AMORY – For the first time since May, the Outlaw Wrestling Organization will host an event at the East Amory Community Center on Saturday, Aug. 24 with belltime at 8 p.m.

“There’s going to be a variety of different types of matches so that gives people who have never been or haven’t been in a while the chance to come out and help pick what they want to see,” said OWO owner Terrell Moore.

Saturday’s event will feature various matches highlighted with a bout between Curley Moe and Big Daddy Neno for the OWO Championship crown.

The event will be the last event until the fall as the wrestling conference is reducing appearances until early 2014.

“Most of these guys have been wrestling every weekend for 10 years and it gives everybody a chance to bring their body back to form. Plus with football coming back, we’ll probably pick back up in January,” Moore said.

According to Moore, the OWO will cut back to running shows to about 5 a year in Amory to focus on other things, but he didn’t elaborate.

Doors open Saturday at 7 p.m. and admission is $6. Children age four and younger get in for free. For more information, call 315-9709.
