Former wrestling stars The Patriot and Bull James, along with Rutherford’s own Chris "Crowbar" Ford and Jarret “Bright Lights Foster” Gaeta, will be among the combatants at this coming weekend's “Rescue Mania 2: Big Blue Rescue."
Fans young and old can meet their heroes -- including late additions Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Supercrazy -- before the Sept. 23 extravaganza at Felician University.
The family-friendly event is staged by the Rutherford Fire Department’s Engine 2 and Rescue 5, Rutherford Junior Football / Cheering and the school. BCB Bank is sponsoring it.
It all begins with the pre-show meet-and-greet in the cafeteria under the Felician gymnasium at 12:30 p.m. Competition begins at 2 p.m. and runs through 4:30 p.m.
Although $20 tickets could be available at the door, last year’s first-ever “Rescue Mania” sold out.
