Wrestlicious will be holding it’s first public television taping in Minnesota on May 28th with a roster including former TNA Knockout, Sojo Bolt debuting as CoCo Montego. The taping marks the first time Wrestlicious’ flagship series, TakeDown will be filmed in front of a live audience of wrestling fans. The episodes currently airing were taped in 2008 with what I’m assuming was a selected crowd who were paid for attending. Tickets to the show are being sold for $10.
