Music City Bowl participants invited to pro wrestling event

When Denzil Ware picked up a trash can and swung it at an opponent in Kentucky’s loss to Louisville, everyone wondered what could possibly make him think that’s okay. Using a foreign object in a football game, are you crazy?

Turns out, maybe he was just getting ready for the Music City Bowl, which has partnered with Global Force Wrestling for a pregame party. According to the Music City Bowl’s website, each participating team will be given 165 tickets to see the GFW event in Nashville the Wednesday night before the game.



The players from both teams are invited to attend an action-packed night of professional wrestling. Global Force Wrestling is an American professional wrestling promotion founded in 2014 by former TNA founder and WWF and WCW superstar Jeff Jarrett. Prior to the matches, players will participate in a meet and greet reception with our Wounded Warrior guests and Gold Star families.

Each team receives 165 tickets, with no additional tickets available.

As the website notes, Global Force Wrestling was founded by former WWF and WCW superstar Jeff Jarrett. The roster currently features some familiar names to wrestling fans, including “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Scott Steiner, Jim Cornette, Shelton Benjamin and Davey Boy Smith Jr.

With the Music City Bowl as the Cats’ most likely bowl destination, Mark Stoops’ team may have some pro ‘rasslin in its future.


Upon further inspection, Global Force Wrestling may no longer exist. There is some confusing drama between the company and Jeff Jarrett and Impact Wrestling, and it’s unclear if the Music City Bowl event is still on. The Music City Bowl website is still running with it, so maybe it’ll get worked out.
