The Event has a bell time of 2:00 p.m. and there will also be a pre-show in the cafeteria under the gymnasium starting at 12:30 p.m where fans will be able to meet the wrestlers, get autographs and purchase hot food.

Felician University is easily accessible and located close to both bus and train drop offs.

Check out the Facebook Page: RESCUE MANIA WRESTLING for updates and ticket information.


If you are looking for hard hitting, no nonsense, strong style professional wrestling or hardcore bloodbaths

– then this IS NOT the event for you!

Like the previous sold out event, RESCUE MANIA 2 will be an event reminiscent of the early Monday Nitro Episodes and will be written by Christopher Ford (Crowbar) and professional wrestling creative genius Kevin Sullivan.

RESCUE MANIA 2 will bring fans back to a time when there was a unique blending of great in ring wrestling from cruiserweights and luchadores, larger than life characters, colorful and unique costumes that stood out – some characters that were so bad you couldn’t help but watch and laugh. There will be Ringside Managers in crazy get-ups, serious characters and everything in between – the good, the bad, the ugly, the silly and the outright outlandish! – All presented at a great wrestling venue with great care given to production and professionalism. – this is not your everyday “indy show”

If you have children in your family – this is the show to take them to!

Allow the roster and crew of RESCUE MANIA to “Brings you Back” and allow you to remember what it was like laugh, cheer, boo, chant “USA!” and scream at a referee for not seeing the foreign object that the heel is hiding in his trunks!

But have no fear, the event will also feature cruiserweight / lucha action, some “serious storylines” style matches and even a match that will spill to the floor and get a little “extreme”.

Great action, great fun and content appropriate for all ages!

RESCUE MANIA 2 will Feature:

WWE Hall of Famer JAKE “The Snake” Roberts

Rutherford’s former WCW Star- a performer known for never phoning in a performance the “TIMELESS” CROWBAR takes on one of the most agile “big men” on the indies “BIG DEAL” Craig Steele in a match that promises to provide everything from wrestling, to brawling, to high flying athletics…and you may even see a chair get broken!

One of the east coast’s best kept Cruiserweight secrets, a guy who combines both athleticism and character

“THE LIT SUPERSTAR” SEBASTIAN CAGE will take on the Masked Luchadore AZRIEL

Former NXT STAR BULL JAMES will be teaming w/ East Coast independent Stand out – Pat Buck against the very odd and unlikely duo of MR. Darrius Carter and “The Cult Classic” Prince Akkanatan

Get ready to Chant “USA” as former WWE STAR THE PATRIOT teams with recent WWE PC try out recipient and the “Worlds largest Veteran”, US Army Veteran the 345 LB ADAM PAYNE to take on THE HEAVENLY BODIES

Experience Rutherford Native “Gunner Trash” – A rough and tumble brawler and hero for the common man!

You’ve probably never head of him, but to experience the connection between this wrestler and the local crowd is amazing!

This guy IS the real-life Dusty Rhodes. Working for the Rutherford DPW by day and Delivering Pizza’s at night – everyone knows and loves this guy! This guy is truly CONNECTED to this home town audience in a way most wrestlers can only dream of being connected to their fans.

Gunner will be taking on one of the best talkers and annoying heels out there, another corner stone of RESCUE MANIA’s roster – “Bright Lights” Jarrett Foster

Rescue Mania 2 will benefit the Rutherford Fire Department, Rutherford Junior Football and Bergan County Tracers, and organization benefitting homeless veterans!

Come out, enjoy yourself and support some great causes!
