Sabotage Wrestling’s return to Southern California is set to take place on August 5, 2017 in Imperial Beach. This will be the fourth show for the promotion and will be taking place at the Imperial Beach Sports Complex, which is also FCW’s regular location and home to the Battle U wrestling school.
While it is believed that this will be the first time a women’s wrestling focused show will be held in the San Diego area, San Diego was the location of an important moment in women’s wrestling. On December 30, 1985, America Morris, who was a sophomore at San Diego’s Clairemont High School pinned Madison High School’s Russell Cain during a wrestling match in the 107 pound weight class. With that pin Morris became the first female wrestler to pin a male wrestler at the varsity level.
The promotion explained to me that the reason they decided to hold their return to Southern California in the San Diego area is to “reach new fans who may not have been able to experience a Sabotage show yet, while being close enough so that their existing fanbase could still attend the show.”
When asked about Sabotage expanding into the San Diego area, Ruby Raze, who has been a part of every Sabotage show to date, stated “Sabotage wrestling is really helping expose new audiences to women’s wrestling. Not every fan has the ability to drive to the LA area to see a majority women’s promotion; this really is a great way to spread the brand as well as reach whole new pockets of people! San Diego best be ready, cause the ladies of Sabotage aint powder puff! We’re here to kick ass!”
Sabotage held its debut show on October 7, 2016 in Covina and had its second show, titled “Hey Ladies” on February 18, 2017 in Los Angeles. The promotion the announced it would be holding its third show, titled “She’s Crafty” on May 13th in Austin, Texas.
Ticket and lineup information for Sabotage’s August 5th show will be released at a later time. Tickets are available now for Sabotage’s May 13th show in Austin, Texas here. The Imperial Beach sports complex is located at 425 Imperial Beach Blvd. in Imperial Beach, CA.
