Little Person Big Death

Just because you're little doesn't mean you can't die big.

- [screams]

announcer: SOME SAYSIZE DOESN'T MATTER.

IN THE WORLDOF MIDGET WRESTLING,

SPUD AND NIK WERE LIVING PROOF.

DESPITETHEIR PINT-SIZED PROPORTIONS,

THEY WERE GIANTS.

THEIR UNDERGROUND FIGHTS ALWAYSDREW A BLOODTHIRSTY CROWD.

[yelling]

THESE LITTLE LUCHADORESWERE ROCK STARS.

THEY FOUGHT HARD,AND THEY PLAYED HARDER.

- I DON'T THINKONE DRINK IS THE SAME

FOR LITTLE PEOPLE AS IT ISFOR AVERAGE-HEIGHT PEOPLE.

WE HAVE SMALLER BODIES,

AND THE ALCOHOL IS INTENSIFIED.

I DON'T KNOW--MAYBE THAT MAKES

FOR BETTER ENTERTAINMENT,YOU KNOW?

announcer: THIS NIGHT,IT WAS BUSINESS AS USUAL.

A COUPLE OF FULL-SIZED HOTTIES,

A BOTTLE OF BOOZE,

AND A CHEAP HOTEL ROOM.

- [moans]I'VE NEVER DONE IT

WITH A LITTLE GUY BEFORE.

- HEY, WE'RE NOT THAT LITTLE.

- [laughs]- I DEFINITELY THINK

THAT LITTLE PEOPLE DO WANTTO COMPENSATE,

AND THAT MIGHT DRIVE THEMTO DO THINGS

THAT MIGHT BE OUTLANDISH.

announcer: SPUD AND NIKMIGHT HAVE BEEN LITTLE PEOPLE,

BUT THEY WEREBIG-TIME HEADBANGERS.

- ONE, TWO, THREE.

- THESE GUYS ARE FRICKIN' CRAZY.- YEAH.

- THE BRAINHAS A REMARKABLE CAPACITY

TO SUSTAIN SOME INJURIES,

SOME BLOWS TO THE HEAD.

THERE IS SOME CUSHIONING,

SOME PADDING AROUND THE BRAIN,WHICH HELPS US.

HOWEVER, THERE'S A LIMITTO WHAT THE BRAIN CAN TAKE.

[cheering]

announcer: NO HOTEL ROOMGOT OUT ALIVE

WHEN THESE TWO WERE IN TOWN.

[cheers]

- READY FOR THE GRAND FINALE?

- YEAH!

announcer:THE DRUNKEN HALF-PINTS DECIDED

TO HIT THE WALL AGAIN.

- THREE, TWO, ONE.- GO! GO! GO!

GO!

[cheers]

announcer: NIK BUSTED THROUGH.

BUT, SPUD, NOT SO LUCKY.

HIS BIG HEAD HITA PART OF THE WALL

SUPPORTED BY A 2X4 STUD.

[cheers]

- WAKE UP!

WAKE UP.WAKE UP.

- YOU CAN GETWHAT WE CALL SUBDURAL,

WHERE ALL THESE BRIDGING VEINSARE GOING LIKE THAT,

AND THOSE VEINS BREAK.

YOU CAN ALSO HAVE DAMAGETO BLOOD VESSELS

WHERE YOU CAN BLEED,AND THE BLEED CAN TAKE UP SPACE,

WHICH CAN EVENTUALLY LEADTO HERNIATION AND DEATH.

- [screams]

announcer: SPUD WAS A BIG MANIN A SMALL WORLD.

BUT IN HIS FACE-OFFWITH A STUD,

HE CAME UP SHORT.
