"Extreme Midget Wrestling" Is Alive And Well In Houston, Texas

Submitted by: fancylad 7 months ago in Entertainment Sports Weird

Political correctness? In Texas? Nope. Here's what the league's Midgets vs. Dwarves match looks like. Known as "the baddest little show on earth," the Extreme Midget Wrestling Federation brings an evening of body slamming, flips, and chokeholds.

I dated a midget for a while. I was nuts over her.
But we broke up 'cause she was always putting her nose in my business.

I thought "midget" was just a derogatory word for dwarf.

littlemissqt In older textbooks they were actually two different conditions.  A midget was perfectly proportioned, just small.  A dwarf was also small, but not properly proportioned.

Now they're pretty much interchangable, and usage of either will piss of some snowflake on their behalf.

Well, according to their official website this is not Houston-specific.
They actually tour in the entire US
https://extrememidgetwrestling.com/tour-dates/

And funny thing is, if you look at the Houston show (June 23), it is the cheapest one in the entire list, with tickets $15+ instead of $20+ for all the other venues.

Because maybe extreme midget wrestling is alive and well in the USA but needs price cuts to be appealing in Houston TX?

Houston is not a representation of all of Texas you know.  If that were going on in Austin it would likely get picketted and shut down pretty fast.  Here in San Antonio, not sure how well it would go over.  Probably have a lot of people all for it and a lot of people against it.  You gotta remember, Texas is huge.  The distance from Houston to Austin or San Antonio in most states would put you in another state.  So please, don't think that because something like this exists in Houston that ALL of Texas is like that.

Also, remember Katrina?  A lot of people from LA ended up in Houston and here where I am in San Antonio.  I remember after that happened, we had an immediate rise in crime, that stuck around.  Many of those people stayed here in TX.  So again, don't just blame all of TX for what a few idiots, probably originally from New Orleans, are doing in Houston.

waldo863 I am a Dallas girl myself, however I wouldn't want to watch midget wrestling. Not because I think it's demeaning work for the little people, but because it wouldn't interest me...It is tacky-I don't see too many of the Dallas residents in the area really going for it too much..Sure, I could see a bunch of drunk college kids going to it maybe, but not your normal Dallas resident..I just can't see it..And Houston is well...It's Houston LOL..

waldo863 Well, actually all large cities in TX have about the same demographics now, and the same "political awarness". Of course Austin and nowadays Dallas are a bit more progressive than Houston or San Antonio but it's not Lubbock!

Well nothing wrong with that, at least they're fighting someone their own size.

fuad119 Nothing wrong with that?  Can you imagine being one of these little people and having difficulty finding a job.  So another little person comes up to you and says, "You know, I know a place where you can get a job and make decent money, as long as you are willing to demean yourself and all other little people."  Sure, I'd take the job too because the money is there, but I'd feel really bad about it every day.

waldo863 -Have you personally spoke to any of the above shown? Do you have positive proof they do not wish to do this? Feeling bad about it does not speak for them. You have no idea about how they feel about doing it- they may love it. Just a thought.

waldo863 How is this different from WWE? Also at least it is not midget tossing, now that I won't stand for.

fuad119 I don't think the dwarfs being tossed stand for it either, makes it harder to toss them
