Wrestling fans won’t have to wait long to see the return of Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling, as the relaunched promotion’s next event is mere weeks away. 

On Twitter, the promotion’s tour dates were announced and revealed that the first event will take place at the Jefferson AG Center in Jefferson, Georgia on June 1. Over the next five months, TCW will host ten events in the Georgia area.

Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling’s return was announced in January of this year. The promotion was first launched by Dusty Rhodes in 1999. The following year, WCW’s Glacier won a tournament at the first TCW event to become the first TCW World Heavyweight Champion. 

While Dusty is no longer with us, TCW remains integral to the Rhodes family. In late 2023, Cody Rhodes filed a trademark for Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling alongside longtime ally QT Marshall, Teil Rhodes, the sister of the Undisputed WWE Champion also has a management role with Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling.

The original TCW saw several notable names compete, including Scott Hall, ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan, New Jack, Leilani Kai, Daffney, and Steve Corino. Years before he’d make it big as part of TNA Wrestling, James Storm would compete during the latter stages of the company.

The relaunch of Turnbuckle Championship Wrestling is good news for wrestlers based in Georgia. The promotion clearly has resources behind it and will provide more opportunities for talent in the area. The Rhodes name being attached could also mean that WWE has got an eye on TCW which would certainly bode well for those on the TCW roster hoping to one day make it big in the world of pro wrestling.
