The Beat Down in Brownstown was Friday, November 3rd at the Brownstown high school. Two School Publication students interviewed the head of the Athletic Department, Vincent Rohr. When Mr. Rohr was asked how he found out about the event he said the former principal, now superintendent, Mr. Mike Shackleford started the event two years ago. The head of the organization is Lynn Kamadulski, who is also one of the wrestlers known as Leone Mephisto. The organization originates from the St. Louis Metro East area. The Brownstown Athletic Department hosted the event and all the proceeds went to them. The first event the Athletic Department put on back in 2015 they made 500 dollars and in 2016 they made 700 dollars profit by hosting the event.

When asked why the Athletic Department  keeps scheduling this event, Mr. Rohr exclaimed, “It’s a new and exciting event in town and it has brought in good revenue to the athletic department.” There was a tag team match this year which has never been done before at the Beat Down in Brownstown.
