3XWrestling Set To Crown First King of Des Moines
Iowa’s Top Wrestling Company Presents One Night Tournament
DES MOINES, Iowa – Hot off the heels of its Four Year Anniversary Event – which saw a standing-room only crowd of hundreds of fans pack the Des Moines Social Club – 3XWrestling (3XW) is gearing up to hold the biggest tournament in company history.
3XW’s first ever King of Des Moines tournament is scheduled to once again excite area wrestling fans at the Des Moines Social Club on August 21. This spectacular tournament features 11 top competitors doing battle in a unique three-round, one-night tournament format, with the winner being named the first “King of Des Moines” at the end of the night.
What makes this tournament unique in pro wrestling circles is that two of 3XW‘s championships will actually be defended in first round action. 3XW Cruiserweight champion “The Rockstar” Jimmy Rockwell, now in his 13th-month as titleholder, defends the championship against the demanding challenge of “The Canadian Sex Icon” Ryan Slade. The 3XW Tag Team titles will also be defended as champions The Gentleman’s Club, Gage Octane and Mark Sterling, face mega-popular risk takers Mike Sydal and “The Unbreakable” Zach Thompson, collectively known as the High Flyers.
3XW‘s other top titles will also be defended in non-tournament action. “Delicious” Devin Carter defends the 3XW Heavyweight championship against the phenomenal Jeremy Wyatt, the 2008 MissouriWrestlingRevival.com “Wrestler of the Year,” in a much-anticipated main event bout. Tyler Cook also looks to retain the 3XW Pure Wrestling championship against the devastating offensive attack of Kraig Keesaman, who hasn’t tasted defeat since August 2008, in what should be an outstanding technical wrestling bout.
Doors open at 7 p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. start time. The Des Moines Social Club is located at 1408 Locust St. in Des Moines.
Founded in 2005, 3XWrestling, a Des Moines-based organization, has performed in front of thousands of fans across Iowa and been featured on Iowa Public Radio and in publications including Juice and Cityview. 3XW events are held monthly in Des Moines.
3XW and its performers are also heavily involved with charity work – a recent 3XW benefit event in Ottumwa, Iowa featuring one-legged wrestling star Zach Gowen raised over $10,000 to help the family of a young man whose leg was amputated due to his battle with cancer. All proceeds from the event we’re given to the family to offset medical costs, with every wrestler performing on a volunteer basis.
