Saxlund is part-owner in a NDSU-themed bar and grill called Herd & Horns, which rolls out the green and gold carpet for wrestling fans this coming week. Saxlund talks about the impact of the tournament on the business, the impact of the other tournament that’s known around Fargo, the Rumble on the Red, before diving into his backstory on what pushed him to compete and battle at NDSU after winning a state title in 1A back in 1996.
