Boo: Live Monster Wrestling

Welcome to Kaiju Big Battel

I'm going to blame this one on my friend and colleague Adam Testa (@RingPostsTesta on Twitter).  He sent me the following video about Kaiju Big Battel (yes that's how they spell Battle).  I know little to nothing about this company, but I know it looks entertaining as hell.  The official website describes the company as Live Monster Wrestling.

The best I can tell it looks like Japanese monster movie meets wrestling in an MMA cage.  There are many colorful and disturbing characters that are a part of the show, and Chikara fans may recognize Dr. Cube and his involvement in Saget-Gate from years ago.  He's the apparent heel of the company and weighs in at 12,200 cc of poisoned lead.  He has a posse of evil doers, including Dino Kang, Junior.  This dinosaur creature is 48,000 Picachus in height.  We can't ignore Gomi-Man who looks to be made of trash from Dr. Cube's lab.  He weighs in at more than 9,800 banana peels, but he's not won a match so far.

Some of the heroes in the company including the pseudo presidential type, American Beetle.  The very creepy looking Dusto Bunny, who is billed with a height of one billion dust mites.  There's also the tag team of Los Plantanos, not to be confused with The Plantain Twins (who naturally feud with their fruity cousins).

Then roster is also made up of groups called The Rogues, The Space Bugs, and there's a section on the website (click here) called The Graveyard where you'll find past stars who have departed the Monster Battle.

Obviously there's a huge focus on the entertainment value here.  I thought Chikara was campy the first time I saw it seven or eight years ago, Kaiju has them beat.  But honestly, it looks like a lot of fun and I wouldn't mind getting to one of their shows in the future.
