Jersey All Pro Wrestling would like to thank all the fans that came out on Saturday night to witness the 19th Anniversary Show in Rahway, NJ.

The last time fans saw Matt Hardy in JAPW was on May 21, 2005 in Braintree, MA and June 4, 2005 in Rahway, NJ. However, due a contract obligation he was unable to wrestle and only able to sign autographs to fans in attendance.
On November 14th, Matt Hardy will finally wrestle inside a JAPW ring, more than 10 years after his last appearance.
Matt Hardy will be taking on a person who has had similar situations he faced throughout his wrestling career, both seen their tag partners have more popularity among fans, and even move on to new ventures.
When Matt Hardy was announced for signing autographs on November 14th, a certain wrestler contacted JAPW management demanding to wrestle Matt Hardy who was already booked in a match. This wrestler was also wanted to remove himself from the match, so he could wrestle Matt Hardy.
The same wrestler was also on the same shows as Matt Hardy back in 2005, and was even considered by JAPW Management at the time to wrestle Matt Hardy if Hardy’s contract allowed it.
Jersey All Pro Wrestling would like to announce that after 10 years since Matt Hardy’s last appearance, Azrieal will be facing off 1 on 1 against Matt Hardy on November 14th.
Azrieals replacement in the Best of the Light Heavyweights will be revealed within the next 24 hours, and this person has wrestled for JAPW in the past.
