The following press release was issued today:
Legends of Wrestling Returns to MLB
Miami Marlins Park, July 31st
Legends of Wrestling (LoW) is coming off of a huge show at Citi Field where we packed the house and brought back some great memories for the fans; created some new memories too! Ric Flair and Bret Hart were on hand and the Nasty Boys had a hardcore match that was so intense I feared for my own safety ringside! Luckily though, Mr. Anderson’s head took the brunt of the garbage can lid and I was safe. There were over 30 Wrestlers at the New York show this June and the Mets fans in attendance had a great night. Renowned orthopedic surgeon John Harker, ringside with Majestic Mirrors Vice President Frank Filippelli both had the time of their lives; they even got to have dinner with Bill Goldberg. I’m telling you, at these events it’s more than a wrestling show, it’s an experience! People arrive as fans and leave as friends. Speaking of Goldberg, if you’re a wrestling fan, I’m sure that you read on WrestlingInc.com orWrestleZone.com how he speared Scott Steiner and Jackhammered Luke Gallows to close out the show. So, in the spirit of Goldberg’s line “Who’s Next”, I wanted to let Wrestling Fans know “What’s Next” for LoW as we take the show to the 305, Miami baby!
LoW has once again teamed up with Major League Baseball’s (MLB) own Miami Marlins for yet another in-game experience. Modelo Especial presents Legends of Wrestling Night July 31stas the Marlins take on the visiting Padres at Marlins Park.
We have some really cool stuff in store for the fans too! Fans who buy the $25 Legends of Wrestling Night package not only get meet and greet opportunities for autographs and selfies with Mick Foley, Kevin Nash, The Nasty Boys, Tyrus (formerly known as Brodus Clay) and Luke (Bushwhackers), they also get a limited edition Marlins World Order (mWo) t-shirt. That $25 package gets you a ticket to the Lexus Legends Level too and possibly a beer in the face from Brian Knobs but no promises.
Knobs and I have been working hand in hand with the Marlins PR team; Matt Britten and his team are ready to help us give the fans an incredible experience at Marlins Park. I’m so excited to throw on my Uncle Louie Marlins Jersey and get to work. Home team!
Before I forget…
JoJo from the WWE’s Total Divas will be blessing us with a rendition of the National Anthem before the game. Mick Foley will be throwing the first pitch. Kevin Nash mentioned something about beating up somebody or something….Now let’s get to The Fat Boys’ Prince Markie Dee’s favorite part: Happy Hour at the Budweiser Bat from 5:30pm to 7:00pm including $1 hot dogs and $4 domestic drafts (so we know where to find Brian Knobs and Jerry Sags right?). Stick around for something special after the game too; a Legends of Wrestling themed post game fireworks show thanks to Sagicor Life Insurance!
And last but not least; July 31st is Jose Fernandez’ birthday and Legends of Wrestling has a special custom made LoW Jose Fernandez World Champion Belt just for him by Rey Rey or World Champion Belts. True Wrestling fans are going to want to see this baby.
See you there. Dale
