KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Twenty-five years ago, scores of enthusiastic fans both young and old could hardly wait to pack the now historic Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas, to check out the wild and funny pro wrestling matches. But eventually the popular pastime would fade away.

Now, Belton native Chris Gough has brought the zany sport back to the metro. For more than a year now, fans have been flocking the Turner Recreation Center to check out the monthly matches that will keep you laughing and cheering.

FOX 4’s Robert Townsend goes inside the ring and beyond for a closer look at the return of pro wrestling to the metro, as we meet some of the professional wrestlers, the unpredictable fans and the one man behind it all.

The final wrestling match of the year at the Turner Rec Center in KCK will be on December 10th at 7:00 p.m. Tickets range from $10 – $20, while children 5 and under get in free. Click here for more information.
