CHICAGO HEIGHTS, Ill.

The wrestling event will serve as a fundraiser for scholarships for students as well as a “fun-raiser” for the school community and surrounding area of the south suburbs and northwest Indiana.

The main event for the evening is the first-ever War of Attrition Match, a new type of wrestling match that has never been done in WWE or any other company. The match will feature eight wrestling superstars from different organizations and styles of wrestling—Rey Mysterio, Austin Aries, Pentagon, Fenix, Rich Swann, Brian Cage, Jeff Cobb, and Sammy Guevara.
