PWR Presents: SpaceSlam

[This Space Party and wrestling show is free to attend and all-ages. 21+ to drink. Content may not be suitable for children]

Space...

The heavenly firmament, the cold and inky galactic vice!
The nebular starhome, the yawning void, the dome of trapped lights!
Grandpa's night-ceiling, the big-time planet hole!

The Cosmos!

Forever it squeezes our tiny Earth - forever it taunts us with a hollow voice, a voice we are all born hearing. "Who dares venture into the forbidden darkness?" it says. 

Finally, after millenia of silence, we answer: "Us!" We scream. "We dare!" No more will we surrender to the angst of being an Earth-bound people! We will finally claim our destiny as children of the stars! Hey, the Galaxy, do YOU dare take on humanity... IN THE RING?!

WRESTLING...THE FINAL FRONTIER!

The Partyweight Belt has been stolen by a MYSTERIOUS SPACE QUEEN! We've gotta get it back, and the only way is to transform 4TH TAP BREWING CO-OP into a huge spacecraft. Once we're up there, why not PARTY LIKE NEVER BEFORE?! What radiant anomalies will we behold? What mysterious creatures will we encounter? How will our wrestlers match up against alien beings? Who will be the COSMIC CHAMPION?!

Plot a course to 4th Tap Brewing Co-Op on December 9th!

This galactic battlefield will behold planet-destroying competition by all our favorite Party Athletes:

Theodosia [Partyweight Champ], Dino Rida, Dan "the Man" Ziglar, Randy "The Eagle" Eagleman, Dadbod, Luigi Primo, Big Daddy Bolero, The Dumpster Babes, The Intergalactic Express, Chubby Uncle Juan and Puggin'Head, and many more!

PWR Presents: Slamhain IV

[This Fall Wrestling party is FREE and all-ages. 21+ to drink. Content may not be suitable for kids].

SLAMHAIN IV: THE BRAWL OF THE WILD

We had a really great spot picked out for this next one - a magical grove, hushed and peaceful! With Autumn approaching, what could be better for a party than an Enchanted Forest?!

But our car broke down on the way there! Instead of the Enchanted Forest, we set up camp in the EnSLAMted Forest!

This forest is HAUNTED!

This forest is so haunted, you can't believe it. The trees have twisted, scowling faces. Giant cobwebs stretch for miles. Witches tempt kids into their mouldering cabins...to cook them!

NO, IT CANOPY!

Forget about the rain forest, this is the PAIN FOREST! There's disembodied spirits, skeletons a plenty, twisted, clawing branches...

AND A WRESTLING RING MADE OF ANCIENT OAK AND VINES!

That's the spot! That's where the wrestling happens!

PERIOD!

Goblin suplexes...Baba Yagas doing backflips! Brownies and sprites bodyslamming eachother from tree to tree! It's crazy and illegal, as usual!

We're Goin' BOG WILD!

Exult with us in an Autumnal Equinox celebration! Let's tempt the forces of darkness and once again revel in their failure to consume us. Join your flesh to the vast root network that pumps and pulses with the heart of the night! The huge trees reach their nasty fingers up, up, up...But we battle below, drinking beer and wrestling hard!

SLAMHAIN 4...

BEWARE OR BE SQUARE!

Heed the BRAWL OF THE WILD with ARBOREAL ACTION.......
It's the The Night's Card!!!
****************************

Theodosia {PARTYWEIGHT CHAMPION} vs. Mrs. Fennenbaum:
HIGHSCHOOL EQUIVALENCY MATCH
-----
SCHOLASTIC SHOWDOWN! The Unfrozen Colonial Woman battles the Violent, Disgraced Public School teacher! If Mrs. Fennenbaum wins, she's the NEW CHAMPION! If Theodosia wins, she'll get her GED! And keep her championship! This is how GEDs work!
-----

A Midsummer Night's Prance
-----
Some forest nymphs are going to show us how to party! Prancing counts as wrestling, PERIOD!!! End of discussion.
-----

Ring Sanctification Ceremony w/ Gary
-----
In our flesh and in our hearts, the fire of wrestling burns. We must sanctify the cursed ring with two noble competitors. Gary, PWR's Greatest Satyr, will lead the ritual... But who will be his worthy opponent???
-----

Camping with Dadbod
-----
Dadbod will show us all his tips and tricks for succesful haunted-forest-camping. Can you survive the trials of the cursed wild with only one skull doorag, a moldy James Clancy novel, a cooler full of light beer, and a collection of Jethro Tull's greatest hits? "Listen to your Father, Honey," In this special segment!
-----

Pink Eye’s Garbageweight Challenge
-----
Pink Eye is one half of the DUMPSTER BABES tag team, and the holder of the GARBAGEWEIGHT TITLE! She's the queen of all dumpsters! She’s got an announcement about her belt - will any of us be left UNSOILED?!
-----

Dan "the Man" Ziglar vs. A challenger
-----
Dan the Man: Entrepreneur Superstar, ex-Partyweight Champion and a couple times the main enemy of all mankind! Recently, he's been beset by MYSTERY SKELETONS! Who are they, and where do they come from? If we can root out their necromancer, THAT would be a match! Also, what has NECROWEIGHT Champion Randy "the Eagle" Eagleman been up to? Just curious. Not even sure why we mention it.
-----

Big Daddy Bolero vs. Luigi Primo:
LUMBERJACK MATCH!
-----
Big Daddy Bolero - the tall tycoon from Dallas! Luigi Primo, an extremely Italian Pizza chef! BDB has narrowly avoided his last 2 scheduled matches with Luigi...but with an army of LUMBERJACKS surrounding the ring, there's no escape!
-----

Are of You Afraid of the NARRC?
-----
PWR's BEST FRIENDS FOREVER CHAMPIONS, the North American Railroad Commission, have a spooky campfire story to tell. They'll warn about the perils of friendship...and about a monster who roams the world, enforcing RAW TRAINLAW! Is this wrestling? Maybe...

Plus, you’ll probably see these great PARTY ATHLETES in action:

BENCH HORSE: The cruel horse, the horse who can bench press! He recently won a match forcing GARY to become his best friend! Let’s see where that goes!

Chubby Uncle Juan and Puggin’Head: Everyone’s favorite kid’s TV host and his puppet pal almost always end up accidentally wrestling!

DINORIDER: Who is the mysterious DINORIDER?! This masked hero harnesses the power of DINOSAURS for his mystifying attacks! After racking up a win against Dan The Man, I hope we seem him again!
