Today on Playbook: The Wired World of Sports, Sol Neelman writes about Kaiju Big Battel:
When I’m asked what my favorite weird sport is, I always say Kaiju Big Battel. Always. And what is Kaiju Big Battel, you ask? Well, it’s the world’s only live monster fighting spectacle. Hello!Check out the article for pictures and video: Godzilla's Got Nothing on Live Monster Wrestling
“Kaiju Big Battel is a modern conflict of epic proportions,” reads the official Kaiju site. “Evil villains, menacing alien beasts, and giant, city-crushing monsters threaten to destroy the planet Earth. Who will save the helpless humans from total ruin?”
Who, indeed? A few heroes, of course. And some heroines. They must contain the havoc and minimize the damage as they fight within the arena of Kaiju Big Battel. Think Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah in the WWE with scaled-down papier-mâché buildings perfect for blindsiding opponents when the ref isn’t looking. Watch out for the Empire State Building, yo!
