Pro Wrestling Anonymous: Raising Awareness for UPWADS (Unconditional Pro Wrestling Addiction Syndrome)

Are you ashamed to admit you’re a wrestling fan but you just can’t get enough of a the sadism, the snarling, and the spandex? Well, don’t feel bad. We *make* wrestling here at Beyond Wrestling and we still find ourselves red-faced more often than not, and I ain’t talking about the proverbial crimson mask, if you catch my drift. But hey, that’s part of the charm, right? And get this – now there’s a place for people like us!

AS220 will be opening their doors for Providence-area wrestling fans on Saturday, December 27th from 9pm to 1am. This event is specifically designed for those of us who unconditionally love wrestling no matter how bad THIS BUSINESS-UH treats us. For one night only we have a safe haven where we can proudly congregate, champion the profound cultural impact of the genre, and bitch about Charlotte getting jobbed out to Nattie Neidhart on RAW.

ALL AGES are welcome so if you know anyone who lives in their parents basement within driving distance to Providence, RI, give them a heads up and a too sweet while you’re at it. This is a FREE event, but we highly recommend you bring a piece of wrestling memorabilia with you for a sports entertainment-inspired Yankee swap to kick off the festivities. Like, if someone buys you “Batista: I Walk Alone” on DVD for Christmas, maybe you can trade it for a best of Jumbo Tsuruta bootleg or something.

Throughout the evening we’re going to be showing select matches from 2014 Beyond Wrestling live events, providing director-style commentary on the behind-the-scene happenings, and answering fan question about how pro wrestling is made. In between bouts you can don the lucha mask and anonymously confess your #PROWRESLOVE to the Jerichoholics in the room. If the libations are flowing liberally we might even cap off the evening with an “open mic” wrestling promo contest with some pretty nifty prizes on the line. Oh, and you never know when a “human ring” match might pop up!

So whatchugonnadobrother when AS220 and Beyond Wrestling make a modest attempt to unite the closeted wrestling fans of Providence?
