Spider-Man Gets Body-Slammed By Bane Because Indie Pro Wrestling

Few sports–or, rather, forms of sports entertainment–are as misunderstood and maligned as pro wrestling. But it’s also one of the most physically demanding and unforgiving physical pursuits ever, with even less chance of payoff than, say, professional marathon running or something. There’s really only one pro league that pays big money–the WWE, naturally–and contracts for that are thin on the ground.

So one independent pro wrestling federation has taken the indie-circuit struggle and added some fun to it, by wrestling as your favorite superheroes, and other comic book/pop culture heroes and villains. But spotting these guys is like spotting the equally fictional unicorn–this federation, Florida Super Championship Wrestling, only pops up at fan conventions.

So did Spidey go down at their last exhibition, at Florida Supercon? Check out our video to find out.
