The next Kansas City Xtreme Wrestling (KCXW) professional wrestling show at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in downtown Kansas City, Missouri on February 12th, 2017, will be a very special event called “Wrestling for Vets”. The proceeds from the “Wrestling for Vets” event (after covering expenses) will be donated to the Semper Fi Fund, a charity which provides financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families.
“As a disabled Vet, I personally know some of the struggles that our nation’s Veterans face. It's been a goal of mine since I was discharged from the Marine Corps in 2006 to help out my brothers and sisters in arms as much as possible. Now with the success of our Pro Wrestling promotion here in KC I hope to be able to raise funds for disabled Vets and other good causes,” said KCXW President Jordan ‘Smiley’ Rogers.
With the “Wrestling for Vets” event, KCXW continues its proud history of supporting personnel from all branches of the US military. As a retired member of the US Marine Corps, President Rogers often uses his role as head of KCXW to honor military service. KCXW roster members Jesse “Bigg Dogg” Price, Billy “The Sarge” Cravens, and Anthony “A-Clay” Clayton are also active or retired members of the United States Armed Forces. All three can be seen in action at the event.
Kansas Air National Guard member Bigg Dogg will be in the Main Event
“Wrestling for Vets” continues the acclaimed KCXW: Second Sundays at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, a series of premiere pro wrestling events that take place on the second Sunday of every month in 2017. Other featured performers at “Wrestling for Vets” will include Kansas City Champion JC Thunder, as well as local wrestling stars The Marksman, “Smooth as Satin” David Cattin, Captain Shabam, Kyle King and more.
