Lucha Rules 3 at La Jamaica Hall 6pm $15

Independent pro wrestling returns to Stockton with Pro Wrestling Bushido’s Lucha Rules 3 event. PWB champion Timothy Thatcher will defend the title against former WWE wrestling Fit Finlay in the main event. Chavo Guerrero Jr was scheduled to appear but had to back out due to a scheduling conflict as is wont to happen in indy wrestling. Former Ring Of Honor wrestler Colt Cabana will be on hand as will recent ROH signee TJ Perkins. I’ve been to the previous two Lucha Rules events and they’re really fun and family friendly. It’s a much different atmosphere than WWE events since the venue is considerably smaller, allowing for more interaction between the crowd and the performers.
