JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) - A special ribbon cutting ceremony was held for the new Xcite Wrestling Xhibition Hall in Johnson City Saturday, also known as 'The X'.
The new 6,000 square-foot entertainment center is located inside the Oakdale Mall.
Prior to the wrestling matches scheduled for Saturday, Johnson City Mayor Greg Deemie hopped in the ring to help cut a ribbon and present a plaque to the owner.
Xcite Wrestling owner Jonathan Musok says the new venue is a huge plus for the Johnson City community.
"The fact is the first show was wonderful. This show people are still piling in. It's amazing to us how the community is coming around. They want something new. They want entertainment and that is what this is," said Musok.
Musok says the wrestling shows are scheduled for every first Saturday of the month. General admission tickets start at $15 while front row seats are $30 each.
Saturday's ceremony also served as the start of 'The X's' Toys for Tots drive. Anyone who brings a new, unwrapped toy to the venue can receive discounts on Xcite Wrestling Merchandise.
