Big wrestling event upcoming at CMS

CONYERS -- Professional wrestling fans in the area have a great opportunity this weekend. Conyers Middle School will host a Continental Championship Wrestling 15-man battle royal Saturday at 7 p.m. The event will feature a number of CCW stars, including Omega, Chris Turner, Mad Dog Miller, Blake Berretta and tag-team champions The Marcs Brothers, along with Salem High School graduate Caleb Buxton and Conyers Middle School wrestling coach Fred Avery.

The winner of the battle royal will face Jonathan Wells in a CCW title match later in the evening.

"This is a great opportunity for Conyers Middle School to raise money for our athletic department," said Avery. "CCW has worked hard to promote this event and we are looking forward to hosting the matches on Saturday. Our plans are to make this a monthly event with the goal of raising enough money to buy new wrestling mats for the wrestling team at CMS."

All advance tickets are $5 and can be purchased from any Conyers Middle football player, and tickets are $7 for adults and $6 for students at the door the night of the event. For more information on Continental Championship Wrestling, visit ccwrestling.biz.
