Tried-N-True Wrestling and Impact Wrestling held a pre-show meet and greet for their fans, prior to presenting an evening of entertainment for the troops and their families at Fort Campbell.
“This is our pre-show party for the Impact Wrestling/Tried-N-True Salute To The Troops,” Eric Lehman said. “We have partnered with Impact to bring the troops at Fort Campbell a free show. Anyone who can get on post can come to the event and we are expecting about 1,500 people, so it will be standing room only. It's going to be a lot of fun.”
The meet and greet, which was held at Pinnacle Family Entertainment Center, was an opportunity for fans to spend time with their favorite wrestlers and personalities. There was a picture booth and a question and answer session.
“We have The War Kings here tonight, Crimson and Jax Dane,” Lehman said. “We also have Bram, a very well known Impact Wrestler. Tony LoCascio and Chris Melendez are here too. Melendez is known as Sarge. He is an Iraq war veteran who lost a leg, and now wrestles with a prosthetic.
“There are many more from Impact here tonight, lots of great athletes for the fans to meet. We're excited for a really great show at Fort Campbell.”
