Photo Essay: IWA East Coast “Acts Of Madness”

IWA East Coast presented “Acts Of Madness,” an evening of cultured professional wrestling, at The South Charleston Community Center last night. Today, PopCult takes a look at the action:

Below: Former WWE Superstar Joey Mercury pauses from telling the crowd how backwards West Virginia is to briefly extoll the virtues of Shaklee and the wonders of Multi-level Marketing.

The South Charleston Community Center was packed!

TNA Superstar, Homicide.

Homicide does something unpleasant to Omega Aaron Draven.

Then he has a calm discussion with the referee.

The Necrobutcher makes his way to the ring.

Necro lands a punch square on the jaw of Viper.

This is not the recommended use for steel chairs.

…IWA East Coast’s Founding Father, Mad Man Pondo!
