The Live Show
It's "Red" versus "Blue" as two opposing teams take on their opposite number on the mat. As one representative from each team wrestle, their fellow team members are there at the edge of the mat to encourage them with barracking and technique advice for better effectiveness against their opponent. Both teams that are watching their team-mate wrestle will create a lot of the show atmosphere by vocally coercing and coaching during the matches.
So in that respect the Wrestla-girl show is a self-sufficient spectacle and the beauty of the concept is the action is non-contrived allowing it to be performed again and again in the same location or audience because every show is different.
The Performance Space
The show should fit on an existing stage or ground space assuming the area is square enough. The dedicated mat size is 3.6 metres with an extra 2 - 2.4 metres surrounding the mat for extra safety space during the matches. That is needed for the rest of the team and compere. That is a total of 6 metres square.
The mats used come in 90cm square interlocking pieces with additional border and corner pieces. They are about 2 cms thick and fit together in a finished set that can be packed, transported and stored in a relatively small space.
Because of the connective nature of the mat pieces, more can be added to make the performance area larger as needed.
Pins or submission
Three versus three (or four versus four depending on the size of the show required.) Each match has a time limit and winner is by submission or option of adding "pin by five count" where the winner has her opponent's body immobilised on the mat for a count of five.
Because wrestling is so strenuous, it is stamina as well as strength that come into play. The idea is to pin your opponent down for a five count or get her to submit. A five count is obtained by one wrestler immobilising her opponent or pinning her shoulders and wrists down for a continuous count of five from the referee.
To obtain a submission one wrestler places her opponent in any legal hold that causes her to give in because it brings pain or she is immobilised. Each loss for an individual is a loss for the whole team as each submission to decide each match is worth a point to the final score. The suspense is heightened when a match or even the whole competition can come down to the last pin and time is running out as both girls are using every last ounce of their determination to win for their team and themselves.
Which team wins
A female referee is included for the safety and communication of performers. There is a 10 minute time limit for each match. Each submission is worth two points and each pin is worth one. And, for winning a match, a further two points is awarded to the team. The team with the most points at the conclusion of all bouts wins overall.
Wrestla-Girl is performed as a "Round Robin" competition. Each wrestler competes with every member on the opposite team once.
The team with the most points at the end of the round robin competition wins.
Enhancing the Visual
To allow audience in all parts of the venue to see the action that's taking place down on the mat, a close circuit camera can be used to show the action on a video screen.
An experienced MC comperes the Wrestla-Girl show and mixes sports commentation with comedy control to help create an entertainment spectacular that has all the ingredients needed for a power packed visual interactive show with a difference.
