“Legends of the Aud” set to celebrate 20th anniversary

The last sporting event in the Buffalo Auditorium is being celebrated along with Ilio DiPaolo's contributions to the city.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Saturday night at Riverworks generations of wrestlers and wrestling fans will come together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the “Legends of the Aud.”

The event, set to take place on Saturday night, will honor Buffalo icon Ilio DiPaolo.

The original event featured professional wrestling stars of the era, such as Sting, Ric Flair and “Macho Man” Randy Savage, in attendance. This year the event will feature well-known wrestlers of today, such as “Big Time” Bill Collier and “The Franchise” Shane Douglas.

In addition, the former leader of the now-defunct World Championship Wrestling Eric Bischoff, Jimmy Hart and other legends will appear.

Proceeds from the event will again champion the Buffalo Children’s Hospital and the Ilio DiPaolo Scholarship Fund. Tickets are slated to sell for $40 in the VIP section, and $25 or $20 in general admission.
