The Miami Marlins baseball team, with Tom ‘Too Tough Dino’ Koehler and ‘The Mexicutioner’ AJ Ramos, is hosting Legends of Wrestling Night, benefiting Up2Us Sports, on Friday, July 31 as the Marlins face the San Diego Padres at Marlins Park.
Koehler, Ramos and fans will look forward to meeting WWE Hall of Famers Mick Foley and Kevin Nash along with The Nasty Boys (Knobbs and Sags), Bushwhacker Luke, JoJo and Brodus Clay/Tyrus.
Ramos, the Marlins closer, sports a great pro wrestling style nickname, and he was a big pro wrestling fan growing up.

Never miss a local story.
This won’t be Koehler and Ramos’s first wrestling rodeo, so to speak, with the Nasty Boys. Two years ago, the Marlins hosted a wrestling night, and the two pitchers/wrestling fans happily got involved in the main event, assisting the Nasty Boys and Jimmy Hart.
Here is a link to a story with photos and video links from that memorable occasion in 2013.
LoW meet-n-greet and more
On Friday, July 31, there will be a meet-n-greet with the wrestlers, and the best dressed wrestling fan will win an official Marlins Championship Wrestling Belt.

About the LoW
Entertainment mogul Louis ‘Uncle Louie’ Gregory, the president of Legends of Wrestling, will bring The LoW experience to Miami during the Miami Marlins game on Friday, July 31, and it features big names in pro wrestling, headlined by Mick Foley (aka Cactus Jack/Mankind/Dude Love) and Big Sexy Kevin Nash.
Uncle Louie told pro wrestling writer Scott Fishman: “The July 31 show at Miami’s Marlins Park is great because Miami is where I call home. This LoW experience will feature fan interactions with autographs and photo opportunities and who knows; a Legend of Wrestling throwing the first pitch? A Big Foot from Big Sexy to a Mascot? I will also be presenting a very special championship belt custom made by LoW’s own Rey Rey to the Marlins’ José Fernandez because July 31 happens to be his birthday. I have a lot planned for Miami, but you’ll have to visit the 305 and come out to Marlins Park to see what happens for that one.”
