Arlington Heights Wrestling Card To Benefit Chicago Adaptive Sports

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL — Just one week after WrestleMania thrilled pro wrestling fans across the globe, local residents will have a chance to see some grapplers up close, and for a good cause. MWA Pro Wrestling is set to invade the Camelot Park Community Center Saturday for a fundraiser to benefit Chicago Adaptive Sports. TNA superstar “Cowboy” James Storm will be featured on the card, which will include three championship matches, according to organizers.

“We can’t thank enough the Camelot staff and the Arlington Heights Park District for allowing us to use their venue for the event,” said Seth Goldberg, of Arlington Heights, at last week’s Arlington Heights Village Board meeting. “It’s such a fun event to do.

Goldberg, who is co-chair of the MWA Pro Wrestling card along with Ryan Bowers, said 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Chicago Adaptive Sports. The non-profit serves the needs of the adaptive sports community in the Chicagoland area by providing programming, support and advocacy for individuals with physical and visual disabilities.

“Eventually, what we’re trying to do is get an adaptive building for all adaptive sports like basketball and other sports,” said Goldberg, who added that it was the fourth year of the family-friendly event and over $4,000 has been raised for the Chicago Adaptive Sports in that time.

Goldberg said the event begins at 6 p.m. and will run until 8 p.m./8:30 p.m. The cost is $40 for VIP front row seating (includes a meet-and-greet before the show at 5 p.m., t-shirt and poster); $140 for a table of 10; $20 for front row seats; $15 for general adult admission; and $5 for children 12 and under. A QR code for tickets is available on MWA’s Facebook page, or they can be purchased at the door.

“The MWA is very excited & honored to be a part of this event again in 2024. We cannot wait to entertain all the fans for this great cause,” MWA Wrestling owner Brian Plantz, who wrestles under the name Brian Blade and is the current heavyweight champion, tells Patch.
