Professional wrestling is a big ticket these days, but its also a dangerous game. Sold-out arenas around the country showcase muscle-bound sports entertainers high-diving from the top rope, smashing each other with the nearest folding chair, or knocking out the seemingly oblivious referee.
The fighting frenzy continues at Elite Xtreme Wrestlings Xtreme Measures show. This super-sized smackdown will feature former WWE superstars Val Venis, Tommy Dreamer, and Derek Niekirk, as well as an appearance by current Tough Enough trainer Bill DeMott and a slew of local rasslers. Heres the kicker: The raw, masculine, soap opera-like dramatics will play out on the Celebrity Theatres rotating platform. Hope no one gets dizzy.
