Wrestling show serves as Komen fundraiser

Atlantic Pro Wrestling — formerly Wrestling Star Wars — will hold a professional wrestling show on Saturday at the Newbury Fire Hall, beginning at 7 p.m. The evening will serve as a fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen For the Cure, and $1 from every full-priced ticket will be donated to the foundation that raises money for breast cancer research, education and advocacy. Also, 50 percent of the proceeds from the event’s raffle will be donated as well.

The group, which has been holding shows since October 2011, is a reincarnation of the organization that hosted pro-wrestling shows on Salisbury Beach in the late 1990s. Unlike wrestlers of the past, however, Wrestling Star Wars is an athletic contest without foul language or wrestlers being hit on the head with chairs or going through tables. It is meant to be family-friendly.

Children age 12 and younger who attend dressed in their Halloween costumes can get in for a $5 fee.

The match will include heavyweight champion “The Unequaled One” Todd Sople and New England champion “Twisted Hatter” Alex Creed, among many others.

Tickets are $10 at door. Advanced tickets are $7 and available at Express Video at the Tannery Marketplace in Newburyport. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The hall is at 3 Morgan Ave. in Newbury.
