There will be plenty of high-flying professional wrestling action on Friday, July 5, to kick off a full slate of activities in Keewatin.
Wrestling Gone Wild (WGW) will present “Chaos in Keewatin” which will be full of hard-charging, gut-wrenchng wrestling action.
The best thing about the wrestling card is that it is free to the public. Bell time is at 2 p.m. and the outdoor event will be located in downtown Keewatin.
Tom Burdick, owner of WGW and the promoter of the event, said the wrestling card will be exciting for pro wrestling fans. He added that the WGW has been providing Fourth of July holiday wrestling action in Keewatin for about 10 years.
“It is going to be a good card,” said Burdick. “The matches are going to be really good and high-flying.”
The main event for the afternoon will feature Hot Shot Danny Duggans taking on WGW champion King Leonidus which Burdick said promises to be an excellent showcase match.
Another highlight of the card is an extreme tag team match for the WGW title featuring a team comprised of Pink Nation, the Brauler, and Greg Hurtz taking on another team made up of wrestling legend and WGW Commissioner Dirty Ernie and the Mighty Norseman Tyr who is advertised as being more than seven feet tall.
One more highlight is what Burdick calls “a hard-core title match” between Leonard Literacy and Daredevil Derek Fury.
Other matches include the Rebel Robert Evans taking on Kevin Phoenix; Bulldog Sammy Savard will face Chad Mosses; and Red Lightning will take on Zakk Neo in another match.
In addition to wrestling, prizes and raffles will be conducted for children who attend. Burdick encourages youngsters to sign an anti-bullying contract – which is free of charge – that is available at the merchandise table.
“Be a buddy and not a bully for WGW,” Burdick said.
Refreshments will be available along with the merchandise table which is operated by Lynnette Nowak.
‘It is going to be great family entertainment with explosive high-flying matches,” Burdick explained. “I would like to thank the City of Keewatin and Dan Kelly for having us back these many years.”
A street dance and fireworks are slated for Keewatin following the wrestling action.
