The Twin Cities independent wrestling promotion that is F1rst Wrestling received a nice boost on national TV from one of its past guest wrestlers: Hollywood actor David Arquette.
While still best known for his appearances in big-screen movies such as the Scream franchise, Arquette has carved out a pretty successful career on the indie wrestling circuit in recent years.

The next WrestlePalooza will be held at First Avenue on Sunday, Mar. 27. Tickets can be bought here.
