Adult-Friendly Slam U Wrestling to Debut at Arizona Event Center on July 25

Slam U Wrestling doesn't exactly pull any punches when it comes to its hard sell. Flyers for the new Phoenix-based indie wrestling promotion declare that its monthly smackdowns, which kick off on Thursday, July 25, at the Arizona Event Center in Mesa, will be adult-oriented and feature a mix of "BANDS, BOOZE, & BLOOD!!" Meanwhile, its Facebook states that local wrestling fans can expect an "ANYTHING GOES!!" atmosphere.

And Slam U's general manager Gabriel Gallo backs up these proclamations, telling us that its brand of pro wrestling will feature risqué storylines and material, as well as other edgier aspects. Hence, the promotion is "geared more towards adults and the more rowdier type of fan." Especially those who aren't afraid to drop F-bombs.
