Coliseum Championship Wrestling returns to Evansville for free show

Coliseum Championship Wrestling is returning to the Evansville Coliseum this weekend.

Organizers say the Coliseum has hosted wrestling greats for the past 70 years.

A revamped CCW organization aims to bring similar top-notch talent back to the tri-state.

Wrestlers spent Friday practicing and fine tuning things for the big event Saturday night.

"They will definitely be entertained for sure," said Commissioner Dave Matthews. "Even being a commissioner, I can never tell when something's going to happen. Sometimes I'm just as shocked as the audience is when something happens. It's just good entertainment, the crowd can expect a good time, a lot of energy, lot of emotion and some of the best wrestling that they'll find anywhere."

Organizers say there will be giveaways and raffles.

The show starts Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is completely free.
