The Micro Wrestling Federation Returns to the Owensboro Convention Center in 2024!
Full Confession, I missed out when the Micro Wrestlers came to town last, and I have been beating myself up ever since. I heard it was an absolute blast of epic proportions. Even though the wrestlers are all under 5 feet tall, they pack a mighty punch!
Luckily, if you're like me and have regrets fueled by your FOMO or if you want to experience the excitement again, The Micro Wrestling Federation is busting back into the 'Boro on Friday, January 26th, 2024.
JT Pedley, Senior Sales Manager at the Owensboro Convention Center has been involved in the local wrestling scene over the years, and he told how much he loved the show the last time they were here, "It sold out 1500 seats before we even opened the doors. The cool thing about the show is that the wrestlers are the ones taking tickets, taking pictures, and hyping up the crowd." You interact with them before they take to the ring, you get to know them and become invested in how the match turns out.
The athletes go ALL OUT to perform their death-defying stunts and suplexes with charismatic characters. The event is described as " pandemonium as the Micro Wrestlers body slam, bear hug, and headlock throughout an evening of nonstop action." If you are a wrestling fan, you'll enjoy an experience that promises to be on the scale of legit WWE matches, brawls, and ruuuuumbles! Here is a slo-mo highlight reel from the show.
According to their website, "The Micro Wrestlers have been featured in Sports Illustrated Magazine, Country Music Television, and the WWE. There is no denying that the Micro Wrestling Federation is the number one Little Person wrestling organization on the planet - high-flying, body-slamming, and off-the-top rope!"
Their home base is The Microtorium in Pigeon Forge, but they have this traveling show down to a science. With a huge following on TikTok of over a million followers, WWE superstars even come to watch them. "One of the best things about the show to me is that the performers have as much fun as the crowd does. They are excited to come back. Owensboro treated them well." JT said, "The convention center is a very fun place to be!"
You definitely don't want to miss who takes home the championship belt at the end of this incredible night! This is an all-ages event, so bring the whole fam. Tickets start at $23.99 or $45.99 if you want in on the Ringside excitement.
