AUSTIN (KXAN) — A new underground group has become one of Austin’s latest wrestling spectacles.

Party World Rasslin’ is a group that mixes wrestling and theatrics, with participants donning costumes and adopting characters during the matches.

Though the members of the group say it’s just something fun and out of the ordinary to do, the stunts are real. Some of the wrestlers have left the ring with bruised ribs and bulging discs.

To help ensure safety, the group has enlisted the help of a professional trainer.

Party World Rasslin’ will be part of a free wrestling event called Slamhain Wresting Saturday, October 8. It will be held at 4th Tap Brewery off Metric Boulevard from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. All ages are welcome at the event.
