CHICAGO HEIGHTS, Ill. (May 7, 2019) – Marian Catholic High School will welcome professional wrestling stars from around the world for Warrior Wrestling 5 on Sunday, May 12. 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.
Current and alumni stars from every major promotion around the world will be on hand, including WWE, Impact Wrestling, Mexico’s AAA and CMLL, Lucha Underground, Ring of Honor, and the brand new national American promotion All Elite Wrestling.
WWE star Molly Holly—who is a two-time WWE Women’s Champion and competed recently in WWE’s first-ever all-female pay-per-view event “Evolution”—will serve as special guest referee for the Warrior Wrestling Women’s Championship match between Tessa Blanchard and Jordynne Grace. Blanchard is the daughter of pro wrestling legend Tully Blanchard, and both she and Grace are current stars of Impact Wrestling.
WWE star Austin Aries will battle Impact Wrestling star Eddie Edwards in a steel cage match.
The Lucha Brothers (Pentagon and Fenix), the two most-sought after Mexican luchardores in all of wrestling, make their return to Warrior Wrestling in tag team action.
Impact Wrestling Champion Brian Cage will defend the Warrior Wrestling title against Wardlow.
Tickets for the event can be purchased online at www.warriorwrestling.net. Prices range from $30 for general admission bleacher seats to $100 for first-row ringside seats. Bell time is 2:00pm on May 12, with doors opening to the public at 1:00pm. A VIP Fan Fest will take place before the show from 12:00–2:00pm.
The VIP Fan Fest will allow attendees to meet the wrestlers as well as take pictures and receive autographs. All autographs and pictures are free in the Fan Fest, and $25 admission tickets to the Fest are also available through the Warrior Wrestling website. Food and concessions will be available for purchase, and for those fans over 21, several local breweries will have their craft beer on tap.
All proceeds from the event go to benefit scholarships for local students to attend Marian Catholic High School. Marian Catholic serves students from over 70 local communities, including Lansing, and the school strives to make tuition assistance available to students in need.
The event will be family-friendly. Card subject to change.
