The Athletic Department is going to bring some post-game entertainment to the main event against SMU on September 1st. Yes, NT is bringing a handful of Von Erichs to wrestle on the Apogee field after the game.
There were inklings of this last year when Wren Baker tweeted at one of the Von Erichs, and it looks to have become a full-on wrestling extravaganza that is very much in line with the old-school barnstorming mentality that dominated the sport back when it wasn’t quite clear that it was sports-entertainment.
It is a nice nod to local history and a cool way to mix in some alumni of the two schools. Good stuff.
