The Greatest Little PPV on Earth!

12019126_1247212388638324_50884786_oWomen have been a side show in professional wrestling for many years. There have always been exceptions, and in certain eras women were main event draws who could pack the house, but for the most part they were treated as eye candy, forced into demeaning hair-pulling matches and worse.

Everyone laughed – and headed for the concession stand.

Last Wednesday the Internet Wrestling Community was set on fire when William Regal announced the Ironwoman match for the next NXT Takeover special featuring Bayley and Sasha Banks. The hard work put in by the Four Horsewomen of NXT has earned them the respect they deserve.

No one is laughing now.

This week an independent wrestling federation is hoping to make a big step forward for another marginalized form of wrestling. You can call them micro-athletes. You can call them midgets. (Yes, in the world of professional wrestling world, the non-PC term is still accepted and preferred.) They are also legitimate professional wrestlers, and on Wednesday they will be taping the first ever all midget pay-per-view event.

Now in its eighth year, Micro Championship Wrestling has been entertaining fans all over the world. The men and women of MCW truly embrace the term “sports entertainment,” and when they hit the ring, they promise and deliver a good show and a good time.

You may not have heard of heard of MCW, or even be aware there are multiple all-midget promotions now in business, but MCW has been featured on Hulk Hogan’s Micro Championship Wrestling, Full Throttle Saloon, and other reality programs. They wrestle all over the country and in eight years have a 100% re-booking rate. In other words, when Micro Championship Wrestling comes to a town, they always get asked back!

The MCW wrestlers also do an incredible amount of charity work, partnering with organizations like Kym’s Kids and Wounded Warrior to raise money for worthy causes.

The men and women of MCW know that what they do is a joke to many. They’re also keenly aware that it’s not politically correct in the eyes of some. But the men and women of MCW got into this business because for the same reason every man and woman in the WWE did: they love wrestling, and they wouldn’t have it any other way. MCW is carrying on a proud legacy, following a trail blazed by oft-forgotten legends like Little Beaver, the Haiti Kid, Sky Low Low, and Lord Littlebrook. MCW goes for the laughs, but they also know how to create real drama and tears. They are professional wrestlers, and they are proud ambassadors of a truly American sport that continues to entertain millions.

Tickets are still available for the live taping at Independence Bar in Orlando, Florida Wednesday night. You can also catch the show on

CZW Anniversary Show Saturday night!

I cannot tell you how badly I want to see this.

Specifically, one match.

Jake and Dave Crist, aka Ohio Is 4 Killers (OI4K) are amazing. They are the best tag team you’ve never heard of. They are aerial daredevils and and incredibly creative performers. And oh yeah, those CZW tag belts? That’s not the only tag team gold they currently hold. Not even close.

As for the Young Bucks… well, if you’re not an indy fan, I can forgive you’re not having heard of them. They are the masters of the Super Kick. They are two guys, brothers, making a darn good living in professional wrestling with no help whatsoever from Stamford, CT, thank you.

This match will be worth the price of the iPPV alone.

No, this is not a paid endorsement. This is me telling you that if you want to see some really great tag team action, you need to watch this match.

Click on the poster or go to to pre-order the show. Or, if you’re lucky enough to be in the Philly area, get to the ECW arena Saturday night.
