Scenes From Last Night's Wrecking Ball Wrestling Event At Sons Of Hermann Hall.

Once again, Sons of Hermann Hall was filled with the sounds of grunting, shoving and bodies flying through the air — only this time it wasn't because Power Trip was playing a show there.

Rather, last night the pro wrestlers of Dallas' Wrecking Ball Wrestling came together to semi-realistically pummel one another in order to raise money for one of their own, one Coach Steve Medina, who is in need of a kidney transplant.

And in any case, there aren't too many better ways to spend a quiet Monday night than watching live wrestling from ringside with a cold beer in-hand. The timing couldn't have been any better, with excitement still high less than 24 hours removed from WWE's 27th annual SummerSlam pay-per-view.

While there weren't any future Brock Lesnars in the house last night — or anyone else who you'd accuse of taking steroids, for that matter — there was plenty of action going on. Highlights included a six-man tag match between Lumberjack, Van Johnson and Billy Bong against Gene Valdez, Ace in the hole and Jack Castle. Those six bodies took up just about the ring's entire real estate, the volume of the slapping and beatings they were delivering one another rivaled only by the loud oohs and ahhs of those sitting ringside. By the end of the match folks were jumping out of their seat with each successive blow.

Even that paled in comparison to the night's main event between Lazarus and Flying A-hole. And, yes, the latter really lived up to his billing, cracking wise about having to fold his shirt neatly before the match and later pretending his nipple was injured.

The match took a good 45 minutes — and a little cheating from Lazarus' manager — to decide. Despite his name, Flying A-hole was clearly the crowd favorite, and they let their displeasure with Lazarus' victory be known with a chorus of boos.

It was no matter, though, and it didn't seem to make Lazarus appreciate his newly-won belt any less.

Nor did it put a damper on the wonderfully thrilling evening, either, really.
