History was made on March 24th, 2024, at the Banning Community Center as a riotous sell-out crowd cheered the heroes and villains of the EWF [Empire Wrestling Federation]. It was a monumental night of epic action as rivalries were forged, challenges were announced, and a new world heavyweight champion was crowned.

On Sunday, April 28th, 2024, at 5pm, and again at the Banning Community Center, history will be made once more as the “Empire” returns to shake the building to its foundations.

EWF legend-in-the-making, Richie Slade will be stepping into the ring with another “So Cal” legend. His opponent is a man we covered extensively here in CV Weekly a little over a year ago. Currently, he hails as “The King” of TNA Impact Wrestling. A resident of the desert, former AEW and WWE superstar, Frankie Kazarian. It seems that Richie Slade may be attempting to adopt Frankie into his post-apocalyptic-style cult, yet, it’s highly unlikely that Frankie, a former multiple-time champion, will bow to his warped new way of thinking.


In another feud, the last time EWF rocked the Banning Community Center, Banning’s own, Trailer King, threw down the gauntlet and challenged the colossal, Black Metal. It had seemed the two would clash that night, however, Black Metal chose to make Trailer King and all the fans of the Empire wait until this April 28th.

As usual, the event will be filled with action from bell-to-bell, and there is no other wrestling promotion in Southern California that knows how to better entertain and produce quality family entertainment than the warriors of the Empire.

Tickets can be purchased ahead of the event by phone, online (see information below), or at the door. However, we suggest you punch your tickets early to make certain you have a comfortable ringside seat to indulge in all the over-the-top action! The event will also mark another opportunity for wrestling fans to purchase merchandise from the Empire, WWE, and other wrestling promotions.

If you’ve never experienced a non-WWE or non-AEW professional wrestling event we strongly suggest you be part of this epic night of action.

Doors will open at approximately 4pm where the action will rage from 5pm for three hours. Food and beverages will be available. General admission for ages 13 and up is $20, and kids under the age of 12, $10. Tickets can be purchased either at the event, by calling (909) 886-5201, or by visiting the EWF website at:

Punch your ticket for the hottest local event during the month of April. It’s a night of family fun, action, and excitement that makes history and wants you to be a part of it.
