Thanks to Alex Porta for spotting a flyer on a telephone pool because we ended up spending Friday night at a bingo hall in Brooklyn watching a sold-out “professional” wrestling match. The event was sponsored by Boy Scout Troop #996 and sold hamburgers for $1.50. The air was heavy with greasy smoke, tension and jubliation.
Lucifer Darkside was a vicious winner of one of the first matches.
Lucious Lance pummels his opponent. Because of Lance’s drag queen outfit, the crowd began chanting, “YOU – ARE – GAY!”
The fans getting anxious.
Down for the count.
Timothy Plasma took a beating by Creeper.
Southerner Ron Price was an instant villian wearing a noose like a necktie and a Confederate flag T-shirt.
Tony Blaze, the Puerto Rican favorite, gets locked in a hold by the Southerner.
Boricua Tony Blaze prevails to the excitement of the crowd.
She wasn’t a fan of Ron Prices confederate antics.
The winner of a previous match signs autographs.
AC Smooth and Grindal left their marks.
The final match was between Tiberias and the favorite, a 425 pounder called MadDog. They fought in a steel cage.
Tiberias’s flying antics were not match for MadDog’s size.
MadDog took on two more rogue opponents after defeating Tiberias and still reigned victorious.
And the crowd went wild.
