The United Wrestling Coalition returns to Kelly's Banquet 
Hall in Wrightstown, New Jersey on March 17—Celebrate St. 
Patrick's Day and the UWC's 22nd Anniversary Event featuring 
the 2018 UWC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony! Fans of all 
ages are encouraged to wear green for a chance to win 
prizes, and the bar will be open for those age 21 and over! 
Doors open at 6:30 with a 7:00 p.m. Bell time, and admission 
is $10. 

Last year, Referee George Pinaha, The Orphan, Billy 
Lassiter, and The Ripper were the first four inductees into 
the UWC Hall of Fame. On March 17, they will be joined by 
three more inductees. Who will be in the UWC Hall of Fame 
Class of 2018? 

Trained by the late “Iron” Mike Sharpe, the first inductee 
into the UWC Hall of Fame Class of 2018 is none other than 
Mark “The Cannon” Melaccio! Following numerous WWF 
television appearances in the mid-90s, Cannon made his way 
to the United Wrestling Coalition. On December 5, 1998, he 
won a battle royal to win the vacant UWC Heavyweight 
Championship and enjoyed a 161-day title reign. Melaccio 
eventually transitioned to a behind-the-scenes position as 
Production Manager, a role he held from 1999-2001 when he 
left the company. Mark Melaccio has made several return 
appearances over the years, including a Legends Match in 
2016, and most recently, a bout with Textbook Philly Madison 
last March. 

The second inductee into the UWC Hall of Fame Class of 2018 
is the one and only Joe Rules! A fixture on the indy 
wrestling scene for over a quarter of a century, this former 
ECW ring crew member trained by JT Smith has won 
championships in the JWA, PCW, ECPW, and JAPW, among others. 
Joe Rules was rated #500 in the 1997 PWI 500, earning 
himself the name "Mr. 500." He was even a guest on the Jerry 
Springer Show! But Joe Rules found his greatest success in 
the United Wrestling Coalition, where he was often 
accompanied by Luxurious Lynne, Patricia M. Steinman, or Liz 
Savage. Not only is Joe Rules a former UWC Heavyweight 
Champion, he's also held the North American Title and the 
United States Title. In addition, Joe Rules has been a 
manager, commentator, and commissioner. Having retired from 
the ring in 2013, Joe Rules currently serves as the 
honorable UWC President. 

The third and final inductee into this year's UWC Hall of 
Fame Class is Silly Billy! Known for his entrance music, 
various hats, and childlike wonder, Silly Billy is arguably 
the most popular wrestler in UWC history. This colorful 
character is one of only five men to have held every title 
the United Wrestling Coalition currently offers, including 
two reigns as Heavyweight Champion. He also won The Browns 
Mills Rumble in 2014. Due to health issues, Silly Billy hung 
up the tights in 2016, defeating “The One” Geoffrey Bravo 
for the United States Championship in his final bout. Now, 
as “Serious William,” he is the voice of the UWC, serving as 
ring announcer at our events and continuing to entertain the 

Please join us March 17 at Kelly's Banquet Hall in 
Wrightstown, New Jersey as we welcome Mark “The Cannon” 
Melaccio, “Mr. 500” Joe Rules, and Silly Billy to the United 
Wrestling Coalition Hall of Fame Class of 2018! 

The UWC Heavyweight Title will be on the line at our 22nd 
Anniversary Event as T.G.I. Fredo Majors, accompanied by his 
Fraternity brother “Brilliant” Bobby Banks, defends his 
championship against one half of the Tag Team Champions, The 
“Lost Boy” Jay Kirby! Kirby's best friend “American Muscle” 
Nate Mustang is currently in exile in Iceland after losing a 
Loser Leaves Town Match to Fredo Majors in December, and Jay 
Kirby plans to take the belt and extract a measure of 
revenge on behalf of Mustang! This is one match you DO NOT 
want to miss! 

Tag Team Champion Spectrum, originally scheduled to face Ace 
Matthews of The Fraternity, will instead take on The 
“Assassin” Ace Marxman on March 17 in Wrightstown! “I don't 
care if it's Ace Matthews, Ace Marxman, Ace Darling, or Ace 
Cowboy Bob Orton,” said a fired-up Spectrum. “When do I get 
a Heavyweight Title shot?” Spectrum had best not 
underestimate Ace Marxman, however, or he may find himself 
going home with the loser's share of the purse. 

Definitely Donnie, who has reigned as champion since 
defeating Jimmy Pipes in September in the UWC's 1000th 
match, will defend the United States Title against his 
toughest challenger to date: “The One” Geoffrey Bravo! Bravo 
has held every championship belt that UWC has to offer, and 
on St. Patrick's Day at Kelly's, he will attempt to become a 
three-time US titleholder! 

On March 17, Kentucky Bluegrass—Lance Scaper & Kleetus will 
collide with the new combination of Joe Wolf & Charlie 
Bonifer in a battle between two teams jockeying for position 
in the tag team rankings! Who will emerge victorious in 
Kelly's Banquet Hall? 

Other UWC favorites scheduled to appear March 17 at our 22nd 
Anniversary Event include Mr. Black, JJ Cruz with Craig Z- 
List, Delmonico The Destroyer, Jay “The Key” Evans, Textbook 
Philly Madison, Bobby Piper, The “Lucky One” Dave Reed, The 
Short Bus Express—The Great Cerenzio & The “Jersey Shore Mad 
Man” Slayer with Donnie Victory, The “Hair Tie Hero” Tony 
Vee, Warhead, and more! You never know just who will show up 
at a special event like this!
