When I was a kid I was a big wrestling fan. I would watch every week on tv and my dad would take me and my friends and cousins to the matches from time to time. Bob Backlund, Ivan Putski, George “The Animal” Steal, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, and Tito Santana were some of my favorites.
We had the opportunity to speak with a couple of professional wrestlers on the show recently. Joining us in-studio IWF (Independent Wrestling Federation) wrestlers Benjamin T. Asher, also a former Rutgers student, and Kevin Knight who’s been with the IWF since its inception in 1998.
They stopped in to promote their IWF 25th Anniversary Event on December 10th at 6:00 PM at New Brunswick Middle School. The IWF is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year and features world-class athletes locked in the intense competition of muscle and power, all to benefit City of New Brunswick Recreation.
