Friday: Wrestling!

At the very first Big Quiz Thing, lo those many years past, I asked the following question…

In 1987, Wrestlemania III became the largest pro wrestling show in history—93,000 in attendance. Who fought whom in the main event?

No challenge whatsoever for the real wrestling fan—'tis the jobber of wrestling trivia questions, so to speak. Over the years I've asked the odd pro-wrestling query (and posted the odd pro-wrestling missive: here's one, here's another), and become something of a minor expert on the topic. I like living in a one-bedroom apartment with a cat, I do.

Thus, I have been called. This Friday night, Friend of the Quiz Kevin Maher, host of the city's premier nerdtastic variety show, Kevin Geeks Out, is presenting a long-awaited pro wrestling edition, featuring a cornucopia of mat experts regaling the crowd with stories and philosophies (plus wrestling-themed cupcakes; yeah, I have no idea). And I'm on the roster: not with a trivia quiz (as I've done for many KGO editions past), but with a multimedia lecture on a topic dear to my heart, the stable of televised wrestling when I was a kid, the squash match. Here's a teaser…

A good time all around for anyone who honors the history of kayfabe, and at one of my favorite venues, 92YTribeca. This Friday, the 30th, at 8pm. Get tickets now, 'cause whatcha gonna do, Honky Tonk Man, when the show sells out on yoooooouuuu!!!
