They wield trash cans, sling chairs and toss two-by-fours. They have names like Nasty Boy and Tiny Terminator. They're midget wrestlers.
The Extreme Midget Wrestling Foundation is putting on The Baddest Little Show on Earth Saturday night at the Turkey Creek Bar & Grill in Alvarado. Like their taller, over-muscled, screaming counterparts, they're top-notch entertainers. It's not uncommon for six to 10 guys to be pummeling each other in the ring. A midget melee, if you will.
Check out this video of a midget wrestling match last May at Turkey Creek. No word if this match is affiliated with the E.M.W.F., but you get the idea.
The E.M.W.F. has been kicking ass and taking names since 2000. Besides putting on a good show, the group supports anti-bullying campaigns, too.
Alvarado may be off the beaten path for Dallasites (45 minutes south off U.S. 67), but think of it as a road trip. The show starts at 8 p.m. at Turkey Creek Bar & Grill, 8705 F.M. 3136. All ages are welcome until 10 p.m., when young'uns under 21 must go. Tickets are $15 at the door, $20 for ringside. For tickets call Turkey Creek at (817) 790-3131 or buy them online here.
