BREAKING NEWS: Slam-Pro Wrestling Returns to Middle TN with Slam Fest 2015!

SLAMFEST

Two years ago, one of the most successful independent wrestling promotions to pop up in recent years, Slam-Pro Wrestling, made a huge splash in middle Tennessee! The company held two events in 2013. Slam Fest was held in May in Cookeville at the Tennessee Tech University Memorial Gym and drew around 1,400 fans to see stars such as: Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Diamond Dallas Page, Rikishi, Tommy Dreamer, “Grandmaster Sexay” Brian Christopher, Al Snow, and “The Taskmaster” Kevin Sullivan. Three months later in August, Slam-Pro promoted Summer Heat 2013 in nearby Sparta which featured the first stop on The Outsiders World Tour as nWo founders, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash, met with fans. The show also featured a legends match between “The Wild-Eyed Southern Boy” Tracy Smothers against “Superstar” Bill Dundee. “The Hurricane” Shane Helms was also on hand and wrestled in the main event. That show drew a sellout crowd of almost 900 fans to the White County Agricultural Complex.
