PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - Get ready to rumble on Friday night at Tradition Field.

While the St. Lucie Mets and Jupiter Hammerheads battle it out on the field, a pair of WWE NXT wrestling superstars will be in the house to entertain fans in the stands.

WWE NXT champion Adrian Neville and fellow NXT wrestler Corey Graves will be on hand Friday throwing out the first pitch, signing autographs, taking pictures and giving away prizes.

Neville and Graves are on the Treasure Coast promoting the WWE NXT event at Havert L. Fenn Center in Fort Pierce on Saturday night.

Graves, known for his vicious and attacking style, is the self-proclaimed "Savior of Misbehavior."
