The Ultra Violence of the Death Match Culture
“Hardway: The Legacy of Deathmatch Wrestling” is an incredible, in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at deathmatch wrestling, the performers, the brutal matches, weapons, and gruesome injuries. Jeff Waldridge, who produced, filmed, and directed the doc, along with lengendary deathmatch wrestler Madman Pondo, and up-and-comer GRaver talk about the doc, the deathmatch scene and culture, and some of their more brutal matches involving light tubes, pencil boards, vats of rubbing alcohol, pinecones, razor wire, barbed wire bats, and thumbtacks. They reveal how they got into deathmatch wrestling, why they love performing in this genre, some of their crazier injuries, ridiculous fan requests, and why they’ll never give it up!
