Body slams, broken chairs, feuds and fights both inside and outside the ring — The Main Event had it all as the Ludington Area Center for the Arts (LACA) hosted its first ever pro wrestling contest Saturday night.

LACA collaborated with the local Hook and Catch Wrestling Club to bring wrestlers from the Grand Rapids-based Independence Pro Wrestling organization to the art center for the event.

“It was terrific, and it was pretty funny at times — but that’s wrestling. It brought a lot of new people into the art center.”
