BRISTOL- This Friday Muzzy Field will be transformed into a wrestling ring for “Wrestling Under the Stars.” This is the first time in 30 years there will be wrestling at Muzzy Field.

The wrestling show beings at 8 p.m. There is a meet and greet starting at 4:30 p.m. that is free with a ticket, which are between $10 and $50. There are fees for autographs and pictures.

“It will be an unforgettable evening of entertainment with friends and family,” said Bristol Blues owner Bob Dabkowski in a press release. “We encourage everyone to make it out and be a part of this fun and historic event.”

Wrestlers such as Rey Mysterio, Kevin Nash, Ryback, Jack Swagger, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Wrecking Ball Lagurskey and Ron Zombie will be jumping into the ring. Kurt Adonis, a Bristol native who has been wrestling for several years, will also make a special appearance.

“It’s a great family-style show ... and something that can appeal to all ages,” said Mark Walerysiak Jr., who is helping coordinate the event for the Blues. “It’s sports. It’s drama. It’s athletics.”

There will be between seven and eight matches for audience members to enjoy. There will be “a little bit of everything” with lots of “acrobatics and high-flying maneuvers,” Walerysiak stated.

Wrestlers will take part in one-on-one, triple threat and tag team matches.

The Bristol Blues and Northeast Wrestling are co-sponsors of the event.

“Northeast is really coming through, it’s going to be a truly memorable experience for people. The stars are aligned, and we couldn’t be more excited,” Walerysiak said.

There will also be some up and coming wrestlers looking to show off their talent.

The concession stand will be offering a variety of food, including San Gennaro pizza, drinks and alcoholic beverages. Ben and Jerry’s of Connecticut will also be serving their ice cream.
