In a recent interview with The Way Of The Blade podcast, Necro Butcher, who last wrestled for the ICW No Holds Barred promotion in January 2020 against SHLAK, revealed that he will be returning to the ring on March 5th for a benefit show for the wife of the late Jerome “New Jack” Young.

“Oh, it’s a done deal brother. It’s a done deal [that I’m returning to the ring].

Well I have been — I’d been looking — well I had gotten sick. I got diagnosed with stage three Hodgkin’s lymphoma, had all kinds of tumors. It was a big horrible mess, started getting better. It’s kind of crazy, started getting better, and I had thought about coming back on a limited schedule with a mask gimmick just to prove I could, to prove I had beaten cancer and all that. But in case you don’t know, I’m not exactly the most popular guy on Facebook or Twitter. A lot of people like to take shots at me all the time and I thought, ‘Well if I come back under a mask, is it gonna be like I’m hiding from this criticism the people have leveled at me for all this time?’

So I thought, ‘Nah, I’m just gonna go make it a full-on comeback then’ and I was looking for a good reason to do it and there’s a show March 5th in Knoxville and I guess it’s like a benefit show for New Jack’s wife and I thought, ‘Well if there ain’t a bigger reason than this, I’m not gonna find one.’ So once word got out, a lot of people talked to me to be on their shows but I’m not trying to do anything until after March 5th but there’s gonna be a lot of stuff after March 5th, trust me. But for right now, the only thing signed, sealed and delivered is March 5th in Knoxville. My opponent is about 100 pounds bigger than me and 20 years younger. But never underestimate age and treachery.”
