2019 Fundraiser a Success

Wrestling Recap – March Mayhem

Wrestling 2019 Recap

March Mayhem arrived at Trinity Lutheran Church on Saturday the 30th of March!  Yes, you read that right.  Professional Wrestling right here in the gymnasium!

Six spectacular matches were held and a crowd of 180+ cheered on the wrestlers.  Doors opened at 1:00 pm and matches started about 2:00 pm.  We had nearly 3 hours of action in the squared circle that was non-stop!

We began set up about 10:30 am.  Setting the ring took a lot of work and coordination.  The ring is 16-foot on a side and is constructed of very heavy steel and planking.  Imagine a large erector set!

Bring on the Fans!

Once the puzzle was complete we were ready to go!  Doors opened and we had people streaming in to watch the action.

Once we got everyone in, we started out with a quick prayer and the National Anthem.

Ready, ACTION!

Then it was time to get the action started.  Our ring announcer for the day was Paul Daley from Winona’s 101 FM radio.

Our first match was Darin Corbin against Arik Cannon.  This turned into a brawl that set up our  final match of the day.

Cuteness At Its Best

One of the greatest moments was “Downtown” Petey Brown, who is a very hyper guy on Red Bull energy drink and dances all the time, getting all the kids to follow him around the ring dancing.  It was so awesome to see.  The video is below.
