Midget wrestling comes to Columbus this Saturday

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – You may have seen the commercials or billboards advertising Micro Wrestling Federation known as midget wrestling coming to Columbus.

This may seem politically incorrect and demeaning therefore News Leader 9 asked the assistant general manager of the Columbus Cottonmouths, who are hosting the wrestling group.       

Jason Bray says it would be demeaning not to have the wrestlers who travel around and show people that little people can be involved in sports. 

"Directly from the Micro Wrestling Federation, they are little people. We have five little people who are performing. They brand themselves as midget wrestlers. Obviously that is the way they brand themselves and they feel comfortable doing so," says Bray.

You can watch the wrestling after the Cottonmouths game against the Louisiana IceGators Saturday night at 6 pm and wrestling is set to begin at 8:45 pm.
