As pro wrestling’s biggest event, WrestleMania, descends upon Atlanta this week, some of the industry’s tiniest grapplers were at Wild Bill’s last Tuesday, March 22 as Micro Championship Wrestling was there to film an episode of its upcoming TruTV series debuting this summer. Though competitors such as Blixx, Justice, Short Sleeve Sampson and the lucahdor-masked Demo (billed at 3 feet 5 inches and 75 pounds) are clearly outsized by the guys that will be doing battle this weekend, MCW also had one of the biggest wrestling stars of all time, Hulk Hogan, providing commentary during the matches. Joining Hogan were Nasty Boy Knobbs and MCW’s Johnny G (whose chainsaw-like voice was difficult to decipher), with wrestling legend Pat Tanaka (who looked a bit cumbersome as a regular-sized guy in a micro-sized ring) acting as referee.

Before the cameras began rolling, Eric Bischoff (the former World Championship Wrestling president who is no stranger to Atlanta wrestling fans) thanked the audience for being there, followed by an announcement that Hogan himself was buying a round of beer for everyone in attendance. While drinking the beer Hogan bought me, I watched the four matches, which included the 292-pound Meatball (billed as the world’s biggest midget) laying waste to a midget pimp known as Huggie Cub. The ensuing insanity included midgets hitting each other with bar stools and cookie sheets, the incessantly exposed butt crack of a female competitor and Hogan, who did very little actual commentating, sending text messages and looking a little out of it.

After winning the battle royale main event, Meatball celebrated by inviting two female volunteers from the audience into the ring for his stinkface, which basically means they sat in opposite corners of the ring as Meatball pulled his pants down and rubbed his lumpy derriere in their faces. Was it entertaining? Sure. But those girls were pretty cute and I can only hope they were planted in the audience and on MCW’s payroll.
