XWF releases roster

By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling

The Xtreme Wrestling Federation has released their updated roster and the list is reading like a who's who of stars from the past, present and future.

"We believe that by presenting the public with a cast of world-renowned wrestlers and personalities, while simultaneously signing and developing new talent that rivals the old heroes in skill, size and ability, we will provide pro wrestling fans with a new league of their very own," said XWF President John Flood in a press release.

The list of talent includes several former World Championship Wrestling personalities who were not picked up by the World Wrestling Federation following their acquisition of the company in March, including Roddy Piper, the Road Warriors, Konnan, The Demon, Curt Hennig, Juventud Guererra, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, Tony Schiavone and David Penzer.

Former WCW wrestler Vampiro is the lone Canadian named to the roster thus far.

Also slated to appear at the tapings are former WWF employees Jerry "The King" Lawler and Rena Mero (Sable). Hulk Hogan, according to the release, will make a "special appearance" at the tapings.

Other wrestlers named on the roster include Buff Bagwell, The Nasty Boys, Psychosis, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine, Hail, "The British Storm" Ian Harrison, European Giant Drezden, Ray Gonzales, The Shane Twins, Kid Krash, and Christopher Daniels.

Former WCW booker Kevin Sullivan will also be part of the XWF in a management role, while Jimmy Hart will be working in both an on and off-screen capacity.

XWF tapings take place Tuesday, November 13, and Wednesday, November 14 at Universal Studios Florida. Admission is free.

Calls to the XWF offices confirmed that the tapings will be occurring this week.
Details of air dates for XWF television are unavailable at this time.
