"Local artists William Daw, Sean Wárs, Hannah Bitowski and Golden Harvest Industries come together to form a stable of unstoppable heels and present to the world -As you can tell I didn't write any of that, for a start at no point is the word 'fuck' used. We're doing an exhibition about the best sport ever, it'll be open for a while and everyone should come and have a look, but right now I should be drawing shit and not blogging nothing (also, that shit picture of The Rock isn't in the exhibition so don't worry!)

KAYFABEMANIA explores the tragedy, squalor and totally great exciting fun of wrestling and wrestling fandom.”Kayfabe” is the pro-wrestler’s code of silence, the act of keeping wrestling’s fictional elements going outside the ring and protecting the tricks of the grappling business from the fans.
Come and see new wrestling themed work, from crocheted lucha libre gear to huge wooden grapplers locked in combat and some literal interpretations of Hulk Hogan's most outlandish boasts. The exhibition also features a Kayfabe Museum of rare wrestling ephemera and memorabilia, such as carefully preserved samples of Asian Mist and a semi-genuine Mister Socko.
Opening with a not-to-be missed spectacular, Thursday the 21st will treat you to an evening of real-life bad-ass in-ring professional wrestling and live music, from high-flying luchadors and grizzled brawlers, thanks to Liverpool’s own Infinite Promotions. Get down early to get a ringside spot you stupid mark. Entry to the opening event is £5 and gets you a free risograph-printed poster."
