On June 7, the New York Mets will make way at Citi Field for wrestling greats at the first "Legends of Wrestling" event headlined by Bret "The Hitman" Hart, "Nature Boy" Ric Flair and Bill Goldberg.

The format is part-festival with Q&A sessions, photo ops, games and matches featuring independent wrestlers, followed by the main event with up to six matches in a ring located on second base. Tickets range from $25 to $55.
Wrestlers Rob Van Dam, Lita, The Nasty Boys and Scott Steiner are also slated to appear and/or compete.
With due respect to Hart and Flair — the latter of whom received a ton of love this past year owing to his popularity in the Indianapolis Colts locker room — this event had me at "Bill Goldberg." He was a personal favorite. So naturally I’ll leave you with this, a 10-minute compilation of Goldberg’s spears.
