National sensation “The Progressive Liberal” hosting charitable wrestling event Friday


Real estate agent Daniel Harnsberger, better known around the country as “The Progressive Liberal” pro wrestler, is bringing the sport he twilights in his off-time to his hometown this Friday night.

Harnsberger has risen from the shadows of the Appalachian pro-wrestling circuit to national relevance through his character in the ring, a politically charged wrestler who stands for his beliefs and lets his actions do the talking as his name entails. He’s been featured on major networks HBO, CBS, CNN, BBC and Comedy Central over the last year and a half.

He and five other wrestlers, most with ties the Richmond-area, will go toe-to-toe at the Hofheimer Building in Scott’s Addition. All ticket sales for the event go towards donating funds to Harnsberger’s chosen charity the Children’s Miracle Network. 

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Friday night.
