Alice McKay Building, Cloverdale Fairgrounds
Everyone in British Columbia needs to brace themselves, because an invasion of the “little people” is imminent as the Midget Wrestling Warriors, “Invasion” tour is slated to hit Surrey, B.C. at the Alice McKay building in the Cloverdale Fairgrounds on Saturday March 24th. The Midget Wrestling Warrior’s, a New York based company, has been running since 2014 and has already left a huge mark in the wrestling world.
Since the company’s beginning, The Midget Wrestling Warriors have invaded Canada with multiple tours, which includes stops in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba as well as tours throughout the United States. Featuring wrestlers from across North America; they are looking forward to a rousing reception when they invade All Star Wrestling.
New York’s own Dan DiLucchio, who wrestles by the name of Short Sleeve Sampson, is just one of the wrestlers on a stacked roster of reputed wrestlers from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico
“We have to prove our product,” said Sampson. “There’s a generation of wrestling fans out there that haven’t seen midget wrestling in person. I’m really excited to see that the Midget Wrestling Warriors has the roster depth and talent to really showcase what our sport is all about and the unique element that we bring to the table.” Others slated to appear on this upcoming tour include Prince Akeem (Canada), Mini Fussion (Texas), Rob The Giant(Boston), Mascarita Divita (Mexico), Loco (Texas), Sky Bird (Mexico), Mini Athor (Mexico) and they are joined by referee Bambi Hall (Vancouver).and emcee Scotty Sweatervest (Washington). Among these, Sampson has appeared throughout North America and Canada the most, with more than 19 years of wrestling to his credit. Sampson has been fortunate enough to work with the WWE, TNA and Hulk Hogan’s Micro-Championship Wrestling adding great visibility for his career.
Sampson has had an interesting career, filled with unexpected surprises. “I’ve always been athletic, I’ve always been involved in sports. But I have to be realistic, the NBA, NFL, MLB, or NHL isn’t calling me, because I don’t meet their height requirement” says Sampson. “I’ve found a career as a professional athlete, but there are those out there that will say that because we use the word ‘midget’ that we are being objectified and exploited. No! This is how I make my living – my goal is to be recognized not just as a midget who wrestles, but as a good wrestler that happens to be “short”. So, let’s be straight with each other and drop all these politically correct labels – we’re called midgets!”
