The newly-formed Urban Wrestling Federation has announced that it will be holding its First Blood wrestling event in New York City on Friday (June 3). The spectacle will feature some of the “toughest thugs in the hip-hop community,” including Bad Boy-signee Red Cafe, Uncle Murda, former Terror Squad member Cuban Link and rap legend-turned-body builder Melle Mel.

Featuring wrestling vets Homicide, Ricky Ortiz, Scorpio Sky and Ricky Reyes, First Blood pits rappers and professional wrestlers against one another in the ring, combining “take-no-prisoners’ urban music artists…with extreme style professional wrestlers in order to fight their battles and determine who really are the ‘shot-callers.”

Fellow MCs Gun Play, Brisco and Gorilla Zoe will join the set of rappers entering the ring.

“By combining urban music and professional wrestling, we’ve created the ideal opportunity for dynamic and exciting entertainment while opening an avenue that guarantees higher attendance with new marketing and sponsorship opportunities,” First Blood developer Steve “The Hustler” Karel, of ECW fame, said in a press release.

First Blood takes place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on June 3, and will air on Pay-Per-View on June 26, at 8PM EST, with an encore presentation at 11PM EST.

Tickets are available here.
