SNOHOMISH — The “Dwarfanators” are coming to town, proving that size doesn’t matter in a ring.
“It’s like WWE Wrestling but pint-sized,” said David Wells, owner of Franklin Farms.
His Snohomish tree farm is the venue for “Extreme Dwarfanators Wrestling” on April 27.
The show claims to have “high flying aerials” and “death defying maneuvers.”
Wrestler names include Stomper, Mr. Nice Guy, Boombox and Lil Papa Pump. The masked wrestlers perform the Mexican cultural and historical art form of lucha libre in the ring at shows nationwide. The group has performed at bars, clubs and arenas for over 10 years.
“We already have sold 400 tickets,” Wells said.
The show is for people 21 and older.
Wells, a former tugboat captain, and his son, Blake, bought the 23-acre tree farm property several years ago.
“We’ve been cleaning it up,” he said.
Wells plans to have car shows, concerts and weddings at the venue.
“We’re going to try to mix it up a little bit for different types of events,” he said. “We want to take this tree farm and turn it into something the community can enjoy.”
He said the “Dwarfanators” has good reviews.
“A guy I came in contact with is a promoter and he went to a show last year at a place in Seattle and said it was an absolute hoot,” Wells said.
Doors open at 6 p.m. The show starts at 8 p.m. For tickets, go to www.tickettailor.com/events/dwarfanators/872826. Advance admission is $25, or $40 for ringside.
