I normally don't watch Spike TV but I was flipping around on Wednesday night and came across Half Pint Brawlers...
I didn't know what to expect, but it was funny, disturbing, and dramatic all in one. The show starts off getting to meet this crew of "midget" wrestlers. (They call themselves midget the whole show.) But they are kicking off their tour, and all of the guy's are together with Puppet, the leader of the crew. During their first show there are 2 brothers who wrestled each other in a bar, (with no ring) right on the concrete floor! Gnarly.
During the match the one of the brothers jumps off a railing and sends his brother (Little Kato) through a table and immediately rips open a seven inch gash on the back of Kato's head. Blood everywhere, looked like the dude was going to die. But they rushed him to the hospital and stitched him up. What was crazy is the next night the dude wanted to wrestle! Don't want to ruin it, but the boss man has to decide if he's going to let his star wrestler wrestle the next night. Crazy stuff.
I have set my tivo for this show for the season. Best original show i've seen on TV in years. Do yourself a favor and check it out. Unless you are squeamish. Then you probably won't be able to handle it.
