DES MOINES, Iowa – 3XWrestling (3XW), a Des Moines-based leader in Midwest professional wrestling, is proud to announce it will be captivating fans in Grinnell, Iowa for the first time.
3XWrestling’s 2012 live event tour visits the Eagles Club in Grinnell on Saturday, February 25 with an action-packed card featuring many of the top wrestlers in the central United States.
For Mark “Maddog” McDowell – an awe-inspiring powerhouse weighing in at 300 lbs. – it’s a chance for his career to come full circle. A Grinnell native, the event on Feb 25th will be the first time he’s wrestled in his hometown during his career.
McDowell, an Army veteran and former member of the Grinnell Griffins Rugby Club, is one-half of the sensational “American Bulldogs” tag team with partner “The American Fury” Jon West. The “Bulldogs” are not only mainstays in 3XWrestling, but are a successful tag team throughout the Midwest. Their matches for Metro Pro Wrestling in Kansas City are regularly seen on television throughout Kansas and Missouri.
The main event of the evening features 3XW Heavyweight champion “The Fittest Wrestler in the World” Mark Sterling battling 2009 Pro Wrestling Illustrated “Rookie of the Year” Mike Sydal (brother of WWE star Evan Bourne). If Sterling can retain his championship the night before – at 3XW’s Reign of Terror III event featuring Perry Saturn in Des Moines – then the Heavyweight championship will be defended in Grinnell.
The rest of the Grinnell card features the all-stars of Midwest pro wrestling!
Doors open for 3XW’s Grinnell event at 7 p.m. (6:45 p.m. for advance ticket holders) for a 7:30 p.m. start time. The Eagles Club is located at 616 4th Ave. in beautiful Grinnell.
