WWE Superstars coming to area

Thursday, December 29, 2005

The Clay County Events Center at the fairgrounds in Spencer has just inked a World Wrestling Entertainment show for Saturday, March 25, a preview of the Wrestlemania event that will occur a week later in Chicago. The hard-hitting cast of good guys and bad guys is one of the most popular cable TV and touring acts in the world. The pro wrestlers' performances this season are dedicated to the late former champion Eddie Guererro (shown at center), who passed away suddenly in Minneapolis while preparing for a show a few weeks ago. The Events Center will be reconfigured into a 2,000-seat boxing-style venue for the first time to host the event. Details of the show remain to be scheduled. In other events scheduled for early 1996, admission is free for the annual Northwest Iowa Home Show Jan. 13-15 (see below); tickets go on sale in January for a pair of Lipizzaner Royal Stallions shows on Feb. 25; tickets go on sale in February for an Ozarks-style concert, The Braschler Music Show from Branson, taking the stage March 17.
