Wrestling for a Good Cause

The Youth Opportunities Center continues to make strides in rebuilding, after a fire last June left thousands of dollars in damage. Sunday night, Pure Action Championship Wrestling is hosting a live wrestling show, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the YOC. It's the PACW's New Years Resolution event. Organizers say wrestling fans are sure to get a great show, and help rebuild the YOC at the same time.
It's a well choreographed fight between each opponent. Each body slam, every punch, is planned in advance. These well timed shots aren't just for bringing a crowd to their feet, but also for the safety of the wrestlers.
"There are countless moves, thousands of moves to be done each one has to be done a certain way otherwise we could have someone be seriously hurt," said wrestler Ivory Carey.
It's not only the entertainment in the ring that's bringing people out to the event, but also the roof above them.
"We are looking to make $5,000 to get the roof repaired, so obviously it won't be cold in the winter time, hot in the summer time, or leaked when it rains," said Carey.
In order to accomplish their goal and lay the smack-down on the repairs these athletes know they'll need to bring their 'A' game. The evening's main event will put about a thousand pounds in ring, as PACW's Heavyweight champion Mr. Brown takes on the other big man, Oklahoma Nightmare Carnage .
And for the disbelievers of this sport....
"People who think wrestling is fake, come on in i'll show you how fake it is," said Carey. A challenge from a top contender.
