Coliseum Championship Wrestling returns to Evansville for free show

Posted: Updated:

Coliseum Championship Wrestling is returning to the Evansville Coliseum this weekend.

Organizers say the Coliseum has hosted wrestling greats for the past 70 years.

A revamped CCW organization aims to bring similar top-notch talent back to the tri-state.

Wrestlers spent Friday practicing and fine tuning things for the big event Saturday night.

"They will definitely be entertained for sure," said Commissioner Dave Matthews. "Even being a commissioner, I can never tell when something's going to happen. Sometimes I'm just as shocked as the audience is when something happens. It's just good entertainment, the crowd can expect a good time, a lot of energy, lot of emotion and some of the best wrestling that they'll find anywhere."

Organizers say there will be giveaways and raffles.

The show starts Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is completely free.
