Patrick Brady makes pro wrestling appearance
Art of War Cage Fighting (AOW) promoter Mike Bickings was in attendance last night at the World Famous Monster Factor Pro Wrestling Academy’s house show in Paulsboro, New Jersey. Monster Factory is known as the most successful pro wrestling training academy in the world, having helped launch the careers of many famed athletes and entertainers in the industry.
Bickings, a lifelong friend of Danny Cage (owner of Monster Factor), regularly attend’s the academy’s events and was able earn himself a little promotion for the upcoming mixed martial arts double header that AOW will hold on April 1 and 2.
AOW 22 headliner Patrick Brady (1-0 pro MMA) joined Bickings at last night’s show and even found himself joining in on the action.
After being called out for partaking in some “lame brain MMA nonsense,” Brady entered the squared circle and took care of business. WATCH ABOVE.
Brady will meet Cesar Gutierrez in the main event of AOW 22, part of the promotion’s All-Star weekend taking place at Live! Casino & Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is returning to the cage following a successful pro debut at AOW 21 in December. Brady, a former amateur pro heavyweight champion for AOW, went 4-1-1 before making the leap to the professional side of the combat sport. At 38-years-old, Brady hopes to one day fulfill his dream of becoming one of the oldest fighters to ever sign with the UFC.
The AOW 22 and 23 cards will be the promotion’s first venture with the new casino, a historic night for all parties involved.
