Crazy Lucha Libre Wresting Show | Oakland
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Oakland Metro Opera House | 630 3rd Street, Oakland, CA
Despite all outward appearances, Hoodslam is not a wrestling show. A live-action, comedy, performance art and athletic stunt presentation with a cast and crew as diverse as The Town itself.
On June 1, 2012 there will be live music with your emcee for the evening Ike Emelio Burner, plus top notch commentary by JCW Senior Official the JuggalOG Kevin Gill, and should be Tough Enough winner A(aron) J(ames) Kirsch.
Yes, you can drink. No, you should not bring your kids.
As the temperature rises, so escalates the mercury that measures that hatred within Hoodslam. As always, details are still pending on this major event, but we can tell you this much so far:
Scott Rick Stoner v. Rick Scott Stoner
Last winter the team split, and as the seasons change the rage grows stronger. At Drinko De Mayo, Rick Scott’s team won the 5 on 5 elimination, meaning that he will get to pick the stipulations when these two finally go toe to toe!
DARK Sheik/Johnny Cage v. Scorpion/Mystery Partner
DARK Sheik was able to claim a victory over the legend of mortal combat, but it was a hollow one at best. Due to a distraction from Johnny Cage and some dirty technique, Scorpion was thwarted in the battle of undead warriors, but the fighting spirit still burns.
The Trial of Juiced Lee
Last event, we were introduced to the players; the honorable Judge Dredd will preside over the hearings, Gordy Bombstein will act as the prosecution, and Harvey Dent, brought in by the DARK Sheik, would play the absentee Juiced Lee’s defense attorney. At June to Remember, the trial will move forward, and the fate of one of Hoodslam’s most popular performers hangs in the balance.
Gauntlet for the Gold(en Gig)
Hoodslam is all about competition, and climbing the ladder. And drugs. And alcohol. And a lot of other things. But it’s about competition too. Who will stand at the top of the proverbial mountain? The ring is more of a plateau, but still, the raised platform of victory will be the celebrating grounds of one lucky Hoodslammer!
Golden Gig Gone Wild
Champions Rasta Mysterio/Super Tiger/Anthony Butabi (with the Pink Panther) v. Challengers Hornswaggar/El Chupacabre/Otis the Gimp
Hoodslam ain’t no dummies, and we know entertainment. That’s why we’ve brought together this all star team of Chupy, Hornswaggar, and Otis! All three are major favorites in the hallowed halls of Hoodslam, and all are competitors of the highest caliber.
ALSO: The James Gang, Super Red Rhino 2099, Lucha Magnifico, Brittany Wonder, and the rest of our funky bunch.
