The Micro Wrestling Federation (MWF) is returning to the Owensboro Convention Center this week. Like its WWE prototype, the full-scale micro wrestling operation features high-flying, hard-hitting pandemonium; the only difference: the entire cast is under 5 feet tall. 

The event will run from 8-10 p.m. on January 26. Tickets start at about $24 and are available here

Fans can expect body slams, bear hugs, headlocks, and more for some non-stop and up-close action. The schedule consists of two singles matches, a micro brawl (where fighting transpires all over the venue), and a micro rumble, which follows a “last-man-standing” format. 

Leaders formed the MWF in 2000, marking the longest-running federation in the Little Person wrestling industry. The MWF website reads, “The Micro Wrestling Federation has been imitated without success as we are the original ‘MICRO’ professional wrestling organization.”

“Sports Illustrated,” Country Music Television, and the WWE have all featured Micro wrestlers. 

The organization travels from coast to coast, rallying off more than 200 shows per year, including 4 shows per week at its 300-seat arena – the Microtorium – in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Find out more about the organization on their website.
