IWF Teams with Nickelodeon TV for "The Ultimate Enemy Face-Off"
IWF Wrestlers Appear as "Danny Phantom" Ghosts September 12-16 on Nick

(West Paterson, NJ)- New Jersey's premiere sports-entertainment company, the Independent Wrestling Federation, is tag teaming with the highest rated network for kids, Nickelodeon, to present the Danny Phantom Ultimate Enemy Face-Off!

Danny Phantom, an animated series on Nickelodeon, is the story of an average kid who becomes half ghost after his parents' laboratory explodes, enabling him to use paranormal powers to fight evil ghouls and save the world.

To promote the upcoming Ultimate Enemy television movie, Nick viewers created real life ghost characters to battle it out in a series of live action face-off segments to air on Nickelodeon this Monday, September 12 through Friday, September 16 between 6 and 7 pm, and again on September 16 between 8 and 9 pm, direct from the Camp IWF Wrestling School in West Paterson, NJ.  

"I knew that Camp IWF would be the perfect setting to host the showdown," said Kev Kage, a Camp IWF graduate who works for Nickelodeon in New York City.  "Butch Hartman, creator of Danny Phantom and Fairly Odd Parents, will oversee the production to make sure the ghosts don't get out of line."

Along with Kage, IWF wrestlers Aaron Stride, Tony Torres, Shawn Donavan, BPA Barry and Justin Corino will participate in the showdown as the ghost characters.  

U-Pick Live's Garbagio and Pick Boy will provide the commentary.  For more information on the Danny Phantom Ultimate Enemy Showdown, watch Nickelodeon or visit

The main event features a Fatal-Four-Way Match for the IWF Heavyweight Title as new champion Damian Adams squares off against former four-time champion Roman, Shawn Donavan and Travis Blake.  Can Adams defy the odds and retain the gold defending against three challengers, or will Roman claim the gold for a fifth time?
