Action from last year’s event
This Saturday at 9 p.m. get ready for some sloppy takedowns, body slams and a slew of half-naked women. No, I’m not talking about the possible resurrection of the XFL (stupid NFL lockout). I’m referring to the return of Whiskey Creek’s annual Jell-O Wrestling Tournament!
This female empowering event combines three things that I always have room for … beer, sports and heckling. Speaking of which, this year’s bout will feature master of ceremonies Craig Balogh returning to the announcers’ booth for the play-by-play. Side note about Balogh, the guy has a tattoo of WWF wrestler Rick Flair on his forearm. So, needless to say, he takes his Jell-O wrestling about as seriously as Marzonie takes his pond skim.
The host of the evening, DJ Rodney-O, informed the Sheet that this year’s Jell-O will again be a delicious raspberry flavor and is gluten free and non toxic!
“It’s a single elimination tourney, but this year we’re cutting it off at 16 contestants. We’re also going to try to do some weight brackets,” said Rodney, alluding to the beat downs administered last year by returning Amazonian goddess Allison Cheatham.
“At first I asked her if she wanted to help host the event, but she insisted on competing.” For those of you already placing side bets, Cheatham (aka AC Slaughter) has spent the off-season training in Tahoe with her roller derby team, so obviously she’s a heavy favorite this weekend.
Grapplers will face off for cash giveaways and fabulous prizes (sorry no dude wrestlers). Sign-ups are at 9 p.m. It is recommended that wrestlers bring a change of clothes and a towel… ehh that also goes for spectators. Summer drink specials will be in effect with $2 PBRs, $3 Wells, $4 “you call its” and half off bottles. There is no cover for this awesome event and look for photos post-event at www.thesheetnews.com.
