Founded in 2005, 3XWrestling, a Des Moines-based organization, has performed in front of thousands of fans across Iowa and been featured on KCWI TV, Des Moines Radio Group stations, Iowa Public Radio and in publications including the Des Moines Register, Juice, Cityview and Pro Wrestling Illustrated. 3XW events are held each month in Des Moines.
3XWrestling and its performers are also heavily involved with charity work. At the Clobberpalooza Classic IV event in September 2010, 3XW helped raise money for Shoes That Fit by donating a portion of ticket sales to the charity organization. 3XW also regularly gives out complimentary tickets for events to area charities.
In February 2009, one-legged wrestling star Zach Gowen competed in 3XW and helped raise over $10,000 to help the family of a young man whose leg was amputated due to his battle with cancer. All proceeds from that event we’re given to the family to offset medical costs, with every wrestler performing on a volunteer basis.
