You’ve held tight to most of your resolutions but how about that pledge to spend more of your dollars locally? The homegrown Arizona Wrestling Federation is offering top notch sports entertainment with its big events such as New Dawn on Saturday, January 17.
The latest outing for the fledgling wrestling fed serves up a tall order of slobber-knocking donnybrooks featuring personalities like luchador sensations Los FoxStars, Adrian Hawkins, and AWF champ Donny Gee. The biggest debut, though, will be of the new headquarters for all the wrasslin’ action, the new AWF Academy Arena.
The Arizona Wrestling Federation presents New Dawn at 5658 North 51st Avenue in Glendale. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with matches starting at 6. Tickets are $7. Visit www.arizonawrestlingfederation.com for more information.
