On Christmas morning, American families will gather in pajamas around their trees and gleefully open presents. Contrast this wholesome ritual with tonights Hardcore Holiday at the Fred Lippman Multipurpose Center, where wrestlers in spandex will gather around a Christmas tree and attack each other with gift-wrapped weapons (2030 Polk St., Hollywood).
The Extreme Xmas Tree Match,held by Division One Pro-Wrestling, pits Kevin Sullivan against the Sheik. Once Hulk Hogans sworn enemy, the 59-year-old Sullivan is a legendary Florida wrestler. The Sheik is an Arab-looking fellow in a keffiyeh. According to an online profile, hes uncontrollably violent and hates every single aspect of American life. Just recently he blinded a man with a fireball. Besides the main event, there will be nine other fights going on. The bludgeoning begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $12, or $5 for kids.
