Rep. Fleagle takes to mat

October 08, 2006

BLUE RIDGE SUMMIT, Pa. - As state Rep. Pat Fleagle waited for his turn to wrestle Saturday night at the Summit Wrestling Association in Blue Ridge Summit, he talked casually with the crowd.

"This is all real, you know," Fleagle said sarcastically.

Fleagle adopted the name "The Rippin' Rep" for the event, which is raising money to purchase gifts for local children this holiday season.

Tag teaming with World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Famer Nikolai Volkoff, Fleagle got little practice before the match, and said he just wanted to "get out with his head intact."

Fleagle wrestled against Spencer Christian and Leslie Leatherman. As of 10 p.m., Fleagle's match had yet to begin.
