Extreme Midget Wrestling

The "Baddest Little Show on Earth" is coming back to Spotlight 29 Casino on Saturday, April 29. This big-time show features wrestlers from the Extreme Midget Wrestling Federation (EMWF), with heights at four feet, 10 inches tall or under. The EMWF has been traveling around the country, and just like regular-sized wrestlers, they smack each other over the head with chairs, throw each other over tables and perform high-flying leaps from the ropes.
