Those protocols accompany this document, and the Governor’s guidance is available here.

The in-ring highlight of the evening will be the clash between All Elite Wrestling’s recent title contender and superheavyweight Brian Cage and New Japan Pro Wrestling’s hulking Jeff Cobb, a 2004 Olympian wrestler.

Kids 16 and under are admitted FREE to the event at the door with a paying adult. Tickets can be purchased online at www.warriorwrestling.net, with General Admission Field Seating Tickets for $45 and Bleachers / Standing Room Tickets for $35. A scaled-down, socially distanced VIP Fan Fest will take place before the show from 5:45 to 7:15pm. The event will be family-friendly. Card subject to change.

Proceeds from the event go to benefit scholarships and student activities at Marian Catholic High School. To learn more about Marian Catholic, visit www.marianchs.com. For inquiries about the event, please contact Marian Catholic principal Mr. Steve Tortorello at [email protected]
