Mongo Wrasslin’ Alliance

combining two of my favourite things, wrasslin’ and cartoons, [aduilt swim] recently premiered, Mongo Wrestling Alliance. the story of Rusty Kleberkuh, a college graduate, who becomes a pro wrassler. after working his way thru the West Valley Championship Wrestling territory, he’s called up to the Mongo Wrestling Alliance, where he looks to avenge his grandfather, who was betrayed by MWA’s booker.

this show is fucking awesome! I’ve only seen the first episode, but it looks like this is a serialized cartoon. 10 episodes of the face wrassler vs. the heel promoter. Tommy Blacha (Metalocalypse) created the show and supplies some voices. cast includes Pamela Adlon (King of the Hill) and the legendary Billy West (Ren & Stimpy, Futurama, etc.)

this show takes the over-the-top storylines associated with pro wrasslin’ and adds in some extreme cartoon violence. think of the animation style as Drinky Crow meets Assy McGee. judging solely on several wrasslin’ documentaries I’ve seen, Mongo Wrestling Alliance is a fairly accurate depiction of the indy circuit. lots of guys either on their way up, or on their way down. I’ll post a review of episode 2 in the next coupla days…
