The Baddest Little Show on Earth for Midget Wrestling

The Extreme Midget Wrestling Federation has been touring the US since 2000 bringing unique shows from talented and action packed midgets. They have been around the country in bars and clubs to cater to sport enthusiasts around the globe but minor setbacks still happen like the Missouri incident where paper work and other legal matters hinder midget wrestlers to perform.

It has always been a challenge for the midget wrestlers to be accepted in the industry without being questioned about the quality of their shows. This wrestling federation aims to continue what has been started by the legends of midget wrestling and to help these dedicated wrestlers achieve that dream.  They need more sponsors to support their team and in order to do that they have to be allowed to perform without prejudice and bias.

A History: Midget Wrestling With A Big Dreamer

One of the pioneers of midget wrestling was Sky Low Low (July 21, 1928 – November 6, 1998) who was a Canadian who became a professional midget wrestler in the 1950s. Born as Marcel Gauthier, Sky Low Low was only 42 inches tall weighing 86 pounds. The Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame has paid tribute to Sky Low Low for his contributions to midget wrestling.

Sky Low Low: Midget Wrestling Champion

Sky Low Low was the first to own the National Wrestling Alliance's World Midget Championship. He was also known as "The Little Atlas of the Wrestling World" who travelled constantly around the world fighting with the best midget wrestlers around the world under the management of Jack Britton. He was also popular for his tricks such as a hundred dollar bet where he challenges other midgets to beat him in a two out of three falls match. One of his most memorable fights was with Little Beaver in a match for Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.
One of the signature moves of Sky Low Low was called the "dropkick" move in midget wrestling. It is an attack that kicks the opponent after a high jump. This move was easily performed by wrestlers who had the ability to attack the opponent. Sky Low Low was able to use this move because of his size and light physique.

Sky Low Low as an Inspiration in Midget Wrestling

Sky Low Low was a champion until the end of his career. He was inducted in the Stampede Wrestling Hall of Fame, One time Champion in the National Wrestling Alliance, and The PWI Midget Wrestler of the Year. He died in 1998 of heart attack but inspired many hearts because of his notable contribution in midget wrestling. An inspiration to his fellow wrestlers, it was a sad day in wrestling when he passed away at the age of 70.
Midget Wrestling faced a number of controversies when it started.  Sky Low Low was one fighter who pursued a dream bigger than his fears.
