[Indy Event] New England Championship Wrestling proudly presents one of its biggest events of the year, the 5th Annual IRON 8 Championship Tournament, Saturday night, May 31 at the National Guard Armory, 1000 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA. Bell time is 7:00 PM. The IRON 8 is the most unique tournament in pro wrestling. Described as “the ultimate test of skill, stamina and strategy,” it presents eight great athletes with an unusual challenge. It begins with the 8 selected wrestlers competing in an opening round consisting of four singles matches. The winners then face each other in a 4 way, 45 minute iron man match. Whoever scores the most pinfalls or submissions in 45 minutes wins the match and is that year’s IRON 8 Champion. It is an athletic test unlike any other, and the victor truly proves he is an iron man. For more information, go to www.NECWwrestling.com
