Wrestling fans will have an opportunity to see one of their favorite sports up close and personal on Saturday, Sept. 15, when Main Event Pro Wrestling comes to the Tenaha Special Events Center.

Wrestling begins at 6 p.m. Saturday but patrons are encouraged to come at 5 p.m. for dinner served at the Tenaha Tiger Café where fried fish and chicken strip baskets will be served benefiting this year’s Tenaha senior class.
Wilcott, a professional wrestler himself who fights under the stage name of Big Daddy Yum Yum, said the wrestling card will feature a full slate of matches, including women’s wrestling
In conjunction with the wrestling show, promoters will be visiting area school campuses presenting programs on bullying, Wilcott said.
“We’ll be talking about what to do if you’re bullied; how to avoid being bullied and, most importantly, how not to be a by-stander to bullying,” he said.
On Saturday, fans can attend a free pre-fight pizza party at 12 p.m. at the Wright Chrysler Dodge Ram dealership on Highway 96. Guests will have the chance to meet some of the wrestlers.
“Meet the wrestlers, ask wrestlers questions, watch the press conference and eat free pizza,” Wilcott said. “Later that night come to Tenaha Special Event Center in Tenaha and see all the superstars deliver hard hitting action in the ring.”
