Collin Makamson presents The Art of Grunt and Groan: Professional Wrestling in World War II
Though the action was largely fake, the contributions of professional wrestling in World War II were very real. Wrestlers in the United States toured and starred at large bond rallies. Others were even hired by the Army to provide instruction in hand-to-hand combat, while future mat legends were serving on the front lines around the world. Come discover the difference between a "heel" and a "face," how to generate "heat" and get "over" with the fans, as well as how many of the most famous wrestling stars of 20th century started out working for Uncle Sam- just in time for Wrestlemania!
Lunchbox Lectures are free and open to the public on every first and third Wednesday of the month. For more information, please call 504-528-1944 x 484.
