Awesome Wrestling Entertainment is back in Waynesboro, Va. with an event on Saturday, May 6 at Waynesboro High School to raise money for the UVA Children’s Hospital.
Featured include Ron Simmons, Barry Windham, Magnum TA, Hornswoggle, Kid Kash, Sonjay Dutt, Jamin Olivencia, CW Anderson, Abo Shongo and more.
The Night of the Superstars is a staple event of AWE, a Stuarts Draft-based promotion that has raised more than $70,000 for the UVA Children’s Hospital through its wrestling fundraisers.
“The biggest superstars in wrestling are converging on Waynesboro to give fans a spectacular night of entertainment and raise thousands of dollars for a great cause,” said Doug Ward, the founder of Awesome Wrestling Entertainment, which in 2011 became the only independent professional wrestling company to stage a live In Demand pay-per-view, Night of the Legends, which was broadcast from Augusta Expo in Fishersville.

Ward is busy devising the card for the May 6 fundraiser at Waynesboro High School, which has hosted Night of the Superstars events several times over the years, dating back to the first show in 2002.
Featured stars on past shows have included WWE Hall of Famers Dusty Rhodes and Jerry "The King" Lawler, and 2017 Hall of Fame inductee Ricky Morton of the Rock-n-Roll Express.
“I think fans are going to be excited about what we have in the works for May 6th,” Ward said. “Wrestling superstars from across the world have expressed an interest in being part of what we're doing, because of the cause that Night of the Superstars goes to benefit.”

The hospital-within-a-hospital at UVA Medical Center has 111 beds, a dedicated pediatric emergency department, neonatal and pediatric intensive care units and a consolidated outpatient children's care facility.
