Bernie Sanders Attends Pro Wrestling Event Over The Weekend

Bernie Sanders

A user on the subreddit r/squaredcircle posted about US Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders stopping by an indy show put on by 3XWrestling over the weekend. The user said:

My name is Austin Savanh, a professional wrestler from Central Iowa.

Bernie Sanders came through Iowa's Latino Heritage Festival on Saturday and stopped to enjoy some Lucha Libre presented by 3XWrestling.

At one point, a pair of young women asked to take a photo, and Mr. Sanders politely asked them to wait until the end of the match. Super nice guy. Couldn't have been more respectful of our crazy little subculture.

He also posted a video of Bernie in the crowd, as well as the Presidential hopeful putting a fan in a headlock. The Instagram posts can be seen here and here.
