I rented Sumo Wrestling outfits and built excitement up in the middle and high schools with posters and word of mouth. The main event was the high school principal and the baseball coach. It was hilarious! The message for the night was “What do you wrestle with in life?”
I set the ring up with chairs all around and the “Are you ready to rumble” song as the contestants came out. We even had two senior citizens participate. We average 75 in our youth on Wednesday night, on this night we had 130. It was awesome!!!
