Pro-Wrestler Visits East Texas

by Ramonica R. Jones

There's an internationally known celebrity in East Texas. Rowdy Roddy Piper is one of many athletes participating in patriotic wrestling this weekend in Nacogdoches.

Piper is in the Guiness Book of World Records. He's wrestled in more than 7,000 pro fights over his 37-year career. All proceeds from the event will be used to buy phone cards for our troops overseas.

Piper said, "I'm not sure if it's ten minutes, 20 minutes, but they get to phone home. I don't care what you think politically, but our boys are over there and we need to take care of them and this promotion does that."

Several other wrestlers are on the patriotic wrestling card. Saturday night's event starts at 8:00 p.m. at the Nacogdoches Expo Center.
