Extreme Wrestling in Roanoke? Some local teens organized an outdoor wrestling match in a local park - and say they followed most of the rules in doing so. But City officials say one of the teens and his father secured a permit to hold the event in a city park but contend they never said it would be violent. The video we shot Sunday is graphic and may be difficult to watch.

The event was organized Sunday at Fallon park. City officials say if they'd been told the event would include "extreme wrestling moves" they would've had them secure insurance coverage in case something went wrong. The teens maintain it was all in fun and that the moves are scripted.

Local wrestling legend Jimmy Valiant who runs "Boogie's Wrestling Camp" near Shawsville believes it's dangerous.

Analysts say a recent agreement tentatively reached between Comair's parent company, Delta Airlines, and its pilots' union may not bode well for Comair pilots. One expert says the company may feel like it's given in to the major pilots and hold back when it comes to pilots further down the line. Comair normally serves 95 U-S cities, including Roanoke, Charlottesville and Richmond. Company and union negotiators are set to meet tomorrow through Friday. The meeting will be the first since March 25th.
