EPW / NEW WrestleSTOCK '07 was a joint showcase 2-day pay per view put on by Empire Pro Wrestling and New ERA of Wrestling on July 16 and July 17, 2007. Instead of being an event where the two promotions competed against one another, WrestleSTOCK contained matches where each promotion "showcased" their own talent to one another's fanbase. There were 17 matches on the two day event, with each day being headlined by a main event from both promotions.

Empire Pro and New ERA consider themselves sister promotions as they were opened within weeks of each other in 2004. The promotions have always had connections with one another, including sharing some of the same talent. New ERA President Marcus LaRoque and Empire Pro Owner Dan Ryan talked about holding a joint pay per view together as early as November 2006, with plans beginning to finalize over the Thanksgiving holiday.
The joint "supercard," as it was called in the beginning, was made on December 14, 2006. While the event was originally scheduled for a March 2007 date, the two promotions pushed back the deadline in lieu of a further announcement.
Set Date and Naming
"WrestleSTOCK" was chosen as the name for the event due to the fact that it would be a two day extravaganza. The name was announced on the 05.04.07 edition of New ERA RAUCOUS. Also, the date, July 16th and 17th, was chosen so that both leagues could follow the joint pay per view with each promotion's next pay per view; Russian Roulette for Empire Pro and BANNED in the US for New ERA.
