A lot of these people may not realize the amount of work that goes into getting ready for every show. “I like to equate our live events as a mix between a rock concert and a circus”, said Mark Holter, the co-owner of the Northern Outlaw Wrestling company.
“You can’t go to the movies and yell at the screen and have them yell back. Here you can yell at us, we’ll yell back, we’ll high five you. We’ll make you part of the show as much as we possibly can without putting you in the ring,” added wrestler Ryan Cruz.
That’s exactly the experience fans will get when the Northern Outlaw Wrestlers hit the ring.
“We start setting up the ring Wednesday night, Thursday night we finish that up, and set up chairs, it’s a long process”, said Holter.
Three full days of work go into preparing for every Northern Outlaw event. From setting up the ring and set, to audio equipment and lights, it’s all for the fans.
“The kids get really into it, and that’s the best thing we can see for wrestling. If you start when they’re kids you’ve got fans for life. So that’s a cool thing, then you see families getting into it. Everyone has a great time,” stated Darren Corbin.
The most important thing for these wrestlers is making sure the people in the crowd are having a great time. “If you’ve never been to a show you have to come out because there’s something for everybody. If you like wrestling you’re going to have a great time, if it makes you laugh, then you’re still going to be entertained, and that’s what we’re here to do,” said Rob James, another Northern Outlaw participant.
Northern Outlaw has two shows this weekend, Friday night and Saturday night. Starting bell rings at 7:00 both nights.
