Former Wrestling Champion Begins Remarkable Comeback to the Ring

WWE, WCW, ECW champion Perry Saturn makes his 3XWrestling debut


DES MOINES, Iowa Perry Saturn, one of pro wrestling’s top national stars a decade ago, makes his return to the Midwest for the first time in years as part of 3XWrestling’s Reign of Terror III event.


Reign of Terror III takes place Friday, February 24 at the Baratta’s@Forte Center in Des Moines, Iowa.


Saturn is currently in the beginning stages of his comeback to the ring. His match with top-notch veteran Gage Octane for 3XWrestling (3XW) will be his third match back since returning to wrestling in late 2011 after an eight-year hiatus from the ring.


In the mid-00s, Saturn seemingly vanished from public view after a decorated career in ECW, WCW and WWE. A long battle with drug addiction led to Saturn becoming homeless.


Saturn, however, battled back from his addiction and has now been living clean and sober for over three years. After a considerable amount of hard work and training in the gym, Saturn is prepared to launch a full return to the ring.
