They have those huge belt buckles that they somehow win when they are on top. Someone is always trying to take it away from them. I don’t know about you, but if it were me, I would just go out and buy me a big belt buckle instead of getting slammed around like that. I’ve actually seen some truck drivers that wear belt buckles that big.
Some folks still argue that professional wrestling is not real. Well, just attend one of these matches and you might just come away with a different point of view. When you see how they pick each other up and slam them down on that canvas, you will probably change your mind. Bubba said that his poor old daddy went to his grave believing that we never went to the moon and wrestling is real.
If someone picked me up and threw me down like that, I know that I would break every bone my body trying to get straightened up before I hit the floor.
The professional wrestling is going on every Friday night in November right here in our very own Gladeville Community Center. (The locals like to refer to it as the Municipal Auditorium.) The doors open at 6 p.m. and the action starts at 7 p.m. To get to the community center, just come into Gladeville to the four-way stop sign (The only stop sign in The Glade) and turn south on McCreary road about 673 feet. It will be on your left. Free parking and plenty of handicap spaces are provided. If you are a banjo picker, you automatically get handicap parking. Just leave your banjo capo on your dash board in plain sight. They will understand and know you are handicapped.
A full line of gourmet sandwiches and cold drinks will be served from the in-house cafeteria. So, come on out, grab you an RC Cola or a Nehi belly washer, a Moon Pie, and enjoy the show. Just lean back in one of those comfortable folding chairs and take in one of the best wrestling matches you’ve seen since you were a child at the county fair.
Check your local listings for other excitement going on at the Community center. Don’t forget the turkey shoot at 1 p.m. every Sunday afternoon.
