Fightful reports that current Impact Wrestling tag team champions FinJuice (Juice Robinson and David Finlay) will face MLW’s Violence Is Forever (Kevin Ku and Dominic Garrini) at the upcoming at the Have Fun Be Sad event. The match and event will take place during WrestleMania Weekend.

ACTION Wrestling is promoting the event alongside Southern Underground Pro. ACTION Wrestling booker Matt Griffin said the following to Fightful on the upcoming inter-promotional matchup:

“When creating the concept of the show, the most obvious hook was Violence is Forever. Dominic Garrini & Kevin Ku are the two time IWTV tag team of the year and wrestle extensively in both ACTION and SUP (they hold the SUP tag team titles). Dom and Ku both made it clear to me that they wanted to test themselves against the best teams in the world,” said ACTION CEO Matt Griffin. “That was literally the only request from them, find a match we can only make this weekend. A lot of feelers were put out and i squared in on David Finlay and Juice Robinson. They were interested immediately, one of the top international teams in the world against the top independent team in the world. There is history here as well. In Juice Robinson’s AIW debut, he fought Garrini, who would for him to tap him out with an armbar” Griffin told us. “ACTION Wrestling and Southern Underground Pro are the promotions in the Southeast known for in-ring wrestling above anything else. We wanted to bring a show to IWTV that could be called the best wrestling show of the weekend and capture both of our styles well. FinJuice, in an extremely rare appearance in the US, vs Violence is Forever, the top indie team going, fits the bill very well. ACTION and SUP are both well known for making unique and interesting matches, and we think this fits the bill”

The event will take place on April 9 in Tampa, Florida at the 81Bay Brewing Group. Here’s the updated lineup for Have Fun Be Sad:

* FinJuice vs. Violence Is Forever
