Pro Wrestling Stars Highlight Grand Opening
(Greensboro, GA) – Pro wrestling superstar X Pac and Hall of Fame manager Jimmy Hart, plus one-legged wrestler/shot putter The Freak, will highlight the Grand Opening of the new Langdon Athletics location in Greensboro on Saturday, April 23 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
The three will mingle with fans, sign autographs and their presence will add to the festivities surrounding Langdon Athletics’ Grand Opening of its new location.
Langdon Athletics is one of the leading retail outlets for sports equipment and merchandise; so it’s only fit to have Hart, X-Pac and the Freak -who are no strangers to the world of sports – join their grand opening festivities.
In addition to the grand opening The Freak managed to secure a free prosthetic leg for the 9 year old Georgia girl who lost her leg; courtesy of Mark Logue CPO of Clearwater Brace and Limb. Anaiah Rucker saved her 5 year old sister from being hit by a car and lost a leg and kidney in the process.
Rucker was featured on the TODAY show for her bravery. She will be presented with the leg and a hero’s reception at the grand opening. To make it sweeter for Rucker, 10% of all profits taken in during the grand opening will be donated to Her.
