Building Beat the Streets
Beat the Streets is doing a virtual telethon. Usually, it is a charity event with fans but this time, due to the times we are in, the Beat the Streets team is forced to get creative on fund raising. There will be no fans and the location is undisclosed. Safety is the priority for the wrestlers on the card.
Beat the Streets’ goal is to aim and develop human and athletic potential of the urban youth and strengthen the culture of New York City wrestling according to their website.
