When pondering wrestling, images of huge, burly men with bombastic vernacular and flamboyant costumes usually come to mind. On Saturday, all of the above will ensueexcept the huge part. In 1949, Sky Low Low won a thirty-man battle royal to become the first National Wrestling Alliance World Midget Champion. The sport has since had its ups and downs, but now the Micro Wrestling Federation is bringing a full blown night of Midget Wrestling and Rock N Roll to The Galaxy Theatre. With names like Meatball, Short Dawg and J-Mazing, the micro people will combine four matches of body slams and half nelsons with music by Franki Doll & The Broken Toys, Noise Attack and the Last Gang.
