Tom, his brother Harry, and his friend, Ben, love to watch the wrestling on television. They know all the moves and all the wrestlers – like Clawhammer and Beefsteak Billy. Now Wrestlefest is coming to town. Tom’s dad has promised to get tickets on his way home from work.
But all the tickets are gone – Wrestlefest is sold out! To make things worse, the school bully, Ricky Jones, bought the last tickets and he keeps taunting Tom and Ben. Ricky Jones – who thinks wrestling is dumb and all wrestlers are wusses! Will they get to see their heroes in action? Will Ricky Jones get what he deserves?
