Pro wrestling fans in Fulton will soon get to watch some grappling for a worthy charity component.

New Breed Wrestling — which is headquartered in Eldon — has scheduled a benefit show for the Super Sam Foundation on April 17 at the Fulton Event Center at 1915 N. Bluff St.

Tickets are $15, with $5 of every ticket sold going to the Super Sam Foundation, a local charity that fights childhood cancer.

"We're a mom-and-pop organization," said Jeremy Harrison, a 2000 Fulton High School graduate who helps promote and book shows for New Breed Wrestling. "We pick a town, go in and find a building, and then go from there (in scheduling an event).

"I always want to promote my hometown and do something for the community. That's how we hooked up with the Super Sam Foundation."

Scott Zei is the majority owner of New Breed Wrestling. Harrison and Gordon Atkins — also a 2000 Fulton graduate —  assist with the organization's operation.

"When you say pro wrestling, people roll their eyes," Harrison said. "(Our wrestlers) are good and wholesome — they don't do a lot of talking. We put on a good, solid, entertaining family show. It's for a good cause, and we hope people come out and support us and Super Sam — this will be our first time in Fulton."

Harrison explained New Breed Wrestling is still finalizing the card for the April 17 show. One match that is set is the main event, a world title bout featuring champion The Mathmagician against Volatile Curtis Wylde.

Following a typical pro wrestling storyline, the match comes with compelling stipulations. If The Mathmagician prevails and retains his world title, Wylde is barred from wrestling again.

However, if Wylde is the winner, he not only becomes world champion, but he also assumes ownership of New Breed Wrestling.

"It's going to be a hard-hitting match with some serious tension — the title is on the line," Harrison said. "There's a chance that Curtis is going to be my boss. I'm not going to tell you who I want to win the match."

Doors open for the April 17 show at 6 p.m., followed by bell time at 7.

Tickets are available at Dairy Queen and Wild + Well Studio in Fulton. Seating is limited for the show.
