The always entertaining Frank Lipoli of the Virginia Challenge joins the show to talk about the upcoming Virginia Challenge Holiday Duals at the Virginia Beach Sports Center in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Frank’s background in wrestling goes back over 60 years and he’s a 2001 inductee into the Virginia Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and a recent inductee into the Hampton Roads Sports Hall of Fame.

Frank talks about the origins of the Virginia Challenge, his background with the sport, what “Lipoli Logic” is and how he’s come up with events over the years and brought them to the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. 

We talk a lot of old school stuff here and I do what I can to keep Frank on track, but that’s easier said than done. 

Check out the GearUP campaign I’ve joined on with in conjunction with Beat The Streets National. Check out how you can help outfit kids by going to Every $50 donated outfits a needy wrestler with $200 worth of gear. Let’s make sure we don’t lose the next Burroughs, Taylor, Maroulis, Gray or Gardner because they can’t afford to get on the mat. This is a partnership between Beat The Streets National, Asics, Gear 2 Compete and Resilite, which has been a longtime supporter of this program and this network.
