As we reported yesterday, the closure of Tempe nightclub The Sets this past weekend left Impact Zone Wrestling, the Valley's resident grappling group, searching for a new location to hold its bi-weekly slamfests.
We just spoke with IZW spokeperson Chris McClennan, who informed us that they've found a new home for upcoming event, albiet temporarily. Starting on Tuesday, September 8, IZW will be featured at the Rage in the Cage Training Center (1848 East University Drive in Tempe). Bell time is at 7:30 p.m. and admission is $7.
