3XWrestling comes to Cherokee County Fair

Friday, June 24, 2011

One of the special events at the Cherokee County Fair scheduled for July 7-10 this year is the 3XWrestling entertainment. The show will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 8, at the south end of the fairgrounds.

3XWrestling was founded in 2005 and since then has become one of the top wrestling promotions in the Midwest. The company is based in Des Moines, where they perform several of their shows, but also travels all around Iowa to entertain a vast amount of people.

3XWrestling is similar to WWE in the aspect of professional wrestling but it does have its own specialties. It has an atmosphere that is very fan-friendly and also family friendly. Parents can bring young children to 3XWrestling events without having to worry about what the children might hear.

3xWrestling prides itself on a high level of interaction between fans and wrestlers. Anyone seeking an autograph or picture with one of the wrestlers is guaranteed to get at least that.

In the past, 3XWrestling has taken part in Iowa Comic Book Club's I-CON 2006 & 2007 events and has also performed at the Iowa State Fair in conjunction with the Bad Boys of Racing's Night of Destruction Demolition Derby.

For the holidays, 3XWrestling takes Toys for Tots donations at the door of a December event. In the past, 3XWrestling has held a benefit show for the Children's Hospital of Omaha and has also taken part in numerous benefits for injured athletes that lack good insurance coverage.

3XWrestling events are not just for wrestling fans. Much like I-Cubs games or Musketeers matches, 3XWrestling provides entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.
