The show at One Eyed Jack’s was a big time big top success raising $3,000 for Liberty’s Kitchen, our highest amount yet! Their wrestler, Lady Liberty, took home the gold(en trophy). USA! USA! Hot Sauce put up a tough battle with a spicy, sassy entourage backing her the whole time. Sriracha never looked this badass.
The crowd got a little lesson on what it means to be Midwestern. OMAHA, NEBRASKA really, really represented. There was corn everywhere. Shoutout to our sisters from Austin, TX: Gina Tonic and the Cheer Squad. All the wrestlers were incredible from Lil Night Mer’s rejection of convention to Plague from the Hague’s impressive clog dancing. The Pelican Brief had the whole package: undies, feathers and clever signage. Birthday Sex offered an explanation of ALL the options consenting adults have on their happy day. Our Bribe Babe created a spectacle by wrestling her twin. Was it Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum who had the sister victory? Could you tell? Do they know? We don’t know.
Big thanks to the entertainment with a hilariously lovely performance by Trixie Minx and Niki Frisky’s defiance of gravity, plus a hoops act by Niki, Summer and…a dancing banana. Celebrity judges Miss eNOLA Gay and Miss Asa Metrical handled the tie breaking via tough trivia and aerobic exercise. There was even some locomotion commotion. XOXO to DJs Justin and Brian, all the business who donated prizes, the entourages workin to collect all that dough and our beautiful, generous audience. Your support keeps it all rolling. Amid the hoopla, we said farewell to our wonderful MC Charlie. NO LAW is going to miss you so so much. Best of luck in all your future endeavors. Bring some of dat bounce to DCLAW.

$1,500 to the girls program at Covenant House from the Matriarchal Mayhem Maytime Brawl! Big ups to DJs Justin Thomas and Brian Boyles, Howlin Wolf, photographer Katrina Arnold, Celebrity Judges and all the amazing wrestlers and their entourages. Also, mad thanks to Kristen Schaal, of The Daily Show and 30 Rock fame, for hanging with us. She bested our Referee arm to arm and kind of maybe sort of not really got married. We love you. Kristen Schaal is a horse.
Really the biggest surprise of the night though was Grandma Foots’ transformation from shuffling little old lady next door to a neon colored dancing arm wrestling fiend. She had us all fooled. Thanks for the long con, Grandma. She made it all the way to the final round but was defeated by new champ, Cosmic Crusher. Space power took home the gorgeous trophy from the girls at Covenant House. Our other wrestlers were on top of their game too. Babe Lincoln and her Vampires treated the audience to teeth and campaign swag. Pillar of Assault got some Snookie loving and the Second Wave showed Bingo Cunninglino what old school feminism is all about. You all rule.
Join us this Saturday at One Eyed Jack’s for Rights of Spring, a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood with Fleur de Tease. Cover is ten bucks for some amazing burlesque, ladies arm wrestling booth and erotic readings of Roe v. Wade. Doors at 9, show starts at ten.
NO LAW is going on the road! We head to Charlottesville, VA in June for SuperCLAW. This will be the first ever national ladies arm wrestling championship, bringing together leagues from all over the country. Sistah Mary Slammer will be repping us hard and we want to win! More information and excitement to come.
Big thanks to DJ Justin, our photographer Katrina Arnold and The Rusty Nail! Also to Trixie Minx and Oops the Clown for their opening performance, PLUS all the wrestlers who put on an amazing show! We raised $1000 for Women with a Vision and folks got to hear about the amazing work they do to challenge the totally wack “Crimes Against Nature” law. If you want to learn more/get involved/know what’s up, check out the WWAV website.
The smack talk and theme songs were at their most epic this time around. Doris Doomsday returned to try and teach new contender Ice Cold some manners, but Ice bested her and went on to the final round. It was Sister Mary Slammer though with all the power of the lord behind her who became our new champion. She even beat a fellow woman of the cloth to to smite the competition in the end. Amen. We like to give our crowd what they want so a special brawl between Cherry Popeye and celebrity judge, Yoko Ono was bankrolled pitting celebrity v. cartoon character. Yoko bested the peppy sailor but not before they gave us a dance off fit for the rapture. Watch it all here!
Save the date for your next chance to be this close to glory, Steamy Summer Brawl will be July 16th back at the Nail. We’ll have hot new merch for sale, including NO LAW bandannas to wipe the sweat from your tan brow or use as a coozy on your frozen disco lemonade.
