A can of soup defeated a club sandwich in a cage, is what I witnessed Friday Night. Was anyone else at the Kaiju Big Battel, at Warsaw in Greenpoint, Brooklyn? A very funny mix of Japananese monster movie, plus WWF.

I love these guys. They've been doing this stuff for years now here in Bean-town. There was(is?) a yearly "Big Battel" at the MFA, right down the street from where I went to school. If you liked it I highly recommend checking out the videos.

Are the students the actual "wrestlers," or do they orchestrate the wrestlers? They were doing some very impressive stuff.

I don't believe they're students any longer. They actually are popular enough that they can do this for a living. At the couple of events I went to (when I was still in school) they did invite some people not part of the group to participate. Some did so well they stayed on...

I'm too tired to dig it up, but we discussed these guys before. I ordered up one of their t-shirts then ("Danger Can Happen!") and love it. They threw in a Dr. Cube sticker for free.

At first I thought this was another Lewis/Tyson link.

Can of Beans would have kicked all their asses.

I really wish they would come out with action figures. I would love to have such characters on my desk at work.

I wonder where these guys will go next. Broadway? Television? Comedy Channel? Bravo?

Yes...I went to the one back in April at MassART. Les Savy Fav played a set in the ring, dressed in wrestling outfits...very entertaining. A friend of mine was a fridge of some sort back in 1998 at a previous Kaiju. That evil psycho Dr. Cube has a quite a lot of supporters here...Cube grafitti and stickers were popping up rather frequently at clubs and on sidewalks back in March and April...

Good stuff.
