BEVERLY, MASSACHUSETTS, SEPTEMBER 24, 2016 – There’s a Rumble coming to Beverly this Saturday night. Thirty of the best wrestlers in New England will vie for the vacant Bay State Championship as the North Shore Rumble will headline ElkMania 4, which emanates from the Beverly/Salem Elks Lodge, 39 Bow Street. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Bell time is at 7:00 PM. Tickets cost $10.00 in advance, $12.00 at the door and are on sale at Silver Moon Comics & Collectibles located inside of the East India Square Mall, Salem, MA.
There are several favorites in this talented field of thirty, including some local flavor. Salem’s Derek Simonetti vanquished his arch nemesis at last year’s extravaganza and now has his sights set on Bay State gold. “Tough Talk” Tony Spencer might be the most hated person in his hometown of Danvers as his nefarious tactics could lead him to a championship victory.
“The Viking” Jon Wilson is a lifelong Salem resident who uses his size and strength to dominate the competition. As a recent graduate of Salem State University’ prestigious Nursing program, this could be Wilson’s last match as he embarks on a new career path. “The Unequaled One” Todd Sople is a villainous staple of Peabody’s Liberty States Wrestling promotion and plans on doing whatever it takes to become the Bay State Champion.
Adding to the evening’s events will be a battle for the All-Star Championship. Joey Warner looks to defend his title against the man who gave him the most haunting loss of his career, Beverly’s own “The Wrestling Machine” Tommy Corbin.
Also signed to appear: NCW Heavyweight Champion Lumberjake, “The Gentleman” Burke Beckett, “Insane” Dick Lane, Delilah Hayden, Gloucester’s Mr. Chad Epik, “The Showoff” Mike Paiva, “The International Male” Aaron Amadeus, The Best Around” TK O’Ryan, “The Dan Ram” Danny Ramirez and more!
Make sure you don’t miss out on the biggest wrestling match to ever hit the North Shore at Elkmania 4 this Saturday night. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Elks National Foundation, which supports youth programs, veteran services, and scholarship initiatives.
