On the heels of the recent Ronda Rousey/WWE buzz, Jessica Eye, a UFC fighter from Cleveland, mixed it up in the pro wrestling ring with 400-pound wrestler Kongo Kong last Friday night in Parma, Ohio.
Eye accompanied J-Rocc to the ring as he defended his Cleveland Knights Championship Wrestling title against the undefeated Kong, a nationally contracted talent with the IMPACT WRESTLING promotion.
The event was called “New World Rising” and aired around the world as an Internet pay-per-view on Fite TV.
Eye battled Kong and caused a distraction that led to J-Rocc’s victory. At the end of the clip, Eric Bischoff comes through the curtain.
Bischoff masterminded World Championship Wrestling’s rise to prominence in the late ‘90s, and he was the special guest general manager for CKCW at New World Rising.
