DAVID ARQUETTE RETURNING TO THE RING: 18 years ago actor David Arquette (@DavidArquette) turned the pro wrestling world upside down when he became the now defunct World Championship Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion.

One of his biggest critics is R.J. City (@RJCity1) of Toronto, Canada. The two men have been at each other’s throats on Twitter for the better part of 6 months and earlier this Summer Arquette had enough and challenged City to a match this Sunday July 15th at the Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, CA. The match will be hosted and shot for television by Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. The matches begin at 3PM and admission is free.
