From a press release:

All the fun and excitement of wrestling will come in a much smaller package when the Micro Wrestling Federation brings their live show to The Leonard Theater in downtown Scranton on Friday, Dec. 16.

The event is 18+, and advance tickets are $15. Doors at The Leonard (335 Adams Ave., Scranton) open at 8 p.m., and the stars will be available to meet before they hit the ring at 9 p.m. There will also be post-show festivities and “awesome surprises” for those who stick around.

There are millions of bands, hundreds of thousands of comedians, tens of thousands of strippers, but there is only one Micro Wrestling Federation.

The Micro Wrestling Federation is a full-scale, WWE-type event employing an entire cast under five feet tall. Founded in 2000, the MWF is the longest running organization within the little person wrestling industry; no other company has performed in more events over the last 16 years. The Micro Wrestling Federation has been imitated without success, as they are the original “micro” professional wrestling organization.

They are called dwarfs, they are called little people, and they are also called the most incredible minute athletes performing throughout the world. The Micro superstars have proven time and time again that even for those born with a disadvantage in height, dreams can still come true with diligent training and extensive hard work. Growing up, the Micro wrestlers have suffered through adversity. Each had been told that opportunities in the professional world would be limited, that locating full-time employment may be difficult. Apparently, that was not an option for the Micro superstars because they are living their dreams as professional wrestlers – high-flying, body slamming, and off the top rope!
