Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling, the second-largest pro wrestling company in North America, has announced a big event coming to Memphis. On Saturday night, June 11, TNA Will present “Basebrawl” at AutoZone Park.
Stars announced for the show include TNA World Champion Sting, Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle, Matt Hardy, “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner, “The King of the Mountain” Jeff Jarrett, and Matt Morgan. It’s very unusual for Sting to work a date other than TV and pay-per-view, which is a sign that TNA is treating this as a big deal.
Although he hasn’t been announced, management at The Pony should be aware that “Nature Boy” Ric Flair works for TNA, so get ready to roll out the red carpet for him later that evening.
After the wrestling ends, there will be a fireworks show. Tickets will be on sale at 10 AM tomorrow at the box office and on the Memphis Redbirds website. In addition to regular tickets, there will also be a $50 VIP ticket for sale that includes a meet-and-greet with the TNA stars at 5:30 that afternoon.
