Professional Wrestling is Coming to Muzzy Field

Bristol Blues & Northeast Wrestling Team Up to Bring
Professional Wrestling to Muzzy Field this Summer!


The snow has melted, the weather is warming, and that can only mean one thing! The Bristol Blues season is right around the corner! And while the entire Blues organization is eager to kickoff another exciting year with Opening Day on June 1st, we also promised to deliver an expanded ‘Blues Entertainment Experience’ to Muzzy Field.

Behind that promise was a goal to not only add to game day offerings, but to expand the total entertainment offerings at Muzzy Field. With that, the Blues are thrilled to announce an agreement with Northeast Wrestling, the leading independent wrestling promotion in North America, to bring Northeast Wrestling’s “Wrestling Under the Stars Tour” to Bristol’s historic Muzzy Field Friday, July 28. Featuring top superstars from NEW and around the world, this year’s Wrestling Under the Stars Tour encompasses 9 shows in 6 states and this represents the ?rst time Wrestling Under the Stars has come to Connecticut.
NEW owner Michael Lombardi is excited to bring Northeast Wrestling to Bristol for the ?rst time for this historic stadium show at Muzzy Field.

“We can’t wait to tear the house down,” said Lombardi. “Fans are very excited Wrestlings Under the Stars is coming to Connecticut for the ?rst time, and we’re excited to ?nally bring pro wrestling back to Muzzy Field, and promise to deliver a memorable experience for the fans.”

July 28th’s Northeast Wrestling extravaganza is also scheduled to have meet and greet sessions for fans to meet and have photos taken with wrestling superstars starting at 4:30 pm up to the show’s bell time at 8 pm. Meet & greet will be ?rst come ?rst serve. Fees Apply.

“This is one of our distinguishing elements,” said Lombardi. “The meet and greet gives the fans an opportunity to get up close and personal with the superstars. The stars will be available for autographs, photos or even just to shake their hands. Northeast Wrestling produces events that are unparalleled in fan interaction, and is great entertainment suitable for the entire family.”

The ?rst superstars announced on the card so far are former WWE superstar, current global sensation and Northeast Wrestling Champion Cody Rhodes, as well as former WWE superstar Rey Mysterio Jr. (pictured above).

Tickets for the July 28th Wrestling Under the Stars show go on sale Friday, April 14 at 11 am, starting as low as $20, and will be available at northeastwrestling.com, bristolbluesstore.com, and in-person at the Bristol Blues retail store at 351 North Main Street in Bristol (check website for hours).

“Northeast Wresting is no doubt the leading non-WWE promotion going today,” said Mark Walerysiak Jr, Bristol Blues development liaison. “I’ve seen many of their productions and they are always top notch, family fun, with stars from the past, present, and future, that makes for an incredibly fun, unpredictable evening that has people buzzing long after they leave the show. We can’t wait for NEW to rock Muzzy Field and entertain the fans.”
