Heath Hatton’s campaign as Classic Wrestling Champion begins with a difficult showdown against #1 contender Ricky Cruz. It all goes down Saturday, August 16th at the East Carondelet Community Center.
This is the first time Heath Hatton and “The King of Chaos” Cruz have met for the title.
Cruz is swimming in leather; he recently won a new belt in Independence, Mo. He now holds the Dynamo Pro, GWF, and Dynamo Pro Tag Team Titles. If he beats Hatton, he will need an assistant.
The co-feature is a six-man tag pitting Gary Jackson, Jim Hoffarth, and Shorty Biggs against Waco, Flash Flanagan, and Bull Bronson.
Also on the card: Ken Kasa vs. Outtkast, Ax Allwardt vs. Red River Jack, Daniel Eads vs. Matt Cage, JJ Garrett vs. Mohamad Ali Vaez, and Joker vs. Mallaki Matthews.
“Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff, a main event wrestler from the first WrestleMania, will be in attendance. The Professional Wrestling Hall of Famer will be available for autographs.
