The Maniac has been here and there lately, teasing a sports entertainment return to Crawfordsville, and August 24, at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds, 400 Park Avenue, the wait is over. Sandwiched between comedy performances in June at The Barefoot Burger and Francis & Mount right here in town, the wrestler ended his in-ring drought by appearing at Mad Hatter Wrestling’s debut event in Monticello. Following an unfortunate loss involving a foreign object, Delphi’s taunts on a now-viral Facebook video broadcast of ‘Call It a Hunch’ lead to NGW signing The Maniac vs. Delphi for their Saturday show.

The show will also include a singles match between Parker Davis and Drex Odell as well as a tag team bout between Jeremy Hadley & Jamie Crisis vs. the returning Jay Maddix & Nate Mathews. For one night only, the 6’9” Buck Boulder will be with the company. Also scheduled to be in action are Jason Levi, TK Zero, Bentley Alexander Dawson, Chris Gordon, Buck Sexton, and tag champs High Society.

Doors will open at 5:30 PM with main show bell time at 6:30. Tickets are $12 for all front row seats. For the remainder , it’s $10 general admission with children under 5 always free. New Generation Wrestling is a family-friendly event.
