Pro Wrestling returns to Heard County in a big way this Friday, January 18th with Classic Pro Wrestling’s debut event, “Winter Warfare”, at the Heard County High School gymnasium.
The big event features some of the best professional wrestlers from around the state of Georgia as well as former WWE, TNA, and ECW superstar Johnny Swinger who will battle Rob Adonis in the main event of the evening.
While the first show will take place at the high school, all subsequent shows will be at the Heard County Middle School beginning on February 1, 2013. A portion of the proceeds from each event will benefit the middle school athletic programs.
“We are excited to be able to bring CPW to Heard County. We encourage everyone to please come out and enjoy a very entertaining show while helping us to raise funds for much needed athletic equipment and supplies,” stated HCMS athletic director Allen Sikes.
CPW is planning to hold regular events at HCMS on the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month. According to CPW promoter Mark Grason, the school administration has been very supportive of the events.
“Classic Pro Wrestling is working hard to brand itself as Heard County’s professional sports franchise. Each show will be filmed for potential TV broadcast and eventual DVD compilations,” stated Grason. “CPW will provide a kid friendly show that will give everyone in the family something to talk about in anticipation of the next show.”
CPW has already confirmed Robert Gibson, one half of the eight time NWA World Tag Team Champions The Rock and Roll Express, for the Feb 1st event which is being dubbed “Snow Fury.”
Other featured wrestlers on the January 18 card include Josh Storm, Kyle Matthews, The Hot Commodities, Fred Yehi, Brian Alexander, Chip Day, Jimmy the Kid, and the Mysterious Doctor Bahmbay.
Tickets for the show are on sale now and are $10 ringside, $7 floor, and $6 general admission. Advance bleacher tickets are available at both Heard High School and HCMS for only $5 each and $2 from each of these advance tickets is donated directly to the schools.
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and bell time for the first match is 7:30 p.m.
