Documentary: The Minneapolis Wrestling Club

Yo, you got 17 minutes?

You'll need 17 minutes to watch this dope documentary about wrasslin' in Minneapolis.

If you know me, you know homegirl's a bit scrappy. For a two-month in my late teens, I considered taking up professional wrestling. My wrestling name was Luscious EsQuefunka. I had big plans for a purple satin cape with sequins. Needless to say, the following documentary has a lot of appeal for a bruiser like me.

The Minneapolis Wrestling Club is a 16mm documentary film about four old-school, Midwestern professional wrestlers. With roots in vaudeville and the carnival sideshow, early professional wrestlers were a rare combination of athlete, circus performer and thug.

Featuring: Joe Snyder, "The Texas Midget", Sodbuster Kenny Jay, Stan "Krusher" Kowalski, and Eddie Sharkey.

Directed by John Lightfoot
