Latin Heartthrob Gino will wrestle in Victoria for the heavyweight title.

Three titles will be on the line at the Live Pro Wrestling Summer Showdown at the Victoria Community Center Annex on Sunday.

Doors will open at 2 p.m. for a meet-and-greet with the wrestlers, and the bell will ring at 3 p.m. to spring six matches into action.

“This is fun for the whole family,” said Carlos Guerra, who co-owns Victoria’s 2G Promotions with Mark Gonzalez. “Parents can bring their kids because we keep it clean, and the kids always leave happy.”

Latin Heartthrob Gino is wrestling T-Ray for the heavyweight title, and Kiki Vibez is squaring off against Hyan for the women’s title. The cruiserweight title is up for grabs in a match between Poder Nocturno and Skyline.

From 2 to 3 p.m., those in attendance can visit and take selfies with the wrestlers and get 8-by-10 photographs with them. They also can shop for wrestling memorabilia and line up for concessions including hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, sodas, bottled water and other refreshments.

Guerra said the main difference between their hometown production and World Wrestling Entertainment is more interaction with the wrestlers.

2G Promotions brings in wrestlers from Houston, San Antonio and Corpus Christi, and many of them are the wrestling stars of the future, Guerra said.

“You never know who you’re going to meet,” he said. “I met Daniel Bryan in 2001 when I was in radio promotions, and now he’s a main event wrestler with the WWE.”

Children ages 10 and under enter free with one paid adult. Ringside tickets are $15 each and general admission tickets are $10 each.

“I love seeing the kids’ faces and their reactions,” Guerra said. “They have a good time at every show.”
