7:15 p.m., Verizon Arena, $15-$60.

Without question, ours always has been a prime market for the pro wrestling scene. Old-school bouts at Fisher's Armory in North Little Rock and Barton Coliseum were legendary, and wrestlers solely relied upon fists and foreign objects taped to the wrist, or some bad street Angel Dust blown into an opponent's faces to get the three-count. The wrecking crews of yesteryears cracked skulls with no fanfare, props, pyros, PA banter from backstage or soap opera storylines, and the only female drama involved the Fabulous Moolah. If extra weaponry was required, some front-row fanatic had to sacrifice his or her chair until business was complete. Today's is an entirely different bag, variations on themes, but big names headed this way include John Cena, DX, Triple H, the Miz, Randy Orton, the Big Show and tag-teamers Ted DiBiase Jr. and Cody Rhodes, both carrying on the legacy of their wrestler fathers.
