Rob Black To make His First Wrestling Appearance In Eight Years!
Fight Night On The Strip at the world famous Key Club on the legendary
Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, this Tuesday!

Promotion and hype has been active and prevalent in the Los Angeles area for
The Pit’s Hollywood invasion as they present an alternative pro wrestling
variety show this Tuesday, August 23rd on the Sunset Strip.

With just days until the big event, video has been released of Rob Black
saying that he is going to “get the band back together” this Tuesday.
For those that do not know, Black was the creator of XPW, the largest
independent wrestling company in the country from 200-2003. After a run in
with the Feds over charges against Black’s parent adult production company,
XPW went out of business, and Black served time in a Federal penitentiary.

Fight Night On The Strip is the brainchild of former XPW employee/worker GQ
Money, as he intends to offer entertainment of all kinds in order to draw an
audience to what he considers a freshly presented approach to wrestling.
Having been involved in WSX on MTV as well, GQ is no stranger to trying
alternative forms of wrestling entertainment.

“Anyone can put matches on paper, put a ring in a cheap venue, and call
themselves a promoter of a wrestling show. I want to do something different.
I want glitz, I want glamour and I want a wrestling product that matches
where I’m based out of… Hollywood!”

When asked about the Rob black video, GQ had this to say, “I don’t know what
Rob has in mind, and we have discussed XPW in the past. Unfortunately, it’s
not his company anymore, so I’m not really sure what he’s talking about. If
he wants to put the band back together, there will be a nice spot on the
guest list entitled, XPW +4. I’ll even give him a mic.”

(To here what GQ Money has to say about Fight Night On The Strip:
