AWL I: The Beginning, moves to November 30th in Cedar Rapids
The American Wrestling League has postponed its August 18 show, AWL I The Beginning, “The Greatest Wrestling Show on Earth!”, to November 30, 2018. Changes have been made due to discussions with USA Wrestling, which felt the original date might serve as a distraction for World Championship preparation for the October 20th, 2018 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
AWL will remain at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. All tickets sold for the August 18, 2018 event will be honored on November 30 or money will be refunded to those who cannot attend on November 30, 2018.
Along with the American Wrestling League launching its inaugural event, many of the greatest Iowa wrestlers will be recognized along with the state of Iowa’s great fans and supporters of our sport of wrestling over the last 50 years.
In addition to recognizing Iowa for all its contributions to wrestling, USA Wrestling and the U.S. Wrestling Foundation will present the Big Checks from the Living the Dream Medal Fund to USA’s medalists from the World Championships.
Kyle Snyder, David Taylor, Kyle Dake, Logan Stieber, Frank Molinaro, Isaiah Martinez, Alex Dieringer, along with Iowa standout wrestlers, Cory Clark, Brandon Sorensen, Sammy Brooks, Joe Colon, and many more, are slotted for the action-packed event at the U.S. Cellular Center on November 30TH.
The AWL will bring publicity to our sport of wrestling and increase the income for wrestlers who work so hard while they build their lives. Every match has a $10,000.00 prize, $2,500.00 for each wrestler to compete, with the winner earning a $5,000.00 prize bonus. These competitions will occur all over the United States and our intention is to eventually lead to a four to ten team league that competes for money and annual championship during a planned season.
The American Wrestling League is extremely thankful to all its partners and sponsors who have committed to supporting AWL I The Beginning. The AWL’s partners and sponsors include: USA Wrestling, The United States Wrestling Foundation, NWCA, Resilite, ScrapLife, Pure and Clean Sports, TrackWrestling, Takedown Radio, The Hawkeye Wrestling Club, Titan Mercury Wrestling Club and BTSLA.
It is time to elevate the great sport of Wrestling to a much anticipated professional level and shine a light on the best American wrestlers in the world. Our millions of dedicated fans have been waiting for this moment. Join us in Iowa and watch history being made.
