Perry Saturn Returns to 3XWrestling for TV Tapings in Des Moines, Grinnell
Former WWE/WCW/ECW Star Challenges For Championship
DES MOINES, Iowa – The all-star’s of Midwest pro wrestling will be in action once again as 3XWrestling (3XW) holds two huge events the final weekend of April.
3XW presents Spring Showdown 3 at the Baratta’s@Forte Center in Des Moines on Friday, April 27. 3XW will then continue its live event tour at the Eagles Club in Grinnell, Iowa on Saturday, April 28.
The events will be filmed for future airing on 3XW’s new weekly television program on Iowa CW Network affiliates. 3XW’s half-hour TV show airs Saturday at 6 p.m. on KWKB (eastern Iowa) and 1:30 a.m. Monday on KCWI (central Iowa).
Both events feature former WWE, WCW & ECW star Perry Saturn - who recently returned to the ring in tremendous shape after an eight year hiatus to defeat Gage Octane in February - battling some of the top wrestlers in the Midwest. In Des Moines, Saturn will be challenging national star "The Anarchist" Arik Cannon and Sir Bradley Charles - one of wrestling's top young athletes - in a triple threat match for the 3XW Pure Wrestling championship. In Grinnell, Saturn will be battling former three-time 3XW Heavyweight champion "Delicious" Devin Carter. If Saturn wins the title in Des Moines, his bout in Grinnell will be a championship match.
The Des Moines event also features “The Rebel” Jeremy Wyatt defending his newly won 3XW Heavyweight championship against top contender Jaysin Strife and The American Bulldogs challenging American Ground & Air for the 3XW Tag Team titles.
Also on tap for the Grinnell event will be a battle royal where the winner challenges for the Heavyweight title later in the evening and a highly-anticipated tag team battle (and potentially Tag Team championship match) between the American Bulldogs and the nationally-known Kentucky Buffet. The American Bulldogs features Grinnell native Mark "Maddog" McDowell as one-half of the team.
Doors open for both events at 7 p.m. (6:45 p.m. for advance ticket holders) for a 7:30 p.m. start time. The Barratta's@Forte Center is located at 615 3rd St. in beautiful downtown Des Moines. The Eagles Club is located at 616 4th Ave. in Grinnell.
