BRISTOL - “We love Bristol, it’s one of our favorite places,” said President and owner of Northeast Wrestling Michael Lombardi.

On Saturday, August 25th at 7 p.m. at Muzzy Field, fans can meet and greet the wrestling stars at the “Wrestling Under the Stars” event.

“This is the second time we’ve partnered off with the Bristol Blues,” said Lombardi. “Last year we had a wrestling event at Muzzy Field, and we completely sold out. It’s a unique event to have outside. It’ll be in late August so the weather is nice and comfortable. It’s just a cool experience to be outside enjoying a show under the stars.”

Fans will be delighted to know that WWE Hall of Famers Mark Henry and Jerry “The King” Lawler will be at the main event. Another famous wrestler coming to the event will be John Morrison, who will be a contestant on the TV show “Survivor” this fall. The ring announcer will be local resident, Kurt Adonis.

“It’s very fan interactive and family friendly. Kids and families can meet the wrestlers beforehand. They can shake hands, snap pictures and get autographs,” said Lombardi.

Lombardi, who started Northeast Wrestling almost 24 years ago, said he is pleased to see the growth of the company.

“We tour in about eight different states, and we’re very happy to be returning back to Muzzy Field. We’ve got about 25 wrestlers under our organization, and some of them are former WWE superstars. ‘Wrestling Under the Stars’ will be a good night of fun and entertainment for the community. It’ll bring the whole family together,” said Lombardi.

Tickets range from $10 bleacher seats to $50 front row alongside the ring. Tickets can be purchased online at www.northeastwrestling.com or at the Bristol Store located 357 N. Main Street in Bristol. For more information call the Blues Store at 860-582-2583.
