SPIKE TV GIVES LITTLE PERSON WRESTLING A NEW NAME WHEN
"HALF PINT BRAWLERS" PREMIERES JUNE 2 AT 11 PM, ET/PT
Six-Episode Unscripted Original Series Follows The Wild Antics Of
Infamous Little Person Wrestling Troupe
New York, NY, May XX, 2010 – Spike TV explores the outrageous world of little person wrestling with "Half Pint Brawlers," a new unscripted half-hour, six-episode series premiering Wednesday, June 2 at 11:00 PM, ET/PT. This original series chronicles the often-absurd yet astonishing adventures of one of the most extraordinary performance wrestling groups in the country who will do just about anything inside and outside of the ring.
A combination of "Jackass" and "Little People, Big World," the series will be seen through the eyes of these extreme little people, "The Brawlers." These self-proclaimed hardcore little person wrestlers, led by gregarious owner Puppet "The Psycho Dwarf," entertain crowds in venues all across the U.S. with their unique brand of wrestling prowess. Along the way, Puppet deals with issues surrounding little person wrestling events while, at the same time, keeping his rambunctious wrestlers in line. The series follows their actions inside the ring, but also their wild lifestyles outside the ring, filled with chaotic parties and over-zealous groupies.
The "Half Pint Brawlers" consist of Puppet, the leader and founder of the group; Bobby, the ladies man; Kato, Bobby’s brother and veteran wrestler; Mad Mexx, the Immigration Sensation and hard core wrestler; Turtle, the rookie of the group paying his dues to become a Brawler; Teo, the smallest and most athletic member; and Spyder, the regular-size announcer for the group.
In the premiere episode, "The Brawlers" start off the wrestling season with two shows in Kansas City, MO and Wichita, KS. They keep busy by hazing Turtle, the group’s newest member, and push him to see just how far he’s willing to go to become a Brawler. During the first wrestling event, Kato’s head is split wide open and he receives 55 stitches to his dome. Determined to wrestle in the big match in Wichita, Puppet is forced to decide between Kato’s safety and pulling off a great show.

I have been traveling the world wrestling outside of WWE for the last few months. One of the things I look forward the most is running into old friends. Wrestling is like a very dysfunctional family,but we are still family. I haven’t seen some of my old friends in almost 10 years. As soon as I do, it is like we never left. When I was a kid, there was never any conventions or places to meet wrestlers, except at the matches.
Yes times have changed, but one thing that makes it all worth it to me, is the stories that the fans tell me. Their stories of how either I or ECW effected their lives. Even if it is for a couple of minutes, it makes it all worth while to me to hear this. I truly love meeting the people that watched me thru the years.
This Saturday, May 15 I will have the chance to do it again. The Legends of the Ring fanfest is coming to Monroe NJ. It is a chance to meet some of the people, that have entertained you throught the years. I as a fan of pro wrestling, also get to meet some wrestlers that I never have met before. I am bringing my Ivan Koloff and Jimmy Valiant books to be signed. I am gonna tell them thanks for making me a fan.
You never know what is going to happen tomorrow, you may not ever get the chance to see some of those people ever again. I haven’t seen the man who trained me WWE Hall Of Famer Johnny Rodz in forever. I look forward to seeing him personally.
If you need any other reasons to come to one of the larger wrestling conventions I have formulated a list of why I would personally want to be there and look forward in doing so.
1.For collectors purposes.The WWE Encyclopedia ‘s everyone asks me to sign. It is a chance to get them signed from people that rarely do any conventions. Rico, Ivory, The Mean Street Posse and I even heard A-Train is pulling himself away from the sushi buffet and he is going to make it. I hope I see a Hip Hop Hippo picture somewhere.
2. TNA owner Dixie Carter is going to be there. She is also going to be answering your questions. I don’t see Vince doing that at Wrestlemania Fan Axcess
3. Divas, Knockouts,Playboy Playmates are there.(sorry I am a guy) I will have my own Penthouse Pet and Playboy girl with me Beulah McGillicutty there.I hear she never gets out of the house.
4. Movie star Kurrgan of 300 and Sherlock Holmes is in the house. Hopefully he won’t dance.
5.You can tell Brother Love how much you LOVEEEEE him or hate him depending if you know him or not.
6. WWE Hall Of Famer Gerald Brisco you can tell how much him and his brother meant to tag team wrestling.
7. Over 12 people that held World championships.
8. Current TNA talent will be there representing their brand
9. WWE HOFers will be there
10.Many trendsetters or people that did it first will be there. Before John Cena brought his Thuganomics to the world of wrestling P N News was Yo babying on the scene. The first Diva Sunny. The first female ring announcer Mike McGuirk
Finally if you are getting sick of reading my lists of why I think you should attend this Saturday Legends of the Ring Convention. Stevie Richards is going to be there. I heard he is a Doctor now. He can cure your sickness
Thanks for reading
