I love this town. New York is the Mecca of professional wrestling. It’s the most important city in the history of WWE and has hosted a wide variety of independent wrestling over the years. Wrestling fans take their sport very seriously up there and will be seeing WrestleMania 35 there in just a few months. However, I doubt they’ve seen something like this recently.
That’s certainly a new one. Check out some very dedicated wrestling fans doing what they love:
A group called Subway Mania features fans cosplaying as wrestlers and staging matches on New York City subway cars. These have included everything from regular matches to full on Royal Rumbles, though in this case it was a triple threat match between Kane, Steve Austin and Triple H. The match even wound up spilling outside of the subway and winding up on the streets of New York City.
Opinion: I’m not sure what to think of something like this but it’s certainly unique. If nothing else it shows you how incredibly dedicated the people involved really are. These people are willing to put together these costumes and perform in public, which isn’t something a lot of people would do. That being said, it could be very, very annoying if you’re not a wrestling fan and just want to get where you’re going in peace.
What do you think of something like this? Is it more annoying or impressive? Let us know in the comments below.
