“A professional wrestling card will be coming to the venerable ballpark on Wahconah Street. Northeast Wrestling and the Pittsfield Suns will team up to present “Wrestling Under the Stars” tour. The local stop will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 26, long after the Suns have thrown their final pitch…
According to the release, WWE Hall of Fame wrestlers Mick Foley and Jerry “The King” Lawler will be in attendance, along with Matt and Jeff Hardy.
There are seven matches scheduled for the event. Prior to the event, there will be a special meet and greet session with the wrestlers, which will start at 4:30 p.m.”
Now we are talking! Jerry “The King” Lawler… this will bring out the best in our community…families looking to have a little fun in the sun on a late August evening… break some tables, break some folding chairs and raise the hopes of all of our yoots that they one day can rise up from there slums and ensure justice is served in the square circle!
I really am pumped for this event. Something about it being outside adds a Wrestlemania or Summer Slam quality that the Boys Club Gym is lacking…glad to see people are trying to bring interesting things to the Berkshires…they can count on my support
