The first-ever episode of WCW Nitro launched back in 1995, and took place in the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The venue was incredibly unique, but wrestling has yet to return to the Hall in the 27 years since that episode of Nitro, but that’s all set to change in September.
F1RST Wrestling are set to host their aptly named ‘Saturday Night Nitro’ event at the legendary arena on September 10, 2022.
F1RST Wrestling issued the following:
Mall of America® Hosts Historic F1RST Wrestling Event
Saturday Night Nitro will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2022.
F1RST Wrestling, a professional wrestling company based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, reached a milestone Sunday, hosting the 20th edition of their marquee event WRESTLEPALOOZA, emanating from the world-famous First Avenue Nightclub. During the event, F1RST Wrestling’s Arik Cannon announced professional wrestling will return to Mall of America® for the first time in over 27 years.
