This week in weird wrestling: Lego death match, giant pandas, Matanza & Pentagon cosplay, and Stroke Daddy

New, comments

The wide world of wrestling can be a weird place, and it has been one of those special kind of weeks. I didn’t think Rosemary killing a lizard-man, barbarians, and undead brides on Impact’s Against All Odds could be topped on the weirdness scale. I was wrong, and I’m so glad that I was.

Let’s get weird.

SB Nation’s Marc Raimondi will start us off with action in a Lego death match from Korakuen Hall in Tokyo.

Stepping on a Lego is painful enough. I can’t imagine how uncomfortable it is being suplexed onto a Lego stack.

That wasn’t the weirdest thing on the show Raimondi took in. There were also giant panda mascots in a match.

I bet panda-monium broke out in the crowd during that bout.

Wrestling is full of fan fiction and cosplaying, but I never thought of pairing Lucha Underground’s Matanza and Pentagon DARK as a romantic duo.

Um, yeah. More power to the couple for having fun. Shout out to Vinnie Massaro for the find.

My favorite weird wrestling item of the week was mentioned by Taya. Cagesiders far and wide, it is my pleasure to introduce you to Stroke Daddy. “He personifies what it means to be sensual, debonair, iconic.”

That video cracks me up. He also has awesome videos for the hotline 1-800-Starksline and a special presentation montage of cheesy scenes.

I was looking into Ricky Starks’ career and he has been a champ in Anarchy, Inspire, Lone Star, and WrestleCircus promotions. Starks has even had spot appearances in WWE, most notably being bullied by Ryback. I hope his recent video productions open opportunities for Stroke Daddy.

What has been the weirdest thing in wrestling that you saw this week? What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen in wrestling?
