F1RST Wrestling: Live

Sept. 7
6:30 p.m.
Sports - Spectator

The hard-hitting, high-flying insanity of F1RST Wrestling is hitting the road—kind of. While the biannual Wrestlepalooza shows have become a staple of First Avenue, “The Anarchist” Arik Cannon, “All Ego” Ethan Page, Colt Cabana, and all of your favorite misfits of the mat will make their Cabooze debut this Thursday. F1RST Wrestling has become a must-see spectacle for wrestling junkies and casual fans alike, as their blend of local ass-kickers, high-risk aerialists, and over-the-top characters like Thunderfrog (a real-life video game character who swings a massive hammer) and Space Monkey (a half-man, half-monkey wrestler from space, obviously) make these shows more fun than anything you’ll see on Monday Night Raw. This is your last chance to catch the best wrestling talent in Minnesota before the snow hits, and the event should give you the testosterone pump you need to shake off your State Fair hangover. 18+.
