Some wrestling matches are fought for national acclaim, some are fought for titles. At this evening's Primos Hardcore & Wrestling Fight Club 2 throwdown, one final match will settle a feud between two of the company's biggest stars, Trajan Ender and Lonnie Valdez, as they battle it out to see who reigns supreme and who retires -- forever.
"They have a kind of student-teacher relationship," says Primos owner Joe "Joey Terrofyn" McDougal of the wrestlers' stained history. McDougal reveals that the once great friendship saw Valdez teach Ender the ropes of professional wrestling, but things between the fighters eventually went sour. Tonight they will settle the score with an epic match of big egos and brute strength.
Whether this drama is rooted in reality or all just a part of the big show is unknown -- but in the tradition of professional wrestling, Primos promises an entertaining night of bloodsport and theater. Doors to Casselman's Bar & Venue, 2620 Walnut Street, open at 6 p.m. with musical guest D'Elite Soldier starting off the show. Matches begin at 6:30 p.m.; tickets for the all-ages event are $10 and can be purchased via www.primoswrestling.com or at the door.
