It was previously reported that F1RST Wrestling, a pro wrestling promotion in Minneapolis, Minnesota, made a huge announcement that they will be holding an event called “Saturday Night Nitro” at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota on Saturday, September 10th.

This is the first time in 27 years that a pro wrestling event will be held inside The Mall Of America and this comes after WCW first launched “WCW Monday Nitro” on Monday nights on TNT, which soon kicked off the Monday Night Wars between WCW and WWE and since then, there hasn't been a pro wrestling event inside the Mall of America.

An update was recently provided by F1RST Wrestling that the promotion reached a milestone last Sunday by hosting the 20th edition of their marquee event known as WrestlePalooza, which emanated inside the world-famous First Avenue Nightclub and it was during last Sunday's event that F1RST Wrestling’s Arik Cannon announced professional wrestling will return to the Mall of America for the first time in over 27 years.

It was also mentioned on the update that F1RST Wrestling will build a wrestling ring in the center of Huntington Bank Rotunda and tickets for the show will go on sale tomorrow, June 24th at 10AM.
