Ever desperate to goose ticket sales, the Miami Marlins hosted a "Legends of Wrestling" night on Saturday which gathered some of the most forgotten talent in professional wrestling history. The event saw former WCW and WWE champion Bill Goldberg throw out the first pitch, as well as his first "spear" in a few years, and saw some fixed brawling outside the stadium.
Here's Goldberg pulling out his famous "Spear" moved against a Rockies fan after throwing out his first pitch.
And here's The Nasty Boys taking on a couple of jobbers outside the stadium.
And here's a grey-haired Bret Hart talking about his best memories of Florida and our "beautiful new stadium."
The Marlins, in case you were wondering, went on to win 3-0.
