“If you’ve never experienced a tournament on an Aircraft Carrier, you are in for the event of a lifetime,” state RMN President Adam Gutierrez. “D-Day on the Midway is scheduled before the school year begins … start your season here! It’s hosted in San Diego, a site that is ranked in the top three locations for most comfortable and entertaining cities in the country in the summer. Our great hotel partners that will make your stay affordable and unforgettable. We expect a sell-out, so don’t wait too long to register for this one!”

When you participate in an RMN Event, you are receiving the finest awards and gear, experiencing outstanding organization, taking part in an event which begins and ends as scheduled, and partaking in the out-of-this world opening ceremonies and pageantry. In all, we consider our events to be a community of wrestling which cares deeply about providing you with the Best of the Best.

During this great time of year, when you are not wrestling, explore this great area. Take in a whale watch or explore the nationally acclaimed San Diego Zoo. Awards for this tournament feature custom-made USS Midway commemorative 4-inch medals for 1st – 6th place, special RMN belts for Outstanding Wrestlers, and a commemorative team banner for dual teams placing 1st – 4th.
