This past weekend NAU Kick Ax Wrestling Team held an event at Mother Road Brewing Co, to kick off homecoming week. Locals got to watch the team smash each other in the ring.

Micheal Innerbichler, President of NAU Kick Ax Wrestling puts to rest that wrestling is not all fake. He described wrestling as more scripted than fake. The physical component of the sport, he says, is real.

Play-by-play announcer David Ahumada says some members of the team rely on their size to dominate the ring. The others, he says, rely on quickness and athleticism. Ahumada hopes more people will notice the sport and find enjoyment in the events.

Innerbichler says participating in wrestling is something he has wanted to do since he was a child. He has been wrestling for two years, and says it is a dream come true. One of the best aspects of his participation in wrestling, he says, is the joy of having young fans chant his name and look up to him as a hero.
