F1rst: Wrestlepalooza Minneapolis, MN 1/12/2013

On a really cold Saturday night in Minneapolis, MN pro wrestling returned to my favorite venue, First Avenue. F1rst Wrestling returned as they presented Wrestle Palooza, a mix of pro wrestling, punk rock and burlesque. What a combination that is!
IMG_6620The first match of the night was a six man tag match. Wildcat & Zero Gravity ( Brett Gakiya & CJ Esparza )defeated “6% Body Fat” Rob James, Mr. Kincaid & Renny D.
IMG_6770Next out in the ring was Queenie Von Curves for some burlesque action.
IMG_6927Shawn Daivari pinned Colin Cambridge in the second match of the night. This was my first time seeing Cambridge, who wrestles out of the Chicago area. As Daivari was celebrating his win his younger brother Arya came out and gave him a super kick.
IMG_7007Punk band Masked Intruder came out and played a few songs.
IMG_7085The Misfits (John Johnson & Aaron Corbin) defeated The North Star Express ( Darin Corbin & Ryan Cruz) when Aaron pinned Darin. I think the last time Corbin & Cruz teamed together was at the last F1rst wrestling event back in July 2011.
IMG_7263After an intermission the action in the ring continued with more burlesque from Musette “The Mistress of Mischief”.
IMG_7341Masked Intruder came out to play a few more songs.Too bad they were rudely interrupted by Arya Daivari. That guy is suck a jerk. Daivari said he was looking for a fight so M.I. Blue brought out his pal Arik Cannon to take on Daivari.
IMG_7427Arik Cannon defeated Arya Daivari in an anarky rules match. Cannon did get a little help from M.I. Green and Officer Bradford. (It’s come to my attention that Daivari now uses his real first name which is spelled “Ariya”. But here on his blog I’m still going to spell it with out the “I” for consistency
IMG_7671Next up was more burlesque. This time it was Queenie Von Curves/Hogan dancing to “Real American”. This was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen at a pro wrestling event.
IMG_7987In the main event El Chivas Blanco defeated “Playboy” Pete Huge. This is a must see match as is this whole event. So go buy the DVD when it comes out at Smart Mark Video.
