And this year’s event will feature special guest appearances by Hall of Fame professional wrestler and sixteen time world champion “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair and Grammy Award winning artist Coolio, who will perform a set of his hit songs.

This is the 25th annual competitive chicken wing eating event for WIP. Wing Bowl 25 will be broadcast live on 94WIP, and streamed at Wingbowl25.com as well as through the Radio.com app on a variety of mobile devices.

WIP Morning Show co-host Al Morganti, who co-founded Wing Bowl 25 years ago with host Angelo Cataldi said, “It’s amazing that Wing Bowl is still around 25 years later and has become this big. We have a duty to make this one the biggest and the best, so that’s what we’ll do.”

With all former champions barred from this year’s contest, Wing Bowl 25 guarantees to crown a new winner. Eaters will compete for a bunch of prizes including the grand prize of a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, a Custom Wing Bowl 25 Championship Ring and $10,000 in cash. The Wingette of the Year walks away with $5,000 cash.

Also new for this year is the Wing Bowl “Legends” Division where up to 10 former participants that have not won the contest but made significant contributions to the event will get the opportunity to eat for “Wing Bowl Immortality”. The winner of the Legends Division wins a Harley-Davidson FLSTF Softail Fat Boy Motorcycle.
